She is just a young girl herself... probably only 18 months old. read more

 
 

Name: Arnold Pawmer
This sweet boy was rescued from the shelter just hours before he was scheduled to be euthanized. He gets along well with other dogs of all sizes and would enjoy a playmate. Once he realized he was allowed inside, he loves hanging out in the house. He is not destructive. He is a bit anxious when riding in a vehicle, but that is improving as he realizes he isn't going to be dumped and left to fend for himself. He has a big, blocky Pyr head. He loves attention and can't wait to be in his forever home! read more

Name: Big Momma -Whiskey Tango Foxtrot
Big Momma came to us from a shelter where she was surrendered with 8 adorable floofy, mixed breed puppies who had terrible injuries. We weren't sure if the puppies would make it, and didn't have any info about mom at the time. Turns out Big Momma is AH-MAZING. She did her very best to keep those babies alive until help could be found, and they are doing well! This girl is FRIENDLY. She's so sweet. Loves a good, soft bed. Walks nicely on leash, house trained. She's calm and trusting. We are SO GLAD to have been able to help her and her little family.

Name: Charleston Stone
Charleston is such a cuddler and likes to follow his humans around! He has a playful side and likes to run around with the big dogs, but can relax on the bed too. He is good with cats and loves tearing up his rope. He is good on a leash and doesn't pull. He loves meal time and will go around to every dog bowl in the house in between meals looking for a hidden kibble to snack on! He is a little weary if you come at him too quickly still or go to reach for his collar, but he is learning to trust people and has nothing but love for them! He listens to "come" and "sit" and is very treat motivated. He is house trained and crate trained with only a couple of accidents in the beginning that he has seemed to grow out of! He would love to have to have a fur sibling to play with, but either way he will be a fabulous family dog! 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. read more

 

Name: Chase Pommard
Chase Pommard 1.5 yo neutered male. Approximately 50# so will be more of a pocket pyr. All the best parts of a pyr just in a smaller size. While Chase is up to date on his shots he is starting Heartwork treatment this week. CHase Pommard was found as a stray so his history is unknown. Because of some of his insecurities he prefers to eat alone and can be protective of bones. He will need to be have training to work through his resource guarding. He should be fed alone and bones given while he is in his crate until he feels comfortable and learns that he will always be fed and have a safe home. He quickly kennel trained, and is house broken He is very active, he runs and plays with the fosters dog inside He will need a good fenced yard or a place that is secure for him to play in. He is not a barker. He tends to want to jump up and great people and counter surfs. His foster states that with consistency and understanding that he will be fed some of these habits will be broken. Cats are not an issue. He is interested, but not in a bad way. I have 6 cats of various personalities. There were no issues. Because of his jumping he would do best in a home with older children. He is very smart and sensitive. Once he has completed his Heartworm treatment he will be ready for his forever home. Could that be you? 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 years ago, our mom got sick and passed away. We were 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 $100! read more

Name: Dakota
Hello everyone, my name is Dakota, Dak for short, although I am still learning to respond to that name. I was picked up off the streets by a kind lady before coming to my foster mom from the rescue. Just in case you were wondering, I am super adorable. I really love playing with my doggy friends and am learning that cats are friends too. Sometimes I still chase and bark at them and my mom tells me that is naughty. Guess I have to learn. I am also learning the idea of doing my business outside, although I have impressed my mom so far. I really want to learn and do the right thing. I am a little scared of strangers and men, but I’m sure I will learn to like them. I like being outside, but do not prefer to guard livestock. My absolute favorite thing is water, so be ready for a messy dog. Boy would I enjoy a pool or pond to play in. If you are interested in making me apart of your family, please ask about me. read more

 

Name: Darlin
Training Hold: Darlin is about 1 year and 6 months old and such a beautiful girl. She is house and crate trained, but does not like to go into her crate at night. She is working on basic commands and leash manners. She has had several bad experiences with other dogs, so would likely do best as an only dog. Would you give her the time, patience and training she needs to be the best girl? read more

 

Name: Duke HFD
Duke is a big, handsome boy who has lived with goats, horses, chickens, and dogs. He is friendly and sweet. Although he is used to living outdoors, he would not mind coming in for a visit!

