Hello, Hello! Simon 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, Cootie is my name. Yep, someone named me Cootie. As long as I have a loving human calling me Cootie, I will be your faithful guardian.
Since I am only two years old and have already been a momma, I’m excited to find my very own Pry-ever human family!
My previous family describes me as a family dog. Cats are cool, and I love children. A backyard that allows me to run around and get out all of my teenage energy is an ideal thing. If you do not have a backyard, count on me as your walking buddy. Just know, I still need time to improve on my leash manners. Be sure to walk me early in the morning or the evening when hot summer days have cooled down. Because of my double coat, humans need to be careful not to overdo activities with their Pyrs in the summer heat.
Additional training will help me grow up to be a well-mannered girl. If there are other dogs in the house, be sure to feed us separately and pick up food bowls after eating because I do not like sharing my food bowl. Yes, this is an area for improvement, and with some help from my humans, I will do better. You see, Great Pyrenees are people-pleasing, big loves that want to do the right thing. I’m already doing quite well with commands such as “sit,” “stay,” “off,” and “down.”
Here’s what my foster family said about me. As they learn more, I will update you.
“Cootie is a very loving dog. She is good with adults, kids, cats, and other dogs. She also understands ‘no’ and ‘heel’ when she is on leash.”
Are you ready to get some love from this Cootie girl?

Pyrly yours, Cootie ♥️

Hi, Saint is my name. I am back with GPRA to overcome some learning hurdles and behavior patterns. To let you know that I have many excellent Great Pyrenees qualities, let’s start with the good stuff. My previous owners say I am an absolutely fabulous, fantastic, affectionate, playful, and charismatic dog. This is all good stuff, right? An experienced Great Pyrenees owner will be the best match to continue working with me to address my resource guarding tendencies. I do really well with other dogs and cats. Children are my favorite, and I adore them. It may be best, however, if the children of the house are older.

With your help and time, I will overcome. Still learning how to be a better boy…Saint

Millie Joy here, and I really love my name, do you? I am back with Rescue because I have some learning to do but so does everyone, right? You see, I am still a little possessive of my food bowl and territorial with my house.

Many Great Pyrenees have similar learning hurdles, and there are countless success stories out there. Just ask GPRA. I do my best to protect the things that I treasure, but I need to be less enthusiastic about this job. In the beginning, my forever home should not have other cats or dogs. What else can I share…well, a fenced-in backyard is also recommended for exercise until I learn better leash manners.

Oh, I almost forgot to share with you that I am very affectionate, loving, and gentle with children and really miss daily hugs and treats and being part of a family. Yes, I have some learning to do, and consistency and patience will help me. GPRA tells me that my family is out there.

Still waiting for my forever and another chance at a happily ever after…Mille Joy

It’s moving time, which is a bit stressful for a 3-year-old, 75 lb. boy leaving the only doghouse he’s ever known. I’m not a livestock guardian but so far, I’ve always lived outside. Still, I know I’m good with kids, dogs, and cats—who, by the way, seem to be very small animals. Thunderstorms send me under the deck or into my doghouse. But, if you have the patience and understanding to help me become an inside dog, it might be nice hiding from those loud noises with you instead. It’s kinda’ discouraging having so little to tell you, especially looking at what some of my page-mates are sharing. I just need a chance, so if you have any to spare, please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us”, or choose “Apply to Adopt” below.

Any chance you need a Great Pyrenees? Well, let me rephrase, everyone NEEDS a Pyr, I should ask if you need me?  Sometimes forever is shorter than a Pyr thinks it will be. Life changed for this 2.5-year-old, 75 lb. girl when unexpected things happened for my GPRA mom and dad. There’s no deep drama or anger, it’s just life. Tearfully, they’re trusting GPRA to find me a new, safe home. According to mom, I’m very sweet, very social, love and protect my people & property and am great with other dogs. I don’t love human puppies (I think they’re called “babies”) and like so many dogs, thunder and lightning scare me. Oh, and this is kind of silly, but I don’t like being in the rain when it’s dark. Daylight rain is OK, I mean, it’s wet but not upsetting. If you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below, the GPRA adoption team will tell you about my hips. The car accident is long gone but I need a family who can adjust to my physical abilities the same way I am.

Moving day is approaching and I still need a destination. Hopefully it’ll be someplace I can stay a long time since I’m only 13 months old and where there’s a lot of treats because I’m only 75 lbs.  If we were on Zoom right now, you could ask me questions but since this is a one-way screen, here are my answers to questions you might ask: yes, I’m good with kids, dogs, and cats (until they approach my food); I’m potty trained to puppy pads and the back yard; and I only pull on the leash when I’m excited about something. Oh, and I talk back to thunder. Well, guess we would’ve had a short Zoom call after all since I just ran out of stuff to talk about. Guess this is a good time to ask you to please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below so we can keep the conversation going.

Any chance your favorite cookies are Oreos and you want a Pyr that looks like the reverse of your favorite cookie?  If so, this 4-year-old, 75 lb. boy is the GPRA rescue you’ve been waiting for! I’m good with kids, dogs, cats, and leash walking. Get this, I even have this special harness to run next to you safely while you ride your bike. We can stay healthy together! And as if that’s not cool enough, I stand at the door and “talk” when I need to go outside, rarely bark, and will head straight to my people for comfort when I hear gunshots or fireworks. Want to meet for some milk(bones) and cookies? I know, bad joke but I couldn’t resist.

When my travel partner’s human reclaimed him from the shelter, this 1-year-old, 75 lb. girl needed a new friend. So, here I am, paws crossed, hoping GPRA goes one step better and finds me a new family! I’ve heard I’m good with people and I really liked my friend who went home so maybe that means I can get along with your dog, too? The saying “knowledge is power” makes me wish I knew more about myself but I’ll just have to hope my giant wish for my very own last name is powerful enough to get you to please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below.
