Adoptable Dogs

All Adoptable Dogs

All of the dogs shown on this page are available for adoption through the Texas Great Pyrenees Rescue.


Name: Adonis
Adonis was a stray and is an approximately 18 month old Great Pyrenees Mix. He loves being inside with family, he has a chilled personality, gets along with dogs, and cats, and he truly prefers to be at your side. He was in bad shape when found, he needs TLC and groceries. A healthy weight for him will probably be around 120-130lbs. He will be neutered before going to his forever home. If you are looking for a calm and sweet boy, look no further. read more


Name: Amino
Finding Ami (aka Amino)...this sweet gal was left behind after her owners moved. Not much is known about her history but she was finally picked up by TGPR and is on her road to happily ever after. She is on the older side, best guess is around 3-4 years old, weighs about 85 pounds, a Pyr-Anatolian cross, with an adorably short but thick, fluffy coat. She is potty trained, untested in the kennel, but her fosters are thinking she does not need one. She is stiff at times so does not seem to have the need to jump on furniture or people, but she will hop and prance to show her delight and excitement when you come around. Ami needs proper and slow introductions to other dogs and her fosters think she would do best in a quieter home with no children or at least older ones and she would also be perfectly happy as an only dog. She is tolerant of her foster fur-siblings but is not interested in playing or engaging them; no aggression and she will follow them around the yard, she just isn't very doggy-social. She is indifferent to the cat but they also just give each other space. Ami is perfectly happy hanging with her humans inside or out. This sweet little lady is just looking for that special family to show her the love she has been lacking for a long time now. read more


Name: Arley
Arley has been kept outside in someone's back yard for her entire life, so she is learning how to be an indoor dog. She is doing very well on house and crate training. She loves to play with other dogs and is a very sweet girl. read more


Name: Avery
Avery is an approximately 8 week old Pyr mix puppy. She came to us very skinny and with a fractured leg that healed. We are checking to see if surgery is an option for her. She is so very sweet and LOVES to cuddle with her people! She is on medical hold for now. read more


Name: Badger BBT
He's super chill and easy going. He loves walks and does well on a leash. He loves to play with tennis balls and rope toys. I think he would be good with kids but all stuffed animals need to be kept out of his reach because this boy loves soft things to chew on. In times of stress, he may be a bit destructive and chew on things like furniture. Belly rubs and ear scratches are still his favorite. He greets me every morning with a smile and then flops down for a belly rub. He is reluctant to get in the car but once he does he doesn't have any issues. He seems to be ok loose in the house but he will try to bolt through the door when you come home. We are keeping an eye on his medical situation to make sure he's healed up well and doesn't have any other issues but he's been such a good dog so far for everything he's been through! read more


Name: Bailey Lee
Bailey is a neutered, approximately 2 year old boy with some cream markings on his head, and it looks like he has eyeliner! He has a shorter coat than most pyrs, we believe that he is mixed with golden retriever. He weighs about 75 pounds, and the vet recommended he stay at that weight, due to some hip pain seen when he first came to us. He is on cosequin and it seems to be working very well for him, for he enjoys his walks and likes to run around the house. He is a cuddle bug, that will enjoy being with you wherever you go. Bailey is a shy pup that is unsure of new people at first, but once he gets past the initial meet, he will forever be your friend. He is good with cats, mostly ignoring them, occasionally will want to play. He enjoys playing with other dogs, but would be happy as an only dog as well. He can be trusted out of his kennel (although he is kennel trained) while at work, for he is housebroken, and stays out of trouble. He rides well in the car and is ready for his forever family! read more


Name: Barnabus
Barnabus hails from far East Texas. He was just a little too friendly with the dogs next door, and the neighbors threatened to shoot him!! He didn't mean any harm, he just wanted to play!! Nonetheless it was time to find a new home. Barnie was born approximately in 2017. He is getting used to the concept of being a city dog. He loves the house and his own bed, but still needs a little patience using a collar and a lead. With a little love and time he will be a great family dog! read more


