Facts about Phelps

  • Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
8/8/16 Phelps was rescued from being shot... the constable came and asked us to step in and save his life. Thankfully it was not a life threatening injury but it could have been had we not removed him from the situation. He came to the rescue and immediately got in the tub of water to swim and cool off.... seeing as Michael Phelps is the big winner right now, we wanted this boy to be a winner, too!

Despite the breed, this boy is very sweet, loves to walk on a leash and is a good dog. He was in a pasture with a horse and her new colt, which he did not hurt, and of course that owner said her didn't shoot him but who knows... he need saving and we are glad we could do it! Phelps deserves a good life, and we hope it can be with you!

About Texas Best Choices Animal Rescue

About Our Shelter...

We started rescuing dogs in 2001 and became a non profit animal rescue in 2006 out of the sheer need to save animals from the streets, and pick up the ones dropped at our doorstep. We promote spay/neuter, and last year found forever homes for 129 animals from our location, and adopted over 400 through off site adoption..

Our Adoption Process...

We have a simple contract ensuring that our rescue will be well taken care of, medically and physically, will never be tied or chained, and that a secure fenced area is provided for outdoor play. We want for each a loving home and to become part of a family. Every animal is up to date on shots and spay/neuter is required.
