Dolly is ready to jump on that bus and head to the PNW or East Coast and get her life started in her new family! She loves an adventure and is always down to make new friends (people or dog!) and explore with her favorite human

Dolly is around 9 months old and 45 lbs, she may be a big girl, probably around 65 lbs, and so beautiful! She is already potty trained and crate trained. She will need to keep up on her crate training, she would rather be at your side giving you cuddles and kisses!

Dolly is a great dog, very good temperament, and great around all dogs. She reads other dogs body languages well, she is playful and is good around people, no stranger danger. She is a higher energy dog, so will need a home with a fenced yard. She has moments where she can relax but also has that puppy energy and loves engagement and stimulation.

When She met a 10 year old kid at our rescue she did great with her and was very gentle when taking treats from the hand. She is a very confident girl and would be a great companion going out in public. She wants to be everyone's friend.

She lives with several other dogs in her foster home and does great with all of them. Although she would love a doggy sibling to play with, she would be fine as the only dog in the home as well. She would do good in doggy daycare or large groups of dogs with no issues. She is not a dominant player but can keep up with everyone just fine!

Dolly is smart and loves to learn. She would be great at dog sports, or just getting to use her mind with fun puzzles or toys. She is very food motivated and already knows sit and can walk on a leash well. She will want to go try and meet all the dogs though!

Dolly also lives with cats in her foster home and does great with them.

Dolly is a wonderful dog and will be a great companion. She will need someone who is used to puppies and higher energy breeds. She is extremely people and dog friendly so would be a great companion for someone who wants to take their dog out in public often and a great overall companion!

Dolly is currently fostered in Houston but can transport to the PNW and East Coast

Adoption Application- https://adopt.animalsfirst.com/animal/62cc8e128b02916730334440/65f4bd09dede60e0da01ac85

Available for adoption in NV, MT, CO,UT, ID, OR, WA, Canada, and now the East Coast! Our PNW dogs are brought to you in style by a beautiful USDA licensed semi-truck, equipped with air conditioning for comfort, two drivers, and 2 onboard attendants providing 24 hour care. Our East Coast route will travel in a private, air conditioned 3LP-run van transport. Pick up day is unforgettable! You will get to follow along on their journey through a private FB Event page, where you will see photos, have the opportunity to connect with other adopters, and receive updates and constant communication along the way. One of our Adoption Coordinators can help to find the closest transport pick up location to you!

The adoption fee is $800 and includes all vetting as recommended by our doctor: DAPP (2 to 4 depending on age and time in the program), Bordetella, Rabies vaccine (if old enough), multiple broad spectrum deworming treatments, spay/neuter, flea prevention, 2 months of heartworm preventative, extended medical such as dentals, eye surgeries, and orthopedic surgeries prior to adoption when suggested by our partner vets, a microchip with free lifetime registration, a high quality nylon Martingale collar for dogs over 4 months old, a health certificate deeming the pup healthy for travel, cost of transport*, and many priceless years of love and loyal companionship! *WE ARE TOLD THAT WE GO ABOVE AND BEYOND MEDICALLY. This is the feedback we tend to get, although we cannot guarantee perfect health. *To fully vet a dog in the PNW at many vets it would be upwards of $1,800 just to fix, vaccinate, chip, etc. The adoption fees charged by our rescue do not cover our expenses medically for each animal, but we offset costs with donations. Your adoption fee is considered a donation towards actual costs.

Why adopt from Three Little Pitties? The stray and animal overpopulation in the Greater Houston area is the highest in the nation. Statistics show that there are over 1 million homeless animals in this region alone. Three Little Pitties Rescue is a nonprofit dog and cat rescue that partners with the community to make a difference. Our mission is to reduce the homeless pet population through community outreach, free spay and neuter services, and saving all breeds of dogs and cats from the streets or animal shelters that oftentimes have no other option but to euthanize animals for space. This dog youve found online is lucky to be in our program, and even luckier to have you notice it! Three Little Pitties wants to set you and your new pet up for success! We know our dogs and we work hard to prepare them socially for adoption. We are a network of dedicated people who are heavily invested in seeing our animals thrive. From the moment they are accepted into our program, our Intake, Behavior & Medical teams prepare them for adoption by properly vetting, behaviorally assessing, and providing customized plans depending on the dogs needs. We seek to adopt to families who understand that these are rescue dogs and will require continued training efforts, but will be well on their way to being the best dogs that they can be! It doesnt stop there! Our adopters also receive these special perks: 30 day trial of pet insurance with Trupanion (must register within 24 hours of first vet appt.) A free private online dog training session with GoodPup plus low pricing for future sessions (approx $25 weekly for an 8 week course of one session per week) One free bonus toy in every BarkBox when signing up for their Super Chewer subscription plan 70% off of your first order of Fetch, a PNW based, organic fresh dog food loaf meal subscription plan Coupons for a fun visit to Petco Access to our exclusive FB Adopters page, where you can network for play dates, resources, and connect with other adopters that share their passion for their adopted pup!

We celebrated our 5 year anniversary this year! Through the combined efforts of all of our hardworking staff and volunteers, we have placed over 12,000 very lucky dogs and cats into amazing homes! By adopting from us, you save TWO lives! The pet you adopt, and you create an opportunity for another animal to be saved in that spot. Together, we can be heroes.
