I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Bella is a gorgeous 8 month old mix. She has the bulldog underbite, similar characteristics to a Boston terrier or French Bulldog, and is a solid medium size of around 35-40 lbs. She's super sweet with people, kids, and other dogs. Her foster mom also says she's extremely smart and is picking up basic obedience, crate training, and house training like a champ! She's medium energy and would do well in a somewhat active household. Bella is being fostered in Houston TX and will be transported upon adoption. Her fee is $650 and includes all vetting and transport costs
Southern Dog is a Houston, Texas based rescue. We are a very small foster based rescue, so the dogs live in home at all times, not in a shelter. Every dog in our rescue either comes from a kill shelter in Houston or straight off the streets. Our goal is to save as many dogs as we can from the deplorable animal overpopulation in the south. Just Houston has over 1.2 million stray animals at all times, hundreds of thousands of dogs living on chains their whole lives, and over 100,000 dogs euthanized for space every year. Our goal is to get as many dogs as we can out of the south and into loving, forever homes in the northern states, while trying to educate about spay/neuter in Houston and enact animal welfare/breeding legislation.
Our Adoption Process...
1. Adoption application, including vet reference, must be filled out and on file 2. Phone interview if application is approved 3. Home check if applicable (case by case basis) 4. Adoption contract including a clause that the dog be returned to the rescue if at any point during his/her life if the adopter can no longer keep. Adoption fees are typically $700 for puppies $650 adults, but can increase or decrease on a case by case basis. Fees are for dogs being transported out of Texas, all costs for ground transport/vetting included in adoption fee (flying $100-150 extra). Adoption fees typically do not cover all vetting and care for the dog, however any and all residual goes to the care of the next dog taken into the rescue.
