Petey's Story...
Petey was rescued from being chased by a pack of dogs in an area of Houston known as being an animal dumping location. Whew! That was a close one!

One smart puppy! – Petey is learning house and crate training, and doing a great job! He is used to a collar and leash. He got the hang of using his crate and the dog door in no time at all!

The skinny – Petey likes just about everything and everybody, except for loud noises and thunderstorms—scary! He is grateful for any attention and working to boost his self-esteem.

Eager! – Petey wants to please you and kiss you! He will squeal and nudge you for attention in the sweetest way.

Petey has overcome a major obstacle by surviving. His love of people and desire to bond with humans will enable Petey to be a wonderful companion dog. His intelligence will allow him to quickly learn what pleases you. Petey is young, and ready to spend the rest of his life with someone just like you!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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