Name: Amani
I am Amani. I am a very sweet and loving girl that was born 2/27/2017. My name means Wishes & Aspirations. My aspirations are to be adopted by YOU! I know the dog door as well as fully house and leash trained. I am probably a mix between a yellow lab and Great Pyrenees so my stature is tall and strong. I really enjoy watching TV with my foster family and other dogs too. A busy and noisy family is just fine with me! I just roll with the flow. I came to the program with heartworms but have since had the treatment and am doing great! Looking forward to my wishes coming true! Amani read more

 

Name: Atticus
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!!! read more

 

Name: Butters Worth
Butters is approximately 2 yrs old. She was found and cared for by a good Samaritan for several months before coming to TGPR. She has the sweetest personality and loves attention and to be petted. She is house trained and crate trained, although she has to be coaxed to go into crate but once in, she sits or lays right down until it's time to get out. She gets along great with the other dogs in her foster home as well as children, although she does accidently knock the little ones down when she gets excited. She is a little skittish at times, mainly with sudden movements or loud noises but appears to be improving daily. She lived with a cat for a couple of months prior to coming to TGPR. She does need work on her leash skills. She is treat motivated so we've been working on gaining her trust first. read more

 

Name: Dalilah
Hi, I'm Dalilah or Lila for short. I'm just a young girl, not quite 2. I LOVE to play with other dogs my size. My mom got sick and wanted me to have the best life possible so I've been living with some TGPR foster humans. Here's what they have to say about me: I adore my foster dude. I go in my kennel easily, and I am not phased to be in it, even if the humans are home. I am 99% potty trained; after my first accident in the house the first day, I have had perfect house manners. I love to play and walk, because I'm still a young girl... I still get excited and don't always know how to contain it so I pull a little but once I'm tired I do just fine. I know sit, and am always gentle when taking treats. I don't mind the car, though the vet is a scary place for me. When I am tired or anxious I like my space from the foster dogs and humans. I was very anxious to come to a new home away from my mom so it's taken me a little to adjust. I will need a patient and understanding forever human to adjust in the beginning, but once I trust them we will have an inseparable bond. I hung out with a toddler at my old home, but my foster humans think I'd do better with children school age and above. My old mom told TGPR I did well with cats too! read more

 

Name: Donald
Hi, my name is Donald and I am a fluffy friend, born in August 2017. 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 and anyone that wants to spend time with me. I am a little fearful of other dogs so I sometimes get a little protective of myself. I have never been with cats so I donít quite know how I will react. I am learning to walk 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 youíre interested! UPdate from foster: Donald is quite the velcro dog and is very loving and playful. Learning new commands each week. He's doing very well on leash so will be starting regular walks. read more

 

Name: Doug
Doug is a super sweet and playful big boy, approx 5-6 mos old, who 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", came to us because she doesn't get along with smaller dogs & puppies. She is very sweet, is housetrained, and will go in a crate when you leave the house, she just doesn't love being in it when her people are home. She's a smaller framed girl, and likes to romp and play with the other Pyr in her home. read more

 

Name: Grizzly
Grizzly was born about August 2017. HE came from a goat farm in OK and still very much wants to be with his peeps. We have tried him with goats but hes just not happy. Grizzly wants to be a companion dog when he grows up. So his foster said lets give it a whirl and see how it goes. Well Grizzly is one happy little boy... he claimed his fosters recliner as his own but is more than happy to share it if it means cuddle and petting time!! Hes housebroken and enjoys his chew toys and gets along with other dogs. You never know this could be the right furkid for you and your family! read more

 

Name: Gypsy Rose
Brand new to TGPR! My name is Gypsy Rose, born approximately 05/2018. 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: Indie

My foster says that despite my health issues I am playful loving and sweet. Do you think you could take me on? I promise I am a good good girl. read more

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. 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. He is about 6-7 years old, 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 animal being who 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. read more

 

Name: Lana
Lana is a beautiful 3-3 1/2 year old Great Pyrenees/Golden Retriever mix. She is current on her shots, flea and heartworm preventatives, in good general heath, and is heartworm negative and is spayed. Lana is smart, playful, and affectionate with both adults and children. She especially seems to like men. Lana can be ok with other pets, but occasionally will become growly at them if she thinks they are trespassing her space when she doesn't want them near. Lana is observant and knows how to use the doggy door. She is not a fence jumper, but can open a chain-link gate with her nose. She walks calmly on leash, loves cuddling, a good tummy rub, being brushed, and will readily load up into the car for a good ride. She would do well with either a family, a single adult, or couple who will love and pamper her. read more

 

