Story
We found Marley dumped on a gravel road over 11 years ago. She was a young pup, who was never claimed upon looking for her owner. She has been around other dogs and done very well with proper introduction. She also lives with two cats and does not mind them. The reason we need to rehome her is because a recent incident regarding our 11 month old. She has been fine with him until recently, when she nipped him. Since he started crawling, it's been stressful for her. We never had her around a baby until now. She’s an older adult, and would do best with a family of without kids, or with older children who have experience around animals. Marley has never been a biter, even with strangers holding her, so it breaks my heart to learn that she is uncomfortable with infants. She is potty trained to go out and do her business and come back in. If you are gone longer than 4 hours, I recommend kenneling her, because she does not have accidents when kenneled.

Meet Munchkin! She’s the perfect lap dog! This incredibly adorable girl has had 3 litters with her much larger lab companion, according to her previous owners. We’re amazed she survived it! Munchkin is about 2.5 years old and weighs 10 pounds. She’s very friendly and loves all people young and old. She’s good with other dogs too, but likes to chase cats. Munchkin is house trained and kennel trained and ready to find her forever family!IMPORTANT: Please read all below, especially if you live outside of Texas, which is where our rescue is located.Apply to adopt on our website: https://www.charmingpetrescue.org/adoptAll of our animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up to date on shots.ALL of our animals are located in Boerne, TX, but transport after adoption is available to other states for a $300 fee for dogs or an additional fee varying by location for cats.

Story
Meet the precious one-eyed Pixie! She came to the rescue frightened and unsure of everything. Now she’s the sweetest little 10 pound chihuahua mix who just wants to cuddle with her human! She loves her foster sisters, and she has mastered the doggy door. Pixie loves to sleep snuggled next to you, but she also doesn’t mind sleeping in her doggy bed on the floor. She is still working on potty training and she is fine in the crate. She will need a couple of days to get used to you, and she can be an escape artist until then, so she needs to have a close eye on her the first few days. She will also need time to bond to her human as she occasionally shies away from her foster mom, but she just wants to be loved and held and she wants to find her person! Pixie is a senior gal about 8.5 years old and can’t wait to find a forever home to enjoy her golden years!IMPORTANT: Please read all below, especially if you live outside of Texas, which is where our rescue is located.Apply to adopt on our website: https://www.charmingpetrescue.org/adoptAll of our animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up to date on shots.ALL of our animals are located in Boerne, TX, but transport after adoption is available to other states for a $300 fee for dogs or an additional fee varying by location for cats.
