Posted Breed: Border Collie / Australian Kelpie / Mixed (medium coat). Please contact DFW Pup Patrol (info@dfwpuppatrol.com) for more information about this pet. Rocky was a dog that was kept outside all the time....he never got to go indoors, take walks, or leave his yard. When he escaped one day and was hit by a car, his family did not have the means to get him to a vet. Another rescue stepped in and paid for his surgery, and then fully vetted him! After all that the family decided to surrender him, and now he is patiently waiting his REAL furever home. He is estimated to be around 4-5 years old, and currently weighs about 50 lbs. He is a shy boy that is finally learning what being part of a family is. He is crate and house trained, is fine with cats, loves other dogs, and is good with children. Rocky will do best in a home where he has at least one other pup to be with. He has been through some basic obedience training, walks well on leash, and is well behaved. He loves to snuggle and be with his humans.

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: Basenji-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Wylie, TX
      Posted Breed: Cattle Dog / Basenji / Mixed (short coat). Adopted - 10/16 per TSELF Boscoe was found wandering all alone near the Houston area. Turned out he was microchipped so the founder took him back to his family where she was told they deliberately drove him out and dumped him!!! Well their stupidity is someone else's new amazing family member, because Boscoe is truly amazing! This boy is FAST!!! He is a high energy pup who loves other dogs and his people. (He is fine with kitties too.) He is already house trained, knows how to sit and lay down on command, and learned how to shake in a matter of minutes! He is extremely smart. He also loves water and wading in the pool. Boscoe currently weighs 67 lbs but could stand to loose a few pounds. He is around 2 years old. As far as breed we are stumped. We've had suggestions of Cattle dog, Bull Terrier, Catahoula, Basenji, Great Dane....He sure is an adorable pup though with one crystal clear blue eye and one brown. He is working on crate training and learning not to bolt out doors. He loves going for car rides and would makes a great running or biking companion! He will need a family that can give him the mental stimulation and exercise he needs.

      Location: Wylie, TX
      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Sami is an adorable, sweet Staffordshire Terrier puppy that was found wandering the streets all alone at just a few months old. Attempts were made to find her family, but sadly no one claimed her. She is currently around 35 lbs and was born in November of 2016. She will be a nice medium sized girl when she's all grown up. Sami LOVES toys! She will entertain herself playing with them, and it's too cute to watch her. She is good with other dogs, curious about cats... maybe a little excitable with them, and good with kids too! She is almost housetrained and is good in her kennel...especially if she has her comfy blankies in there. Sami is working on learning some basic obedience and manners and is proving to be a smart girl!

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Wylie, TX
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Say hello to the sweetest southern pup, Harlee Ann! This darling dog is pure mutt, but we believe she is a Shepherd mix (have you seen those ears)? She is housetrained and working on crate training. She is a little shy at first, but is quick to come around with a few treats and belly rubs. She was found as a stray so she is working on building confidence and basic obedience skills. The noises of cars on the streets is still a fearful thing for this girl, so continued structured walks will help relieve those fears over time. Her big ol’ ears hear everything, so she is picking up commands quickly. Once she is comfortable in an environment she is happy to play with people and other pups. Harlee Ann is estimated to be around 3 years old and right now weighs approximately 45 lbs, but could stand to gain a few more. She would do best in a home with a doggie friend and lots of rope toys to chew on!

      Posted Breed: Beagle / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Hi my name is Jojo and I am approximately 2 years old and weigh a nice size of about 40 lbs. I was surrendered to the Pup Patrol when my owner couldn't take me with him to his new military base. They think I am a Beagle/Labrador mix. I am good with children and other dogs, but not so much with cats. I do get excited easily; I need an owner that has patience and can continue working with me. I love to run and play outside. I am crate trained, potty trained with a dog door, and I know how to sit and shake. Now I do get a little possessive over my food so it's best to not feed me around your other pups. Want to meet me?

      Posted Breed: Red Heeler / Mixed (medium coat). Hi! I'm Eli puppy and my foster Mom nicknamed me "Roo"! I was living in a drainage ditch in a bad part of town when this nice lady found me and brought me home. She gave me a bath to get all those nasty biting bugs off me and filled my belly with food, then Pup Patrol brought me to the vet to get all checked out. I am ready to find my forever home now! I am such a good puppy...hardly any potty accidents, but you need to take me out often because I'm still very young (I was born in January). I don't mind my crate and sleep through the night without a peep. I LOVE other pups! I'm good with kids and I love to take walks and go for runs with my foster Mom. By the way....did you see how CUTE I am? What are you waiting for? ​*Red Heelers are high energy working dogs that need plenty of outlets for their energy. **Eli still needs to be neutered so can not be adopted out of the area.

Through absolutely no fault of her own this sweet puppy is looking for her 3rd home in less than a year! Her first owners didn't want her anymore after finding out they were having a baby, and her second owner didn't want her anymore after deciding dogs were too much work and she wasn't a cute, little puppy anymore. Lillyth was born in February 2016, currently weighs about 70 lbs, and is still a puppy! She is crate and house trained, is great with kids, and good with other pups and cats too. She does well leash walking using a Halti headcollar and knows some basic obedience. She loves to snuggle with her human, snores a little when she sleeps, and is as lovable as they come! She will need a family that will continue working with her and give her an energy outlet through walks and playtime.

      Location: Wylie, TX
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Spaniel / Mixed (medium coat). We believe Monty is a Chihuahua/Spaniel mix estimated to have been born in May, 2012. He may have some Rat Terrier in him as well. He weighs about 14 lbs. He loves attention and to cuddle with his person. He is an obedient pup and loves to please. He does currently take medication (Prozac) for anxiety and should be in a home without small children. Once he gets settled in a new calmer and quieter forever home we have every reason to believe he can at that point be completely weaned off of his anxiety medication. Monty would do best as an only dog where he can get all the attention his little heart desires.

Sadie is good with other dogs, but likes to play rough. She loves people and can be a little timid if the people around her are too loud. She is good with kids! She loves treats and toys, can sit on command, and walks pretty well on a training collar. Sadie is already house trained and is fine in her crate while her people are gone. She is a pretty good escape artist so she will need a yard with a tall, secure fence. We believe Sadie is a little over 2 years old and currently weighs 57 lbs but can stand to gain a few.
