Willy Wonka here! How are you today? I’m great every day because I’m one lucky Pyr to have landed with GPRA. Sadly, I was on my final days in the Shelter last summer. And, without Rescue stepping up to help, I would no longer be here, which is a heartbreaking reality for many dogs. So, I am more than immensely grateful to GPRA!
I am now with a fantastic and fun foster family, and you will learn why at the end of my bio. Here is what my foster family knows about me.
“Willy Wonka is a cuddler, out-going, curious, friendly, and a shadow.” (Yes, I like following my humans wherever they go!)
“During the day, Willa Wonka is a couch potato.  However, he has spurts of energy, which subside after having an outlet for the energy by outside time or playtime with a favorite toy.”
“Willy Wonka has had some leash training. He does great on the leash until he gets excited and will benefit from continued leash work.” (I promise to work hard to continue learning good leash manners.)
“He is learning basic commands such as ‘sit.’ He knows ‘sit’ so well that he will just ‘sit’ to be happy! He also responds to ‘off’ and will respond to ‘come Willy’, so he is learning.” (Yep, I will sit all day long for those yummy treats!)
“Willy Wonka is house-trained and will paw at the door when he wants to go outside. He is loving life as the only pet in his foster home.”
“Willa Wonka loves car rides and even watches TV.” (What do you like watching on TV because I will be right by your side!)
“My favorite things about Willy Wonka are his smile and demeanor. This boy wants to give love. He will sit and look at you with adoring eyes and give his Pyr paw. He is a very good-natured dog and makes me smile every day.” (You make me smile, too! Thank you for being there for me!)
Now, drum roll, please. Would you believe my foster Dad wrote me a song? How great is that, right?
You will need to sing the song to the tune of Gene Wilder’s “Pure Imagination” from the movie “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.”
🎶 🎶 🎶
Come adopt me, And you’ll be
In a world of PYR-imagination
Take me home, and you’ll see
I’m the PYR of your imagination
We’ll begin, as just friends
Traveling in the car of my embracer
What you’ll see will defy explanation
If you want to view PYR-adise
Simply look around and view me
Anything you want to do, I want to do it
Wanna change my life?
Then let’s do it!
There is no life I know
To compare with PYR-imagination
Living with me and you’ll be free
If you always remember to brush me!
Your Pyr-imagination boy, Willy Wonka

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.
