Hi, my name is Xena and I was surrendered to SCP because my owner could no longer take care of me. I had a rough start where my previous owner wasn't paying attention to me and I had to have emergency surgery to remove an embedded collar so for the near term my new family must be willing to walk me on a harness while my neck heals. I'm now looking forward to a new family that will give me all the attention and love I need. I'm still young, estimated DOB 11/9/19 and I have Rottweiler in my background so I'm going to be a BIG, smart beauty! I'm dog, cat and kid-friendly who just wants to show my love and may get excited and be overpowering for small children or cats not used to big, active puppies. I'm just a puppy and can get into a lot of trouble so you'll need to be willing to give me lots of gentle guidance, so I can learn all those big dog things, like how to behave in a house, what a crate is for, how to walk on a leash without pulling, and all those verbal commands every dog should know. I may even treat people like I treat my sibling with rough play or decide that new pair of shoes or a table leg would make a great chew toy, so a lot of appropriate toys should be in my future. The good news is that with the right training and LOTS of love, I'll be the best addition to your family ever and your best bud. If you are interested in me, please send an email to to see if I'll be at the Clear Lake Petco Adoption Event and we can have a great meet and greet to see if we are a match made in heaven.
Adopter for this dog must reside in the immediate Houston/Galveston area and be at least 25 years old. A home visit may be required prior to this dog going to any home.
The adoption fee for a dog is $190 (or $245 for puppies) which includes State of Texas sales tax.
Adoptions are held on Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Clear Lake Petco, 2410 Bay Area Boulevard. All dogs are microchipped, on heartworm protection, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, de-wormed and treated for fleas. Since all of our dogs are in foster homes, an individual dog may not be at our weekly Adoption Event due to conflict with a foster's schedule. If you are interested in meeting a particular dog, please send an email to so that the Dog Coordinator can let you know if the dog will be at the Saturday Adoption Event at Petco. If you just want to meet some great dogs looking for their forever home, please come visit with us on Saturday!
