Hellos. My name is Sanabell, but my foster just calls me Belle because she tells me all the time I am beautiful and ‘belle’ is beautiful in French, and France is where my ancestors are from.
My former family moved and couldn’t take me with them. That made me very sad, but the folks at GPRA found me and well, here I am! I am ready to open my heart and paws to a family that can give me as much love as I give them – which is a lot!
I love to go on walks, and only pull when there is some good sniffing to be had – and I am a gold-star sniffer! I like to explore my surroundings, and am respectful of furniture. I was so excited to be in a home again I jumped on the sofa, but when my foster mom said down, I did, and decided to curl up at her feet for a rest instead. She told me I was a good girl for listening – but I didn’t tell her the real reason was because it felt really good to be under the breeze of the ceiling fan.  I mean – I’m a Pyr – I don’t want her to think I listen all the time!
I like to be where my humans are.  If you work from home, I will be your best office mate. (I just won’t get you coffee – I have double dew-claws, not opposable thumbs!)
I am friendly and loving, but sometimes I get so happy and excited that I worry if you have small children I might knock a toddler over, and I love people so much I wouldn’t want to make a little one scared, so I think older kids would be best. If you are an active family that likes hiking – all the better! I love riding in the car and going on hikes!
When I see other dogs I want to play!  My foster mom is gonna try to get me a one-on-one play date with another dog to see how things go, so watch this space! As for cats and other small creatures, I will want to chase them and bark at them, so best not to share a home with them.
I love to give and receive love, and once I feel comfortable with you I will roll over for tummy rubs. I know some basic commands:  sit, paw, down – and we are working on more every day.
I’d love to meet you and be your fur-ever companion.

Kiba is my name. Thank you for taking the time to learn about me. Since little is known about my past, I can share what I know since arriving at the GPRA. My friend, Historia, has already been adopted.
Similar to Historia, I am learning a lot from GPRA’s walkers and trainer. Here are a few glowing comments about me.
“Kiba is a delightful and fun-loving boy!” (Although my life has been very challenging and lonely, I still have a big Pyr heart!)
“Kiba is learning leash manners.” (Yep, the whole leash thing is totally different. However, I have learned that I get to enjoy walks when the leash goes on, which is totally awesome!)
“Kiba can be touched all over and is a total sweetheart of a boy.” (Yes, this love thing from the humans is also amazingly awesome! I never knew humans were so attentive and kind. All I can ask is, please keep it up!)
One more thing, it will be best if I am the only dog in the family. You see, I am still young and learning and need dedicated time, obedience training, consistency, and patience. Then, I’ll grow up with good manners and make you very proud.
As I learn more, I will update you. Until then, please come meet me. I’ll show you my belly and hope that you will not stop loving me.
Your friendly, eager to learn and faithful boy, Kiba

I’m Chase, a 3-year-old, 85 lb. GPRA alumni who finally knows what he wants in life: A YARD TO PLAY IN! I can be protective. Sometimes people visiting, cars, loud vehicles, storms, and strangers, send me into my protective mode. I need to keep working on that, but the good news is I’m very food motivated. I’ve even counter surfed a time or two but let’s be honest, what Pyr hasn’t? Thanks to GPRA’s most paw-somest trainer, I’m sooo much better! I’m an athletic, agile dog who needs time to be active. Did I tell you what a smart boy I am? I love to learn new commands and stay busy so I’ll need a fur-ever person who is committed to working with me and making sure I remember all of my skills. Can we at least talk about it? If yes, please email info@greatpyratlanta.com or click “Apply to Adopt” below.

Are you a dog-savvy human waiting for a giant Pyr? How about a 3-year-old, 120 lb. boy who needs an understanding new family? I’m housetrained, can be left alone for several hours, will chill in my open crate, and can “sit”, “stay”, “come” and get “down” on command. Car rides are awesome, kids are fun, and other dogs seem OK although I’ve never shared my house or family with another pet. Right now, I’m living with my mom and her new baby, which I’ll confess is not awesome. Human babies take a lot of attention away from fur babies and like so many Pyrs, I love human attention. I truly adore being adored even though it can take a whole day or so for me to warm up to new people or places. On the other side of that coin, I can’t get far enough away from thunder, fireworks, or other loud noises. You’ll find me panting, drooling, and desperately searching for a hiding place. Also, I’m not a fan of the “e collar” my mom puts on me now and then to “brush up on my barking and behavior” as she calls it. I much prefer a dog-smart, patient alpha human with a loving family who will snuggle with me endlessly while I gain more confidence and adjust to my new home. Please email info@greatpyratlanta.com or click “Apply to Adopt” below to tell GPRA you’re my alpha!

