Facts about Tessa

  • Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier/Border Collie Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
**Tessa is currently being fostered in HOUSTON. She is available for out-of-state adoption as well to the perfect family. Her adoption fee is $500 US, which covers her flight to her new family, a travel kennel, and she is fully vetted. There will also be an additional fee of roughly $150 Canadian at customs when you pick her up.**

Tessa was pulled from the local kill shelter the day she gave birth to 6 beautiful puppies. When the puppies were 9 days old Tessa became very ill and had to have exploratory surgery to see if there were any more tennis ball pieces in her stomach. This poor girl has had a rough life and wasn’t very sure of everyone or everything going on but she LOVES her foster mom & dad.

Tessa is now in training at Circle K9 where she is learning her confidence through obedience training. She knows sit with an implied stay, down with an implied stay, heal, post and here. She will need someone that understands that new things will always scare her initially but with a confident leader she will thrive. She bonds so much with her person and doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. She is an absolute sweetheart that needs someone who will understand her, continue to work with her training and love her as she will them.

We would love to be able to send her straight to her forever home from training so that her new family can continue to work with her and not throw her back in to a foster/shelter type environment.

We believe Tessa is 1.5 - 2 year old American Staffordshire Terrier / Border Collie Mix. She weighs about 45 pounds.

**Tessa is spayed, fully vaccinated, microchipped and doing very well in her foster home. She is ready to find her family to complete her transformation. If our sweet girl sounds like a perfect match for your family, please email us at pawhuggers@gmail.com for more information or to complete an adoption application please go to www.pawhuggers.org, hover over the Adoptables tab and then click on Adoption Application. Her adoption fee is $500 US to help cover the cost of her airline flight and her travel crate.

About Paw Huggers - Canada

About Our Rescue Group...

Paw Huggers Animal Rescue is a non-profit, no kill, and all volunteer animal rescue based in Tomball, Texas. Our mission is to rescue abandoned and neglected dogs and cats, and provide them with a safe living environment and medical care until a permanent, loving home is found. Paw Huggers Animal Rescue relies solely on volunteers, fosters, and donations.

We at Paw Huggers are grateful for such a giving group of foster volunteers. By fostering an animal in need, you are able to show them what it is like to be in a safe environment full of love. Many of our animals have not had the chance, or have forgotten, what it is like to be part of a family.

Fostering a dog or cat is a tangible and rewarding way to make a difference in that animals life. Every foster space that we have available takes another animal off of the streets. It is difficult to learn the true personality of an animal that is caged all day in a boarding facility. By fostering these dogs and cats we are able to learn their personalities and better evaluate them for their forever home.
