All Adoptable Dogs

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


Name: Allie/Allison
Allison aka Allie is a gorgeous, sweet girl. She was acquired by her person to be a guardian dog, but she really prefers the company of people, escaping to hang out with the neighbors regularly. After an encounter with a snake, and realizing she wouldn't ever be happy working, she was surrendered to the local shelter, who got her to us. She's GORGEOUS and sweet as can be. We will update with personality details as we get to know her (intake 10/17/2018) read more


Name: Amani
I am Amani. I am a very sweet and loving girl that was born 2/27/2017. My name means Wishes & Aspirations. My aspirations are to be adopted by YOU! I know the dog door as well as fully house and leash trained. I am probably a mix between a yellow lab and Great Pyrenees so my stature is tall and strong. I really enjoy watching TV with my foster family and other dogs too. A busy and noisy family is just fine with me! I just roll with the flow. I came to the program with heartworms but have since had the treatment and am doing great! Looking forward to my wishes coming true! Amani read more


Name: Angel
Angel is a lovely mature Pyr girl, estimated to be about six years old. Somehow along the way she lost part of her tail, but she is such a fluff bucket that it just adds to her wiggly cuteness when she wags her short tail to say hello. Angel was abandoned by a family in Uvalde, helped by rescue there, and is making the trip to South Padre over Thanksgiving to join her TGPR foster. She's about to become a beach beauty! We'll have more info about Angel as we get to know her better. She is dog friendly and still likes to play. read more


Name: Aston
(adoption pending J.W.)Aston has the sweetest face! He was found by a teenager who brought him home...just like in the movies...even though they couldn't keep him forever. So now TGPR is looking for a great family for this All-American dog! Aston just wants to be everyone's friend. He gets along with other dogs and even cats. The vets tell us that Aston is about 2 years old. He has been neutered and is ready to celebrate the holidays with his forever family! Pass the turkey please! read more


Name: Atticus
Atticus is the Sheldon Cooper of the dog world. Poor boy was apparently not socialized well as a young dog and therefore is a tad awkward with other dogs. He can be fearful of new people, so introductions must proceed slowly. He responds well to food, so is very easy to train. Atticus loves his walks on the leash. He prefers his kennel as his safe space and will self place if he feels anxious. One he is secure, Attie is playful and very affectionate. Atticus would love nothing more than to have a sofa, or warm bed to stretch out on near his person. He gives the greatest snuffy kisses!! Its best if you keep your trash contained and soap up high in your shower, or else he will find it and it it!! Bazinga!!! read more


Name: Bailey aka Glacier
Bailey: Barnum and Bailey are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. We think they are litter mates, but know they are definitely best buddies! We are offering a special adoption rate of $200 each for the pair. Bailey just wants to be loved. He is ALL about the attention. He is dog and cat tolerant. I say tolerant instead of friendly because he doesn't really befriend them or interact with them much. The obvious exception to that is Barnum. They love to play together. Bailey didn't like sharing attention at first, but has settled in with my 2 other little dogs and 5 cats nicely. He LOVES people (including kids) and follows his foster mom around everywhere. He enjoys going on rides in the truck, playing in water and being brushed. He knows basic commands, walks well on a leash, is house broken and sleeps quietly in his kennel. Bailey is a Great Pyrenees / Lab mix, is about 3 years old, weighs 98 pounds and is heart worm +, but being treated for that. It does not affect his day to day activities. He is beautiful, loyal, sweet and just waiting for his forever home. read more


Name: Barnum aka Bo
Barnum: Barnum and Bailey are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. We think they are litter mates, but know they are definitely best buddies! We are offering a special adoption rate of $200 each for the pair. Barnum is the epitome of chill. He is dog, cat and people (including kid) friendly. He just loves everyone! I believe he is Great Pyrenees / Border Collie mix. He is low energy, super docile and THE sweetest boy. Give him a nice cool floor to lay down on (or a comfy couch), some loving, and he is happy as can be! He even smiles for you! He would definitely be a lap dog if you let him. He is house trained, walks well on a leash, knows basic commands and sleeps quietly in his kennel at night. He enjoys being brushed, loved on, playing with Bailey and riding in the truck. Barnum is about 3 years old, weighs 88 pounds and is heart worm +, but being treated for that. It does not affect his day to day activities. Would you give him his forever home? read more


Name: Beau
New to TGPR Nov 2018. Gorgeous, young male Pyr. VERY Sweet and laid back. UTD on vaccinations, neutered, and just a great all around guy! Everyone who meets him falls in love. He won't be available for long! read more


