Peggy Sue - Ft Worth, TX
This is Peggy Sue! She is an approximately 13 yr old, 10 lb, female Chihuahua.
She was rescued from the shelter when she was about 10 when her human passed away. She was very scared and nippy. She went into foster care and then was adopted in 2016. She had a great home as an only dog, and she got very spoiled and loved her walks, car rides etc. Sadly her human passed in Nov of 2017, grown granddaughter tried to keep her but had other dogs and small children. Not a good fit so she came back to us. She had a lingering cough which their vet had been treating as chronic bronchitis. Our vet has had her on Albuterol, she does better but still coughs when up and about. She would love to be the only dog and receive all the attention. She will go to the door and let you know she wants out but will also use potty pad if necessary. We are a foster based rescue and we feel as if she would blossom without the added stress. For more information, visit https://www.lucyslostlovedones.org/ . You can also call or emai lthe rescue at: 817-714-0990 or Threeweedogstn@yahoo.com. Her current foster, Tanya, can be reached at 817-880-4403.
Sophia - Ft. Worth, TX
Meet Sophia! Sophia is a 12 yr old female Chihuahua who weighs 7 lbs.
Sophia is a cute little girl. She has bad joints, vet seems to think she was used as a breeding dog and kept in a crate. We have her right leg in a splint as it helps to straighten out her foot. The tendon in that leg seem to tighten up and she will walk on her tip toes and then her foot starts going under. Does not seem to hurt her as she lets the vet manipulate her joints. She does not like other dogs getting in her space. She loves her bed and blanket. Gets along well with people and likes to ride in the car. She will use potty pads. Sophia needs a quiet home where she is the only pet and no kids.
These thrown-away breeding animals deserve a quiet home to live out their days! For more information you may call Roberta Womack 817-714-0990 Or Tanya Nuttall ( current foster) 817-880-4403 or visit the website at https://www.lucyslostlovedones.org/ .
Roxie - Ft. Worth, TX
This is Roxie! Roxie is a 9 lb, 7 lb female Chihuahua. Roxie is good with small dogs, would be better in a home with no kids, and will both use a doggy door and a piddle pad!
She has been in rescue for a little over 5 yrs. Tragically, both of her humans passed within a week of each other and she and her siblings were left in the house to fend for themselves. Our rescue took in 4 of these babies.
Roxie is quite a cutie, gets along with everyone but does stay to herself a lot. For the past 4 yrs she has had seizures. We put her on phenobarbital but it was so hard on her system we switched her over to potassium bromide. She gets a very low dose every day. With the testing the vet could not pinpoint a medical reason. It seems when she gets stressed she has one. She goes months without having one. She could use a calm home without any extra stressors.
For more information on this adorable girl, you can visit https://www.lucyslostlovedones.org/ . Inquiries to Roberta Womack 817-714-0990 or email: or call Tanya Nuttall (current foster) 817-880-4403 or email email@example.com.
Dozer - Spring, TX
This handsome guy is Dozer! Dozer is a 13 yr old neutered male Lab mix who weighs 60 lbs.
He is an older gentleman, and therefore prefers a bit more Netflix and chill than the active lifestyle of his younger counterparts. He likes to play with his foster siblings, but tires quicker and enjoys relaxing on the couch or dog bed near his human. He would do best in a home with kids over 12 yrs.
Dozer is good with other dogs, but no cats. He needs to be let out to potty on a more consistent basis, as we believe he might have retention issues and cannot hold it for very long...it's tough getting older!
Dozer is up to date on his vaccinations and microchipped. His adoption fee is our senior discounted rate $120 You can complete an adoption application by visiting our website www.RockABullyAF.com and then "Adopters". The adoption application is mobile, tablet, and computer friendly. Message us if you have any questions!
Felix - College Station, TX
This poor little guy is Felix. He is a younger Pomeranian, neutered male, who weighs about 7 lbs.
