Hi! You probably noticed the slightly unusual fur pattern on my right back leg. The orthopedic vet had to shave my fur to repair my torn ACL. And now this 3-year-old, 157 lb. boy (yep, I said 157 lbs.!) is healing and feeling great. My foster mom thinks my name should be Elvis because I’m a burning hunk of love, but she says I’m totally chill, too. Humans can be so confusing, don’t you know “burning” and “chill” are opposites? Here’s a bunch of stuff that does make perfect sense, though… I’m a happy, sweet, agreeable patient who has instantly loved every one I’ve met in my GPRA life so far. I’m perfect on a leash, housetrained, and content being home alone. I like car rides, being brushed, and listening to someone read to me. That could make me an excellent study buddy! My stomach is way better now that I’m eating Fromm so if possible, I’d like to stay on that food when I join your family. I’ll probably need to lose some weight but the idea of fewer treats is too upsetting to think about so on to the good things: I’m out of pain, on my way back to having four strong legs, and ready to meet you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below when you’re ready to meet me.

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.
