Interested in adopting a pet — or just gazing at some delightful doggies up for adoption? There are dozens of great dogs up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Houston.

Animal shelters and pet rescue groups work hard to care for unhoused pets and connect them to loving homes. Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of dogs currently available for adoption.

(Details like pet availability, training, vaccinations and other features are based on data provided by Petfinder and may be subject to change; contact the shelter for the latest information.)


Miley, Labrador retriever mix

Miley is a female Labrador retriever mix currently housed at Honoring Hope and Faith Rescue, Inc.

Miley plays well with others, and she's happy to keep company with kids, dogs or cats. She has had all of her shots, and she is spayed. She's already house-trained.

Here's more from Miley:

Hi! My name is Miley! I'm a black lab mix female. I am very active and love to run and go for walks. I know some manners like sit, paws (shake); I walk on a leash/harness; I am crate and potty trained but I am very active and need to be taken to the dog park to run or maybe run with my mom/dad. I am working on not jumping on people out of excitement but it's so hard because I love people! I do well with kids but I'd do better with older children (teens) and with an active family. I LOVE to run in the backyard, cuddle, jump, sleep, eat snacks and food and be part of a family.

Betty Boop is a beautiful girl with a beautiful soul! She is around 3 years old. Betty Boop gets along with all the dogs; she does well in a crate and she's 100% house trained. We would say that's a trifecta!

Tigger, mixed breed

Tigger is a sweet male mixed breed dog currently residing at Friends For Life Animal Shelter & Sanctuary.

Tigger likes to socialize, and he's happy to keep company with other dogs. Fear not: He is already house-trained. Tigger is neutered, and he has had all his shots.

Here's what Tigger's friends at Friends For Life Animal Shelter & Sanctuary think of him:

This handsome boy gets along great with other dogs and loves the outdoors. Tigger comes with all the high-end features! He is house trained, does not get up on furniture, barks very little (only to alert) and is used to being put on a leash. A perfect home for Tigger would be one without small children or cats, preferably with a yard, and an owner who has time to play with him. He is outgoing and playful when you want him to be and he is a lazy lump of love when you just want to lounge.

Imagine having a big dog that is always on guard. Imagine that dog with a strong bark that'll deter bad people from approaching your home. Imagine a dog that is always happy to see you.

What's not to love about Hobo? He truly is a sweetheart. He wouldn't hurt a fly and he's wonderful with children.
