Hellos! I am Balto. By now, you know I was impounded due to neglect. Yes, my early years were very hard. Thankfully, GPRA came to my rescue.

If the name Balto is not familiar, let me share the story. Balto was the lead dog of a heroic dog sled team that ran through harsh winter conditions and delivered desperately needed medicine during the 1925 diphtheria epidemic in Alaska. (So, yes, Balto is my hero.)

My wonderful foster mom shared lots of information about me with GPRA. Here are a few things.
“Balto is sweet and has beautiful blue eyes.” (Thank you. Everyone always comments on my baby blues.)

” Balto is energetic, very friendly, affectionate, athletic, and submissive.” (Yes, I am a wonderful boy!)

“Balto walks well on a leash. He does not pull and is friendly towards other walkers. He can get a bit excited when meeting other dogs.” (Yes, I know; but, I’m just so excited to be living a whole new life. With your help and training, it will only take me a short time to improve on my manners.)

“Balto loves kids but may overpower younger kids.” (Yep, I get a bit excited when I see my favorite younger humans. With consistency, patience, and training, my manners will improve, and I will learn to be more careful.)

“Balto is a velcro dog. He loves to be near you all the time.” (I am grateful to be with loving humans.)

“Balto is not afraid of anything.” (I’m trying to live up to my namesake’s heroic story.)

Pyrly-destined to be your hero, Balto

I am the sweet and lovely Galaxy.  My dainty and ladylike demeanor charms everyone. After saying goodbye to my puppies and their daddy, adjusting to life on my own has been stressful, and I do not like being alone very long. It will help me if my human is home with me. Having another fur-sibling may also help.
Everyone, including GPRA’s trainer, says that I am an incredibly kind and loving girl. All I need is someone to build up my Pyr confidence and give me as much love and affection as possible.  A very secure fenced-in backyard will provide me with essential exercise. Still, while I am there, I will need close supervision as I may try to escape.  With time, I am sure that my backyard will be the only home for me.
Other Pyrs have told me all about the puppuccinos at Starbucks. Yes, I know dogs should not have sugar, but I hope my new family might consider treating me every once in a while during our car rides together. Trust me, you are getting a total sweetheart in me. All I need is careful supervision, lots of love, and reassurance that everything will be just fine.
Affectionately yours, Galaxy

Hello, my name is Bella T.  I am around 5 years old and a little on the smaller side at 74 lbs.  I am a shy girl at first when you meet me however, once I warm up to you, we will be best of friends.  I have been in a home but I was not socially accepted into the family so I spent a lot of time on my own.  This new group I joined is helping me build my confidence and teaching me how to make new friends.  I know in a very short time, I will be the best PYR thanks to my great foster family.  I already have good house manners and I am pretty laid back too.  If you are interested in finding out more about me, contact GPRA today at info@greatpyratlanta.com.
