Chico is a super little kid who is as happy as he is cute. He loves to explore and walks well on a leash. Chico is house trained and crate trained. He is a little shepherd mix.
We aren't sure what his heritage is, but we know he is just a love bug!
Chico was hurt as a puppy and recently required hip replacement surgery. He just got the all clear from the vet and is good to go home. He will need about 30 days of slow walks to stretch out his muscles but will be a great companion to any family.
Puppies that are under 4 months old cannot be adopted outside of our Veterinary Service area. Please call for specific locations.
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.
Once your application is approved, we will schedule a meet and greet at one of our adoption events. 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.
