Hi, everybody! I’m Maggie T., and it’s terrific to meet you. When we meet, I’ll probably give you a paw, which is pyr-talk for “more love, please!” and “how do you do?” I am good with people and meeting new people. I think it’s because I love attention so much! If I’m not giving you pyr paw, I’ll be giving you lots of nose boops. (My GPRA buddies say my nose is heart-shaped!) People tend to like me because I’m housetrained. If I have to potty, I’ll look at you or whine by the door. In my home, I get along well with cats. It’s nice to have kitty-cat housemates, but other dogs in the house aren’t really for me. Outside of the home, like when I’m on a walk, I do pull sometimes to bark at other dogs. I LOVE to be walked, so with a bit of training (which my foster mama is working on), I’ll get better at not reacting to other dogs on a walk. If you need to go anywhere outside of the neighborhood, I’m good in the car too. To me, though, the best thing in the world is cuddling close to my humans. I like to lean against you or sit beside you and get all the pets you can give me. Anytime you want me to sit by you, just tell me “sit” because I know that command along with “come” and “off.” You see, I really am a wonderful houseguest. When you leave for work, I’m a good girl and can be left in the house without being destructive. The only place that I don’t do well for a long time is in the car. I get carsick if it’s too long of a ride! Just look at my picture! I’m happy and smiling because I’m near someone who loves me. Could that be you?

Hey! I am Mr. Brock. While I do not have a full coat of white fluff, GPRA thinks I am part Great Pyrenees and Anatolian Shepherd. As a new fella to GPRA, everyone is still learning about me. I will need time to settle in and feel secure with my new surroundings. So far, GPRA’s walkers think I am a dream to walk. I will benefit from a confident yet kind-hearted owner who understands guardian breeds like me. More info is coming soon…

Thor here, again, to give you an update on how I am doing with my foster family. My foster mom has given GPRA a five-star report on me. Here are a few glowing comments.
Thor is “shy, gentle, outgoing, a protector, independent, a cuddler, talker, curious, and smart.” (Yep, this is me!)
“If someone wants calm, Thor is extremely mellow.”
“Thor loves to be loved.” (I am a sweet boy!)
“Thor did not go to any obedience training. We are introducing Thor to commands such as sit, stay, down, and come.” (I am a fast learner.)
“Thor was happy to meet our cat. Thor wags his tail and is glad to have another furball in the house.”
“Thor loves my dog walker and others, so he is good with other people.” (Of course, I love people, I am a Pyr!)
“Thor respects fences. He likes to be outside.” (Yes, I love just being outside watching the day pass by.)
“Thor is fine to leave alone in the house. Upon my return, I find him curled up sleeping in the same spot.” (I am dozing but still keeping track of everything.)
“Thor is a beautiful, quintessential Great Pyrenees.” (Thank you!)

So, that’s my report. I am so thankful to GPRA and my foster family for helping me. Are you ready to adopt me? Your sweet, almighty, and loving Thor

Hi! I’m Daisy. I’m 2.5 years old and weigh 88 lbs. I’m being a good mom taking care of my puppies at the moment. Soon they’ll get old enough and I’ll be ready for my own fur-ever home! I love walks and I’m good on a leash. I’m house-trained and I love my head scratches! More info coming soon…

Yeah, I know, Tiger is usually a cat’s name but clearly, I’m NOT a cat. More important, I can list several reasons why this 3-year-young, 88 lb. boy is way better than a kitty. Let’s count together:
1. I go potty outside, so the house always smells fresh.
2. If you leave me home alone, I won’t unroll the toilet paper, which I hear humans really need these days!
3. Other dogs are my friends, even if I’ve never met them.
4. People – I like people as long as I can sniff them before they pet me. Cats, however, can be quite standoffish.
5. My mom says I’m very good with my seven-year-old person
6. I know my name and will sit and get down on command
7. My cuddles are full size because I’m a big dog!
I can feel my family’s broken hearts about having to let me go; I hope you will love me for me and not judge them. If you please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below, we can discover tons more reasons why I’m better than a cat.
