Pets living in BHS Foster Homes - Foster Families Save Lives!

HARRIS

This little guy was taken to a high-kill facility after having suffered trauma to his hips and back legs.  He was barely two months old and already homeless, injured, and in an animal control facility!!  No situation for a precious little guy like Harris, so Baytown Humane pulled him from the euthanasia list.

 As it turned out, no surgery was needed!  Pain meds and restricted activity was the prescribed method of healing.   So, NOW, little Harris as fully recovered from his injuries (with no evidence of it ever having happened) and he has been vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped.

 His personality is absolutely irresistible.  Harris is a young dog with an old soul... He is playful with his roomies, but an absolute cuddle bug with his humans.  He likes to sleep right under your chin and at about 8 pounds, he's just the right size for that.  His Foster Father says that Harris is noticeably intelligent, good with the cats, and learns routines quickly.  At feeding time, when all the others are excitedly jumping around and making noise, little Harris can be found sitting quietly at the place where his bowl is always placed.  He patiently watches the food being prepared and the bowls put down, but never carries on like the other guys do.

JAKE

We have a wonderful Senior who needs a great forever home! Well, he is barely a Senior at 5 - 7 years of age; but, Jake has an old Soul! This sweet, SWEET dog was pulled from the County shelter on the day his 'stray hold' was up. He came to us gaunt, sick, and injured; but, also friendly, grateful, and soo loving! You can actually SEE the sweetness in his face. Jake has been totally rehabbed, neutered, microchipped, and treated for & cleared of heartworms. He is a quiet soul, housetrained, good on leash; loves rides in the car; and good around other dogs, although he doesn't interact with them much. We are looking for a quiet home, maybe with a retired couple who would love to have this beautiful creature lying by the fire in the winter and on the porch with them in the Spring! Jake is a Comfort dog!! Like mashed potatoes with gravy or rich gumbo over rice! =) His calm, gentle nature helps put life in proper perspective. We know his back-story (before the shelter) and it makes him even more amazing!! Please consider Jake if you are looking for a sweet, gentle, and quiet dog to enhance your life. I promise he will do that - in Spades!!

 

JOURNEY 

 

Journey is a young, purebred Boxer who was found wandering in a neighborhood and getting into trouble while searching for food.  He had no collar/tag or microchip; and after a concentrated search, his owners could not be found.  So, Journey came to us and has been wormed, fully vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, and treated to clear him of heartworms.  He is ready for the best and final leg of his 'journey,' and that is to find a great home worthy of this sweet, friendly, fun-loving dog!  Journey weighs in at just under 60 pounds, and he does well with dogs of all sorts and sizes.  He ADORES humans and knows no strangers.  He's playful, yet cuddly.  His only bad habit (that we are working to correct) is that he will sometimes counter-surf for goodies.  Not unusual behavior given the fact that he was starving when he was rescued!  If you have a warm place in your heart and home for this handsome fellow, please apply for him today!  You will never regret taking this Journey!! 

 

KARMA

 

Too bad All Karma isn't as great as our KARMA!!   This uniquely striking, two-year-old beauty is ready for her forever home! She has been fully vaccinated, spayed, and microchipped. Her markings are as unusual as her blue-flecked eyes and bobbed-tail.   Her heritage depends on who you ask; but, we believe she may be a mix of Catahoula and German Shorthaired Pointer.  Karma weighs approximately 45 pounds and has a happy, energetic personality. She isn't short on intelligence, either!  She has learned her basic commands during her short while in Foster Care - as well as being crate and leash trained!  She does great with other dogs and loves to play.  A couple of little quirks that her Foster Mom says Karma has is that she insists on kisses before bedtime, and she has one special squeak-toy that she  takes everywhere. =)  She is an endearing girl, that Karma!!    We are now searching for the loving family that is going to appreciate and care for this good Karma for the rest of her life!  Please apply today, if that family is yours!

LIBBY

This precious Mini-Poodle lost her life-long home when her human Mom died.  She is now seeking another loving Mom and home in which to live and love.  Libby was always well-loved and cared for.   We have her vet records and we continue to provide her with regular heartworm prevention and lots of love.  She was long-ago spayed.  Libby is easy-going house trained and enjoys her toys; but, also loves to sleep in a nice warm lap!  She has a Yorkie companion named Abby; but, her foster Mom says they only sleep together and don't play with one another much.  So, she feels that they will be OK adopted separately, if we aren't able to place them together.  At 12 years of age, Libby has put on some weight over the years.  However, she is on a diet to lose those extra pounds.   She was a bit woolly when she first arrived, but now has been groomed.  We are posting pictures of her with both her 'looks.'   If you are interested in adopting Libby, please send in your application soon.  She wants to get on with life in her new home! 

 

 

 

 

 

MAGGIE

 

Maggie was found as a new Mom, and we were told that her puppies were given away at a local feed store.  She was then dumped in a park and left to fend for herself.  But, rescuers have a different plan for her which allows for a great life in a loving home. Maggie is a Black Lab mix who has now been wormed, fully vaccinated, spayed, microchipped, and tested (Negative) for heartworms.  She is house-trained and exhibits the typical behavior of a happy, sweet, energetic Lab. We believe she is approximately 2 years of age, weighing in at ~60 pounds. She loves to play fetch with her humans and plays hard with the other black lab in the foster home from daylight to dark. Labs are wonderful family pets and people who have lived with a Lab are loyal to the breed. The home we are looking for will have at least one other dog and maybe a child or two to play with Maggie -- a home that will love and care for her to her last day.  She has seen enough of the other side of life!  If you can offer Maggie a safe and loving home, please apply for her today!   She's a great dog and will love you and your family to her last breath! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MOUSE

This precious little Chihuahua was dumped at a tractor supply house before daybreak early one morning.  He was terrified, skinny, and appeared to have an awful case of mange.   The plea for help went out, and Baytown Humane Society took him into the Program. We  named him Mouse in honor of his extremely large ears!  Turns out that little Mouse is only about 8 months old, and he is hairless, not because of mange, but because he has Color Dilution Alopecia!   Mouse will forever be naked!  =)   But, there are SO many possibilities for him among all the people who love dogs, but are allergic to them!  The only different care-need is that he should have moisturizing baths, and he will need shirts and sweaters to help keep him warm and the sun off his skin.  And, even those things just add to his appeal!  Think how cute he can be dressed up!   Mouse is available for adoption after having received all his vaccinations, been neutered, and microchipped!  He tested Negative for heartworms and is receiving monthly heartworm prevention!  If you are interested in a hairless little dog, that is perfect in every other way, Mouse is the little guy for you!
