In shelter Dog

Tomball, Texas, 77375
Pet name:
Terrier, Mixed
Black with Brown, Red, Golden, Orange or Chestnut
Mel was found in Melrose Park in Houston, known for being a dumping ground for unwanted dogs and cats. He entered Emmy's Hope Rescue in September 2020.

When Mel first came to the rescue, he was shy and scared, not trusting new people and dogs he met. Slowly, as he gained self-confidence, he successfully transitioned into his new environment. Mel is now lively and energetic, learning to play with his favorite canine friends. He loves to be petted and to cuddle with his favorite humans. He likes to play with toys and chew on bones. However, he is still learning how to respect cats.

Mel would love to find a special family to call his own. He needs a family that has the time and patience to spend helping him develop his social skills.

Estimated birth date:  August 2017

Approximate weight:  15 lbs.

If you would like to meet Mel, please call or text Stephanie at: 281-622-6549.
