Realtors cannot discuss whether a particular location is "safe." You can check for criminal activity in a given area here ... http://www.neighborhoodscout.com/tx/houston/
I'm assuming that you'd be renting. I'll need bit more information ...
What is your budget?
How many bedrooms/bathrooms do you need?
Are there any specific requirements (appliances, yard, pool, fireplace, etc.)?
Do you have sufficient cash for the first month's rent, security and pet deposits?
Does anyone smoke?
What breed and how large are the dogs?
Is your credit satisfactory?
Have there been any prior landlord/tenant issues?
Please have this ready ... then contact a Realtor. There is no cost to you as a tenant. Best of luck ... you're going to need it.
