Name: Absinthe (aka Toot)
Absinthe - aka Abbi - is a sweet, determined, wonderful girl. Shy and fearful at first, she has really warmed up.

Her unique coloring and her wonderful disposition makes her one of a kind. She will be a lot of fun! read more


Name: Alula
Alula and her sister Ayla were surrendered to a shelter due to financial difficulty. Both girls had mange and intestinal parasites and are under weight. TGPR has had them vetted and they are well on their way to recovery! Sweet and a little shy, with no idea what to do with a leash, Alula is quick to warm up, and will make a WONDERFUL companion dog. She has mostly been an outside dog, but will likely adjust to the good life (and air conditioning) in no time! She's a gorgeous girl! Get your app in... she won't be with us long! read more

Name: Angel Baby
My name is Angel and I am the sweetest dog you will ever meet! I love children, other dogs and I leave cats alone. I was born in 2012, but I still have bursts of playfulness. Aside from those bursts, I am a very chill girl who wants to be around my people. I'm a shorter Pyr, but my weight doesn't reflect that... I'm currently around 100 pounds; I need to lose a little weight in order to be more agile on my feet. I will be a great companion for someone who is looking for a sweet, calm dog. Could that be you? read more


Name: AnnaBelle
Ms. AnnaBelle was found as a stray, wandering around, EXTREMELY thin and in need of a good brushing. She is a very sweet girl, who will need some work on her people skills - she wants to climb everyone for HUGE HUGS! Which isn't always welcome. Foster is going to work on that jumping habit, and get some meat on her bones. She'll be available for adoption after 6/05 - once she's seen our vet and got a clean bill of health. She has been tested with chickens and she was really good! Just ignored them. read more


Name: Bacon
Have you EVER seen anything so CUTE?? Bacon is a little goober. We were told he was the runt of the litter, but he seems to be holding his own. He's often found snoozing with his cute little tongue sticking out. Nicknamed "sir grunts a lot" as he makes such adorable noise. He came in with sister Pork Chop and mom Bessie. We will accept deposit hold starting 7/02 and he will be ready to go to his forever home on 7/16. read more

I am a sweet and friendly guy and I get along with other dogs, cats and kids that are 8 years old and up- Iíve never been around a baby before. Iím not much on car rides but I donít mind riding in the back seat in the floor board where I feel secure and safe-- Iím funny that way! I had a wonderful family but they were having some financial trouble and wanted me to be loved and cared for. I donít have formal training but my family was utilizing me as a service dog because I would alert my dad when my mom was feeling ill and my dad had PTSDó- so I might do great if someone wanted to do formal training with me! I would love to have a wonderful family that wants to love me as much as I love them! read more


Name: Bebe Girl
Hello my name is Bebe Girl! I was born approx 6/14/2017. I was found in a culvert when I was 4 months old.

Sure would love to find a family of my own!! I am currently being fostered in Waco read more


Name: Bella Luce
Hello! I am Bella Luce! From the Italian words meaning "beautiful light". I was born 4/9/2014. Yep that is my birthday! My duty has been to be a constant companion to an Autistic boy since I was 6 months old. My family has had life changes so I am now looking for a new home in hopes of using my gifts for another human that needs one on one attention.

If you are interested in adoption, please fill out an application at TXPYRS.ORG. Looking forward to meeting you! Bella read more


Name: Bessie
Ms. Bessie has come to us, surrendered by her owner. They had to move unexpectedly and couldn't find a rental friendly to large dogs. She was surrendered with her boyfriend Grizzly, and two young puppies, Bacon and Pork Chop. Once the puppies are fully weaned and she has been spayed, she will be ready to find her forever home! She's a sweet girl, who needs a little help with socializing. Good with dogs, but warms up slowly to new people. She's just BEAUTIFUL! read more

Name: Bo Tas
I'm brand new to TGPR - more to come soon!!! read more


Name: Britney
Miss Brittany was born approx Feb 2016. She is hard to get a good photo of because she is so wiggly. This honorary pyr is the sweetest, most loving dog with a kick of spirit. She is the dog that is the first one to rush through the doggie door to say hi to you when you come home from work, she has a constant smile on her face that is difficult not to grin along with, and she is constantly licking on my five-year-old daughter. This dog but has quickly learned how to use a doggie door and has been potty trained. She is one smart cookie and simply learned by watching the other dogs in the house. I am a very nice girl that is house trained, completely vetted and ready for a happy life with a new family. If you like Josie too, we would love to be together. After our dad died, we were alone for so long and we were all we had. Would be nice to stay together....if you had room for two sweet girls. read more


