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.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Lily Belle is a sweet little Chi-Chi mix who was saved from a rural kill shelter. She is all of 5 lbs and is about 6 years old. She loves to be near her person (if you back up you have to make sure she's not behind you first!) and loves to snuggle under the covers. She's not too interested in toys. She is working on potty training and doing really well. She's not a fan of the crate, but she does well in there when her foster Mom is gone. She gets SO excited to see her return! She's fine with other pups. She'd be great as an only pup or with others.

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      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.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Sadie is a sweet, sweet Staffordshire Pitbull girl! She was saved from the shelter after she was found wandering out alone and her owners did not come to pick her up. Sadie is good with other dogs, and loves to play. She loves people and she is good with kids too! She loves treats and toys, has learned some basic obedience, and walks 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. Sadie is a little over 2 years old and she currently weighs around 65 lbs. We believe she will do best in a home with another doggy friend for her to play with.

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Australian Kelpie / Mixed (medium coat). Say hello to the sweetest southern pup, Harlee Ann! We believe she is a Shepherd/Australian Kelpie mix who has a gorgeous reverse brindle coat (and have you seen her 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 have been born around 04/17/14 and weighs approximately 52 lbs. She would do best in a home with a doggie friend and lots of rope toys to chew on! She really is very much a puppy at heart!!!
