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: Bailey (fka Ruby)
Bailey, formerly Ruby of the Jewel litter, was initially adopted out at 8 weeks of age. The family who has had her these last couple of years wasnt in a position to manage her any longer and so she is back! This BEAUTIFUL girl is more people focused than dog focused. She has passed a cat test. House trained with beautiful obedience skills, she is looking for her forever home. She might prefer to be an only child, but can cohabitate with other dogs as long as there is no food or toys left around the house. Like many Pyr, she does resource guard. That's pretty simple to manage by feeding her separately or in a crate. Looking for a large, fluffy, sweet girl? Get your application in! 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: 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: Crystal
Hi, I'm Crystal! Well me, my brothers and sisters (9 in all) had a rough start. We were dropped off at a shelter at just 4 weeks old. We still needed our mama. TGPR found foster parents for us and off we went to live with them in Royse City. So our story became happy. Our foster Mommy and Daddy take very good care of us. We all are at a healthy weight with chubby bellies lol. I have to tell ya Im kind vocal and pushy to attention. I dont want to miss out on a chance to get petted,a belly rub or being held. I love playing even with the big dogs inside. Our foster daddy made us a special pen with chicken wire sides for outside.I can look out and see whats happening and to enjoy the sunshine too. Pretty soon its time for me to move on to my furever home and family. Who knows maybe some new brothers or sisters or even one of mine I have here. We are going to be at the Rockwall Petsmart meet and Greet on the 2nd Sunday of May. Please put in application to adopt one or couple of us! Mommy isnt very computer savvy so she says for me to tell y'all to go on FB to Chloes Daily Diary and ask to join. Theres videos and pictures of me. They arent flattering since they are from the first few days we got here but Mommy says shes going to get some new ones! Come find me!!! read more

Name: Ethel
Hi, I'm Ethel! My story starts out as a sad one but gets happy and will get even happier once I am adopted. Ya see my brothers, sisters and I got dropped off at a shelter and we were just 4 weeks old. TGPR heard about us and wanted to help. So they got us these great foster parents in Royse City. Since we came to live with them we have gotten stronger, bigger, healthier and happy! We lounge around outside on the back porch in a crate our daddy built just for us and we can see what their dogs are doing and enjoy the sunshine. Mommy says I am a little sweetie. I dont make much noise at all and I am pretty chill. I havent got in trouble for chewing on her toes like some other pups I know have lol. I love being held and getting lots of sugars. I like stuffed toys best especially if they make noise. Mommy has gives us bedtime snacks and chewies plus we even listen to the radio.Mommy says go to Chloes daily Diary on FB and look at pictures and videos of us. Shes sorry but shes not real computer savvy but she tries. All this stuff on there was our first week here but Mommy is going to take newer pictures and videos of us for y'all to enjoy.

Name: Harvey
Hey y'all! My name is Harvey and I am a true Texan inside and out. My real name is Hurricane Harvey because during that huge storm I found myself on a construction lot scared to death and seeking shelter from the rain, lightning and thunder. I'm still a bit scared of storms but handle them great with a human by my side. That was 2 years ago and I lived outside on the heavy equipment lot for two years dodging big trucks daily, but ever since TGPR took me in I finally feel safe and loved and with a bright future. I love water. I mean I really really really love water and of course swimming. I also love walks morning and night (one day I even walked my human for 9 miles!), so if you are looking for an exercise buddy that is me! Car rides are super fun and I stay super chill, especially if we are together. My foster dad says I am the nicest boy ever so I'm here seeking a human best friend to live with and love forever. Are you that human? I really hope you are because I know the future's so bright I gotta wear shades. You can't go wrong with me I promise. 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: Krome fka Jasper
(MEDICAL HOLD) 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: Mae West of the Rogue Litter
Meet Mae West! A bruiser, like her brothers, this girl loves to wrestle and play! It appears she will be a good sized girl when she's done growing. Isn't she adorable?!

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: Morrison of the Rogue Litter
Morrison is a fun loving, adorable boy. He's generally middle of the pack, not one to be annoying by barking all of the time. He will play by himself, or with his siblings. He is so cute!

Name: Napoleon of the Rogue Litter
Napoleon is a big boy with a stubby tail! We have no idea how half this litter ended up with docked tails, but they are so cute! He's black with white, a double coated boy.

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: 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
