Name: Addie
Addie is a gentle young mother (probably about a year old) who was rescued from a distressing living situation without adequate food or water. As soon as she was safe at our vet's office, she began giving birth. She was so very thin that her condition was not at all apparent. Addie gave birth to two black & white puppies, Patty and Betty, on Jan.7th. Once her babies are weaned, she will be ready for beautiful home of her very own. She has been so sweet, even while providing for her little ones! read more

 

Name: Annie Sky
This gentle spayed five year old German Shepard 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: Bertie
My name is Bertie! I came from somewhere around Houston, and was dropped off at a shelter with my 5 littermates as unwanted. But, you know what? TGPR wanted me! I have received great care from a doctor and am growing so fast. Right now, I am still living with 3 of my litter. I am super friendly, and I love being around people, and I did from the start. In fact, I’d rather be around people than my litter. When I go outside, I like to sniff and explore, but I pay attention to where my human is because – did I mention this – I love to be around people. My foster mom says she can tell that humans were not very nice to my brother and sisters and me, and is really impressed how adventurous and affectionate I am. My tail always wags and if you let me, I’ll give you a ton of puppy kisses. I love stuffed toys, peanut butter kongs and bully sticks. If you want, I will show you them – my mom laughs when I show her because she says I look so proud. I probably would not be living my best life if I were outside all the time – but if you want a super smart, happy, food motivated and people centered little girl who has a lot of Pyr DNA in her body, then you should come talk to me. Because I am so excited to see people and be around people, my new family needs to be sure to take me to training so I can learn how to be polite. I am big, and I am enthusiastic. Bertie – that’s my name (until you change it! Promise I’ll learn it fast). I would love you alot if you would love me alot. read more

 

Name: Betty Boop
Betty Boop is a Pyr mix puppy who was born on January 7th to mama "Addie" who is all white with the traditional double dew claws. Betty is a little smaller than her sister, Patty. She is mostly shiny black with a white patch behind her head and double dew claws on her back legs. Betty Boop will be available for adoption deposits during the week of March 4th. read more

 

Name: Chica
Chica is a young Pyr mix female, probably about 8 months old, who came to us from Uvalde. We think she may be part German Shepherd, but she also has the double dew claws of a Great Pyrenees Her rescuer reports that Chica is very friendly and sweet-natured. She has a calmness that made her seem older, but the vet tells us she is still under a year old! She has just gotten to her TGPR foster on February 9th, so look for more information about her soon. read more

 

Name: Delilah
Delilah is just over two years old and such a beautiful girl. She has the typical Great Pyr looks and a sweet personality to match. Delilah is being fostered in a home with two elementary school children, a Great Pyr male, and a smaller dog. She loves to play out in the yard with the dogs and the kids love to hug her! She will be a happy addition to the family that chooses her! read more

 

Name: Galavant
Galavant is happy, handsome neutered male who will be two years old in January. He was adopted by a young family last February and they love him. But they've realized that a big active dog, even a super-friendly one, is too much for them. At first, Galavant was their only pet and probably bored. He amused himself by digging up the grass, flower beds, and a carpet. He even put a hole in a wood slat fence so that he could put his head through to bark at the Chihuahua next door. Recently, the family added a 4-month old Husky pup. The boys are best buddies and it has made "a huge difference", according to his owner. He loves having a friend, even a much smaller one. Still, the family feels he needs more space than they can offer. He loves their kids and is a real love bug without a mean bone in his body. If you are looking for a great dog who is dog and kiddo friendly (and even cat tolerant) then Galavant would love to meet you! This is a great dog! read more

 

Name: Jesse James
Jesse James and his siblings Joey and JOsie were found abandoned in a crate in the middle of a field with no food or water. They also had mange, which is already being successfully treated. This precious little girl won't last long. She appears to be a full Pyr with fuzzy hair, double dew claws, and a little caramel badger coloring on her ears. read more

 

