April showers bring May flowers, and one of those Spring flowers has already bloomed. It’s me, Misty Gigi! You can see my gorgeous pyr-ents, Moose and Shadow Gigi, who are available for adoption as well. My eyes are the blue of a misty morning, and I’ve been told eye color doesn’t set in until three to four months of age. You might even get misty-eyed over how adorable I am! One of my most marvelous qualities is how much I love people. Getting pets and snuggling close are two of my favorite ways to spend a rainy afternoon! And, of course, as a pyr puppy, a little mist won’t stop me from being playful. Romping around in a yard is a must-have on my daily schedule! One day, I’ll grow into a mesmerizing pyr lady, but don’t get lost in the mists of time yet because I’ve still got a lot of growing to do. Amidst all the hugs and zoomies, I’ll also need to do some training. Us baby pyrs need continued potty training, leash training, and basic command training all through positive reinforcement. Positive reinforcement means using only treats and praise to help me learn all these important life skills. I’ll tell you what I can see clearly through the mist. It’s my new family adopting me! Could it be you?

Hello, World! Did you know that clovers are lucky? I’m Harley Clover, and my foster mom says that my name matches me perfectly because of my happy-go-lucky personality! My foster family enjoys watching me explore the house and the outdoors because I have a very curious nature. I love to play with other dogs too, including my sister Lulu. We have the best time romping around together in the yard, so I know I’ll enjoy a doggy companion at home. With me, you’ll be rolling in clover because I’m great with people as well. Foster Mama tells me that I’m very friendly and outgoing! Sometimes, I get a little scared when I’m approached outside, but I quickly realize you’re a friend, especially when you’ve got a treat in your hand. I feel all wrapped in clover whenever I’m being fed treats! Being a treat-motivated pup should make training easy and fun. As I’m still a baby pyr, I’ll need to continue the potty-training and leash-training that I’m doing with my foster mama. Us pyrs prefer positive reinforcement training which means training with treats and praise, please. If you adopt me, you’ll thank your lucky stars because I’m such a sweet and loving girl!

Lucky Lulu, here! I’m lucky because of my name: Lulu Clover. My foster mom tells me that four-leaf clovers bring people luck.  And, you’ll be lucky to have me too because I’m a very sweet and loving girl! True, I can be a little like a wallflower at first when I meet new people, but with a gentle touch and a few delightful treats, I bloom into a cuddly pup. Belly rubs are my favorite! I’m the same way with new dogs too. When we’re introduced, I’m a bit stand-offish, but as soon as I realize we’re two leaves of the same clover, I’m all in! Just the other day, I had the best time playing with another pup, and I get along great with my sister, Harley Clover, of course. I’ll need training too because I’m still a baby pyr. Foster Mom is working on leash-training and potty-training with me, so my new family will have to continue teaching me these skills through positive reinforcement. Positive reinforcement means giving me treats and praise while I’m learning how to potty outside and how to walk on the leash. If there’s treats involved, I’m like a pig in clover which should make training me really easy! I know I’ll be the luckiest pyr in the world to go home with the right family for me. Could it be you?

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-a! My oh my, it’s a wonderful, puppy day! I’m Zippy, and I’m so excited to meet you. I’m a baby pyr pup who is ready to zip right into the life of the family who is perfect for me. My foster parents say that I truly am zippy. I move fast around the house, and I love to run in the yard. Because of my energy level, I’ll definitely need a fenced-in backyard to play in. I’m athletic too! I can easily zip, or jump, over furniture, so a six-foot fence will be best for me. When I’m inside the house, I have to get out my puppy energy too, so I need lots of sturdy chew toys, Kong toys stuffed with yummy snacks, and antler ears, please! As a puppy, I have such a zest for life that sometimes I get a little mouthy or jump up out of excitement, but those chew toys and chewy treats keep me occupied and redirect me. My foster family tells me, though, that their favorite thing about me is how much I love them. It makes me a good listener because I really want to please my humans. Even when I’m zigging and zagging in the grass, I always come when called. Foster Mom and Foster Dad taught me “sit” as well, and I’m learning “come” and “off.” Basically, it’s easy to get me to learn new commands through positive reinforcement because I’m treat-motivated and adore praise and attention! My fosters also complimented me on how smart I am. I am already house-trained, and Foster Mom takes me out frequently to reinforce my potty-training. Foster Mama put bells on the back door, so I paw them whenever I need to ask to go outside to potty. Leash-walking is another skill I’ve picked up. When we see other dogs in the neighborhood, my tail does a zingy wag left and right which means I think I’ll enjoy other dogs in the home. I’m also a good car rider, so I’m really ready to come home with you. If you have a zeal for pyr pups and you’re ready to put in the time and effort it takes to raise one, then consider adopting me today.

