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!

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 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)

Story
Hi there, I'm Crook! I'm a lively little puppy with a heart full of love and paws full of energy. I'm sweet as can be, and I have a brave spirit that's always ready for new adventures. I'm independent, but I love playtime with my friends Hercules and Meg. I'm also quite curious, always eager to explore and learn new things. My playful nature makes every day an exciting one. I'm looking for a forever home where my energetic personality can shine and where I can share my love. Adopting me means gaining a loyal friend who will bring joy and fun into your life. ##2056618##

If you are seeing our pets posted in your state, that's because you live near a transport stop, they are not currently at that location. Petfinder lists our pets as 'Out of Town' pets at other locations, and Adopt-a-Pet lists our location as a Transport stop. Those are currently the only options they offer to make this clear, so we put this description we've put at the bottom to explain it.

Everybody meet Cooper, and don't let his sad eyes deceive you. Cooper is a happy go lucky dog looking for an experienced dog owner who can help him with some training. He does great with other dogs and would love another doggy sibling to help teach him some more manners and to get his energy out. Toys are his absolute favorite thing and he will often take them on walks with him, carrying them the whole way. At all only being a year and a half he has a lot of life left in him and is ready for a life filled with love and comfy seats!

Milo is a super sweet and fun loving guy who recently had to be surrendered to us due to his owner falling ill. Now he is looking for a home that can love him just as much as his previous owner! He can be a bit nervous and shy at first but becomes a total goofball once you get to know him. He has quite a bit of energy and loves to run around and get crazy with the other pups here, but is also down for a nice cuddle with the people he loves most. Stop by our Mills Civic location to meet this special 45lb man with a heart of gold!

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 adores children - can be a little jumpy with her love but would like a kiddo to love on. 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
Remi is a very loving and loyal 5yr old who loves to suuggle. Remi needs a lot of attention and reassurance and likes to stay close to his person. He is very calm and gentle. He has never been aggressive and rarely barks. Only heard him bark a single bark a handful of times at most. Remi loves healthy treats and has never been food aggressive. He does tend to eat too fast so he uses a slow feeder. Remi knows sit, stay, lay down, roll over, hugs, and shake. Remi does not self iniate play often. His favorite toy is a tennis ball that he loves to chase. Remi is very loved and this is a very hard decision but our situation has changed and will be changing even more where we will be home less so we are looking for the right home where he will be very loved and get lots of attention. Preferably looking for a home with someone who is retired or who is home most of the time. I would like to meet you and bring Remi over for a visit. I'm sure I forgot a lot so please ask questions.