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: Foxie LGD aka Jill
Foxie (her call name is Jill) is ready to go! She is a gorgeous guardian that has been part of a pack of females that patrol a working goat ranch in the San Marcos area. "Jill" came in with her sibling, but he decided the indoor home life is for him. Not this girl! She has embraced her working lines and is ready to find her forever home and herd. Jill will need a partner LGD in her adoptive home. If you guardians already, she would be a nice addition. Pictures soon! read more

 
 

Name: Freedom
Meet Freedom. She was born 5/2/2019, She acclimated very well to her new foster home! She is a little spitfire! She played and ran and ran and played the whole time. Her background is that she is an owner surrendered 8 month girl due to the neighbors were not happy about the barking in the wee hours of the morning. The owners were told by the breeder she was a Great Pyrenees. I believe she is Kuvasz due to the small paws, curly hair, slender build and no double dews. This breed is also a livestock guard breed. She is smart as a whip because all she had to do was watch one of our dogs go through the dog and door and a couple of minutes later she went right through and back out a few minutes later. She got along great with all the dogs and loved riding in the car. She will be available for adoption around 1/29/20 at which time her evaluation time will be over. She is a cutie for sure! read more

She will go in a kennel, but is not a fan. She walks great on leash and has the cutest little bouncy gate when she trots. She would be great in an apartment or home and would be happy as an only dog, or with others in the house to play with. This cute little girl won't last long! read more

 

Name: Griffin FKA: Victor
Hi! My name is Victor and I was born 2/26/2018. I'm a big boy (93 pounds) who loves to be pet! I have soulful eyes and a shorter coat. More to come as my foster gets to know me! I came into TGPR when they rescued my litter, along with my dad in 2018. Unfortunately, my mom passed away from seizures at the vet's office after we were dropped off at the shelter. I was adopted, but unfortunately I had to come back to TGPR because my adopted brother started attacking me when we played. It was pretty traumatic, but I'm starting to feel safe again with the rescue. I'm being fostered in Sanger, TX - I'd love to meet you! read more

 
 

Name: Heidi
Her original owner found her as a 6 week old puppy wandering the streets of Gainesville and has had her for the past two years. She is great with kids, house trained and is a "pocket sized" Great Pyrenees (mixed with another breed that makes her on the smaller side). She is good with small dogs, but slow introductions are needed for big dogs. She is a complete lover and just wants to please you. She is HW positive so she will need to undergo heartworm treatment. read more

 

Name: Honey Belle
Honey Belle is an almost 2 year old sweetie. She gets along with other dogs, but is still learning how to play and understand body language. She would probably do well as an only dog, or with smaller dogs. She loves people of all ages. She asks for pets, but is not demanding. We believe her skin condition was hormonal and having her spayed seems to have fixed the issue as she is getting fuzzy now! She is finished with heartworm treatment and is ready for her forever home! read more

 

Name: India of Whiskey Tango Foxtrot
India, her mom (Big Momma) and siblings came to us with extremely significant medical issues/injuries. The cause is unknown, but they are in good hands now!

Name: Jameson
Jameson is a handsome male Pyr about 2 years old who was found by a Good Samaritan who fed him and took him to a vet after attempts to find his owner failed. At the vet's boarding facility, he was non-reactive to other dogs, and we are placing him in a terrific TGPR foster home on the Jan. 14, 2020. We expect that he will soon be ready to join a lucky family! read more

 

Name: Kasey
This handsome boy is so calm and sweet! He gets along with most other dogs and loves people. He was very thin, but has gained weight and looks and feels much better! He would likely do best in a small pack or as an only dog. He is heartworm positive, but otherwise healthy. He is able to go to his forever home as long as the adopter is willing to care for him during his heartworm treatment. He walks great on a leash and LOVES attention from his people. This big, gorgeous boy is looking forward to his forever family. read more

 

Name: Kilo of Whiskey Tango Foxtrot
Kilo and his siblings came to us from a shelter where he was dropped off with serious wounds and infection. No one was sure he was going to make it. Thankfully, with amazing care from our partner vets, he's doing well! He will need some reconstructive surgery, scheduled 1/23, and will be available for adoption once cleared medically. read more

 

