MITZI

 

Mitzi 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!

MOLLY 

 

This is Molly! She is an owner-relinquish who couldn't be more adorable than she is already! That one blue eye is definitely an attention-getter! She was given as a gift to an elderly person who found taking care of a puppy was just too much! (Have we ever mentioned that giving pets as gifts is a horrible and inconsiderate idea??) Molly is a Poodle mix (with Maltese?) who is only 7-8 months old! She is full of energy and loves to play fetch with her ball - when she runs to fetch, it's fun to see her bounce and leap to get it! She is smart and learned to use the dog door right away! Molly plays well with the other small dogs in the foster home and has been fully vaccinated, spayed, and is receiving regular heartworm prevention. We are looking for a home with someone who can give Molly lots of attention and at least one other active dog for Molly to play with. She would be miserable as an only dog at home alone! 

 

 

Molly looking very happy at home!

 

 

 

 

NEWMAN

Look 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 great dog!!    Fill out our Adoption Application or E-mail us.

 

 

 

 

REESIE

Reesie is so named because of her markings! =) She looks like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup after you have bitten off a piece... All dark and chocolaty on each side of that tan/orangey peanut butter inside! This Reesie has been nibbled many times! LOL!! This sweet, sweet girl is very shy at first, but will approach and ask to be petted after she's sure of you. We think she was mistreated because of her submissiveness and because she is still learning to trust people. She is now finding out that she can safely come through a door, even if a human is standing there. She uses the dog door like a pro, and she would rather run than to eat - literally. We believe that she is a Plott/Whippet mix. At approximately 45 pounds, she is sleek, lithe, and unbelievably fast! Reesie runs for the sheer JOY of running! She responds with immediate speed when you call her name - just so happy that someone is summonsing her! She gets along famously with the other dogs in the home and is very affectionate to her foster parents, often jumping on the bed for a snuggle first thing in the mornings. At two to three years of age,  Reesie has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and housetrained. Reesie is looking for a forever home with a family who will give her time to continue to grow aware that she will no longer be abused, and someone with a big, secure yard for her to run in - a couple of squirrel-laden trees would be just the cherry on top! Come On!! Everyone loves a Reesie!!

 

   

REGGIE

 

Reggie is believed to be a Doberman/Ridgeback mix who is approx 9 - 12 months old.  He was abandoned in a rural area and left to die, except for the kindness of strangers.  [Read Reggie's Story]  This handsome fellow is now safe in a foster home, and has been fully vaccinated, neutered and housetrained.  He's ready, now, for his forever home with people who Deserve to share life with such a fantastic creature!  Apply today if you think you will be the right home for Reggie!

ROSIE

Rosie is a very intelligent young girl who came to us with a broken leg.  She has been through heck with that leg, but she never let it slow her down!  She is fully healed now, and except for a scar, you would never know it happened.  Rosie is a fairly high-energy dog who likes to learn about everything!  She's downright Nosey sometimes!    But, that's expected from a smart dog.  She loves to play with the soccer ball, and with the other dogs in the home.  When she is reprimanded, Rosie will turn on the charm and literally 'smile' at you showing all her teeth as she pulls back those lips in that big grin.  We've not been able to capture that in a photo, yet; but, will keep trying...she is usually wiggling toward you at the same time she's displaying that charming grin.  It's Really hard not to laugh when she's doing this little 'aww, you know you love me,' maneuver! She is always first in line for ice when she hears someone getting some from the dispenser.  Rosie is about 45 pounds; and, at a year-and-a-half old is housetrained, leash-trained, fully vaccinated, spayed, and ready for her permanent home.  She is a busy girl, but, she will abandon all activity and become a cuddle-bug if asked to.  She LOVES one-on-one interaction with her human. She is particularly sweet and cuddly in the evenings when she's tired.     Rosie is a great partner for watching tv or for playing frisbee.  With her intelligence and her focus on her human, Rosie will be easy to train to do just about anything!  Life is coming up Roses for our sweet Rosie... you should get in on it, too! Fill out our Adoption Application or E-mail us.

 

 

 

 

RUSTY

 

This little 14.6-pound wonder is absolutely Perfect!  He has the looks, charisma, and intelligence everyone wishes to see in their canine companions.  Rusty gets along great with the other dogs in the foster home, and he learned to use the dog-door immediately.  He is good on leash and will sit on command.  He loves to play and he's quickly learning to retrieve the ball.  Rusty is a young boy of about a year and he's obviously a Long-Haired Dachshund mix.  He was rescued from the streets and has now been fully vaccinated and neutered.  All that's left to do is find a great home for him, and his successful rescue story will be done!  If you think you can provide that final chapter, please apply to adopt him today!  Don't miss out on another single day with this precious little guy! 

