Waiting for you, Aslan read more


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: Basil
Basil is an amazing, energetic girl who wants to give and get all the love that she can. Basil is up to date on all of her shots, and has done wonderfully with meeting new dogs, new people, and is a champion grasshopper catcher. At her foster home, Basil has been learning how to walk on a leash, how to wait patiently for her food, how to be sweet with cats (even when she wants to play), how to “sit”, “leave it”, “go to bed”, and “wait”, how to sleep quietly in a kennel (she does great, and has behaved when left out at night during test runs) and how to have all the zoomies in the backyard (and sometimes in the house – the couch does make a good launch pad, after all). She does great in the car once you get her in (she’s still learning that most trips involve treats), and she LOVES to snuggle on the couch with any humans or animals that are willing to share. Basil is amazing with kids, and she is learning that jumping up is bad, but kisses are good (and she’s an excellent alarm clock for small humans). Basil would be great in a home with similarly sized dogs that have similar energy levels, or an active family – she loves to play! She is great with cats, kids, other dogs, and she is very food-motivated, so positive reinforcement training will be perfect for her. 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. 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! read more


Name: Big Bear

Big Bear's temperent is the quintessential "Gentle Giant" This boy is unreactive to other reactive dogs. He just does not get excited. Care must be taken with his enclosure as he will escape but only to find his people!! This boy is not interested in walk abouts. He is interested in LOVE LOVE LOVE!! IF you are looking for a mature loving dog, this is the boy for you. read more


Name: Bill of The Loser's Club

Name: Bruno
Bruno is a male Great Pyr puppy who came to us in rough shape in mid-September. It appeared he had been hit by a car and left. Bruno had many cuts on his little body as well as mange, and worms. But this spunky pup has responded beautifully to life in a safe and happy foster home. He is already running and playing with the big dogs, and we know he will be strong and ready for his forever home very soon. What a little life warrior! read more


Name: Buddy Boy
Buddy is a 1.5 year old Pyrenees border collie cross. He was found by his current foster dodging cars on Highway 290 this past Christmas Eve. He had apparently strayed from his home and had no collar, no chip and after multiple attempts and a post to a lost and found site no one claimed him. It has become apparent that he is very eager and willing to learn and knows commands such as sit and down. He comes to the sound of a whistle as well as his name. He loves to be near people and is an extremely good companion dog. He currently lives on a small farm with other dogs that he gets along well with and he also loves swimming in ponds and being amongst the other livestock such as cows and horses. It is unknown if he is good with cats but his current foster feels that if things don't run from him or act scared then he would be far less likely to go after them. He is a very sweet and loving dog and eager to please. He is good on a leash and he eats in his kennel if he is around other dogs. It's just a safety measure since when he first came to his foster he was very protective of his food. He is very loyal and energetic. He loves to chase the frisbee and will play tug of war with ropes as well. He loves kids and has not shown any aggression towards people. He has been inside the house and has not been destructive nor has he had an accident. His foster feels that he is extremely adaptable and as long as he can get outside and play in the yard and have companionship with people and even other animals, if there are others in the home, he would be happy regardless of whether he was on a large property or not. Being young he does like to get the bulk of the attention if there is another dog around, but in a very short time he settles down and realizes that he doesn't have to be the center of attention. He would do best with an active family, and would not be a good fit for an apartment. read more


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
Brand new - more to come! 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: 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: Cotton
Brand new - more to come! read more


Name: Cue Ball
Mama (aka Cue Ball) is a 6 yo lady who loves people, and is great with cats and other calm dogs. Super calm and gentle with kids, doesn’t jump up on people. She takes a little bit to get comfortable with new dogs, but once she gets to know them, she becomes best buddies. A few of Mama’s favorite things: SNUGGLES! (even better if on the couch). NAPS! (especially on the couch or in the flower bed outside). BONES! (but doesn’t care about toys). WALKS! (runs to the door, ready for adventure when she sees the leash – she’s a slow stroll kinda gal) Chicken Nuggets! (and treats of all kinds). Mama is crate trained (sometimes puts herself to bed in the crate when she’s tired), house trained (no accidents!), and rides well in the car (she needs a lift getting in though). She may need slow introductions time to adjust in a new home with new siblings, to know that nobody will take her food away, and that the meals will keep coming, but no doubt she’ll feel secure in a short amount of time. Her foster sis is 1.5 yo and super playful – Mama occasionally joins in, but mostly likes to watch. Mama can be left out while gone for a few hours and will nap until you come home. Mama is one of the calmest, sweetest, softest pups you’ll ever meet – if you’re looking for an 85 lb snugglebug who snores lightly to join your family – look no further! read more


