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: Augustus (Gus)
Gus in 3 years old and is an expert at jumping 5ft fences... he needs a taller one. Gus was a country dog and was used to ranging as far as he wanted to, but he would do great as a house companion. He will need good fencing. Despite his jumping skills, Gus is laid back and when he gets out he leads his foster on "Low Speed Chase" as he visits every bush in the neighborhood and stays just out of reach. Gus is friendly and loving. He is a definitely a lap dog and is happy in the house. He makes doggie friends quickly. He and his foster sister Lilo were best buds within 10 minutes and he walked into the "house pack" like he had been living with them for years. He is interested in the house kitty but does not chase. Kitty has decided that Gus passed the cat test and now wanders freely in front of him. Gus will be neutered on 3/6/19 and is already current on his vaccinations. He rides fine and is great on his leash. He is just a great big goof that loves to patrol "his" territory, which will include the whole neighborhood if you like to leash walk. If you would like more info please fill out an application, after its approved his foster family will be happy to tell you more about "Augie Doggie" "Mr. GUSfaston" or "GUStopher" as he is known around the house. read more

Unfortunately, at the vet we found out I was heartworm positive, had double ear infections and needed groceries badly! I went through my heartworm treatment and am waiting a few more weeks before my neuter. I am good with children, enjoy being around cats and like dogs.

Name: Donald
Hi, my name is Donald and I am a fluffy friend, born in August 2017. My foster is taking care of me in Forney, TX. I was found wandering with my friend Daisy. I enjoy having my belly rubbed and my paw patted. I love tasty snacks like cheese, treats, and bacon grease....YUM! I love kids, but don't like them pulling on my head or body.... it scares me! I need slow intros to people and dogs, so I can get comfortable. I have never been with cats so I don’t quite know how I will react. I walk well on a leash and obey basic instructions like sit, stay and come. I definitely love being outside and exploring! I would love to meet you if you’re interested! read more

 

Name: Doug
Doug is a super sweet and playful big boy, born 4/1/2018. He is being fostered in Leonard, TX. He looks to maybe have some Anatolian or maybe St Bernard in him, and chocolate lab from mama. We can only guess, Doug and his sister Mandy were found running loose as a litter with a mama chocolate labrador as people nearby were trying to shoot at them to get rid of them. Mama and 2 siblings didn't make it, but luckily they found a sweet loving family to help them find forever homes they deserve. read more

 

Name: Eleanore
Eleanore, or "Ellie", was born in August of 2018. Ellie is being fostered in Mansfield, TX. She came to us because she doesn't get along with smaller dogs & puppies.

Name: Gypsy Rose
My name is Gypsy Rose, born approximately 05/2018. I am being fostered in Denton, TX. I'm just a pup and still learning the ways of the world. TGPR thinks I'm Pyr mixed with Giraffe.... because I am just SO tall. I keep telling them I'm not Giraffe, but they don't believe me! I love to play with the other foster puppy I'm bunking with. My foster mom is working on leash manners, along with teaching me how to sit. I get a little grumbly with my food, so foster mom is feeding me separate for now. It may be that I had to fend for myself and don't know when my next meal will come - I think I'll learn in time that meals are steady. More to come as my foster mom gets to know me! 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.

Name: KATO
Kato is a people-friendly, dog-friendly, and cat-friendly "gentle giant" whose family was not able take him when they moved out of state. Kato was born on 02/25/2011. He loves attention--especially belly rubs, but any kind of petting and loving--which he would much rather have than the finest food. If you stop too soon, he will reach out to you with a giant paw and encourage you to continue. Kato is neutered, chipped, and up to date on all shots and his ProHeart6 injection. Kato has a beautiful light and darker tan coat, and he has the classic Pyr double dew claws. More important, Kato is a lovely dog who wants and needs a loving family and will surely be a loving companion. Kato apparently has spent most of his life outside, though he would love to spend most of his time inside. We don't know if he is totally house-trained, but after being inside for several hours he always answered nature's calls outdoors. Kato is a 124-pound Gentle Giant who nuzzles our cat and is gentle with everyone, though he occasionally barks at people unexpectedly walking in the alley behind his house. He and his yard mate, a high energy black Labrakita, get along well. When he's not being petted Kato enjoys lying in the sun watching the birds and squirrels. Kato is being fostered in Lubbock. 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 a great mother, extremely patient and am a very quiet girl. I walk well on a leash, but don't know any tricks. After my pups are weaned, my foster mom will start to teach me some things. For now, I'm working on weaning and teaching my pups, then I'll get spayed and be available for adoption. Would love to meet you!!! read more

