Meet Jerry the Big Goofy Family Man

Who weighs 56 lbs but is some how bringing a ton of love and all the fun? Jerry! Only one year old, Jerry has already discovered the secret to happiness, and makes sure to share it with everyone he meets! With all rescues, exact breed and age are always a best-guess and cannot be guaranteed, but with Jerry, his looks have our best-breed-guessers enthusiastically debating. We currently suspect Black Mouth Cur and Pittie. We can tell you with confidence that he is a good time and even better company.


If we are going to start with just looks I want to highlight his expressive face! Maybe its because he practically has eyebrows and his forehead wrinkles up so perfectly, but he has a face that shares so much! That face only brings out his gorgeous color and shiny coat. Then there are his eyes, lined with black but the color of a golden sunset. Can you tell that I spent just a little too long looking at him?

His personality is happy, friendly and goofy, with people and other dogs, and even our house-cat Tom, though the cat didnt like Jerrys offers to play. He does get excited when the opportunity to play with other dogs is available, so an equally playful dog would be the best in-home-companion-pet for him. Jerry loves playing with toys including chasing a ball and playing catch with a stuffie. And even though he has energy for play he is satisfied easily and knows the importance of taking breaks to soak up the sun and get a little belly rub.

Jerry has great basic leash manners, better than most 1 year old dogs and will benefit from some polishing but comes pre-loaded with a great base. You could take him on a walk straight away and he would make you proud. If you live in a walkable neighborhood, he is going to be a regular on the block and may even be the first one who gets greeted by the neighbors. Thanks to his size and quiet demeanor, Jerry has potential to be an apartment boy, but only if you promise him walks and a few good toys to keep him company. If you have a yard, be prepared to watch him bounce and spin around it! He gets a bounce in his step when he is doing a happy run and it can even turn into a fun little spin when he is ready to play.

So if you are looking for one golden brown, smokey-eyed good boy, your search is over. You found him! We call him Jerry but you can call him yours!

If you have any questions about Jerry or would like us to test him for a specific setting or detail, please be in touch! We can make most anything happen to ensure he is the correct fit for you and your life!

Please email kristin@threelittlepittiesrescue.org with any questions.

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.
