Bruno Barnes here, with my alluring baby blues! (My foster mom has affectionately nicknamed me Blue.) Here is a list of several reasons why you should make me your cuddle Pyr! 

“Bruno Barnes LOVES his humans and wants nothing more than to be with them 24/7. ” 

“Bruno is very smart, alert, loyal, and gentle. Bruno will laze around, but when his human moves, he moves. He will thrive with an attentive owner who loves him just as much as he loves them!” (If I were to howl about my favorite things, my humans would be at the top of the list!)

“Bruno needs a second to warm up to guests but accepts them if you direct him and tell him they are your friend. He reacts well to other animals inside the home and is good with other dogs off-leash.” (Before becoming besties, I will give you the sniff test! Don’t worry though, I’ve never met a human friend who failed it!)

“Bruno knows basic commands but needs some cues. However, he is very smart and trainable. Bruno is housetrained and has never asked to go out other than getting antsy.” (I look forward to improving my Pyr manners with you! Maybe you can encourage me with some treats?)

If you leave the door to your heart open, I will walk right on in and stay!

Your blue-eyed Pyr boy, 
Bruno Barnes 💙💙

Bailey Blueberry (BB) is here to wish all of you a Happy 2022! As for what I want in our New Year, well, you already know. I want a forever home where I am part of the family. As a younger Pyr, I will benefit from dedicated time and consistent training from my humans because no one has helped me learn how to be my best Pyr self. Therefore, I am in learning mode. I will benefit from exposure to new experiences and humans who will build my trust. GPRA is already helping me, and I am learning a lot in my foster home. So far, this is what GPRA knows about me.
“Bailey Blueberry is a cuddler and love bug. During her cuddle couch time, she loves being in between her humans and will ensure she touches both while falling asleep and then snoring.”
“She is a protector and very smart. She is learning what things she should bark at and which are of no concern. However, her humans need to continue helping her with positive reinforcement and encouraging comments to guide her learning.”
“Bailey Blueberry loves her tennis ball and will toss it in the air and then pounce on it. She is very amusing!”
“BB’s work in progress areas are walking on a leash, cats, and learning how to act properly around other dogs. Her young age and lack of training and exposure are probably the reasons. But, again, dedicated time and consistent training will make a world of difference for Bailey Blueberry. She is smart and will learn quickly.”
Yep, I have some learning to do and am eager to get started with my forever humans.
Your cuddle Pyr, Bailey Blueberry

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

Hi. I am Boo Boo Bear, and who might you be? I am still longing for another chance. You see, 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. However, 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.’ My friend was an Aussie when I was with my Mom. However, I did not get along too well with a smaller dog, probably due to not having the time and space to decompress when I went to a new home. (Please understand that it can be stressful for dogs like me to settle into new homes. However, we are immensely grateful for the opportunity to join a family, and time, patience, and understanding are essential in helping rescue dogs like me.) Also, to be honest, 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! (Will you open your heart and home to me?)
Pyrly deserving, Boo Boo Bear

Happy New Year, everyone! I am Puma. Now with the best Rescue family (GPRA) and in a loving foster home, I trust these good humans to find my happily ever after.
Here is what GPRA knows about me.
“Puma is great with kids and people. She is friendly, active, playful, and an easy-going family dog.
“A fenced-in yard and lots of walks will be great for Puma as she is a healthy, fit and active young dog.”
“Puma’s best friend was an outside cat that she often curled up beside for naps.” (Yes, I miss my cat friend.)
As GPRA learns more about me, I will update you.
Time to ring in the New Year together!
Your Pyrly beautiful girl, Puma

Double the fluff; double the love; double the magnificence!
Hellos to everyone. We are Nike (gray ears) and Adidas (all white). Are you looking for endless hugs from two big whites?
GPRA has lots of great things to tell you about us.
“Both boys are super sweet and give kisses and lots of Pyr paws. They are people-oriented and very playful!”
“Adidas and Nike are entertaining on walks because they run, play, drop, and roll together. Their bond is magical and undeniable, and they greatly complement each other. Adidas can be a little less active, while Nike likes to be more active.”
“Both Pyrs have loveable personalities and are curious and great with kids and other dogs.”
“Their leash manners are improving, and the boys know the commands,  “sit” and “come.” They will chase a cat, so be careful and aware.”
“Adidas and Nike are big-hearted Pyrs and full of joy. They love life and live it to its fullest!
“The boys will bury their favorite stuffed toys probably to hide them from each other.”
“Nike can be a bit more reserved and independent. He howls and whines and has a hoarse-sounding bark to call for people to come to hang with him. But, without a doubt, he is as sweet as can be! Both dogs will thrive with kind-hearted owners.”
We promise that adopting us will be the greatest gift you receive this year!
Pyrly yours, Nike and Adidas
GPRA Update: Nike is recovering from emergency surgery. He swallowed what was thought to have been fabric/string material that flipped his stomach. (This can be life-threatening to dogs.) Nike will fully recover but needs low activity for a few weeks. GPRA advises owners to pick up toys when dogs are done playing to limit the risks of dogs accidentally swallowing pieces of their toys or even socks.

Good day to you! I am Festus. You probably remember reading about a sweetheart PYR hit by a car, suffering a severe break in the upper third of his femur. I am that boy! Would you believe that I even had to stay in a Georgia shelter before being released to GPRA? Upon being released to this incredible Rescue, I was rushed to an all-star orthopedic doctor for a three-hour surgery to repair my leg!
My Pyr-wonderful foster mom helped me through an eight-week recovery. My sutures were removed, and I resumed normal activities in early August. I couldn’t wait… Know what else I cannot wait for…? Yep, my very own loving family!
Here is what my foster mom wants you to know about me.
“Festus is a cuddle bug that loves his ears and shoulders massaged. Festus will lay his head in your lap for hugs and pets. He then lays down and rolls over for belly rubs. If I let him, he will try to crawl up into my lap.” (I cannot get enough love from my humans!)
“Festus has decided that his favorite thing is a frozen Kong stuffed with 3/4 kibble and 1/4 liverwurst or peanut butter!” (Am I just the luckiest foster Pyr ever? What Pyr would not love this delicious treat?!)
“Festus was on restricted activity due to his leg surgery. I am a good walker and very active now that I resumed normal activities.” ( I can now play and run and take lots of walks!)
“Festus is house-trained. He will pace in front of the door to go outside. If I do not immediately respond, he barks at me.” (I do my best to be a good boy in the house, and I have learned how to let my foster mom know that it’s time to go outside!)
“While outside with Festus one night, he completely ignored the three deer that were hanging in the yard. In fact, he just stared at them! However, when back inside, he barked three times and then went into the master bedroom and went to sleep.” (Yep, I thought those deer were harmless. However, I let them know that I knew they were there!)
“If I do not immediately hook Festus’ collar while getting him into the backseat of the car, he will crawl into the front passenger seat to be my co-pilot. My neighbor thinks it is hilarious to see him sitting in the front seat.” (Us Pyrs want to be front and center in our humans’ life. However, it is much safer for me to be secured in the back seat.)
While I cannot wait to be adopted, I am very thankful to GPRA and my foster mom for all they have done for me.
Pyrly grateful, Festus
