Name: Atticus
Atticus is a sweet boy born on 07/01/2012. Atticus is the Sheldon Cooper of the dog world. Poor boy was apparently not socialized well as a young dog and therefore is a tad awkward with other dogs. He can be fearful of new people, so introductions must proceed slowly. He responds well to food, so is very easy to train. Atticus loves his walks on the leash. He prefers his kennel as his safe space and will self place if he feels anxious. One he is secure, Attie is playful and very affectionate. Atticus would love nothing more than to have a sofa, or warm bed to stretch out on near his person. He gives the greatest snuffy kisses!! Its best if you keep your trash contained and soap up high in your shower, or else he will find it and it it!! Bazinga!!! Atticus is being fostered in Sherman, TX. read more

Name: Buddy Holly
They call me Buddy Holly because I was found in rodeo town, Mesquite Texas and I am full on a country boy!! I am friendly, curious and a lover at heart. "Its So Easy" to fall in love with me. "I'm looking for someone to love" and it doesn't have to be "Peggy Sue" I am told I have some nasty worms in my heart, but "That will be the Day" when they get me down!! "Maybe Baby" I am the boy for you!! PS, don't be turned off by my short hair. I came in kind of rugged, but before I was shaved by my rescuer, I had a "stick em up" helmet head and the beginning of a pretty decent Pyr mane read more

Name: Devin the Fluffy
Devin the Fluffy is a sweet, young girl (DOB: 11/2018) who was dumped with mange and needing groceries. She loves a good game of bitey face or wrestling with her fur siblings. She is crate trained and housetrained. She has been around little humans (ages 1-11) and acted perfect. Although she does okay on a leash we are continuing to practice and learning good manners. Now that she has gotten rid of the mange, current on vaccinations and been spayed she is ready to find her perfect home. She is being fostered in Idalou, TX. read more

 

Name: Giorgio
My name is Giorgio; born 08/2015! I am debonair and unbelievably handsome. Unfortunately, my human dad passed away and my momma isn't able to care for me anymore, so I'm coming back to the rescue. I am great wit dogs, cats and children. I'm super sweet and would love to impress you with my sit and shake skills. I am fully potty trained, walk well on a leash and ride well in the car. Can you help me out with a new home?! I'm currently being fostered in Dennison. read more

 

Name: Grace of the Joshua Litter
Hi, I'm Grace of the Joshua Litter. I was born on 8/4/2019 and have 6 siblings. We are all looking for our forever homes - can you help us? read more

 

Name: Gypsy Rose
My name is Gypsy Rose, born approximately 05/2018. I am still quite a pup. Therefore I am exuberant, love to play with other dogs both big and small. I will take an experienced dog lover because I am still learning not to jump and that I do not always have to bark loudly at another dog right off. I have been around cats most of my life, and they're fine; I just walk on looking for someone else to play with. I am well into my training for sitting and I do well on a lead. Other than me being a loving life young pup, I would be a great family dog. And by the way...those of you that don't want the big hairy dog, I have a wonderful smooth coat and the dominant trait, of the double dews. Come and see me at the monthly Denton meet and greet at Petsmart. read more

 
 

Name: Ivory Bryn
Hi, my name is Ivory! I was born in January of 2016. I'm still trying to figure the world out... some things still cause me to be a little bit shy and afraid so I really thrive in a home on the quiet side but I am very gentle and loving. My favorite thing in the world is to have my human pet my head, it is FAB-U-LOUS. I guess I have this thing called heartworms and have just undergone treatment! I'll be available after I recover. I love to have dog friends and I don't mind cats. I prefer to stay outside, but I will come inside as well. Storms and fireworks are super scary, and someone treated me very badly before I came to rescue, so I really need an experienced owner who understands and can help me feel safe and loved. Want to be my furever home?! We can cuddle all the time! I am being fostered in Paradise, TX. read more

 

Name: Leah
Hi, my name is Leah. I was born approximately 9/15/2017 and am a love bug! I came into the rescue from the shelter, along with my four pups. My foster says I look like an Akbash/Collie mix, but I'll never tell! I am extremely patient and walk well on a leash. I am an energetic girl who needs to have room to run, but I'm also content sleeping on the couch. I love swimming, so a pool or pond to play in would be a bonus! I'm friendly with other dogs, kids, and even kitties! Being somewhat young, I still sometimes play like a puppy, so make sure your shoes are put away! I'm sure I'll learn as I mature. I can't wait to find my home! read more

