Greetings, pyr friends! I’m Paizley, and I’m positively pleased to meet you! Fall is just around the corner, and I’m excited to curl up on the couch next to you like two pumpkins in the patch. I’m a little shy at first, but once I get to know you, we can nestle up together and watch the leaves fall. My foster mom says I’m as sweet as pumpkin pie spice, so I’m just wonderful with those little chestnuts you call children too. Humans are near and dear to my heart, but I like hanging around with other soft and cuddly friends as well like other dogs and cats. If you want to take our family, both human and fuzzy, on a walk in the crisp, fall air, I’m great on the leash! But, if you feel like staying in by the warm fire, that’s okay too. I like to go outside for frequent potty breaks, though, because I’m learning how to be potty-trained. Foster Mama says, I’m almost all the way house-trained! While we’re relaxing inside and waiting for the apple pie to bake, you could brush me. I do like being brushed because I love all the attention and pets you want to give me. I’m ready for sweater-weather, or snuggle-weather as I like to call, and if you are too, then take me home! We can watch Halloween movies and tell scary stories!

Hi, there, I’m Pongo! My name starts with the letter P, so, naturally, it’s my favorite letter! My foster mom says I’m sweet as Pie. Who doesn’t love pie? It’s warm and cozy, and that’s how I will make you feel when I snuggle up to you! My foster mom especially noted that when I’m with kids, it’s a Piece of cake because I love them so much. I don’t eat cake, but playing with some little human siblings would be fun! Foster Mama also says I’m just Peachy with other dogs. Peaches are soft and fuzzy, and I love all soft and fuzzy creatures, even cats! Outside of the house, I am very good on the leash. You might say I walk as smooth as mashed Potatoes. In the backyard, I do need a tall, privacy fence, though, because I can be an escape artist like a jumping Pinto bean and hop over a shorter fence. One thing I do great in the backyard, though, is go Potty! Foster mom says I’m almost all the way house-trained. If we need to take a ride, I am the good-est Pumpkin you ever did see in the car. And, if we’re going to the groomer, don’t worry, the Pear, I mean pair, of us will get along fine because I love being brushed! I’m one cute, goofy Peanut whose ready to come home with you. I promise, whether it’s my human family or my furry friends, we’ll all get along like Peas in a Pod!

Hi, I’m Kaia! Did you know my name is Hawaiian and means sea? In Hawaii, you can get to the different islands by boat. I’ve never traveled by boat, but I do love going places in the car. I also love seeing the world on foot, or on paw. Walking is one of my favorite activities! When we go for a stroll, we can say: “Aloha” to everyone we meet because I love people, especially kids, and other dogs too! “Aloha” can also mean love, and another thing I love to do is chew on bully sticks and chew toys. If I was in Hawaii, I’d say “Mahalo,” or thank you, if you gave me a chewy treat because I have very good manners. I am housetrained, and I even know some commands. I’m a very sweet girl who would love to become a part of your ohana, which is Hawaiian for family!

Willy Wonka here! How are you today? I’m great every day because I’m one lucky Pyr to have landed with GPRA. Sadly, I was on my final days in the Shelter last summer. And, without Rescue stepping up to help, I would no longer be here, which is a heartbreaking reality for many dogs. So, I am more than immensely grateful to GPRA!
I am now with a fantastic and fun foster family, and you will learn why at the end of my bio. Here is what my foster family knows about me.
“Willy Wonka is a cuddler, out-going, curious, friendly, and a shadow.” (Yes, I like following my humans wherever they go!)
“During the day, Willa Wonka is a couch potato.  However, he has spurts of energy, which subside after having an outlet for the energy by outside time or playtime with a favorite toy.”
“Willy Wonka has had some leash training. He does great on the leash until he gets excited and will benefit from continued leash work.” (I promise to work hard to continue learning good leash manners.)
“He is learning basic commands such as ‘sit.’ He knows ‘sit’ so well that he will just ‘sit’ to be happy! He also responds to ‘off’ and will respond to ‘come Willy’, so he is learning.” (Yep, I will sit all day long for those yummy treats!)
“Willy Wonka is house-trained and will paw at the door when he wants to go outside. He is loving life as the only pet in his foster home.”
“Willa Wonka loves car rides and even watches TV.” (What do you like watching on TV because I will be right by your side!)
“My favorite things about Willy Wonka are his smile and demeanor. This boy wants to give love. He will sit and look at you with adoring eyes and give his Pyr paw. He is a very good-natured dog and makes me smile every day.” (You make me smile, too! Thank you for being there for me!)
Now, drum roll, please. Would you believe my foster Dad wrote me a song? How great is that, right?
You will need to sing the song to the tune of Gene Wilder’s “Pure Imagination” from the movie “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.”
🎶 🎶 🎶
Come adopt me, And you’ll be
In a world of PYR-imagination
Take me home, and you’ll see
I’m the PYR of your imagination
We’ll begin, as just friends
Traveling in the car of my embracer
What you’ll see will defy explanation
If you want to view PYR-adise
Simply look around and view me
Anything you want to do, I want to do it
Wanna change my life?
Then let’s do it!
There is no life I know
To compare with PYR-imagination
Living with me and you’ll be free
If you always remember to brush me!
Your Pyr-imagination boy, Willy Wonka

Hi! I’m Lone Ranger, but I don’t want to be alone anymore! I want a family who will give me lots of love. Like any good ranger, I’m on the lookout for the pyr-fect family for me. Luckily, I’ll be easy to match because I’m great with kids and people. Plus, I’m house-trained which makes me an extra good boy! Us rangers tend to be well-acquainted with fuzzy creatures, and I’m no exception. I LOVE other dogs. Playing and socializing with other dogs is the best! This Lone Ranger is ready to hang up his hat of solitude. It would be AMAZING to have another doggy pal in my home to be my fur-ever friend! My new doggy brother or sister and I can play in the backyard. I do need a 6-foot fence to stay safe because I can get over a shorter one like most of my pyr brethren. I’m curious about kitty-cats too, so we probably would get along well. When we go out on a nature walk, I can use my ranger skills to show you the sights. And, you’ll never have to worry about me because I’m good on a leash and don’t pull. After taking in the fresh air, we can hop in the car and head back to our home on the range. I’m an excellent car rider and enjoy sticking my head out the window to feel the autumn breeze in my fur. They say home is where you hang your hat, or your leash in the case of us dogs. Take me home, and we’ll snuggle together as it gets colder outside.

