Story
Adopt Dolce: Your New Best Friend in Training! Meet Dolce, a pint-sized terrier with a heart full of love! At just 15 lbs and around 1-2 years old with soulful eyes, Dolce is the perfect mix of sweet and spunky. She is a gentle soul who's always up for playtime. She loves making new doggy friends and will brighten your day with her wagging tail and warm eyes. While she enjoys playtime, Dolce is also a quiet little lady who’s happy to relax by your side. Dolce is working on trusting humans and can be a bit shy and timid at first, but she’s always so gentle and just needs a little patience and love to blossom. Once Dolce settles in, she’ll be the most loyal and loving companion you could ask for. Ready to give Dolce the forever home she deserves? Mostly housebroken and crate trained, Dolce is also learning to walk on a leash. With a bit of guidance and encouragement, she’ll be your perfect walking buddy but for now a fenced yard is a requirement for this sweet girl. We wish we knew her story, but she is a young dog (she found herself in a high-kill shelter in Texas and would most certainly have been euthanized if not pulled), coming out of her shell more and more each day-will jump up on the couch to sit with you, she isn't yet fully comfortable with being picked up but will allow it- then she just melts into you, loves her scratches and snuggles. Dolce still has a way to go but looking for her hero who will give her time to become the gem that she will be. PLEASE NOTE- AN APPLICATION FROM THE WEBSITE ALMOSTHOMEDOGS.ORG IS REQUIRED prior to any meet and greet. Calling, emailing and using the “contact us” link is not useful and will delay your consideration in the adoption of the dog. Petfinder inquires are not sent to us. The adoption fee is $425, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including age appropriate vaccinations, worming, flea/tick preventative and spay/neuter. All of our dogs will be microchipped.

Story
Jayden is a sweet pup with basic house and obedience training including crate training. She is very high energy, curious, and eager to learn new tricks. Her favorite games are tug, fetch, and chase, and she loves a good squeaky toy. I think she would do best in a single person household, preferably someone who woks from home and has lots of time and energy to dedicate to training and entertaining her. Jayden does struggle with reactivity, separation anxiety, resource guarding, and fear-based aggression. We have been working with her vet and a behavioral vet to develop a behavioral modification plan which currently includes anti-anxiety medications. I know that she will be the perfect companion for someone with time and dedication to help conquer her fears and I want to find her a forever home where all of her needs are met.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.All of the animals posted on our site have been temperament tested. While not all are in the immediate area, once we have processed and approved your application, we will move the dog to our adoptive area for you to meet, greet and hopefully adopt. Sometimes we will have more than one application on a dog. That does not mean it automatically goes to another family but you should be aware of the fact that until you are approved and set up for the meet/greet.. the dog could get adopted by another applicant.Small and full of the joy of life, Angel has super long, slender legs and a loving temperament. She was raised around many other dogs and cats and is good with all of them. She loves to be with her person and enjoys car rides. Always interested and happy to see and try new things, you would never know she is an older girl unless she told you she was 7. Healthy and happy, she was born to be a companion dog and her small natural weight and size have helped her with that goal. She tries hard to always be a good girl and will look to her human to see what is expected. Long done with puppy nuttiness, she has learned the wisdom of being able to sit quietly, but really enjoys being out and about, too. If you are thinking of adding a little girl to your home, Angel is a perfect choice.   If you are interested in Angel, please fill out an application at: https://reachoutrescue.rescuegroups.org/forms/form?formid=4588    Or contact: rorrcanine@gmail.com   *** Click here to sponsor this dog! ***Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.July 23, 2024, 10:55 am

Story
SOOOOOO how many people remember Starsky and Hutch?? Probably not too many! But if you DO, please don't prejudice us with the "wildness" of our namesakes'! OK, we are a LITTLE wild and cute cute cute! Found in a neighborhood together at about 2-3 months old, we could have had a very different life.... however, we were found by a couple of high school boys who immediately drove us to the rescue to see if they would help at 5pm on a Friday evening. AND IT WORKED!!! We are a couple of cute boys, we are barkers and that is part of the breed- Rat Terriers are busy and smart and active and they bark! We are cute when we bark though :) We do not have to be adopted together, although we love each other and have been together our WHOLE lives.... but we can be adopted apart. We may be nervous at first if adopted separately but if you follow the 3/3/3 rule, it will take us time to adjust in our new home anyway!! (you will find a copy of the 3/3/3 rules in our medical record if you adopt one or both of us) We are waiting for the right family/families to come along and we hope that we find you or you find us soooonnnnn!! Local adoption fee is $250 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $550 (includes transport to your area)
