Ravioli here to say hello to all of you terrific humans! Did you know that America loves Ravioli (AKA me)?

Here are a few things that GPRA’s Pyr-sational walkers have said about me.

“Ravioli is so much fun! He likes to chase, play and jump around with his humans! He is very playful! He will fly off the shelf!” (I think that fly off the shelf means that I will find a loving home very quickly, which I hope is true!)

“Ravioli continues to be an absolute delight. Today, Ravioli enjoyed extended time in the play yard, as well as a long walk. Ravioli walks like a dream on the leash. He will benefit from continued leash work as he will pull when spotting a squirrel.” (Yep, so sorry, I cannot resist those squirrels.)

“Ravioli loves and soaks up attention and has a great disposition. Ravioli is truly a joy! (GPRA volunteers are the best type of humans out there! I am a grateful boy!)

“This sweet boy could not be any better. Ravioli is going to be a great addition to some lucky family who adopts him.” (Aww, thank you.)

Your Pyr-fun, playful and loving boy, Ravioli

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

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

Ahoy, mates! I am Pyr-ate Jack Sparrow! Hailing from the far-away lands of homeless Great Pyrenees, I will charm my way into your heart! This is what GPRA knows about me.
“Jack will do very well with younger dogs and an active family.” (Yes, I very much agree because I love to play with fur-siblings and cuddle with my humans.)
“Anyone lucky enough to adopt Jack has to be okay with Jack being on the couch because this boy will sit on your lap like a cat. He still thinks he is a puppy that can squeeze onto your lap.” (What’s wrong with me being on your lap and on the couch? I want to be as close as possible to my humans!)
“Jack is quite active and will thrive in a backyard. He also loves daily walks.” (Yes, outside time is the best! Do you like going on walks, too?)
Pyr-ready to make land into your heart and home. – Jack

Hellos, everyone! I am proud mama Pyr Toastie. It’s hard for me to believe how much my life has changed after bringing seven puppies into the world in a shelter. Thankfully, GPRA helped my puppies, their handsome Pyr sire, and me. I am one proud mama and did my best by the puppies! Now that my babes are being adopted into loving homes, it is my turn to find my happy fur-ever.
Did you see the fun video of me barking at my foster human sister because I wanted her sandwich? Yep, that’s adorable me! So what’s a hungry mama to do when she sees a sandwich? Lucky for me, I got a little bit of that sandwich!
Here is what my Pyr-magnificient foster family knows about me.
“Mama Toastie is an earnest Mom, but she also has a super playful side, too! (I will have more time to play when I have raised my puppies. Will you play with me?)
“Toastie can be very chill. She walks next to me off-leash around the house. But, of course, this could be because her pups are nearby.” (Actually, it is because I love being close to my humans who take loving care of me.)
“Toastie now comes into the house by herself and lays down to chill out while her puppies are taking a pupper break.” (A mama needs breaks from the puppies. I cannot wait for the days when I can doze the day away without my adorable rascals.)
“Toastie enjoys being brushed and loves belly rubs and ear rubs.” (I’m a genuinely lovely Pyr girl.)
Your Pyr-fect girl, Toastie 🐾♥️🐾

Hi! I am the friendly and loving Polar Blizzard! Even though my name might sound a little foreboding, know that this Polar Blizzard will melt hearts!
Lucky for me, my Pyr-tastic foster parents are eager to tell you all about me. Here goes…
“Polar Blizzard loves his humans. He is a confident boy and checks on his humans throughout the day to see what we are doing. He will bond quickly with trusting humans. During the day and sometimes in the evening, Polar finds a quiet place in a closet area to rest and sleep.” (Yep, I love being in close proximity with my humans! Did you know that Pyrs are gregarious? I will also enjoy having another Pyr-friend and/or fur-sibling home with me for companionship, too.)
“Polar Blizzard is great with visitors. When neighbors visit, he leans up against them for more petting.” (I love receiving affection. The more attention, the merrier I am!)
“Polar Blizzard takes two long walks each day and some shorter walks. He is good on a leash and does not pull or show much interest in other dogs.” (Walks are the best, and I love spending lots of quality time with my humans! I hope to enjoy lots of daily walks in the future, too!)
Oh, one more thing, GPRA recommends that my future home not have cats or smaller dogs.
Pyr-ready for adoption and my very own loving family, Polar Blizzard

Hey, all. I am Prism and a very thankful boy to have been rescued by GPRA from a Shelter. Here is what GPRA’s walking volunteers say about me.
“Prism is a very good boy. Although a little shy, he is a dear love. He passed GPRA’s evaluation with flying colors.”
“Prism loves walking the trails and is a delightful and wonderful boy.”
“Prism is excellent on the leash until he sees a deer. Then, it is playtime.” (Yep, this is my work in progress. Be ready to teach me how to maintain my good leash manners even when I see a deer.)
“Prism has lots of extra pep in his step. It was fun to watch him run a bit in the large play yard.” (I’m a fun boy that just wants to run and play.)
“Prism is more interested in being petted and loved on than playing today. I am so happy to report that Prism is getting more comfortable, and his confidence increases each day.” (Yep, thanks to GPRA’s volunteers, my trusting and confident self is starting to shine.)
“Prism is the sweetest boy. We got to be friends very quickly.” (Thank y’all so much for helping to build my trust. GPRA’s volunteers are Pyr-awesome!)
Your Pyrly happy and grateful boy, Prism
