My story

Hi all! My name is Texas and I am a chunky low rider! I am a really smart girl and even though I am 7 yrs old I still have alot of energy! I do like taking naps in the home I am pretty chill. I like to play with toys and keep myself amused. I am super sweet and do get along with most dogs. But I do not need to be in a home with cats or chickens since I have that prey drive thing going on! I am houestrained, I know sit, stay and wait. I love going on walks. And I love to give kisses! I need a fenced yard where I can run and I need a strong leader! I tend to want to be the alpha dog and would do best in a home with no young children. I do bark so apartments are not going to work for me. Make sure to watch my cute video!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Once the adoption application is received, a home visit will be set up. If that goes well and is approved, then a vet check is completed (if the applicant has recently owned an animal, if not, two professional references will be required). Once both of those are approved, then the adoption fee will need to be paid.

More about this rescue

We are dedicated to improving the lives of abused, abandoned, and homeless animals by aiding in their journey to a better life. RescueConnect also encourages and educates individuals to keep their animals up to date on vaccinations, on heartworm preventative (for canines) and encourages spaying/neutering. For more exotic pets, we will complete the research necessary to provide literature and guidance on proper care or connect guardians with experts.