Name: Beauregard
Hi my name is Beaux. I am a big, sweet, Cajun gentleman who is looking for a furever home. Like my buddy, Beula, I was supposed to be working the sheep, but when I ran off, since I prefer hamburgers and cuddles, my Owner chained me up, on a 3 foot chain, to live in a dirt hole for years with very little food. I need to gain about 30 pounds. My foster family discovered me and convinced the owner that they could find me a home better suited for me, so now starts my new chapter as a Texan! I am around 3 years old and am a little skiddish at first. Iím afraid of getting hurt again, but I warm up quickly when I know you will treat me well. My foster mom and I share lots of tender moments with her petting my big head and putting her face right by my face. I will even push my head under her hand when sheís typing to get extra love. When I am healthy again, I will be an impressive 100+ pound dog. I promise to protect my Owners with my large presence, but at the end of the day, I really just want to nap and give and receive love. I am quickly gaining weight and on the road to health. I did test positive for heartworms, but thanks to TGPR, I am going to get well. I am a very chill dog. Occasionally, I like to play with my fellow rescue, Beula. I bound around like an awkward pup with my lanky legs. At my foster home, I stay outside mostly during the day, but do well in a kennel at night. I am OK outside, but really just want to be wherever the humans are. I am doing very well with leash training. I am a little nervous to get in the car, but once Iím in, I quickly lay down. Since I like to explore, I need a fence, but please not a chain! I am looking forward to living my best dog life, napping in the sun, getting good food, maybe playing with another dog, and giving and receiving lots of love. read more


Name: Bentley Reese
Bentley is an owner surrender from Lubbock. His family moved to an apartment and he is depressed and hasn't adjusted well. He was born on a farm about July 2018 and adopted to his previous family at 2 mos. After first moving into the apartment, there was a period he didn't eat or drink and suffered a seizure. That has been a one time incident; the seizure showed left damage to his hind legs, showing early signs of arthritis and/or hip dysplasia. he was brought to the vet to be checked out and it doesn't appear he is epilpetic.; he can still run and go up and down stairs, but at times can lose balance easilyHe has separation anxiety and would do best in a home with humans consistently present. If left alone for too long, he will give himself hot spots. He loves walks and is still playful like a puppy. It is believed he was the runt of the litter and is not an alpha He is neutered and up to date on shots. He is not food aggressive and is believed he would do well with other dogs, big and small. read more


Name: Beula
Hi, my name is Beula, or Beu-la-la, or Beula-ful, as my Foster mom calls me, because she says I am beautiful inside and out! I am a Cajun girl and grew up on land. I was supposed to be working the sheep, but when I ran off, because I prefer love and cuddles, my former Owner put me on a 3 foot chain for years, where I lived in a dirt hole, didnít get to eat a whole lot, and even had puppies. My foster family discovered me and convinced the owner that they could find me a home better suited for me, so now starts my new chapter as a Texan! I am around 3 years old, have the energy and joy of a pup, and am a soft, fluffy girl. Sometimes I will push my head under my foster momís hand when sheís typing to get extra love. Anytime someone comes near me, I roll onto my back for belly rubs. I did test positive for tummy worms and heartworms, but thanks to TGPR, I am going to get well. I could probably gain 5 pounds or so, but I am known as a ĎPocket-Pyr;í I am a perfect cuddle size and will probably cap out around 50 lbs. Everyone says how cute I am and what a great personality I have. I went to the vet for the first time and handled it like a champ. At my foster home, I live outside, as my foster folks have 3 other dogs and want to introduce us slowly. I do get to come in at night in the laundry room, since I am bred to Ďworkí and might bark if I see a critter. I have been doing well with my bathroom habits and waiting Ďto goí until Iím outside the next morning. We are working on leash training. Iím a quick learner, and it shouldnít take much for me to figure out the leash thing. I hop right into my foster momís car and love a good joyride in the car. I just look out the window, smiling the whole time. Since I like to explore, I need a fence, but please not a chain! I am looking forward to living my best dog life, basking in the sun, getting good food, maybe playing with another dog and giving and receiving lots of love! read more


Name: Big Dog Buddy
Buddy was found wandering and had been shot in the leg. The shot shattered his patella, so he will be on medical hold for a while to see if we can salvage the leg or if it will have to be amputated. read more


Name: Bluebell of the Crayola Littter
One Mom, two different litters. These babies were found in a pasture. The momma was trying to fend a coyote from snagging one of her 8 charges. Once TGPR rescued them, it was realized quickly that 5 of the puppies were developmentaly older then the other 3. Bluebell is one of the older 5. Born approximately 4/27/2020, Bluebell will be ready for adoption by July 3rd. read more


