Rescue Dog of the Week

Huckleberry (aka “Huck”) is a gentle pit bull or staffie mix with gorgeous charcoal gray markings and piercing yellow eyes. Huck is about 13 to 15 months old, heartworm negative, fully vaccinated, 57 lbs, neutered, and microchipped. A well-behaved, laid back boy with a silly, playful side, Huck loves to army crawl on his belly and then roll over to demand belly rubs. Don’t let the intense expression fool you..this boy is a lover! Huck is currently in a training program learning basic obedience.

Like all rescue dogs, Huck has a back story: he was dumped with Sawyer, his Blue Tick Coonhound buddy. Just like the characters of Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer, these buddies had a big adventure; after being dumped, they managed to remain together on the road for over a week. Frozen, starved, flea infested, scared, treated poorly by area residents, dodging coyotes and feral hogs in neighboring woods — it only took a cold hot dog and the view of a warm back seat for these boys to let a passerby lift them into the car. Exhausted, they fell sound asleep in the back seat for 4 hours. At the boarding kennel, they slept curled up together. Sadly, his best buddy Sawyer passed away unexpectedly so Huck must have his next adventure without his friend. Poor Huck is missing his buddy, and really needs a home that will love and care for him forever. Huck would do best in a home with no cats or small animals; he is fine with medium to large dogs.

Huck is being fostered in Houston, Texas, and is courtesy listed through Vision Hills Sanctuary in Austin, Texas. If you’re interested in adopting Huck, check out his information here, or email You can also check out his story on YouTube and join his fan page on Facebook.
