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!
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!
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!
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!!
Nacho is quite pleased to be a part of
such a lovely family!
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!
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!!
Ricky is a little Chihuahua waif that was found on
the streets with his traveling relative (we suspect brother), Pete!
Ricky is even smaller than Pete as he only weighs less than 4 pounds!
But, that tiny little body is chock full of spirit and spunk!
Ricky has been vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, and kept current on
heartworm prevention! Ricky gets along with other small dogs, and
likes to initiate play with each of them. This little guy doesn't
know when to quit! =) But, when he does wind down, he is
THE best little cuddler you could ask for! We are looking for a
home that will be mindful that his tiny size will allow him to escape
through openings you wouldn't expect and that will keep watch over him
outside since he would be perfect prey for hawks and owls. He is
going to make some lucky family even luckier!
Ricky looking super happy in his new home!
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!
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!! Please apply today!
Rusty is thrilled to be off the streets and
in a loving home.
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!
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
Adoption Application or
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!
Little SPIRIT is a Shih Tzu mix, and
only about 10 months of age. She was found after having been
securely taped inside an old diaper box and thrown into a ditch.
There are witnesses that saw the box in the ditch for at least
4 days. Someone got curious and stopped to look, and discovered
this little Treasure buried inside! She was in terrible
condition from having severe mange, and from having been stuffed
inside that box for so many days AND nights... in January!!
But, she emerged from the torture with such a wonderful, happy
Spirit even though she was in misery with her eyes matted
closed, and literally bleeding from the horrible mange and
cut-up mouth from trying to chew her way out of the box. The
veterinary staff were also amazed and they actually are the ones
who named her SPIRIT! She has now recovered completely from
mange, is growing a nice new coat, has been fully vaccinated,
spayed, and microchipped. Spirit is ready for the great home
that she has EARNED and deserves! If you are interested in
adopting this darling little girl, please apply today!
Spirit is one happy girl in her new home!!
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.
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!
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