It’s a marshmallow world all the time when you’re with me! My name’s Marshmallow, and I’m as squishy and soft and cuddly as my name suggests! I’m also a young, pyr boy, so I’ve got some good bouncy energy. A good marshmallow always has a nice bounce! Like a marshmallow, though, I’m sweet no matter the situation, and you’ll see what I mean when we take a walk around the neighborhood. My GPRA friends love to compliment me on how well I walk on the leash and how excited I am to meet both other dogs and people. People are the chocolate square to my marshmallow because we go perfectly together! I adore attention, and I always want s’more…get it? Hehe! We all know that an over-toasted marshmallow can get a little sticky, and the only sticky situation I find myself in is when I’m crated or kenneled. It’s really not for me! I need a family who is okay with this piece of marshmallow fluff roaming around the house when they’re gone, or maybe we could try baby-gating off one room. As long as I have enough space to move around freely, I’ll float happily around like the marshmallowy cloud I am. One of the best, most marshmallow-iest things about me, however, is that I’m housetrained! Admit it, you’ve always wanted to know what it felt like to hug a marshmallow. Well, now, you can, so consider adopting me, today!

Big Mama, here! We all know mothers are a symbol of love and a source of calm, so my name fits me perfectly! All my GPRA friends say I’m an easy-going, young female pyr who has a lot of love in my big pyr heart for everyone I meet. I’m even friendly with the resident cat at the vet! Being great with people makes me an awesome walking companion, so you can feel good about taking me around the neighborhood. Taking me out into the yard is an activity I enjoy because I’m still learning to potty outside. Mommies are some of the smartest people on the planet, and since I’m intelligent like my namesake, I’ll learn the skill in no time! Moms can also be known for their make-up expertise, and my eyeliner is on point! Because I have excellent leash skills, we can show off my gorgeous, soulful eyes to your neighbors and friends. There’s nothing better to me than getting a cuddle, and I have very mom energy when it comes to cuddling which means I’m amazing at it! Would you please consider taking me home today? I’ll bring the best mom vibe of all to your home: love!

Hi-ya, Everybody! I’m Juniper, and my name means evergreen. That’s because I’m a youthful female who is ready to go to her forever home! Speaking of the evergreens, I’m learning how to potty outside, but as a smart young lady, I know I’ll pick it up quickly. There’s nothing more relaxing than watching the trees sway in the breeze, and my personality evokes the same feeling. My GPRA friends say I’m a calm and easy-going dog. Evergreen also can signify something that stays green and grows year round. One thing that is always true about me is how much I love people! I’m a friendly pyr who is happy to meet everybody, and my favorite activity is getting pets from my human friends. My amiable personality combined with my excellent leash skills will make me the new dog celebrity of the neighborhood. Consider taking me home today, and my love for you will be evergreen!

Aloha! My name is Kona, and while I don’t come from sunny Hawaii, I do have a Hawaiian name. It means “lady.” According to my foster mom, I’m definitely a little lady because she describes me as lovely! I’m little too because I’m just a baby girl pup which means I’ll need lots of love and training. Through praise and treats, which is positive reinforcement, I can learn how to potty outside and how to do basic commands. Right now, playing in the backyard is one of my favorite things to do, but cuddling is something I love just as much. Kona coffee is known for its sweet taste, after all, and Foster Mama says I’m the sweetest! If you’re ready to raise this pyr girlie into a pyr lady, then consider adopting me today.

Spring is in the air, and it’s already sprung up with four female pyr puppies! Our names are Jacey, Caroline, Adeline, and Celina. We’re only three months old, so we’ll need plenty of love, care, and training. Right now, we’re doing pretty well with going in and out of the house, so we’re learning how to be potty-trained. Our new family will definitely need to continue to work on potty-training with us, though. We’ll need basic command training too but only with positive reinforcement, please. Positive reinforcement means treats and praise to encourage us to learn things like tinkling outside and doing a “sit” command. As pyr pups, our playful natures are in full bloom, and we are having the best time romping around in our foster’s backyard! We’re a little shy at first, but we’ve blossomed under the tender, loving care of our foster mama. If you’re ready to put in the time and effort it takes to raise a pyr puppy, consider taking one of us home. We’ve definitely got a spring in our step, and we’re just waiting to leap into the arms of our new loving families!

It’s a beautiful day here in pyr world! Oh, hello, I’m Baxter! It’s so nice to meet you! Can you believe my name means “baker” ? My GPRA friends say that right now I’m like a little piece of dough that will be shaped and molded by the family who adopts me. Basically, I’m still a puppy who will need basic command training as well as potty training reinforced at my new home. Being a very young pyr, I get the zoomies! You know the feeling after you have your coffee and cake; you’re ready to run a mile. Well, a yard would be great for me to work off my energy too! Because I’m a playful and friendly pyr boy, I do great with other dogs. At my foster home, I hang out with all types of doggy friends, both big and small, all day, and we get along like cookies and milk! While I do have that pyr pup pep in my step, I’m actually very good on the leash. I even sleep through the night too! Like most pyrs, I have my bursts of energy, but I am also calm. While we’re waiting for the muffins to come out of the oven, you can brush me as I find it a very soothing activity. Of course, most importantly, I’m very good with people. You might even say I’m a sweetie pie because I love to snuggle. The real icing on the cake, though, would be if you adopted me today!
