Posted Breed: Shar Pei / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Houston, TX area: "Deakon" was found waiting in a wooded area for whoever dumped him to come back and pick him up. He was starving and in extremely bad shape. FPA has had this boy fully vetted and he has made a full recovery. He was born around 9-2013 and is extremely loving. He enjoys going for walks. He would be best as an "only pet" with a strong human leader. Deakon is a good boy and needs a chance at life, he truly deserves it.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Pearland, TX
      Posted Breed: Yellow Labrador Retriever / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Houston, TX area: “Ginger” is now available for adoption: “I have a confession. I can't hold my licker. I try, but my little body just overflows with love and happiness and I have to let it out. I am compelled to give kisses of gratitude to everyone in my path. You see, I had been struggling to survive on my own for quite a while. I endured a beating which broke my pelvis and injured my eye. I was literally starving to death. Don't feel sorry for me though because I am a very resilient little pup. A nice lady stopped to feed me. She knew I wouldn't survive another day on the mean streets of Houston and informed Forgotten Pet Advocates. Several volunteers went out searching for me, eventually giving me and a whole dog family our ride to a better life. I was rushed to the vet who said I would have only made it few more hours. I had been so hungry I ate rocks causing a fist-sized mass in my belly that needed to be removed. After a week I got to go home to my foster. She was surprised to meet such a happy, outgoing little pup. Even though my pelvis is healing, I get around with no problems or pain. I love to play with the other dogs in my foster home. I happily share my toys and treats. I love the children here, especially hiding under the little girl's bed to play peek-a-boo, making her giggle. I think the only sound I like better is the sound of the pantry door. Food, a soft fleece blanket, and lap to snuggle in are my favorite things. I am most likely a Chihuahua mix, but my foster calls me a "pocket Lab" because I look like a Lab in miniature. I have a laid-back, people pleasing personality. I weigh 14 pounds and the vet guesses I am 1-4 years old. I am crate trained. I am making excellent progress on housetraining and am starting to let my fosters know when I need out. I am spayed, up to date on my vaccinations, microchipped, and come with a year's supply of Heartguard. My adoption fee is $150. Please email forgottenpetadvocates@yahoo.com for more information. I can't wait to start my happily ever after with my own family, could it be yours?” Ginger's Photo Album: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1329041897111415.1073742469.379450892070525&type=3&uploaded=10 Ginger’s Story: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1293951353953803.1073742424.379450892070525&type=3

      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Golden Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Houston, TX area: "Madge" is in a kennel - waiting for a home of her own. You are not going to find a nicer dog than Madge, she is the complete package!! Madge is a sweet and smart dog who learns new things easily. She knows basic commands and has proven to have perfect potty manners at the dog spa where she stays. Madge gets along great with small dogs since that is what she is around most of the time. She can be a bit of a goof and over zealous when meeting bigger dogs but does adjust. Madge is a pretty easy gal to have around, as long as she gets long walks a couple of times a day; she is content just following her people around! Her one bad attribute, she's cat aggressive, not a good thing since her foster mom fosters lots of cats. This is the unfortunate reason that she must stay at the dog spa instead of getting to go home with her foster mom. Madge would love to have a real home with you! Madge is fully vetted. She was born around 5-13. Message or Email: forgottenpetadvocates@yahoo.com to meet this sweetie ! Madge is in the Pearland area.

      Location: Pearland, TX
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). COURTSEY POST: AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION HOUSTON, TX: "Cressida" came to us about a year ago with a horrible skin condition and a fractured rear leg. She is estimated to be about 2-3 years of age and is very healthy. She is extremely energetic and dog-selective. She pefers males of her size. Cats are tabooed. She would do best in a home with someone who is familiar with her breed and can deal with her energy level. She hates to be alone. Very social and her favourite hobby is eating and snuggling, and when I say snuggling, I mean ambushing and refusing to allow anyone to arise from a supine or sitting position. She is fully vetted and ready for a home of her own. If interested in meeting sweet Cressida please email Anne: thepawza@yahoo.com Cressida is in the Richmond area.

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Corgi / Mixed (short coat). Houston, TX area: SENIORS 'Noah and Tovah' are living at a vet clinic waiting for a home of their own. This bonded pair have been together all their life, living happy, til tragedy hit, when their human Daddy died unexpectedly. Everything they have known, has changed. These two are full of happy energy, especially when away from the kennel. Both of these precious siblings like to get to know strangers slowly. Noah and Tovah were raised with cats so they don't chase or otherwise harass them. When they see other dogs they don't bark or pull in their direction. Their Daddy always treated them more like his children than mere dogs. He called them 'his babies'. Noah is a distinguished little chap who enjoys taking time to get to know you. But once he does he will be your pal for every walk, couch sit, or hanging out in the backyard. He especially enjoys running around the yard with his sister, Tovah. He really misses his Dad and was a real Daddy's boy. Tovah is a happy, frisky girl, who is always ready for fun. Wearing her perpetual smile Tovah likes to people watching from a porch perch or a sprint round the yard. Both Noah and Tovah enjoy the outdoors, give kisses, and ride great in the car (backseat only). Noah usually stretches out to nap when I take them for a ride. They are 8 years old, around 20 lbs., the perfect sized dogs. Both are fully vetted and micro-chipped. Open your heart and your home to this BONDED SENIOR DUO.
