Facts about Gypsy

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever/Cattle Dog Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Gypsy is a 2-year-old labrador/heeler mix that was living on the streets, but was smart enough to win over the hearts of some apartment dwellers with her sweet disposition and submissive approach. She quickly adjusted to being indoors, is house trained, and is very eager to please. She learned the 'sit' command in one day!

Gypsy loves to play and run, so she's best suited for someone who is very active and/or has a yard. She runs two miles with her foster mom with no problems! Even though Gypsy has a lot of energy, she also likes relaxing with a chew toy and resting in a crate. She'd love to cuddle with you but understands if you don't want her to. Gypsy is spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped.

To adopt Gypsy, please fill out an adoption application on our website at forgottendogs.org/adopt/application, or email us at info5thward@gmail.com and specify Gypsy. 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.
