Meet Sicilia (foster to adopt)

Sicilia/2 years/45 lbs/HW+
Sicilia (aka Cupcake, aka CiCi) is an absolute doll of a dog. After some initial timidness, she loves absolutely everyone she meets. Shy and scared at the City of Houston animal shelter (BARC), it took CiCi about 4 hours to come out of her shell and start to show off her goofy, willing-to-please personality. And now that she's comfortable in her foster home, she has blossomed into a happy, wiggly girl.
Sicilia is great with other dogs after slow introductions and tends to take the lead from her foster's two owned dogs. She is completely uninterested in cats and tends to just stay far away from them, and she loves children a TON. She does do a small amount of jumping when she's excited but is easily corrected.
At home, Sicilia can be left loose throughout the day with frequent potty breaks. She was, after all, a street dog, so learning there are specific places to potty is still a work in progress. However, she's great about going outside and doing her business quickly. She loves toys she can chew on -- well, really anything she can chew on, so maybe hide those fancy shoes and leather belts. She also sleeps loose at night. She does have a bit of separation anxiety when her foster mom and dad leave for a few hours -- hey, this might be her first family ever! -- so she should be crated when home alone. We've found that she is pretty intent on getting out of regular kennels, so a steel or impact crate is best to keep her safe and sound until you get back home.
Sicilia loves beds and blankets and has figured out that the couch is the BEST place for a snooze. She's medium energy, happy to go for a good walk (and great on leash) or content to Netflix and chill at home. She'd do great at doggie parks or out on the town at a dog-friendly pub. As long as she's with people, she's happy as a clam!

She is spayed, up to date on vaccines and preventatives and is heartworm positive. The rescue will cover her heartworm treatment at the rescues vet.

She is part of our foster to adopt program. The rescue will cover her getting vetted by our veterinarians during the foster period, if additional vetting is needed. If it is a love connection the foster gets first dibs to adopt. Please fill out an application or email us at if you are interested in fostering her. Typically the adoption fee is $350 but if you foster and decide to adopt we show our gratitude by providing a $50 discount plus her vetting.
