Good day! I’m your steadfast, reliable, and gentle giant, Fred.

I was rescued with my sister from an abusive and bad situation. I will spare you the details, but our living conditions were miserable.

Thankfully, GPRA came to our rescue. My sister already found her family, and I’m Pyr-happy for her. The last step in my journey to fur-ever is finding my family. Lucky for me, I have been with an incredible foster home, so I am now ready for my very own humans, home, and comfy dog bed.

Here are a few things that my foster family has learned about me.
“Fred is the best. He is laid-back, cautious, fairly quiet, and very easy-going. Fred’s trust and confidence grow each day.” (Yes, my Pyr-confidence is returning.)

“Fred is house-trained. He will stand by the door or by his humans when he needs to go outside.” (Yes, I am learning good house manners from my foster parents!)

“Fred is very docile and the sweetest boy. His personality will continue to blossom.” (Yes, it takes time to trust when other humans have mistreated you, but I’m starting to believe that everything is going to be okay.)

“Thunder scares Fred.” (Yes, I do not like those loud noises. As long as I have a safe hideaway, I will be just fine.)

“For being mistreated, it has been heartwarming to see Fred’s personality begin to shine through. He loves attention. Lots of petting and scratching will help to build his trust.” (Thank you for helping me on my way!)

Pyrly grateful, Fred

Happy Day, everyone! If you are a Star Wars fan, you will fall in love with big, irresistible me because my name is Chewbacca! Cool name, right?

I have a wonderful family to thank for saving me from a horrible place. Since they already had four dogs, they knew GPRA was my best chance at a good life.

At first, everyone thought that I was part Golden Retriever because my coat was reddish-orange. Nope, I’m full Pyr! My beautiful coat had absorbed lots of Georgia clay, so GPRA put me through the magical grooming transformation, which included not one but three baths. Gosh, it felt so good to get all that dirt out of my coat that I fell sound asleep after my Spa Day! Now, I don’t even recognize myself. I am quite the stunning boy if I say so myself. (Yes, that’s my Pyr confidence and pride talking.)

Everyone says I am a super sweet and chill boy, so come meet me soon!

May the Pyr force be with you, Chewbacca

Good day to you. I’m Grady, and who might you be?

What does a loving, gentle giant like me do when my caretaker gets sick and cannot care for me anymore? The sad truth is that Pyrs like me end up in shelters, and that’s where life ends, but not for this boy.

Lucky me, rescue organizations like GPRA are Pyrs’ saviors and give dogs like me another chance at living out our years feeling loved. You understand, right? Doesn’t everyone want to feel loved? Now, I need some super special humans to look at my picture and say, “that’s our boy!”

Here are a few things to consider as you decide which gentle giant you want to adopt.

Pyrs like me are mellow and very calm. You will still see lots of play in me, and with the right balance of shorter walks and outside time, you will find me dozing the day away. No worries, I will also be guarding the homefront and let you know if something needs your attention. Don’t you want to know when a butterfly flies by the window? Just kidding, but I will let you know when the UPS truck arrives.

One unique thing about me is that I have learned to take my human’s hand and lead them to the door when I want to go outside. I’m gentle, well-mannered, and respectful, especially of my humans.

So, that’s a bit about me. As my wonderful foster family learns all about me, I will update you. Until then, thank you for taking the time to read my story, and maybe we will meet very soon!

Pyrly yours, Grady

Hi, is it my turn to introduce myself? Ok, here goes, I am Prince. My littermates, Tank, and Blue are also available for adoption. I feel bad for you because I know it will be challenging to pick only one of us. Just know, you can choose all three of us, if you have a hard time. Just kidding, I know three of us together might be a lot to handle.

A wonderful family adopted our mama, Bells, and our older half-brother. A few weeks after the adoption, they learned that mama was pregnant, and we were on the way. (Surprise!)

Our mama is a GPRA rescue, full Great Pyrenees, and our dad is a German Shepherd (we were DNA tested)! So, this means that we are Germanees, the offspring of a German Shepherd and a Great Pyrenees.

Like every puppy, I have a short checklist of things that will help me grow up to be the very best Germanees I can be, which includes: lots of love, lots of patience, lots of training, lots of consistency, lots of exercise, and lots of time with our favorite humans.

Your cutie boy, Prince

Hellos! I am Peter Piper.

Everyone says that I am the boy that captures your heart at hello!

My backstory is a bit sad. You see, I ended up in a shelter emaciated and in rough shape. The caring Shelter staff knew I was extra special and nurtured me back to health. They then contacted GPRA to say that I was ready to be adopted. (Saying goodbye to them was hard, but I will be forever thankful for the care and love they gave me.)

GPRA’s team of fabulous volunteers also sees how special I am. Here is what they think about me.
“Peter Piper is an absolute love ❤️ bug!” (I even got a heart with that comment. Thank you!)

“Peter Piper is such a good boy. He listens beautifully and sits to be collared and leashed for walks.”

“I love chasing balls with Peter Piper. He is so much fun!” (Yes, I am a fun boy! Will you play with me, too?)

“This boy wants to be loved and pet all the time. I enjoy just being with him.” (Aww, thank you. I love being with loving humans, too!)

GPRA thinks that a knowledgeable Pyr owner will be a great fit for me.

Your Pyr-awesome boy, Peter Piper

Hello. I am the unforgettable Kenny because I am the sweetest and gentlest Pyr boy you will ever meet. I came to GPRA via a shelter.

Thankfully, GPRA is getting me long overdue vet, medical and grooming care. Regarding medical care, I will be undergoing bi-lateral ACL surgeries (officially known as Tplo surgery) under GPRA’s medical experts’ excellent supervision. I am one lucky boy to have landed with GPRA to get these life-changing surgeries because I have been in pain for a very long time. Maybe this is why I ended up in a shelter.

This means that I need the most fabulous foster or adopter to support me throughout the recovery process. My activity level will be entirely restricted. A room with a nonslip floor (carpet remnants are perfect) and gentle assistance getting outside for potty breaks will be all I need for several weeks. Have faith; after my surgeries, I will be ready to enjoy life to its fullest again with many good years ahead.

Guess what? I also got the magic grooming transformation, which means someone spent several hours brushing and bathing me to get rid of the endless amounts of dirt and mats. I cannot even recognize myself.  Even better, my skin and coat feel so good now.

Even though my life has not been the happiest, I am a very docile and loving boy and will be a loyal companion to some lucky human out there. If you are my lucky human who will support me on a journey of healing and health, I promise to be your devoted guardian.

Your Pyrly loyal, Kenny

Hellos. I am Diego, and who might you be?  I am one of the dogs that GPRA rescued from a  hoarding and neglect case in Virginia. Based on where I came from, you will understand that I am still frightened and uncertain of my surroundings.

You may also know that I am somewhat famous in the local community due to escaping from my kennel.  (I dis-a-pyred! Ok, I know it was not funny for the humans who were very worried about me, and I am sorry.)  Yep, I am Pyr smart and an escape artist – so I have been told. Thankfully, many dog-loving humans were involved in my safe return. (Thank you!)
