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: Bertie
My name is Bertie! I came from somewhere around Houston, and was dropped off at a shelter with my 5 littermates as unwanted. But, you know what? TGPR wanted me! I have received great care from a doctor and am growing so fast. Right now, I am still living with 3 of my litter. I am super friendly, and I love being around people, and I did from the start. In fact, I’d rather be around people than my litter. When I go outside, I like to sniff and explore, but I pay attention to where my human is because – did I mention this – I love to be around people. My foster mom says she can tell that humans were not very nice to my brother and sisters and me, and is really impressed how adventurous and affectionate I am. My tail always wags and if you let me, I’ll give you a ton of puppy kisses. I love stuffed toys, peanut butter kongs and bully sticks. If you want, I will show you them – my mom laughs when I show her because she says I look so proud. I probably would not be living my best life if I were outside all the time – but if you want a super smart, happy, food motivated and people centered little girl who has a lot of Pyr DNA in her body, then you should come talk to me. Because I am so excited to see people and be around people, my new family needs to be sure to take me to training so I can learn how to be polite. I am big, and I am enthusiastic. Bertie – that’s my name (until you change it! Promise I’ll learn it fast). I would love you alot if you would love me alot. read more

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!

Name: Bregs
This kiddo loves to play! A sweet, energetic boy, he is house trained, crate trained, good with other dogs, and is leaning basic manners quickly. He is a moose who doesn't yet understand how big he is, so supervision around young children is a must (so they don't get knocked over). He is eager to please, so training should be easy! He's not sure what a leash is for, but is picking up on that skill too. He's a big fluffy goofball, who will brighten up any home! read more

 

Name: Buck
Good Samaritan saw this bug guy get his by a car. The driver who hit him didnt stop. This Samaritan loaded him up in their car, with their kids, and took him to the local shelter for help. TGPR was contacted and we got him medical attention. Luckily, there were no broken bones! H was banged up a bit and is now resting and healing. Hes very shy, behaving as though his early life wasnt good to him. It's okay now, hes in good hands. On top of all that, this kiddo is also heartworm +.

Name: Buddy Love
Buddy Love is a beautiful, very sweet boy born on 05/01/2017. He is being fostered in Terrell, TX. His foster says "Buddy is royal and regal, scamp and tramp.

Just one look at that sweet face and your heart will go "Awwwww" ;)" Buddy can be food aggressive, gets along well with kids, dogs and cats, but he will chase the cats if they run.

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.

Hi, my name is Donald and I am a fluffy friend, born in August 2017. My foster is taking care of me in Forney, TX. 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, but don't like them pulling on my head or body.... it scares me! I need slow intros to people and dogs, so I can get comfortable. I have never been with cats so I don’t quite know how I will react. I walk well 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 you’re interested! read more

 

Name: Doug
Doug is a super sweet and playful big boy, born 4/1/2018. He is being fostered in Leonard, TX. He 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

Eleanore, or "Ellie", was born in August of 2018. Ellie is being fostered in Mansfield, TX. She came to us because she doesn't get along with smaller dogs & puppies. Ellie 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. Want to be Eleanore's forever companion?! 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: Gareth

Stay tuned as we get to know him. read more

Name: Gypsy Rose
My name is Gypsy Rose, born approximately 05/2018. I am being fostered in Denton, TX. 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.

He is kid friendly, a love bug, likes to sit on the couch with you and he will find any shoe that you have on the floor. He will not drop them he runs and wants to smell and gnaw on them. I don't blame him he's only 3 months old. He is 30lbs right now and is so ready to find a family he can love and that can love him back.

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

Currently going through HW treatment on medical hold for now read more

Name: Lilo
Hi, my name is Lilo! I came to TPGR with my friend Stitch. I am a pyr mix with fuzzy toes and a neat curly tipped tail. I love all humans and really enjoy loving on everyone, even children! Everyone says I am a great farm dog. I do excellent with chickens, goats, ponies and small dogs. I also enjoy accompanying you while you do chores, but I promise I won’t get in your way! I like to run the show when there are other ladies around so I guess that makes me a little alpha but if everyone is okay with that we will get along just fine! I’d love to settle down in the country with you! 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.

Name: Louie
TRAINING HOLD Dog friendly and very peopley. This guy wont be with us long. He 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. read more

 

Name: Lucia
When TGPR saved me, I was very sick. The people who had me before did not care for me like they should, so I came in with lots of parasites – more than my brothers and sisters. It made me throw up, and I just didn’t feel like playing However, TGPR had me go to the doctor and I took lots of medicine and I am all better now. Of my brother and sisters, I am the smallest, at about 22 pounds. My tail goes constantly and my foster mom calls me “wiggle bum.” I am really polite when I take treats and even though at first I am a little reserved with new experiences, I am very curious and I come around very quickly. It would help me a lot ff someone wanted to take me places and help me build my confidence, and would do training with me. If you are kind and gentle and give me treats and toys, I will quickly wiggle up to you and will give you the sweetest little kisses. Do not be fooled by my size – I have the double back dew claws and the heart of a Great Pyrenees. Don’t you want to be my family? read more

