Sandy the dog


Sandy is a beautiful, healthy spayed female approximately six and a half months old. She was found at 10-weeks wandering the streets of Taft with her seven brothers and sisters. The entire litter was almost feral so their foster family has worked hard to socialize these lovable pups. Sandy has had all her shots and is current on her heartworm medication. Sandy loves to play ball with her foster family and frolick in the wading pool. Because of Sandy's early life on the streets, she is still shy around strangers. She needs a loving family who will patiently continue her socialization training. Sandy gets along well with other dogs and would do best in a family as a companion dog. This beautiful burnt orange dog would make a loyal companion for any Longhorn fan!

Disney the dog

Disney the dog


Disney is a beautiful 'red-boned hound', less than a year old. She weighs 45 lbs, spayed and UTD on shots. She is a reddish color, very friendly, playful and inquisitive. She needs a secure yard where she can run and play. She loves to go for walks and loves the outdoors, but needs to be kept inside when it's cold or raining.

When the kids in the neighborhood see her they all come running and yelling "Disney" and she loves it. They hug her and she is very friendly. She has the body of a greyhound-sleek and slender, and the head of a small lab--someone told me she looks like a 'ridgeback hound'.  

Please call 361-985-1553 if you are interested in Disney.

the Day!
