Great Pyrenees

My road to GPRA came through the Gwinnett County animal shelter because this 6-year-old, 82 lb. girl angered one too many neighbors one too many times with her roaming ways. My former family chose the shelter instead of securing the property. To be fair, I have no idea how many milk bones it costs to build a fence so I’m taking a positive approach and looking forward instead of back! My foster mom says I’m slowly coming out of my shell, which is really funny because I’m not a turtle! Anyway, she says I just want to be with people, that I love treats (duh!), show no signs of aggression towards other dogs when we’re walking, and I really like the neighborhood kids. Apparently, I know some commands and in true Pyr form, I decide when to act like it. However, I’m consistent about two things: being brushed (great) and fireworks (awful, terrifying, please make it stop). It’s ok to leave me alone at home but I really prefer being with my humans and I’ve even started sleeping in my foster mom’s bedroom. What does your bedroom look like? Is there an empty Pyr spot waiting for me? If yes, please email info@greatpyratlanta.com or click “Apply to Adopt” below so we can see if it fits 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.
