Adult Dogs for Adoption

The following adult dogs are now available for adoption:

Note: The adult dog adoption fee is $300.00. Adult dogs are those aged 1 to 7 years old. This fee helps defer the cost of vaccinations and other medical needs. It also helps with food costs, and supplies.


Daisy is a sweet, wild child. She is a 1 1/2-year-old Lab/Pit Bull mix. She is loving and adores other dogs and humans. Daisy is playful and is extremely friendly. She just wants a safe, loving home to call her own. We believe she has had a litter of puppies in the past. As with many Texas dogs, Daisy is heartworm positive, but has begun her treatment. Once she is done with the treatment, she will be spayed. Come meet her, give her some cookies (which she absolutely loves) and watch her figure out what all that white stuff on the ground is!

This is Sophie, a sweet German Shepherd mix. She's a Texas girl who has been through a lot in her short life. She's around a year old, is up-to-date on shots, spayed and microchipped. She's looking for a wonderful family, with no other animals, to love her.






Where's Spot? Well, right here! Our newest cutie is Spot, a one-and-a-half year-old Texas transplant, possibly a Pointer/Boxer mix. He's a real lover! We think he used to belong to someone because all he wants is attention and love. He gets along well with other dogs, he's playful and friendly, and he has lots of energy. Spot is up-to-date on all his shots, he's micro-chipped, and is neutered. He's a cuddler, a 43-pound baby who's a lap dog! He spent several hours on a volunteer's lap while at a farmer's market. We think he is easily trainable and just needs a loving family to start teaching him some commands. WE ARE STILL LOOKING FOR A FOSTER FOR THIS SWEET BOY!




Meet Chocolate. This boy is stunning! Our best guess is that he's a Lab/Shepherd mix couch-potato. He is looking for a wonderful family to love him to pieces! Chocolate is around 2-years-old, up-to-date on his shots, neutered and micro-chipped once here. Please fill out an application if you are interested in adopting him.


Scrappy & Pepe

Scrappy and Pepe are best of friends and need to be adopted together!

Pepe, who is around 2 years old and about 18 pounds, is a real cutie! Pepe is the dog on the left in the photos below. As to breed, that is a complete guess. He's on the smaller side, so he could be a Chihuahua mix with maybe some kind of terrier, maybe even some Lab. All we know is that he is way too cute!

Scrappy, who is about a year old, is the dog on the right in the photos below. He's good with other dogs, adults and children. He is quiet, good-natured, friendly, and goofy-looking. He's looking for a forever home and is ready to go. Scrappy is up-to-date on shots, dewormed, and neutered.

Please fill out an adoption application for this pair of best friends! You won't regret it.




Here is a solo photo of Pepe.

This is Gus, a Chow/Shepherd/Retriever mix. He's around 4 years old and a bit overweight - now on a diet. He came to us from Texas and is in boarding. We would love to find him a forever home, but if that is not possible, a foster home would be a great start. He is dog-selective so it would be better to be the only animal in the home or to have a meet-and-greet with the resident dog ahead of time. He is neutered and up-to-date on his shots. He's wonderful with humans and just wants to be loved. It broke my heart to have to leave him in boarding. As I was driving away, I saw him looking after my car as he whined. Will you please give this big, beautiful boy a chance?

Mama Bella! Bella is around 1 year old and is a Lab/Basset Hound mix - a "bassador". This sweet, loving girl delivered four puppies on November 28th. She is nursing her puppies and will not be available to go to a permanent home until her puppies are weaned and adopted. However, we have started looking for a home for her so she'll be all set to go by the end of January. Bella is sweet, gentle, friendly and loving. She's a good mama who takes care of her brood. She will receive all her shots after she has weaned her puppies. She has tested positive for heartworm and her treatment will begin as soon as she is no longer nursing. Green Pup will cover the cost of that treatment.

Buddy is a cute little Min Pin (we think) who is around 2-3 years old and weighs 23 pounds. Really, it's a guess as to what he is. He's totally cute, though. According to his foster Mom, he loves to play with other dogs and people. He loves bones, but she's not too sure whether he likes toys. He's energetic as most young dogs are, but he loves - and here she emphasizes LOVES - to snuggle with people on a couch or bed. He is a total lovebug! His foster Mom believes he'll do well with a family with kids and, if there is not another dog, one that provides him with enough exercise. He's up-to-date on all his shots and is neutered. He'll be microchipped soon.

Freckles & Butterscotch

These two lovely babies, Freckles and Butterscotch, must be adopted together; they are a bonded sibling pair who came from an abusive situation in Georgia. They are both Hound mixes around 3 to 4 years old. The tan colored one is Butterscotch (boy) and the white with tan spots is Freckles (girl).

Freckles is a gorgeous, absolutely precious girl who, unfortunately, is still very wary of new people and new situations. She is sweet and lovable, but still quite timid around strangers. When she gets scared, she will immediately roll over on her back, but once she’s comfortable around a person, she’ll prance around and bask in the attention. Her Georgia foster mom describes her as 100% innocence!

Her brother Butterscotch is a happy-go-lucky dog who you’d never know went through anything in the past. He is extremely grateful to be alive. He’s loving, playful and without quirks.

Beamer was saved from a hoarding situation. He was one of 12 dogs living in a home with no humans. He is a survivor! His foster mom says he loves people, though he has to get to know you first. He has no interest in other dogs and will walk right by them, but he does like cats. Once he's comfortable with you, he wants to sit on your lap and fall asleep. He knows basic commands, is housebroken and is not destructive at all. We have not had him around kids yet. Beamer needs work walking on the leash. He does take treats gently out of your hands. He is a special, wonderful boy who is very smart and willing to learn and please. He is estimated to be around 4 years old and is up-to-date on shots.




Beautiful Charlie came to us from Texas where he had a tough life. The vet has estimated his age to be around 6 and we believe he is St. Bernard/Fox Hound mix. We believe he was abused, as he watches where your hands are all the time, as if waiting to be hit. He does take cookies gently, though. There are what look to be burn marks on his back and scars on his head and face. He is nervous, and shakes until he knows you. He enjoys walks on the leash and does well at it. At the moment, we would not recommend a home with another dog as there needs to be more testing done. Charlie does need a foster or adopter with plenty of experience who understands him and has patience and time to dedicate to him. He has so much potential and looks at you with such soulful eyes. He is heartworm positive, but is undergoing treatment for it. Please give him a chance. With love, trust, and time he will flourish.





Meet Sandy, a Yellow Lab mix. Sandy is around 7-years-old. She is a sweet, loving girl who craves attention, but who might do better as an only dog. She is an owner surrender. She is up-to-date on her shots, spayed and will be micro-chipped soon.