Name: Kuma
Kuma came from a backyard breeder situation. She is ~10 months old. She didn’t have the very best start in life yet somehow she is just the sweetest girl. I'm serious. She's a doll baby. She is so kind and gentle and doesn't seem to want any part of being alpha. She lets those punk puppy siblings boss her around. However, she is all about the weird naked children hugging her neck and giving kisses. She's HW negative, but is being treated for hookworms. Only one more round to go. She has no idea what a leash is and to say she has bad table manners is ludicrous. Puh-leeeeze. She has NO manners. We're working on that and she’s catching on quickly. Oh, one big step for her, she has finally started to play with our resident dog. It took a couple weeks to feel safe in this very loud home. Here she is in all her gentle glory. Oh, the most awesome thing about her is this barely audible squeak that comes out of her. It is the tiniest whimper. She sounds like Wheezy from Toy Story. It is so charming. read more

 

Name: Lacey Hope
Lacey Hope is a lovely mature Pyr female who is doing beautifully at her foster home. She has become good friends with Mishka, who is a young Pyr male. She has even had a little interest in playing with him! Her foster loves to take her to visit friends and family, and Lacey Hope is a hit wherever she goes. We think this beautiful girl had a hard early life, but she is so full of hope for a happily-ever-after future. In the short term, she is being treated for heartworms. The vet has approved the "slow kill" method for her which means she will not have any restrictions on her activity and can be adopted now. This gracious girl would make a wonderful companion for a family that loves the more relaxed pace that Lacey thinks is just perfect! read more

 

Name: Lance McCullers of Astros Family
Lance McCullers of the Astros Family was surrendered to the shelter with his female mate and 4 puppies. He is a very sweet and laid back boy. He gets along with dogs of all sizes, is a bit cat curious, but is redirected easily and is not aggressive in any way. He is about 18 months old, weighs about 85 pounds, but is very thin. He should be 110 pounds or larger once he gets to his ideal weight. He is on "injured reserve" until we have xrays done to see what is causing him to walk oddly. read more

 

Name: Luke
Luke and his brother Walker were brought in from a backyard breeding situation in West Texas. It is believed that they didn't have much human socialization. Upon arriving at his new foster home he has shown his true colors and gets along with the resident dogs great and within a couple of days had learned to use the doggy door without training. If he could have it his way he would love a home where he has room to play and someone to give him all kinds of attention. He is the cuddler of the two! read more

 

Name: Luna Marie
Training hold. Luna Marie is a timid girl and needs some time to warm up to new people. She is not aggressive, just nervous. She is learning to walk on a leash and is house trained. She had some bad experiences with little dogs, so would likely do better as an only dog or possibly with another large dog with proper introductions. More to come as she settles into her new foster home. read more

 

Name: Luna Rae
Meet Luna! She is a Great Pyrenees Mix around 4 years old. She is a “Pocket Pyr” as she is just under 50 pounds and will most likely not be as big as a traditional Great Pyrenees. I found her wandering around our neighborhood and after 2 weeks, finally found the owners. Unfortunately, she decided to take herself on another walk about less than 24 hours after being returned and the owners asked me to foster her if I found her again Of course I said yes! She is a beautiful soul. She loves playing around outside with my resident dog, sleeping at our feet while we watch TV, chewing on tennis balls and antler chew toys, and going on walks. She loves to be outside and has access to the outdoors most of the day through the doggy door. I often find her napping in the grass in the yard after a full day of playing. She is great with other dogs, kids, and cats! She is very loving and snuggly. She loves to rest her head on my legs while I sit on the couch or lay her head on my feet while I watch TV. She is looking for her forever home full of loving owners who love to snuggle and plenty of outdoor access. 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: Maurice
My name is Maurice and I was born in 2017. I am a super sweet boy, that does not bark, and am good with dogs. I love to roll blankets up in my doggie bed... mostly cuz I never had any!! My foster says I need to gain some weight and she is doing her best to help me!! Do you have a place I can call home? 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 2019 he will be moved to Kathliene Anderson for private training in the home read more

 

Name: Miles Davis
TRAINING HOLD Miles came from a shelter where he had been adopted and returned twice, for classic Pyr behaviors. During his vetting, he was checked for UTI due to straining. Xrays were done and it turns out our new boy has bullet fragments in his thigh!! While we work out his medical issues, he will remain on hold. Updates to come! read more