Name: Daisy Rae
Daisy Rae was pulled from an EU shelter but has settled into her foster home quickly! She is as sweet as can be and keeps trying to play with her foster corgi siblings who aren't so sure of her yet! She is a big fluffy love bug and gets along great with her human siblings as well! She is currently on medical hold until she can kick this kennel cough so keep your eyes peeled for her availability! 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: Delilah Winter
Delilah Winter is a very sweet approximately 1 year old Pyr/Lab mix (we think). She is about 100 pounds of love! She is great with dogs of all sizes, cats, kids and even chickens! She is still learning proper house manners (puppy!), but she loves to put her head in her foster's lap and snuggle. She is ready for her forever home. read more


Name: Devin the Fluffy
Devin the Fluffy is a sweet, young girl (DOB: 11/2018) who was dumped with mange and needing groceries. She loves a good game of bitey face or wrestling with her fur siblings. She is crate trained and housetrained. She has been around little humans (ages 1-11) and acted perfect. Although she does okay on a leash we are continuing to practice and learning good manners. Now that she has gotten rid of the mange, current on vaccinations and been spayed she is ready to find her perfect home. She is being fostered in Idalou, TX. 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! Duke has been doing a little chicken chasing at his foster home, but his foster is trying to work with that to help him become the well rounded farm dog we know he can be! 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: 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: Georgia Peach

She still has my boy, Regan who she helped bring into this world. She lost her husband to a memory home, the house is now an RV and well two big dogs in a small space are hard. I am great wth cats and kids too! As we say with the lipstick kiss, she loved me to allow her to come into the rescue program. I am spayed and fully vetted. I am Great Pyrenees through and through. I am even AKC registered! I am wonderful on the lead. I enjoy the dog park, walks and just lounging around like a Great Pyr likes to do. I am fully vetted and ready for my new home.

Name: Giorgio
My name is Giorgio; born 08/2015! I am debonair and unbelievably handsome. Unfortunately, my human dad passed away and my momma isn't able to care for me anymore, so I'm coming back to the rescue. I am great wit dogs, cats and children. I'm super sweet and would love to impress you with my sit and shake skills. I am fully potty trained, walk well on a leash and ride well in the car. Can you help me out with a new home?! I'm currently being fostered in Dennison. 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: 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: Honey Belle
Honey Belle is an approximately 1.5 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 other dogs with proper introductions. 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 almost finished with heartworm treatment and is ready for her forever home! read more


Name: Jace
Hello World, I'm Jace My foster mom says I'm the best little 6 month old boy ever! I am house trained, I do not chew, I love the outdoors and indoors, I play great with all my foster's dogs (4). I love all people--especially kids--I am lucky to have 5 foster grandkids ages 2-10. I'm very gentle and do not knock them over. I have finally learned to play with toys--my foster mom was so very excited for me! I do not like the crate, so I sleep loose in the house and never get into trouble! I do OK on leash--I start leash training on Tues--Yahoo, another group of pups to learn with! I am also working on car riding--I do pretty good but will be much better the more I ride. I am so looking forward to my furever home. So if I fit into your family lifestyle--PLEASE PLEASE put in your application to adopt me. 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: Kirby
TRAINING HOLD 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: Kuma
More info to come! read more


Name: Lacey Hope
Lacey Hope is a lovely mature Pyr female who has only been with us a short time. However, she has made herself right at home at her foster's home, even fitting in right away with her much younger foster Pyr buddy, Titan. We think this beautiful girl had a sad life, but she is so full of hope for a happily-ever-after future. In the short term, she will be treated for heartworms. But we she will be ready to go to her new home this fall. If you are looking for a calm and gentle companion, look no farther! Lacey Hope is ready to share her life with you. 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: Leafling Litter
Our newest babies, born to Momma Olivia on 10/23/2019! Available for adoption at 10 weeks of age. Keep an eye out for updates on Facebook! read more


