The adoption fee for most of these dogs is $200, puppies are $250, seniors $150; if a dog is not spayed or neutered we require a $75 deposit, which is refundable once surgery is performed.

Please consider adopting one of our sweet seniors! Read the top ten reasons to adopt an older dog here.

The page is updated regularly, please scroll to the bottom of the page to see all of our available dogs.

Also, [Application Pending] means the dog does have an application, but backups are welcome and [Adoption Pending] means the dog is in an adoptive home on the trial period, but has not yet been adopted so we will still accept applications until the adoption is finalized.

Joey

Joey is a 11 years young beagle/cocker mix looking for his forever home! Don't let his age fool you; he's still an energetic dog who can chase a ball for hours. Joey's previous owner raised him since he was a puppy, but unfortunately had to go to a nursing home when she could no longer take care of him. Joey craves attention, loves to snuggle, and is an excellent lap dog. He's used to being the king of the castle and will need a patient and loving home willing to work with him and his strong sense of ownership over toys and treats. He is house trained, walks well on a leash, gets along well with dogs and cats, and would do best in a home with no children.


If you're looking for an energetic and lovable dog, Joey might be the guy for you!

Patriot

Patriot is your basic good, friendly beagle boy. His foster mom reports that he is very affectionate. Patriot loves being outside and has a great deal of fun romping around the yard with the two dogs in his foster home, then chilling out in front of the TV on his favorite dog bed. Patriot will be happy to find his perfect home!

Please note, a high speed camera may be needed to capture Patriot's extremely happy tail wagging!

Champ

Champ is a 9-year-old sweetheart. He came to Hound Rescue exhausted after spending some time on his own, but he clearly has not always been on his own. He is house trained, knows and follows basic commands, and is just a sweet, easygoing beagle boy. Nothing seems to bother him, and he gets along well with kids, cats, and dogs. He likes his walks and driving in the car.

Champ seems to be a bit hard of hearing, not unusual for an older dog. He is heartworm positive and will be treated for this while with Hound Rescue, and then should be good as new. Champ is ready to hunker down in his forever home!

Buddy

Buddy is a 10-year-old dachshund-miniature pinscher mix – or something like that – one of those “who knows?” dogs. Mostly he’s just a cute little guy, very friendly and easygoing. He loves walks, is very well-behaved when taken places, and rides great in the car. He gets along just fine with the 5 other dogs in his foster home. He does chase the cats, so a cat-free home is recommended. He is housebroken, not destructive, and not much of a barker. Buddy would do well in either a house or an apartment, although a secure yard is a must, since he is a bit of an escape artist. Buddy would fit well into almost any home – maybe yours!

Maddy

Maddy is a sweet beagle girl looking for a forever home where she can get as much attention as possible. She is housebroken, loves to eat, and is a quiet girl. She loves to cuddle and be petted. She gets along with other dogs and people. She walks well on a leash and is currently able to walk about 2 miles a day. Maddy has a few benign fatty masses, but don't let her physical appearance deter you from her sweet personality!

Princess

Princess has a really sweet, mellow personality, loves being in a lap, snuggling and tummy rubs. Her brown soulful eyes just capture your heart when she looks at you. She is a nester and loves getting her blanket all situated for a good nap. She loves being around her humans and canine sisters. She is housebroken and knows to go sit by the back door when she wants out. She loves being outside with her foster sisters, rolling in the grass and just stretching out and snoozing in the sun. She would make a good only dog or a great companion dog.

René

Sweet René is a terrific pup if you want to cuddle! Rene is a new rescue so we are still getting to know her. She was timid and shy at first but warmed up rather quickly. The shelter tells us René is 5 years and she is very curious. René is learning how to use the dog door. For the most part, she is house trained but has had a few accidents. René does have a hernia and will have surgery to correct this. It appears she was an only pet and not much of a barker.

Pluto

Pluto is out of this world! This special guy is gentle and loving with everyone - including small children. He enjoys human companionship over dog buddies but shows no sign of aggressive behavior. (he is being fostered in a home with multiple dogs) He is definitely a Velcro dog and will let you know if he can't see you. He is house trained and is working on his leash skills and manners.

Pluto does have a couple medical issues we are working to resolve, including heartworm treatment, which Hound Rescue will pay for at ATA even if he's adopted already. Don't that that scare you off this sweet guy!

Lucy

Lucy is a happy, sweet little girl, who we refer to as Little Bit because she is so tiny. She is a major lap dog who would spend 100% of her time in an available lap. When not in a lap, she will follow you everywhere you go. She gets along well with all of her foster sisters, but can be a bit territorial when it comes to sleeping spots on the bed. She is not much of an outside girl; she goes outside, but then wants back in immediately. Not much of a barker, really very quiet for a beagle. Oh, and she is a major momma's girl. Dad's OK, but mom is her favorite.