Name: Mandy
Mandy is a super sweet and playful girl, born 4/1/2018. She is being fostered in Leonard, TX. She looks to maybe have some Anatolian or maybe German Shepherd in her, and very likely chocolate lab. We can only guess, Mandy and her brother Doug were found running loose as a litter with a mama chocolate labrador as people nearby were trying to shoot at them to get rid of them.

Name: Mercy
Mercy is a sweet older lady, born in 6/2010. She is being fostered in Daingerfield, 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: Mr. Darcy (aka Bear)
Meet Mr Darcy (aka Bear)!! Born approximately 1/9/2015. Mr. Darcy is being fostered in Anna, TX. He is a total love bug! He's great with all dogs he's met, has excellent manners with cats and LOVES children. He doesn't bark much, but vigilantly patrols the yard. His story is a sad one... Owners pulled up to the shelter with uhaul connected to truck. Said they were moving and dumped him. He was matted so badly that hair was ripping away from his skin. The dirt was so thick that his skin was scaly and he was brown instead of white. After a good groom, he's still stained yellow, but his skin is clear and mats are gone. Then, he got adopted by an amazing family who loved him very much. Unfortunately, the man of the house got very sick and Mr. Darcy (Bear) didn't react well. We think he could sense the decline in health. They had to return him due to his reaction. This big boy needs a home of his own. Are you that home? read more

 

Name: Naomi
Naomi and her four puppies came to TGPR scared and in need of a lot of TLC. Naomi stayed at a wonderful boarding facility where a kind trainer helped her with socialization and she then moved on to a foster home where she is doing very well. Naomi absolutely adores her furry foster brothers so it will be a requirement that she goes to a home with at least one other dog. She currently lives with three boy dogs and loves running, wrestling, and laying together with them. She has met many other dogs and always does fantastic with making new friends. Naomi has met her foster family’s cats as well as a friendly neighborhood kitty and doesn’t mind them at all. She has been around children and with instruction to approach slowly and calmly, she has done very well with them. She enjoys taking walks and moseying along while taking in the scenery and has discovered that splashing in water is one of her favorite activities! Noami is an independent gal and is more interested in hanging out with her dog pals than her humans. She’s 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! She's honestly pretty easy to have around because she doesn't demand attention. This gorgeous girl is going to make a delightful addition to someone’s family! Naomi was born in February of 2019 and is being fostered in Midland, TX. read more

 

Name: Nicholas
Hi my name is Nicholas! I was born in December of 2016. I am being fostered in The Colony, TX. I am a very kind, loving boy! 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 but I would be best suited in a home without young children. I might have some sight issues, but if so it does not hold me back! I am still learning this world and would do great with a patient owner that gives me time to adjust in new situations. Once I feel safe with a person or situation I will be a very happy camper! read more

 

Name: Pearl Adeline
Brand New! Hi, my name is Pearl. TGPR thinks I was born in 02/2016. I am being fostered in Kaufman, TX. I am not as big as some female pyrs, I only weigh about 70 lbs! I am a sweet playful girl but I am happy to say I have matured out of that puppy "energy" stage! I am patient with puppies, get along with cats, and love love male dog companions to hang out with! I would really like to have a tall, fenced yard to hang out in because sometimes I will dig or jump out of the yard pin. But truthfully, I would enjoy hanging out with all the humans in my furever family all day, every day. :) 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
Hey ya'll!! I am "on the road again" in search of my forever family!! My last family thought I should live with their goats, but I prefer humans. Like my momma always said" don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys!" There will be no blue eyes crying in the rain" if you adopt me. Born in October of 2013, I am a mature happy boy, fully vetted and ready for my new home! You can find me in Sanger, TX right now. I enjoy playing with other dogs, but I do need slow introductions to get to know them. I do have some resource guarding, so treats and food should be given to me in a secluded area. read more
