Introducing the Real Shelter Dogs of Texas

These dogs will dance in your farts. (That's a reference from The Real Housewives of Dallas. Really.)

Of all the Real Housewives franchises, The Real Housewives of Dallas may actually talk about dogs the most—or at the very least, they talk about dog poop the most. Even beyond LeeAnne Locken’s beagles and animal-based philanthropy, the rest of the show is steeped in dog poop—most infamously, the fake dog poop hat that Brandi Redmond wore to the Mad Hatters charity event. And you know what they say: Where’s there’s dog poop, there’s dogs.

And Dallas sure does have dogs. The puppers from today’s installment of Real Shelter Dogs come from Dallas Pets Alive!, a volunteer-driven, non-profit rescue group based deep in the heart of Texas. Their main focus is to pull pets from the rescue list at a local kill shelter and foster them until they are placed in their forever homes. It is their mission to one day make Dallas a no-kill city, and as such, they have programs that focus on neutering stray cats and helping families that can no longer care for their pets by offering assistance to help keep pets in their homes or rehoming them when necessary.

And now meet your Real Shelter Dogs, complete with opening credits-worthy taglines! (If you are interested in adopting any of these wonderful dogs, please visit www.dallaspetsalive.org.)

“I might as well be a Dallas cowboys cheerleader, because I’ll root for you from the sidelines.” – Lady Guadalupe

Lady Guadalupe is a five-year-old sassy lady who loves to play and burrow up next to you. She is an equal opportunity snuggler who loves cats, dogs and humans of all sizes. She is a pro in the crate and walks on a leash with pizzazz.

“My advice: Go for walks and wear good accessories.” -Bailey

Bailey is one of the smiliest pups we’ve ever seen. This senior lady loves going out for walks and is very responsive to training. You can catch her dressing up in her many designer duds or cuddling up with her human pals. You can’t help but smile when you are around Queen Bailey.

“I came home to Dallas to shine my light, and romp around in your backyard.” - Hermione

Hermione is a seven-month-old black beauty with white spots. This goofy gal often thinks she is a lap dog and loves snuggling up to a good movie. Hermione is super affectionate and would be best in an environment that allowed her use some of her puppy energy!

“I like to have fun, but I don’t play games. (Unless you count tug-of-war, then I absolutely do play games.)” - Rusty

Rusty is named for his rust red coat and gorgeous hazel eyes. This stud loves humans of all shapes and sizes. Rusty’s favorite thing is to put his head in your lap or lay next to you on the couch. However, Rusty’s no couch potato. He often helps his foster mom clean, work in the backyard and make dinner. Rusty also loves tug-o-war and squeaky toys.
