The best things in life are sweet like me, Cookie! My foster mama says I’m such a loving girl, and I simply want to be by your side. I’ll stick to you like icing on a cookie! If you work from home, I’ll enjoy lounging on a soft dog bed while you type away at the computer. I’m okay when you leave home too as long as I have another doggy buddy or lots of chew bone toys. Just like it’s hard to choose a favorite cookie, I don’t know what I like better: bellyrubs, playing in the yard, or going on walks. Foster Mom tells me I’m already housetrained because being in the backyard is the milk to my Cookie! I’ll even bark at the door to let you know it’s time to go out. My foster dog brother and I have a fun time romping around together in the grass as well. My foster family has also noted what a curious nature I have. The wide world is as colorful and exciting to me as all those shiny cookie sprinkles! When we go on a walk, I’m interested in everyone and every dog I meet. At first, I can be a little shy, but encouraged by my human, I warm up quicker than a freshly baked cookie! With a sugar sweet personality and soft, fluffy coat, who wouldn’t want to adopt this Cookie? Think about bringing me home today!

Joyous greetings from me, Jameela! I’m just jumping with joy to meet you. Foster Mama says I’m a jovial pup, so I know we’ll have a jolly time playing in the backyard. And, we’ll have lots of fun taking little jaunts around the neighborhood too! The jewel in my crown, though, is my sweetness. All I want to do is snuggle and snuggle some more! Foster Mom also tells me I’ve got the best disposition because I’m a social pyr girl. In fact, I’m at my most jubilant when I’m around people. Humans are the peanut butter to my jelly! To meet more people, we can jet to the coffee shop or the park as riding in the car is my jam. I’ll probably spend the ride with my head on your shoulder. My foster family thinks I’d do well with other dogs too as long as they’re not overly dominant. I’ve got a more submissive personality, so I need a doggy sibling who will understand and accept me. As with all puppies, I’ll need adopters who will continue my potty-training, leash-training, and basic command training through positive reinforcement, please. Us pyr pups really jive with behavior being rewarded via treats and praise! Lots of love and bonding time will be a great jumpstart to my life as well. If you’re ready for the jam-packed, joyride of raising a baby pyr, then consider adopting me today. I can’t wait to join your family and give you all my love!

Backstreet’s back, alright, except this boy band is made out of pyr puppies! We don’t sing and dance (unless you count puppy jumps and giving pyr paw), but we tried to give our best performance for our photoshoot. Each of us pyr pups has two pictures! Hi, I’m Brian with the orange collar in one pic and laying in the grass in another. Hello, my name is Nick! I’m the one with the leash giving my best pyr stare in one photo and my best pyr smile in another. Meet me, Kevin! I’m all ears and jowls and 100% adorable. Pyr buds Howie and Aj, here! We took our pictures together just for fun because fun is our middle name. Our foster mamas say we all have very loving natures, and our sweetness makes us good companions with other dogs. The foster families have also been telling us that we’re close to being potty-trained. We’re smart boys! Of course, boy bands don’t become stars overnight. We will have to work at becoming our best selves, and we’ll need your help with basic command training and leash-training through positive reinforcement, please. The best way to a boy band’s heart is adoring fans, and positive reinforcement is kind of similar because it means doing training through praise and treats. Like the Backstreet Boys said, “As long as you love me” and train me and bond with me, we’ll all grow into the best pyr boys! And, our love for you will be “larger than life!”

