Peppermint Patty's Story...
Meet Peppermint Patty! She has a special story to tell. About 3 months ago her foster mom was doing her regular volunteer time at the Houston City Shelter, feeling especially happy she had helped a very nice adopter select a puppy to adopt. It was the last of Patty’s litter…a gorgeous fluffy black and white pup. When she went into the cage to get the last pup out, Patty made her move. She did not growl…as many momma dogs might do. She did not cower toward the back of the cage either. Instead, she gave her best, most soulful look, gazed up at the volunteer, and gently rubbed her head against her leg. I guess that did the trick, because, her new foster mom decided this sweet girl DESERVED a second chance and boy has she proven that statement right! Of course, at the time she was very emaciated and had a bad case of heartworms. Almost 3 months later…she is a gorgeous girl, with plenty of meat on her bones and she has now finished her heartworm treatment. As payment to her foster mom, she has been the most excellent houseguest. She is doing great with her housetraining, she LOVES to play with the kids in the house and they love her. She gets along great with the other dogs in the house, big and small, is quiet in her crate and is learning to sit and other commands with ease. She’s not a big barker and she has never dug up anything or tried to get out of the backyard. Patty is about 40 lbs full grown.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Peppermint Patty, a Houston Pointer/Boxer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pointer/Boxer for sale in Houston, or seeking a Pointer/Boxer 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 Pointer/Boxer breeders who help with Pointer/Boxer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
