16756 Westheimer Parkway.
Houston, TX 77082
Millie Bush is the best dog park I've ever visited. It has all the necessary "stuff;" that is, it's securely double-gated, has a separate area for dogs who weigh <20 lbs., plentiful garbage cans and waste-disposal bags, &c. Millie Bush also has three ponds (two in the big-dog area and one for the little guys), "fire hydrants" a-plenty, and really nice washing stations if you want to give your pup a bath before heading home. It's wonderful to see water-oriented dogs splashing in the pools after their toys (or just because.) Since even the small dogs get a pond I've even seen tiny toy poodles getting in on the action, which is just delightful. There are also benches for the humans and a nice covered area for those hot, bright Houston days. It can get pretty muddy at Millie when it's been raining hard but that's never been a deterrant for us. (The website says: "Millie Bush Bark Park is on Federal land used as a reservoir which is intended to hold large amounts of flood water when needed. Lucky for us, it doesn't flood often to this extent, however, when it does the park may be flooded for 2 to 3 weeks.") What I love best about Millie is the size (there's enough room to run) and the variety of dogs and people who are always there. I've had some great conversations and seen examples of breeds I'd only read about before. (I've also met some charming mutts. Like I said, great variety.) The location is beautiful and I wouldn't want it anywhere else but it is pretty far away from everything. Totally worth it, though.

Rescue Organizations

Hurst, TX 76053
For every life there is a legacy. In many instances the legacy passed down is not as it should be and requires help from caring souls to be fulfilled. It is our belief that all Boxers should have a legacy befitting of their wonderful enthusiasm and love of life, but sadly, this isn't always the case. We, the founder and volunteers of Legacy Boxer Rescue, have made it our mission to seek out these Boxers and create a legacy they deserve, a loving family and home of their own. We firmly believe that a Boxer's future should never be uncertain, so we will help to create better, happier legacies for them; one Boxer at a time. A legacy that replaces despair with hope, sorrow with happiness, fear with security, and pain with love.
