Houston is a very cute 1-2 year-old Jack Russell/Rat Terrier mix male with distinctive ears. He came to us from a rural county dog shelter as a very thin boy so we have no history on his previous life. Now that he’s in a foster home with us, he has been gaining weight and will soon be at his ideal weight of about 20 pounds. Houston is a very social and affectionate dog with his human friends and also gets along well with other dogs. He has excellent crate manners and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. Houston has plenty of spunk but also settles down nicely for a nap after playtime is over. He’d make a great walking buddy for someone who wants a small dog who can keep up a good clip. His adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Houston. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 48 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
