Updated 11022022: HAPPY BIRTHDAY JEWEL! Everyone meet Jewel, a Plott Hound Mix. She also goes by Juju, although we hardly remember to call her that. We have had her for a week and she’s been pretty great. She’s been good with our 7 and 5 year old. She loves running around the back yard but can’t be left alone because she already tried to squeeze under the gate. If she gets muddy while in the backyard, she does really well letting us wipe her paws down before coming in. She doesn’t fight it she seems to enjoy it. She loves chewing on socks if you leave them on the ground. We are working on teaching her not to jump up on us or the couches. I think she is already catching on because she got herself off as soon as she got on it. Great job for just a weeks time. We are working on getting her fully house trained. She is 100% pad trained and has only had 3 accidents in this past week. We only used pads on day one so I say that she’s doing very well! She has only barked inside when she hears something outside the front door or when she wants to play. She seems to be unsure about new people at first until they show her love and then she is fine. Sometimes when you get near her to put on the leash she pees a little bit, so we will let her out in the backyard before we leash her. We took her trick or treating and she was great but happy to be home in her kennel afterward. She is so good in her kennel and sleeps all night! Woohoo!! She had fur siblings at her last foster and did very well, and was gentle with the little 3 lb fur sister. She loves to have her belly scratched. She loves to be loved on and all she really needs is a loving home and some more obedience training, which we are working on. I just want to mention like most dogs, she doesn’t like storms so you may need to cuddle a little during one.
ADOPTION FEE: The adoption fee includes vaccinations, bordetella, deworming, rabies, Microchip including a lifetime registration and spay/neuter.
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.
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!

The adoption fee includes vaccinations, Bordetella, de-worming, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip. There is a an additional $12.99 fee for Home Again for a lifetime registration of the microchip.
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.
