TUCKER's Story...
"Tucker" looks like a cross between a Yorkie, a schnauzer and a wild hare. He has a Yorkei's
golden yellow coloring, a schnauzer's wirey coat and bunny rabbit ears that, thankfully, were not cropped. He was recently groomed and, then, dumped out of a car with a very pregnant doxi, last Thursday night on a quiet street in Bellaire. A neighbor's security camera recorded the "crime scene" but, unfortunately, not the license plate. Another kindly neighbor took in the two frightened pups for the night and called True Blue Friends the next morning. She dropped both of them off at the West U Vet for us and when we went to pick them up, hours later, we learned "Tucker's" traveling companion, "Madonna" was about to give birth. She did, one day later, to seven puppies!!! Tucker has gallantly wanted to be near her, to protect her, but she does not want Tucker or any other dog around her babies, all of whom are black and none look like Tucker So, Tucker has been spending his time, playing with all the small rescue dogs and is a delight!
Despite his abandonment, he holds no grudges and is grateful just to be surrounded by his new fur friends. He's the size of a mini schnauzer, close to 20 pounds, and very exuberant about life. He would be great with children of all ages. If you would like to meet this handsome boy with ears that catch everyone's attention and make them smile, come by this Tuesday's Rice University Farmer's Market, from 4-7pm. To arrange a meeting with Tucker, contact Janice Blue at 713.592.2299 or:

Why Adoption is a Great Option

TUCKER, a Houston Schnauzer (Miniature)/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Schnauzer (Miniature)/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier for sale in Houston, or seeking a Schnauzer (Miniature)/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier 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 Schnauzer (Miniature)/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier breeders who help with Schnauzer (Miniature)/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
