My story

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

Shephered/Boxer/Shar-Pei Beautiful, loving, sweet

This beautiful, intelligent girl is Merry.  Merry loves to go!  She loves to ride in the car and run on the beach.   She loves tennis balls and tug-a-war.    Merry and the rest of her siblings play a fun game of hide and seek or chase. She is very affectionate and loves to cuddle.

Merry will need a loving hand.   She is a loving, intelligent animal who needs a lot of stimulus.  

Merry will do well in a house with older children and at least 1 other dog. 

Merry is kennel trained - 4-5 hour stretches she sleeps through the night - averaging 6 -7 hours.  Merry has storm and noise anxiety and will destroy a crate in a storm or with fireworks.

Merry is house broken, although we use a doggy door so she has full access to house and yard.

Merry is a blood donor for Blue Pearl in Houston.

Please contact app@aarfhouston.org for more information about this dog or to schedule a meet and greet. You can apply online by clicking on Application . 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.
