Cricket's Story...
Cricket has come a long way from getting bailed out of BARC as a mom with her pups! She's now a delightful indoor companion with nice manners and she's a sweet, laid back kinda gal. She's friendly and affectionate and really wants to be your buddy. She likes both men and women equally as well, so she's fine in a home with either or both. She's not high energy, so she's good with a morning walk, then she's happy to nap while you're at work. She's not destructive, doesn't require crating and she's housetrained. She's happy to smile and follow you around the house when you get home from work then chill out and watch some t.v.

Cricket's foster mom has been working on her basic obedience and she's doing very well. If you are interested in a forever companion well on her way to good manners, then Cricket might be the girl for you! She's been treated for heartworms and now on preventative, she's current on her vaccinations, spayed and microchipped. Please visit for additional information and photos of Cricket and contact her foster mom at for more information.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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