is so named because of her markings! =)
She looks like a Reesie's Peanut Butter Cup
after you have bitten off a piece... All
dark and chocolaty on each side of that
tan/orangey peanut butter inside! This
Reesie has been nibbled many times! LOL!!
This sweet, sweet girl is very shy at first,
but will approach and ask to be petted after
she's sure of you. We think she
was mistreated because of her submissiveness
and because she is still learning to trust
people. She is now finding out that she can
safely come through a door, even if a human
is standing there. She uses the dog door
like a pro, and she would rather run than to
eat - literally. We believe that she is a
Whippet mix. At approximately 45 pounds,
she is sleek, lithe, and unbelievably fast!
Reesie runs for the sheer JOY of
running! She responds with immediate speed
when you call her name - just so happy that
someone is summonsing her! She gets along
famously with the other dogs in the home and
is very affectionate to her foster parents,
often jumping on the bed for a snuggle first
thing in the mornings. At approximately a
year-and-a-half old, Reesie has been
spayed, vaccinated, microchipped,
and housetrained. Reesie is looking for a
forever home with a family who will give her
time to continue to grow aware that she will
no longer be abused, and someone with a big,
secure yard for her to run in - a couple of
squirrel-laden trees would be just the
cherry on top! Come On!! Everyone loves a

is a Great Pyrenees mix who we think is about 5
years old. He was in pretty bad shape when he came
to us, but now he's gained weight, has been fully
vaccinated, neutered and thoroughly spoiled with
loads of love to erase his memory of the horrible
life he had before. This sweet, affectionate guy is
housetrained, will sit for treats and he'll give you
his paw without your having to ask. He's friendly,
but protective of his 'flock,' and gives love and
devotion that is absolutely unparalleled! Ryan is
totally non-destructive and he doesn't bark
unnecessarily or dig. He's attentive to you and is
very responsive to praise or reprimand. He LOVES
his chew toys to be stuffed with peanut butter when
you are leaving, and will take treats from your hand
with a very gentle mouth.

Shelly is a little ShihTzu mix, we think! She
was rescued by a Good Samaritan from the parking lot of a
Shell Station...thus, the name Shelly! Little
Shelly was also dubbed, "Lil'Ugly" during those first months
in BHS Foster Care because, frankly, she WAS a little Ugly!
When she was found she was suffering from severe mange and
malnutrition. She scared, hungry and oh, so lost.
About half her body was totally hairless, and she was so
thin you could almost see right through her!
But, after months of recuperation in the BHS Foster Care
Program, this little darling has emerged
as a beautiful, spunky, intelligent little DIVA, and we
wouldn't have it any other way! She has now grown a
beautiful coat, been fully vaccinated,
spayed and housetrained.
She loves everyone and everything!
She has no idea that she's
but she KNOWS that she's adorably cute!
OK, Shelly may be a tad-bit spoiled, but who's complaining??
If you think you can provide this little darling a safe and
loving home where all the spoiling will continue, please
apply to adopt today.
However, she will not be delivered until after the new year to
avoid the double confusion of going to a new home and all
the festivities that are likely to be taking place.

his Mom, Lisa, has Ellie who was also adopted from BHS over a year ago.
Lisa's husband, Pete and another son, Michael await Shelly's arrival at
home in Kingwood.
is a little Scottish Terrier whose persona
is much larger than his physical being of 18
pounds. This little character has been a
fascination to watch develop into full
Terrier mode! He's a young boy and his
perspective on life and the world around him
is awe inspiring! =) Smitty has been
fully vaccinated, neutered, and is receiving
regular prevention to keep his heart free
of heartworms. He is cute beyond
description and has learned to negotiate the
dog door that is WAY too high off the floor
for him! He's tenacious and spirited, but
can be sooo affectionate, too. He behaves
like a cat often doing circles around you
legs, (er, make that ankles) rubbing against
you, and stalking some stationary object
only to back away a few steps and then make
a running leap onto it. Watching him
discover himself in the mirror or any
glass-fronted door is a total hoot! He
barks at that little doggie in the window,
and tries to bump noses with it. Although
Scotties are known (and bred) to dig on
search of vermin, Smitty has not dug or been
destructive at all at the foster home. He
gets along fine with the other dogs in the
home, although he has a vicious
sounding growl that he emits while he is
running in the other direction when someone
has had enough of his antics! We have
learned that living with a Scottie is a new
and fun experience! We think the breed
probably isn't for everyone, but for those
who love Terriers, here is a real
prize-winner! If you want to add a little
spark to your life, this little guy is for
you. Apply to adopt Smitty today! He's
Smitty with his
is a looker, isn't he? He appears to be a pointer mix with all
his blue ticked coat, but whatever he is, Tinker as beautiful as
a painting and those golden eyes are mesmerizing. He is a
snuggler, but LOVES to play chase with his housemates.
Actually, Tinker is just about the complete package! He's
unique in appearance, already neutered, housetrained,
leash-trained, sits for 'cookies,' gets along beautifully with
other dogs, affectionate to people, uses the dog door like a pro
and is missing only one important component - a loving forever
home! This beautiful dog belongs in a home! Do you
think he'd be a good fit in yours? There's no exaggeration
when we say that Tinker is a perfect boy...Now, to find the
perfect home for him!

Thor was living on the street for at least 3 weeks. People
were seeing him come back to a particular street corner
every evening, (no doubt the corner where he was dumped) but
no one could catch him. Some would put food out for him,
and some would chase him away. He never knew what to expect,
except that he expected his owners to come back for him
every single day. Thor was finally rescued after a lot of
tenacious effort on the part of a BHS volunteer. Because
he is so gorgeous, someone who had been watching his plight,
said they would take this poor dog, if we could catch him.
But, as is so often the case, when it came time to take him
- they began to remember reasons that they just couldn't!
=\ Thor deserves better than that anyway, and we will find
that special home for him! He has been wormed, fully
vaccinated and neutered; he also does well on leash and will
sit for his meals and his treats. Thor gets along great
with the other dogs in the foster home and despite all that
he's been through, there doesn't appear to an ounce of
meanness in his Big, Sweet Heart! He loves to tug the big
ball out by the pool, and will chase it down when you kick
it. He's fast as the wind, which is amazing considering he's
such a big boy. He was so skinny when he was rescued, but
is now well rounded out at approx 85 pounds. Thor is a
gentle giant, if ever there was one! =) If this handsome
dog sounds like the one for you, please apply to adopt him
and look forward to loving and showing off your special
boy. There is no doubt that you will receive many years of
love and devotion from this magnificent creature.
TINKER & BELLE
These two precious Dachshund/Chihuahua mixed babies were
rescued from flood waters back in late July.
They are brother and sister and, together, weighed less than
10 pounds! They had only one another to depend on in those
first couple of months before they were rescued, and they
are very bonded. We will not adopt them
separately. Tinker & Belle are now approximately 5 months
old, de-wormed, treated and cleared of Demodectic mange,
fully vaccinated & spayed/neutered. They are housetrained
to pee-pads, now, but the transition to being fully
housetrained shouldn't be too hard. Belle, the female, has
shorter legs and is a little stockier than her brother. She
is the leader; and where she goes, so goes Tinker. Tinker
has longer legs, a leaner body and sports a tiny white flash
on his forehead. They both now have sleek, shiny, reddish
coats covering their elongated bodies, and a zest for life
that will warm your heart. These puppies are beyond precious
and we know we will get many applications. However, only
applicants who wish to adopt both puppies need apply. They
love each other way too much to separate them.
Tinker & Belle with their new family!