You’ve heard the saying a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step? Well, I’m Camela, a 3-year-old, 80 lbs. girl who took one too many steps away from my owner’s property and ended up with GPRA. So now I’m ready for a different kind of journey, one where I go from human to human collecting treats and ear rubs. Or maybe long walks where we’re both attached to the same leash, so I don’t lose you and you don’t lose me. I’d love to tell you more awesome stuff about myself so you fall hopelessly in love with me, but I don’t know anything else other than they say I’m good with other dogs. Hey, if you foster me then you’ll learn all kinds of things to share with potential forever families. You’ll be my “people voice!” Want to try?

Well, I’m only 3-years-old and a mere 82 lbs. but I’m ready for a big change in my life: I want to come inside. I could maybe use a few pounds, too but my main goal is to live in a house with ear rubs and treats and soft places to sleep. I was raised as a pasture dog and because I don’t know how to talk, I couldn’t tell my family how much I wanted to be with them. Also, my ears hurt all the time and while I don’t know why I was outside, the doctors have said they should be a whole lot better if I’m living indoors. In exchange, you’ll have a sweet, gentle, beautiful Pyr who loves animals, car rides, and people. I don’t react to other dogs when they pass through my paddock so maybe that means I like dogs, too! I’m kinda embarrassed to tell you I’m not housetrained. I know most dogs learn as puppies but remember, my family never brought me inside so…I’m going to need some patience and help in that area, too. I hope I’m not scaring you away, I just want to be honest because once I find you, I really want to keep you. Are you interested yet? If so, please email info@greatpyratlanta.com or click “Apply to Adopt” below.

I need a new home. You might think my family’s reasons are a bit shallow so let’s talk about the good stuff, ok? I’m a 3-year-old, 92 lb., girl who LOVES to snuggle on the furniture—which is very comforting when I hear those scary, loud noises. I also love doggie day care, car rides, toys, being inside, and other dogs. I’m gentle with children and usually stay out of their way. Maybe I’ll learn to play with them if I have the right people teaching me. Oh, I’m almost always house trained and I’ve home alone up to 12 hours without any problems. I’m indifferent to cats but there are a few things to consider as you fall hopelessly in love with my pictures: I hate going outside, which is why occasionally have accidents in the house. A little love and training will probably help this, and maybe you can teach me to not pull on the leash or bark at visitors?

I’m Charlie, a 3-year-old, 65 lb. smiley boy and am looking for that just right person to give me a world of attention and companionship. I will curl up right next you on your sofa and bed! I also really enjoy a calm and quiet home environment, so I would possibly do best with older kids in the home. I love to be where my people are. Oh, and if you have a cat that would be great. I love cats, and I miss my best friend who crossed over the kitty rainbow bridge. I enjoy walks and do love to run around and play, too. I know most pyrs don’t play fetch, but I can! I like balls, bones, and toys. I love a routine and a favorite part of my day is nice long walks and then a nice snuggle. I know I need a very patient dog-savvy owner because I don’t always like other dogs. Some are OK, some, not so much. I might be happiest being the only pup in the house. I can be a little timid in new situations and am working on my confidence with a little training while I’m here. I have other great qualities, too! I’m house trained, and I’m working on how to let you know that it’s time to go. I’m great left alone at home, unless there’s fireworks. I don’t love all that noise. I love being brushed, but I can be sensitive on my hind legs. I will need you to be gentle and until I know I can trust you. It takes me a little while to settle in and know I can count on you to keep me safe, but once I do I will be your most loyal companion. Actually, if you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com or click “Apply to Adopt” below, we can start right now. I’m ready to be your best friend forever!

I can crawl, shake paws, and high-five on command. Yep, I’m a 3-year-old, 89 lb. well-cared for boy who needs a new home. I do get along with SOME canine types and lived with two but, I’m ready to try life as the one-and-only, center-of-attention, cuddle-with-you-on-the furniture family dog. I’m house trained, walk well on a leash, enjoy car rides, and definitely like kids. I don’t think that I like cats but maybe we can test that out. I’m also afraid of fireworks and gunshots, and I need calming medicine (do humans call that sedation?) for nail trims. Oh, a couple things about food: I love yours so much I’ve been known to snitch it if I’m home alone and not crated but I do not share mine with other dogs. Red licorice has been one of my favorite snitches, and bananas. I really like bananas. In fact, I’m pretty protective of it. So, if you’re looking for an only Pyr to spoil, show off to your friends, and who can help you practice shaking hands for when you meet new people, I might be your guy. We can talk about it more if you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com or click “Apply to Adopt” below.
