Story
Oreo was found as a pregnant stray tied up outside a business in the Houston area. She was terrified, but very cooperative, I think she knew she needed to trust someone to give her babies a safe place to come into the world. She was a terrific mama to all six of her puppies! They have all found homes, but mama finds herself still without one...more than two years later. Oreo needs an experienced adopter or a female only household. It takes her a very long time to trust males. They terrify her and she barks aggressively, although she has never lunged or bitten anyone. She does come around and is loving once she knows the male means her no harm. She LOVES her people and wants to hang out with them, receiving hugs as she wiggles her whole body in delight. She is spayed, UTD on vaccinations and preventatives. She is also HW-. Oreo is crate trained, housebroken, and loves to run around outside as well. She really just wants to be with her person and is content wherever that is.

Story
Damon is our very handsome senior Grey hound mix. He’s about 55 lbs and around 6 or 7 years old. If you’ve ever been in our office in the past 6 months he’s our office dog who sings his beautiful song when anyone comes in. He is house trained, crate trained and good with most dogs (some male dogs require slow introductions), and he’s good with kids. He is currently finishing heartworm treatment but he will be available the second week of September so we wanted to get him a head start at finding his forever home.
