Name: BJ (Duke)
Duke is a year old male Pyr who was brought to the Austin Animal Center with a broken back leg. The shelter ordered a surgical repair and after three weeks, Duke is preparing to leave the shelter for his foster home. He is now putting a bit of weight on the leg, but he won't be ready to really walk or play until mid-December 2017. In spite of his injury, Duke met our volunteer with kisses and a wagging tail. More information on him soon. read more


Name: Cactus Rose
Meet Cactus Rose (aka Rosie)! Approximate DOB January 2017. Rescued from a shelter in west Texas, she comes to us SUPER friendly and people oriented. She is good taking baths, playful, and a big lapdog! Dog social. We haven't introduced her to the resident cats yet, but that's coming. This sweet girl loves the comforts of home! Like many Pyrs, she cannot be trusted yet off-leash, as there is simply too much to explore in her fosters' woodsy acreage. Coming from a situation where food wasn't always plentiful, she does tend to guard her bowl. But her foster is working on that and we know this smart girl will "get it". . Overall, Rose is a total lovebug just waiting for her forever family! read more


Name: Chase
(ADOPTION PENDING A.D.)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. read more


Name: Chloe
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: 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: DAX
(ADOPTION PENDING S.E.)DAX - Awaiting info from Foster....stay turned read more


Name: Denali
This beautiful boy has never met a stranger! He's so friendly and attracts attention everywhere. His fur is a little on the shorter side, making maintenance easier than your standard Pyr. He's been good on a leash, is dog and kid friendly. Get your apps in soon! He won't be with us long! 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: Fern
I am a super sweet girl with a lot of love to give. I am good with other dogs and children. I also live with rabbits so it is thought I would also do well with cats. Who wants to give me a nice comfy sofa to sleep on and a lap to rest my beautiful head. read more


Name: Glacier
Glacier is the sweetest boy! He is so lovable and just loves to be around you. He is just a little over a year old. Glacier is House, Leash and Crate Trained! He has double dew claws on both his hind legs. He weighs about 61 lbs but his foster is working on putting on a little more weight on him. He is doing very well and had adjusted very quickly. He is neutered and up-to-date with all his shots. Glacier is also Heartworm Negative. He loves car rides(calm as he can be) and gets along with everyone + dogs. He does so great with kids! He is definitely an inside dog as he loves being with the entire family. He is so calm and gentle but at times would love to play with you too! Will you be his pyrfect family? read more


Name: Ivy
I am a super sweet female approximately 3 years old looking for a nice place to call home. I am good with other dogs and kids. I also live with rabbits in harmony so it is believed I will do well with cats. Seeking forever family with lots of love to give. read more


Name: Jerry
(Adoption Pending B.M.) 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: Lazarus
Laz is new to TGPR. DOB is estimated to be Nov 2015. He is a lapdog, learning about a leash and how to be a respectable companion. His foster says he's very friendly and dog social, but unsure about house training at this time. We will update as we learn more about him! He will be available for adoption as soon as we get him neutered. 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: 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: Millie
(ON HOLD) Millie: Diminutive of Mildred: Millicent From the Old English meaning "gentle strength" Found as a stray, Millie appeared to be overwhelmed by all of the chaos that comes with shelter life. She was very shut down and didn't interact much with anyone. Now that she's had some time to decompress, we have found it to be a bit more significant that that. We will never know her history, but it's quite evident that she has been through the ringer. She runs off when anyone gets too close, and cowers when she's touched. Don't worry to much about her though. Her foster is giving her all of the time and space she needs. She reports that each day there are noticeable improvements and Ms. Millie is now spending most of her time in the same room as foster mom, keeping an eye on her. She's relaxing and starting to "dog" - meaning, she's located the super comfy beds around the house and is not afraid to snooze anywhere the mood strikes. She has integrated nicely with the foster's pack and the only issues so far seem to be resource guarding... and given what we suspect about her past... we don't really blame her. Watch for regular updates on Facebook! read more


Name: Monte Montgomery
Hi!! My new name is "Monty Montgomery".   After Hurricane HARVEY, I found my way to a shelter outside of Houston. If only you knew what all I have been through, before and after that terrible storm. My fosters can tell that I am very grateful to be with humans. I respond to everything human especially -touch and kindness and particularly like being in the company of humans. I have lived outside most of my life and had to figure out this inside/outside but have not had anymore accidents and now I love the indoors and putting my head on human laps.   I am small, just 80 lbs and very blonde.  My folks were Great Pyrenees and lab and I am just one (1) year old. I love all my fellow canines and all kinds of humans from children to seniors. I love to play with my foster's other pry and my new toys and chewing on bones. I am very playful since I am basically a puppy and might be call frisky sometimes more lab and then more pyr.  I can't wait to have my very own family to love! read more


Name: Remie
Hi, my name is Remie! I'm a Great Pyrenees mix, born in late 2016. My last mom 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. I love going for walks and to the dog park. They say I am a very well natured, happy go lucky girl. Plus I love hugs and any affection you are willing to give. read more


Name: Salty
Salty is a very large Great Pyrenees male (over 130 lbs) who has grown up with a family including two boys and horses in the back yard. As the boys grew older, there was less time for Salty, so his family has asked us to find him a home where he can get all the time he deserves. This is a true gentle giant, who is very gentle with his people. He does bark at night to keep away things that don't belong in the yard. His family tells us that he gets along with all the dogs he's met, but he does like to be in charge. He is not a fan of cats... But horses are OK. More to come as we get to know him better! 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
(Adoption Pending B.M.) 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: Trinity
Ms. Trinity is a senior girl, rescued from a shelter in west Texas. She was found wandering, but no one came forward to claim her. She's calm, friendly and just a wonderful lady! Loves the comforts of a soft bed, and the occasional walk. She will make a grand companion for anyone! read more
