A picture is worth 1000 words and I’m grateful GPRA’s adding happy words to my life story. I’m Salt, an 8-year-old, 80 lb. boy abandoned in an empty trailer with fleas all over my body, several kittens, and no electricity when it was almost 100 degrees for what felt like forever. An angel drove an hour every day to feed me, let me outside, and keep me company until she couldn’t do it anymore. So now you know I’m house-trained and probably noticed I look a little different from my neighbors on this page. I’m certain I’m part Pyr because I’m loving, calm, gentle to people and other animals, and resilient. How resilient? Well, when I was eight weeks old, someone put me in a bag and threw me out of their car traveling at 70 mph. A kind stranger took me to a vet who even though they couldn’t save my back leg, saved my life. So, I guess I’ve had a few angels in my life and now I need another one. Or maybe a whole family of beautiful people to care and shelter and love me in my senior years? Maybe yours? Please email info@greatpyratlanta.com or click “Apply to Adopt” below and we can meet.

Donate to Great Pyrenees Rescue of Atlanta

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.
