Howie's Story...
Meet Howie - Howie was hanging out and running around the parking lot at the Gulfgate HEB in Houston in April 2013. He seemed to be looking for a friendly face. Everyone was afraid of him and steered clear but a Barrio Dogs’ volunteer couldn't help but walk up to him and give him a pat on the head and tell him he was a good boy. He did not have a collar, was infested with fleas and had a bad eye infection and a few scars.
After the volunteer finished her shopping, Howie was still out there. She offered him a dog treat and he immediately sat for it. He followed her to her car and as soon as she opened the door, he jumped in and took a seat, ready to go. We think Howie was probably dumped at the HEB by his former owner.
Howie has been fully vetted and is scheduled to be spayed. He weighs 70 pounds and is heartworm negative. He loves attention and plays well with our volunteer’s female pit. Our volunteer who rescued him named him Howie E. Basket in honor of the HEB where he was found. For more information about Howie, contact us info@barriodogs.org

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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