Hey! Before you get attached to me, read all the way to the bottom. You will see that I am still in Houston, TX but I want to get OUT of Houston and OUT of Texas so I can have a really good life. I want to see Texas in my rear view mirror. A nice person came along and took me in and, now, I am ready to hit the road to your house! Uh, make that “our” house, OK? As soon as you adopt me, I’ll be on my way to you! I am very excited to find my forever home.

I am an Akita/White Shepherd mix girl. Yes, it's true! I've had a DNA test!!! I am 2.5-years old and I weigh 65 pounds. I have had all of my shots and have been spayed and I'm ready to go to my new home with YOU! Those funny-looking 2-legged creatures aslo say that I am microchipped – whatever THAT is.

Wanna hear more good stuff about me? OK, here goes. My foster parents tell everyone that I am a sweet and lovely girl and show no aggression at all toward humans. I love my humans! I am a lovely dog on my own, they say.


Guess what else? I am affectionate and know basic commands. I am house-trained and crate-trained and have been very well cared for. You can tell by looking at my pretty hair! Also, I walk rather well on a leash and my chewing and digging stages are OVER!!! So, don't worry about that!


I must be the alpha dog of my dog pack, except for my peeps, of course!

My foster mom loves me SO much that she only wants me to fly to my new home even if a pet transport truck was available. See my adoption information below.

If you would like to take me home (and you know you do), please email mpringle001@comcast.net and she can get me on my way to a new and loving home! My adoption fee is $650 USD and includes my vetting, spaying, microchip, health certificate, travel crate AND transportation on United Airlines from Houston, TX to areas in the Northeast U. S., North Central U. S., Northwest U. S., and Canada and will be arranged by the rescue group. (This is a courtesy posting.)

About Our Rescue Group...

We rescue dogs from the streets of Houston, TX, vet them, recuperate them from health problems, bring them to full health and then work very hard to get them adopted out-of-state. Houston, TX has over ONE MILLION stray dogs. Thousands of perfectly healthy dogs, along with sick and dying dogs that are picked up, are euthanized every single day. Houston, TX is saturated with dogs. Everyone who WANTS a dog HAS a dog. We can only save lives by getting dogs out of our region. We have found the very best adopters in the Northeast and Northwest U. S. and Canada.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fee is $650 or $700 (depending on size) for a dog being transported via United Airlines (includes previous vetting, microchip, spay/neuter, travel health certificate, travel crate and air transport.


Our adoption process consists, first, of filling out an application with photos of inside of home and outside yard. We then check out the application. Then, we notify the person or family as to whether or not they have been approved for a particular dog. We then arrange a flight to send the dog to its new home.
