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 a Lab/Retriever mix girl. I am 5-years old and I weigh 61 pounds. I've had a tough life so far and probably look a little older than I am. 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 also say that I am microchipped – whatever THAT is.
My story is sort of sad and my foster mom doesn't like to talk about it too much. I was used as a "hog" dog here in Texas. I have a few scars on my chest to prove it. One day, I got lost in the woods and the men who had taken me there didn't look for me and I was starving when I finally made my way to a country road and I was SAVED! Boy-oh-Boy! That was close! Whew! I know I will be fed and taken care of being with YOU! Everyone says that I am very deserving. That's another new word for me! I hope it's something good!
Through no fault of my own, I will do best in a one doggie home. I think I finally deserve to be the One and Only. Wouldn't you agree? I am ready to be your best bud - - just you and me, OK? If there are other peeps around, that's fine. I LOVE to be at home with my peeps! I need you. Do you need me?
I only have one bad habit - - I like to chase cattle! So, if you don't have any cows, I'm your gal. You know? Here in Texas, there are a lot of cows. So, I need to say, "Bye, bye, Texas!"
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.)
