Posted Breed: Shepherd / Chow Chow / Mixed (long coat). Hi, my name is Bo, and I'm a handsome adult shepherd-chow mix boy with a lot to offer my new forever family. I'm wary of strangers, but once I'm past my initial shyness, I'll be your new best friend - loyal, loving and affectionate. I'm good on a leash, have good house manners, house and crate trained and I get along with other dogs. My foster says I'm very playful with my foster sister – lots of tug of war sessions with toys every day. I love to chase squirrels, rabbits and kitties, so I would not be good in a family with cats. My perfect forever home would be with an experienced dog family that doesn't have small children and would be able to continue my socialization with strangers and new situations. I'm a special needs dog since I've been diagnosed with hip dysplasia (common in GSD dogs). It is presently under control, but the family would need to keep my weight down and my exercise up and I'll have lots of good years ahead of me. Bo's adopter must reside in the immediate Houston/Galveston area and be at least 25 years of age. Adoption fee for Bo is $125. Adoptions are held on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Petco on Bay Area Boulevard. All dogs are heartworm tested, on Heartgard, fixed, vaccinated, dewormed and de-fleaed. All dogs are microchipped.

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.

      Twiggy

      rescue
      Breed: Rat Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Location: League City, TX
      Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Mixed. Twiggy is a happy, playful puppy. She is always excited to meet new people, children, other dogs and cats, and will lick you like crazy if you'll let her. She likes to chew on bones and sticks and play tug of war. She loves to chase squirrels and lizards. She is a fast runner and once caught a squirrel in her foster's back yard! She only got the squirrel's tail, but she was very proud of herself. She is smart and a quick learner! Twiggy enjoys training time and is learning to sit, look at me, leave it, drop it, stay; and play fetch. She keeps herself busy outside for a while, but also loves to lay at your feet and take a nap. She barks when someone comes to the door, she sees someone on a bike or motorcycle or when she is not allowed to meet a new dog while on a walk. She walks well on a leash, but sometimes she's not in the mood for a walk. She is not crate trained and currently sleeps on a bed with her favorite children (ages 7 and 9). Twiggy is less than a year old and weighs about 14 pounds and is almost there on the house training. Twiggy's perfect home is one where she would have considerate children and another dog to play with and a family that will allow her to be part of their daily activities. A cat would be fine if the cat would tolerate her playfulness. Please come to Petco on Saturday to meet Twiggy! Adopter for Twiggy must reside in the immediate Houston/Galveston area and be at least 25 years old. A home visit may be required prior to this dog going to any home. Adoption fee for Twiggy is $175.

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: League City, TX
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed. My name is Basil and my foster mom says I am the “Bomb.” She says I am the sweetest, smartest, best boy she’s fostered. I remind her of a lab personality and temperament but I’m just a miniature version. I attach very quickly and always keep my “people” in sight. She thinks I would do best as a second dog or a family where my “people” are home. I don’t like to be left alone as I am a very social guy. I love walks and walk very nicely on my leash. I have a doggy door to go outside and have not had any accidents as I have now been given free roam downstairs like my other dog siblings. She is really impressed with me and proud of how quick I catch onto things. I love kids too, sometimes I jump on them when I get excited but I am trying to learn sit. I’m still a puppy so may get into things here and there, but I try to be a good boy. If you want someone who will be a loyal, true companion come meet me!!! Adopter for Basil must reside in the immediate Houston/Galveston area and be at least 25 years old. A home visit may be required prior to this dog going to any home. Adoption Fee for Basil is $175.

      Location: League City, TX
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Mixed. Hi, I'm Donut, a female doxie mix. I'm between two and three years old, so I'm a young dog. I weigh about 12 pounds and have a great temperament - I'm outgoing and playful. I'm good with kids, dogs and cats, although I get afraid when one of the cats tries to swat at me. I was picked up as a stray so my new foster is just learning all about me but I do great on a leash and love to walk. My foster says I've had no accidents in the house so far and I'm very sweet. I know a few commands and I've been told I'm a real quick learner so that you can teach me all kinds of new tricks and commands. Please come see me at Petco on Sat, I bet you will agree about how great I am! Adopter for Donut must reside in the immediate Houston/Galveston area and be at least 25 years old. A home visit may be required prior to this dog going to any home.

      Breed: Boxer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Location: League City, TX
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Boxer / Mixed. Hi my name is Sadie. I am a sweet medium sized dog and am full grown. I am about a year old and weigh 41 pounds. I am house trained. I am very friendly with dogs and considerate children. I walk nicely on a leash and have already learned the sit command. I am good with children of all ages, but should probably go to a home with children 7 years or older. It would be fun to attend basic training classes with my new family, so you can help me learn new commands. It is important that my new family spends time with me and includes me in their evening activities. I am very social and thrive on being loved on and occasionally sitting on your lap for lots of love and attention. I'm looking for a family that has a secure backyard. Adopter for Sadie must reside in the immediate Houston/Galveston area and be at least 25 years old. A home visit may be required prior to this dog going to any home. Adoption fee for Sadie is $175.

      rescue
      Breed: Pointer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Location: League City, TX
      Posted Breed: Pointer / Mixed. Hi, I'm Snoopy, a really sweet, loving 30 pound, moderately active Pointer mix kinda guy. I'm still a pup at less than a year old, and my foster estimates my final weight to be about 45-50 pounds. I play well with other dogs, I'm not aggressive to cats, and will probably do well with older considerate kids since I'm going to be a big guy. I really like to be close to and touched by my people. I'm moderately active but am also content to lay down with a toy or a chewy. I'm really learning a lot of new things and love that 1 on 1 training I'm getting. I'm learning to walk on a leash, sit, down and come "here". I'm also learning my house manners. You will need to continue my training using patience and caring so that we can bond and be best friends. My foster says I crate well, but will occasionally sing the lonesome dog crate blues. I do quiet down once my adoring fans let me know how much my singing is appreciated (my foster calls it a correction). I love being with my family and being involved in all the family activities. Another canine companion would be great for when the family is busy with school and work. Please come see me on Saturday at Petco, I'm so ready for my forever home. Adopter for Snoopy must reside in the immediate Houston/Galveston area and be at least 25 years old. A home visit may be required prior to this dog going to any home. Adoption Fee for Snoopy is $175.
