It's been 6 months since Zeph came to live with us. He loves everyone and everyone loves him back. He's the sweetest, most playful dog we've ever had. He loves to chase, play with kids and other dogs. He also enjoys fishing. Thank you for letting us adopt Zephie.
We adopted Daisy in March 2014. We had planned to just look around on our first visit to the Humane society, but there was something about Daisy (she was Sammie over there). We adopted her that day. It took just a few weeks of adjustment for all of us, but she was perfect for our family. She is great with the kids and she loves going everywhere with us- camping, beach, boating ! We are so thankful she came into our lives. Thank you !!

Sally has been such a joy ever since we adopted her a few months ago. She is the perfect addition to our family. She loves taking rides in the car as long as she can roll down the windows herself. She is very smart, in fact she has just graduated from Puppy Training at PetSmart. She helps me at work and has become the joy of the office as well as the defender from the squirrels! She is such a loving and fun puppy. We could not be happier with her. Thank you for finding her and giving her to us!
It has been 2 and a half months since I adopted Nadia (now Honey) and I just wanted to send an update. She is doing very well and learning very fast. She still gets a little freaked out and destructive for about 5 minutes or so when I leave her alone to go to work or something, but we are working on it and she is getting better I think. She knows sit, stay, shake, lay, play dead, up, down, and we are working on heel. We usually just walk without a leash and she does great! We are going to the Danny Jackson Bark Park every week and she loves running around with the other dogs. She spends the whole time trying to get dogs to chase her.
Wanted to give you a quick update on one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
I did very quickly realize why Ranger had been returned twice – but it wasn’t an issue we couldn’t deal with. He has very bad separation anxiety – but we have a large crate that we now refer to as his “club house” and he doesn’t mind being in there when we have to leave him – which is hardly ever. That dog goes everywhere with us. He also does fine if there are other dogs in the house – we sometimes leave him at my grandparents home with their two dogs – he doesn’t play with them he just likes them being there. He has only had 1 accident in the house since we got him and that was his first day – so that’s been really great. His temperament is excellent – he has become the neighborhood mascot and all the kids take turns walking him or pulling him in his wagon if he gets tired. I put together a quick collage to show some cute pics of this goofy dog. We love him.
Thanks for making our adoption experience great!
We adopted Moo a few weeks ago and she is so happy here. After a rough start she and our other cat Squeak are now hanging together and grooming. She is sweet and loving I am glad we could give her a home. Here they are hanging on the upstairs futon
Bobby, the chi, is doing great, already gaining weight. We love this sweet, happy boy. Thank ya'll so much!!
I met Nadia at the humane society about 2 weeks ago and immediately fell in love. I could not believe that she had been there for over a year! A week later I was able to take her home and she has been perfect. She is GREAT in cars. She is very affectionate but also entertains herself. She is amazing on the leash. And she is wonderful with other people and dogs. She did have a few potty accidents the first day on the carpet, which was totally understandable. We have been working on the potty training and after only a week I really think she gets the picture,
I also decided to change her name. After a lot of thinking and polling amongst my friends and family, I finally decided to name her "Honey", for three reasons: She is super sweet. She is honey-colored, and she looks like a miniature shephard. So its like "Honey I shrunk the dog!"
I'd like to thank everyone at the HHS for helping me to find my new best friend. You all were so nice and helpful and informative. Thank you so much! Hope I can bring her down to visit you all again sometime.
I just adopted Grayce about two weeks ago and she has already settled in perfectly. It was definitely meant to be. She’s a magnificent dog, so well behaved and playful. I love her so much and my parents love her as well. She’s really shy around people, but she comes out of her shell around dogs. I take Grayce to the dog park every day and she has made a good friend with a dog similar to her size. They love to rough house and play tug-a-war.
And you should see her run. I have a magnificent, secluded field behind my apartments and I let her go wild. I swear she has some greyhound in her. My parents, and Daniel (my boyfriend who came with me to adopt her) like to play the guessing game of what is she :) So far we believe she’s greyhound, pointer, and lab. People say we can go have her tested, but I like not knowing. When people ask me what she is, I tell them she’s a pure mutt, which is exactly what I was looking for because I’ve always found that mutts are the sweetest most loyal so, as my boyfriend says “We did good.”
You’re probably wondering why I call her Grayce Loo Fribusch. Well, a woman who is like a mother to me always gives her dogs a middle name which rubbed off on me. And for some reason Grayce Lou just made a lot of since. Then I remembered the Ms. Congeniality movie with Sandra Bullock and her undercover name was Gracie Lou Freebush, and since it’s a movie I love, I thought I’d go with it. But ya’ll spelled Gracie differently so I thought I’d do the same with her other names so I came up with Grayce Loo Fribusch-Shelton. Just to have some fun. It’s obviously too long to put on her collar.
When I came in that day, I hadn’t planned on adopting a dog, I just wanted to look around before I brought my parents to help, but Grayce was a gift from God and I treat her as such.
I’ll keep you guys updated, but Miss Grayce is keeping me super busy and I love it :) She makes an amazing pet.
We had the privilege of adopting Aussie in early December when he won our hearts with our very first interaction. He has doubled in size since we first brought him home, and yet he still has the enthusiasm of a little puppy. He has a very sweet disposition and greets every person or animal as a friend. He loves to play outside and has really mastered the art of fetch . He thoroughly enjoys every toy he encounters and spending quality time with people. The best feeling in the world is coming home to his wonderful hugs and kisses as if you have been gone on a long journey and yet it was only a short time.
Aussie is such an integral part of our lives that it only seemed fitting that he was at the center of the next stage of our lives as well. He brings us so much joy, and Dan made sure he was also part of our engagement. It was Aussie with his sweet puppy kisses and an adorable red bow that actually held the ring on his collar. Dan proposed and Aussie chimed in with his dog tag asking me to make his dad "legit". We recently decided on a date for our wedding where Aussie shared the news with our closest friends and family. He is currently preparing for his role as the ring bearer in between doggie play dates and obedience training. We are forever grateful to Houston Humane Society for our little guy and cannot say enough wonderful things about the staff there and the animals they save!
Gator is about 2 month-old and he is such a cute baby. He is hyper and very active most of the time, but once he gets sleepy, he falls asleep everywhere. I took this picture when he was laying across my thigh and then suddenly just fell asleep. Gator needs some potty train but I love him head-to-toe anyways. He likes to crawl onto my lap while I'm studying and just lay there like a little baby. I am much happier since he is around. Thank you, HHS!
