Hi, I am Socks. Sadly, I was abandoned and left behind due to a very distressing home circumstance. I will spare you the details.

Thankfully, a caring neighbor knew what was happening and stepped in to help rescue me. I still miss my human children, but GPRA tells me that there are lots of families out there looking for a friendly, loving, big, fluffy boy like me. It feels good to be hopeful again.

Although my guardian neighbor told GPRA that I am a charming and playful boy, my home life was quite turbulent. It will take time to decompress and trust. A loving and patient owner who will invest time in helping me feel safe and less anxious will get me on the right path. I will also benefit from dedicated time and training to learn good manners. It will be helpful to tether me on car rides until I can chill out more, but I promise to work hard to make you proud.

As GPRA learns more about me, I will update you.
Thank you for saving me and giving me hope for a fresh start, GPRA!

Pyr-eager for my happily-ever-after, Socks

PS You will understand why my name is Socks when you meet me!

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.