Is there anything better than spending your summer nights by the bonfire and making smores? Well, there is one thing…spending time with a bundle of super cute puppies! In that first individual picture, you’ll see me, Toasty, and I promise I’ll keep you toasty warm with lots of pyr hugs. The second pic is of me, Cocoa. I’m the one with my tongue out because I want to go to my forever home so bad, I can almost taste it! Then, there’s me, Marshmallow, in the third photo with my pyr paw up for everyone to see. This piece of marshmallow fluff is ready to cuddle my way into your life! You can see in all our pictures that Foster Mama was trying to help us beat the summer heat with some water playtime. We’re curious pups, so we really explored the water! Foster Mom also tells us pyr girlies we’re as bouncy and playful as marshmallows. We’d have fun playing with kiddos or other dogs, for sure! If you spend some time with us puppers, you’ll see that we’re as soft and sweet as marshmallows too. We’ll snuggle close to you and make a smores sandwich! It takes time and effort to make the perfect Smores, and it takes time, effort, and a lot of love to raise a pyr pup too. We’ll need potty-training, leash-training, and basic command training which should only be done through positive reinforcement. Positive reinforcement means training us through praise and treats, please! Smores are the perfect way to celebrate summer, and Smores puppies are even better. Consider adopting one of us today!

How do you do, Pyrenees Friends? I’m Duncan, and I’m doing just dandy because I am now a part of the dog-devoted GPRA family! My GPRA buds tell me I’m a slam dunk due to my many delightful qualities. Firstly, I am very dapper from my dashing coat to my deep soulful eyes. At least, that’s what I’ve been told! Secondly, I’m housetrained, so your dwelling will stay clean. Also, you could call me Duncan Dependable as you can count on me to be easy-going in any situation. I don’t react to other dogs or traffic at all. Another nickname of mine should be Duncan Debonair because I’m so darn charming! Every new person I meet is deemed a friend, and I am dazzled by all new friends since they show their Duncan dedication by giving me lots of pets. I live for attention! Being a laid-back dude is just who I am which means I’m a dream to walk on the leash too. My GPRA besties have noticed I’m a darling of cats as well, so I would fit in almost any home. For now, I’ll daydream of my doting family who will scoop me up and love me forever!

How’s it hanging, dude? I’m Moose California, and I’m ready to live my best laid-back Cali life with the perfect family for me! I’m a young pyr boy, so I still have zoomies and get stoked about anything and everything. In my new home, I’d love a doggy friend to play with. I live with doggo siblings now, and together we’re as golden as the Golden State…that’s California’s nickname! California is famous for its near perfect weather, and I’m nearly perfect too! On a walk, I do sometimes bark at other dogs and can be a puller, but I’m a youthful pyr dude. With love and training, I know I can become a better leash walker in no time. While I like walking and living with another dog, what really makes me feel like I’m California dreamin’ is people! I adore my humans, and I show them how much I care by being super affectionate and cuddly. I may have breezed in from California, but now Georgia is on my mind because I’m here and searching for my forever home!

Hello, Pyr Friends! Meet me, Fred! My GPRA family says my nickname could be Fabulous Fred because I’ve frankly mastered a lot of skills. I’m already housetrained which is fantastic, and I give you friendly bark or whine to let you know, “I need to go out, please!” Riding in the car is also something I’m very facile at doing. Because I enjoy hanging out with other dogs outside the home, we can totally hop in the car and head to the dog park! Or, we can go for a coffee run and grab a frappuccino. When we walk in the neighborhood, I’ll be known as Famous Fred because of how friendly I am to everyone I meet, including the kiddos. While I love seeing my fellow canines and children on leash, I prefer to be the only dog in the house, and I do best with a family who has teens or just adults. My GPRA friends will tell you that people are my favorite. Once you take me home, you’ll see what a sweet, cuddly, and happy boy I am! As a young pyr, I’m still full of that fresh pyr energy, and I’d enjoy a place to get out my zoomies. Also, because I’m a youthful male pyr, I’m still learning my leash manners although everyone says I’m pretty good on the leash. One of my most famed qualities is my keen intelligence! I know all the fundamental commands: sit, down, and stay. I’ve even heard some people call me Fair Fred because of how beautiful I am, but all I really want is to be your Faithful Fred companion who will love you forever!

