Scarlet
"Don’t I have a striking coat? It’s not scarlet like my name, but it’s beautiful anyway. Let me tell you some other things about me, since I have many other wonderful qualities. Modesty obviously isn’t one of them, but hey, when you’re as special as I am, why be shy about it? I love dogs, kids and toys, which is good because playing is my favorite thing to do. Even grownups like to play. I’m friendly to everyone. I’m strong, but I know how to calm down and be loving. I mean well and I’m willing to learn if you’re willing to teach me."

Lady
"Not only am I a pretty lady, but I’m also a cuddle bug! I enjoy cuddling, leaning up against legs, and going for walks. I LOVE treats and I know how to sit for them too! I can be a tiny bit shy at first when meeting new people but I’m a sweet lady who will be sweet towards everyone I meet. I know that I’ll make a wonderful furbaby to a loving family, I just wish I could find that family soon!"

Priscilla
"Hi everyone, so first thing is first, I love to hang with people and just enjoy the outdoors. Running and running till I can’t run anymore and then just lay and roll around on the grass! I also love to received warm hugs with the deepest affection! And I would love going home with you, where we could spend the rest of our lives playing and loving each other. I think you should come by and get me right away!"

Gunner
"I am an energetic and fun guy who loves his toys. If you toss me a ball, I will catch it in the air 100% of the time. I am thinking of trying out as an outfielder for the Astros but I plan to wait and see if they win the World Series first! Or until I find a really great family to love me and play ball with me, whichever comes first."

Shiner
"Hello, hello, hello hello!!! I am Shiner, the goofball that you will fall in love with 🙂 I love to run around outside and spend time with everyone. I want everyone to love me and I want everyone to feel as happy as I do when I’m spending time with my human pals. I am a silly piglet that has nothing but lots of love for you!"

Colton
"I’m just a big, affectionate hunk of dog who is enthusiastic about everything, especially humans and treats. I’ll sit for a treat, but I get so excited about taking it that I’m not exactly gentle about it. Don’t get me wrong – I wouldn’t hurt a flea (OK, I would hurt a flea, but not anything else), — but I just forget that my mouth is a lot bigger than the treat. I know sit and shake too, but my shake sometimes turns into giving you both paws in hopes that it will get me more treats. I’ll make you laugh with my antics and I’ll make you love me too."

Joel
"Hi, I’m Joel! Some of us dogs just can’t get into hanging out in our kennels because we find kennels boring! I’d much rather be outside where all the action is! Give me a chance to meet you outside and you’ll see what a happy boy I am! I walk well on a leash and will smile for you. Sometimes I’m on alert for squirrels and will scope out my surroundings. I can be charming and I love attention, especially when attention involves me receiving treats! I love treats and I learn very quickly. Once I get to know you, I might turn into a lap dog. I have to admit that I may get excitable during playtime, so it would be best that I go to a home with older children. I also get along great with dogs but I’d rather hang out with the calm ones. I’m ready to find my home soon! Please give me a chance to go on a stroll in the dog park with you!"
