Our Adoptable Dogs

Name: Albert

HI everybody! I was born 3/10/17. Me and My brother Einstein were born under a truck bed. My mama had no place to go and she did the best she could. Now we are in a safe warm place and mama says some day we will have a new home!! We will be ready to go on about May 10th. More to come as we get a little older


Name: Angel LGD

Hi all! My name is Angel, and Iím looking for my very own group that I can guard! If you havenít guessed it by now, Iím a 7 year-old Gen-u-ine Livestock Guard Dog, with the ďStay away, Iím working!Ē attitude. My previous owners gave me up, because they couldnít handle my barking. (A Pyr that barks? Preposterous!) Iím great at my job; my last one was with the same flock of goats and sheep for 4 years! All I was doing was taking care of business, like any good LGD would! I have a great smile, double dews, and have all my vetting. So letís add me to your group, so I can do what Iím happiest at doing: Guarding my charges! So if you think I would be just what you are looking for, just go to txpyrs.org, and get that application in! Just tell Ďem ďAngel sent me!Ē Thanks!


Name: Anna Banana

Hi! My Name is Anna and it has been a crazy time for me. I was born apprx 3/2015. I was out on my own and was pregnant. It was so hard because I struggled finding food and a place to have my puppies. Sadly only two survived. Now I am in a wonderful home with nice people that care for me and my sweet babies. They tell me that some day Itoo will have a for ever home. Until now, I will care for my babies and enjoy not having to worry about my next meal. I love being in a home and I am very nice to other dogs. Maybe you have a place for me?


Name: Anny Anna

Hi! How are you? My name was Anna, but now people call me Anny! I love kids and most dogs but I do want to be alpha! Iím a 5 year old Pyr mixed girl, who is confused. Let me explain: My story is as such: I was adopted as a little girl, and Iíve given my life to being a guard to my kids when they were outside playing. Let no coyote or snake come in my domain! Iíve done a wonderful job! Iím a great protector of my family! While I don't "kill" the snakes I do stand over them so my owner can come and take care of the snakes to keep the kids safe. I keep the coyotes away by barking so they wonít try to get in my yard! Letís be honest, Iím part Pyrenees, so barking is bred in me! By my barking, it helps keep the coyotes away from my neighborís houses also. So you would think that Iím really a neighborhood protector! Unfortunately, the neighbors donít appreciate my helping keep everyone safe, so now I have to find a new furever home. (Sniff Ė Sniff) I just donít understand thisÖ Iím very well behaved in my house, I have great indoor manners, and I devote myself to protecting my family! Itís just not fair! So seeing I need to find a new furever home to call my own, I would prefer a home where I get to be alpha and I do want to enjoy the company of other dogs as long as they don't take charge. I want all the guardian duties for myself, and I get all the attention and love! So, if you think you would like a protector, who takes her career seriously and snuggle on the couch with you, and be your best furever companion, Iím your girl! Now just go to www.txpyrs.org, and get that application in! While there, please check out the other fur friends who are looking for their furever homes! Hope to hear from you soon! Love, Anny!


Name: Apollo

Apollo is an energetic, curious, adorable little guy! He looks like he's going to get to be a big boy when he's grown. He's fun-loving and playful. A Pyr mix (not sure what other breed at this point), with a single dew claw. He's got really soft fur, and is very well behaved in the car. His foster family is still learning about him and will share more as they get to know him!


Name: Apollo LGD

Apollo is a 14 month old energetic boy that is already showing great LGD promise! He loves his chickens and does well with goats. NO ducks or pigs for him though!! He will get along well with the rest of your pack and your barn cats. This boy likes to free range so LGD proof fencing is a must or he will disa-pyr!!! He is lightening fast. Nonetheless, Apollo is willing to please and has been very responsive to his foster. He will require an experienced LGD owner to help him adjust to his new home.


Name: Appa

Appa came to us with some issues, but has been working diligently with the Texas Dogfather and has improved greatly! He has learned so much about how fun and wonderful the world can be. In training he learned how to integrate into a pack and socialize with dogs. He's also learned that people are AWESOME! He is now ready for foster and/or adoption! We'd love to be able to integrate him into the right home environment. The Dogfather feels that Appa will do best in a calm home without small children, with a family who can help him maintain his confidence and will provide stability. Does this sound like you? If so, let us know! Note: his training comes with two free sessions with the Dogfather to ensure that communication with Appa remains consistent. WIN!

He suffered a broken leg that has since been repaired. Even through his pain, he still was gentle and loving. Now that he is on the mend, he is looking for his forever home.


Name: Beowulf

Hello! I am a big boy born approx 1/2011. I came from the Ellis County SPCA. I had a sore mouth but also a very friendly disposition.

