Hello, there! I’m Gillie Girl, and I’m so glad to meet you! Girl is a part of my name because I’m still a little girl pup. The great wide world is a new and exciting place, and I have the energy to match it! A backyard with a six-foot fence for me to run and play in would be fantastic. I can jump a shorter fence, especially if I see a deer. No cats or chickens either, please! They are way too much fun to chase, and I want to be a good pyr girl. Other dogs, though, are awesome to be around. I would really like to have a doggy sibling or friend to hang out with. At my foster home, my foster doggy brother and I are the best of friends. I love to play with kids too because we get the zoomies together! Sometimes, I’m having such a good time with them, I jump up a little bit. My foster says I’ve learned the command: “down” which does the trick. I already know “sit” and “come” too! I even tell you when I have to potty by barking at the back door. I’m one smart girl! While I do have that young pyr energy, I am actually very easy on the leash, and I listen to “heel.” Going on walks is one of my favorite things to do! And, if we walk by a stream, so much the better. I’m a pyr that likes water, rain included! We can even drive to different parks because I’m good in the car. But, if you need to leave me at home, I’m great in my crate. For me, getting brushed is almost as good as going for a walk. You can brush me all day, every day! It feels so nice! Even though I’m a big white ball of fun, I can be a little shy at first when meeting new people and new dogs. Don’t get your tail in a twist, though! I warm up to people and dogs quicker than a summer afternoon. In fact, my GPRA friends say I am very loving and a snuggler! They even noticed how gently I take treats. I’m the type of pyr who cherishes her humans. See what a good Gillie Girl I am? Take me home, and I promise to be your good-est Gillie girl!

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.
