Meet Stamford

Stamford is a 7 year old, 12 pound shih tzu, who came to Camo from Galveston County as a stray. Since being with us, Stamford has shown us such a sweet and cuddly personality! He loves to be around his person but will share his foster mom's lap with another dog. At night, he finds his place next to her lining up with two or three other dogs from the top of the bed to the bottom. Or, he is fine sleeping in a crate in her bedroom.

While this little guy has plenty of energy and loves his daily walk, he will happily take his afternoon nap. He gets along with all the other dogs in his foster home but can entertain himself playing with toys. He also likes people and loves the attention. Stamford has cataracts in both eyes but that does not hinder him at all. He gets around easily and comfortably as can be seen in the video of one of his walks. Stamford doesn’t let much hold him back and would love a home to call his own. He is fully vetted and ready to be adopted. He would definitely love to be part of a family where someone is home most of the time. A canine playmate around his size would also make him happy.

ALL adoptions require a completed application, vet check, home check and final contract. The application to adopt can be found at

Adoption fees are variable. Up to date vaccines, microchip, spay/neuter are included in the fee.

Once your application has been approved, we will put you in touch with the foster to set up a meet and greet. We are a foster based RESCUE, not a shelter. All of our dogs are in individual foster homes. We conduct veterinary and personal reference checks during the application approval process. We select the best applicant for each dog, based on the dog's needs.
For the safety of our small breed dogs and based on our past experiences, we will not place our dogs in homes with large breed dogs.

CAMO rescue is a 501c3 whose primary focus is rescuing small dogs from the euthanasia list from high kill TX shelters.
EIN # is 46-5486022
We rescue 800+ animals a year.
