Aiden is a big, sweet boy who is around seven years old. He gets along great with other dogs and would be thrilled just to hang out, go on walks and chill.
Lovely Alexus is about 5 years old. She is great with other dogs but not feline-friendly. This girl has both brains and beauty! She is a quick learner and mastered the doggie door at her foster home in a single day! She enjoys car rides and daily walks. Now all this little lady needs is a family to give her forever!
Baird was surrendered to a local shelter after his family could not afford his medical care. He was lethargic, had bloody diarrhea and we all feared the worst - parvo. Thankfully, it wasn't parvo and our wonderful vets were able to get him back to being a healthy, happy puppy. He is a spunky 11 month old and is ready for his REAL happily ever after. Thank you so much to our wonderful volunteer who rushed out in the middle of the day to get this boy safely out of the shelter. Baird is hoping to find a Foster Family while he waits patiently for his Forever Family to find him.
I'm Sir Bentley, and recently Hurricane Harvey uprooted me and shook my world. Luckily, I was rescued from the floodwaters but I was never reclaimed. However, just like my fellow Texans, I'll get through this stronger than ever. I'm around three years old, I know several commands, I ride great in the car, and I'm polite on the leash. Though it took a short time for me to adjust to my new surroundings, I'm now doing wonderfully with my foster pack, and I love humans. I'm now looking for the chance to build a new life with the perfect forever family.
Handsome Cayuga made it on the "list" in a local shelter because he had a pretty nasty wound on his arm. Thanks to one of our volunteers who immediately transported Cayuga to our vets. The vet determined the wound had been there for quite a while and our little man had aggravated it with tons of licking. Cayuga got all fixed up with some hydro and laser therapy and he is now ready for his Forever Family. Cayuga is a young whipper snapper at only 8 months old and is a total sweetie pie. He's won over every one's hearts with his gorgeous smile! Cayuga needs a Foster Family who can help facilitate his wound care at our vet's office while he awaits Forever.
Lovely Chasca is named after an Incan goddess (you can see why). She was picked up as a stray in San Antonio. She is around a year old and very sweet.
This is Cyclops, and as I'm sure you've gathered, he only has one good eye, but you don't need perfect vision to see that he would make a wonderful addition to your family! He's around 5-6 years old, and he's got the stats to win you over:
He's a chill dude with a lot of love to give his new forever family. Please note, his special requests include lots of chicken and attention in his new home. If you think this mellow guy is for you, fill out an application!
This beauty is about a year old...pictures don't due her justice. Super sweet, Dory was a recent owner surrender to a local shelter. Dory had been adopted by a young man who wasn’t ready for the responsibility of husky ownership. Dory gets along great with other dogs, but like her swimming counterpart...cats are not her thing! Dory knows “Trust. It’s what friends do.” And this sweet friend can trust us to find her a family who is ready for a sweet husky girl and who will love her FOREVER.
Drayden is another boy on the "list" because of a nasty wound on his neck and a swollen foot. We all know any type of injury makes a pup "unadoptable" and they are the first on the list. Our shelter partners knew we were stuffed to the gills but kept Drayden safe for us until we were able to get him to safety. Drayden was rushed to our vets by an awesome volunteer so they could take care of his wounds. He was neutered last Friday but had a few complications (hernia, URI, etc.) so his recovery will take a bit longer. Once he is all healed, he will be ready for Forever!! Please keep this guy in your prayers for a quick recovery. Visit our website www.TexasHuskyRescue.org for more info on Drayden!!
Emma!! This sweetheart was on "list" because she was an owner surrender. For those of you that don't know, owner surrenders are the first to be EU'd when a shelter is full, and that was the case for sweet Emma because like us...everyone everywhere is soooo full. Thankfully, we had several foster offers and were able to get her safely out of the shelter. Thanks so much to an outstanding Foster Family she is settling in great and will soon be ready for her very own FOREVER, FOREVER home.
Fritter is such a sweet, silly boy. He's about a year and half old and loves people...especially kids. He is doing great at his foster home learning how special it can be to be loved and part of pack.
If you are looking for an unconditional loving companion, Gabbie is your gal. Although she may be shy at first, she will soon be your white shadow. She does prefer the company of women and smaller dogs, although she would prefer to not share her attention and love with other four-legged friends. Gabby suffers from a form of auto-immune anemia and so will require a very special adopter for a very special girl.
Big boy Gambit is super-sweet. He is around six years old, calm in the car and good with both dogs and kids. He was another last minute save from a local shelter and we are grateful to his foster family for taking him in. He appears to have been a stray for some time and so will need some time to recover but can't wait to start his new life!
