Elvis The Nature Lover gets along well with other dogs. His ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. He's neutered and vaccinated. Have no fear: He's already house-trained.
Notes from Elvis The Nature Lover's caretakers:
Meet Elvis! Elvis is a gorgeous 3-year-old, 60-pound pit bull hound mix with a stunning black brindle coat and mask. He was found as a stray after Hurricane Harvey. It took some time, but with the help of his very dedicated foster mom and trainer, Elvis is a brand-new dog. He loves all humans, including children! He loves spending time in the yard but is also a great inside and craves cuddles. Elvis will gladly chill out and chew a bone, while you watch TV, as long as he gets enough exercise and mental stimulation.

Jazzy is a lovable male Goldendoodle dog staying at IDOG Rescue, Inc.
Jazzy gets along well with cats, dogs and children. He has had all of his shots, and he is neutered. He's already house-trained.
Here's what Jazzy's friends at IDOG Rescue, Inc. think of him:
Jazzy is a 6-year-old male goldendoodle who was surrendered due to his anxiety and fear toward the men in the home. Are you looking for a dog that can go anywhere, meet anyone and do anything, all the time? If so, stop reading. Jazzy is not the dog for you. On the other hand, if you’re looking for an introverted guy that loves his momma and, once he trusts you, will give you his whole sweet heart, Jazzy is your guy.

Notes from Sammy:
Hi. I’m Sammy! I’m 4 years old and a big, strong boy, approximately 70 pounds. I am completely house trained and love to get my daily treats. I know how to sit, stay and to lay down on command. If you love to garden, I promise to chase all the squirrels out of your yard so they won’t get your tomatoes. Don’t forget how strong I am. Because of this. I feel like I need a pack leader that’s stronger than me. I love to do zoomies around the yard everyday and play with toys.

More from Kiki:
Hi There! My name is Kiki and my foster parents tell me I'm goofy and clumsy, but very lovable. I love to cuddle and wag my tail and to be petted. I've learned to sit, shake, lay down, roll over and wait (for treats) and I'm eager to learn more. I'm basically a big love bug and I always want to be by your side. I'd love a big yard to play in and I would love someone who wants to throw my Chuck-It ball for hours and hours.
