Steve is a LARGE 60lb lab/dane mix who is packing on about 15 much-needed pounds after escaping death at Harris County Shelter in Houston. This is a shelter we pull from as much as possible because it fills up with black dogs and they are first to go down in Texas. Steve was given a little extra time because of his personality and demeanor which is illustrated in his video below. We believe he is about 2 years old, walks well on his no-pull leash and is crate-trained. He attaches to his person and would like a large couch to lie on. Steve is a low-key guy but is working on his jumping manners so no little kids. Steve is recovering from his neuter and we will have more details shortly. Located in TX. 


Velvet was about to down before Thanksgiving in a rural South Texas shelter. A volunteer (who was "ashamed" to be from a town that killed so many dogs) reached out to me and asked if we would take her because she is a special girl. Velvet is a black, 6/7 year old, 38lb female mix who is HW positive so she had 3 strikes against her. This girl  is kid-tested, loves to play with other dogs her own size or larger and loves her people. She would do best in a cat-free home. She will head north at the beginning of January. 

Bosco is a tiny pipsqueak of a pup who can kiss for hours! He is a mere 16lbs but we are packing on a few needed pounds to get him to his healthiest weight. His personality weighs 85lbs. Bosco is 1.5 years old, loves everyone he meets and plays like a professional puppy. This guy is full of character and even prances when he walks. He showers his humans with affection and even lies across your neck like a scarf to hug you. He is absolutely precious, very smart, learns quickly and knows basic commands. This little guy is house-broken and crate-trained and is a gem! He is heart worm positive and will receive his treatment late December here in SC. He can be adopted locally at anytime. 

Holiday Puppies

Holly, Cringle and Nicholas were born in a NC yard where they stayed outdoors with their mom for their first 8 weeks of life.  We were able to save these little fluffy puppies, whose mother looks to have spaniel in her (20lbs) and whose father is a retriever mix (50lbs). One female, two males, all under 6lbs and will arrive in CT around the 15th of December. They will need an adopter who is home during the day to give them the care this young age requires. They are great little puppies!





Stormy is a one-of-a-kind girl! At 40lbs, 2/3 years old and likely a collie mix, Stormy steals everyone's heart! She is well-trained, has great manners and walks well on a leash. She loves to run in the yard or at the dog park and plays beautifully with her friends. Stormy is a medium energy dog but very mellow in the home and loves a good nap on the couch. She isn't destructive, doesn't chew and is a turn-key dog! Stormy is kid-tested and will make any family LUCKY to have her. Located in CT.
