NACHO

 

Since this cutie is " Not 'yo " ordinary kinda guy, he wears the name, "Nacho!"   This handsome fellow has been fully vaccinated, neutered, and finished his heartworm treatment in May.  The foster mom has this to say about him:  "I really canít say enough good things about this handsome boy Iíve been fostering for the last 6 months.  Heís a sweet, three-year-old Pomeranian mix, weighing about 18 lbs and he is house trained.   He gets along great with my 3 other dogs (from a large Dobie mix to a 16-year-old Jack Russell) and is perfect with kids.  Nacho has had limited interactions with cats, but showed no issues at all.  He also loves treats and ice!  This cutie is patient for haircuts and baths, rides great in the car, and is an excellent cuddler... In short, Nacho is just a total sweetheart."   He loves human interaction/company the most, and we believe a best fit will be with someone who is retired or works from home.  Nacho truly is an exceptional pup and will prove to be a great new family member for years to come!! 

 

 

PETEY

 

Petey is a young, happy Chihuahua mix who was rescued from the streets by a good Samaritan.  All efforts to locate an owner were exhausted, and Petey was relinquished to Baytown Humane Society.  At about 8 pounds, this little guy is a people-pleaser!   He gets his feelings hurt if he is reprimanded, and won't give up until you forgive him.  He does well with the other similar-sized dogs in the foster home, but gets a little jealous if one of the others is cutting into HIS attention time. =)   Sweet-Pete has been fully vaccinated and neutered.  He tested Negative for heartworms, and he's received regular heartworm prevention since being in Foster care.  The only thing lacking in this boy's life is a family who will love and take good care of him in the years to come!   If you think that may be Your Family, then please apply for Petey, today!! 

 

    

 

 

 

 

 

 

RIVER  (Courtesy post)

 

This beauty is looking for her forever home!  "River" is a Lab/Terrier mix!  Yes! Her Mom is a large, wire-haired Terrier - which explains River's beautiful and unusual coat.  River was never shown any affection from humans and grew to be very wary of people.

River had to be trapped to be rescued; and not a second too soon as she was in sad shape after growing without proper nutrition or protection from parasites. Of course, her foster Mom worked hard to show River that all people aren't bad, and that some can be trusted. Meanwhile, she was giving River the nutrition and medical care needed to bring her to good health. That has been accomplished; and, now, River (40 pounds and about 18 months old) has recovered beautifully from her maladies and has been fully vaccinated, microchipped, and spayed. She is also crate-trained, house-trained with a doggie door, good in the car and on-leash!

River is not a special-needs dog; but, she needs a special person. Someone who has empathy for what she has been through and from whence she came! She has made astounding progress, already; and shows her foster Mom that she wants to give and receive more! However, there are multiple dogs in the home, and River needs more one-on-one time and less shared-attention in order to become the happy, confident dog she deserves to be.

She gets along fine with other dogs, particularly those who aren't timid. Of course, she is very fond of her Foster Mom and will join her on the couch allowing/requesting pets, hugs, kisses, and touching at will. River now cautiously approaches other humans and will allow a touch, once she has time to check them out. She has Never shown any sign of aggression whatsoever! She just skitters away from anything frightening, like a too-quick move from someone; or someone trying to force her to be petted. She never tries to bite..just runs away.

So, River is looking for that understanding person or family that is savvy enough to know how to let her bond with them without forcing anything. She is extremely sweet and affectionate once she trusts you. We know that person/family is out there; and River needs you! Think of the very special bond that will develop between you and River! It will be powerful and amazing!

If you are interested in getting to know River better and possibly developing that inevitable special bond with her, please contact Debbie at: Debbiej63@yahoo.com or call 281.380.9064.

 

ROCKY

 

Rocky is a precious little guy with a playful, loving personality!!  BHS pulled him from the local animal control facility a couple of months ago.  He had to be shaved down because of severe matting, but his curly coat is growing out, now, and revealing some interesting gray markings near his ears, tail, and a little on his back.   He is young - only a year to a year-and-a-half and appears to be mostly Mini-Poodle -- all 11 pounds of him!   He is heartworm negative, neutered, and microchipped.   Rocky will dance for his treats and does well with dogs of all sizes and cats, too!   We feel that he really does need at least one other dog to play with because this little guy does love to play.  But, he likes his quiet time in your lap, too!   His Foster Mom says he is quite the cuddle-bug and he gets to sleep in bed with her!  Rocky does have an adventuresome spirit and likes to explore - sometimes outside the confines of his own yard!  So, he will need a very securely fenced yard to keep him safe when outdoors.  Of course, the best idea is to go out with him to supervise his activity, and to keep him safe from birds of prey.   If this boy sounds like someone you would like to share life with, please apply to adopt him today.  This Rocky can help you smooth out any rough patches life may deliver!  =)  Apply Today!! 

 

 

ROUX

This is Roux, a very sweet and affectionate Pit who was found abandoned, scared, and starving.   She has now healthy, fully vaccinated, spayed, and microchipped!  She is ready to go to her forever home!  Roux is very shy upon first meeting and may take a bit to warm up; but, when she does, she is THE most lovable girl around.   She gets along great with her roomie, an American Eskimo mix, and the Black Lab that comes for overnights sometimes. She doesn't bark for no reason, and she is doing very well with her house-training.  If you think Roux could be your next family member, please apply to adopt her today!  She's come such a long way and deserves a great home of her own!