I live with a young child as well as a little bitty Maltese and life is good but if I get adopted life will be the BEST!

Name: Caesar (Manfred)

Caesar is a sweet, mellow boy. He's great with children and other dogs. He is house, leash and crate trained. He loves being indoors with the family but also loves to go for a walk. His approximate birthday is August 10, 2015. He's a shy, sensitive fellow, who needs a little time to adjust to new environments. Everyone who has met him just absolutely loves him! His foster is feeding him nutritious food so that he can add the extra pounds needed. Caesar is already neutered, up-to-date with his all his shots, and ready to be in his forever home with his new family!


Name: Cedar

I am so happy to be part of this thing called a rescue!! I was in a terrible place with lots of scared barking dogs. And I felt so itchy and uncomfortable. This nice lady sprung me from my prison and took me to the doctor. They gave me a special bath for my skin "fliciton" They said I will be better in no time!! I am just so happy to be with people who care. They have promised me to find a new home with people who will play with me and love me, just like I want to love back!!


Name: Daphne

One day I wandered up to my foster Moms home and after I saw this great place to rest my tired body I decided I would like to stay here as my foster Mom has lots of dogs and does dog rescue to. Mom decided she would give me a home and take care of me till a real home becomes available for me. I was evaluated today and I am the most gentle pyr you could ever have, I love people cats and dogs and children. I am very laid back and enjoy being outside when the weather is cool and I sleep in at night, I will be a great asset for someone looking for a great family dog


Name: Dixie

Dixie is a very goofy and lovable 14 month old pup that has never met a stranger - loves all dogs (both big and small), is great with cats, and apparently deer!! Her house manners are exceptional. Completely trained. She is so smart she has trained her foster to pamper her too. She loves walks and is becoming famous in her foster neighborhood. She will be perfect for an active family that will take her with them for outings or a home with a play buddy so she doesn't get bored. Are you that awesome home she has been waiting for?


Name: Dolly

(MEDICAL HOLD)As you can see, Dolly has had a rough go of it. Originally the shelter couldn't even estimate her age correctly because she was in such rough shape. We had her tested for everything and she's a very lucky girl. HW- and negative for mange! She's got a horrible infection in both ears, and her skin is super irritated from a massive flea infestation. We've rid her of fleas and had her professionally bathed. She's already feeling much better! She will be available for adoption as soon as we get her vetted, get her ears treated and have her spayed. She is a LARGE girl, weighing in at about 87 lbs (and she's thin), quiet and sweet! She's a keeper for sure! Watch for updated photos as we get her healed up and feeling better.


Name: Duchess

I will be going to a new foster home as my Mom is very ill and cannot take care of me anymore. I'm going to miss my Mom but the new lady that is going to take care of me is very nice. Since my Mom has been in the hospital so much she hasn't been able to take care of me and my skin was very itchy and I was always scratching and lost some of my hair I am on meds now as I am allergic to fleas. I also need to put on some weight So you just wait and see how beautiful I will be in no time, see you later


Name: Einstein

HI everybody! I was born 3/10/17. Me and My brother Albert were born under a truck bed. My mama had no place to go and she did the best she could. Now we are in a safe warm place and mama says some day we will have a new home!! We will be ready to go on about May 10th. More to come as we get a little older


Name: Ella

Ella is the sweetest, loviest young lady! She just finished raising some of the cutest puppies EVER! She did a marvelous job of it and now she's looking for her forever home where she can be loved - just for being her own sweet self! So far, she's been good with people of all shapes and sizes and has greeted other dogs at the vet with ease! She will need to be spayed as soon as the vet thinks she's ready. Her perfect home should be reasonably calm. Not sure how she feels about cats yet.


Name: Hobble aka Hobbs

(ADAPTION PENDING) Hobbs has had a rough start in life. Approximately 12 months old, he was found as a stray, really thin, with an old leg injury that had healed in a bad position. Lucky for him, he was found and cared for by a vet! Unfortunately, the leg couldn't be saved, but that's not slowing Hobbs down a bit! He seems to be a submissive guy, who wants nothing more than to play, or snuggle up on the couch and sleep. We aren't sure about kitties yet, but he's been good with the other dogs in the house. It doesn't seem like he's used to being inside much, so his house training is in progress. He's on medical hold for now, while he heals up from surgery. Update: 3/23/2017 Hobbs has calmed down a lot and is such a lovebug! He's healing up really nicely but needs to put on some more weight before the vet is willing to allow him to be released from medical hold.


Name: Jackson LGD

Meet Jackson LGD. He is a great boy that loves being in the pasture. Currently he shares duty with Angel LGD and they make a great team. Jackson is a little shy at first but will warm up to you. Make no mistake though he is an LGD through and through. He is ready to be a guardian to your goats.