Name: Casper
Hi everyone! My name is Casper,and Iím sure glad to meet ya! Iím a 6 year old Pyr/Malamute mix guy, who you would swear is a youngíun! At least 2 or 3! Everyone I meet says they think Iím young! I have a wonderful soft coat, and my smile just makes people happy! I came from a great loving person, but sadly they have health issues,and contacted this great rescue so I can find a new furever home with a loving furever family! Even though Iíve got the Great Pyrenees in me, I know how to sit, rollover, stay, and lie down! Iím such a smart fellah! I also know how to tell you when I need to go outside, Iím hungry, or thirsty. I love to take long walks (Iím great on the leash), and LOVE CAR RIDES!!! I also love water, thereís nothing more fun than playing in water: I guess itís the puppy in me! I hope my furever family will let me on the furniture: I love to stretch out on the couch. And I guess you could call me a picky eater; I like cottage cheese and sliced cheddar in with my food, and Iím definitely a magician when bacon is around - I can make it disappear! Iím ok with certain other pups; some male dogs do irritate me. I like kids, and Iím ok with cats: I donít understand it; all I want is to be their friend and they get mad at me! Right now, I can keep up with my foster sister, and sheís just a puppy! We play, run after each other, and wrestle. Itís great to be young at heart! I have to learn that the counter is really not the place to get on, and I get so happy when you get home, I jump on you. And who likes thunder? When I hear it, I have to tell it to go awayÖ sometimes it actually works! But we are working on those things. I love to make you happy. I get so sad when Iím told no, or Iíve been bad. I would prefer to sleep in the room you sleep in; I just want to make sure Iím not alone. If you let me, I may even try to sneak up there! So if you would like an immature adult as your furever companion, to run and play like a puppy, then Iím here for you! Thanks for looking! read more


Name: Clover
Just look at that face! This girl is snuggly, and lovely and FULL of personality! She's very dog social, good with people of all sizes. Loves napping with her people, and watching you cook. She was found as a stray, and her family never came for her, so TGPR offered to help find her a forever home. She's just about perfect! She had to have knee surgery, and is right as rain now! All healed up. This girl is a ROCKSTAR! read more


Name: Cody
Hi! My name is Cody! I'm a sweet, loveable guy who just had a run of back luck. My brother Maxwell and I had it pretty good... you can see we didn't miss any meals! Our new vet doesn't think it's "thyroid", whatever that means. A couple of months ago, our mom got sick and passed away. We are pretty sad about it, but her daughter was amazing and brought us home with her. She can't keep us forever, but wanted to be sure we got good "forever" homes with families who understand the needs of bigger guys like us. If you think a big, fluffy love-bug might be missing from your life, please fill out the application! We'd love to meet you! P.S. as a bonus, my adoption fee is only $250! read more


Name: Cooper
New to TGPR - stay tuned! read more


Name: Dasha
Dasha is a lovely younger female Pyr whose name means "God's gift". TGPR rescue friends spotted her at a high kill shelter in Brownsville and gave us a call. She fought through a nasty respiratory infection and is now spayed and doing great! Dasha is a happy girl who gets along with other dogs. You can see what a sweetheart she is by looking at her photos! read more


Name: DC
DC is brand new to the program. He is a Great Pyrenees/Collie mix, weighing in at 53 pounds. This guy is estimated to be around 6 years old. He is good with kids! He is a very chill guy who likes to lay around on the floor. More to come as we get to know him! read more


Name: Delilah
Delilah is a precious young Pyr female who is at that stage where she is still very much a puppy, with lots of joyful energy. She is great with dogs, cats, and children, and will make a wonderful family companion with just a bit of continued training. We've just had her a short time, but her foster reports that she is doing very well! read more


Name: Felix
Felix is brand new to TGPR. He is on medical hold. More updates soon! read more


