Meet Biscuit, an 8-year-old, mixed-breed female weighing in at 50 pounds. She might be a bit older, but she loves long walks and making friends with other dogs. Her smooth coat is mostly white, but she has the cutest brown, floppy ears and dark eyes. Biscuit currently is being treated for heartworms, so she will need a calm home to relax in because of exercise restrictions while undergoing treatment, which is provided by the SPCA of Texas. Like all pets from the SPCA of Texas, Biscuit has been spayed, microchipped and is current on all her necessary vaccines.She is waiting for you at the SPCA of Texas Russell E. Dealey Animal Rescue Center, so you’ll need an appointment to meet her. To do that, find her profile at and click on the “Make an Appointment” button.
