Name: Annie Sky
This gentle spayed five year old German Shepherd/Pyr mix is very shy...but coming out of her shell at her foster home.Little by little, she is learning that life can be happy and people are kind. She is a beautiful girl and has no fear around the other dogs at her foster home. No aggression...just she simply runs and hides from new people. Annie just wans to be loved, and she has found that in her current home! read more


Name: Bambi
Bambi is a 7 month old Pyr girl who spent her early months in an apartment. She is now in a home with a nice big yard and two adult Pyrs to show her the ropes. Her foster named her Bambi because she is still underweight and "all legs". She looks like a baby deer. This sweet miss is full of curiosity and quickly learning the house rules at her new home. She is anxious for affection and attention and loves to snuggle. read more


Name: Beau
Beau is a neutered 3.5 year old Great Pyrenees male whose country family loved him but had to give him up because he developed a taste for the free range chickens that are part of the family's business. Beau loves children and is happy in the company of other dogs. He knows the commands for "sit" and "shake". Beau is smaller that usual for a male Pyrenees but he has the standard double dew claws and a handsome white coat. He joined TGPR on July 7th and we will have more details about him soon! read more


Name: Bernie
Bernie is a 2-3 year old male Pyr whose foster named him Bernie because his coloring reminded her of a St. Bernard. She rescued him after his owner moved away, leaving this good dog alone in the neighborhood. He is doing very well with her two senior toy Poodles and a lively smaller dog. He loves to run and play in the backyard, but is also content to chill with the family in the house. What a handsome, happy dog! read more


Name: BoJo
Bo (BoJo) came to TGPR after being found near a busy highway with a red gasoline can tied to his collar! He had a young pup with him and seemed to know it was his responsibility to get them both to safety. We think he is about 2-3 years old and a full Pyr. He has a blocky head and the traditional double dew claws on his back legs. We weren't sure if Bo had ever been inside a house. But at his foster's home, he walked right in and proved to be totally well-mannered. Bo is housetrained, great with other dogs, no food aggression, and loves to be brushed. He walks well on a lead and rarely pulls hard. He does have a very deep and resounding bark and "sounds off" if there is a change in his environment, such as a deer walking past. His foster says simply, "Bo is a great dog and deserves a devoted and loving family where he can spoil them and be spoiled all his life." read more


Name: Emmy
Emmy is a pretty spayed female about 6 years old. She came to us because her owner could no longer care for her and wanted her to have a great life. Emmy has lived happily with a large pack of dogs ranging from BIG to teeny. She will follow you anywhere to nibble on a Purina Pupperoni treat. At 104 pounds, Emmy has the traditional "full body" Pyr physique, and a lovely white coat. She enjoys going for leisurely walks and will benefit from a regular "walk date" with her new family. Emmy rides well in the car and seems curious about what adventures lie ahead for her! read more


Name: Max
We love Max! He is a handsome full Pyr male who will be two years old in August 2019. He is housetrained, heartworm negative, and neutered. Max is in that adolescent stage when Pyrs are still filling out and a little awkward. But he is a lovable guy who doesn't know he's large. As you can see in these photos, Max is a big boy. However, he does not try to go over or under a fence. His original family loved Max. They surrendered him to us only because he was bored and barked too much when left alone outside all day. Max is now in a foster home with other Pyrs to play with and he is doing so well! Recently, he went to a dog park and made friends with a Great Dane and a Corgi! Max loves children and even kept his human boy company at the dentist so the boy wouldn't be afraid. He would love to join an active couple or family who will take him for hikes and adventures! read more


Name: Nelson
Nelson was pulled from a kill shelter in the last hours; this big, gorgeous boy is safely fostered near San Antonio, Texas with TGPR now! His foster reports, "Nelson is a sweetheart, he loves to be loved and petted. He wants to be with his person or persons. He is crate trained but I donít put him in his crate at night he is free to roam the house but he mostly sleeps right beside my bed. Nelson is good with other dogs, (not cat tested) but would also be happy as an only dog as long as he gets to spend lots of time with his human. He loves being brushed. I donít think Nelson is done growing / filling out he is still a pup at about 1 1/2 years old." read more


Name: Rocky
Rocky is a stunningly handsome neutered year old boy with a gorgeous black and white coat... almost like a Newfoundland Landseer! Rocky has always been raised with love and in the company of other dogs and children. He is a big kid who loves to run and play with the other Pyrs at his foster family. He is crate trained, but his favorite place to relax is on the family room couch with friends. We would like to place Rocky in a house where he will have a canine friend to play with and humans who enjoy an spending time with their dogs. Rocky just loves being part of things! read more


Name: Sherlock
Sherlock was a St. Patrick's Day puppy, and it doesn't take an brilliant investigator to know that he sure got lucky when TGPR pulled him from the shelter. He looked so sad there and sure, he needs a little TLC. But he is now BFFs with Crusoe at his foster home and loving his new life! The two puppies play and run around the yard all day long. In fact, we think these two boys would be great together if a home wanted two outstanding pups! read more


Name: Shiloh
Shiloh is smaller male Pyr between 12 and 18 months old, who was found so weak from starvation in mid-July that he could hardly walk. However, he is doing really well now that he has food and shelter. He was so happy just to be safe and with caring people. Unfortunately, Shiloh does have heartworms, but TGPR will help him get rid of those very soon. Shiloh is up to date on his vaccines and is fostered in the San Antonio area. read more


Name: Sugar Bear
Sugar Bear is simply the sweetest and most mellow girl! She thinks she is a Pyr, but we aren't sure. This little mixed breed girl hitched a ride to TGPR with a full Pyr who was her BBF. We think she has some German Shepherd in her family tree. Sugar Bear's owner was losing her home and a caring friend of our rescue contacted us to help her. Sugar Bear is approximately 2-3 years old and has made a happy transition to her foster home where she made friends with three other dogs right away. The foster's children love her too. She is a friendly girl who gets along with other dogs and even cats! At a recent meet & greet, Sugar Bear was the dog who helped all the other dogs relax. She had a difficult life before coming to TGPR, but she must have been loved because she has so much love to give back! She knows how to use a doggy door and loves to ride in the car. If you are looking for a companion who walks well on the lead, and gets along with children and other dogs, you couldn't ask for a better choice than gentle Sugar Bear! read more


Name: Titan
Titan is a neutered year-old male Pyr who has lived with a young family (including a toddler, a cat, and a canine buddy) since he was a baby. Sadly, his family split up and felt a new home would be best for this sweet boy. He came to TGPR after a battle with fleas, so his usually full coat is thin right now. But that will soon change! Titan has all the attributes that Pyr-lovers want: a gentle soul, a friendly nature, handsome appearance, and a happy start to his life. Who could ask for more? 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.
