PRECIOUS! Rascal has stolen the hearts of everyone he has met. Some horrible person dumped him on the streets of Houston to fend for himself. Thankfully, Rascal found some good samaritans who made sure he had food and water until he could be caught.
Initially, he is cautious. But 5 seconds later, he is a cuddle bug. He loves toys. Bouncing around with his favorite ball, or rope toy, he is a happy boy even though people have let him down. He finds his own happiness.
Rascal is a cattle dog and is a bit mouthy. He knows it is a no no, but can't help himself if he gets excited.
His perfect family will be an active family as this breed are working dogs. They need to be challenged. Older children will be perfect for him.
Wouldn't you love to add a perfect dog to your family! You can't find a better match.
Puppies that are under 4 months old cannot be adopted outside of our Veterinary Service area. Please call for specific locations.
Children under 8 years old often are not a good match for our puppies and dogs. In order to protect both, your child and our rescued dogs/puppies from harm, we seldom if ever adopt to families with young children.
Once your application is approved, we will schedule a meet and greet at one of our adoption events. Thank you for considering a rescue!

Puppies cannot be adopted outside of the Houston area until they are spay/neutered after they are 4 months old.
It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.
NOTE: In our bios, we provide information based on our volunteer's experience with a particular dog; such as temperament, training, and ability to get along with others.
AARF is a 501(c)3 Non Profit, all breed, no kill organization. Our group is always in need of donations in order to continue to give the needed medical care to our rescues. Adoption fees do not begin to cover all of the medical costs. Any donation, no matter how small is a big help and is greatly appreciated. Please help us to continue to help them. Thank you.