Felix needs a very special permanent home! This boy was found as a stray and turned into a high kill shelter in Houston.
He was injured and radiographs showed multiple pelvic fractures - sweet guy must have been in so much pain. He was most likely kicked or hit by a car. He is paralyzed with minimal chance of regaining mobility.
He was recently neutered, given a dental, microchipped, vaccinated, and tested low positive for heart worms. His pain is being managed with medication and we have a wheelchair for him. He is a sweet boy that is very scared around new people, but after a couple of days, he won't want to leave your lap. He does have to have his bladder manually expressed every 6-8 hours but this is really easy to do. He is good with other animals but due to his physical issues, shouldn't be placed in a family with young kids.
Felix has SO much love to give and he deserves a chance to live his best life!! You won't regret it! For more information, please email: .
Champ - Pflugerville, TX
This smiling boy is 8 yr old, 80 lb Champ! He is a neutered male and he's a handsome big boy!
Champ had a significant injury to his elbow in 2014 which seems stable right now but he has arthritis and will need some medical maintenance in the future to keep him comfortable. Hey, he's an older gentleman and who doesn't have some aches and pains?
Champ is fully housebroken and the best couch-warmer you'll find. In between naps, Champ is fond of sitting and chewing on a bone. Champ is dog selective (definitely no small-breed female dogs) and he is not cat friendly. His rescue has had him for over a year can tell you all about who he would live well with if you inquire!

Deuce - Tomball, TX
This sweetheart is Deuce! He is a 13-14 yr old, 17 lb, neutered male Miniature Schnauzer.
In his own words: I’m Deuce, a male salt and pepper Miniature Schnauzer who is about ten years old and weighs a bout seventeen pounds with natural ears and a docked tail. I was found wandering the streets of Austin and even though I had a microchip, my owner never came to get me. I know that it was through no fault of mine that she didn’t show up. I’m a friendly, mellow easy going senior boy just looking for his retirement home. I’m crate, house and leash trained and am just easy to have around and very very easy to love. I should not live in a house with cats.

Toby - Mexia, TX
This little guy is Toby. He is approximately an 8 yr old, 17 lb, neutered male terrier mix.
Toby is a small terrier mix who came into our shelter when his owner had to go into a nursing home and could no longer care for him.
Family members unfamiliar with Toby brought him to us with little information about him or the other animals from the household being surrendered.
He was not doing well when he came in, but we didn’t know why (we aren’t even sure of his age). One of our shelter employees noticed he was having difficulty eating and switched him to his own kennel with special food. After doctor visits and much investigation, it was determined that Toby is diabetic and will require daily insulin, regular vet visits and a special diet for the rest of his life.
For more information please call Melissa Jarvis at 281-904-1939.
Noel - Quinlan, TX
This beauty is Noel. She is a <5 yr old female boxer who weighs 42 lbs.
Noel was found on the service road of Interstate 30 on Christmas Eve morning. We thought she was blind. She has had a tumor removed from one eye and entropian surgery for eyelashes that were growing inward. What was discovered is she also has Mammary cancer. We do not not how long she has but she is active, playful and loves to go for walks and we want her to have a good life and live indoors and experience the love of a family. She was living with a foster with multiple dogs but can get irritated with other dogs. We think being an only dog or limited time with other dogs suits her best.
Noel is available for adoption with no distance limitations. For more information please email: or call: 214-535-5230.
Rodeo - Ft Worth, TX
This big handsome fellow is Rodeo. He is a 3 yr old, 86 lb, neutered male Great Dane/ Lab mix.
DFW Lab Rescue pulled Rodeo several months ago from a shelter that was over capacity with dogs. He was in danger of being euthanized. He was such a beautiful, big, sweet boy we could not let that happen!
He gets along just fine with kids, but we have not seen him with kids under around 10 years. He is picky about his dog friends. If he likes them he loves to run and play with them. He loves to play with a large female golden retriever that is at the vet boarding facility where he is. But that isn't the case with all dogs, he has his own criteria it seems.