 

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

 

Name: Mimi
Mimi is the sweetest 2 year old girl! She’s deaf and quite shy, but is getting more comfortable with new things every day. Very small for a pyr at only 56 lbs, she’s got beautiful markings and loves long walks. She’s very cuddly once she’s comfortable with you, and will happily snuggle up next to you on the sofa. She does well with other dogs and will run and play for a bit and then is happy to curl up on her dog bed/relax for a while. She needs a little time but adjusts to new environments fairly well and is starting to come out of her shell! read more

 
 

Name: Minnie
Minnie is a gentle 3 year old Pyrenees female who was rescued by a TGPR family in December in the hope that she would be a friend for their cat. Minnie is the sweetest girl and cat-tolerant. But she does eat the cat's food, given a chance. The cat is not happy at all about this new addition to the home, and "she was there first". Minnie has a happy and relaxed disposition. She loves to go for walks and is good on the leash. The family is fostering her until we can find a wonderful home for her, probably without cats. :-) read more

 

Name: Mishka
Mishka is a handsome 3 year old male Pyr with a long white coat with caramel patches. His owner passed away, leaving him homeless and sad in a South Texas shelter. But what a happy and resilient boy he is! Mishka is now with a caring TGPR foster in San Antonio. He fit in right away with the senior female Pyr at the house, even though he would love to have a buddy closer to his age to play with. MIshka enjoys visiting friends and family and loves it when he is the center of attention. He needs a little work on his leash manners, but he is smart and is making good progress! He will be aa great family dog! read more

 

Name: Momma June
Momma June is a sweet, 8 year old girl that would love to have another large dog to play with. Don't let her age fool you, she loves to run and romp with other big dogs. She gets along with dogs of all sizes. She is cat friendly and loves people, although a little shy at first. She has seasonal allergies that caused some hair loss, but her coat is growing back and she is doing great. She is great on leash, completely house trained and not destructive at all. This girl still has a lot of love to give. Could you be her forever family? read more

 

Name: Monkey Boy
This little guy, born in September 2019 came to us after suffering an unkown injury to his leg. He has a radial fracture and will be casted for until March. He is very sweet and friendly.

Name: Mystique
ON HOLD Mystique came to us from an overflowing shelter. She had the puppies out in the country, and the landowner dropped her and the babies at the shelter because he didnt want anything bad to happen to them. This litter was originally ELEVEN puppies!! One didn't make it, and the other 10 are happy and healthy, and now off doing their own thing. Mystique is a shy girl, who was terrified of the whole world when she came to us. She's come a long way! Her foster is currently working with her on getting comfortable being inside, developing confidence and working on getting her to walk on leash. She's also crate training, and working on understanding how much fun a car ride can be. She's a work in progress, who will be available once she's more comfortable in the world, and after she recovers from spay surgery. Stay tuned in our FB group for ongoing updates and progress! read more

 

Name: Naomi
Naomi and her four puppies came to TGPR in need of a lot of TLC. She currently lives with two other dogs and loves running, wrestling, and laying with them. She should go to a home where she has a fur-sibling to play with and teach her confidence. Naomi is good with cats too. She has been around children and with instruction to approach slowly and calmly, she has done very well with them. Her safe space is in her crate if she gets overwhelmed. Noami is 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! Naomi was born in February of 2015 and is being fostered in Midland, TX. read more

 

Name: Nicholas
Come one, come all - fall in love with my ice blue eyes! Hi my name is Nicholas! I was born in approximately December of 2016. I am being fostered in The Colony, TX. I am a very kind, loving boy! I love to give hugs and tell you I love you! 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. I would be best suited in a home without young children. I don’t mind little children but I’m not sure what to do with them so I just go off by myself when little ones are running around the house. I have some night vision issues, but it does not hold me back! I am still learning about the kindness of people in this world and would do great with a patient owner that gives me time to adjust in new situations. I need to be in a home where someone is home with me the majority of the day or another doggy playmate. I am a ladies man and prefer female companions but a non dominant male is fine also. Once I feel safe with a person or situation I am a very happy camper! read more

 

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

 

Name: Piper
Piper is the momma to Luke and Walker. She was brought in from a backyard breeding situation from West Texas. She doesn't seem to have been socialized with humans very much and is still pretty shy. She is slowly warming up to her foster mom and her dogs but still has some confidence building to do. Unless an experienced adopter comes along, this girl will be with us while she builds some confidence and adjusts to being a companion dog after a life without much affection. read more

 

Name: Richie of The Loser's Club
Richie is part of "The Loser's Club" as her foster has named them. They were brought in from a backyard breeder situation in Fort Stockton at around 8 weeks old.

