Name: Bree
Bree came to us from a kill shelter, heart worm positive. She has completed her treatment and is ready for her forever home! Loves people, but can be picky about her canine friends. Did well with the cat in her former foster home. She's on the more petite side, with shorter fur, so grooming will be much easier. Everyone who meets her just loves her! Is this the girl for you? read more

 

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

 

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

 

Name: Chevelle
Chevelle was abandoned in a junk yard. After birthing 10 babies (sadly, one didn't make it), she was transferred to TGPR. She has been resting, chowing down (she was awfully thin) and being a fantastic mommy. She's also mom to TGPR Addie, who came to us the week before and gave us two surprise babies as well! Chevelle is SUPER sweet and friendly. House trained. Good with other dogs. This girl is on the road to the good life! 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: Dove
This goofy, gorgeous brindle girl is something special. Her mom is a Pyrenees, not sure where this coloring came from, but she's just gorgeous. Playful, she's good with dogs of all sizes, cats and is in foster with some young children as well. Get your app in now! She won't be with us for long. read more

 

Name: Dumbledore
Dumbledore is a 3-4 month old probable Pyr/Lab cross. He has the double dews of a Pyr and the shorter coat of a Lab. He was dropped at one of our vets by an Good Samaritan who found him alone and frightened. He's in good hands now! More to come soon. 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

 

Name: Georgia
Meet Georgia! A lovely, calm girl. Good with kids, cats and dogs! You won't meet a nicer Pyr. She's a big girl, weighing in at 130lbs. Current on vaccinations, spayed, and hw -. Originally adopted from a shelter, she is now in need of a new home because her lovely owner is having to move to a VERY hot climate, and she was concerned that Georgia would suffer in that environment. Georgia is as wonderful as they come! read more

 

Name: Hershey
New to TGPR, Hershey (we call him Hershel) he just seems to have this old soul look in his eyes. He is puppy pad trained and mostly will go outside. He loves to play with his brother Heath but tries to tell him he is the oldest. He doesn't pull that with our other dogs. He is kid friendly, a love bug, likes to sit on the couch with you and he will find any shoe that you have on the floor. He will not drop them he runs and wants to smell and gnaw on them. I don't blame him he's only 3 months old. He is 30lbs right now and is so ready to find a family he can love and that can love him back. He is great in a crate and is working on coming to his name (not too well) and leash training. He likes to be near people or the water bowl read more

Name: Juno
Doesn't Juno have the best face?? Born 2016, her original owner moved into an apartment and couldn't take her along. She was moved to a friend's home, where she's done well. They want her to have a loving forever home, so reached out to TGPR. She's good with kids, although she loves to jump up for hugs, so bigger kiddos will be better. She loves to play, higher energy for a Pyrenees, so she'd do well as a hiking buddy. She has been working through obedience training, is a big people pleaser, an wants nothing more than to be loved! Good with kids and other dogs, and should be cat friendly as well. This girl is an all around family dog who will make for a wonderful forever friend! read more

 

Name: Leroy
New to TGPR in Dec 2018. This lovely senior has been through a lot. Treated by the shelter for mange and now on medical hold while we figure out what's going on with some tumors. Very friendly and calm older guy looking for somewhere to lay his head during his golden years. read more

 

Name: Loki
Loki comes to us heartworm + and with what appears to be a neglectful background. He's very thin and doesn't have any manners. Unaltered at the moment, we aren't sure about his house training status. He's smart and SUPER friendly, loving to stand up to give big hugs! He's a goofy young guy, at approximately 2 years old. No small kids... He has NO IDEA how big he is. read more

 

Name: Lolie
Sweet and spunky, this girl is going to be a lot of fun! She's good with dogs of all sizes, kids and cats. She's even been exposed to goats and chickens! She is NOT a working dog, however. She's a snuggle bug! Her mom is a Pyr, not too sure about dad. But look at those ears!! Who wouldn't love to have that face around all of the time? Get your app in quick, she won't be here long! 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: 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: Mars
New to TGPR 12/9. Mom was Pyr, dad?? Sassy and fun, this kiddo will make a great active family dog! read more

 

Name: Maximus III
This has to be one of the most handsome dogs we've had come through our program. Gorgeous, friendly, and learning that people are nice. He's working on house training. Neutered, up to date on vaccinations. He came in with Marley Mae, who we believe is his mother. Very sweet, and a very unique boy. 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

 

Name: Olivia
Olivia is approximately 2 years old but loves to run and play with toys like she is a puppy. She is dog and cat friendly. Can be slightly food aggressive but now shares bowl with 3 other dogs. Olivia prefers to spend her time outside but is completely housebroken. She loves to go for a walk on her leash and has great manners. She know how to sit and never begs for human food. Olivia would love a family with children ❤️ 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

MEDICAL HOLD. Due to unfortunate life circumstances, Sebastian is finding himself looking for a new home to rest his big sweet head through his golden years. New to TGPR on 11/27/18.

