Name: Atticus
Atticus is a sweet boy born on 07/01/2012. 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!!! Atticus is being fostered in Sherman, TX. read more


Name: Bambi
Bambi is a 7 month old Pyr girl who spent her early months in an apartment. She is now in a home with a nice big yard and two adult Pyrs to show her the ropes.

She is anxious for affection and attention and loves to snuggle. read more

She LOVES snuggles will quickly fall asleep in your arms. This adorable little girl will be available for adoption 08/01/2019. read more


Name: Beau
Beau is a neutered 3.5 year old Great Pyrenees male whose country family loved him but had to give him up because he developed a taste for the free range chickens that are part of the family's business. Beau loves children and is happy in the company of other dogs. He knows the commands for "sit" and "shake". Beau is smaller that usual for a male Pyrenees but he has the standard double dew claws and a handsome white coat. He joined TGPR on July 7th and we will have more details about him soon! read more


Name: Bennie
This gorgeous boy was transferred to TGPR from another rescue. He is more Pyr than lab and the other group thought he'd find better placement through TGPR. He's great with other dogs, and must have another dog friend in his forever home. Other dogs help him feel secure so that's not negotiable. He's in foster with corgi's right now, and its a love fest! He's good with kids over age 7 or so, who know how to act around a dog. He is a big guy, and young, and may knock over small kids. He is known to guard his food and high value toys, so he will need to be supervised when those are around. House trained, leash trained, up to date on vaccinations and neutered. This sweet guy is looking for his forever home! read more


Name: Berg
Hey everyone I'm one of 3 puppies found dumped on the side of the road. A nice lady picked us up and we were lucky enough to go into a great foster home in the Dallas area. Berg loves the water, playing with toys and chasing balls! He is very playful and loves chewing on bully sticks and bones during his down time! He is good with all size dogs and cats. He loves getting attention from his humans and he is potty trained! read more


Name: Bernie
Bernie is a 2-3 year old male Pyr whose foster named him Bernie because his coloring reminded her of a St. Bernard. She rescued him after his owner moved away, leaving this good dog alone in the neighborhood. He is doing very well with her two senior toy Poodles and a lively smaller dog. He loves to run and play in the backyard, but is also content to chill with the family in the house. What a handsome, happy dog! read more


Name: Bichon of the Tribute Litter
Bichon (DOB: 3/18/2018) is a super sweet girl and protective of her humans. Her favorite thing is food time.

Name: BoJo
Bo (BoJo) came to TGPR after being found near a busy highway with a red gasoline can tied to his collar! He had a young pup with him and seemed to know it was his responsibility to get them both to safety. We think he is about 2-3 years old and a full Pyr. He has a blocky head and the traditional double dew claws on his back legs. We weren't sure if Bo had ever been inside a house. But at his foster's home, he walked right in and proved to be totally well-mannered. Bo is housetrained, great with other dogs, no food aggression, and loves to be brushed. He walks well on a lead and rarely pulls hard. He does have a very deep and resounding bark and "sounds off" if there is a change in his environment, such as a deer walking past. His foster says simply, "Bo is a great dog and deserves a devoted and loving family where he can spoil them and be spoiled all his life." read more


Name: Brutus
Welcome to the TGPR life big boy Brutus! He is approximately 8 years old, but don't let his age fool you. He still jumps his big ole booty around when he first sees you! He is full of life, love, and kisses! And he definitely lives up to his name weighing in at a whopping 130 lbs.! He knows commands such as come, stay, sit, and shake. He is learning how to socialize with dogs of all sizes, and has learned in only a week's time to get along with all of his foster sibling crazies (even the in-your-face lab puppy) He likes cats too! Apply now to give this sweet, big, bouncing guy a furever home! read more


Name: Buddy Holly
They call me Buddy Holly because I was found in rodeo town, Mesquite Texas and I am full on a country boy!! I am friendly, curious and a lover at heart. "Its So Easy" to fall in love with me. "I'm looking for someone to love" and it doesn't have to be "Peggy Sue" I am told I have some nasty worms in my heart, but "That will be the Day" when they get me down!! "Maybe Baby" I am the boy for you!! PS, don't be turned off by my short hair. I came in kind of rugged, but before I was shaved by my rescuer, I had a "stick em up" helmet head and the beginning of a pretty decent Pyr mane read more


Name: Buzz Lightyear
IN TRAINING - OBEDIENCE Big, sweet boy who was spoiled and babied all his life. His person could no longer care for him so he was turned over to TGPR to find a forever home. Older kids only, and a less active home would be ideal. We dont think he was handled a lot when he was young so hes wary of hugs and such. He would probably do best in a home with adults only. He bonds very tightly and very quickly to his people, and can be protective around strangers. Learning to walk on a leash without pulling. He is very slow to warm up to other dogs, and may not ever warm up to some. We will label him as extremely picky about canine friends. He's heading into his golden years and deserves a loving home of his own. read more