He is sweet and cuddly and will adjust well into his new family's home. read more

 

Name: Sadie
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.

Name: Sansa
Sansa is a year old spayed female who has multiple fur-siblings in her foster home of all sizes. She ABSOLUTELY adored the children that came to visit! She had never been an indoor dog or experienced the life of a loving home until she came to TGPR from a backyard breeder. She has since learned to become crate trained, walk on a leash and learned to be a dog. She is the sweetest pup and has picked up on all of these things quickly with her foster and is eager to please. Her foster reports that she is still very much a puppy, although a big girl. She regularly "rolls" her Huskies when they are playing in the yard. She would never hurt a creature on purpose, but like young Pyrs, doesn't know her own strength. This lovely gir is ready for her forever home! read more

 

Name: Shiloh Smiley
Shiloh is smaller male Pyr between 12 and 18 months old, who was found so weak from starvation in mid-July 2019 that he could hardly walk.

He is up to date on his vetting and fostered in the San Antonio area. Shiloh loves to play with the big dogs at his foster home, but he is also gentle enough for smaller children. In fact, he wants to be friends with everyone! We know he will be an outgoing and very social companion for a lucky owner! read more

Name: Stella
Stella is a very well behaved girl! She is 2.5 year old. She knows several command. Sit, down, shake and roll over! She has a little bit of storm and fireworks anxiety. When this happens, she just wants to be close to you and petted. Stella is great with male and female dogs of all sizes. She is good with cats! Loves to play tug-a-war and fetch! She loves kids, too! Stella would do best in a laid back home with children and a doggy friend to play with. She is a bit timid if you raise your voice according to previous owners. This girl is awesome and would need a family to continue her training. I think she would thrive best with an active, out doors-y type family. She was really abused before her last family rescued her from the shelter. Stella has come such a long ways. 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: VIPER of Junkyard litter
This ADORABLE fluffy girl is called "Viper", although her personality is just the opposite. What a sweetheart! Born in a junkyard in January 2019 to Mom (Chevelle) is a Great Pyrenees. A DNA test on one of her siblings indicates dad was Am Staff or some other bully breed. Regardless of her parentage, this sweet, fluffy girl is just a doll! She was adopted when she was younger, but to due circumstances beyond her control, she was returned to us. She's since been in foster with a trainer/volunteer and has proven to be just amazing! The first thing people notice about her, after her shiny, shiny coat, is her adorable underbite! It is pretty extreme, but does not interfere with her ability to eat or play. It just gives her more character! And when she's happy to see you? Her top lip curls a little and she SMILES!! We don't see that ability often, but hers is legit! Friendly, smart, trainable, social, playful. All words that describe her. She has the SOFTEST fur, to which almost NOTHING sticks. Even after a romp through brush recently, she only came out with 4 burs! This goofball loves to wrestle with other dogs, so a home with a doggy friend would be best. She's one year old, so still has some of that puppy energy and is still learning about life, so any interactions with small kids should be supervised - not because she's mean AT ALL - but because she has no idea how big she is! Good on leash, house trained, crate trained. Spayed, microchipped and current on vaccinations. She's the full package and she's ready for her forever home! read more

 

Name: Walker
Walker was brought in with his brother Luke from a backyard breeder in West Texas. It is believed that they didn't have much human interaction before arriving in Austin with TGPR. Upon arriving at his foster home though he has shown that he certainly is a love bug but is the more energetic and playful pup of the two. He has also learned how to use the dog door without training a couple days into living with his foster and has befriended the resident dogs. He also has some extra eyelashes that don't seem to bother him and shouldn't become an issue in the future. read more
