Hello! My name is Goliath! I used to have a very rough life. I was living on the streets of Houston just trying to live day to day. However, a mean man had another idea for me. He decided to bring his trained fighting dog to the park and allow him to fight all the strays. Unfortunately, I was one of his victims. This experience left me badly injured on my face, but luckily things have turned around for me! I was rescued by ADORE Houston and had all of my wounds tended to. Now, you can barely notice my scars, but I have a really cute droopy lip on one side. I am understandably timid around new people, but I am still a sweetheart once I get to know you. When I am comfortable and in my element, I like to jump around and play. I’m a very gentle soul and I would do fine in a house with cats. I even get along with other dogs my size or smaller, I’m intimidated by bigger dogs.

I have had such a hard time, and now all I want is to relax with a loving family and spend the rest of my years being pampered. If you want to bring me into your home, please fill out an adoption application! I am heartworm negative, up to date on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped.

Adoption or Foster applications can be found at!