Hello, Hello! Dante and I came to GPRA together. We love being together but we’re not bonded and can be adopted to different families.

We both are goofy, grateful, and playful!

Dante: Thanks to GPRA, we are no longer abandoned Pyrs living on our own!
Simon: Yes, abandoned! After our previous owner moved away, we were left all alone!

Dante: Yes, left to fend for ourselves! But, thanks to a lovely lady who found us, we now get a second chance at living a safe and loving life!

Simon: As Pyrs, we are resourceful and intelligent and found shelter for ourselves under a trailer. The trailer provided refuge from the heat and rain, but it was not cozy.

Dante: Do you think you can give us a cozy home with our very own dog beds and food bowls?

Simon: Dante, can you even imagine sleeping in a dog bed?

Dante: Since we had each other, life on our own was ok, because we knew of nothing else. Although, finding food was not easy. Now that we are with GPRA, food and fresh water arrive twice each day. Life is definitely looking Pyr-tastic!

Simon: The one good thing about life on our own was that I had Dante, and we played together a lot! You see, I can be a little skittish! GPRA learned this when they arrived to save us.

Dante: Yes, Simon is a bit more cautious, but he knows a good human when he sees one. We knew the GPRA volunteer had arrived to help us, so we eagerly jumped right into the van and were excellent travelers.

Simon: Not bad for life on our own Pyrs, right? Yep, we are awesome boys!

Dante: We hope to meet our future family soon!

Your Pyr-fun and goofy boys, Dante and Simon

Hi, I’m, Ghost, your friendly Pry!
Part of my story is sad, but the other part is wonderful because of my guardian angel.
Thanks to the watchful eyes of my guardian angel, who lived next door, she brought me food and water where I lived tied up in a plastic shed. After multiple attempts, my guardian angel finally convinced my neglectful owner to surrender me. I hope every neglected dog has someone who will never give up on them. Without the kindness and persistence of my guardian angel and GPRA, I would never have had a chance at a good life.
Here are a few things that GPRA has learned about me.
“Ghost is a sweet and cuddly dog. Sadly, he was tied up in a backyard shed.” (Yes, after living tied up, I have still kept my Pyr optimism and good heart. I also have lots of stored up energy and love running around.)
“Ghost will love having a fenced-in backyard and another dog his equal so that he has a playmate.” (A fenced-in backyard is high on my list!)
Ghost is still learning leash manners and is a work in progress. (Yes, I have good days and days where I can do better with the leash thing.)
“Ghost is friendly, playful, and has lots of energy.” (As a young Pyr, I’m at the perfect age for obedience training. Remember, time invested in young Ghost will help me grow up to be a well-mannered Great Pyrenees. I want to make you proud!)
Looking forward to car rides, walks in the park, watching movies together, celebrating birthdays, and everything else a family does with their Great Pyrenees.
Forever grateful and Pyr-excited about a new life,
Ghost

I am Celeste and a bit sad that I have to seek yet another home and family.  My previous owners are expecting their second child and do not feel they have the time for me.  I understand. Since I have many great dog qualities, such as being friendly, active, obedient, and playful, I am hopeful. Hearing that I can be a bit noisy is understandable because I have Great Pyrenees in me. Other great things about 8 1/2-year-old me are that I am house trained, walk great on a leash, am great with kids, cats, dogs, and can be grabbed by my collar and touched anywhere. Although I am crate trained, I prefer minimal time there because I am active and want to play a lot, so a fenced-in backyard would be an excellent thing. Exercise and outdoor time to play will also help my tendencies to chew on things. Yes, it’s a dog thing, and I’m sorry about that.

I also know my mom is a Great Pyrenees, my dad is a Kuvacz Shepherd Mix and I am just a great dog eagerly seeking a third chance… Celeste

Hi! I’m Stacey! Here is what I know about myself so far: I walk great on a leash, no pulling; can easily be taken to public places; I like car rides and love playing with other dogs. I’m absolutely great with cats and do not mind my foster mom’s bunnies or chickens. I LOOOOOOVE to be pet and cuddled. I like being brushed and groomed, can be touched everywhere. My curly fur is growing back nicely, I had lost a lot after having puppies (in June) due to the hormonal changes in my body. I’m very friendly with new people.
I would benefit from a experienced pyr owner who will teach me that I don’t have to guard my food, the habit I kept from my stray days. I was found as a stray on the run with my two 8ish months old puppies and was pregnant again. I felt like I needed to protect my food. I will do better in a family with older kids. I have so much love to give. Please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below.

This is my story: people say I’m very sweet, very skittish, and very underweight. I’m 65 lbs., which is too thin for a four-year-old girl. The end. I wish I could tell you more because I really want to live with people and the Pyr network says humans like reading about us. Oh, I had puppies recently. They all have homes now, so I guess it’s my turn. Will you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below?
