OUT OF STATE ADOPTIONS: We do allow out-of-state adoptions for ADULT 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 future furever family, I'm Thatcher. Yes, I am mostly Black Mouth Cur. Check out my breed description on Wikipedia ('well-muscled, rugged, great family dog, and extremely smart' able to 'pull weights, herd, track and run'). If all of those awesome facts are a bit difficult to remember, just think of me as a stone cold stud. My official name i s Thatcher, but my five-year-old foster sister calls me Basher. So, yes, I know that I am cool, but I am not full of myself. I started life in a nasty shelter and am very appreciative and tender with whoever loves on me. I like a good cuddle in bed, will follow you to the door when you are going out and will meet you there when you come home. I know basic commands 'sit' and 'down'. I don't bite when taking treats from hand and I won't chew up your house. Last week I was the star attraction at a school show-and-tell for young children. I was extremely well behaved and took treats from the hands of maybe 30 kids (after responding to either the sit or down command). The teachers loved me because I did not bark and I did not chew on anything, not even the homework! If you want a faithful, good-looking, whip-smart companion, come see me this weekend! Thatcher is male Black Mouth Cur / Pointer Mix with an estimated DOB 10/4/18 and now weighs almost 24 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.
