Name: Adonis
Adonis was a stray and is an approximately 18 month old Great Pyrenees Mix. He loves being inside with family, he has a chilled personality, gets along with dogs, and cats, and he truly prefers to be at your side. He was in bad shape when found, he needs TLC and groceries. A healthy weight for him will probably be around 120-130lbs. He will be neutered before going to his forever home. If you are looking for a calm and sweet boy, look no further. read more

 

Name: Amino
Finding Ami (aka Amino)...this sweet gal was left behind after her owners moved. Not much is known about her history but she was finally picked up by TGPR and is on her road to happily ever after. She is on the older side, best guess is around 3-4 years old, weighs about 85 pounds, a Pyr-Anatolian cross, with an adorably short but thick, fluffy coat. She is potty trained, untested in the kennel, but her fosters are thinking she does not need one. She is stiff at times so does not seem to have the need to jump on furniture or people, but she will hop and prance to show her delight and excitement when you come around. Ami needs proper and slow introductions to other dogs and her fosters think she would do best in a quieter home with no children or at least older ones and she would also be perfectly happy as an only dog. She is tolerant of her foster fur-siblings but is not interested in playing or engaging them; no aggression and she will follow them around the yard, she just isn't very doggy-social. She is indifferent to the cat but they also just give each other space. Ami is perfectly happy hanging with her humans inside or out. This sweet little lady is just looking for that special family to show her the love she has been lacking for a long time now. read more

 

Name: Arley
Arley has been kept outside in someone's back yard for her entire life, so she is learning how to be an indoor dog. She is doing very well on house and crate training. She loves to play with other dogs and is a very sweet girl. read more

 

Name: Avery
Avery is an approximately 8 week old Pyr mix puppy. She came to us very skinny and with a fractured leg that healed. We are checking to see if surgery is an option for her. She is so very sweet and LOVES to cuddle with her people! She is on medical hold for now. read more

 

Name: Bailey Lee
Bailey is a neutered, approximately 2 year old boy with some cream markings on his head, and it looks like he has eyeliner! He has a shorter coat than most pyrs, we believe that he is mixed with golden retriever. He weighs about 75 pounds, and the vet recommended he stay at that weight, due to some hip pain seen when he first came to us. He is on cosequin and it seems to be working very well for him, for he enjoys his walks and likes to run around the house. He is a cuddle bug, that will enjoy being with you wherever you go. Bailey is a shy pup that is unsure of new people at first, but once he gets past the initial meet, he will forever be your friend. He is good with cats, mostly ignoring them, occasionally will want to play. He enjoys playing with other dogs, but would be happy as an only dog as well. He can be trusted out of his kennel (although he is kennel trained) while at work, for he is housebroken, and stays out of trouble. He rides well in the car and is ready for his forever family! read more

 

Name: Beauregard
Hi my name is Beaux. I am a big, sweet, Cajun gentleman who is looking for a furever home. Like my buddy, Beula, I was supposed to be working the sheep, but when I ran off, since I prefer hamburgers and cuddles, my Owner chained me up, on a 3 foot chain, to live in a dirt hole for years with very little food. I need to gain about 30 pounds. My foster family discovered me and convinced the owner that they could find me a home better suited for me, so now starts my new chapter as a Texan! I am around 3 years old and am a little skiddish at first. I’m afraid of getting hurt again, but I warm up quickly when I know you will treat me well. My foster mom and I share lots of tender moments with her petting my big head and putting her face right by my face. I will even push my head under her hand when she’s typing to get extra love. When I am healthy again, I will be an impressive 100+ pound dog. I promise to protect my Owners with my large presence, but at the end of the day, I really just want to nap and give and receive love. I am quickly gaining weight and on the road to health. I did test positive for heartworms, but thanks to TGPR, I am going to get well. I am a very chill dog. Occasionally, I like to play with my fellow rescue, Beula. I bound around like an awkward pup with my lanky legs. At my foster home, I stay outside mostly during the day, but do well in a kennel at night. I am OK outside, but really just want to be wherever the humans are. I am doing very well with leash training. I am a little nervous to get in the car, but once I’m in, I quickly lay down. Since I like to explore, I need a fence, but please not a chain! I am looking forward to living my best dog life, napping in the sun, getting good food, maybe playing with another dog, and giving and receiving lots of love. read more

 

