Facts about Sebastian

  • Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier/Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
He was rescued two weeks ago. The rescuer heard him crying because he was being attacked by a bunch of kids who were throwing rocks at him, trying to hurt him. He was injured and limping badly. He was so scared, it took the rescuer an hour to finally get to him. She followed him to a house, where the occupants told her that they no longer wanted him, and to just get rid of him. The rescuer gladly took him away from this horrible place and these terrible people.
She took him to the vet for his injuries, which included bites and scratches, as well as the leg injury; fortunately it was not broken. He was cleaned up and his wounds treated by the heroes at the vet's clinic. He has been diagnosed heartworm positive, but is now being treated. He was also brought up to date on all vaccines, as well as neutered.
As you can see, Sebastian is a very handsome guy! He is around 18 months old, and a pit-lab mix. Sadly, like so many rescued animals, because of what he has been through, it is going to take some time for his true self to come out, and he is understandably timid and shy and skittish around people and other dogs. He is great with cats, however, and he is very well behaved. He likes his crate, probably because it gives him a real sense of safety and he is a low energy, laid back, guy who needs his rest to recover from his trauma and the continuing heartworm treatment. He is good on a leash and he is also house trained.

About Houston Homeless Pet Project

About Our Rescue Group...

Houston Homeless Pet Project ("HHPP")is a core group of dedicated dog rescue volunteers who, between us, have over 50 years of experience in rescue in the Houston metro area. We are the rescue of last resort for those good Samaritans who find homeless dogs and are just trying to help. We are also the rescue of last resort for those hopeless animals that find themselves out of time at local shelters.

We provide rescue care, rehabilitative services, foster care and adoption placement to abandoned and stray dogs in the Houston metro area.


HHPP is an all-volunteer, foster based rescue. We don't have a shelter and rely on foster homes to provide our rescues with warm, loving home environments until they can adopted by permanent families.
