Hi-ya, I’m Toast! You know what can keep you roasty-toasty warm this winter? Me! My name’s not Toast for nothing. I love to nestle in by my humans and get all the love and attention you can give me. My doggy brother is my cuddle buddy too. I need another dog to play with and sleep next to. After kids, a doggy companion is the best thing since sliced bread! This piece of Toast gets along with dogs both young and old, so I can fit in almost anywhere. When I don’t have my foster family to play with, I love to chew on my puppy teething bones and to play with my many toys. With toys and a fuzzy friend, I’m not destructive in the house. I’ll also be the toast of the town, or at least the house, because I’m so darn smart and trainable. Foster Mama says I listen really well, and I’ve already taught myself to go to the door to say, “I need to go potty outside, please!” I even learned how to go down the steps to the backyard in one day! If I ever have to potty really bad, I make sure to go on a pee pad too. Foster Mama says my listening skills make me as good and special as avocado toast! I don’t know what an avocado is, but I do know something else that makes me unique. I’m a pyr-mix puppy! My dad is a pyr, and my mom is a pyr-lab mix. Toast needs time to get crispy delicious, and I’ll need someone to take the time to continue my command, leash, and potty training. If I could propose a toast to you, I’d say take me home and help me become the toasti-est Toast I can be.

Hi, I’m Butter, and I’m told that butter makes everything better! I know I’ll do just that by coming home with you because I’m so loving. My foster mama says that all I want to do is snuggle and be loved by my humans. I love my doggy brother too. Having a playmate is like butter on toast; I gotta have it! Sleeping next to my dog brother just makes me feel so comfy and safe like a warm, buttery-soft hug. I will fit into almost any home because I get along with younger dogs, but I respect older dogs too. Kids are also fun to play with. When I’m not cuddling close with my brother or hanging out with the family, I enjoy playing with toys or chewing on puppy teething bones. As long as I have my toys to play with, I’m never destructive in the house. Foster Mama says I’m very smart and trainable, so you don’t have to butter me up to get me to do the right thing! I’m already using the pee pads on my own, and I go to the door to say, “Potty time!” and do my business outside. I even learned to go down the steps to the yard in just a day. My quick learning makes me one special puppy, and I’m unique in another way too. I’m a pyr-mix pup! My dad is a pyr, and my mom is a pyr-lab mix. Churning butter takes work, and while I’m a really good boy, I’ll need someone to continue my command training, leash training, and potty training. Don’t be butterfingers! Adopt me today and help me grow into the best Butter I can be.

Greetings, my pyr people! I’m Cotton B., and I’m just bursting with excitement to meet you! My coat is beautiful, but what makes me brilliant is I’m excellent on the leash. Foster Mama says I ignore other walkers and focus on our hiking path because walking is one of my favorite activities. Another beatific quality of mine is that I can be left home alone without being destructive. I am at my absolute best when I am listening to my foster mom! The “Sit” and “Leave it” commands are my bread and butter, and Foster Mama is teaching me “Drop It” and “Place.” I need someone to continue working on commands with me to keep me in tip-top shape! I’ve already learned the most basic of commands: my name. I come when I’m called, so you’ll always have my attention. The outdoors is where I really blossom, so I’ll need a home with a fenced-in backyard. I feel so calm in the fresh, billowing air. Speaking of being relaxed, the most blissful home for me would be a quiet household with older kids or no kids with predictable routines. I thrive when I know exactly what’s going on and exactly what I’m supposed to do. What can I say? I’m a pyr, and we love our procedures! The most special-est thing about me is that my family is my beloved, and I will love and protect them with my big, pyr heart. Will you take me home and help me settle in? I promise to cuddle you and keep you warm in this chilly weather!

Hello, darlings! I’m Maya, and I’m so happy to be at my GPRA foster home. I’m getting lots of love, and my foster mama says affection is the way to my heart. When you stop petting me, I give you pyr paw to say, “More pets, please!” Kids are my favorite type of humans to be with because they never stop giving me attention, but I love all my humans very much. I think that’s why I get nervous when my foster family leaves. I do well in the crate, though, and wait for them to return to me. I’m still a pup, so I need my new family to continue leash training and potty training with me. I want to be the very best young pyr-lady I can be! Will you take me home, so I can become a part of your family?

