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.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hello there! My name is Benny and I was just recently rescued by a wonderful couple who is fostering me. It seems like my former owner was not so nice to me and dropped me off in the streets to fend for myself, but like the smart puppy I am, I saw my fosters and followed them home. They had no choice, I mean look at these sweet face! I am great with people, but I am a little too strong for younger kids. I would love to be an only dog with an experienced owner who will take me to training class. My fosters tell everyone I'm a very smart boy, already potty trained and I'm a quick learner! I really love to fetch, and positive reinforcement is what I need the most! I'm a very sweet love bug who you will fall in love with once you meet me. I am heartworm negative, up to date with vaccines, microchipped and neutered. Adoption can be found at www.adorehouston.org! If you have any questions please contact us at info@adorehouston.org *NOTE* We are located in Houston, TX, but we do adopt to other states and Canada as well. Transport fee is determined by the dogs weight for the flight and the cost of the traveling kennel, and the fee includes: spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchip, and health certificate.

      Breed: Mutt

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Meet Sage! This sweet girl was a very smart street dog who was rescued by ADORE. We think the heart shape spot on her head is possibly from a chemical burn. One of our amazing fosters stepped up and is now spoiling her rotten. She is housetrained, and loves to sleep on the bed and in her own doggy bed. She gets along great with her foster siblings but is still scared of seeing other dogs while out on a walk and will bark at them. She would not do well at a doggy park, but would do great in a house with some fury companions. We are not sure how she is around kids or cats, but she may do well in a home with cats. Sage is ready for her forever home! Adoption applications can be found at www.adorehouston.org! If you have any questions please contact us at info@adorehouston.org

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Belgian Shepherd Malinois / Mixed (medium coat). Meet Harris! Harris was found dumped outside of a work building with his buddy (who has since been adopted). The vet found a microchip on both dogs but the owner refused to take them back. Harris is an extremely loyal guy who is looking for an owner to bond with. He is very smart and would make a great companion for an experienced dog owner. Since he is currently in a boarding facility, we are not 100% sure that he is completely house trained. We are still learning more about his personality but Harris would love to be in a home again with people who won't abandon him. Harris is heartworm negative, neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccinations.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Hey guys! My name is Lucky! I am a gorgeous lab mix looking for my forever home! I am such a friendly guy. I'm the sort of dog that people were thinking of when they coined the term "man's best friend"! As soon as I meet a new person, the first thing I want to do is say hello and get a nice rub behind the ears. People are so good at that sort of thing! I would love to meet someone that likes to play as much as I do. If you like going for walks, have you considered adopting a dog companion? Because I would be perfect for that job! I'm also really friendly with dogs and not bothered by cats. Can you say PERFECT? I am heartworm negative, up to date on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi! My name is Karma! I'm a super sweet Staffie looking for my forever home. I have a sad past that is sure to bring tears to your eyes. I had a great owner, and I love her and I THOUGHT she loved me too. We went on long walks together, and cuddled every night, but one day that all changed. She gave me away. When she dropped me off at my new home I sat there and waited for her, and cried for her. I knew this new home was not something to write home about. It wasn't love and safety. It was loud and scary and I wasn't always sure I was going to be able to eat. My new mom was addicted to drugs, and she seemed to forget about me more days than not. I was scared, and lonely and I wanted my old home back. My new mommy decided she didn't have time for me anymore, even though she wasn't spending any time with me. She was trying to sell me so she could get money for drugs. Somehow ADORE got involved and I became one of their family members. I don't want to make you sad with my past, I am all about love and happiness now. I'm a really cute girl and I have the biggest, best smile ever! I love to be scratched behind my ear and snuggled up with my people. I get along great with other dogs, and would love a new playmate. I am heartworm negative, up to date on vaccinations, and spayed. If you need some good karma, why not adopt a dog in need of some love, like me!?

You can read Goliath's article here --- http://www.houstonpress.com/news/some-a-hole-is-training-his-dog-to-attack-strays-in-clark-park-6749715 Hello! My name is Goliath! I used to have a very rough life. I was living on the streets of Houston just trying to live day to day. However, a mean man had another idea for me. He decided to bring his trained fighting dog to the park and allow him to fight all the strays. Unfortunately, I was one of his victims. This experience left me badly injured on my face, but luckily things have turned around for me! I was rescued by ADORE Houston and had all of my wounds tended to. Now, you can barely notice my scars, but I have a really cute droopy lip on one side. I am understandably timid around new people, but I am still a sweetheart once I get to know you. When I am comfortable and in my element, I like to jump around and play. I'm a very gentle soul and I would do fine in a house with cats. I even get along with other dogs! I don't have a mean bone in my body! I have had such a hard time, and now all I want is to relax with a loving family and spend the rest of my years being pampered. If you want to bring me into your home, please fill out an adoption application! I am heartworm negative, up to date on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped.

      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). Hi, my name is Jolie and I am an adorable English Bulldog mix. I was found with my dying puppy coming out of the woods, trying to get help but my little one didn't survive the night. It seems as though I was dumped in the woods and I stayed there, waiting for my owners to come back for me but when I had no other choice we made the journey to the nearest street. I had worms, sarcoptic mange, flea anemia and cuts from living in the woods. I am a sweet girl who knows commands and is good with other dogs. I was scared to go outside at the foster home, fearing I would get to go back inside but now I am going outside with the other dogs and have even been playing! Please help me find a home!