If you are looking for a chill guy, Gambit might be your play. He is just looking for a quiet home where he can indulge in his favorite pastime--napping. He is potty trained but does not need to be crated. He would probably be happiest as an only or with a calm companion.
Gia - yet another poor baby that was on the "list." But thanks to a special husky angel, Gia was swooped up for rescue in the nick of time! She is a tiny gal that loves everyone and everyone loves her. Plus...She is great with other dogs! Plus, Plus...rumor is she may be cat friendly!!
Meet the Firefly Pack!! Malcolm, Kaylee and Inara were born on April 26, 2018 in the shelter to their sweet mom River. Sweet Malcolm loves to snuggle, be held and have his belly rubbed but mischievous Malcolm loves to run and play with his sisters. Inara loves to bark, howl and sing the song of her people. Inara is very playful and learning to keep her mouth to herself. Kaylee is a take charge girl who wants all of the toys and food for herself. Kaylee is learning great manners as well as how to share. Kaylee seems to prefer the company of boys. They are all learning their manners quickly and even already know how to sit.
Inuk is about 3 years old and a real lover. He adores giving kisses and riding in the car. Inuk is dog friendly but should be in a home with older children. He has a typically husky independent streak and enthusiasm for adventure. He would do best with an active, husky-savvy adopter. Cuddle, anyone?
Jambalaya is about 4 years old. He was a stray and in very sad, sad shape with skin infections and severely malnourished. But even as bad as he felt, he's a big ol' love bug. Super sweet, gets along great with dogs and people. All he needs now is a forever family!
Meet Jif! This gorgeous nutter butter was a stray and never reclaimed. So, it's official...he's now a member of the TXHR Family! He is a very sweet boy, needs a bit of vetting then will ready for his Forever or Foster Family!!
Kodiak ~ This handsome hunk of a husky was an owner surrender because he "kept escaping." Kodiak was escaping because he was forced to live outside in this horrendous heat and was looking for a cool place to crash. Kodiak is 4 years old and is settling in awesomely at his Foster home. He loves going on walks, loves his foster doggie sister and hu-brother and is learning to be an inside dog.
Kolache is a strikingly gorgeous 1-year-old girl with unique coloring. She came to us with a severe case of mange that was very painful for her. She was rushed to our generous medical foster who was able to polish out this beautiful diamond. Now that she is all healed, she enjoys spending her time with her foster siblings, going camping, kayaking, and hiking. Kolache also LOVES toys, especially balls, and would do best with an active adopter who also likes to play. This smart girl is both potty and crate trained. If you are looking for an adventurous sidekick, Kolache's your gal.
Sweet little Link was found as a stray and never reclaimed. Poor little fella was a bit sad because he thought he had lost his family forever. Little did he know that him not being reclaimed opened the door to joining the bestest family EVER, TXHR! He’s a good boy. Crate and potty trained. A bit timid and nervous around other dogs at first but he likes to play when he gets comfortable
This is Luna Lovegood and true to her namesake, she's one special girl. Before TXHR took her in, she was used for breeding in a puppy mill and did not know there could be a life outside of her breeding pin. Because of her past, she is a little wary of new things. However, in the short time she has been with her foster family, she has made incredible strides in learning to "dog." She's house-trained, crate trained and does well with other dogs. She is currently learning basic commands and house manners. Her foster family reports that she becomes distressed around new people and new environments, but she is eventually able to trust, as evidenced by her "cuddly" moments with her foster mom. Luna needs to go to a patient adopter who wants to earn her trust and will continue working on breaking her out of her shell. If you can give her the magical life that she so clearly deserves, fill out an application today.
Omitaa is around two years old. He was surrendered to a shelter in Houston in very poor condition but now he's doing great! Omitaa is very loving and affectionate. He is a small guy but still loves to roughhouse with other dogs. He is crate and potty trained and knows sit and shake. Omitaa is very treat motivated and will probably need some nice, safe chew toys in his new home (otherwise he might not chew something quite so...appropriate). We think he could be an only or a pack mate but cats are not recommended. If a playful, loving, friendly, sweet, energetic, outgoing and happy is what you've been looking for, Omitaa is your guy!
