Story
Looking for a friend for your dog? Look no further! This girl is one with a sad past but her daily transformation is so rewarding!!! While she’s wary of humans she's slowly learning love and trust. She could use a patient home where she can learn to love again. A home with other dogs is ideal as her confidence really shows around them! Once she's comfortable in her home she becomes a very playful girl, absolutely LOVES toys!!! She has shown amazing improvement in her foster home but requires lots of time and patience…. she has NEVER shown aggression. We truly believe she is a "dogs’ dog". She's not going to be a snuggler with people… content keeping distant from (most) humans … she would rather run and play with her four legged foster fur siblings.. at the end of the day she will join you on the couch to watch your favorite show or movie and may “snuggle” next to you.... Because of her shy temperament we want to see her in a home with other dogs where she can just be their friends and playmates.

Story
Hi, I'm Wilcrest. If you're a Houstonian, you may conclude how I got my name. I am sweet and shy at first but I'm friendly with cats, small dogs, and children. I love the safety of the my kennel and I even know where to go potty- outside! I am learning to walk on a leash and know that with practice, it'll be a perfect trip! I'm not too keen on being alone and will let you know. In order to be safe and secure, I need another pup in my forever home to help me come out of my shell. If you're looking for a companion to accompany you through life, I just might be your girl!

Story
Macy came from a person who said she found her. Macy is available for either in-state adoption or adoption and transport to another state. Macy looks like a rat terrier. We are guessing she is around 3 years of age and she weighs 15 pounds. As expected, she was a bit leery of the other dogs at first but now she is just as happy and playful as she can be. Macy is very affectionate and loves attention and pets. She likes to sit next to you on the couch and grumbles at the other dogs to keep them away so she can have all the attention. This is a bad habit and should not be encouraged. Macy is crate-trained and well-behaved in the house. She likes to roll herself up in a blanket when sleeping. Macy is getting chubby after her spay and her new family needs to take her on walks to lose weight. Macy is doing well with housetraining but may need more work. Because Macy is small, she must be protected from rough treatment by children or big dogs that could hurt her. She must also be protected from raptors and other outdoor predators. Macy must be an inside dog and a loved member of the family. To avoid injury, she will need steps to get on and off the couch and other furniture. Macy must be walked on a leash and would like a secure, fenced yard to run and play. Macy is healthy. She is spayed and tattooed, fully vaccinated (DAPPvL2, Bordatella, rabies), and microchipped. She is negative for heartworms and receives monthly heartworm and flea prevention. Macy has a $200 in-state adoption fee. Her out-of-state adoption fee is $450 and includes the cost of ground transport. She can be transported almost anywhere within the continental United States. Macy is located in Texas and cannot be transported until after she is adopted. Please send an email to 2manydogstx@gmail.com if you are interested in adopting this little sweet girl.

Penny was my father in law’s dog. He passed away and we are trying to find her a good home. We are too busy with two teenage boys to give her the care and the attention she needs. She is a sweet dog and just needs the right family.
