Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Turtle is ready to give up her career as a back yard junk dog! It's time to start something new, and HOPE Rescue in Houston is ready to help her. Turtle has many skills that will make her new career as an adopted pooch a breeze! For example, she has plenty of playgroup experience, and she excels at zooming around the yard. However, she also enjoys just sitting in the yard bird watching or watching the squirrels playing in the trees. She also has wonderful people skills. Turtle's specialties are snuggling, smiling and making human hearts grow three sizes. Turtle's favorite past time is just lying on the couch with her human & watching TV. Can you help Turtle start her new career as an adopted member of your loving family? If you are interested in Turtle and would like to fill out a Dog Adoption Application, please go to: http://www.homelesspets.net/adoption-forms/dog-adoption.php . Submitting an application does not obligate you to adopt from us but it initiates contact with us and gets the process started. If you have questions prior to filling out the application, email us at hope@homelesspets.net and a volunteer will get back to you.

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.

      Faith

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier (short coat). Faith is a super sweet and cuddly girl! She was rescued off the streets of Houston as a stray in very bad health from being used as a bait dog. It was a long road to recovery for this precious pup but she is now healed, healthy and ready for her very own family. She is still growing in some hair on her face and body due to the illnesses she had when she was rescued in September. The scars she was left with on her body are forever reminders of the cruel life she endured but has left behind forever. Faith is estimated to be about 4 years old, is potty trained and crate trained. She is trusted to roam her foster parent's house all the time where she lounges on the sofa taking long naps. Her favorite activities include cuddling with her foster parents on the couch, playing in the backyard with her foster dog siblings, squeaky toys and going for walks around the neighborhood. She is very friendly with strangers and loves to meet new people. Faith would do best in a home where she has a canine companion to wrestle with and a family that will continue to shower this sweetheart with the kindness and love she never had as a street pup. She is wonderful with children but would do best in a home with older children due to her breed's physical strength and size. Faith is not good with cats but shares her foster home now with dogs of all sizes ranging from Rottweiler to a Mini Schnauzer.

      Posted Breed: Basset Hound / Mixed (medium coat). I am a gorgeous, friendly, energetic and unique fella. For a while, I was a solitary kind of guy with no family, just checking things out on my own and taking it easy. Then one night I had a run in with a UPS truck. He won and that’s how I became unique: I am now a tri-pod. My foster mom took me in, got me all fixed up, I learned to get by with just three legs and I am doing awesome! I LOVE to run, play and enjoy my new life completely. The only thing that would make it better would be to have a forever home of my own, hopefully with a canine sibling or two that I can play with; no cats please. I currently live with two older brothers but they don’t play very much and I get bored. I love to cuddle up next to my person on the couch, I’ll take all the tummy rubs I can get, and I even give kisses. I am crate trained and trained for a doggy door, walk on leash, but pull a bit. I love to chew on bones, toys, and I will chase a ball, but might not bring it back. I would love to be your awesome tri-pod ‘cause we don’t need no stinkin’ 4 legs !!!! Approx. DOB: Jan. 2014.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Estimated date of birth is 10/28/15, weight is about 55 lbs. Meet Nina! She is sweet, kind, and quiet for the most part with incredible eyes and an infectious smile. She loves her daily walks and is an accomplished jogger. In the evenings she loves to snuggle up with some pillows and just lounge. She is docile around the house and has no desire to chew or destroy. But don't let that calm demeanor fool you- Nina is also a huntress in the wild! Her current mission is to catch a fish while swimming in the local pond. She also LOVES car rides, especially when she gets to stick her head out the window. While she enjoys the occasional trip to the dog park (and is fine with other dogs), she mostly seems to enjoy the company of humans (of all ages!). Basically, she's just about perfect. Unfortunately, she cannot stay forever at her foster home as the resident cats keep her on edge. Nina needs to find a home without cats or small dogs. If you are interested in Nina and would like to fill out a Dog Adoption Application, please go to: http://www.homelesspets.net/adoption-forms/dog-adoption.php .
