Most of our rescues have sad stories.  BMAR takes the dogs that nobody else wants, special needs, medical needs, issues....  We pass up the cute easy ones...they have a chance and every one wants them. BMAR wants to repair the really damaged souls & bodies of the unwanted. We want to make them whole. We want them to know they matter! 



Nothing is known about Outlaw...he didn't even have a name attached to him...just another stray dog in Texas.  Some caring volunteers scooped him up, we agreed to do our best for him. Really a thin boy under all that fur...we are tending to business. He is a friendly boy...and very smart!  I don't think he had ever been an inside dog before.  We put him in a crate in the med room to eval him and get a take on his personality and he was in love with this idea.  He goes in out, exercises, hangs with humans...playtime and want's to go back into his crate.  This handsome smart boy is a real catch... Looks like a Bernese Mountain Dog...just needs a touch more white!

TRANSFERRED OUT OF STATE. HOORAY.    Ace 5 yr Male Chihuahua

8# Spitfire and not dog friendly! Ace likes people!  He is heartworm positive & intact. Ace is rescue transfer only until neutered.  He must be treated for heartworms and is on the slow kill method.  Ace is not potty broke and tends to mark his territory inside and out, Ace was rescued from South Texas just minutes from being euthanized. He loves to be a lap dog & we really want to give him a chance. You can donate to Aces' stay here by clicking below,

AK 7 yr Rottie Mix Boy

Neutered Male rottie mix. This dog was pulled by another rescue that wouldn't keep him due to poor medical condition, This boy was sick. BMAR nursed him back to health, put weight on him, he has a great attitude and is ready for a foster to show him the ropes. He is neutered, utd on vaccinations but is hw+.  He probably has never been an inside dog, never socialized, never cared for.  Despite all this, he is people friendly and can be with other dogs with supervision and good introduction,

Audi 3 yr Lab Mix Boy

50# Happy Audi! Nuetered, HW neg, utd vaccinations. Loves people, good with other dogs.  Came in with his sidekick Jetta! Never been inside but very smart.  These 2 dogs came in without a hair between them, oozing sores, run down, lethargic & scared to death. They were so scared. Look at him now! Mange is cured but he is allergic to mites so must be on a flea pill to kill them. He does have Alopecia so some areas will never grow hair back! 

Brownie  2 yr Boxer mix Girl

Brownie came to us 7/17/2019 from Harris County with a badly broken leg. We fixed her up...and she is good as new! At 50#, she's a people loving handful.  Brownie is dog selective but makes friends easily with  proper introductions. She shows no interest in the barn cats when they are laying about, but if they run...well, boxers love to chase small, fleeing animals so use caution.  We suspect that Brownie lived her whole life outside. Medium energy...she is ready for a savvy foster to teach her the ropes!  

UTD on shots, hw neg and spayed, this is a beautiful bob tailed girl and ready for family life!  We really need sponsors for their stay here or you can donate below!

Bruce 3 yr male Catahoula mix hound

Bruce came from Harris County Shelter by way of Kendra's Kanines. He is a neutered boy & hw negative. At over 70#, Bruce is ready to give a lot of love to the right family! He is treat motivated.  He doesn't know how to live inside because he never had the opportunity.  He is not barrier aggressive and is fine with other dogs with a slow introduction.  He does not like to be jumped on...would you?  He is alert, active, people friendly. He had a bad start in life, went to a disreputable boarding facility, and finally came here where he received enough food, proper care and has just blossomed! Big healthy, strong boy and willing to learn! Please donate to his stay here!

Chico 2 yr Dane & Dobie boy

Chico is hw neg, utd on shots, neutered and a big boy! The pics don't show just how big this boy is... He is kid friendly (had his own toddler), has been around an old cat, potty broke, an inside boy, good car rider, high energy family dog! He was handraised and loved dearly...his family got deported and they made he heartbreaking decision to let BMAR find a home for him.  They felt that Mexico did not offer the resources needed to keep their boy safe! He has a longer story...ask us, we will fill you in!

TRANSFERRED OUT OF STATE.  HOORAY.......Abraham...7+?? yrs Maltese Mix

Abraham was an abandoned dog. We have zero info on him other than what we know to be true....he is cute as a button!  Update:  He has received all his adult vaccines but tested positive for heartworms and has started his 30 days of doxy prior to slow kill program.  He is an intact male and is available for rescue transfer only until nuetered!

