Adorable Andouille is about two years old and a total sweetheart.
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.
Sweet Biscuit was rescued by our friends over at K9 Mill Rescue. She had been living outside as a breeding dog all of her life but she says this rescue thing is pretty sweet! She is now living the good life. Biscuit is around 2 years old! Her Foster Dad says she is a super sweet, silly, loving girl as long as she’s the only bread in your basket. She does not want to share your love or her stuff with anyone. If you are looking for that one perfect dog who can be an only Biscuit is the girl for you!
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.
Sweet kooky Cookie is almost a year old and ready for her very own Foster or Forever Family.
This 10 month old sweetie 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 will love her FOREVER
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.
I’m Geena, a fun-sized coyote impersonator. I wasn’t always able to pull off this impersonation, but I decided to make the best out of a pretty miserable situation.
Before taking on this role of a lifetime, I found myself alone, scared, and very depressed at the Fort Worth Animal Shelter. I had recently had puppies, but not sure what happened to them. Honestly, at barely a year old, I am way too young to take on the responsibility of motherhood. On top of this, I had a bad case of mange which caused the majority of my hair to fall out. The longer I stayed at the shelter, the more depressed I got. It got to the point that I was pretty much completely shut down.
Fortunately, TXHR came to my rescue. Although I was very scared and timid at first, my Foster Mom worked hard to make sure I knew that most humans are good and can be trusted. It was at this time, I decided to no longer be embarrassed of my missing hair but instead embrace it. I figured it would be fun to imitate my coyote cousin since my coat currently matches theirs. Plus, I’ve even mastered the pack howl.
Once my hair completely grows out, I will be even more gorgeous than I already am. I know that may come across as a bit conceited, but a girl's gotta love who she is.
Now that I am living the amazing life of a TXHR gal, I love to play with other dogs. In fact, it really helps my confidence to be with other dogs. I spent too much time by myself, so I prefer to be a social butterfly now.
All in all, I have to say that I’m a pretty awesome pup. I’m house trained, love to cuddle with my humans, and get along with pretty much any dog I have ever met. If you think you can handle all of my awesomeness, please complete an adoption application. I’m ready to have the FOREVER I have always dreamed of.
Gumbo is less than a year old and ready for Forever. Gumbo was surrendered to us 2 months ago by his owners after he was severely attacked by another dog and they couldn't afford his surgery. Thank goodness we have an amazing medical foster who covered his medical expenses, care and recovery for the past two months. Gumbo had a broken jaw, puncture wounds and an injured eye but now Gumbo is all well and ready to find his very own Happily Ever After!! He knows basic commands and is both crate and potty trained. He is reportedly quite mellow for his age, loves to cuddle, and gets along well with other dogs. He rides well in the car too!
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?
Cutie Knox is less than a year old and he can't help but wonder why his Forever Family hasn't found him yet! Knox is doing awesome with his Foster Pack. He's good with everyone, including dogs and kiddos (but not cats)! He is super smart and knows lots of commands. He is also great in the crate and loves riding in the car. He is potty trained and super cuddly as well! We can't believe someone hasn't snatched him up yet!
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.
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.
Little Nadia is less than a year old and a pocket sized ball of fun. This pretty redhead loves car rides, people, and other dogs, and has energy to spare.
Sweet little Nadine just wants love and she's not picky about it. She adores other dogs, big humans, little humans (especially little humans), and basically everyone and everything. She is about a year old, loves to cuddle and play, play, play!! She is potty trained and would do best with an equally playful companion.
Lovely Olena is around seven years old. Olena is a puppy mill survivor. She is learning trust and love in her foster home and gets along well with the other dogs. Olena will need a special adopter with patience and love who will continue to teach her that humans can be great!
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!
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.
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.
This handsome guy is Remmington Bleu!! He is super smart and about a year and a half old. He is somewhat shy, but warms up quickly. Remmington loves belly rubs, playing ball, and road trips. He is crate and house trained. He would do best in a home with older children (13 and up).
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!!
Sheldon doesn't look like a typical husky but he has as much heart as any Siberian! He is 4 years old and born into rescue when his pregnant husky mom was saved from an area shelter. Sheldon is a sweet and loving boy who gets along great with other dogs, loves to play, go on walks and visit the dog park. He is house trained, crate trained and super smart. Sheldon is kid-friendly and loves everyone!! Sheldon has been waiting a very, very long time to find Forever! Maybe he has been waiting for you!!!!
Sweet Sherman is around eight years old. He has some medical issues to resolve but we will keep you posted on this sweet old soul!
Steele is the kind of guy we like here at TXHR--tough but sweet. He was picked up in Fort Worth and appeared to have been hit and rolled by a car. He had some deep cuts to one of his hind legs but is recovering. He is around three years old and a sweet boy despite the rough time he's had.
Sweet Tizzy is around two years old. She came into rescue with some medical issues after her owners moved and did not have time for her. She is recovering well and can't wait to start her new life.
Velveeta is around a year old and came to us with an ugly case of mange. 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.
This little cutie is Watermelon. She is around a year old. Super sweet, is doing great at her Foster home and loves to play with her canine foster siblings. Watermelon is a typical young girl with husky energy to spare!!
Whitney is a stunning beautiful girl with a heart to match. We think she was dumped in a field after being used for breeding. We are very grateful to the kind family who kept her safe over the holidays and looked for her owners (to no avail). Little Whitney is now on her way to a better life. We think she is around a year old and would love a nice foster home.
