Hi, pyr friends! My name is Luna Izzo. My GPRA transporter gave me the last name of some college basketball coach. I don’t know anything about basketball, but I would love to snuggle with you while you watch the game. As long as there are no cats swishing around, I’m happy! The nice lady also says that I am the calmest dog she’s ever transported. That’s because I love traveling (like the basketball term) in the car. In this case, traveling is a good thing! I’m a great house guest too because I’m always house-trained. I can even be left home alone without being destructive. I want to be a good girl even when my coaches (that’s you) aren’t looking! When we’re at home together, I like to cuddle and take naps. Practicing commands can be fun too. I’ll do a command, and you can make the assist by giving me a training treat. I already know sit, stay, and off, so my training is paying off. I’m mostly good on a leash as well! I just need a little help with pulling when I see a dog sometimes; not all dogs make me want to pull, but some do. A family who doesn’t mind helping me with leash-training would be great. I’m a big girl, so I can be strong on the leash when something gets me excited. With some practice and positive reinforcement, though, my leash-walking skills will be a slam dunk! Walking is really fun as is running around the yard. The yard is like my basketball court, and I love to run up and down through the grass. What I really like, however, is to be petted! I will even gently nudge you if you stop. It’s my friendly way of saying, “More love, please!” I’m looking for a furever family that will make a fast break for me and help me make the alley-oop. You’ll throw a ball of love towards me, I’ll catch it, and put it into the basket of my heart. Could you be my perfect match? I’d love to join your team!

Big Boy Dubie Dubie Doo, where are you? I’m right here for anyone who is looking for a sweet, handsome boy to join their family! I was left on my own for a while, so I need some leash training. Luckily, I am easily bribed by Scooby Snacks by which I mean treats, of course! Gentle pets and praises go far with me to build my confidence. If I’m looking like I might say Ruh-roh, I just need some comforts and cuddles to feel all right. It’s no mystery! I’m a very loving dog who can’t wait to go home with you.

Good day wishes to everyone! I’m the affectionate and adoring Snowflake Rose. Unfortunately, even though caring humans made multiple attempts to get my owner to surrender me, I had to live a life filled with neglect. But, I never gave up hope, and through it all, I kept my loving Pyr heart!
Here are a few things that my foster family has learned about me.
“Snowflake Rose is by far the most loveable and attention-seeking Pyr we have ever had. She adores affection from both humans and animals (even cats)!” (Yes, sadly, I am making up for living an isolated, neglected, and penned-up life. But, not anymore, thanks to GPRA!)
“Snowflake Rose knows commands such as ‘sit, ‘come,’ ‘down,’ and ‘no.’ “
“The minute you touch or pet Snowflake Rose, she will close her eyes and Pyr paw you to continue. She very much loves companionship and physical touch from her humans. We have never encountered a more gentle dog than Snowflake Rose.”
“From the first day with us, Snowflake Rose is making great progress learning house manners and trusting her surroundings. But, when she gets unsure of new things, she gives us a low bark. It’s as if she is seeking our help and telling us she is scared. So, we take things slowly with Snowflake Rose.”
“Snowflake Rose loves attention so much that she kept our master gardener neighbors company all day as they worked on our shared property line. She moved with them as they worked down the line trimming back the landscaping, no barking, but instead, she was very content and curious watching them work throughout the day. She was definitely in her element, and her Pyr-happiness showed.” (Yes, for the first time, I am finally living and only now know what love, kindness, and happiness feel like.)
Pyrly grateful forever, Snowflake Rose ❄️ 🌹

Hellos! I am the lovely Luna Leone, and I am eager to make a Pyr-awesome first impression! My foster mom has lots of good things to share with you about me. Here goes:
“Luna is curious, new to the indoors, strong, and a total lover and cuddler! When indoors, she is a ‘real’ couch potato and enjoys the AC! She is super sweet with visitors; all she wants are lots of pets!” (Who knew that inside living is better than the outside, especially on hot summer days!  Oh, one more thing, I hope my future family invites lots of guests over; the more cuddles, the better!)
“Luna knows ‘sit’ and does well with other dogs! She likes to go for walks! She needs help getting comfortable with a leash, but overall does quite well! (Sadly, I had to say goodbye to my Pyr-sister recently, so I would love to have other fur-family members.)
“Luna has been fine being left at home alone with my dog!” (Playdates with my foster fur-friend are pretty chill, we mostly try to outdo each other with how long we can sleep!)
“Luna does not have a schedule or a specific way to let me know she needs to go outside. However, she is learning the house training routine very quickly.” (Yep, Pyrs are smart. We only need a little time and patience to learn new routines.)
“Luna is such a wonderful, sweet Pyr. I think she will be great with someone with a backyard and invested in getting her to a healthy weight and spoiled with cuddles and indoor living.” (Aww, thank you!)
“Luna has not been unusually afraid of storms or fireworks. Of course, loud car noises startle her, but this is not unusual.” (I’m getting the hang of my new life, and it’s incredible! When will I get to meet my new family because I’m Pyr-ready for it!)
Pyrly yours, Luna

Hi there! My name is Lex, how about we get to know each other?

I’ll start- let me just say I am an excellent and oh so handsome companion. I typically like to lounge around the house and “go with the flow” but will jump up to go for a walk with my humans any time!
Speaking of walks, I LOVE them and am very well-mannered on the leash. Just make sure (as any responsible dog owner should) that I am always on a leash or I might just try to escape for some extra fun and oh do I love to be chased!
I love love my family big and small but prefer big humans because you know, less tail tugging and more big boy exercise! I am house-trained *hold for applause* and am happy being loose in the house at all times! Bonus: I am great with cats, in fact I think they’re the boss of me and am very respectful of them.
I am very friendly towards all other doggos and strangers I meet, meeting new friends is fun so let’s do it often!
A few things they say potential families should note and things I can work on (pfft I’m already pyrfect though)
I have general anxiety, before my last home no one knows my history so we cannot say what from.
I do not like to be left outside… I do my business and back in I go or I will bark and quickly dig out of the yard. Uh oh.
I am not a fan of confinement: crates or car rides. So little in fact, I will try and climb all the way into the front seat to be in your lap… idk what is wrong with that though, I am the protector and would make a great chau”fur”.
I also get very protective of my food and bone around others I deem subordinate. I’m sure we can work this out though in good time!
Overall, I am the best boy who deserves lots of love and patience. I can be stubborn as many young male Pyrs are, but will reward you with my own fluffy hugs and cuddles on the couch. Let’s have a pyrfect pawty! What do you say?

Hellos! My name is Bear Brooklyn! I am a very athletic and big, active boy who loves attention and exercise! I never had a problem jumping my four-foot chain-link fence, and I climbed an eight-foot chain link fence with great ease! Does this make me a parkour master? Do you think I could get into the Olympics?

Lots of walks will be best for me in the beginning until I learn that my very secure, fenced-in backyard and home are the only place I want to be. After a rough start, I want to trust my humans, but I need time and patience. Just give me a little time, and I will become your steadfast and faithful guardian.

With quality nutrition and much overdue grooming, GPRA says that I will be one handsome boy! I also walk nicely on a leash and ride well in the car.

Pyrly thankful, Bear Brooklyn

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