Name: Beula
Hi, my name is Beula, or Beu-la-la, or Beula-ful, as my Foster mom calls me, because she says I am beautiful inside and out! I am a Cajun girl and grew up on land. I was supposed to be working the sheep, but when I ran off, because I prefer love and cuddles, my former Owner put me on a 3 foot chain for years, where I lived in a dirt hole, didn’t get to eat a whole lot, and even had puppies. My foster family discovered me and convinced the owner that they could find me a home better suited for me, so now starts my new chapter as a Texan! I am around 3 years old, have the energy and joy of a pup, and am a soft, fluffy girl. Sometimes I will push my head under my foster mom’s hand when she’s typing to get extra love. Anytime someone comes near me, I roll onto my back for belly rubs. I did test positive for tummy worms and heartworms, but thanks to TGPR, I am going to get well. I could probably gain 5 pounds or so, but I am known as a ‘Pocket-Pyr;’ I am a perfect cuddle size and will probably cap out around 50 lbs. Everyone says how cute I am and what a great personality I have. I went to the vet for the first time and handled it like a champ. At my foster home, I live outside, as my foster folks have 3 other dogs and want to introduce us slowly. I do get to come in at night in the laundry room, since I am bred to ‘work’ and might bark if I see a critter. I have been doing well with my bathroom habits and waiting ‘to go’ until I’m outside the next morning. We are working on leash training. I’m a quick learner, and it shouldn’t take much for me to figure out the leash thing. I hop right into my foster mom’s car and love a good joyride in the car. I just look out the window, smiling the whole time. Since I like to explore, I need a fence, but please not a chain! I am looking forward to living my best dog life, basking in the sun, getting good food, maybe playing with another dog and giving and receiving lots of love! read more

 

Name: Big Dog Buddy
Buddy was found wandering and had been shot in the leg. The shot shattered his patella, so he will be on medical hold for a while to see if we can salvage the leg or if it will have to be amputated. read more

 

Name: Chuffy
Chuffy (combination of cute and fluffy) was an indoor dog the first 6 months of his life, but when a family member's asthma started acting up, he was forced to live outside. He seems to enjoy being outside, but also enjoys the nice cool A/C in the house. He is working on not jumping on people when he meets them, as well as leash manners. He loves to play with other dogs and chase his frisbee around the yard. He weighs in at about 93 pounds right now and may fill out a bit more. He seems to have a natural instinct to protect his house and property and will need a more experienced adopter as well as a home with older or no children. read more

 

Name: Crew
Crew has a condition called Cerebellar Hypoplasia. It happens when the cerebellum doesn't develop fully and it causes deficits in balance and coordination, but he isn't in any pain. He can live a normal, healthy life, though a bit clumsy. ;-) He came in with her sister, Kennedy. They are pretty bonded to each other, but they do not have to be adopted together. However, the adopter will need to have another dog in the home to interact with. He is learning that people aren't scary and leashes won't eat him. A kennel is his safe space and he is working on house training. He weighed 47 pounds on 6/22/2020. He will be ready to go to his forever family on July 2nd. read more

 

Name: Freja
Freja is the mom of the Ninjago Litter. She is very underweight at 60 pounds and has some hair loss from fleas and motherhood. She is also heartworm positive, but treatment has started for that. She is a bit shy at first, but warms up quickly and is very sweet. More to come as we get to know her better. read more

 

Name: Gidget
Gidget was adopted a couple of years ago and recently returned because she is an escape artist. You see, her owner passed away, and now she escapes the yard when left outside unattended. She is a very sweet girl and is on the smaller side at about 70 pounds. She is good with other dogs and loves kids of all ages. She walks well on a leash and rides well in a car. She is very affectionate and will give you her mighty Pyr paw if she thinks she needs more pets. Check out her "smile" in one of the pictures. She does not get on the furniture and is trustworthy being left in the house by herself. She is ready for her forever home! read more

 

Name: Gypsy Love
Gypsy Love was found dragging a rope that had been chewed through. She was very skinny and covered in fleas. Her weight coming in was 64 pounds, but she should be around 85 pounds at her ideal weight. She is very sweet and gets along well with other dogs. She rides well in a car and walks well on a leash. She tested light heartworm positive and has started antibiotics as the first step in treating that. She has been spayed, is gaining weight and loves pets. She is ready for her forever family. read more

 