Name: Levi
Levi is the sweetest puppy ever and desperately wants her forever home. She is house trained and gets along great with other dogs. Spayed 09/19/2019 read more


Name: Liberty Aka Libby
Libby is an 80-lb, 5-year old magical ball of floof. She’s calm 95% of the time and the other 5% has the zoomies, especially right as you get home. She has the sweetest disposition and would love nothing more than to rest her entire body on your lap for pets. She’s house-trained but would probably do best in a home with a yard so she can get her 5% activity out easily. She takes a little bit to adjust to new places, and can be spooked by sudden noises. For example, she was afraid of the fire hydrant for a couple weeks because as she was sniffing it a loud noise sounded behind her. She can run after a squirrel with the best of them and would do best being walked by someone who can handle quick changes of direction when necessary. She needs to be in a home where she can be the only dog, as she prefers her own space. Experienced Pyrenees owners could do slow intros and separate spaces when not home, but she’s had disagreements with other animals in the home indicating a solitary lifestyle with her as the center of attention would be ideal. Libby will be finishing her heartworm treatment and rest period approx. 10/15 and will be ready for her furever home! read more


Name: Loki Dokey
Loki is a fun-loving 6-month-old male Pyrenees. He is also known as "Puppy Stuff," "Little Brother," "Loki-Dokey," and "Party In A Puppy." We took Loki in after a former co-worker contacted me saying they knew of Loki and that his situation at that time was uncertain and they were not sure what would become of him. Although we have a full pack of dogs and cats, we couldn't let Loki just go by the wayside. Loki is a happy goofy pup who has never met a stranger. He is vivacious and social, and wants to meet everyone he sets his eyes on. He loves kids and adults alike. He is very affectionate, loves to give kisses, loves to receive all over body rubs. Everyone is a potential new friend. He is friendly with dogs and cats alike. Loki's interests and hobbies are expansive and include long walks, short walks, tug-of-war, squeaky toys, rope toys, balls, fetch, chew bones, tattling on the cats, cheese, and zoomies. Loki will be a dynamic addition to any household, particularly to a home that understands and appreciates this wonderful breed. He is a big boy and is guessed to top out at around 120 pounds. read more


Name: Lucy - fka Nori
Lucy (nori) big playful goofball with fabulous eyeliner to accent her big brown eyes. She is great with kids and other dogs. She is crate trained but prefers to lounge on the living room couch or a bed on top of all the pillows or the cool tile floor.  She loves to play and sunbath outside with her foster sister Ella. Chewing on bones and toys are her favorite indoor activities as well as plenty of beauty rest.  She will be as active or as lazy as you want her to be. She walks nicely on a leash and also on the tandem on with her foster sister Ella. She is a snuggle bug and is by your side ready to hangout or have a bite of whatever you are eating or ready for a good ole head scratch or tummy rub.  She knows “sit”, “shake” “crate” and the sound of the refrigerator opening. She will bark when someone is at the door or coming in. She is housebroken.  She does need supervision because she is young and will chew things other than her toys. She rides well in the car but can be a little dare devil and stick more than just her head 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
Meet Luna! She is a Great Pyrenees Mix around 1 year 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: 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: Macey
Macey is a very friendly 1 year old girl weighing in at only 62 pounds. She is heartworm positive but don’t let that deter you from scooping up this steal. She is not a fan of her kennel and will try to bust out of it if left alone. Macey has gotten along great with all of the dogs she has met so far, even the small ones that growl at her. Macey gets along well with little kids and adults alike. She can get a little excited when she is first leashed up but walks very well after she is settled. Macey prefers not to use the restroom while on a leash, so having a backyard or a dog park close by for her to do her business in is important. Overall, Macey is a pretty chill girl who just likes to lay around a get belly rubs. read more


