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.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Sophie is a very special girl. Her ideal job would be a bird chaser at an airport runway! Yes, she has a very high prey drive towards birds, cats, and small dogs. She also can scale a 6 foot fence easily (we are working on boundary training). She enjoys children over 4 feet tall and those that sit at a table rather than on the floor. Sophie comes with wonderful obedience skills, but she is put to the test when cats or birds are nearby.

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult

      Posted Breed: Doberman Pinscher (short coat). My name fits my personality! I like to eat my food by myself, sit on the couch by myself and guard my bed. My foster parents hold up a water bottle to let me know I need to cool my jets. I am learning, but it is so hard! My foster mom knows not to let me up on the couch if the other dogs are around and I respect that. I need to be in a crate when no one is home. Why, you ask? Well, I like to clean counters. Yes, it doesn't matter what is up there, I will knock it off. If it is food, well, let's just say that there will not be any food there when you get home. I do love to play with other dogs, but sometimes get a little carried away and frighten the other dog(s). Remember, I am still learning to listen to others. When I meet new humans, I prefer women, but men are okay once they sit down. For more information visit: dreampawsrescue.blogspot.com or email us for more information at dreampawsrescue@gmail.com
