~~Hi! My name is Tory, not to be confused with Tony! I keep hearing rumors that black dogs are so hard to find permanent homes for. Why? I don't understand how the color of my hair is such a huge factor if you haven't even gotten to know me. That makes me sad! ï
My foster mom won't stop bragging about me to other people. She says I am a sweet loving girl with eyes like honey. I'm looking forward to having long walks outside with you to maintain my girlish figure. I'm still learning to walk on a leash but I'm super smart and learn things really fast. Mom said I am the second best foster dog she's ever had and she's had quite a few. I live with two foster fur brothers and we all get along great. I’m sure I won’t mind living with a cat if needed. I get along really well with the dogs I live with, however, I need a slow introduction to dogs I meet on my walks.
I am like a ninja...you never know I'm there! I am fully potty trained, house trained and while I will get into the crate, I prefer not to sleep in it overnight. I sleep with my foster human brothers in their beds and I sleep through the whole night. When I don't want to be in the boys' stinky room, Mom lets me sleep downstairs by myself. She trusts me whole heartedly to not make a mess and I keep that trust.
Other little facts about me...I am approximately 3 years old, I'm a mix between dachshund and lab. I'm not tall at all, I think I weigh about 30 lbs and I looooooooove to give kisses and cuddle and make you happy. I've never met a stranger that I didn't like. Would you please help me prove people wrong about black dogs? Give me a chance to be YOUR pet and I'll show you nothing but love. Talk to my foster mom, she'll vouch for me and tell you how to meet me. Plus, I gotta get my own home so Mom can save another dog from the shelter.
Tory is a 30 lbs, 3-1/2 year old spayed Dachshund/Labrador Retriever mix. She is currently undergoing slow kill for heartworms.
If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com. If you are interested in adopting, please complete an adoption application at www.hhfrescue.org. Thank you for considering a rescued dog!
The adoption fee includes vaccinations, bordetella, deworming, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip. There is an additional $10.99 fee for Home Again for a lifetime registration of the microchip. If adopting a puppy, the rabies and spay/neuter will be done at the same time by our vet once they are 4 months old and billed to us. It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.
