Wheaten Terrier

3 years, 2 months
Small  |  Male

Houston, TX



Mowgli was found wandering around our neighborhood, abandoned by his “owner”. Mowgli is a very loving lap dog who is gentle with the person he bonds with, and can be very playful, but not overly hyper when he plays. He is not fond of kids, but does ok if he goes to them. Mowgli would do much better in a home without kids. He has been around our kids for the past 9 months and still nips at my girls when they approach him when he's resting or when he feels they have pet him too long He has to be properly introduced to people, but has been known to bark at them the next time he comes. However, if anyone approaches Mowgli, he will nip at them. He is perfectly content to be in my lap all day. He can be a barker when the doorbell rings or he hears people out side. He has let us know when people have been behind our house, but other than that, he's a quiet but happy baby.
Poor Mowgli is a male, and he is wary of men. Mowgli would do well with a single female who is seeking a loving lap dog who never seems to want to leave your lap, or with a couple who has no kids who will spoil him with the love and attention he so badly needed. So, if you know a mom or a grandma who is in need of a loving furbaby companion, little Mowgli is perfect For you! He loves to go on walks and we are working on house training him. He is crate trained. Please give Mowgli the loving home he deserves!

Please contact for more information about this dog. You can apply online by clicking on Application. Once your application is approved, we will schedule a meet and greet at one of our adoption events. Thank you for considering a rescue!

The adoption fee includes vet check, vaccinations, Bordetella, de-worming, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip. There is a an additional $12.99 fee for Home Again for a lifetime registration of the microchip. If adopting a puppy, the rabies and spay/neuter will be done at the same time by our vet once they are 4 months old and billed to us. There is a $50 deposit on all puppies that have not been fixed yet. Once you provide us with proof of spay/neuter and rabies, you will receive your deposit back or we can send you a receipt to deduct from your taxes as a donation. It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.
NOTE: In our bios, we provide information based on our volunteer's experience with a particular dog; such as temperament, training, and ability to get along with others.
AARF is a 501(c)3 Non Profit, all breed, no kill organization. Our group is always in need of donations in order to continue to give the needed medical care to our rescues. Adoption fees do not begin to cover all of the medical costs. Any donation, no matter how small is a big help and is greatly appreciated. Please help us to continue to help them. Thank you.
