Oh sweet, sweet Simon! What a sincere little man he is! As the smallest baby in the bunch (about 7.5lbs. at 8 weeks), this boy is gentle, quiet, and ALWAYS the first one to fall asleep. Simon is a total cuddle bug who is perfectly happy to curl up in your lap, against your back, or even in a little hidey-hole by himself. He is also super food-motivated, and is doing great with his basic commands and potty pad training (about 80% there!). He doesn’t let his chunky little Basset hound cankles slow him down – he’ll play tug of war or fetch with you from dawn to dusk! Simon is relaxed and laid-back enough to do very well with a brother or sister to pal around with, or as a solo pup. This lil’ nugget is hoping for a forever family to give ALL of his love and snuggles to! Please fill out an adoption application to meet our handsome wee-man! ♥

KNOWN HISTORY – Mama Maggie AND her 10 newborn babies were scheduled to die in a Houston shelter. Maggie was heartworm positive, and as such – no other rescue would take on the expense and time commitment to treat her. (HW does not transmit to babies)  P.R.A.R. stepped in and took Maggie and her kiddos, knowing the treatment for Maggie would be long and expensive, but it also saved eleven beautiful lives. When you adopt from PRAR – You make room in our program for us to save more families like this one. ♥ 

Won’t you please consider adding this precious, sweet, loving little boy to your family? If you are not quite ready to add a new member to your family, won’t you please #SHARE our adoptable kiddos on social media? You never know when your share is the share that will bring them home.

Simon’s adoption fee is $450 and includes neuter, microchip with free lifetime registration, age appropriate vaccinations, dewormers, and heartworm prevention started. He will come home with a hobo bag of things to help him get started in his new furever home. You can apply to welcome him into your family by completing an adoption application below.

Please understand that adopting from P.R.A.R. means FOREVER. Please do NOT apply if you do not have the time to properly train and exercise a dog (now and in the future) or if you do not meet the minimum adoption requirements for the dog in which you are applying.
