    Sandy is a 1 year old Shepherd/Terrier Blend weighing 20 pounds. She was rescued off the streets by a good Samaritan. Sandy, from the time she came in the group, was sweet, lovable and well behaved. She was thin and definitely needed attention. During her exam for surgery, it was noted she had a heart murmur.

She sleeps on the floor in her own bed and never move. She is not an early riser, so you can sleep in until you want to get up. She ... (Read More)is totally house broken. She loves the other dogs and loves to run and play with them. Cats are unknown. She would do very well with children, because of her quiet, gentle nature. Sandy is spayed, microchipped, vaccinations up to date, heartworm negative, and started on heartworm and flea/tick prevention. If interested please submit an application from this website. (Less)

    Sammy Sosa is about 2-3 years old. He is a medium sized (40 lbs) terrier mix male dog. He is very sweet and friendly but can be shy at first. Once he knows his human handlers and family he is very affectionate. Because he is shy at first it is not a good idea to have him around young children that could scare him.

Border Terrier Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Jessie was adopted and returned through no fault of her own. Her owner was just going through too hard of a time and could not take proper care of our sweet Jessie. So here she is, back in our rescue and ready for her real forever home. She is great with little dogs but is very fearful of bigger dogs, especially bigger than her. She has a bit of a prey drive so kitties, squirrels, rabbits are lot's of fun for Jessie. She could be about 7-8 but you would never know it. She has tons of spunk, loves to run and play but can also chill with you, on the couch while watching tv. She is a cuddle bug and also really loves getting her ears scratched. ... (Read More)She had heartworm and was treated with a slow kill method, which was better for her low positive result, so she will definitely need to be on Heartgard or something comparable, for the rest of her life. All dogs, especially in the south, should be on heartgard anyway, because the mosquito population is so strong here. Jessie is ready to go home now. She would love someone active who wants to take her on walks, she likes sit for treats and will literally cuddle all day long. Do you have room in your home for a sweet girl? If so, please email us now. (Less)

Border Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults

Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Lil Man is playful, friendly and learns fast. He is very lovable and responds to my commands. He loves to play, but loves to snuggle on the sofa too. He is a talker and almost has a conversation when he is trying to convince you of what he wants to do. He does the cutest things with those ears and his expressions just make you want to melt. You would not imagine this baby was found with 5 of his siblings, dump in a park. They were left in a cat carrier, covered in bug bites and almost dead. He has a super cute personality. LilMan is very smart and playful. I have brought in a trainer to start working on obedience. He is currently around ... (Read More)other dogs of all sizes and sexes, as well as cats. He will chase the cats, but it's really out of play and not to harm them. We are working on this. He should stay socialized with other dogs/cats and people of all types. He is an unknown mix, but has cattle dog markings underneath and is shorter legged. Lil Man also has a naturally docked tail. His sister looked very Boston Terrier, so that may be part of his lineage. Lil Man's adoption fee covers his shots, rabies, neutering and chip. Lil Man is available for adoption out of state, with adopter paying transportation fees. (Less)

    Freya was dumped by our rescue. She is now part of the pack, freshly spayed and vaccinated and a great young dog with high energy and the love of play. She has two buddies here that she plays with and needs stimulation either with a puppy buddy or human playmate. Freya is a bit on the dominant side and gets along well with dogs and cats but prefers to get her way. She is a tiny bundle of energy.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Border Terrier in Texas
    Border Terrier Dogs can make good pets in Texas if they match your IifestyIe. Border Terriers are spunky, lively little dogs. They are eager to please and very friendly. Border Terriers get along with children, other dogs, and will do okay with cats if they are raised alongside them from the time they are puppies. Border Terriers cannot be trusted with other small animals or unfamiliar cats. Border Terriers need a lot of attention and should not be left alone for long periods of time. If they need to be left alone during the day, it is helpful to have two Border Terriers, especially if one is male and one female. Fences should be reinforced at the base because Border Terriers are enthusiastic diggers. Border Terriers do fine living in an apartment or somewhere with a small yard, as long as they get enough exercise.
