There are 2 things you’ll notice about Petunia right off the bat.
First, those ears! Petunia (nicknamed Tuney) can link the tips of her ears together to create an impressive antenna that can tune in sound from great distances. Just be careful if you whisper the words “treat” or “go for a walk”, you may have am excited pup appear at your feet.
The second thing you’ll notice is her gorgeous prance. Petunia has the lean lanky body of a sight hound. She’ll be an excellent running companion or enjoy nice long walks with you.
The best thing about Petunia though is her personality. She’s calm and sweet, and loves people and other dogs. Some have said she's a Superstar!
Petunia and her ears are scanning for a furever home with lots of love, and plenty of treats, toys, a good bed. In short she just needs to be spoiled.

Because of the distance, it is not possible for you to meet the dog, in person, unless you come to Houston. We can often send videos and/or do FaceTime interviews to allow you to “meet” the dog.
Why should you consider adopting a dog from Houston?
Houston is the #2 kill city in the U.S. City and County shelters often take in a combined 200-300 animals per day. The number of homeless pets and resulting euthanasias are staggering -- the average "live release rate" from Houston area shelters is only about 35-50%. Houston is estimated to have over 1 million homeless animals. Over 100,000 are killed in Harris Co shelters every year. Red Collar Rescue volunteers work tirelessly to save as many as we can, but the Houston area is saturated with so many pets in need of a home and not enough adopters. To put it simply, we encourage out of state adoptions because it helps us save more lives. We hope that you will consider one of our many adoptable pets who are waiting for a second chance at a forever home - wherever it may be!
