Happy day greetings to all! I am the sweetest Pyr that goes by the name of Izzy. My previous owner shared the following with GPRA.

“Izzy is shy but sweet. She is house-trained and LOVES to be outside. Izzy listens well and knows commands such as “sit” and “come.” She is also great with children of all ages.” (That’s a good start, right?) 
“Izzy loves milk bones and will always come for treats.” (Of course I do, what Pyr does not enjoy treats?)
“Izzy is leash trained and does very well with her leash manners. She is shy of new people, especially those wearing hats, and is always curious about other dogs on walks but is not aggressive toward them on leash.”
“Izzy is a very loving dog.” (Yes, I love it when my humans love on me.)
“Izzy will thrive as the only dog in the house that does not have other small farm animals or cats.”
So, that’s a bit about me. Let’s meet soon so that I can learn about you.
Pyrly yours, Izzy

Good day to you! I am Cassie. I was found as a stray and taken to a shelter. The shelter staff said I am a lovely and easy-going Pyr.
Upon my arrival to GPRA, I was given a thorough examination and received several vaccinations by an exceptional veterinary team. Then, GPRA’s very best volunteers put me through the magic grooming transformation, which means someone spent a lot of time brushing me out and bathing me.  (That bath felt so good, and now my skin and coat also feel terrific!) Although baths are new to me, and I didn’t particularly appreciate staying in the water, GPRA volunteers said I was a total sweetheart throughout the entire ordeal.
Now, I am with the best foster family, and here are a few things they’ve learned about me.
“Cassie is sweet, outgoing, friendly, and playful. She loves giving her Pyr paw.”
“Cassie loves walks and will follow her humans around the house. But, as soon as her humans stop and sit down, Cassie will also relax with us.”
“She is easy on the leash and will walk beside her human.”
“Cassie is always interested in saying hello and being playful when she sees other dogs. In addition, shelter staff indicated that Cassie is good with other cats and dogs.” (I truly am an easy-going and amiable girl.)
“Cassie is house-trained.” (Taking me outside 4-5 times every day helps me be a very good girl in the house.)
“Our favorite things about Cassie are her endearing, sweet puppy eyes and when she gives her Pyr paw.” (If you have never received a Pyr paw, you are in for a treat! Giving my Pyr paw is my way to get your attention, show my Pyr love, and request that you continue petting me.)
Well, that is a bit about me. So, when do I get to meet you? Everyone says I will be an excellent companion, so meet me soon!
Your Pyr-paw girl, Cassie

Happy day greetings to all! I am Harry. As a young Pyr, I have a lot to figure out and learn. Similar to every young dog, I will need patience, dedicated time, and training to help me be my very best Pyr self!  Are you ready to help me learn?
Lucky for me, I am now with a wonderful foster family. Gosh, I did not know humans could be so kind and loving. Here is what my foster family knows about me.
“Harry is very loving and joyful when he feels safe and loved and will give you the very best tail wags! But, for now, Harry seems to do best in a quiet and calm setting as he is still decompressing and learning all about his new surroundings and humans.”
“Harry has not had one single accident in our home. And, he is only ten months old -wow!”
“Harry is smart and picks up cues from our Pyr.  However, our Pyr is on the submissive side, so I think a more alpha Pyr will be an excellent coach for Harry to help build his confidence and keep him in line.”
“He is reactive to all new noises and barks deeply. I think he may have been an outside dog as every single house noise seems utterly foreign to him. However, he is getting used to our everyday noises. Today, no reaction to the coffee brewing or the cereal bowl and spoons clanging over breakfast. Progress!”
“Harry is terrified of the garbage truck.” (Whatever is that big thing that makes lots of noise? Will it return?)
“Harry has adapted wonderfully to our home with our hardwood flooring. However, Harry will not go up the stairs. We encourage him up the steps, but he gets frightened, freezes, and will not budge. (Cannot say that I have ever seen stairs before, and once I get up, how ever do I get down?)
“Yes, Harry can be a little needy, but it is in a very tender and endearing way. I question how much love Harry received in his former life as we do not know his backstory. But, if Harry trusts you, he gives the most AMAZING and INTENTIONAL love you can receive from a dog…And, I have a dog, and it’s a unique kind of love he gives/needs. Harry also greets you with the most JOYOUS tail wags as if he has not seen you for months.”
“Last night, Harry slept straight through the night and awakened us with lots of smooches, love and tail wagging. Harry is such a LOVING and endearing young Pyr, and I know GPRA will find him the very best home!”
“One of my favorite things about Harry is his soulful eyeliner eyes and unique eyeliner ears! (Aww, thank you. My Pyr-heart just doubled in size. Thank you for loving me.)
Your Pyr-endearing boy, Harry

