Adoptable Dogs

Austin and Surrounding Counties

All of the dogs shown on this page are available for adoption through the Texas Great Pyrenees Rescue.


Name: Absinthe (aka Toot)
Absinthe - aka Abbi - is a sweet, determined, wonderful girl. Shy and fearful at first, she has really warmed up. She loves to spend time outside and would prefer live with a doggy companion to wrestle and play with. She is a little strong willed (read, alpha tendencies) which will be successfully managed with regular training. She's going to be GORGEOUS. Her unique coloring and her wonderful disposition makes her one of a kind. She will be a lot of fun! read more


Name: Alula
Alula and her sister Ayla were surrendered to a shelter due to financial difficulty. Both girls had mange and intestinal parasites and are under weight. TGPR has had them vetted and they are well on their way to recovery! Sweet and a little shy, with no idea what to do with a leash, Alula is quick to warm up, and will make a WONDERFUL companion dog. She has mostly been an outside dog, but will likely adjust to the good life (and air conditioning) in no time! She's a gorgeous girl! Get your app in... she won't be with us long! read more


Name: Alya
Ayla and her sister Alula are going to be GORGEOUS. Surrendered to a shelter due to financial issues, this girl had mange and intestinal parasites. She's VERY sweet, and fun. She appears to have been raised mostly outdoors but should adjust to the good life of a house pet with no issues. These girls are going to be BIG and beautiful... just stellar! (get it? she's named for as star... :) read more


Name: AnnaBelle
Ms. AnnaBelle was found as a stray, wandering around, EXTREMELY thin and in need of a good brushing. She is a very sweet girl, who will need some work on her people skills - she wants to climb everyone for HUGE HUGS! Which isn't always welcome. Foster is going to work on that jumping habit, and get some meat on her bones. She'll be available for adoption after 6/05 - once she's seen our vet and got a clean bill of health. She has been tested with chickens and she was really good! Just ignored them. read more


Name: Bacon
Have you EVER seen anything so CUTE?? Bacon is a little goober. We were told he was the runt of the litter, but he seems to be holding his own. He's often found snoozing with his cute little tongue sticking out. Nicknamed "sir grunts a lot" as he makes such adorable noise. He came in with sister Pork Chop and mom Bessie. We will accept deposit hold starting 7/02 and he will be ready to go to his forever home on 7/16. read more


Name: Bessie
Ms. Bessie has come to us, surrendered by her owner. They had to move unexpectedly and couldn't find a rental friendly to large dogs. She was surrendered with her boyfriend Grizzly, and two young puppies, Bacon and Pork Chop. Once the puppies are fully weaned and she has been spayed, she will be ready to find her forever home! She's a sweet girl, who needs a little help with socializing. Good with dogs, but warms up slowly to new people. She's just BEAUTIFUL! 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! She had to have knee surgery, and is right as rain now! All healed up. This girl is a ROCKSTAR! 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: Cooper
New to TGPR - stay tuned! read more


Name: Fern
Fern is a super sweet girl, who just loves to snuggle. Good with kids and other dogs, she is just hanging out, enjoying the good life, while waiting for her forever home. She would do best with another doggy friend in the home to help with her confidence and for fun play. She does have some seasonal, environmental allergies (who doesn't?!). This girl is really something special! read more


Name: Frankie 2
(ADOPTION PENDING A.S.) Frankie is the most mellow little girl. Good with other dogs and children of all ages. She's a lover, napper, snuggler! A favorite with her foster family. read more


Name: Hal
Hal is the sweetest boy even though he has been through some tough times. He was found walking the streets of San Antonio, overheated, malnourished, and flea infested. He was taken to the shelter and due to overcrowding was scheduled to be euthanized. Luckily a team of volunteers were able to tag and rescue him and place Hal in foster care. He is estimated to be around 6 years old. He has such a calm demeanor that even the very dominant male at his foster home accepted him right away. The shelter guessed he might have Pyr in him, but we think it's a small part...possibly a blend with Aussie and Anatolian? Right now, his coat is in sad shape, but it will be a beautiful brown, with gray markings as he heals. He is very friendly with other dogs and cats, and children. Hal has a stunning pair of eyes, one blue and one brown, and will remain on the smaller side weighing under 75 pounds. Please submit an application and come meet him! read more


Name: Isabel
Isabel is a sweet, but nervous girl. She takes a few minutes to adjust to new people. Good with kids, other dogs and cats. She seems to be house trained as well. She's enjoying the good life, sleeping upside down on the couch and loving the snuggles. New to TGPR in late May, 2018, we are getting to know her and will post more as we learn! read more


