Peggy Sue's Story...
Howdy,

I was rescued along with my siblings and mother from the dangerous streets of Houston’s 5th Ward back in September 2012. My sisters and I were then taken to a shelter to be placed for adoption; all my siblings got adopted, except me. This made me really sad, I missed my sisters, but most of all I want a home of my own. The stress of the shelter environment got to me and I started to lick my leg raw. I was then removed from the shelter and came to live with my Foster Mom. Life has been good to me, you should hear the horrors that my mommy went through while living on the streets; oh I forgot my mommy is also fostered by the same lady. So, I am pretty happy right now, my Foster Mom and my mommy take good care of me, but there are many of us in this house and I’d really like more one-on-one attention. I need to move.

I would love to have a house with a backyard where I can run or go on long walks. I love to cuddle and I get along with other dogs and cats. I have played with humans of all ages, and they always say that I am pretty cool. I am tall and slender, like a super model! I am about 10 months old (5/2013), 38 lbs,spayed, current on all shots, and HW negative. I am very playful and super sweet. My foster mom says I am "high energy" and need daily exercise and lots of room to run. I am very smart, but most of all I am super sweet.

I live in Houston but we can arrange travel to anywhere in the country. My adoption fee is $125 plus transportation costs if required, I can either go by land or air, it just depends how quickly you want to have me in yours arms! Please fill out an application on me (http://forgottendogs.org) or get in touch with my foster mom, Lyda, at 713-416-2118 for details.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Peggy Sue, a Houston Border Collie/Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie/Labrador Retriever for sale in Houston, or seeking a Border Collie/Labrador Retriever 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 Border Collie/Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Border Collie/Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
