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: Big Bear
Big Bear is a chunky headed hunk of burning love!! His name should be Elvis!! He was born in roughly 2012 and was one of 5 dogs rescued by TGPR from a backyard breeder. Currently BB is heartworm positive but his treatment has been started. He needs some groceries to get back to a healthy weight so he can be neutered. Big Bear's temperent is the quintessential "Gentle Giant" This boy is unreactive to other reactive dogs. He just does not get excited. Care must be taken with his enclosure as he will escape but only to find his people!! This boy is not interested in walk abouts. He is interested in LOVE LOVE LOVE!! IF you are looking for a mature loving dog, this is the boy for you. read more

Name: Cue Ball
Mama (aka Cue Ball) is a 6 yo lady who loves people, and is great with cats and other calm dogs. Super calm and gentle with kids, doesn’t jump up on people. She takes a little bit to get comfortable with new dogs, but once she gets to know them, she becomes best buddies. A few of Mama’s favorite things: SNUGGLES! (even better if on the couch). NAPS! (especially on the couch or in the flower bed outside). BONES! (but doesn’t care about toys). WALKS! (runs to the door, ready for adventure when she sees the leash – she’s a slow stroll kinda gal) Chicken Nuggets! (and treats of all kinds). Mama is crate trained (sometimes puts herself to bed in the crate when she’s tired), house trained (no accidents!), and rides well in the car (she needs a lift getting in though). She may need slow introductions time to adjust in a new home with new siblings, to know that nobody will take her food away, and that the meals will keep coming, but no doubt she’ll feel secure in a short amount of time. Her foster sis is 1.5 yo and super playful – Mama occasionally joins in, but mostly likes to watch. Mama can be left out while gone for a few hours and will nap until you come home. Mama is one of the calmest, sweetest, softest pups you’ll ever meet – if you’re looking for an 85 lb snugglebug who snores lightly to join your family – look no further! 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: Georgia Peach
Well hello there! I am Ms. Georgia Peach. My birthday is easy to remember. It is 12/24/2015. Yep, Christmas Eve! My owner has had me since I was an 8 week old baby. She still has my boy, Regan who she helped bring into this world. She lost her husband to a memory home, the house is now an RV and well two big dogs in a small space are hard. I am great wth cats and kids too! As we say with the lipstick kiss, she loved me to allow her to come into the rescue program. I am spayed and fully vetted. I am Great Pyrenees through and through. I am even AKC registered! I am wonderful on the lead. I enjoy the dog park, walks and just lounging around like a Great Pyr likes to do. I am fully vetted and ready for my new home. I would love to be in a home by Christmas Eve, what a birthday present that would be for me! Georgia Peach read more

 

Name: Giorgio

Name: Griffin FKA: Victor
Hi! My name is Victor and I was born 2/26/2018. I'm a big boy (93 pounds) who loves to be pet! I have soulful eyes and a shorter coat. More to come as my foster gets to know me! I came into TGPR when they rescued my litter, along with my dad in 2018. Unfortunately, my mom passed away from seizures at the vet's office after we were dropped off at the shelter. I was adopted, but unfortunately I had to come back to TGPR because my adopted brother started attacking me when we played. It was pretty traumatic, but I'm starting to feel safe again with the rescue. I'm being fostered in Sanger, TX - I'd love to meet you! read more

 
 
 
 

Name: Leafling Litter
Our newest babies, born to Momma Olivia on 10/23/2019! Available for adoption at 10 weeks of age. Keep an eye out for updates on Facebook! read more

 

Name: Liberty Aka Libby
Libby is an 80-lb, 5-year old magical ball of floof. She’s 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. She’s 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 she’s 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: Maurice
My name is Maurice and I was born in 2017. I am a super sweet boy, that does not bark, and am good with dogs. I love to roll blankets up in my doggie bed... mostly cuz I never had any!! My foster says I need to gain some weight and she is doing her best to help me!! Do you have a place I can call home? 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: Momma Olivia
Poor momma was surrendered to a kill shelter IN LABOR. Pulled to safety by TGPR, she had her NINE puppies at her forsters home on her first night! She's healthy and doing really well. Will be adopted after her puppies are adopted out and she's been spayed. Watch for updates on Facebook! 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 don’t mind little children but I’m 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: Olaf (FKA: Nanuck)
My name is Olaf (aka Nanuck) and I was born 11/2018. I was adopted out as a puppy, but unfortunately my family wasn't able to train me and I was returned for a lack of manners. I've spent 5 weeks in obedience training and am doing great in my new foster home. I love to snuggle and play. My foster mom is going to continue to work on my manners like the trainer taught me. I make a great running partner because I have learned how to heel. I'm being fostered in Dallas - please come meet me! read more