Name: Bella Alva
Bella is such a beautiful, little girl! Little for a Pyr that is, at 2 years old she is only about 60 pounds! Bella takes some time to warm up but once she does, she is super sweet and loving. Bella loves and is most comfortable with other dogs around. She gets very protective of her home and her people. Bella would do very well in a home with little foot traffic and people willing to give her extra TLC. read more


Name: Bichon of the Tribute Litter
Bichon update: Bichon is a super sweet girl and protective of her humans. Her favorite thing is food time. She finds her crate to be her safe place and sleeps in it at night and uses it for naps during the day. Plays well with other dogs, but is wary when approached while with one of her human family members. Fill out your application so you can come meet her! Hi! My name is Bichon and I am an Anatolian mix with double dew claws, born approximately 3/18/2018. I am female and am looking for my forever home. I LOVE playing in the water! I very much have the Great Pyrenees traits. I'm quieter and more reserved though. My foster says I'm very smart! My siblings and I were rescued from the shelter. My 4 litter mates and I are named after other dog breeds to pay tribute to all the dogs out there. read more


Name: Birdie
Birdie is super sweet and loves her new foster family. She enjoys playing with her foster brothers and sisters. Will update as we learn more about this beautiful girl. read more


Name: Brandy
Mom was a Pyr, dad??? This is the shy girl of the bunch. Calm and quiet, not too sure what's going on. New to TGPR 12/9 read more


Name: Butters Worth
Butters is approximately 2 yrs old. She was found and cared for by a good Samaritan for several months before coming to TGPR. She has the sweetest personality and loves attention and to be petted. She is house trained and crate trained, although she has to be coaxed to go into crate but once in, she sits or lays right down until it's time to get out. She gets along great with the other dogs in her foster home as well as children, although she does accidently knock the little ones down when she gets excited. She is a little skittish at times, mainly with sudden movements or loud noises but appears to be improving daily. She lived with a cat for a couple of months prior to coming to TGPR. She does need work on her leash skills. She is treat motivated so we've been working on gaining her trust first. read more


Name: Capuyo aka Cappy
Cappy is on Medical Hold for now after he took a walkabout and was hit by a car!! He has two hairline pelvic fractures and will require crate reset for 4-6 weeks. Born in 2016 he is a 75 lb, Pyrenees/Lab mix and he is a sweetheart. He is very mellow, and gets along with all people, kids and other dogs. His life started living in a backyard where he got bored and escaped all the time. His owners took him to a shelter and TGPR rescued him. He is still learning the difference between toys and non toys. He enjoys running around with the dogs. Cappy is crate trained, house broken and LOVES to cuddle! He is extremely busy during the day, but at night when it's time to chill, he will be a lap dog and watch tv with you. He doesn't seem interested in cats, he likes humans and other dogs better. Living with a family, he has not escaped. He needs guidance on what he can and can't have but is willing to learn and wants to please. Cappy loves to run so he might make a good running buddy! Cappy will need a 6' fence or higher, or someone to supervise him if left alone outside for too long. read more


Name: Chia
Chia here!! I am a friendly farm girl that kind of blew it as a chicken pyr. You would too if the nice lady next door was feeding you raw chicken meat!! I am good at watching over goats, sheep, Llamas and zebu( mini cattle). I get along fine other dogs or barn cats. I loves people but my job is more important. My goal is to protect and I will do so with a very loud deep protective bark. You can put me in a truck and I ride fine. If you have a place for me, please go to and fill out an application. read more


Name: Cody
Hi! My name is Cody! I'm a sweet, loveable guy who just had a run of back luck. My brother Maxwell and I had it pretty good... you can see we didn't miss any meals! Our new vet doesn't think it's "thyroid", whatever that means. A couple of months ago, our mom got sick and passed away. We are pretty sad about it, but her daughter was amazing and brought us home with her. She can't keep us forever, but wanted to be sure we got good "forever" homes with families who understand the needs of bigger guys like us. If you think a big, fluffy love-bug might be missing from your life, please fill out the application! We'd love to meet you! P.S. as a bonus, my adoption fee is only $250! read more


Name: Comanche
Comanche is a wonderful, big guy. His owner passed away and extended family worked hard to keep him out of the shelter. He's a chill senior. He does have a thyroid issue, which will require medication for the rest of his life, but it's pretty inexpensive. He was horribly matted and dirty, so he had to get shaved down, but now that he's on good food and meds his coat is really coming back in nicely. A sweet guy who is good with kids and other dogs, he loves to roam and lay in the backyard as much as he likes to lay on the rug and snooze. read more


