Also known as Pop Tart, Pop Star, Pop Rocks, Popsicle, K-Pop, Pop Pop, Popcorn....this petite girl is about 40lbs and approx 5 years old. Isn’t she gorgeous?? Poppy was found as a stray, so we don’t know her history. She shut down at the shelter and when she had to be temporarily boarded, but once we got her into a foster home, she has really come out of her shell and shown her lovely personality. She is a little timid and jumpy, a wee-bit head shy but is improving, and is slow to warm up - also known as being a typical chow. We do recommend that she be the only princess in the house. She is house trained, enjoys walks but has a high prey drive for squirrels, stray cats and raccoons. When you have earned her trust she will let you rub her tummy. She takes treats gently and knows “sit”. Poppy is being fostered in Willis (just north of Houston).
Brisket is about 7 years old, weighs about 37 lbs, and is just as cute as can be. He is getting along well with his foster’s other dogs and loves to follow his foster mom and dad around in the yard. He has not been cat or kid tested yet as we are giving him time to settle in. Brisket is being fostered in Houston.
Milo is about 2 years old and 55lbs. Milo is a happy boy who is basically a young, high energy puppy in the body of a 50+lb adult dog. He has been working hard with our behaviorist to learn manners, and he has come such a long way! Milo is super smart and responds very well to commands. He is a high energy boy who requires lots of physical and mental stimulation, so an active family with no small children would be ideal. No cats for this silly boy, either! Milo will need a savvy owner who can dedicate time, structure, and patience toward helping him be the best dog he can be. He is being fostered about a half hour north of Houston.
This handsome guy is about 1.5 years old and came to us as a stray. It’s clear that Robbie was not socialized properly as a pup. He gets very overstimulated when meeting people for the first time and can be a bit intimidating while doing so. Once you get past the initial meeting and he learns you are safe, Robbie is such a wonderful dog. He loves to run and play and get pets! He is a fence fighter, another sign of overstimulation - meaning he tends to run up and down the fence or other boundary marker barking at passers by. He would do best in a calm, Chow savvy home with structure, continued training, consistency, and no children. Robbie is being fostered about a half hour north of Houston. Robbie must go to an adopter who is able to come in person for multiple meet and greets prior to adoption.
Athena was found as a stray wandering the streets of Houston. She was severely underweight with a nasty skin infection when we scooped her up. She came to us not knowing how to go potty anywhere but the inside of her crate. With a lot of love and work from our behaviorist, she has finally figured how to go outside and keep her crate clean! Athena is approximately 11 months old, 45lbs, and obviously has had no socialization prior to now. She does have some food aggression tendencies with people, which makes sense since she was starved when we got her. She is getting a lot of work and attention and will need an adopter to continue her training and socialization. NO young children. Athena is learning how to play well with other dogs and would do well with a confident friend.