Name: Candy
This little nugget was surrendered to TGPR at age 2 weeks. Her momma was hit by a car and killed, and the owner just gave away the puppies. A good Samaritan got the last one safe and we were contacted. She's eating like a champ. Healing from injury to her foot and tail, and recovering from ringworm. She's being bottle fed by a dedicated volunteer. She will be available for adoption when she reaches 8 weeks of age. read more


Name: Charleston Stone
Charleston was found stray and transferred to TGPR from an animal shelter. They noticed he had a limp, and assumed he had a leg injury. Turns out he has an old pelvic bone injury, which has caused unnatural alteration to his colon. He will need extra supervision and there is a potential for higher than average medical attention. According to our ortho, seconded by A&M vets, there isn't a fix for this, as the break in his pelvic bone has healed already. It's likely he won't make it to old age, which is just heartbreaking. Regardless of this medical issue, Charleston is the HAPPIEST and friendliest puppy you'll ever meet. The injury isn't slowing him down much. He's good with dogs, cats and kids. Given his medical issue, he will need a special home where his activity can be monitored, and he can't get into the big dog body-slam play that is common to this breed. read more


Name: Charlie Brown
Charlie is quite the mover, has a lot to say and is all puppy. If he's not sleeping, he is playing or picking on brother and sister. He likes to think he's in charge of things, but Foster Mom says he has to play nice. He is eating well and has come to realize that food will always be available. He likes to sit back and watch his foster humans with the most soulful eyes I have ever seen. He doesn't want you out of his sight. He will be 9 weeks old and ready to go to his forever family on August 20th. read more


Name: Chevelle
Chevelle and her daughter TGPR Addie, were abandoned in a junkyard. Shortly after we got them safe, they both had puppies! Chevelle is doing well. After nursing NINE puppies, she is a bit thin, but gaining weight now. She is heart worm + and is undergoing treatment. She will need to be spayed in the coming weeks as well. This girl is SUPER people friendly, and very social. She would be great in a home with other quiet adult dogs, or as an only child where she can be spoiled. She is house trained, decent on a leash. One of the sweetest dogs we have had come through our Austin program! read more


Name: Chino
Chino is an 8 month old Pyr/Golden mix (we think) male that is a bit shy at first, but very sweet. More to come as we get to know him better. 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 $200! read more


Name: Darlin
Darlin is about 7 months old and such a beautiful girl. She would likely do best with other large dogs. read more


Name: Devin the Fluffy
This sweet young girl was dumped in this condition. A good samaritan took her in for a couple of days and contacted TGPR for help. TGPR stepped in and she is getting the treatment she needs and will be feeling good in no time. She loves to play with her fur siblings. She is crate trained and 95% housetrained. She has been around little humans( ages 1 - 11) and acted great. She does not walk on leash but we are working on that as well as working on basic manners. read more


Name: Donner
Donner is a sweet, healthy, and very handsome young Anatolian Shepherd Great Pyrenees mix. He is just over a year old and has been neutered and is up to date on vaccinations. He has a lot of love to give and enjoys lots of attention. He is currently being fostered in the Houston area in a family with 3 children and 3 other dogs. His ideal new forever home would have another dog to rough house/ romp/ play tug o war with and or some children to play with him. He would do best in a very active family. He has a lot of energy being such a young dog and if he doesn’t get enough attention and exercise tends to misbehave and create “fun” for himself in the form of chewing or taking himself for a walk. Donner loves to be with his people and gets a little nervous when they leave the house. His ideal family would be home most of the the time and take him with them on outings. He does ok when left for a few hours in the house if food is not left out on counters and he is secured inside with the doggie door closed and he has something great to chew on. He also enjoys listening to music or TV to keep him from getting lonely. Someone is almost always at home with him. Donner has not been crate trained but he knows how to use the doggie door well. He currently goes for a long walk with his pack early every morning. He has not been to a dog park but would probably love it and get some great exercise there. Donner has gotten better about riding in the car and last time he willingly jumped in and did great! He prefers to sleep in bed with his people but would be fine on the floor next to the bed. He likes to lay on the tile floor. Donner likes the outdoors and watching squirrels. His most recent hobby is chasing little lizards around the yard. Donner is a sweetheart that will appreciate your love. He is around 95 pounds but so gentle! Apply today for this sweet snuggle boy. read more


Name: Duke S
Meet Duke. This gentle giant (although on the smaller side for a Pyr) is a total charmer just looking for someone to love. His swaggering gait, twinkling eyes and easy going personality will totally melt your heart. He would be a devoted member of your neighborhood watch and also the welcoming committee. He needs daily exercise and enjoys morning walks, dog wrestling and galloping after a ball. He's housebroken, crate trained, good on a leash, dog friendly and cat curious. He needs to have hip replacement surgery, but can go to his forever home on a foster-to-adopt basis while that happens. Do you have room in your heart to give this guy a forever home? read more


