Name: Bearron
MEDICAL HOLD 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! He recently broke his leg, but has had surgery and will soon be good as new! 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: Chase
(ADOPTION PENDING J.K) 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 live 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. We think he's part Golden Retriever, and he's on the small side for a male Pyrenees. Chase is on medical hold for a little bit while he recovers from surgery. We found a lump on his chest recently, and at the recommendation of the vet, we had it removed. He's recovering nicely so far, and will be available for adoption once he's healed up. read more

 

Name: Chloe
(MEDICAL HOLD) Meet Ms. Chloe! She's a wonderful girl! Sweet, loves all people and dogs. SUPER good with kids. She is VERY laid back and calm. Her former family made the very difficult decision to rehome her because of their career - BOTH of them are in the military and had been sent to training in different states! It was getting hard on Chloe to be left behind, and moved around. This girl is calm and mellow. She's determined and lovely, snuggly and sweet! She settled into her foster home nicely, but her health took a brief turn. She's stable now, but on medical hold while her body adjusts to her new medication regime. 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: DAX
(ADOPTION PENDING S.E.)DAX - Awaiting info from Foster....stay turned 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: Ivy
More info coming soon....Sweet female approx. 3 years old. read more

 

Name: Jerry
Jerry is a big, badger-faced 2 year old who was found wandering with his buddy Tom. They were hungry, scared, and loaded with Gulf Coast ticks. It appeared the boys had been outside dogs, as they were nervous about going inside at first. But in just a couple days, Jerry showed what an affectionate guy he is! He is getting along very well with his foster's two dogs and several cats. He still likes to bark at "things that go bump in the night", but he is learning that it's OK to do his patrolling on the "day shift" instead of at night. This handsome boy seems to be very confident and is adapting quickly to a happy and healthy environment! More to come soon! Jerry likes attention from kids and is good with other dogs and horses. read more

 

Name: Jolie
Hi I am Jolie. A Collie/Pyr cross 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. This whole Harvey thing is a bit daunting and frightening for me as well. I am great with people and kids. I get along with some dogs, as long as they know I am in charge. The boys are not my fav though as they tend to think they are in charge. Honestly though, I would like to be the only dog because I want all the attention! Now that I am out and away from Harvey, I hope I can find a family soon. Preferably with nobody in the house named Harvey. Just kidding. Even foster would be great! I had to go into boarding because of all the flooding and such. Update: Jolie is a very sweet girl who is starving for attention. She's a wonderful snuggler and just a sweet lovebug! She does have more of a border collie personality and would do best in an active home, with a job. Perhaps agility or even working as a herding dog! She needs a little training, but she's EXTREMELY intelligent and will make a FANTASTIC dog for someone looking for a fluffy, smart companion. read more

 

Name: Jordan
(medical hold) until she has recovered from spay surgery. Jordan came from a shelter down in San Angelo, TX. She's new to TGPR, but is in foster care now. Thus far she is good with kids, other dogs and ignores cats. Presently a little on the thin side for her small frame. Housebroken is yet to be confirmed. read more

 

Name: Lilah
Lilah is a calm 1 year-old snugglebug who loves to be around people. She also enjoys roaming in the backyard looking for squirrels to chase. Lilah likes playing with calm dogs, she is cat tested and is wonderful with children. Excellent on leash as well! 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
(ADOPTION PENDING L.S.)Maximus is a special guy, with some special needs. He's only about 17 months old, but in his first 11 months of life, this poor guy had FIVE different homes, with FIVE different families. Due to his upbringing, he is understandably insecure. With Maximus havening bounced around so much, his adjustment period to a new environment can take upward of two months for him to really adjust to his new environment and settle in with his people, and can take a little longer for him to really relax and settle in. We need to be honest. His insecurities present themselves in the form of ... well... marking. He seems to feel the need to remind you, and everyone else, that he lives here now. What that means, is he'll need to stay in a belly band (aka doggy diaper for boys) whenever he's unsupervised for the first weeks or even months. Once he's settled and starts to feel confident in his new home, it does stop. Maximus really thrives with routine and a regular schedule. It helps him feel secure. Now for the good parts. Maximus is SO FUNNY and smart!. He's great with other dogs, loves to chase and wrestle and play. He plays gently with smaller dogs, and rough houses with the big boys. He's taught two of the resident Pyr at his foster home how to play like dogs, which has been amazing to see. If the other dogs, who are lower energy than he, don't feel like playing? No problem! He'll toss a ball or stuffed toy and chase after it, entertaining himself! He's smart and loving and a big goofball. He's been good with kids of all ages, though he should be supervised with the little ones. Did we mention he's almost 90 lbs of puppy? He sleeps upside down with his feet up on the wall or on the foot of the bed. He trained himself to eat meals in his crate. He has put himself in the crate every single mealtime since. He even goes in there whenever the treat bag gets picked up! Maximus is a special guy. He's WONDERFUL, if he's given enough time to adjust. He needs consistent, reliabl 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: Midas
(ADOPTION PENDING M.B.) Meet Midas! Poor guy has had it RUFF! Get it?! Good with dogs and cats and kids - oh my! He's on medical hold while he's healing up and gaining weight. He's heartworm positive, so going through treatment for that as well. Watch for updates! Want to help with his care? You can donate on the website, and mention his name! Midas (and TGPR) will very much appreciate it! read more

