Midnite's Story...
WARNING: You might want to get comfortable, my story is kind of long but it sure is worth hearing. Have you ever seen one of those movies where the main character is innocent and on death row, and right before the stroke of midnight they are granted clemency? That was me. I was an owner surrender to a shelter due to a bum leg, that was supposedly caused by a horse kick. Lucky for me NASPR pulled me just as I was schedule to be “checked” out …on a permanent basis if you know what I mean. Whew that was close!
But my troubles weren’t over…some nice people took me to a vet right away to have an x-ray and get me some pain relief. Not good news at all…my leg was badly broken and would need extensive surgery. NASPR couldn’t afford treatment there so they transported me to a rescue vet in Houston in hopes something could be done. Again it seemed as if it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all.
Unfortunately the break was old (over a month) and even with a generous discount for rescue the amount was going to be beyond NASPR’s capability. I was beginning to think that it was almost midnight again … but those NASPR people just don’t give up. Somehow they managed to find a guardian angel and donations to save me. So here I am!
My foster mom calls me PEG-GY because of my leg. I don’t mind and I know she is saying it with love so I like being called Peggy. She keeps telling me that once the surgery has healed and they remove the pin my leg won’t hurt anymore and I will be able to use all 4 legs again.
Don’t you worry though, I get around great. I am very careful to have good house manners and get along with the other dogs so she knows how much I appreciate her and all that has been done for me. I am only a year old and I really like these NASPR people but I need to move on and make room for some other poor dog that needs my spot.
At 35 lbs,. I don’t take up much space. I am very calm and I get along with people of all sizes. If I become a part of your family, it will give another dog a chance to beat the “stroke of midnight”.

NOTE: Cases like Midnite’s are what make your donation so important. If now isn’t the right time for you to add a member to your family PLEASE at least consider donating. Any amount (no matter how large or small) contributes to NASPR being able to save these dogs.

**Midnite is currently being fostered in Houston.**

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Midnite, a Houston Shar Pei dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shar Pei for sale in Houston, or seeking a Shar Pei dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Houston breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shar Pei breeders who help with Shar Pei rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
