Hi! ...and thank you from the bottom of my heart for visiting my profile!  My name is Maple, and as you can see from my profile pictures, I LOVE TO SMILE.  I have one ear up - and one ear down.  My foster Mom says that makes me special.

My siblings and I were born into the Rescue after my pregnant Mom was discarded and abandoned at a soccer park.  Luckily, a very nice family took my Mom home and fostered her through AARF.  My foster family took very good care of her until I was born.  Did you see all of my adorable baby pictures?  Yup, I'm a cutie! 

I'm not very big - but my heart is gigantic .  I am a very loving girl with a delightful personality - I make my family laugh out loud daily with my silly expressions and clutsy moves.  My foster mom says that I'm bright and I learn quickly - especially when she has treats for me!  I'm learning basic commands - how to "sit", "shake", I walk well on a leash, and I have conquered potty training. 

Most days, you will find me following my foster mom around, playing in the yard with my foster family, going for walks, or napping on my bed.  I love to go for rides in the truck and I sit like a lady in the front seat.  I'm currently looking for a family who will give me lots of love and is ready for me to give all my love to them.  Is that you?  I sure hope so! 

Thanks again for stopping by! 

Love and kisses, Maple.

ADOPTION FEE:  The adoption fee includes vaccinations, bordetella, deworming, rabies, Microchip including a lifetime registration and spay/neuter.  

PUPPIES   Texas State law requires that we sterilize any animal adopted through this agency.     This will normally occur between 5 and 6 months at one of our approved veterinarians at the expense of the rescue.

Children under 8 years old  often are not a good match for our puppies and dogs.   In order to protect both, your child and our rescued dogs/puppies from harm, we seldom if ever adopt to families with young children.

Approval:  You will be notified via email once your application is approved.  Once notified, we will schedule a meet and greet at one of our approved locations.   Thank you for considering a rescue!

Puppies cannot be adopted outside of the Houston area until they are spay/neutered after they are 4 months old.

It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.

NOTE: In our bios, we provide information based on our volunteer's experience with a particular dog; such as temperament, training, and ability to get along with others.

AARF is a 501(c)3 Non Profit, all breed, no kill organization. Our group is always in need of donations in order to continue to give the needed medical care to our rescues. Adoption fees do not begin to cover all of the medical costs. Any donation , no matter how small is a big help and is greatly appreciated. Please help us to continue to help them. Thank you.
