Our Adoptable Dogs

Name: Aahz MacBuckle

On Medical Hold. Aahz (pronounced Oz) appears to be a gentle soul that has been through a lot in his 3 years having come from a hoarder situation. He is on hold while we fix his severe ear infections and get to know him better. This beautiful boy has party eye (one brown and one blue). His blue eye has a birth defect called "keyhole'. He can see out of that eye but it does give him a magical a mysterious look that is very unique.

Name: Alder

Alder is one of Clover's adorable little boys. He's working on figuring out how to open his eyes and walk right now. Too soon to say much about his personality. These guys had a rough start, but a lot of folks pitched in to save them and ensure a wonderful future. Stay tuned as we learn more about this little guy!

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, and get that application in! Just tell Ďem ďAngel sent me!Ē Thanks!

Name: Anna Banana

Hi! My Name is Anna, and this year, itís been a crazy ride! Iím a 2 year old Pyr girl, who was out on my own, pregnant and alone. Iím now in a wonderful foster home, with plenty to eat, lots of love, and my needs taken care of. My babies have been adopted, so now itís my time! I have great house manners, I get along with other pups, and like to patrol the back yard, and get belly rubs! For more information, go to! Thanks!

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, 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

(ADOPTION PENDING T.P.)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. Apollo LOVES to spend time running around outside and when he's tired, will nap for hours on the couch. Good with other dogs, ignores the cat and is really great with older kids (he doesn't appreciate his own size, and knocks the baby over when romping). He is recovering from some medical issues, but should be available for adoption in late May.

Name: Ayana

One of Clover's lovely babies! A cute little girl. She's still growing into herself. We will update as we learn more about her.

Name: Baron

(MEDICAL HOLD) Baron and his brother Duke came to us from a shelter. They were VERY stressed, but sweet as can be! Baron is shy and nervous around new people, and taking a bit of time to warm up to his foster family. He doesn't seem to know how to play, and we're working on leash training. You can tell he really wants to love and be loved on, but he's afraid - indicating some type of abuse in his family. Both Baron and Duke are on MEDICAL HOLD until they have had some time to decompress and develop some trust in people. Once they have adjusted to their new, cozy lifestyle, both of these boys are going to make wonderful, loving companions!

Name: Bearron

Bearron (est DOB 2/14/2015) was surrendered to TGPR by a South Texas family with 4 very young children. Even though they had no fence and left him tied up outside, he was very gentle with the children. We had to give him a "military" puppy cut because he was matted and covered with fleas. Those unwelcome visitors are gone now, and his gorgeous coat will soon grow back. He has just met a goat at his foster's home, and is getting along well with the sweet female dogs there. More to come soon!

Name: Beaumont

Hi! My name is Beaumont, named after that great city! Iím a 3 year-old Fluff ball, who is plumb full of love and snuggles. I was rescued by the Paws of Beaumont, after I was on a walkabout, and was hit by a car. My leg was broken, but through it all, I was as gentle and loving as I could be! My leg is all healed up, and Iím ready to be YOUR Pyr, and give all my love and snuggles to YOU! Iím very high energy; I love other pups, not too sure about the kitties! Kids are ok, I love to run and play hard! For more information, go to Thanks, Beaumont!

Name: Bennett

MEDICAL HOLD!!! Bennett came to TGPR when he was deathly sick with Parvo. HE is currently recuperating and doing very well. More to come as we learn more about his personality.

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 am the epitome of the gentle giant even with an abscessed tooth that was extracted. 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: Blanca the Explorer

ADOPTION PENDING (SC) Blanca is a cheerful, all white Pyr pup who will be a year old in September. Her foster family thinks she escaped from an unsavory place where she was restrained by her back legs in such a way that circular wounds developed. Those have been treated. She is safe now in a Pyr-perfect setting with lots of room to run and play with the other dogs and cats in the home. What a sweetheart she is! Blanca is a great choice for a family with another playful dog. Like any happy puppy, she loves to wrestle with her canine friends or explore the yard and fence line. Then she falls sound asleep by her people. This cutie is quite the adventuress, although home is where her heart is!

Name: Bowie

(ADOPTION PENDING C.A.) Hi, My name is Bowie. I am a playful loving pup. I am housebroken, crate trained, and I walk on a leash. What more can you ask for right! Like a lot of big dog puppies I love to play with kids but sometimes don't realize how big I am getting. I keep having these growth spurts you know. I would love a home where I could have a playmate to help me learn things and adjust through all of this growing up stuff. Thanks!

Name: Clover

Clover has had it rough for a while. She had been living on a dirt road in the country, where she had been dumped. After having puppies, a good Samaritan managed to catch her and took her and her 6 beautiful babies to the local shelter. She's eating like a champ and is an amazing mommy! she's resting and recovering. while adjusting to what we like to call 'the good life.' After the puppies are weaned, she will be available for adoption as well!

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!

Name: Daphne

Iím Daphne, how are you? Iím a 2-year old Pyrenees girl, who is looking out there for my one and only furever home. Once upon a time, I was on a furever home hunt, and I saw a great house! I went up to my foster mom and asked her if I could stay there for awhile. My super nice foster mom told me I could stay with her and her other foster pups, until I find MY furever home. I had an evaluation done, and Iím told that Iím the gentlest Pyr you could ever have! I love everyoneÖ kids, adults, other pups, and even kitties! I enjoy being outside when the weather is cool, and Iím very laid back. Iíll be a great addition to any family! For more information, go to! Just tell Ďem ďDaphne sent me!Ē

Name: Denali

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!

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!

Name: Donnie

(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.

