Howdy, Pyr Pals! I’m River Roo, and it’s rootin’ tootin’ good to meet you! Foster Mama says I’m as sweet as the chocolate river in Willy Wonka because of my happy and loving personality. I go with the flow! And, when I have to go, I let you know. That’s another reason why Foster Mom thinks I’m so special; I’m potty-trained! When it comes to other dogs, I’m as easy-going as a lazy river. My foster dog sibling is my best friend, so I’d really love to go to a home with another dog! We like to play together in the backyard. I love people too. The gentle rushing of a river is so comforting, and my snuggles are just as soothing. Leaning against my foster family for love and pets is something I’m very good at. On our family walks, I do tend to zig-zag a little just like most rivers, but we are working on it together. I know I’ll get better at walking on a leash because walking is one of my favorite activities! The other dogs have been telling me that digging is bad too, so I’m learning not to do that. While regular rivers don’t need to eat, I love my food. Because I’m food-motivated, being trained with treats will come naturally to me. There’s one skill I’ve already mastered: fetching- which makes me really unique for a pyr. Rivers can flow in any direction, but this River is running towards you!

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.