Oscar

Oscar is a very sweet boy! He gets along with the 3 other dogs (all girls) in his foster home. It took him 4 days to bark the first time, then very softly. He enjoys sunbathing, treats, relaxing on the sofa or deck and just walking around the back yard. He allows himself to be handled while eating, totally loves belly rubs. I enjoy talking to him and he listens and loves to be part of the conversation. He has such a sunny and laid back disposition, he will not go unnoticed!

Jenny

Jenny is a sweet puppy (11 weeks old as of 8/22) looking for the perfect forever home. Like all puppies Jenny requires patience, consistent training, middle of the night bathroom breaks and lots of love and cuddles. For her young age she is a fast learner and quickly learning to go to the bathroom outside. Jenny is the typical food motivated beagle. She is doing well with the sit command for any treat. She loves playing with other dogs (big and small) but also stays very close to her humans when exploring outside.

She takes the hints pretty well from her senior female foster sister as Jenny thinks she is a big girl at times and thinks that all dogs want to play with her like other puppies would. Jenny would do well in a home with or without other dogs. She definitely loves to play but can also entertain herself quite well with her toys.

Jenny will quickly capture your heart with her puppy kisses and cuddles!

Foster or Adopter Needed

Faith & Julie

These two girls tugged at our heartstrings, which is why we have them. Surrendered by an owner who sadly could no longer care for them, we just couldn't not step in. They are a very bonded pair of girls and must be placed together. They're also about the sweetest things, with very few demands about what they need in a home: shelter, food and love. Furniture privileges would be a bonus! Given their age, they do have some medical issues - completely to be expected. So are we looking for the needle in a haystack? Absolutely, but these sweet girls are so deserving and will reward whoever is lucky enough to adopt them for the rest of their days.

Leona

Leona is a tiny (18 lbs) beagle girl around 1 year old. Thanks to her happy attitude, Leona gets along very well with people (including children) and other dogs. She stays away from cats at her foster home. Leona is smart, curious, and very friendly. She loves people and is never too tired to give you an extra kiss. She spends her "free time" playing with her foster sisters and "working" on various chewable bones. She also enjoys taking long walks and running around on the back yard. Leona quickly learned basic commands and is successfully graduating from the "potty-training program". She is crate-trained and loves sleeping in her bed.

Leona is still very young, therefore she will benefit from some positive guidance at her new home. Meanwhile, she is patiently waiting for a loving family to call her own.

Ladybird

Ladybird is wonderful little energetic girl. On paper she is 8 years old, but do not let her age fool you, she is absolutely healthy and is full of joyful energy. She is enthusiastic about walks and games. She always watches me and follows me, asking "what do we do next?" Her tail is a non-stop wag. She is very affectionate, quite a lap-dog and always smiling. She likes her crate, I keep it open and she goes in when she feels like it. She is potty trained. She loves the neighbor's two 8-year old girls who come to visit her very day. She does not care about cats at all. Ladybird will probably do best as an only dog in a home with a structured routine where she can get lots of attention, as she has been a bit bossy with the other dogs in her foster home, though with the right match she would be fine.

Caldwell

Caldwell is a very happy and well-adjusted boy and likes to play with both other dogs and people. He will enjoy an active person or family who will spend time with him and take him places like the dog park and on super fun walks! As a typical young Border Collie mix and “active companion” (vs. “companion” or “couch potato” energy levels), Caldwell does need daily exercise but his energy is not excessive, and he does like to crash and curl up for a good nap after play time. Caldwell likes to play with balls and tug toys with people and other dogs.

Caldwell has not been tested with cats, but has done great with kids of all ages at All Border Collie Rescue’s monthly meet and greet events at Natural Pawz in Houston.

Caldwell is an energetic puppy and loves to play with his brother and the several other dogs in his foster home of both genders, all ages, and all sizes. Caldwell kennels/crates well, sleeps through the night in his kennel without issue, and also is trained to go into his kennel for meals. He would love for his new owner to take him to a basic obedience class to learn how to work well together and as a bonding experience. He loves to swim in the pond at his foster home with all of the other dogs.

Scruffy

He is a cute little boy who loves attention, but is not demanding of it. He pulls fairly hard on the leash but likes to walk. He is crate trained, curious, and getting along fine with the other 3 dogs. He does not act his age but rather is still reasonably active. If ignored he will often go sleep in his crate. He really deserves a forever home and should be OK with children since he came from a family with them.

Clara is one sweet lady. This six year old tri-colored beagle is a complete Love Bug. She is a very happy dog that will never turn down a snuggle and a good belly rub. She has a tail that does not stop. She is house and dog door trained and walks quite energetically on a leash. Clara gets along great with her canine siblings. One look in those lovely brown eyes and you will be hooked!