Chase...7 yr German Shepherd

Chase was abandoned and came in with her half grown pup with a severely broken leg that had to be amputated.  She would not leave her injured pup behind and both were in very bad shape!  Skinny, hair falling out...that little pitiful leg on that pup with anxious mom trying to protect him... The pup was fixed and found a home right away.  Chase is constantly looked over.  She is rescue transfer only... when she is spayed we will consider adoption. She will be tested for hw.  She has some cosmetic issues because she was simply bred to darn much. But to us she is a beautiful sable, sweet girl!  She is not aggressive and would make a great pet. Contact us for the full pitiful story and more pics.

Clyde.. 2 yrs Black Mouth Cur

Clyde was dumped off as a puppy and has grown up here...sad! He always should have had a home to love him.  He is neutered, utd on shots, but he is hw+ and requires long term treatment or fast kill. About 50# he is an active young boy.  Clyde is currently housed with a pittie play mate. He is dog & people friendly! Handsome all around boy ready to play!

This little lab girl is very sweet,  She had a rocky start coming from the shelter and had some serious skin issues.  They are all better now! She is rescue transfer only until spayed.

Dayton under 2 yrs Weimaraner mix

Cruelty Case - Confiscated to keep from getting shot.  Powerful boy and he is not for the faint hearted.  He is very strong. Dayton has never been inside. Was loose on a ranch type area and mistreated. Barely fed and no interaction.  We have found him to be freindly, high energy, dog selective. He ran loose with other dogs in his former home but was beat on pretty bad which has made him difficult to introduce to other dogs.  Rescue transfer only. He has a lot of vet work to complete and will update this info. He will take a special handler and needs training. He hasn't had much in the way of a life...are you the one to give him his chance?  He is a beautiful dog...well muscled with a satin coat.

Duke 3 1/2 yr old lab/hound mix

Extremely neglected with multiple injuries. Transferred to us from another rescue.  He has fear issues...once he knows you he is fine. Rescue transfer only.

Fawna  3 yr Lab/Terrier Mix

This pretty little girl is from Kendra's Kanines....she came to us starving...and has never missed a meal since.  Fawna is very friendly and ready to go to a foster for one on one inside loving!  Probably better if she is only dog...she has shown no aggression here but we have no idea what her life was prior to the shelter!  Very people friendly! Young girl with lots of life left to give to a new family!

Atlas 3 yr boxer/terrier mix

Have no idea why they clipped this fine boys ears! Was it to make him look mean? 'Cause he isn't!  This sweet boy was picked up as a stray by a kill shelter and was in really bad shape, infections everywhere, emaciated, loaded with parasites...you name it, he had it and of course, heartworm Positive.  He has been treated for all his infections, put his weight back on and is a fine handsome boy!  We had him neutered.  He will need heartworm treatment.  Message us for before and after pictures!


Rascal is a big, playful boy.  He can be with a playmate and he needs a home. Rascal has been at the rescue over 2 years.  He was picked up as a stray in South Texas and scheduled to be euthanized as his time ran out. Such a good boy deserved a better fate!  Obviously a dalmation mix...he is very striking with his blue eyes and smiling face. Rascal has been neutered but sadly he is heartworm positive.  He has been started on the slow kill method but will have to continue it for many months so that he can be safe.  Rascal is a fine boy to add to any family fun! Rascal is between 3 & 4 years old...just perfect!


Big & Bodacious!  That's our Bandit...named because he stole our hearts right away! Bandit was a stray destined to die in a South Texas shelter..High kill shelters are the normal thing in Texas and they are awful!  But BMAR could not let that happen to this big beauty! Pointer mix, smart, active and awesome!  Bandit is heartworm positive and is intact.  He cannot be adopted out until fully vetted. He can be transferred to another rescue where he will have a good chance at getting a new home! Bandit has been here over two years...he really needs out. Rescue runs are no life for a really big dog like Bandit. Pass the word...Bandit needs a home!

Bailey 2 yr Lab/Terrier Mix

A compact beauty of medium size: 50#

Blueboy 6 year Terrier Mix

Blue has been here 4 years. Blue is a large dog, a big, tall boy and is probably the only reason he is still here.  He came from one of the worst high kill shelters in South Texas and we barely got him out in time. Abused, neglected...at such a young age and he has spent most of his life here. He is a pleasant friendly boy and could really benefit with the right foster to guide him along the way..............UPDATE:  Neutered March 2020 and heartworm negative.  all vaccines updated..................................................

