I’m Percy Sledge, and I’m popping in to say, “Hello! Wanna be my best friend?” There’s one thing I’m passionate about above all else: people! Foster Mom says my particular speciality is cuddling, but I like to give kisses too. My perfect home would be where my family is home more often than not since I don’t like being alone. I’m a velcro dog, so I want to be wherever you are. Of course, sometimes, you have leave which makes me a little upset, so I need to baby-gated off to one area; that way, I won’t jump up on things when you’re gone. Speaking of jumping up, I am a big boy, and I, occasionally, counter surf; however, Foster Mama and I are working on it. Because I’m treat-motivated, I’m a proficient trainee! I’ve already learned several commands: sit, stop, okay, off. Foster Mom tells me I’m quite poised on the leash too, so I’m easy to walk. When we see other people and dogs on our walks, I’m phenomenal at being the friendly neighborhood pyr. If you want to have people over our house to visit, I’ll be sure to give them a proper pyr greeting with a pyr paw, of course! Other dogs, both male and female, can come over for a playdate as well because I consider my canine brethren to be my pals. Or, we could visit friends and neighbors as I’m a pleasant and polite car rider! I’ll always be excited to come back to our house, though, because to me, there’s no place like home. And, I treat the house like a palace by always pottying outside; that’s right, I’m completely housetrained! Whether you want to spend a peaceful afternoon brushing me or giving me lots of pets, I’ll just be happy to be by your side.

Hi, All! I’m Walter, and I’m ready to waltz into your life and be your best pal! I’m a big, young pyr boy with good energy, so I still pull on the leash. My GPRA friends say that I take redirection well, though. Pulling is my way of saying, “I’m so excited!” There are other dogs and people to see! I’ll wow you with how friendly I am because I get along well with doggos and kiddos. There’s a big world out there, and with my friendly personality, there are so many people to meet! I need to go to a home with another dog because playing and running outside with a canine companion is my favorite thing to do. Plus, knowing there’s another dog in the house just makes me feel safe, especially if you’re gone. And, guess what? I’m house-trained, so you don’t have to worry about me. A warm, welcoming home and a loving family is at the top of my wish list.  Please consider adopting me today!

Hello, Pyr-Enthusiasts! I’m Panda, also known as Boss. I promise I’m not bossy! In fact, I’ve been described as very obedient. One way I can show you what a good listener I am is by how many commands I already know. I’m not pandering when I say I have mastered sit, stay, come, off and down. Pandas are black and white (just like me), and there’s no gray area for where I go potty. I’m always house-trained! I give a bark to let you know it’s time for me to go outside. While pandas are known to be soft-spoken animals, I do like to bark. It’s the pyr in me! Even though I can be vocal, I actually prefer a quiet and calm household much like a panda would. I think that’s why I get along with cats so well because they just want to curl up on a blanket and chill. A homebody I may be, but I actually do love walks and rides in the car. Being with my family is always my top priority, so where you go, I like to go too. That’s one way that I am really different from a panda bear as pandas like to live solitary lives, but I want to be by your side always. And, when I want more attention or cuddles, I’ll give you pyr paw! If you do need to leave me at home, however, I can be trusted without being crated because I’m a good boy! At my foster home, I’m so enjoying hanging out with my humans by the lake and the pool. I also like chilling in the backyard. I like to lay in the grass like a panda combing through a bamboo forest. A six-foot fence would be best for me, though, as I have been known to jump a fence now and then. Overall, I am an easy-going dude, as easy going as a panda chomping on some bamboo, which means I get along with anyone I meet and even other dogs. I just need slow introductions to other dogs, and then we can hang out. I’m not super playful, but once I got to know my foster dog siblings, we became friends. If you look at my pictures, you’ll see me looking left, right, and center. It’s because I’m searching for a family who will love me, and I can’t wait to give them all the love I have in my big panda bear-sized heart!

Greetings, my pyr companions! They say a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. My name is Emily Rose, and I’m very sweet, indeed! My GPRA friends say I love cuddles and pets. You may even say I’m a rose without a thorn because I’m good on the leash AND I liked to be brushed! I just see the world through rose-colored glasses, so whether you’re a grown human or a little rosebud, I think you call them children, I’ll love to be around you. Just like we have clusters of roses, I get along well with my species. Other dogs are some of my best friends! Cats can be my friends sometimes; I do better with cats if I have a playful doggy friend to get out all my rosy energy. If you need me to play chase or just relax on the couch, call me over because I come when called. My manners are in full bloom! I’m even house-trained. If you’re looking for a big girl to be a playmate or a snuggler, take me home with you. I promise to always come up smelling like roses!

Hi, there, my pyr friends! I’m Boo Boo, and I’m pyr-sitively pleased to meet you! I just love this time of year because with the changing leaves and cooler weather, it’s always a boo-tiful, or beautiful, day in the neighborhood. We should take a walk together because I’m very good on the leash. Walking with my human and taking in the sights is my favorite way to spend a sunny afternoon. Being in the backyard is fun too. I like to run around the yard when I get the zoomies to feel the crisp morning air in all my boo-tiful fur! Like all my pyr brethren, my fur is gloriously floofy and needs brushing, and I love to be groomed by my GPRA friends. When we’re done, you can reward me with pets and scratches. I’m a sweet boy who loves to be loved. You’ll love me too because I’m housetrained. I’d love to be your best Boo Bear and come home with you!

So, I’ve had quite a surprising and uncertain time lately. When my elderly owner was hospitalized, my dog brother and I had to leave home, too. Sadly, this almost 10-year-old, 101 lb. boy is alone now. I’m very calm and good with other dogs. I think my owner’s been sick for a while based on my matted coats and limited care we were getting (and maybe why my brother didn’t make it). So, along with love and treats, I’ll need a lot of shade—or short visits outside—until my fur starts growing back. Do you have some shade trees in your back yard and space in your heart for a senior who never expected to be without his brother or leave home?

People! I want people! I might bark at you through the window but this 2.5-year-old, 101 lb. boy is ready for less alone time. The silver lining is I’m OK being alone in the house all day, in case you have to go to one of those job things. I also know what to do if you say “sit,” “come,” “stay,” or “down.” Other dogs are great play buddies, as long as they don’t eat my food. I once used my inside voice to remind another dog whose food bowl was whose. If you decide to please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below, I’ll probably jump all over you with pure joy but eventually, you can teach me a more appropriate greeting. (Hint: treats help me learn faster.)

Hi, I’m Ilsa a 5 year old, 101 lb female who enjoys walks, loves being petted and brushed, and happily takes medicine wrapped in cheese. I probably wasn’t supposed to be listening but I heard my human tell GPRA I’d be a great only-dog for a single person, or a couple, maybe without kids, or kids that are older. She also said I’m well-loved, which of course I knew, and I have been afraid of bad weather (which I also knew). Then she said the sweetest thing that I didn’t know…mom told GPRA I deserve to live with a strong, very knowledgable dog-person who will patiently and firmly guide me through my insecurities to be less protective of my food, toys, and territory. I’ve been working on it and getting so much better. AND GREAT NEWS! I am no longer afraid of stairs! I am making so much progress and will be the best dog if a person might remind me of the rules when I forget. If this sounds like you, or maybe someone you know, will you please email information@greatpyratlanta.com or click the “Apply to Adopt” button below?