Name: Fern
Fern is a super sweet girl, who just loves to snuggle. Good with kids and other dogs, she is just hanging out, enjoying the good life, while waiting for her forever home. She would do best with another doggy friend in the home to help with her confidence and for fun play. She does have some seasonal, environmental allergies (who doesn't?!). This girl is really something special! read more


Name: Frankie 2
(ADOPTION PENDING A.S.) Frankie is the most mellow little girl. Good with other dogs and children of all ages. She's a lover, napper, snuggler! A favorite with her foster family. read more


Name: Grizzly
Grizzly was born about August 2017. HE came from a goat farm in OK and still very much wants to be with his peeps. This is a calm puppy just happy to hang on the farm. More to come as we evaluate his skill sets read more


Name: Hal
Hal is the sweetest boy even though he has been through some tough times. He was found walking the streets of San Antonio, overheated, malnourished, and flea infested. He was taken to the shelter and due to overcrowding was scheduled to be euthanized. Luckily a team of volunteers were able to tag and rescue him and place Hal in foster care. He is estimated to be around 6 years old. He has such a calm demeanor that even the very dominant male at his foster home accepted him right away. The shelter guessed he might have Pyr in him, but we think it's a small part...possibly a blend with Aussie and Anatolian? Right now, his coat is in sad shape, but it will be a beautiful brown, with gray markings as he heals. He is very friendly with other dogs and cats, and children. Hal has a stunning pair of eyes, one blue and one brown, and will remain on the smaller side weighing under 75 pounds. Please submit an application and come meet him! read more


Name: Heath
Wow! Check out HEATH! Isn't he one of the spunkiest young puppies you ever saw? It's hard to remember that in February, he was found in a ditch, hairless, and suffering from starvation and mange. After two months with a loving TGPR country family, he is strong, happy, and loves to play with the big dogs at his home. He has even learned to get along with free range chickens! Who wouldn't want to brighten their world with such a great Pyrenees pup! read more


Name: Indie
MEDICAL HOLD My name is Indie and I am a little squirt! Turns out I have a little medical issue that TGPR is really working hard to cure!! The Doctors don't know why but my kidneys aren't working properly. While things are improving and I feel a LOT better, I am not out of the woods yet. My foster says that despite my health issues I am playful loving and sweet. Do you think you could take me on? I promise I am a good good girl. read more


Name: Isabel
Isabel is a sweet, but nervous girl. She takes a few minutes to adjust to new people. Good with kids, other dogs and cats. She seems to be house trained as well. She's enjoying the good life, sleeping upside down on the couch and loving the snuggles. New to TGPR in late May, 2018, we are getting to know her and will post more as we learn! read more


Name: Jagger
Meet Jagger! This boy is ADORABLE! He's good with kids, big and small, and good with small dogs. He will need proper introduction to bigger dogs, as he's a little insecure when he's outweighed. He lives in the vicinity of a cat, but hasn't been face to face with him, so we can't say for sure how he would do. Jagger is mellow, but mildly fearful of loud noises (fireworks are scary!). If you'd like to meet Jagger, get your app in! He's about an hour from Austin. read more


Name: Jeeves
This beautiful boy was born approx 8/1/2016 and came to us quite suddenly when his owner surrendered he and 30 other dogs to a shelter. He is friendly and loves playing with other dogs. He enjoys snuggles and belly rubs!! He follows the foster's cat around, trying to understand what the strange creature is. He sometimes misunderstands the cat's quick movements for a game of chase, but he is gentle! Jeeves is attending a five week obedience training to learn all the basic commands and manners, that he never learned in his prior home. He will be available around the middle of June. read more


Name: Jolene
Meet Jolene! According to her foster, she's perfect! Good with kids and other dogs, she's pretty wonderful. Loving and easy, she's just about PYRfect! read more


Name: Juniper
I was found as a stray and these nice folks at TGPR helped me out with removing a large tumor. I'm better now and gaining weight. I am a super mellow gal who enjoys taking naps with my friend the cat on a nice shady porch or in the house by your feet. I really enjoy being a house pet. read more


