Name: Bearron
BEARRON (est DOB 2/14/2015) is a big, gentle guy who loves everyone, especially small children. Before coming to TGPR, he had a hard life, but it didn't diminish his positive attitude one bit. He was tied up in a yard and the collar was so tight it cut into his neck. But with room to play in a fenced yard and lots of healthy food, he is doing great now and so happy! We had to shave off his coat because it was such a mess, but now it's all growing back and he is so handsome! Bearron is getting comfortable around the goats at his foster's home, and also gets along well with the female dogs there. This wonderful dog loves to be outside, but at night, he wants to be in with his family for lots of love and hugs! read more

Name: Bonnie
Bonnie is a sweet lass born in March 2017. She had a bit of a rough start, and is recovering from mange. The vet expects a full cure in a couple weeks. At the moment, Bonnie's coat is pretty thin, but we know she will be a beautiful fur ball in a couple months! In spite of the fact that she doesn't feel 100%, her foster reports that Bonnie is the happiest little girl. She loves to play and cheerfully wags her tail all day long! Look for more information soon about Miss Bonnie! read more


Name: Captain Hook
Ahoy! They call me Captain Hook, cause I have a little twist in my tail but it doesn't stop me from wagging! Hook is the leader. He convinces the others to follow! He is the first to sound off at the first sign of danger. Great Pyrenees/Anatolian Shepherd Mix - Male Puppy. Super cute pup white with tan on face and back.

Name: Chase
Chase was brought into the San Antonio shelter (where he was called Clyde) after a family found him wandering and very hungry. After a couple days, he tried to break up a fight between the family boys (one was hurting the other) and they decided he was too rough for them. That episode landed him in the "observation" kennel at the shelter, with euthanasia possible. Facebook friends heard his plight and alerted us. The shelter staff told us that Chase was a calm, good guy in a bad situation. We met him and agreed! He knows sit and walks quite well on a leash. He allowed us to pet him all over during evaluation. When a strange man approached him on a walk at the shelter, he licked the man's hand and walked past a cat with no reaction. We are so pleased that a partnering rescue stepped up with TGPR to save him. Chase has now had a bath and is actually almost white! His foster reports he is indeed a gentle giant who is getting along beautifully with all their animals. Yay! read more


Name: Chunk
(ADOPTION PENDING)Great Pyrenees/Anatolian Shepherd Mix - Male Puppy. Poe and chunk (the twins) are like sweet cuddly teddy bear they both love the rope toys. And kisses! Super cute with badger markings and left eye patch. I am a little over two months old now and ready for my furever home! I'm playful, with lots of puppy energy, eager to learn and explore. They call me Chunk cause I'm a little heavier than my brothers and sisters. Beyond being dog, cat and kid friendly....I'm also goat friendly! Available as of June 11th to approval applicants. Not approved yet? Fill out an application now, cause puppies go quick! read more


Name: Cleo
Cleo the red! Isn't she just the cutest!? This fluffy, fun, active girl is good with dogs and all of the people. She's a snuggler, and a tugger. Smart, playful and energetic. Being part red heeler, she is also going to be smart as a whip, and will need a job to do - something to keep her mind busy so she stays out of trouble. Agility? Running or hiking? Should be easy for her! This girl is going to be a BLAST! 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: Daisy LGD
MEDICAL HOLD FOR SPAY LGD came in with mom and Dad. Tested with Goats and Sheep read more


