You’ve heard of Fay Wray and Faye Dunaway, and now here’s your chance to have your very own Faye! This 2-year-old, 82 lb. girl with a famous name and huggable figure is very happy to be with GPRA. I know Pyrs are brave by nature, but I’ll admit, I was a little scared at the shelter. I didn’t really give the nice caretakers a chance to learn much about me, including what I’m like with other dogs. I cooperated with the humans, so that’s good news for my to-be-found foster and family, right? I guess emailing info@greatpyratlanta.com clicking “Contact Us” or choosing “Apply to Adopt” below is doing what people call “taking a leap of faith.” For me, I’d be happy taking a leap into your lap.

My road to GPRA came through the Gwinnett County animal shelter because this 6-year-old, 82 lb. girl angered one too many neighbors one too many times with her roaming ways. My former family chose the shelter instead of securing the property. To be fair, I have no idea how many milk bones it costs to build a fence so I’m taking a positive approach and looking forward instead of back! My foster mom says I’m slowly coming out of my shell, which is really funny because I’m not a turtle! Anyway, she says I just want to be with people, that I love treats (duh!), show no signs of aggression towards other dogs when we’re walking, and I really like the neighborhood kids. Apparently, I know some commands and in true Pyr form, I decide when to act like it. However, I’m consistent about two things: being brushed (great) and fireworks (awful, terrifying, please make it stop). It’s ok to leave me alone at home but I really prefer being with my humans and I’ve even started sleeping in my foster mom’s bedroom. What does your bedroom look like? Is there an empty Pyr spot waiting for me? If yes, please email info@greatpyratlanta.com or click “Apply to Adopt” below so we can see if it fits me.

Well, I’m only 3-years-old and a mere 82 lbs. but I’m ready for a big change in my life: I want to come inside. I could maybe use a few pounds, too but my main goal is to live in a house with ear rubs and treats and soft places to sleep. I was raised as a pasture dog and because I don’t know how to talk, I couldn’t tell my family how much I wanted to be with them. Also, my ears hurt all the time and while I don’t know why I was outside, the doctors have said they should be a whole lot better if I’m living indoors. In exchange, you’ll have a sweet, gentle, beautiful Pyr who loves animals, car rides, and people. I don’t react to other dogs when they pass through my paddock so maybe that means I like dogs, too! I’m kinda embarrassed to tell you I’m not housetrained. I know most dogs learn as puppies but remember, my family never brought me inside so…I’m going to need some patience and help in that area, too. I hope I’m not scaring you away, I just want to be honest because once I find you, I really want to keep you. Are you interested yet? If so, please email info@greatpyratlanta.com or click “Apply to Adopt” below.

Hey ya’ll, I’m 2-year-old Ryder and at only 82 lbs, yes, I would love to have dinner with you! And lunch. And breakfast. Snacks would be great, too! I bet you figured out my story, huh? That I used to be a shelter dog, GPRA saved me, and now the vet says I need to gain 12-15 lbs on my way to being a full-size Great Pyrenees? Yep, you are right. GPRA’s vet is so nice, I definitely want to follow her directions. I’m also ready to practice following all those other directions humans give like “sit”, “stay”, and “hug.” I am still learning what type of dog I really am and counting on a GPRA foster to help me “find myself” so I can also find my best furever family. If you want to help me on my journey of self-discovery, and feed me!—email info@greatpyratlanta.com or click the “Apply to Adopt” button below.

Helllloooo, I am Lily, a pretty girl that just made my way to GPRA. I am about 3 years old and weigh 82 lbs. A nice person heard that I was going to given away because… I didn’t want to guard any silly goats….or be tied up to be kept from roaming…so they came and got me. They took me to the vet and got me all fixed up and sent me here, to GPRA, to find me a wonderful home. I am learning about living inside, I spent my whole life outside and I can tell you, I am liking it! I am doing great with potty training and love my furry foster siblings.  I would really like to play with them and would love an fur-ever home with a sibling that wants to play too. Walking on a leash is a breeze and I will sit to take treats very gently.  I love, love, love getting pets all of the time.  My foster human tells me that it’s ok to take a break from pets now and again. I just love all of the attention I am getting. I think I like cats too. I met one in the yard today and wanted to get to know it better, but I don’t think it liked me much. Oh, and I discovered DOG BEDS today!!! Those are NICE! If you’d like to find out more about me, please contact GPRA today!  info@greatpyratlanta.com

Hi y’all, I am Edgar, “brother” to Winston. I am 4 years old and weigh about 82 lbs. We just arrived at GPRA after our new owner realized we were too much for him. We had a super duper home but a lot of sad things happened and our humans passed away. Our new owner was a bit of an older man and I think we were just too big for him. (I don’t think he’d ever seen such big fellas like us!) I have great house manners and I love to ride in the car. I am good with other dogs and people, big and small. Those kitty cats though, I just love to chase them. If you have time for some snuggles and cuddles for this big boy, please contact GPRA at info@greatpyratlanta.com.

Hi everyone! My name is Errol. I am a very sweet and handsome 5 year old fella and weigh about 100 lbs. When I got to GPRA, I was in rough shape and needed some TLC. I am all healed and am learning to trust people. I just love to be with people. I am great with kids and just happy to spend my day following you around. I do well on a leash and love to ride in the car. If you need a shadow, I’ll be there by your side. I am pretty good when introduced to other dogs and don’t mind sharing your affection, just don’t make me share my meals. I know, I know, the food is not going to run out. I forget that some times because I didn’t get enough before GPRA rescued me. It’s something I’m working on. If you think you can share your love with me, I’m the one for you! If you believe that you can provide all this for me, contact GPRA today for more information at info@greatpyratlanta.com

Hi there, I am the magnificent Magnus.  I am 3 years old and weight 82 lbs.
I came to GPRA after wandering on my own for a while and the local county animal control took me off the streets.   As you can see I went from Rags to Riches in a short time period. Thanks to GPRA, you can see my before picture when I was clearly a little dirty. They took me in, cleaned me up, gave me a pep talk and boom, I was placed into a wonderful foster family. I have a PYR foster brother and two of the cutest human toddlers that are teaching me what it it like to be part of a family. As you can see, I do enjoy my time around the pool and catching those rays on a sunny afternoon. I have great house manners and will be the perfect addition to your family. Contact GPRA today to learn more about me at info@greatpyratlanta.com
