Hello, my name is Houston. I am a very quiet, sweet, and loving adult male Cavalier King Charles who loves attention!! Hee, hee!! I also enjoy eating (especially dried beef heart treats), playing with my toys (or anything else laying around…like socks…tee, hee, hee), snuggling in some towels or nice cozy blankets, cuddling on the couch with my family (even the cats), following foster mom around, going on car rides to visit new places, and I really love meeting new people especially since my large head and giant paws always seem to win them over!!

I am good with kids and other dogs; I do my business outside, I am crate trained, and for the most part, I do very well with the leash if my body doesn’t freeze up on me. That said, I get tired quickly and will start limping so I cannot walk for more than a mile. I can navigate a single step but am not able to go down multiple stairs and I am still learning how to respond to my name and other commands.

I really am an easy-going guy who is simply looking for patience and unconditional love with a furever family who promises to NEVER give up on me! My heart is overflowing with love that I have always dreamed of sharing with a special family! Will YOU please be my new family?? I promise that I will love you more than you could EVER possibly imagine!! Love & cuddles, Houston

Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared. Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans. In turn, they require another companion dog and/or a fenced in yard in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a particular dog whose bio states those needs and do not currently have them, please understand that your home might not be the right fit.  Please use the filter on our Adoptable Dogs page to find the perfect match for your home.
