Greetings, Pyr Pals! I’m Ruth, and my name means compassionate friend. That’s because I’m a sweet and friendly girl who is ready to come home with you! I would say my BFFs, my best friends forever, are my humans. They are just so nice to cuddle with! My foster mama says I’m a velcro dog which means I want to be where you are. Because I love my humans so much, I’m protective of them. One way I protect you is by being a barker to let everyone know I am here. When you leave, though, I am okay by myself at home, but I’d prefer my family to be home more often than not. Kids, which I know is people speak for little human, are some of my bestest friends too! I think my happy, go-lucky personality is what makes me such a good companion for kiddos. My other friends are dogs (both big and small), but cats are definitely more of acquaintances. While I don’t mind them, we don’t hang out. Friends have to be respectful, and I show my foster parents how respectful I am of their space by pottying outside. I’m completely house-trained, and I even know how to use the doggy door to get to the backyard. When you want to call me in for a walk, just say my name because I come when called! What’s the old saying about friends…All you have to do is call/And I’ll be there. On the leash, I do pull a bit and I’m a big pyr girl, but I respond very well to direction. Friends are good listeners! I know friends do fun things together, and walking is one of my favorite activities. Maybe, you can walk on over to your computer and apply to adopt me today. Then, I can give you all the love and companionship you could ever want! After all, what are friends for?

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.
