Our Adoptable Dogs

Name: Bearron

Bearron (est DOB 2/14/2015) was surrendered to TGPR by a South Texas family with 4 very young children. The had no fence and left him tied up outside without clean water or adequate food. Even with that sad start, he is the most gentle boy, even with children. We had to give him a "military" puppy cut because he was so matted. But his gorgeous coat will soon grow back. He has met the goat and chickens at his foster home. His foster mom is training him to know they are part of the family. Bearron also gets along well with the female dogs there. He is even doing pretty well with the cat! This lovable big guy will be a wonderful addition to any family, but seems especially suited to country life!


Name: Lulu

(ADOPTION PENDING: PM) Lulu and her brother, Argo, are 4 month old pups who were abandoned at the ranch of a kind couple who called TGPR. Both have "Pyr eyeliner" and double dew claws on their back legs. But they have the shorter hair of a yellow Lab and the longer ears of a hound. Whatever their background, Lulu is all about having fun! What a spunky little babe she is! Lulu's foster says her eyes are gorgeous...deep brown flecked with sapphire blue! In our first photo, it sure looks like she is winking...wonder what her secret might be!


Name: Pandia

Pandia is a badger marked 2-year old Pyr girl whose first family named her after a beautiful Greek goddess. She loves to be with people. She likes to swim in her foster family's pool, and they have even taken her for a dip in the Gulf of Mexico! She is living with another Pyr now, and they get along OK. But she doesn't like him near her food. Aside from that, they are fine together. In her original home, she respected two geriatric dogs without any issues. But Pandia really enjoys people best of all. She is happy to go on adventures with them or just lie quietly inside wherever they are, even at work! There are no children at her current neighborhood home. But Pandia loved the young children at her first country home, and we think she misses them and even the goats that lived there too. She will chase horses. But otherwise, she seems flexible enough to be a town or country girl. How neat!


Name: Raquel

Raquel is a precious 12 week old female Pyr puppy with tan badger markings on her face and double dew claws. She and her brother, Riley, were surrendered to another rescue who called TGPR knowing they would need big dog homes. Currently, she is getting comfortable at her San Antonio foster home, where the grown Pyrs there are teaching her the rules. What a doll she is!


Name: Riley

ADOPTION PENDING (M&J H) Riley is a very handsome all white Pyr pup (est.DOB 3/15/17) with double dew claws and a happy personality. Riley and his sister, Raquel, were given to TGPR by another rescue, knowing that Pyrs need "big dog" homes. He seems to like the goats at his foster's house and wags his tail at them through the fence. Judging from his paws, Riley is going to be a big boy. You couldn't ask for a better puppy for a family!


Name: Rusty

Rusty is a handsome guy with the reddish gold fur of a Golden Retriever and the face and "eyeliner" of a Great Pyrenees. He is also smaller than a full Pyrenees male, and will probably weigh about 75 pounds once his foster gets more groceries into him. Rusty fit in right away with the 2 Pyr girls and the children of his fosters. He is a sweet-natured boy who is doing very well learning to walk in a harness. He's also learning that counter-surfing is not good manners. But he's a quick study and will soon be ready for his own forever family. He is heartworm positive, but don't let that discourage you! He will be treated and rid of those dumb worms soon!


Name: Sally

Sally is a friendly 6-year-old Pyr with a gorgeous long coat which has just been shaved to eliminate bad matting. The fur had really gotten SO thick! Her owners are giving her up because she started protecting their home on the edge of a woods from possums and skunks. The owner can't stand to have those small creatures killed. Sally also tried to scare off a porcupine, but ended up with quills in her face. Aside from that, Sally is a happy girl who has lived for years with a small dog and a small child. She loves to go for walks to the downtown area of Fredericksburg, where everyone comments on how beautiful she is. Now Sally needs a loving home in less rural setting without possums or where her dislike of small varmints will welcomed! If you are looking for a grown Pyr who has been loved, consider Sally!


Name: Savage Thunder

Savage Thunder is a big, thickly furred, blocky-headed full Pyr male who turns 3 years old in July 2017. He has amazing "eyeliner" and badger markings. Did you ever see the Disney movie "Santa Paws"? Savage comes from that line of puppies. No wonder he is such a magnificent guy. In spite of his name, Savage is really a big, lovable 'pup' who wants to play and loves children. He has been living a rather confined life in a large dog run attached to his own cottage. But he is happiest when the gate opens and he can go for a walk or trot around the neighborhood to sniff and explore. He could use some leash training but he will be a happy student! Savage Thunder's roommate is the Pyr girl, Dream Walker, another of the Santa Paws dogs. If you are looking for an imposing, but lovable big boy, Savage is the dog for you!


Name: White Cloud

White Cloud is a block-headed gorgeous full male Pyr with a thick white coat. He will turn 3 years old in August 2017. Did you ever see the Disney movie "Santa Paws"? White Cloud comes from that beautiful line of AKC Pyrs. He is a tad muddy in these photos because he has been living in a large dog run for the past year. He's going to the groomer this week. But Cloud doesn't care! He's a country guy, who enjoys watching the roosters that live on the other side of the wire from him. One flew into his side one night, and boy was Cloud surprised. But he didn't hurt the flustered bird and allowed his owner to pickup the unexpected visitor and put him back on the "rooster side". Like his friends Rain, Savage, and Dream, Cloud is looking forward to a home where he can have more room and a family of his own. He loves his owner and her son, but hey! Life is all about new adventures!
