BOOSTS YOUR MOOD, MAKES YOU SMILE  Est. DOB 1/7/15, WEIGHT 12.7 lbs. Arf! Arf, everyone! I’m Sammy, a sweet, friendly, quiet, and affectionate white Maltipoo (Maltese/ Mini Poodle mix) fella who is, in my humble opinion, the world’s greatest little dog. I think my foster mom agrees because she loves it that I curl up and settle in her lap whenever I can. There are two resident dogs and a cat in my foster home, but I’m much rather interact with beloved Foster Mom than play with them. I have a comical idiosyncrasy: I like to burrow under anything I can move and get under. You name it – bedcovers, blankets, pillows, throws. Foster Mom thinks it’s adorable that a cute little thing such as I am likes to excavate my own little lair like a mole. Let me tell you a little about Maltipoos. We’re gentle, social dogs who love people. Our happy, cheerful dispositions are guaranteed to boost your mood and make you smile. We can even be good therapy dogs because of the comfort we provide. And I’m no exception to this profile! I really looked like a mess when my foster mom first rescued me! Oh my goodness – I weighed only 10 pounds! You could see every bone on my vertebrae, plus I had no hair on my back. My eyes were practically glued shut with “goop” from an infection; I also had an ear infection; and my mouth was a mess from neglected preventative dentistry. Thank heavens Foster Mom and the vet have transformed me into a new man! With a steady diet of nutritious food, I’ve gained 2.5 pounds, I’m filling out nicely, and my fur is growing back! I’m eating a soft diet that’s appropriate after all of the diseased teeth (that hadn’t already fallen out) have been pulled. I look and feel so much better! And the silver lining about having no teeth is that I don't need any future dental cleanings! Medications have cleared up my original eye and ear infections. The vet also diagnosed that I have a condition called “dry eye,” which means that I don’t produce tears like I should. So Foster Mom puts drops in my eyes twice a day and cleans out any “goop” once to twice a day Thanks to the hair around my eyes being clipped, Foster Mom can clean out my eyes easier. I have cataracts in both eyes so I have very limited visibility and bump into things, but get around once I've learned my way! I generally move slow so I don’t hurt myself ! Even though I sleep a good portion of the day, I am quite aware of sounds and scents. I will sound the alarm at unfamiliar noises. I will track Foster Mom down if she has moved from where I left her using my superior olfactory senses. My ideal home would be one that has a doggie door to a small fenced back yard and someone to keep me company.  I’m so grateful for all the love and attention that I’m getting! In return, I snuggle and cuddle like you wouldn’t believe! I’ve learned how to use the doggie door, and I’m now crate-trained. If you’re looking for a cozy lap dog and can look past my limitations, I’d really like to be your dog! Half of my life is still ahead of me, so let’s spend it together! My heart has so much love to give, all that’s missing is YOU!

Story
Hi, Caspian here.... I was taken to a vet to be euthanized due to my cataracts. :( THANKFULLY, a volunteer fell in love with me and took me into her home as a foster. I am too sweet and loving - and full of life- to be euthanized. I may be 13 years of age, but I have plenty of years left in me! I cannot see well and do run into things, but I can see well enough to jump up onto a bed to sleep with my human:) I am excellent on a leash, potty-trained, great with kids, cats, and dogs - I am the perfect dog! I enjoy going for walks and cuddles. I even get a little playful sometimes! I need a dental, which SCP will take care of, but other than that, I am good to go! Come meet me one Saturday at Petco. I will likely be showing in the cat section. Love, Caspian If you are interested in Caspian, please send an email to SCP! Applications can be found on our website at secondchancepets.org under the "Forms" tab. Please complete and return to SCP for review!  The adopter for this dog must reside in the immediate Houston/Galveston area and be at least 25 years old. A home visit may be required prior to this dog going to any home. The adoption fee for a dog is $190 (or $245 for puppies).   Adoptions are held on Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Clear Lake Petco, 2410 Bay Area Boulevard. All dogs are microchipped, on heartworm protection, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed and treated for fleas. Since all our dogs are in foster homes, an individual dog may not be at our weekly Adoption Event due to conflict with a foster's schedule. If you are interested in meeting a particular dog, please send an email to scpdogworld@gmail.com so that the Dog Coordinator can let you know if the dog will be at the Saturday Adoption Event at Petco. If you just want to meet some great dogs looking for their forever home, please come visit with us on Saturday! May 24, 2024, 4:52 pm

Story
Elmo - Maltese - Male - 2 years - www.twyla.org If you'd like to know more about this dog please visit our website at www.Twyla.org Meet Elmo: this gorgeous little Maltese mix was found in a ditch in Humble, injured and terribly matted. We picked him up from Animal Control and brought him straight to the Vet for immediate treatment as he was limping and was likely in pain from his matted hair pulling on his skin. He was shaved and treated, and went to recover in a foster home. We learned that Elmo is only about 2 years old, and has broken ribs on both sides of his shoulders with nerve damage on his front left leg, likely from being kicked. The ribs are slowly healing, as ribs do and recovering from nerve damage can take even longer, if the nerve recovers. He is not using that leg to get around, but rather to stabilize him when he plays. And does he play: he loves running around and playing with toys, loves babies (!) and gets along well with the other dogs and cats in the foster home. He can be a little spicy with new people, but Vets and groomers both report that when handled with care and patience he does fine. Elmo is looking for a patient home with or without and other small low key dogs in it, cats are fine, Infants and small kids are fine, but a loud and hectic household with older kids running around is not his favorite. He's more of a quiet snuggle-on-the-couch kinda guy. Short walks are fine, lots of outdoor time is not his thing. He can be spicy with new people and does require patience and time to build trust with new people in his house. he bonds quickly and strongly to his caretaker. His front let may or may not  recover from the injury suffered, he has sensation in the toes but doesn't use the leg tyo get around. As long as he is not dragging and injuring the leg, there is no reason the amputate, according to our vets. ***Please note: All dogs are fostered in private homes of volunteers, so to meet a dog please fill out an Adoption Application on our website (http://www.twyla.org/adopt/our-adoption-process) so we may setup a private meetup with the dog or coordinate for an Introduction at the next general Adoption Meet and Greet (as listed on our website: (http://www.twyla.org/upcoming-events), as not all dogs attend all Meet and Greets***
