The best things in life are marbled, including me! My name’s Marble, and just like marbled beef, I’m a little fancy because I already know some tricks like “sit” and “paw.” I’m such a good listener because I adore people. Humans love to pet my marble white fur which is great because getting pets is my favorite! While I haven’t walked on many marble floors, I totally could because I walk well on the leash. As I’m still a young pyr boy, I have good energy and enjoy playing. I’ll make my zoomies across the yard faster than you can play a game of marbles! You can also rely on marble to make strong buildings, and you can rely on me too because I’m basically housetrained. I haven’t had any accidents in my area! Marble sculptures sure make your house pretty, but this Marble pyr will brighten your home with lots of love. Think about adopting me, today!

Hello, everyone! I’m Lady A, and it is absolutely awesome to meet you! I’m a young pyr lady who is looking to be adored and cared for by her new family. Foster Mama says I have an aptitude for sweetness, and my loving attitude is starting to shine through each day. I’ll admit that I’m quite shy which makes me a little awkward in social situations, but my foster family is helping me learn that most people and dogs are really amiable and friendly. Foster Mom also tells me that I have an abundance of potential. I really want to play with other dogs and be affectionate with other people, and I know it will just take time and practice. When I’m in the yard by myself, I am an ardent runner. Playing and zooming around the yard is so much fun! While I’m still learning how to walk on the leash, I am trying to copy how to my foster siblings do it, so I know I’ll be an amazing leash-walker one day soon. My most admirable quality is that I am already adept at pottying outside which means I’m house trained! Lady A stands for Lady Adaptable because I’m learning new things every day, and I can’t wait to come home with you to keep learning what it means to be a part of a family.

Hey, my pyr rock ‘n’ rollers! It’s Jimi Hendrix here, and while I’m named after a rocker, I’m a gentle soul. My GPRA transporter says I can be touched all over, and I take treats very gently. My namesake played the electric guitar, and one thing that electrifies my spirit is ear scratches. I love them! And, belly rubs make me want to sing! Jimi got his kicks by strumming on his guitar, but I get joy from being near my humans. While I’m a little shy at first, I warm up very quickly. I liked snuggling close to my GPRA transporter for the whole drive. Once we arrived, I got on the leash. I’m still learning how to walk on the leash, but Jimi didn’t learn to play the guitar in a day. I’ll learn how to leash-walk with time too! One fun fact about Jimi Hendrix is he was 5 feet and 10 inches tall which is pretty tall. And, one fun fact about me is that I’m a pocket pyr which means I’m on the smaller side for a male pyr. I may not be able to play the guitar like Jimi, but I’ll give you all the sweetness in the world. You saying, “Let’s go home” would be music to my ears!

Is it my turn? Okay, here goes. I am Willow Walker, and I wish for a do-over and second chance to have a great life. But, of course, we all wish for that at some point in our lives, right?

As a young Pyr, I still need dedicated time, patience, and training from my owners. So what else can I share? I am housetrained and love car rides, and my favorite place is the backyard, which I call my Pyr-happy place. My previous family taught me the trade game, which means that if you need to take something away from me, it is best to trade it with something else. GPRA will show you how to play the trade game and explain why it is helpful to all dogs.

Here’s what GPRA’s wonderful walkers have learned about me.
“Willow is smart, gentle, friendly, active, and playful. Although somewhat shy at first, she warms up quickly and shares her Pyr-affection.”

“Willow is a sweetheart and joy to walk. Although she pulls a bit on leash walks, she will continue learning from dedicated leash training.” (I will do my best to learn good leash manners. If you bring some yummy treats on our walks, I think I will learn even faster!)

“Willow is friendly with other dogs she meets, trading sniffs and tail wags. Willow’s good looks and tall, lean frame make her a showstopper! (Why, thank you! Can you keep me brushed out so that I continue looking fabulous?)

GPRA recommends that Willow’s home have children 10+ years old.