 

Name: Liberty Aka Libby
Libby is an 80-lb, 5-year old magical ball of floof. Shes calm 95% of the time and the other 5% has the zoomies, especially right as you get home. She has the sweetest disposition and would love nothing more than to rest her entire body on your lap for pets. Shes house-trained but would probably do best in a home with a yard so she can get her 5% activity out easily. She takes a little bit to adjust to new places, and can be spooked by sudden noises. For example, she was afraid of the fire hydrant for a couple weeks because as she was sniffing it a loud noise sounded behind her. She can run after a squirrel with the best of them and would do best being walked by someone who can handle quick changes of direction when necessary. She needs to be in a home where she can be the only dog, as she prefers her own space. Experienced Pyrenees owners could do slow intros and separate spaces when not home, but shes had disagreements with other animals in the home indicating a solitary lifestyle with her as the center of attention would be ideal. Libby will be finishing her heartworm treatment and rest period approx. 10/15 and will be ready for her furever home! read more

 

Name: Luna Bear Rollins
Luna Bear is a sweet, beautiful lady we think is 7 years old (born in 2012). She was left behind on a farm when the owner moved, but luckily a Realtor rescued her. She was an outdoor dog but now loves to be inside with her people. She is an extremely affectionate lady and loves attention. She does really well on a leash and is learning to love car rides. She has short bursts of energy and will explore the scents and sounds of her property but comes right back to door and wants inside. She loves to be where you are. A couple of pets and kisses and she lays down to rest. She is dog and cat friendly and has shown excellent manners around young children. She is spayed, is current on all shots and is a very easy keeper. She would love to find her forever family who will spoil her with lots of love and attention. Luna is being fostered in Royse City. read more

 

Name: Max of the Joshua Litter
Hi, I'm Max of the Joshua Litter. I was born on 8/4/2019 and have 6 siblings. We are all looking for our forever homes - can you help us? read more

 

Name: Mercy
Mercy is a sweet older lady, born in 6/2010. She is being fostered in Sanger, TX. Mercy is calm and laid back. She doesn't take no gruff from the young whipper snappers and will put them in their place, even if that means leaving her nice peaceful corner to get a little sassy with an over-exuberant fellow dog. She's great with male and female dogs as long as they are moderately chill. Some energy okay, but she's the kind of dog that would yell "Get off my lawn" while shaking her fists in the air. She came to TGPR after being found at an abandoned chicken house very sickly and hardly eating. She's perked up with antibiotics and eye drops and her true personality is showing. She's a sweet girl and good with kids (but given her age, kids shouldn't be allowed to rough house with her). She loves her 5 year old girl and greets her with a kiss before settling in her corner. She likes having a corner of cold floor for herself. Uses a doggie door just fine and does not use the furniture. She's PETITE...67 lbs...super fluffy on short legs with double dew claws. She lets you love on her but likes to spit out her pills (typical). If you're looking for a sweet AND grumpy girl who is well mannered and wants to prowl the house, she's your gal. Update from foster: Mercy has a touch of arthritis controlled by 1/2 a pill a day (cost $25 per month) and now has some pep in her step and is eating well. read more

 

Name: Nanuck of Christmas Litter
Returning to TGPR - more to come after I go through training! read more

 

Name: Naomi
Naomi and her four puppies came to TGPR in need of a lot of TLC. She currently lives with two other dogs and loves running, wrestling, and laying with them. She should go to a home where she has a fur-sibling to play with and teach her confidence. Naomi is good with cats too. She has been around children and with instruction to approach slowly and calmly, she has done very well with them. Her safe space is in her crate if she gets overwhelmed. Noami is still a bit shy and is not your typical cuddly dog. However, she does show love and appreciation to her foster family by excitedly greeting them and giving them licks on their hands. She's happy to have a comfy spot to sleep on, some bones to chew on, and is thrilled when she receives treats! Naomi was born in February of 2015 and is being fostered in Midland, TX. read more

 

