Hello, everybody! I’m Troy Turner. Pleased to meet you! Did you know my name means soldier? I stand tall like a soldier at attention because I have really long legs. I’m also ready for a uniform check at any time because I keep my coat in tip-top shape. Foster Mama says I love to be bathed and brushed, so keeping me groomed is easy. Us soldiers also have to be strong, so I need to gain some weight. I do love my food and beef lung treats too! Boot camp always involves exercise to build muscle, and walking and running are so much fun. I even know the words: “walk” and “go out.” We have to be brave as well. Cars and leashes were new to me, but I took to them like a champ! I rode well in the car when I was transported, and I was easy on the leash too. After all, marching is being-a-soldier 101! Every soldier also knows how to be observant, so I do pull a bit on the leash when I smell something exciting. I do know “sit,” though, so you can ask me to do so before you put on the leash. I’ll need a 6-foot fence too because I could escape if something catches my interest. A good soldier always watches out for his squad, and I’ll love keeping my eye on you. I wouldn’t want to miss any cuddling opportunities! But, when you have to leave the compound, I mean house, you can count on me to protect it and not destroy anything. Napping is nice too, so I’ll probably get some shut-eye in while you’re gone. You won’t have to worry about me using the potty either because I’m house-trained! In fact, I know how to use a doggy door, or I sit by the back door to ask to go out. Part of soldiering is also being a diplomat, and I am friendly to everyone and every dog that I meet. And, once I get to know you, I love getting snuggles and pets. It’s all part of my gentle nature and laid-back personality. I am good with other dogs as well, so they can be a part of our crew too. My foster dog brother and I love to play together, and I’m such a trooper because I share all my toys with him. I’m a sweet and loving boy who can’t wait to be the newest recruit in your family!

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.
