My story

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

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

If you're looking for a furry friend that's full of fun, smart and energetic then Gunnar is your boy! He and his litter mates were born just a week after their momma was rescued from scrounging in a train yard. Gunnar is so much fun! He loves running after his 6 pound foster sister and playing tug with his rope toy! He's so proud of himself when you ask 'where's tug?' and he runs to find it! He'll prance around with his head held high! This boy loves people! Once introductions are made he quickly wants to be your friend. Gunnar is such a lovable clown. Walks are a great adventure! He would be best in a home with another dog to bond and play with. Older respectful children would be a bonus! He would be a wonderful addition to your family!

With his soulful amber eyes and wrinkled forehead he will steal your heart!

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.
