Shep is a 8 month-1 year old, around 50 lb, shepherd mix. In addition to being absolutely stunning and unique looking, he is the sweetest boy ever. Gets along great with all people, kids, and other dogs big and small. Shep has pretty good manners and hasn't shown any protectiveness over treats or food. He's medium-high energy with a playful puppy personality and would do best in a household with a more active lifestyle and who understands the shepherd disposition. Shep is started on house training and crate training. He's being fostered in Houston and will be transported upon adoption. Adoption fee is $650 and includes vetting and transport costs
Southern Dog is a Houston, Texas based rescue. We are a very small foster based rescue, so the dogs live in home at all times, not in a shelter. Every dog in our rescue either comes from a kill shelter in Houston or straight off the streets. Our goal is to save as many dogs as we can from the deplorable animal overpopulation in the south. Just Houston has over 1.2 million stray animals at all times, hundreds of thousands of dogs living on chains their whole lives, and over 100,000 dogs euthanized for space every year. Our goal is to get as many dogs as we can out of the south and into loving, forever homes in the northern states, while trying to educate about spay/neuter in Houston and enact animal welfare/breeding legislation.
Our Adoption Process...
1. Adoption application, including vet reference, must be filled out and on file 2. Phone interview if application is approved 3. Home check if applicable (case by case basis) 4. Adoption contract including a clause that the dog be returned to the rescue if at any point during his/her life if the adopter can no longer keep. Adoption fees are typically $700 for puppies $650 adults, but can increase or decrease on a case by case basis. Fees are for dogs being transported out of Texas, all costs for ground transport/vetting included in adoption fee. Adoption fees typically do not cover all vetting and care for the dog, however any and all residual goes to the care of the next dog taken into the rescue.
