Great Pyrenees

Hi ya’ll, I’m Andy, a 2-year-old, 125 lb. calm, cool, and relaxed used-to-be-stray now interviewing forever families. Hopefully it will be easy since I adore people, walk well on a leash, and ignore things other dogs usually chase such as squirrels, birds, and cats. I am a firm believer in 24/7 ear scratching and belly rubs, plus I like being brushed as long as you please stay away from my tail and hind legs. That’s very important! I’m also a little skittish about certain noises and I’ve been known to sing along with sirens. I’m learning to trust people around my food, not sure about other dogs, though. In fact, I heard a GPRA human say I seem interested, but from a distance. She says I don’t care for other dogs being too close to my face.  People though, completely different story! I love snuggling  so if you want to try a Pyr hug or two, or a few thousand, please email or click “Apply to Adopt” below. Oh, and I’m highly treat motivated so feel free to bring a bucket or two of snacks.

Donate to Great Pyrenees Rescue of Atlanta

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.
