Hellos. I am Pyr-sweet and well-mannered Tanya! Would you like to go for a walk with me? If yes, grab a leash, and let’s go!
Before being surrendered to GPRA, I slept in a van because my owner did not have other options. Now, I’m ready for a new life and am thankful for my wonderful foster humans as they have prepared me for my own happily-ever-after.
Here are a few things my foster humans want you to know about me.
“Tanya is a lovely dog. She is also smart, strong, a protector, and a cuddler.”
“Tanya will make an ideal companion for someone who works at home and can take her on walks throughout the day. Tanya does very well on the leash and enjoys two one-mile walks each morning and evening. Otherwise, Tanya can be found napping for the remainder of the day.”
“Tanya has some resource guarding tendencies with certain things. We understand this and always trade for a higher value item with her when we absolutely have to take something away or when she will not listen to our ‘leave it’ command. (Sorry, sometimes I am a little stubborn.)
“Tanya is house trained and knows the ‘sit,’ ‘paw,’ ‘leave it,’ and ‘lay down’ commands.”
“One of Tanya’s favorite things is to be brushed. (Yes, just keep brushing.)She also lets us touch her everywhere, including paws, mouth, and trimming around the booty with no reaction.”
“Since Tanya loves car rides, it is a joy to take her with us. She does great with most other dogs and loves small children who approach and want to pet her.”
“Proper greetings with our visiting friends will help Tanya be successful. GPRA will explain this process.”
“Tanya had the best time during Georgia’s January snow days. Of course, her first reaction was to eat as much snow as possible.”
“Tanya loves staring out of our french door windows to watch the day pass by.”
Yep, I am a bit stubborn; no one is Pyr-fect, right? But, I know I will be an excellent companion with a little extra effort on my human’s part and consistency. So, are you ready to meet me?
Pyr-ready for you, Tanya
*GPRA recommends that Tanya’s home not have small children.

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.