Name: Duke Snider
Duke is a pyrfect mix of playful and sweet. He loves to snuggle and is very curious. He love bath time, and of course food. He and his siblings were dropped off at a shelter covered in fleas and ticks and were very hungry. He is still learning that food will always be available. He will be 9 weeks old and ready to go to his forever family on August 20th. read more


Name: Emmy
Emmy is a pretty spayed female about 6 years old. She came to us because her owner could no longer care for her and wanted her to have a great life. Emmy has lived happily with a large pack of dogs ranging from BIG to teeny. She will follow you anywhere to nibble on a Purina Pupperoni treat. At 104 pounds, Emmy has the traditional "full body" Pyr physique, and a lovely white coat. She enjoys going for leisurely walks and will benefit from a regular "walk date" with her new family. Emmy rides well in the car and seems curious about what adventures lie ahead for her! read more


Name: Fiona
Fiona is a gorgeous, fun loving Pyr! She came to us as a puppy, having been a gift to someone who wasn't in a position to raise her. She much prefers life outdoors, so we gave her an opportunity to live as a working dog. Unfortunately, she decided that working isn't really her passion. She's too much energy for the livestock, and she mostly wants to play. This girl LOVES water and mud. She will come inside in short bursts to cool off and rest on the couch, and then she's back outside loving life! If you think this girl might be for you, get your application in! This adorable sassy sweetie won't be with us long! read more

Gunner is an adorable approximately 4 month old puppy with the most gorgeous blue eyes! We think he might be mixed with an Aussie. He gets along with everyone and has the best personality. Get your applications in because he won't last long. read more


Name: Gypsy Rose
My name is Gypsy Rose, born approximately 05/2018. I am still quite a pup. Therefore I am exuberant, love to play with other dogs both big and small. I will take an experienced dog lover because I am still learning not to jump and that I do not always have to bark loudly at another dog right off. I have been around cats most of my life, and they're fine; I just walk on looking for someone else to play with. I am well into my training for sitting and I do well on a lead. Other than me being a loving life young pup, I would be a great family dog. And by the way...those of you that don't want the big hairy dog, I have a wonderful smooth coat and the dominant trait, of the double dews. Come and see me at the monthly Denton meet and greet at Petsmart. read more


Name: Harlan (now Harley)
Harley was adopted as a very young puppy, but recently returned due to an aggressive dog at his adopter's home. He is 10 months old and such a great boy! We think he is a Pyr/Dalmation mix. He is neutered, completely potty trained, and has completed 6 weeks of obedience training. He goes to doggie day care and socializes well with other dogs. He will stand up for himself with aggressive dogs. He is good with cats but likes to chase them for fun. He is really chill and prefers to be inside. He would love to find a calm and loving home! read more


Name: Heaven
Meet Heaven! Such a lovely, sweet girl. Cared for by a wonderful woman who took her in a few months ago. Heaven was 19 lbs, and a year old!! She has since been well cared for, and is just about to a healthy weight. She is good with people of all ages. Heaven is a little on the alpha side, so she's good with most dogs. She's lived with cats too! She is house trained, crate trained, and her leash skills are much improved. She does resource guard so she needs to be fed separate from other animals and be contained with chews/treats. Can't blame her... being 19 lbs as an adult pyr, she has good reason to fear hunger! She's a gorgeous girl, likely a Pyr/golden mix. Available for adoption after 08/01/2019 read more


Name: Honey Belle
Honey Belle is an approximately 4 year old sweetie. She gets along with other dogs and loves people. She asks for pets, but is not demanding. Her skin condition may be caused by hormones and the Vet is hoping getting her spayed will take care of it. More to come as we get to know her better. read more


Name: Hope More
Hope was likely dumped and a good Samaritan brought her home to care for her. She is a little over a year old. She is great with all size dogs, good with cats and loves people of all ages. She goes on jogs in the morning with her foster mom and is learning basic obedience commands. She had some separation anxiety when she first came into the rescue, but she is now completely over it. It's possible she might have a re-occurrence of it when she moves to her forever home, but with a little bit of time and patience, I'm sure she will settle in. Would you give this beautiful, sweet girl a chance to trust you and love you forever? read more


Name: Hunter R
Hunter is a beautiful, almost 2 year old, 98 pound boy, who loves playing with his kitty sisters. He is great with older children and adults, but not a fan of rambunctious toddlers. He is crate trained and house trained. He will ring a bell or just wait by the door for you to let him out. He loves laying on the couch, being brushed and being the center of attention. He has some anxiety if left at the groomers for more than an hour. He is looking for a loving family that has children to play with and a yard to run and play in. Could he be the dog you're looking for? read more


Name: Immy
Immy came to us with the last of her litter of puppies, the adorable Thompson. She has been vetted, and aside from ear infections, shes healthy! She is recovering from spay surgery now, and will be available for adoption in mid-August. read more


