Story
Forest is the sweetest companion when you get to know him, but he takes some time to warm up to you. Hes a rescue pup. When we got him 3 years ago, he was skittish and you could count his ribs. But with some patience he found some confidence and reached a healthy weight. He attached strongly to my wife. She works with him daily to build confidence through training and expectations. Hes snuggly with her and they go to coffee, play cat and mouse, and man you should see him run full tilt in circles in the back yard. Thats when the whippet REALLY comes out. Hes well behaved with her but shies away from everyone else. He will cower or sometimes growl. Like many Whippets he is happiest as a one-person dog, but is fine with me and the kids, just not close with us. Because of a recent medical change to our family circumstances, we have new people cycling through our house daily. It is stressful for him, hard on my wife, and simply not sustainable for the people coming into our home.

Story
Meet Cassidy, the Charming Introvert! Get ready to fall in love with Cassidy, a pale white pup with captivating puppy eyes and a heart-shaped nose. Despite a challenging past where he navigated the streets and scrounged for survival, Cassidy's resilience shines through. Now, he's on a mission to find a loving home where he can feel safe and cherished. Cassidy is a dog with a gentle and timid personality. Loud noises and intense reactions make him nervous, and he prefers a calm and serene environment. He needs time to warm up to people and build trust before he feels comfortable and secure. This smart little guy knows some tricks already and is a well-mannered companion during feeding time. He's polite and respectful, showing his intelligence and willingness to please. Sitting on command is just one of the many tricks he has mastered. When it comes to relaxation, Cassidy's favorite spot is snuggled up on the couch or bed. He loves cozy naps and enjoys sleeping in when it's chilly or rainy outside. His head and ears are the sweet spots for scratches and cuddles, and he might even roll over for a belly rub! Cassidy is searching for someone who will shower him with love and understanding. While he respects cats and tolerates other dogs, he prefers his own space and will often retreat to a separate room. However, when the other dogs are not around, he comes out for attention and cuddles. He enjoys the quiet company of a select few men, seeming to have a preference for quieter individuals. It's important to note that Cassidy is not a fan of chaos, whether it's caused by humans or other dogs. He seeks a serene and calm environment where he can feel at ease. Car rides are a pleasure for him, as long as he is the sole rider and not in a crowded car with other dogs. To provide Cassidy with his ideal home, a single, quiet man with no other dogs or possibly a submissive dog that Cassidy meets and approves of would be the perfect match. An at-home social life that aligns with his introverted nature is preferable. While Cassidy tends to avoid general interaction and may not seek pets, hugs, or kisses, he has his moments of affection when he feels comfortable. Cassidy may be an introverted hermit, but beneath his reserved exterior lies a dog yearning for love and understanding. If you're someone who appreciates the quiet moments and can provide a calm and peaceful environment, Cassidy will reward you! (Only) Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX)

Story
Howl was adopted from an organization that rehomes street dogs from Mexico. Him and his brothers were found in a slaughterhouse there and I adopted him at about 3 months. He’s about 1 year old now. He had a hard first few months and this has some engrained issues. Because of his life on the street, he does have some food aggression, and it takes a while to earn his trust. He is reactive towards unfamiliar people and dogs he doesn’t know, but will generally be once he warms up to them. His future home will need to have patience and be willing to work on his behavioral issues. That said, he’s a super smart guy, and highly food motivated. He picks up tricks and skills easily. When you are in his tribe, he is really sweet, loyal, and just wants belly rubs and neck scratches. I am only rehoming him bc he and his brother (also reactive) have gotten into multiple fights, and since i am the only one taking care of both, and am unable to handle these scuffles on my own.
