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?

For whatever reason, I really gravitate toward trusting male humans. So, if you are one of them and single, I am your girl.

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 ❄️ 🌹

Top of the day to you! I am Beluga! No, I’m not a whale, but I am a big, white, fluffy Great Pyrenees, emphasizing “GREAT”! I am also an immensely grateful Pyr to be with GPRA as shelter life was quite depressing. With the holidays soon approaching, my ONLY wish is to have my very own family. GPRA volunteers hear me crying now and then because they know I desperately seek human love and companionship.
Here are a few things that GPRA’s Pyr-fabulous walkers have learned about me.
“Beluga is very affectionate. So, he very much wants love and his own home so badly. He’s a big sweet boy! He will make a sweet cry now and again.” (Yep, my own family (and a comfy dog bed) are all I need!)
“Beluga is another social pup who wants to make friendly acquaintances with nearby dogs.” (Yep, I’m just a social guy!)
“Beluga “chatted” with each Pyr as we made our exit to the yard! He enjoyed exploring, and then we had a lovely time walking. He cried a little bit in the yard. He is a sweetie!” (I cry because I do NOT want you to leave ME.)
“Beluga is sweet, playful, and a great leash walker. He is also a handsome and BIG boy and still needs to gain weight.” (Aww, thank you!)
“Beluga will bark and pull on the leash if he sees/hears something concerning. He will benefit from continued leash work with lots of positive reinforcement.” (Thank you for your patience as I continue to learn how to make you proud of my leash manners.)
Pyrly wishing for my very own family, Beluga

Hellos. I am Tanya!
If you seek a lovely, friendly, and Pyr-sweet girl, then look no further because here I am. My previous owner really loved me but could no longer care for me. Before I was surrendered to GPRA, I slept in a van because my owner did not have other options. Now, I’m ready for a new family who will talk sweetly to me and keep me fur-ever.

My foster family is the absolute best. Here are a few things they have learned about me.

“Tanya loves new people and is very friendly.” (Yes, I love meeting and getting lots of pets from all the humans.)

“Tanya will make an ideal companion for someone who works at home and can take her on short walks throughout the day.”

“Tanya absolutely loves a fenced-in backyard and enjoys smelling the fresh air and just wandering around the yard.” (Psst…this is the secret to a happy Pry!)

“Tanya knows when it’s time for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. She will sit by her bowls or stand by the kitchen island waiting to be served dinner.” (Of course, I know when it’s time to eat, I’m a Pyr.)

“Tanya is somewhat of a couch potato. Her favorite thing is to sit on the outside deck or relax in her nest behind our rhododendrons!” (Most Pyrs claim favorite spots in the house and outside. My outdoor spot is very shady and even has flowers.)

“Tanya is still learning how to walk on a leash without pulling. We encourage her to take short walks several times throughout the day.” (I told you my foster family is the best!)

“Tanya loves to be brushed! She cannot get enough brushing.” (Yes, just keep brushing.)

So, that’s a bit about me. Now, it’s time to meet you!
Pyr-ready for the good life, Tanya

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

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
