Name: Angel Grace
My name is Angel Grace. I was born 10/16. I was born on a farm and have been around all kinds of animals and am well behaved. Sadly my family had to leave their home very abruptly and the new landlord does not like a barking dog!!They had no chance and there were tears but they brought me to TGPR who has promised to find me a new home and a new family to call my own. I do well around chickens, cats, and children. I am friendly and know my commands. I am young and will run if I have the chance so a secure fence line is essential. Might I work in your home? read more

 

Name: Daphne di Italia
Hi! My name is Daphne, and Iím a 2 year old Great Pyrenees/Shepherd mix lady. Iím looking for that furever home, where I can feel safe and protected from those scary storms! This past May, I was out on a walk-a-bout,(as all us Pyrs do!) and there were storms, and I had nowhere to go! I found a garage and the door was open, so I high-tailed it in there, and found a place to hide. The very nice people found me hiding, and let me stay. I made lots of friends in the neighborhood. Iíd get my exercise by taking walks with some nice ladies, and then Iíd go visiting. But I always would go back to that nice garage at night. Another storm came, and when the thunder started, it scared me, and I ran off. While trying to get away from the storm, I got myself arrested! But the police was nice, and took me to a shelter. I was bailed out by the nice people who let me sleep in the garage. I caught a cough from the shelter, and had to stay away from the other pups. When I was better, I got to meet and play with the other pups; itís so nice to have friends!I still donít like loud noises like thunder, and feel confined in tight spaces. I donít like to go for rides, (reminds me too much of getting arrested!) Iím very stubborn, and if you want me to do something, and I donít feel like it, Iíll just lie down! Iím learning house manners. I stay off the furniture, and donít potty in the house! I know how to do some tricks also! I can "sit", ďlay downĒ, and ďgo to bedĒ. Iím getting to like my crate, where my bed is. I know how to walk on a leash. When itís time to eat, Iím a bit greedy. I donít like to share my food or my toys. They are mine! I love kids, other pups, and to be scratched and loved on. My fosters say Iím calm, sweet, and very loving. Iím a great protector, and will let you know if anyone is around at night! I also will keep all those dangerous bunnies away, and if needed, I will fly over a 4-foot fence to chase them off. So thatís my story, if you need to know any more, please ask! Thanks for reading my story! Daphne! read more

 

Name: Elvis
Hi, Iím Elvis, and "Are you lonesome tonight?" Well I want to be ďYour Hound Dog!Ē Iím a four-month old Anatolian/Pyr boy! My mommy is a Pyr, and my dad's an Anatolian/Pyr mix. I was born about June 1st. Let me tell you a story: My mommy and daddy live in a nice house, with nice people. Well, mommy and daddy decided to have some kiddies, and here we are: me, my brother and my sister. But no one let the people there know, so they were sure surprised! It felt like a "Heartbreak Hotel", and we were "All Shook Up!" They didnít want to keep us, and mommy and daddy, so they let this nice rescue know about us, and we went to stay in a nice house, with other pups, and we have so much fun! I love to run and play with them! I have double dews: I donít know what that means, but everyone sure likes to know it! Iím very friendly; Iím a bit nosy and like to check things out. I don't have "A Suspicious Mind", I love people! Iím a "Hunk-a Hunk-a Burning Love!"; Iíll snuggle with you and watch TV with you! One of my favorite shows is ďFuturamaĒ, itís so funny! When I first come in from playing outside, I get a bit excited because I want to make sure Iím not missing anything. I do calm down afterwards. I have good house manners, and I know to let you know when I need to go outside, or if you have a "Doggie Door" or a screen door, I'll let myself out! I have good food manners, I know how to share my meal! When its bed time, and my foster mom tells me "It's bed time" I know to go into my crate to sleep all by myself! It makes me feel safe and warm. The people say I'm "crate trained". Iím also learning how to walk on a leash. So just give me a bone or two to chew on, play with me, and give me a place to run, and Iíll be your loving, furever pal! I sure want to be "Stuck on You!" So if you would like to know more about me, just go and ask about me! "It's Now or Never!" You can also check on my brother and sister, and many other pups looking for their furever homes! TCB, Baby! Later, Elvis! read more

