This little Pug mix is the cat's meow!!   Her name is Coco, but she's full of beans!  =)  Coco weighs approximately 14 pounds and is thought to be just under a year of age.  This is one happy and energetic little dog who finds joy Everywhere and in Everybody!  She was rescued from an animal control facility, so she has good reason to by joyful!  She has been fully vaccinated, spayed and is on regular monthly heartworm prevention to keep her heart free of those parasites.  Coco is ready for a permanent home of her own!  She is ready to get started on the REAL journey of life with a family who will love and care for her for the rest of her life.  Coco will repay those gifts by double!!

Cody was rescued from the side of I-10 with a female Yorkie who was thought to be his Mother, although it's hard to see any Yorkie in him, now.  The male Yorkie traveling with them had already been run over and killed.  Although his heritage is unknown, Little Cody is now ready to find a great family with which to share his life.  He is honestly the cutest little guy you have ever seen...not only in his appearance, but by his personality, too.   And, he Does have lots of personality for a little 7-pound pup!  He wants to play with any living thing!  Not afraid of anything, and is good with the cats in the foster home, too.  He is an affectionate little guy and sleeps cuddled up with his foster parents at night.  Cody quickly learned to use the dog door and he loves to go for rides in the car.  He is very intelligent and he does love his treats; so, training him shouldn't be too hard.  Now at approximately 7- 8 months of age, he has had all his puppy vaccines, rabies vaccine, and been neutered. And, of course, he's been receiving regular heartworm prevention to keep him heartworm free.  This little boy needs activity like most intelligent Terrier types; so, we are seeking a loving home with at least one other small, active dog.  If you can offer him that and would like to give Cody a great home, please complete the online pet adoption application for him today!   Fill out our Adoption Application or E-mail us. 







These two sisters are inseparable!   They went through a really rough time soon after they were born.  They watched as their other siblings were handed out like candy on the street.  These were the last two, huddled together, frightened and clinging to one another for safety and courage.  Sometimes it is great to be the last chosen, because Daisy and Maisy aka 'the twins,' were taken by a BHS volunteer who brought them into her home, gave them love and encouragement, and now they are ready to find their forever home.  They are playful, yet, cuddly.   They get along fine with the other small dogs in the home, and have been fully vetted and spayed. Just LOOK at those precious faces.   We won't separate them; so, if you aren't up for two little bundles of preciousness, then you must keep searching!  If you are interested in adopting both of them, please apply today! 



Maisy and Daisy are in their new home... together! These two sisters were the last two in a basket of sibling pups being handed out like party favors in a parking lot! One of our volunteers took them both to safety! They were tiny babies, and grew to be precious little souls who needed just the right family! Here they are with their very own, just-right family in Pearland. 





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!

Dolly finds her new amenities to be quite peaceful and relaxing. 




Gabby is obviously a Terrier mix!   She was in pretty bad shape when she came into our program, but none of that is evident in her health or behavior now!   This little girl has a love of life that is contagious and will bring an involuntary smile to the faces of anyone she meets.  At approximately a year of age, Gabby weighs about 17 pounds and isn't expected to grow much (if any) more.  She is housetrained, knows how to use a dog door, and is good on leash.  She gets along wonderfully with everyone (human, canine and feline) she comes in contact with and only wants to play and be friends.   She will cuddle, but still has puppy energy and would prefer to play tug or fetch.  Gabby has been fully vaccinated and spayed, so all that's left to add is a good home!  If you're interested, don't hesitate!   Missing out on even one day of life with this Sweetheart would be a shame! 


Gabby with her new family!




We named him GUS, but "Dreamboat" would have worked just as well!   This boy truly is a Dream-come-true for anyone who is looking for a gorgeous, friendly, laid-back, and affectionate canine companion.  Gus, a handsome, long-coated German Shepherd,  gets along wonderfully with other dogs and with humans alike!  We haven't yet tested him with cats, but if you have a dog-friendly cat, then my money is on Gus to pass with flying colors!  Sweet Gus was rescued from a neglectful owner, but he will never suffer again!  He is parasite-free, and has been fully vaccinated, microchipped, and neutered.  All that's left to add is a little weight and the perfect family!  Gus is about a year old, quick to learn, and eager to please.  I found this description when doing research on the breed -"The Long Coat German Shepherd is admired for their beauty, gentle disposition, working ability, and their outstanding balanced and trainable temperament. We respect them for their courage, spirit, and power. Anyone who owns a long coat German Shepherd would describe a dog who is more human than canine with a soulful understanding of their human counterparts."    Like I said...Seriously...a Dreamboat of a dog!!   




Little Higgins was found in a rural area, starving and covered with mats and fleas.  He was in really bad shape when the Good Samaritan saved him and then called us for help.  Now  this scruffy little lover is all fixed up, and ready for his forever home.  He's had the entire spa treatment including surgery to repair his 'cherry' eye, teeth cleaned, neutered, and he's heartworm free!  He is an affectionate little thing, but he still runs with the big dogs... well, a little behind the big dogs, but he tries hard to keep up -  All ten pounds of him!   He will sit up and even dance for his treats.  Soo cute!   We believe he is a Yorkie mix, 4 to 5 years of age, and his gold-colored eyes are one of his special attributes.  With all of the 'feathering' around his face, he almost looks like an owl!  A precious, precious little soul who craves love, is grateful to be alive, and will give back more than he gets!  Apply for him today, if you can give him the home and love he deserves. 