Name: Jasmine (Dahlia)

Jasmine and Nina came into rescue together from a shelter where they had been picked up as strays. They were a little nervous at first but are coming out of their shells. Jasmine's approximate birthday is 10/14/15. She's not accustomed to stairs, which her foster mom is working on with her. She LOVES kids, and gets along great with other dogs. She is learning about leash walking and basic commands and manners. Check back for more information as we get to know her!


Name: June

Hello my name is June, I was born appx March 2016. I am not a jumper from the fence. I love love to ride in the car.I am completely house broken and I will use a doggie door if you have one. I am very gentle around our young grandchildren and loves when they come over. Her barking is probably the only negative at the Denton PetSmart! Sincerely, June


Name: Loretta Lynn

Hi Yíall! My name is Loretta Lynn, and Iím a good, Ďol country gal, just like that singer lady Loretta Lynn! We share the name, and our love for the country life! "When youíre lookiní at me, youíre lookiní at country!Ē Iím about 7 years old, and a very sweet, and beautiful lady! Would you agree? My past home was with a wonderful lady, and some other Pyrs in the country. It was the "Best years of my life" (It looks like thereís a theme here!) Well, my story is as such: I was all happy, enjoying my life, and my lady got very sick. (Sniff) Unfortunately, we were all scared, because who wants a mature pup? It seems that everyone wants the youngíuns! This was one of "My darkest days". Then this great rescue came, and I went to a great foster who gives me love and attention. But letís be honest, yíall: "I've got a picture of y'all on my mind", and all Iím really wanting is my very own furever home, with my very own furever family! I promise to be the best furry family member yíall will ever want! Youngíuns are cute and fun, but you canít beat a mature pup! That would be "Success!" So I'm waiting, if you would like some more info on me, and to put that application in! Please don't "Lead me on"! Love, Loretta Lynn, Your ďHonky-Tonk Girl!Ē


Name: Mac (formerly Buckle)

ADOPTION PENDING (KW) Mac/Buckle came to TGPR from a hoarding seizure in Arizona in Nov. 2015. Mac is a large and very handsome boy with one blue eye and one brown eye! He has been living outside with his longtime foster who had planned to keep him. He has come back to us because she moved to a home with cats and he is not cat-friendly. He does beautifully with other dogs and also with new people, given time. He is very shy with strangers, but shows no aggression at all, even when frightened. He went for a long car ride today, and while terrified getting in the car at first, settled down beautifully once underway. More to come soon!


Name: Maximus

Maximus (est. DOB April 2016) is a lively 10 month old Pyr pup. He was surrendered from a loving home because he insisted on chasing their horse and they feared he would get hurt. Aside from that, he is the best pup...friendly, affectionate and curious about the world around him. Max is already neutered and up to date on his shots-- he is ready to go! Max is housetrained and will even use a pee pad if you leave one out for him. He loves affection and you just can't help but hug and love on this snuggle bug. Updated 3/6/17: While at his foster home, Max went after the resident kitty. The other dogs didn't appreciate that and now he's a bit insecure around other dogs. We are going to spend a little time working on that, as doggie social skills are VERY important. Good news: we met up with a few kiddos at Home Depot this weekend and he was unfazed by the poking and petting. WIN! Update: 4/04 Maximus is improving! Looks like he'll be available in about two weeks!! Update: 04/10 Maximus is off Medical Hold. He's got an ear infection but he's almost done with meds. He's ready to meet his new family!


Name: Nina (Petunia)

Nina and Jasmine were pulled from the shelter together. They were both a little shy but have been warming up quickly. Nina LOVES kids, as you can see in her photos. She's lovely and snuggly and so sweet! She seems to be a moderate to low energy lady, who is the epitome of the breed standard - gentle giant. Her birthday is estimated to be 10/14/2015, and she's an average size for a female. Come back to check for updates as we get to know her!


Name: Odie

(ADOPTION PENDING J.M.)Meet Odie! A sweet, stately gentleman who loves a good scratch and a cool, dry place to lay his head. He's an easy-going guy who is looking for his forever home. It appears that he is about 8-9 years old. Perfect for snuggles and company, and low energy so you don't have to worry about him zooming around your house! We're still learning about him, so stay tuned!


Name: Pandia

Pandia is a badger marked Pyr girl whose original family named her after the "bright and beautiful" daughter of the Greek god, Zeus. That name certainly fits this lovely 2 year old. Pandia seems to find joy in everything and she loves to swim! At her first home, she lived happily with her human family and a small group of goats. Her owners had to give her to another family because Pandia constantly chased horses at their new residence. Pandia's new family left her out on a huge ranch with only goats for company, thinking that all Pyrs are naturally livestock guardians. But she was lonely with the goats and kept coming back to the house. So that family realized she is a companion dog, not an LGD. The original owner put them in contact with us, and now Pandia is a TGPR girl! She already loves her South Texas foster family, especially since they have a place for her to swim and a dog to play with. She has been to the groomer too, and seems very pleased to leave life in the pasture behind!


