Hello, humans! Yeti Man here!  I’m a very loving and grateful boy! You see, if it were not for GPRA, I would not be here today as I was on the euthanasia list at the shelter. It is a horrible reality for many dogs like me. But, as you can see from my pictures, it is hard even to imagine such an ending for this happy, full of life and affectionate boy.
GPRA tells me that I am about to embark on a new beginning and lots of new learnings. Do you want to be my human who will guide me through all that is ahead? If yes, this makes me Pyr-excited. Here is what GPRA’s volunteers say about me.
“Yeti is tall, skinny, and has a coat more similar to a Labrador than a Great Pyrenees. He is very affectionate and loves to be pet, head to tail! He is curious when meeting other dogs and watches them with great interest. (It’s a whole new world out there for me, and I can not wait to explore it with my very own human.)
“Yeti easily jumps in and out of the car and prefers to lay down when the vehicle is moving. He is a little nervous, but this is understandable.”
“The leash is new to him, but he is learning quickly. Yeti will need an owner who will invest time in obedience training and introduce Yeti to new experiences. In return, Yeti Man will soak it all up with great happiness and affection.”
Pyr-ready for all that life has in store for me.
Your grateful boy, – Yeti Man

Good day! I’m your steadfast, reliable, and gentle giant, Fred.

I was rescued with my sister from an abusive and bad situation. I will spare you the details, but our living conditions were miserable.

Thankfully, GPRA came to our rescue. My sister already found her family, and I’m Pyr-happy for her. The last step in my journey to fur-ever is finding my family. Lucky for me, I have been with an incredible foster home, so I am now ready for my very own humans, home, and comfy dog bed.

Here are a few things that my foster family has learned about me.
“Fred is the best. He is laid-back, cautious, fairly quiet, and very easy-going. Fred’s trust and confidence grow each day.” (Yes, my Pyr-confidence is returning.)

“Fred is house-trained. He will stand by the door or by his humans when he needs to go outside.” (Yes, I am learning good house manners from my foster parents!)

“Fred is very docile and the sweetest boy. His personality will continue to blossom.” (Yes, it takes time to trust when other humans have mistreated you, but I’m starting to believe that everything is going to be okay.)

“Thunder scares Fred.” (Yes, I do not like those loud noises. As long as I have a safe hideaway, I will be just fine.)

“For being mistreated, it has been heartwarming to see Fred’s personality begin to shine through. He loves attention. Lots of petting and scratching will help to build his trust.” (Thank you for helping me on my way!)

Pyrly grateful, Fred

Hi. I am Jasper. Can I first share that my life completely changed one day. You see, I had been wandering on my own for a very long time – so long that my puppy collar was getting very tight on me. During those days, I was always searching for food and water. Someone even shot me. Yes, that was a bad day.

When some good humans discovered me wandering a neighborhood, they set out to capture me, which was no easy task. They literally saved my life. (Thank you.) Although getting caught was not what I thought I wanted, life with Rescue has been really good. Food and fresh water appear every day, kind words and affection are showered on me, and I am getting the best vet care. Well, I could do without the vet care, but I know it’s for my own good.

Would you believe that I am already walking on a leash and letting GPRA’s trainer fuss with me? He does this to learn more about me and to see how I interact with humans. I must be doing well for a young boy that has been on his own because everyone is amazed at my progress.

Just keep in mind that I have a lot to learn, and it will take time for me to trust. If you are willing to help me on my journey, I will be forever indebted to you.

Pyrly eager to live the good life. Jasper

Woof! Woof! Hello! I’m Wagner a thin fella about 4 years old and 77 lbs. GPRA found me at a shelter so nobody knows much about me yet…except that I am very sweet and gentle with people, but am not a fan of when other dogs get in my face. I think I am going to need some time learning to be a sofa surfer and enjoying all of the things I hear about living in a “house”. I have had my spa day and am looking gorgeous so, why don’t you think about adding me to your family? If so, please email info@greatpyratlanta.com or click “Apply to Adopt” below, I promise I won’t play hard to get!

Hi everyone, I’m Emma, a 5 yr old petite girl at only 77 lbs so that makes me a ‘Pocket Pyr’. While many people like the big pups, I am told there are some people who really prefer the slightly smaller version of a Great Pyrenees. I ride in the car really well, I’m well behaved and good on leash and very friendly. I am hoping to get my forever home soon so that I can enjoy all the upcoming Holiday activities I keep hearing people talk about. I am very thankful for the rescue group to help me get all cleaned up and pretty again. I promise I will be your most loyal friend. If you believe we were meant for each other, please contact GPRA today at info@greatpyratlanta.com
