Hi! My name is Fezco. 

My owners dumped my friend Rue and I at a gas station in Justin, Texas after we had puppies. We were trying to make friends with all the people there, but no one stopped to pay attention. It was getting ready to storm and a nice lady from Apollo saw us and brought us to the rescue.  

The staff and volunteers say I am very loving and handsome. I am also very strong and sometimes forget it, but the staff has been teaching me how to be gentler. I love cuddles and walks. I would love an active family to go hiking with. My perfect home is one where I would get lots of exercise! Since I sometimes forget how strong I am I need a home with older kids, so I don’t accidentally hurt them. I’m working on leash walking, but reports from the staff recently say I’m doing great! I love other dogs, but in a new environment I would need slow and proper introductions to new friends. I love my friend Rue and it’d be great if we were adopted together, but as long I’m getting lots of love and attention I’ll do fine with a family of my own. Fezco is approximately 90lbs, born in 2020, and is located at the rescue center in Justin, Texas.

This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
