About Champ

Meet Champ and Rocco! Champ was found many years ago tied to a tree. Rocco was found starving and eating out of the trash to survive. While they were both found separately, they have been together since 2012. They were both adopted into the same home, unfortunately the family could no longer care for them. Champ is a beautiful German Shepherd who is about 9 years old and weighs about 85 lbs. He is a very sweet boy who walks well on a leash and is dog friendly. He has some skin issues that requires at least one medicated bath twice a month. His hips are in good shape and he does not have hip issues. Champ needs a proper introduction to new people and like any German Shepherd, he grows protective of his family. He is very bonded to Rocco and we will not consider adopting them out separately. Rocco is an (equally beautiful) American Bulldog who is about 8 years old and weighs 86 lbs. Rocco is the definition of sweetness! He will kiss your face whenever he can. He is an old soul that enjoys being around people. Rocco walks well on a leash and is very low energy. Rocco helps Champ build confidence and Champ is more at ease when Rocco is with him. They are both completely house trained, and crate trained. They are dog friendly, but have not interacted with cats yet. These boys are ready to live out the rest of their lives in a loving home. They are neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm negative.

Adele was found roaming the streets with Beatrice,another dog we rescued who was found with a jar on her head.These dogs have been thru so much sadness and pain. She is about 1.5 years old and is now in good health.She is a young girl and has so much life left in her. A sweet girl to the core, She rarely barks, never growls, and is tolerant of just about anything. She is still skittish and alert. She loves playing in the yard for hours at a time, is great on a leash, and her dog companions are still her "ride or die." She sleeps at the foot of the bed and likes to give kisses in the morning. She feels safe in her crate and will go there when she gets nervous or just to hang out, but if she sees you pull out a treat, she'll run there to wait for hers. She likes ear and belly scratches. She wants to When Adele was found she was extremely shy and afraid of human touch.But with lots of love and care she has come a long way. She is now more trusting of all humans and is doing very well in her foster home. She does well on a leash and is good with other dogs. She is house trained and is eager to please her humans. She has been thru so much and deserves a happy ending. We will be updating her with more pictures. Any further question scan be directed to info@adorehouston.org Adoption applications can be found on www.adorehouston.org . https://www.adorehouston.org/adoption-application/ Adoption fees include up to date vaccinations ,micro chip,rabies tag ,spay/neuter and complete health records. show less

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 Blake! Blake was found as a stray dog struggling to survive during Hurricane Harvey. He was taken to NRG arena with 700 other homeless dogs and ADORE volunteered to help out. Blake was micro chipped and had a family, unfortunately the owners refused to take him back and wanted someone else to have him. ADORE took him into their care as well as a group of others that were in need of saving. Blake is approximately 2-3 years old and about 60 lbs. He is sweet and easy going. He loves to smile and he does like to play with toys. He likes people and is not high energy. but he has been tested with a low energy female dog and did well. Since he is not in a foster home, we cannot confidently say he is house trained, but he is very clean in his kennel. Blake is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, micro chipped, and earthworm positive. Don’t worry, heart worms are NOT contagious to other dogs or people and ADORE pays for his treatment and any adopter/foster could keep him through that time! His treatment would consist of 2 vet visits (paid for by ADORE), keeping him crated during the day, and short leash walks for potty breaks for approximately 60 days.

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.

My name is Gilbert. Right after Hurricane Harvey, a woman found me in her backyard. I could barely stand up I was so beaten down. She took me to the doctor who said I was severely dehydrated and probably just crawled someplace safe to die alone. He gave me some fluids and medicine, all of my vaccinations. The nice lady gave me a bath. It didn’t look like anyone had ever really loved me or taken care of me. When I was brought inside, I just laid by the door, not understanding what it even meant to be allowed in someplace where it was soft and warm. I would rest quietly on the floor beside a bed or blanket, having no idea they were there for me and it would be okay for me to lie on them. I’m a very gentle soul. I make deep contented sounds and sighs when you hug me. I love toys like there’s no tomorrow. I even got to go to the beach one time! Who would have ever known such a miraculous place existed? I was ecstatic to be there. I’m about 10yrs old, and I would love a forever family who would love me, too, for the rest of my life. Um, about the belly band. I have Cushing’s Disease and sometimes I leak a little bit, but the belly band helps so much. And the doctors are working on getting this to stop with an antibiotic. Otherwise I’m potty trained and have nice indoor manners. I love other dogs and children, too. If you’d like to gave me your last name and your heart, please fill out an adoption application for me with team ADORE. Love you to the moon and back?? GILBERT show less

I was wandering around the gym parking lot, feeling down-on-my luck when I spotted him. I ran up to him with my tail wagging, looked up with my big brown eyes, and nuzzled his leg. Then I followed him to his car and jumped on in. Any place he could take me would be better than here. It was starting to get cold and I was hungry. This was the start of my rescue story. I wasn’t the prettiest. My body had seen better days. My girlish figure was all gone – you could see all of my ribs sticking out! I had spots of missing fur all over my body. Pesky ringworms. It’s hard to keep those guys away when you’re living on the street. Look at the “Before” first picture of me… I am embarrassed! I am glad that he noticed my beautiful spirit, eyes, and temperament and took a chance on a gal like me. I got taken to a nice vet to fix me all up. Besides the ring-worm, he found out I was suffering from the dreaded Heartworms. Before treating the heartworms, I wanted to get spayed so that I could try to find a forever home. Unfortunately, I had one more hurdle to overcome on my story. While waking up from surgery, I suffered from a pulmonary embolism (due to a heartworm dislodging). Luckily the nice vet was able to save me! This video was taken the same day that I flat-lined and came back to life. As you can see I am a happy go lucky girl that doesn’t let any obstacles slow me down. All I want is a human of my own to love on. I have completed my heartworm treatment, healthy, and ready to go to my forever home! I am a goofy clown who loves making you laugh. I love to smile and wag my tail constantly. I try to be really good and listen to my foster parents. I always sit for my food and to go out on the leash. I am working on potty training. I am dog friendly but have not yet been tested on cats or children. Despite all of my positive qualities, I know I may look scary to some people. I promise I am not scary! I love all people and want to be best friends with any new person I meet. I promise if you give a girl like me a chance, I will be your best friend forever. I want a family of my own – please give me a chance! I am up to date on vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. show less