Name: Dalilah
Hi, I'm Dalilah or Lila for short. I'm just a young girl, not quite 2. I LOVE to play with other dogs my size. My mom got sick and wanted me to have the best life possible so I've been living with some TGPR foster humans. Here's what they have to say about me: I adore my foster dude. I go in my kennel easily, and I am not phased to be in it, even if the humans are home. I am 99% potty trained; after my first accident in the house the first day, I have had perfect house manners. I love to play and walk, because I'm still a young girl... I still get excited and don't always know how to contain it so I pull a little but once I'm tired I do just fine. I know sit, and am always gentle when taking treats. I don't mind the car, though the vet is a scary place for me. When I am tired or anxious I like my space from the foster dogs and humans. I was very anxious to come to a new home away from my mom so it's taken me a little to adjust. I will need a patient and understanding forever human to adjust in the beginning, but once I trust them we will have an inseparable bond. I hung out with a toddler at my old home, but my foster humans think I'd do better with children school age and above. My old mom told TGPR I did well with cats too! read more


Name: Dmitri
Big beautiful boy. Super friendly and affectionate. Gets along with dogs and kids and loves his foster family. He's right up on the couch so as not to miss any pets. He loves to go for walks. A little confused about housebreaking, but his foster is working on it. read more


Name: Donald
Hi, my name is Donald and I am a fluffy friend, born in August 2017. I was found wandering with my friend Daisy. I enjoy having my belly rubbed and my paw patted. I love tasty snacks like cheese, treats, and bacon grease....YUM! I love kids and anyone that wants to spend time with me. I am a little fearful of other dogs so I sometimes get a little protective of myself. I have never been with cats so I donít quite know how I will react. I am learning to walk on a leash and obey basic instructions like sit, stay and come. I definitely love being outside and exploring! I would love to meet you if youíre interested! UPdate from foster: Donald is quite the velcro dog and is very loving and playful. Learning new commands each week. He's doing very well on leash so will be starting regular walks. read more


Name: Doug
Doug is a super sweet and playful big boy, approx 5-6 mos old, who looks to maybe have some Anatolian or maybe St Bernard in him, and chocolate lab from mama. We can only guess, Doug and his sister Mandy were found running loose as a litter with a mama chocolate labrador as people nearby were trying to shoot at them to get rid of them. Mama and 2 siblings didn't make it, but luckily they found a sweet loving family to help them find forever homes they deserve. read more


Name: Dove
New to TGPR- on hold read more


Name: Eddie [aka Hays]
Hays (now called Eddie) has come a long way since entering TGPR in July, emaciated and alone with a broken electrical cord tied around his collar. He's now at an ideal weight (84 lbs) and happy and confident and looking for his furever home! He loves going on walks. At the dog park, he likes meeting new dogs, but his #1 goal is getting petted by as many people as possible! At home he just wants to rest his head in your lap and fall asleep while you pet him. He looks like he might have some yellow lab in him, with those classic ears, shorter hair, and squareish face. He also sleeps through the night, barks very little, and sheds very little (though his coat is still growing back). But with the super-soft fur on his head, double dews (actually, 3 dews on one back foot!), and complete lack of interest in fetching, he's probably mostly pyr! He's totally house trained (we don't know about crates), walks on a leash happily without pulling, rides in a car, and he doesn't seem at all interested in the neighbors' cattle, llama, or poultry when we walk by (don't know about cats). He's very treat-motivated, and he learns quickly with positive reinforcement methods. For a handful of kibble he'll let you clip his nails, clean his ears, or put up with a vet's poking and prodding. He knows his name name now, and he lies does on command, but he has a very selective memory about the meaning of "Come", lol. He does have some resource-guarding tendencies that occasionally come out when another dog crowds him while he's eating or being petted, but he's all bark and no bite, and it seems to be getting better. Deep down he is still a bit anxious (thunderstorms and confined spaces are no fun either), but we're seeing his happy face and zoomies more and more often as the weeks go by. We think Eddie might be happiest as an only dog, probably not in a house with small children. With regular walks and some elbow room, he might even be an apartment dog. What he wants most is his very own hooman BFF to snuggle with on the couch - read more


Name: Eleanore
Eleanore, or "Ellie", came to us because she doesn't get along with smaller dogs & puppies. She is very sweet, is housetrained, and will go in a crate when you leave the house, she just doesn't love being in it when her people are home. She's a smaller framed girl, and likes to romp and play with the other Pyr in her home. read more


Name: Ferris aka Fenris
Update from foster: Well Ferris is not only adapting well to a life filled with love and TLC, but also learning from his foster sister Lucy how to love fuzzy blankets, soft sofas and his cozy egg-crate bed. Ferris is living up to the nickname weíve given him ďFerris BuellerĒ, by giving this first time foster mom a serious scare when he plowed his way through a plank on the fence gate - he didnít want me to leave the house, apparently! And learning how to open the trashcan with his foot, just to get our attention! Sweet Ferris loves pets and scratches, is eating wonderfully and sits for food and treats. His new favorite thing is walks 2x a day, he jumps in excitement when the leash comes out. What a difference a week can make! I will have to be on medical hold for a while as I am very skinny and have lost a lot of my muscle tone, I am very sweet and I know it will take time to get me up and running, I am going to a new home tomorrow where I will be well taken care of and once I put on some weight I can get neutered Considering what I've been through all my life a nice warm bed and good groceries sure does sound good More to come after I settle in read more


