Hi, my name is Bugsy. Why, you ask? Your guess is as good as mine! Those 2-legged creatures called humans decided it was cute…like ME, although many of them tell me I am handsome! I think that’s better than cute. Is it? Let me tell you a little about myself. I am a Pit Bull/Lab mix and I am almost 3 years old. I weigh 55 pounds and I am neutered, potty-trained, crate-trained and I am up to date on all of my shots! Pretty good, huh?
Hey! Read all the way to the bottom. You will see that I am still in Houston, TX but I want to get OUT of Houston and OUT of Texas so I can have a really good life. I want to see Texas in my rear view mirror!
Did you know THIS about pitties? Well, during World War II, we were used as babysitters! Yes, that’s right! If the lady of the house went outside to hang laundry, for instance, we would keep an eye on the kiddos and, if they cried or needed her, we would alert her to the children’s needs. Cool, huh?
Can you stand to hear even more stuff about me? I hope so. Here goes. I LOVE people (gotta have my peeps). I’m not crazy about all dogs, just some of them. I want to be the one-and-only. I don’t like kitty cats either. So, it’s just you and me, kid! I walk well on a leash unless I see a killer squirrel or a cat! I could save you from them! I am also learning to “heel” and my foster mom says that I am doing an excellent job. I will sit for a treat and accept it nicely and I LOVE my chew toys and chew bones. I’ll share them with you. OK? I will also share my love and devotion and I’ll even scratch your ears if you’ll scratch mine. Deal? Let’s go home!
So, what are you waiting for? If you would like for a great guy like me to go live with you, please email Susan at scotton@swbell.net or call her at 713-545-2519 or Theresa Eatherly at 713-291-5985. My adoption fee is $650 and includes my vetting, neutering, microchip, health certificate, travel crate AND transportation on United Airlines from Houston, TX to areas in the North Central U. S., Northwest U. S. and Canada and will be arranged by the rescue group. (This is a courtesy posting.)

About A Better Life - Portland

About Our Rescue Group...

We rescue dogs from the streets of Houston, TX, vet them, recuperate them from health problems, bring them to full health and then work very hard to get them adopted out-of-state. Houston, TX has over ONE MILLION stray dogs. Thousands of perfectly healthy dogs, along with sick and dying dogs that are picked up, are euthanized every single day. Houston, TX is saturated with dogs. Everyone who WANTS a dog HAS a dog. We can only save lives by getting dogs out of our region. We have found the very best adopters in the Northeast and Northwest U. S. and Canada.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fee is $650 to fly your dog to the nearest airport that (1) has a direct flight from Houston, TX and (2) can accommodate the size travel crate your dog would fly in. If there is no direct flight, then we do have to schedule flights with layovers. We only use United Airlines because of their PetSafe Program. They are the only airline equipped to fly dogs in year-round weather conditions. The dogs get the same air and heat as in the passenger cabin.
