Louie Linus, here! With a name like mine, “L” has got to be my favorite letter! Funny enough, my foster mama says I’m laid back. I like to lumber about the yard and lean my head down to sniff at things. I’m gentle like a lullaby too. I can’t sing you to sleep, but I will stay by your side. Foster Mom noticed I like to follow my foster family around the house like a lamb after his shepherd. I’m also quiet like a little leaf falling from a tree. As long as you’re lavishing attention on me in the form of chin scratches, I’m content. When we’re not lazing in the living room, I do love to stretch my legs and go on a walk. I’m a likable lad who can’t wait to get ladles of love and extra helpings of snuggles from my new family!

Hi, I’m Lulu. I’m happy to make your acquaintance. In some languages, my name means pearl, and I am kind of like a pearl in that I take a lot of time to show my shine and personality because I’m very shy. Just as a pearl forms in the stillness of the sea, I like a quiet home. Unexpected noises tend to startle me. My name also means peaceful and calm, and that’s my motto for life. I like tranquil walks on the leash, and I walk steadily too; however, if a person or another animal passes by, I get very scared and will want to go back home. I’m learning, though. I used to be frightened by cars passing by, but since my foster mama walks me daily, I have gotten used to vehicles. I need time and practice to get desensitized to the outside world. When new people come to my home, I take a few days to get used to them as well. Lulu can be slang for impressive too. My outstanding qualities are that I am housetrained and potty-trained. When I need to go outside, I nudge my nose against the doorknob to let you know it’s time. And, I don’t mind being bathed or brushed, so you can always count on me looking my best! Lulu also means precious, and my foster family would agree that I am just that! My foster mom’s favorite thing about me is how much I love structure and routines. Every day, I like to curl up in my dad’s office, and every night, I love to sleep in my special dog bed as Mom and Dad watch TV. Earning my love and trust will be a process, and my personality is still coming out little by little as my foster family continues this journey with me. I’m a sweet girl who needs a lot of love and a family who is dedicated to helping me slowly but surely work through my fears. Foster Mom says I deserve the pyr-fect family; could it be you?

Hellos. I am Nellie. Although timid, GPRA is helping me return to Great Pyrenees status. Unfortunately, since I am pretty scared of men, GPRA thinks I was abused or hurt at some point in my past life. Yes, I know it’s sad, but I’m doing my best to start the next chapter. Lucky for me, GPRA’s trainer is working with me and building my confidence and trust. Those yummy treats and lots of patience will help me open my Pyr heart again.
Here are a few things that GPRA’s volunteers know about me.
“Nellie is a sweet and curly angel. Her confidence grows each day!”
“Nellie is a little shy at first but warms up when she gets to know you. She is a curly-haired beauty and super sweet!”
“She is making great strides and even let me clean out her ears.”
“Nellie had the best time romping around the play yard with Festus. Both dogs enjoyed running back and forth together along the fence. (Yep, having a play buddy is fantastic and gives me a sense of security, too!)
So, that’s a bit of me. As my Pyr-confidence and happiness increase, I will keep you updated on my progress.
Pyrly yours, Nellie

Do I look familiar? I mean other than resembling all Pyrs in general? My first GPRA name was Noelle and I’m back now because my elderly mom wants me to have a home more suited to this 4-year-old, 76 lb girl. I’m housetrained and good with adults and children, and like hanging out with my fosters on the couch. Other dogs are fine, I play with them now and then, but I bet I’d like being an only dog, too. Oh, and apparently, I’m very laid back at home and on the leash, that is until the UPS truck shows up. That big brown thing gets every bark in me!  You can leave me home alone, but you should know open doors and fence gates are very appealing. Once loose, I’m much more likely to come when a woman calls me than a man. My best new owner will be dog-smart and very patient. Do you believe in me as much as I believe in you?

Hi, my name is Arno.  I am a sweet 3.5 year old Great Pyrenees that is a little underweight right now only being at 76 lbs.  As you can see my beautiful white coat is missing.  But do not worry, it will grow back quickly and more beautiful then ever before.  I am looking for a new family this holiday season to keep me and my belly warm.  I came into GPRA from a local shelter that knew I deserved a second chance.  I have been around new people who are showing me so much love that I just feel that I have to give it back ten folds.  I am good around other dogs that I have met and plan on being a best friend to my humans.  If you think you have the extra room in your heart and  home for me, contact GPRA today at info@greatpyratlanta.com.