Name: Freyja
Freyjaís smiling and playful personality makes life fun and she will always be by your side. This 2 year old girl enjoys playing outside, and talks regularly with the neighbors, passing birds and squirrels. But her favorite time is spent sitting with her head on your lap for soft pets or just relaxing next to you. Freyja gets along great with her housemate, a border collie named Hurley. However, she prefers to eat her food and snacks alone. Sheís house trained, spayed, gets along with other dogs and kids, and is doing great at learning her basic manners and how to walk on a leash. Sheís looking forward to finding a loving home. read more


Name: Galavant
Galavant is happy, handsome neutered male who will be two years old in January. He was adopted by a young family last February and they love him. But they've realized that a big active dog, even a super-friendly one, is too much for them. At first, Galavant was their only pet and probably bored. He amused himself by digging up the grass, flower beds, and a carpet. He even put a hole in a wood slat fence so that he could put his head through to bark at the Chihuahua next door. Recently, the family added a 4-month old Husky pup. The boys are best buddies and it has made "a huge difference", according to his owner. He loves having a friend, even a much smaller one. Still, the family feels he needs more space than they can offer. He loves their kids and is a real love bug without a mean bone in his body. If you are looking for a great dog who is dog and kiddo friendly (and even cat tolerant) then Galavant would love to meet you! This is a great dog! read more


Name: Grizzly
Grizzly was born about August 2017. HE came from a goat farm in OK and still very much wants to be with his peeps. We have tried him with goats but hes just not happy. Grizzly wants to be a companion dog when he grows up. So his foster said lets give it a whirl and see how it goes. Well Grizzly is one happy little boy... he claimed his fosters recliner as his own but is more than happy to share it if it means cuddle and petting time!! Hes housebroken and enjoys his chew toys and gets along with other dogs. You never know this could be the right furkid for you and your family! read more


Name: Grizzly Man
Grizzly was surrendered to TGPR when his family had to move unexpectedly, and couldn't find a place to live that allowed big dogs. He came to us with his girlfriend Bessie and two kiddos, Bacon and Pork Chop. Grizz is a sweet boy, though he's a bit shy and reserved at first. He's now up to date on vaccinations, and has been neutered. We haven't seen him around any dogs, other than his girlfriend, so we'll update more about that once we have had more time with him. He is positive for heartworms and will need some R&R before he's healthy and ready to rumble. He is adoptable at this time, as long as adopter is comfortable with taking him through treatment - which requires a couple months of crate rest/light duty. read more


Name: Guinness
Guinness is about 2 years old and was a stray in East Texas He is now in a foster home with kids and other dogs and he is doing fine. A super friendly sweet boy that loves to play. He is ready for his forever home. read more


Name: Gypsy Rose
Brand new to TGPR! My name is Gypsy Rose, born approximately 05/2018. I'm just a pup and still learning the ways of the world. TGPR thinks I'm Pyr mixed with Giraffe.... because I am just SO tall. I keep telling them I'm not Giraffe, but they don't believe me! I love to play with the other foster puppy I'm bunking with. My foster mom is working on leash manners, along with teaching me how to sit. I get a little grumbly with my food, so foster mom is feeding me separate for now. It may be that I had to fend for myself and don't know when my next meal will come - I think I'll learn in time that meals are steady. More to come as my foster mom gets to know me! read more


Name: Heath
New to TGPR- mom is Great Pyrenees, dad could have been anything! read more


Name: Heidi
McKinley has spent the last 8 or so years at a pet sanctuary in Iola. The owner passed away a few months ago and they needed to find homes for all these older and/or hard to adopt dogs. McKinley lived in an old empty house with a few other dogs. She has a running buddy Heidi and we couldn't leave her behind. These girls are super friendly and sweet. McKinley will not leave you alone for pets even climbing in your lap to get closer. She isn't worried about other animals at all. We had to shave a few places as she was so matted, she looks a little ragged. She is also a little wobbly but still gets around fine. Heidi does like to stalk the cats, but just looks at them sternly. She did grumble at two of my other dogs, but that was all talk. She is 100 pounds of moose and her tail doesn't stop wagging. If you would like to help these girls acclimate back to love and pets and soft beds and maybe an adventure or two, fill out your application now. read more


