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!

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!!

PEPPER

 

Pepper 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! 

 

 

 

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! 

     

 

 

 

 

SANDY

 

Sandy, 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 contender!

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!

TOOTSIE

 

Tootsie 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! 

 

 

  

 

  

 

 

TROOPER

 

Please 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 today!!

 

 

Trooper all smiles on adoption day!
