  • Sex: Female
Suzy is 30 lbs and 18 months old. We think that she is a flat coat retriever mix. Suzy looks like a mini black lab. She's so cute! Suzie is shy at first so she will need a special home who will have a lot of patience with her and who will let her come around and get comfortable in a new home. A home with older kids would be best. Suzy loves to go for car rides. She also loves to play with other dogs and is good with cats. She likes to lay on the couch with her foster mom at night. She isn't a big cuddler but loves to be close and loves belly rubs.Suzy nudges the back of your leg when she wants a pet. She's follows her foster mom all over. Suzy is house trained and crate trained. She is a real sweetheart and is a quirky little girl who will win your heart.

If you are interested in meeting/adopting Suzy, please email us at livlovlafdream@yahoo.com or fill out an adoption application on our website at http://forgottendogs.org/adopt/application/ . Be sure to mention that you are looking for Suzy. - Thank you!!

About Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project

About Our Rescue Group...

We rescue in an historical area of Houston called the 5th Ward. We founded Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project November of 2011 to address what we saw as an obvious need to help the many stray, abandoned, and neglected dogs we were seeing in there. We set up feeding stations and network and pull as many as we can when a foster home or no-kill rescue group says they can take them in. One of our goals is education and we provide residents with access to free spay/neuter and rabies vaccinations. In addition, we provide other vaccinations and worming in the field to strays that we can not immediately pick up. Since November 2011 we have grown in size and have rescued over 1,000 dogs, and a few cats, from the area. We are launching a program called Habitat for Hounds through which we will donate doghouses and blankets to residents for their dogs that are kept outside. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, so all donations are tax-deductible.

Our Adoption Process...

You can find our adoption application online at http://forgottendogs.org/adopt/application/. Our adoption fees are $150 for adult dogs ages 2 and older and $175 for puppies up to 2 years old (plus an additional spay/neuter deposit on those that are too young at the time of adoption: $75 local, or $250 for long-distance adoptions). Long distance adoption transportation costs vary based on size/weight/breed of the individual dog being adopted. We have an adoption application and contract. All animals are spayed/neutered prior to adoption, if old enough, or, for young puppies, arrangements are made to have them spayed/neutered afterwards.