Name: Hershey

Name: Indie

The Doctors don't know why but my kidneys aren't working properly. While things are improving and I feel a LOT better, I am not out of the woods yet. My foster says that despite my health issues I am playful loving and sweet. Do you think you could take me on? I promise I am a good good girl. read more

Name: Jasmine P
Update from new foster: Jasmine gets along fine with his two male dogs and cat. Doesn't feel the need to be alpha. Quickly became a happy part of their family. Jasmine is a 2-3 YO Pyrenees who made a nice friend who fed her and then discovered she had had 2 puppies in the woods nearby (Aladdin & Genie). She called TGPR to help and we have her little family with us. Jasmine gets along with other dogs but prefers being the alpha. She is super sweet, loves to be near her humans and get loves. read more


Name: June Cash

I am house trained as well as doggy door trained. I live with several other dogs both big and small. I love to play and play with people, kids and other dogs. Boy do I love the water!

Name: Juno
Doesn't Juno have the best face?? Born 2016, her original owner moved into an apartment and couldn't take her along. She was moved to a friend's home, where she's done well. They want her to have a loving forever home, so reached out to TGPR. She's good with kids, although she loves to jump up for hugs, so bigger kiddos will be better. She loves to play, higher energy for a Pyrenees, so she'd do well as a hiking buddy. She has been working through obedience training, is a big people pleaser, an wants nothing more than to be loved! Good with kids and other dogs, and should be cat friendly as well. This girl is an all around family dog who will make for a wonderful forever friend! read more


Name: Kane
Can you believe this gorgeous boy ended up in a shelter? We estimate he was born May 2018. He's the healthiest puppy we've pulled out of a shelter all year! He's spunky and playful. Good with other dogs. He will need a playmate or solid exercise plan to keep this active guy happy. He does have a bit of a mouthy habit that we are working on breaking, so he will do best without small children around. He is picking up house training with ease! This guy is going to be quite the looker! And a whole lot of fun! read more


Name: KATO
Kato is a people-friendly, dog-friendly, and cat-friendly "gentle giant" whose family was not able take him when they moved out of state. He loves attention--especially belly rubs, but any kind of petting and loving--which he would much rather have than the finest food. If you stop too soon, he will reach out to you with a giant paw and encourage you to continue. He is about 6-7 years old, neutered, chipped, and up to date on all shots and his ProHeart6 injection. Kato has a beautiful light and darker tan coat, and he has the classic Pyr double dew claws. More important, Kato is a lovely animal being who needs a loving family and will surely be a loving companion. Kato apparently has spent most of his life outside, though he would love to spend most of his time inside. We don't know if he is totally house-trained, but after being inside for several hours he always answered nature's calls outdoors. Kato is a 124-pound Gentle Giant who nuzzles our cat and is gentle with everyone, though he occasionally barks at people unexpectedly walking in the alley behind his house. He and his yard mate, a high energy black Labrakita, get along well. When he's not being petted Kato enjoys lying in the sun watching the birds and squirrels. read more


Name: Lana
Lana is a beautiful 3-3 1/2 year old Great Pyrenees/Golden Retriever mix. She is current on her shots, flea and heartworm preventatives, in good general heath, and is heartworm negative and is spayed. Lana is smart, playful, and affectionate with both adults and children. She especially seems to like men. Lana can be ok with other pets, but occasionally will become growly at them if she thinks they are trespassing her space when she doesn't want them near. Lana is observant and knows how to use the doggy door. She is not a fence jumper, but can open a chain-link gate with her nose. She walks calmly on leash, loves cuddling, a good tummy rub, being brushed, and will readily load up into the car for a good ride. She would do well with either a family, a single adult, or couple who will love and pamper her. read more

Name: Loki
Loki comes to us heartworm + and with what appears to be a neglectful background. He's very thin and doesn't have any manners. Unaltered at the moment, we aren't sure about his house training status. He's smart and SUPER friendly, loving to stand up to give big hugs! He's a goofy young guy, at approximately 2 years old. No small kids... He has NO IDEA how big he is. read more


Name: Lolie
New to TGPR- on hold read more


Name: Mandy
Mandy is a super sweet and playful girl, approx 5-6 mos old, who looks to maybe have some Anatolian or maybe German Shepherd in her, and very likely chocolate lab.

