AMARETTO – I’VE BEEN ADOPTED!!!

Posted in Uncategorized at 6:41 pm by Administrator

Rhett 3.jpg

My name is Amaretto, but I prefer to be called Rhett.  My foster mom started calling me that because she thinks that I am as good looking and debonair as Rhett Butler!!!  I think that’s pretty cool for I am truly one very handsome 5-6 year old beige and white Shih Tzu boy.  I was at the local animal shelter before I came into foster care so I also consider myself to be VERY lucky!!  I now have a great foster home with great foster siblings to play with and I hope someday soon to live in my forever home.

I had a bit of a rough beginning when I came into foster care as I had a broken jaw that needed to be fixed.  I had the surgery to correct my jaw and now I am happy and healthy.  I have the cutest little lopsided smile as a result of my surgery!!  I do have to be careful of the kind of food I eat and also the kind of toys I play with.  Other than that, I have no restrictions.   My foster mom says that I have a great attitude considering all I have been through.  She even calls me her best and favorite foster boy!!  Don’t let my foster siblings hear that!!!

I’m a good walker and love to go for walks in the neighborhood.  I also like to play with my toys and run around the house with my foster siblings.   We all have a great time together.   When I am finally tired from all that playing, I love to sit in my foster mom’s lap to get pets and tummy rubs.  I’m quite the cuddler and will give you lots of kisses.  

If you think that I would be a perfect match for your family, please contact my foster mom at seastham1@gmail.com.  She can tell you lots more about me.  Also, please look at my Petfinder page for even more information.

I am altered, up-to-date on all my shots and am heartworm negative.

HUCKLEBERRY – I’VE BEEN ADOPTED!!!

Posted in Uncategorized at 3:49 pm by Administrator

Huckleberry.JPG

Hello out there!!!  My name is Huckleberry and I am a Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen mix or PBGV for short.  I’m a 2 year old male and I weigh about 25 pounds, give or take a pound or two!!  I know I’m not very small and fluffy, but I am up for adoption and ready to find my forever home just like all my foster buddies here at Lone Star.  I’m also a lot cuter than my picture shows – I’m just not very photogenic!!

I love to be around people and am very friendly once I get to know you.  I will give you lots of kisses, if you give me some pets in return!!  I’m a little too big to be a lap dog, but given the opportunity I sure try to get in my foster mom’s lap!!   I found that sitting right next to her is just as good as being in her lap.  I also follow my foster mom around the house all the time and manage to sometimes get right underfoot.  If someone wants to hold me, I roll on my back, look up at them and wait to be picked up.  I just want to be with my people!! I like dogs all right if they are bigger than I am.  No smaller dogs for me!  To tell you the truth, I would REALLY like to be in a home that has no dogs, or maybe just one dog that’s bigger than me.  I play a little with my foster siblings, but I prefer to play with my foster mom and the family!!  Older kids would also be great in my forever home, but an adult only home is just fine too.  I do very well in my crate and am very quiet and relaxed when I am in it.  I eat my meals there and get all of my treats there because sometimes I’m a little possessive of my food.  I don’t mind being in my crate at all.  My crate is my little den and I feel safe there.  I am also learning housebreaking and my foster mom says that so far I am doing quite well.  If you think a PBGV is right for your family, look no further.  I am your guy and I promise that I will love you forever.  Please check out my Petfinder page and also email my foster mom at sherry@pawpawpatch.net for more information.I am altered, up-to-date on all my shots and heartworm negative.

JAX – I’VE BEEN ADOPTED!!!

Posted in Uncategorized at 3:11 pm by Administrator

Jax 21.jpg

My name is Jax.  I am a 10 month old male Shih Tzu/Bichon Frise mix and I am cute, cute, cute!!!  My coat is white and very soft to the touch, and I weigh about 13 pounds or so.  
 I’m still a puppy and very much a lively boy, so I will need to go to a home where there is someone around to play with me and give me lots of love.  Also, there needs to be another playful young pup in the house to keep me company.  That’s a rule here at Lone Star as they want to make sure that all young pups have a dog-friend to play with!  I’m a little frightened of children and would prefer a home that has all adults or one with kids 16 years and older.
  

My favorite thing (besides my foster mom of course) is my little pink and white blankie.  I know I’m a boy and shouldn’t really like pink and white, but I just love to carry around that blankie!  I will carry it all over the house and hardly get it out of my sight.   Another thing I like to do is take long walks.  I never seem to get tired and will just go, go, go.   I’m a pretty good snuggler too and will come right up to my foster mom at night while she is watching TV.  I get lots of pets from her and I especially love that. 
I am also quite a talker. If one of my toys goes under the coffee table, or I want to play with my foster mom, I will always let her know.  I do a growl-yip sound that my foster mom says is very cute.  

If you would like to learn more about me, please check out my Petfinder Page and also please email my foster mom at jmanderson5656@sbcglobal.net   She’ll tell you even MORE good things about me!!!

PINK – I’VE CROSSED THE RAINBOW BRIDGE

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:25 am by Administrator

Pink2.JPG

My name is Pink and I am the sweetest little Lhasa Apso girl you will ever meet.  I am about 6 years old, have beautiful soft white hair with tan markings, and I weigh about 20 pounds or so (yes, I am a tad bit overweight).   I just need some exercise, like taking long walks and playing fetch with my new forever family, to burn off a few of those extra pounds. 
 

I love my foster dad and my 8 foster siblings very much.  But, I need to find a forever family to call my own.  I follow my foster dad around the house and am particularly happy when he stops to give me tummy rubs and ear scratches.  Those are the best!!  I also like to ride in the car and when we go on walks, I don’t pull my leash or run and jump.  I am a bit food protective, but I don’t snap or bite when someone gets near my food bowl.  I just give a little growl to let them know I’m still eating!!   I am also fully housebroken, know some commands, and everyone says that I am very well-behaved.  I think I am actually a perfect little lady!! 
 

Like I said, I like my other foster siblings, but I would really prefer to be your only princess – oops, I mean dog!  I love to sleep with my foster dad and I snuggle up to him at night.  I also will sit right next to him when he’s watching TV.  And when he comes home at night, I’m right there at the door waiting for him.   I just want to be with my people.
 

I do have “lazy eye” that my ophthalmologist says was a result of a birth defect.   One of my eyes looks straight ahead and the other looks off to the side.  I am blind in that eye, but my eye that looks straight ahead is perfect.  My foster dad says that I can see a doggie treat in his hand from 100 yards away!  
 

I would love to be your special girl and be your little princess.  I just need someone to love me and take care of me for the rest of my life.  I promise I won’t disappoint you.
 

If you think you might be interested in learning more about me, please email us.  You can reach us at my personal email address pink@actioncentral.net.   I will make sure my foster dad gets the message.  Also please check out my Petfinder page for even more information about me.
