Facts about Trixie

  • Color: Red/Golden/Orange/Chestnut - With White
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Meet Trixie! She is an APBT and is about as perfect as they come. She's a mature lady at about 10 years old, which means no puppy antics to deal with! Trixie is very calm with a gentle demeanor, but still has a playful side. When found in the 5th Ward, Trixie was extremely skinny, full of scars, and very weary at first. We think she may have just finished nursing one of who-knows-how-many litters and she didn't have much fur, except some patches here and there.

Trixie deserves the best of the best and is going to make someone an amazing companion where she can live out the rest of her life making up for the hardships she's faced along the way. We just know there's a perfect someone or family that is waiting on her. If you think Trixie would be a perfect fit for you or your family, please fill out an adoption application at forgottendogs.org/adoption_application or email us at info.5thward@gmail.com and specify Trixie. Thank you!

About Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project

About Our Rescue Group...

We rescue in an historical area of Houston called the 5th Ward. We founded Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project November of 2011 to address what we saw as an obvious need to help the many stray, abandoned, and neglected dogs we were seeing in there. We set up feeding stations and network and pull as many as we can when a foster home or no-kill rescue group says they can take them in. One of our goals is education and we provide residents with access to free spay/neuter and rabies vaccinations. In addition, we provide other vaccinations and worming in the field to strays that we can not immediately pick up. Since November 2011 we have grown in size and have rescued over 1,000 dogs, and a few cats, from the area. We are launching a program called Habitat for Hounds through which we will donate doghouses and blankets to residents for their dogs that are kept outside. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, so all donations are tax-deductible.

Our Adoption Process...

You can find our adoption application online at http://forgottendogs.org/adopt/application/. Our adoption fees are $150 for adult dogs ages 2 and older and $175 for puppies up to 2 years old (plus an additional spay/neuter deposit on those that are too young at the time of adoption: $75 local, or $250 for long-distance adoptions). Long distance adoption transportation costs vary based on size/weight/breed of the individual dog being adopted. We have an adoption application and contract. All animals are spayed/neutered prior to adoption, if old enough, or, for young puppies, arrangements are made to have them spayed/neutered afterwards.