Name: Juno
Doesn't Juno have the best face?? Born 2016, her original owner moved into an apartment and couldn't take her along. She was moved to a friend's home, where she's done well. Unfortunately, she is proving too much for an elderly member of the family and is now looking for her forever family. She's good with kids, although she loves to jump up for hugs, so bigger kiddos will be better. She loves to play, higher energy for a Pyrenees, so she'd do well as a hiking buddy. Working on obedience training now, and leash manners still need work, but she's smart and willing, so that should go smoothly. This girl has never met a dog she didn't love. She is just lovely! And is ready to get started on the next chapter in life. read more


Name: KATO
Kato is a people-friendly, dog-friendly, and cat-friendly "gentle giant" whose family was not able take him when they moved out of state. He loves attention--especially belly rubs, but any kind of petting and loving--which he would much rather have than the finest food. If you stop too soon, he will reach out to you with a giant paw and encourage you to continue. He is about 6-7 years old, neutered, chipped, and up to date on all shots and his ProHeart6 injection. Kato has a beautiful light and darker tan coat, and he has the classic Pyr double dew claws. More important, Kato is a lovely animal being who needs a loving family and will surely be a loving companion. Kato apparently has spent most of his life outside, though he would love to spend most of his time inside. We don't know if he is totally house-trained, but after being inside for several hours he always answered nature's calls outdoors. Kato is a 124-pound Gentle Giant who nuzzles our cat and is gentle with everyone, though he occasionally barks at people unexpectedly walking in the alley behind his house. He and his yard mate, a high energy black Labrakita, get along well. When he's not being petted Kato enjoys lying in the sun watching the birds and squirrels. read more


Name: Lady Bird HFD
Hi, I'm Ladybird! I'm the "pyrfect" little lady. I'm pretty small for a Pyr--70 lbs. I'm about 2 years old and looking for my place in the world. I'm a little reserved after the life I've had so far. My first owners got me for the sole purpose of using me to have puppies. Once my puppies were old enough to sell, I was owner surrendered to the local shelter along with two of my puppies. My foster mom and dad really love me, and they are showing me how much fun belly rubs are. I'm learning that not all people are bad. My foster dad calls me "Smiley" because I smile when I'm happy. I would describe myself as a "country" dog. I'm not quite sure if I'm an LGD yet, but I don't like it in the house either (I've never been in one, so I'm not sure about it yet!) I love being outside and observing my surroundings. My foster mom calls me the perfect lady because I don't mess with anyone or anything, and I'm absolutely no trouble at all. Even the vet was impressed with how well-behaved I am, and he had to stick me with a few needles for my shots! I ALWAYS follow the rules. I never chase cats or other animals. I love being a quiet shadow for my fosters as I get to know that people are good, and I am safe. read more


Name: Lincoln
Lincoln is brand new to our program and is a very sweet boy! He knows basic commands, but needs someone to continue to work on him for consistency. More to come as his foster gets to know him! read more


Name: Logan
Logan is a handsome and affectionate 2-year old boy who was found as a stray. We believe he may be a Pyr/Golden Retriever mix because of the gorgeous golden highlights in his fur. Logan has been a perfect dog at two foster homes: one where he lived with two adults and a senior Pyr female and his current home which is a family with four older children. He is a big boy who currently weighs 115 lbs. Like many Pyrs, he can be a bit shy at first. It takes him a little while to warm up to new people, which is common for Pyrs. He does very well in public and has been patient with strangers. Logan loves going for walks and is very good on the leash. He has not shown any food aggression. He gets along really well with female dogs (and most males) and loves to play. He is a little TOO curious about cats! He LOVES to be brushed, does very well with baths, and also loves chasing a ball around! In short, Logan is a big, lovable, goofy boy who will be an awesome lifetime companion for the right adopter! We are looking for a home with older children rather than toddlers. read more


Name: Lola Falanna
I came to TGPR immediately pregnant and shortly after my arrival, I delivered 12 healthy puppies! All of my pups have found their forever families and home. Now its my turn since I have fulfilled my mommy duties. I am is up to date on all my vaccinations and is spayed. The vet discovered I was heartworm positive when I went in to be spayed. That was a yucky and sad time for me I couldnt play and had to rest all the time. I finished my Heartworm treatment and feel like my self again and doing great. I am potty trained and I come in and out of my crate as I please. Im not fond of car rides ( I slobber a alot... have extra towels and maybe a rain coat on I'll slobber on you too! lol) but I love going for walks. I get along with all my foster brothers and sisters even Zoey the yappy yorkie. I am pretty chill and my foster mama tells me I make a pretty rug.. whatever that means. Oh one more thing just so you know I luv peanut butter sandwiches. I just want my own family and home just like my babies have and you want a fur kid so lets give this adoption thing a whirl! read more