Greetings to all! I am Pyrie. As a 14-year-old loved Pyr, my recent transition from the very best home where I lived for the past nine years to GPRA has been quite sad. You see, my devoted and loving owners can no longer care for me due to serious health issues. So, saying goodbye was sorrowful. And, as a dog-loving human, I know you understand, right?
Now, GPRA is helping me find another home where I can live out my golden years. (Thank you, GPRA, for being there for me.)
I’m a very easy keeper, and you will barely notice me around as I will curl up and doze the days away. My previous owners describe me as friendly, quiet, playful (yep, still have fun in me), obedient (I’m a faithful guardian), and easy-going.
I need a home with no stairs.
Do you have a little room in your heart and home for me? If yes, I will be grateful.
Pyrly yours, Pyrie ♥️

Hi there! Loveable and loads-of-fun Olaf Viking is here to share what makes me irresistible. With a name like Olaf, how can I not be irresistible? So, with the help of my foster mom, I’m proud to pyr-sent myself to you:

“Olaf is a super sweetheart boy! He loves to play and be active with his humans! He also loves to go on walks and can be a couch potato when he fulfills his exercise needs. If you let him, he will sit on you to get as close as possible!” (Yep! I love my adventure time, but I also love to cuddle up with my favorite cuddle buddies-my humans! I hope you have room on your lap for me, too! All this Olaf boy needs is love (and treats!) to live a happy life!)

“Olaf knows the commands: “sit,” “down,” and “come,” and we are working on “stay.” Olaf is very playful with dogs that will play and is respectful of those that do not.” (Learning the command “stay” can be challenging for me because all I want to do is follow my humans. Oh-and I love to play a lot! Do not worry, I can be a pyr-fect gentle-pyr and will settle in for an afternoon nap, too.)

“Olaf loves brushing, except on his tail. He has not tried to jump or dig under the fence. He does well when left alone in the house with the other dog.” (What can I say? I’m a pyr-fect roommate.)

If you say “yes” to me, I will be your big white gentle giant fur-ever! And, like my namesake, Olaf in Frozen, you will “be worth melting for” to me, too.
 
Your Pyr-loveable boy, Olaf Viking

Boo! It’s Ghost Stuart here. Since my parents are having human pups now, they no longer have time for this growing boy! I hope to find a new family that will give me lots of love.
Here is my Pyr resume:
“Ghost is a friendly, active, obedient, and easy-going family dog.” (I am truly a wonderful boy that needs some long-overdue attention, exercise, and love.)
“Ghost spends most of his time tied outside, and nobody has time for him.” (It gets hard being lonely, and I need humans who will give me the time and affection I deserve!)
“Ghost can get in the garbage can when he is bored.” (With no means of entertainment, I have had to invent my games! It’s called: “how much can I pull out of the garbage before my owners notice?” With a secure garbage can and lots of exercise and playtime with my humans, I will have no problem with the garbage!)
I am looking forward to a fresh new start!
Your Pyrly good boy, Ghost Stuart

Happy Day, everyone! If you are a Star Wars fan, you will fall in love with big, irresistible me because my name is Chewbacca! Cool name, right?

I have a wonderful family to thank for saving me from a horrible place. Since they already had four dogs, they knew GPRA was my best chance at a good life.

At first, everyone thought that I was part Golden Retriever because my coat was reddish-orange. Nope, I’m full Pyr! My beautiful coat had absorbed lots of Georgia clay, so GPRA put me through the magical grooming transformation, which included not one but three baths. Gosh, it felt so good to get all that dirt out of my coat that I fell sound asleep after my Spa Day! Now, I don’t even recognize myself. I am quite the stunning boy if I say so myself. (Yes, that’s my Pyr confidence and pride talking.)

Everyone says I am a super sweet and chill boy, so come meet me soon!

May the Pyr force be with you, Chewbacca

Hellos! I am Peter Piper.

Everyone says that I am the boy that captures your heart at hello!

My backstory is a bit sad. You see, I ended up in a shelter emaciated and in rough shape. The caring Shelter staff knew I was extra special and nurtured me back to health. They then contacted GPRA to say that I was ready to be adopted. (Saying goodbye to them was hard, but I will be forever thankful for the care and love they gave me.)

GPRA’s team of fabulous volunteers also sees how special I am. Here is what they think about me.
“Peter Piper is an absolute love ❤️ bug!” (I even got a heart with that comment. Thank you!)

“Peter Piper is such a good boy. He listens beautifully and sits to be collared and leashed for walks.”

“I love chasing balls with Peter Piper. He is so much fun!” (Yes, I am a fun boy! Will you play with me, too?)

“This boy wants to be loved and pet all the time. I enjoy just being with him.” (Aww, thank you. I love being with loving humans, too!)

GPRA thinks that a knowledgeable Pyr owner will be a great fit for me.

Your Pyr-awesome boy, Peter Piper
