Hey there. I am MAX. Max is short for Maximus, the Magnificent Great Pyrenees. Since I am still a young Pyr and in learning mode, to help me overcome some challenges, I will need an experienced Great Pyrenees owner. It will take a consistent and confident approach that includes lots of positive reinforcement to help me continue learning how to be a very good boy – even when I am stubborn, insist on doing things my way, or guard my food bowl.
Here is what GPRA volunteers say about me.
“Max is his FABULOUS self. He is INCREDIBLY loving and loves to be loved on.”
“Max is an absolute delight! He greeted me with a happy, wagging tail and lots of smiles.”
“Max knows the ‘sit’, ‘stay’, ‘come’, ‘off’, and ‘down’ commands.
“Since Max shows some reactions that indicate he may have been hit as a young pup, Max will need understanding, time, space, and patience to build his confidence and trust.”
“Max walks beautifully on a leash.”
So, yes, I need someone who will invest time in helping me, and I will do my best to overcome and be your magnificent Max!
Pyrly yours, Max

Hey! I am Mr. Brock. While I do not have a full coat of white fluff, GPRA thinks I am part Great Pyrenees and Anatolian Shepherd. As a new fella to GPRA, everyone is still learning about me.

Hey there. I am Jake. I’m a sweet boy eager to find a loving family.
My owner shared the following with GPRA.
“Jake has never met a stranger and is always a cuddler.”
“Jake’s coat is shiny and sparkles in the sun, and our groomer loves Jake.”
“Jake loves large nylabones, and his favorite treats are milk bones. And like a pro, he does not grab his treat but instead gently takes it from your hand.”
“Jake will walk on a leash forever as walks are his favorite activity.”
“Car rides are another favorite of Jake’s.”
So, if you like having a companion on walks and car rides, I’m your Pyr!
Your Pyr-sparkle boy, Jake

Happy day greetings to all! I am the sweetest Pyr that goes by the name of Izzy. My previous owner shared the following with GPRA.

“Izzy is shy but sweet. She is house-trained and LOVES to be outside. Izzy listens well and knows commands such as “sit” and “come.” She is also great with children of all ages.” (That’s a good start, right?) 
“Izzy loves milk bones and will always come for treats.” (Of course I do, what Pyr does not enjoy treats?)
“Izzy is leash trained and does very well with her leash manners. She is shy of new people, especially those wearing hats, and is always curious about other dogs on walks but is not aggressive toward them on leash.”
“Izzy is a very loving dog.” (Yes, I love it when my humans love on me.)
“Izzy will thrive as the only dog in the house that does not have other small farm animals or cats.”
So, that’s a bit about me. Let’s meet soon so that I can learn about you.
Pyrly yours, Izzy

Pick me, pick me! I am Ella. My foster family tells everyone that I am a sweet, young Pyr full of life and ready for the most loving of families. After only 48 hours with my foster family, they have already become quite smitten. You will too after meeting me. Here are a few things that GPRA has learned about me. 
 
“Ella is a joyful, very athletic, and elegant beauty. She needs continued, consistent training and will soak up every bit of training and affection you give her. She will blossom in the right hands.” 
 
“Ella is young and full of herself. A fenced-in backyard is on her wishlist as she loves running. After releasing some energy, she will be ready to learn with a dedicated owner.”
 
“Ella will bond very quickly with devoted and loving humans. She can be a bit timid at first in new experiences. However, as she gains confidence, she will become a confident Great Pyrenees.” 
 
“Ella has the makings to be an extra-ordinary Pyr. She has a heart of gold.”
Your Pyrly happy girl, Ella

Happy New Year, everyone! I am Puma. Now with the best Rescue family (GPRA) and in a loving foster home, I trust these good humans to find my happily ever after.
Here is what GPRA knows about me.
“Puma is great with kids and people. She is friendly, active, playful, and an easy-going family dog.
“A fenced-in yard and lots of walks will be great for Puma as she is a healthy, fit and active young dog.”
“Puma’s best friend was an outside cat that she often curled up beside for naps.” (Yes, I miss my cat friend.)
As GPRA learns more about me, I will update you.
Time to ring in the New Year together!
Your Pyrly beautiful girl, Puma