Name: Luther
Luther is a special male Pyr who has the sweetest spirit, even though his backbone is curved in a way that impacts his mobility to some degree. He was brought to TGPR's attention by two caring sisters, who refused to allow him to be left to die at their local shelter. Luther's case has been reviewed by canine orthopedic and neurological specialists. It appears his "humped back" is congenital. His hips are in great condition, but his overall life expectancy will probably be limited. We have placed him in the home of a wonderful foster whose family already loves him and where he will probably remain. He definitely has a beautiful soul that inspires all of us! read more


Name: Maggie Ann
Hi, I'm Maggie! I was born 3/18/2018. A really nice lady found me and called TGPR to help find me a home. I am what they call "an independent and sassy pup"... whatever that means! I have the cutest mask markings on my face and a couple of brown spots on my heinie. I have double dew claws on one back foot and a sweet disposition. I LOVE to play hard, but then I CRASH hard. What can I say - I'm still a baby! I really enjoy playing, running and jumping with the other dogs in my foster home. I'm working real hard on potty training and have learned to ring the bell to open the door, but I'll need you to work with me a bit more until I'm a master at going potty outside. I'm looking for that special person - could you be him/her? Come meet me!!! read more


Name: Maude
Maude and her brother Tank recently came to TGPR after being rescued by a Good Samaritan out in the country. They were undernourished and needed TLC. But both are doing well now! Even though she needed to gain weight, Maude turned her nose up at puppy food, preferring "big dog" food with an egg on top, thank you very much! She thinks she is a young diva, and bosses around the big dogs at her foster home. In one of the photos, you can see her lounging with her TGPR friend, Heath, who was once just as little as Maude. This little sweetheart is spunky and ready for her own home! She is crate trained and if she needs to "go" she lets you know with a big bark! read more


Name: Maxwell
Hi guys! My name is Maxwell. My brother Cody and I had a good life in north Texas, but then our mom got sick and passed away. We are pretty broken up about it. Her amazing daughter came and got us, though, and brought us home with her. She was really worried we would end up in a bad, scary shelter! We are so grateful to her for that. We are easy going, loveable, fluffy guys who are looking for a home where we can lay around, maybe play a little, and go for walks. As you can tell, we didn't miss any meals, and need a bit of a diet. Our doctor doesn't think it's "thyroid", whatever that means. I think that's a good thing? Anyway, if you are looking for a laid back companion (or two?), all you need to do is fill out the application and someone will be in touch! P.S. My adoption fee is only $250! read more


Name: Millie
My owner has to work away from home and he can no longer take care of me and asked TGPR if we could help and we said yes I am in a new home and once I settle in my foster will update how things are going I will be on a 10 day hold until May 8th More to come as I settle in UPDATE from the Foster, I am a total sweetheart, I love people, and love children, I am crate trained, still working on being housebroken, I love my walks and I love being with people I would like to be with an active family and a big yard to run and play read more


Name: Monroe
Monroe is such a happy big guy with the sweetest face, including longer ears that may reveal a Hound Dog in his lineage (or maybe a Bassett Hound!) He is a real sweetheart who is getting along great with the dogs and grandchildren at his foster's home. He even likes to stroll over to visit the neighbor's white cows on the other side of his fenced yard. His foster says the cows think he is one of them! Monroe will be a terrific friendly addition to any family. We think he is about 5 years old, so he is past the "puppy stage" and very mellow. read more


Name: Myla
Myla is a young Pyr female (about a yar old) who was picked up as a stray, undernourished, flea-bitten, and afraid. Several volunteers visited her and reported that her sweet nature was evident in spite of her sad circumstances. She is now happily playing with the two male dogs at her foster home and getting the care she needs to regain her strength. Such a darling girl! read more


Name: Naomi
Ms. Naomi is a shy, loving lady. She came to us with a litter of 6 month old puppies. It appears they have been on their own for quite some time. She's a very sweet girl, who needs someone to show her just how good the home life can be. If that's you, get your application in! She will be available after she is spayed. read more