Name: Daphne di Italia
Hi! My name is Daphne, and Iím a 2 year old Great Pyrenees/Shepherd mix lady. Iím looking for that furever home, where I can feel safe and protected from those scary storms! This past May, I was out on a walk-a-bout,(as all us Pyrs do!) and there were storms, and I had nowhere to go! I found a garage and the door was open, so I high-tailed it in there, and found a place to hide. The very nice people found me hiding, and let me stay. I made lots of friends in the neighborhood. Iíd get my exercise by taking walks with some nice ladies, and then Iíd go visiting. But I always would go back to that nice garage at night. Another storm came, and when the thunder started, it scared me, and I ran off. While trying to get away from the storm, I got myself arrested! But the police was nice, and took me to a shelter. I was bailed out by the nice people who let me sleep in the garage. I caught a cough from the shelter, and had to stay away from the other pups. When I was better, I got to meet and play with the other pups; itís so nice to have friends!I still donít like loud noises like thunder, and feel confined in tight spaces. I donít like to go for rides, (reminds me too much of getting arrested!) Iím very stubborn, and if you want me to do something, and I donít feel like it, Iíll just lie down! Iím learning house manners. I stay off the furniture, and donít potty in the house! I know how to do some tricks also! I can "sit", ďlay downĒ, and ďgo to bedĒ. Iím getting to like my crate, where my bed is. I know how to walk on a leash. When itís time to eat, Iím a bit greedy. I donít like to share my food or my toys. They are mine! I love kids, other pups, and to be scratched and loved on. My fosters say Iím calm, sweet, and very loving. Iím a great protector, and will let you know if anyone is around at night! I also will keep all those dangerous bunnies away, and if needed, I will fly over a 4-foot fence to chase them off. So thatís my story, if you need to know any more, please ask! Thanks for reading my story! Daphne! read more


Name: Darby
I everyone, thanks to a kind gentleman who found me on a patch of grass where he be here today, he took me home and had to give me 3 baths just to get the ticks and bugs off of me. He tried to find my parents but no luck He reached out to our organization for help In the meantime he took me to the vet and got me all caught up on shots at his expense. I am in a nice home with another pup and I know I will warm up to my new foster mommy quickly and my pyr buddy Foster Mom will get some good pictures so you can see how beautiful I am More to come as I settle in Thanks TGPR for giving me a second chance at life read more


Name: Denali
(ADOPTION PENDING) Denali is a lovely, happy and vibrant young lady who just LOVES people! She was has a really interesting history, but suffice it to say that her origins weren't ideal, but she's healthy and perky now! She's a higher energy girl, who loves walks and playtime. She gets a little barky when being introduced to other dogs, but is submissive once she's made contact. We are working on her jumping and leash manners, but otherwise, she's really smart and super cute! read more


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. Update 5/02: Dolly has had a fractured tooth extracted and was spayed. She's recovering nicely, and with that tooth gone, we hope she'll put on some weight and her fur will grow back faster! read more


Name: Donny
(Medical Hold) Donnie is a lovable boy that was found in a small town. He has a neurological problem that has been yet to be identified. Somehow it does not hold him back from being happy and playing with his new found friends. Adoption Pending! read more


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. Ella likes a relaxed, chill environment, so she would thrive with another easy going dog or a pet parent who works from home. read more


Name: Evie
Meet Evie! She's recently been released from medical hold. Now that Evie has been spayed and had some time to rest and recover, she's relaxing and learning how good it is to be a dog. She's gaining some weight and her fur is growing back in nicely from a pregnancy she had before being brought into rescue. She has the most soulful, beautiful dark eyes. She's learning how to play with toys, and will even toss her ball and chase it herself! She's decided that it's fun to run around and play with her foster brothers too. She loves to lazy around on the couch and snuggle! Being half Anatolian Shepherd, her coat is going to be on the shorter side, making grooming her a bit easier. This girl is really something else. She is such a quiet, loving, gentle, wonderful dog. read more


