Story
Hi I’m Oso!!! I am a Rottie-Chow mix.  My name means "bear" in  Spanish. My foster mom says I looked like an old grisly bear and now I am a soft, fluffy, and cuddly teddy bear. My journey is unfolding into a story of healing, hope, love, and the search for a  permanent home with my very own family. The first day of the rest of my life. On 2/2/24 my foster family found me wandering around a gas station. I felt invisible. I know lots of humans saw me asking for help, but they just turned away. I started to wonder if I even existed. Then it happened I realized  a person looking AT me. She was moving her mouth but I couldn’t hear anything. Thankfully she squatted down and was making hand gestures  like  she was actually calling me. I thought “Could it be possible that she actually sees me AND wants me to go to her?“ She seemed friendly, so I starting walking towards her, but it took a minute. I had a very hard time moving. My legs were painfully bound by my dirty and knotted fur. Each step I tried to take hurt terribly. Regardless, I put on my most brave and handsome smile, and kept moving. Secretly, I was worried that when I got closer and she really saw me (and smelled me) she would also turn  away like the others. When I finally got to her, she reached out and touched me. I know by the soft look in her eyes and the gentle touch of her hands I was finally safe. That was the moment I knew I would never have to look back at the life I bravely broke free from and desperately needed to forget.  My past. My skeletal frame covered by heavily matted fur gives  testament of a lifetime of deprivation and heartbreak. My foster mom discovered an old injury, a healed broken rib, that told her of the pains I’ve had to endure. The chain hanging heavily from my neck spoke of the years I spent tied up, only dreaming of running in open fields. It also is proof that I was brave and found the strength to break away  in search of freedom and a life I knew existed and wanted so badly.  I am resilient.  Despite my tribulations, my spirit has never waned. At heart I am youthful, reflecting the playfulness of the puppy I never really got to be. My energy manifests in bursts of joy but is quickly followed by long serene naps.  What makes me truly special, aside from my resilience, is a very unique trait that captures the hearts of those I meet.  One my foster family has fallen in love with from day one. My adorably unforgettable nose and a smile that's all my own! I have cleft lip, but it doesn’t bother me. I think it makes me extra special. My journey as a hearing impaired dog hasn't dampened my spirit; it's a part of what makes me, OSO!  I’m not ashamed, I am proud. I’m HAPPY! Happy all the time!  I have HOPE!  Under the care of my loving foster home, my life has taken a turn for the better. Each day is a step towards recovery, gaining weight, and building the strength that was once stripped from me. My health, once a concern, now shines brightly with a clean bill, including a heartworm-negative status, proving that I am on my path to not just surviving, but thriving.  My dream is simple: a forever home where the grass under my paws and the sun overhead are daily joys. A secure yard for my adventures, and a family that appreciates quiet companionship as much as I do. Though I might not seek out couch cuddles, being by your side, engaged in play or exploration, is where I find my happiness. The family I imagine will understand my journey, offering guidance and strength as I continue to grow in spirit and in health. My ideal human companions will be ready to continue the work of building my confidence and manners, especially as I navigate my newfound interests in toys and the company of other confident dogs. I’m making my mind up about small pup and cats, but I am VERY sure I love to chase squirrels. My foster family said there is perfect home for me, because I’m “the goodest boy ever.”  I am Oso, a survivor, a friend, and a gentle soul seeking a place where I can embrace  being loved and the gift of loving  in return.  My adoption fee is $200 locally in Houston, TX or $550 out of state (includes health certificate and travel fee). I am up to date on shots, neutered and microchipped. Fill out an application at https://toolkit.rescuegroups.org/of/f?c=ZGFVRHKK June 21, 2024, 3:09 pm