Shortly after we rescued him he started having seizures. He now takes Zonisamide daily for his seizures. The vet thinks the seizures are brought on by stress, so a calmer home with no more than one or two other dogs might be best.
We are really hoping to find the perfect home for him. He is so deserving of a good life! For all information, please call or text Liz Liles DFW Lab Rescue 817-240-1611.
Simon - Houston, TX
Meet Simon! He is an 11 yr old, 45 lb, neutered male Bull Terrier.
Simon is just a swell all around guy. He is very fond of going for nice walks and is a quiet, mellow and easy going guy. Simon is good with other dogs, no cats or small furries! He's great with all humans.
Simon is looking for a retirement home that involves a fluffy bed, plenty of treats, and those nice walks. (He says the bow tie isn't necessary though).
Simon was surrendered to be euthanized at San Antonio Animal Control by his family with whom he'd lived for his entire life. His family said he had bad skin and was blind .... turns out to be a bit of demodex (which is not contagious and we are treating with Bravecto and medicated baths, fur is coming back already) and dry eye, which is being treated with daily drops! He is doing much better just a short while after pulled by our rescue!
Poor guy has lived outside for 9 years in the Texas heat and he is heartworm positive. He will be going back to the et soon for a check up/ more bloodwork to see how he is improving so we can decide whether to do immiticide heartworm treatment, or put him on monthly heartgard slow method. The shelter neutered him and he is now microchipped.
Because of his age and general poor health, we would not ask for an adoption fee for Simon, but for the right home we are happy to provide his eye meds and heartgard (if we go that route) for the next 12 months or immiticide heartworm treatment at no charge.
Simon's rescue can arrange transport for a qualified adopter! You can email: or visit our website at www.texasbullterrier.org/rescue to complete an application form if you want to be Simon's forever family.
Sancho - Plano, TX
Meet Sancho! He is a 9 yr old, 18 lb, neutered male Boston Terrier.
Hi! I'm Sancho. I'm a sweet little guy, about 9 years old, and I am looking for a family to love me forever. I'm a little guy, just about 18 lbs. I like to ride in the car and I sleep in my crate...but would love to sleep with you if you'd let me!
I'm really not a high energy guy but I will get really excited when you come home and my little nub tail will wag my whole body because I'm so happy to see you!! I do like going for walks with my person or but I am also content just sitting on the couch watching tv and snuggling. I don’t really like to play ball but I will chase you around the yard for a minute.
Storms scare me a lot and I will need someone to make me feel safe when the wind and thunder comes. My perfect home would be a place without young children because they make me nervous and a home where I can be the only dog because I like to be the boss. I take phenobarbital 2x per day because I have seizures. I am up to date on all my immunizations and ready to go home.
We adopt in Texas and surrounding areas (New Mexico, Lousiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma).

Miley - Plano, TX
Meet Miley! She is a 7 yr old, 21 lb, female spayed Boston Terrier! Sweet Miley is great with other animals, kids, and is housebroken!
Just look at my smile! I'm Miley and I just love everyone I meet. I am about 7 years old and I am a very affectionate girl who loves to give kisses. I am easy going and get along with other dogs, I love to be with kids and I am very gentle with the tiny humans.
My ideal family would let me cuddle up next to someone to take naps but I would also like to have another dog to play with because I have lot of energy. I love to play soccer and will chase the ball around the yard, Sometimes I get super excited when playing with another dog or if a person playing with me has a toy, and I bark because I can't help but express my joy when I play!
I don’t like storms and will ask you to comfort me when it thunders. If you are not home and I have a way to get out, like an open doggy door, I might dig to get out of your fence so please don't give me that chance. I really love to be with my humans and would appreciate a family who is available to be with me as much as possible.
