Good day! How are you? I am the lovable and very handsome Samson Corbin. My previous family had a major life change and could no longer care for me. So, this is why I’m with GPRA. Here are a few things my previous owners shared with GPRA about irresistible me. I have a feeling it will convince you that I’m your next big gentle giant.

“Samson is a wonderful and loveable Great Pyrenees/St. Bernard cross.” (Yep, you get the best of both breeds in me!)

“Samson is looking for a family or individual who has a fenced-in-yard and will play fetch with him or take him for walks frequently.” (Now, this is the important stuff because I love being outside and taking lots of walks with my favorite humans.)

“Samson adopts other animals into his pack very quickly.” (Yep, I am great with other dogs and cats. Collecting other animals and watching over them makes me a happy boy!  Last but not least, I really love the smaller humans you call children, too!)

“Fireworks scare Samson. He will want to be with his humans.” (If you pet me and ease my worries during those loud noises, I will be just fine!)

“Samson has all the love in the world to give to his humans.” (Yes, this is what makes me an irresistible awesome boy!)

Just a loveable boy, Samson

Together, forever! This is our motto, and it has gotten us through some difficult days. GPRA asked us to share a bit about ourselves, so here goes. I am Quin (the girl with the darker ears), and my brother and sidekick is Togepi. His name is pronounced –  Toga-pea. Since humans have a little difficulty pronouncing it, I hope this helps. With all the changes in our lives, it’s very comforting hearing our names and receiving lots of love and affection.

As you can see from our picture, Togepi is bigger than me, but we snuggle like little dogs. We are desperately bonded and have been each other’s comfort space for many years. We love climbing all over our foster mom and jockeying for position to get the most ear scratches and belly rubs. We have excellent house manners, do not care about the food humans eat, and LOVE napping on furniture and beds, especially if there is a human with us. However, I’m sure you can convince us to love a comfy dog bed, too!

There are no kids in our foster home, but I am sure we will love them. As for cats, we think they want to play. However, they really do not want to engage with us. We will be great family members for a calm household with humans who have plenty of time to reassure and pet us… and keep petting us.

As easy as we are to live with, we will need a tall, strong fence that we cannot go over, go under or push over. (Yes, Pyrs can climb!) Things were not very good in our previous life, so we can get easily frightened, which is another reason we need a tall fence. Thunder and lightning are two of our least favorite things. If you help us find a closet or little hiding spot in your home and comfort us, we will be fine. We worry when our foster mom leaves us, but this is understandable considering we are still learning how to trust our surroundings.

Pyrly hopeful that our very own loving humans are somewhere out there…Quin and Togepi

Yes, my name is Peach Georgia, but you can call me Peach. I am another gentle giant GPRA alum that is perfect for your loving home.
I am so grateful to be with a caring foster mom who is introducing me to all the humans and canines of her neighborhood. Just look at all the awesome things she said about me to GPRA.
“Peach is an absolute sweetheart and is adjusting really well and has a very sparkly personality.” (Thank you. My sparkly personality lets you know how happy I am to be with you.)
“Peach is a dream! She is polite, a good listener, smart, and has excellent house manners. (Thank you. I really try to be a good girl!)
“Peach is a great family dog. She will bark at noises and sounds when outside, but she will quiet down for you, too.” (I am letting you know that I am keeping a watchful eye on things.)
“Peach prefers to be inside with her people and has been a great work from the home companion.” (My foster mom has been a great companion for me, too!)
“Peach will be a good option for a non-Pyr experienced owner.” (I am a lovely girl!)
“Peach LOVES to goof in the yard, follows me up and down the stairs all day, and LOVES to go for 30-40 minute walks twice each day. She has good leash manners. Peach is an active and fun-loving girl that needs some exercise to obtain a healthy weight.” (If you are looking for a walking buddy to get and stay healthy, I am your girl! PS I need to drop a couple pounds.)
Looking forward to being your Peach of a girl… -Peach

Millie Joy here, and I really love my name, do you? I am back with Rescue because I have some learning to do but so does everyone, right? You see, I am still a little possessive of my food bowl and territorial with my house.

