Sully Solstice


Adopted 04/30/22


I changed his name to…

Johnny B😊

Then after realizing you can take someone out of the streets, but you can’t take the streets out of them. (He is a runner) he now has this…

I named him…

Johnny B Streets 😁

Then once I realized he is fearless, I named him….

Johnny B Streets Savage Lol 😂

Now he just goes by Streets 🤣😂

I’ve learned….

1. He buries the toys so Fred won’t get them.

2. He enjoys playing ball.

3. He has one trick…he can catch any kind of treat you throw in his general direction…but… he can’t sit, stay, lay, or any of the other general commands. 😆 I’m convinced it’s because he was living on the streets and people tossed him food.

He was fairly untrusting but just a little. Now, he fights for mommy!!

If I’m sitting on the patio and he goes in to eat or anything, he can’t help but continue to run back and forth hoping he isn’t missing anything. 😝

Fred and I LOVE him very much!!


Rosie Rosaline


Adopted 04/27/22


Rosie has been both a joy and a challenge. She is a very loving dog and loves having house guests because she likes the extra attention. The only dog that has visited is a minature greyhound--they ignore each other.

She is very attached to Phoebe and follows everywhere Phoebe goes. Sometimes she goes into a fit of protective barking/growling if she thinks Phoebe is in danger. This particularly happens if I hug and kiss Phoebe as I leave. But we are working on it.

She still barks too much, has quieted down some, needs to get better. I think she will as she gets more settled. She had her second visit with the groomer today and was much more relaxed. The first time we had to muzzle her. Today she allowed her to pick her up and wash her as well as trim her coat and nails and just tried to kiss the groomer.

We are happy to have her in our lives.


Charlie Chambers


Adopted 04/24/22



Mousie Montague


Adopted 04/22/22



Boss Bolide
"Murphy"


Adopted 04/17/22


We changed his name to Murphy. He lives life large. He is happy, loves his toys and does everything with extreme enthusiasm. I taught him to roll for treats just like his dog siblings Abby and Rusty (Rusty is a DREAM dog). He is a great addition to our family.

Dexter Dublin


Adopted 04/12/22



Toby Throckmorton


Adopted 03/25/22



Trooper Tetilla
"Duke"


Adopted 03/20/22


Duke is doing very well and he’s settled in great! Our other dachshund, Macklin adores him and my girls love Duke. The pups know once I put my kiddos to bed that it is cuddle time so they will both lay in my lap on the couch. I told my husband my lap still has room for more though. 😊

Walter Wensleydale
"Cat Stevens"


Adopted 03/17/22



Lily Lynn


Adopted 03/12/22


We absolutely love Lily. She was everything we wished for. Lily loves going on long walks and keeping up with her sister Penny. She’s come a long way from when we first got her. She was scared at first but now loves people.

Dude Dogberry
"Little Dude"


Adopted 03/09/22



Parker Pappardelle


Adopted 03/05/22



Red Rallycap


Adopted 03/05/22


We are all so in love with Red! He is the sweetest dog! He is a lovebug who loves to sit in my lap and give me lots of kisses! He and I bonded immediately, and he follows me everywhere I go!

He loves running around in our big yard, chasing squirrels and rabbits. (Never catches them, but he sure tries!)

We added a 3rd doxie rescue 2 months ago and he and Red are the best of friends. All 3 love to pile up together on the bed for naps.


Teddy Spaghetti


Adopted 03/05/22



Terra Tyler
"Terrie"


Adopted 03/05/22


Terra is doing great (we have renamed her Terrie). She already seems to be adjusted. She likes to be with either Jackie or I. Although its probably 60/40 in favor of Jackie.

Greta Grayson


Adopted 03/02/22


Greta and Hana have both really bonded to me, and I was not sure this would happen as they were very scared and nervous when they first got here. Greta was the one that let me connect with her first. However, Hana very quickly became my lap dog. Every time I sit in my recliner, she jumps into my lap. They love to sleep with me and are very good about using a pad in the house when they are not able to go outside to do their business.

My daughter just loves sitting with them and playing with them. She even made two little signs to put a treat on, one of which said I Love my sister and the other said I love my mommy. She put the treats down on them and said that the one they ate was the one they said. I know they can't read, but my daughter was so excited doing this. At first Greta would not take either of the treats. It was only after Hana got over to the treats that both took their treats and made their selections.

They get treats in the morning and even though food is in their bowl during the day until they eat it, they do not seem to want to eat unless I am sitting next to the food.

They are still very nervous when new people are around. Due to a medical emergency, I did have a few new people come by and stay for an extended period. Just when I thought they had adjusted to that person, they would make a sudden move, and the girls would start barking as if they never met the person in the room. I feel like there is some trauma that they are slowly overcoming.

They seem very happy, and we are adjusting.

Shotsy Swiss
"Gino"


Adopted 02/19/22


Schotsy Gino is doing great. Fitting right in as a family member. Follows me all over the house and loves walks on the leash. His former "Mom" must be looking down from heaven smiling.

He and Milo are great together. He follows me everywhere and is very comfortable in his new home with his new family. Dogs are amazing! Again I want to thank Dream and all the volunteers for making possible in giving Schotsy a new family and us a new little boy. By the way, we did rename him Gino in honor of his foster Gina.


