Our Adoptable Dogs

Name: Apollo

Apollo is an energetic, curious, adorable little guy! He looks like he's going to get to be a big boy when he's grown. He's fun-loving and playful. A Pyr mix (not sure what other breed at this point), with a single dew claw. He's got really soft fur, and is very well behaved in the car. His foster family is still learning about him and will share more as they get to know him!


Name: Appa

Appa came to us with some issues, but has been working diligently with the Texas Dogfather and has improved greatly! He has learned so much about how fun and wonderful the world can be. In training he learned how to integrate into a pack and socialize with dogs. He's also learned that people are AWESOME! He is now ready for foster and/or adoption! We'd love to be able to integrate him into the right home environment. The Dogfather feels that Appa will do best in a calm home without small children, with a family who can help him maintain his confidence and will provide stability. Does this sound like you? If so, let us know! Note: his training comes with two free sessions with the Dogfather to ensure that communication with Appa remains consistent. WIN!

Name: Caesar (Manfred)

Caesar is a sweet, mellow boy. He's great with children and other dogs. He is house, leash and crate trained. He loves being indoors with the family but also loves to go for a walk. His approximate birthday is August 10, 2015. He's a shy, sensitive fellow, who needs a little time to adjust to new environments. Everyone who has met him just absolutely loves him! His foster is feeding him nutritious food so that he can add the extra pounds needed. Caesar is already neutered, up-to-date with his all his shots, and ready to be in his forever home with his new family!


Name: Dolly

(MEDICAL HOLD)As you can see, Dolly has had a rough go of it. Originally the shelter couldn't even estimate her age correctly because she was in such rough shape. We had her tested for everything and she's a very lucky girl. HW- and negative for mange! She's got a horrible infection in both ears, and her skin is super irritated from a massive flea infestation. We've rid her of fleas and had her professionally bathed. She's already feeling much better! She will be available for adoption as soon as we get her vetted, get her ears treated and have her spayed. She is a LARGE girl, weighing in at about 87 lbs (and she's thin), quiet and sweet! She's a keeper for sure! Watch for updated photos as we get her healed up and feeling better.


Name: Ella

Ella is the sweetest, loviest young lady! She just finished raising some of the cutest puppies EVER! She did a marvelous job of it and now she's looking for her forever home where she can be loved - just for being her own sweet self! So far, she's been good with people of all shapes and sizes and has greeted other dogs at the vet with ease! She will need to be spayed as soon as the vet thinks she's ready. Her perfect home should be reasonably calm. Not sure how she feels about cats yet.


Name: Hobble aka Hobbs

(ADAPTION PENDING) Hobbs has had a rough start in life. Approximately 12 months old, he was found as a stray, really thin, with an old leg injury that had healed in a bad position. Lucky for him, he was found and cared for by a vet! Unfortunately, the leg couldn't be saved, but that's not slowing Hobbs down a bit! He seems to be a submissive guy, who wants nothing more than to play, or snuggle up on the couch and sleep. We aren't sure about kitties yet, but he's been good with the other dogs in the house. It doesn't seem like he's used to being inside much, so his house training is in progress. He's on medical hold for now, while he heals up from surgery. Update: 3/23/2017 Hobbs has calmed down a lot and is such a lovebug! He's healing up really nicely but needs to put on some more weight before the vet is willing to allow him to be released from medical hold.


Name: Jasmine (Dahlia)

Jasmine and Nina came into rescue together from a shelter where they had been picked up as strays. They were a little nervous at first but are coming out of their shells. Jasmine's approximate birthday is 10/14/15. She's not accustomed to stairs, which her foster mom is working on with her. She LOVES kids, and gets along great with other dogs. She is learning about leash walking and basic commands and manners. Check back for more information as we get to know her!


Name: Maximus

Maximus (est. DOB April 2016) is a lively 10 month old Pyr pup. He was surrendered from a loving home because he insisted on chasing their horse and they feared he would get hurt. Aside from that, he is the best pup...friendly, affectionate and curious about the world around him. Max is already neutered and up to date on his shots-- he is ready to go! Max is housetrained and will even use a pee pad if you leave one out for him. He loves affection and you just can't help but hug and love on this snuggle bug. Updated 3/6/17: While at his foster home, Max went after the resident kitty. The other dogs didn't appreciate that and now he's a bit insecure around other dogs. We are going to spend a little time working on that, as doggie social skills are VERY important. Good news: we met up with a few kiddos at Home Depot this weekend and he was unfazed by the poking and petting. WIN! Update: 4/04 Maximus is improving! Looks like he'll be available in about two weeks!! Update: 04/10 Maximus is off Medical Hold. He's got an ear infection but he's almost done with meds. He's ready to meet his new family!


Name: Nina (Petunia)

Nina and Jasmine were pulled from the shelter together. They were both a little shy but have been warming up quickly. Nina LOVES kids, as you can see in her photos. She's lovely and snuggly and so sweet! She seems to be a moderate to low energy lady, who is the epitome of the breed standard - gentle giant. Her birthday is estimated to be 10/14/2015, and she's an average size for a female. Come back to check for updates as we get to know her!


Name: Odie

(ADOPTION PENDING J.M.)Meet Odie! A sweet, stately gentleman who loves a good scratch and a cool, dry place to lay his head. He's an easy-going guy who is looking for his forever home. It appears that he is about 8-9 years old. Perfect for snuggles and company, and low energy so you don't have to worry about him zooming around your house! We're still learning about him, so stay tuned!