We’re Elsa and Perrin, and we’re a bonded pair which means we’re best buds for life! Hi, I’m Elsa. I’ve heard that Elsa is the name of the elder sister in that famous Disney movie, and I’m an older sister too. Us big sisters like to be the boss, so no cats or small dogs, please. We really like to be the only two animals. Perrin is my rock, and he’s all I need. As the older sister, I also have to set a good example. One way I am a great role model is how calm and well-behaved I am in the home. I’m housetrained, of course, and I can be left home alone without any issues. Hello, I’m Perrin! My sister will tell you that I have enough energy for the two of us. My GPRA friends say I’m bouncy and love to play, so a yard to get out my zoomies would be wonderful! I do need a six-foot fence, though, because I could jump a shorter one. I’m a young pyr boy who is always up for an adventure, so make sure to keep me on leash before you open the front door because I might try to slip by you! Like my big sis says, I’m rock solid in all the ways that matter. As long as I have Elsa, I’m a good boy when you leave the home, and I’m housetrained too. We’re also rock steady when it comes to commands. Elsa and I know “sit” and “down” really well. Elsa, here, chiming in! Probably the best quality we share is how much we love our humans, including those little humans called children. We’re a friendly pair of pyrs to everyone we meet. Just look at how much we smile in all our pictures! If you’re hoping to brighten your day with two pyrs who will give you all the love you could ever want, think about adopting us today!

Greetings from Moose and Shadow, and we’re here to say we are each other’s shadows because we’re a bonded pair! Being bonded means where one goes, the other follows. Just look how cute and snuggly we are in one of our photos? We enjoy being our humans’ shadows too because we love attention! Foster Mom compliments us on our pyr-pawing. We’re trying to tell her how much we love her and asking her to give us more pets, please! And if you’re all out of pets, you can brush us because we love to be brushed. We’re pretty good at listening to and respecting our humans. We already know the commands: no, sit, off, and lay down, and we’re good on the leash! I’ve heard moose have big, strong teeth as well because they eat about 70 lbs of food a day. We’re not super food-motivated, but we do love chew toys. It is just so much fun to chomp on a chew bone! When we’re outside, we have the best time romping around the yard and having zoomies together. To keep us safe, we need a 6-foot fence because we’re big like moose and could jump a shorter fence. Being free to roam the house while you’re away from home is really important to us too as crates don’t work for us. As much as we enjoy playing, we equally enjoy being couch potatoes because that means relaxing inside with our humans. We get along great with other dogs too, so we would have a nice time hanging out with doggy siblings. Have you heard the expression two halves make a whole? Well, we’re two, sweet cuddly halves of a bonded pair, and we’ve got a whole lot of love to give to you!

I’m winking to let you in on a secret! I’m Willow, and I am an amazing pyr who can’t wait to meet you! While I’m not willowy, I’m a big pyr girl with good energy. In my new home, I need a canine friend who is a large dog like me to be my companion. I have so much fun with my pyr foster brother in the backyard. We love to play! There are so many cute pics of us together. I find cats to be winsome too if you happen to have a kitty cat in your home. After getting out my zoomies, I like to snuggle inside and be a big couch potato. Wherever my foster humans are, that’s where I want to be because I”m a velcro dog. I’ll even give my foster family hugs when they come home to say, “I miss you!” As I love my foster mama with my whole heart, I’m a good listener. She says that I am more love-motivated than food-motivated, so I’m eager to please. I’ve already learned “sit” and “off.” When I meet new people, I take a while to warm up, but once you win me over, I adore the attention. I even love to be brushed as it is a great time for us to bond! My foster mom also says that I walk well on the leash. True, sometimes, I pull towards an interesting smell, but what pyr doesn’t? Another way I’m wordly-wise is that I’m completely housetrained; I haven’t had an accident yet! My winning personality combined with having a doggy bff to hang with means I’m very well-behaved  when left home alone. My foster family tells me I like to bark as well, so let me go ahead and say, “Woof, woof, woof, woof” which means, “please take me home!”
