Tulip is a young adult spayed American Staffordshire Terrier mix, current on shots and heart worm preventative. She is athletic and affectionate with people. She sits and waits for her food, and sits or rolls over to be petted. She does not always get along with other animals so she needs to be an "only dog", which is why we need to find her a new home. She also needs a strong confident owner who will give her lots of attention, exercise, and positive reinforcement (a mixture of treats and praise). Given this, she is willing to lounge around with her human pack for hours. She is territorial in her own yard, but excellent on walks. She is afraid of thunderstorms and fireworks but will curl up underneath something rather than running from it. Rehoming fee of $75 to show your good intentions will include any of the following you would like: her well-loved Easy Walk harness, first month of heart worm meds (she is due on the 10th), a fairly new collar, used leash, dog food. Call me to meet beautiful Tulip!!
Sweet Roux is Looking for Her Perfect New Forever Home!
We are extremely heartbroken to have to find a new forever home for our sweet Roux-bear. She is a very sweet, loyal, loving, and SMART dog. She is two years old, spayed, chipped and up-to-date on all of her shots. We adopted her at 3 months old and don’t know exactly what breed she is.
With changes in our home we know that she would be more comfortable as an only dog, as well as in a home with older children. While she has had dog friends, she can be overly excited and needs her space. She is very smart and knows sit, stay, heel, come, and fetch (aka “go get it”). Our trainer thinks she would really do well in agility classes also and would do best in a home with a family that has time to work with her training to help her become the dog that we know she can be. This is another reason for wanting a home with no young kids…we’d really like someone to just spoil her rotten and give her the love she needs and deserves.
• Knows sit, stay, come, heel, out (kitchen), fetch
• Kennel/crate trained
• Sits and stays while food is prepped and put down
• Good with kitties

Ralphie is a 4 year old male boxador . He is very sweet and loving . He likes walks and swimming. He stays in the house while I am at work. His energy level is average. He likes cats and FEMALE dogs. He has never been around children, so not sure how he is with them. Thank You.
This beautiful rescue kitty has been our baby for 3 years. She is an AWESOME kitty: loves to lounge with you, doesn't mind being held, you can even trim her nails! She has excellent litter box behaviors, no hairballs, and does not scratch furniture. We call her T-Biddy (Cajun French for "lil bitty", even though she is a chunker).
T-Biddy has 2 rescue sister kitties and she is aggressive toward them. We have exhausted efforts to integrate her into the pack and we think it is time for her to find a peaceful home where she can be the superstar. The "Bidz" needs to be an only kitty child. Dogs are cool, we have one and they always have been fine together.
T-Biddy is a healthy girl who I want to re-emphasize - needs to be the only kitty. We think she would be fine with kids, but is not overly affectionate which may be disappointing to children. We often have to isolate her from the family to keep her from bullying her sister kitties. This is heartbreaking; she wants to be hanging out with her people all the time.
Please share or contact us if you are interested in this lovely companion. We are asking for a $50 donation to your favorite pet charity to ensure a safe rehoming for the Fabulous T-Biddy.

North is a gorgeous, white female pitbull mix. She is about 8-9 months old, 37 lbs, super cute, and sweet. She is also house trained, crate trained, knows sit, lay, stay, and we're working on heel on leash.
North has received her initial shots and has been spayed. She eats Purina One 2x a day. She needs lots of attention and exercise, and is great with kids and other dogs. She is a little timid around new things/animals until she gets to know them. I have another dog and have been fostering North for about 3 months. She was a stray in east ATX.
She really needs to be with someone that can devote more time to training a puppy. I am back and forth about keeping her, so I will want to meet you and your family to make sure she is going to a GREAT home!
Text or call anytime. Rehoming fee applies to help cover all costs associated with shots, spay and mange treatment she needed in the beginning. For more information on North, contact Megan at 409 DASH 739 DASH 6709.
Dale adores people, but isn’t overbearing. He’s playful and smart, but won’t knock you over to get to his toys. This young fun-loving hound mix is a star in basic obedience and is ready for a family to call his own. A foster would be great, but an adopter would be ideal.
Dale walks well on a leash and often sits by your side without commanding him to do so. He is house and crate trained, neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and free of heartworms. Did we mention he is a snuggle-bug?
Dale’s previous family (mom, dad, two kids) loved him to pieces, but had to give him up when he fought with the neighbor’s dog. Dale lived very happily with his dog “sibling”. However, he is often uncertain about “stranger” dogs. Dale will need continued guidance to learn how to relax around other dogs and to learn appropriate play. He recently graduated from a six-week basic obedience class at The Canine Center for Training and Behavior. Numerous trainer interns from The Canine Center are working with Dale each and every day.
Dale’s previous owners are paying for his boarding, but finances are limited. It’s probably best he go to a home without children. To learn more about this goofy boy and possibly set up a meeting, please contact Lisa at (512) 917-0930.
Recent experience between Duke and his sons has shown that he is best suited for a home in which he is an only male dog. Duke is a Texas boy looking to live out the rest of his life in a loving home where he can be a part of the family and snuggle his days away.
Contact Rebecca at (512) 632-1811.
I really am hoping that she can get some exposure on your site. Do you ever allow your referral dogs come to adoption events? This is one thing I am really hoping for meeting her in person makes all the difference in the world.
I have attached the digital picture and the flyer that I have done up for her that you could use for a description of her.
Thank you so much! I appreciate any help I can get at tthis point.

These two belonged to a neighbor who had to move earlier this year. We took them in as fosters in order to keep them out of a shelter. They are looking for a new permanent home. Nathan is a rot-mix about 3 years old. Girl is a pit-mix about 2 years old. Both are fixed and in excellent health. Both grew up together around children. Girl is the more outgoing of the two. She would benefit from having a running/hiking partner. So if you are the active type she would be a good fit for you. Nathan on the other hand is more laid back and likes to hang out in front of the tv laying on the carpet. I will be happy to arrange meet and greets if you are interested in either dog. Email Khari at email@example.com if interested or call 254-493-9894.