Name: Jagger
Meet Jagger! This boy is ADORABLE! He's good with kids, big and small, and good with small dogs. He will need proper introduction to bigger dogs, as he's a little insecure when he's outweighed. He lives in the vicinity of a cat, but hasn't been face to face with him, so we can't say for sure how he would do. Jagger is mellow, but mildly fearful of loud noises (fireworks are scary!). If you'd like to meet Jagger, get your app in! He's about an hour from Austin. read more


Name: Jolene
Meet Jolene! According to her foster, she's perfect! Good with kids and other dogs, she's pretty wonderful. Loving and easy, she's just about PYRfect! read more


Name: Juniper
I was found as a stray and these nice folks at TGPR helped me out with removing a large tumor. I'm better now and gaining weight. I am a super mellow gal who enjoys taking naps with my friend the cat on a nice shady porch or in the house by your feet. I really enjoy being a house pet. read more


Name: Juno
Doesn't Juno have the best face?? Born 2016, her original owner moved into an apartment and couldn't take her along. She was moved to a friend's home, where she's done well. Unfortunately, she is proving too much for an elderly member of the family and is now looking for her forever family. She's good with kids, although she loves to jump up for hugs, so bigger kiddos will be better. She loves to play, higher energy for a Pyrenees, so she'd do well as a hiking buddy. Working on obedience training now, and leash manners still need work, but she's smart and willing, so that should go smoothly. This girl has never met a dog she didn't love. She is just lovely! And is ready to get started on the next chapter in life. read more


Name: KATO
Kato is a people-friendly, dog-friendly, and cat-friendly "gentle giant" whose family was not able take him when they moved out of state. He loves attention--especially belly rubs, but any kind of petting and loving--which he would much rather have than the finest food. If you stop too soon, he will reach out to you with a giant paw and encourage you to continue. He is about 6-7 years old, neutered, chipped, and up to date on all shots and his ProHeart6 injection. Kato has a beautiful light and darker tan coat, and he has the classic Pyr double dew claws. More important, Kato is a lovely animal being who needs a loving family and will surely be a loving companion. Kato apparently has spent most of his life outside, though he would love to spend most of his time inside. We don't know if he is totally house-trained, but after being inside for several hours he always answered nature's calls outdoors. Kato is a 124-pound Gentle Giant who nuzzles our cat and is gentle with everyone, though he occasionally barks at people unexpectedly walking in the alley behind his house. He and his yard mate, a high energy black Labrakita, get along well. When he's not being petted Kato enjoys lying in the sun watching the birds and squirrels. read more


Name: Logan
Logan is a handsome and affectionate 2-year old boy who was found as a stray. We believe he may be a Pyr/Golden Retriever mix because of the gorgeous golden highlights in his fur. Logan has been a perfect dog at two foster homes: one where he lived with two adults and a senior Pyr female and his current home which is a family with four older children. He is a big boy who currently weighs 115 lbs. Like many Pyrs, he can be a bit shy at first. It takes him a little while to warm up to new people, which is common for Pyrs. He does very well in public and has been patient with strangers. Logan loves going for walks and is very good on the leash. He has not shown any food aggression. He gets along really well with female dogs (and most males) and loves to play. He is a little TOO curious about cats! He LOVES to be brushed, does very well with baths, and also loves chasing a ball around! In short, Logan is a big, lovable, goofy boy who will be an awesome lifetime companion for the right adopter! We are looking for a home with older children rather than toddlers. 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: Naomi
Ms. Naomi is a shy, loving lady. She came to us with a litter of 6 month old puppies. It appears they have been on their own for quite some time. She's a very sweet girl, who needs someone to show her just how good the home life can be. If that's you, get your application in! She will be available after she is spayed. read more


Name: Nova
Just look at this face!! This girl is FLASHY! She came to us from a shelter with her mom and siblings. We get the impression that they haven't been handled much. This girl is a bit nervous being handled and needs someone patient and calm to help her learn to trust. We suggest older kids only, who understand that she's been through a lot. Its obvious to us that she wants to trust, but it will take time and kindness. read more


Name: Nutmeg
Nutmeg was found as a stray wandering the countryside, and turned over to a shelter. Looking at this girl, we cannot understand why she wasn't claimed! The shelter was full, so they asked us to help. This lovely girl is so very sweet. And just look at that face! She is a mix (no idea what) and looks like she may be on the smaller side when she's done growing. GORGEOUS girl! Won't you give her a forever home? read more


