About Houston Dog Mom

In the beginning, I was a normal dog owner.

Then I was introduced to the world of dog rescue and dog shelters. And an obsession was born.

Now that I’m a dog mom, I think about dogs more than is healthy. And you get to benefit from my canine compulsion.

Houston Dog Mom

I was a cat person for years. Then I went to the dog side. I’m a volunteer at Harris County Animal Shelter, and a videographer for Urgent Shelter Pets Houston. My day job is at ElectricityPlans.com, helping folks shop for electricity. And at night, I write dog content for my blog. My goal is to provide dog moms with resources they need for their dog. I also want to promote responsible dog ownership and Houston area dog rescue.

Douglas MacArthur – Number One Doggo

I’m a catahoula-husky-blue heeler mix. The perfect first dog for a cat lover (BOL!). She should have named me “Houdini” since I’m an escape artist. But I do always return. My gray face shows my age (born around August 2009) but also shows my wisdom.

I still act like a puppy. I’m a big boned girl who doesn’t know my size (70 lbs). My favorite thing to do is de-stuff toys. And one day I’m going to catch a squirrel. Mom says I’m lucky I’m so cute. I’m just a big baby (born around August 2014).