Name: Indie
MEDICAL HOLD My name is Indie and I am a little squirt! I was born in May of 2017 and I am being cared for in McKinney, TX. Turns out I have a little medical issue that TGPR is really working hard to cure!! 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: Ivory Bryn
Hi, my name is Ivory! I was born in January of 2016. I'm still trying to figure the world out... some things still cause me to be a little bit shy and afraid so I really thrive in a home on the quiet side but I am very gentle and loving. My favorite thing in the world is to have my human pet my head, it is FAB-U-LOUS. I guess I have this thing called heartworms and have just undergone treatment! I'll be available after I recover. I love to have dog friends and I don't mind cats. I prefer to stay outside, but I will come inside as well. Storms and fireworks are super scary, and someone treated me very badly before I came to rescue, so I really need an experienced owner who understands and can help me feel safe and loved. Want to be my furever home?! We can cuddle all the time! I am being fostered in Paradise, TX. read more


Name: Junebug
Junebug is a sweet, energetic puppy just waiting for her forever home! She was adopted, but due to health issues with her owner, she was just returned to the rescue. She is submissive to other dogs, so she will fit into just about any pack. Could you be her forever home? 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. Kato was born on 02/25/2011. 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. Kato is 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 dog who wants and 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. Kato is being fostered in Lubbock. read more


Name: Kirby
This poor boy has spent his entire life on a chain in someone's yard. His owner signed him over to a shelter, and TGPR's amazing volunteers stepped in. Full, they donated funds to cover boarding so we could keep him out of a shelter. Kirby is a playful, goofy boy. He is approximately a year old. Fluffy, with adorable tan markings on his face. His foster mom has been working with him on a leash and he's picked up on not pulling on the leash within a week. He does not know his size and still has some growing left to do and would thrive in a house with other dogs closer to his size to play with. He is a hoot and is happy to curl up on the couch and snuggle but don't stop or he'll give you the pyr-paw swat. read more


Name: Lady B
This girl was companion to someone in financial straits who surrendered her to us so Lady B could have a better life. Dog friendly. Suuuper sweet. Beautiful. This girl has had it rough up until now. No vet history or anything. Looking for her forever home! read more


Name: Leah
Hi, my name is Leah. I was born approximately 9/15/2017 and am a love bug! I came into the rescue from the shelter, along with my four pups. My foster says I look like an Akbash/Collie mix, but I'll never tell! I am extremely patient and walk well on a leash. I am an energetic girl who needs to have room to run, but I'm also content sleeping on the couch. I love swimming, so a pool or pond to play in would be a bonus! I'm friendly with other dogs, kids, and even kitties! Being somewhat young, I still sometimes play like a puppy, so make sure your shoes are put away! I'm sure I'll learn as I mature. I can't wait to find my home! read more


Name: Leo G

Name: Louie
Dog friendly and very peopley. Louie was found stray and went unclaimed by owners. The shelter employees were super worried about him, with a free adoption weekend coming up, so TGPR worked a miracle ans got him safe in a matter of hours. Louie was completely shut down initially, but is learning fast that people are okay. He will need a patient family who will allow him time to build confidence and figure out that the world isnt so scary after all. Good with dogs, but he definitely prefers to stand his time attached to your leg. He ignored the cat when confronted with one. Easy going and quiet. Does not do well in a crate. Learning to walk nicely on a leash. Hes a super sweet boy who he a rough start. Update: 05/06/19 Louie continues to relax and learn to trust people. Available for adoption to a patient family who will give him time to adjust and learn to trust. He's GORGEOUS and so so sweet! read more


Name: Louie aka Lou Lou
This sweet, not so little boy is Louie aka Lou Lou (DOB: 2015). Louie enjoys long walks, snuggles and being around his people. This boy can be either a couch potato or is happy to join you on a run. Louie is a smart boy too! He already knows sit and shake, and is working on lay down. Louie is good around dogs big and small, cats, and kiddos. Louie also likes going on adventures in the car and getting the occasional pup cup from Freddy’s. Louie can’t wait to meet you! He’s being fostered in the North Garland area. read more


Name: Lucas D

Name: Luna Marie
Luna Marie is a timid girl and needs some time to warm up to new people. She is not aggressive, just nervous. She is house and leash trained. More to come as she settles into her new foster home. read more


Name: Magnuss
Magnuss is a silly boy who likes to chew on his toys and play. He is higher energy and would likely do well as someone's jogging buddy. He is working on proper dog interactions as he has a tendency to be a bit forward. His foster said he should have been named "Tigger" as he likes to bounce when he plays. For this reason, he will need an adopter with a 6 foot fence. He is so excited to meet his forever family! Could it be you? read more


Name: Maisie
Maisie came from a shelter, very pregnant. A shy, sweet girl, she warmed up quickly to her foster after she went into early labor. Momma to the Springling Litter, she will be available for adoption in August, 2019 read more


Name: Mandy
Mandy is a super sweet and playful girl, born 4/1/2018. She is being currently attending obedience school in Little Elm. She looks to maybe have some Anatolian or maybe German Shepherd in her, and very likely chocolate lab. We can only guess, Mandy and her brother Doug 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: Marley Mae
Found as a stray, no one claimed this gorgeous girl. She came in with Maximus III, who is likely her son. She's dog friendly, and working on house training. Working on leash walking. Would do best in a home with other dogs to help her confidence. She's learning that people are not all bad. She's wonderful! read more


