Facts about Spirit

  • Breed: Boxer/American Bulldog Mix
  • Color: White - With Brown Or Chocolate
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Spirit is an amzing dog! She is social and gentle - very easy dog. Her temperament is great and even when she was nursing her babies, she gave kisses to any visitors that came near. She let foster mom handle them without any qualms and was not reactive to a nearby cat, other looking concerned for her babies. She may be good with cats too! She is terrific with other dogs, and would be fine with kids. She is not a jumper, but does paw at you sometimes when excited. She is not the best on leash, but just need more practice.

Spirit was surrendered by a 5th ward resident in August of 2015. She had just given birth, two days prior, to a litter of 6 puppies who became known as the Rockstar Pups. All but two of them have gone on to find permanent homes, and now it's mama's turn to be somebody's baby! Can she be your baby???

Spirit is spayed, crate/housetrained, microchipped, up to date with shots, heartworm negative, and good with other dogs. Apply to adopt Spirit at http://forgottendogs.org/adopt/application/ or contact us at info.5thward@gmail.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.
