Hi, pyr friends! My name is Luna Izzo. My GPRA transporter gave me the last name of some college basketball coach. I don’t know anything about basketball, but I would love to snuggle with you while you watch the game. As long as there are no cats swishing around, I’m happy! The nice lady also says that I am the calmest dog she’s ever transported. That’s because I love traveling (like the basketball term) in the car. In this case, traveling is a good thing! I’m a great house guest too because I’m always house-trained. I can even be left home alone without being destructive. I want to be a good girl even when my coaches (that’s you) aren’t looking! When we’re at home together, I like to cuddle and take naps. Practicing commands can be fun too. I’ll do a command, and you can make the assist by giving me a training treat. I already know sit, stay, and off, so my training is paying off. I’m mostly good on a leash as well! I just need a little help with pulling when I see a dog sometimes; not all dogs make me want to pull, but some do. A family who doesn’t mind helping me with leash-training would be great. I’m a big girl, so I can be strong on the leash when something gets me excited. With some practice and positive reinforcement, though, my leash-walking skills will be a slam dunk! Walking is really fun as is running around the yard. The yard is like my basketball court, and I love to run up and down through the grass. What I really like, however, is to be petted! I will even gently nudge you if you stop. It’s my friendly way of saying, “More love, please!” I’m looking for a furever family that will make a fast break for me and help me make the alley-oop. You’ll throw a ball of love towards me, I’ll catch it, and put it into the basket of my heart. Could you be my perfect match? I’d love to join your team!

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.
