My wife's aunt found an estimated 9mo. old GSD that was malnourished, fleas and possible ear mites a few days ago. We took the dog in so that it would keep out of this 100° weather here in Houston and from not getting ran over. We gave the pup a flea bath and applied front line and some ear mite medicine for its ears. My guess is the dog has been in the streets for a couple of weeks. Anyways we thought we would foster the dog, but my current GSD and small dog don't want anything to do with him. My female GSD follows my small male dog and reacts with aggression when my small male dog reacts. Needless to say we cannot keep him. We would like to offer him to a loving family that will give him a name, collar and chip him so that this doesn't happen again.

Please message me if you are interested. I would like to meet somewhere in the Houston area. We live in Cypress. I truly believe the owners will never be found nor do they seem to care since no signs were found in the area where it was found.

Check out Austin German Shepherd Rescue to see if they have room. I'll be in Houston at some point next week (probably Tuesday or Wednesday), and if the AGSDR has room, I can drive the dog back to Austin with me.

I'm in the Pearland area and willing to assist in transport as well, if you find a rescue with room.

We did take him to the vet and unfortunately no chip :mad:


Second Chance German Shepherd Rescue had posted our Facebook post to the Austin rescue as well. We haven't heard anything back yet.

On meetup.com there is an Austin GSD group. Maybe post there? Also, there is a place called Doghouse Drinkery & Pub in Leander- very popular place with a well-trafficked FB page, maybe post there, too?

OP, make sure you check with your local animal control before giving him to anyone (person or rescue). The law varies from location to location, but most have some period of time before you can legally give a dog you find to someone else. It might be as little as 24 hours or as long as 30 days.

If it were my choice, I'd take him in in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, I am only allowed one GSD at my apartment :(. buttttttt I'll continue to help in ANY way I can!

He is stunning. How could anyone abandon such a beauty. :(

Thank you for taking him in and I hope you find him a loving home or a rescue that will do that for him. :)

I'll definitely let you know.
We have a couple of "fosters" that may turn into adopters. We are currently looking interviewing them to make sure they are good fit for this pup this evening.
it's just tough for us right now, due to my other two dogs that aren't very happy with a "jumpy" puppy right now. We have to have the pup on a leash at all times to make sure no blood is drawn, brought on from my other GSD.

I am really happy that we rescued this pup from the streets of Houston and wish that my other two dogs would accept him, but they are just old and cranky. :D. If my dogs would be accepting into our "pack", I would seriously think about keeping him. But they are not.
My wife and I just want to make sure I give this little guy a great place to live somewhere.

We have found a "foster" parent for the time being. This kind lady is only minutes away from us. The foster has two Great Danes that the little pup just adores. And in return the Great Danes love this little guy. They immediately started playing and were enjoying each others company. We still need a "furever" home for this little guy, so if anyone here on the forums knows of a great and loving place for this little guy, please be sure to let me know.
We are networking amongst all of our families, craigslist, facebook, forums, etc......

thanks again to everyone here.

We love this place. :)