 

Name: Patch
Patch, AKA Nana is 85 lbs of fluff and sweetness; born 06/2018. She looks to be a Pyr mix with beautiful coloring and soulful eyes. She lives in Plano with her “empty nest” foster family. She enjoys visits, walks and attention from their adult daughter. She is their only pet besides the beta fish. She is very shy and gentle. She enjoys flavor-filled bones, hotdogs and shredded chicken….and maybe the occasional shoe… but, when given a toy to chew instead, she gladly accepts! She enjoys the good life of plush toys, treats, and a soft bed. She adores being brushed and petted, especially her belly! She responds very well to positive reinforcement and redirection. She is very aware and somewhat fearful of loud noises and voices. She is trying to learn to sit on “her furniture” not her foster family’s, thus she loves her fluffy bed and the treats she gets for sitting on it (Most likely, she would adore her own sofa and tiara!). While she does have some anxiety issues with strangers, loud noises and leashes, she does seem to find a way to overcome and trust. She will benefit greatly from obedience and socialization classes. She tends to take herself away from the situation and go to her safe and quiet place if she needs space. She seems to be thriving with consistency and attention. She is not at all aggressive or destructive. She is crated when no one is home, but free to roam around when the family is home. She seems to get along well with other dogs. She is not yet kid-tested or kitty approved. read more

 

Name: Patty Stone
Hello! I am Patty. I was born 3/27/2011. I was very faithful in guarding cattle, chicken and my property for years, butmy owner and I have gotten a bit older and we have now both retired from farming. I am now a house pet girl! It has taken me several months to learn the art of being a house dog. I have come a very long way since Sept 2019. I now interact with the other dogs and cats as well as a toddler who lives within the house. My kennel is my safe place and if I do get a little shook due to a lot of activity, I will just go to my crate and watch it all. While I a little slow to warm up to new people, it is "mountains" better than not coming to people at all. I am house trained but still learning the leash. My wish is to just relax with my new family who does not mind me watching a bit of TV with them. My new family will need patience so I can continue to fully enjoy the life of a house dog! Love Patty read more

 
 

Name: Snow Princess
Hello My name is Snow Princess! I was born on 3/23/2019. I am brand new to TGPR so while I am an adorable and beautiful princess, I do come with barking, shedding and was rehomed due to jumping the fence. I love other dogs, playing with stuffed toys and the water. This group took me in because they know that all I need is a little bit of one on one attention and training which can be continued when adopted! I am waiting for my "fairy tale" ending! If you are interested in finishing my story please fill out an application at TXPYRS.ORG. Looking forward to meeting you soon! Snow Princess read more

 

Name: Squirt
Squirt looks like he fits his name, but, though he is small, he is mighty! Born in September 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. He is currently fostered with multiple cats, and just ignores them (or turns the other cheek if they swat at him!). 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 is located in the Denton, TX area. Come and meet him! read more

 

Name: Sweet Pea
Brand new - more to come! read more

 

Name: Tex
Tex is a young pyr cross estimated at 3. He really loves to play and have room to run and would do best in a home with a large yard or land. He really likes toys and tends to hog them from the other dogs so making sure there are plenty for everyone will be perfect. He tends to be nervous around strangers and needs a family to help him gain his confidence. Once he has gained confidence he would make a great running partner. Because he is so nervous a home with older children would be best. He loves to put his head on your lap and really likes his tail scratches. He will make sure to remind you to pet him by using that famous Pyr paw to remind you that you have stopped and need to continue He is housebroken and does well with both other dogs and cats. 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
