Meet Dash - a two-year-old cutie pie found wandering the streets in the Houston area. Although he’s scruffy looking in his photos, Dash was just neutered so we have to wait a few days before we can get him groomed.
Dash earned his name for two reasons: 1) he was found dashing around the streets, and 2) everyone who sees him is going to want to dash to get their applications in for this special boy.
We are still learning more about Dash, but so far we know that he’s a happy little boy full of pep and ready to play. He loves toys and enjoys chasing you or running after the toys you throw. Dash gets along well with the dogs he has been around since we’ve had him and waits quietly in his crate. He will need help with potty training, but he wants very much to please.
Dash weighs a thin 12 pounds, he is neutered, micro-chipped and current on all vaccinations. He is located in Houston, TX and waiting for his new family so he can dash into your arms.
If you are interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application. If you would like more information, please contact Connie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep in mind that we prefer to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to travel in the cabin with the passenger.

Dash - Freshly Groomed!
January 4, 2010
Shortly after we posted Dash to our website he was diagnosed as heartworm positive. Treatment for heartworms requires that the patient go through a series of painful shots and be strictly confined during the treatment for a few weeks or months depending on the severity of the heartworms. Dash has undergone his second treatment and has about three more weeks of confinement before he will ready for his forever home.
Dash has been a trooper through his treatment and looks forward to the day he gets his clean bill of health so he can bust out of his crate and play. We look forward to that day too!
Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitoes, so if you live in an area that has mosquitoes, it is very important that you keep your pet on monthly heartworm preventative so they do not have to endure the pain of not only the shots but also the months of confinement. Not only is this hard on your pet, it will be very expensive for you.
We are now accepting applications for this very special little boy!
