Hellos. Are you ready to play with the lovable and playful Duke?  I have lived a good life with another family but was surrendered due to my owner’s health issues. My previous owner adored me, and I hope my future family does as well. Not to be overly braggadocious, but here is what my previous owner says about me:
“Duke is great with kids of all ages.” (Yes, kids are the best!)
“Duke is good with other dogs.” (My best friend, Howie, is also up for adoption, so please consider adopting him, too.)
“Duke knows commands such as sit, stay, come, off and down.” (This is good stuff, right? I do my best to remember these commands and will only get better with consistency in reminding me.”
“Duke is gentle.” (Yes, I love all humans!)
“Duke is a leader.” (When I am with Howie, I am the one that gets us going.”)
Like many Pyrs, the one thing that makes me a bit nervous is fireworks. As long as I am with my humans, I’m ok. Just know that I may need your reassurance on fireworks nights.
So, that’s a bit about me. I cannot wait to learn all about you.
Your man, Duke

Hello, everyone! I am Cisco.  Sadly, I lost my primary caretaker, and with this unexpected life change, my previous family can no longer keep me. They are all very heartbroken.
Now, I am looking for a new family who will become my forever.  There are lots of great things you need to know about me.  First, you can see in my photos how much I love humans. Here are few other things that my previous family shared with GPRA.
“Cisco is a friendly, family dog.” (Yes, I love my family, especially the children.)
“Cisco is active and playful. He spent most of his life outside.” (Yes, I love the outdoors. However, if the humans are inside, I think I would like to spend more time there as well.)
“Cisco lived with another dog and six cats.” (I will miss my other fur-family members and look forward to having new ones.)
So, what do you think? Are you ready to adopt me? Looking forward to happier days, again… Cisco

Max here to let y’all know that I am a survivor and have kept my Pyr smile, playfulness, and friendliness despite living through tough and hungry days. Long story short, I was pulled with other dogs from a neglect situation by Animal Control, and GPRA came to my rescue.  With time, I am hopeful that my tendencies to guard my bowl will fade away as I begin to trust that I will get more than enough food. However, I love other dogs and cats as we became good friends during our difficult days. After my hind leg was run over, it is a bit stiff, which only means that I may need a little help getting in and out of the vehicle, but so do most Pyrs.  If you are my forever, I will follow you all over the place, join you on car rides, and let you know every day how grateful I am to be in your loving, kind, and trusting care.

Looking forward to endless hugs, a cozy bed, and happier days… Max

Since my name matches a country rock star, let’s pretend I can sing and play guitar. I don’t know anything about my past except that I came from Alabama so maybe I do have some country in me! GPRA’s vet says I’m five years old, 84 lbs., and walk well on a leash. Humans say I’m super chill with other dogs, even one who tried to eat me and those sometimes quite annoying puppies. This story is so short, I guess I can add I rode well in the car for two of the three hours. After that, I got a little vocal letting my GPRA driver know it was my turn at the wheel. I tried to move up front and he just blocked me. Otherwise, Mr. K was a very nice guy, especially because he brought me you. Or hopefully. The ball’s in your court now—hey, wonder if I like tennis balls? Anyway, please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below so we can at least meet. It’s the only way to know if I’m the soul dog you’ve been waiting for all this time.

No getting around it, this 5-year-old, 106 lb. girl needs a new home. Why I’m moving is personal, but I promise I’ve been safe and cared for these last few months. I’m housetrained, good with dogs, kids, and leave my cat sibling alone. The first few minutes on my leash are wiggly and pully because it feels so good to be out and smelling new smells, but I settle down pretty quickly. I wish I had a lot more to share because I really want you to please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below so we can meet but this is all I know. How about we get to know each other?

Everyone knows THE Snoopy and as you can tell by my white ears, I’m not him. I’m a five-year-old,120 lb. boy with the same name and no tiny yellow bird on his shoulder. However, I am good with cats, dogs, kids, grown-up people and going potty outside. If it’s storming, I need to be inside with you, though. Oh, and I do not like garden hoses or baths because water scares me as much as thunderstorms.  I do, however, enjoy a good, long, run through the neighborhood. Hey, maybe that other Snoopy and I have something in common after all since we both do way cool tricks: he flies a doghouse and I climb wooden fences. Of course, neither is very safe so I guess we should both stay on the ground.  Or maybe I can stay on your lap? Don’t let my size fool you, I’m definitely a lap dog all the way. If you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below I’ll prove it to you!

My name is plural but I’m only one dog! Just one, 5-year-old, 93 lb. sweet boy dog who is housetrained, good with people, cats and other dogs. I’m used to running free in my fenced backyard. I like meeting new people on my walks and admit to needing some leash training. I’ll also confess thunderstorms scare me and I’ll come looking for you wherever you are. I love it when people share their food with me, but I won’t share my food back. Oh, and I might, only might, run from a groomer if I get the chance, you know, depending on how the groomer handles me. Well, that’s really all I know about myself, it’s your turn now. Please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below and the GPRA people will tell you anything I forgot to mention. It’s hard to concentrate when it’s almost feeding time!

I don’t know what a senior living community is but apparently this 5-year-old, 100 lb. boy can’t move into one with my elderly parents. They’re upset about kissing me goodbye, but they have to go and I’m relieved we’ll both have safe new homes.  Hopefully mine will have a fence since I enjoy being outside but tend to wander without a barrier. If you’re looking for a super loving, calm, nothing-bothers-him dog who also likes humans of all ages and sizes, choose me. We can go on car rides together during which I’ll happily share my food with you, if you want it, since I’ve never shown any food aggression. Cats are kinda new to me and so far, a great source of exercise. They always outrun and out jump me, but the chase is still fun. Unless it’s storming. The only things I do during a storm are hide under a bed and whimper. Yes, I know lots of dogs feel that way but it’s still scary so maybe my new family will know how to help be feel less afraid. If you have some ideas, or just want to meet me, please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below.

Hi and Hello! Not sure how a 5-year-old, 79 lb. female got the name Evenstar but the very nice woman who found me knows I’m great with her three small dogs, I love being in the center of all five kids who live here, and I’m content to let the cats hide upstairs. She says I don’t have any food aggression but…I empty my bowl onto the floor. It looks like more food all spread out! Sometimes I can’t make up my mind about being inside or out but for some reason I love the unfinished basement. I also like exploring, which would be fine if I did it on the leash, but that’s not always the case, lol. In my defense, I did come back to my temporary home so that’s good, right? I’ll need some paw holding for a little while, I’m still getting used to routine dog things like brushing.
