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

Hellos! I am Thor, and all I need is a hammer chew toy when I join your home for the next chapter of my life. Although my name indicates I am almighty, I am a three-year-old boy that just wants to have fun. During my farm days, I got in trouble with another Pyr in my pack for being too playful and rambunctious with the goats, which resulted in my removal from farm life. Now, I am looking for a family who is willing to engage in my playful activities.  I am good with children and just a loveable boy. Oh, one more thing, I have never met a cat, so I do not know much about them. 

After a grooming from the one and only Ms. Sabine, I heard her say that “I am a gorgeous and wonderfully, sweet boy”.

Looking for a fun new life… Yours truly, Thor

Hi! I’m Yaspada! I’m 2.5 years old and weigh 90 lbs. My mom had a family tragedy happen and had to move but couldn’t bring me with her. GPRA will help me find a good home. I’m described as a sweet dog, easy going, obedient and not destructive. I’m friendly with other dogs and strangers. As I learn more about myself I’ll have people from GPRA type it here, since I can’t type with my paws yet. Come back for more info later…

I’m thinking about a name change, something more original to go with my very individual personality. At 4-years-old and 90 lbs., I need a strong human leader to bring out my gentle Pyr qualities. We all go through stages and after recent events, I’m ready for the next stage: being my best self every day. Who is this best self you ask?  Well, he’s house trained, loves adults, gets along with his canine sister, and perfectly trustworthy home alone. This “current Bear self” is sometimes unsure, or maybe afraid of, other dogs and is always fearful of storms. Like all animals, I instinctively protect myself from things that scare me. I’d like to live with at least one alpha human and probably older kids, if any. Are you looking for a sweet dog and the chance to reinforce good traits?

Well, it’s time to find out what comes next for this six-year-old, 90 lb. girl who desperately wants to come inside. I’m a super sweet, gentle, loving dog who’s good with grown-ups, cats, and even free-roaming chickens. I might do best as an only dog. Know what else? I’m an excellent protector, too, especially with my humans on hikes. See, I like playing outside, I just don’t want to spend all day in the yard and all night in the garage. Oh, and I don’t want to live near a golf course, either. I’ll bark and bark at those moving carts until they know whose boss and go away. Unfortunately, I’m not so brave about thunderstorms, fireworks or gunshots. Last but not least, I need a new person who will teach me all the comforts of living indoors and sharing my dining space with other pets. I’m a little food reactive but I hear the right person can work with me on that, too. Hey, are you my right person? Will you at least please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, click “Contact Us” or choose “Apply to Adopt” below and talk about it with one of their people?

Hey! Hi’ya! Hi! I am the big Hoss! I am about 3 years old and about 90 lbs. I am just a big mellow fellow. I’m working on growing my hair back right now. It got a little tangled and messed up and, whooops, it had to get clipped. They tell me that when it grows back I am going to be one big HANDSOME mellow fellow. I like that. I am getting to know about life at home, instead of on the roam. There’s lots of me to love, just give GPRA a holler and let them know at info@greatpyratlanta.com