Meet Orchid!! This sweet gal was another owner surrender this weekend. She was hit by a car and a wonderful couple took her in, paid for her medical expenses...everything. This family was AMAZING! They did everything they could for her. They really wanted to keep her but when they got her home she was just a little to interested in their livestock. There was just no way she could be integrated into their family and they really were disappointed and heartbroken. So they reached out to us and now Orchid is a member of the TXHR Family! Orchid is a sweetheart, gets along great with other dogs, kids is a great little lady. She is about 4 years old and can't wait to find her own Happily Ever After.
Hi, I’m Oscar, a 2 year-old rare husky/rabbit mix. I look all husky on the outside, especially with my piercing blue eyes. However, when I get excited, my inner bunny comes out, and I just have to hop around. My jumping skills are pretty amazing, if I do say so myself. I pounce over the back of the couch with ease and grace, I bunny hop to my crate when it is dinner time, and I can jump in the air great heights to catch a toy. Well, to be quite honest, my jumps are much more amazing than my catches.
Not only am I an expert at jumping, but I also know all of my basic commands, am house trained, and walk like an absolute angel on the leash. Impressive, I know.
When I’m not hopping around or doing somersaults (yes, you read that correctly), I love to play with my canine foster siblings. Since I love playing with other dogs so much, I would love to go to a forever home that has other dogs. I also enjoy cuddling on the couch and getting belly rubs, playing tug of war, and defluffing toys.
All in all, I’m a pretty cool dude. So, if you would like a never ending supply of entertainment and love, then I’m your guy!
Pandora is around five years old and was part of cruelty/breeding seizure. She will need to recover from heart worms before finding her happily ever after. We will keep you updated as she recovers with one of our most experienced fosters.
Parker is about 2 years old, walks nicely on a leash and is both dog and cat friendly. He is house trained and knows a few commands. Parker has an outgoing personality, friendly, affectionate and a wannabe lapdog. And he loves toys!!
My name is Paul, and I really hope you have a tissue ready because my story is quite the tearjerker. Spoiler alert-- it has a happy ending.
Although my past is my closely guarded secret, I will give you some hints. As you can see, the top of my left ear is missing. I wish I could say I was born this way, but that's not the case. Because of my distrust of dogs, it is pretty easy to conclude that a dog ripped it off. Instead of being sad about my missing ear, I have decided to embrace it since I think it adds to my cuteness.
I officially became a TXHR pup after my heartbreaking shelter picture made its way to the rescue. Make sure you grab one of those tissues when you look at it. As you can see, my spirit was very broken.
My transition into TXHR was rocky at first, considering people hadn't been exactly great to me in the past; but with love and patience, my amazing Foster Dad taught me how to trust again. I don't always understand why he asks me to do things that push me out of my comfort zone, but I comply because I know my Foster Dad only asks me to do things that help me make better choices. I am still not quite ready to live with other dogs because I am still haunted by the dog who ripped my ear off, but that just means I get extra belly rubs from humans because I do not have to share attention.
I know a lot of people really want puppies, but let me tell you what this 6-year-old has to offer...I will sleep quietly and contentedly in my crate so that you can sleep peacefully through the night. I don't chew on shoes or furniture, I don't potty in the house, I don't steal food off the counter, and I don't jump on people. My Foster Dad, who is a dog trainer, will even help guide you in making my transition into my Forever Home seamless.
As you may have noticed, I love my Foster Dad; however, I still dream of ending my story with a "Happily Ever After" with my very own Forever Family.

Rose ~ "That's how we're gonna win. Not fighting what we hate, saving what we love." #thelastjedi Starwars
Rose was rescued from a shelter down south and her owners refused to reclaim her. She came to us with serious eye issues and Heartworm Positive. It was determined by our vets that she was completely blind and needed to have one of her eyes removed. She has finally recovered from her eye surgery and heart worm treatment so now she is ready for her very own Forever Family. Rose is about 4 years old, a super sweet girl, great with other dogs and very happy! Her Foster Family can't say enough nice things about her!!

Now that she is all healed and as gorgeous as ever, she is just waiting on her own family to make her dream of forever a reality. Her medical foster reported that she is a dream, and whoever adopts her will hit the jackpot with this lovely lady.
Vigo is around five years old! He loves, loves, loves to play--especially with an equally enthusiastic canine buddy--but he also adores fetch and toys. He is a goofy, mischievous boy who will need patient adopters to teach him boundaries and continue his training. He is house trained and rides well in the car. His foster is currently working on crate training. Vigo is great with kids and dogs of all sizes. An active family and a doggy sibling (or two) are recommended for this high energy, fun loving boy. He is also cat-friendly!

We think she is around a year old and would love a nice foster home.

She loves to play, cuddle, run and even if it's not fun she'll make a game of it.