Name: Falcor LGD
been tested with sheep so far with no issues. read more


Name: Flynn
Hi everyone! My name is Flynn. I was born approx 4/2017 which make me a 2 year old Great Pyrenees, Whoís a very happy guy, in a very happy place in my life right now! It was a bit sketchy at first, but every day itís better and better! Sit down, and let me tell ya all about it! I was on a wandering tour of Terrell, just a-seeiní all the sights that Terrell has to offer, and I was being given some great meals by a friendly lady. I continued my sight-seeing tour, and got hurt. I went back to the nice lady, and she got me to a doctor, who was so nice and helpful! She took care of my injuries, and ďfixedĒ me (a nice way to say she neutered me!) The nice lady who helped me out called this great rescue, and I was given a wonderful home with some kitties, another pyr pup, and a little girl! We have so much fun together! I love to play with the pup and the little girl! The cats are funny: I try to be a friend to them, and all they want to do is play chase! I love attention, and will snuggle with you if you let me! I went to visit a home, and I learned how much I love treats! The people there were so nice to me; they gave me LOTS of petting and treats, and they kept saying how nice and friendly I was! I couldnít quit smiling! It was SO nice to have people say I was a ďvery good boy!Ē I have good house manners. I stay off the furniture, know to do my potty business outside, and am learning to use a crate. Iíll do some tricks for you also! (If I feel like it!) I know how to ďsitĒ and ďlay downĒ. Iím also learning how to walk with you on a leash. Iíd prefer to not be on one, but if thatís what it takes to live with you, Iíll learn! Iím not sure about water spraying out of a hose. I didnít like it when my foster mom tried to rinse off my leg. I prefer to eat by myself also, because I had to scavenge to find my meals! So if you pick me to be your furever friend, you definitely wonít regret it! Flynn! read more


Name: Freckles
(ADOPTION PENDING C.S.) Look at this GORGEOUS FACE!! Freckles, formerly Bealls, is super sweet and snuggly. She has been settling in with her foster family who just LOVES her. She's adjusted very well to the family pack and LOVES to jump and romp and play. She's a higher energy, large girl, who should have another higher energy, large dog to play with in her forever home. She's learning not to jump on people when she greets them, and is working on her leash manners. Freckles (so named for the fun spots on her nose), will need a family who can help her to work through some trust issues. She really enjoys being with her people, even overcoming some fear of stairs, in order to be with everyone during the night. She loves to play fetch with her stuffies, and well, play should be her middle name! read more


Name: Gidget
I am going to anew foster home where I can lots of TLC and decompress, more to come -------- Gidget came in severely underweight, injured, and having just had a litter of pups. She is very timid but with the help of her fosters she is starting to learn that food comes regular and maybe people are there to love you. read more


Name: Jeanette
Jeannie is definitely an alpha personality so she would thrive with other dogs that are more submissive in nature. She loves kids, and her people really are her main loves. Her environment with her last family created a social behavior in her so that she needs time to adjust to meeting new dogs. She seems to show more separation anxiety when left in the crate. When her people leave the house, she will cry. But after the first few days here, she's had the run of the house with the rest of my crew and does fine. Definitely gate off the kitchen because she's a counter-surfer and will sneak anything edible she can find! She is the best companion!! She follows you around the house, lays down and falls asleep if you're in the same spot for more than a minute. She really is a doll. read more


Name: Jessie Green
Hi! My name is Jessie Green, and Iím sure glad to meet ya! Iím a 2 Ĺ year old lady, and Iím told I have such pretty markings and a beautiful smile! Sit down, and let me tell you about my storyÖ My human mommy had a little person, and was overwhelmed with taking care of us, so I went to a home, but their fence was not so great, and seeing I love to roam and explore, I would slip out, and go a-wandering! When out one time, I met a nice boy, and ended up a little bit pregnant! After me babies, found homes, the people there could not keep me, so they found me a very nice lady to foster me, until I get lucky and find my very own furever home! My foster mom has been making sure Iím putting on my before puppy weight, and is giving me all the love and attention I can handle! Iím VERY sweet and gentle, and I appreciate the privilege of having a nice home with caring people, and show it! Iím potty trained, I have great house manners, I like my crate for my ďalone timeĒ, and I like other pups and even cats! Kids are fun also! I can run and play with them! I do like my privacy when I eat, Iím not being greedy, Iím just learning that I donít have to worry about meals anymore. And Iím learning how to walk on a leash. So, if you have any questions, or think Iíd be perfect for your family, please go to INFO@TXPYRS.ORG, and ask! Remember, my name is Jessie Green! Thanks for listening! read more


Name: Jolie
I was found roaming the streets and a nice person brought me to the shelter before I got hit by a car. I had no collar or microchip. The shelter was very noisy and very lonely and I was scared. Luckily, the shelter people called TGPR and got me out of there. I am great with people and kids. I get along with some dogs, as long as they know I am in charge. Honestly though, I would like to be the only dog because I want all the attention! read more


Name: Legend
Hello my name is Legend. I am male all vetted. I was born approx 11/2010. I am trained inside the house and outside the house. I love people, car rides and all other animals which include other dogs, cats goats pony's ducks chickens. I am what Legends are made of..truly a very gentle giant.

