Lola Bloom, here! My last name makes me think of flowers, and my favorite one is a daisy. I’m fresh as a daisy too because I’m petal-soft and sparkling clean. I tend to stay that way because I’m the indoor-sy type. Funny enough, I actually love walking on the leash, but I’m still learning about human things like cars. I love learning because just like a daisy can grow almost anywhere, I’m adaptable! Daisies aren’t just hardy; they symbolize loyalty and patience too. I love my other dog companions, and I even welcomed a kitten into my foster home. Speaking of my home, I can be left alone because I’m calm and love to sleep on the couch. I’m a sweet, shy girl, and I can’t wait to go home with you and blossom!

Hi, I’m Annabelle, and I’m so pleased to meet you! I think I was named after the butterfly whose scientific name is vanessa annabella because we are both big and beautiful! The Annabella butterfly has only a few spots of white, but I’m white and fluffy all over. Annabella butterflies also like to sunbathe, and I like to walk around in the sun too. My GPRA walkers say I’m excellent on the leash! Walking is easy, but Annabella butterflies trek to the Rocky Mountains twice a year. I’ve made a few journeys in my life, and I’m still getting used to the car! After a pleasant walk around the flowers, I’m ready for all the pets and cuddles you can give me. I’ve heard butterflies flap their wings five times per second, and if you want to pet me five times per second, I’d be one happy pyr! Another thing that makes me happy is other dogs. Butterflies can fly as fast as 30 mph and that’s how fast I run to my fellow doggy friends! I love them! I love humans too, but I take a bit to warm up. Once I do, though, I’m as sweet as the flower nectar those Annabella butterflies love to eat! If you’re looking for a gentle and loving pyr, then I’m your girl!

Aloha! Charmingly named after a lively Disney character, my name is Lilo. Did you know that Lilo means “generous one?” Yes, I have a generous Pyr-heart!
I am wishing for an exceptional and loving home and owner. You see, I am almost completely deaf. While I still have a little hearing, it is fading. But, do not worry because I understand many things my humans communicate to me. Here is what GPRA knows about me.
“Lilo will do best in a home where she can bond with her humans. She will need an owner or family with kids that are home all/most of the time. Lilo struggles with separation anxiety, and we are helping her feel more secure.” (Yes, life has been hard on me. I am thankful to have understanding and kind humans who support me. In return, I will be your constant and faithful companion.)
“Lilo needs another dog for companionship. She loves to run and is very athletic and will need a yard, but she likes sleeping a lot, too.” (What can I say, I like quiet time, too, which is prime time for cuddles.)
Your Pyrly loving girl, Lilo

Hellos. I am Nellie. Although timid, GPRA is helping me return to Great Pyrenees status. Unfortunately, since I am pretty scared of men, GPRA thinks I was abused or hurt at some point in my past life. Yes, I know it’s sad, but I’m doing my best to start the next chapter. Lucky for me, GPRA’s trainer is working with me and building my confidence and trust. Those yummy treats and lots of patience will help me open my Pyr heart again.
Here are a few things that GPRA’s volunteers know about me.
“Nellie is a sweet and curly angel. Her confidence grows each day!”
“Nellie is a little shy at first but warms up when she gets to know you. She is a curly-haired beauty and super sweet!”
“She is making great strides and even let me clean out her ears.”
“Nellie had the best time romping around the play yard with Festus. Both dogs enjoyed running back and forth together along the fence. (Yep, having a play buddy is fantastic and gives me a sense of security, too!)
So, that’s a bit of me. As my Pyr-confidence and happiness increase, I will keep you updated on my progress.
Pyrly yours, Nellie

Hi! I am the friendly and loving Polar Blizzard! Even though my name might sound a little foreboding, know that this Polar Blizzard will melt hearts!
Lucky for me, my Pyr-tastic foster parents are eager to tell you all about me. Here goes…
“Polar Blizzard loves his humans. He is a confident boy and checks on his humans throughout the day to see what we are doing. He will bond quickly with trusting humans. During the day and sometimes in the evening, Polar finds a quiet place in a closet area to rest and sleep.” (Yep, I love being in close proximity with my humans! Did you know that Pyrs are gregarious? I will also enjoy having another Pyr-friend and/or fur-sibling home with me for companionship, too.)
“Polar Blizzard is great with visitors. When neighbors visit, he leans up against them for more petting.” (I love receiving affection. The more attention, the merrier I am!)
“Polar Blizzard takes two long walks each day and some shorter walks. He is good on a leash and does not pull or show much interest in other dogs.” (Walks are the best, and I love spending lots of quality time with my humans! I hope to enjoy lots of daily walks in the future, too!)
Oh, one more thing, GPRA recommends that my future home not have cats or smaller dogs.
Pyr-ready for adoption and my very own loving family, Polar Blizzard

