Amari is a sweet, older guy! He is the strong, silent type...very gentle with his people and will paw for pets and love. Amari is house trained and loves being outdoors! He is not a fan of the crate and should not be around small pets. He has glaucoma so needs daily eye drops. Amari is doing great at his Foster Home but is ready for a Family of his own.

He rides well in the car too!
We know you’ll never forget, the Palm Valley “boy” that actually was a girl! Just look at Harissa now! OMG...what an amazing, breathtaking transformation! Look at the joy on her face! This face is why we do what we do! This sweet, sweet girl is all healed and ready for her very own Happily Ever After! Harissa is around 2 years old and is settling in wonderfully at her Foster Home. Harissa is not a fan of the crate and will be sure to let you know...unless you have noise proof walls, apartments would not be recommended as she can be quite vocal. She is potty trained and her Foster keeps her in a gated room where she does great. Harissa is a bit shy around new dogs but with proper introductions and some getting to know you time, she does well and loves to play. She has lots of energy but calms down quite nicely.
Katy is around 3 years old and recently joined the TXHR Family. She was an owner surrender at a local shelter along with her packmate Jon. Katy is a great gal, eager to please. Katy is dog friendly, people friendly and quite the talker. You know how red-head girls can be. Unfortunately both Katy and Jon are HW+ so Katy will need a Foster Family to help her through HW treatment but she will be ready for Forever very soon. So stay tuned for updates.
Liam suffered serious injuries when was hit by a car but after a lot of recuperation, he's all healed and ready to meet his Forever Family! Due to the accident, he’ll never be a jogging companion, but he’d love to snuggle up with you on the couch and take easy walks. Just look at that charming face! Liam is around 3 years old and has tons of energy that he’s ready to share it with the world. He’s crate trained! Liam is doing great at learning how to be a dog as well as hanging out with his canine foster siblings. With patience and proper introductions, Liam could be a great pack member.
Mako is around 4 years old, has the softest fur and most hypnotic blue eyes. Mako is a spirited, playful and rambunctious guy. He would do best in a home with no young children but husky savvy teens would be fine. Mako needs a dog savvy leader who will enforce the rules and pack order. He is anxious to learn and takes direction very well. Mako does well with other dogs.
Otis is a charming older (7+ years old) man that was picked up as a stray in a rural part of the county. He wasn't reclaimed by his owners so was need of rescue. The shelter neutered him and started his heartworm treatment while he was there so now he just needs a month of leash walking and he'll be ready for foster or adoption in the near future. We'll know more about his personality as we spend more time with him but so far everyone has said that he's a real sweetheart.
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaik is a super sweet boy around a year old. He gets along with other dogs and is doing great at learning his house manners from his Foster Family. We recently discovered while Pyotr was receiving his initial vetting that he had been shot with several pellets that were lodged in his tail, but fortunately, these don't seem to bother him and his squirrel tail gives him extra character! Pyotr has settled in nicely and recovered from his neuter, but would love to find a permanent foster home or better yet a Forever Family!
Vigo is around six years old! He loves, loves, loves to play--especially with an equally enthusiastic canine buddy--but he also adores fetch and toys. He is a goofy, mischievous boy who will need patient adopters to teach him boundaries and continue his training. He is house trained and rides well in the car. His foster is currently working on crate training. Vigo is great with kids and dogs his size. An active family and a doggy sibling (or two) are recommended for this high energy, fun loving boy. Small animals are not recommended.
Wookie is a big, quiet 8 year red who is very soulful, and likes human company more than being a part of the pack. He prefers to hang by himself and loves to be around his special people. Wookie has a strong voice that sounds bigger than he is. Although he will occasionally play a little with other dogs at his Foster Home, he is generally a little picky about most dogs and does not like to share. He is not cat friendly and isn't really a fan of smaller dogs. Wookie isn't high on energy but will play with a tennis ball and LOVES stuffed animals to tear apart and carry around - Wookie also loves to watch TV and hang with the family for quiet snuggling on the couch or spend time hanging outside on a patio. Wookie loves car rides but will need help if he needs to jump up into a higher vehicle.
Originally it was reported that Wookie was deaf, this is unlikely, we think he just had a strong case of husky selective hearing!
