ABOUT ME: I came to the SPCA of Texas after being terribly abused by someone. When I arrived, I had no idea that I had found a safe place- I was scared of people and didn't want them to come into my kennel. The vet diagnosed me with severe depression and it took me a bit of time to recover. Thankfully, the staff didn't give up on me and I have gained so much confidence since then!

FOSTER TESTIMONIAL: "Art's a cutie! He looks adorable when he's napping rolled up in a ball. He has a great smile when he's happy."

LIKES: Going outside! I love when the staff takes me to the play yard so that I can run and play with toys. I've never met a toy I didn't like! I also really love Pupperoni treats!

DREAM HOME: I would like a home with a private backyard where I can have some off leash "me time".

MY ADOPTER: Will be patient, loving, kind, and up for some fun! They'll give me all the love I was previously deprived of and understand my limitations.

DOGS/CATS: I'm a masterpiece so you only need one! My home should have no other animals.

KIDS: No thank you- I will need an adults only household.
