Is it my turn? Okay, here goes. I am Willow Walker, and I wish for a do-over and second chance to have a great life. But, of course, we all wish for that at some point in our lives, right?
As a young Pyr, I still need dedicated time, patience, and training from my owners. So what else can I share? I am housetrained and love car rides, and my favorite place is the backyard, which I call my Pyr-happy place. My previous family taught me the trade game, which means that if you need to take something away from me, it is best to trade it with something else. GPRA will show you how to play the trade game and explain why it is helpful to all dogs.
Here’s what GPRA’s wonderful walkers have learned about me.
“Willow is smart, gentle, friendly, active, and playful. Although somewhat shy at first, she warms up quickly and shares her Pyr-affection.”
“Willow is a sweetheart and joy to walk. Although she pulls a bit on leash walks, she will continue learning from dedicated leash training.” (I will do my best to learn good leash manners. If you bring some yummy treats on our walks, I think I will learn even faster!)
“Willow is friendly with other dogs she meets, trading sniffs and tail wags. Willow’s good looks and tall, lean frame make her a showstopper! (Why, thank you! Can you keep me brushed out so that I continue looking fabulous?)
GPRA recommends that Willow’s home have children 10+ years old.
Pyr-grateful for another chance, Willow Walker

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.