Name: Lexi
Hi ya'll! I am Lexi and I am a full pyr with double dews. I was born Dec 2016. I am now learning the leash and the art of car rides. I learned the dog door and in 48 hours. I am house trained too! My previous owner said I was great with birds. Since I was an outside dog it is probably more live outdoor birds. I a tiny bit timid right now but more confident every day. I will be an awesome girl, just have some patience with me and I will be your best friend for life! See ya, Lexi read more


Name: Lilly
(TRAINING HOLD) Hello there, my name is Lilly (formerly Snow Lilly)! I am a beautiful Great Pyrenees mix female. My vet estimates that I was born in January 2014. I may be a Pyr/Akbash mix, as I am tall and leggy with a shorter coat, but I do have double dew claws. I was seen roaming Fisher Park in New Braunfels for several days. Then I saw a lady with her dogs at the park and I decided that I would let them save me. I followed their pack for over a mile and jumped right into the car with them. I couldn't give them a chance to say no to me! This kind lady took me to the vet and got me all checked out. She even did her very best to find my owners, but they never came back for me. But I was okay with that because I now had a place where I could rest, get regular meals, and get lots of loving and petting. But I knew this was a temporary stop for me, a place for me to get back on my feet again so I could go out and find my forever home. I am sweet and friendly, easy going, housebroken, loose leash walking comes naturally to me, plus I get along great with other dogs and cats. I like as much affection as you can you are willing to give. Play time with toys is a bit confusing to me, but I love going anywhere for a walk or a drive. Maybe your home could be my forever home! read more


Name: Louise
Hi, my nameís Louise, and Iím an Anatolian/Pyr girl born 3/1/2017 which make me about 4 months now, and a very happy girl! Why am I so happy? Iím happy, because lifeís so wonderful! Let me tell you all about me: I was born on a farm, with 9 other brothers and sisters. The farmer was able to find homes for all of us, and my sister Thelma and me went to a very nice lady who unfortunately was unable to care for us properly, and she wanted to make sure we had all the chances to succeed. So she asked her daughter to take us to our foster home. Now, we get to run, play, and just have fun with the family and all the pups there! I really love attention; I will try to sit in your lap if you let me! Iím a little bit shy, until I get to know you. Then watch out! I sure love to be petted and cuddled! I love all other pups both big and small, and can play rough! I love to chew on bones and chew toys! But thatís because Iím teething. I know what a crate is, and I have good house manners. Iím still learning not to potty in your house! If you think you would like to find out more about me, and maybe want to make me a furever friend, just got to INFO@TXPYRS.ORG, and ask about me! Bye! read more


Name: Luke
Meet Luke! This guy is fun and playful, and is more on the submissive, snuggly, people pleasing end of the spectrum. He's part red heeler, so he's going to be a little smaller than your full Pyr, but SMART and eager to learn and please. He's active and would do really well with a family and other dogs. He's not been around cats, so we can't comment on that. Just look at that face! read more


Name: Lulu
(ADOPTION PENDING: PM) Lulu and her brother, Argo, are 4 month old pups who were abandoned at the ranch of a kind couple who called TGPR. Both have "Pyr eyeliner" and double dew claws on their back legs. But they have the shorter hair of a yellow Lab and the longer ears of a hound. Whatever their background, Lulu is all about having fun! What a spunky little babe she is! Lulu's foster says her eyes are gorgeous...deep brown flecked with sapphire blue! In our first photo, it sure looks like she is winking...wonder what her secret might be! read more