Name: Marty
Marty is ready to find his forever home! He's been through a LOT, and we will be looking for just the right fit for him. He has struggled to find his place in the world, but after a few months of decompression and stability, he is doing really well! Marty is a big sweet goofball. Loves to go on walks (carrying his stuffed toy), chases around with toys in the yard, and snuggles! He's a leaner - leaning into you for pets and butt rubs. He doesn't bark much, which is a benefit over a Pyr. He's a gorgeous boy who will need consistent structure in order to be successful. He's big for a golden mix (90lbs or so) and we really don't know what exactly he's mixed with, but he is SO CUTE and SMART - it doesn't really matter! Great on leash (working on resolving some reactivity around bikes and other dogs which has come a LONG way). While in foster, he will be receiving regular training as his foster family wants the absolute best for him! His ideal home will be active (a tired dog is a happy dog) and consistent. We envision regular walks/runs at Town Lake, and weekend patio brunches for him. His new family must be open to continuing his training. A large yard is bonus, but not requirement. He would thrive as an only dog, but has been good with other large dogs as well, with proper introductions, which will have the added benefit of keeping him dog social. Potential adopters will be expected to spend some time with him at the foster home ahead of being able to take him home. For this reason, adoption will be limited to the Austin area. He will do best when building a relationship before moving to a new environment. Bonus: Free training during this process! He bonds to his people quickly and strongly. This dog is going to be a PHENOMENAL lifelong partner for someone and we are so excited for him to start the next chapter in his life. read more


Name: Max
We love Max! He is a handsome full Pyr male who will be two years old in August 2019. He is housetrained, heartworm negative, and neutered. Max is in that adolescent stage when Pyrs are still filling out and a little awkward. But he is a lovable guy who doesn't know he's large. As you can see in these photos, Max is a big boy. However, he does not try to go over or under a fence. His original family loved Max. They surrendered him to us only because he was bored and barked too much when left alone outside all day. Max is now in a foster home with other Pyrs to play with and he is doing so well! Recently, he went to a dog park and made friends with a Great Dane and a Corgi! Max loves children and even kept his human boy company at the dentist so the boy wouldn't be afraid. He would love to join an active couple or family who will take him for hikes and adventures! read more


Name: Max Lee
Max is a super sweet 3 year old male. He is great with all people, other dogs, & cats. His favorite thing to do is relax after being homeless for a long time. Max is house and crate trained and knows basic commands. Max would be the perfect fit for any family as he gets along with everyone! 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


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!! Starting the 8th of January he will be moved to Kathliene Anderson for private training in the home read more


Name: Mejuri Bear
Mejuri is a gorgeous and unique looking girl. She came to TGPR from an animal shelter with a limp. Turns out she's got something going on with her hip and her knee. We are working to get ortho consultation and figure out how best to help her. She will remain on medical hold while we work through that. Keep an eye on FB for updates! read more


Name: Mercy
Mercy is a sweet older lady, born in 6/2010. She is being fostered in Daingerfield, TX. Mercy is 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: Mint
Mint and his siblings came to us with a skin condition (likely Demodex) and was very afraid of people. He is feeling better, putting on some weight and starting to grow some hair back. He has the typical Pyr double dew claws. He loves to play with his sister and foster brother. He is a little vocal when he wants something and will talk to you. He is very affectionate and loves to be hugged. If you give him a kiss on the forehead, you can see him smile. He is well mannered, has good listening skills, and is very eager to please and learn. He is leash trained and is working on potty training. He knows where the toy basket is located and will go looking for a favorite toy to play with. Bath time is not his favorite, but he tolerates it. Mint is an affectionate puppy that needs a loving forever home. read more


Name: Nala
This sweet senior girl was found running the streets and no one claimed her. She is not a barker or digger, and walks well on a leash. She is house trained and likes to ride in the car. She gets along with other dogs with proper introductions as well as cats. She is looking for someone to love her in her golden years. read more


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 family’s cats as well as a friendly neighborhood kitty and doesn’t 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. She’s 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 someone’s family! Naomi was born in February of 2019 and is being fostered in Midland, TX. read more


Name: Naomi P
Naomi was surrendered to us after she had been rescued from a shelter a year prior. She is heartworm positive, but is not showing any signs of it bothering her and she is available for adoption now. She is house and crate trained and weighs 70 pounds fully grown and filled out. She needs proper introductions with other dogs and would likely do best with another large dog or as an only dog. She is learning to walk on a leash without pulling. It takes her a little while to warm up to new people. She is going to need an adopter that is willing to take some time and have some patience while she adjusts to a new environment. Stability is going to be key. After she is comfortable, she is very loving and playful. read more