Name: Shaggy
Hit by a car and left on the side of the road, this kiddo needed surgery to fix his leg. Heading to foster. Will update as we learn more. read more

 

Name: Shovak
Shovak is a happy boy who is ready for his furever home! He is 9 months old, fully vetted and neutered, and heartworm negative.  He's fully housebroken, and will let you know when he is ready to go out. He's extremely smart, only needing to be shown something twice before he learns it, and he has picked up several things from just watching his foster pack. He loves everyone, and would be happiest in a household with other dogs and children to play with, and he is happy to lay next to your chair and be adorable when he is not playing hard.  read more

 

Name: Sophie
Sophie is a chill girl, looking for a loving, calm, special home to call her own. She's spent most of her life in and out of the shelter, due to people who just didn't care to keep her safe. She prefers the company of people but is good with dogs. She came to TGPR with numerous tumors, which have been removed, and has been spayed. It looks like the first part of her life was pretty hard. She's a lovely, quiet girl who deserves a forever family of her very own. Are you looking for a sweet mellow girl to complete your family? read more

 

Name: Sunshine
Medical hold. Surrendered to shelter with a leg injury. She was very thin and filthy. We had ortho check her out and thankfully all she needed was splint and rest for 6 weeks. She has been gaining weight and is just the sweetest, snuggliest, most lovely girl! On week 5 of her recovery, she did surprise us by having 4 adorable babies! So, she will be on medical hold until the babies are weaned and she can be spayed. Sunshine is cat friendly, dog friendly and crate trained. Not a destructive chewer. She might be a wonderful fit for a seniors community. Shes level and calm and just lovely! read more

 

Name: Tighe
He's healthy, active & friendly. He appears to be an Akbash mix,who we thought was going to be on the smallerside, but he keeps growing! This guy is all legs right now! With a shorter coat than a full Pyr, he will be much easier to groom than a big fluffer. He's eager to please and highly motivated by both food and attention, and not nearly as stubborn as a regular Pyr, which should make him much easier to train. He's neutered, housebroken and HW negative. He travels well in the car and is not afraid of thunder. He has destroyed a couple pairs of shoes, but otherwise does not chew the house or dig in the yard, which is pretty amazing for a puppy! He's more energetic than a typical pyr, so his ideal home would be with a more active family and/or with other dogs to play with. read more

 

Name: Tinkerbell
Found as a stray who was likely dumped in the country, based on where she was found, this girl is looking for her forever home. No one claimed her and a good Samaritan has been housing her for months. She's been entrusted to TGPR to find her the perfect forever home. She is super dog friendly, and good with kids. Located in the Austin area. She is house trained, although had a couple of accidents at first. Good with dogs and loves EVERYONE! This is one of the sweetest, most playful girls around! Popular everywhere she goes,she will be an amazing lifelong companion! read more

 

Name: Tres
Tres - so named because he has a third dew claw on one back leg, was surrendered in order to find him a good home. He's a little shy at first, as he wasn't handled much in his early life. We will call him a farm fail. He was just having a good time chasing the sheep, but his former owner didn't appreciate that too much. Not sure about his level of house training (likely not much) and he does enjoy spending a lot of time outside. Good with other dogs, kiddos, and unreactive to horses. When he met our evaluator, Tres immediately put his head in her lap. Submissive to other dogs. Will need work getting comfortable on leash. The same rancher who caught him chasing sheep, had already shot his mother. This kiddo deserves a chance at a good life. At this age, he is very trainable and will make for a great companion. read more

 

Name: Wilder
Wilder comes to us with some skin issues, and a bit underweight. Some serious TLC is underway, and he's already improving so much! Stay tuned as we get to know him read more
