Bailey Blueberry (BB) is here to wish all of you a Happy 2022! As for what I want in our New Year, well, you already know. I want a forever home where I am part of the family. As a younger Pyr, I will benefit from dedicated time and consistent training from my humans because no one has helped me learn how to be my best Pyr self. Therefore, I am in learning mode. I will benefit from exposure to new experiences and humans who will build my trust. GPRA is already helping me, and I am learning a lot in my foster home. So far, this is what GPRA knows about me.
“Bailey Blueberry is a cuddler and love bug. During her cuddle couch time, she loves being in between her humans and will ensure she touches both while falling asleep and then snoring.”
“She is a protector and very smart. She is learning what things she should bark at and which are of no concern. However, her humans need to continue helping her with positive reinforcement and encouraging comments to guide her learning.”
“Bailey Blueberry loves her tennis ball and will toss it in the air and then pounce on it. She is very amusing!”
“BB’s work in progress areas are walking on a leash, cats, and learning how to act properly around other dogs. Her young age and lack of training and exposure are probably the reasons. But, again, dedicated time and consistent training will make a world of difference for Bailey Blueberry. She is smart and will learn quickly.”
Yep, I have some learning to do and am eager to get started with my forever humans.
Your cuddle Pyr, Bailey Blueberry

Aloha! Charmingly named after a lively Disney character, my name is Lilo. Did you know that Lilo means “generous one?” Yes, I have a generous Pyr-heart!
I am wishing for an exceptional and loving home and owner. You see, I am almost completely deaf. While I still have a little hearing, it is fading. But, do not worry because I understand many things my humans communicate to me. Here is what GPRA knows about me.
“Lilo will do best in a home where she can bond with her humans. She will need an owner or family with kids that are home all/most of the time. Lilo struggles with separation anxiety, and we are helping her feel more secure.” (Yes, life has been hard on me. I am thankful to have understanding and kind humans who support me. In return, I will be your constant and faithful companion.)
“Lilo needs another dog for companionship. She loves to run and is very athletic and will need a yard, but she likes sleeping a lot, too.” (What can I say, I like quiet time, too, which is prime time for cuddles.)
Your Pyrly loving girl, Lilo

Happy New Year, everyone! I am Puma. Now with the best Rescue family (GPRA) and in a loving foster home, I trust these good humans to find my happily ever after.
Here is what GPRA knows about me.
“Puma is great with kids and people. She is friendly, active, playful, and an easy-going family dog.
“A fenced-in yard and lots of walks will be great for Puma as she is a healthy, fit and active young dog.”
“Puma’s best friend was an outside cat that she often curled up beside for naps.” (Yes, I miss my cat friend.)
As GPRA learns more about me, I will update you.
Time to ring in the New Year together!
Your Pyrly beautiful girl, Puma

Hellos, everyone! I am proud mama Pyr Toastie. It’s hard for me to believe how much my life has changed after bringing seven puppies into the world in a shelter. Thankfully, GPRA helped my puppies, their handsome Pyr sire, and me. I am one proud mama and did my best by the puppies! Now that my babes are being adopted into loving homes, it is my turn to find my happy fur-ever.
Did you see the fun video of me barking at my foster human sister because I wanted her sandwich? Yep, that’s adorable me! So what’s a hungry mama to do when she sees a sandwich? Lucky for me, I got a little bit of that sandwich!

Hellos. I am Nellie. Although timid, GPRA is helping me return to Great Pyrenees status. Unfortunately, since I am pretty scared of men, GPRA thinks I was abused or hurt at some point in my past life. Yes, I know it’s sad, but I’m doing my best to start the next chapter. Lucky for me, GPRA’s trainer is working with me and building my confidence and trust. Those yummy treats and lots of patience will help me open my Pyr heart again.
Here are a few things that GPRA’s volunteers know about me.
“Nellie is a sweet and curly angel. Her confidence grows each day!”
“Nellie is a little shy at first but warms up when she gets to know you. She is a curly-haired beauty and super sweet!”
“She is making great strides and even let me clean out her ears.”
“Nellie had the best time romping around the play yard with Festus. Both dogs enjoyed running back and forth together along the fence. (Yep, having a play buddy is fantastic and gives me a sense of security, too!)
So, that’s a bit of me. As my Pyr-confidence and happiness increase, I will keep you updated on my progress.
Pyrly yours, Nellie

Happy day wishes to everyone! I’m Sasha!