Name: Nelson
Nelson was pulled from a kill shelter in the last hours; this big, gorgeous boy is safely fostered near San Antonio, Texas with TGPR now! His foster reports, "Nelson is a sweetheart, he loves to be loved and petted. He wants to be with his person or persons. He is crate trained but I don’t put him in his crate at night he is free to roam the house but he mostly sleeps right beside my bed. Nelson is good with other dogs, (not cat tested) but would also be happy as an only dog as long as he gets to spend lots of time with his human. He loves being brushed. I don’t think Nelson is done growing / filling out he is still a pup at about 1 1/2 years old." read more


Name: Nicholas
Hi my name is Nicholas! I was born in December of 2016. I am being fostered in The Colony, TX. I am a very kind, loving boy! I get along with big and little dogs but my foster does not know how I would do with cats. They say I do well with men, women, and older children but I would be best suited in a home without young children. I might have some sight issues, but if so it does not hold me back! I am still learning this world and would do great with a patient owner that gives me time to adjust in new situations. Once I feel safe with a person or situation I will be a very happy camper! read more

Name: Noel
This adorable girl was in a high kill shelter out in west Texas, just before Christmas. Her people never came for her, so TGPR did! She appeared to be older than she is, due to what appears to be neglect. She's very quiet and seems to be trying to decide if she's safe or not. Gentle and calm. She is in need of a good grooming and a lot of TLC. Dog friendly, and possibly hard of hearing. She has been vetted and is ready to find a quiet, loving home to live out her golden years. read more


Name: Paloma
Paloma (aka LoLo) is an estimated 4 year old female Pyr. She was recently spayed and has quite a playful personality despite being heartworm positive. Fully potty trained, but not a fan of bath time. She has a beautiful trot and walks perfectly on a leash. She is vocal when playing with other dogs, and can be selective about who she plays with. She likes bigger dogs and is cautious around puppies/smaller dogs. She is very treat motivated but never aggressive or guarding of her food. She knows sit and is working on basic commands. She is not interested in toys, only snuggles and lots of head scratches. She likes kids, too! LoLo would be a great addition to any family or a home with other Pyrs. read more

Name: Pierce
Hi, my name is Pierce! I was born in January of 2018. This is what my foster mom has to say about me: "Pierce is a happy and loving fella. He’s spent his whole life outside and has happily taken up residence in our barn hanging out with horses, goats, and chickens. He’s learning his boundaries and manners and seems to be a quick learner. He is most happy to have snuggles, pets, and time to go exploring along the fence lines and woods." Think I would be a good fit for you and your family?! read more


Name: Remington (FKA Turner)
Remington was adopted from us when he was a puppy (twice), but was recently returned because his owner's fiance is allergic. He is a very sweet boy and loves kids. He gets along with dogs of all sizes as well as cats. He would like to have a dog buddy to keep him company. He walks well on a leash and is very gentle. He has hip displaysia, but has existing pet insurance that can be transferred to his new owners. We are working on scheduling surgery for a hip replacement, but he could go to live with his forever family during recovery. read more

Name: Rocky
Rocky is a stunningly handsome neutered year old boy with a gorgeous black and white coat... almost like a Newfoundland Landseer! Rocky has always been raised with love and in the company of other dogs and children. He is a big kid who loves to run and play with the other Pyrs at his foster family. He is crate trained, but his favorite place to relax is on the family room couch with friends.

Sadie is a loveable “big white polar bear,” 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 “go for a run,” 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: Sage
Sage was an original rescue from Bastrop in 2013; adopted 5 years ago with another rescue Sadie. Sage is maybe 7 years old and 74 pounds, but she still runs around like a puppy playing tag. Sage likes to keep an eye on owner’s whereabouts and wants to be the first one petted upon return, even if owner has only been outside for a few minutes. Recently she has been up to her old tricks of climbing the chain link fence, to “go for a run.” Owner had to make a difficult decision to put safety of dogs above their love and companionship and re-home them. Would love it if Sage could be adopted with her best buddy Sadie, but is not a requirement. NO CATS please. read more


Name: Sage Rose
Sage was taken into the shelter with her 2 siblings. All of them had Demodex and were very afraid of people. Her skin is healing and she is putting on weight and learning that not all people are bad. She has the typical Pyr double dew claws. She is very sweet and listens pretty well for a Great Pyrenees. She gets along with other dogs and enjoys playing with her brother and foster brother. She does well with children and does not jump on you. She does love to play in the mud, and tolerates baths. She is leash trained, doing very well on potty training, and sleeping through the night in her kennel. Sage would make a wonderful addition to any family. read more

Name: Sara Cinnamon Sugar
Miss Sara Cinnamon Sugar is a sweet, loving girl who likes to be with her humans and would love to have a couple of kids to run around a backyard with her. She loves cats and chewing on her bones. She will announce someone walking down "her" sidewalk and can be a little food possessive if another dog is in the house, but humans can move her food bowl and feed her snacks with no problems. She would prefer to be an only dog, or have the company of a male dog. Since fostering her, she has learned how to use a dog door and loves to keep you warm at night. When company comes to the house, she is right there to tell them hello and let them know that she is available for kisses and pets. A competent counter surfer, the top of your fridge may get a little crowded, but she will hopefully grow out of that as she is still just over a year old. Could you be her forever family? read more


