Hi! My name is Fiona and I am a redheaded brindle Staffordshire terrier. I am about -3 years old and weigh in at 50 pounds.

I was rescued from a hoarder who had me crated 24/7 with a dog that bullied me and stole my dignity and sense of security for over a year.

When I arrived at my foster’s home, I was in horrible condition and in desperate need of love and attention. My years of being bullied made me scared of dogs and humans, so naturally, I am slow to trust. But my three women fosters have worked very hard and gradually gained my trust. Even when I was afraid of my foster moms, I was never aggressive.

Now I even run and play in the yard with my foster brothers and sisters! Men still kinda intimidate me, but I am beginning to trust the human hand to be gentle and the voice to be tender.

I am looking for a forever home of my own that is willing to see past my shyness and see the true love and gentleness in my soul. Is your heart big enough to accommodate a special girl like me?

I am spayed, housetrained, up to date on all vaccines, microchipped and heartworm negative.

To welcome me into your home, please e-mail for an application.

**An excellent vet reference is required.**


About Our Rescue Group...

Canine Compassion is a specialized rescue group of volunteers dedicated to the medical and behavioral needs of each dog we take in. Our members are located throughout the greater Houston, Texas area.

The dogs this group takes in are fostered in our homes. They are loved just like our own dogs because they are our dogs until we determine the best match for a dog’s unique personality, size, and energy level.

As soon as a dog is rescued by us, they are immediately seen by one of our vets. All medical needs are addressed ASAP. Every dog is altered (spayed or neutered), heartworm tested (treated if positive), and tested for parasites.

We put our dogs on heartworm preventative and flea preventative. Medical care is kept current for every dog. Our dogs are groomed on a regular basis, socialized with people, other dogs and tested for cat tolerance as well.

Come Meet Our Pets...

As a “Foster Only” rescue, we operate by keeping the fostered dogs in homes only. There is no location to “come view” our dogs. Arrangements are made for approved applicants to meet with the dog they have applied to adopt.

Our Adoption Process...

Please e-mail us at to ask us for an application for the specific dog you are interested in meeting and / or adopting.

Once an application is received, the vet's reference is checked. A home visit by one of our volunteers is also required.

The final step is the signing of the adoption contract. The adopters are required to make an appointment with their vet for a "meet and greet" just to establish the new dog with their own vet.

We will only place our dogs with the people who we determine to best match our dogs’ sizes, personalities, and energy levels.

Adoption fees vary depending on the amount of the veterinary care that was required to get the dog to an adoptable state.
