Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Australian Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Sienna came into the program as a potential service dog (she can open and close drawers and doors!), but she is still a bit too active on the leash for walking in public (she loves to ride the bus though). She has graduated from Basic Obedience Class, but will need an experienced person to continue her leash training. In particular when seeing another dog on leash. Her ideal home would be an active one with a tall 6 foot fence. Her foster home has two children. One is 11 years old and the other is 15 years old. She does extremely well with both of them. dreampawsrescue@gmail.com For more information visit: dreampawsrescue.blogspot.com or email us for more information at dreampawsrescue@gmail.com

We currently do not have detailed information for this breed. If you would like to provide such information, you can do it here:

Request to Add a New Breed
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.

      Poncho

      rescue
      Breed: Chiweenie
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Mishawaka, IN
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Dachshund / Mixed (short coat). Poncho, AKA Sparky, was captured in the Fairview Cemetary in Mishawaka, IN. He had been roaming for a while in the area and although found ads were placed online and in the paper, no family came forward to claim him. He is still timid around people, but loves to play with other dogs. His ideal home would be a quiet home with another playful dog. If there are children, 12 years old and up are suggested for the calm and quiet factor needed to boost his confidence. He will require a fenced-in yard. Poncho is housebroken!

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Mishawaka, IN
      Posted Breed: Black and Tan Coonhound (short coat). Alfie is approximately 16 months old. He spent 6 months in a boarding kennel and is recently learning how to love in a home environment. He is not 100% housebroken, but is learning to signal to go outside by nudging the door. He LOVES to go to the dog park and go on walks. Although he is a hunting breed, he is timid around loud noises, including a clicker. This young boy needs a family that has patience to help him acclimate to a home environment! He bonds easily to other dogs, especially females! For more information visit: dreampawsrescue.blogspot.com or email us for more information at dreampawsrescue@gmail.com

      Breed: Greyhound
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Mishawaka, IN
      Posted Breed: Greyhound / German Shepherd Dog (short coat). Anastasia has the qualities of both breeds! She is an excellent guarding dog, but also loves to play. Children over the age of 7 would be best as she can knock down smaller children unintentionally. Approximate age is 2 years. At the dog park, Anastasia plays well with the other large dogs. She is afraid of men at first and then when ignored, she wants to be loved on. She would love a family that can take her camping or on road trips. She is NOT good with cats.