Hard to believe a beautiful, fun, and full-of-life Pyr needs a do-over already, right? Well, I do! With Pyrs like me, our learning curve can be a bit steeper. Just keep in mind that I am still a youngster that needs consistent guidance to continue learning good leash and house manners. My progress to date has included learning commands such as heel, sit, come, down, crate-up and place.

Belly rubs are one of my favorite things. I’m also house-trained, which is top on your list, right?

For whatever reason, I really gravitate toward trusting male humans. So, if you are one of them and single, I am your girl.

GPRA recommends a knowledgeable Pyr owner in a one-adult home and a fenced-in backyard for me. They also think it will be best if I’m the only dog of the house. With time, patience and consistency, I will get better at not needing to resource-guard my favorite humans. If you are willing to give me a chance, I will continue working hard to be my best Pyr-self.

Your still learning and Pyr-fun girl, Sasha

Greetings to all! I am Mila! If you live life to the fullest and seek an active, very smart, playful, and fun Pyr, I am your girl. I am proof that the very best things only need dedicated time, patience, and lots of love. My joyful, highly engaging, and full-of-life personality certainly shines through in my photos, right?
GPRA’s best-of-the-best foster family continues to be amazed at how much I have learned and cannot wait to tell the world all about me. Seeing their happiness and joy in my progress makes me one proud girl. They also know that I will continue to blossom and thrive with a confident, active, patient, and knowledgeable Pyr owner. Here are a few things that they want to share with you.
“Mila is a very sweet, young girl. She is also very smart, with an emphasis on ‘very.’ Therefore, a knowledgeable and consistent Pyr owner will know what she needs to keep her mind and playful energy engaged. She also needs lots of attention and cuddles.”
“Mila will be a perfect dog for someone who is genuinely dedicated to her and continues to invest time in her. I would love for Mila to have a backyard and a large-breed male dog to play with as she loves my young, large male. They play non-stop together.”
“Mila will be an exceptional hiking buddy. She will be a perfect companion to an active owner who loves hiking, exploring, and tackling new adventures.”
“Mila can catch treats. She has also learned other fun games, such as stacking a few treats on her paw and telling her to ‘leave it’ as you stack the next treat. These games stimulate her playful personality and intelligence.”
So, there is much more to learn about me, and I cannot wait to meet you! Do you know some games to teach me? If yes, I cannot wait!
Your full-of-life Pyr girl, Mila

For consistency purposes, GPRA recommends teenage or older children in Mila’s fur-ever home. Consistency will be essential for Mila’s continued success.

Good day wishes to everyone! I’m the affectionate and adoring Snowflake Rose. Unfortunately, even though caring humans made multiple attempts to get my owner to surrender me, I had to live a life filled with neglect. But, I never gave up hope, and through it all, I kept my loving Pyr heart!
Here are a few things that my foster family has learned about me.
“Snowflake Rose is by far the most loveable and attention-seeking Pyr we have ever had. She adores affection from both humans and animals (even cats)!” (Yes, sadly, I am making up for living an isolated, neglected, and penned-up life. But, not anymore, thanks to GPRA!)
“Snowflake Rose knows commands such as ‘sit, ‘come,’ ‘down,’ and ‘no.’ “
“The minute you touch or pet Snowflake Rose, she will close her eyes and Pyr paw you to continue. She very much loves companionship and physical touch from her humans. We have never encountered a more gentle dog than Snowflake Rose.”
“From the first day with us, Snowflake Rose is making great progress learning house manners and trusting her surroundings. But, when she gets unsure of new things, she gives us a low bark. It’s as if she is seeking our help and telling us she is scared. So, we take things slowly with Snowflake Rose.”
“Snowflake Rose loves attention so much that she kept our master gardener neighbors company all day as they worked on our shared property line. She moved with them as they worked down the line trimming back the landscaping, no barking, but instead, she was very content and curious watching them work throughout the day. She was definitely in her element, and her Pyr-happiness showed.” (Yes, for the first time, I am finally living and only now know what love, kindness, and happiness feel like.)
Pyrly grateful forever, Snowflake Rose ❄️ 🌹