Name: Savannah Rose
Savannah is a pure sweetheart. She's the most docile of the litter, but doesn't take any nonsense from her brothers. She is always the first to greet you by leaning on your leg and giving you the "Pyr paw" until she gets your undivided attention. She and her siblings were very hungry and covered in fleas and ticks when dropped off at the shelter. She's learning that she doesn't have to fight for her food because there is always more. She will be 9 weeks old and ready for her forever home on August 20th. read more


Name: Sebastian
Due to unfortunate life circumstances, Sebastian is finding himself looking for a new home to rest his big sweet head through his golden years.

Hes such a wonderful guy looking for a cat free home to live out his golden years. He will need a home where his weight issues can be managed. Lots of testing resulting in inconclusive results, he needs a specific diet in order to maintain healthy body condition. read more


Name: Sherlock
Sherlock was a St. Patrick's Day puppy, and it doesn't take an brilliant investigator to know that he sure got lucky when TGPR pulled him from the shelter. He looked so sad there and sure, he needs a little TLC. But he is now BFFs with Crusoe at his foster home and loving his new life! The two puppies play and run around the yard all day long. In fact, we think these two boys would be great together if a home wanted two outstanding pups! read more


Name: Sherlock DeWitt
Sherlock (DOB: 1/15/2019) is a Great Pyrenees mix who was brought into a shelter as a stray, looks very typical Pyr with the addition of tan spots on his white fur. He's still a bit on the thin side but gaining rapidly - the foster can see a big difference after just one week, he's probably up to at least 50 pounds. He's great in his crate at night and is starting to play with toys. He's a baby so he's still learning not to chew on everything but he's smart and wants to please so he's learning fast. Mostly housebroken with just a couple accidents when he "forgot" to go outside first, scared to get in the car but once he's in - will ride along patiently. He does slightly resource guard his food but seems to be getting more comfortable and less reactive over time. He's fine with the foster's cat and absolutely LOVES their other dogs, especially the 7 year old Pyr who he follows everywhere. Sherlock would do great in a house with other dogs, especially young dogs that want to wrestle and play with him. Hasn't been around other people much yet because he's recently vaccinated and came to us with kennel cough but if his reactions to the foster are any indication, he's very friendly and a total sweetheart! Sherlock is being fostered in Providence Village, TX. read more


Name: Shiloh
Shiloh is smaller male Pyr between 12 and 18 months old, who was found so weak from starvation in mid-July that he could hardly walk. However, he is doing really well now that he has food and shelter. He was so happy just to be safe and with caring people. Unfortunately, Shiloh does have heartworms, but TGPR will help him get rid of those very soon. Shiloh is up to date on his vaccines and is fostered in the San Antonio area. read more


Name: Shirley Temple
Meet Shirley Temple! Originally adopted as a puppy, shes back with us again. Her family couldn't care for her any longer and asked us to find a forever family. This sweet girl is 2 years old, house trained, crate trained, good with kids and cats. It takes her a minute to warm up to new dogs. She does resource guard food (shes a Pyr!), so she'll need to be fed separately or in a crate. This lovely girl is looking for a home where she can have plenty of exercise and lots of snuggles! Shes smart and quick to learn. Shes currently in boarding, learning some basic obedience/leash manners. Shes going to make a fantastic family dog! PS... turns out shes a big water baby! UPDATE: She attended a public event recently and did WONDERFULLY! Great with kids and other dogs. Let everyone pet her, and seemed to really enjoy herself! read more


Name: Sloan
Poor Sloan has had a rough go of it! We are so grateful to be able to say we got him safely out of a shelter, just as fast as possible. Surrendered by his former owners in a sorry state, he was badly matted, extreme hair loss around his eyes, heartworm +, massive ear infections, eye infections and still intact. He has been shaved (sores from the matting have been treated), started on allergy medication and antibiotics, and his ears and eyes are being treated for infection. Once he's feeling a little better, he will have surgery - neuter, dental and whatever else he may need. He will be on medical hold while we get him on the road to recovery. Meanwhile... he's proven to be a very sweet boy! He LOVES his crate and prefers life indoors. He will go out to potty, but wants back in immediately. He's been good with most of his foster pack so far. He hasn't found his voice yet, so we can say he's quiet right now. Will need some work on-leash. Just an easy going, laid back, low-maintenance guy! Watch for updates on Facebook! read more


Name: Sono
Sono is an 8 month old likely Pyr/Golden mix. He came to us with a leg injury, but it is healing well. He is very sweet. More to come as we get to know him better. read more


