My story

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

I am just an adorable Daddy's girl. older children only.

Hi!  I am Kia!  I am a Daddy's girl.   Mom's ok, but say the word 'Daddy' and I fly to find him!

I am the best hugger!  I can twist my body into a pretzel so I can get as close as possible to you. 

I have been vaccinated, spayed, micro chipped and have had my rabies shot so I won't get sick.    I don't potty in the house, but we have a doggie door where I can go out when I need to.   I DO NOT CRATE!  As hard as mom tries,  I hate being crated and will hurt myself.    I usually spend time in the Dining room with my friends when Mom needs me to be secure.    I love sleeping with Dad at night.   I think it is my job to protect him while he sleeps. 

I am looking for a forever home where I have at least one other fur friend so I am not lonely.   I love to run around the back yard chasing all the other kids so it would be great if when you adopt me, you have another small friend for me.   

I don't know much about kids, but I think I would like an older boy or girl to call my own.   Mom says - NO WAY  CAN I BE ADOPTED by a small child.   She would have to say NO WAY!  

If you think I am as special as my foster mom says I am, please fill out an application.

=========================================================

Please contact  app@aarfhouston.org 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.
