My story

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

Please contact Tonya Griffith ( for more information about this pet.

Posted on 7/21/21, and pictures were taken on 6/26/21.  Reya was a stray surrender from Hawkins, TX on 6/1/21.  She was good around all of our yard dogs for about 1.5 days.  She is dog selective, and unpredictable around both male and female dogs, but I have her in a dog pen with a male and a female that she gets along with, so I'm not sure what triggers her with certain dogs.  She loves people, has a lot of energy, still jumps on me for attention, and is crate trained.  She is very strong, and pulls on a leash, so would do better with a harness.  Due to her energy level, she would not be good around smaller children.  She would do best as the only dog, or with another dog she is compatible with, and will need a secure fenced yard to make sure she doesn't wander.  She doesn't like medicine given to her orally, but it can be put in can food when needed.  She is heartworm positive, and I have started her on a slow kill treatment with prevention.  She should be negative in a few month.  I'm not sure what breed she is without doing a DNA test, so I'm just listing her as a Terrier mix, since that covers a large number of breeds.

Adoption application

Go meet their pets

It depends on who has the pet. We don't advertise our address to keep people from dumping animals on our road anymore than they usually do, especially since this is also where we live. I like to visit with a person on the phone first before letting them come meet the pet.

More about this rescue

This is a small animal rescue for cats and dogs. I have several foster homes in various areas, and I also do courtesy postings for people who need help finding a home for their pet, which is about 80% successful. The pet doesn't have to enter a rescue or shelter and the owner is contacted, so they decide who their pet goes to. If a person can't send me pictures, and they don't live too far away, I will go and videotape the pet myself to place pictures on the internet, or have a volunteer get the pictures. There have been a few pets that haven't been able to find a home through this service, but it depends on what the pet is and who is looking on the internet. When we have space available we take transfers from a local kill animal shelter. We also step in and help people who find themselves with multiple animals and no way to pay to get them fixed. Usually I will get all the females fixed to get their circumstances under control, and in some cases I will also help with donated food when I have extra. If they want to find homes for some of the many pets they have accumulated, then I will place their pictures on the internet for them. We don't euthanize unless a pet is seriously ill.
