Great Pyrenees

Shasta, coming at ya! My name means to be praised or commended, and since I am house-trained and potty-trained, I think it fits! When it’s potty-time, I’ll sit by the door to ask to go out. I look to my people for direction, and I’ve been told I’m obedient; I even know how to shake. I also know “sit,” “come,” and “off.” See how smart I am? My foster mom says I can be left alone without any problems too. My foster parents’ favorite quality to compliment me on is how good I am with children and how friendly I am with people. Thank you, foster parents! With kids, I enjoy playing with them and having them throw my toys and a ball for me to chase. Shasta (that’s me) also is the name of a mountain in California. Mountains are hard to the touch, but I’m soft and cuddly. I love to lay my head in your lap! While mountains stand still, I like to be walked and have fun running in the backyard. Foster Mom says that I still have puppy energy! On a walk, I can sometimes pull towards other dogs, so I need to work on redirecting my attention back on you when that happens. In and out of the home, I prefer dogs around my own size, so no small dogs or cats, please! Also, I know mountains don’t talk, but I love to speak, or bark, as you humans call it. If you’re looking for a sweet, affectionate girl to become a part of your family, I am here and ready to come home!

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.
