Lucky J

Great Pyrenees

Here’s a dog secret: we’re just as upset saying goodbye to our people as you are saying goodbye to one of us. I’m an 8-year-old, 88 lb. boy who’s been “Lucky” enough to have a wonderful life, thanks to my GPRA mom who is heartbroken letting me go. Apparently “assisted living” doesn’t mean sharing a room with your beloved Great Pyrenees. Whoever takes me in will give my mom such peace and in return, gain a housetrained, laid back, loving dog who is playful and fine being home alone. To be fair, I prefer being with my family, even though it takes a bit of time for me to warm up to new people, especially men. See, I’m kind of timid and definitely afraid of alpha dogs. Passive dogs are fine, which is why my mom thinks I’ll be ok with cats, even though I’ve never met one. Oh, this is fun: I love pushing things over and around with my nose—small moveable objects, boxes, chairs. It is one of my favorite games! I can even open some doors so a fenced yard would be a good idea. And like most Pyrs, I love the sound of my own voice, particularly when the FedEx and UPS trucks show up. I like the drivers, it’s just fun chasing the trucks along my fence line! So, how did I do? Is this enough for you to either email or click “Apply to Adopt” below? I sure hope so because I really want to promise my mom I’ll be OK and I need you to make that true.

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.