Name: Duchess

(Medical Hold) 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: Duke

(MEDICAL HOLD) Duke and his brother Baron came to TGPR through a shelter. They were picked up as strays, but no one ever stepped up to claim them. Duke is wonderful, sweet boy! He is good with older kids, unsure of smaller ones, and he's shy and nervous at first with anyone new. He will need a little time to warm up (read - minutes, maybe a couple hours). He seems to prefer a quiet environment, and behaves as though he's suffered some mistreatment and neglect in his past. He's a bit fearful of quick movements and loud noises. He's been with his foster for 24 hours now (4/30/2017) and has already started to settle in. We will update with more information as we get to know him! MEDICAL HOLD: Duke and Baron are VERY stressed and in need of some time to decompress. While they are working on that, we will be working on house training, leash walking, and learning how to play.

Name: Einstein

(ADOPTION PENDING LW)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!! Einstein is a love bug, he loves cuddling especially when he's sleepy. He has also learned to use the doggy door and loves being outside.

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: Fleur

Fleur is one of Clover's puppies. Born in the country after being abandoned on a dirt road... Not the greatest start, but she's winning at life now! She couldn't have asked for a better foster. She's just starting to learn about the world. We will update more as we get to know her!

Name: Gandolph the White

I am Gandalf. I was born approx May 2013 and am a beauty for sure. I have the Great Pyrenees with double dews too! I want the house pet life carefree and having fun with my furever family with kids.

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.

She is learning about leash walking and basic commands and manners. Check back for more information as we get to know her!

Name: Jasper

(MEDICAL HOLD)Can you believe it? This cute little baby was picked up as a stray, and no one claimed him! Of course, we couldn't pass him up. What a doll! He's active, fluffy and super adorable. What more could you ask for!? Just look at that face! We will be getting him started on his vaccinations, and then he'll be ready to go to his forever home!

Name: Juniper

One of Clover's two adorable little boys. He's a sweet little thing! Born under less than ideal circumstances, he's hit the foster jackpot! Life is good for little Juniper now! Stick around and we will update as he starts to let us into his new world.

If you would like some more info on me, go to Love, Loretta Lynn, Your ďHonky-Tonk Girl!Ē

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. He's such a great dog, with so much potential! He has been bounced around a bit and it should be noted that he will likely take a few weeks to settle into a new environment. Watch the TGPR Facebook page for Austin Area events, and come meet this sweet boy!

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!

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 first family named her after a beautiful Greek goddess. That name certainly fits this lovely 2-year old. Pandia is a quiet, happy girl who 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 up when they moved to a place with horses because she chased the horses. Her next owners left her alone on a huge ranch with only their goats for company. But Pandia was lonely with the goats and kept coming back to the house. She wanted to be with people. Now Pandia has a wonderful TGPR foster family. She swims in their pool, and they have even taken her for a swim in the Gulf! She is living with another Pyr there, but really prefers to have her family all to herself. She is happy to go on adventures with them or just lie quietly inside wherever they are! If you are looking for a devoted Pyr to share your life, meet Pandia!

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

Hello my name in Pearl, I came to TGPR after I was hit by a car and had my leg broken. My owner didnít really wanted me, so his neighbor talked him into giving me to TGPR so they could take care of me. TGPR has treated me like the Princess I always should be treated as. They fixed my leg, got my spayed, and treated my heartworms. I am a stunningly beautiful girl now and don't have even the slightest limp. You would never know I was injured looking at me. I am quiet. I rarely bark, and if I do it's not really that loud. A Princes never screams you know. Totally not dignified. I am particular about who my friends are. Some dogs can hang out with me, some just are not cool enough to be in my circle. (You want to act like a loon go someplace else and do that.) Though I do like to play with the dogs that are cool like m. I ignore cats. They are beneath my notice. I love to go for walks, sit outside in the breeze, and get lots of pets. I want someone who will adore me, give me lots of love, and will treat me like a priceless Princes I really am.

Name: Sadie

Sadie is a sweet, fluffy bundle of cuteness! She loves to romp and play the day away! She's being exposed to goats, chickens, cats and small children at her foster home. She appears to be a Pyrenees mix - she has the double dew claws and the fluffy Pyr coat! What is she mixed with you ask? Who knows! Whatever it is, she sure is cute! Her approximate date of birth is 3/11/2017.

Name: Sally Sue

--- I have a special adoption price of $100 ------ 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. She will spend most nights outside guarding the yard but knows the dog door and if you say treats, she is on her way to you! We are still working with her on the leash and her anxiety about riding in cars. If you are looking for a nice companion, Sally Sue really is your girl.

Name: Sasha

You don't often see long-haired brindle dogs, but Sasha is the exception! This lovely girl is off the charts on the cute scale with that gorgeous brindle and white fur. She is so playful and sweet! She is being exposed to goats, chickens, cats and small children at her foster home. If all continues to go well, she will really turn out to be well-rounded and a wonderful family member! She won't last long, so get your application in!

Name: Stella

(ADOPTION PENDING E.E)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: Tiki

Tiki is a wonderfully sweet girl who came to us when her owners could no longer care for her. She is very calm, and is what we call a "pocket puppy". She will follow her people around all day, just quietly being present. She does get along with other dogs and with older kids. She gets anxious around small kids if they move to fast or make a lot of noise. She is loving and has the nicest face! If you'd like to meet this sweet lady, please complete the adoption application!

Name: Zinnia

One of Clover's puppies. Mom was brought to a shelter as an abandoned stray when this girl was 6 days old. She's working on learning about the world right now, and we'll update more as we learn about her!
