Houston was scheduled to be put to sleep at the shelter, simply because he was scared. This big, handsome, dog friendly, young boy has come out of his shell, thanks to the great work of his caretakers. He loves to play, is good in the house, potty trained, and does great with other dogs. He can be a little head shy around people he's meeting for the first time, but warms up quickly and would love to join your family. How can you not love this dapper looking dude and that wonky ear?
The minimum adoption donation for adults is $300 and the adoption donation for puppies is $400 - $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