Name: Noah
Meet Noah! He came in with his siblings and his mom from a shelter. We don't think he's spent much time around people, but he's super interested in becoming a snuggle bug. He was great for his first bath and let us trim his nails with no fuss! He is working on learning just how very awesome it is to have a people family. This guy is going to be great! (and look at those ears!!!) read more


Name: Nova
Just look at this face!! This girl is FLASHY! She came to us from a shelter with her mom and siblings. We get the impression that they haven't been handled much. This girl is a bit nervous being handled and needs someone patient and calm to help her learn to trust. We suggest older kids only, who understand that she's been through a lot. Its obvious to us that she wants to trust, but it will take time and kindness. read more


Name: Nutmeg
Nutmeg was found as a stray wandering the countryside, and turned over to a shelter. Looking at this girl, we cannot understand why she wasn't claimed! The shelter was full, so they asked us to help. This lovely girl is so very sweet. And just look at that face! She is a mix (no idea what) and looks like she may be on the smaller side when she's done growing. GORGEOUS girl! Won't you give her a forever home? read more


Name: Oakley aka Boss
BOSS is s 6-week old male who has just come to TGPR! He is still tiny (6 lb) but has the typical Pyr double dew claws on his back legs. His foster named him Boss "to give him self confidence". :-) He is fighting off a bit of non-contagious mange on his face, and is already putting on weight. This adorable little guy is being "trained" by a houseful of big Pyrs and loving it. We hope he will have a fantastic holiday in his new forever home! Oakley is now available, owner surrendered back to TGPR, killing chickens UPDATE, OAKLEY IS NOW WITH A NEW FOSTER IN THE HOUSTON AREA, HERE IS THE LATEST INFO FROM HIS NEW FOSTERS I AM A VERY SWEET INSIDE DOG WHO IS HOUSE TRAINED AND VERY GOOD ON A LEASH I AM NOT A BARKER AND I COME WHEN I AM CALLED, I AM CRATE TRAINED AND I KNOW A LOT OF BASIC COMMANDS I ENJOY PLAYING WITH MY BROTHERS AND LOVE CARRYING MY TOYS ALL OVER THE HOUSE, I WILL MAKE A GREAT ADDITION TO YOUR FAMILY, I HAVE LOTS F PUPPY LOVE TO GIVE!! read more


Name: Olaf LGD
My name is Olaf and I am looking for a great partner to be in the pasture with me and the goats. I love kidding season when the babies play all over me. I am a very protective of my little charges. I would do best with another dog who would let me be in charge. Do you need a good guardian? Go get your application in. read more


Name: Oso aka Atlas
Oso, now known as Atlas, was found in a field bleeding from a gunshot wound and broken leg on Easter Sunday. His former owner couldn't afford the surgery, and, prioritizing Oso's best interest, surrendered him to TGPR. He has since had surgery and is recovering nicely. He still has quite a noticeable limp, but his surgeon thinks that will resolve itself in time. He is young, and had never been inside a home before. He's now crate and house trained. He does like to jump up and give hugs (foster has been working on this with limited success so far). He does have resource guarding issues, but as long as there aren't high value treats or food around, he is good with other dogs. He does like to chew and destroy stuffed toys. He's a hugger and a wrester. A very popular guy, everywhere he goes. Atlas is available for adoption. No small kids, and he is a couch potato. He has "graduated" from physical therapy and is cleared for any activity. Walks will need to be gradually increased in distance while he's still recovering. He does still have a limp which may never go away. read more

Name: Rainman
Hi! Iím Rainman. I am between 2- 3 years old and weigh about 90 lbs.TGPR thinks I have some Labrador in me as well as Pyr. Iím good off-leash, and come when called. Iím a quick learner and a sensitive pup. So please donít talk to me sternly. Iím up to date on all my vaccinations, I donít have those nasty Heartworms, I have a thing called a ďmicrochipĒ, and a part of me isnít there anymore? Where did they go? (Neutered) Before coming to my TGPR foster family, I'd lived outside all of my life! My fosters have chickens and goats, and I do OK with them. But I love being with people most of all, especially my foster's grandchildren. So I am learning to be an inside dog too.

