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!!

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.
