My Story
Bumble was found wandering an urban area of Houston. He was pretty terrified being out there and dodging traffic and well meaning people trying to catch him. He sought shelter in open garage while someone was washing their car, so she thought quickly and just closed the door! He was so grateful to be rescued!!
He is a high energy, playful young dog. Knows commands, crate trained and potty trained - no accidents yet! He is very shy at first, but that could just be because what he has been through as he was being chased by a whole neighborhood! He takes several days to warm up, but then he is your best friend! See short video! He is super bouncy and smart - he would be great at agility games.
We had him shaved because he had some matting on his legs and the vet thought it would just be best to shave him completely so she could examine him fully and no one would have to struggle to brush him out, being that he was so scared, but it will grow back and he will be fluffy again! He will need to be groomed every 8 weeks at the vet clinic.
He is healthy, neutered, UTD on shots, Heartworm negative and on flea and heartworm prevention. He tolerates other friendly small/medium dogs his size. He prefers to play with females only. BUMBLE WEIGHS 24 lbs, he is NOT a small Poodle.
He is brand new into our program, so at this time, while he adjusts to his foster home. We do feel he would do best in a home without children. NO exception. Older children may be fine (14yrs +). Bumble needs some manners and he is mouthy- training is a must. He likes to play rough and uses his mouth a little too much right now - he is not aggressive, just doesn't have manners.
Poodles were used as hunting dogs originally and Bumble does display some prey drive - he tries to catch birds and squirrels. He is FAST, too.
Must have vet references. We do home checks. Once adopted, he MUST attend a manners and obedience class, at Peace, Love and Dogs - no exceptions.

Meet Peanut & Buttercup. They were found, possibly dumped at a park 4th of July weekend. They need a foster home until owners or New Homes can be found. Fully vetted, healthy. Crate trained. Potty trained - no accidents yet. Love muffins. They can be separated. Peanut is a Havanese or LowChen mix, approx. 3 yrs old. Buttercup is approx. 2 yrs old, Cairn Terrier mix - she may be Peanut's puppy. Finder could not keep, and we didn't want them to end up in an already full shelter.

Max was abandoned and needs a foster now...please share

Max's Story:  He was abandoned by the used car lot after it was sold. 2 of his friends have found homes - he is all by himself out there. He was so well behaved at the adoption event today too. He didn't want to get out of my car to go back to the used car lot. Very sad. He was good with older children that were there to pet him. He ...loved on everyone that he met. He is a bigger guy at 65 lbs and he is 18 months old, so he may get to be 70-75 lbs as an adult. We think he is a Pointer Mix or Smooth Coated Border Collie Mix. Fully vetted - UTD on shots, deworming and neutered. He will come with a FULL TRAINING SCHOLARSHIP that we are providing. I will even loan you a crate if you would be so kind to foster him until a forever home is found -- it is so dang hot out there and he is outside 24/7, even in this storm. We have been granted 1 week to move him to a foster or forever home or he then will go to shelter and they are full, so he will be marked for euthanasia. This is MAX.
