Hi! I’m Stacey! Here is what I know about myself so far: I walk great on a leash, no pulling; can easily be taken to public places; I like car rides and love playing with other dogs. I’m absolutely great with cats and do not mind my foster mom’s bunnies or chickens. I LOOOOOOVE to be pet and cuddled. I like being brushed and groomed, can be touched everywhere. My curly fur is growing back nicely, I had lost a lot after having puppies (in June) due to the hormonal changes in my body. I’m very friendly with new people.
I would benefit from a experienced pyr owner who will teach me that I don’t have to guard my food, the habit I kept from my stray days. I was found as a stray on the run with my two 8ish months old puppies and was pregnant again. I felt like I needed to protect my food. I will do better in a family with older kids. I have so much love to give. Please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below.

Any chance you need a Great Pyrenees? Well, let me rephrase, everyone NEEDS a Pyr, I should ask if you need me?  Sometimes forever is shorter than a Pyr thinks it will be. Life changed for this 2.5-year-old, 75 lb. girl when unexpected things happened for my GPRA mom and dad. There’s no deep drama or anger, it’s just life. Tearfully, they’re trusting GPRA to find me a new, safe home. According to mom, I’m very sweet, very social, love and protect my people & property and am great with other dogs. I don’t love human puppies (I think they’re called “babies”) and like so many dogs, thunder and lightning scare me. Oh, and this is kind of silly, but I don’t like being in the rain when it’s dark. Daylight rain is OK, I mean, it’s wet but not upsetting. If you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below, the GPRA adoption team will tell you about my hips. The car accident is long gone but I need a family who can adjust to my physical abilities the same way I am.

I came into GPRA with a friend where we both lived outside together on a farm our whole life but after 6 weeks my foster mom has realized we aren’t bonded.  Once I got comfortable at our new home, I decided I didn’t like to share my inside space with him. I do great with him outside, but mom says I probably need to be the only dog. I just can’t help it. I like all the love and attention, and I will be your best loyal companion keeping you safe. That is until a thunderstorm rolls along and you need to protect me. As long as you’re with me during storms, I am great.  I also get along with cats and children and love, love, love my humans. I love those things called dog beds, too, and I am a pro at using a dog door.  I haven’t had any accidents in the house, and I don’t care if my humans take food, my food bowl, or my treats away from me. Since I am overall the most pyrfect Pyr who loves to snuggle with you and go to sleep with my head tucked in close, please consider me your personal snuggle dog if you think I fit your life.

My older sister, Calley, and I need new homes because our beloved owner is, well, just too old to manage our farm, goats, and us. I’m only 8 years old, and 88 lbs. and Calley is 10 years old, and 120 lbs. Actually, we might need help learning how to be inside dogs since we’ve been guarding goats and sleeping in the barn with them. We are friendly with children, uninterested in cats, unsure of other dogs, and curious about new people. There is one difference between us, I still jump fences. I don’t do math so can’t say how tall these fences are but just wanted to be honest with you.

Hi, I’m Millie and after my tough start in life, I finally have good news to share. I’m two-years old, weigh 80 lbs. and almost housetrained! I’m also fine home alone for five or six hours, IF you can pull yourself away from me, that is. Now, if you can’t bear leaving my sweet face, no problem: I love care rides. And being brushed. I usually sleep by the front door because it’s the best way to protect my family. Hopefully my forever family will love me through my startle reflex and fading aggression. Yes, my past is part of my present behavior but if you’re dog smart and patient and calm and firm and loving, I bet we can make a pyrfect future. Please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below. After all, isn’t rescue dog’s love worth a few clicks or taps?

You’d think maybe I play basketball, or at least fetch, based on my name but nope, not this 1-year-old, 104 lb. boy! I’m all about sleeping from 10:00 pm to 7:00 am, leash walks, and practicing my sit, lay down, and place commands.  Fully house-trained, lazy and laid back describe me well. I’m super playful and don’t need crating. In fact, you can trust me at home alone for six or eight hours. Speaking of trust, I do not like people or animals around my food. Can’t say why or how it happened but I simply do not trust them to leave enough for me. The humans call it “resource guarding”, I call it protecting my food. Maybe a home with older kids will be good since that sometimes mean a quieter, less chaotic environment? Or maybe you can at least please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below to talk with the GPRA folks about me? We all have our challenges, I’ll love you for yours if you love me for (and help me fix) mine.

You’re not seeing double; I have been here before. I’m 4-year-old, 85 lb. returning GPRA alumna Luna. My dad’s major life change has him traveling so much, it feels like all the time. Thankfully, he asked GPRA to find me a new home with a family who will always be around to rub my ears, hug me, and of course hand out many, many treats. So far, I have been an only dog and had a really quiet life with a quiet human. I need to work on some of my skills at home. I love to chase dogs passing by my window and sometimes I’m a little nervous with people visiting my house. Are they friends? Do I protect my human? I get so confused. With a little help, I know that I can figure it all all. I love a nice soft sofa to snuggle up on and I’m very happy when my people are home. I am ready for my own forever home and to start practicing all of those house skills so please email info@greatpyratlanta.com or click either “Contact Us” or “Apply to Adopt” below to let them know you are ready to be my fur-ever.

Moving day is approaching and I still need a destination. Hopefully it’ll be someplace I can stay a long time since I’m only 13 months old and where there’s a lot of treats because I’m only 75 lbs.  If we were on Zoom right now, you could ask me questions but since this is a one-way screen, here are my answers to questions you might ask: yes, I’m good with kids, dogs, and cats (until they approach my food); I’m potty trained to puppy pads and the back yard; and I only pull on the leash when I’m excited about something. Oh, and I talk back to thunder. Well, guess we would’ve had a short Zoom call after all since I just ran out of stuff to talk about. Guess this is a good time to ask you to please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below so we can keep the conversation going.

Charleston, SC is a great city, if you’re Great Pyrenees who loves city activity and sounds. Turns out this 3-year-old, 106 lb. girl prefers quiet routines and being the center of the family. That’s a nice way of saying I’m an adults-only dog; just grown-up humans and me, please. My family has tried so lovingly and longingly to help me adjust to urban living, it’s not for me. Thankfully they’re selfless people and asked GPRA for help. I’m a sweet, healthy, beautiful, goofy, Pyr who loves being pet and groomed. My activity level is pretty low in general but if you see me stomp my paw, then I’m ready to play. If you need to do errands, I’m an excellent car companion. However, I’m good home alone (up to six hours!), too. I won’t get on the furniture and I’m housetrained. And I’m smart, too; I know sit, paw, stay, lay down, and heel. Of course, I have what people call “areas for improvement”. For instance, I’m a bit insecure, which in dogs sometimes mean easily frightened, even by silly things like printers! Cars passing me on the street are scary, thunderstorms are scary, and even dogs or people I don’t know can be scary. If you’re getting the sense that I’m a work in progress with way more rewards than challenges, you might be The One. Please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below. The GRPA folks will tell you where to buy my favorite treat so you can bring it with you when we meet!

What does a 1-year-old, 67 lb. sweet puppy do with all her energy? Well, if I lived with people who had a yard and time to play with me, I’d probably run from corner to corner then rollover for tummy rubs. If I had dog siblings (or even dog friends), I’d pretend wrestle and grab their tails. Or, if I had a cat, I’d play chase and always let Kitty win. I lived in a small apartment with a very busy parent and I had too much pent-up puppy energy.  I’m housetrained and know basic commands. I do need help learning not to guard my food, water and toys. If you have the love, patience, and energy it takes to love and help me grow, I will be the most amazing Pyr ever. I just need the right place and owner to blossom.