Name: Parker

Parker (DOB 8/8/2016) is such a handsome BIG fuzzy boy, who is 8 months old. He is being fostered on a ranch with horses and lots of small breed rescue dogs. The horses surprised him at first, but he's getting used to them now. And he has a great time playing with the smaller dogs. His foster is giving him great experiences from hiking along the river to going to work with her. She says Parker is a lovable goof-ball who is eager to learn. She is working with him on his leash manners. Clearly Parker will make an awesome friend and fellow explorer! We don't think he will be a foster dog much longer. What do you think?


Name: Pearl

ON MEDICAL HOLD: My name is Pearl, I came into TGPR because someone wanted to help me get my broken leg fixed. More to come about me after I recuperate from my surgery. Update: I am 70% healed from my accident. The vet told me that in a month I can get spayed and start my HW fast kill treatment. Not sure what all that means but my foster Mom was happy. Pearl. Update: Now with her leg fully healed and spayed Pearl is ready to start her HW treatment. Pearl tolerates some dog, will even play with them, but not others. She is very friendly with humans of all sizes though. She will resource guard 'special' treats but is fine in her foster pack with normal daily treats.


Name: Quincy

Hi! My name is Quincy, but I don't think that name suits me too well. I feel more like a Hank or even a Brad. The rescue ladies tell me I'm handsome and think I've got Golden Retriever in my background. But when you get down to it, I'm kind of a "dog's dog". I don't ask for too much. In my 3 years of life, I've had a chance to find out what I really like. I really like being with my family. I like staying busy by checking along the fence so I can keep my people safe. And there is so much to look at outside! I love kids, the human kind, that is! Goats and their babies seem like silly creatures. I lived with some for a couple days, but they had no interest in playing with me, even when I chased them. I also don't get cats or chickens. They just don't know how to wrestle properly! I would love to have a human pal and maybe another cool dog to hike with and then just hang out. Does that sound neat to you? If so, great! Let's make a date to meet!


Name: Sally Sue

Meet Sally Sue. She has come a long way! She is a small girl but her love is large! She was born 8/28/2012. She knows the dog door and is very pack friendly! Now that the days and evenings are nice, she loves to spend her time watching over the yard. She does bark but it is actually a sweet soft bark unlike the bigger boom barks of the Great Pyrenees. If you are looking for a nice companion, Sally Sue is your girl.


Name: Spirit Bear

Hi everyone, My name is Spirit. I am a big girl and very sweet. I like other dogs and cats. Of course I like other people too!! I am coming into TGPR as I bark too much and the neighbors are not happy campers. Mom said she has tried everything including a bark collar and I still bark. I know, I have to bark to let my owners know that there may be a strange person around. Sometimes I'm just bored, sometimes I just like to talk to the other dogs in the area. Apparently the neighbors do not appreciate my chatting with them though. Hey, what girl doesn't like to talk right? My Mom doesn't want to surrender me to TGPR, I wish I knew not to bark so much. I am staying with my Mom until I find a new home. This is really hard on her you know. But I am sure that some really nice person will take me in that lives were nobody will care if I like to chat. I am sure that together we can make Mom's heart less sad. ~ Paws! Spirit


Name: Stella

Hi, I'm Stella. My family didn't really have time for me anymore. They left me outside most of the day and I would get bored and go over the fence for a Walk About. They didn't like that too much either. So they decided to take me to the shelter. Fortunately the Shelter people were able to get me into TGPR. I'm a good girl. House trained, love cats, kids and other dogs. (Though I have a sore on my face from a bully dog at the shelter that wasn't nice to me. I was good though!) I am very affectionate. I want a family that will love me, give me lots of attention and not ignore me. I am UTD on my shots, spayed, about 2-3 years old. Unfortunately I am HW +.


Name: Zeus LGD

Zeus and his brother Apollo came to us by way of the Houston AC. They are picked up accidentally on the ranch they grew up on by someone inexperienced with LGDs. Zeus bit the person who tried to manhandle him into a kennel!! After a 7 day hold, TGPR went and evaluated him. Zeus is an alpha dog and will need an experienced handler. Nevertheless he is very bonded with Apollo and takes his direction from his brother. HE is a good perimeter pyr that has quickly learned to patrol the property with Apollo and the foster's other pyrs. He is learning to stay away from the ducks, he has no issues with Chickens. This dog will be a jewel once his fully trained and settled on the right property.
