~Leia (like Princess Leia)~
~Breed? Your guess is as good as ours. Microchip information has her listed as a Collie mix. Hmmm!
~7 year old Spayed Female
~UTD on shots
~House trained, unknown with a Crate, Leash trained
~Good with older kids; smaller ones seem to make her nervous. Great with other dogs. Unknown how she is with cats.
~She is HW+ and now on Heart Guard but HW treatment has not started yet.
~Very patient and respectful. Will not take food from you, not even an 18mo old carrying around a snack in her hand. You have to make her take a treat or put it in her bowl. Hardly ever barks and knows basic commands.
~ReHoming Adoption Fee: $60.00
Reason for ReHoming: She had been a stray over in the Dowdy Ferry area (in her case, Bonnieview & I20). The founder works in the area and stopped to feed her one day after seeing her several times. When the founder went to get back in her vehicle, Leia decided to follow. She went back to the gas station where she has been seen and asked about her. She had been wandering there for 3-4 months. When the founder took her to our vet, there was a microchip discovered but the man it is registered to said he gave her away long ago and did not want her back. The name for her on the chip is Leia (which she responds to) and the chip says she is 7 but our vet felt she is a few years younger, based on her teeth. There is no scar to show she is spayed, however our vet feels strongly that she is.

About North Texas ReHoming & Fostering

About Our Rescue Group...

We are Rick and Monica Kizziar. I, Monica, have been an avid animal rescuer for several years, working closely with area shelters and rescue groups and rescuing several pets myself.

A few years ago I had an pet ReHoming non-for-profit under a different name but had to fold it up after a divorce. I was very anxious to get back in and Rick was more than happy to join me. We have been married 1 year this July 2016 and are very excited to work closely together helping families find good loving home for their pets that they cannot keep.

We work very closely still with local shelters, vet clinics and rescue groups to help them market their pets by doing "courtesy posts" and working with them and their Fosters. As we progress, we will be formulating a master Foster list for vetted and approved Fosters in various areas in North Texas.

Our Adoption Process...

There is a Marketing Fee and ReHoming Fee associated with our services.

Marketing consists of us placing your pet on our Facebook page, website, here on Adopt-A-Pet and PetFinder. We do all of the screening before arranging a meet-n-greet with the families and pets in need. We will have occasional Adoption Events as well.

Our Marketing Fee (paid by family doing the ReHoming) is $40 per pet to be marketed.

Our ReHoming Fee (paid by the new family that adopts) is $60 per pet, or with bonded pairs, we offer a $20 discount and charge a reasonable $100.
