Hi there, I’m Buster Bentley. I guess it’s time for me to go in search of a new family. I’m a loving boy that will always greet you with a wagging tail and lots of love.

GPRA recommends an experienced Pyr owner who also has another mature Pyr or large breed female to support and teach me. You see, I have been missing my sister Pyr. She was my best friend and made every day better. Being alone is not something I like doing, so a home where my humans are around a lot is highly desirable. Also, please never put me in a crate as I intensely dislike confinement. A fenced-in and secure backyard will be ideal for me.

Just remember that I am only two years old, which means I’m a teenager and still figuring things out. I will need additional training, patience, and a loving human who will continue to work with me on my separation anxieties. Now, I’ll brag a bit about the commands that I have learned that include: “sit,” “come,” and “down.” I’m also great with the smaller humans you call children.

While I am on the right path to true happiness, I still need my humans’ help.

Your still learning and big loving boy, Buster Bentley

Good day to you. I’m Grady, and who might you be?

What does a loving, gentle giant like me do when my caretaker gets sick and cannot care for me anymore? The sad truth is that Pyrs like me end up in shelters, and that’s where life ends, but not for this boy.

Lucky me, rescue organizations like GPRA are Pyrs’ saviors and give dogs like me another chance at living out our years feeling loved. You understand, right? Doesn’t everyone want to feel loved? Now, I need some super special humans to look at my picture and say, “that’s our boy!”

Here are a few things to consider as you decide which gentle giant you want to adopt.

Pyrs like me are mellow and very calm. You will still see lots of play in me, and with the right balance of shorter walks and outside time, you will find me dozing the day away. No worries, I will also be guarding the homefront and let you know if something needs your attention. Don’t you want to know when a butterfly flies by the window? Just kidding, but I will let you know when the UPS truck arrives.

One unique thing about me is that I have learned to take my human’s hand and lead them to the door when I want to go outside. I’m gentle, well-mannered, and respectful, especially of my humans.

So, that’s a bit about me. As my wonderful foster family learns all about me, I will update you. Until then, thank you for taking the time to read my story, and maybe we will meet very soon!

Pyrly yours, Grady

Hi. I am Boo Boo Bear, and who might you be?

My loving mom rescued me when I was six months old. Sadly, now she is very sick and can no longer care for me. As you can imagine, our goodbye was sorrowful. She did a very loving thing because she knows that I am in good hands with GPRA.

Everyone says that I am one handsome boy, have a gorgeous coat, and am an absolute sweetheart. Well, thank you! Just know that I am also a loyal guardian and protector when needed. I can also detect seizures. Aren’t dogs the absolute best? We help our humans in so many ways.

A few other things to share are that I am house-trained and know commands such as sit and come. I’m great with other dogs, and my friend was an Aussie. However, I have no experience with cats.

I’m fearless with most things, except you may find me under a table during a thunderstorm. Do you think you can help me find a quiet hideaway from the loud noises?

Last and most importantly, my previous mom said I am very loving. Yes, I am because she loved me!

Pyrly deserving of a new loving home. Boo Boo Bear

I have no idea why a six-year-old, 100 lb. Pyr boy is named after a small bird that quacks and swims. Forget the pond, I love being outside, running, and playing. Grown people, kids, cats, and other dogs are all A+ in my book because I’m super social. You can take me on long walks or leave me home alone, my house manners are good. Since honesty is the best policy, especially when you’re choosing a life fur partner, I’m timid around men when we first meet. And more specifically, I cannot be around aggressive, screaming men. They terrify me. I wasn’t the one hurt, but that behavior brings back sad memories. Hopefully, if you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below, we’ll start making fun and loving memories really soon.

I’m here! The people-loving, 1-year-old, 100 lb. Pyr who’s happy to avoid car rides and play with you instead! In fact, I love playing with kids so much, I forget I outweigh some of them, lol. Surely you know I’m not trying to knock them over, it just happens. Hey, I have a great idea: you buy some super-duper treats and I’ll practice not jumping over and over and over until all the snacks are gone! I lived with a lab, so I know I’m dog friendly, but I don’t know what it’s like living and sleeping in a house, even though I used to visit my neighbors every day for extra hugs and ear rubs. Guess we’ll need another bag of those super-duper treats, huh? Well, I’m ready if you are so please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below.

Brave, bold, fearless, and valiant. Yep, that’s what a Hawaiian dictionary would say about my name. A vet’s chart would say I’m 3-years-old and 100 lbs. and anyone writing a book about me would say I’m housetrained, good with young kids (I think humans call them toddlers?) and can be left home alone four or five hours in a row.  I’m so well crate trained that I even sleep there overnight. Cats and other dogs make good company so if you have either of those, that’s one more reason to please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below.

My family needs you to want me. At 10 months old, and 100 lbs., I’m too much dog for my suddenly sick mom and unwell grandmother. They’re heartbroken about doing what’s best for me so I really want to help them feel better by getting a great home. As a puppy, I don’t have a long history, or a lot of behaviors, to share but here’s what I know: I’m sweet, loving, and still working on potty training. I’m great with my young human siblings, my Dachshund and Lab/Pit canine ones, and the cats (who I like to pet with my Pyr paw). Leash walking will be a new experience because “outside” has always meant a fenced yard. So far, I’ve never been allowed on the furniture so if that’s your preference, we’re set. If you want a couch buddy, I’ll learn! However, not sure if I’ll get used to car rides or eating chicken. I’m not a vegetarian or anything, chicken just really upsets my tummy and makes me itch. Still, this doesn’t seem like a problem, I’ve seen tons of TV commercials for lots of different kinds of dog foods. If you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below, I’ll tell you which ones look yummy.
