Jalapeño, here! While my name sounds spicy, I’m all sweetness in a small package. My GPRA friends say I’m on the smaller side for a pyr. When meeting new people, I’m a little shy, but just like jalapeños make you feel warm inside, I warm up to my humans quickly. Foster Mom says I’m good with people and kids. Besides snuggling them close, another way I show my family that I love them is by being housetrained. I haven’t had an accident yet, and I’m learning how to use the doggy door. I know jalapeños have to be transported in trucks to the grocery store, and just like my pepper namesake, I’m a good car rider too! It’s a fun way to get to know my new human friends. As a young pyr girl, I also enjoy playing outside. Jalapeños grow out in the garden, after all! While jalapeños don’t grow over fences, this Jalapeño can reach up to the counter. I do counter surf sometimes, but I’m a puppy and can be definitely trained through positive reinforcement only, meaning praise and treats, to stop this behavior. My favorite activity is playing with my chew toys and doggy toys. I just love them! I’ve heard jalapeños grow well with all kinds of other plants just like I do well with other dogs. It’s because I’m so friendly and playful! Jalapeños also go well with a lot of different dishes, and I get along with female dogs, male dogs, and small dogs alike. Foster Mama thinks I’d even be okay with cats because I ignore them on our walks. I’m all  peppered up to meet my new family who will love me and help me grow. Consider adopting me today!

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.
