Good with other dogs. He came to us as a seriously injured stray from out west. As usual, TGPR stepped up to help him and our transport team got him safely to Austin. He is now healed. Crate trained. Neutered. Current on vaccinations. Working on house training. This kiddo won't be with us long! read more

 

Name: BRISTOL of Junkyard litter
Born early January 2019, this precious puppy was rescued with her siblings and mom from a junkyard (hence the name!!) She is ready for love and her forever home! Mom is a why pyr, Dad is questionable, though there were was a pit bull male and a Cane corso male living close by. We are accepting applications, and will allow fully approved adopters to meet the whole litter and choose the puppy they feel the most connection with. read more

 

Name: Bullseye
Sunshines litter, born 2/6/19. Deposits are now being accepted from FULLY APPROVED PUPPY ADOPTERS. He will be ready to go to his new home on 04/17/2019 Bullseye is such a sweet baby! He is the baby of the group. He is a bit timid but once he finds his voice he wants to play with everyone! He has been with his mom and two "aunts" a med. dog and a chi-mix dog. He has also been around a cat all this time. He is just a doll baby! read more

 

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

 

Name: 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 will be starting treatment in a few weeks. 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: Chunk Monster
This giant puppy came to us from a shelter, with a mass on the side of his snout and a very large cyst next to his tail. Off to the vet he went! Waiting in results now. He's very calm and easy going. Going to be a wonderful addition to any home! read more

 

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

 

Name: Daisy
Meet Daisy! Estimated to have been born in June 2018, this youngster is just gorgeous! 80+ lbs of sweetness! Good with older kids (age 8+,she may knock down younger ones), and dogs, indifferent to cats when she's been exposed. Found on the side of a highway at 4 weeks old, she missed out on some of the puppy socialization pups get from their mom and siblings, so she took a little extra training and love to get her where she is today. Loves ear rubs, playing fetch and leash walks. She's a little slow to warm up to new people, but that gets better and better as she's getting older. Having someone work with her on building confidence will help a lot. She would do best with a yard and another dog to run around with. This gorgeous girl is ready for her forever home and will not be with us for long! Get your apps in now! read more

Name: Gareth
(MEDICAL HOLD)Gareth, meaning gentle in old English, is a lovely, quiet, gentleman. He is a gentle boy, good with dogs. A little bit nocturnal, but we are working on that. He came to us as a stray out in west Texas. No chip or tags, it appeared he had been dumped. Poor old man is a little sore on his back end, so he is headed for the vet to figure out what's going on. Stay tuned as we get to know him. read more

He is like the energizer bunny and he gained weight quick and became a butterball boy! He loves attention and all of these sweet surprises have been around little kids and have loved them like crazy!! He also has been around other dogs in our home and a cat. He is just perfect to fit into any family! read more

 

Name: Kirby
This poor boy has spent his entire life on a chain in someone's yard. His owner signed him over to a shelter, and TGPR's amazing volunteers stepped in. Full, they donated funds to cover boarding so we could keep him out of a shelter! This boy will need a little time to decompress and adjust to live as a house dog.

He's up to date on vaccinations, and is healthy! House trained and no longer marking inside. Active, playful, and good with most other dogs (he goes to a local dog park without incident). He's still working on his leash manners. He does need a strong leader, and we recommend only children over 10 in his home, as he still doesn't have any idea how big he is. This gorgeous guy is ready for his new beginning! read more

 

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: Majesty
Majesty is back with TGPR after her amazing, devoted mom passed away. She is approaching 8 years old and is the very definition of laid back. She would do well in a quiet home or even a community setting! She loves attention and is good with kids and other dogs. We will be cat testing her in the coming days. She is a "floor floof", if ever there was one. This girl is going to be looking for just the right home to live out the rest of her days. She's been through a great deal and deserves only the best! read more

 

Name: Marley Mae
Found as a stray, no one claimed this gorgeous girl. She came in with Maximus III, who is likely her son. She's dog friendly, and working on house training. Working on leash walking. Would do best in a home with other dogs to help her confidence. She's learning that people are not all bad. She's wonderful! read more

 
 

Name: 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: Mischa
Mischa is a lovely older girl. Healthy, house trained. Good with everyone. She has been surrendered due to no fault of her own. Her family is working long hours and she has been going on walk-about, which is scary with a highway close by. Very sweet and friendly, she is on the more petite side for a Pyr. Looking for a home to live out her golden years. She would do best with someone who works from home or has the ability to check in on her on breaks. read more

 

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

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: Wilder
What can be said about Wilder? This young boy came to TGPR because a very nice Good Samaritan couple saw this skeletal, sad, mostly bald dog, wander into their neighborhood. He was so very sweet, but clearly desperately in need of help. This wonderful young couple did not just call rescue - they put Wilder in their car and took him to the vet, starting his treatment for significant skin infections, fleas, ticks and ear infections. Thus, when TGPR took him in, Wilder was already starting his road to recovery. Wilder is currently in a foster home, and is being fed wholesome food, snacks and receiving baths every other day for his skin. Want to know how Wilder responded to being saved? Within twenty four hours, this poor guy, so thin every rib and spinal vertebrae were visible, stood on his hind legs and gifted his foster family with the brightest smile. It was truly a gift and epitomizes his personality. Wilder is not an LGD. While he loves to go outside, sniff, walk the fence line, like any other member of his breed, he prefers to live inside, with his human present and close. Wilder gives delicate kisses, and pushes his body against you - his favorite spot is standing right behind your knees and leaning. Wilder gets along very well with other dogs, and is very playful - he is a puppy. He has nice dog/dog manners, and appears to have been socialized in his early weeks of life. Wilder has not responded negatively to cats walking through the yard or in the veterinarian's office. He met children in the vet's office and was very excited to see them, did not jump. Basically, everyone is Wilder's friend. Are you looking for a Pyr family member? Well, then look no further than Wilder. However, since he is still just a puppy - albeit a huge puppy - Wilder needs continued socialization and training. His foster family has already started his training, including basic commands and leash work. read more
