Unfortunately, I am back with GPRA. After 18 months with my previous family, I have been returned to Rescue. Why, do you ask? Well, I still have to learn how not to be possessive of my food bowl or territorial with my house and the things I want to protect. With more training, I want to overcome these issues. What else can I share…well, I am a four-year-old female that will fit best with an experienced Great Pyrenees owner or family who does not have other dogs or cats. A backyard is also recommended for me for exercise until I learn better leash manners and do not feel that I have to overprotect those walking me. I almost forgot to share with you that I am great with children and can be touched anywhere as I love my humans. Yes, I have some learning to do, but GPRA tells me that I can still be the best Pyr for a family with additional training, consistency, and patience.

Thank you for reading my story. – Millie Joy

I am Celeste and a bit sad that I have to seek yet another home and family.  My previous owners are expecting their second child and do not feel they have the time for me.  I understand. Since I have many great dog qualities, such as being friendly, active, obedient, and playful, I am hopeful. Hearing that I can be a bit noisy is understandable because I have Great Pyrenees in me. Other great things about 8 1/2-year-old me are that I am house trained, walk great on a leash, am great with kids, cats, dogs, and can be grabbed by my collar and touched anywhere. Although I am crate trained, I prefer minimal time there because I am active and want to play a lot, so a fenced-in backyard would be an excellent thing. Exercise and outdoor time to play will also help my tendencies to chew on things. Yes, it’s a dog thing, and I’m sorry about that.

I also know my mom is a Great Pyrenees, my dad is a Kuvacz Shepherd Mix and I am just a great dog eagerly seeking a third chance… Celeste

I heard some humans say I used to live with someone who had “too many dogs.” It’s OK though, past is past and now this four-year-old, 80 lb. girl is on her way to you. Or maybe a friend or family member of yours if that’s my best forever home. GPRA and I would really appreciate your telling safe and patient dog people all about my extremely sweet nature and how dog friendly I am. Living in a shelter kinda stressed me out so I’ll probably know more about my true self once I get a GPRA foster.

Please read my story. I’m so sweet and snuggly but I have to be honest about why I need you. Easy stuff first: I’m a year old, weigh 80 lbs., am house & leash trained, and love being pet everywhere. It’s even OK to grab my collar after I get to know you. And that’s why I need patience and understanding: it takes time for me to trust people. It’s wonderful my current family does so much for their neighbors and community but all the activity and noise and strangers, well, it makes me anxious. The low fence makes it easy for me to escape the stress, but leaving the yard is dangerous and scares my family. Have you ever nurtured a dog like me who needs patience and security and calm company? Can you be inside with me, or take me outside with you? I’m not much of an alone dog, at least not now. Who knows what I’ll become with the right human, or family? Well, hopefully I chose enough of the right words to show you my heart and you’ll please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below to talk about sharing yours with me.

Since I’m only a year old–and weigh 70 lbs.—there’s plenty of time in “forever” for me to learn a new name, if you want to give me one that is. You could call me Housetrained, She Who’s Good with Dogs, Cats, and Kids or maybe Happy Dog with Nose Out the Car Window. Well, those are kinda long for first names now that I say them out loud. I bet you can think of a shorter name for a friendly, active, playful, noise, family dog who is a little shy at first, likes to go running, and is totally OK with you touching her collar. Since I’m that dog, that name would be mine, too! And after we play the name game, we can try the be-patient-while-you-help-me-learn-big-girl-barking-manners activities I’ve heard so much about in Pyr circles. ApPYRently many of us need help adapting some of our breed tendencies to neighborhood living. So, what do you think? Are you ready to please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below? I hope so because I’m ready for my new home and maybe even a new name.

Ever heard that saying about kids being blank slates? Well, I’m the puppy version of that idea. I’m about six-months-old and 60 lbs. so I have a lot to learn. Do you think you can help me discover my favorite kinds of treats? Or learn how to live with you inside but go potty outside? Oh, oh, and I want to find out if I like toys, car rides, leash walks, kids, cats, or maybe my best friend will be a bunny? Yeah, I’m open to all kinds of new experiences as long as they happen with loving, safe people in my new home. Will you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below so we can start all these awesome adventures?

Well, I guess my ghost-like name suits me since my past is a mystery story. A very nice family found this eight-year-old, 67 lb. girl wandering around an Alabama road. I’m overjoyed with all the food they’re giving me; I truly need it! I also probably need a solid fence since chain link doesn’t keep me away from the squirrels, deer, or anything else on the other side. I’m well behaved around the neighborhood kids, but I don’t know what a neighborhood is. Hopefully any kids you know are the same as the ones near my temporary home. Wish I could keep typing all kinds of awesome things about me, but I think you’ll need to please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below for more information. And when we meet, will you tell me about you and your family since so far we’ve only talked about me!

Do you have yummy food at your house? This is important because the GPRA vet says I’m almost just shy of two years old and need a lot of yummy food to weigh more than my current 50 lbs. The nice people who found me on their porch say I’m good with strangers, kids, cats, and dogs. Unfortunately, their dogs don’t like me so GPRA’s helping me find a new home. The only other things I know about myself is that it’s OK to hold my collar and it’s SUPER OK to pet me anywhere. Dogs who get pet all the time sure are lucky. And people who can snuggle with a loving Pyr who’s so grateful for being rescued are really lucky, too. If you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below, then maybe I can be that Pyr and you can be that person?

Well, by now you might know my pack and I just arrived at GPRA. I’m one of the girls,  2.5-years-old, and need to lose a few of my 116 lbs. As for my adoptability rating, I hope it’s super high so here goes… I’m good with other dogs and kids, never met a cat and I’m content being in my pen. Yep, I’ve lived outside my whole life but I’m not a livestock guardian like some outdoor Pyrs. Humans call me very shy and laid back, unless I’m in a car. THAT is not a favorite activity so when you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below to meet me, it’s best if you drive to me. Calming meds or chews help so we don’t have to stay home all the time. But, if you’re kind of shy or laid back, then maybe we can just fall in love and hang out at home?
