Hi! My name is Sunny Timber! I’m only three months old and was returned to GPRA after my owner realized that a puppy is a big responsibility. Sadly, this is one of many reasons why so many dogs are in shelters. Puppies are a lifetime commitment. Without rescue groups like GPRA, I’d be in a shelter right now.

My mama is a GPRA rescue, full Great Pyrenees, and dad is a German Shepherd (I was DNA tested)! So, this means that I am Germanees, the offspring of a German Shepherd and a Great Pyrenees.

To help me grow up to be the very best Germanees, here is a short list of things I will need that includes: your commitment to me until we have to say goodbye many years from now, annual trips to the vet to keep me healthy, regular grooming, as well as lots of food, lots of love, lots of patience, lots of training, lots of consistency, lots of exercise, and lots of time with my favorite humans.

Oh, one more thing, I am described as a typical puppy – sweet, trusting, and easy-going (that’s the Pyr in me). You will be happy to know that I am off to a good start with learning how to walk on a leash and house training.

Are you ready to call me your own?
Your growing up fast boy, Sunny Timber

Hi, I am Socks. Sadly, I was abandoned and left behind due to a very distressing home circumstance. I will spare you the details.

Thankfully, a caring neighbor knew what was happening and stepped in to help rescue me. I still miss my human children, but GPRA tells me that there are lots of families out there looking for a friendly, loving, big, fluffy boy like me. It feels good to be hopeful again.

Although my guardian neighbor told GPRA that I am a charming and playful boy, my home life was quite turbulent. It will take time to decompress and trust. A loving and patient owner who will invest time in helping me feel safe and less anxious will get me on the right path. I will also benefit from dedicated time and training to learn good manners. It will be helpful to tether me on car rides until I can chill out more, but I promise to work hard to make you proud.

As GPRA learns more about me, I will update you.
Thank you for saving me and giving me hope for a fresh start, GPRA!

Pyr-eager for my happily-ever-after, Socks

PS You will understand why my name is Socks when you meet me!

Hi, I am the charming Beau Dandelion. I was a stray that walked up to someone’s home one day. Lucky for me, there was a nice lady who took me in and contacted those who could help me. Gosh, how lucky can a Pyr boy get to find just the right person after many homeless days!

Everyone says that I am super cute. (I prefer super handsome, but cute is ok, too.) They also say that I am sweet and gentle. (Well, thank you. I try.)

I’m now with an awesome foster family that will help me transition to my Pyr-ever home. (Can’t wait for the day to call a family and home my very own.)

Here are a few things that my foster family shared with GPRA about me.
“For only a ten-month-old Pyr, Beau is doing great in the house. He is shy, curious, submissive, and friendly.”

“Beau will chew, so we offer an approved alternative for chewing, which he needs as a growing boy.” (As you know, young dogs chew, but with patient owners who will redirect my chew needs, I will grow out of this phase.)

“If you stand next to him, Beau will roll over to have his tummy rubbed.” (Tummy rubs are fantastic!)

“Beau is still learning leash manners and how to walk on a leash.” (Yep, the leash thing is new, but I’m a quick learner.)

“Beau is house-trained.” (I told you I’m a quick learner.)

“Beau loves the backyard. He walks around and then returns on his own to the door to be let back inside.” (Having my very own backyard and home is much better than being a wandering and homeless stray.)

“We noticed that Beau is scared of fireworks.” (Yes, many fearless Pyrs are frightened by fireworks. By anticipating the timing of fireworks and getting me out and back inside before the loud noises occur, you will help ease my worries and keep me safe.)
Your easy-going and Pyr-gentle boy, Beau

Willow Walker here to say hello! Yep, I am also searching for a new Pyr-ever home like all the other fabulous Pyrs with GPRA. I am also a still learning youngster and grateful for all that my previous family taught me. They describe me as friendly, active, and playful.

Unfortunately, I could not stay with my family because I had littermate syndrome. Littermate syndrome is when two littermates do not get along. While this is not common, it does happen. My family decided it was best to separate my brother and me. I am sad, but I understand.

My family also worked with me on trading things I treasure for something better, and I am doing very well if I say so myself. The trading thing works better than just taking something away from me because it builds my trust.

What else can I share? Well, you will like knowing that I am housetrained and love car rides. So, if you are looking for a car buddy, I’m your girl. Just be sure to leave me home on hot Georgia days unless you plan to keep the AC constantly running. My favorite place is the backyard, which I call my Pyr-happy place.

Pyr-excited for a new start, Willow Walker

Hi, I am the sweet and timid Dixie. My foster family says that I am quiet and still unsure of my surroundings. The leash thing is terrifying to me, and I will pancake out. No worries, other Pyrs have come into GPRA doing the same thing. With time, patient owners help Pyrs like me to feel secure and build our trust. In no time, I will get the leash thing conquered! Until then, a secure, fenced-in backyard will be an excellent place for me to get daily exercise.

I’m great with other dogs, ignore the felines, and adore the smaller humans. I’m also getting the housetraining thing figured out and will go to the door to let my humans know it is time to take me out.

Brushing makes me very happy because I am not used to such loving care and attention. You see, my sister and I came from an awful situation. The love thing from humans is all very new to me, but I like it.

With time, you will see me blossom into a regal, confident, and happy Great Pyrenees. Are you ready to join me on my journey?
Pyrly grateful, Dixie

Hellos. I’m Bailey. Well, here I am. I have no idea why my family decided that I need to have a new home, and it’s indeed sad. However, I will Pyr-up and make the best of it.

So, here’s a bit about me. I’m your normal Great Pyrenees with my own uniqueness.

Some of my favorite things include being outside to enjoy the sights and sounds of all that is happening. If you have a fenced-in backyard, I will be Pyr-happy to have my own space.

If you have other cats or dogs, you will want to feed us separately and pick up our food bowls when all of us are done eating. This way, I will forget about my food bowl that I like to guard. Yes, I know I can improve in this area. Oh, and do not leave food on the counter unless you would like me to clean up the kitchen for you because I may counter surf. (What’s a Pyr to do when there’s food in front of us?)

Although I’m good on a leash and love walks when it’s cooler in the mornings and evenings, I will want to protect my humans from the occasional car or another dog. So, yes, be prepared. It is an area for improvement. However, this is common with Pyrs. With additional training and reinforcement, I will continue to improve.

The smaller humans are my absolute favorite. No surprise there, right? I love it when they love me because I just want to love them. You will get my Pyr paw if you stop petting me. If you have not received the Pyr paw, you are in for a treat! It’s a Pyr’s way of telling our humans to keep loving us.
Seeking a second chance at a Pyr-ever home, – Bailey
