Story
Hi. I'm Wicket. My name means "small gate or door. Foster mom says that means I get to open my own doors and create my own opportunities for success. That sounds like a big deal for a guy like me who was found wandering the streets of San Antonio as a stray. Luckily for me, the nice rescue lady found me in the shelter on death row and knew I was looking for my big opportunity. She sprang me from there and took me to live with my foster siblings at her home. My life has been looking up ever since. I am a 12 pound, approximately 4 year old, male, shitsu ( possibly mixed). I am extremely friendly and love all people and other dogs. Not sure about cats. I am good on a leash and like to go on car rides and snuggle with my people. I am very playful and especially love squeaky toys and balls. I would do best in a home with an active family. I prefer to be in the house but will spend time outside if others are out there. I am crate trained and am still working on potty training with a doggy door. As you can see, I am an all around good fellow looking for his golden opportunity in life. If you are that opportunity, have your peeps call my peeps and let's get this love affair started. $350 local $600 out of state (includes transport & fuel)

Story
If you're looking for a low-maintenance, well-behaved, friendly and handsome seasoned citizen, Jeffrey may be your guy. Jeffrey needs a patient human companion as he is a special needs dog with three good legs and one that he struggles with. It would be best if he is in a single level home with no stairs or children; other dogs are ok. He is completely house broken, loves people and being the center of attention and will bring loads of joy into your home. Jeffrey does great in the car and on short and slow walks. In the grass he is a little more comfortable and confident with his leg.You do not need a crate for Jeffrey as he does well when left alone. He is totally flexible where he sleeps and he will sleep in-which can be a bonus if you're not an early morning person. He loves having his ears scratched, he eats well and can be content as a couch potato. Come see Jeffrey today and be prepared to have your heart strings tugged!Interested in adopting this dog?

Story
My name is Fiona, like the princess from the beloved animated movie series "Shrek." Just like in my picture, I have mostly black fur with a tan undercoat. I'm a little over 3-months old and am not expected to get very big because I'm a Shih Tzu mix. I know how to use potty pads while in the house and I sleep all the way through the night. I love to play! My fosters say I've been doing really well walking on a leash and will tell you that I'm pretty smart because I've already figured out how to "sit" and "come." I get along with other dogs and cats too, but I might be too much for small children to handle. Did I mention that I love to play? Will you play with me?Interested in adopting this dog?

Story
My name is Tobias. If you are a country music fan you can call me "Toby," after Toby Keith. Some would say I am sweet as pie with my chocolate colored hair and small white patch on my chest like a dollop of cream. I bet you didn't know I have a special gift! That gift is to make non dog people change their minds! I love a good belly rub and roll over often to make sure I get as many as I can. I even let my small humans carry me around like a baby. I love to play and am even gentle with other dogs during playtime too! I have a real soft spot for anything peanut butter flavored. So, if you are looking to make your life that much sweeter, I am right here ready and willing for the job.Interested in adopting this dog?

Story
Hello, my friend! I am a quiet, senior gentleman searching for new people to love, possibly a lovely lady friend to snuggle and give me belly rubs (I have a very soft coat and dreamy puppy dog eyes ladies). I'm much happier cuddled up in my playpen or on a cozy lap than chasing toys or rabbits. I have impeccable house manners, never chewing things that aren't mine and always going outside to do my business. I enjoy an evening stroll on a loose leash or a snooze during a car ride. My eyes aren't what they used to be, but I get around fine with some guidance. A one-story home would be best for me. My foster mother mixes wet food with my kibble, which is delicious. I co-exist just fine with my foster sibling dog and might be fine with a cat as well. I'm a lover, not a fighter, but my foster mother says a home with children is probably not the best for me (maybe because of my vision challenges.) Come meet me and see for yourself. I'm eager to meet you and steal your heart.Interested in adopting this dog?
