Hi my name is Bart! I am a Min Pin mix (they think) with the most amazing ears that you will ever see. Sometime I stand them straight up in the air! Most of the time the right one is floppy and the left one stands up. I think it’s a charming look. I have beautiful golden eyes (rare for a little dog), a soft copper colored coat and a boyish disposition. I’m young… they think I was born around June 2012. I'm a little guy, I weigh only about 10 lbs.
I was a stray out on the streets with my tiny Dachshund friend, Lisa one day. We were eating old yucky food in the middle of the street. Some nice people saw us and brought us some yummy sausage to eat instead and we were so desperate that our hunger outweighed our fear of strangers. BAM! Before we knew it we were grabbed up and rescued. We were brought to a foster home while we waited for our forever families to adopt us. Little Lisa found her forever family, but I’m still waiting for mine.
When I got to my foster house I was scared of a lot of things. It took me almost a week to be confident enough to walk in the door from outside on my own four feet. Now I’m doing it without even thinking. I love to be loved and even though at first I was afraid of the human hands now I seek them out to touch me. My foster mom said that I’m one of the smartest dogs she’s fostered… she calls me “smart as a whip”. I learned a lot of commands… sit, stay, come and down… in just a few days. I am crate trained, although my foster mom doesn’t crate me anymore because I’m such a good boy in the house even when the family is gone at work.
In my forever home I need a kind, gentle family and a small dog brother or sister (or two!) who will play like crazy with me. I would like people who will never holler at me or use rough hands on me. And I would love it if my new family will take me to the dog park and play fetch with me often. I love to play and run around so, so fast (see my video!)! Not only am I energetic but I also know how to relax. I’m NOT a hyperactive dog who can’t settle down. One of my favorite things to do here is snuggle on the couch with all of those other warm furry dogs and my foster humans under a cozy blanket. Sometimes I lay in foster mom’s arms like a furry baby.
I will be treated for heartworms in the summer (of 2013) but that won’t stop you from adopting me now if you are the right home for me and I’m the right dog for you. AAT will pay for my treatment at their vet in Richardson and all you would have to do is keep me quiet in the crate for a month after my treatment and give me some medicine which AAT will pay for. Heartworms are not contagious, so your pets cannot catch it from me (and humans don't get it). Pets can only get it from a mosquito that is carrying Heartworms if they are unprotected by a preventative.
If you are interested in adopting a sweet, young, cuddly, dog park loving, ball fetching, funny boy like me please fill out an application at http://www.animalalliesoftexas.org/adoption-application/ today for me, BART! Thanks!

Rescue Group Info...
Animal Allies of Texas is a 501(c)(3) animal advocacy/rescue organization, dedicated to improving the quality of life in our community. Our goal is to build a no-kill shelter on enough land to house not only "adoptable" animals, but "treatable" ones as well - those who need medical care or behavior modification to become adoptable. While working toward this goal, we will also engage in community service and humane education projects to help bring about "humanity championed by thought."
We hold adoption events at one or more locations every week end. Please check the calendar on our web site www.animalalliesoftexas.org for specific locations and times.
All potential adopters must submit an application, either online via our web site www.animalalliesoftexas.org or a paper application at an adoption event. General requirements for adoption: You must live in the DFW/Ft. Worth/North Texas area - we do not adopt outside this area. Dogs must be primarily inside, and cats must be totally inside. Cats must not be declawed. All pets must be spayed/neutered if this has not been done prior to adoption. Adopter must agree to a home visit prior to adoption. Adopter MUST agree to return pet to AAT if he/she can no longer keep the pet or if AAT deems it to be in the best interest of the pet. An adoption agreement detailing these and other requirements must be signed to finalize adoption. Current fees are: dogs-$175, cats-$110. This covers all vaccinations, spay/neuter and microchipping.
Animal Allies of Texas serves all cities and towns within the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex (North Texas area). We restrict adoptions to these areas so that we can do home visits to ensure the best placement for all our animals.
