Hi, Hi, Hi! My name is Zola, and I am so excited to introduce myself to you! Yes, I am another pup with the Stryker family. Our mom is a Great Pyrenees, and Dad is an Anatolian Shepherd. So, I am an Anatolian Pyrenees. Can you believe that someone surrendered my littermates and me to a shelter?

My foster parents are Pyr-tastic and are taking care of both Mira and me. Here are a few things they shared with GPRA about me:
“Zola is a baby. She will curl up against/inside your legs or in your arms and fall asleep.” (What can I say? I love to cuddle with my favorite humans!)
“Zola seems like she will be on the smaller side as she has smaller
paws. She has started to put on more weight.”
“Zola is super playful and doesn’t back down at all. Zola will go until she wins the war of attrition. After that, she’s fine with being on her back and putting her jiu-jitsu to good use. She loves crinkly toys and loves it when we get down on all fours and slap the ground for playtime.” (I might be cute, but I’m a warrior in the making! I will love it if you train with me!!)
“So far, Zola is learning the housetraining thing relatively quickly.” (Yes, I’m trying to be a good puppy!)
“Zola is a people pleaser and still in the early stages of expressing some anxiety from being separated from her littermates. After a few minutes, though, she gives up her Celine Dion impression and goes to sleep while cuddling with Mira (her sister). Paired with her love for humans, she will benefit from having another dog as she expresses some anxiety when separated from us.” (Yes, I am very much missing my other littermates! Can you blame a pup for a bit of drama? With time and some confidence building, I will learn to be a big, independent girl)

Your Pyr-sational puppy, Zola ♥

Hi there! Luca is my name.
I am the only male pup of the Stryker family, which makes me extra special. Our mom is a Great Pyrenees, and Dad is an Anatolian Pyrenees. So, I am an Anatolian Shepherd.
My foster family says that I am an absolutely wonderful puppy! (Yep, that’s me!)
Here are a few other things my loving foster parents said about me.
“Luca is gentle and full of personality. He loves people and other animals.”
“Luca is comfortable with being picked up and having his feet and mouth touched.” (I like it a lot when my humans love on me. I especially love the belly rubs.)
“We are working on potty training.” (Yep, it is housetraining time, and I am working really hard to be a perfect puppy!)
“We only use a crate for Luca at night, and it’s right next to our bed. We are so happy that Luca is sleeping through the night.” (I love being with my humans at night, too!)
“Luca is learning what “no” means and loves chewing on toys and chasing them around.” (Yep, I am all puppy. Eat, play, get love from my humans, sleep… repeat!)
“Luca is a 100% sweet, adorable, loving, and gorgeous puppy!” (Aww, thank you. I am going to give you lots of kisses for those sweet comments!)

Your Pyr-loving boy, Luca ❤

Is it my turn now? Ok, here goes. My name is Shea. I’m also a Stryker pup. Our mom is a Great Pyrenees, and Dad is an Anatolian Shepherd. So, I am an Anatolian Pyrenees. Yep, there are seven of us. Picking just one will not be an easy task because we are super sweet and unique in our own way. Good luck!

My Pyr-sensational foster parents are taking care of Chula and me. Here are a few things they have learned about both of us.
“Shea is super sweet and playful and full of energy!” (Playing with my sister is the best!)
“Shea is slightly smaller with no dewclaws.”
“Shea is very independent and out-going. She greets new people immediately and explores everything.” (There is a big world out there to explore, and I’m ready for it!)
“Shea is ‘top’ puppy and will boss her sister when eating.” (With some guidance, I will learn manners with my fur-family members.)
“Both puppies love treats and think every crinkly bag means it is treat time.”
“Both puppies are not rough and tumble players. Instead, they enjoy calmer playtime.”

Pyr-ready for the good life, Shea ❤

Hello, hello! My name is Cardi!
Yep, I am another pup with the Stryker family. Our mom is a Great Pyrenees, and Dad is an Anatolian Shepherd. So, I am an Anatolian Pyrenees. Can you believe that someone surrendered my littermates and me to a shelter?

