Update 4/8/2020:  Covid19 is boring!  Mom and Dd sit at home at their computers all day long.  I thought when they were home it was play time but they say they have to work.  I am so proud of myself, and so are my fosters, as I walk like a really good boy now on a leash.  Sure, I pull a little when I see a squirrel (it's a squirrel Mom) but otherwise I do really well.  Car rides are fun and baths are OK- not my favorite but I like to be rubbed on so it works.  I sure hope someone decides to make me their furever boy soon.

Update 2.19.20:  Did we tell you that I snore!  Sometimes I snore so loud my foster parents can't hear the TV.  Maybe I am just feel so safe in the home I am just relaxed. 

I love to run and play.  I am getting better on not pulling (much :) ) when we go for walks.  I took a trip to the pet store the other day to get a new harness.  I was the best dog there.  I sat and listened to what I was told.  I got a cookie when we left for having such great manners.

Duke is an awesome dog.  Previous vet guessed him at 5/6 years old but he acts more like a 2/3 year old.  He loves to play fetch, tug-a-war (he always wins) chase with the other dogs and being loved on.  If allowed, he would climb his 51 lbs up in your lap for a nap.  We are working on his walking on a leash without pulling and he is anxious to please.

Duke needs a loving family he can be a part of.  He came out of his shell once he was brought home.

Please contact for more information about this dog. You can apply online by clicking on Application .

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!

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.
