Name: Chase
(HOLD) Chase is a lovely dog! He came out of a shelter, where he was slated for euthanasia if he wasn't picked up, and thanks to a good samaritan, we got him! He has adjusted to life as a house dog, and loves some AC! He's good with other dogs, but LIVES to lazy around and hang out with the kiddos. He's been through the ringer this year, and will need solid leadership and a longer adjustment period with his new family. He gets a little overprotective for a while as he's adjusting to his new family. But just look at that face!! He's got a heart of gold, and the fur to match! He's an area favorite! read more


Name: Cheddar
Cheddar is a young Pyr male who just celebrated his first birthday. He is mostly white, but has a caramel "mask" on one side of his face. Cheddar has just arrived at his foster home after coming to TGPR with a group of Pyrs taken from a hoarder by the authorities. We are amazed how very affectionate and well-mannered he is. He will now have fun adventures "at the Coast" as we get to know him better! read more


Name: Chipper
It was a stroke of luck that we ended up with Chipper. We didn't even know about him when we went to the shelter to pick up a different dog. Staff at the shelter loved him so much, and felt sure that he had a family somewhere. He's friendly, and clean, well mannered, and in good shape! Alas, his family didn't show up. They were sad to see him go, but thrilled for him to be safe with TGPR! He's a snugly lap dog, who loves to give ALL of the kisses! He played kissy face with his new foster mom all the way home on his freedom ride. He's SO sweet and just gorgeous! He won't be with us long, so get your app in! * He will be ready to adopt, just as soon as he is neutered and recovers a bit. 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! Get your application in, she won't be with us long! 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: 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: Fiona Rose
Meet Fiona, she is a Pyr/Retriever mix with a gorgeous cream & white coat and a cute brown nose! She is just shy of 3 yrs old, spayed, current on all vaccines, and has beautiful house manners. We aren't sure how she does with cats but Fiona would be best in a home that didn't have small dogs. She loves to be loved on, and is so sweet you can't help but love on her! read more

Name: Iceman
Poor Iceman has had a really hard time lately. According to the shelter intake notes, he was found in a ditch or field unresponsive. A good Samaritan took him home and tried to rehab him, but his medical needs exceeded their level of experience. He then found himself in a shelter, where no one else wanted to give him a shot either. Enter TGPR! This guy is SWEET. He's got the BEST face and huge, soft ears. He's good with kids and tolerated another dog getting aggressive with him. He is going to be on medical hold for a while, resting and getting healthy. Ice had a couple odd tumors in his rear area. They were surgically removed and tested positive for a cancer with a low (15%) possibility for reoccurrence. He is handling all of this with such a calm and gentle patience! 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: Murphy Boy
Hi all! I'm Murphy, a Jack Russel Terrier witha little bit Pyr . I was born 5/13/2017. Let me tell you a story that only you can finish: Once upon a time, in the land of Texas, there was a young pup that was found wandering around in a town called Houston. He was sent to a shelter, and he was scared and all alone. He was sad, and he just knew that no one would want him. His fur was in such sad shape, and very skinny. The people at the shelter knew better, and named him Murphy. Time passed, for this sad pup, and no one would come to rescue him… he was coming down to his last hours, and all he could think about was how he was so scared, and didn’t want to be alone. That's when an angel came and took him from the scary place and brought him to a family where he plays with other dogs and has all the food he needs. He loves attention, he loves his crate, he knows to go to the door when he wants to go outside, and he’s a great protector! He knows to tell anyone strange to stay away! All he does now is smile ... no longer is there sadness in his eyes! He’s definitely a happy young man!” Hes got his fur back and now at a healthy weight.So now you ask yourself: “What can I do to make him have a happy ending"? Go and fill out an application to give Murphy what he really wants… his furever home! Thank You! Hi everybody just a little update on me. Well I weigh 52 lbs now Dr.Blemares says 60 lbs will be my perfect weight. I am almost there!!! plus 1/22/2018 I was neutered. So I'm ready Come Find me !!! read more

Name: Sadie
Sadie is a special little girl. She and her brother wandered onto the ranch of Good Samaritans. Both were very thin and Sadie's back leg was dangling. The family thought she had been hit by a car. Their vet X-rayed the leg, which showed she had been shot, shattering the young Pyr's leg so that the only remedy was amputation. The vet donated his service and rescuer called TGPR to help find a home. She is now recovering and getting good food at her foster's home. As for her brother? He has found a place at the ranch. She might just join him eventually! Meantime, she is quickly learning how to get around on three legs. What an inspiration she is! read more


Name: Sebastian
Sebastian is a 2 year old male Pyr mix who came to us in mid-January suffering from neglect, malnutrition, and skin damage from flea bites. The vet put him on several medications to strengthen his health, and what a difference it has made already! What a dear personality he has! He is such a puppy still, and wants to run and wrestle with the 13 year old Pyr girl at his foster house. Sebastian would LOVE to have a dog pal to play with. He probably needs to gain at least 15 pounds and will weigh about 95 pounds eventually. His coat is white, with golden highlights, so he may be a Pyr/Golden Retriever mix. He is housebroken and will actually hit the door handle to ask to go out. Look for more details as we get to know Sebastian better! read more

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 PS: I have a really long tongue! Spirit Bear would love to be out in the country somewhere where she could bark all day and nite and no one will hear her, she would still like to be able to come in when she wants read more

Name: Trinity D
Trinity D is a very smart girl. She will retrieve a ball, and yesterday I accidentally learned that she knows how to do a high 5 when you put your palm out to her! So if she can pick that up, she can learn how to go outside versus in. She loves making new people friends, and she is a big snuggler - she's a 26 lb lap dog. And going back to her smarts, she hid kibble from breakfast in her crate yesterday so she'd have a snack when she was put to bed. Lights out and all of a sudden I hear this crunching from her crate, getting her little late night snack! :) 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
