Name: Arnold Pawmer
This sweet boy was rescued from the shelter just hours before he was scheduled to be euthanized. He gets along well with other dogs of all sizes and would enjoy a playmate. Once he realized he was allowed inside, he loves hanging out in the house. He is not destructive. He is a bit anxious when riding in a vehicle, but that is improving as he realizes he isn't going to be dumped and left to fend for himself. He has a big, blocky Pyr head. He loves attention and can't wait to be in his forever home! read more

 

Name: Balthazar
This handsome boy is great with other dogs and people. He will chase cats. We believe he is a Pyr/Border Collie mix. He is so happy to see you that he smiles! He would love to have another dog to play with. He weighs in at just 61 pounds, but he has a big personality! He has yet to meet any person or dog that he doesn't like. He's good on leash and not destructive in the house. Snatch this guy up before someone else does! read more

 

Name: Bichon of the Tribute Litter
Bichon (DOB: 3/18/2018) is a super sweet girl and protective of her humans. Her favorite thing is food time. She finds her crate to be her safe place and sleeps in it at night and uses it for naps during the day. Plays well with other dogs, but is wary when approached while with one of her human family members. Fill out your application so you can come meet her! read more

 

Name: Darlin
Training Hold: Darlin is about 1 year and 6 months old and such a beautiful girl. She is house and crate trained, but does not like to go into her crate at night. She is working on basic commands and leash manners. She has had several bad experiences with other dogs, so would likely do best as an only dog. Would you give her the time, patience and training she needs to be the best girl? read more

 

Name: Duke S
Meet Duke. This gentle giant (although on the smaller side for a Pyr) is a total charmer just looking for someone to love. His swaggering gait, twinkling eyes and easy going personality will totally melt your heart. He would be a devoted member of your neighborhood watch and also the welcoming committee. He needs daily exercise and enjoys morning walks, dog wrestling and galloping after a ball. He's housebroken, crate trained, good on a leash, dog friendly and cat curious. He needs to have hip replacement surgery, but can go to his forever home on a foster-to-adopt basis while that happens. Do you have room in your heart to give this guy a forever home? read more

 
 

Name: Gaspar
Gaspar is currently on medical hold due to mange and being severely underweight. He is getting the best care and will be available for adoption when he is healthy enough. He is dog and cat friendly, loves people, rides well in a vehicle and has the most gentle soul. More to come as he heals and we get to know him better. read more

 

Name: Godiva
Godiva (Diva for short) is a gorgeous, 55 pound, approximately 3 year old pocket Pyr. She gets along with other dogs of all sizes, cats and LOVES people! She seeks out attention and will nuzzle your hand if you stop petting her. She has yet to get on any furniture, except her dog bed. She is house trained and not destructive. She will go in a kennel, but is not a fan. She walks great on leash and has the cutest little bouncy gate when she trots. She would be great in an apartment or home and would be happy as an only dog, or with others in the house to play with. This cute little girl won't last long! read more

 

Name: Honey Belle
Honey Belle is an almost 2 year old sweetie. She gets along with other dogs, but is still learning how to play and understand body language. She would probably do well as an only dog, or with smaller dogs. She loves people of all ages. She asks for pets, but is not demanding. We believe her skin condition was hormonal and having her spayed seems to have fixed the issue as she is getting fuzzy now! She is finished with heartworm treatment and is ready for her forever home! read more

 

Name: Kasey
This handsome boy is so calm and sweet! He gets along with most other dogs and loves people. He was very thin, but has gained weight and looks and feels much better! He would likely do best in a small pack or as an only dog. He is heartworm positive, but otherwise healthy. He is able to go to his forever home as long as the adopter is willing to care for him during his heartworm treatment. He walks great on a leash and LOVES attention from his people. This big, gorgeous boy is looking forward to his forever family. read more

 

Name: Lance McCullers of Astros Family
Lance McCullers of the Astros Family was surrendered to the shelter with his female mate and 4 puppies. He is a very sweet and laid back boy. He gets along with dogs of all sizes, is a bit cat curious, but is redirected easily and is not aggressive in any way. He is about 18 months old, weighs about 85 pounds, but is very thin. He should be 110 pounds or larger once he gets to his ideal weight. He is on "injured reserve" until we have xrays done to see what is causing him to walk oddly. read more

 

Name: Luna Marie
Training hold. Luna Marie is a timid girl and needs some time to warm up to new people. She is not aggressive, just nervous. She is learning to walk on a leash and is house trained. She had some bad experiences with little dogs, so would likely do better as an only dog or possibly with another large dog with proper introductions. More to come as she settles into her new foster home. read more

 

Name: Magnuss
Magnuss is a silly boy who likes to chew on his toys and play. He is higher energy and would likely do well as someone's jogging buddy. He is working on proper dog interactions as he has a tendency to be a bit forward. His foster said he should have been named "Tigger" as he likes to bounce when he plays. For this reason, he will need an adopter with a 6 foot fence. He is so excited to meet his forever family! Could it be you? 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!! Starting the 8th of January 2019 he will be moved to Kathliene Anderson for private training in the home 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

 

Name: Momma June
Momma June is a sweet, 8 year old girl that would love to have another large dog to play with. Don't let her age fool you, she loves to run and romp with other big dogs. She gets along with dogs of all sizes. She is cat friendly and loves people, although a little shy at first. She has seasonal allergies that caused some hair loss, but her coat is growing back and she is doing great. She is great on leash, completely house trained and not destructive at all. This girl still has a lot of love to give. Could you be her forever family? read more

 
 

Name: Sophia Rose
This beautiful girl was found wandering and no one claimed her. We don't understand how anyone would let her go, but she is looking for her forever home. More to come as we get to know her better. read more

 

Name: Tobias
Tobias (Toby) is a sweet 2 year old Pyr/Lab mix. He gets along with other dogs, cats and even donkeys and horses. He is very friendly to people and children. 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 is working on 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: Winter
Winter was found in the middle of a road by a good samaritan who took her in and contacted TGPR. Much to everyone's surprise, Winter gave birth to puppies, "Winter Wonderland" litter on New Year's Day. Winter is approximately 18 months old, and is such a sweet girl. She has double dews on both back legs, but is much smaller than most GPs her age. She is cat friendly, leash trained, housebroken and has been spending her days and nights tending to her babies. More to come as we get to know her better. read more

 

Name: Zain
Zain is an approximately 8 week old little boy with the cutest face! He loves people, and especially kids! His badger markings make him very handsome. He will be ready to go to his forever home on January 28, 2020. read more

 

Name: Zander
Zander was adopted as a puppy (twice) and just recently returned again due to his adopter's fiance having allergies. He is a laid back guy, but can be dog selective. He walks very well on a leash, is house trained and knows basic commands. He would do well as an only dog or with another large dog, but will need proper introductions. He is not a fan of small or dark colored dogs. He is a big, handsome boy and really wants to be with his forever (for real) family. read more

Discipline isn't about showing a dog who's boss; it's about taking responsibility for a living creature you have brought into your world.
