Betty is a true survivor! Sole heiress to the throne in a small Turkish Province (the Queen was a ‘dog lady’), Betty was cast out of her Royal Family because she fell in love with a peasant hound and refused to abandon him, at all costs! As part of her banishment she was fashioned with a very tight metal cable around her neck and tied by rope from her neck to a remote cactus, deep in West Texas somewhere. She managed to survive by eating the cactus until she finally ate it down below the rope that held her captive. But the damage was done…she grew up tied to that cactus and her adult neck was now much bigger around than when the cable & rope were tied on. Both had become nooses, cutting into her skin & leaving open wounds. When I found her she was dragging both, near starved to death and with a look of fear and concern in her eyes that would make anyone stop to help. She was so happy when I removed them that she ran as fast as she could in big circles and has been my best buddy every since! She’s a very sweet girl who loves her people deeply and will do anything for you. She wants nothing more than to make you happy and she goes about doing it with such contagious joy that it makes you stop & smile. She loves to play and is a pretty goofy girl, jumping and circling as if she’s putting on a show for you. Betty will make a great addition to any family so come meet her today and get a glimpse of what true royalty is all about!

About Tall Tails Animal Rescue - TX Chapter

Come Meet Our Pets...

Most of our dogs are located in Hankamer, TX about 45 minutes East of Houston, TX however we do ship all over the United States and to Canada.

Our Adoption Process...

Local adoption fees are $175. Our animals come completely vaccinated, spayed/neutered and microchipped.

Out of the area and out of state adoptions are possible, please contact us for the transport costs.

Please email for a pre-adoption application; once approved we can set up a meet & greet to see if the dog is a perfect fit for your family. If you decide to take the dog home, we do a trial run to make sure he or she fits well in it's new environment before finalizing the adoption paperwork.
