Rufus's Story...
About 5 months ago, a litter of seven beautiful pups was dumped at BARC. They were only 5 weeks old at the time, and scheduled to be euthanized. Luckily for them, a kind foster stepped in and today they are some of the most beautiful pups you will ever see! Only problem…they are not little bitty pups and more, they are currently 6 months old and eating the foster mom out of the house! There are STILL four puppies remaining out of the original litter of seven and they are READY for their forever homes! Our best guess is that they are part Lab, German Shepherd and/or Aussie mix pups. These are truly the sweetest, most loving, most laid back pups you will ever meet. There are two boys -- one a chocolate with a white chest and amber eyes “Rufus” (not pictured) and one a golden color with green eyes “Sawyer” -- and two girls -- one golden with a beautiful dark mask and amber eyes “Goldie”, and one (the runt) a beautiful gold and chocolate mix with amber eyes “Princess”. Fully grown, they should be anywhere between 45-60 lbs. They are spayed/neutered, have had all their shots (including rabies), and are microchipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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