Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi, I’m Alexi, the sweetest Pit Bull you will ever meet! I am loving, friendly and enjoy the company of other dogs who are easygoing like me. Do you know what I love even more than my furry friends? Humans! I adore them and love all the affection I can get… and I have no problem giving it back! I like treats like cheese and chicken and I love going on car rides with my people. I enjoy a good nap but I like being outside too. In fact, when the weather is nice, you might find me outdoors sunbathing! One of my favorite things to do is go to doggy daycare. I’m really popular there, if I do say so myself. I’ve already made lots of friends there! While I’m a superstar at daycare, I really shine at home too. I am crate trained (I love it in there!), housebroken and I'm learning to walk well on a leash. My foster parents were told I am seven years old but they think I may be between 5 and 7. I may be older but I still have a lot of life and, more importantly, a lot of love to give. I am a sweet, special dog who would love nothing more than to find a forever home for my golden years! I'm famous! I was featured on CW33's Ruff Life. Check it out here: http://cw33.com/2016/03/29/ruff-life-alexias-ready-for-her-day-in-the-sun/ All Dallas Pets Alive adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines upon adoption. The standard minimum donation for dogs over six months is $200, and puppies under six months is $250, unless specified otherwise.

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: Chihuahua / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 100.00. Say hello to Princess Peach! According to her foster mom, this silly girl who is the dog version of Velcro! She's a mutt, possibly part chihuhua, weighing in at 18lbs. And, for being an older dog, she has a young energy and spirit! Peach walks well on a leash and is house trained and crate trained, and has even learned how to use the doggy door! She even likes to spend time and relax in her crate even if she doesn't have to. She enjoys her alone time in there to play with her favorite toys - the louder the toy, the better! She might not be the best at fetch, but she sure loves her squeaks! More than anything, Peach wants to just be near her humans, and lights up when they are close. She will even climb up into your lap for pets, before going back to her squeaker toys! Peach gets along with other dogs, including big dogs (so long as they are on the calmer side like she is). Since she is blind, rambunctious dogs tend to startle her. She is great with kids though, even babies and toddlers! This precious girl lost her eyesight at a young age, but she's got so much love to give! Her new family will love her affectionate but silly nature, and she will love being a part of a family. So it's a win-win for everyone! Want to give this loving gal the furever family she deserves?

He has a very happy personality, and easily draws people to him with his adorable smile. He has stunning looks, with his black face mask and white socks. For having a rough start on the streets of Dallas, Jesse bears no grudges. He was found as an injured stray and has undergone knee repair surgery, and has spent lots of times resting and healing. He has not let this stop him from adapting well! He loves to get his belly rubbed and liberally shares kisses! Jesse loves other dogs and eagerly wants to play, so a slow introduction may be necessary. Once introduced, he loves to romp around and play chase or keep-away. He doesn’t know his own size, and has actually put on 15 lbs since being rescued, currently weighing in at 60 lbs! He has been socialized in a home with other dogs, cats and children. He is currently working on learning commands and walking on leash. Dear Jesse has tons of personality that he wants to share. Could you be the lucky one for him to share his love with?

      Sex: Female Female

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 200.00. Introducing Paloma! This gorgeous velveteen beauty is a young Staffordshire/Lab mix, with a sweet temperament, complimentary of both breeds! Paloma is a lovable big fur ball with the cutest heart shaped head! Her foster family reports she gets along well with the other dogs in the house, is learning her leash walking, basic commands, and how to hang in her kennel patiently. She enjoys occasional play time with her fur siblings, but mostly likes to lounge. She's often pretty lazy and LOVES snuggles and attention. Paloma is sometimes fondly referred to as, "couch potato" due to her laid back demeanor. What makes this low level activity even better for her, is if she is able to touch or snuggle with her owner! She very much enjoys human interaction, kisses, hugs, and affection. Playtime can consist of her romping with other dogs, or just chewing on her Nylabones. Now that she is heartworm-free, she's becoming more active and LOVES to go for walks and gets really excited for them. Be prepared to have her greet you when you come home from work with jiggles, tail wagging and a flurry of excitement! This girl loves to love! Expect to get back what you put into her, 200%! She could easily be an only dog of a household, or fit in with other dogs. Her foster notes, however, that she is not a fan of cats. Paloma is ready to find her new home and reap the rewards of TLC, warmth and care. She will no doubt cherish whoever is ready to open their home and heart to her. Apply to adopt Paloma today!

