A Little Bit About Me

Did you see me on TV or hear about me on the radio? I was told I did a great job.

Want to know more? I am polite, know basic commands, I like children, I'm a great ball-fetcher and I love being around my family. Give me something to do and I'm the happiest guy in town. I just love company. Keep me busy, with a project or people, and I'll be in your debt forever.

A team member adds: "Tex is known by all the dog-walkers as a fun guy! He's a smart, energetic dog with good manners. When I walked him today I saw in his notes that he loves to play fetch, so we went to the dog park and had a blast! I asked him to DROP the ball, and SIT before I threw it again, and he picked up on what I was asking of him extremely fast and then did it every time. Wonderful dog!"

Team Member note: "Tex loves to play with balls and is genuinely fun, happy and affectionate; a cool dog with a wonderful demeanor. They say the more playful a dog is, the smarter he is. I think he would excel at agility too. I just basically threw a ball in the tunnel and he ran through, then showed him the ramp and he flew up it!"

We unfortunately can not put animals on HOLD over the phone

An animal that enters our shelter as a stray may be available to be viewed and pre-adopted before the available date. 

Please contact us to inquire about an animal’s current availability, with the animal ID. Although this website is live and updates frequently, there is a chance that you may arrive at our location after an animal has been adopted, or while another party is in the adoption process.
