Hi! I am the friendly and loving Polar Blizzard! Even though my name might sound a little foreboding, know that this Polar Blizzard will melt hearts!
Lucky for me, my Pyr-tastic foster parents are eager to tell you all about me. Here goes…
“Polar Blizzard loves his humans. He is a confident boy and checks on his humans throughout the day to see what we are doing. He will bond quickly with trusting humans. During the day and sometimes in the evening, Polar finds a quiet place in a closet area to rest and sleep.” (Yep, I love being in close proximity with my humans! Did you know that Pyrs are gregarious? I will also enjoy having another Pyr-friend and/or fur-sibling home with me for companionship, too.)
“Polar Blizzard is great with visitors. When neighbors visit, he leans up against them for more petting.” (I love receiving affection. The more attention, the merrier I am!)
“Polar Blizzard takes two long walks each day and some shorter walks. He is good on a leash and does not pull or show much interest in other dogs.” (Walks are the best, and I love spending lots of quality time with my humans! I hope to enjoy lots of daily walks in the future, too!)
Oh, one more thing, GPRA recommends that my future home not have cats or smaller dogs.
Pyr-ready for adoption and my very own loving family, Polar Blizzard

Hellos from us to you!
We are the bonded, outgoing, and just-wanna-have-fun Starsky and Hutch coming to you from the big screen with paws ready for lots of love!

Starsky: We are active and fun-loving boys! Some of our favorite pastimes are running around and being with humans!
Hutch: We hope that our future humans will play and walk with us!
Starsky: Another favorite pastime is eating! Yes, breakfast and dinner are favorite times of the day. As growing boys, we like our groceries! We need to eat slower, and feeding in separate spaces will help us.
Hutch: You tell them, Starsky…I am perfecting my puppy begging eyes! You forgot to mention that treats are great, too!
Starsky: Another thing about us is that we have a lot of energy, which is typical in young dogs, especially Pyrs!
Hutch: We are excited when we see humans and jump for joy!
Starsky: With additional guidance from our humans, we will learn not to jump! Those treats will help us learn commands and good manners.
Hutch: Yep, treats, treats, treats! Outside, we do our business pretty well, too! Can we have treats when we come back to the house?
Starsky: Our foster family says that we are almost entirely housetrained, which is excellent for young Pyrs.
Hutch: We will also need lots of walks for exercise and a secure, fenced-in backyard for playtime.

Hoping for lots of Pyr-adventures with our humans!

Hello, dog-loving humans! My name is Cotton, and I’m Pyr-ready for adoption! This is what GPRA knows about me.

“Cotton is outgoing, curious, smart, and such a loving and playful boy!” (Aw-shucks…thank you!)

“Cotton is active and ready to play and explore! Cotton walks very well on the leash and will continue to benefit from leash work. Although he enjoys outside exercise time, he also likes to come inside and chill out.” (Do you like walks as much as I do? If yes, grab a leash, and let’s go!)

“Cotton loves to be brushed.” (Yes, I do! Brushing shows me affection and keeps me looking handsome and feeling fabulous!)

“Cotton loves rope toys. He is a quick learner, too.” (Can I have a rope toy in my forever home? If yes, thank you!)

GPRA recommends a knowledgeable and confident Pyr owner who will form a trusting and solid bond with Cotton. In addition, Cotton’s future humans will need to provide ongoing obedience training and consistent positive reinforcement to continue shaping his behaviors and learning. GPRA also recommends that Cotton is the only dog in the house.

Can’t wait for my very own human buddy, who will help me learn how to be the best Pyr boy possible!

