Carter is a cute Boxer mix with a gorgeous brindle coat. He was born around September 2014 and is almost 3 years old now.

Our street team, who feeds stray and neglected dogs in a bad part of town, found him laying motionless in the middle of the road. Luckily, after calling out to him, he happily came limping down to greet our volunteer. Poor Carter was malnourished and he had an injured knee. Yet, he was as sweet as sugar and just couldn’t believe his luck, someone finally noticed him and filled up his tummy with delicious food.

Carter is currently living in a loving foster home and has adjusted nicely. He had surgery to repair his knee and his leg has healed. He gained a few pounds, gotten rid of fleas and worms, and now he just won’t stop smiling! Carter is clearly pleased with his new life. He makes friends easily with humans (little ones included), other dogs and cats alike. He is house and crate trained, walks on leash without pulling, knows basic commands and is eager to please.

Here is what his foster mom has to say about him:
He is so funny and engaging in his playtime. He likes to interact with humans and dogs with kisses, snuggles and playing keep away. He loves to lounge and relax and enjoys to stretch and do puppy yoga. Sometimes he’ll combine them by wrestling or playing tug but only if he can lie down on his back during it. My dog often drags Carter around the floor with a toy during extra-lazy Carter tug.

His favorite activity is snuggling on a pile of humans or dogs and receiving belly rubs. He is such a cuddle bug. Carter also loves to snuggle with blankets and be wrapped up in them. He will drag his blankets around with him to the best napping spot and rearrange them just right before settling in.

He talks like a Schnauzer when I tell him to quite down if he is barking at something out the window, but he will quite down. He has learned to stay off the furniture. He has learned to wait at the door to wipe his feet before going inside. He has learned to wait for an release command before leaving the front door. He is perfectly housetrained and will wait by the door if he has to go potty. He takes treats gently out of your hands. He loves all toys and even can entertain himself if you don’t have time to play with him.

Our sunshine is ready to put a smile on your face. He is eager to find his very own happy ending and he deserves one after living life of a neglected street dog. Humans may have failed him in his first years of life but he promises he won’t ever fail you.

**This dog is with Corridor Rescue in Houston, Texas but is available for transport to most major US and Canadian cities via United Airlines PetSafe for an additional $275. A customs fee may apply at Canadian airports. Ground transportation to Colorado is available for $75, and several locations in the northeastern US for $175.

We are a street dog rescue in Houston, Texas seeking to place rescued dogs in loving homes across the US and Canada. Our region has more homeless animals than homes, so we look outside of our area for adopters.

The adoption fee of $200 covers neuter, microchip and current vaccines.

About Corridor Rescue, Inc. - Portland Transport

About Our Rescue Group...

Corridor Rescue Inc. is an all-breed 501(c)(3) non-profit street dog rescue on a mission of mercy, rescue and awareness -- a mission to save lives and correct an injustice to animals who have been thrown away and left to fend for themselves in an area in Houston dubbed the "Corridor of Cruelty." Here, trash and animals are discarded without thought on a regular basis. We're not talking about a handful of animals, but hundreds of animals fighting to simply survive another day.

Founded by one person, Corridor Rescue has grown its team of volunteers, from all walks of life, united in an effort to help this community of orphaned animals in desperate need of help. We work to rescue hard to capture dogs and cats, to rescue and rehabilitate diseased and injured dogs, to facilitate the rescue of animals mainly from the Corridor of Cruelty but also from other areas of Houston, and to educate about spay/neuter and animal cruelty laws.

Success happens on the streets every day, yet we know that our fight is far from over.
