Posted Breed: Border Collie / Mixed (medium coat). Meet Bandit! This active little guy sure does catch everyone's eye. Poor Bandit was starved by his previous owners, they played a game where they would withhold food and water from him and now he has some slight resource guarding habits. He did great at our adoption event with about 30 kids ages 4-13 all petting him and giving him love. He rides great in the car but has some hesitation when he sees a car slowly drive by and will bark a few times until they pass. Bandit is crate trained, and we think will be an easy transition for him to be in a home, but for right now he is patiently waiting for his home at a boarding facility. Bandit is submissive with people and will crawl his way towards your lap, but is slightly dominant with other dogs and will try to get them to play with him. He is a gorgeous little guy who will make a great addition to your home! Adoption or foster applications can be found on our website at www.adorehouston.org If you have any questions please contact us at info@adorehouston.org

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.

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Hello! My name is Athena and I am a young adult American Staffordshire Terrier mix! Living on the streets in Houston isn't a great life for pups, and I am a great example of that. I was minding my own business when I saw a tasty piece of garbage on the ground. I decided to cross the street and in a blink of an eye I was hit by a motorcycle. Of course, the driver didn't stop, and I was trying to drag myself to safety. That's when I saw my angel. A nice lady saw me and helped me get to the curb. She got me to the vet, and they began to help me. Now, two leg surgeries later I am ready to go run and play again. I would make a great companion for a semi person because I love to run around and play with my toys, or lounge on the couch. I would be a great loving partner to travel with or to just be lazy with you. I am heartworm negative, up to date on vacciantions, spayed, and microchipped. Adoption or Foster applications can be found at www.adorehouston.org!

I am spayed, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped. Sadly, I am heartworm positive, but the nice people at ADORE told me that I am getting the treatment that I need to start feeling better.

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Hello! My name is Arrabella and I am a sweet 2 year old Shepherd mix. I was rescued by a great woman from a bad home situation. I was being neglected by my previous owners and my now foster took me away to care for me. Even though my owners didn't take good care of me, I still love people! While laying around I enjoy getting my belly rubbed and being petted. When I'm not lounging around, I like to play fetch and play with my toys! Overall I am a pretty awesome dog who deserves a pretty awesome home! I just graduated from a 3 month training program learning all kinds of neat things to show my new family. You will definitely be impressed with all my cool tricks. I learned leash walking, basic obedience, and socialization in public places just to name a few. I can promise you I will be on my best behavior with everything I learned, and am ready for my forever home. I am heartworm negative, up to date on vacciantions, spayed, and microchipped.

      Posted Breed: Shepherd. Once a swamp dog, now a house dog. Hello everyone, my name is Baxter! I am a 4 year old Plott Hound Mix, and I weigh about 65lbs. I was rescued from a pretty bad hoarding situation. I was living in a giant mud pit with absolutely no shelter. My food and water bowls had maggots in them, and it made me not want to eat. My owner tried to keep me warm with heating lights, but the cords were in standing water, and I am surprised I did not get electrocuted. I was up to my chest in mud and could hardly move. There was so much mud covering me when the nice people from ADORE saved me they thought I was solid black, but much to their surprise I was a gorgeous brindle dog with cute snips of white. When I first meet new people I am a little shy due to my past, but will warm up. I am crate trained and do very well in the house. I love dogs, and get along with all dogs and love to play with them. I also love people especially the ones that give me good pets. However, I would do best in a home without kids. I am heartworm negative, up to date on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped.

I was rescued from a kill shelter, literally moments before I was scheduled to be put to sleep. I went into labor when ADORE saved me and I had 12 puppies. they have all been adopted but now its my turn! I really would do best in a home by myself or with a submissive male as I am a dominant female. I love to pay but I am also calm in the house. My foster adores me but he really wants me to get a home of my own. If you would like to adopt this dog please fill out an application at www.adorehouston.org