Pyrly yours, Cotton

Happy day greetings to all! I am Harry. As a young Pyr, I have a lot to figure out and learn. Similar to every young dog, I will need patience, dedicated time, and training to help me be my very best Pyr self!  Are you ready to help me learn?
Lucky for me, I am now with a wonderful foster family. Gosh, I did not know humans could be so kind and loving. Here is what my foster family knows about me.
“Harry is very loving and joyful when he feels safe and loved and will give you the very best tail wags! But, for now, Harry seems to do best in a quiet and calm setting as he is still decompressing and learning all about his new surroundings and humans.”
“Harry has not had one single accident in our home. And, he is only ten months old -wow!”
“Harry is smart and picks up cues from our Pyr.  However, our Pyr is on the submissive side, so I think a more alpha Pyr will be an excellent coach for Harry to help build his confidence and keep him in line.”
“He is reactive to all new noises and barks deeply. I think he may have been an outside dog as every single house noise seems utterly foreign to him. However, he is getting used to our everyday noises. Today, no reaction to the coffee brewing or the cereal bowl and spoons clanging over breakfast. Progress!”
“Harry is terrified of the garbage truck.” (Whatever is that big thing that makes lots of noise? Will it return?)
“Harry has adapted wonderfully to our home with our hardwood flooring. However, Harry will not go up the stairs. We encourage him up the steps, but he gets frightened, freezes, and will not budge. (Cannot say that I have ever seen stairs before, and once I get up, how ever do I get down?)
“Yes, Harry can be a little needy, but it is in a very tender and endearing way. I question how much love Harry received in his former life as we do not know his backstory. But, if Harry trusts you, he gives the most AMAZING and INTENTIONAL love you can receive from a dog…And, I have a dog, and it’s a unique kind of love he gives/needs. Harry also greets you with the most JOYOUS tail wags as if he has not seen you for months.”
“Last night, Harry slept straight through the night and awakened us with lots of smooches, love and tail wagging. Harry is such a LOVING and endearing young Pyr, and I know GPRA will find him the very best home!”
“One of my favorite things about Harry is his soulful eyeliner eyes and unique eyeliner ears! (Aww, thank you. My Pyr-heart just doubled in size. Thank you for loving me.)
Your Pyr-endearing boy, Harry

Hey, all. I am the loveable Oso Bear! Would you believe that I was surrendered to a Shelter because I kept getting out? All I want is to be loved, feel safe and find my very own fur-ever family.

GPRA’s dedicated walking volunteers are the most fabulous humans I have ever met, which makes me Pyr-happy. Here’s what they said bout me.

“Oso Bear is such a sweet, goofy boy! He saw a squirrel run by and did not seem too bothered. He is not overly interested in treats and prefers petting. He will Pyr paw you for pets. He is amazing on the leash and so sweet. I want to cuddle him all day!” (I want to cuddle with you all day, too!)

“Oso Bear is one affectionate dude. He greeted me with a big gentle hug and then an immediate Pyr paw! (Aw -shucks. Thank you.)

“Oso Bear welcomed lots of petting at our first meeting. Sadly, he looks a bit rough and needs fur to grow back in places. But, with grooming, a bath or two, and good nutrition, he will be a very handsome boy!” (My Pyr heart loves all of these compliments!)

“Oso Bear is a very friendly Pyr. He is extremely light on the leash and heeled all the way. He did not react to nearby deer. He needs 10 + pounds and is going to be one spectacular-looking Pyr!”

What else do you need to know to fall in love with me? How about you come to meet me?

Your Pyr-paw boy, Oso Bear 🐾♥️🐾

Hi! I am Big Boy! Well, I am not a big boy yet, but I’m working on it. As a young, neglected, and abandoned young Pyr, the early months of my life were not good. Sadly, my family left me behind when they moved, which has me wondering why they even got me in the first place. However, that’s enough about my past. It’s time to turn the page and start again. The good news is that I am learning that humans can be kind and loving, and I am trusting and settling into my foster home very quickly.
Here’s what GPRA knows about me:
“Big Boy is smart, energetic, and playful. He has a lot of puppy energy in him.”
“It was sad to see him so terrified when his foster humans picked him up. But, after hearing kind and encouraging words, Big Boy was ready to trust and engage.” (I have learned not to trust things, but my foster humans were so kind to me that I could not help but feel safe and secure!)
“Big Boy will benefit from continued leash work as he is still learning. He is also learning the ‘shake’ command and knows the ‘sit’ and ‘no’ commands.” (Yep, I’m just a youngster, do you have the time and patience to help me learn?)
“Big Boy is house-trained. And, sometimes, he will also go to the door to let you know that he has to go outside.” (I try to be a good boy, too!)
“My favorite thing about Big Boy is his loving and playful personality. He will cuddle up with you as well as chase and play with you in the yard.” (Aww, thank you. I love you, too!)
Pyr-ready to trust and play, Big Boy
