Rescue Me ID: 17-01-11-00178Harlee (female)

Border Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I'm Harlee, and if you are looking for a dog that will be easy to assimilate into your home and family, then I am it! I am mellow and sweet. I like belly rubs and pats on the head. Although folks don't know much about my life before ending up in the shelter, I definitely was an indoor dog at some point. I have been a wonderful guest in my foster family's home, and am proud of the fact t hat my foster mom lets me be unsupervised. I haven't chewed anything besides the yummy rawhide treats that my foster mom dishes out. I haven't had any accidents in the house, and have asked to go out when it has been awhile since someone took me to the grass. ... (Read More)I sleep happily in the crate or on the comfy dog bed. My foster mom asked me to sit and I did it on the first command!!! I really like the other little playful dog that lives here, although I don't pester her non-stop to play. We chase each other around the yard a little, and then we come inside to rest. I am not a piggy at the food bowl. Nevertheless, I love a special treat of having a bit of canned dog food mixed in with my breakfast or dinner. I was so grateful for the quiet, warm foster home after spending a long time at the shelter. I had a nice warm bath which got rid of the fleas in my fur from when I was living on the streets. My wiry, Schnauzer-like fur is growing back in some spots. My ears may look like they are a size too small for me, but they are very soft and I like it when someone rubs them. I am a really cute, easy-going mutt and will be a great companion to my furever family. You can fill out an application for her now because a sweet, trainable, playful dog who loves people and dogs won't be on the market for long! Harlee is a female terrier mix that we estimate is about a year old and weighs approximately 35 pounds. PUPPIES: Young puppies that have not had their second round of puppy shots will not be at the Adoption Center for our weekend adoption events. If you are interested in adopting a puppy, please fill out an application on our website If your application is approved, a meeting can be arranged. Also, we only adopt young puppies locally due to the 4 month timeframe it takes to get them fully vetted and altered. OUT OF STATE ADOPTIONS: We do allow out-of-state adoptions for dogs, however, the adopter MUST come to Houston to get the dog and take the dog home with them. We do not allow our dogs to be shipped. However, we only adopt young puppies locally, due to the 4 month timeframe it takes to get them fully vetted and altered. SPAY/NEUTER: As we believe proper healthcare of one's pet is a requirement of good ownership K-9 Angels Rescue only adopts out dogs that have been fully vetted. If the dog being adopted is not already altered at the time of their adoption, the dog will be altered within 2 weeks of adoption at our vet at our cost, with the exception of puppies which will be altered as soon as the puppy is ready. NOTE: All dogs are officially the property of K-9 Angels Rescue until they are altered by our veterinarian. Please LIKE and share our Facebook page: Thank you! (Less)

    Hi, I'm Fiona and looking forward to meeting you and my furever home! I'm a sweet and gentle loving girl and mom currently to 5 pups who are almost weaned. Now it's time for me to be taken care of! I arrive on the rescue homestead after being transported 1/2/17 by some very nice volunteer pilots and will be settling in and socializing with the resident and other rescue pups and 7 kids. Won't that be fun after I get my professional bath and groom from another nice volunteer! I can be transported also for the right family out of state! I love adventurers, am good with dogs and kids and am very affectionate. I will be spayed 1/10/17 and can go ... (Read More)home after that! ~Love, Fiona (Less)

Border Terrier Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Billy was dumped at a high kill shelter by his previous owner. He was suffering from a severe case of non-contagious mange, had no hair on part of his back from a terrible flea allergy, and he had a large tumor hanging off his back side. Since coming into a loving foster home, all of his health conditions have been remedied, (the tumor surgically removed) - (it was benign) and had his teeth cleaned. I promised Billy that he would never spend one more day of his life as anything but a much loved and pampered member of a family. Billy deserves nothing less than a warm, cozy bed, a nice fenced yard to lounge about and all the good food and ... (Read More)treats he loves. Billy is very quiet and sleeps most of the day in his bed, although he does like to take naps in the sun. He would do best in a home without a lot of commotion and noisy children. He likes women more than men, although he is not afraid of men. After all he was made to suffer at the hands of his previous uncaring owner, Billy deserves the best. If you can offer this precious, loyal companion what he needs, please contact me for an application. (Less)

    Pancho is a 2 year old guy that wants nothing more than to be loved! He came into the shelter, and was deemed unsocial because he was afraid. He's a little guy, weighing under 10 lbs.. If you were that little and ended up in a shelter, you'd be scared too, right? Well, once he came out of the shelter, his little personality blossomed! He will make a great little lap dog for some lucky person!! If interested in meeting Pancho, go to and fill out the adoption application on the home page.

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.
