Hey there! I’m Boo Boo! I’m a single, fluffy male Pyr looking for that special someone to be my furrrever hooman.
The kind folks at GPRA took me in because my mom had a terminal illness and had to say goodbye. The two of us were very happy together, and she loved me very much. I have been with GPRA for a while because I just haven’t found the right match. But as the saying goes– “good things come to those who wait.”
I am looking for someone to love me, and I will love them back. All of the ladies who walk me tell me I am “handsome,” “majestic,” “a love” and “so sweet.”  Okay, so maybe I’m a bit of a ladies-pup; a four-legged gigalo who gives a wicked-good Pyr-paw. That being said, I am a bit shy when I meet strangers, but once I know you I will lay my head on your lap for some good behind the ear scratches.
I’ll need someone who is familiar with Pyrs or large breeds and can be a consistent and strong leader because sometimes I get a little overzealous with my guarding. This is something we will need to work on together. But don’t worry, GPRA will have your back and their trainer will guide you on ways to encourage bonding.
Because swift movements and loud noises can startle me, I would prefer to go to a home without small children. I know they are pretty in the sky, but I don’t like fireworks, but as long as you are by my side, I know I’ll be okay.
Unlike most Pyrs, I will chase a ball and get my “goof” on with zoomies. So if you have a fenced yard, that would be great for me.
Are you that special person who can help me be the best Pyr I can be? I guarantee I’ll be a great companion once we get to know each other. Or who knows, maybe it will be love at first sight (or first Pyr-paw)!

Our main mission at GPRA is to find the right permanent home for Great Pyrenees in distress, whether they are strays or from an overpopulated kill or no-kill shelter. We don’t care how old they are or what their medical condition is because we will make sure they receive a comprehensive medical evaluation, spaying or neutering, and even behavioral training if necessary.