Higgins fits perfectly in his forever home, oh happy day!




Holly is an absolutely precious little female Chihuahua mix.  Because of her markings, we think maybe she's mixed with Rat Terrier.   At approximately 2 years of age, Holly weighs in around 8 pounds, and every ounce of it is sugar!  She's a little skittish of strangers at first, but warms up quickly and cuddles with the best of them!  She gets along great with the other dogs in the foster home and doesn't mind the cats, either!   Holly has been fully vaccinated, spayed, and is given regular monthly heartworm prevention to keep her little heart healthy.  Please complete the application provided, if you are interested in adopting our little Holly.

Hope is so named because she had none until she was rescued from her horrible living situation.  She was living in an industrial area known for animal dumping.  She was dodging big trucks, begging for scraps, and trying to feed her puppies when she didn't have any food for herself.  Then she had to do battle to keep the other strays from attacking her newborns.  Good Samaritans at one of the nearby businesses contacted BHS about this poor black dog who was losing the battle to stay alive and we took her into our program.  Of course, EVERYTHING was wrong with Hope's health, but NOTHING was wrong with her spirit and her need for loving interaction.  Hope has made a total transformation, now.  She holds her head up high, her coat is glossy and her eyes clear and unafraid.  She is housetrained, has been spayed, and is current on all vaccinations.  Hope now needs a home in which to thrive and show her grateful love.  At about 65 pounds, she is not a dainty little girl; but, one with true 'presence.'  She is playful, happy, and now, hopeful!  She has personality that unfolds as time goes on, and she will settle into the deepest corner of your heart!  If you can offer Hope the home she deserves, please apply for her today!  She is a true rescue story, but her story won't be done, until she has a great home!   




Hope with her forever family!!!





Itsy is a tiny little female Chihuahua who wants to love and be loved to the Moon and back!  With Itsy, that's not hard to do!  She was being kept outside like a potted plant at her previous 'home,' and her skin and coat really suffered from that.  But, she now sports a shiny, sleek coat and feels SO much better!  She is fine with other dogs, but much prefers the company of humans...specifically the kind that let her sit in their laps, tell her what a good girl she is, and gently pet her!  She's a little shy at first; but, once she knows you are a friend  -   you are a friend for Life!!   At 4-to-5 years of age, healthy Itsy weighs in at 6 pounds.  This cutie is housetrained, and has been fully vaccinated and spayed.  She is ready for a forever home that will continue her good care and give her at least as much lovin' as she's getting from her foster parents.  =)  If you think you can do that, then please apply to adopt Itsy right away!  Itsy is a treasure!! 


Little Jackie was pulled from Harris County Animal Control's facility just in time.  She is such a sweet little care-free spirit who loves, loves, loves attention from her humans!  She gets very excited to see you, even if you've only been in the next room for a while!  LOL!  She has the cutest quirk of giving a little twisted grin that shows her teeth, just before slathering you with kisses!  She gets along well with the other small dogs in the home, and plays with the cats, too.  This little girl seems to KNOW that she is living on time that she wasn't really supposed to have, given her previous circumstance!  She snuggles up close at night and loves you 24/7.   Jackie is fully vaccinated, spayed, and heartworm negative - not to speak of being as cute as a button!!  Apply today!   You won't ever regret sharing life with this little waif! 


Jake is a purebred Rat Terrier whose Dad died unexpectedly. The man's family wanted to relinquish Jake, but didn't want to take him to the pound. So, he found his way to BHS and is now fully vetted, neutered, and heartworm negative. His foster family reports that Jake didn't seem to know how to play or interact with others at first, but he's becoming more socialized every day. He's learned to love playing, but still needs to figure out HOW to do it without coming on too strong. He enjoys his belly rubs, but doesn't yet understand that he needs to be still while getting them! LOL! Jake is about 12.5 pounds, young, and energetic as well as being very handsome; and he's learning how to socialize properly more and more every day. He will need a home with at least one other dog to play with, and with people who will enjoy watching him learn and develop into the perfect new family member.


Jake in the arms of his new mom! :)



Donít let the photos fool you into thinking she's a big girl!  Jeri is a petite young lady weighing in at only 12 pounds, and her gorgeous gold/brown eyes will melt your heart.  While her coat is sleek and shiny now, it has not always been that way.  Jeri was found in a ditch at the side of a busy two-lane road.  She was scavenging for food and was covered from head to toe in ant/insect bites.  Little Jeri is approximately two years old and has now been fully vaccinated and spayed.  She is fairly energetic and she plays well with other dogs and cats in the foster home.  Jeri does not give kisses, but has a very sweet disposition and seems to favor men over women.  She thrives on human contact and gets very happy and excited when you play with her.  Please consider giving this sweet girl the forever family and home she deserves.  You will never regret it!