Mama and 2 siblings didn't make it, but luckily they found a sweet loving family to help them find forever homes they deserve. read more

She is absolutely awesome at catching treats when tossed to her. She catches about 99.9999%. She is very food/treat motivated and is quickly learning some basic commands. She is currently being fostered in the Lubbock area. She will have her spay surgery Dec. 5th read more


Name: Marko
Marko is a gentle senior guy (about 12 years old!) who came to us when the sanctuary he was living in had to close. A TGPR foster offered her home as his new "retirement haven". Pyrs seem to improve with age, growing more and more mellow. Marko is no exception. His foster already loves his sweet disposition! He has the cutest "rough" bark, and just loves attention. He would be a wonderful companion anyone who wants to share their life with a handsome companion in his "golden years". read more


Name: Marleigh
11/21 We got this gorgeous girl from a NE Texas shelter. Came in with a gun shot wound and shattered leg. Will be on medical hold for a few weeks while she gets healthy. She was a farm dog so we will be working with her on getting used to people and the good life of a beloved family member. She is working on learning how to walk on a leash, and house training. Shes very shy, though she has no aggressive tendencies at all. Due to her fearfulness of noises, she should be in a calm home without small children. read more


Name: Mars
New to TGPR 12/9. Mom was Pyr, dad?? Sassy and fun, this kiddo will make a great active family dog! read more


Name: Maxwell
Hi guys! My name is Maxwell. My brother Cody and I had a good life in north Texas, but then our mom got sick and passed away. We are pretty broken up about it. Her amazing daughter came and got us, though, and brought us home with her. She was really worried we would end up in a bad, scary shelter! We are so grateful to her for that. We are easy going, loveable, fluffy guys who are looking for a home where we can lay around, maybe play a little, and go for walks. As you can tell, we didn't miss any meals, and need a bit of a diet. Our doctor doesn't think it's "thyroid", whatever that means. I think that's a good thing? Anyway, if you are looking for a laid back companion (or two?), all you need to do is fill out the application and someone will be in touch! P.S. My adoption fee is only $250! read more

If you would like to help these girls acclimate back to love and pets and soft beds and maybe an adventure or two, fill out your application now. 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: Melman
Melman was named after the goofy giraffe in the kids' movie, Madagascar, because right now it's very easy to see all his Pyrenees freckles on his body. And he has such long legs! This spunky little dude has just come to us looking more like a Mexican Hairless than a long-haired Great Pyrenees. But now that he is getting good medicine, plenty to eat, and lots of love, his hair is already starting to come back. Looks like he will have a beautiful coat, possibly with badger markings. Meantime, he's learning his house manners and having a great time with his fosters big dogs. For a puppy just born in May, he's learning fast! read more


Name: Mena aka Tara
Mena has been living with her pack up until now. She is in a foster home and is warming up to her foster mom and poodle brother. She prefers to be outside, but can be enticed inside with treats and doesn't mind the crate. She is doing well with housebreaking. More will be added as her foster gets to know her better. read more


Name: Mercy
Mercy is a sweet older lady, born in 6/2010. Calm and laid back. She doesn't take no gruff from the young whipper snappers and will put them in their place, even if that means leaving her nice peaceful corner to get a little sassy with an over-exuberant fellow dog. She's great with male and female dogs as long as they are moderately chill. Some energy okay, but she's the kind of dog that would yell "Get off my lawn" while shaking her fists in the air. She came to TGPR after being found at an abandoned chicken house very sickly and hardly eating. She's perked up with antibiotics and eye drops and her true personality is showing. She's a sweet girl and good with kids (but given her age, kids shouldn't be allowed to rough house with her). She loves her 5 year old girl and greets her with a kiss before settling in her corner. She likes having a corner of cold floor for herself. Uses a doggie door just fine and does not use the furniture. She's PETITE...67 lbs...super fluffy on short legs with double dew claws. She lets you love on her but likes to spit out her pills (typical). If you're looking for a sweet AND grumpy girl who is well mannered and wants to prowl the house, she's your gal. Update from foster: Mercy has a touch of arthritis controlled by 1/2 a pill a day (cost $25 per month) and now has some pep in her step and is eating well. read more


Name: Murphy

Name: Naomi
Naomi and her four puppies came to TGPR scared and in need of a lot of TLC. Naomi stayed at a wonderful boarding facility where a kind trainer helped her with socialization and she then moved on to a foster home where she is doing very well. Naomi absolutely adores her furry foster brothers so it will be a requirement that she goes to a home with at least one other dog. She currently lives with three boy dogs and loves running, wrestling, and laying together with them. She has met many other dogs and always does fantastic with making new friends. Naomi has met her foster familyís cats as well as a friendly neighborhood kitty and doesnít mind them at all. She has been around children and with instruction to approach slowly and calmly, she has done very well with them. She enjoys taking walks and moseying along while taking in the scenery and has discovered that splashing in water is one of her favorite activities! Noami is an independent gal and is more interested in hanging out with her dog pals than her humans. Sheís still a bit shy and is not your typical cuddly dog. However, she does show love and appreciation to her foster family by excitedly greeting them and giving them licks on their hands. She's happy to have a comfy spot to sleep on, some bones to chew on, and is thrilled when she receives treats! She's honestly pretty easy to have around because she doesn't demand attention. This gorgeous girl is going to make a delightful addition to someoneís family! read more