Name: Buddy CoPilot
Buddy wa born in 2016 and originally was a guardian in the field. He is a lean Pyrenees with confirmed coyote kills...He has a small scar above his eye to prove it. He's more of a beta but still a wonderful hard-working dog. He is very friendly, he loves being petted and seeks out affection. He will come up to you to initiate loving touches. He will do well with other dogs as he tends to follow their lead. Regardless he is ready to be a great companion! read more


Name: Buttercup
Buttercup (MEDICAL HOLD) is a wonderful name for a smaller Pyr mix girl who is the definition of sweetness. This lovely puppy is a happy and affectionate girl. Sadly, she was born with malformations in her hips and spine which will probably require a series of operations beginning with a hip replacement on one side this summer. For that reason, she is not available for adoption at this time. She is going for her second orthopedic consultation in the coming week. Watch for more information as we have it! read more


Name: Buzz
Fuzzy Buzz! He is a young, rambunctious boy. He came to us with an eye issue which has been corrected. His left eye will always look a little different, being a bit droopier than his right, and a part of his 3rd eyelid will always be visible. Buzz is a rough and tumble guy, who will need to be in a home with other big dogs with similar play style. After spending most of his life outside, he does seem to prefer to be indoors. Even if the other dogs are out, he gets tired of being outside quickly and will search at the door to be let back in. He can be intimidating to small dogs, and could accidentally knock over small kids, so we recommend a home with children over 10. We have not seen him exposed to cats. He loves every person he meets! He excels at finding ways to push himself into your lap for hugs and love. Now that his eye doctor has released him crate rest, we will start working on leash walking. He is still learning that chewing the couch cushions is not okay. Crate trained. House trained (finally). We just love his perpetual bed head and just how happy he is all of the time! read more


Name: Cash
Cash is part of a bonded pair that came from the Palestine As, with his buddy, Tango. We have little information on these boys. They are roughly two years of age, are quite shy but are slowly learning to trust humans. Tango is the friendlier of the two. Despite the shyness, they are beautiful easy dogs that need a place that will understand their special situation read more


Name: Christian
Christian is a sweet-natured neutered male Pyr about 3 years old. He joined TGPR in early June. He grew up in the country, but loves relaxing inside as well playing with his foster brother (a Pyr) and chasing squirrels outside. He is willing to let other dogs be the leader, and loves to be around his people. Christian's walk is a little unusual because of a congenital malformation in his hip, but it does not seem to bother him at all. He has been seen by two vets, including an orthopedic specialist. They advised that surgery will not be the right solution for him, and his issue can best be treated with regular exercise, weight control, and occasional pain meds. He is a beautiful boy who doesn't know his he has anything unusual at all. read more


Name: Chuffy
Chuffy (combination of cute and fluffy) was an indoor dog the first 6 months of his life, but when a family member's asthma started acting up, he was forced to live outside. He seems to enjoy being outside, but also enjoys the nice cool A/C in the house. He is working on not jumping on people when he meets them, as well as leash manners. He loves to play with other dogs and chase his frisbee around the yard. He weighs in at about 93 pounds right now and may fill out a bit more. He seems to have a natural instinct to protect his house and property and will need a more experienced adopter as well as a home with older or no children. read more


Name: Coco
Coco started his puppy life being chained up in a backyard and after a concerned neighbor stopped by and asked about him the family offered to let her take him home. She then reached out to TGPR for help! Coco is learning that being inside isn't as scary as it seems and picks up on learning commands quickly. He loves to play with other dogs and would do best in a home where he has a pup sibling to show him the ropes and give him some company inside. He loves to cuddle and will bury his bones to come back and get them later. read more


Name: Crew
Crew has a condition called Cerebellar Hypoplasia. It happens when the cerebellum doesn't develop fully and it causes deficits in balance and coordination, but he isn't in any pain. He can live a normal, healthy life, though a bit clumsy. ;-) He came in with her sister, Kennedy. They are pretty bonded to each other, but they do not have to be adopted together. However, the adopter will need to have another dog in the home to interact with. He is learning that people aren't scary and leashes won't eat him. A kennel is his safe space and he is working on house training. He weighed 47 pounds on 6/22/2020. He will be ready to go to his forever family on July 2nd. read more


