Redford, aka Red, is a gorgeous and loving 1 1/2 year-old Chow mixed breed, who weighs about 60 lbs. He’s energetic, strong, and alert. Sometimes he’s even silly and goofy, like a puppy, when he sees something he hasn’t seen before! He does not tire easily, so he’ll need a home with humans who can exercise him and keep his active mind working. He’s a Very Confident, Independent Soul Who loves playing tug of war with his plush toys, and especially with towels.
Red is crate trained and house broken. He knows his name, as well as commands to sit, wait, drop it and leave it. He’s even learned some agility course commands, like jumping over a bar! Red has been receiving extensive training with our GRRH Trainer “Pete” for a few weeks, so his training will need to continue and be consistent, because he’s got a bit of a stubborn streak within him. He has shown dominance toward some dogs, but he’s also shown he can get along with other dogs. For this reason, we recommend a home where he’s the only dog. Food Aggression also needs to be addressed, but in an “only dog home environment” this should not be an issue. He’s improved his leash walking, though because of his strong prey drive, he still gets distracted by birds, squirrels, and other wildlife.
He’s always eager to greet you (we’re still working on not jumping). Once he’s had his exercise and play time, he loves to receive belly rubs and wants to be wherever his human is, giving you great big kisses, and resting his paws sweetly right on your feet. If you think you would like to Meet Red-please call our Hotline at (713) 521-9019 and leave your contact information so that we can return your call.
Tylen is currently located in Brazil, IN. He is a very beautiful dog however
he can be wary of strangers and is very fearful of men. With women and some men he usually barks at them at first, but will warm up after a little while, and is very sweet once comfortable with you. With some men however, he takes a very long time to get used to them.

Meet Stallone: this gorgeous Golden Retriever/Shepherd/Chow Mix (we think) came to us as an owner surrender just before he was headed to the pound. He had spend the majority of his previous life outside in a not-so-large yard and while he is quite people friendly and outgoing, he doesn't know a lot about house rules and polite leash walking and people greeting. He is very much a "Diamond in the rough with a little dirt on it", he is food motivated and learns quickly, but is also a little stubborn and single-minded: he LOVES squirrels - likely one of his few entertainments in his small yard. He gets along well with other dogs after proper introduction - due to his lack of knowledge of rules and manners he tends to be inappropriate and a little "humpy". He is reasonably polite when meeting other dogs but would much prefer to be the only dog in his home.
Stallone is looking for a moderately dog-experienced home without another dog in it, older kids may be fine. He has moderate exercise requirements and a good daily walk should suffice for him.
