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. Also, our puppies can only be adopted to the immediate Houston vicinity as it takes 4 months to get them completely vetted at our vet here in Houston. We will not allow our dogs/puppies to be adopted out of the area without being spayed/neutered. We spay/neuter puppies at 4 months old. Hello, world! Great to meet you. My name is Trooper and I love to play, chase squirrels and cats, eat, roughhouse with my brother, and sleep - not necessarily in that order. My brother Traveler and I are staying at this nice lady's home where we get to do all our favorite things and play with an older dog. There's a cat here, but she doesn't play with us. In fact, she's kinda mean so we stay away. My foster mom says I have a lot of Black Lab in me, but that I'm pretty calm for the breed. It doesn't mean I don't need exercise, but I'm not like one of those crazy ADHD dogs. I'm tall and lean and gorgeous. I'm much more independent than my brother, and I love settling alone in my crate for nap times. I'll go in there all by myself anytime I need a break. I'm getting pretty good at this potty training bit, but I still need some help. You see, I like to play, and sometimes I forget! But, I'm a quick learner, and I love treats, so I'll pretty much do anything you ask for one. I'd love to come home with your for the Holidays! Trooper is a Black Lab / Mastiff mix, estimated to be born around 9/8/2017. As of 12/20, he weighs 27 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 http://www.k-9angelsrescue.org/k9_angels_rescue_adoption_process.html. If your application is approved, a meeting can be arranged. Also, we only adopt young puppies locally due to the 4 month time frame 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: www.facebook.com/k9angelsrescue.
