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.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi, I'm Johnny Cash and I want to sing my way into your heart! I'm a lovable guy that likes to have fun! The dog park is one of my favorite places. I am a happy-go-lucky guy who gets along well with everyone and am very socialized. When I'm not practicing my next country hit, I like to sleep in my doggie bed, or curl up in someone's lap. I am intelligent and I learn quickly. In fact, I am a recent graduate of Basic Obedience Level 1 and I can sit, stay, and I’m working on learning to shake hands! I'm an active pup, so be ready to rock-n-roll. Yes, country and rock-n-roll CAN go together.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Border Collie / Mixed (short coat). Super sweet & super fun! Estimated date of birth is 1/1/16, weight is 45 lbs.

Sugar has a lot of energy and would love to go to a home with a big backyard for exercise, some older kids (teenagers on up) to run around with, and a nice soft, comfy dog bed all of her own.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). In her own words: I was saying to myself just this morning "Venus, you know what you need? You need a person all your own." So I sat down to write this post for the nice people at HOPE, because apparently that's the kind of thing they do - find nice people for extremely intelligent and lovable furbabies. I shudder to type this, but I'M LAPLESS! That's right, I have no lap to call my own. Could you be persuaded to volunteer yours? I can't wait to see my forever home!" Venus is an active and incredibly smart girl who likes nothing more than to stretch her legs at the beach or at the park. She'd suit an active person who wants an outgoing and friendly companion - if you ca lob a tennis ball, Venus will be your friend for life!

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Faith is the sweetest & cuddliest 4 year old girl! Rescued off the streets an injured stray, she has thrived living with her foster family and is fully potty trained, crate trained and also 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: snuggling with her foster parents on the couch, playing in the backyard with her foster dog siblings & kids, and going for walks around the neighborhood. She is VERY friendly with strangers and loves to meet new people! Her calm demeanor & sweet temperament in any situation makes her an outstanding candidate for therapy dog work.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Rottweiler / Mixed (medium coat). Meet Louie! We don’t know Louie's story before he was found on the street but we think he must have been in a home since he's so people oriented. He loves to show off his toys but he loves chewing and playing fetch with his Kong toys the most. Louie is good with other dogs but it’s best if the other dog is about the same size (large, about 80 lbs.) He is currently going through obedience training and is making good progress. He is very eager to please! He’s very compassionate and will follow you wherever you go.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Schnauzer / Mixed (medium coat). Date of birth is 11/9/17. Bob and his siblings, Boy and Jessie, were born to a stray moma dog that wandered up to a home out in the country, looking for food and shelter. Fortunately, she found a home with dog lovers who not only fed her and gave her shelter, but let her have her litter of puppies two weeks later and committed to finding them all homes! Bob is lovable, sweet, and chill. He can be playful, but mostly he is just a little love bug. His little bobbed tail will always tell you how happy he is to see you. He is learning to walk on leash, is almost house trained and is crate trained. Bob’s calm demeanor makes him a great choice for a relaxed family that wants a new best friend. He would also love to find a home with another dog for a playmate and a nice backyard for exercise.
