Houston, we have a problem: this boy is homeless most of his life!


The basics

  • My name is Houston
  • On my last birthday, I was 4
  • I am a boy
  • I've been homeless since August 27, 2017

The good stuff

  • My best trick is sit and shake! Okay that's two tricks, but I'm very talented.
  • Me in three words: smart, active, cheerful
  • How I feel about other critters: I'd prefer to be your one and only pet!
  • My absolute favorite thing to do in the world is take really fast walks, jogs, and learning new tricks! A guy can have three favorite things, m'kay?
  • This is what I dream about when I dream about my perfect person or family: a home - period! I've been at Special Pals since Hurricane Harvey, which in dog years was a really long time ago. In fact it's a long time in human years, too. The staff named me after our city because I'm Houston strong - just like them! Typical of my Chow-mix personality, I like to get into mischief when I'm bored. But I respond very well to training and love learning new things. Sometimes I'm a smarty pants and will talk back while other times I'm a little shy. Just give me some room and a lot of things to stay busy and I'm a happy camper! An active home would be ideal for me. You know, a place I can run, keep learning new things, and follow you around because I'll be your BFF!