Name: Drake
Meet the new TGPR lion, oops Pyr, Drake. Due to his current haircut, he could be mistaken for a lion. But looks are deceiving and he is far from that. Drake, born around 2013, is a very gentle pyr that within an hour of arrival at his foster home, was getting attention from families and showing off his loving demeanor. He is dog friendly, cat friendly, and great with livestock. He is a perfect gentleman that is getting use to being in a house. It appears that he lived his life outside, but is adapting well. He is also hard of hearing and needs a yard with a solid fence. If you are looking for an easy going dog that wants attention, Drake is your guy. read more


Name: Duck HFD
Duck is a great all-around family farm dog looking for a new home and job with his BFF Winry. Born in 2016, this sweet boy loves people and would do great with a family with active school aged children. He has lived with chickens, goats, and equines. Duck and Winry are looking for a home where they get plenty of socialization time with their people. read more


Name: Dutch
Meet Dutch, just the sweetest big baby boy ever! Born Approximately 03/19/20 he has short tan hair and may be part anatolian shepherd. Dutch is doing so well with his foster family, playing and wrestling all day with his 95 lb foster sister - he holds his own and follows her around everywhere. Dutch has been learning puppy manners, sharing toys, playing chase and is mastering sit. He's doing awesome with house training - using the bells to alert his need to go out. He is an absolute sweet heart - loves toys, loves people, loves other dogs, and is very interested in cats, but hasn't chased them. Dutch does have separation anxiety - his foster mom is working with him on it, but that will likely be something that his forever family will need to help him with as well. He loves to be near your side and will follow you from room to room, so someone who is home more often than not will be an ideal situation for him. He is also working on crate training. Dutch will thrive with an active family and a doggy sibling to play with - his size or larger would be best so he can play like he's the big dog that he thinks he is! If you are looking for a super sweet, smart, playful new family member - Dutch is your guy! read more


Name: Freja
Freja is the mom of the Ninjago Litter. She is very underweight at 60 pounds and has some hair loss from fleas and motherhood. She is also heartworm positive, but treatment has started for that. She is a bit shy at first, but warms up quickly and is very sweet. More to come as we get to know her better. read more


Name: Gabe
Gabe came to TGPR in late May after a Good Samaritan saw him (and several younger puppies) being thrown out of a truck in garbage bags. TGPR boarded him at a San Antonio area vet to confirm he was healthy, which he is. However, we quickly learned that he was terrified and would not even leave the kennel with the door open to a play yard. He is still very shy, although he wants to trust. He will now run to happily greet people he recognizes. He never shows any aggression, but will back up if uncertain. Gabe is about 9 months old. He has a beautiful gold coat, dark eyes and the double dew claws of a Pyr. He loves treats and will take them from our hands. He has also become pals with another mixed breed dog who befriended Gabe and they love to run together in the play yard. He is still afraid of strangers, but he has come a long way in the past month. We plan to put him with a foster in July so that he can continue his happy "therapy" in a home setting. read more


Name: Gidget
Gidget was adopted a couple of years ago and recently returned because she is an escape artist. You see, her owner passed away, and now she escapes the yard when left outside unattended. She is a very sweet girl and is on the smaller side at about 70 pounds. She is good with other dogs and loves kids of all ages. She walks well on a leash and rides well in a car. She is very affectionate and will give you her mighty Pyr paw if she thinks she needs more pets. Check out her "smile" in one of the pictures. She does not get on the furniture and is trustworthy being left in the house by herself. She is ready for her forever home! read more


Name: Gypsy Love
Gypsy Love was found dragging a rope that had been chewed through. She was very skinny and covered in fleas. Her weight coming in was 64 pounds, but she should be around 85 pounds at her ideal weight. She is very sweet and gets along well with other dogs. She rides well in a car and walks well on a leash. She tested light heartworm positive and has started antibiotics as the first step in treating that. She has been spayed, is gaining weight and loves pets. She is ready for her forever family. read more


Name: Jumpin' Jay of Ninjago Litter
Jumpin' Jay has a Pyr mom and we think a Lab dad. He is very sweet, but a bit more reserved than his brother, Master Wu. He enjoys posing for the camera and wrestling with his brother. We think he is going to be a very loyal, best friend once he has some confidence and finds his forever family. He will be available to go to his forever home on July 12th. read more


