Hi! I am Big Boy! Well, I am not a big boy yet, but I’m working on it. As a young, neglected, and abandoned young Pyr, the early months of my life were not good. Sadly, my family left me behind when they moved, which has me wondering why they even got me in the first place. However, that’s enough about my past. It’s time to turn the page and start again. The good news is that I am learning that humans can be kind and loving, and I am trusting and settling into my foster home very quickly.
Here’s what GPRA knows about me:
“Big Boy is smart, energetic, and playful. He has a lot of puppy energy in him.”
“It was sad to see him so terrified when his foster humans picked him up. But, after hearing kind and encouraging words, Big Boy was ready to trust and engage.” (I have learned not to trust things, but my foster humans were so kind to me that I could not help but feel safe and secure!)
“Big Boy will benefit from continued leash work as he is still learning. He is also learning the ‘shake’ command and knows the ‘sit’ and ‘no’ commands.” (Yep, I’m just a youngster, do you have the time and patience to help me learn?)
“Big Boy is house-trained. And, sometimes, he will also go to the door to let you know that he has to go outside.” (I try to be a good boy, too!)
“My favorite thing about Big Boy is his loving and playful personality. He will cuddle up with you as well as chase and play with you in the yard.” (Aww, thank you. I love you, too!)
Pyr-ready to trust and play, Big Boy

Hello favorite humans! My name is Teddy G! In my opinion, the ‘G’ stands for ‘Great,’ ‘Gorgeous,’ and ‘Grand’! However, it can also stand for ‘Growing,’ as I am still learning every day!

My Pyr-best foster parents have taught me a lot. Here are a few insights into Pyr-fun me.

“Teddy G. is happy, loving, and smart. He loves walks and is happiest on hikes and adventures with his humans, but he’s not all-go or non-stop.” (Whether relaxing indoors or exploring outside, I am happy as long as we are together!)

“Teddy G. has shown some signs of early resource guarding, but with help, we can curb these tendencies.” (As a puppy, I need to learn not to protect the things I cherish, such as toys and food. With time, playing the trade game, and consistency, I will grow out of these habits!)

“Teddy G loves treats. He knows ‘sit’ and is very proud of it! We are still working on ‘off’ and ‘stay’!” (I’m very treat motivated, so let’s keep learning together!)

“Teddy G is very polite when initiating playtime with the kitty and gets along with our guests. He also thinks brush time is a game, though this will probably improve with training.” (I love to play with my humans and my fellow furry housemates!)

In the beginning, it will be best if I am not around young children until I can learn to be my Pyr-self.
Ready for the big world in a loving fur-ever home!

Pyrly Great, Gorgeous and Grand, ❤️ Teddy G.

Do you have yummy food at your house? This is important because the GPRA vet says I’m almost just shy of two years old and need a lot of yummy food to weigh more than my current 50 lbs. The nice people who found me on their porch say I’m good with strangers, kids, cats, and dogs. Unfortunately, their dogs don’t like me so GPRA’s helping me find a new home. The only other things I know about myself is that it’s OK to hold my collar and it’s SUPER OK to pet me anywhere. Dogs who get pet all the time sure are lucky. And people who can snuggle with a loving Pyr who’s so grateful for being rescued are really lucky, too. If you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below, then maybe I can be that Pyr and you can be that person?

Choose me and if you keep my name, it’ll be summer all the time! I’m a year old and a mere 50 lbs., so far. Some very nice strangers have been feeding and petting me but now it’s time to find my forever family. They say I’m a good girl who showed up knowing how to use the doggy door and walk on a leash. Supposedly humans like it when dogs do these things the same way they like dogs to be playful, calm, and not afraid of things. I check those boxes, if they’re on your Pyr wish list. Oh, and on the outside chance you have goats, we should get along fine. I’m very happy the people I’m “visiting” never asked me to go in a crate, I don’t know if I’d like that or not. However, I do like chewing on bones and balls. There’s one thing I’m not sure of, and it could mean I’ll need an extra understanding family: my temporary family says maybe my ears don’t work. Personally, I disagree because it feels awesome when people scratch them! Still, since I respond more to stomping on the floor than sounds, could be I’m the perfect dog for a noisy household! If you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below, the GPRA folks will probably need more. Besides, my paws are tired from typing all these words one letter at time. Heading out to play instead!

Hello, hello, hello!  I am Bubby, a 6 mth old happy-go-lucky boy, and a hefty 50 lbs. I think I am going to be a big fella. I am super sweet and love people of all sizes. Especially if they want to run and play. I like to hang out with other furries too. Dogs or cats, they are all good for me. I know my house manners and when to let you know that I need to go out. I am discovering that sofas are super awesome…especially when sitting next to someone to cuddle with. If you would like a super lovey sofa snuggler like me, please let GPRA know at info@greatpyratlanta.com.
