Buttons was an owner surrender to the Waco shelter back in June 2016.  She is an older gal that is super sweet with a great personality.  She is timid when you first meet her and depending on her mood can be "nippy".  But once she gets to know you, she will request that you place at the foot of your bed when bedtime rolls around!  She's not one to burrow under the covers, she just likes to keep your feet warm. 

Buttons has adjusted well to her new life with LOTS of other fosters - big & small.  She will play with the other smaller dogs, until they annoy her! Then she will find an open kennel & just watch the chaos around her.  

She's a bit overweight and we are currently rationing her food intake to help slim her down some.  But overall she's a healthy, happy older gal.  She would be great for someone living in a retirement community or an apartment.  Previous owners stated that she was fine with kids - but who knows if that owner was honest or not.  Caution should alway be used when introducing dogs to children, especially Chihuahua breeds and smaller children.

About Casa de Perro Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We rescue the animals that are at risk of being killed in local shelters. In our rescue program, we focus on the pets that have been passed over by other rescue groups that only take the “healthy and treatable pets” and “time”. Leaving their only remaining option at the shelter to be killed. Or to put it in politically correct terms…..EUTHANIZED. The number of pets we can save is dependent on donations we receive, the adoption of those already rescued and the number of foster families available to board and care for to care for those we save.
We need YOUR help! Foster – Adopt – Volunteer - Donate

Come Meet Our Pets...

We currently are not holding adoption events due to the heat. We hope to start having them again in the very near future.

Our Adoption Process...

For those interested in adopting for us here is our process: the adoption application is completed & sent to us for review. We will google the address…this is just to check for things like a busy street – if the dog happens to be a runner, that might not be an appropriate home. How close they are to schools and parks – since there are so many bully restrictions. If dog is a pit or bully breed, we will call references if they have never owned a bully breed before.
We will then call & schedule a home visit. For the home visit we ask the family to keep the dog a minimum of 2 days/nights. This is simply because at first visit the dog may be hyper or timid and not showing their true personality. We also ask that the whole family that will be interacting with the dog on a regular basis be home for this visit, if possible. At drop off we will introduce the dog to any animals currently at the home and make sure there are no aggression issues. If all goes well then we leave the dog, kennel, food for stay, bowl, bedding and leash. The family can “try” the dog for as long as they feel necessary. We’ve had families keep them weeks before making a decision.
Follow up calls will be made the following day and several days after just to touch base. If decision is made that this is their dog, then they complete the adoption contract, microchip registration form and make a tax deductible donation of agreed upon fee for the adoption of the dog. The adoption fee covers: all foster costs, food, spay/neuter, microchip, worming medication, flea/tick treatments, H/W test, H/W treatment if they test positive, H/W preventative, grooming fees + any other medical necessity while in the dog is in our care.