Name: Kennedy
Kennedy has a condition called Cerebellar Hypoplasia. It happens when the cerebellum doesn't develop fully and it causes deficits in balance and coordination, but she isn't in any pain. She can live a normal, healthy life, though a bit clumsy. ;-) She came in with her brother, Crew. They are pretty bonded to each other, but they do not have to be adopted together. However, the adopter will need to have another dog in the home to interact with. She is learning that people aren't scary and leashes won't eat her. A kennel is her safe space and she is working on house training. She weighed 33 pounds on 6/22/2020. She will be ready to go to her forever family on July 2nd. read more


Name: Koda Leigh
Koda Leigh is a very sweet 3-year old! She absolutely loves people and is adjusting to having other dogs around her. She has lived outside most of her life, so we are training her on acceptable behavior in the house. Fortunately, she is very anxious to please and is learning the ropes quickly! She has not had a single accident in the house, so we would say she is house broken. Thunderstorms make her nervous and she will need a safe place to hang out in. She loves to go on walks and is learning how to walk on a leash. She is good with children, but we donít have any cats, so we donít know if she is cat-friendly. She likes water, so we bought a childrenís wading pool for her and she loves it when it is hot. She also loves to cuddle. Koda is heartworm positive and has started treatment. She should be cured by the July She weighs about 75 pounds, which looks to be a good weight for her. Stay tuned for updates as we get to know her personality. read more


Name: Kopek
This beautiful fellow was guarding goats and sheep before coming into the rescue, but we do not yet know if being a guardian is his preference. He looks to be an Akbash or Akbash mix. He is friendly with people. His name is an homage to his Turkish ancestry. Kopek translates to "dog". Pictures and more details to come as we learn about him in foster care. read more


Name: Lacey HFD
Lacey loves people, other dogs, playing in the rain, walks. Lacey has lived with chickens and seems ok with goats. She likes being outdoors but is anxious during storms. Lacey alerts to deer and predatory birds. read more

We suspect that she was born a stray and are currently working on building her trust and confidence around people. read more


Name: Leo
This sweet guy needs to have hip surgery before he is ready for adoption. Stay tuned for more information! read more


Name: Maggie Mae
Maggie Mae is a young energetic lady who loves to PLAY! She has the bark and double dews of a pyr, but looks like she may also have some hound, shepherd, and sighthound in her. Maggie Mae has a very strong prey drive so she would probably do best in a home without small animals to chase. She is food motivated and would love to learn some new tricks. Maggie Mae would love to be a part of an active family with another young dog to play with. If going for a hike and then snuggling on the couch watching Netflix is your definition of a perfect day, then check out Maggie Mae! read more

Name: Mama Colores
Mama Colores is a very brave momma dog that was find trying to fend off a coyote attack on 8 puppies. The good Samaritan helped her find refuge for the babies and then called for help. What is most amazing with this story is that the puppies are two different ages which meant she was caring for puppies she did not deliver!! Nonetheless she has been a good momma and is so sweet and happy to be safe and secure. She will be ready for adoption after the younger puppies are weaned and she is fully vetted. (approximately July 8) read more


Name: Margot
Medical Hold. Margot is a sweet little Pyr pup of about 4 months who came to TGPR in late January 2019. She was limping when she came to us and it appears that she will need surgery to correct a malformation of her hip socket and femur. The vet tells us this may have been due to a congenital issue or trauma. While we hate to see a problem like that, especially at such a young age, her foster family loves her and plans to adopt her once she has had corrective surgery. read more


Name: Mary Ann
They call me Mary Ann and I was born about November 2019. Noone really knows cuz I just showed up one day with my sister Ginger at this lady's house. She took pity on since we were starving!! She called this thing called a rescue to get help and now we are living the life of luxury. Our tummies are full and they have given us medicine to help us feel better. We have to take daily baths right now cuz I have something icky called Mange, but the doctor said would go away pretty quick! We are a little shy, as life has not been too kind to us up till now but we make friends very quickly. Its ok if we go to different homes, just as long as they the humans understand the need for patience. read more

Name: Meeker aka Bingo
HI!! I go by Bingo now but I was originally adopted as Meeker. I was born in 2017 and have been living with a nice family in the woodlands. I am a big active boy that doesn't always remember my boundaries. I would do best with a family of older children, and someone who can help me understand who is in charge. I get along ok with other dogs but like to take those introductions slow. If you work with me, I am a BIG love bug, weighing over 100 pounds at 18 mos!! read more


