ABOUT ME: I came to the SPCA of Texas back in February as part of a case with a whole lot of other doggos. The world is new and scary, but I've made a lot of progress! I've discovered that the world also has many snacks and that's pretty awesome.

HOUSING: I require a house with a securely fenced yard and a calm and quiet environment.

DOGS: No thank you!

KIDS: Adults only, please. Every member of the household needs to meet me before I can go home.

SPECIAL NOTE: Eligible adopters get to take me on a test drive through trial adoption!

APPOINTMENT TYPE: Scheduled- please fill out an online application to meet me!
