Moonpie, the Southern Belle, Black Mouth Cur Mix

Moonpie is one of the happiest girls around when with her people. If you recall, photos of her in the park showed a sad-faced girl with her head down. She LOVES people, and other dogs. She is a pette girl at about 45 lbs and knee high. We t...hink she is Black Mouth Cur Mix, and loving. She will make someone a good pet, and would be a great therapy dog also, she is very calm. Contact to meet or adopt Moonpie!

Hercules (Herc) the Staffie/Dalmatian Mix

Herc is a newcomer to the Backstreets. He is about 1-2 years old intact male mix. He is big and solid, about 60 lbs. He is a little skittish and will not let us get to close. But he is regal looking and not in bad shape. His weight is good. He has a serious face.

He needs the whole "Backstreet Treatment" which includes vetting, neutering, treatment for parasites, fleas, and rehoming. perhaps he will need some socialization. We have not been able to get too close to him yet. Contact to meet or help HERC.

Garbo, the Blonde Bombshell (Pit Mix)

Poor Garbo was dumped in the "Zone" a couple of days ago. She is sleeping in a drain pipe, and is extremely timid. She is so afraid of people, someone must have been mean to her. She is lovely, but underweight and overbred. We will work on getting her to trust us, and get her any medication she needs for mange or fleas/heartworms. She will eventually need a foster/rescue/adopter as we are full now. She is about 40-45 lbs and will need to be spayed before adoption. Contact to help Garbo.

Lotus, the dumped Pitty Puppy

Update: Our Little girl Lottie is making GREAT progress! She went to the vet last week for vaccines and additional medication for her severe demodex. She has peach fuzz growing on her little body! She is a whopping 40 lbs now, and is loving life! She loves to play and will be a stunning blue pitty when she gets all better. She can use some donations for her ongoing care. She lives with a foster who feeds and waters her while Emily comes by daily to give her meds. What a lucky girl! Contact or click on the donate button on this page to help Lottie! She is about 4 mos old.

Lady the Golden Mix

Lady is a beautiful, young female (8-10 mos), found living in a vacant lot, probably dumped by some loser. A neighbor who used to work for an animal shelter was kind enough to feed and water her, but could not afford her vet care. He made an agreement to foster her through the end of her mange treatment, and then we will post her in the meantime for rescue or adoption. Lady is very sweet and smart, but we worry because she runs in the street a little too freely. Please contact us at to help Lady...

Tinkerbelle:New Backstreet Doggie

Tinkerbelle was found tied up, in heat, and surrounded by males in the Minnetex area of Houston. Ms. Emily offered to get her spayed, and the man said "Keep her"... so Tinkerbelle is our rescue now. She is about 15 lbs, chi mix. Sweet but skittish at first. She and Peter Pan are buddies. She will be ready for adoption soon, please help spread the word as we do not have many chihuahua contacts! Contact to help Peter and Tinkerbelle...

Peter Pan: New Backstreet Doggie

Peter Pan was spotted outside of a man's yard in the Minnetex area of Houston, TX. He looked to have been shoved out, because there were two others inside the yard that looked just like him. The main claimed he wanted Peter, but then reneged on the promise to keep and care for him. So now Peter belongs to Backstreet... Rescue and needs a rescue/foster/forever home. He is darling, about 10-12 lbs, maybe a year old or slightly older, and very sweet. His is probably MinPin& Chi mix. He came to Backstreet with his BFF Tinkerbelle. Contact Emily if you can help Peter at

Lady: New Backstreet Dog

Lady is another new Backstreet dog we have discovered lately in the Minnetex are...a. She is a stray and has a small amount of mange she is being treated for. She is being fed by a good Samaritan who cannot take her in. She is probably a Golden Retriever or Golden Mix...she is young, not even a year old. If anyone can share Lady with some Golden groups, she is a sweet little darling girl who deserves a chance at getting off the streets...More on Lady as we get her healthy... she loves attention from people and is smart as a whip, as she runs to Emily's car trunk and waits for it to be opened... contact to help Lady.