Do you like my sweet smile? Then, if you pick me, my darling personality and smile will greet you every day!
Here’s what my foster parents told GPRA about precious me!

“Cardi has single dewclaws. She is fluffier than Ana and has longer ears. She’s a little more independent than her sister but is still very friendly. She loves playtime with humans and her sister.” (I am pretty cute if I do say so myself)

“Cardi is the more mischievous and outgoing of the two. She usually instigates the wrestling with her sister. She tries to get our other dogs to play with her also, but they ignore her.” (I love to play with my sister! I want to include the bigger dogs in my fun as well, but I think they rather watch us from a distance.)

“Overall, Cardi and Ana are the sweetest puppies we have ever fostered. They have been pretty easy-going, too. We are working on “sit,” and they are catching on pretty quickly.” (I am quick to learn and quicker to love!)

Your Pyr-darling, Cardi ❤

Top of the morning to you! I am the sweetheart Ana.

Yes, I am also a member of the Stryker puppy family. Our mom is a Great Pyrenees, and Dad is an Anatolian Shepherd. So, I am an Anatolian Pyrenees.

My foster parents are taking care of Cardi and me, and we are very thankful to them for giving us a great start. Here’s what they told GPRA about me:
“Ana loves attention from humans and loves playing with her sister, Cardi.”
“Ana and Cardi act like they are starving all the time because they eat faster than any puppies we have ever fostered.” (Yep, I am a growing girl. When you grow up with seven littermates, you learn to eat fast.)
“Ana and Cardi sleep together. She does not like being left alone and always prefers to be with her humans or with her sister.” (It’s so much better to have company all the time.)
“Ana is more submissive of the two puppies and is more of a snuggler.”
“Both puppies are fast learners and very easy-going.” (If you are asking if puppies can be easy-going, the answer is yes. It is the Pyr in me.)
Your Pyr-sweet girl, Ana ❤

Hi there, humans! I am Chula! I am yet another Stryker pup. Our mom is a Great Pyrenees, and Dad is an Anatolian Shepherd. So, I am an Anatolian Pyrenees. I am currently housing with my sister Shea!

My Pyr-tastic foster parents have a lot to say about little me:
“Chula is more cautious and takes a little longer to warm up to everyone, but now that she’s comfortable, she is a big snuggler. She will eventually abandon your lap but curl up at your feet.” (I love cuddling up to my humans after a long day!)

“She has the “Pyr paw” down already, which is adorable but can be tough with those tiny short puppy claws. She has double dewclaws. She doesn’t venture out immediately to greet new people entering the room.” (Although I am a little shy, I will be sure to greet you by offering you my Pry paw!)

“Chula is learning how to give some notice that she has to go outside.” (I’m working hard at figuring out all of this potty outside business!)

“They like to sleep in the crate with the door open but do NOT like being shut in or left alone at night.” (I do not like being confined to tiny spaces. Lots of breathing room will make me happy!)

“Both pups are great with other dogs. Our male Pyr is not interested in playing, and the pups are smart enough just to leave him alone. They like treats and are very interested in every crinkly bag.” (Crinkly bags will always get this girl’s attention! In the future, treats will help teach me to “sit,” “come,” and “stay”!)

Your Pyrly Pyr-fect, Chula ❤

Good day to you! I am the wonderful boy, Murphey Moore. I was adopted by a loving owner who realized that my size was a bit more than she could manage. It was hard to say goodbye because we bonded very quickly. You see, I immediately knew that she was my charge, which means I was very committed to watching over her and our home. After all, this is the nature of the Great (emphasis on GREAT) Pyrenees! We are devoted guardians.

Here are a few things my owner shared with GPRA.
“I adopted Murphey because he was the only dog that got along with my cat and dog.”
“Murphey is a truly great dog. He follows me everywhere.”
“Murphey was quite famous and friendly with everyone at Petsmart.”
“Murphey has a wise demeanor. He is smart and quite sensitive.”
“Murphey needs someone who will invest time into teaching him leash manners.”

So, that is a bit about me. As my foster family learns more, I will update you. Until then, I will be waiting to meet my Pyr-ever family.

