Hellos, I am Merle. My Pyr-friend is June. We are a bonded pair which means that we will be happiest staying together. Separating a bonded pair will be quite distressing to us, and we do not want this to happen.

So, what’s better than owning one Pyr? Yep, you know where this is heading. Owning two Great Pyrenees is the answer, and we are the perfect, majestic pair.

We lived with sheep and were dedicated guardians in our previous life, but the busy highway was always a concern.

We have been through complete evaluations with GPRA’s trainer. He said that we are “fantastic dogs .” We sat for treats, let the trainer touch us all over, and did excellent walking on the leash. (June tried to show me up a bit, but I also upped my game.) After all, we are people pleasers, too! Since we were raised with lots of children, ages three to 15, we are great with the younger humans.

With time, patience, further training, and consistency, we will become devoted, affectionate, and well-mannered family dogs. To keep us safe and allow us to have regular exercise, we will require a secure fenced-in yard.

Your fabulous Pyr-duo, Merle (and June)

Hi. I am Boo Boo Bear, and who might you be?

My loving mom rescued me when I was six months old. Sadly, now she is very sick and can no longer care for me. As you can imagine, our goodbye was sorrowful. She did a very loving thing because she knows that I am in good hands with GPRA.

Everyone says that I am one handsome boy, have a gorgeous coat, and am an absolute sweetheart. Well, thank you! Just know that I am also a loyal guardian and protector when needed. I can also detect seizures. Aren’t dogs the absolute best? We help our humans in so many ways.

A few other things to share are that I am house-trained and know commands such as sit and come. I’m great with other dogs, and my friend was an Aussie. However, I have no experience with cats.

I’m fearless with most things, except you may find me under a table during a thunderstorm. Do you think you can help me find a quiet hideaway from the loud noises?

Last and most importantly, my previous mom said I am very loving. Yes, I am because she loved me!

Pyrly deserving of a new loving home. Boo Boo Bear

Hi, I am Storm!
I’m currently with a wonderful foster mom, and she has lots of great things to share with you about me.

“Storm is a sweet and chill girl.” (Yep, give me a dog bed, and I will enjoy lounging around during the day.)
“Storm is on the lower energy side. She enjoys morning and afternoon walks. Since she is carrying a little extra weight and loves walks, we are working on fitness.” (Dropping a couple of pounds will make me a healthier girl. Are you ready to have a walking buddy?)
“Storm will do well in a quieter home that does not have children or other pets. Storm is very content with a set schedule.”
“On walks, Storm is social with other dogs and people, slow and cautious but warms up quickly when introduced.” (I try to be a well-mannered girl.)
“Storm is a lovely dog. She is not constantly seeking attention but still wants to be with her humans.” (Yes, I love my humans.)
“Storm has good manners and will paw at the door to go outside.”

Although my name portrays something different, a quiet, peaceful, and calm life makes me a happy girl.  Pyrly yours, Storm.

Hellos! I am the one and only Duffy. My family had to surrender their loving, easy-going, and super laid-back family dog, which is sad. However, I am hopeful as GPRA promises that there is another family out there just for me.

My previous family told GPRA I am a big baby. (Yep, I am a loveable guy!) I am also great with other dogs, cats, and strangers. Since I was shot in my front leg when I was only two-years-old, I hope my fur-ever family will understand that loud noises can scare me a bit. This just means that you may find me hiding in a closet during fireworks and stormy nights. Loud noises remind me of the day I was shot, so your understanding and kindness will ease my worries. Better yet, if you join me in the closet or a safe hiding space, I will be just fine.

One of my favorite things to do is to go for family car rides. Do you think we can stop for a Pyr-yummy Puppuccino? Well, maybe not, because I may need to shed a couple pounds!

Pyrly grateful for a second chance … Duffy

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!
