Houston TX: Adopt Mom & Daughter Serena & Mandi the rescued Labrador mixes

To adopt them, contact Rescuer/Foster Mom Jeannice Cain at jchppl@gmail.com

Rescuer/Foster Mom Jeannice posted Serena's and Mandi's story (see below) on January 3, 2015. The two are still seeking adoption to a deserving family. Many thanks to kind donors(!) who helped with their vet bills;  they were rescued around Christmas 2014 along with Banda the Boxer mix who had severe injuries and is also available for adoption now (see his post HERE).

Serena Mom's Story

I was living outside at a house with another black lab. Then I had 3 babies. Next thing I know my owner left me, along and the others. People came and started tearing down the house. It scared us and the 5 of us all ran off. I don’t know what happened to everyone else but I ended up at another house across the street along with my daughter, Mandi and one of my other babies. We were happy there for a short time. We could run around outside (no fence) and there were other dogs and kids to play with. 

Dogs at a deserted house in 2014
Once again, the owners left me, Mandi and a few other dogs. I am not sure what happened to my other baby and a blond chow that was with us. There was either 4 or 5 of us left. My foster mom had been watching all of this the whole time and when she realized we were abandoned AGAIN started feeding us. She put out a plea for help. With no response and worried that we were either going to be picked up OR the house was about to be torn down, she caught me and Mandi at Christmas 2014. The other two dogs ran off but one came back (Banda) and was found inside the house (back door was open). She was severely hurt with a broken leg and had been used as pit bait. The male big brown dog was never seen again. Several of us were pregnant, him being the father, he probably went back home once we left.

She brought us to her home and in an area in the back yard where we have shelter, can go inside and out through a dog door, all the food and treats we want! Even beds, a fan and a/c! We didn’t even know how to eat separately out of a bowl! 

I am about 3 years old. I was altered, vaccinated and microchipped. I am heartworm negative and on I LOVE to be petted, belly rubbed and to play with toys and with Mandi . I do like to chew on my plastic I am learning what it is like to be on a leash. We have some work to do. I know sit and learning general training. I am VERY gentle and sweet natured. BUT when I sleep I need my ‘space’.

I am ok with people after a brief introduction. With other dogs I do not know, need a slow introduction. I was around several boys and girls at the second house ages 5-15. I will make someone very happy as I am so loving and easy going! If possible, I would love to have my daughter Mandi with me too.

Last year she led a desperate life, but now she is relaxed in rescue

Mandi and Serena were very worried at the deserted house in 2014


A little more about Mandi


I am a little over 1 year old. I was altered, vaccinated and microchipped. I am heartworm positive but on heartworm preventative.
I LOVE to be petted, belly rubbed and to play with toys and with Serena and Banda. I love to RUN with my  mom in the big yard, play stand off, then go get her!!! She will turn around and go after me too!
I am high energy and can jump a six foot fence.  (I only wanted to be closer and with my foster mom!)
Mandi & Serena are relaxed in foster care
I am learning what it is like to be on a leash.  We have some work to do.  I know sit and learning general training. I knew nothing and learning some do’s and don’ts since I like to go after anything that makes noises like lawnmowers, weed eaters, kids on bicycles.

I will make someone very happy if they will have some patience with me.  If possible, I would love to have my mom, Serena , with me too.


Mandi likes to ‘chomp’ her mouth when she doesn’t like something. She has a foot fetish also.  She will look at your feet and mouth your shoes. Mandi may take her blankets out – and Serena too.


Houston TX: Adopt Banda the 2-year-old Boxer mix girl who has been through a lot of hardship already

Contact Jeannice Cain at jchppl@gmail.com (gmail.com) to adopt Banda

Rescuer/Foster Mom Jeannice posted Banda's story (see below) on January 3, 2015. 

Today Friday Jul 31, 2015 Jeannice Cain <jchppl@gmail.com> wrote:

...pics in the beginning Banda with a severe broken leg.  I have some of her body full of sores and cuts from being either tortured or pit bait.
In one of the pics where she was abandoned, with the blue collar leash around her, you can see a bone protruding on her front left leg close to the top of her leg.

Banda's Story

I don’t know exactly what happened, but I ended up at a house, along with either 4 or 5 other dogs. They were all abandoned – some twice already on this street.
My foster mom had been watching all of this transpire and started feeding us. She put out a plea for help.  With no response and worried that we were either going to be picked up OR the house was also about to be torn down she caught the two black labs Mandi & Serena Christmas 2014. I ran off with another tan male dog but came back and was found inside the house (back door was open).


Bone protruding at site of break in leg
I was severely hurt with a broken leg and had been used as pit bait.  I had sooo many bite marks all over me and a bone protruding from where my leg was broken. The male big brown dog was never seen again. Several of the girls were pregnant, him being the father so he probably went back home once we left.
She brought us to her home and in an area in the back yard where we have shelter, can go inside and out through a dog door, all the food and treats we want!  Even beds, a fan and a/c! We didn’t even know how to eat separately out of a bowl!  I was soooo grateful to be saved and someone warm and safe!
I never snapped, growled or even showed any pain from the time they were getting me into a crate when I couldn’t even walk on my front leg to going to the vet to be checked out!  
Banda is such a ham and loves to be snuggled in covers!

I am a little over 2 years old. I was altered, vaccinated and microchipped. I am heartworm positive but on heartworm preventative.  My leg still needs to be looked at.
I LOVE to be petted, belly rubbed and to play with toys and with foster sisters Serena and Mandi (whose post is HERE). I love to explore the big yard. I can be a protector by letting you know if I hear something some times.
I am a BIG love bug and my favorite place is in your lap being loved on!  
I am learning what it is like to be on a leash.  I know sit and learning general training. I knew nothing and learning some do’s and don’ts since I like to go after anything that makes noises like lawnmowers, weed eaters, kids on bicycles.  I am little timid at times if you pick up something or bang on something. I usually run a few feet away and watch. I do listen very well and learn quickly.
I am ok with people after a brief introduction.  With other dogs I do not know, need a slow introduction.
Banda likes to take her bedding/blankets out through the dog door.

We were working with a student at UT veterinary to save this young dog she found in the UT parking garage.  She took him home to Cordova.  Tonight he ran away from her family - probably trying to find his home.  They looked for him for hours and couldn't find him.

He was lost near Germantown Parkway during rush hour in Cordova.

If you spot him please put a leash on him and email me ASAP!!