Pyrly faithful, Murphey Moore

Hi, Cootie is my name. Yep, someone named me Cootie. As long as I have a loving human calling me Cootie, I will be your faithful guardian.
Since I am only two years old and have already been a momma, I’m excited to find my very own Pry-ever human family!
My previous family describes me as a family dog. Cats are cool, and I love children. A backyard that allows me to run around and get out all of my teenage energy is an ideal thing. If you do not have a backyard, count on me as your walking buddy. Just know, I still need time to improve on my leash manners. Be sure to walk me early in the morning or the evening when hot summer days have cooled down. Because of my double coat, humans need to be careful not to overdo activities with their Pyrs in the summer heat.
Additional training will help me grow up to be a well-mannered girl. If there are other dogs in the house, be sure to feed us separately and pick up food bowls after eating because I do not like sharing my food bowl. Yes, this is an area for improvement, and with some help from my humans, I will do better. You see, Great Pyrenees are people-pleasing, big loves that want to do the right thing. I’m already doing quite well with commands such as “sit,” “stay,” “off,” and “down.”
Here’s what my foster family said about me. As they learn more, I will update you.
“Cootie is a very loving dog. She is good with adults, kids, cats, and other dogs. She also understands ‘no’ and ‘heel’ when she is on leash.”
Are you ready to get some love from this Cootie girl?

Pyrly yours, Cootie ♥️

Hey, all. I am Charlotte. GPRA stepped up to rescue me after my previous owners no longer claimed me from the local shelter. You see, I got out and ended up in the shelter. At first, my owners claimed me. Sadly, the last time I escaped, they did not show up to get me. Thank you, GPRA!)

Since I am still a youngster, I have lots and lots to learn. GPRA says that I am a diamond in the rough because I’m such a fun, full-of-life, and gorgeous girl. They also said that I am a sweetheart that loves hugs. (Of course, I love hugs, I’m a Great Pyrenees!)

Obedience training, patience, consistency, lots of exercise, and routine will help me thrive and make you proud. If you put the time into teaching young me all I need to know now, you will have a well-mannered, devoted, and loyal guardian.

I’m proud to share that my leash walking skills are good and improving thanks to GPRA’s dog-loving walkers’ time and help. (These humans are Pyr-awesome!)

As I transition to my furever home and family, it will be best if I am the only dog in the house for a while as I am still learning proper manners with other dogs. Since I have not had any help in this area, it will only take me a short time to learn how to be my best Pyr-self! (Remember, I’m still learning and need your help!) Come meet me soon, because I will be snatched up quickly!
Pyrly yours, Charlotte

Together, forever! This is our motto, and it has gotten us through some difficult days. GPRA asked us to share a bit about ourselves, so here goes. I am Quin (the girl with the darker ears), and my brother and sidekick is Togepi. His name is pronounced –  Toga-pea. Since humans have a little difficulty pronouncing it, I hope this helps. With all the changes in our lives, it’s very comforting hearing our names and receiving lots of love and affection.

As you can see from our picture, Togepi is bigger than me, but we snuggle like little dogs. We are desperately bonded and have been each other’s comfort space for many years. We love climbing all over our foster mom and jockeying for position to get the most ear scratches and belly rubs. We have excellent house manners, do not care about the food humans eat, and LOVE napping on furniture and beds, especially if there is a human with us. However, I’m sure you can convince us to love a comfy dog bed, too!

There are no kids in our foster home, but I am sure we will love them. As for cats, we think they want to play. However, they really do not want to engage with us. We will be great family members for a calm household with humans who have plenty of time to reassure and pet us… and keep petting us.

As easy as we are to live with, we will need a tall, strong fence that we cannot go over, go under or push over. (Yes, Pyrs can climb!) Things were not very good in our previous life, so we can get easily frightened, which is another reason we need a tall fence. Thunder and lightning are two of our least favorite things. If you help us find a closet or little hiding spot in your home and comfort us, we will be fine. We worry when our foster mom leaves us, but this is understandable considering we are still learning how to trust our surroundings.

Pyrly hopeful that our very own loving humans are somewhere out there…Quin and Togepi
