I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Meet Big Boy, also known as Brown-eyed Boy. He is a brown-eyed boxer mix who is needs to be the only animal in the home (no dogs or cats, please!). He enjoys being sung to by his foster mom. When his rescuer found him, he had been starved by the adults that should've been taking care of him and abused by young boys. Now he is healthy, current on vaccinations and has been neutered. His ideal home would be adult-only (no kids), either with a single woman or a kind, patient couple who can help to ease some of his lingering trust issues and provide him with some trust-building training and therapy. If you, or someone you know, are interested in Big Boy, please contact Nadia at email@example.com Thanks!

Rescue Group Info...
We rescue in a low income area of Houston called the 5th Ward. We founded Forgotten Dogs of the 5th Ward Project November of 2011 to address what we saw as an obvious need to help the many stray dogs we were seeing in there. We set up feeding stations and network and pull as many as we can when a foster home or no-kill rescue group says they can take them in. One of our goals is education and we provide residents with vouchers that cover the complete cost of having their animals altered and vaccinated against rabies. In addition, we provide other vaccinations and worming in the field free of charge. Since November 2011 we have grown in size and have rescued over 300 dogs and a few cats from the area. We are launching a program called Habitat for Hounds through which we will donate doghouses and blankets to residents for their dogs that are kept outside. Our website is forgottendogs.org and we are a 501c3.
We do not have a regular adoption site at this time, but stay tuned to our facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/ForgottenDogs5) for our upcoming events!
Our adoption fee is $125. We have an online application and a contract and all dogs/puppies are either spayed/neutered prior to adoption if old enough or arrangements are made to have them spayed/neutered afterwards.
