Hi, my name is Mya! My foster mom said she saw me on something called the “urgent” list put out by some volunteers at the shelter that I was dropped off at by my previous owners. She said she saw my eyes and knew she had to save me. She said it was really close, but the awesome people at AAT stepped in and that is how I am alive today. My foster mom said that I am one of the best decisions she has ever made because she knows that I am going to make an amazing addition to someone’s family. I am not too big and not too small, I am just right at about 60 lbs. I am healthy, I walk on a leash perfectly, I LOVE to go on car rides, I love to give and get attention (and I will even let you use me as a pillow), I gently take treats (like the lady I am). My foster mom also tells people I have good doggy manners and that I know sit, stay, come, down, off, shake and roll over. My foster mom tells me that I am simply adorable and that I am such a lady. I do have two foster sisters (my foster mom calls us The Pretty Pittie Committee) and we all get along and snuggle and play. I like it here with my foster family, but I would really LOVE to find my forever family.

Mya’s foster mom here…Mya will absolutely make an amazing addition to someone’s home and I continue to tell her that. Mya will do best with an owner that is confident, assertive, calm and experienced with dogs (especially if you plan on bringing her into a home with other pets). She was owner-surrendered along with two other dogs at a shelter. My understanding is that she was in a loving home and it appears that she was well taken care of and loved. She is smart, obeys commands well, is crate-trained, housebroken and she is by far the best of my pack on a leash. She LOVES the car and makes an excellent co-pilot. Mya has adapted well to her two foster sisters and they like to play chase in the yard, take naps together and compete for lap space and kisses. I do not know how she is with cats, as I do not have any, but she has thus far been non-reactive to them when we have been out and about. Mya has been good around kids of all ages in our outings and I believe she could do great in a home with kids that can play with her and give her lots of love and affection. Mya has infinite potential: travel companion for road trips; walking/jogging partner; burglar alarm; pillow; loving and loyal forever companion.

Mya is a doll and I knew from the moment I saw her that she was special and someone reading this will recognize it as well.

If you think Mya could be your FUR-EVER dog, please fill out an adoption application today at . Mya is waiting!

About Animal Allies of Texas

About Our Rescue Group...

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."

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold adoption events at one or more locations every week end. Please check the calendar on our web site for specific locations and times.

Our Adoption Process...

All potential adopters must submit an application, either online via our web site 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: puppies (under 6 months)-$200, dogs-$175; kittens (under 6 months)-$125, cats-$110. This covers all vaccinations, spay/neuter and microchipping.
