Gracie was a Hurricane Ike rescue and is about 6yrs old. We were told that she is a Catahoula/Black & Tan Hound Mix. Gracie is very submissive and loving with humans. She is energetic when she gets excited and gets along fine with small dogs and cats and is in a home with lots of tiny dogs and cats since her foster mom already had other small foster dogs but just couldn't say no when Gracie came. She is looking for a home that can give her the attention she deserves. Gracie sleeps indoors at night and also stays inside on very cold or hot days. She has never had an accident inside and weighs about 80 pounds. she wants to be queen of the house and would be best to be the only dog. Please email tinypaws26@aol.com for an application.

Joby is an 8 year old neutered male Rat Terrier with lots of spunk and a great need for love. He lived his entire life with an elderly couple in a quiet home with no pets or small children (in residence). The man, whom he was devoted to, passed away and sadly his wife passed away not long after that. For almost a year he has lived at the Tiny Paws shelter. Recently he moved to a foster home and we are seeing his sweet, playful personality and his love of a nice warm lap. We are seeking an adult/senior home for this little guy who is not used to sharing his loved ones with another dog. He appeared love starved at first but his foster mom said he has calmed down and is content just to be close now (but lap preferred). Joby loves to chase a ball, play with toys and ride in the car. He will leash walk but can get enough exercise inside or outside through other activities. Rat Terriers are clean, healthy, long lived (12-18 yrs) little dogs that are smart, loving and great companions. Reduced adoption fee to good home. www.tinypawsrescue.com for an application

Beans only hope out of Angleton Animal Control was by a rescue group. We were there to get a lab puppy and noticed him. With his leg injury and cage aggression- his time was running short. They used a catch pole on him, then he sat for 4 days waiting for a rescue group. We couldn’t leave him behind- we knew he was just scared and that eventually he would come around. And he did- once he realizes who you are, Beans just wants to curl up in your lap. He’s a 6lb. long haired Chi (with a bad haircut). He gets along well with other dogs. He will undergo heartworm treatment and will be ready for his new home soon. If interested, please email fpsrescue@aol.com.