Name: Mila
Mila was found running stray and in heat with no collar and underweight. She weighs just under 70 pounds and will probably be around 80-90 at her ideal weight. She is a definite people dog and loves attention. She is nervous in cars and not a fan of thunderstorms. She gets along with dogs of all sizes and is cat friendly. She walks well on a leash and is learning about the good things in life like toys and bones to chew on. She will be ready for her forever home after she is spayed. read more


Name: Millie Mae
Millie Mae is a bouncy, happy, active young adult. She absolutely loves people, and will soak up pets, belly rubs, and snuggles. She still jumps for joy when greeting people - as a tall and lanky 75# dog, her enthusiasm can be a hazard to children and seniors. A large overbite gives her a giant beaming smile. When not basking in attention or sleeping, she trots around exploring or entertains herself playing. Millie is a country girl, having spent most of her life outdoors in a fenced yard or chicken run. She was not potty trained as a puppy, but has not had any accidents in the small portion of our house we have allowed her into. We think she can learn house manners with patience and training - and know she would be delighted to spend more time with people. Her first family had fowl, doves and rabbits. We believe Millie is safe with poultry and has expressed only curiosity about our neighbor's cows and horses. She is not a livestock guardian, but her big, deep bark alerts to approaching cars and people. We have started teaching Millie basic commands, and she is a fast learner. She has walked our property well on a long retractable leash, and has been manageable on a short leash during trips to town. We are still working on resource guarding. Millie should have a family of adults and children mature enough to not interrupt her eating or take toys and treats from her. She may be best as an only dog, or with a family familiar with resource guarding. She has aggressively protected food, toys, territory, and people's attention from other dogs. Most of her aggression has been directed at our female; she may have less conflict with males. Without these triggers, she gets along with our dogs and enjoys roughhousing and chasing. She is still learning the rules of doggy play, and as a gangly active youngster, she can be obnoxious to mature dogs. Millie had skin allergies (now under control) and we are trying to identify the cause. She is ready and waiting for her forever home. read more


Name: Nitro
This poor guy had been wandering the streets of Houston until someone contacted TGPR for help. He is very skinny and has mange, but he has started treatment and will be feeling better in no time. He is good with other dogs as well as cats. Unfortunately he is heartworm positive, but has started taking antibiotics to treat it. More to come as we get to know him better. read more


Name: O'Malley
Medical hold - more to come. read more


Name: Paislee

Name: Patty Stone
Hello! I am Patty. I was born 3/27/2011. I was very faithful in guarding cattle, chicken and my property for years, but my owner and I have gotten a bit older and we are now both retired from farming. I am now a house pet girl! It has taken me several months to learn the art of just being a house dog. I have come a very long way since Sept 2019. I now interact with the other dogs and cats as well as a toddler who lives within the house. My kennel is my safe place and if I do get a little nervous due to a lot of activity, I will just go to my crate and watch it all. While I am a little slow to warm up to new people, it is "mountains" better than not coming to people at all. I am house trained but still learning the leash. My wish is to just relax with my new family who does not mind me watching a bit of TV with them. My new family will need patience so I can continue to fully enjoy the life of a house dog! Love Patty read more


Name: Remi
Remi , born 3/15/2016 is a great big loving boy that started life as a chicken pyr. He is still very good around ducks and chickens, however due to his allergies that flair up in the heat, it is hard for him to stay outside 24/7. He is very sweet, and good on lead. He is friendly to most dogs, though tends to want to be the lead man. His current owner has no issues with Remi and her females but he is pretty hard on brother Ruger. He would be a great companion for a hobby farmer who is looking for a fluffy rug for their home. read more


Name: Rosa Abby
Rosa Abby is a 5-6 year old sweetheart with a beautiful tri-color coat. She came to TGPR from the Austin shelter and is spayed, heartworm negative, and dog-friendly. She is being fostered in an apartment and doing well. She loves to go for her walks with the other two dogs in the home. Rosa weighs 100 pounds which is a bit much for her frame. We expect daily exercise will help her lose weight and improve her overall well-being. Her fosters report that she has already won their hearts after just a few days! read more


