Hey, y’all! How are you doing today? I am Gus. You are wondering why a handsome, young Pyr such as me is in Rescue. Well, to make a long story short, I was a bit too much for my previous family to train.

GPRA thinks that I will do best with an experienced Great Pyrenees owner, someone who will know how to work with my stubbornness and early stage of resource guarding.  It takes a consistent, gentle, and confident approach to teach Pyrs like me, but we will overcome. If you have had a similar Pyr, you understand. The cool part is that once I get over a few learning hurdles, I will be a Pyr-awesome boy!

While I am learning to trust my owners and what they are teaching me, GPRA recommends that my future home not have younger children. A home with only adults is probably best in the beginning.

Please have faith in me as I am only ten months old. Testing the boundaries is typical of young Pyrs like me. With dedicated time, lots of exercise, patience, training, and a confident and knowledgeable owner, I will transform into your faithful guardian.

One more thing, I am house trained and know commands such as sit, stay, come, off, and down. I like other dogs and cats but do not want them too close to my food bowl. Yes, I need to work on that, too.

Thank you for your understanding.

Wanting to be a good boy but still learning.
Pyrly yours, Gus

Hey, y’all! How are you today? I’m Bailey Barnacle, and you can call me Bailey. I am still a young boy learning how to be a well-mannered Pyr, but I’m learning fast and ready for my new life!

I was surrendered because the recovery center where I lived closed. My job at the center was to brighten everyone’s day. Although I was only there a short time, I think I did an excellent job at adding lots of joy.

My foster mom describes me as a charming and beautiful boy that loves affection. Many times, she finds me right by her side when we are in the house together. I’m house-trained, easy-going with other dogs and cats, and enjoy having a place where I can run around, explore and get exercise. Would you believe that I know commands such as sit, down, shake, come, and stay? (Well, I’m not always good with the stay command, but I’m doing Pyr-awesome on learning the others!)

Have I convinced you that I am a Pyr-fect boy for your life? If yes, I cannot wait to meet you. Pyrly happy, Bailey.

Hello, I am Maggie Mango. I hope you are having a Pyr-tastic day!
Here are a few things my foster mom shared with GPRA.
“Maggie is a cuddler, curious, smart, cautious, loving, and devoted. Maggie is also still puppyish in many ways.” (Yes, I have many excellent Great Pyrenees qualities, and I’m also still learning how to trust and feel safe.)
“Maggie is leash trained and knows commands such as sit, stay, down, and off.” (I’m off to a great start and will need more obedience training to help young me grow up to be my best Pyr-self.)
“Maggie gets along with our dog and cat. (Having another fur-friend will be great! Then, I will have a playmate.)
“Maggie barks to go outside and paws the door to come in.” (Yes, I try to be a good girl.)
“Maggie needs someone who will devote the time to increasing her confidence and work with her as she adjusts to a new home.” (Time, lots of patience, and love are all I need. As my trust increases, so will my Pyr-confidence!)
“Maggie is a true guardian. She alerts us to visitors.” (I do my best to be a faithful guardian.)
I’m genuinely a sweet girl seeking a loving, understanding, and trusting owner who will be mine forever. Pyrly yours, Maggie

Hey, all. I am Charlotte. GPRA stepped up to rescue me after my previous owners no longer claimed me from the local shelter. You see, I got out and ended up in the shelter. At first, my owners claimed me. Sadly, the last time I escaped, they did not show up to get me. Thank you, GPRA!)

Since I am still a youngster, I have lots and lots to learn. GPRA says that I am a diamond in the rough because I’m such a fun, full-of-life, and gorgeous girl. They also said that I am a sweetheart that loves hugs. (Of course, I love hugs, I’m a Great Pyrenees!)

Obedience training, patience, consistency, lots of exercise, and routine will help me thrive and make you proud. If you put the time into teaching young me all I need to know now, you will have a well-mannered, devoted, and loyal guardian.

I’m proud to share that my leash walking skills are good and improving thanks to GPRA’s dog-loving walkers’ time and help. (These humans are Pyr-awesome!)

