Hey, all. I am Prism and a very thankful boy to have been rescued by GPRA from a Shelter. Here is what GPRA’s walking volunteers say about me.
“Prism is a very good boy. Although a little shy, he is a dear love. He passed GPRA’s evaluation with flying colors.”
“Prism loves walking the trails and is a delightful and wonderful boy.”
“Prism is excellent on the leash until he sees a deer. Then, it is playtime.” (Yep, this is my work in progress. Be ready to teach me how to maintain my good leash manners even when I see a deer.)
“Prism has lots of extra pep in his step. It was fun to watch him run a bit in the large play yard.” (I’m a fun boy that just wants to run and play.)
“Prism is more interested in being petted and loved on than playing today. I am so happy to report that Prism is getting more comfortable, and his confidence increases each day.” (Yep, thanks to GPRA’s volunteers, my trusting and confident self is starting to shine.)
“Prism is the sweetest boy. We got to be friends very quickly.” (Thank y’all so much for helping to build my trust. GPRA’s volunteers are Pyr-awesome!)
Your Pyrly happy and grateful boy, Prism

Hellos to all! I am the Amazing Macy! I was heartbroken when my owners moved overseas, and I could not join them. However, I trust GPRA and my wonderful foster family to help me find a loving and lasting fur-ever home! So, here is a bit about me.
“Macy is smart, friendly, loving, shy, affectionate, and cuddly!  She loves having her head, neck, and ears massaged and belly rubs.  Macy knows several commands, such as ‘sit,’ ‘down,’ ‘place,’ and ‘back-up.’ (Yep, my loving owners taught me a lot, and I will continue to learn from my future family, too!)
“Macy will be happiest with another dog in the house. She loves her fur-siblings, and they are best buddies. (Without fur-siblings, I will get too lonely.)
“Macy is very athletic and loves to be outside! She will thrive with dedicated suburb owners who will provide her with many walks or a life in the country. (Yep, a country dog life is fantastic, but I can also be a city girl with sufficient exercise and attention.)
“Macy is great with our two teens and will sit on the couch and watch TV  with them. Then, one day, I found her in bed with my daughter, who was studying AP Psychology. Apparently, Macy likes someone who will read to her.” (I am the Pyr-fect cuddle reading/studying buddy!)
Although it may take me a little time to trust, I am very loving, affectionate, and Pyr-ready for a life filled with lots of fun and love with my human and fur-sibling family.

Your Pyrly incredible girl, Macy

Hi, I am Socks. Sadly, I was abandoned and left behind due to a very distressing home circumstance. I will spare you the details.

Thankfully, a caring neighbor knew what was happening and stepped in to help rescue me. I still miss my human children, but GPRA tells me that there are lots of families out there looking for a friendly, loving, big, fluffy boy like me. It feels good to be hopeful again.

Although my guardian neighbor told GPRA that I am a charming and playful boy, my home life was quite turbulent. It will take time to decompress and trust. A loving and patient owner who will invest time in helping me feel safe and less anxious will get me on the right path. I will also benefit from dedicated time and training to learn good manners. It will be helpful to tether me on car rides until I can chill out more, but I promise to work hard to make you proud.

As GPRA learns more about me, I will update you.
Thank you for saving me and giving me hope for a fresh start, GPRA!

Pyr-eager for my happily-ever-after, Socks

PS You will understand why my name is Socks when you meet me!

Happy Day, everyone! If you are a Star Wars fan, you will fall in love with big, irresistible me because my name is Chewbacca! Cool name, right?

I have a wonderful family to thank for saving me from a horrible place. Since they already had four dogs, they knew GPRA was my best chance at a good life.

At first, everyone thought that I was part Golden Retriever because my coat was reddish-orange. Nope, I’m full Pyr! My beautiful coat had absorbed lots of Georgia clay, so GPRA put me through the magical grooming transformation, which included not one but three baths. Gosh, it felt so good to get all that dirt out of my coat that I fell sound asleep after my Spa Day! Now, I don’t even recognize myself. I am quite the stunning boy if I say so myself. (Yes, that’s my Pyr confidence and pride talking.)

Everyone says I am a super sweet and chill boy, so come meet me soon!

May the Pyr force be with you, Chewbacca

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.
