The aptly named Tex was already in Texas before the hurricane, and we offered to help our friends in TX make room for the influx of dogs that will need their help when the month-long stray hold is up after Harvey. Tex was a perfect angel riding in the car and staying in a hotel overnight. His long natural tail wagged across several states. He is about 2 years old, and he’s a big puppy with little vocab and desire to learn more. He’s a big strong guy, and he proves it on the leash. Tex just arrived, so we are working on his basic skills. The sending shelter said he was dominant with other male dogs, so he’d be better with a female. He failed the cat test and has no history with kids, but he might be a little too rambunctious at the moment for young kids. Until his leash skills improve, he’d prefer a fenced yard for exercise and puppy. During his photo shoot, he was a big dork who tried to make us laugh. He’s a good boy who has the potential to be even better.  Unfortunately, he is heartworm positive, so he will need to be treated, which will take at least 2 months. If you are able to foster through his treatment, please let us know.