Jeri with her new family!





Lacy is thought to be a ShihTzu mix... with what, we aren't sure.  Her coat was in bad shape when she was rescued, and is just beginning to grow out.   She looks like an Affenpinscher in the face, but her body is longer and slinkier.  But... What she is isn't as important as Who she is!   And, she is about 9 pounds of very sweet, very relaxed cuddle-putty!  =)   Lacy does great with the other dogs in the foster home, but loves to be with a human who will talk to her and tell her how pretty she is... and, all that adoration is returned 10-fold!  She enjoys sitting under the dresser and watching her Mistress put on makeup in the mornings.  She is housetrained and uses the dog door like a pro!  Lacy has been fully vetted, spayed, and is heartworm negative.  Good looks, Good Temperament, and Good Health - What more could anyone possibly ask for in a canine companion?? 






Lolli is short for Lollipop, the name she came to us with!  This precious little six-pounder will steal your heart like a 200-pound thief in the night!  She wasn't in very good shape when she was relinquished, but she's all polished and shined up good as new, now!   This sweet little Chihuahua is very affectionate, and will kiss away all your cares in the world.  She's a cuddler to be sure, and really doesn't pay much attention to the other dogs in the foster home.  She craves human companionship, and anyone who spends any time with her finds that they crave her companionship, too!  The foster parents refer to her as their "little ballerina" because of the pirouettes she performs when trying to get their attention.  Because she is so tiny, it is very important that she stays fit and trim; however, she eats with the same vigor that she gives kisses; so, it will be a must to closely regulate her caloric intake!  =)   If you are a sucker for Lollipops or Chihuahuas, then this little girl may be the one for you!  She's fully vetted, spayed, and has recently had a dental; so, fill out the application to adopt Lolli today!


Lolly and Betsy are home just in time for the holidays!  




Lolli and her new dad spend a little quality time together






This sleek and beautiful Lab mix was found injured in the median between I-10 and the feeder road near Baytown.   The kind man who stopped to help her, thought her back legs were broken; but, thankfully, that wasn't the case!  Maggie has recovered from her ordeal and is one happy, energetic and very intelligent dog!   She has been fully vaccinated and spayed.  She is heartworm negative and receiving regular heartworm prevention to keep her that way. She gets along wonderfully with other dogs, and is a real lover of humans, often lying the the laps of her foster parents at the end of the day while watching TV.  Maggie is young, but fully grown, and weighs about 45 pounds.  Her coat is a shiny mahogany color... It is hard to capture the true color in the photos but, it is a very dark, rich burgundy-brown.  Maggie is a dog you will enjoy sharing life with not only because she's so beautiful and sleek, but because she's extremely intelligent, too.   It's fun to live with a responsive dog who is curious and Wants to learn everything you want to teach.   If Maggie sounds like the one for you, please apply to adopt her today! 


Maggie says,

'Hey, you don't have to take my picture

for the site anymore... I am home now!' YAY!

This little girl named Mattie was rescued from the rain after days of avoiding capture.  She had been shooed away by so many, and there was one report of her literally being kicked from a porch where she had taken shelter from the rain.  But, now you can't scare her away with anything!  =)  She's so grateful to be safe and loved.  She has now been groomed, vaccinated, and spayed!  Her only remaining tasks are to grow out her coat, and find a great home!  She can do the first alone, but will need a little help with the second one.  Some 'before' pictures are included here with her current look.  Mattie gets along fine with the other dogs (both are small) in the foster home and she's friendly to all humans.  Cute as a bug and weighs barely 16 pounds.  She's good on leash, and is housetrained to potty-pads, if she has no access to outdoors for extended periods of time.  If you think that Mattie is the girl for you, please apply for her today!   She's a sweet and affectionate!

Monkey was a lost little soul rescued from the side of a busy highway near a thickly-wooded area where he had evidently been living, or trying to live, anyway.   He came to us a total matted mess, so matted in fact that we weren't sure if he was a boy or a girl, or even what breed he was until we were able to get him out of his cocoon.   What we found inside is an adorable little boy thought to be a Shih Tzu, with lipid brown eyes and a calm sweetness about him that is undeniable.   He's NOT that old, but he doesn't seem to know how to play.  He much prefers to sit quietly and watch the action without getting all hot and bothered!  Monkey claimed that as his name when he responded so strongly to a comment made when he was being shaved down that his face looked like a little monkey's.  At which point, the little thing did a couple of whirls around and looked up at us expectedly, like, "HOW did you know my name??"   So, we tested him again...calling him all sorts of other name, but when we threw in "Monkey," the same response came from this precious little boy!!  So, "Monkey" became his name, and he likes it just fine.... only LATER did we discover that bananas are a favorite treat of his!  Monkey is fully vaccinated, neutered, housetrained, and has a brand new beautiful coat, now.  He's NOT a dog for an active household; preferring peace and quiet as a way to fill his day.  He gets along fine with other dogs, and he can get frisky, but it doesn't last long.  He's quite the distinguished gentleman, and expects to be treated that way.  If you think your home is a good match for this darling fellow, please apply for Monkey today!


Monkey with his new loving family!