Name: Oso aka Atlas
Oso, now known as Atlas, was found in a field bleeding from a gunshot wound and broken leg on Easter Sunday. His former owner couldn't afford the surgery, and, prioritizing Oso's best interest, surrendered him to TGPR. He has since had surgery and is recovering nicely. He still has quite a noticeable limp, but his surgeon thinks that will resolve itself in time. He is young, and had never been inside a home before. He's now crate and house trained. He does like to jump up and give hugs (foster has been working on this with limited success so far). He does have resource guarding issues, but as long as there aren't high value treats or food around, he is good with other dogs. He does like to chew and destroy stuffed toys. He's a hugger and a wrester. A very popular guy, everywhere he goes. Atlas is available for adoption. No small kids, and he is a couch potato. He has "graduated" from physical therapy and is cleared for any activity. Walks will need to be gradually increased in distance while he's still recovering. He does still have a limp which may never go away. read more


Name: Pierre
(ADOPTION PENDING S.A.) Pierre is a very handsome, big 18-month old boy (estimated DOB June 2016) who joined the TGPR family in Feb 2018. He doesn't know how big he is and just wants to play like a smaller dog. The three big dogs at his foster home have been quite accepting, and he is loving the large shady yard to sniff around. There are even horses in the paddock next door! read more


Name: Pork Chop
Pork Chop came to us, surrendered with mom Bessie, dad Grizzly, and brother Bacon. Their former owner had to move unexpectedly, and transferred the family to TGPR instead of having to place them in a shelter. Pork Chop is SO CUTE and friendly. She's social and will make a wonderful companion dog! We will accept deposit on 07/02 and she will be ready to go home 7/16. read more


Name: Rainman
Hi! Iím Rainman. I am between 2- 3 years old and weigh about 90 lbs.TGPR thinks I have some Labrador in me as well as Pyr. Iím good off-leash, and come when called. Iím a quick learner and a sensitive pup. So please donít talk to me sternly. Iím up to date on all my vaccinations, I donít have those nasty Heartworms, I have a thing called a ďmicrochipĒ, and a part of me isnít there anymore? Where did they go? (Neutered) Before coming to my TGPR foster family, I'd lived outside all of my life! My fosters have chickens and goats, and I do OK with them. But I love being with people most of all, especially my foster's grandchildren. So I am learning to be an inside dog too. If you are looking for a dog who will follow you around your property and love your family, please come meet me! read more


Name: Sierra
Sierra is a gentle 9 year old Pyr with shorter hair...possibly a Lab mix. She was given up by her family because a family member developed an allergy. She has been the beloved friend of a 7 year old boy (and all his buddies). She has lived in harmony with another large dog. Sierra loves to go for walks and is healthy and heartworm negative. She is at that stage of life when a good bone and a snuggle are very appealing! 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


Name: Whisper
Whisper: Special Needs Dog (Deaf, low thyroid) Ms. Whisper has had a bumpy few years, but has handled it with dignity and love. She's super snuggly and easy going. She will let you know when she wants some love, and spends a lot of time finding silly, small corners to nap in. She's a toy hoarder, and a lap dog. Good with dogs and cats. As an older girl, she is low key, and doesn't spend much time playing or running around. If you're looking for a loving companion to snuggle up with, this may be your girl! Warning: she snores like a freight train! read more


Name: Winter Sky
Sky came to us from a shelter where she came in limping due to a dislocated hip. TGPR took her in and did surgery (FHO) to permanently correct this problem. As a senior dog she she is very calm, doesn't jump on people, loves her walks, and get's along fine with everyone. She is also a quiet dog that doesn't bark. read more


Name: Yeti
Y'all. Just LOOK at this guy! Big and beautiful, he's also mellow and easy going. He's good on a leash. Good with kids, dogs AND cats! House trained. Crate trained. This is every Pyr family's dream dog! read more


Name: Ziggy 2
Meet Ziggy! New to TGPR (June 2018), he was found as a stray and picked up by the local animal shelter. He had a "service dog" tag on his collar, but no microchip or ID tag. Shockingly, no one came to claim him! Ziggy is super mellow and very easy going. Good with other dogs, unreactive to cats. Doesn't bark much, and is just a lover! He's on the smaller size for a Pyr, which we call a "pocket pyr". He may indeed make for a good service animal, or just a lovely, wonderful companion! read more