RUSTY

His name is RUSTY, ~39 pounds of pure sugar rescued from the streets on a freezing night!  He's now been evaluated, vaccinated, microchipped and tested heartworm Negative!   How he got so sweet in the 6-7 months he's been alive, particularly with the rough start he had, is beyond me!   But, they Always amaze  with their forgiving love and acceptance. This boy is absolutely precious, friendly, and loving!!   We can see Red Heeler (Australian Cattle Dog) in his heritage- the rest eludes us, but he is so handsome!  =)   If you adopt Rusty, he will most certainly become one of your most favorite family members...to know him is to Love him!! 

 

SAMMY

 

Sammy is thought to be a Plott Hound mix who weighs about 40 pounds.  Not sure what he is mixed with (if Anything), but he's got the soul of pure sugar.   He was found dumped at a pump station in the middle of No Where late last year. At approximately a year of age, he was intact, flea ridden, worm infested (intestinal and heart), and starving for food, water, and attention.  Even after all the neglect, this boy is so preciously sweet!  Sammy is skittish at first, and kinda wiggles all over as he stays just out of reach.  But, in a bit, he's sniffing your hand and making friends.   When he runs he reminds me of Pluto, the cartoon character... big ole paddle-feet flying in all directions, and ears trying to make lift off!  He's a talker, too.  Knows how to beg in 5 different languages, all of which he tries out on you at dinner time and when he hears the ice dispenser.  His bark ends in sort of a wail..probably his effort at baying in Italian!  =)   He's hard to photograph because of the dark face and the brindle markings; but, he is a very handsome boy.  He hates the crate and complains in all languages!  Sammy is housetrained with a dog door, neutered, flea and worm free, now.  He loves playing with his foster buddy, Tallulah; so, we hope to find a home with at least one other playful dog to keep Sammy entertained. In fact, it would be Beyond Perfect, if someone would adopt both, Sammy and Tallulah, together! 

 

 

 

SCOUT

Please meet Scout!   This VERY handsome fellow was living on the streets of a neighborhood that had been flooded out by Hurricane Harvey;  and then, still on the street, he endured the days of uncommon below-freezing winter weather last year.  The neighbors joined together to help Scout have a good life by contacting us to help him.   So, here he is in all his glory, ready to have the final piece of recovery put in place by finding a forever home with some extremely lucky family!  Scout is approximately a year-and-a-half old and weighs in at about 56 pounds.  We believe he may be Lab mix, but his shiny black coat is a bit longer and thicker than a Lab's... maybe mixed with a Chow or a Husky?  He has been fully vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, and has completed heartworm treatment.   Scout has a great personality, full of fun and love!   He Loves people, gets along fine with the other two dogs in the home, and ADORES children.  He ignored the neighborhood cats when he was on the streets, but we can't say how he would react to a cat inside the home.  Scout is looking for an active home with a secure backyard and a family who will love and cherish him as any other family member. Please apply today, if you can give this beautiful creature the home he has always deserved!

SHEBA

This is Sheba, a young, 36-pound beauty who escaped lethal injection with only hours to spare.  We believe her to be a German Shepherd/Australian Cattle Dog (Heeler) mix; with emphasis on Shepherd in her appearance and personality.  She's an intelligent and affable girl who is so very obviously grateful to be rescued.  She really wants to please humans and learns quickly.   Sheba is stunningly beautiful wearing a solid white coat, and showing Red Heeler markings on the backs of her ears and paler markings around her eyes. The black specks you see on her coat are some kind of tar that we haven't been able to remove with soap and water.  We may trim those out.   She learned the dog door right away, and does well with the other three dogs in the home.   Sheba tested Negative for heartworms and has been fully vaccinated, microchipped, and spayed.  She is now searching for her forever home with a family who will take great care of her and love her for the rest of her life!  That's how long she will love you back!   If you are interested in adopting Sheba, please apply today!   

 

 

ADOPTED

TALLULAH

 

Tallulah was rescued as a scared, skinny, and mangy baby.  She is no longer Any of that!  This beauty is now sleek as a seal, healthy, and not afraid of ANYthing!  We believe Tallulah to be a Rottweiler mix, but there's no way to know for sure.  We do know for sure that she is smart, fun-loving, cuddly, (sleeps like an angel all night with her foster parents) and tough as a boot!   She is still growing, but she weighs approximately 30 pounds at her estimated age of 7-8 months.  Tallulah is in a home with several other dogs, and she gets along with all of them. She can try to intimidate the other dog on initial meeting, but quickly reverts to her fun-loving demeanor.   She and another pup of similar age play hard all day.  So, we would like to see her in a home with at least one other active dog, and maybe a boy to call her own!  She has been housetrained, wormed, fully vaccinated, spayed, and has been receiving regular heartworm prevention since the beginning. 

 

WILLOW

This is Willow!   She was in very bad shape when we pulled her from a high-kill facility in Houston. Now, she is completely recovered and has been fully vaccinated, spayed, microchipped, and crate-trained.  We believe Willow to be approximately a year of age, and mostly a Carolina Dog, because of her markings and her behavior.  Not sure what she is mixed with, but whatever it is  -  she is wonderful!  =)   Willow is very strong and absolutely loves to run fast and play with the other dogs in the home.  She is good-natured, not aggressive, and very intelligent.   Besides playing hard, she loves chew bones and ice!  We cannot activate the ice dispenser without Willow being front and center!  We have noticed that when the day is done, and she is tired, she wants to cuddle! Happens every evening!  She has NO concept of other's personal space...she wants to be in it, like it or not!  LOL!!  She will pile into your lap, give you some kisses, and snuggle till sleep.  Willow needs an active home with at least one other fun-loving dog and maybe a child or two!  She responds quickly to reprimand, and if you show her a squirt bottle, she's outta here!  =)   If you think you can give Willow a great home, a full life, and lots of love, Please apply for her today!  Willow is not your ordinary dog...there is something special about Willow!