Alexas Alexander


Adopted 02/17/22


She is getting her heartworm treatment and has been making friends with Princess. We go to the park a lot down the street and recently went on a vacation!

Antler Anchellini
"Dodger"


Adopted 02/16/22



Sasha Shalana


Adopted 02/13/22


Sissy (Sasha) is dachshund through and through. We live on half an acre, so Sissy has taken over the security role with vigor. She is quite the little huntress. When she goes outside, she immediately, I mean IMMEDIATELY, springs into action, checking all the lizard hiding places to make sure they are kept in check. She’s not afraid of a thing and, although she’s all of 9 lbs, believes she is as big as a Great Dane.

Sissy is quite the entertainer and keeps us laughing at her little antics. There’s never been a little dog that can shake her “prey” toys any harder. We believe it’s just a matter of time before she knocks herself out! And smart? Sissy is extremely smart. We believe she is part human and, actually, she does too.

How we love this little girl! Our little buzz saw and snuggle bunny!

God is in control


Daisy Duval


Adopted 02/12/22



Ravi Ravioli


Adopted 02/05/22


Ravi is doing so amazing, and we couldn’t love him any more than we do. He bonded to us immediately after we got him, and he’s been inseparable from us ever since. I feel like he’s at the point now that his adult personality is coming out, and it’s not too different from when he was a puppy. He loves running, playing, jumping, napping, and being the center of attention. He has such a big and vibrant personality and brings so much joy to everyone he’s around. My favorite thing about him is ever since we taught him how to shake, he uses his paws to signal everything now. I can’t wait to one day bring him home a sibling, but for now he’s loving being an only child 😂

Rico Ricotta
"Bernie"


Adopted 02/05/22


We are loving having Bernie (Rico) in our home. He’s a great fit for us and he and Bo get along wonderfully!! We renamed him because he didn’t know Rico and he responded right away to Bernie.

Peter Parmesan
"Tigger"


Adopted 02/03/22



Pete Probowl


Adopted 02/01/22



Quentin Quince


Adopted 01/25/22



Ranger Rainout


Adopted 01/23/22


I cannot tell you how Ranger has stolen our hearts. He has quickly become a member of our family. He is the sweetest and most gentle dog. He has quickly bonded with the whole family, but he has especially bonded with me. He never leaves my side. I work from home, and he has his own chair next to mine and he stays with me while I work.

Also, back in March I had thyroid surgery and when I came home, he was waiting for me and as I crawled into bed, he gently made his way into bed and laid by me, and we went to sleep. I cannot tell you how much comfort he provided to me during my recovery.

Thanks so much for our opportunity to adopt him. We love him dearly. We are planning a beach trip and Ranger will be accompanying us. I can’t wait to see how he enjoys the beach.


Lindy Linguine


Adopted 01/17/22



Maple Manicotti


Adopted 01/17/22


We absolute LOVE Maple and she has been the best addition to our home ❤️ She has learned to play and roughhouse with our pit bull mix as well as our other dachshund and loves her siblings so much! She wants to be just like them! She has learned to go potty outside and how to tell us when she needs to go out. When she is outside, she is absolutely obsessed with the water hose! She loves to bite at the water and chase it around the yard. She has also been swimming in our pool every day and loves to rescue toys and float in her floaty. She is so silly and brings so much joy into our lives. Her and her pit bull brother play tug of war with the silliest things from our yard, like small weeds and pieces of grass or sticks that are still attached to the tree. She loves to snuggle up at night under the covers and has to check on us and give kisses if we cough, sneeze, or laugh too loudly 🤣 she is the best and sweetest addition to our family, and we are so happy to have her.

Thank you for all of the work you do to make it possible for us to have our wonderful baby ❤️

Pepper Pixie
"Piper Pixie"


Adopted 01/02/22


Piper (Pepper) and Ramsey are now best friends! She is such a sweet girl and very smart as well. We renamed her Piper Pixie (her pipes are very loud). She was such a good girl and did not make a fuss at the vets when she got all her shots. As a reward she had her first puppuccino with biscuit from the coffee shop. It seemed like she could not believe her eyes.

Desoto Derion


Adopted 01/01/22


I am happy to tell you that Desoto (aka Franky) and Otto are thriving! They have adjusted beautifully to their new home and routine. They are very loving and smart and have quickly bonded with our family and big sister Dakota.

Initially they were very scared of strangers and visitors and would bark nonstop. But with continuous walks, and lots of patience and love, they are not anxious anymore and now they don't bark at visitors or people at the park.

Both Frankie and Otto enjoy the back yard and have lots of space to run and play wrestle. They play with Dakota as well, though they are gentle with her.

Their second favorite thing is cuddling in bed with us to watch tv. They are very relaxed and confident.

During this spring break week, we took them to Galveston. They saw the sea and touched the sand for the first time. Loved the morning walks so much. Every day was a fun day of discovery at the beach.

Their next outing will be the Hill Country in April!

We are very lucky to have rescued these two cuties. They bring so much love and laughter to our hearts.