Name: Mamasita
Mamasita was born approx 6.2014. She came into TGPR with 3 pups. They have been adopted and now it is her turn. Complete with double dews, a cheeky grin, and the SWEETEST disposition, Mama really is a love pig. She is no doubt a family people human dog. She can be a bit stern about her space or food but for the most part she is a good dog. Come and see her in the DFW area! Thanks from Mamasita! read more


Name: Maverick
(Medical Hold) Maverick, a gambler by nature bet on the wrong person. He was found at kill shelter emaciated and he is estimated to be about 5 years old. However, his luck took a turn for the better when TGPR stepped in and his foster family is taking great care of him. He is on medical hold because he's not eating as well as he should, so we have him on the calendar for a full veterinary evaluation to figure out if the not eating is a medical issue we need to resolve before he can be released for adoption. As for his personality; he has a sweet, laid back nature, he's quiet right now but this might change with time. He loves people of all ages and is good with small dogs. When it comes to housebreaking, he has some learning to do. We believe he may have been a outdoor only dog thus far, but he's learning that inside temps are nicer with air conditioning. Plus, he gets to hang out with people! read more


Name: Maximus
Maximus (est. DOB April 2016) is a feisty, playful, loveable big ole baby! He loves to chase and wrestle with the resident dogs. In fact, he's taught two of them HOW to play! He's good with kids, though we recommend older kids as he gets carried away and plays a little rough sometimes. He loves chewing on toys - rubber and stuffed, and will even toss toys around the house, entertaining himself! We are working on leash walking -he's really pretty good, but does pull sometimes. He is getting more comfortable with the crate, but that's a work in progress. He's very much a Pyrenees - he loves to hear himself talk and is very good at guarding the house - meaning he is not suited to apartment life. He's such a great dog, with so much potential! He has been bounced around a bit a bit in his short life and it takes him quite a while to develop a relationship with new people, and to settle into new environments. Watch the TGPR Facebook page for Austin Area events, and come meet this sweet boy! 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: Meeker

Name: Pandia
(ADOPTION PENDING A.H.)Pandia is a badger marked 2-year old Pyr girl whose first family named her after a beautiful Greek goddess. She loves to be with people. She likes to swim in her foster family's pool, and they have even taken her for a dip in the Gulf of Mexico! She is living with another Pyr now, and they get along OK. But she doesn't like him near her food. Aside from that, they are fine together. In her original home, she respected two geriatric dogs without any issues. But Pandia really enjoys people best of all. She is happy to go on adventures with them or just lie quietly inside wherever they are, even at work! There are no children at her current neighborhood home. But Pandia loved the young children at her first country home, and we think she misses them and even the goats that lived there too. She will chase horses. But otherwise, she seems flexible enough to be a town or country girl. How neat! read more


Name: Rocket
HEYYYYYY!! My name is Rocket. I was born approx 3/1/2017. I am an active puppy that is waiting to find someone to play with!!. I am learning how to walk on a leash and I knows some basic commands. I get pretty anxious when I am fed, so my foster is trying to help me understand that noone will steal my food. I do not like all! Otherwise my foster says I am very sweet when there isn't any food involved I love people and kids and I am completely housebroken. Thanks! read more


Name: Roman
(Medical Hold) My name is Roman, I had a rough year man but my luck seems to be turning round. I've got a really nice foster family who run a min-farm. They have barn cats, goats,cows, horses and a PIG! I am more of a people dog, I love to cuddle and get belly rubs. I really like play time and barking at the cows is kind of fun too (shhhhh don't tell my fosters). I've got a couple corgis that let me play with them but the pig isn't really into it. Oh well, I am recouping here from losing a little too much weight and getting treatment for heart worm during too much time outside without meds to protect me. They are talking about neutering me after my heart worm treatment is completed....whatever neutering is. Love me some treats, but not a fan of crates. Looking for my fur-ever home! read more


Name: Rusty
Rusty is a handsome guy with the reddish gold fur of a Golden Retriever and the face and "eyeliner" of a Great Pyrenees. He is also smaller than a full Pyrenees male, and will probably weigh about 75 pounds once his foster gets more groceries into him. Rusty fit in right away with the 2 Pyr girls and the children of his fosters. He is a sweet-natured boy who is doing very well learning to walk in a harness. He's also learning that counter-surfing is not good manners. But he's a quick study and will soon be ready for his own forever family. He is heartworm positive, but don't let that discourage you! He will be treated and rid of those dumb worms soon! read more


