Summer is just around the corner, and so are we! We’re the Summer Litter, and we’re so excited to come home with you! Just look at us frolicking in the sun in that first picture. As pups, we still have that rise and shine energy which means we will need a way to get out our zoomies and a place to do our training. Us little rays of sunshine will also need potty-training, leash-training, and basic command training. The most important thing with pyr puppy training is a sunny disposition a.k.a. positive reinforcement. Basically, whenever you’re trying to teach us anything like sit or pottying outside, praise and treats are the right way to help us learn. If you give us a lot of love, patience, and positive reinforcement (treats and praise), we’ll be walking on sunshine! Most of us pups are pyr girlies: Faith, Buffy, Anya, Dawn, and Willow. Two of us, though, are pyr boys: Giles and Spike. Pyr puppies are known to brighten people’s lives, so if you’re ready to fill your house with positive vibes, consider taking one of us home today!

We’re Elsa and Perrin, and we’re a bonded pair which means we’re best buds for life! Hi, I’m Elsa. I’ve heard that Elsa is the name of the elder sister in that famous Disney movie, and I’m an older sister too. Us big sisters like to be the boss, so no cats or small dogs, please. We really like to be the only two animals. Perrin is my rock, and he’s all I need. As the older sister, I also have to set a good example. One way I am a great role model is how calm and well-behaved I am in the home. I’m housetrained, of course, and I can be left home alone without any issues. Hello, I’m Perrin! My sister will tell you that I have enough energy for the two of us. My GPRA friends say I’m bouncy and love to play, so a yard to get out my zoomies would be wonderful! I do need a six-foot fence, though, because I could jump a shorter one. I’m a young pyr boy who is always up for an adventure, so make sure to keep me on leash before you open the front door because I might try to slip by you! Like my big sis says, I’m rock solid in all the ways that matter. As long as I have Elsa, I’m a good boy when you leave the home, and I’m housetrained too. We’re also rock steady when it comes to commands. Elsa and I know “sit” and “down” really well. Elsa, here, chiming in! Probably the best quality we share is how much we love our humans, including those little humans called children. We’re a friendly pair of pyrs to everyone we meet. Just look at how much we smile in all our pictures! If you’re hoping to brighten your day with two pyrs who will give you all the love you could ever want, think about adopting us today!

Winter greetings! We’re the Winter Surprise Litter, and we’re thrilled to meet you. Because we’re puppies, we are going to need lots of love and patience. We have to learn how to be potty trained and leash trained, and those skills take time and effort to build. Basic command training is something we will need too, and all this training needs to be done with treats and praise only, please! We call it positive reinforcement. The first four pictures are of us boy pyrs. Our names are Paws who has big pyr paws, Blue who will brighten your day when you have the blues, Sailor who will sail into your life with lots of cheer, and Shantee who is as soft and cuddly as can be. The last three pictures are of us girl pyrs. Our names are Red like a pretty bow, Bones like the toys we hope to chew on, and Rebel like a bell ringing in the new year. Winter is here, and so are we. Consider taking one of us fluffy bundles home if you’re interested in raising a pyr pup this winter season!

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s the Super-Pyr! I am hoping to fly into your home and bring you lots of joy and love! In a way, by rescuing me, I’ll be rescuing you from a life without an adorable pyr puppy! To become the super-pyr that I know I can be, I’ll need lots of positive reinforcement to learn how to be house-trained, leash-trained, and listen to basic commands. As a super-pup, I’ll also need a lot of attention and bonding time. Take some time and read the story about the real-life, doggy hero that I was named after.

Hi, Pyr Pup Friends! We’re the Newton Litter, and we’re so pleased to meet you! Each of us has two pictures! Meet us young boy pyrenees: Wubbzy, Walton, and Widget. First up is Wubbzy, that’s me, is the cutie in the blue collar. Second is Walton- Hi, everybody!- I’m the one in the red-collar. As puppies, we will need lots of positive reinforcement training because we are still learning how to go potty outside, how to walk on a leash, and how to do basic commands like sit. The thing we need most, though, is love!

Hi folks!
We are Bilo and Bilu – the sweeter than honey bonded pair just waiting to meet you and stick to your heart.
Our owner had to surrender us because they weren’t able to care for us any longer. That makes us sad, because we love our humans and have so much love to give.
Since we just arrived, the GPRA folks are still getting to know us, but here are some things the fabulous volunteers have to say about us:
“precious pair”
“love to get loved on”
“beautiful and sweet”
Yes, we are blushing underneath our floof. What can we say? Come and meet us. We know we will add the love your home needs (x2!).

Bonded Pairs are adopt one and get the second one for half the adoption fee!

Hi. I am Anya, and this is my brother, Freddie. We were littermates and have always been together, through awful days and now good ones. To give you a little window into our previous life, we lived tied up on a five-foot chain. (Yes, it was horrible.) Now, it is time to put the past behind us and set our paws on a path toward happier days.
GPRA has learned that we are loving, friendly, active, and playful Pyrs. But, of course, as young Pyrs, we still need lots of leash work and obedience training (so, at least in some ways, we are like every young dog)!
We are thankful that GPRA is helping us return to our “Great” Pyrenees status. Now that we no longer live tied up, Freddie loves running around a big yard and feeling free, so he would especially like having a backyard. As for me, I’d love a yard, too! But, I just want my brother happy, and as long as we are together, I will be happy, too!
Pyrly thankful, Anya and Freddie

Hey there! I am Grizzly (AKA Grizz), and this is my great friend and lifelong companion, Harper. Isn’t she gorgeous? Despite neglect and abandonment, we had each other, and because of that, we are bonded, which means that GPRA wants us adopted together because we share quite a special bond.
Harper: “Grizz, it’s my turn now. Can I share the story about our guardian angel? Our guardian angel and now foster mom jumped at the opportunity to help us when our previous owner no longer cared to look for us and get us home safely.”
Grizz: “As great guardians of humans and anything else we want to keep watchful eyes on, we did not know guardians existed for Great Pyrenees. Ours is a very caring human who knew we needed help.  Despite abandonment, we have kept our loving Pyr hearts. If anything, our hearts are bigger because we are Pyr-grateful!”
Harper: “Some of our early pictures show the result of living a neglected life, but we are gaining weight and getting healthier each day. One day, our fur will look as gorgeous as all of the other Pyrs waiting for adoption.”
Here are a few things our guardian angel/foster mom knows about us.
“Grizzly is very funny, playful, easy-going and loves his best Pyr-friend and girlfriend, Harper. Harper is incredibly easy-going and strolls along.”
“Both Grizzly and Harper are friendly and kind dogs that love to hang out with their humans.
“Grizz and Harper will need a very secure fenced-in yard as they may attempt to go over a fence or get through a small opening, if not supervised. They are currently living on a horse farm and love country living.”
“Both dogs enjoy three walks every day and have relatively good leash manners.”
“I adore these dogs and their undeniable bond to each other. Both are full of fun and mischief, too! One day, Grizzly emptied my horse tack trunk by carefully removing 14 brushes and scattering each brush around him. Then, Harper joined the fun by grabbing a bottle of fly spray and placing it next to her. Grizzly and Harper are delightful and joyful Pyrs!” (Yep, we know how to have fun with our humans!)
So, that’s our story! Are you ready for a Pyr- fun adventure with Harper and me?
Pyrly yours, Grizzly (and Harper)
