I’m so excited to meet you, I can hardly bear it! It’s me, Bear Sawyer! I’m a sweet, baby bear who is a little shy, but I know I’ll warm up given time and lots of love. I warmed up to my GPRA friends pretty quickly! Real bears have a high IQ and are one of the most intelligent mammals. I’ve got a bear-like intelligence too because I know the commands: sit, stay, come, off, and down. I’m still a cub, though. Cub means puppy in bear language! Like all of us young pyrs, I need leash-training and potty-training. I still dig, chew, and am protective of home too. Positive reinforcement and slow introductions will help me grow into the pyr-fect adult! One thing I’m already good  at, though, is riding in the car. While some bears hibernate in the winter, this Bear is ready for a chilly car ride! I’m a happy, loving, and playful pyr pup who can’t wait to settle in for a long, cozy winter with you!

Rise and shine, my lovely pyr people! It’s Sampson, here, and did you know my name means sun? My foster mama says that my personality shines a little brighter each day as I learn how to be loved by my humans. At first, I was like a little ray of sunshine peeping out from the clouds because while I was curious about people, I was still a little shy of them. I’m a bit cautious even now of new people, but my foster family has earned my trust. They’ve given me lots of fun chew toys! Basically, my human family is the moon to my sun. I’m really in sync with them because I’ve learned that they are safe and love me very much. In my new home, I’d love for my humans to be home a lot, so we can bond and I can feel loved and protected. My favorite time to cuddle my humans is when the sun has set; I’m an evening snuggle bunny! When Foster Mama says, “Good Morning, Sunshine” and we go for a walk, I look to her for direction. Foster Mom says I’m still learning how to walk on a leash, but I do pretty good. I’m very curious about dogs and cats, and I try to play with them when I see them on our neighborhood walks. Walking is of the best-est activities under the sun! I’m a good car rider too, so we can put the top down and sunbathe a bit. Inside the home, I have a sunny disposition too. I like to nap near my people, and my foster family is so proud of the fact that I’m house-trained! Pottying outside in a sunny backyard just seems like the natural thing to do. I’m getting used to things like being brushed too. One funny thing about me is that I love treats and my food, but I don’t like to be watched while I eat. I just don’t like the spotlight, or sunlight, on me while I’m snacking. Please, take me home! I’ll be your sunshine in the rain and give you all the love I have in my big, pyr heart!

Hi folks!
We are Bilo and Bilu – the sweeter than honey bonded pair just waiting to meet you and stick to your heart.
Our owner had to surrender us because they weren’t able to care for us any longer. That makes us sad, because we love our humans and have so much love to give.
Since we just arrived, the GPRA folks are still getting to know us, but here are some things the fabulous volunteers have to say about us:
“precious pair”
“love to get loved on”
“beautiful and sweet”
Yes, we are blushing underneath our floof. What can we say? Come and meet us. We know we will add the love your home needs (x2!).

Bonded Pairs are adopt one and get the second one for half the adoption fee!

Well, I don’t have much to say about myself but fortunately the little bit I’ve overheard is all good. I’m 1-year-old and weigh 72 lbs, which means, given my height and size, this boy has room for about 20 more pounds worth of treats and healthy food! The shelter people say I am and let me quote them, so I get it right, “incredibly friendly, goofy, and happy”. To hear them tell it, I also have great leash manners. I’ll take the compliment even though I don’t know what a leash is. However, I know I like playing with other dogs, any size, boys and girls. Cats are fun, too.  Do you have other dogs? Or a cat? Or treats? These are all good reasons to please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us”, or choose “Apply to Adopt” below.

Isn’t Ellie the cutest name for 3-year-old, 72 lb. me who adores people and likes to flirt with men? I’m originally a Cleveland, GA farm dog and open to living anywhere with people, dogs, and kids who will love and play with me. I’ve heard of cats, maybe I’ll like them—when I finally meet one. I walk pretty well on a leash and love car rides! Although, I’d probably like them more if the human would let me drive. Yeah, I’m small, but I can see over the steering wheel just fine. Now, the crate is a different issue. NOT my thing at all. Now treats are good, much better than being confined. If you want to fall head-over-heels for a smaller Pyr who might need a little help learning house manners and loves belly rubs, please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below.
