Happy New Year, everyone! I am Puma. Now with the best Rescue family (GPRA) and in a loving foster home, I trust these good humans to find my happily ever after.
Here is what GPRA knows about me.
“Puma is great with kids and people. She is friendly, active, playful, and an easy-going family dog.
“A fenced-in yard and lots of walks will be great for Puma as she is a healthy, fit and active young dog.”
“Puma’s best friend was an outside cat that she often curled up beside for naps.” (Yes, I miss my cat friend.)
As GPRA learns more about me, I will update you.
Time to ring in the New Year together!
Your Pyrly beautiful girl, Puma

Hellos. I am Nellie. Although timid, GPRA is helping me return to Great Pyrenees status. Unfortunately, since I am pretty scared of men, GPRA thinks I was abused or hurt at some point in my past life. Yes, I know it’s sad, but I’m doing my best to start the next chapter. Lucky for me, GPRA’s trainer is working with me and building my confidence and trust. Those yummy treats and lots of patience will help me open my Pyr heart again.
Here are a few things that GPRA’s volunteers know about me.
“Nellie is a sweet and curly angel. Her confidence grows each day!”
“Nellie is a little shy at first but warms up when she gets to know you. She is a curly-haired beauty and super sweet!”
“She is making great strides and even let me clean out her ears.”
“Nellie had the best time romping around the play yard with Festus. Both dogs enjoyed running back and forth together along the fence. (Yep, having a play buddy is fantastic and gives me a sense of security, too!)
So, that’s a bit of me. As my Pyr-confidence and happiness increase, I will keep you updated on my progress.
Pyrly yours, Nellie

Hey, y’all! I am Gus. Thanks to my BEST-ever foster mom, who has taught me so much, my Pyr confidence and trust are back! My foster mom also says that I am growing up, and she is very proud of me!
GPRA knows that I will continue to blossom with an experienced Great Pyrenees owner. It will take a consistent, gentle, and confident approach that includes lots of positive reinforcement to help me continue learning. If you tell me I’m a ‘very good boy” and pet me a lot, I will continue to make you proud.
Here is what my foster mom knows about me.
“Gus is a happy, playful little smurf. He can be shy at first with new people. However, his happy boy and clownish personality shine through when Gus trusts you and is comfortable with his surroundings. He is also very affectionate with well-trusted humans and loves being with you.”
“As a young Pyr, Gus enjoys a decent amount of activity. He is a fantastic walker and loves to go for 20-40 minutes walks several times each day.”
“Gus needs his own backyard – a place where he can run, dance around with toys, and be a playful and goofy boy. Once Gus gets out his zoomies, he is calm in the house and settles in for the day.”
“Gus communicates when he needs to go “Out.” For example, he will go to the patio door and paw it. Also, if he has an urgent need at night, he will put his front paws up on the bed and lick you until you wake up.” (Sorry to wake you, but when I gotta go, you gotta get me outside.)
“Gus has really blossomed into a great companion and will make a wonderful buddy for someone who will continue investing the time to build a strong bond with Gus.”
“Gus loves the 150 lb, 13-month-old Saint Bernard down the street. When they see each other, they know shenanigans are about to go down. So they both wiggle in excitement and get ready to test our patience with the games.”
“Gus is also a shameless lover of belly rubs; once he knows you well, he will flop down with all four paws in the air. Then, he will wait until you take the bait and rub his belly.” (Yep, I know how to play the belly rub game!)
GPRA recommends that my future home not have younger children.
Pyr-ready to celebrate the holidays with my new family!
Your loving, playful, and goofy Pyr boy, Gus

Good day wishes to everyone! I’m the affectionate and adoring Snowflake Rose. Unfortunately, even though caring humans made multiple attempts to get my owner to surrender me, I had to live a life filled with neglect. But, I never gave up hope, and through it all, I kept my loving Pyr heart!
Here are a few things that my foster family has learned about me.
“Snowflake Rose is by far the most loveable and attention-seeking Pyr we have ever had. She adores affection from both humans and animals (even cats)!” (Yes, sadly, I am making up for living an isolated, neglected, and penned-up life. But, not anymore, thanks to GPRA!)
“Snowflake Rose knows commands such as ‘sit, ‘come,’ ‘down,’ and ‘no.’ “
“The minute you touch or pet Snowflake Rose, she will close her eyes and Pyr paw you to continue. She very much loves companionship and physical touch from her humans. We have never encountered a more gentle dog than Snowflake Rose.”
“From the first day with us, Snowflake Rose is making great progress learning house manners and trusting her surroundings. But, when she gets unsure of new things, she gives us a low bark. It’s as if she is seeking our help and telling us she is scared. So, we take things slowly with Snowflake Rose.”
“Snowflake Rose loves attention so much that she kept our master gardener neighbors company all day as they worked on our shared property line. She moved with them as they worked down the line trimming back the landscaping, no barking, but instead, she was very content and curious watching them work throughout the day. She was definitely in her element, and her Pyr-happiness showed.” (Yes, for the first time, I am finally living and only now know what love, kindness, and happiness feel like.)
Pyrly grateful forever, Snowflake Rose ❄️ 🌹
