My story

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.


Hi, my name is Sassy. I was abandoned as a puppy, and I’m still looking for my forever home. I have a fear of being left alone, so you could say I’m a Velcro dog.  I'm sweet, sensitive, curious, and lovable. I have an incredible sense of smell, so I could be part hound.. I'm a smart girl, who knows basic obedience. I’m also a little stubborn. I love having canine brothers and sisters to play with.  Right now, I have two sisters and two brothers. I’m the second biggest in the family. We have a blast running, wrestling, and chasing each other. At night, I like t cuddle beside my sisters and my foster mom. I've never had any human brothers or sisters, but I'm sure I'd like them as long as they are older and know the proper way to play with me. I don’t like my tail or ears pulled, I don’t like to be restrained or picked up. I don’t like being hugged, but I like giving hugs. Please do not to leave your trash, coffee cups, wine glasses or food wrappers where I can reach them. If you're looking for a special girl, who will love you unconditionally and will fit right in with your other doggies, I just might be that girl. Don't forget to check out all of my gorgeous photos and my amazing videos.


Please contact  for more information about this dog. You can apply online by clicking on Application 

Puppies  that are under 4 months old cannot be adopted outside of our Veterinary Service area.  Please call for specific locations.

Children under 8 years old  often are not a good match for our puppies and dogs.   In order to protect both, your child and our rescued dogs/puppies from harm, we seldom if ever adopt to families with young children.

Once your application is approved, we will schedule a meet and greet at one of our adoption events.  Thank you for considering a rescue!

The adoption fee includes vaccinations, Bordetella, de-worming, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip. There is a an additional $12.99 fee for Home Again for a lifetime registration of the microchip.

Puppies cannot be adopted outside of the Houston area until they are spay/neutered after they are 4 months old.

It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.

NOTE: In our bios, we provide information based on our volunteer's experience with a particular dog; such as temperament, training, and ability to get along with others.

AARF is a 501(c)3 Non Profit, all breed, no kill organization. Our group is always in need of donations in order to continue to give the needed medical care to our rescues. Adoption fees do not begin to cover all of the medical costs. Any donation , no matter how small is a big help and is greatly appreciated. Please help us to continue to help them. Thank you.