We will have new info about him very soon! read more

Name: Sky
Hi, my name is Sky! My owner is moving and unable to take me with her, so TGPR has promised to find me a new home. My birth date is 2/20/2016. I get along with cats and children, but I am very food/treat aggressive and should be the only dog in the home. I LOVE to be around my people and can get lonely when you leave me for too long! Everyone thinks I'm cute and funny because my tongue hangs out of my mouth. I know some tricks like sit and shake, but I need someone to help me learn how to walk better on a leash. I pull when I get excited. I do get along with other dogs, as long as there aren't food or edible treats lying around. read more

Name: Sunflower
Hi! Iím Sunflower, a happy Great Pyrenees/Anatolian Shepard mix. If you appreciate the intelligence, independence, and look of a gorgeous Great Pyr but prefer someone smaller with a little less shedding, I am your Gal! My first owners bought me at 8 weeks old to be a ďlivestock guardianĒ. With no training, they left me out alone to guard the goats. I was lonely without my mama and kept going back to my ownersí house. They didnít like that. Then at 9 months, I got pregnant by the neighborís St. Bernard and the family gave me up .☹. My new foster family helped deliver my pups. But sadly, all of them passed away. I was devastated, and searched for my babies for three weeks. I found the blanket that they had been wrapped in, and carried it around the house with me. It was such a sad time for all of us. However, I am now a happy, athletic, independent, calm, and stunning one year old! I keep my foster family laughing with my crooked smile and ďgaloofyĒ expressions. I learned to sit in five minutes and always sit patiently for my breakfast. I do need daily exercise and a fenced yard that I can patrol and protect. I walk nicely on a leash, but can be allowed off-leash too. I always rejoin my foster mom after exploring when we are out on our daily walks. I am a good guardian for my people and their menagerie of chihuahuas 😊 I sleep next to my foster momís bed every night and am vigilant for any sounds that might indicate danger. I never sound a false alarm or bark unnecessarily. Those silly chihuahuas are always yapping and snapping at me. I take it with a grain of salt and ignore them. One the chihuahuas and I do a bit of ďwrestlingĒ! I understand how tiny he is, so Iím very careful to play gently. An Australian Shepard foster puppy is my best friend. My foster family also has horses and cattle, which I basically ignore. I currently weigh about 75 lbs. Iím still a growing girl.Iíll never be "huge", but I have a big heart and lots of love to share! read more

Name: Tank
Hey there! My name is Tank. I was born approx 3/2018. While I am a very active and loving pup, I need a family that has older kids and or adults. I do have double dew claws of the Great Pyrenees but the short smooth coat of a lab. I NEED an active family. I know the dog door and am potty trained. I live with several other dogs both big and small and will play and play and play if they have the time to give me. I love the doggy pool so if you are looking for that handsome young man to walk the beach, go jogging around the lake, cuddle up on the Couch to watch tv, you have found your guy! Catch me if you can! Tank read more


Name: Teddy Rose
Hello! My name is Teddy and I am a 1 year old male Great Pyrenees mix. I weight about 50lb and Iím current on all medical stuff. Iím very lazy during the day, itís almost like I only have energy in the evening or when everyone goes to bed. I have two foster cat sisters that I get along with pretty well even though they donít play with me. I also have 5 foster kids that I let climb all over me and play with. They are ages 1.5 to 11 years old. Sometimes when I get to excited I nip at their hands and clothes so they will play more but when they tell me no I stop. I have also been to foster grandmas house and she has 2 dogs. I love to run and play with them but their kind of old and grumpy so I think I would do well with dog brothers or sisters my own age. Iím pretty calm and collected. Most days I usually just lay around on the couch or under the kitchen table. I love to run around the dog park. I am potty trained as long as you take me out every couple of hours or teach me that the doggy door wonít eat me. When Iím outside I like to roam around and watch everything. I only bark at night when the cat wonít play with me. Oh, I can sit and shake for a treat and Iím getting so much better at being easy when I take a treat - my foster baby is almost ready to start giving me treats. Considering Iím only a year old, I still have teeth coming in so shoes are really good to chew up and so are stuffed animals. I love to lay on my back and get belly rubs. I would love to have a forever family that will love me and spend time with me and give me lots to chew on. read more