Good day to you! I am Festus. You probably remember reading about a sweetheart PYR hit by a car, suffering a severe break in the upper third of his femur. I am that boy! Would you believe that I even had to stay in a Georgia shelter before being released to GPRA? Upon being released to this incredible Rescue, I was rushed to an all-star orthopedic doctor for a three-hour surgery to repair my leg!
My Pyr-wonderful foster mom helped me through an eight-week recovery. My sutures were removed, and I resumed normal activities in early August. I couldn’t wait… Know what else I cannot wait for…? Yep, my very own loving family!
Here is what my foster mom wants you to know about me.
“Festus is a cuddle bug that loves his ears and shoulders massaged. Festus will lay his head in your lap for hugs and pets. He then lays down and rolls over for belly rubs. If I let him, he will try to crawl up into my lap.” (I cannot get enough love from my humans!)
“Festus has decided that his favorite thing is a frozen Kong stuffed with 3/4 kibble and 1/4 liverwurst or peanut butter!” (Am I just the luckiest foster Pyr ever? What Pyr would not love this delicious treat?!)
“Festus was on restricted activity due to his leg surgery. I am a good walker and very active now that I resumed normal activities.” ( I can now play and run and take lots of walks!)
“Festus is house-trained. He will pace in front of the door to go outside. If I do not immediately respond, he barks at me.” (I do my best to be a good boy in the house, and I have learned how to let my foster mom know that it’s time to go outside!)
“While outside with Festus one night, he completely ignored the three deer that were hanging in the yard. In fact, he just stared at them! However, when back inside, he barked three times and then went into the master bedroom and went to sleep.” (Yep, I thought those deer were harmless. However, I let them know that I knew they were there!)
“If I do not immediately hook Festus’ collar while getting him into the backseat of the car, he will crawl into the front passenger seat to be my co-pilot. My neighbor thinks it is hilarious to see him sitting in the front seat.” (Us Pyrs want to be front and center in our humans’ life. However, it is much safer for me to be secured in the back seat.)
While I cannot wait to be adopted, I am very thankful to GPRA and my foster mom for all they have done for me.
Pyrly grateful, Festus

Happy day wishes to everyone! I’m Sasha!

Hard to believe a beautiful, fun, and full-of-life Pyr needs a do-over already, right? Well, I do! With Pyrs like me, our learning curve can be a bit steeper. Just keep in mind that I am still a youngster that needs consistent guidance to continue learning good leash and house manners. My progress to date has included learning commands such as heel, sit, come, down, crate-up and place.

Belly rubs are one of my favorite things. I’m also house-trained, which is top on your list, right?

GPRA recommends a knowledgeable Pyr owner in a one-adult home and a fenced-in backyard for me. They also think it will be best if I’m the only dog of the house. With time, patience and consistency, I will get better at not needing to resource-guard my favorite humans. If you are willing to give me a chance, I will continue working hard to be my best Pyr-self.

Your still learning and Pyr-fun girl, Sasha

Good day wishes to everyone! I’m the affectionate and adoring Snowflake Rose. Unfortunately, even though caring humans made multiple attempts to get my owner to surrender me, I had to live a life filled with neglect. But, I never gave up hope, and through it all, I kept my loving Pyr heart!
Here are a few things that my foster family has learned about me.
“Snowflake Rose is by far the most loveable and attention-seeking Pyr we have ever had. She adores affection from both humans and animals (even cats)!” (Yes, sadly, I am making up for living an isolated, neglected, and penned-up life. But, not anymore, thanks to GPRA!)
“Snowflake Rose knows commands such as ‘sit, ‘come,’ ‘down,’ and ‘no.’ “
“The minute you touch or pet Snowflake Rose, she will close her eyes and Pyr paw you to continue. She very much loves companionship and physical touch from her humans. We have never encountered a more gentle dog than Snowflake Rose.”
“From the first day with us, Snowflake Rose is making great progress learning house manners and trusting her surroundings. But, when she gets unsure of new things, she gives us a low bark. It’s as if she is seeking our help and telling us she is scared. So, we take things slowly with Snowflake Rose.”
“Snowflake Rose loves attention so much that she kept our master gardener neighbors company all day as they worked on our shared property line. She moved with them as they worked down the line trimming back the landscaping, no barking, but instead, she was very content and curious watching them work throughout the day. She was definitely in her element, and her Pyr-happiness showed.” (Yes, for the first time, I am finally living and only now know what love, kindness, and happiness feel like.)
Pyrly grateful forever, Snowflake Rose ❄️ 🌹