Name: Sadie
Sadie is a loveable ďbig white polar bear,Ē just keep petting or that huge paw will give you a wack. She is a 94 pound 7 years old female and was an original rescue from LA in 2013; adopted 5 years ago with another rescue dog, Sage. Sadie stays indoors most of the time, with a dog door to go outside and has recently been up to her old tricks, of climbing the chain link fence, to ďgo for a run,Ē with no concern for traffic or where she ends up. Owner had to make a difficult decision to put safety of dogs above their love and companionship. Needs lots of lovin! Would love it if Sadie could be adopted with her best buddy Sage, but not a requirement. read more

Name: Simba
Simba born roughly 2016, is the epitome of the "Gentle Giant" . He is a gentle easy going lover of a boy. He was abandoned by his former family and wandered up for sanctuary with his current foster. In a short time, he has learned the pleasure of house life. He gets along with all the foster's dogs, as well as the neighbors' dogs. He is protective of his people though so he requires some boundaries, and a firm mom or dad. Simba would likely do best in a home with an older family with less traffic. read more

Name: Sparkles
Oh let me tell you about our newest-your newest best friend, Sparkles. She was born approx 7/2018. Sparkles is a show stopper for sure... just look at that long silky hair. Yes, she is on the thin side but she does have the GP double dews and with a little TLC she is gonna be even more gorgeous. She is a pretty small girl, 48.5 lbs but I think she will probably get to 60 lbs but not much taller. She was found as a stray and brought to us by Golden Retriever Rescue because they knew we knew the Great Pyrenees! This little girl KNOWS the house and couch and is as smooth of a personality as her silky fur! She fit right in with our big pack! She is healthy but needs to be spayed and get over a small ear infection which is being treated. Sparkles is no doubt a true example of "it takes a village" to work rescue. Enjoy her pictures and I am here to tell you that she will not last long! read more

Name: Stella Ginger
A lady of mystery, the stellar Stella was found abandoned in Hermleigh with a Corgi friend and taken in by a kind stranger that called TGPR. Stella had obviously lived outside for quite a while, with lots of burrs and mats and a large gash on her side that required stitches, and underweight to boot. Estimating to 18 mos to two years ago, Stella still has some growing to do. 72 lbs at her last appointment, at full weight and with some additional height she will be around the 90+ range once full grown. The biggest part of her mystery is how anyone could abandon this lovely lady; good with dogs, good with cats, house-broken, doesnít bark, incredibly loving, and just the cutest! Her little underbite makes for the sweetest faces. She is not a fan of walking on a leash, but we are building trust and are working on the initial steps with that training. Stella should go to a home with at least one other dog to build her confidence and help with her knowing that itís okay to come back inside after being let out. She doesnít willingly go into her kennel by herself yet, but consistency and delicious treats should get her there! Stella LOVES being petted; in her opinion, her face should be by your face for optimal petting, so learning not to climb onto peopleís laps is on our to-do list. As a larger lady that loves to pyr paw, older kids might be best. While she hasnít officially been kid tested, Iím sure she would be great with them read more

Name: Tex
Tex is a young pyr cross estimated at 3. He really loves to play and have room to run and would do best in a home with a large yard or land. He really likes toys and tends to hog them from the other dogs so making sure there are plenty for everyone will be perfect. He tends to be nervous around strangers and needs a family to help him gain his confidence. Once he has gained confidence he would make a great running partner. Because he is so nervous a home with older children would be best. He loves to put his head on your lap and really likes his tail scratches. He will make sure to remind you to pet him by using that famous Pyr paw to remind you that you have stopped and need to continue He is housebroken and does well with both other dogs and cats. read more

He weighed about 75 pounds at the shelter, but we expect he will continue to add weight now that he is getting good nutrition. read more

Name: Tulip of Springling Litter
Born on Memorial Day (5/27/2019), Tulip was adopted as a 10 week old puppy and recently returned since she and her sister weren't getting along. She does have resource guarding issues, so she needs to be fed and given treats in her own space. She was diagnosed with Immuno-mediated Poly-arthritis and has been taking medications to remedy it. She is doing well now, but it is possible it could reoccur. Tulip LOVES people and is happy to cuddle with you every chance she gets. She is anxious in new situations and will need some time to adjust in a new home (like any dog!). She is a Pyr/German Shepherd/Husky mix. She has the long nose of a GSD, and the Pyr double dews. Her coat is shorter than that of a Pyr and has light tan spots in places. She would do best in a home where her people are home more often than not and as an only dog, or with a calmer dog. Could Tulip be the one for you? read more