Name: Squirt LGD
Squirt really fits his name. He is a smaller boy and the only survivor of his litter. He is very skittish but follows his fosters around on chores. Squirt is a new intake and learning to trust his fosters slowly. He does approach the whole family for petting, including a 12 year old. We will update his status as we learn more. He is friendly with other dogs of all sizes and is submissive to correction from older dogs. He has been in the pasture is whole life with goats. Questionable around poultry because he will chase, but stops when corrected. Not currently kept with fowl but we will continue his training. Squirt is super playful and puppy-like. He needs to settle down a little more, but it is already clear he will be great candidate for a farm that already has experienced LGDs to lead the way. He shows good guardian behaviors with the goats and sticks with them even when other dogs are out playing. He follows his herd and lays near them as they move about the property. Squirt still needs routine vetting and a neuter and will be brought in as soon as he settles enough to be transported to the vet. read more


Name: Sugar Bear
Sugar Bear is simply the sweetest and most mellow girl! She thinks she is a Pyr, but we aren't sure. This little mixed breed girl hitched a ride to TGPR with a full Pyr who was her BBF. We think she has some German Shepherd in her family tree. Sugar Bear's owner was losing her home and a caring friend of our rescue contacted us to help her. Sugar Bear is approximately 2-3 years old and has made a happy transition to her foster home where she made friends with three other dogs right away. The foster's children love her too. She is a friendly girl who gets along with other dogs and even cats! At a recent meet & greet, Sugar Bear was the dog who helped all the other dogs relax. She had a difficult life before coming to TGPR, but she must have been loved because she has so much love to give back! She knows how to use a doggy door and loves to ride in the car. If you are looking for a companion who walks well on the lead, and gets along with children and other dogs, you couldn't ask for a better choice than gentle Sugar Bear! read more


Name: Teton
He is lovable, loyal, and a beautiful Pyr. Teton enjoys being outdoors and indoors and is great with children. He enjoys running and then sleeping! We enjoy having him and hope to find a hope that values and cares for him like we do. read more


Name: Thompson

Unfortunately, during that exam it was discovered that he has a grade 6 heart murmur. Thompson will be having heart surgery in the coming weeks. He won't be available for adoption until early October. read more


Name: Titan
Titan is a neutered year-old male Pyr who has lived with a young family (including a toddler, a cat, and a canine buddy) since he was a baby. Sadly, his family split up and felt a new home would be best for this sweet boy. He came to TGPR after a battle with fleas, so his usually full coat is thin right now. But that will soon change! Titan has all the attributes that Pyr-lovers want: a gentle soul, a friendly nature, handsome appearance, and a happy start to his life. Who could ask for more? read more


Name: Tobias
Tobias (Toby) is a sweet 2 year old Pyr/Lab mix. He gets along with other dogs, cats and even donkeys and horses. He is very friendly to people and children. He has the short coat of a Lab, but is the size of a Pyr (~120 pounds). He is on medical hold until we figure out why he is walking strangely. 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. Trinity is being fostered in Forney, TX. 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: Turko
Meet Turko, born 4/26/2013. Lover of Goats and ready to defend!! Needs a new flock to care for. read more


Name: Warden (HFD)
Born in June, 2017, Warden was living with some goats and doing his job - barking away predators! Unfortunately, there were neighbors nearby and Warden ended up looking for new job. He is more social with people than he is interested in his herd, so we think he will do best as a Hobby Farm Dog. He is very sweet and gets along well with other dogs. He shows interest in coming inside, so if you would like a dog that enjoys an afternoon siesta in the A/C and follows you on your chores, this is your guy! read more


Name: Willie Nelson
***TGPR Heart Dog*** Heart Dogs have been in the rescue a long time, had several moves, or have special needs. There is a dog for every heart and a heart for every dog. Featured Heart Dogs need a little extra help finding their person. Hey ya'll!! I am "on the road again" in search of my forever family!! Born in October of 2013, I am a mature happy boy, fully vetted and ready for my new home! You can find me in Waxahachie, TX right now. I enjoy playing with other dogs, but I do need slow introductions to get to know them. I am not great at understanding social cues, so impatient or very dominant dogs are not for me! I need a sweet, laid back life of snuggles and adoration. I don't like to be crowded, but once we get used to each other I learn to trust quickly. I have been bounced around enough and need my forever family to find me and fall for me. My foster says I am a love sponge and a dream on leash. I just love being connected to my person in any way that I can. My foster said that a quiet home is what I really need, but I could be a city dog with regular leash walks. Please don't bring me to the dog park! I get so confused about what those other dogs are trying to tell me! read more


Name: Zander
Zander was adopted as a puppy (twice) and just recently returned again due to his adopter's fiance having allergies. He is a laid back guy, but needs to be in a home where he will get an appropriate amount of exercise. He walks very well on a leash, is house trained and knows basic commands. He would do well as an only dog or with another large dog, but will need proper introductions. He is a big, handsome boy and really wants to be with his forever (for real) family. read more

Discipline isn't about showing a dog who's boss; it's about taking responsibility for a living creature you have brought into your world.
