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 Love
Buddy Love is a beautiful, very sweet boy born on 05/01/2017. He is being fostered in Terrell, TX. His foster says "Buddy is royal and regal, scamp and tramp. He is watchful and resourceful and will never leave your side. He's gentle and playful and a bit naughty at times, but he knows when he's been bad and he'll give you the "paw". Just one look at that sweet face and your heart will go "Awwwww" ;)" Buddy can be food aggressive, gets along well with kids, dogs and cats, but he will chase the cats if they run. He's crate and housetrained, and won everyone over at the last adoption event he was at. read more

 

Name: Cooper Lee
Hi, I'm Cooper. I was born in December of 2016. I am being cared for in Sanger, TX. A very nice lady found me and alerted TGPR that I needed help. They rescued me from the shelter - I'm so happy!! Unfortunately, at the vet we found out I am heartworm positive, have double ear infections and need groceries badly! I'm going to go through heartworm treatment and then will be ready for adoption. I am good with children, enjoy being around cats and like dogs. I'm a lovebug, but I am afraid of car rides. More to come as they get to know me, but please consider adopting me!! read more

 

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 donít 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 youíre 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. Ellie 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. Want to be Eleanore's forever companion?! read more

 

Name: Gracie Ann
Hi, my name is Gracie Ann! I was born 5/20/2018. I am being fostered in Denton, TX. I am a smaller girl but I am BIG on love! I really love to spend time with my humans and love to be the center of attention! I am a big snuggler but I can get a bit irritated if other dogs are in my face. If there is an empty lap available, I promise you I will find it! I was not feeling so well when I came into this rescue because of puppy mange but I am on the mend and feeling fine! If you want a gorgeous female who loves to watch TV and snuggle in bed...I am your girl1 Love Gracie Ann read more

 

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: Indie
MEDICAL HOLD My name is Indie and I am a little squirt! I was born in May of 2017 and I am being cared for in McKinney, TX. Turns out I have a little medical issue that TGPR is really working hard to cure!! The Doctors don't know why but my kidneys aren't working properly. While things are improving and I feel a LOT better, I am not out of the woods yet. 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: 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. 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: 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 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! 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: Ona (aka: Dayna)
My name is Ona. I was born Jan 2009 but I am a happy senior girl looking for a family to keep me company! I am being fostered in Paradise, TX. I promise not to be too much work for you seeing as how I am not as energetic as some of those young pups are. Also, if you have chickens or cats I wonít harm them. I love to snuggle and be inside with you. I do well with other dogs, and overall Iím just a happy friendly girl. Maybe you have a place for me.... 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: Stella Hope
Stella Hope is coming into the rescue on 2/9/2019. More to come as we learn about her! Stella was born in July of 2012 and is currently being fostered in Idalou, TX. read more

 

Name: Tank
Hey there! My name is Tank. I was born approx 3/2018. I am being fostered in Ponder, TX. While I am a very active and loving pup, I need a family that has older kids and or adults. I do have double dew claws of the Great Pyrenees but the short smooth coat of a lab. I NEED an active family. I know the dog door and am potty trained. I live with several other dogs both big and small and will play and play and play if they have the time to give me. I love the doggy pool so if you are looking for that handsome young man to walk the beach, go jogging around the lake, cuddle up on the Couch to watch tv, you have found your guy! Catch me if you can! Tank 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
