Hi there! My name is Eliza Jane and I'm an AAT foster dog! My foster family has taught me so much since I was brought to them that cold, rainy night. I've learned about proper house manners, and crating to keep me out of trouble when they are away and how to walk on a lead. Foster mom says I excel at learning new things. I know house words like 'get down', 'kitchen', 'crate up', and 'sit'. I love car rides and playing with big dogs like me. My Vet says I'm a definitely a Heeler mix. Foster mom says I act like a Heeler, always rounding up my foster pack, but she says I've got some Bull Terrier in me, too. She calls me one of her Bully Girls - but she never calls me late for supper! I have to say - I'm always worried about my food. Been that way since I was a baby. Foster mom tells that story better than me - I'd rather go play. Or just snuggle up and cuddle with you on the sofa. Do you like naps? I really like naps. They are awesome!

From Eliza's AAT foster mom:
Eliza joined AAT in April of 2013, found by a good Samaritan. She was is pretty rough shape for a 2 month old puppy. From what we can tell, she must have been starved before being abandoned behind a vacant commercial building. She has always had issues with her food and she must be fed separately from other dogs.

Eliza has a strong Alpha personality. She is quick to lead the pack out to the backyard and to challenge even the largest dogs. That is balanced for her love of all people - young and old, boys and girls. She is quick to flop over for a tummy rub or an ear scratching. She enjoys water and will probably excel at water sports if her forever family has a pool. Eliza is ready for her forever - please fill out an AAT adoption application today at if your house is ready for this fair lady to join you.

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: dogs-$175, cats-$110. This covers all vaccinations, spay/neuter and microchipping.