Name: Timmy
Hey there! My name is Timmy, and Iím a Pyrs mix guy, whose life has had a lot of ups and downs. I was on the run with my Mrs. and a family found us. They realized she was pregnant and tried to keep us all, but after our babies started getting bigger - they realized our whole family was just too much work. They surrendered us to a local animal shelter, where the nice folks contacted TGPR. Unfortunately, my Mrs. got sick and the vet had to let her cross the bridge and go to the beautiful sky up above. It was now me and my kids. They found their furever homes, and it made me a happy daddy. We all want our kids to do well. The will have a very happy life. But now it is my turn to try to find my little piece of happiness. My foster has this to say about me: Iím fully vetted, and heartworm negative. I have house manners, and will let you know when I need to go outside. I know some basic commands, like "No" and "back", but I think itís the Pyr in meÖ I donít always listen! Sit is a bit of a challenge Ė why ask me to sit, when I donít think I want to? I hear about this thing called a crateÖ what is it, and will I want to be in one? Only you can decide that one for me. When Iím not in the house with the family, I have a run outside, where I get to enjoy the fresh air! Iím a chill, laid back guy, but understand, Iím still very much a young pup. My foster calls me a puppy. Hey, Iím not that young! (Am I?) I am learning the difference between toys, shoes, remotes and glasses. (Iím such a smart fellah!) I learn quickly. I donít mean to try and be the boss, it just is my way. I really need someone to take me by the paw, and show me the way. I hear about these furry things called cats, just donít know what one is, and donít know if Iíll like Ďem. And when it comes to other dogs, I will show them whose boss! Iím not fearful of the other dogs! I donít do well if Iím challenged by another dog. If you think I would be a great addition to your family, and continue to teach me, Ask about me! Thanks! read more

Name: Trinity D
Trinity D, born approx 10/1/17, is a sweet little girl who loves to play with everyone, and snuggle with her humans. She was found as a stray at just 14 wks old, and appears to have a slight unique gait when she walks and sometimes falls easily when trying to round corners on hard floors. We had x-rays done to rule out hip dysplasia, but she seems to be improving with time. She will wake you up to go outside and is doing so well on learning housetraining. She knew how to sit and shake hands and she goes and sits in her crate when it's time for her humans to leave the house. She is extremely smart, and loves to pick out all of the blue toys in the house to play with. She also loves her naps, and even fell asleep while playing with the doorstop once. She looks like a golden lab mix but her DNA test came back with so many good breeds: Rottweiler, herding breeds, Great Pyrenees & Labrador! read more


Name: Tucker
No, your eyes aren't fooling you. Tucker is indeed a Beagle in a Great Pyrenees rescue group. He's what's now known as a Great Beaglenees!! This poor kid was surrendered to a shelter with his poodle brother, due to a divorce. The family couldn't afford the dogs anymore, and gave them up. When a poodle rescue picked up his buddy, poor Tucker was beside himself with grief and fear. We have some beagle friendly volunteers in our group and they asked TGPR to step in. Of course we couldn't say no! Poor Tucker was miserable - itchy skin, horrible ear infections, and worn down teeth from scratching. His foster is taking wonderful care of him, and he's settled in with his foster family nicely. He even has two other Beagles to play with! He's a REALLY sweet dog: good with kids, other dogs and kids. He's starting to cheer up and feel better, which is a relief to those who know him. Interested in giving him a forever home? Submit your application to get started! read more


Name: Waylon Jennings
My name is Waylon Jennings and I was just sprung from the shelter! I'm with my foster; life couldn't be any better. I am a 2 year old male, who just wants some love! I was adopted out (as Apollo) from the shelter, but my owner returned me because she found out she was pregnant... I guess she didn't think she could handle both. However, I know someone out there is looking for a sweet boy like me! More to come as my foster and I get to know each other. I hope she gives me LOTS of treats!! read more

Name: Ziggy 2
Meet Ziggy! New to TGPR (June 2018), he was found as a stray and picked up by the local animal shelter. He had a "service dog" tag on his collar, but no microchip or ID tag. Shockingly, no one came to claim him! Ziggy is super mellow and very easy going. Good with other dogs, unreactive to cats. Doesn't bark much, and is just a lover! He's on the smaller size for a Pyr, which we call a "pocket pyr". He may indeed make for a good service animal, or just a lovely, wonderful companion! read more