Name: Maggie fka Ivy
This sweet girl is definitely a love sponge but has a ton of energy for long walks too. Although very mellow and calm, even with babies and children, Maggie likes nothing more than meeting people and playing with others. In peak condition, she has had some training and walks well on a leash as long as she is given time to investigate all the smells along the way. Thunder does bother her but she’s happy to take medicine to calm her during the storms. Like most of us, Maggie likes the air-conditioning in the summer but also enjoys being outdoors when it’s cold; she uses a dog door to go in and out. She would fit in well with a family who would give her attention and belly rubs and take her on long walks. Maggie lives with cats but generally pays them no attention. 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: Marley Mae
Found as a stray, no one claimed this gorgeous girl. She is such a sweetheart and her foster family has dogs of all sizes and ages around as well as 6 cats! She is learning how to walk on a leash and seems to be catching on and knows to stay away from rattlesnakes living out in the country! She also likes to bark at all of the new things she sees in the area, including deer! She hasn't been crate trained and would probably do best having a furry friend to keep her company! 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 he will be moved to Kathliene Anderson for private training in the home read more


Name: Mercy
Mercy is a sweet older lady, born in 6/2010. She is being fostered in Sanger, 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: Mystique
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 didnt make it, but the other 10 are doing really well! Mystique was labeled at the shelter as being unfriendly, but we took a chance, and discovered that, really, she was an extremely stressed out new momma in a terrible environment. This sweet girl will be available for adoption after she weans the puppies and has been spayed. We couldn't be more excited for her new future! 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 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: Olaf (FKA: Nanuck)
My name is Olaf (aka Nanuck) and I was born 11/2018. I was adopted out as a puppy, but unfortunately my family wasn't able to train me and I was returned for a lack of manners. I've spent 5 weeks in obedience training and am doing great in my new foster home. I love to snuggle and play. My foster mom is going to continue to work on my manners like the trainer taught me. I make a great running partner because I have learned how to heel. I'm being fostered in Dallas - please come meet me! read more


Name: Olaf T
This gorgeous boy is 10 months old and already over 100 pounds! He's good with other dogs, hasn't been tested with cats, is house trained and loves people. He needs some work on a leash. If you're looking for a big, handsome boy, Olaf T is for you! read more


Name: Oso Sweet
Oso is a sweet 7 year old boy looking for love. He was picked up by a good samaritan who found him in a local dumping ground for unwanted animals. Oso had been walking around with a broken hip that had already started healing, but lucky for him, TGPR stepped in and got this sweet soul the surgery he needed. We don't know much about his personality at this time, as he is still recovering and has very limited time outside of his crate; however, when you look into his eyes you can feel the gratitude and love he has for you. read more


Name: Patch
Patch, AKA Nana is 85 lbs of fluff and sweetness; born 06/2018. She looks to be a Pyr mix with beautiful coloring and soulful eyes. She lives in Plano with her “empty nest” foster family. She enjoys visits, walks and attention from their adult daughter. She is their only pet besides the beta fish. She is very shy and gentle. She enjoys flavor-filled bones, hotdogs and shredded chicken….and maybe the occasional shoe… but, when given a toy to chew instead, she gladly accepts! She enjoys the good life of plush toys, treats, and a soft bed. She adores being brushed and petted, especially her belly! She responds very well to positive reinforcement and redirection. She is very aware and somewhat fearful of loud noises and voices. She is trying to learn to sit on “her furniture” not her foster family’s, thus she loves her fluffy bed and the treats she gets for sitting on it (Most likely, she would adore her own sofa and tiara!). While she does have some anxiety issues with strangers, loud noises and leashes, she does seem to find a way to overcome and trust. She will benefit greatly from obedience and socialization classes. She tends to take herself away from the situation and go to her safe and quiet place if she needs space. She seems to be thriving with consistency and attention. She is not at all aggressive or destructive. She is crated when no one is home, but free to roam around when the family is home. She seems to get along well with other dogs. She is not yet kid-tested or kitty approved. 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, butmy owner and I have gotten a bit older and we have now both retired from farming. I am now a house pet girl! It has taken me several months to learn the art of 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 shook 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.

