Hi, I’m Elsa W, a recently arrived 5 yr old momma dog with my pups that was saved by a northern rescue who got in touch with GPRA for help with us.  More info coming soon…

Our main mission at GPRA is to find the right permanent home for Great Pyrenees in distress, whether they are strays or from an overpopulated kill or no-kill shelter. We don’t care how old they are or what their medical condition is because we will make sure they receive a comprehensive medical evaluation, spaying or neutering, and even behavioral training if necessary.

Behind every beautiful thing, there’s some kind of pain.” I’m Dylan, a 3-year-old, 95 lb. boy, not to be confused with the Bob Dylan who wrote these oh-so-true words. If you’ve seen my Instagram pictures @greatpyratlanta, you can tell I’ve had more than my share of pain, but thanks to GPRA, I’m on my way to beautiful. My foster family and canine sibling are patiently following the vet’s directions, healing my mange, skin issues, ear infections, and soul. Everyone who’s met me says I’m a giant marshmallow. I guess they’re talking about the white Pyr fur growing in? Or maybe because I love food and can’t wait to be closer to my ideal weight? I’m so tall, the vet says I can carry about 140 lbs so yeah, I get to eat a lot!! Every day is a little better; every day my foster family and I learn a little more about my true personality. So, if you like the idea of having this Great Pyrenees shining bright in your family photos later this year–you should know I plan on being remarkably handsome–please email info@greatpyratlanta.com or click “Apply to Adopt” below.

Imagine buying a house and discovering a 4-year-old, 95 lb. female Great Pyrenees named Dakota in the basement! Yep, that’s exactly how I came to be with my temporary people when my original family moved and took everything except me. Luckily the new home owners truly cared for me until they discovered GPRA. They’re dog people, just not long-hair-and-likes-to-jump-the-short-fence-to-visit-the-neighbors-but-always-comes-home kind of dog people. I used to be an outdoor dog but thanks to my current people, I prefer the joys of indoor living.  I’m very well-mannered, I’ve never had an accident even when left alone for 14 hours and I’m great with children, including the 2-year-old in my current home. In fact, I get along with people of all ages as well as dogs and cats.  Who knows, I may even like fish or hamsters! Now, having lived without food for a short time, I sometimes growl at another dog who is too close to my bowl so if you already have one of my kind, just do what my temporary mom does: space our food bowls out when you feed us.  If you have a spot in your heart for me (and maybe a tall fence), please email info@greatpyratlanta.com, or click “Apply to Adopt” below.

I’m Minnie Jasper, a sweet, 95-lb, 4-year-old gal who loves, loves, loves to be with people! I grew up with lots of children – so many that my family didn’t really have time for me. That may have spelled loneliness for me, but it’s good news for you because I am great with kids. Cats, not so much. And I can be picky about my canine friends, although I get along great with Foster Mom’s dog.

I’m on the hunt for every Pyr’s dream – a home where I am a cherished, integral part of the family. My house-hunting list includes: frequent snuggles; lots of gentle praise; and a sunny spot where I can lie and be lazy. I have some minor (but not major) separation anxiety. When you leave the house, just open the blinds so I can see outside and hand me a Kong filled with peanut butter to keep me occupied. Hey, it’s all about the right bribes – uh, motivation. Do you think you can handle that? Do you need a giant lap warmer? (After all, winter is here.) Then what are you waiting for? Get on the horn now and contact GPRA today.

Hi everyone, my name is Gabby.  I am a 6.5 year old gal who has had a bit of a rough life so far. I am new to GPRA as they were the only one who would take me in and give me a safe place to lay my head every night.  I have been welcomed with open arms and a lot of hugs.  I really hope to find my new forever home soon so that I can be on the mend to get back to greatness and enjoy the comforts of a hot cooked meal and a warm bed.  With me being new to the group, there is not a lot of history on me but I promise that I am a super sweet girl that will be very kind and trustworthy.  If you take the chance on me, I promise to be a loyal companion until the end.  Contact GPRA today for more information about me at info@greatpyratlanta.com.
