Name: Alice
Hi, I'm Alice. I was brought into a shelter with my brothers and sisters. Im pretty healthy but the shelter did find that I have an inguinal hernia - so the rescue is monitor it further and see if any procedures are needed. I am a bad girl... I look for for mud every chance I can to play in it( I sneak into it while we are all going out to our outside crate our foster daddy built for us. Its got a ceiling fan over head for a cool breeze. Also has chicken wire sides so we can get what the big dogs are doing in the yard. Boy I cant wait to play out in grass. I love toys of all kinds plus snacks and chewies. Our foster Mommy always makes sure we have a snack and chewies at bedtime. I love attention as much as food lol! I know you will fall in love with my brothers and sisters and want to take us home... Pick Me! Pick me! lol. We live in Royse City right now. We will be at the Rockwall Petsmart the second Sunday in May. So get your application in and come take one of us home !! By the way Mommy isnt too computer savvy so go to chloes daily diary on FB and ask to join you will see pictures and videos of us... Mommy is getting newer pictures of us.. were bigger and prettier now!! read more


Name: Basil
Baby Basil and two siblings were dropped at a shelter, stray. They all have demodex mange, intestinal parasites and a skin infection. All three of the pups were very scared around people. Basil is the most fearful of the bunch, and in just a few days is already doing much better. She's feeling better, smells better, and is adjusting to live as a companion. She LOVES snuggles will quickly fall asleep in your arms. This adorable little girl will be available for adoption 08/01/2019. read more


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


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


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


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


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


Name: Ghandi of the Rogue Litter
Ghandi is one of the smaller of the litter. An adorable coffee brown, with lighter brown and white markings. He has BIG personality and loves to play hard. He's a wrestler and a talker. Such an adorable boy! Rogue Litter details: Born 4/26/2019 Deposits accepted now being accepted for the litter, not for specific puppies. We will work to match you with the right puppy personality. Pickup 07/05/2019 read more


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Name: 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. 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: Sammie Jo
Hi, I'm Sammie Jo! My brothers and sisters(9) were taken to an animal Shelter. TGPR came and saved us. I am a sweet girl that loves to play and give kisses! Do you have a place for me? read more


Name: Sebastian
Due to unfortunate life circumstances, Sebastian is finding himself looking for a new home to rest his big sweet head through his golden years. Sebastian is a lovely senior boy who does still have energy to romp and play. Didnt take long for him to discover the joys of couch snuggling. Want a best friend? RUB HIS EARS. Hes such a wonderful guy looking for a cat free home to live out his golden years. He will need a home where his weight issues can be managed. Lots of testing resulting in inconclusive results, he needs a specific diet in order to maintain healthy body condition. read more


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


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


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


Name: Thompson
After a death in the family, his people requested assistance finding a forever family for Thompson. We brought him into our program and straight to the vet for exam and initial vaccinations. Unfortunately, during that exam it was discovered that he has a grade 6 heart murmur. Thompson will be having heart surgery in the coming weeks. He won't be available for adoption until early October. read more