 

Name: Mandy
Mandy is a super sweet and playful girl, born 4/1/2018. She is being fostered in Leonard, TX. She 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

 

Name: Marley Mae

Name: Marty
Marty is an 85 lb., 3 year old, active, funny, snuggly guy, who loves attention, and would like nothing better than to be right next to his people all the time. Right now he is using a dog door into the backyard, and has no accidents in the house. Marty is great with his pyr foster sister and plays really well with the foster’s cat. He loves to play, and run in the yard with the other dogs, loves dog toys, and loves to go for walks. He spends most days taking one toy out of the toybox, carries it into the yard, and then goes back to get the next toy, repeat until all toys are in the yard. Marty would do great in a family with kids 10yrs +, he does not like being an only dog and would do best in a home where someone can help him know who is in charge. (We have no experience with him around smaller children). He was rescued just in time to avoid euthanasia and is loving life with his fosters. His thick, long hair could not be saved despite many baths and brushings, but he really seems to enjoy the cool, short do while we wait for the long fur to grow back. He really hates the crate, and we have not been using it – furniture is still intact. We may start crate familiarization to help with a future family, but we have not needed it. He really loves to be outside, but equally loves to sleep next to his people at night. 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

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: Mr. Darcy (aka Bear)
Meet Mr Darcy (aka Bear)!! Born approximately 1/9/2015. Mr. Darcy is being fostered in Anna, TX. He is a total love bug! He's great with all dogs he's met, has excellent manners with cats and LOVES children. He doesn't bark much, but vigilantly patrols the yard. His story is a sad one... Owners pulled up to the shelter with uhaul connected to truck. Said they were moving and dumped him. He was matted so badly that hair was ripping away from his skin. The dirt was so thick that his skin was scaly and he was brown instead of white. After a good groom, he's still stained yellow, but his skin is clear and mats are gone. Then, he got adopted by an amazing family who loved him very much. Unfortunately, the man of the house got very sick and Mr. Darcy (Bear) didn't react well. We think he could sense the decline in health. They had to return him due to his reaction. This big boy needs a home of his own. Are you that home? 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: 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: Pearl Adeline
Brand New! Hi, my name is Pearl. TGPR thinks I was born in 02/2016. I am being fostered in Kaufman, TX. I am not as big as some female pyrs, I only weigh about 70 lbs! I am a sweet playful girl but I am happy to say I have matured out of that puppy "energy" stage! I am patient with puppies, get along with cats, and love love male dog companions to hang out with! I would really like to have a tall, fenced yard to hang out in because sometimes I will dig or jump out of the yard pin. But truthfully, I would enjoy hanging out with all the humans in my furever family all day, every day. :) read more

 
 

Name: Rocky
Rocky is an 9 month old Pyr mix with a gorgeous black and white coat... almost like a Newfoundland Landseer! He and his brother, Oso, who is all white, got lost while their family was on Xmas vacation. Luckily for them, a Good Samaritan took them in and called TGPR. Eventually, the owners decided to surrender the boys to TGPR because they were moving. But it's obvious that these pups have been raised around children and with lots of love.

Catch me if you can! Tank read more

 

Name: Tighe
He's healthy, active & friendly. He appears to be an Akbash mix,who we thought was going to be on the smallerside, but he keeps growing! This guy is all legs right now! With a shorter coat than a full Pyr, he will be 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: Tinkerbell

Name: Tres
Tres - so named because he has a third dew claw on one back leg, was surrendered in order to find him a good home. He's a little shy at first, as he wasn't handled much in his early life. We will call him a farm fail. He was just having a good time chasing the sheep, but his former owner didn't appreciate that too much. Not sure about his level of house training (likely not much) and he does enjoy spending a lot of time outside. Good with other dogs, kiddos, and unreactive to horses. When he met our evaluator, Tres immediately put his head in her lap. Submissive to other dogs. Will need work getting comfortable on leash. The same rancher who caught him chasing sheep, had already shot his mother. This kiddo deserves a chance at a good life. At this age, he is very trainable and will make for a great companion. 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: Zoey
Zoey is a 2-3 year old spayed female who was rescued by an Air Force couple. She is spayed and up to date on all vetting.She has the double dew claws of Great Pyrenees, but we think there is sheepdog or maybe Wolfhound in her family tree. What an adorable face! Zoey is good with other dogs and she is also ok to be by herself. She has never been crated and doesn’t seem to like the idea of them, but she really doesn’t need it---she is house trained and doggie door trained as well. She walks well on a leash with a harness as her family has been working with her on that. Zoey is curious about cats but doesn’t seem to be bothered by them or want to chase them. She has been around young children...even an infant...and does really well with them. Zoey is a happy dog who enjoys walks and will make a wonderful family companion. read more
