Story
Brandy/Kira is a 4 year old boxer maybe bulldog mix. She weighs 66 lbs and loves to cuddle her people. She can be selective about her dog friends and tends to chase cats, so would require a meet with any animals in the home. She lived with a baby in her previous home but as always, people need to be observant with larger pups and kiddos. Her adoption fee is $250 - if interested in meeting her please apply at www.foreverhomedogs.org!All adoptions are $300 per dog for puppies under 1 year, $250 for adults 1 - 9 years old and $150 for senior dogs which include spay/neuter, micro-chipped and up-to-date on required shots. Senior dogs, at our discretion, are adopted out at $150 per dog because we know they will have less time with your family and may eventually have more needs as they get older. But we feel these dogs deserve to live out the rest of their lives as part of a loving family.

Story
Gracie Belle - Yes, having two names definitely makes me extra special! And believe me, I AM special! I'm not your average pup; I'm a delightful boxer mix with ears that act like radars, always tuned in to the fun and excitement around me. I've got a genuine penchant for adventure and a passion for running that knows no bounds. As I've grown, I've blossomed into a loving and mature young dog. My youthful exuberance is now complemented by a deeper sense of loyalty and affection. I've learned the ropes of good behavior, and I'm ready to be the devoted companion you've been looking for. I'm an active girl, and I thrive alongside other active, friendly dogs or I am good by myself to take all the attention from you :) With my sleek and muscular build, weighing in at about 50-55 pounds, I'm the perfect size for all kinds of outdoor activities. I'd make the ideal companion for a family that loves to keep moving! Do you enjoy running, hiking, camping, boating, or any adventure under the sun? Well, guess what? I'm ready to be your partner in all those exciting escapades. So why wait? Fill out that adoption application today, and let's embark on a lifetime of thrilling journeys together! Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $400 (includes transport to your area - $50 Temporary Fuel Charge will be added)

Story
Hi there, I'm Precious. They say that I am called this because I am the most precious dog here at God's Dogs Rescue. I came to the rescue in October of 2022 to have a safe place for me to have and raise my puppies. All my puppies were adopted by the end of January 2023, but I am still here looking for my furever home. I am a bigger girl, but this just means there is more of me to cuddle you, because I love cuddling it's one of my top 3 favorite things. 1) Food- I love food and will do almost anything you ask if you have a treat involved. 2) Cuddles- on your lap, on the couch, in the bed wherever there is a comfy space with pillows or a human I want to be there. 3) Kisses- I have a love of giving kisses to people, especially kids. Although not everyone likes it when I try to kiss them and that makes me sad. 4) Honorable mention- I like going on walks or in the car for a ride, although I prefer just lazing around at home. My current fosters say that I am a "house hippo with springs in my feet whatever that means; I just know sometimes, when I get super happy, I feel like I could fly- or jump really high. I love their kids and am very good with them even the tiny ones. I get along with most other dogs I meet, although I have a big personality about me, because I'm a boss, so sometimes other dogs don't like that about me. I tolerate cats although if they give me too much attitude or growl at me, I can't help but to give them piece of my mind. I like most new people I meet although I had a rough start in life so sometimes, I can be a little wary with men, with time though I adjust, and we can become best friends forever. A few more little details about me: I am almost 3 years old I am a Boxer/Shepherd mix I am great with kids I am good with Cats and Dogs I am crate-trained I am housebroken I can be adopted in Texas or anywhere in the US too! Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $400 (includes transport to your area, $50 temporary fuel fee will be included)

Meet Bruno, the big guy with the squishy lips! He is the most lovable goof! He is a boxer/mastiff mix and is about 2 years old and weighs 73 pounds. Bruno may be a big dog, but he is an absolute lover and not a fighter. He is all love when it comes to both humans and other dogs, he loves chasing balls and playing tug-o-war with his favorite k-9 companions. Bruno has a goofy personality that will surely make you laugh even on your worst day.Bruno knows some basic commands such as sit and stay. Bruno is on daily medication for seizures, but he’s only had 2 of them.

Spayed or Neutered,
Story
My name is Biscuit and I am a white & black american bulldog. I am a spayed female and I am 6 years and 4 months old. I am here because I was given up by my owner on 02/03/2024 due to the fact my owner`s landlord would not allow me to live there. They were my family for 1-3 months. I am used to staying inside during the day and inside during the night. I am potty trained. I am a medium energy dog and I will need an owner with some prior pet owning experience. I am used to staying in crates when I am alone or need to be safely contained. I would do well with simple obedience training to help us bond and for us to learn how to communicate with each other. I do not have a history of trying to escape the home or yard, but the shelter staff always recommends owners be mindful that I do not accidentally get out a door or escape the yard. I would like a standard height fence to help keep me inside the yard. I can be nervous around some men but do well with most, and I can be good with women. I have not been around children. I can be good with cats and I can be good with dogs. I get very attached to my owners. I`d like to be someone`s side-kick!All dogs are tested for heartworms and given flea preventatives. They are also tested for intestinal parasites and receive routine dewormings. Dogs are vaccinated against distemper, rabies, and bordetella, spayed/neutered before adoption, and have a microchip. Adoption fees include the initial automated registration of the microchip at the time of adoption.

Story
My name is Woofus and I am a brown brindle pit bull. I am a neutered male and I am 4 years old. I am at the shelter because I was found as a stray on 02/26/2024. I am potty trained. I am a high energy dog and I will need an owner with some prior pet owning experience. The shelter staff is not sure if I am used to being crated during the day, although I do well in my large kennel at the shelter. I do pull on my leash when being walked and need to work on my manners, so basic obedience training would be good for me. I do already know some basic commands like `sit` and `shake`! I would like a standard height fence to help keep me inside the yard, or lots and lots of walks on leash to help me burn off my energy. I can be good with men, women, and children over 10 years old. I can be good with other dogs and I cannot live with cats. All dogs are tested for heartworms and given flea preventatives. They are also tested for intestinal parasites and receive routine dewormings. Dogs are vaccinated against distemper, rabies, and bordetella, spayed/neutered before adoption, and have a microchip.
