Rosie's journey started when she wandered up to a school in the Northside area of Houston in mid September. She was very lethargic, bleeding, and hungry. She looked like she had puppies not too long ago but unfortunately, they were no where to be seen. Despite feeling unwell and alone, she let us put her head in our lap and wagged her tail any time we came to see her. Rosie stayed on campus the whole day then was taken to the vet where she underwent emergency surgery to treat the cause of her sickness. After about a week of recovery, she slowly came out of her shell. Now, Rosie is a happy, healthy, and goofy girl. She loves going on group walks, having a variety of chew toys, taking sun baths, nuzzling up to people, being outside (especially in the dirt) and playing with other dogs when she gets to know them. Rosie is house trained, leash trained, and friendly to new people she meets. We have a dog and a cat that she was unsure of at first but she now gets along with both. Rosie is so loyal, lovable, and I know that she would make a great addition to a loving family.

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.

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.
