I’m Percy Sledge, and I’m popping in to say, “Hello! Wanna be my best friend?” There’s one thing I’m passionate about above all else: people! I even love those little ones called children. Foster Mom says my particular speciality is cuddling, but I like to give kisses too. My perfect home would be where my family is home more often than not since I don’t like being alone. I’m a velcro dog, so I want to be wherever you are. Of course, sometimes, you have leave which makes me a little upset, so I need to baby-gated off to one area; that way, I won’t jump up on things when you’re gone. Speaking of jumping up, I am a big boy, and I, occasionally, counter surf; however, Foster Mama and I are working on it. Because I’m treat-motivated, I’m a proficient trainee! I’ve already learned several commands: sit, stop, okay, off. Foster Mom tells me I’m quite poised on the leash too, so I’m easy to walk. When we see other people and dogs on our walks, I’m phenomenal at being the friendly neighborhood pyr. If you want to have people over our house to visit, I’ll be sure to give them a proper pyr greeting with a pyr paw, of course! Other dogs, both male and female, can come over for a playdate as well because I consider my canine brethren to be my pals. Or, we could visit friends and neighbors as I’m a pleasant and polite car rider! I’ll always be excited to come back to our house, though, because to me, there’s no place like home. And, I treat the house like a palace by always pottying outside; that’s right, I’m completely housetrained! Whether you want to spend a peaceful afternoon brushing me or giving me lots of pets, I’ll just be happy to be by your side.

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.
