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! Please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below and the GPRA people will tell you which kind.

Bet you’re expecting a poem, huh, based on my name? Well, fortunately there’s no “i” in the word so this 3-year-old, 85 lb. guy doesn’t have to count syllables. However, I do need to find a new home. My parents are moving, and no dogs allowed on international flights. GPRA saved me and all my siblings. I’m also an outdoor dog who wasn’t house or crate trained. My parents say I’m a sweet dog and good with older kids who respect me and my space. I need to be leashed if the gate’s open or it’s adventure time. I’ll bark at cats, strangers coming into my yard, and people touching my food. It’s true, we alpha males tend to mind our own business, protect our property and people, and want to be the center of attention. It’s also true an alpha human outranks an alpha dog. My parents say I’m smart and learn commands well which means if you’re a strong, dog-savvy person, we might have something here. One last secret about me, I get nervous easily. Baths and thunderstorms scare me. Admitting that doesn’t do much for my leader of the pack reputation so I keep it to myself. You know a lot about me, I hope you’ll  please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below. I didn’t know my parents would move and all dogs want a home.

Dogs can be enigmas, too. For example, it’s puzzling this 2-year-old, 85 lb. girl loves being pet but doesn’t like tummy rubs. It’s also hard to understand why my dog sister is suddenly starting fights with me even though I’m so playful. And it’s a mystery how I like playing with cats and dogs, but bark at my kind when I’m on the leash. What’s for sure about me, though, is I’m housetrained, know basic commands, and only pull on the leash for a few minutes. I’m still learning stairs, but you can leave me home with the run of the house and all your stuff will be just like you left it when you get back. I like my young human brother and I’m OK with grown-ups, as long as I meet them slowly. So, if you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below, maybe we can get to know each other?

If you’ve fantasized about owning a Bentley, now’s your chance, as long as I don’t have to live in the garage! I’m a 1-year-old, 85 lb. outside guy. I didn’t choose it, I just am. Apparently digging under the fence to explore the other side isn’t safe so my parents are trusting GPRA to find me a new family who will teach this young dog some new tricks. Or maybe stop me from performing my old tricks, lol, like not jumping on people when I’m happy.  I’m good with kids, cats, and other dogs. Grooming is a good thing and I actually speak three words of human: “stop”, “no”, and “get down”. Lately I’ve been wanting to expand my vocabulary to include “treats”, “ear rubs” and “snacks”.  Yep, I doubled up the food words since I’m on the thin side. If you want to help me find love and the extra pounds I need, please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below.

I love rotisserie chicken and cheese! This is exciting news because until GPRA shared these magical foods with me, I didn’t know anything about myself. I’ve since learned I’m between 1.5 and 2-years old, weigh 85 pounds, and am quite timid around humans. Apparently, I like other dogs and don’t understand why I’m hooked to a leash when I go outside. As a former stray, I wasn’t tethered to anything. However, I’ve heard it is awesome being attached to gentle, loving, patient people and every Pyr should live that way. Are you, or do you know, one of those types of humans? Somebody who wants to teach me what kindness and house manners are—and who also knows where to buy rotisserie chicken and cheese? If so, please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below, I’m ready to be home.

I’m Chase, a 3-year-old, 85 lb. GPRA alumni who finally knows what he wants in life: A YARD TO PLAY IN! I can be protective. Sometimes people visiting, cars, loud vehicles, storms, and strangers, send me into my protective mode. I need to keep working on that, but the good news is I’m very food motivated. I’ve even counter surfed a time or two but let’s be honest, what Pyr hasn’t? Thanks to GPRA’s most paw-somest trainer, I’m sooo much better! I’m an athletic, agile dog who needs time to be active. Did I tell you what a smart boy I am? I love to learn new commands and stay busy so I’ll need a fur-ever person who is committed to working with me and making sure I remember all of my skills. Can we at least talk about it? If yes, please email info@greatpyratlanta.com or click “Apply to Adopt” below.

Looking for a Velcro dog? Well, here I am, Zephyr a 9.5-year-old, 85 lb., super sweet laid-back guy who loves people. My foster family leaves me alone to do something called “work” and even though there aren’t any anxiety issues, and I’m fine being with the other dogs unsupervised, I’d much rather be around my people as much as possible. Also, according to my foster mom, I’m a perfect dog because I don’t whine, drool, snarl, beg, or steal food. I love walks and short car rides; long ones upset my tummy. I am scared of thunder, but I just need someone to comfort me. Oh, and if we’re walking someplace really dark and uneven, a flashlight in your hand helps me feel safer. Pyrs are known to bark but so far, I haven’t had much to say at my foster house. In fact, I’m not digging, trying to jump the fence, or having any trouble with stairs. Life’s pretty good but it’ll be so much better with my own fur-ever family. Since I’m a slightly older guy, I spend most of my time napping or looking for someone to pet me. Want to try cuddling and brushing me (something else I love)? If so, please email info@greatpyratlanta.com or click “Apply to Adopt” below and maybe we can schedule a practice ear rubbing session.
