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?

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.

Behind every beautiful thing, there’s some kind of pain.” I’m Dylan, a 3-year-old, 95 lb. boy, not to be confused with the Bob Dylan who wrote these oh-so-true words. If you’ve seen my Instagram pictures @greatpyratlanta, you can tell I’ve had more than my share of pain, but thanks to GPRA, I’m on my way to beautiful. My foster family and canine sibling are patiently following the vet’s directions, healing my mange, skin issues, ear infections, and soul. Everyone who’s met me says I’m a giant marshmallow. I guess they’re talking about the white Pyr fur growing in? Or maybe because I love food and can’t wait to be closer to my ideal weight? I’m so tall, the vet says I can carry about 140 lbs so yeah, I get to eat a lot!! Every day is a little better; every day my foster family and I learn a little more about my true personality. So, if you like the idea of having this Great Pyrenees shining bright in your family photos later this year–you should know I plan on being remarkably handsome–please email info@greatpyratlanta.com or click “Apply to Adopt” below.

I love people so much, being with them is my favorite thing to do! Beau here, a 3-year-old, 107 lb. male who needs a new family. Sadly, my elderly owners have to move to a no-dogs allowed place which means I’m moving, too. Fortunately, I’m house and crate trained, I know “sit” and “come”—which is a big deal for a Pyr!—I get along with other dogs, and you can leave me home alone without worry. I do bark at the doorbell, at least until I find out what’s (or who) on the other side. And here’s a bonus, if you live with someone who needs practice picking up after themselves, I’m your guy since I’ve been known to chew a shoe now and then. Oh, and my mom says I’ll growl if you take a bone away from me, but we can work that out because I’d much rather have people loving and adoring me than bones. So, while I’ve never met a cat, I’d really like to meet you. It’s easy, just email info@greatpyratlanta.com or click “Apply to Adopt” below. Please?

Hey ya’ll, I’m Craig, a three year old, 63 lb. boy who one minute was running with my two Pyr buddies and the next I was in a truck on the way to a loud building with a lot of cages. GPRA gave me a temporary foster family, which is way better than that other place. Plus, they have lots of food, which I really need to get back up to my ideal weight of BIG DOG. Also, my borrowed family seems to really like talking about me and since I don’t know much about myself, I pretend to be resting and eavesdrop. Apparently I’m sweet, handsome, energetic, will jump high over and over for treats, not aggressive toward other dogs, and will be great in a pack.  A pack of what I wonder?  My foster humans also say I like attention, don’t drool, enjoy running in the yard with them, walk well on a leash (yay, me), love people (true, true, true), I’m learning my house manners quickly (whatever those are), and I don’t seem stubborn like other Pyrs. Of course no one is Pyrfect, at least not right away, so I should probably be honest and share some of the other stuff, too. Even though I can’t talk, I’m a little mouthy and new situations make me very nervous, sometimes even scared enough to dash away. Last thing, I’m what humans call “in tact” so we can work on undoing the natural marking and dominance behavior as soon as I’m neutered.  I know, sounds like a lot but I’m a stray and well, until now I had to look out for myself. Maybe we can meet and discuss you looking out for me instead? You talk while I stare at you adoringly until I win your heart.
