Smooth, Blasck and White Tri
Eskie rescue was contacted by a local shelter about a dog who had been returned to the
shelter after a number a years. When they arrived they found out that the owner had
also turned in another dog.
Not wanting to separate the pair, Eskie rescue bailed both
- an eskie and a smooth coat border collie. Tina loves her eskie friend, but they are
not so bonded that they can't be separated.
Tina is a sweet, affectionate little girl,
who is past all the silly puppy antics, but has plenty of love and life in her. She is
a sweet, submissive girl who likes people, including gentle children (as far as we can
tell). Her ears are incredibly expressive and pop up and down when you talk to her.
She ignores the cats at the kennel and is fine with other dogs. Tina is fastidious
in her kennel and waits until she's taken outside to take care of business, so we believe
she is housebroken. She shows some interest in toys at the kennel, but is more interested
in human interaction.
Tina walks nicely on a leash. She was initially in a run with
her eskie friend, but Tina got a little protective of her food, so moved in to the run
Tina has been spayed, and is up to date on all her shots.
adopters can send an email to Houston_eskie_resq@yahoo.com
or can fill out an adoption
application with Houston Eskie Rescue.
Patterned White Smooth Coat, White and Black
Active Companion/Sports Competitor
Meet Susie Q!!! She is full of life and energy and would love to have a job. She is extremely
agile and can jump about 8' long and 2+' straight up. She has all the typical herding
instincts and would make a great country dog or a pet for a very active family. She is
huggy, kissy, loves belly rubs and really wants to please. She likes her crate at night
with a mind occupying toy to keep her brain busy till she falls asleep. She seems to get
along with most other dogs with a few exceptions. She does not do well with small dogs
due to what seems to be a high prey drive (so small farm animals would not be good for her
either) and she does not do well with other alpha females. Susie will need just the right
home that understands her breed and can provide the environment where she will thrive. She
is such an awesome dog! Please consider adding her to your home.
Please visit www.krrtx.org/forms for an application. All references will be checked and a
home visit may be done. The adoption fee is $150.
If you have a place in your heart and home for a girl like this,
you can contact email@example.com.
As the name implies, we are a rescue out of Mexico. Please go to
website to learn more about SAMM and our mission to stop the
suffering of homeless street dogs.
Jack was rescued after being hit by a car. He had an initial
surgery to repair his pelvis and reset his hind leg.
Unfortunately, he never regained use of the leg and it atrophied
and the paw became raw and infected. A second surgery was
performed to removed the leg. So, Jackie is a tripod. He gets
around better now than when he still had the leg but no use of
it. He is a typical Border Collie - almost too smart for his own
good. He wants to inspect everything you are doing, he wants to
herd and protect his flock/people, he does not understand or
care about 'tone of voice' correction, he does respond extremely
well to food based rewards. Jack loves to play with a tennis
ball and will retrieve and will play alone with the ball. He
will be fine with older, respectful children and LOVES and needs
another dog to play with. Jack is also good with cats. He is
neutered, fully vaccinated, and dewormed. We estimate Jack to be
about 1 1/2 years old. This dog is currently in foster in Mexico
and will be until foster/adoption and transport arrangements can
be made to Texas.

HANDSOME HANK is what we call him around here, and we sure think
his name suits him!! He's current on his vaccinations, neutered,
and has been taking monthly heartworm preventative since he was
3 months old. Hank and his siblings were rescued as tiny pups
during the hot Texas summer with temperatures reaching 106
degrees. They were all brought to safety and have been in foster
care awaiting adoption ever since. A poor economy has slowed
adoption rates nationwide, but Hank's still hopeful.... he knows
his day will come.
Hank is a very striking boy. He's black with beautiful white
stockings on his front and back feet. He also has a gorgeous
white blaze on his chin and chest, and white on the very tip of
his always wagging tail!! Everywhere we go, people comment on
his rugged good looks... perhaps he's the George Clooney of the
Hank is still a young dog that's ready to make his mark on the
world. He's quite smart and soooo eager to please. Hank enjoys
playing chase with his brothers and retrieving his favorite
ball. In the afternoons, Hank and his brothers enjoy a leisurely
game of good old fashioned "fetch". One toss of the ball and
they're all running to see who can get to it first. When Hank
gets the ball, he very quickly brings it back to you in hopes
that you'll continue to toss it for them. He seems to never tire
of the competition, however he's always a good sport. Hank also
enjoys going for walks and taking in the view. Be careful
though, he's quite strong!! Hank uses a doggie door and enjoys
the freedom of being both inside and outside. He's used to
sleeping in his crate at night, along with his favorite bone
stuffed with cheese. Hank gets along great with people of all
ages and other dogs, so he's hopeful that one day he'll finally
get that FOREVER HOME he so deserves!!
Hank and Dakota (listed above) are brothers.

Dakota is from a large litter of mostly boys. He is completely
vaccinated and he's neutered. He's also been taking monthly
heartworm preventative since he was 3 months old. Dakota has the
most adorable personality ever!!! With so much charm and good
looks, he's sure to catch someone's eye.... if only it would
happen soon. You see, Dakota has been in foster care since he
was just under 6 weeks old. A slow economy coupled with the fact
that he's a big, black dog have all worked against Dakota and
his brothers. Take a few minutes to google "big black dog
syndrome" and learn the plight of these often overlooked dogs.
The statistics of black dogs being euthanized in shelters across
America are staggering. Black dogs just don't get adopted, plain
Dakota is quite the scholar. He learns things quickly and makes
sure the rest of us stick to the routine. He mastered the doggie
door in an instant and helped us teach everybody else how to use
it. He loves it because he really enjoys playing in the
backyard, but comes back inside when he's ready for a nap or a
treat. He loves to go for walks and meet new people. Dakota
sleeps in his crate at night and likes to have his bone in there
with him too, especially if it has a little cheese in it!! To
say that Dakota is the lively one of the bunch may be an
understatement. As a pup, he'd wait until everyone else was
settled in for a nap and then he'd decide to march on top of the
dog pile and methodically choose whose ears to pull or whose
tail to tug. It was simply sport to him!! And rest assured, he
still has that same playful nature. Dakota is a happy dog and
loves the company of people of all ages and also other dogs. If
you're looking for a shy dog, Dakota's not for you. But if you
want a playful, smart and devoted friend, he's a great choice.
Dakota won't disappoint!
Dakota and Hank (listed below) are brothers.
