Ally is a very special girl. I pulled her from a local shelter in SC and fostered her while she waited for her heart worm treatment. Ally was sweet and calm, loved affection and listened to commands. She went on to be fostered in two other homes while she received her 2 month treatment and was a beloved foster dog in each home. One even considered adopting her but chose to continue fostering for us. Ally headed north to her forever home and found a lovely couple who cared for her, provided exercise and did basic training with her. Sadly, Ally took the lead in the house and began resource guarding and claiming the couch as her own. Ally has been evaluated by our behaviorist as well as a trusted trainer who specializes in this area and we are happy to report that she just needs a leader (as all dogs do) who will give her boundaries and implement rules in the house. Fifteen minute training exercises will help Ally realize that she is not the head of the house. Ally is around two years old, 55lbs, crate-trained and housebroken and would prefer a home without children and an owner who will continue these exercises and bring her back to the submissive girl she innately is.

Velvet was about to be put 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. Velvet has been described as, "the perfect dog" who puts her paw on you when she is close-by and just wants to be a companion. She is a calm, loving girl who deserves a forever home! Located in SC.

He is working on his leash skills and will need to continue his greeting skills. This little guy is house-broken and crate-trained and is a gem! He is heart worm positive and has received his first HW injection. He will receive his remaining injections in late January. He can be adopted locally at anytime.

Steve is a LARGE 70lb 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 and needs a strong leader as he can be protective. Our trainer feels that he needs to continue to work on his fear which fuels the protective behavior. He will only be adopted out to a strong leader who will put in the work needed to give Steve the confidence to be welcoming to visitors. Located in TX.
