Just a pup – returned to packed shelter by foster because he chewed

A young dog, truly just a pup at a year of age, has been returned to a packed animal shelter by his foster because he chews. Earlier this week, a Facebook post was made on the young dog’s behalf:

*Foster Return*

A018266 was surrendered to the shelter by his foster on 11/24. I will update his post when I receive the reason they gave. *Returned because he chewed on things, but was great with kids*. He is a one year old Catahoula Leopard Hound/mix, HW-. Please consider adopting him.


Puppies chew – and young dogs need direction and training. This pup has no one to show him the ropes and now, he may pay for his typical puppy behavior with his life.

This pup is located at the Ft. Bend Animal Control Agency in Rosenberg, Texas – and the facility is packed beyond capacity, which means that all of the dogs are at risk. On Wednesday, the Facebook page for the animal control agency posted about the dire situation:

The shelter has no empty kennels, and dogs are being placed in pop up kennels in the hallway. The shelter is open until 7 PM tonight and adoption fees are waived. Please come out and adopt.

You can reach the shelter by calling: 281-342-1512

Identification number for this young dog is A018266
