Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Don't let that serious face fool you! Lovely lady Zoe is such a laid back and happy girl - her entire back end wiggles with excitement when she meets new human and doggie friends. Zoe is very well socialized and free roams with 3 other large dogs in her foster home. Zoe also does super well with her human foster sister, a toddler. Zoe takes treats very gently and sits to be petted. Her favorite spot is the couch and she loves to snuggle with you! This sweet gal would blend well into just about any home - how about yours??? Dogs in our foster care program are: spayed/neutered microchipped up to date on all vaccinations negative for heartworms and on regular heartworm preventative OR recently treated for heartworms and on regular heartworm preventative (It can take up to 6 months for a dog to test negative for heartworm after treatments. We will provide you all the medical documentation regarding the pet's treatment.) in loving foster care homes where they have received training and socialization to help them fit into your home more quickly. There are a few steps to set up the adoption. Complete the Adoption Application online. The online application is a web-based form that should be accessible on Mac, PC, tablet or other mobile device. If you'd like us to send you a PDF via email, we can do that too! If you are meeting us at an event, you can complete the application at the event itself. We require the application in advance so we can get to know a little more about you, and for better safety of our fosters and the dogs. Schedule a home visit. After the adoption application is received, a volunteer from PAWS for Irving Animals work with you to find the best time to meet the pet. Depending on your schedule and the schedule of the pet's foster parents, this might be at a scheduled adoption event (Adoption Events), an area park, or your home. If that initial visit goes well, a volunteer will visit your home with the pet you are interested in adopting. We will ensure that the pet you are interested in has the opportunity to meet all the members of your immediate family, including other pets, to ensure that this adoption is a good fit. We can even do a trial adoption for a period of up to 3 days if you would like. (Note: If you choose to do a trial adoption, we will hold a check for the full price of the adoption fee until you make your final decision. If you choose not to adopt, we will return the check to you when we pick up the dog.) Pay the adoption fee. The adoption fee is $200 for dogs under 12 months and $150 for dogs over 12 months of age. The adoption fee covers many elements: full vetting (spay, vaccinations, etc), registration of microchip to you, etc. You have 3 options for payment: Via check. This can be either given to foster/volunteer at adoption hand-off or mailed as a check made out to "PAWS for Irving Animals" with "Adoption - DOG NAME" in the memo line. The check can be given to PAWS representative at time of adoption. Online at https://pawsforirvinganimalsllc.cloverdonations.com/adoption/ . Be sure to select the correct amount - $200 for dogs under 12 months and $150 for dogs over 12 months. You can pay via PayPal as a "Friends & Family" transfer to PAWSforIrvingAnimalsLLC@Gmail.com

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: American Pit Bull Terrier-American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Irving, TX
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Sweet girl PARIS (American Bulldog mix, 2-3yrs old, 55lbs) was surrendered to a city shelter with 7 pups that were approximately six weeks old. Because the shelter is not a safe environment for a young family, Paris and her babies were taken into foster care with PAWS for Irving Animals. Though she was likely kept outside all of her life, she is quiet and good on a leash. Paris quickly learned to sleep indoors on soft bedding and to eat good quality food and get treats! Paris is playful (she particularly loves soft squeaky toys and marrow bones) and eager to please. Paris loves to make new friends with humans and dogs, especially small dogs. This sweet gal knows she has a new chance for a life as a beloved family member, and she's eager to shower her new family with loyalty and affection!

You might notice that he's missing a bit of fur...but he doesn't let that stop him one bit! Barron is an outgoing, super friendly guy who warms the heart of everyone he meets. He gets along great with dogs, humans, kids and even cats. This lovable goofball probably didn't have the best treatment in life before he came into rescue. Barron was found by an animal control officer very sick, nearly bald from demodex mange (not contagious) and with a skin infection from all his scratching. To top it all off, Barron tested positive for heartworms. Despite his ailments, Barron is such a happy boy and so appreciative for love, attention and affection. He is being treated for the mange and skin infection in January, will be neutered in February and will be treated for heartworms in March. In the meantime, his fun-loving, affectionate personality will continue to shine through. Please feel free to schedule a time to meet him - we know you'll fall in love!

We require the application in advance so we can get to know a little more about you, and for better safety of our fosters and the dogs. Schedule a home visit. After the adoption application is received, a volunteer from PAWS for Irving Animals work with you to find the best time to meet the pet. Depending on your schedule and the schedule of the pet's foster parents, this might be at a scheduled adoption event (Adoption Events), an area park, or your home. If that initial visit goes well, a volunteer will visit your home with the pet you are interested in adopting. We will ensure that the pet you are interested in has the opportunity to meet all the members of your immediate family, including other pets, to ensure that this adoption is a good fit. We can even do a trial adoption for a period of up to 3 days if you would like. (Note: If you choose to do a trial adoption, we will hold a check for the full price of the adoption fee until you make your final decision. If you choose not to adopt, we will return the check to you when we pick up the dog.) Pay the adoption fee. The adoption fee is $200 for dogs under 12 months and $150 for dogs over 12 months of age.

The check can be given to PAWS representative at time of adoption. Online at https://pawsforirvinganimalsllc.cloverdonations.com/adoption/ .