Hi! I’m Lone Ranger, but I don’t want to be alone anymore! I want a family who will give me lots of love. Like any good ranger, I’m on the lookout for the pyr-fect family for me. Luckily, I’ll be easy to match because I’m great with kids and people. Plus, I’m house-trained which makes me an extra good boy! Us rangers tend to be well-acquainted with fuzzy creatures, and I’m no exception. I LOVE other dogs. Playing and socializing with other dogs is the best! This Lone Ranger is ready to hang up his hat of solitude. It would be AMAZING to have another doggy pal in my home to be my fur-ever friend! My new doggy brother or sister and I can play in the backyard. I do need a 6-foot fence to stay safe because I can get over a shorter one like most of my pyr brethren. I’m curious about kitty-cats too, so we probably would get along well. When we go out on a nature walk, I can use my ranger skills to show you the sights. And, you’ll never have to worry about me because I’m good on a leash and don’t pull. After taking in the fresh air, we can hop in the car and head back to our home on the range. I’m an excellent car rider and enjoy sticking my head out the window to feel the autumn breeze in my fur. They say home is where you hang your hat, or your leash in the case of us dogs. Take me home, and we’ll snuggle together as it gets colder outside.

Hello, human pals! I am the marvelous Murphy, and I am here to tell you all about me [with the help of those who know me]!
“Murphy has a great personality. He is loving and very playful. He is also fantastic with young kids. (Aww, thank you. Yes, I love the smaller humans very much!)
“Murphy loves to be outside (when it’s not too hot or too cold), has always slept inside, sometimes on his bed, often on the hardwood floors. He is very friendly and sweet, loves to meet new people, and is good with visiting dogs.”
“Murphy is typical Pyr when it comes to strangers approaching the house. He will bark and be protective.” (Pyrs are guardians. You can count on me to sound the alarm when I have concerns.)
“Murphy would love to be a lap dog!” (If you need a couch buddy, I am your boy!)
“Murphy will put his head in your lap, nudge your  arm and stare at you when he wants to go outside.”
“Murphy’s best playmate was a 13-pound terrier/dachshund mix. Murphy was very gentle and sweet with her, but he did, at times, play too roughly with our female senior pyr mix. Murphy ignored the cat.  (I love fur-playmates!)
“Murphy does best with specific dog food, and GPRA will tell you which dog food keeps me healthy. However, Murphy cannot have anything with chicken in it.”
“Murphy has never tried to dig under or climb our six-foot, four-board fence with wire but can squeeze through an opening in our gate.” (Although I love to sneak out and run around, be sure to secure the gate and outdoor fences to keep me safe. With additional obedience training, I will do better on my recall, too.)
Just one more thing, if my new family has chickens, I will need help learning that they are off-limits.
GPRA says that a very loving family, a backyard and fur-siblings are out there just for me, and I cannot wait!
Your Pyr-marvelous boy,
❤️❤️ Murphy

Hello, I am the beautiful and magnificent Mollie Marigold. Although I have only been in Rescue for a short time, GPRA’s Pyr trainer is already using me for demonstrations. I was pretty proud of that moment! Walking beautifully on a leash is my MO (yes, that’s Pyr for modus operandi). So, I hope you are ready for lots of walks and adventures because being outside is one of my favorite things.

GPRA is also giving me the full vet review, which is new because no one ever took me to a vet. GPRA’s vet says that every dog needs proper vet care for optimal health. I guess you can say I am getting a complete check-up on all fronts. GPRA also thinks that I might be a great service dog.

If you choose me, my Mollie sweetness will be all yours, and there is lots of it to share with my new family.
Your Pyr-sational girl, Mollie Marigold

Hellos, I am the sweet Sadie Mae. Before I share my story, I want to thank GPRA for
helping me. Before GPRA came to my rescue, there were no remaining options for me.

It all started when my owner passed last year. Then, another caring family member
offered to take me in. However, I was living in a hotel and could no longer stay there. My family’s only request for GPRA was to find someone who will love me.

So, this is where I need you. Other things to share are that I am an easy keeper and a wonderful family dog. I’m also friendly with other dogs and cats. Children are my absolute favorite. Car rides are the best because I am with my humans. Oh, I almost forgot, I am
easy to walk on a leash. (All good stuff, right?)

I am hopeful that somewhere out there, someone will open their home and heart to me.

Pyr-worthy of many more happy days, Sadie Mae
