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: Bullypit
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Wylie, TX
      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Sweet Lillyth girl is again looking for her forever home. 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 trained, is great with kids, and fine with other pups and cats. She is mostly house trained, but occasionally has an accident still. She is currently working on leash and basic obedience training and coming along quite nicely. She will need a family that will continue working with her and give her an energy outlet through walks and playtime.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Wylie, TX
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Jack is a sweet Pit Bull mix boy that would love to find his real furever home. You see, he was adopted when he was just a puppy, but he and his fur sibling just couldn't get along so he was returned to the rescue. He is a good boy who knows how to walk nice on leash and also some basic obedience commands. He can do a few tricks too...he knows shake & speak. He is house and crate trained. He would be great as an only dog or with another calm or submissive pup. Jack is about 2 years old and currently weighs about 90 lbs, but he could stand to loose a few. His goal weight is about 75-80 lbs. He loves taking walks so it won't be very hard to get him to his goal. He is a very sweet, low key pup.

      Posted Breed: Flat-coated Retriever / Border Collie / Mixed (medium coat). Please contact DFW Pup Patrol (info@dfwpuppatrol.com) for more information about this pet. Hi, I'm Clementine (aka "Remi")! I have had a hard road, but it has gotten better lately! I was rescued from an area in SE Dallas that is a known dumping ground for dogs - dead and alive - and I am so fortunate that some nice people got me the heck outta there! I am about 6 to 7 years old and very sweet, although I can be a bit shy at first. I co-exist with other dogs who don't bug me, but I'm not really a player; I much prefer to just hang out with my person. Kitties are just fine as well. When I was first rescued, I had a case of heartworms so severe that heartworms were found in the biopsy done of the tumor on my tail! But that's all behind me now - I had a lengthy heartworm treatment, and finally got that tumor off of my tail, which turned out to be benign! Now all I need to complete my journey to a better life is my forever home. Is that with you? I am housetrained and crate trained.

      Zoey

      rescue
      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Husky Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Wylie, TX
      Posted Breed: Husky / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (medium coat). Zoey is a Shepherd/Husky mix pup. She’s about 3 years old, weighs approximately 50 lbs. When she originally came into our recue she was intercepted on her way to the shelter where her former parents were going to surrender her. Roxy then got adopted from us by a wonderful committed gentleman who has now been unexpectedly admitted into a nursing home and unfortunately will remain there, so he is no longer able to care for Zoey. She’s a smart dog! She has been learning some obedience, walks well on a leash, and is housetrained. She’s working on crate training and is fine in one; kind of likes it actually, but she has some separation anxiety that is elevated when crated. Zoey’s energetic, playful, loves to walk, loves car rides and loves to swim. She does talk some (what Husky doesn't?). She is a clean dog and doesn’t shed very much at all. She does have some possession issues and will guard things she perceives as hers; toys, food, people she trusts, things like that. We’ve been working on that and have made quite a bit of progress. She’s not especially dog reactive, but she would probably be happier if she were the only dog.

      Breed: Border Collie-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Wylie, TX
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Mixed (short coat). This sweet girl is Roxy and we believe she is a Smooth Coated Border Collie mix who is estimated to have been born around March, 2016 and weighs 29 lbs. So far she’s had a pretty tough time, been surrendered to shelters twice in her short life at no fault of her own, just very much a lack of commitment on her human owner's part. We’re going to make sure she finds a permanent family this time. Roxy has learned how to Sit and Heel on command and also knows Down, Place and Come. She loves to learn new commands and is eager to please her leader. She is housetrained, crate trained, and knows how to use a dog door. She loves car rides and playing fetch. She’s a little shy when meeting new folks, but warms up quickly once she knows you’re safe. Roxy is extremely lovable, cuddly, and gentle. She loves to be on your lap, get belly rubs, and even seems to love it when you sing to her. She gets along great with all other dogs we’ve had her with.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Sadie is a sweet, sweet Pitbull girl! She was saved from the shelter after her owners did not come pick her up. 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. She will make a great family member!!

She loves being held and petted. She is crate trained and is learning potty training and how to use a doggie door. We think she will do best in a calm environment, but she is very social.

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix

      Location: Wylie, TX
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). My name is Dak. I was born around June of 2016. I am a black, male Chihuahua mix and weigh around 4 lbs currently. I am a very handsome boy with the cutest brown eyebrows. I was surrendered to DFW Pup Patrol by my previous owner who said he could not care for me. I am a healthy boy who loves to run and play. I know how to use a doggie door and for the most part am potty trained. I need a family who will be patient with me and continue to work with me on my manners and potty training. Since I’m still a baby I don’t always listen to my foster parents when they tell me “no”. I love having lots of toys to chew on. My teeth are pretty sharp so I need appropriate chew toys or I will find something to chew on! I am very affectionate and love to sleep in bed with my foster parents. I am still learning to jump but will scratch at the edge of the bed if I want to be picked up. I love to play and wrestle with my foster siblings. I am very submissive and will lie on my back when playing. I am just learning about the leash so I will need additional training. Don’t I sound like a lot of fun? I am a bundle of joy and love in a small package! I know my perfect forever family is out there. Could it be with you?

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.