I have diabetes and will always need insulin injections twice per day. It’s NOT a real big deal but I will need a family who will make sure I get my medication and special food to keep me healthy. I may be a Boston Terrier mix ..it's hard to tell for sure but it's quite possible because my snout is longer then normal. If you want a high energy gal who loves to play, I am the girl for you.
We only adopt to homes in the state of Texas and surrounding states (Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma & Arkansas)

Tippy - Boerne, TX
Meet Tippy! She is an approximately 12 yr old, 20 lb, female spayed terrier type mix.
Tippy was found stray and is a sweet and very loving senior girl. She gets along with other animals, kids, and she is housebroken!
She has allergies that are easily managed but I can’t manage them here at the rescue because I can’t give her a special diet, everyone eats out of the same bowls. Other than her allergies and age, she’s a healthy girl! It’s so hard to get anyone to see past the number 12, maybe you can?
For all contact info, please call 210-843-8326 or email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. This rescue can assist with transporting Tippy to a new home!!
Buffy - Boerne, TX

Buffys elderly gentleman owner was put into a home and he couldn’t take her. Buffy LOVES MEN!!! She is also greawt with other animals, kids, and she is housebroken.
She drinks tons of water and wants to go outside to potty frequently. We suspect Cushings but haven’t tested for it because the treatment is as hard or harder on the body then the disease is and we are just letting Buffy get used to not having her dad. Buffy is a very sweet and happy girl that loves walks and being with her family!
For all contact info, please call 210-843-8326 or email to: email@example.com. This rescue can assist with transporting Buffy to a new home!!

Honey - Spring, TX
Meet Honey! She is an almost 9 yr old, 66 lb, female spayed Mastiff.
This is a courtesy post as Honey is a healthy senior as far as we know! This beauty we named Honey because she's just that sweet. She was on the euthanasia list at the local county shelter. How can that be? Not only is she sweet, she's gorgeous! She is laid back, very calm and loves attention. She gives kisses even when she barely knows you, that's how sweet she is.
Honey is perfect with dogs of all sizes and and types. She loves to play and does fine in any kind of household. Her only fault, but we can hardly blame her, is she's not a fan of cats. Totally understandable...not everyone is a cat lover! Honey walks well on a leash, is house-trained, up to date on all her vaccs, heartworm negative, spayed and microchipped. Won't you bring this sweetie home and give her the second chance she deserves?
For all information on Honey, please visit the rescue's website at www.hhpprescue.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Riffi - Houston, TX
Meet Riffi! He is a 4 yr old, 50 lb, male Staffie.
Oh sweet Riffi! Riffi was on the euthanasia list at an overcrowded shelter in Houston TX for severe mange, being underweight, and not being able to walk. In the nick of time, he was pulled from the list by a group of volunteers and placed in medical boarding at a clinic.
He has gained weight and recovered from his mange, but his inability to walk correctly appears to be neurological damage. He walks a little oddly and has no bowel control.
Those are the tough parts of Riffi. The more important part is that he's an angel on legs. He is loving life now that he's been given a chance and is such a friendly guy! He gets along with other dogs and loves absolutely everyone he meets, kids included.
Riffi has no adoption limitations but the south would be easiest. For the perfect home, he could go anywhere!
For all information, please email: or call 979-324-1503.
Max - The Woodlands, TX (1/1/20)
Meet Max! He is a 9 yr old, 109 lb, male Black Lab.
Oh poor sweet Max. Max was adopted from MCAS 8 years ago and returned last month. How sad that is for poor Max at a time when he really needs a loving home.
He has advanced testicular cancer, hip dysplasia, spinal fusion, and he is urine incontinent. In spite of all of these issues, Max just loves everyone, is great with other dogs, and loves to snuggle. Max will do anything for a treat. He is the floppiest, most huggable guy out there and he deserves to live out his days in a loving home.
For all information about Max, please email email@example.com. Max is available within Texas or within reasonable driving distance. Adoption fee is $40.
