My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

She is the perfect dog, almost.

Violet is a sweet girl who is eager to please and excited to learn and experience new things. Every person who has met her has fallen in love with her. She has a wonderful personality and a heartwarming smile.

She has been attending group classes and has been doing well being handled by other confident people.

Violet warms more quickly to women and she needs someone who will take the time to build a trusting relationship and help her continue to build confidence, but once that is established, she will be your best friend. She is a little unsure of men but is learning to be more trusting and is warming much more quickly these days.

Violet is always ready to go and do but is also content to lay and be calm, especially if she has something to chew on. She has made good decisions, so far, on appropriate items for chewing. She is an aggressive chewer so you should be mindful of this when providing her with things to chew on.

Violet has been getting out in the community more and walks beautifully on leash with the occasional reminder when there is a distraction.

Violet is potty trained, and crate trained.

We believe that, at this time, Violet would do best in an active home as an only animal and without children.

She has come a long way and we have no doubt that she will continue to shine with guidance.

More about this rescue

HART’s board is comprised of Houston-area people who have long been active in dog rescue, and who want to make a difference in outcomes for stray dogs and those surrendered to local shelters. We are a kennel-based system built on a beautiful property in Tomball, Texas.

Rescued dogs are fully vetted and, when ready, adopted out on-site at the facility, or through meetings with fosters. HART also coordinates with shelters in the northern U.S. to find homes for dogs that aren’t adopted locally. Additionally, HART provides information, education and community advocacy to improve animal welfare, via adoption and fundraising events, visits to schools, and through social media. We are working with a dedicated group of volunteers to reaffirm that Houston has a terrific HART.
