Boba was rescued from a bad situation.    She was brought into the rescue matted, emaciated, heart worm positive and full of intestinal worms.

She has been in boarding for while.  We treated her for heartworms and shaved the matts off of her body, she looks pretty rough, but just needs a loving home where she can build some confidence. 

Don't you want a special companion?   She deserves to be loved.

Hello!   We have had Boba one week.   In that time she has started to show her personality.  While she follows both my daughter Christina and I around, she appears to be claiming Chris as her human.   We have two household pets - Petey (10# dog) and Munchie (13# cat).   While Petey and Boba "get along" - Muchie teases her - which gets Boba barking.  Boba does stop barking when told "no".     She does not seek the cat out.

Boba sleeps through the night with one of her human's in the room and she is house broken.  When Boba is outside she explores the backyard.   There has been no digging in the yard.   She does not stay in the backyard for long because it is to warm for her.  (She is quite the fluffy dog!)

Boba enjoys being brushed and her back end scratched.    She does very well in the house.    Her biggest challenge are the stairs which are wood tread.   Going up she is very careful, coming down she is much faster.    

We had a friend over this weekend.  Boba did well.  Once the introduction was made, Boba found another human willing to scratch her and give her attention which she was fine with.

Week 2 with Boba!    Goodness, Boba is quite mellow!    She spends the day with Christina, who works from home.    She comes down stairs at breaks and lunch.   Once in a while she comes down just to see what Petey and I are doing.    We haven't been able to go out walking with her yet as it is still to hot.   Christina works at brushing her out, but she is not amused with it.   One or two passes, she is back out in the yard.   We are looking to have her groomed this week.    At this point - the family has nick named her the "floufnator" or "flouffy".  No it is not "Fluffy" LOL.   She is a very kind dog, who would really like to make friends with the cat.   LOL - the cat still prefers to tease.     We have had repairmen at the door and while she barks to let us know there is someone at the door, she wants to be petted by them.   Another good week!

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.