Name: Jo Jo
Jo Jo (South Texas Area) is a lovely 6 year girl. This sweet, funny girl is also cat friendly. Somehow along the way she lost part of her tail, but she is such a fluff bucket that it just adds to her wiggly cuteness when she wags her short tail to say hello. Jo Jo was abandoned by a family in Uvalde, helped by rescue there, and made the trip to South Padre where she’s being fostered. This sweet girl needs a home to call her own. read more

 

Name: Josie
Josie and her siblings Joey and Jesse James were found abandoned in a crate in the middle of a field with no food or water. They also had mange, which is already being successfully treated. This precious little girl won't last long. She appears to be a full Pyr with fuzzy hair, double dew claws, and a little caramel badger coloring on her ears. read more

 

Name: Lucia
When TGPR saved me, I was very sick. The people who had me before did not care for me like they should, so I came in with lots of parasites – more than my brothers and sisters. It made me throw up, and I just didn’t feel like playing However, TGPR had me go to the doctor and I took lots of medicine and I am all better now. Of my brother and sisters, I am the smallest, at about 22 pounds. My tail goes constantly and my foster mom calls me “wiggle bum.” I am really polite when I take treats and even though at first I am a little reserved with new experiences, I am very curious and I come around very quickly. It would help me a lot ff someone wanted to take me places and help me build my confidence, and would do training with me. If you are kind and gentle and give me treats and toys, I will quickly wiggle up to you and will give you the sweetest little kisses. Do not be fooled by my size – I have the double back dew claws and the heart of a Great Pyrenees. Don’t you want to be my family? read more

 

Name: Max
Max is going to be a big boy! Just over a year old now, he is in a lanky stage, but tall! He is a big sweetheart surrendered to TGPR by his loving owners due to his barking while they are at work. They have a very close neighbor. Max lives with a family with teens and small dog who is his friend. He's at a great age to bond with a new family for the rest of his life. read more

 

Name: Patty
Patty is a Pyr mix puppy who was born on January 7th to mama "Addie" who is all white with the traditional double dew claws. Patty's foster says she is a vocal little miss whose bark is more like a piglet squeal. She is mostly shiny black with bright white markings. Patty will be available for adoption deposits during the week of March 4th. read more

 

Name: Rocky
Rocky is an 9 month old Pyr mix with a gorgeous black and white coat... almost like a Newfoundland Landseer! He and his brother, Oso, who is all white, got lost while their family was on Xmas vacation. Luckily for them, a Good Samaritan took them in and called TGPR. Eventually, the owners decided to surrender the boys to TGPR because they were moving. But it's obvious that these pups have been raised around children and with lots of love. Rocky is very attentive, good with other dogs, and children. Of the two, he is the leader. We will have more information about Rocky and Oso soon! read more

 

Name: Trooper
Trooper is a survivor. He was found as a 5 week old puppy wedged in mudhole in a rainstorm. His rescuers couldn't keep him any longer, so they called TGPR. At seven months, Trooper is now up to date on all his shots, and SO affectionate with his foster family. At first other dogs frightened him, but after a few weeks, he is happily playing with his foster's dogs. She is working patiently to show Trooper that he is safe and has nothing to fear. We expect that in a short time, he will be confident and ready for his own family! read more

 

Name: Zoey
Zoey is a 2-3 year old spayed female who was rescued by an Air Force couple. She is spayed and up to date on all vetting.She has the double dew claws of Great Pyrenees, but we think there is sheepdog or maybe Wolfhound in her family tree. What an adorable face! Zoey is good with other dogs and she is also ok to be by herself. She has never been crated and doesn’t seem to like the idea of them, but she really doesn’t need it---she is house trained and doggie door trained as well. She walks well on a leash with a harness as her family has been working with her on that. Zoey is curious about cats but doesn’t seem to be bothered by them or want to chase them. She has been around young children...even an infant...and does really well with them. Zoey is a happy dog who enjoys walks and will make a wonderful family companion. read more
