Hellos, I am Merle. My Pyr-friend is June. We are a bonded pair which means that we will be happiest staying together. Separating a bonded pair will be quite distressing to us, and we do not want this to happen.

So, what’s better than owning one Pyr? Yep, you know where this is heading. Owning two Great Pyrenees is the answer, and we are the perfect, majestic pair.

We lived with sheep and were dedicated guardians in our previous life, but the busy highway was always a concern.

We have been through complete evaluations with GPRA’s trainer. He said that we are “fantastic dogs .” We sat for treats, let the trainer touch us all over, and did excellent walking on the leash. (June tried to show me up a bit, but I also upped my game.) After all, we are people pleasers, too! Since we were raised with lots of children, ages three to 15, we are great with the younger humans.

With time, patience, further training, and consistency, we will become devoted, affectionate, and well-mannered family dogs. To keep us safe and allow us to have regular exercise, we will require a secure fenced-in yard.

Your fabulous Pyr-duo, Merle (and June)

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.

Quin & Togepi

Age
4 yrs
Weight
80 lbs. & 100 lbs.
Sex
Male and Female
Breed
Great Pyrenees

Together, forever! This is our motto, and it has gotten us through some difficult days. GPRA asked us to share a bit about ourselves, so here goes. I am Quin (the girl with the darker ears), and my brother and sidekick is Togepi. His name is pronounced –  Toga-pea. Since humans have a little difficulty pronouncing it, I hope this helps. With all the changes in our lives, it’s very comforting hearing our names and receiving lots of love and affection.

As you can see from our picture, Togepi is bigger than me, but we snuggle like little dogs. We are desperately bonded and have been each other’s comfort space for many years. We love climbing all over our foster mom and jockeying for position to get the most ear scratches and belly rubs. We have excellent house manners, do not care about the food humans eat, and LOVE napping on furniture and beds, especially if there is a human with us. However, I’m sure you can convince us to love a comfy dog bed, too!

There are no kids in our foster home, but I am sure we will love them. As for cats, we think they want to play. However, they really do not want to engage with us. We will be great family members for a calm household with humans who have plenty of time to reassure and pet us… and keep petting us.

As easy as we are to live with, we will need a tall, strong fence that we cannot go over, go under or push over. (Yes, Pyrs can climb!) Things were not very good in our previous life, so we can get easily frightened, which is another reason we need a tall fence. Thunder and lightning are two of our least favorite things. If you help us find a closet or little hiding spot in your home and comfort us, we will be fine. We worry when our foster mom leaves us, but this is understandable considering we are still learning how to trust our surroundings.

Pyrly hopeful that our very own loving humans are somewhere out there…Quin and Togepi

Great Pyrenees

When was the last time you heard puppies described as too chill? If you said never, then we’ll be your first. We’re eight months old and weigh 70 lbs. What we know about ourselves is a short list: Yukie’s the girl (a little shy, too), I’m the boy, and we’ve lived outside, together, our entire lives. We love other dogs, car rides, and we’re even well behaved at the vet. The most important thing to know we’re bonded and GPRA promised we’ll stay together. We know people call this a big ask, but isn’t that appropriate for soon-to-be big dogs? Since we’re not allowed to use the computer (ordered way too many treats last time!), will you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below so we can meet?  Thank you from two (maybe-soon-to-be-your) loving puppies.

Great Pyrenees Mix

Hi! We’re Sadie and Lenny, a bonded pair of litter-mates! We’re 4 years old. Lenny (with the white head) weighs 125 lbs. and me, Sadie, 115 lbs. We have to be rehomed because our owner started a new job that requires traveling. We think we might be a Pyrenees/Husky mix. Let’s go ahead and talk about all the wonderful reasons why we deserve a new loving home and family to be the best of friends with! We both are sweet and loving! Since Sadie is braver, she’ll do ALL the talking!
My brother Lenny, is a little shier, but also fun and playful. I love my food and I’m very food-driven, Lenny on the other hand is very relaxed about food. We’re pretty athletic, especially me, and I’d love to go jogging with you! If you feel like taking it easy, we would still love to go on a walk, since we’re both leash-trained. Want to know a funny thing about me? People say I’m a talker sometimes, like my possible Husky relatives, and I love to cuddle. We both like all furry friends and want to play with them! I’m the brave one and Lenny is a little shy at first, but we both are curious and excited about meeting new people, dogs, even big dogs, kids and never show any aggression. I try to play with small dogs even though they’re not interested, but it doesn’t hurt to try?! We might even like cats, we don’t know, just never been around one. We know basic commands, so it’ll help whenever you want to teach us anything new. Another fun fact is that we don’t even bark at FedEx or UPS delivery people! We’re very proud to say my sister
and I are housebroken, have NO accidents, and trained for a doggy door. We respect fences, even with deer right outside the fence, no jumping, no digging. We can be left home alone and we’re
not even scared of thunderstorms. We don’t even notice them! If my brother and I sound like your possible new best friends, please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt”.
Don’t forget! Our adoption fees are HALF OFF!
