is believed to be a Red Heeler and Beagle
mix who was rescued in early December.
She's young (we are guessing one to two
years) and weighs approximately 35 pounds.
She has been fully vaccinated, microchipped,
and spayed. Thankfully, she tested negative
for heartworms, and receives regular monthly
heartworm prevention to keep her that way!
This sweetheart has an alert, playful
personality, and she is good with cats,
children, and other dogs. Even with her
fun-loving attitude, she can be a real
cuddle-bug! Milly is good on leash and is
house trained with a dog door. If you think
you could give this deserving little dog a
great home for the rest of her life, please
apply for her today!
is a strikingly beautiful Australian
Shepherd mix guesstimated to be about one
year of age. Her whitish coat and one blue
eye makes her a real looker! She was
rescued from where she was abandoned on a
country road east of Baytown. She is a bit
skittish after having lived alone for weeks
with only occasional, distant contact with
humans. She had to be trapped to be brought
to safety; but, even in her extreme fear,
she never showed any aggression
whatsoever. Mitzi warms up quickly to kind
words and becomes playful and loving. She
is intelligent and very responsive to
training! Mitzi is only about 35 pounds,
housetrained with a dog door, fully
vaccinated, and spayed. She gets along
great with other dogs of all sizes and we
hope to find a home with at least one other
young dog. She loves to romp and play; but,
she loves sweet talk and affection, too.
Please consider Mitzi for your next new
family member. You will never regret it!
She is as beautiful inside as she is out!
Mitzi, enjoying nap time in her new home!
who is the New Man on the site! Soo, that's
how he got his name, Newman! This extremely
handsome fellow is obviously a Pit Bull
Terrier - Blue in color, and just LOOK at
those eyes! When he showed up, he had an
extreme case of mange. The family who
rescued him contacted BHS for help. So,
Newman is currently fully vaccinated,
cleared of mange, microchipped and neutered!
He is approximately 8-10 months old and
weighs 45-50 pounds! This is One happy pup
who is thrilled to have company in his
backyard to play. The family who has Newman
allows him indoors only sporadically, so
he's still learning the ropes on how to be a
good house dog. But, he is a very smart boy
and once he gets over the excitement of
having company, he sits on command and shows
eagerness for more ways to please. We are
looking for proper placement of this
bouncing baby boy. He is handsome, now; but,
he's going to be a stunning adult. He plays
with the resident Terrier; but, he's much
heavier and more exuberant than that spunky
little girl. Newman needs a home with active
(but, Kind) children or at least one other
strong, happy dog to play with. He needs a
home that sees him for the good and
glad-to-be-alive dog that he is; and one
that can handle a strong bully breed who is
eager to learn the ropes and become a
cherished family member. Newman truly is a
Newman settling in and smiling big in
his new home!
is the most unusually marked Chihuahua that we have ever
rescued. The coat combination of brindle and then ticking
on the paws is striking! And those Ears!! Biggest thing
about her! At less than a year of age, this little girl is
tiny (~4 pounds), but spunky!! Pepper roughhouses like crazy
with the other small dogs in the home, and she's very
affectionate to the humans. She gives sweet kisses and
likes to sleep curled up next to her Foster Mom! Pepper is
fearful of larger dogs and even a little frightened of cats!
She LOVES to eat, which is common for most animals that
have known serious hunger in their lives. Pepper's new
guardian(s) will have to be vigilant in monitoring her food
consumption so that she doesn't become overweight. She has
been fully vaccinated, spayed, and receiving regular monthly
heartworm prevention to keep her tiny heart free of those
pesky heartworms. This little girl will steal your heart
while you watch!! Apply for her today!
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! We could make a deal! Please let us
know if you can give this tender, sweet soul the safe,
loving home he deserved from the beginning!
a Golden Retriever/Australian Shepherd mix, was rescued from a hoarding
situation. We believe her to be approximately 7 months of age and she
is now 33 pounds and growing. Sandy has the wonderful, easy-going
personality of a Golden Retriever coupled with the intelligence of the
Aussie! What a great combination of breeds! She learned to use the
dog door in less than 5 minutes, sits on command, is mostly
house-trained, and responds to reprimand immediately. She's the first
one to show up and sit when she hears the ice dispenser activate...
LOVES crushed ice! =) She gets along great with all the other dogs in
the foster home. She spends the day running, chasing, tumbling, and
roughhousing with the others and shows immediate submission, if someone
gets too rough! Smart Girl!! Sweet Sandy is ready for adoption now that
she is healthy, vaccinated, and spayed. If you are ready to have a
fantastic, life-long canine companion, Sandy should be a strong
Sandy's 'family portrait' in her new home!
Shorty is Ready to go to
his forever home!! This cutie pie is fully vaccinated, neutered,
heartworm negative, and microchipped. At approximately a
year-and-a-half, he is all of 20 pounds and gets along great with dogs
of all sizes. He has no idea that he's.... SHORT! His best dog-buddy
in the foster home weighs about 65 pounds! He wants to play with the
cats, too, but they keep giving him the smack-down! The foster mom says
he hasn't had an accident in the house in a while; so, we are hopeful
that he's got the idea, now! We think Shorty may be a Basset/Dachshund
mix? He's small and short like the Dachshund, but his splayed stance,
heavy bones, and joints just scream Basset; but, who knows for sure?
We DO know that he's cute-as-a-bug, affectionate, intelligent, and
fun-loving. Not afraid of a thing, and sooo happy to be alive! If you
think he's the guy for you, please apply today!
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. This beautiful pup is ready to
go to the loving family we know is out there
waiting for her! Please apply today, if you
think Tallulah can be your newest family
Here is Tallulah at the time of rescue.
Now look at her! She's a beauty.
was a tiny little baby when she rescued. Less than 2 months old and
barely 2 pounds, she was Waay too young to be on the streets on her own.
All effort to find her owner was fruitless. She is a unique little
girl with lots and lots of spunk. At 5 - 6 months old, now, she is only
9 pounds, but she can manage to push open sliding doors and can jump
higher than a cat! She's very ingenious and calculating... 'if I move
this and jump here, then I can get to that,' type of calculating. A
trait not often seen in dogs. Thus, her Wonder Woman cape in some of
these pics! We aren't sure of Tootsie's lineage, but think she has
Chihuahua and Pug genes. She is fully vaccinated, spayed, and gets
along with other small dogs and cats, too! As with most puppies,
Tootsie plays hard all day; but by bedtime, she's all kisses and
snuggles! If she's a girl after your own heart, please apply today!
meet Trooper! He is one of our Hurricane
Harvey rescues. His family has not been
found; and he is ready, now, to get on with
life. Believe it or not, Trooper is just a
puppy!! Yes, he is definitely going to be a
Hunk-A-Hunk-A-Dog when he is done! He
weighs almost 60 pounds at less than
six months of age! He is an easy-going,
laid-back kinda guy so far. We are calling
him a Lab mix, but not sure what other large
dog he's mixed with... Newfoundland, maybe??
He is playful, but doesn't get real
excited about anything - very calm demeanor.
His Foster Mom and I have declared that he
is an Old Soul in a Young Body! Trooper is
non-aggressive, gentle, and does fine with
the other dogs and even the cat in the
foster home. He has been fully vaccinated,
neutered, leash-trained, and coming along
nicely with house-training. If you think
you can give this fine boy a safe, loving,
and forever home, please apply for him
Trooper all smiles on adoption day!
Trooper with his wonderful mom and dad!
