ABOUT ME: I'm a petite girl who was found as a stray! While I struggle in the shelter environment, going to a foster home has really helped me blossom. I've become a loving and affectionate dog who will politely hand you her paw for more love! I'm searching for a home with someone who understands that while I may not be the bravest of doggos, I am the sweetest!

DOGS: Oh boy do I love them! I've got a shepherd friend in foster and while I'm at the shelter I get to hangout with a staff member's heeler. I love to play and zoom! My friends here say that I'm always making them laugh with my antics.

LIKES: Romping around with other dogs and playing with toys! Sometimes I will play fetch with myself.

HOUSING: While a house with a yard would be best, I'm willing to try an apartment in a quiet area.

KIDS: They're adorable, but kids 12+ only. Bring everyone to meet me!

The SPCA of Texas completes rigorous medical and behavioral testing on every animal in our care. The organization fully discloses all known medical and/or behavioral conditions, including any incidents of biting or violent behavior toward a human, to all adopters and fosters. Despite the rigorous testing our veterinary and behavioral professionals conduct throughout every animal’s stay in our facilities, other new and/or unknown medical and/or behavioral conditions may manifest in any animal at any time. By adopting or fostering an animal from the SPCA of Texas, adopters and fosters acknowledge at the time of adoption or fostering that they may receive an animal with an undetected medical and/or behavioral condition and/or that a new medical and/or behavioral condition may appear at any time in the future. Any pet adopted from the SPCA of Texas can be returned to us at any time for any reason at no cost.
