Tucker – formerly known as Hunter

posted in: Happy Tails! | 0

One of the puppies from the January litter has been home for awhile, but now formally is home. Congrats Tucker, formerly Hunter, on joining Sara and family. I’ve followed this pup since they began fostering him in January. Not only have they taken him in, but have fostered several others for STBTR during this time. Another prime example of how our tribe enables us to keep saving dogs. Congrats Sara and girls on your new family member, and way to go Tucker on finding your perfect home!

Dixie Dee – puppy

posted in: Happy Tails! | 0

Meet Miss Maddie and her new pup, Dixie Dee. Dixie Dee was one of Tory’s pups – remember Tory and her two pups that came in from Corpus a few weeks ago. Long story short is Maddie needed a puppy in her life, one that she could raise and learn to take care of. Dixie Dee will be fostered by Maddie’s family until her vetting is complete, and then will join their family forever.

Remember our fosters are so important to what we do. We don’t have a physical facility so if we don’t have a foster home for a dog coming in, we can’t take that dog regardless of how bad it needs us. Our fosters get to play the trump card – they get first shot at any dog they are fostering!

Special thanks to Terri McKinley who rode shotgun with me late one night to make the pickup, to Anette Uher for taking them in to the only spot we had for quarantine late that night, and to Jennifer Manuel for fostering all three until the babies were old enough to leave mom! It truly takes a village.

Frankie – formerly known as Pinkie

It’s official. Pinkie is now Frankie and has found her forever home with Yesenia and Matthew Salinas. They came all the way from San Antonio to meet her and fall in love. She has made herself right at home, and her family cannot fathom not having her forever. Here’s to your newest adventure!

Marvel ~ Happy Tail ❤️

Remember Marvel? It took awhile for him to find his person. But enter Scott Marion into the picture from Tulsa, OK. He drove down all the way to Houston to meet him and it was a perfect match!

Initially he was going to make a second trip to get everything ready and take him home, but decided he was taking him home that day! Sometimes we get discouraged that a dog remains in foster care longer than we like, but the perfect home always is out there!

Congrats to Marvel on his new home and to Scott on his new family member. Special, special thanks to Michelle Reilly, who tirelessly fostered Marvel during his time with STBTR! We are beyond thrilled!

What a fabulous GOTCHA DAY to share…
Baxter has found his forever family with the fabulous Mr and Mrs Valdez.

It was a perfect fit and he is enjoying being very loved and spoiled.

Sometimes it takes awhile to find just the right homes for our babies, but we never ever give up on them. God has a plan and always provides just what they need.

Welcome to your furever, Baxter boy. We are so happy for you. And congrats, Mr and Mrs Valdez. You sure got a winner! ❤?❤

Gunner II

Meet Sheila and Michael Goodson who met and fell for the handsome Gunner II. Love at first sight, but they had to wait until his vetting was all finished to take him home. We think that everyone involved is happy that they are now a family. Welcome to the best of your life, Gunner Goodson!

Rosie – puppy gotcha day

posted in: Happy Tails! | 0

We will start posting gotchas for the puppies since they are almost all where they will stay. Since picking the 8 up on January 5, we have been tracking the vetting on each one even though they were spread out from Bay City to Katy to Austin.

One of the puppies, Rosie, has found her forever family! The Jacobs family has fallen hard for her and she for them. She has kiddos to play with as well as her fur brother, Bennett.

Welcome to the best of your life, Rosie and congrats to the Jacobs family on your new addition.

Special thanks to Samantha Hill and family who fostered Rosie from January until she went to her new home.

Bandit (formerly known as Trigger)

Another of the pups, Trigger, now known as Bandit, has found his forever home with the Hutton family! They had to wait a bit between meeting him and taking him home until his vetting was complete. We also played phone tag with her family vet since she had recently moved to Texas and her vet was in Pennsylvania! Amanda’s family has always had rescue dogs, German Shepherds, but she has fallen for our smaller Boston breed. Welcome to the rest and best of your life, Bandit! Special thanks to Rae and Scotty McGee for fostering this guy for STBTR. Y’all are the best!

Extremely awesome Happy Tails story for you!

Noah, the adorabe English Bulldog tripod boy from Louisiana has made himself right at home with the Bronicki family.

Dad John, Mom Jackie, skin sis Olivia and fur brother Astro just adore him, and he feels the same. They are a very experienced bulldog family and did their research and due diligence to make sure they could care for Noah exactly the way he should be cared for. Funny thing is, Noah has no idea there is a leg missing. His nickname is “The Worm”.
Congrats to this lovely family and thank you for loving our boy!
