Why We Do What We Do

I’m Lefty. My dad named me after Willie Nelson’s song “Poncho and Lefty.” I’m shy, but once I warm up to you I’m the sweetest girl you’ll ever meet. Don’t let my lady-like crossed feet and gentle demeanor fool you though, I work with my sister Jezabell every day to chase all those good-for-nothing squirrels out of our yard.






My name is Jezabell. My mom calls me “Jelly Belly.” I’ve got lopsided ears that perfectly fit my personality. I’m a playful, fun loving, goofy little mutt that gets along with everyone, humans and dogs alike. My speed and agility let me climb trees and fences which keeps the neighborhood squirrels on their toes.






C1 (Cat 1)
The most important thing in C1’s world is getting snuggles from and drooling on every single person he sees. He doesn’t quite understand the word “no,” and will lick, nuzzle, and meow relentlessly until you give in. C1 is a lovable menace.

C2 (Cat 2)
C2 is a free spirit, only coming out to get attention when she really wants it. She prefers to spend her time deep in the Cedarcide warehouse, exploring the concrete jungle. A skateboard ride through the warehouse is like a safari, offering the chance to see the ever elusive C2.


This is Gumbo, AKA “The G,” AKA “G-Man,” AKA “Mr. Man.” Gumbo needed a new home and I had just bought my first home, so we were a perfect match! He loves short walks, splashing in his pool, and riding in the truck. He’s very soft and squishy, and likes his ears rubbed and his rear-end scratched. One of Gumbo’s favorite activities is checking the mail and retrieving the newspaper. Once he has the newspaper, he must tear it up a bit before he lets me have it.





Hi, I’m Gauge! I’m the lead dog of my pack of five. When I’m not calling the shots, I’m definitely sleeping. (Hey, I just really like naps!). I am also a proud rescue dog and two-time cancer survivor—my parents call me a miracle. Oh, they’re also quite obsessed with my velvety soft ears. (It’s weird but I still love them). My favorite treats are apples, peanut butter, carrots and broccoli, but don’t ask me to catch them because I’m terrible at it. Fun fact: I went vegetarian for almost a year!





Hi, my name is Remington (Remi for short). I was rescued in 2010. My dog parents were some combination of a bird dog and a pit bull, so I’m pretty unique. I prefer to spend most of my time outdoors— my happy place. Squirrel and bird watching are my specialities. I love my family and would lick them in the face all day if I could.





My name is John, AKA “Johnny Ringo,” AKA “Sweet Boy John.” I was adopted in 2011. Some people say I’m quirky, but I don’t really know what that means. I just don’t like to do stuff the way other pups do. Here are things I like to do: nibble on sheets, run zoomies across the yard, try to get the dogs on TV to notice me, sniff all of the places, and I really like to nap on my parents bed. (They have the softest pillows).





Hi! I’m Ellie, AKA “Ellie Bellie,” AKA “Ellie The Destroyer,” AKA “Ellie Pee Pot.” My parents rescued me in 2016 from a shelter that said I was a “bully” breed. But now I live the best life ever! I have four other siblings that are my bestest friends. Actually, to me, everyone I meet is my best friend. I love all animals and people. My mom says I’m one in a million. I don’t know how to count but I sure do love my parents. When I’m not play-wrestling with my friends, I’m in 100% snuggle mode.



My name is Pickles, AKA “The Pickles Man,” AKA “Big Head.” I was rescued from a shelter in 2017 when I was about two-years-old. My life before I was rescued wasn’t pretty, but I’ve mostly forgotten all about that. I love my life now, and I’m still learning all the fun things dogs get to do! Like snuggle on the couch, go for car rides, meet new animal friends and go on long walks. My parents say everyone who meets me falls in love with me and my giant, blocky head. My best friend in the world is Ellie and my favorite human is my dad. He and I picked each other at the shelter and we haven’t spent a day apart since. When I’m not following my humans around I like to nap on my yoga mat.



This is Brock, AKA “Brockman,” AKA “B-Man,” AKA “Special Guy.” He was born on the 4th of July, which I think makes him the best beagle. You can’t tell by looking at him but he has champion’s blood in him. Real papers and everything, but he stays humble. He’s the best to come home to, the worst on walks, and he loves other peoples’ food.


This is Willow, AKA “Willa Mae,” AKA “Goo Goo,” AKA “Princess Willow,” AKA “Fuzz Rocket,” AKA “The Little Wolf.” Ever look at something so beautiful and wonder how anyone could even be worth looking upon it? Well that’s Willow. She’s cute but don’t try to pick her up. Eight pounds of fuzz and fury, Willow is the long-haired Chihuahua all the dogs love to hate.








Guinness was rescued from the Denton animal shelter in June (he was originally found with three other siblings abandoned in the middle of the woods). He is now a healthy happy puppy who is very loyal and protective. Guinness is a little timid, but not destructive like his sister Stella.








Stella is a labrador and shepherd mix with a lot of sass. She’s really smart, knows tons of tricks, and loves rolling around in the mud from time to time. While she can be a handful, she’s always the nicest to be around and really gets along with other dogs.





Hi, I’m Beans, AKA, “Green Beans.” I was rescued in 2014 and had recently given birth to a litter of puppies, who all went to good homes. I’m a lovingly dominant force in my house. I love to play ball. I also hate squirrels but I’m not fast enough to catch one. I love my family, even my 2-year-old human sister.  








Ice Cream
Hi, I’m Ice Cream, AKA, “Ice,” AKA, “Cream.” I was rescued in 2013 from a local shelter. My dad says I’m his best friend. I think he’s my best friend too. In the morning, I like to pee on all of mommy’s plants and flowers. The rest of the day I just want to be close to my humans. Once a day, normally at night, I fight Tall Guy. He’s a young dog but I have to show him who’s boss. I always win.




Tall Guy
Hi, I’m Tall Guy, AKA “Talls.” I was rescued in 2015 as a puppy. My mom was rescued off the streets and thought to be a dachshund—whatever that means. I tower over my siblings. My dad says I’m the oldest puppy he’s ever known. I’m just a happy go lucky guy. I like to snuggle with my humans and play with my siblings but not too much. Every night Ice Cream tries to get me. He thinks he’s beating me up but I just like letting him win.






I was rescued by the Animal Rescue Foundation of Texas in 2017, along with my puppies. I was the best mom and made sure all my babies got adopted. Now I’m looking for a forever home. I’m currently shacking up with Beans, Ice Cream, and Tall Guy. I love to run and play all day. Tall Guy is my boyfriend, although he likes to play hard to get. I love to give kisses and weasel my way into extra lovins’ from my humans.
