Great Pyrenees
Are you a dog-savvy human waiting for a giant Pyr? How about a 3-year-old, 120 lb. boy who needs an understanding new family? I’m housetrained, can be left alone for several hours, will chill in my open crate, and can “sit”, “stay”, “come” and get “down” on command. Car rides are awesome, kids are fun, and other dogs seem OK although I’ve never shared my house or family with another pet. Right now, I’m living with my mom and her new baby, which I’ll confess is not awesome. Human babies take a lot of attention away from fur babies and like so many Pyrs, I love human attention. I truly adore being adored even though it can take a whole day or so for me to warm up to new people or places. On the other side of that coin, I can’t get far enough away from thunder, fireworks, or other loud noises. You’ll find me panting, drooling, and desperately searching for a hiding place. Also, I’m not a fan of the “e collar” my mom puts on me now and then to “brush up on my barking and behavior” as she calls it. I much prefer a dog-smart, patient alpha human with a loving family who will snuggle with me endlessly while I gain more confidence and adjust to my new home.

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.
