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!
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!!
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!
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!
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.
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!
