DOC

 

Doc is READY for his forever home!  He got his name, "DOC," because he was rescued from the entrance to a doctor's office....and because we are Soo very clever!  LOL!  This handsome boy is young, maybe approaching a year of age, and weighs in at a little over 78 pounds!  We believe he is mostly German Shepherd - mixed, maybe, with Malinois.  What a great combination!!

Doc is friendly with dogs and people of all sizes and he is nosy about cats - not aggressive, tho!  He will play if they interact with him.  Doc's Foster Mom says, "Doc is a hoot and a joy to have around. He loves his walks and does great on-leash. He will sit on command and give you his paw, too."   He has been house-trained, wormed, fully vaccinated, neutered, tested heartworm NEGATIVE, and microchipped.... we just need to add a great family and Doc will have good life by the tail!   

   

Doc and his wonderful family!

 

 

 

 

 

DOLLY

Look who is ready for adoption!  Why, It's Dolly!This precious little beauty is fully vetted, spayed, and ready for her new home!   Dolly is a beautiful little ShihTzu who wants a home of her own, sooner than later, please! Her coat was in sad shape when she was found, but she is currently in the process of growing out a nice, silky, new mane!   She is young and very, very playful.  She likes to be busy, but will also cuddle in your lap.  Dolly needs a home with at least one other dog to play with and a family who will pay attention to her to help expend energy!  She knows how to use a dog door, and she consistently goes outside to potty.  She walks great on leash and loves one-on-one time with her people.  Dolly rides well in the car and is generous with her kisses!   She's a happy girl, and gets even happier when she is praised.  She's a cute and sweet character!  If you are interested in adopting Dolly, please apply today!

DUKE

Duke is absolutely PERFECT! All 20 pound of him!! Well, we know he should (and will) lose a few of those pounds, but it won't make a dent in his 'perfect!' Duke is a handsome Dachshund mix, guesstimated to be at the Perfect age of 3-4 years.

This sweet boy was rescued from a WalMart parking lot and a major search for his owner ensued! We have come to believe he was dumped, but can't for the life of us understand Why!  Duke is PERFECT!!

He was poked, prodded, and suffered all manner of indignity at the vet's office without a single whimper. He is neutered, wormed, fully vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm NEGATIVE! Duke is house-trained, doesn't chew, doesn't bark, doesn't dig, cuddles like a Pro, likes other dogs and cats... DUKE IS PERFECT!! And, we will settle for nothing short of the Perfect home for him!!

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.

 If you believe that Harris would be a good fit in your home, please apply to adopt him today!  He has many good years ahead to devote to his loving family!!

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! 

 

Karma at home with her family!

 

KIMBER

 

Please meet Kimber!! This beautiful girl is SUCH a treasure! She was pulled from the local animal control facility, and brought to the safety of a Baytown Humane Society foster home.  We believe  Kimber is a Catahoula/Labrador mix weighing about 60 pounds and approximately 2 years of age.   She has now been fully vaccinated, spayed, and microchipped.   All that's left to do is find her new home and a loving family.  We are searching for a fairly active home as Kimber is a young energetic girl who is in love with life!  She is equal portions play and cuddle!  Kimber does well with other dogs, children, and with cats, too!  The family that adopts her will be so blessed to have Kimber in their lives!   Adoption Application or E-mail us.

 

 

 

 

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!

MARTI

 

Marti was dumped by a homeless man!   How does that happen, you ask?  Well, the man tied her to a line of shopping carts in the parking lot of WalMart, boarded a transit bus and never returned... In August... In Texas.. 
 
But, as bad as that is, it turned out to be a good thing for Marti, as she is now safe, healthy, and very happy to be rescued!  Marti is a young girl of unknown heritage, weighing about 39 pounds.  She is equal parts energy and affection; although, she is a little defensive upon first meeting anyone new... but, give her 2 minutes and you have a new friend who wants to play!  
 
Marti is good around dogs of all sizes and really wants to play with them.  She WILL play all by herself, though, if given some toys.  She will pounce on them, growl and shake them, and toss them in the air only to retrieve them to do it all over again.  But, her best play time is with other canines, or perhaps an older child or two!  
 
She sleeps with the Foster Parents and loves that; but, she can be encouraged to sleep in her own bed on the floor.  She learned to use the dog door very quickly, and has not had a single 'accident' in the house.  Her Foster Mom says that Marti takes treats very gently from fingers, is good on leash, and likes to look out the windows during car rides.  It appears she had puppies at some
point, but there were none with her...she's not much more than a pup, herself.
 
All in all, this little girl will be a great addition to some lucky family.  She has been fully vaccinated, spayed, microchipped, and tested Negative for Heartworms.  Now, we only need to add a great home and Marti will be on her way to a great life! 

 

Marti with her wonderful family!

 

MAX

This handsome boy will soon be ready for adoption.  He was pulled from a local animal control facility and found to be in very poor condition.  He was emaciated, loaded with intestinal and heart worms, and so weak he could barely walk out of the shelter on his own.  Now, he has gained over 20 pounds, has been fully vaccinated, cleared of intestinal worms, neutered, and microchipped.   He still has some weeks to go on his heartworm treatment and some more weight to gain,  but then he will be ready for his new home.  At about 2 1/2 years of age, Max does well with other dogs of similar size, is shy at first but warms up to strangers quickly, and will tolerate cats, although sometimes, he does get a little overly interested.  His foster parents describe Max as "a gentle dog with an old soul."
