ABOUT ME: I came to the SPCA of Texas after being mistreated. 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 staff described me as very depressed and it took me a bit of time to recover. Thankfully, the staff didn't give up on my and I have gained so much confidence since then!

LIKES: Going outside! I love when the staff takes me to the play yard so that I can play with my big, red ball. My ball is my favorite toy of all time. I also really love Pupperoni treats!

HOUSING: Due to my past, I still have fearful tendencies. Due to this, I firmly require a house with a securely fenced in yard.

MY ADOPTER: Will be patient, loving, and kind. They'll give me all the love I was previously deprived of and work with me on my basic obiedience training as I have become a bit jumpy/mouthy as I have gained confidence. They will spend lots of time playing with me and give me lots of oppurtunities for exercise!

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

Special Note: Potential adopters get to take me on a test drive through a trial adoption!
