Story
Meet Espresso! She loves to be carried around and snuggled on and favorite activities are sleeping and snuggling. She would be great as an only dog or with a similarly inclined friend for companionship. Essie loves being in her crate, and is quiet. She is reliably potty trained, but will use pads in the enclosure. When rescued, she had a bad case of mange so lost some of her hair. She is healthy now but may need to wear a sweater to keep warm. She is good with cats and other dogs. Essie is about 9.5 years old and weighs 8 pounds. She would love a forever home to live her best life and get all the snuggles she deserves!!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. 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.

Story
Meet Emma! She was nervous at the rescue, but she warmed up really quickly in her foster home! Within 2 days, she was comfortable and approaching everyone in the home. She's doing great with potty training. She's quiet throughout the night in her kennel, but she prefers to sleep in bed with her person. She's incredibly snuggly and just wants to be with you. She's great with other dogs and cats. She's very gentle and submissive. Emma's a fantastic dog who would be great as part of a 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.
