Livestock Guardian Dogs
All of the dogs shown on this page are available for adoption through the Texas Great Pyrenees Rescue.
Name: Grizzly HFD
Grizzly was born about August 2017. HE came from a goat farm in OK. He is a Hobby Farm Dog that does good with goats but he likes to be with people also. Grizzly is up and running when he hears a noise he doesn't like but also likes to sit on couch and watch old westerns so he can howl with the coyotes on TV. Grizzly is the best of both worlds... a working and a companion dog. He gets along with other dogs no matter their size. He loves getting attention as much giving it. Hes a kisser and a hugger lol. Grizzly is one happy little boy... He'll share the couch or recliner share if it means cuddle and petting time!! Hes housebroken and enjoys his chew toys. So if you like what you're reading go fill out an adoption application. You never know you and Grizzly could be sharing the next great adventure together! read more
Name: Squirt LGD
Squirt really fits his name. He is a smaller boy and the only survivor of his litter. He is very skittish but follows his fosters around on chores. Squirt is a new intake and learning to trust his fosters slowly. He does approach the whole family for petting, including a 12 year old. We will update his status as we learn more. He is friendly with other dogs of all sizes and is submissive to correction from older dogs. He has been in the pasture is whole life with goats. Questionable around poultry because he will chase, but stops when corrected. Not currently kept with fowl but we will continue his training. Squirt is super playful and puppy-like. He needs to settle down a little more, but it is already clear he will be great candidate for a farm that already has experienced LGDs to lead the way. He shows good guardian behaviors with the goats and sticks with them even when other dogs are out playing. He follows his herd and lays near them as they move about the property. Squirt still needs routine vetting and a neuter and will be brought in as soon as he settles enough to be transported to the vet. read more
Name: Zoe Michelle
Zoe Michelle was born in February of 2017 and is living in the pasture with goats right now with her doggy friends. That is just fine, but she really loves her people best of all. She is friendly and playful. She does not need goats to protect, so if you are looking for a house pet, she would be happy to oblige. She has lived with cats in the past, but a slow introduction would help ensure her continued success with the felines. Zoe is a long legged beauty and cannot wait for her forever home. read more