Name: Sally
Sally is a friendly 6-year-old Pyr with a gorgeous long coat which has just been shaved to eliminate bad matting. The fur had really gotten SO thick! Her owners are giving her up because she started protecting their home on the edge of a woods from possums and skunks. The owner can't stand to have those small creatures killed. Sally also tried to scare off a porcupine, but ended up with quills in her face. Aside from that, Sally is a happy girl who has lived for years with a small dog and a small child. She loves to go for walks to the downtown area of Fredericksburg, where everyone comments on how beautiful she is. Now Sally needs a loving home in less rural setting without possums or where her dislike of small varmints will welcomed! If you are looking for a grown Pyr who has been loved, consider Sally! read more

(MEDICAL HOLD) Shomer (pronounced show-mare) is a Jewish word describing a legal guardian entrusted with the custody and care of another's object. He has a very chilled and laid back nature. He's also very saddened by the sudden death of his Human Mom, who recently passed away. He may be a little more active with some meat on his bones, as he is thinner than he should be for his size. He's been a pretty picky eater, possible due to the loss of his human Mom. Shomer is esimated to have been born in June 2016. He is a companion animal, not LGD. He likes to spend some time outside and can use a dog door from what I understand. But very much loves the air conditioning and he enjoys sleeping inside. He has not been exposed to livestock. Good with kids and adults. Medical hold: Shomer will be on hold until heals from surgery, successfully finishes heartworm treatment and gets some weight back. He's got about 40 lbs to gain, so it may be a while. Check back for updates! read more

Name: Thelma
Hi, my nameís Thelma! Iím an Anatolian/Pyr mix girl, I was born 4/6/2017 and a very happy girl! You can tell it by the way Iím always smiling! Why am I smiling? Iím always smiling, because lifeís so wonderful! Let me tell you all about me: I was born on a farm, with 9 other brothers and sisters. The farmer was able to find homes for all of us, and my sister Louise and me went to a very nice lady who unfortunately was unable to care for us properly, and she wanted to make sure we had all the chances to succeed. So she asked her daughter to take us to our foster home. Now, we get to run, play, and just have fun with the family and all the pups there! I really love attention; I can play rough, and love bones and toys! I love to chew on all those bones and chew toys! I know what a crate is, and I have good house manners. I wonít potty in your house! I have a beautiful voice, and I love to sing for everyone! Iíve been told Iím a bit sassy, and I like to talk back! If you think you would like to find out more about me, and maybe want to make me a furever friend, just got to INFO@TXPYRS.ORG, and ask about me! Bye! read more

Name: White Cloud
White Cloud is a block-headed gorgeous full male Pyr with a thick white coat. He will turn 3 years old in August 2017. Did you ever see the Disney movie "Santa Paws"? White Cloud comes from that beautiful line of AKC Pyrs. He is a tad muddy in these photos because he has been living in a large dog run for the past year. He's going to the groomer this week. But Cloud doesn't care! He's a country guy, who enjoys watching the roosters that live on the other side of the wire from him. One flew into his side one night, and boy was Cloud surprised. But he didn't hurt the flustered bird and allowed his owner to pickup the unexpected visitor and put him back on the "rooster side". Like his friends Rain, Savage, and Dream, Cloud is looking forward to a home where he can have more room and a family of his own. He loves his owner and her son, but hey! Life is all about new adventures! read more


Name: Zephyr
(ADOPTION PENDING S.E.) Zephyr is a sweet, laid-back, happy fellow who has had rough go of it lately. He came to TGPR from an animal shelter where he was picked up as a stray.

He's beautiful, intelligent and calm. Dog friendly and REALLY good with kids. We took him to visit a kitty at the shelter, and he did really well! Not reactive at all. This is an all-around sweet, amazing boy! NOTE: He is not neutered at this time, and unfortunately, tested mild positive for heartworms. read more
