Hi, there. I am Mr. Rowley and was surrendered to GPRA by someone whose garage I sought shelter in. Imagine walking into your garage one day and finding me. Yes, I am one of those Pyrs that was either dumped or wandered away, and no one looked for me. 
 
GPRA thinks I was abandoned or neglected for some time because my fur was horribly matted, and my dew claws had grown into my pads, which really hurt. However, thanks to GPRA, I am receiving the best vet care and will soon be getting the magic grooming transformation. Just wait, after I get all gussied up, no one will even recognize me! 
 
Like all of the other majestic Great Pyrenees, I, too, am looking for my happily-ever-after! Here is what GPRA knows about me.
“Rowley is previous and very loving.” (Yep, I am so thankful to GPRA for saving me.)
“Rowley comes when you call him and loves to be petted while staring into your eyes.” (It’s my way to thank the kind humans who are helping me.)
“Rowley walks beautifully on a leash and is very friendly to all passing dogs and people that approach him.” (I will be a wonderful and faithful guardian to some lucky human. Are you my fur-ever?) 
 
Pyrly thankful and loving, Mr. Rowley

Hey, all. I am the loveable Oso Bear! Would you believe that I was surrendered to a Shelter because I kept getting out? All I want is to be loved, feel safe and find my very own fur-ever family.
GPRA’s dedicated walking volunteers are the most fabulous humans I have ever met, which makes me Pyr-happy. Here’s what they said bout me.
“Oso Bear is such a sweet, goofy boy! He saw a squirrel run by and did not seem too bothered. He is not overly interested in treats and prefers petting. He will Pyr paw you for pets. He is amazing on the leash and so sweet. I want to cuddle him all day!” (I want to cuddle with you all day, too!)
“Oso Bear is one affectionate dude. He greeted me with a big gentle hug and then an immediate Pyr paw!  (Aw -shucks. Thank you.)
“Oso Bear welcomed lots of petting at our first meeting. Sadly, he looks a bit rough and needs fur to grow back in places. But, with grooming, a bath or two, and good nutrition, he will be a very handsome boy!” (My Pyr heart loves all of these compliments!)
“Oso Bear is a very friendly Pyr. He is extremely light on the leash and heeled all the way. He did not react to nearby deer.  He needs 10 + pounds and is going to be one spectacular-looking Pyr!”
What else do you need to know to fall in love with me? How about you come to meet me?
Your Pyr-paw boy, Oso Bear 🐾♥️🐾

Hello, humans! Yeti Man here!  I’m a very loving and grateful boy! You see, if it were not for GPRA, I would not be here today as I was on the euthanasia list at the shelter. It is a horrible reality for many dogs like me. But, as you can see from my pictures, it is hard even to imagine such an ending for this happy, full of life and affectionate boy.
GPRA tells me that I am about to embark on a new beginning and lots of new learnings. Do you want to be my human who will guide me through all that is ahead? If yes, this makes me Pyr-excited. Here is what GPRA’s volunteers say about me.
“Yeti is tall, skinny, and has a coat more similar to a Labrador than a Great Pyrenees. He is very affectionate and loves to be pet, head to tail! He is curious when meeting other dogs and watches them with great interest. (It’s a whole new world out there for me, and I can not wait to explore it with my very own human.)
“Yeti easily jumps in and out of the car and prefers to lay down when the vehicle is moving. He is a little nervous, but this is understandable.”
“The leash is new to him, but he is learning quickly. Yeti will need an owner who will invest time in obedience training and introduce Yeti to new experiences. In return, Yeti Man will soak it all up with great happiness and affection.”
Pyr-ready for all that life has in store for me.
Your grateful boy, – Yeti Man

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 is helping me through an eight-week recovery. My sutures were removed, and I can resume normal activities in early August. I cannot 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 has been on restricted activity due to his leg surgery. He will be a good walker and very active when he can resume normal activities.” (Mid-August is just around the corner. Then, I can 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