Blue Belle 5 years Terrier Mix

Blue Belle came from Big Springs Shelter...very high kill way back in 2017.  She has a blind eye...message me for more pics!  She would be best as an only dog and does have mild dog aggression issues. She could be worked with if you are experienced handler. Despite her blind eye, she is active and loves attention.  Blue Belle has been here so long...are you the one to give her a home? Give her a life? ..................................................................................................................................................

Bluemoon 5 yr Staffie mix.

Bluemoon has been he 2 years!  Destined to die in a high kill shelter...she has never had a chance. She is a good girl but is heartworm positive. Bluemoon has a few good months left...she needs someone to love on her. After 2 years...don't you think so too!  She can be with other dogs after a slow intro.  She used to be housed with Butterbean and no problems.  This pretty girl is a real winner....


This girl has been bred over and over...then dumped & starved nearly to death. Then the 2nd pair sold her puppies and dumped her in the woods....it's a really long, sad, story!  But we have her back in shape now. Sadly, she is heartworm positive. This 5 year old girl really deserves a shot at retirement with someone who will actually care about her.  Is that you?

Bruno  2+ yrs Bull Dog Mix

Rescued from certain death at a high kill shelter. This youngster had mange, skinny, sores....but as you can tell he's all better now! Except for playing in the mud of course!  Heartworm negative and has had all shots! Ready to go... Bruno has been here since Nov 2, 2019.  He was only supposed to stay a couple weeks but his ride fell through.  This is a big, nice boy and would make anyone proud!

Butterbean was snatched from a high kill South Texas shelter in the nick of time!  But she has been here 2 years...and we need to find her a home. Can be with other dogs with a slow intro. Very pretty girl with lots of love to give.  Butterbean has lived her whole life outside and was bred at a young age before she was dumped!  Butterbean is heartworm positive and we will provide a month of slow kill meds - ask us how to do it!

Cardi  4 yr old terrier mix

Cardi it one of the happiest & people friendly girls I have ever met.  But she is not dog friendly and absolutely no cats!  Cardi would be best as an only dog.  She is up to date on vaccinations, spayed & heartworm negative. Cardi has been here over a year...time for this pretty girl to have a home!  Cardi came from a kill shelter. Little is known about her except that she was skinny and not cared for.  Time for Cardi to be loved!

Charity  7 years

Charity is a big, big girl. She was to be killed in the shelter...and she was in really bad shape...really bad.  She is a friendly girl and loves people. She is babysitting one of my seniors with a bad back end and is always going to the play yard with the senior chihuahuas.  She can use a doggie door and goes with me regularly.  Charity is spayed but sadly heartworm positive. This girl has never caught a break.  Charity needs someone to love on her....

Deely 3 yr Terrier Mix

She doesn't have any hope.  From Big Springs kill shelter...barrier aggressive, not dog friendly...definitely no small dogs.  Despite everything against her...she craves human contact.

Duke  3 years

From South Texas,..transferred here without our knowledge...just loaded and came with another dog. No place to go...we found a spot for him.  This boy is beautiful but has issues. He is fearful and doesn't trust humans.  Once you feed him treats and get to know him, once he trusts you...no problem.  He is completely vetted. He needs to be placed with experienced human that has a love for black dogs that were extremely abused. Duke had multiple health issues and injuries. He's healed and and awesome.

Ears  4 yrs old

Ears came from Harris County Shelter.  He is a fear biter or really a fear nipper.  He is scared of people.  He is fine with me. I have had him in the house with very small dogs and no problem.

Oreo & Cocoa  May 2020  4 months old

They are 4 months old & finder cannot keep them!  They have some shots, they are used to being together but can be separated and are all around friendly pups!  Their finder says their mother is a Newfoundland/German Shepherd mix and the Father was a Labrador/Hound mix.... but they don't appear to be a giant breed dog...who knows? Mostly, they are just delightful.  Available for transfer to another rescue and would be available for adoption IF we can get them spayed! Both are girls.  BMAR is just out of funds at present...so any lookers that wanted to donate to finish their vetting would be a Godsend!  you can donate on our links page in so many different ways....
