About Rocket

Meet Rocket! Rocket was one of the 28 dogs that were saved on the day they were set to be euthanized due to lack of space at a small kill shelter. Rocket is a very sweet and affectionate boy. He is estimated to be about 1-2 years old and now weighs about 70 lbs. He is great with other dogs, but needs a buddy that can keep up with him. He loves to run and play and we would recommend an active home. We think Rocket would be good with kids, but we have not tested him with cats yet. Rocket is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and heartworm positive. Adoption or foster applications can be found on our website www.adorehouston.org Email us at info@adorehouston.org with any further questions!

Meet Annie! Annie is a new addition to the Adore organization. She was saved by her foster family who found her on the street and gave her a safe place to stay. Here is what her foster mom has to say about her: "She is definitely housebroken and has pretty good manners inside. We've worked with her a little too. She loves attention and is not food aggressive; prefers attention to food as rewards. Loves a good belly rub and loves lounging on the futon. She would love more walks than we can give her. We have a cat that we keep separated from her. But they see each other and "Annie" the dog, mostly friendly whines when she sees her. She is pretty friendly. Daughter has taken her up to the boarding facility she works at a couple of times for a visit or grooming and she hasn't been a problem or aggressive. Walks on a leash eagerly. She is really, really funny, sweet and loves to learn (tricks and things). She has not been destructive but loves to chew and shred things, which we coordinate with appropriate stuff. She's about 55 lbs., and we think part German Shepherd and maybe Chow (she has black on her tongue). She doesn't like storms (if she is outside when one is brewing she wants to come in immediately) and she doesn't like other people's lawn equipment (edging and mowing). She loves playing in the sprinkler/hose. She really will make someone who want's a larger dog a great pet!" Annie is soon to be spayed and microchipped (will be before any home visit). She is up to date on vaccines and is heartworm positive. Don't worry, she will begin her treatment soon and at no cost to any adopter! Heartworms are not contagious, email us if you have anymore questions at info@adorehouston.org Adoption applications can be found on our website at www.adorehouston.org/adoption-application/ show less

Meet Cheyenne and Jake! Cheyenne has had a really rough past. She was originally bought from a breeder along with Jake the Yellow Labrador Retriever. They lived out in the country where their owner would leave them outside to fend for themselves. He would leave town for days at a time with no care for Jake or Cheyenne. They had litters of puppies together and Cheyenne was used for entertainment by the man...we do not want to think about that meaning. It has caused Cheyenne to have some anxiety, Jake helps her and is like her therapy dog. Jake and Cheyenne were then rescued, and lived a happy life indoors. Unfortunately, their adopter passed away, and they are once again searching for their forever home. They are currently in a foster home and are doing great. They are both 200% house trained and never go potty or chew things inside. Cheyenne loves attention and is a total sweetheart once she gets comfortable. They both walk well on a leash and enjoy couch time. Jake is your typical loving and sweet family Lab. He is big, but very gentle. They will be a perfect addition to any home. They do well with other dogs, and are great with kids. We have not seen them around cats. They are both spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and heartworm negative.

Meet Gunther! This poor bob-tailed German Shepherd Dog has been through more pain than we can imagine. Adore was contacted by a local shelter who asked us to take in an emergency dog that animal control just picked up. He was found as a stray with his tail DEGLOVED from an unknown cause. After we rushed him from the shelter to our vet, it was determined the best course of action would be to amputate the remainder of his tail. Gunther has since recovered from his horrific injury and he is so much happier. Unfortunately, we were not able to find him a foster and he is stuck in boarding. Gunther is a sweet boy, he is active but with some activity he does mellow out. He has been good with another female large dog in boarding, but he does seem to want to chase cats. We have not seen him with kids yet, but we think he will be good with older kids/teens. While we have not seen him in a home yet, he is very clean in his kennel. He is about 3.5 years old and weighs about 80 lbs. Gunther is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped, and heartworm positive due to being out on the streets. Don't worry, Adore pays for treatment and heartworms are not contagious to people or other animals!
