That funny looking symbol between our names is probably the most important thing you need to know about us. We are a totally bonded girl/boy pair. We’re 6-years-old and both weigh about 100 lbs. We’ve lived together on a farm our entire lives but we’re not littermates, just BPFF—Best Pyr Friends Forever. And if we’re out of each other’s sight, we call out just like you humans do to find your favorite person. Our foster mom thinks we lived inside at some point because we know exactly what to do with a dog bed. And so far, we know where to—and not to—potty as well. We like people, dogs, cats, and being loved. We share treats but I’ll confess, I don’t like sharing my food with Darby. It works out OK most of the time since he’s an Eeyore-kind-of-guy, laid back without a care in the world. I’m mostly calm too, except during storms. He tries to comfort me, but thunder is just so scary, I need both people and Darby to help me feel better. I have Darby forever; do you want to be our person and my storm guardian?

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.

I don’t know what a senior living community is but apparently this 5-year-old, 100 lb. boy can’t move into one with my elderly parents. They’re upset about kissing me goodbye, but they have to go and I’m relieved we’ll both have safe new homes.  Hopefully mine will have a fence since I enjoy being outside but tend to wander without a barrier. If you’re looking for a super loving, calm, nothing-bothers-him dog who also likes humans of all ages and sizes, choose me. We can go on car rides together during which I’ll happily share my food with you, if you want it, since I’ve never shown any food aggression. Cats are kinda new to me and so far, a great source of exercise. They always outrun and out jump me, but the chase is still fun. Unless it’s storming. The only things I do during a storm are hide under a bed and whimper. Yes, I know lots of dogs feel that way but it’s still scary so maybe my new family will know how to help be feel less afraid. If you have some ideas, or just want to meet me, please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below.

Hunker down Georgia fans and choose me for your all-star family! Actually, this 3-year-old, 100 lb. boy will bark for any team as long as I’m loved and getting lots of attention. I’m one of five dogs right now and have to confess, REALLY thankful my owners were selfless enough to trust GPRA to help me find a new home. If you’re curious, I’m laid back, and fine being home alone in the house. Car rides, walks, and kids are also on my “good things” list; swimming and those crate things are not. Cats are neutral since I haven’t met any. Other dogs tell me some humans don’t like paws-on-the-shoulder hugs so will you teach me a proper Pyr-to-Person greeting? If we’re good so far, please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below so we can keep getting to know each other.