Name: Jumpin' Jay of Ninjago Litter
Jumpin' Jay has a Pyr mom and we think a Lab dad. He is very sweet, but a bit more reserved than his brother, Master Wu. He enjoys posing for the camera and wrestling with his brother. We think he is going to be a very loyal, best friend once he has some confidence and finds his forever family. He will be available to go to his forever home on July 12th. read more

 

Name: Kennedy
Kennedy has a condition called Cerebellar Hypoplasia. It happens when the cerebellum doesn't develop fully and it causes deficits in balance and coordination, but she isn't in any pain. She can live a normal, healthy life, though a bit clumsy. ;-) She came in with her brother, Crew. They are pretty bonded to each other, but they do not have to be adopted together.

Name: Master Wu of Ninjago Litter
Master Wu has a Pyr mom and we're guessing a Lab dad. He is very outgoing and playful, yet sweet and lovey. He plays hard and sleeps hard. He likes to give kisses and receive as many pets as possible. He also enjoys playing in the water and wrestling with his brother. He weighs about 22 pounds at 13 weeks old and will be ready for his forever home on July 12th. read more

Name: Meeker aka Bingo
HI!! I go by Bingo now but I was originally adopted as Meeker. I was born in 2017 and have been living with a nice family in the woodlands. I am a big active boy that doesn't always remember my boundaries. I would do best with a family of older children, and someone who can help me understand who is in charge. I get along ok with other dogs but like to take those introductions slow. If you work with me, I am a BIG love bug, weighing over 100 pounds at 18 mos!! read more

 

Name: Mila
Mila was found running stray and in heat with no collar and underweight. She weighs just under 70 pounds and will probably be around 80-90 at her ideal weight. She is a definite people dog and loves attention. She is nervous in cars and not a fan of thunderstorms. She gets along with dogs of all sizes and is cat friendly. She walks well on a leash and is learning about the good things in life like toys and bones to chew on. She will be ready for her forever home after she is spayed. read more

 

Name: Millie Mae
Millie Mae is a bouncy, happy, active young adult. She absolutely loves people, and will soak up pets, belly rubs, and snuggles. She still jumps for joy when greeting people - as a tall and lanky 75# dog, her enthusiasm can be a hazard to children and seniors. A large overbite gives her a giant beaming smile. When not basking in attention or sleeping, she trots around exploring or entertains herself playing. Millie is a country girl, having spent most of her life outdoors in a fenced yard or chicken run. She was not potty trained as a puppy, but has not had any accidents in the small portion of our house we have allowed her into. We think she can learn house manners with patience and training - and know she would be delighted to spend more time with people. Her first family had fowl, doves and rabbits. We believe Millie is safe with poultry and has expressed only curiosity about our neighbor's cows and horses. She is not a livestock guardian, but her big, deep bark alerts to approaching cars and people. We have started teaching Millie basic commands, and she is a fast learner. She has walked our property well on a long retractable leash, and has been manageable on a short leash during trips to town. We are still working on resource guarding. Millie should have a family of adults and children mature enough to not interrupt her eating or take toys and treats from her. She may be best as an only dog, or with a family familiar with resource guarding. She has aggressively protected food, toys, territory, and people's attention from other dogs. Most of her aggression has been directed at our female; she may have less conflict with males. Without these triggers, she gets along with our dogs and enjoys roughhousing and chasing. She is still learning the rules of doggy play, and as a gangly active youngster, she can be obnoxious to mature dogs. Millie had skin allergies (now under control) and we are trying to identify the cause. She is ready and waiting for her forever home. read more

He has the short coat of a Lab, but is the size of a Pyr (~120 pounds). He is on medical hold until we figure out why he is walking strangely. read more

 

Name: Treigean
Treigean is a very calm senior girl. She had way too many litters of puppies in her lifetime, but those days are behind her. She is very smart and figured out the dog door quickly. She will do just about anything for a meaty treat (no veggies or french fries for her!). She knows "sit" and other basic commands. She's great with kids, other dogs and cats. She likes ear rubs and loving, but is not demanding. If you're looking for a calm, quiet senior that's ready to be pampered in her golden years, Treigean is the one for you. read more

 

Name: Tucker Tanner
Tucker is a precious 3 month old Pyr mix puppy who was found all by himself. The finder was unable to locate his owner and could not keep him, so he came to TGPR.
