Adoptable Dogs

San Antonio and Surrounding Counties

All of the dogs shown on this page are available for adoption through the Texas Great Pyrenees Rescue.

 

Name: Buttercup
Buttercup (MEDICAL HOLD) is a wonderful name for a smaller Pyr mix girl who is the definition of sweetness. This lovely puppy is a happy and affectionate girl. Sadly, she was born with malformations in her hips and spine which will probably require a series of operations beginning with a hip replacement on one side this summer. For that reason, she is not available for adoption at this time. She is going for her second orthopedic consultation in the coming week. Watch for more information as we have it! read more

 

Name: Christian
Christian is a sweet-natured neutered male Pyr about 3 years old. He joined TGPR in early June. He grew up in the country, but loves relaxing inside as well playing with his foster brother (a Pyr) and chasing squirrels outside. He is willing to let other dogs be the leader, and loves to be around his people. Christian's walk is a little unusual because of a congenital malformation in his hip, but it does not seem to bother him at all. He has been seen by two vets, including an orthopedic specialist. They advised that surgery will not be the right solution for him, and his issue can best be treated with regular exercise, weight control, and occasional pain meds. He is a beautiful boy who doesn't know his he has anything unusual at all. read more

 

Name: Gabe
Gabe came to TGPR in late May after a Good Samaritan saw him (and several younger puppies) being thrown out of a truck in garbage bags. TGPR boarded him at a San Antonio area vet to confirm he was healthy, which he is. However, we quickly learned that he was terrified and would not even leave the kennel with the door open to a play yard. He is still very shy, although he wants to trust. He will now run to happily greet people he recognizes. He never shows any aggression, but will back up if uncertain. Gabe is about 9 months old. He has a beautiful gold coat, dark eyes and the double dew claws of a Pyr. He loves treats and will take them from our hands. He has also become pals with another mixed breed dog who befriended Gabe and they love to run together in the play yard. He is still afraid of strangers, but he has come a long way in the past month. We plan to put him with a foster in July so that he can continue his happy "therapy" in a home setting. read more

 

Name: Margot
Medical Hold. Margot is a sweet little Pyr pup of about 4 months who came to TGPR in late January 2019. She was limping when she came to us and it appears that she will need surgery to correct a malformation of her hip socket and femur. The vet tells us this may have been due to a congenital issue or trauma. While we hate to see a problem like that, especially at such a young age, her foster family loves her and plans to adopt her once she has had corrective surgery. read more

 
 

Name: Rosa Abby
Rosa Abby is a 5-6 year old sweetheart with a beautiful tri-color coat. She came to TGPR from the Austin shelter and is spayed, heartworm negative, and dog-friendly. She is being fostered in an apartment and doing well. She loves to go for her walks with the other two dogs in the home. Rosa weighs 100 pounds which is a bit much for her frame. We expect daily exercise will help her lose weight and improve her overall well-being. Her fosters report that she has already won their hearts after just a few days! read more

 

Name: Tony
Tony is a strikingly handsome Pyr mix boy with a shorter hair, white and brindle coat and double dew claws. He is probably under two years old. Tony came to us from a shelter where this muscular boy was friends with everyone. That happy personality has continued at his foster home. We think Tony might be a Pyr/Boxer mix. He weighed about 75 pounds at the shelter, but we expect he will continue to add weight now that he is getting good nutrition. read more
