1.5 yrs
Great Pyrenees

I’m Xena, a 2 year old, 72 lb failed working dog who, after moving inside with my first GPRA family, is proudly housebroken, known as a sweet angel out in public, and a welcome visitor at Camp Bow Wow. I’ve been behaving a little differently at home, though, and I’m thinking maybe I need an alpha-human to help me feel calm and secure? Lots of people don’t know this but when dogs feel nervous or unsure of things, or sense stress, we sometimes protect ourselves by being a little aggressive. Kind of confusing but true.  I’m happy to say I’ve never attacked anyone although I’m wondering if kids’ higher pitched voices and constant activity might overwhelm me.  And while we’re talking dog-training stuff, I should tell you I respond to positive reinforcement much better than correction methods. I am fine being home alone, but like other young dogs, I might confuse shoes for chew toys. We can work that out, though, if you’re a strong leader and good with the training thing we talking about! If I sound like your furever dog, please email info@greatpyratlanta.com or click the “Apply to Adopt” button below.

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.
