My story

Duke wandered up to a Texaco truck stop terminal in downtown Houston. He had a significant bite wound on the left side and the top of his neck. It looked like perhaps a big dog had grabbed him. He was not wearing a collar and ID tag and he did not have a microchip. Duke came to Emmy's Hope Rescue in June 2020.

Duke is a sweet, happy-go-lucky and affectionate little dog with people, but he is hesitant and untrusting of dogs he doesn’t know. He prefers small, female dogs and tends to get defensive with males, particularly if they are big. After he warms up, and feels comfortable, he's ready to run and play. Duke is very curious and has a high energy level.  He will do best with an active family that’s experienced with energetic dogs.                                                                                                                       

Estimated birth date:  June 2019

Approximate weight:  11 lbs.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

1. Application An adoption application is required, providing information about your family, as well as past and current pets. 2. Vet check You give us permission to contact your veterinarian regarding current and/or past pets. You must have a good vet history, showing that you are a responsible pet owner. 3. Home visit A home visit will be scheduled. • To adopt a dog, you must have a fenced area. We will check it to make sure there are no escape routes. We will not leave a dog with you unless problem areas are fixed. • To adopt a cat, the home environment must be safe for the cat. There needs to be a place where the cat can be isolated for several days until the new cat & current pets can get used to each other. 4. Trial run There will be a minimum of a one week trial at your home, to make sure that the pet you have chosen is a good match with your family. If the pet does not work out, for whatever reason, we will take the pet back. 5. Adoption finalization When we all agree that the pet is a good match with your family, the adoption can be finalized. An adoption contract is signed. You must promise to be a responsible and loving pet owner for the entire life of your new pet. 6. Adoption fees • Dogs - $150 • Cats - $100 This fee helps defray the cost of vetting but by no means covers all the money already spent on your new pet. All rescues are completely vetted: all shots up-to-date, spayed/neutered and parasite free. (Dogs) are micro-chipped, heartworm negative and currently taking a heart worm preventative. (Cats) are tested and negative for FIV and FELV. Other health issues may also have been treated and you will get a history of anything that’s been done.
