Story
Hello! This is Arlo. He is a sweet boy who loves to play. He was found on the side of the road and after an extensive search for his humans, he came to live with me as a foster. I have 3 cats and he is slightly afraid of them but definitely wants to play with them. He is still a pup so we are working on potty training and everyday manners. He would LOVE a home with a big fenced in yard where he can run until his little legs give out. He has had up close interaction with small dogs and he did okay. He currently has crate time when I am at work and he does just fine. He doesn't love going into it but once he is in, he's ok. Since he is a foster pet, I do have a lot of dog related items that I will no longer need once he finds his furever home including: his toys, his dog bed, his large crate, his leash, all of his crate accessories, his food and water bowls, etc. These items will be included with him-I know it's a lot taking on a pup so this will hopefully help!

Story
Hallo Mate!!! I am the EPITOME of Australian Kelpie dogs, smart and agreeable, loving and playful, driven and very treat oriented! And I am a GREAT size!! Now, my life has not always been AWESOME BLOSSOM, if you know what I mean?? I was found in the valley with basically NO HAIR, but a magnetic and charming personality that won over a nice lady who saved me!!! AND my charm won over the rescuer in San Antonio who took a chance on me, and I won the doggy lottery!! I mean, look at me now!! I am a hairy boy, with meat on my bones and love in my heart! READY to take the plunge with my FUREVER family!! I am super smart and need an active family. I will do anything you want me to, if it is followed by the treats I love! :) And I will make some great arm candy when you are out on the trails, or at the beach or in the mountains... or all three! ADOPT ME!!! I will keep you company wherever you go!! 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
Lieutenant Natasha Yar, chief security officer aboard the USS-Enterprise, reporting for duty! Of course, you can just call me Tasha. Much like my namesake character from Star Trek: The Next Generation, I am small but mighty and a true protector! I am also (partially) blonde and my funny tiny ears match Tasha Yar's short hair. Also like Tasha, I have had a rrruff life before now and am happy to start anew. I have a little bit of a funny appearance. I have my tiny ears, looong legs, and my eyes sometimes go out to the sides. It's really hard to know what breeds I may be mixed with. All I know is that I'm super sweet and loving but have no problem being feisty too. I'm still a pup after all! I love to wrestle with the other dogs in the house and we get along great, though I do have to eat separately. I get barky when I have food because I feel the need to protect it! I am doing amazing with things like house training, leash training, and being comfortable with car rides. Behind my tough exterior, I'm actually a very sweet and snuggly girl! I'll rub all over you like a cat and always be by your side waiting for love. I am even great with smaller humanoids. I'm ready for a family of my own to explore the galaxies with. Apply today!

Story
Meet Mocha, a delightful Hound/Pointer mix on a quest for her forever home. This medium sized sweetheart boasts a playful spirit and a talent for sitting on command. And gorgeous she is!! Melt into her amber eyes, set back by the chocolate/golden and cream backdrop and you have an unbeatable combination :) Rescued from the streets, Mocha is potty and crate trained, and she's good with fellow canines and people, though untested with cats and kids-she has a gentle nature. Her endearing qualities include a penchant for cuddles, a sharp intellect, and a love for playing with stuffed animals. With occasional zoomies, Mocha thrives in a larger yard, making her an ideal companion for an active family. Her favorite pastime? Belly rubs and chasing Pretty Woman vibes. Adopt Mocha, and let the symphony of love begin! 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)

Their fur tells a story, resilience in strands, Eyes wide with wonder, in a world that demands. Chips, like a chocolate kiss, in the moonlight gleams, Oreo, sweet as cream, in the sun's soft beams. Together they dance, like cookies in delight, Found on the road, under the pale moonlight. Names that echo love, like a sweet melody, In a world so vast, they find harmony. For an active family, with hearts open wide, Chips Ahoy and Oreo, stand side by side. A duo of joy, in a furry embrace, With paws of love, they quicken life's pace. If you have a canine companion to adore, These lab mixes will give you even more. Adopt, don't shop, let their tails tell the tale, Of how love rescues, and fears assail.
