“A righteous man has regard for the life of his beast, but the compassion of the wicked is cruel.” Proverbs 12:10
STXBA’s primary mission is to save the lives and restore the reputation of what is known as canine Bully Breeds in the South Texas region. This mission will be held through proper education and sharing the knowledge of the breeds deriving from the original bulldogs ancestry; and implementing proper responsibility while providing sanctuary for these forgotten canines in an attempt to provide forever homes for the misunderstood and loving breeds of the Bully Breed class.
Extensive fenced yards with adequate sunlight and shade give kind and hospitality to the once forgotten Bullies, from various age ranges and charming personalities these wonderful beasts will once again confide in mankind and exemplify courageous and loyal characteristics of true companionship between a man and his dog…..We are “South Texas Bully Alliance.”
An alliance is an agreement or friendship between two or more parties, made in order to advance common goals and to secure common interests. STXBA is an alliance of Bully Breed advocates who recognized the true nature of the wonderful beast that make up the Bully Breed class, and the defaults associated with Breed Specific Legislation (BSL). All members have extensive backgrounds in animal handling and/or animal shelter administration. These experiences brought the alliance together to realize the must needed opportunity to restore the reputation of canine Bully Breeds in Houston and surrounding areas (the breeds most often euthanized in a sheltering environment). Our principal goal is to properly educate and share the courageous and yet family loving traits that are often misconstrued by media exploitation.
We have several bullies available for adoption which vary in age, sex, and size. All of our bullies will be spayed/neutered before adoption; this is in an effort to decrease the overpopulation of the most over breed canines in our country (bully breeds). This means that our bullies are for family pets and can not be used for breeding purposes or any other reason than as a companion animal. Your application will be reviewed by a representative of STXBA who will contact you with further instructions within 1-3 days of your submission.
Our adoption fee is non-refundable as it is considered a monetary and charitable donation of which helps support future bullies in need of rescue. The standard adoption fee is $150.00 for any bully adopted through our organization.
Once your application has been approved, a board member from our organization will arrange for a time to visit with you at your home of where you will intend to provide sanctuary for the newly adopted bully.
*Please note that we are not trying to invade your privacy or trying to make the adoption process difficult. Our organization and the fosters/volunteers who deal with the rescued bullies on a daily basis put a lot of love and dedication into re-homing them and we just want what’s best for both bully and adopter(s).

Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
