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.

Sugar Ray

  • DOB: Around December 2016
  • Weight: 40 pounds
  • Breed: Bulldog mix
  • Located: Dallas, Texas

Sugar Ray's Story

Sugar Ray was found on the side of the road in a known area of Dallas for dumping dogs.  After we searched for his owners to no avail, Sugar is ready to find his forever home.  We believe that he is an English Bulldog mix (possibly a boxer/bulldog).  He is neutered, microchipped, and current on his vaccines.  He is a couch potato that loves to give slobbery kisses.  He is good with people and other dogs, but would do best in a house without cats.  Sugar Ray tested low positive for heartworms and is currently undergoing treatment.  We expect he will have a full recovery.

Her Story

Valentina came to us from DAS.  She is 2 months old and and is a Cairn Terrier.  She was surrendered because she had a history of seizures.  We renamed her Valentina (Tina for short) because  St. Valentine is the patron saint of epilepsy, so we thought the female version of his name would be perfect for her.

Ostara came to us from DAS Easter weekend.  She is 12 years old and as sweet as can be.  If you love seniors then she is the dog for you.  She is potty trained, and she loves to walk around outside and lay in the sun.  She also loves to snuggle and lay on the couch.  She doesn't have many teeth so she has been eating wet food only.  She is spayed, microchipped and current on vaccines.
