Murphy is a very smart boy and likes to have his mind occupied. I swear I can see the wheels turning in his mind sometimes! He eats like a gentleman to this day and takes treats nicely too. He can be a little shy and stubborn at times and doesn't seem to like young kids a whole lot. He is great with all his foster siblings and loves to run and play but can be a bit of a bull and plows through the crowd. He also loves to run beside you on a bicycle or would love to be your running partner to use up some of his energy.

Thanks for looking to adopt and not shop! THANK YOU FOR ""OPTING TO ADOPT""

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.

Fill out an application at http://www.krrtx.org/forms/ Adoption Fee: $170.00 Rusty oh Rusty - this boy has such an incredible story and I could probably write a book about his adventures. But I will save that for the lucky family that sees the potential and love this boy has to offer. He is about 1 1/2 years old, playful, funny, quirky, loves other dogs of all sizes and probably cats too. He doesn't discriminate - he just wants friends. He also likes to play in the swimming pool. In fact one friend was a concrete statue of a deer for 3 months (part of that adventure story!). Rusty is shy and a little unsure of humans. Even though he likes all dogs he does fancy the girls. With another friendly dog he will come up for his loves and then steps away. if you walk away from him he will come up behind you and bump you in the back of the leg or your rump. He is so funny! Rusty just needs consistency and reassurance that humans aren't scary. He is SMART too. Oh is this boy SMART (more on that story). Please consider giving this boy the live he deserves.

We are an animal rescue with the primary mission of saving dogs that have been dumped in the country or by the side of the road to fend for themselves. Fill out an application at http://www.krrtx.org/forms/ Adoption Fee: $170.00 Smiley is a smart, inquisitive, laid-back young man. He gets along great with other dogs but also does fine on his own. Smiley is housetrained and knows the doggy door. He was born to feral parents in the country and even though he has been raised in a home setting seems to keep some characteristics of his parents. He remains shy of strangers, for some strange reason, and children make him nervous (probably because they move so fast). Once familiar with you he is an absolute devoted love (treating him with ice cubes will win him over even faster). The transition will take time and patience but believe me, the rewards will be a lifetime of devoted love. Smiley will do best with older adults or no kids in the home so he can be fully dedicated to his parents. He is fully vetted, microchipped and house trainined. Please consider giving Smiley a home of his own. THANK YOU FOR ""OPTING TO ADOPT""

When she first came to rescue she was afraid of men young and old but seems to have overcome that fear over time as she realizes not everyone is mean. She Loves her foster dad now but it has taken time, patience and treats. Her color is absolutely amazing as are her eyes when she looks at you. She rides well in a car and is housetrained and uses a doggy door. She is up to date on everything and is just waiting for you to call her home. She is super smart and loves food and treats and training should be a breeze. Holly likes to play with other dogs and will alert when there is an intruder at the fence or front yard.

We are an animal rescue with the primary mission of saving dogs that have been dumped in the country or by the side of the road to fend for themselves. Fill out an application at http://www.krrtx.org/forms/ Adoption Fee: $170.00 Duke is a gentle big boy at approx 70lbs. He spins circles when he's happy and seems to be a calm happy boy. We have introduced him to other dogs and he's done fine as long as they are not overly active. He seems to get scared if there is too much commotion. He is very gentle to humans and simply wants to be with us. It appears he was on a tether most of this life and lived outside however he has recently started to come inside and is doing well with house training. Vizsla's learn fast and do VERY well with positive reinforcement. Duke would probably do best in a home with no small children. He is an incredible dog and would love a large yard to run in and family of his own that will allow him to be a part of the family. We think Duke may have survived distemper as a puppy and that is why he spins circles and has a quirky, but sweet, personality. He loves to bury his head between your legs or press his head in your chest if you are down on his level. Please open your house and your heart to him and apply at www.krrtx.org/forms THANK YOU FOR ""OPTING TO ADOPT""

He is house trained but has been in the kennel so may need a refresher, uses a doggy door and sleeps through the night without a problem. He also has no problem being crated. He loves to snuggle and to chew on things. He is happiest with chew toys, rawhides or old sheets and blankets to chew on. He gets along with all the other rescue dogs and has learned who not to mess with! Chaz needs some training and he is so eager to please if just given the time.

She was unloved and unwanted and had to live outside with minimal shelter and other large dogs. She is a sweet little dog but has the attitude of a big dog which she's had to have to survive - also typical of a chihuahua! She also had never been inside until she met us and now is a good little house dog and is house trained and will use a potty pad. Tiny is also missing an eye but that doesn't slow her down one bit! She has also lived around cats and should be fine with them. If you have a lap available she will be on it. She is an exceptional little dog with a ton of love to give. Tiny deserves to be loved as family member and live inside with her family. Are you ready to add a bouncy fun little girl to your home? Oh and she loves car rides too!

Fill out an application at http://www.krrtx.org/forms/ Adoption Fee: $170.00 Opie is a super special guy who is between 6-7 years old. He was living on the streets for at least 3 years in survival mode before he gave up and started staying on a kind persons front porch (they called the rescue for him). Despite all of this, he has a heart of gold. He is fully house trained, good in the crate, gets along with other dogs and tries to get the cats to be his friends... He is simply adorable and wants to love and be loved. Opie has an old injury to his front left paw and he keeps his weight off of it about 80% of the time. This does not stop him or slow him down. He has mastered the stairs and he even will jump around a little when super excited. He even went on a short walk recently and loved it. Opie wants you to know that he IS handsome and his fur in growing in so soft and dense. He says he loves to give kisses and likes treats. He is learning to sit like a good boy too! He also says he is learning to like car rides but big trucks are hard to get into because of his paw, however, that doesn't stop him from wanting to go with his foster mom every time she leaves the house. Opie is a true love who deserves a new lease on life in a fuever home where he will be loved. Please consider opening your home to this very deserving and kind boy. THANK YOU FOR ""OPTING TO ADOPT""

Fill out an application at http://www.krrtx.org/forms/ Adoption Fee: $170.00 Humphrey is a very special boy that needs a very special human to love him and take care of him. At some time Humphrey was shot and the bullet lodged in his spine causing him to be incontinent and walk a little funny. Then sometime after that he ended up with a pretty serious cut to his front leg. Talk about adding insult to injury! But he was saved and even made the local news. Money was raised to do surgery but it was discovered that the bullet is actually inside his spinal cord so it could not be removed. His front leg has healed just fine. So what does all this mean? He will have to wear a belly band for the rest of his life while indoors. His bladder can be expressed to reduce some dripping. His bowels are the same but he seems to go while sleeping at night. He is cute, funny, loving and wants to be loved like a normal fun loving little boy should be. He is affectionate as well and deserves as much love in return. Care is minimal overall and such a small thing in the big scheme of things. Please open your heart to this sweet boy. THANK YOU FOR ""OPTING TO ADOPT""

See Bonnie was living in a field next to a busy shopping center for over a year. She managed to dodge traffic and had several people leaving her food. In fact she was a bit plump upon rescue! She was initially in a foster home and did very well except she started to chase the cats so that didn't work. She has never had an accident inside and asks to go out and also knows how to use a doggy door. She lives with all the rescue dogs of all sizes and does great. Once Bonnie gets to know you she is a faithful companion. She does need a companion dog to help her with her shyness. She is now a love bug, plays, prances and dances when she is happy and is an overall great little gal. A little older kids would be best as small ones may scare her. Do you have it in your heart to give this sweet girl her furever home where she'll never have to fear being left in a field again? You honestly will not be disappointed. She amazes me more and more every day. THANK YOU FOR ""OPTING TO ADOPT""
