Hellos, everyone. Are you ready to fall in love with an incredibly gentle and easy-going boy who loves people? If yes, look no further because I am your boy! Like my best friend, Duke, who is also available for adoption, I lived a good life with another family. Still, I was surrendered due to my owner’s health issues. My previous owner really loved me, and I hope my future family does as well. Since Duke is a bit braggadocious, I hope you do not mind that I am as well. My owner had lots of great things to say about me, too!
“Howie loves children.” (Yes, I am easy-going, and kids are lots of fun!)
“Howie is good with other dogs.” (My best friend, Duke, is also up for adoption, so please consider adopting him, too. If you are looking for two dogs, we are your boys!)
“Howie knows commands such as sit, stay, come, off and down.” (Yes, I know the commands. Like most Pyrs, I might be a bit lazy remembering.)
“Howie loves car rides.” (This is one of my favorite things. If you know of drive-up windows that offer dog treats to their customers, then let’s be sure to make several stops.)
You see, there are lots of great things to love about me.
Oh, one more thing, you just need to know to never crate me because it is my biggest fear. Please just let me hang out in the house when you leave, and I promise to be a good boy. Your Pyr-fect companion, Howie

Hellos. Are you ready to play with the lovable and playful Duke?  I have lived a good life with another family but was surrendered due to my owner’s health issues. My previous owner adored me, and I hope my future family does as well. Not to be overly braggadocious, but here is what my previous owner says about me:
“Duke is great with kids of all ages.” (Yes, kids are the best!)
“Duke is good with other dogs.” (My best friend, Howie, is also up for adoption, so please consider adopting him, too.)
“Duke knows commands such as sit, stay, come, off and down.” (This is good stuff, right? I do my best to remember these commands and will only get better with consistency in reminding me.”
“Duke is gentle.” (Yes, I love all humans!)
“Duke is a leader.” (When I am with Howie, I am the one that gets us going.”)
Like many Pyrs, the one thing that makes me a bit nervous is fireworks. As long as I am with my humans, I’m ok. Just know that I may need your reassurance on fireworks nights.
So, that’s a bit about me. I cannot wait to learn all about you.
Your man, Duke

Hellos, I am the pretty and sweet Baby. Thanks to GPRA, I am no longer living alone outside, cold or hungry. For the first time, I believe that dreams can come true. You see, I came from absolute minimal living conditions, which included no shelter or loving home. Last weekend, Ms. Sabine gave my friend, Fred, and me a desperately needed grooming (I never knew such a thing existed). Lots of my old undercut was brushed out! Now, I feel and look fantastic.
GPRA’s trainer also had the following things to say about me.
“Baby is good on the leash.”
“Baby is an awesome dog.” (Thank you! I try to be a paw-awesome girl.)
All I need is time, patience, and lots of TLC. In return, every time I gaze into your eyes, you will see how grateful I am to live with you.
Still dreaming about my fur-ever home and family…Baby

Ghost is my name. Part of my story is sad, but the other part is good because of my guardian angel. Thanks to the watchful eyes of my guardian angel who lived next door, I got food and water where I lived tied up in a plastic shed. After multiple attempts, my guardian angel also convinced my neglectful owner to surrender me. I hope every neglected dog has someone who will never give up on them. Without the kindness and persistence of my guardian angel and GPRA, I would never have had a chance at a good life. (Thank you, guardian angel and GPRA!) Here are a few comments that my guardian angel shared about me. “Ghost is a sweet and cuddly dog.  Sadly, he was tied up in a backyard shed.” (Yes, after living tied up, I have still kept my Pyr heart.) “Ghost is friendly, a bit shy, playful, and easy-going.” (Yes, everything is new to me. All I really need is someone who will invest the time to increase my trust and exposure to new things.)  I cannot wait to update you on all that I am learning. Looking forward to car rides, walks in the park, watching a movie together, celebrating birthdays, and everything else a family does with their Great Pyrenees.

Forever grateful and Pyr-excited about a new life,

Ghost

Thor here, again, to give you an update on how I am doing with my foster family. My foster mom has given GPRA a five-star report on me. Here are a few glowing comments.
Thor is “shy, gentle, outgoing, a protector, independent, a cuddler, talker, curious, and smart.” (Yep, this is me!)
“If someone wants calm, Thor is extremely mellow.”
“Thor loves to be loved.” (I am a sweet boy!)
“Thor did not go to any obedience training. We are introducing Thor to commands such as sit, stay, down, and come.” (I am a fast learner.)
“Thor was happy to meet our cat. Thor wags his tail and is glad to have another furball in the house.”
“Thor loves my dog walker and others, so he is good with other people.” (Of course, I love people, I am a Pyr!)
“Thor respects fences. He likes to be outside.” (Yes, I love just being outside watching the day pass by.)
“Thor is fine to leave alone in the house. Upon my return, I find him curled up sleeping in the same spot.” (I am dozing but still keeping track of everything.)
“Thor is a beautiful, quintessential Great Pyrenees.” (Thank you!)

So, that’s my report. I am so thankful to GPRA and my foster family for helping me. Are you ready to adopt me? Your sweet, almighty, and loving Thor

Max here to let y’all know that I am a survivor and have kept my Pyr smile, playfulness, and friendliness despite living through tough and hungry days. Long story short, I was pulled with other dogs from a neglect situation by Animal Control, and GPRA came to my rescue.  With time, I am hopeful that my tendencies to guard my bowl will fade away as I begin to trust that I will get more than enough food. However, I love other dogs and cats as we became good friends during our difficult days. After my hind leg was run over, it is a bit stiff, which only means that I may need a little help getting in and out of the vehicle, but so do most Pyrs.  If you are my forever, I will follow you all over the place, join you on car rides, and let you know every day how grateful I am to be in your loving, kind, and trusting care.

Looking forward to endless hugs, a cozy bed, and happier days… Max

Hi, I’m Sugar Bonbon. I’ve just arrived from a shelter. People say I am really sweet and gentle. I show no aggression toward other dogs and was very quiet in my kennel at the shelter. I’m happy to be able to find a new home! More info coming soon…

I am the sweet and lovely Galaxy.  My dainty and ladylike demeanor charms everyone. After saying goodbye to my puppies and their daddy, adjusting to life on my own has been stressful, and I do not like being alone very long. It will help me if my human is home with me. Having another fur-sibling may also help.
Everyone, including GPRA’s trainer, says that I am an incredibly kind and loving girl. All I need is someone to build up my Pyr confidence and give me as much love and affection as possible.  A very secure fenced-in backyard will provide me with essential exercise. Still, while I am there, I will need close supervision as I may try to escape.  With time, I am sure that my backyard will be the only home for me.
Other Pyrs have told me all about the puppuccinos at Starbucks. Yes, I know dogs should not have sugar, but I hope my new family might consider treating me every once in a while during our car rides together. Trust me, you are getting a total sweetheart in me. All I need is careful supervision, lots of love, and reassurance that everything will be just fine.
Affectionately yours, Galaxy

Hi, I am the handsome Pyr boy, Alan, looking for my furever home. Thankfully, GPRA heard about me through a county shelter. Now, I’m under the care of this fabulous Rescue group. It’s a bit scary to be in new surroundings, but I am taking it in stride. Some humans say I am a bit timid, but this is understandable. No worries, my Pyr confidence will return when I feel comfortable again. There are three things I love, humans, outside time, and affection. I may be a little stubborn in typical Pyr fashion at times (this is a breed characteristic that humans adore about Pyrs), so I am just preparing you now.

Looking forward to pets, hugs and furever with my family… – Alan