Story
Clifford is available for in-state adoption or adoption and transport to another state. There are not enough homes for all the unwanted dogs in Texas, so he is willing to relocate for a good, loving, forever home. Clifford was dumped on the side of a rural road with a litter of puppies. They were rescued by good Samaritans. Clifford is a super wonderful dog. He is very sweet, gentle, and good-natured. He is very sensitive and scared of mean voices, rough treatment, and dogs that are mean to him. He needs to be treated gently so he will trust you. Once he trusts you or another dog, he is very playful and loves playing. He especially loves puppies and gentle children. Clifford has shown an interest in cats, so he may not be good with them. Clifford is mostly Chow. He weighs around 60 pounds and we estimate he may be around 2 years old. Clifford is crate-trained, knows how to sit, and walks well on a leash. He rides well in a vehicle but is a bit nervous about getting inside the vehicle. Clifford is fabulous with nice children. He is shy with new people (especially men) and takes some time to trust. We are sure he was abused by whoever had him before. Clifford does need work with housetraining (sure he has never been in a house before) and could probably use other gentle obedience training. We want Clifford to be in the house as a loved member of the family. He needs to be walked on a leash and would like a securely fenced yard to run and play. Clifford is healthy. He is neutered, fully vaccinated (DAPPvL2, Bordatella, rabies), and microchipped. Clifford has been treated for heartworms and they are now dead. He is on monthly heartworm and flea prevention. We would love Clifford to have a fabulous forever home and we will consider both in-state or out-of-state applications. Clifford has a $250 in-state adoption fee. His $500 out-of-state adoption fee includes the cost of ground transport, and he can be transported almost anywhere within the continental United States. Clifford is being fostered in Texas and cannot be transported until after he is adopted. Please send an email to 2manydogstx@gmail.com if you are interested in adopting this wonderful boy.

Story
Hachi was roaming our neighborhood for a few weeks. We brought him home and he has adjusted to our pack very well. He feels safe to come in the house after several days of coaxing him. And now sleeps inside on his pad. He is a good eater, still working on taking treats gently. He loves attention and lots of petting. He is not much of a barker. He is a very easy dog, he is happy being outside or inside. It's easy to get attached to him. Hachi completed the "fast kill" method of heartworm treatment on 1/24/2024. He will need a follow up heartworm test in July 2024, which will be covered by the Rescue. Hachi will need to remain on heartworm prevention for the remainder of his life to prevent reinfection. If interested in adopting, please complete an application on our website at www.hhfrescue.org. Thank you for considering a rescued dog!

Sampson prefers to be the only fur baby in the home, so no children, dogs or kitties for this pup. **He also needs a foster home!** **Sampson is located in Willis, TX. Paid transport can be arranged.

Story
Hey there! I'm Mochi, your future silly sidekick. I'm a young, energetic chow chow with a zest for life and a genuine love of other dogs. My best friend and playmate is former K9AR monarch, Tito. Playtime, puzzles, and walkies keep my busy brain happy, but nothing tops treats, road trips, and cold floors. My thick coat needs regular brushing and detangling, plus regular home grooming to look my best. Trusting a groomer will take time; they need to understand my breed's aloofness and know not to shave a chow. I was born with hip dysplasia and though my hips have healed from surgery, I'm still very wary of anyone touching them. Look, I'm 90% loyal to my special human, with 10% reserved for my most authentic self. Bringing a guy around? Nope. Husband or dad? Sorry, still no. Friends? They shall not perceive me. My attention and affection are yours... that is until you leave the front door open - then it's later days nerd! So, what's my ideal match? A solo gal who works from home or is semi-retired, with another friendly chow or playful dog in an adult-only environment where my quirks and boundaries are respected. Oh, and a sense of humor is essential! (once you've seen my evening zoomies, you'll understand) So how 'bout it - ya wanna spend, like, a lotta time getting to know each other? Mochi is a female Chow/Spitz mix with an estimated date of birth of 02/10/2022.

Story
Vinny is a unique and charming 3-year-old black Chow mix with a personality all his own. He may be a bit independent, but he has a warm heart. The groomer described him as a love bug. Vinny is selective when it comes to receiving affection, but once he bonds with you, he'll melt your heart with his deep loyalty. Vinny is well-behaved during car rides and knows the command "sit." Vinny is looking for a loving home with people who appreciate Chows and understand his need for independence. While he hasn't been tested with other dogs, a careful introduction is recommended, but he's not dog-reactive. Vinny is patiently waiting for a home where he can truly shine and share his special love with a family that understands and accepts him for who he is. **Vinny is located in Tulsa, OK. Paid transport can be arranged. Transport costs range from $200-400.** If you are interested in adopting, please complete an application @ https://form.jotform.us/41173109602142.
