Meet Valentina The Sweetest Dog at the Rescue

Valentina is a once-in-a-lifetime perfect dog. Shes the perfect size around 42 pounds, of a lovely temperament- a sweet 2 year old girl with a charming sense of humor and a huge goofy smile! She has this beautiful, show-worthy soft coat that makes us suspect Australian Kelpie as her breed, but of course, with all rescue dogs, exact age and breed are always a mystery.



Valentina is joy incarnate, shes curious and exploratory, playful and snuggly, and she has an unmatched fondness for people. Valentinas sense of humor is immediately noticeable in her silly faces and happy dances. She likes to splay her toes out as far as they go, and take these hilarious exaggerated, wide, fast steps- you can see her happy dances in her video!

Valentina is a gentle player that takes great care of her stuffies, a gentle treat-taker and a hugger. Shes a very considerate and affectionate girl! Valentina loves people, and does great in public spaces, charming everyone around her. Valentina is great with children and loves to play with other dogs, but does best playing with one dog at a time. Valentina would do well in a home with the companionship of another relaxed dog like her!

If you're the type to have people come over frequently then Valentina is your girl. She loves people and knows no stranger.

Whether you're active and adventurous or prefer quiet times at home, Valentina is flexible and eager to adapt to your lifestyle. The most important thing to Valentina is that she gets the correct amount of belly rubs in a day.

If you're searching for the perfect addition to your family, look no further than Valentina the most loving, gentle, sweet girl. We are willing to test this dog with anything you need us to in order to ensure shes the perfect match for you! We can make anything happen! Just let us know.

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 provide weekly socialization programs for our dogs through playgroups and group leash training classes available to all dogs in our adoption program, and Doggy Sleepover, Doggy Day Out, and Ambassador programs for our boarding dogs. There is a professional dog trainer on staff to provide support for our fosters and dogs, and an off-site dog trainer for dogs that need more extensive behavior modification. This helps us learn deeply about every dog, prepare them for adoption, and ultimately match them with loving families. 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.
