Success Stories

Our adoption success stories (and foster fails) are what keep us smiling. See some of our success stories below!

We love updates! If you have adopted from us, we’d love to add your success story too! Email information and photos to



Falcone, along with his three siblings (Michelle, Anne, and Ildy), Mom (Jackie) and Dad (Houston) were dumped along the roadside in Odessa, Texas. Found scrounging for food, it took hours before the finder could ever touch one of the dogs they were so fearful.

With a little perseverance, she was able to approach them and get them the help they needed. All were in amazingly good condition and have all been adopted into loving homes.

Falcone (seen here) is loving his new brother, and a big comfy bed to snooze in!




Apollo was rescued from this second home within a year. He had been rehomed due to moving, and the kids who had him were keeping him in a crate for 20+ hours a day. One of our wonderful volunteers rescued him and showed him what freedom was like! He is an absolute love bug. When his foster mom opened her door to him, she knew 30 seconds in that he was hers forever. He jumped on the couch and snuggled and the rest is history. Apollo now serves as a Sauver Des Chiens ambassador pup, and he is so very loved.




Ace was owner surrendered when his owner could no longer care for him and his brother Sarge. Ace proved to be a wonderful pup that all of our volunteers fell in love with! Ace was adopted into a loving home where he follows his new human brother around all the time! They absolutely love him! Happy Tails Ace!



Born to a stray momma, given away, and then surrendered to a shelter, Khloe had an interesting start to her life. Now she found her forever family to love her.




Hi, I’m Mathan Beag, meaning “Little Bear” but they really call me “Matti”. I was first know as “Lexi” and my now owner was hoping for an “Odessa 6” puppy, but faith had it that she was to get me. Oh I’m so happy that this family has me and I have so many brothers and sisters. I have such a big back yard and quiet neighborhood to take walks in.
With luck and all the love I’m getting I will be a strong and beautiful Shepherd, as I know I’m filling a empty spot in my Female human’s heart as she lost her “Teddy Bear” GSD months before she took me to my “Forever Home”. I’m so happy to be here and I want to THANK Sauver Des Chiens for taking me in and such good care until my Renee could take me home!!




Rocky was saved from the Harris County Shelter the day he was to set to be euthanized in February 2017. He was skin and bones, had scabies, was heartworm positive, still intact….he was a mess. Thanks to his foster mom’s love and care, he came full circle. She fell in love with him so much that she adopted him! And we are so glad for it!



Thor was a puppy born to a stray dog and taken into foster care with Sauver Des Chiens. He was adopted and now he and his sister Izzie are the best of friends. His mom reports that he is growing so fast and learning more every day.



Just wanted to give you guys an update on Eva. As you can see, she’s adjusted very well! She goes to doggy daycare, goes camping, and travels on family trips out of state! She’s a part of us and we love her! Everyday, she makes the rounds and “hugs” everyone, but from the picture below, she hugs our daughter a little extra. They have a strong bond and spend a lot of time together! Eva does have a severe case of bilateral hip dysplasia which is unfortunate that it wasn’t caught earlier. But, she takes weekly shots and daily anti-inflammatories and runs like a puppy! She’ll have to have a hip replacement sooner than later, but we’ll cross that bridge when the time comes! Thanks for everything! We forget, who saved who???