He is a snuggler extraordinaire, and his ultimate goal in life is to be your lap dog. Bogart is a 4 year old pittie mix who enjoys slow walks filled with sniffs, long naps, belly rubs, toys and treats. (He REALLY likes treats!) He deserves them for being a smart boy! He knows how to sit, and does really good in his crate when the humans are at work. This love bug gives lots of kisses and happy twisty tail thumps every time he sees his people or meets someone new. What can we say, he’s a people person (or dog)! Bogart had a rough past, but is very intelligent and is learning lots of new things now that he is in a safe, loving environment. He will, however, need to be the only pet in the home. He won't mind all the snuggles to himself though! Want to give this guy the loving home he deserves? Apply to adopt Bogart today!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 200.00. Hi, my name is Basie! I’m named after a famous Jazz Musician! Aren’t I the cutest dog ever?? I like to think so! My foster parents say I’m the sweetest and most gentle little girl with a lot of spunk – but maybe you should find out for yourself! After all, how many “tri-pods” have you seen that can run faster than you! I haven’t always had 3 legs, and my life didn’t exactly start out as I had hoped, but I don’t have any complaints these days. I mean, maybe I could use a few more belly rubs and scratches behind my ear, but other than that I’m just a happy girl with a lot of love to give! A few of my favorite things are long walks (sometimes I like to sprint), playing fetch with my tennis ball, and being around people who love me. Do you have kids? YAY because I absolutely LOVE kids of all ages! I also love being around other dogs, as long as they’re not too aggressive. I’m a lover not a fighter! Well enough about me, we should meet in person and see if we hit it off! But I’m warning you, you’re probably going to fall in love! Apply to adopt me, Basie, today!

Luckily for him, he is on the road to recovery in a loving foster home. Despite Hank’s healing injury, he still gets around just fine and walks well on leash. He crates in his kennel with no problem, and primarily likes to lay around and be near his humans. He is fond of all the other household pets he has met in his current foster home, including the cats! His play time is limited while he heals, but he enjoys the company of the other canines in the home very much. Hank is pretty smart – he responds when you call him, and is learning other basic commands. He thoroughly enjoys chomping on his nyla-bones, too. Hank has a beautiful shiny black coat with brown accents around his paws and belly, and cute floppy ears to round out his appearance. When he pants, he has the most unique black spot right in the middle of his tongue! It's really quite adorable… Hank is a friendly, happy and carefree guy, despite the setbacks in his life. He is the perfect houseguest and doesn’t jump on people or climb on furniture. He will do well in a household as a single dog, or part of any pack! All in all, Hank is an all-around winner!

She loves other dogs and would love to have a furry friend to run around and play with. While a little timid meeting strangers and children at first, Jillian warms up to people after some time and is very sweet. Jillian is both house trained and crate trained. She gets along very well with other dogs and does not pay much attention to cats. Chewing on and playing with sturdy toys is one of her favorite activities! Jillian loves food and sometimes gets protective over it, so she prefers eating separately from her other dog friends. Jillian loves playing in the backyard and having fun, but also loves just lounging in the sun. She knows how to balance being a very active girl with relaxing outside. Jillian is working on becoming comfortable with a leash, and will learn to love it with some patience and time. Being a very smart and active girl, Jillian loves having things to do, but would do fine in her crate when home alone. An ideal home for her is one with another pup as well as with patient humans who like being active! Jillian is deserving of a wonderful forever home. Could it be with you?

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 200.00. Meet Molly! This pretty gal is a 4 year old Pittie mix, who was found as a stray and appeared to have had a litter at some point. Once with Dallas Pets Alive, it was discovered that she had heartworm and Breast Cancer. Fortunately she has been treated and has recovered fully in her awesome foster home! This girl is known around her foster home as a "people pleaser". She just loves her humans being around! Molly will basically become your shadow, whether it's sitting on the couch relaxing or having coffee on the porch in the morning. She also LOVES kids! Molly may do best in a home where she’s the only pet. She doesn’t so well with cats, and is selective with dogs and slow to warm up to them. She would probably also do best in a home with a yard, as opposed to an apartment. She enjoys long walks, but mostly enjoys having a patio to relax on. She is still learning what to do with dogs toys, but she enjoys chewing on deer antler treats. Molly is house trained, and crate trained, although she prefers to not be crated. She walks well on leash, but does tend to pull – nothing a harness can’t help with! She’s an intelligent pup who is eager to please, so some TLC and training will work wonders for her! Molly’s new leash on life has already jump-started in her foster home, but she’s very deserving of a wonderful fur-ever home! Do you want to give this survivor her new beginning?
