Shady's Story...
Hello, my name is Shady!

I am looking for a calm and quiet forever home. I would prefer a home without children or cats, and ideally with 1 or 2 adults. I get along with some dogs, but not all. I am an independent dog and need a family that will be patient with me. I need time to adjust to a new environment with new people. I am good at communicating when I am uncomfortable. I do not like being physcally forced to do anything. If you verbally ask me to do something, I will usually abide.

I am both house trained and crate trained and will go into my kennel on command. My kennel is my safe haven and is where I like to go when I need some alone time. I do enjoy cuddling on the couch and tummy/ back rubs, but please allow me to initiate these interactions once I'm comfortable with you. I also like playing with my toys and since I'm a little bit older (4-5 years old) I will never chew on any of your belongings. If you interested in giving me a chance to join your family please fill out an adoption application on forgottendogs.org/adopt/application or if you have any questions, please contact my foster mom at sccoperude@outlook.com. Thanks!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shady, a Houston Boston Terrier/Border Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boston Terrier/Border Terrier for sale in Houston, or seeking a Boston Terrier/Border Terrier dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Houston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Boston Terrier/Border Terrier breeders who help with Boston Terrier/Border Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