Name: Flynn
(ADOPTION PENDING N.C.)Hi everyone! My name is Flynn. I was born approx 4/2015 which make me a 2 year old Great Pyrenees, Whoís a very happy guy, in a very happy place in my life right now! It was a bit sketchy at first, but every day itís better and better! Sit down, and let me tell ya all about it! I was on a wandering tour of Terrell, just a-seeiní all the sights that Terrell has to offer, and I was being given some great meals by a friendly lady. I continued my sight-seeing tour, and got hurt. I went back to the nice lady, and she got me to a doctor, who was so nice and helpful! She took care of my injuries, and ďfixedĒ me (a nice way to say she neutered me!) The nice lady who helped me out called this great rescue, and I was given a wonderful home with some kitties, another pyr pup, and a little girl! We have so much fun together! I love to play with the pup and the little girl! The cats are funny: I try to be a friend to them, and all they want to do is play chase! I love attention, and will snuggle with you if you let me! I went to visit a home, and I learned how much I love treats! The people there were so nice to me; they gave me LOTS of petting and treats, and they kept saying how nice and friendly I was! I couldnít quit smiling! It was SO nice to have people say I was a ďvery good boy!Ē I have good house manners. I stay off the furniture, know to do my potty business outside, and am learning to use a crate. Iíll do some tricks for you also! (If I feel like it!) I know how to ďsitĒ and ďlay downĒ. Iím also learning how to walk with you on a leash. Iíd prefer to not be on one, but if thatís what it takes to live with you, Iíll learn! Iím not sure about water spraying out of a hose. I didnít like it when my foster mom tried to rinse off my leg. I prefer to eat by myself also, because I had to scavenge to find my meals! So if you pick me to be your furever friend, you definitely wonít regret it! Flynn! read more

MEDICAL HOLD My name is Indie and I am a little squirt! Turns out I have a little medical issue that TGPR is really working hard to cure!! The Doctors don't know why but my kidneys aren't working properly. While things are improving and I feel a LOT better, I am not out of the woods yet. My foster says that despite my health issues I am playful loving and sweet. Do you think you could take me on? I promise I am a good good girl. read more

 

Name: Jeanette
(ADOPTION PENDING K.P.)Jeannie is definitely an alpha personality so she would thrive with other dogs that are more submissive in nature. She loves kids, and her people really are her main loves. Her environment with her last family created a social behavior in her so that she needs time to adjust to meeting new dogs. She seems to show more separation anxiety when left in the crate. When her people leave the house, she will cry. But after the first few days here, she's had the run of the house with the rest of my crew and does fine. Definitely gate off the kitchen because she's a counter-surfer and will sneak anything edible she can find! She is the best companion!! She follows you around the house, lays down and falls asleep if you're in the same spot for more than a minute. She really is a doll. read more

When out one time, I met a nice boy, and ended up a little bit pregnant! After me babies, found homes, the people there could not keep me, so they found me a very nice lady to foster me, until I get lucky and find my very own furever home! My foster mom has been making sure Iím putting on my before puppy weight, and is giving me all the love and attention I can handle! Iím VERY sweet and gentle, and I appreciate the privilege of having a nice home with caring people, and show it!

Iím happy, because lifeís so wonderful! Let me tell you all about me: I was born on a farm, with 9 other brothers and sisters. The farmer was able to find homes for all of us, and my sister Thelma and me went to a very nice lady who unfortunately was unable to care for us properly, and she wanted to make sure we had all the chances to succeed. So she asked her daughter to take us to our foster home. Now, we get to run, play, and just have fun with the family and all the pups there!

Iím still learning not to potty in your house! If you think you would like to find out more about me, and maybe want to make me a furever friend, just got to INFO@TXPYRS.ORG, and ask about me! Bye! read more

 

Name: Maggie

They took her to an ER vet for immediate care. Attempts to find her family failed. The fosters took in this brave seven year old girl and eventually contacted TGPR, knowing she needed expert surgery.

Mommy and daddy thought it would be nice to have a couple of kids, and yep, here we are! But they didnít check with the people they lived with first: Boy, were they sure surprised!

Name: Valera
Hi! Iím a 6 Ĺ year young Pyr lady, and Iím looking for that VERY SPECIAL furever home! My name is Valera! Sure is a pretty name, donít you agree? In the Great Pyrenees language; it means ďBeautiful, Intelligent Queen!Ē My story is a common story, told by Pyrs everywhere: Once upon a time, I went on a walk, to survey my PyrdomÖ I never knew it was SO LARGE!!! I walked and walkedÖ to make a long story short, a wonderful lady saw me walking, and knew I was out of my realm, so she picked me up and took me to a doggie doctor. So this nice vet gave me a checkup, and looked for a thing called a ďmicrochipĒ, but couldnít find one. What was I going to do? The nice lady who picked me up knew of a rescue, where beautiful mature ladies like me could rest, get lots of loviní, and good food! So she took me to a family, to stay with, until I find that special place to call my own. I guess if I told you some things about me, it would help in making you want me as your furever family member: Iím a very chilled out girl! Kids are great! I just love Ďem! I like other dogs; itís nice to have a friend or 2! We can lie around and chat about different things like: which collars are prettier, how to keep our beautiful coat white and fluffyÖ Iím ok with chickens and cats around. I will be a shadow to you, so you wonít forget to give me my daily dose of love! This beautiful home Iím at has a super nice spot in the hallway, so I can get my beauty rest. A beautiful queen must look her best at all times! I have impeccable inside manners! I know not to do my ďbusinessĒ in the house! I will make sure you know when I want to go outside or come back in. I am good with walks on a leash! And if you want a companion for rides in the car I love rides! I get all kinds of attention! I know how to use a crate and Iím pretty quiet. (A queen doesnít make a loud fuss!) So to bring this story to a close, I would like a furever home where I can continue to be treated like the queen I am, and get lots of attention and love! Thanks!
