Adoptable Dogs

Austin and Surrounding Counties

All of the dogs shown on this page are available for adoption through the Texas Great Pyrenees Rescue.


Name: Allie/Allison
Allison aka Allie is a gorgeous, sweet girl. She was acquired by her person to be a guardian dog, but she really prefers the company of people, escaping to hang out with the neighbors regularly. After an encounter with a snake, and realizing she wouldn't ever be happy working, she was surrendered to the local shelter, who got her to us. She's GORGEOUS and sweet as can be. We will update with personality details as we get to know her (intake 10/17/2018) read more


Name: Beau
New to TGPR Nov 2018. Gorgeous, young male Pyr. VERY Sweet and laid back. UTD on vaccinations, neutered, and just a great all around guy! Everyone who meets him falls in love. He won't be available for long! read more


Name: Bella Alva
Bella is such a beautiful, little girl! Little for a Pyr that is, at 2 years old she is only about 60 pounds! Bella takes some time to warm up but once she does, she is super sweet and loving. Bella loves and is most comfortable with other dogs around. She gets very protective of her home and her people. Bella would do very well in a home with little foot traffic and people willing to give her extra TLC. read more


Name: Brandy
Mom was a Pyr, dad??? This is the shy girl of the bunch. Calm and quiet, not too sure what's going on. New to TGPR 12/9 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: Comanche
Comanche is a wonderful, big guy. His owner passed away and extended family worked hard to keep him out of the shelter. He's a chill senior. He does have a thyroid issue, which will require medication for the rest of his life, but it's pretty inexpensive. He was horribly matted and dirty, so he had to get shaved down, but now that he's on good food and meds his coat is really coming back in nicely. A sweet guy who is good with kids and other dogs, he loves to roam and lay in the backyard as much as he likes to lay on the rug and snooze. read more


Name: Dove
New to TGPR- on hold read more


Name: Heath
New to TGPR- mom is Great Pyrenees, dad could have been anything! read more


Name: Hershey
New to TGPR! Mom was Great Pyr, dad was ???? 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: Kane
Can you believe this gorgeous boy ended up in a shelter? We estimate he was born May 2018. He's the healthiest puppy we've pulled out of a shelter all year! He's spunky and playful. Good with other dogs. He will need a playmate or solid exercise plan to keep this active guy happy. He does have a bit of a mouthy habit that we are working on breaking, so he will do best without small children around. He is picking up house training with ease! This guy is going to be quite the looker! And a whole lot of fun! 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
New to TGPR- on hold read more


Name: Marleigh
11/21 We got this gorgeous girl from a NE Texas shelter. Came in with a gun shot wound and shattered leg. Will be on medical hold for a few weeks while she gets healthy. She was a farm dog so we will be working with her on getting used to people and the good life of a beloved family member. She is working on learning how to walk on a leash, and house training. Shes very shy, though she has no aggressive tendencies at all. Due to her fearfulness of noises, she should be in a calm home without small children. 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: 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: Murphy
New to TGPR on 11/29/2018 - super good with cats. Prone to ear infections. VERY SWEET 120 lb lover boy! Will post more as his foster gets to know him. read more


Name: Piper
New! Mom was a Great Pyrenees and they came from the country. Dont know much else. Piper came in very ill and we are working on getting her better! read more


Name: Sergeant


Name: Sophie
New to TGPR read more


Name: Taffy
Mom was a Pyr... dad??? Cute as a button and fluffy. New to TGPR 12/9 read more


Name: Tighe
He's a little over 1 yr old now, no longer sick or scared. He's healthy, active & friendly. He appears to be an Akbash mix, but on the small side (65lb?) with a shorter coat, which means 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 still 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. At the moment, we aren't sure if she is house trained, or how she does with cats. Stay tuned as we learn more about her! read more


Name: Tito
Tito is almost 1 yr old with single dews on his hind legs, about 75 lbs but will still get bigger and grow. Neutered and all up to date with shots and preventions. He is just wonderful. Loves to play and knows basic commands. Crate trained and somewhat leash trained. Housetrained. He is still a puppy so would need lots of toys and company to play with. Loves all people incld children and dogs! Just look at how adorable he is. He will be your pyrfect pyr for your family. read more


Name: Tucker_beagle
No, your eyes aren't fooling you. Tucker is indeed a Beagle in a Great Pyrenees rescue group. He's what's now known as a Great Beaglenees!! This poor kid was surrendered to a shelter with his poodle brother, due to a divorce. The family couldn't afford the dogs anymore, and gave them up. When a poodle rescue picked up his buddy, poor Tucker was beside himself with grief and fear. We have some beagle friendly volunteers in our group and they asked TGPR to step in. Of course we couldn't say no! Poor Tucker was miserable - itchy skin, horrible ear infections, and worn down teeth from scratching. His foster is taking wonderful care of him, and he's settled in with his foster family nicely. He even has two other Beagles to play with! He's a REALLY sweet dog: good with kids, other dogs and kids. He's starting to cheer up and feel better, which is a relief to those who know him. Interested in giving him a forever home? Submit your application to get started! read more


Name: Yeti in Austin
My name is Yeti, I am an owner surrender that has been left outside a lot. I'm in foster now and doing my best to adjust to being inside and also to being with other dogs. I play pretty well with female dogs but feel a little territorial around male or dominant dogs. I'm also working on my house training. Since I was outside so much my manners need some work too but I'm very smart and very people friendly! read more
