Hello! I'm Catfish and I'm looking for my forever family! I'm a blue brindle pitbull mix who was saved from euthanization at a high-kill shelter by my first foster family back in March. Since then, I’ve been hanging tight while I completed heartworm treatment. But now I’m ready to settle in with my perfect family.

I'm only 2+ years old, but I’m an old man at heart. I love people and my very energetic foster sister, but really I'd probably rather be an only child because she is so hyper! I thrive with lots of love, affection and attention, and will not hesitate to let you know when I'm not done being petted. I have proven to be a good companion for kids (I lived with a small human for 3 whole months!) and other dogs, but I'd probably do best with an older or calmer dog brother or sister since I'm so chill. I am mostly okay with cats, but my foster mom thinks I’d chase ‘em if they gave me a chance!
When my original foster mom, Amy, saved me from BARC in Houston right before I was scheduled for euthanization, the doctors found out I was HW+. Fortunately, Amy took me to get my heartworm treatments and I just finished my last round. I have been fully vaccinated and neutered, and now just need regular routine check-ups and heartworm and flea preventatives.

Please visit my facebook page at the link below to see video and more pictures of me and to follow my journey to finding my humans. If you think you might be the one for me, email my foster parents at, and they will ask you to fill out an application. If everything looks good, then we can meet!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Catfish, a Houston Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Houston, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Houston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
