Aloha! Charmingly named after a lively Disney character, my name is Lilo. Did you know that the Lilo means “generous one?” Yes, I have a generous Pyr-heart!
I am wishing for an exceptional and loving home and owner. You see, I am almost deaf. Do not worry about me, though, because I am a very independent Pyr. Here is what GPRA knows about me.
“Lilo will do best in a home where she can bond with her humans. Owners who work from home or are retired will be a great fit for her. She will be a wonderful emotional support dog, too.” (I will be your constant and faithful companion.)
“Lilo will play with other dogs but prefers to be on her own after playtime is over. If there is another dog in her home, an older and/or laid back dog will be her preference.” (What can I say, this girl likes quiet time, too, which is prime time for cuddles.)
Your Pyrly loving girl, Lilo
Sorry for the blurry picture, more pictures coming soon.

Hi! I am Big Boy! Well, I am not a big boy yet, but I’m working on it. As a young, neglected, and abandoned young Pyr, the early months of my life were not good. Sadly, my family left me behind when they moved, which has me wondering why they even got me in the first place. However, that’s enough about my past. It’s time to turn the page and start again. The good news is that I am learning that humans can be kind and loving, and I am trusting and settling into my foster home very quickly.
Here’s what GPRA knows about me:
“Big Boy is smart, energetic, and playful. He has a lot of puppy energy in him.”
“It was sad to see him so terrified when his foster humans picked him up. But, after hearing kind and encouraging words, Big Boy was ready to trust and engage.” (I have learned not to trust things, but my foster humans were so kind to me that I could not help but feel safe and secure!)
“Big Boy will benefit from continued leash work as he is still learning. He is also learning the ‘shake’ command and knows the ‘sit’ and ‘no’ commands.” (Yep, I’m just a youngster, do you have the time and patience to help me learn?)
“Big Boy is house-trained. And, sometimes, he will also go to the door to let you know that he has to go outside.” (I try to be a good boy, too!)
“My favorite thing about Big Boy is his loving and playful personality. He will cuddle up with you as well as chase and play with you in the yard.” (Aww, thank you. I love you, too!)
Pyr-ready to trust and play, Big Boy

Greetings to all! I am Pyrie. As a 14-year-old loved Pyr, my recent transition from the very best home where I lived for the past nine years to GPRA has been quite sad. You see, my devoted and loving owners can no longer care for me due to serious health issues. So, saying goodbye was sorrowful. And, as a dog-loving human, I know you understand, right?
Now, GPRA is helping me find another home where I can live out my golden years. (Thank you, GPRA, for being there for me.)
I’m a very easy keeper, and you will barely notice me around as I will curl up and doze the days away. My previous owners describe me as friendly, quiet, playful (yep, still have fun in me), obedient (I’m a faithful guardian), and easy-going.
Do you have a little room in your heart and home for me? If yes, I will be grateful.
Pyrly yours, Pyrie ♥️

Daisy Darling is my name, and you will not find a sweeter, gentler giant than me.

What’s a low-energy girl to do when all she has known is to be home alone for long hours? Yep, sleep! Therefore, very mellow me will benefit from many short walks to get me stronger and help me drop a few pounds.
Here are other things that my foster family knows about me.
“Daisy Darling is a lovely girl and is great with people and other dogs.”

“Daisy Darling has terrific leash manners. She meanders along but loves to go on walks.”

“Daisy Darling is house-trained. One night she woke me up to let me know she had to go outside. She is such a good girl.” (I try to be a good girl. Thank you for getting up and taking me outside.)

“My younger dog jumped on Daisy Darling when she was sleeping, and it startled Daisy. Daisy let my dog know that she was not happy with that behavior by barking at her. Very young children need to know to leave her alone while she is sleeping.” (I am a gentle giant and like naps without interruption or someone or something jumping on me. You understand, right?)

“We call Daisy a turn-key Pyr because she is pyr-fect. She has excellent manners, takes treats gently, is house-trained, and loves almost everyone and everything (except cats).”

“Daisy adores children. She loves going to the bus stop where all of the children fawn over her.” (The best hours of the day are bus drop-off and pickup. Can I go to school with the younger humans?)