Name: Nicholas
Come one, come all - fall in love with my ice blue eyes! Hi my name is Nicholas! I was born in approximately December of 2016. I am being fostered in The Colony, TX. I am a very kind, loving boy! I love to give hugs and tell you I love you! I get along with big and little dogs but my foster does not know how I would do with cats. They say I do well with men, women, and older children. I would be best suited in a home without young children. I dont mind little children but Im not sure what to do with them so I just go off by myself when little ones are running around the house. I have some night vision issues, but it does not hold me back! I am still learning about the kindness of people in this world and would do great with a patient owner that gives me time to adjust in new situations. I need to be in a home where someone is home with me the majority of the day or another doggy playmate. I am a ladies man and prefer female companions but a non dominant male is fine also. Once I feel safe with a person or situation I am a very happy camper! read more

 

Name: Patch
Brand new - more to come! read more

 

Name: Patty Stone
Patty is brand new to TGPR! This old gal was born in 2011 and is being fostered in Denton, TX. She guarded cattle, chicken and a property for many years, but has since retired. At her foster's home she is learning what it's like to be a house dog and is quite shy. Her kennel is her safe place and she's starting to wag her tail when people come to visit. Patty will be slow to warm up, but once she finds her person - she'll be living her best retirement life! read more

 

Name: Pippin

Name: Ponder Baby
My name is Ponder Baby. I was born approx Feb 2019. I am a little female but big on personality! I am great with lots of dogs or people. I enjoy the house as well as outside. If you are interested in me, fill out an application at txpyrs.org. Gotta go play with the big white dogs! Ponder Baby read more

 

Name: Squirt
Squirt looks like he fits his name, but, though he is small, he is mighty! Born in fall 2017, this Great Pyrenees x Anatolian Shepherd has resigned the working life to become a pet. He is a very well balanced dog. He was surrendered only because the farm where he was born had a dog population problem. Squirt is playful and puppy-like with other dogs. He has been in multiple large packs of dogs and has not started any trouble. He is very loving and happy to be around his people. He would be a fantastic hobby farm pet dog, because he is sweet and social with everyone he meets, including children. Squirt rides in a vehicle well and walks very calmly on a leash. He is very versatile and adaptable. He would even do very well as an apartment dog due to his smaller size. Squirt's only flaw is that he is not safe with free range chickens, however, he is not a coop marauder. Squirt is neutered, UTD on vaccinations, and ready to adopt. He is currently in Kingsville. Come and meet him! read more

Name: Trinity D
Trinity D, born approx 10/1/17, is a sweet little girl who loves to play with everyone, and snuggle with her humans. Trinity is being fostered in Forney, TX. She was found as a stray at just 14 wks old, and appears to have a slight unique gait when she walks and sometimes falls easily when trying to round corners on hard floors. We had x-rays done to rule out hip dysplasia, but she seems to be improving with time. She will wake you up to go outside and is doing so well on learning housetraining. She knew how to sit and shake hands and she goes and sits in her crate when it's time for her humans to leave the house. She is extremely smart, and loves to pick out all of the blue toys in the house to play with. She also loves her naps, and even fell asleep while playing with the doorstop once. She looks like a golden lab mix but her DNA test came back with so many good breeds: Rottweiler, herding breeds, Great Pyrenees & Labrador! read more

 

Name: Willie Nelson
***TGPR Heart Dog*** Heart Dogs have been in the rescue a long time, had several moves, or have special needs. There is a dog for every heart and a heart for every dog. Featured Heart Dogs need a little extra help finding their person. Hey ya'll!! I am "on the road again" in search of my forever family!! Born in October of 2013, I am a mature happy boy, fully vetted and ready for my new home! You can find me in Waxahachie, TX right now. I enjoy playing with other dogs, but I do need slow introductions to get to know them. I am not great at understanding social cues, so impatient or very dominant dogs are not for me! I need a sweet, laid back life of snuggles and adoration. I don't like to be crowded, but once we get used to each other I learn to trust quickly. I have been bounced around enough and need my forever family to find me and fall for me. My foster says I am a love sponge and a dream on leash. I just love being connected to my person in any way that I can. My foster said that a quiet home is what I really need, but I could be a city dog with regular leash walks. Please don't bring me to the dog park! I get so confused about what those other dogs are trying to tell me! read more

Discipline isn't about showing a dog who's boss; it's about taking responsibility for a living creature you have brought into your world.
