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. Hi there, Mr. Hobbs here. Boy do I have a story to tell! I was on the street for a very long time, and it was rough. You can see by my scars and by my right ear that the street is a dangerous place for a dog like me. Four days before Christmas, I got picked up by the doggy police and taken to the county shelter. It was loud and scary, but I kept a stiff upper lip and used my puppy dog eyes to catch the attention of the shelter volunteers, who worked really hard to find a family to adopt me or a rescue to take me in. Right after Christmas, they found a family who said they wanted to adopt me, and I was so excited! But then, on New Year's Eve that family decided they didn't want me as their forever friend, and I was back to square one and living on borrowed time - most dogs don't get to stay in the shelter for 10 days before making their last long walk •%81Î But then a miracle happened! My foster mom came to get me on New Year's Eve when she heard I was no longer getting adopted, and now I'm a K-9 Angel! I got a bath and it felt SO good! I got my own crate, doggy bed and blanket, and I made two new friends, who are the resident dogs at my foster home. I like to play with them, sleep with them, and just hang out enjoying the warmth of being inside a home with a family instead of alone on the cold, scary street. And I learned that I really love squeaky toys and treats! I've also learned that I'm very curious of cats and don't like to leave them alone so I would do best in a home without cats. I'm very submissive with people and dogs, and so far I haven't shown my family if I can bark. I have learned how to use the doggy door (maybe I knew how? If I had a family, it was a long time ago, and I just can't remember). Anyway, I've not had any accidents in the house. Yay for me! There's more to my story that I'd love to tell you, and I really want to learn everything about you! Why don't you meet me at the K-9 Angels Rescue adoption center on Saturday or Sunday, and let's get to know each other. I'll be waiting patiently for you! Mr. Hobbs is a Male Basset Hound / American Bulldog Mix that we estimate to be around 3 years old and weighs 51 lbs. 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.