Many Great Pyrenees have similar learning hurdles, and there are countless success stories out there. Just ask GPRA. I do my best to protect the things that I treasure, but I need to be less enthusiastic about this job. In the beginning, my forever home should not have other cats or dogs. What else can I share…well, a fenced-in backyard is also recommended for exercise until I learn better leash manners.

Oh, I almost forgot to share with you that I am very affectionate, loving, and gentle with children and really miss daily hugs and treats and being part of a family. Yes, I have some learning to do, and consistency and patience will help me. GPRA tells me that my family is out there.

Still waiting for my forever and another chance at a happily ever after…Mille Joy

I heard some humans say I used to live with someone who had “too many dogs.” It’s OK though, past is past and now this four-year-old, 80 lb. girl is on her way to you. Or maybe a friend or family member of yours if that’s my best forever home. GPRA and I would really appreciate your telling safe and patient dog people all about my extremely sweet nature and how dog friendly I am. Living in a shelter kinda stressed me out so I’ll probably know more about my true self once I get a GPRA foster.

I would love to live with you inside again. More info coming soon…

This is my story: people say I’m very sweet, very skittish, and very underweight. I’m 65 lbs., which is too thin for a four-year-old girl. The end. I wish I could tell you more because I really want to live with people and the Pyr network says humans like reading about us. Oh, I had puppies recently. They all have homes now, so I guess it’s my turn. Will you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below?

Any chance your favorite cookies are Oreos and you want a Pyr that looks like the reverse of your favorite cookie?  If so, this 4-year-old, 75 lb. boy is the GPRA rescue you’ve been waiting for! I’m good with kids, dogs, cats, and leash walking. Get this, I even have this special harness to run next to you safely while you ride your bike. We can stay healthy together! And as if that’s not cool enough, I stand at the door and “talk” when I need to go outside, rarely bark, and will head straight to my people for comfort when I hear gunshots or fireworks. Want to meet for some milk(bones) and cookies? I know, bad joke but I couldn’t resist.

I’m thinking about a name change, something more original to go with my very individual personality. At 4-years-old and 90 lbs., I need a strong human leader to bring out my gentle Pyr qualities. We all go through stages and after recent events, I’m ready for the next stage: being my best self every day. Who is this best self you ask?  Well, he’s house trained, loves adults, gets along with his canine sister, and perfectly trustworthy home alone. This “current Bear self” is sometimes unsure, or maybe afraid of, other dogs and is always fearful of storms. Like all animals, I instinctively protect myself from things that scare me. I’d like to live with at least one alpha human and probably older kids, if any. Are you looking for a sweet dog and the chance to reinforce good traits?

Hi! We’re Sadie and Lenny, a bonded pair of litter-mates! We’re 4 years old. Lenny (with the white head) weighs 125 lbs. and me, Sadie, 115 lbs. We have to be rehomed because our owner started a new job that requires traveling. We think we might be a Pyrenees/Husky mix. Let’s go ahead and talk about all the wonderful reasons why we deserve a new loving home and family to be the best of friends with! We both are sweet and loving! Since Sadie is braver, she’ll do ALL the talking!
My brother Lenny, is a little shier, but also fun and playful. I love my food and I’m very food-driven, Lenny on the other hand is very relaxed about food. We’re pretty athletic, especially me, and I’d love to go jogging with you! If you feel like taking it easy, we would still love to go on a walk, since we’re both leash-trained. Want to know a funny thing about me? People say I’m a talker sometimes, like my possible Husky relatives, and I love to cuddle. We both like all furry friends and want to play with them! I’m the brave one and Lenny is a little shy at first, but we both are curious and excited about meeting new people, dogs, even big dogs, kids and never show any aggression. I try to play with small dogs even though they’re not interested, but it doesn’t hurt to try?! We might even like cats, we don’t know, just never been around one. We know basic commands, so it’ll help whenever you want to teach us anything new. Another fun fact is that we don’t even bark at FedEx or UPS delivery people! We’re very proud to say my sister
and I are housebroken, have NO accidents, and trained for a doggy door. We respect fences, even with deer right outside the fence, no jumping, no digging. We can be left home alone and we’re
not even scared of thunderstorms. We don’t even notice them! If my brother and I sound like your possible new best friends, please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt”.
Don’t forget! Our adoption fees are HALF OFF!
