Scrappy's Story...
Scrappy is a sweet little guy who is literally starving for affection! Scrappy was found abandoned in a neighborhood in Northwest Houston. Right now, he is somewhat timid and frightened, however; he is gaining confidence in his new life circumstances and learning to develop the skills he needs to be the dog you are looking for.
Scrappy is working on becoming house and crate trained, both of which are new to him. He is learning quickly, and is getting used to wearing a collar and walking on a leash. These are giant steps for this diminutive dog, and the attention he receives from his successes keep him motivated.
Scrappy is a dog that is friendly and eager to please, yet shy, cautious and timid. He is obedient, adaptable and very trainable. Already, Scrappy has learned the commands stay, down/off, and come. Scrappy is fine going to strange places, but can sometimes be leery of strange places. He has not met any strangers or men so far in his foster home, but is likely to enjoy their company after becoming introduced. Scrappy may sometimes bark or howl as he makes his way toward total confidence, but it should subside as he develops confidence and trust.
Scrappy is going to be a wonderful dog willing to give you all of the love and companionship you could ever hope for! Scrappy has been through much in his short life, and is now ready to trust you to be his forever friend. In return, he will give you more than you would think possible.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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