Hook’s Story

This dog was found on the side of the road with a hook through his leg around his tendon. He was taken to an emergency vet hospital. After 3 hours of surgery they removed the hook and sewed up the hole. He has recovered nicely and luckily there was no damage to his leg. He has been neutered, he has his shots, he tested negative for heartworm and is microchipped.


Hook is currently looking for his forever home. He would be best in a home by himself.  Hook does not do well with cats or small dogs. He doesn't try to hurt them, but he does like to chase them.  He plays rough (due to his breed, age, and size) so he would also be best with older children. He needs to be in an active household since he has a lot of energy and needs a lot of attention.  He loves to run and play catch. He needs a lot of training but has already learned a few commands and is eager to learn new tricks.  He is a sweet boy, and needs a family that will love him and appreciate his goofy personality.

Billy

  • DOB: 2014
  • Weight: 12 pounds
  • Breed: Cairn terrier mix
  • Located: Dallas, Texas

His Story

 Billy is a love bug that loves to be held. He has soulful eyes that stare deep into your soul. He is currently being fostered with other dogs and he is fine. He is also being fostered with cats. Most of the time he is okay around them, but he definitely wants to chase them. Billy's favorite place to be is on your lap, and if you pick him up he will wrap his arms around you and hold on tightly.


He does get nervous and scared which is why he might not be great around young children. He would do fine with older children.


Billy is 5 years old, and we are not entirely sure his breed but he weighs 12 lbs. He is microchipped, vaccinated and neutered.

His Story

If you love underbites, Ehrie is the dog for you. He has the absolute cutest face! Ehrie is a love bug that loves to be held and cuddled. He will lay as close to you as he can. He is very playful and active and loves to be outside. 


Ehrie is a bit of an escape artist so you will have to make sure your yard is secure. He figured out the dog door within hours and is housebroken.

Duane

  • DOB: 2019
  • Weight: 25 pounds
  • Breed: Pit bull mix
  • Located: Dallas, Texas

His Story

Duane is a big boy that is full of energy. He is 15 weeks old and weighs around 25 lbs. He is a mischievous puppy that loves to play with squeaky toys. He is fostered with other dogs and cats and he does well with both. He is a big clumsy baby and he does play rough, but he is as sweet as can be. I don't think he knows his own strength.


Since he is still a puppy we are working on potty training. He is good at using the dog door but has an occasional accident inside.


We believe that he will be a 60-80lb adult, but we don't know for sure. He came to us as a stray puppy at 5 weeks old.


He would make someone a wonderful pet. However he will need more training as he gets older.
