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

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

Hellos, everyone. Are you ready to fall in love with an incredibly gentle and easy-going boy who loves people? If yes, look no further because I am your boy! Like my best friend, Duke, who is also available for adoption, I lived a good life with another family. Still, I was surrendered due to my owner’s health issues. My previous owner really loved me, and I hope my future family does as well. Since Duke is a bit braggadocious, I hope you do not mind that I am as well. My owner had lots of great things to say about me, too!
“Howie loves children.” (Yes, I am easy-going, and kids are lots of fun!)
“Howie is good with other dogs.” (My best friend, Duke, is also up for adoption, so please consider adopting him, too. If you are looking for two dogs, we are your boys!)
“Howie knows commands such as sit, stay, come, off and down.” (Yes, I know the commands. Like most Pyrs, I might be a bit lazy remembering.)
“Howie loves car rides.” (This is one of my favorite things. If you know of drive-up windows that offer dog treats to their customers, then let’s be sure to make several stops.)
You see, there are lots of great things to love about me.
Oh, one more thing, you just need to know to never crate me because it is my biggest fear. Please just let me hang out in the house when you leave, and I promise to be a good boy. Your Pyr-fect companion, Howie

I came into GPRA with a friend where we both lived outside together on a farm our whole life but after 6 weeks my foster mom has realized we aren’t bonded.  Once I got comfortable at our new home, I decided I didn’t like to share my inside space with him. I do great with him outside, but mom says I probably need to be the only dog. I just can’t help it. I like all the love and attention, and I will be your best loyal companion keeping you safe. That is until a thunderstorm rolls along and you need to protect me. As long as you’re with me during storms, I am great.  I also get along with cats and children and love, love, love my humans. I love those things called dog beds, too, and I am a pro at using a dog door.  I haven’t had any accidents in the house, and I don’t care if my humans take food, my food bowl, or my treats away from me. Since I am overall the most pyrfect Pyr who loves to snuggle with you and go to sleep with my head tucked in close, please consider me your personal snuggle dog if you think I fit your life.

I have no idea why a six-year-old, 100 lb. Pyr boy is named after a small bird that quacks and swims. Forget the pond, I love being outside, running, and playing. Grown people, kids, cats, and other dogs are all A+ in my book because I’m super social. You can take me on long walks or leave me home alone, my house manners are good. Since honesty is the best policy, especially when you’re choosing a life fur partner, I’m timid around men when we first meet. And more specifically, I cannot be around aggressive, screaming men. They terrify me. I wasn’t the one hurt, but that behavior brings back sad memories. Hopefully, if you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below, we’ll start making fun and loving memories really soon.

Here I am, both sides of the Pyrenees coin, so to speak. I’m a 6-year-old, 65 lb. energetic girl who, according to one of my previous owners, is allergic to beef. For what it’s worth, I’m much more “allergic” to not having a family. Let’s talk about why I could be your Pyr…I’m house and crate trained, affectionate, loving, like cats, and good with kids. My vocabulary includes basic commands, which means I’m trainable. This is important because I’m counting on my new family to socialize me, so I’m less reactive to other dogs or strangers on our walks. I’m just protecting my human but apparently there is a right and less right way to do that. Having a place to exercise away all my energy might help. Actually, exercise is supposedly good for people, too so if you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below, we can get moving together!
