Meet Buddy! He is a 6-year-old lab mix who was left to fend for himself after his previous owner passed away. He roamed Spring Branch for about a month before he was finally picked up and taken to a shelter. Once at the shelter, neighbors in Spring Branch rallied to network him and raise funds to get him safe and give him the life he deserves.

Now, Buddy is getting to experience a comfy lifestyle! He is a sensitive and sweet boy who occasionally has spurts of energy that showcase his playful personality. Buddy enjoys being outside and likes long walks. He also likes to play and run around with his foster dog siblings in the yard, but is mostly content to sit on the back deck next to his foster humans. Inside, Buddy has discovered the luxury and comfort of dog beds (and human beds) and is quite the sleepy couch potato. After a long evening walk, he plops down on the dog bed in the living room while his foster humans unwind and watch TV before bed.

Buddy is well-mannered and is slowly learning basic commands, such as sit and laydown. He is a large-sized dog and weighs just over 70 pounds. He likes being part of his foster dog pack, but is independent and will do okay in a forever home without a dog sibling. He does not do well with other species, though, so no cat siblings or other animals for him. He has not been tested with children.

Hello, I'm Danielle!

< Return to listings

My name is Danielle, but my foster family calls me Dani for short. I’m a Shepherd mix who is estimated to be 6 years old.

I have shown my foster family that I know how to sit and shake and how much I love to just lay around. They keep saying I am a chill dog, but I don’t think I am that cold. :) In fact, I am very warm and loving. I love to greet everyone with my whole body shaking and give lots of kisses to my human foster siblings and foster mama. I will enter my crate and lay down when asked to do so, and I go there throughout the day if I want to be alone.

I love the bones my foster family gives me; when my foster brother growls at me for my bone, I will give it to him and go find another one, even though he is about a third my size.

I like to be outside with my other foster brothers and sister just lay on the porch and enjoy the fresh air. I always let my foster family know when I need to go outside, and I haven’t had any accidents in their house. I did have one at the vet office, though; I figured they would need the sample anyway. :)

I am learning the leash and my foster dad says I like to smell EVERY smell on a walk. I have discovered the family cats and though I haven’t decided fully what they are, I sniff them when they are on the stairs and chase them when they run from me; not sure what I will do if I ever catch one since they like to smack me on my nose when I am sniffing them.

This boy is so laid back. He is afraid of some things, but is showing improvement. If you try to pet his head, he ducks. When he is eating, he is vigilant and looks around. However, he is not food-aggressive at all. You can take his food from him with no problem.

Spartacus is working on house training. He likes to come inside the home when his foster mom is cooking or cleaning the kitchen, and he sits or lies right next to her. He is kennel trained. He likes to ride in the truck, and he walks well on a leash.

She thrives on having another dog around and would do best in a home that has another friendly dog for her to play with. She’s very food-motivated and knows her name. Because she was on the streets for so long her potty training isn’t 100% yet, but she’s getting there!

  • Heartworm Status: Neg

< Return to listings

Hi, I’m Merry, and I live up to my name! I'm a two-year old perennially sweet, happy girl. I was found at Christmas but I had a rough holiday, giving birth to a stillborn litter. Now that I am feeling better, I have energy to go on walks, chase squirrels in the backyard, chew on stuffed animals, and play fetch with tennis balls. But I also love to snuggle, get belly rubs, and just hang out near my people. At around 40 lbs, my foster mom says I'm just the right size.

I like to play with other dogs, especially if they aren’t too hyper. I’m a little too interested in my cat foster siblings, but my foster mom says that’s because I’m a natural herder. I’ve met kids a few times and we get along pretty well because I am gentle (although I might be prone to herding the littlest ones). Can I come home with you and make your life a little merrier?

I’m also house-trained and crate-trained.

Penny likes to play with her foster siblings, go on walks, be outside, and hang out with her family. She can be shy but will adapt to the energy/activity level in your household and gain confidence from her furry siblings.

Fred | Dog - Male

Hello, I'm Fred!

 

  • Species: Dog

  • Breed: Maltese, poodle mix

  • Age: 6-12 months

  • Gender: Male

  • Size: 9 pounds

  • Color: White

  • Heartworm Status: Negative

< Return to listings

Fred is the silliest pup you’ll ever meet. He is between 6-12 months old and weighs 9 pounds. When he was found, he was very insecure, skittish and afraid but when he figured out he was off the streets and living safely in a real house, he found his happy, silly self.

He follows his foster mom all day long just to be in the same room with her. He absolutely looooves bully sticks and going to the dog park to run with other small dogs.

He had to learn to wear a harness and walk on a leash, but he is doing very well now, as long as it’s a relaxed process. He’s only 90% sure so far that the harness won’t bite him, but we think he will soon realize he can trust the harness completely.

  • Species: Dog

< Return to listings

Hello, they call me Chico. I am a whopping 8 pounds of fun. The vet thinks I am about a year old.

I love playing with my doggy foster siblings, and I am very interested in all the kids who come over to play. I earn my keep by protecting the yard and home from all invaders – especially those pesky squirrels running along the fence and tree tops. I am working on my doggy door mastery and I am crate-trained.

I like my cozy little space and warm blankets. Oh and toys.. I love toys… fluffy ones, squeaky ones, bouncy ones.. just all of them. Still trying to figure out how to tell which ones are for me and which was are for my humans.

I am a bit skittish around new people – it was a rough road to get here. I spent weeks on the street fending for myself. But I am awfully thankful for my foster mom and her son. I try to show them with all the snuggles and kisses they can handle. I think I would do best in a home with other pups who could show me the ropes. And also to have playmates. I love a good game of chase and tug-o-war. When I tucker out, I just need a quick nap and I can go at it again.

I like kids as long as they are not too wild… I prefer to be the wild one. I am working on my basic commands, but I totally understand when you tell me to go to my crate.

Daisy | Dog - Female

Hello, I'm Daisy!

 

  • Species: Dog

  • Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier mix

  • Age: 4 years

  • Gender: Female

  • Size: 35 lbs

  • Color: Blue gray

  • Heartworm Status: Negative

< Return to listings

Daisy is a sweet, sweet, sweet 4-year-old dog who was found on the streets. She is a small but strong 37 pounds. She is very loving and likes to be around people; after a few weeks in her foster home, she has figured out how to snuggle and enjoys being close!

Daisy is doing great with potty training and had no trouble getting used to her crate, where she eats meals and sleeps soundly. When her fosters are at work, she passes the time in her crate with a peanut butter-filled Kong and some long, delightful naps.

She enjoys long walks on her leash and was very quick to figure out polite leash walking. She has (mostly) learned her name and was quick to pick up "sit." She's now working on "down" and "stay." She adjusted quickly to the resident dog and would enjoy having an active dog friend with whom to play. (Her foster sister is 12 years old and not very interested in playing!) She hasn't met any kids yet, but she's been very sweet and calm towards all people she's encountered. A cat-free home would suit her best.

Daisy was successfully treated for an ear infection and flea allergies that caused her to be really itchy and scratch patches of fur off her skin. She is now flea-free, and now that most of her fur has grown in, her pretty exterior matches her lovely personality! This little beauty will make a great addition to someone's home!

Geoffrey was found as a stray, but he's trying really hard to learn house manners. He does well in a crate, loves other dogs, and couldn't give a hoot if there's a cat around. If you need some happiness, look no further. It's hard to look at this guy and not smile.
