Facts about Holly

  • Breed: Westie, West Highland White Terrier/Maltese Mix
  • Color: White - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Holly is a 6 lb. bundle of fur and cuteness who found dumped in a parking lot. She was likely dumped because she has a condition called megaesophagus. It causes her to regurgitate her food unless fed in an upright position. So, she needs a family who can spend a little extra time helping her eat and will be patient if she cannot keep it down. Despite this minor flaw, Holly has the happiest personality and loves to play with kids, dogs, cats and even likes the guinea pig in her foster home!

Holly is estimated to be 7 months old and is thought to be part Maltese and possibly Westie. She has an appointment to be spayed soon and then will be ready to officially be adopted. She is a total joy to have! Loves to give kisses and snuggle in your lap! Are you looking for a sweet girl like Holly? If so, please fill out an adoption application on our website at forgottendogs.org/adopt/application - Thank you!!

About Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project

About Our Rescue Group...

We rescue in an historical area of Houston called the 5th Ward. We founded Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project November of 2011 to address what we saw as an obvious need to help the many stray, abandoned, and neglected dogs we were seeing in there. We set up feeding stations and network and pull as many as we can when a foster home or no-kill rescue group says they can take them in. One of our goals is education and we provide residents with access to free spay/neuter and rabies vaccinations. In addition, we provide other vaccinations and worming in the field to strays that we can not immediately pick up. Since November 2011 we have grown in size and have rescued over 1,000 dogs, and a few cats, from the area. We are launching a program called Habitat for Hounds through which we will donate doghouses and blankets to residents for their dogs that are kept outside. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, so all donations are tax-deductible.

Our Adoption Process...

You can find our adoption application online at http://forgottendogs.org/adopt/application/. Our adoption fees are $150 for adult dogs ages 2 and older and $175 for puppies up to 2 years old (plus an additional spay/neuter deposit on those that are too young at the time of adoption: $75 local, or $250 for long-distance adoptions). Long distance adoption transportation costs vary based on size/weight/breed of the individual dog being adopted. We have an adoption application and contract. All animals are spayed/neutered prior to adoption, if old enough, or, for young puppies, arrangements are made to have them spayed/neutered afterwards.
