Dozens of small dogs were seized from a Galveston home.

Description: Nola is a high-energy, ball-crazy, happy Lab mix. She takes loving the tennis ball and loving fetch to a whole new level. She would play fetch until she collapsed or your arm fell off, whichever came first. This girl needs a job or a highly active home to keep her mind and body busy. She is young, needs some manners taught but she is sharp minded and so eager to work and please her owner. She learns things in a flash. Nola is excellent with other dogs, cannot be placed with cats or small animals, and best suited to a home with older kids only because of her energy level and lack of awareness when she is chasing a ball or playing (she WILL knock people over!). She shows absolutely no aggression whatsoever, just really doesn’t understand to be gentle with the little ones. Nola would excel in a home who wanted to do a dog sport with her…dock diving or flyball would be absolutely right up her alley but she would likely do equally well in hunting or agility with training. However, she first and foremost would like to be a companion. Nola is about 1-2 years old, 50 lbs.

Maltese are affectionate, social dogs who become attached to all members of the family. Maltese dogs play happily with gentle children and get along with other pets in the home. The Maltese breed is a good choice if you live in a small house, because they are not high-energy dogs and do not require a lot of space. These little dogs do need exercise and will benefit from a daily walk and a chance to run around the yard if you have one. Maltese dogs are intelligent and enjoy mentally stimulating challenges, such as learning new tricks and playing games with the family.

Dozens of small dogs were seized from a Galveston home. Description: Bane is a stunning Akita who defines the Akita breed loyal, watchful, a dash of a stubborn streak, and incredibly beautiful. Bane’s tough dog exterior (and his big bark!) hides a soft soul who loves his people beyond measure. Once he bonds, you have a best friend for life. Bane is housetrained on a schedule, crates for the workday (though hates the crate and it’s a bit of a fight to get him in there), and minds his manners well in the house. He is a barker when appropriate so is not suitable to a home with shared walls (apartment, townhome, etc). Bane is an active dog who loves his walks and playtime but settles nicely once he is tired out. He is not good with cats or small animals. He is tolerant of other dogs though would be best in a home as an only dog or with a submissive, female who will respect his space. Like most Akitas, Bane has a stubborn, dominant streak and needs an experienced handler who will firmly, yet lovingly set the rules and boundaries for him. He toes the line perfectly once he knows what is expected of him but he needs a handler who can control a powerful, intelligent dog. Please do your research on this breed before considering adopting Bane, Akitas are fabulous companions in the right home but they are not the dog for everyone. Bane is a beautiful representation of his breed in both looks and temperament.

The Best Kind of Inside Dogs for Small Homes - Dog Care - Daily Puppy

Description: Ashley is young, small Pittie/ Lab mix who has seen a lot of life and from what we can tell, not much of it was good before being rescued. Sweet Ashley is so scared of people and expects the worst. Someone new reaches for her and she hides behind her dog buddy or she cowers and hits the floor expecting those hands to come at her with pain not love. No matter how scared, Ashley has never been aggressive or nippy, just shuts down and waits for the hurt to happen and be done. Ashley has a lot of positives going for her. She is housetrained at her foster home (though please, expect accidents as she transitions), crates nicely and quietly. adores other dogs, fine with cats, and good with older, respectful kids who understand that rowdy behavior scares her to pieces and know to be gentle. When she is feeling playful and gets excited she hops around and looks like a puppy for a moment until she second guesses herself and retreats, so there is very much a playful girl hiding in there just waiting to come out! What Ashley needs in a forever home is a home who can commit to providing her with stability, love, training, and lots of patience. She is what we affectionately refer to as a "project dog". She is looking for a special adopter to take her under their wing and nurse her spirit back to health, to teach her the world is a good place and not something to be feared, and to show her that she has a place in this world even though right now she feels the world is out to hurt her. Ashley needs is a quieter home with a securely fenced yard, preferably another dog to show her the ropes, and a committed foster/adopter who is in it for the long haul with her. Will it be easy? No. Working with a dog as scared as Ashley will test the limits of your patience and make you want to quit some days. It is not without its frustrations and it is not easy. But the first glimpses you see of breakthroughs for her, where she lets her guard down and acts like a dog will make it all worth it. If you have the experience (or willingness to learn) to help an extremely scared dog blossom and you can promise to commit to her even when you want to give up, please consider Ashley. She is such a kind soul. She deserves to know the world is a safe place.