Pyr-grateful for another chance, Willow Walker

Hi, there! I am Pyr Brida (Bree-duh). Thanks to my foster family, I’m ready to be adopted and loved fur-ever! Here is what they know about me.
“Brida is extremely lovable with her humans and great with other dogs. Her favorite thing is to rest her head on her humans. If you hold her head in your hands, she will be the happiest Pyr in the world.” (The human love thing is the best, and I cannot get enough.)
“Brida is a champion leash walker.” (Aww. thank you. I try to be a good girl and please my humans.)
“Drum roll, please… Brida is officially house-trained! 🎉🎉  Next, we are working on basic commands with Brida, such as “sit,” “stay,” and “wait.” (I am one grateful Pyr. My foster family is investing a lot of time to get me ready for my fur-ever family.)
“Brida loves to play but can also be super chill.” (Yep, Pyrs like to have fun but can also zen out.)
“Our only caution to her future family is that Brida will look for an opportunity to escape through an open door. So, her future family will need to be extra careful to ensure she does not get out.” (Yep, this is my work in progress. Lucky for me, my humans are doing everything possible to keep me safe. In time, I will learn that my home is the only place I want to be.)
Your Pyr-fun girl, Brida

Hey, all! I am the adorable Snoopy Brown! Would you believe that I was a homeless, wandering pup? Yes, I was! Those were scary days, and I never want to do that again. But, lucky for me, GPRA promises that I will never be on my own again.

My foster family is teaching me lots of great things! They say that I am a “work in progress.” Yep, that’s typical for young dogs. Just remember that ‘progress’ is the keyword! This Snoopy girl is super grateful to them, and I am working hard to get ready for my big adoption day!

Here are a few things my foster family has learned about me.

“Snoopy is highly active. She is very playful and good with teenage kids and their friends. Snoopy knows ‘sit,’ ‘no,’ ‘potty,’ and ‘come.'” (Whether it is with commands or playing with humans, I do my best to be the very best Pyr-girl I can be. Do you like to play, too?)

“Snoopy has figured out our potty time routine. Although I have not tried grooming yet, we can touch her anywhere. When outside, she does not try to break out by digging under or jumping the fence. While walking, she does pull on the leash. She will need leash training.” (I am open to all the love my humans can give me! When walking on a leash, I can get a bit excited! All I want to do is GO, GO, GO! I hope my future family is ready for lots of walking adventures together! No worries, I will learn the leash thing!)

“Snoopy has taken some time to warm up to us but has been coming around every day. (Being in a new home was scary! However, my foster family is super kind to me, so I am beginning to trust, and my fun personality is starting to shine through!)

“Snoopy is a bit protective of her food bowl and eats very fast, but she can be talked down from eating from one of my other dogs’ bowls.” (During my homeless days, I learned that food is something to gulp because I never knew if I would have another meal. With time, I will trust that my tummy will be full and satisfied every day.)

Pyr-grateful for a new start, Snoopy Brown

Ever heard that saying about kids being blank slates? Well, I’m the puppy version of that idea. I’m about six-months-old and 60 lbs. so I have a lot to learn. Do you think you can help me discover my favorite kinds of treats? Or learn how to live with you inside but go potty outside? Oh, oh, and I want to find out if I like toys, car rides, leash walks, kids, cats, or maybe my best friend will be a bunny? Yeah, I’m open to all kinds of new experiences as long as they happen with loving, safe people in my new home. Will you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below so we can start all these awesome adventures?

I like swimming! Yeah, it’s unusual for a Great Pyrenees but it’s true for this guy. In my short 10 months I’ve made it to 60lbs., learned how to stay in a crate, potty outside, and ride well in the car. But, I can’t do doctor stuff and that’s what my owner needs most now. I really want my next home to be forever, so I’ll share some private stuff, too. For example, being less than a year old, I still get excited with strangers, need better leash manners, and some socialization with other dogs. I play pretty well most of the time but can get a tad bossy. I’m also a bit protective of my food and personal space. So, I’m looking for a dog-smart human to make sure I stick to the rules until they all become good habits. If you want a loyal, loving, puppy you can guide and shape into the dog of your dreams, I might be him! Please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below so we can meet. There’s no obligation but some treats would be nice.