Name: Mandy

Name: Mercy
Mercy is a sweet older lady, born in 6/2010. 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: 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 familyís cats as well as a friendly neighborhood kitty and doesnít 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. Sheís 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 someoneís family! read more

Name: Sky
Hi, my name is Sky! My owner is moving and unable to take me with her, so TGPR has promised to find me a new home. My birth date is 2/20/2016. I get along with cats and children, but I am very food/treat aggressive and should be the only dog in the home. I LOVE to be around my people and can get lonely when you leave me for too long! Everyone thinks I'm cute and funny because my tongue hangs out of my mouth. I know some tricks like sit and shake, but I need someone to help me learn how to walk better on a leash. I pull when I get excited. I do get along with other dogs, as long as there aren't food or edible treats lying around. read more

 

Name: Tank

Name: Teddy Rose
Hello! My name is Teddy and I am a 1 year old male Great Pyrenees mix. I weight about 50lb and Iím current on all medical stuff. Iím very lazy during the day, itís almost like I only have energy in the evening or when everyone goes to bed. I have two foster cat sisters that I get along with pretty well even though they donít play with me. I also have 5 foster kids that I let climb all over me and play with. They are ages 1.5 to 11 years old. Sometimes when I get to excited I nip at their hands and clothes so they will play more but when they tell me no I stop. I have also been to foster grandmas house and she has 2 dogs. I love to run and play with them but their kind of old and grumpy so I think I would do well with dog brothers or sisters my own age. Iím pretty calm and collected. Most days I usually just lay around on the couch or under the kitchen table. I love to run around the dog park. I am potty trained as long as you take me out every couple of hours or teach me that the doggy door wonít eat me. When Iím outside I like to roam around and watch everything. I only bark at night when the cat wonít play with me. Oh, I can sit and shake for a treat and Iím getting so much better at being easy when I take a treat - my foster baby is almost ready to start giving me treats. Considering Iím only a year old, I still have teeth coming in so shoes are really good to chew up and so are stuffed animals. I love to lay on my back and get belly rubs. I would love to have a forever family that will love me and spend time with me and give me lots to chew on. read more

 

Name: Timmy
Hey there! My name is Timmy, and Iím a Pyrs mix guy who was born 5/4/2017. My life has had a lot of ups and downs. I was on the run with my Mrs. and a family found us. They realized she was pregnant and tried to keep us all, but after our babies started getting bigger - they realized our whole family was just too much work. They surrendered us to a local animal shelter, where the nice folks contacted TGPR. Unfortunately, my Mrs. got sick and the vet had to let her cross the bridge and go to the beautiful sky up above. It was now me and my kids. They found their furever homes, and it made me a happy daddy. We all want our kids to do well. The will have a very happy life. But now it is my turn to try to find my little piece of happiness. My foster has this to say about me: Iím fully vetted, and heartworm negative. I have house manners, and will let you know when I need to go outside. I know some basic commands, like "No" and "back", but I think itís the Pyr in meÖ I donít always listen! Sit is a bit of a challenge Ė why ask me to sit, when I donít think I want to? I hear about this thing called a crateÖ what is it, and will I want to be in one? Only you can decide that one for me. When Iím not in the house with the family, I have a run outside, where I get to enjoy the fresh air! Iím a chill, laid back guy, but understand, Iím still very much a young pup. My foster calls me a puppy. Hey, Iím not that young! (Am I?) I am learning the difference between toys, shoes, remotes and glasses. (Iím such a smart fellah!) I learn quickly. I donít mean to try and be the boss, it just is my way. I really need someone to take me by the paw, and show me the way. I hear about these furry things called cats, just donít know what one is, and donít know if Iíll like Ďem. And when it comes to other dogs, I will show them whose boss! Iím not fearful of the other dogs! I donít do well if Iím challenged by another dog. If you think I would be a great addition to your family, and continue to teach me, Ask about me! Thanks! read more

 

Name: Travis
Travis came from a hoarding case, having lived his life in a cage. Since we brought him into our program he is having a hard time adjusting to being in a home with people noises. We are sending him to a lady who will help him adjust to a whole new world of sights and sounds. Travis "told" us: Iím approximately 1 year old. I had a rough start in my early months living in a crate all the time. I am still getting used to being outside of a crate although I like my crate for a safe zone when things get too scary for me. Iím learning to enjoy treats and am very food motivated. Unfortunately lots of things still scare me but I am getting better. At my last foster, I enjoyed playing with cats and even had them sleep with me in my crate during the day. Iím learning to enjoy being petted but still concerned with my safety. More to come in a few weeks as I start my journey to a new life! 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. 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
