Meet Tripp

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.
Meet Tripp! Tripp and his sister were rescued from an high kill shelter in Texas. He is a terrier mixed with other breeds unknown, 20 pounds, estimated to be about 6 or 7 months old and he is eagerly to find his forever home. Tripp is a curious, rambunctious puppy with a face that melts hearts with his big brown eyes and a slight underbite (so cute!)
Tripp loves his foster mom and follows her around the house. If you can't see him, be assured he's stealthily slipped away right underfoot and is happily up to something. He loves his toys, treats and chew toys - especially his chew toys. Tripp can be sneaky about running off with his big foster brother's toys, though, and will hide them deep in the folds of his bed. On occasion, I've even found missing socks and other pieces of laundry tucked in his bedl!
When he's winding down he can be very snuggly and wants to be touching his human. He loves his foster big brother pup, too', following him around like a little shadow. He loves to chase, frolic and wrestle with his 75 pound foster when they are out in the back yard together. As he's met more dogs, he's gotten less wary and more friendly. After he's introduced to other dogs - big or small, his tail is wagging and he's ready to play with them, too.
Tripp is such a smart little guy and has aced "sit"", "down", "wait" and has almost mastered "come", and "shake". He loves to explore, has lots of energy and wouldn't mind at all if his daily walks lasted all day! And he's so good in the car.
He is very treat motivated and that makes training pretty easy Since he's being fed in his kennel, he doesn't mind going in it when his foster leaves. He sleeps through the night curled up on his bed next to his kennel, or he'll nestle in his kennel through the night, too.. He is good about going potty outside but is still learning house training. He's been doing well and is getting the hang of it, especially when he's on his schedule and is let out regularly. His new family will need to continue that training with him.
I've not seen Tripp around cats, yet, so I'm not sure how he'd do around them. Tripp is not around children in his foster home but has met them at adoption events and happily greeted all with wiggles, wagging tail and lots of kisses. I think he'd love to live in a busy home with children and or another dog to play with. Trip would be at the top of the list if the list wasn't in alphabetical order! This little guy is microchipped, neutered, and ready to make his way into your heart! If you think Tripp is the perfect fit, please put in your application on our website at