As I transition to my furever home and family, it will be best if I am the only dog in the house for a while as I am still learning proper manners with other dogs. Since I have not had any help in this area, it will only take me a short time to learn how to be my best Pyr-self! (Remember, I’m still learning and need your help!) Come meet me soon, because I will be snatched up quickly!
Pyrly yours, Charlotte

Max here to let y’all know that I am a survivor and have kept my Pyr smile, playfulness, and friendliness despite living through tough and hungry days. Long story short, I was pulled with other dogs from a neglect situation by Animal Control, and GPRA came to my rescue.  With time, I am hopeful that my tendencies to guard my bowl will fade away as I begin to trust that I will get more than enough food. However, I love other dogs and cats as we became good friends during our difficult days. After my hind leg was run over, it is a bit stiff, which only means that I may need a little help getting in and out of the vehicle, but so do most Pyrs.  If you are my forever, I will follow you all over the place, join you on car rides, and let you know every day how grateful I am to be in your loving, kind, and trusting care.

Looking forward to endless hugs, a cozy bed, and happier days… Max

I am Moose. It is quite the name, right? My prior family told GPRA that they could not keep me any longer. So, I am fortunate and thankful that Rescues such as GPRA help a perfect boy like me find another family. You see, I am ready to join any loving home because I am house trained, friendly, and get along well with other dogs and cats. What’s not to love already, right? Did you know that most Great Pyrenees have a zen-calm demeanor? Yep, I am an easy-going boy, but do not let my chill attitude fool you because I am also fun and playful. So, a fenced-in backyard would make your Moose boy very happy because I love hanging outside with my family and watching over everything. Looking forward to lots of hugs and pets from my new family… Your good boy, Moose.

Hellos!
I am Zeus, and everyone says that my charming smile fits my legendary name.

The first 18 months of my life have been a bit hard because I was tied outside a lot.  During that time, other dogs attacked me. As you can imagine, that was really hard on me, and I am anxious about new situations.  Trusting others will take time, and GPRA volunteers are already helping me.  When I first met them, they gave me chicken treats and showed me lots of affection. WOW, that is really great stuff, and I definitely want more of that kind of life!

Basically, I am a really good boy that needs time to learn how to be an inside dog, patience to teach me dog manners, and lots of love and hugs to build my trust.  In return, I will be your faithful companion and loyal guardian.

Looking for brighter days and a family that will love me forever.

– Zeus

I’m looking for a fresh start with a GPRA family. Or at least that’s what the humans say since I left my original home four times before I finally made it to here! Thank goodness the smart shelter people could read my mind. Of course, not all people speak Pyr, so I’ll speak English: I’m three-years-old, 85 lbs., and a sweet boy.  If this was a play, I’d have the easiest lines to memorize because that’s it, that’s all I know about myself. Now, if I was writing a play, I’d create a happy ending where I’m the center of attention and receive constant ear rubs. The “stage” would be a loving home with comfy dog beds (a.k.a. as my family), an overpacked, giant treat cabinet, and probably a fenced yard.

Who wouldn’t love this face? Maybe you already do and need some details to seal the deal? If that’s the case, let’s get to it!  I’m 1.5 years old, 85 lbs. and submissive to other dogs at the park. I suppose it’s good I get along with my own kind, but people are my favorite. Humans make me so happy I sometimes forget my manners and jump on them so they will hug and play with me. But the good news is, after you correct me, you can love on me with all four paws on the ground, too. How are we doing? Are you getting my dog bed ready yet? This might make you smile: I’m terrified of water hoses! Isn’t that silly? I run away as fast as I can when I see one. No idea why but let’s leave watering the yard or washing the car off our list of shared activities. Speaking of sharing, I’m learning to share my food, too so if you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us”, or choose “Apply to Adopt” below, I’ll happily give you some, if you want it.

Obviously, my name is familiar but keep reading and I bet you recognize part of my story, too. Let’s start with the easy stuff: I’m 1.5-years-old, weigh 85 lbs. and am friendly just like the cartoon Simba. I didn’t run away from home, though; my parents are moving overseas, and I’m not allowed on the plane. Right, same as Hotaru. Which means I’m also an outside dog who wasn’t house or crate trained. On the plus side, I love being pet and get along well with other dogs. My humans say food and attention are my top priorities. They also say I’m clingy and am very easy-going, which is silly because I don’t go anywhere, other than on leash walks.  I know the words “calm down” mean don’t play so hard. Which is OK, cuddling is just as much fun. Unfortunately, those two words don’t help when the thunder starts. But hey, this is kinda cool, I can open certain types of doorknobs with mouth and paws!
