Great Pyrenees

Hey, y’all! How are you doing today? I am Gus. You are wondering why a handsome, young Pyr such as me is in Rescue. Well, to make a long story short, I was a bit too much for my previous family to train.

GPRA thinks that I will do best with an experienced Great Pyrenees owner, someone who will know how to work with my stubbornness and early stage of resource guarding.  It takes a consistent, gentle, and confident approach to teach Pyrs like me, but we will overcome. If you have had a similar Pyr, you understand. The cool part is that once I get over a few learning hurdles, I will be a Pyr-awesome boy!

While I am learning to trust my owners and what they are teaching me, GPRA recommends that my future home not have younger children. A home with only adults is probably best in the beginning.

Please have faith in me as I am only ten months old. Testing the boundaries is typical of young Pyrs like me. With dedicated time, lots of exercise, patience, training, and a confident and knowledgeable owner, I will transform into your faithful guardian.

One more thing, I am house trained and know commands such as sit, stay, come, off, and down. I like other dogs and cats but do not want them too close to my food bowl. Yes, I need to work on that, too.

Thank you for your understanding.

Wanting to be a good boy but still learning.
Pyrly yours, Gus

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.