“Daisy will do very well with future owners who have a low-key lifestyle – possibly a retired couple. And, if grandkids come to visit, she will soak up the attention.”

“Daisy Darling has perfected the Pyr paw and will Pyr paw you for more pets.” (My human sister pets me a lot, and I cannot get enough of her love and affection.)

“Daisy Darling is the easiest foster that I have ever had. She is also the sweetest!” (Aww, thank you!)

Your Pyrly darling girl, Daisy Darling

Happy day wishes to everyone! I’m Sasha!

Hard to believe a beautiful, fun, and full-of-life Pyr needs a do-over already, right? Well, I do! With Pyrs like me, our learning curve can be a bit steeper. Just keep in mind that I am still a youngster that needs consistent guidance to continue learning good leash and house manners. My progress to date has included learning commands such as heel, sit, come, down, crate-up and place.

Belly rubs are one of my favorite things. I’m also house-trained, which is top on your list, right?

For whatever reason, I really gravitate toward trusting male humans. So, if you are one of them and single, I am your girl.

GPRA recommends a knowledgeable Pyr owner in a one-adult home and a fenced-in backyard for me. They also think it will be best if I’m the only dog of the house. With time, patience and consistency, I will get better at not needing to resource-guard my favorite humans. If you are willing to give me a chance, I will continue working hard to be my best Pyr-self.

Your still learning and Pyr-fun girl, Sasha

Hi, there! I am the magnificent Buddha boy! I think you will agree that it’s hard to accept that my previous humans sent me to a shelter because they moved. Yes, a shelter! Why would humans do this to me? I’m just a loveable and fun young Pyr eager to learn everything possible to be the very best-mannered and faithful companion! Are you ready and willing to invest the patience, time, and training to help me? If yes, then I am your boy!
Here is what GPRA’s volunteer walkers know about me.
“Buddha is sweet, adorable, and playful! He can be a spitfire and full of energy.” (Of course, I am a bit rambunctious, I’m a young and fun boy!)
“Budda will be awesome with a dedicated owner who will put in the time to train him. He shows great adoration for some of GPRA’s walkers and will be a wonderful buddy.” (If you want to be my buddy, I’ll be yours!)
“Buddha is such a smart, friendly, and affectionate boy.” (I try to be a good boy, and I also have a lot to learn yet!)
“Buddha is very curious and friendly with the other dogs. He loves to entice other dogs into playing with him.” (Playtime is the best time!)
Pyr-ready for the best life, Buddha

Hi there! I am Bella White! Do you like my cute smile? Even though I had to say goodbye to my previous owner due to an illness, which was quite sad, GPRA tells me that a new life awaits and I can smile again.
Here is what my foster mom knows about me.
“Bella White is a sweetheart! She seems to have been quite sheltered and lacks exposure to everyday things. However, she is gaining confidence each day. Bella White will benefit from a patient, loving and understanding owner who will continue to introduce her to normal routines.”
“Bella White loves to be close to her humans, and she is a natural snuggler. She must have snuggled a lot with her previous owner.” (I have perfected quiet snuggle time.)
“When Bella White gets excited, you see her adorable toothy smile, and she will trot around wagging her tail in a circle. Bella White is a fun, lovey girl.”
“She can be a bit nervous on the leash due to lack of exposure and tries to bolt when startled. Bella White will need a patient owner who will continue to build her confidence.” (If you need a walking buddy, I’m your girl because GPRA’s vet recommends that I drop a few pounds. Did you notice my little pot belly? However, if you want to sneak me a few treats every once in a while, I promise not to tell anyone. Also, if I see a deer on walks, I can get a bit excited, so be prepared to work on my leash manners. Yes, this is my work in progress.)
“Bella White is house-trained and will go to the door when she needs to go outside.” (I’m a good girl!)
“Bella White will be an excellent companion to a retired owner or couple who do not have younger children or hyper young dogs.” (Previously, I lived a tranquil and calm life. It will take me time to get used to a busier home. No worries, I will figure things out.)
“Bella White’s favorite things are snuggles, chicken, a cozy place to hide when she gets scared, and a comfy bed.” (Don’t forget that I love to snuggle on the couch. Will you be my couch buddy?)
Pyrly yours, Bella White
