My story

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

MawMaw came to us from a horrific hoarding situation. She had lived on a chain her entire life, with little room to move around. She had many litters of puppies. Mawmaw is a sweet girl who loves people, but she is very dog aggressive. She is still quite active for a senior of 10 yrs. MawMaw isn't a large shepherd, weighing in at 56 lbs. We would love to find MawMaw that perfect retirement home, where she can go outside and run about ( will require a securely fenced yard), lay on a cushy bed, catch a few movies on the tv and get her belly rubbed. Since she is dog aggressive, she will have to be an only dog. She has been spayed, is UTD on vaccines, Microchipped, the only negative here is she is HW Positive. She has been started on Pro Heart shots to help get rid of the heartworms, she is not symptomatic. If you would like to give this girl a retirement home she so deserves and the love and attention she has never had, please submit an application at

More about this rescue

We are dedicated to save dogs of all ages and breeds by rescuing, rehabilitating and placement into loving forever homes. Pups In Peril is a no kill, volunteer rescue organization serving the Golden Triangle Area of Southeast Texas. It is our mission to rescue dogs left homeless and in danger for whatever reason.
We place dogs in responsible, loving, committed forever homes, following an in depth adoption process which includes finding the best match possible for our rescues as well as educating potential adopters about the responsibilities and costs associated with dog ownership.
Dogs in our rescue receive any veterinary care necessary as well as all vaccinations recommended. All rescues will be spayed or neutered. All rescues are placed in loving foster homes until adoption. We assist dogs of all ages or breeds regardless of ease of placement.
Since we are strictly a volunteer, foster based rescue and depend highly on donations received from the general public, as well as available foster homes, we simply can not take in an unlimited number of dogs in need, dogs with the greatest need will be our first priority.
Pups In Peril remains interested and committed to the dog well beyond the adoption process.
