Posted Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Tonya Griffith (TMSGriffith@aol.com) for more information about this pet. Precious was surrendered May 20, 2007. I was told she had been seen getting beat by her owners, and I was also told she had been shot at by someone. The bullet grazed the back of her shoulder blades. The hair did grow back in where I was told she had been shot. She is a climber, is leash trained, and crate trained, but I have to let her hike her leg on something outside before bringing her in to a crate, or she will do it inside the store room where the crates are. Yes, I said hike, just like a male dog. I don't know why. She is paired up with Marshall, and he has the same problem, so maybe it's from being with him. She didn't use to be like that until I paired her up with Marshall, so she could be trained again. She use to be a yard dog that was crated at night and when I ran errands, but kept climbing over our four foot perimeter fence and bothering the neighbor, so she had to go in a six foot dog pen she couldn't get out of. I still have to crate her when I run errands, or she starts working on the chain link fence or digging to get out, so she is still crated when I leave, but not at night. She has become extremely sweet and more social now since she has been here. She use to be scared of most movements we made, but is now comfortable. I don't even need a leash with her. On occasion I will have her out of her dog pen when the other yard dogs are crated, and she will follow me wherever I go, and comes quickly anytime I call her. If I sit down, she is in my lap wanting to be pet, and will even roll over for a belly rub. She would make a great personal pet for someone, and is good around children. D.O.B.: ? 2005 Weight: 53.7 - 5/23/07 $70 adoption fee will pay for her spay and vaccinations.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Pointer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Tyler, TX
      Posted Breed: English Pointer / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Tonya Griffith (TMSGriffith@aol.com) for more information about this pet. Pictures updated 12/17/07. Cleo was a stray that wandered up to a house on a county road in Lindale, Texas. Soon after she appeared her litter of 10 puppies was born, and Baby Girl is one that still has not been adopted. She loves to jump up high on items and soak up the sun and loves to chase water from the water hose. She can jump over a 4 foot fence, so she needs a 6 foot fence to keep her in. She has been recently crated at night starting in 2011, and does not make a mess, so she might do very well in a house. Baby Girl has been with a few other dogs at our location for several years without jumping over our 4 foot fence, since she has been here her entire life now. She has liked chasing water from the water hose in the past, but is not as active like that now that she is a senior. Mother: Cleo D.O.B.: April 9, 2004. Weight: 42.0 - 1/3/05 Siblings: Brooklyn, Maya, Barkley, Milly, Trestle, Calvin, Harley, Daphne, $60 adoption fee will pay for her spay and vaccinations.

I can't let an animal starve to death that comes to my home when someone else dumps the animal out. We have had several dumped when they were puppies, and they are all healthy, young, and very loving. Trying to feed all these dogs that other people throw away is becoming overwhelming, and I need to find good homes for them.

      Posted Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Tonya Griffith (TMSGriffith@aol.com) for more information about this pet. For adoption information, please contact: William Bishop 903/283-3780 road-ranger@hotmail.com Posted 8/30/11, and pictures updated 9/25/11. William took the Catahoula mother of these puppies from a neighbor that has many dogs. William is disabled and had not been able to spay her before she got pregnant because he had spent a lot of money having her heartworm treatment done, and now he has no income at this time, so he can't afford to care for them. We are assisting William with food, worm medicine, heartworm prevention, and had the mother and all the puppies spayed and neutered. William will be keeping the mother, but needs to find homes for all the puppies. William also has one cat, the puppies are great around his cat, and he has been working with walking them on a leash. D.O.B.: May 2011 Weight: 22.9 - 9/7/11 $75 adoption fee will pay for his neuter and vaccinations.

      Age: Young
      Location: Tyler, TX
      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Tonya Griffith (TMSGriffith@aol.com) for more information about this pet. Posted 6/11/11, and pictures taken 6/8/11. Harvey was found on our county road 6/6/11, and very hungry. He is a very happy and energetic dog. He is in a large dog pen with 2 female dogs, so we don't know if he is house trained or not. I tried to put another young male dog in the pen with them, and he tried to show his dominance over the other dog, so he would be better paired up with just female dogs. He is eager to be with people. He doesn't like being in the dog pen, and not being able to interact with us, but has not made any attempts of digging or climbing to get out. D.O.B.: ? December 2010 Weight: 46.5 - 6/8/11 $80 adoption fee will pay for his neuter and vaccinations.

Parker was found on our county road 9/10/10 starving. His ribs and hip bones were showing. His teeth indicate that he is only around 4 months of age when he was found. He is very playful, affectionate, and energetic. He is wanting constant attention and will walk in front of a person. He does great on a leash besides stopping and wanting your attention. His breed is still undetermined. We have one opinion of a Terrier mix, and he has spots on his body which could indicate Red Healer mix or possibly a Setter mix. D.O.B.: ?

      Breed: Australian Shepherd-Unknown Mix

      Age: Young
      Location: Tyler, TX
      Posted Breed: Australian Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Tonya Griffith (TMSGriffith@aol.com) for more information about this pet. Pictures updated 6/9/09 and transferred to us 6/22/09. He was being crated at night and when I ran errands, and did very well, so house training should be easy. He followed me wherever I would go, does well on a leash, and his fur is Reddish Brown. I later put him in a dog pen due to him following me too closely all the time while trying to do my chores. D.O.B.: ? August 2008 Weight: 42.7 - 7/3/09 $75 adoption fee will pay for his neuter and vaccinations. Posted 5/20/09 for Kahne Parsons Walker. "I live out here at Lake Hawkins. We get a lot of stray animals dumped out here and there are practically no resources for dealing with the unfortunate animals. Recently someone dumped (or so I believe) a dog near our house. I did not aim to take him in, but he found his way into our yard, burrowing under our gates, and so like it or not he is here. I called the East Texas shelter and they are not currently taking in dogs. So, until I can find a situation, I will have to see that he comes to no harm. He is currently at the vet's getting wormed and receiving his shots. I don't know his breed or exactly how old he is. Dr. Hobbs thinks he may have some Australian shepherd in him by the look of his ears. He is very friendly and gets along with other dogs (even our male dog, who is very territorial). He is not yet neutered. He has lots of puppy energy, but seems bright and trainable. We really can't keep him for long. We already have two dogs and four cats, all of them former strays. You know how much it costs to properly care for animals and as my husband and I are both school teachers we don't have a lot of extra cash. He weighs 35 pounds and is about 9 months old (acc. to the vet). He has had his first shots and been wormed, has tested negative for heartworms and begun preventative treatment, and is also on Frontline. He was not neutered when found. He is as tall/long as his adult growth though he will likely fill out more. We do not know the mix of breeds that produced him, but he is lean and fast and can JUMP. (Someone who wants a dog who can catch frisbees or jump through hoops would love him.) I have taught him to fetch, and he does, in his own fashion. He still has a lot of energy, and that makes it hard to instill discipline, but I'll do what I can."