 

Name: Monte Montgomery
Hi my name is Monty Montgomery, I was found in a shelter but TGPR hooked me up with a great foster. I am about 1 year of age, still figuring out the housebreaking thing cause I spent allot of time outside before being taken to the shelter. I like kids, dogs and cats. I am easy going in nature, but could use some training and a loving family. I am not a fan of crates but I do walk well on a leash and love to play with toys and wrassle with other dogs. read more

 

Name: Remie
Hi, my name is Remie! I'm a GP/Lab mix, about 9 months old. My foster found me as a stray, but she is working more and more and has realized that TGPR can find me a better fur-ever home. I am still a puppy and have got a lot to learn, but I love to play with other dogs. Big aggressive dogs scare me, but little dogs are pretty rad. I love going for walks and to the dog park. They say I am a very well natured, happy go lucky. Plus I love hugs and any affection you are willing to give. read more

 

Name: Roman
(Medical Hold) My name is Roman and about a year old. Yes...I'm still a puppy! I had a rough year but my luck seems to be turning round. I've got a really nice foster family now. Oh well, I am recouping here from losing a little too much weight and getting treatment for heart worm during too much time spending outside without meds to protect me. But I am eating more, and have put on more weight now. I am scheduled to be neutered soon. I love to be around your family. Love those hugs and cuddles too. I get along with all humans and pets. I'm also crate, leash and house trained, although still working on my basic commands. My foster is working with me on this! Will you be my pyrfect family? read more

 

Name: Shomer
(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: Tom
Tom is a year old male Pyr who was found wandering with his buddy, Jerry, after Hurricane Harvey. Both dogs were scared, hungry, and loaded with coastal ticks. A TGPR volunteer heard about them and went to evaluate them at their country shelter. They were almost out of time, so she "adopted them" and called us for help. At first, Tom was very shy and scared to even come inside. But as you can see from the photos, he is certainly getting used to house life. Happily, in spite of his uncertain past, Tom is great with other dogs and even cats! He is also heartworm negative! What a sweet guy! This guy is very friendly and loves attention from children, he is also good with other dogs and horses. read more

 

Name: Tova
Tova is a name which can either be an adjective meaning "good", "pleasant" or "better" in the feminine form, or a noun, meaning "kindness". "For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it." She is a very sweet girl. Extremely friendly and people oriented. She was recently shaved due to a skin condition, but her coat will be growing back in no time. Tova has been missing her Human Mom who recently passed away suddenly. Updated note from her foster as of 09/12/17: Tova is a bubbly, friendly, happy pup who loves people and other dogs. She is big enough to play rough with my resident pyr, but gentle enough to play with my small, 12-year-old tripod. She LOVES to spend her time around people and would thrive with someone who can take her to the office or work from home. We are working on her loose-leash walking, and with the help of a prong collar, she is improving quickly. She is not a fan of sharing food but does fine if she is fed separately. She has grown so much in the time that she's been in a foster home and will shine being in a family who can give her the love and devotion that she deserves. If you are looking for an awesome dog to take with you to the office, to go shopping with at Home Depot, or just to hang out with at home, Tova's your gal. read more