Name: Tighe
He's a little over 1 yr old now, no longer sick or scared. He's healthy, active & friendly. He appears to be an Akbash mix, but on the small side (65lb?) with a shorter coat, which means much easier to groom than a big fluffer. He's eager to please and highly motivated by both food and attention, and not nearly as stubborn as a regular Pyr, which should make him much easier to train. He's neutered, housebroken and HW negative. He travels well in the car and is not afraid of thunder. He has destroyed a couple pairs of shoes, but otherwise does not chew the house or dig in the yard, which is pretty amazing for a puppy! He's more energetic than a typical pyr, so his ideal home would be with a more active family and/or with other dogs to play with. read more


Name: Timmy
Hey there! My name is Timmy, and Iím a Pyrs mix guy who was born 5/4/2017. My life has had a lot of ups and downs. I was on the run with my Mrs. and a family found us. They realized she was pregnant and tried to keep us all, but after our babies started getting bigger - they realized our whole family was just too much work. They surrendered us to a local animal shelter, where the nice folks contacted TGPR. Unfortunately, my Mrs. got sick and the vet had to let her cross the bridge and go to the beautiful sky up above. It was now me and my kids. They found their furever homes, and it made me a happy daddy. We all want our kids to do well. The will have a very happy life. But now it is my turn to try to find my little piece of happiness. My foster has this to say about me: Iím fully vetted, and heartworm negative. I have house manners, and will let you know when I need to go outside. I know some basic commands, like "No" and "back", but I think itís the Pyr in meÖ I donít always listen! Sit is a bit of a challenge Ė why ask me to sit, when I donít think I want to? I hear about this thing called a crateÖ what is it, and will I want to be in one? Only you can decide that one for me. When Iím not in the house with the family, I have a run outside, where I get to enjoy the fresh air! Iím a chill, laid back guy, but understand, Iím still very much a young pup. My foster calls me a puppy. Hey, Iím not that young! (Am I?) I am learning the difference between toys, shoes, remotes and glasses. (Iím such a smart fellah!) I learn quickly. I donít mean to try and be the boss, it just is my way. I really need someone to take me by the paw, and show me the way. I hear about these furry things called cats, just donít know what one is, and donít know if Iíll like Ďem. And when it comes to other dogs, I will show them whose boss! Iím not fearful of the other dogs! I donít do well if Iím challenged by another dog. If you think I would be a great addition to your family, and continue to teach me, Ask about me! Thanks! read more

Name: Travis

We are sending him to a lady who will help him adjust to a whole new world of sights and sounds. Travis "told" us: Iím approximately 1 year old. I had a rough start in my early months living in a crate all the time. I am still getting used to being outside of a crate although I like my crate for a safe zone when things get too scary for me. Iím learning to enjoy treats and am very food motivated. Unfortunately lots of things still scare me but I am getting better. At my last foster, I enjoyed playing with cats and even had them sleep with me in my crate during the day. Iím learning to enjoy being petted but still concerned with my safety. More to come in a few weeks as I start my journey to a new life! read more


Name: Trinity D
Trinity D, born approx 10/1/17, is a sweet little girl who loves to play with everyone, and snuggle with her humans. She was found as a stray at just 14 wks old, and appears to have a slight unique gait when she walks and sometimes falls easily when trying to round corners on hard floors. We had x-rays done to rule out hip dysplasia, but she seems to be improving with time. She will wake you up to go outside and is doing so well on learning housetraining. She knew how to sit and shake hands and she goes and sits in her crate when it's time for her humans to leave the house. She is extremely smart, and loves to pick out all of the blue toys in the house to play with. She also loves her naps, and even fell asleep while playing with the doorstop once. She looks like a golden lab mix but her DNA test came back with so many good breeds: Rottweiler, herding breeds, Great Pyrenees & Labrador! read more


Name: Trooper

At first other dogs frightened him, but after a few weeks, he is happily playing with his foster's dogs. She is working patiently to show Trooper that he is safe and has nothing to fear. We expect that in a short time, he will be confident and ready for his own family! read more

Name: Tucker_beagle
No, your eyes aren't fooling you. Tucker is indeed a Beagle in a Great Pyrenees rescue group. He's what's now known as a Great Beaglenees!! This poor kid was surrendered to a shelter with his poodle brother, due to a divorce. The family couldn't afford the dogs anymore, and gave them up. When a poodle rescue picked up his buddy, poor Tucker was beside himself with grief and fear. We have some beagle friendly volunteers in our group and they asked TGPR to step in. Of course we couldn't say no! Poor Tucker was miserable - itchy skin, horrible ear infections, and worn down teeth from scratching. His foster is taking wonderful care of him, and he's settled in with his foster family nicely. He even has two other Beagles to play with! He's a REALLY sweet dog: good with kids, other dogs and kids. He's starting to cheer up and feel better, which is a relief to those who know him. Interested in giving him a forever home?
