Marcus's Story...
Marcus is a beautiful 2 yr old male who recently came into rescue after his owner could no longer keep him. A very sweet boy, Marcus is a big love at 58 lbs! He has a very, very soft short fawn coat and is in good health. Already neutered, up to date on all shots, and heartworm negative, he is ready for a home!! Marcus currently lives with a smaller female Sharpei who is his good buddy! They run together in the backyard and Marcus likes playing with her during the cool mornings. He is calm when inside, housebroken and likes to chew on bones and play with toys. Marcus would love to have a new permanent home and has a lot of love to share!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Marcus, 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.
