It’s a beautiful day here in pyr world! Oh, hello, I’m Baxter! It’s so nice to meet you! Can you believe my name means “baker” ? My GPRA friends say that right now I’m like a little piece of dough that will be shaped and molded by the family who adopts me. Basically, I’m still a puppy who will need basic command training as well as potty training reinforced at my new home. Being a very young pyr, I get the zoomies! You know the feeling after you have your coffee and cake; you’re ready to run a mile. Well, a yard would be great for me to work off my energy too! Because I’m a playful and friendly pyr boy, I do great with other dogs. At my foster home, I hang out with all types of doggy friends, both big and small, all day, and we get along like cookies and milk! While I do have that pyr pup pep in my step, I’m actually very good on the leash. I even sleep through the night too! Like most pyrs, I have my bursts of energy, but I am also calm. While we’re waiting for the muffins to come out of the oven, you can brush me as I find it a very soothing activity. Of course, most importantly, I’m very good with people. You might even say I’m a sweetie pie because I love to snuggle. The real icing on the cake, though, would be if you adopted me today!

Hello, Pyr People! We’re a bonded pair of lovely pyr ladies searching for the best home for us! I’m Rhea, and as I’m Iris’ dear mama, I’ll go ahead and speak first. As a young pyr lady, I have good energy, and I enjoy a nice walk. Lucky for you, I’m good on the leash! I do need a slow approach when meeting new folks, but once I get to know them, I warm up nicely and am quite affectionate. Because I have excellent manners, I’m also basically housetrained. If there is an established potty routine, I stick to it! Hi, everyone; I’m Iris, Rhea’s daughter. I’m a young pyr girl, so everything is still new to me. I am pretty nervous when I meet new people, but I eventually warm up. In general, I’d say I’m the beta to my mother’s alpha. She’s definitely my leader, and I’m good on the leash, especially when she is by my side. Another wonderful thing about us is that we are good with other dogs and cats. We’re sure you’ve heard the expression two heads are better than one, and we’re here to tell you that the same is true of pyrs!

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying: little girls are made of sugar, spice, and everything nice! This little girl- my name’s Joan- is only sweet. My foster mama says I am made of pure sugar and cuddles! I’ve never met a stranger and will put my head right in their hands because to me, humans are the cherry on top of this sundae called life. As I look to my humans for directions and for treats, I’m a quick learner, so teaching me new skills and tricks has been smoother than soft-serve ice cream! And, since I’m a young pyr lady, I will need to continue to learn basic commands through positive reinforcement a.k.a treats and praise only, please! I used to live outside which means I am learning house manners, including potty-training, but it’s going really well. Just like sprinkles come in all shapes and sizes, I love fuzzy creatures of all kinds. I play so nicely and have so much fun with my foster dog siblings, both male and female. When we play, I show my warm as hot fudge personality by rolling over and showing my belly. Plus, I am excited to meet each and every dog on our neighborhood walks. Similar to whip cream, I’m light and fluffy on the leash! I love to go on walks, and I have very nice walking manners. Foster Mom tells me that I am very gentle and loving towards the kitties as well. When we’re hanging around the house, I love to chase my ball and chew on my Kong toy. As a young pyr pup, chewing is a fun activity. I’m easy like sundae morning, and I can’t wait to come home with you!

Greetings, Pyr Pals! I’m Ruth, and my name means compassionate friend. That’s because I’m a sweet and friendly girl who is ready to come home with you! I would say my BFFs, my best friends forever, are my humans. They are just so nice to cuddle with! My foster mama says I’m a velcro dog which means I want to be where you are. Because I love my humans so much, I’m protective of them. One way I protect you is by being a barker to let everyone know I am here. When you leave, though, I am okay by myself at home, but I’d prefer my family to be home more often than not. Kids, which I know is people speak for little human, are some of my bestest friends too! I think my happy, go-lucky personality is what makes me such a good companion for kiddos. My other friends are dogs (both big and small), but cats are definitely more of acquaintances. While I don’t mind them, we don’t hang out. Friends have to be respectful, and I show my foster parents how respectful I am of their space by pottying outside. I’m completely house-trained, and I even know how to use the doggy door to get to the backyard. When you want to call me in for a walk, just say my name because I come when called! What’s the old saying about friends…All you have to do is call/And I’ll be there. On the leash, I do pull a bit and I’m a big pyr girl, but I respond very well to direction. Friends are good listeners! I know friends do fun things together, and walking is one of my favorite activities. Maybe, you can walk on over to your computer and apply to adopt me today. Then, I can give you all the love and companionship you could ever want! After all, what are friends for?

Hi-ya! I’m Buddy Elf! While I’m as cheery as an elf, I’m not small like one. I’m a big pyr boy who needs a fenced in backyard where I can stretch my long legs! Also, I don’t need as much space as the elves have at the North Pole, but I do like the peaceful atmosphere of life outside of the city. Elves are also known for their camaraderie whether they’re singing together or making toys. And, guess what? I LOVE being around other dogs! We don’t sing carols or make rocking horses, but we do play a lot. I have good, puppy energy, so being with another large dog is a must for me; however, I get along best with beta dogs since I’m the alpha! Elves love people too; I’ve heard they make cookies or shoes for them. People are my favorite! Cuddling on the couch with my humans makes me so happy. You’ll see in a lot of my pictures that I love being on the couch. I’m as cozy on the couch as an elf nestled in a fuzzy slipper! My foster family says my loving nature is what makes me a very special boy. Belly rubs and getting brushed are like candy to me! Another thing that makes me as sweet as peppermint is I’m housetrained! Speaking of treats, I’m very treat-motivated which makes me easy to train. So far, I’ve learned “sit” and “down.” If you need to get an extra shot of cheer in the form of espresso, please take me along! I love to be where my people are, and I love car rides, not to mention pup cups. I’m as excited as an elf flying in Santa’s sleigh when we go for a ride! Going for walks is fun too. Like elves, I’m known for my friendly disposition. Because I want to be everyone’s buddy, I do sometimes pull hard towards people out of excitement. Foster Mama and I are working on it! We’re also working on getting me less scared of loud noises when we’re on our neighborhood strolls, so I’ll need someone who is committed to helping me overcome my fear of loud cars or high winds. I can’t wait to be your best buddy! Please consider taking me home today!
