Winter Greetings, my pyr friends! Us pyrs sure love this chilly weather. My foster mama says I absolutely adore being outside in the cold and exploring the backyard. It’s fun to bark out there too! Classic pyr, am I right? I have some new foster doggy siblings, and I enjoy being around them as well. When Foster Mom wants me to come back inside, she calls my name, and I listen and go to her. See, I’m a good boy! Because I listen so well, I know I’ll be house-trained in no time. I’m almost there! In the house, I just want to be near my humans. Everyone who meets me talks about how sweet and affectionate I am. They even say I’m the epitome of the pyr’s nickname: The Gentle Giant. Gosh, I’m blushing! Being a gentle giant, I am very good with kids; I love those little critters. I can’t wait to come home with you, and guess what? I’m an excellent car rider, so I’ll jump right in!

Big Girl here… but you can call me B.G. (or maybe BeeGee?).

I am a very friendly gal looking for my forever family. I lived on a farm, but farm life can be lonely, and I’m told my personality is simply bubbling! My friends here at GPRA said they will help me find a home!
Here are some lyrics I heard on my drive over that sum up what I want to say:
“Nobody gets too much heaven no more, it’s harder to come by, I’m waitin’ in line”
So
“How deep is your love? I really mean to learn.”
Because
“If I can’t have you, I don’t want nobody else…”
And
“You don’t know what it’s like, to love somebody, the way I’ll love you.”


So drop what you are doing, and “Run to Me”!

Hi, I’m Alaska Lilly, and my GPRA transporter thinks I fit my namesake just fine! Alaska means “The Great Land,” and I’ve been told I’m one great dog. Dogs are really important in Alaska; in fact, the state sport is dog mushing. I’ve never been on a dog sled team, but I’m very good on the leash. Those dogs have to run over a lot of snow and even avoid volcanoes because there are over 100 in Alaska. I’m not like a volcano at all, though, because I’m as sweet as baked Alaska! Dog sled teams must get so tired avoiding volcanoes and going over all that ice. They should just get places by riding in the car like me! My GPRA transporter says I’m an excellent car rider, and I jump right in. You don’t have to go to Alaska for a PYR who will lean on you and snuggle because I’m right here and ready to come home!

Hello, Pyr People! It’s your girl, Sasha, here, and I’m absolutely thrilled to meet you. Do you know my name means “helper of mankind”? I’m great at helping people be happy because I’m so loving and affectionate. My GPRA friends can tell you that there’s nothing I love more than a good belly rub. Sometimes, I like to just lay down or sit beside you and get all the cuddles you can give me! I can also help you blow off steam by having you play ball with me. Chasing tennis balls is my favorite thing to do after snuggling! If you want to get refreshed on a nice long walk, I can help you do that too. I love taking walks; they are very fun and exciting. The holidays are coming, so you might want to hit up a coffee shop drive-through. I’m in because I’m an excellent car rider, and I enjoy seeing the sights! When we get home, you can brush my beautiful fur as we get cozy on the couch. I like being groomed! I’m such a happy girl just waiting for my fur-ever home. I can’t imagine a better start to the most wonderful time of the year than coming home with you!

Hey, y’all! I am Gus. Thanks to my BEST-ever foster mom, who has taught me so much, my Pyr confidence and trust are back! My foster mom also says that I am growing up, and she is very proud of me!
GPRA knows that I will continue to blossom with an experienced Great Pyrenees owner. It will take a consistent, gentle, and confident approach that includes lots of positive reinforcement to help me continue learning. If you tell me I’m a ‘very good boy” and pet me a lot, I will continue to make you proud.
Here is what my foster mom knows about me.
“Gus is a happy, playful little smurf. He can be shy at first with new people. However, his happy boy and clownish personality shine through when Gus trusts you and is comfortable with his surroundings. He is also very affectionate with well-trusted humans and loves being with you.”
“As a young Pyr, Gus enjoys a decent amount of activity. He is a fantastic walker and loves to go for 20-40 minutes walks several times each day.”
“Gus needs his own backyard – a place where he can run, dance around with toys, and be a playful and goofy boy. Once Gus gets out his zoomies, he is calm in the house and settles in for the day.”
“Gus communicates when he needs to go “Out.” For example, he will go to the patio door and paw it. Also, if he has an urgent need at night, he will put his front paws up on the bed and lick you until you wake up.” (Sorry to wake you, but when I gotta go, you gotta get me outside.)
“Gus has really blossomed into a great companion and will make a wonderful buddy for someone who will continue investing the time to build a strong bond with Gus.”
“Gus loves the 150 lb, 13-month-old Saint Bernard down the street. When they see each other, they know shenanigans are about to go down. So they both wiggle in excitement and get ready to test our patience with the games.”
“Gus is also a shameless lover of belly rubs; once he knows you well, he will flop down with all four paws in the air. Then, he will wait until you take the bait and rub his belly.” (Yep, I know how to play the belly rub game!)
GPRA recommends that my future home not have younger children.
Pyr-ready to celebrate the holidays with my new family!
Your loving, playful, and goofy Pyr boy, Gus

Hey, all. I am the loveable Oso Bear! Would you believe that I was surrendered to a Shelter because I kept getting out? All I want is to be loved, feel safe and find my very own fur-ever family.

GPRA’s dedicated walking volunteers are the most fabulous humans I have ever met, which makes me Pyr-happy. Here’s what they said bout me.

“Oso Bear is such a sweet, goofy boy! He saw a squirrel run by and did not seem too bothered. He is not overly interested in treats and prefers petting. He will Pyr paw you for pets. He is amazing on the leash and so sweet. I want to cuddle him all day!” (I want to cuddle with you all day, too!)

“Oso Bear is one affectionate dude. He greeted me with a big gentle hug and then an immediate Pyr paw! (Aw -shucks. Thank you.)

“Oso Bear welcomed lots of petting at our first meeting. Sadly, he looks a bit rough and needs fur to grow back in places. But, with grooming, a bath or two, and good nutrition, he will be a very handsome boy!” (My Pyr heart loves all of these compliments!)

“Oso Bear is a very friendly Pyr. He is extremely light on the leash and heeled all the way. He did not react to nearby deer. He needs 10 + pounds and is going to be one spectacular-looking Pyr!”

What else do you need to know to fall in love with me? How about you come to meet me?

Your Pyr-paw boy, Oso Bear 🐾♥️🐾

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.