Winter Greetings, my pyr friends! Us pyrs sure love this chilly weather. My foster mama says I absolutely adore being outside in the cold and exploring the backyard. It’s fun to bark out there too! Classic pyr, am I right? I have some new foster doggy siblings, and I enjoy being around them as well. When Foster Mom wants me to come back inside, she calls my name, and I listen and go to her. See, I’m a good boy! Because I listen so well, I know I’ll be house-trained in no time. I’m almost there! In the house, I just want to be near my humans. Everyone who meets me talks about how sweet and affectionate I am. They even say I’m the epitome of the pyr’s nickname: The Gentle Giant. Gosh, I’m blushing! Being a gentle giant, I am very good with kids; I love those little critters. I can’t wait to come home with you, and guess what? I’m an excellent car rider, so I’ll jump right in!

I’m so excited to meet you, I can hardly bear it! It’s me, Bear Sawyer! I’m a sweet, baby bear who is a little shy, but I know I’ll warm up given time and lots of love. I warmed up to my GPRA friends pretty quickly! Real bears have a high IQ and are one of the most intelligent mammals. I’ve got a bear-like intelligence too because I know the commands: sit, stay, come, off, and down. I’m still a cub, though. Cub means puppy in bear language! Like all of us young pyrs, I need leash-training and potty-training. I still dig, chew, and am protective of home too. Positive reinforcement and slow introductions will help me grow into the pyr-fect adult! One thing I’m already good  at, though, is riding in the car. While some bears hibernate in the winter, this Bear is ready for a chilly car ride! I’m a happy, loving, and playful pyr pup who can’t wait to settle in for a long, cozy winter with you!

There has been a moose sighting! It’s me, Moose Sawyer! What makes me a great find is that I’m good with kids, other dogs, and cats. In the pyr biz, we call that the triple whammy! Did you know that a baby moose is called a calf? Well, I guess that makes me a calf because I’m still a puppy. I do scratch at the door to say, “Hey, this moose has got to go potty,” but I’m still learning to be potty-trained. Leash-walking is something else I need help with. I’m very eager to please, so I’ll catch on quickly! My GPRA family says I’ve already got smarts because I know the commands: sit, stay, come, off, and down. For a pup, that’s an impressive feat! Something else I’m good at is riding in the car. Real moose would have a hard time fitting in any vehicle, but this Moose does just fine! At home, I’m very loving and easy-going with a side of rambunctious pyr puppy. Like a lot of my young pyr brethren, I still dig, chew, and protect my home and people, but slow introductions to new folks and positive-reinforcement puppy training will help me grow into the amazing adult pyr I’m meant to be. I’m ready to come home and bring you all the pyr puppy love you could ever want!

Hey, my pyr rock ‘n’ rollers! It’s Jimi Hendrix here, and while I’m named after a rocker, I’m a gentle soul. My GPRA transporter says I can be touched all over, and I take treats very gently. My namesake played the electric guitar, and one thing that electrifies my spirit is ear scratches. I love them! And, belly rubs make me want to sing! Jimi got his kicks by strumming on his guitar, but I get joy from being near my humans. While I’m a little shy at first, I warm up very quickly. I liked snuggling close to my GPRA transporter for the whole drive. Once we arrived, I got on the leash. I’m still learning how to walk on the leash, but Jimi didn’t learn to play the guitar in a day. I’ll learn how to leash-walk with time too! One fun fact about Jimi Hendrix is he was 5 feet and 10 inches tall which is pretty tall. And, one fun fact about me is that I’m a pocket pyr which means I’m on the smaller side for a male pyr. I may not be able to play the guitar like Jimi, but I’ll give you all the sweetness in the world. You saying, “Let’s go home” would be music to my ears!