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 Rose was taken into the shelter with her 2 siblings. All of them had Demodex and were very afraid of people. She is completely healed and loves attention. She has the typical Pyr double dew claws, but we think she may be a Pyr/Lab mix as her coat is shorter. 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, house and kennel trained. Sage Rose would make a wonderful addition to any family. read more

He is up to date on his vetting and fostered in the San Antonio area. Shiloh loves to play with the big male Pyr/Akbash at his foster home. 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: Snow Princess
Hello My name is Snow Princess! I was born on 3/23/2019. I am brand new to TGPR so while I am an adorable and beautiful princess, I do come with barking, shedding and was rehomed due to jumping the fence. I love other dogs, playing with stuffed toys and the water. This group took me in because they know that all I need is a little bit of one on one attention and training which can be continued when adopted! I am waiting for my "fairy tale" ending! If you are interested in finishing my story please fill out an application at TXPYRS.ORG. Looking forward to meeting you soon! Snow Princess read more

Name: Squirt
Squirt looks like he fits his name, but, though he is small, he is mighty! Born in September 2017, this Great Pyrenees x Anatolian Shepherd has resigned the working life to become a pet. He is a very well balanced dog. He was surrendered only because the farm where he was born had a dog population problem. Squirt is playful and puppy-like with other dogs. He has been in multiple large packs of dogs and has not started any trouble. He is very loving and happy to be around his people. He would be a fantastic hobby farm pet dog, because he is sweet and social with everyone he meets, including children. He is currently fostered with multiple cats, and just ignores them (or turns the other cheek if they swat at him!). Squirt rides in a vehicle well and walks very calmly on a leash. He is very versatile and adaptable. He would even do very well as an apartment dog due to his smaller size. Squirt is located in the Denton, TX area. Come and meet him! read more

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

Name: Treigean
Treigean is a very calm senior girl. She had way too many litters of puppies in her lifetime, but those days are behind her. She is very smart and figured out the dog door quickly. She will do just about anything for a meaty treat (no veggies or french fries for her!). She knows "sit" and is working on other basic commands. She's great with kids, other dogs and cats. She likes ear rubs and loving, but is not demanding. If you're looking for a calm, quiet senior that's ready to be pampered in her golden years, Treigean is the one for you. 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: Vera Jayne
Vera Jayne was named after the blonde movie temptress, Jayne Mansfield, who also had very pale hair. But the comparison stops there because little Vera Jayne is so sweet and even a little shy. We think she is about 4 months old, and in early December, she weighed 37 pounds. Vera Jayne was found abandoned in the woods near a truck stop by a Good Samaritan rescuer who contacted TGPR for help with this special girl. She has now been to the vet and has gotten medication to rid her of various parasites. She is beginning to play with the fun Golden Retriever boy at her foster home, and we know it won't be long before she has a wonderful home of her own! read more


Name: VIPER of Junkyard litter

She has gone through some extensive training once coming back to us and is ready for her fur-ever 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


Name: Watson
Watson is a hansome three year old neutered male Pyr. His coat has some golden flecks which make us think that there may be Golden Retriever in his background as well as Pyr. He was adopted a few months ago by a family friend when his original owner moved overseas. He is doing really well at his new home, which he shares with a high energy little dog (who Watson loves to play with) and a super chill cat who is totally at ease in his company. However, the kind couple who adopted Watson knew that they were just a "way station" for him because of their own busy work schedules. They are now official TGPR fosters who love Watson and will keep him while we look for a family with playmates and more time to spend with this lovable boy. read more


Name: Wiggles
New to TGPR 10/30/2019, Glacier came to us after having been found, hit by a car. The animal shelter did not have the means to get him treated, so they asked for our help. He's seen two vets and has been vaccinated and neutered. He has a fractured rib and shoulder blade, which will need time to heal. He'll spend the next month resting, taking potty breaks on leash, and learning how to be a good boy! This handsome hunk will be available for adoption soon! read more


Name: Wilbur
On Medical Hold while we sort through his various medical issues. Significant arthritis in his back end and his teeth are in desperate need of cleaning. Stay tuned! UPDATE: 10/30/19 Wilbur is the sweetest gentle giant! He is as low key as they come. Wilbur enjoys sleeping on any soft surface, traipsing around the yard smelling the air and the grass, and loves a good chicken flavored treat. He gets along great with dogs and cats. He is very affectionate and will nudge you for extra pets. Wilbur’s arthritis is getting better every day and he’s ripe for a major transformation. Wilbur will being a calm, sweet energy to his forever home. 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 can be dog selective. 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 not a fan of small or dark colored dogs. He is a big, handsome boy and really wants to be with his forever (for real) family. read more