   

 

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!  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! 

     

 

 

 

 

SOPHIE

Sophie is a Terrier mix (maybe with Schnauzer??) who is full of energy and has a zest for life!  At about a year and a half old, she weighs in at approximately 16 pounds of fun and play!  When Sophie was rescued from the streets she was not only homeless, but scared, skinny, and had mange.  But, those days are gone forever now.  She has gained weight, been cleared of mange, fully vaccinated and spayed!  She's come out of her shell and is ready to live life to the fullest.  She gets along fine with other dogs and loves her people, too!  Dogs like Sophie who have survived the rough stretches of life and have learned to enjoy and truly appreciate every moment life has to offer, now.  If you would like to share that joyful life with a cutie like Sophie, please don't hesitate!   Apply to adopt her today!   She's ready to get on with it!

RYAN

 

Ryan is a Great Pyrenees mix who we think is about 5 years old. He was in pretty bad shape when he came to us, but now he's gained weight, has been fully vaccinated, neutered and thoroughly spoiled with loads of love to erase his memory of the horrible life he had before.  This sweet, affectionate guy is housetrained, will sit for treats and he'll give you his paw without your having to ask.  He's friendly, but protective of his 'flock,' and gives love and devotion that is absolutely unparalleled!   Ryan is totally non-destructive and he doesn't bark unnecessarily or dig.  He's attentive to you and is very responsive to praise or reprimand.  He LOVES his chew toys to be stuffed with peanut butter when you are leaving, and will take treats from your hand with a very gentle mouth. 

 

Ryan in his loving new home!

 

 

SUGAR

 

Sugar is a precious little Pomeranian mix who weighs only about 12 pounds.  She lives up to her name by way of personality.   Precious, sweet little girl!  Sugar has been fully vaccinated, spayed and microchipped.  She is housetrained and doesn't bark unnecessarily.  She gets along great with dogs of all other sizes and loves humans, too!  She was dumped by her sorry owners because of divorce; so, it's through no fault of her own that she is homeless, now.  If you think Sugar looks like a match for you, please apply to adopt her today!  She is definitely a Sugar-baby! 

 

Sugar at home with her wonderful Mama! :)

 

 

 

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.  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 member!

 

Here is Tallulah at the time of rescue.

 

   

 

 

 Now look at her! She's a beauty.

 

 

 

 

 

 

TINKER

 
Tinker is a looker, isn't he?  He appears to be a pointer mix with all his blue ticked coat, but whatever he is, Tinker as beautiful as a painting and those golden eyes are mesmerizing.  He is a snuggler, but LOVES to play chase with his housemates.  Actually, Tinker is just about the complete package!  He's unique in appearance, already neutered, housetrained, leash-trained, sits for 'cookies,' gets along beautifully with other dogs, affectionate to people, uses the dog door like a pro and is missing only one important component - a loving forever home!    This beautiful dog belongs in a home!  Do you think he'd be a good fit in yours?   There's no exaggeration when we say that Tinker is a perfect boy...Now, to find the perfect home for him! 

 

 

Tinker in his new home!

 

 

 

 

TINKER & BELLE

 
These two precious Dachshund/Chihuahua mixed babies were rescued from flood waters back in late July.    They are brother and sister and, together, weighed less than 10 pounds!  They had only one another to depend on in those first couple of months before they were rescued, and they are very bonded.  We will not adopt them separately.   Tinker & Belle are now approximately 5 months old, de-wormed, treated and cleared of Demodectic mange, fully vaccinated & spayed/neutered.  They are housetrained to pee-pads, now, but the transition to being fully housetrained shouldn't be too hard.  Belle, the female, has shorter legs and is a little stockier than her brother.  She is the leader; and where she goes, so goes Tinker.  Tinker has longer legs, a leaner body and sports a tiny white flash on his forehead.  They both now have sleek, shiny, reddish coats covering their elongated bodies, and a zest for life that will warm your heart. These puppies are beyond precious and we know we will get many applications.  However, only applicants who wish to adopt both puppies need apply.  They love each other way too much to separate them.
