We saved Bitsy (first photo) from the BARC shelter in Houston. RPM (Rescued Pets Movement) transported her to us. Bitsy had two homes after we got her but has not been good with dogs larger than her. She loves cats better than dogs. Bitsy finally has gotten her forever home. She is a 25-lb. Staffie. Meet Bitsy:

Buddy (second photo) walked onto our shelter grounds a few years ago and made himself at home. He has become best friends with Frieda, who is very shy. We have five dogs who are very shy and can walk where they want at the shelter and sleep in warm places at night. We would like to adopt Buddy and Frieda together. Meet them:
