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.

      Location: Wylie, TX
      Posted Breed: Pointer / Mixed (short coat). Hi there! The name's Mili. I'm a sweet 3 year-old Pointer Mix just looking for my new home. The Pup Patrol took me in when my family could no longer take care of me, but that's okay because that means some other lucky family is going to take me in! A little bit about me- I love to play with all things... dogs, cats (even though they don’t love to play with me), and kids! I may be a little big- around 60 pounds and I can actually stand to loose a few- but I know how to be gentle; I'm a little on the submissive side. I know when it's time to calm down though. I'm house trained AND crate trained! I do need to be in my crate though when I'm alone since I can get a little anxious when I'm not with my human. So what else is there to think about? Adopt me!

      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 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.

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

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Please contact DFW Pup Patrol (info@dfwpuppatrol.com) for more information about this pet. PADOPTED - 2016 PER LARION Hey everyone! Opie here, or Dopie Opie as my foster family lovingly calls me. I am a goofy pup with lots of energy. I am a personable and precious Labrador Retriever mix boy weighing approximately 60 lbs and they estimate I was born about July of 2015. I had an owner at one time, but apparently they didn't want me anymore. I wandered up to someone's house with a leash wrapped around my neck. The owner of the home was just about to have a new baby so they had no room in their home for me, which is how I ended up at a local city Animal Shelter. It just so happens it was my lucky day as a Pup Patrol volunteer was there picking up another pup and fell in love with me! She waited until my stray hold was up then came right back to get me when my family never showed up. I get along great with other dogs and kids....I'm overly excited about cats, so a home with no cats is probably better for me. I am quite fit and athletic and can clear a 6-foot fence with no problem, so please have a tall secure fence that will keep me in. I cannot be left alone outside all day as I will find a way out. I am crate trained and should be crated when you are gone. I will need a loving, committed family who has the necessary time to spend with me as I am very social, love my exercise, love to learn, and must be a forever integral part of a family. I love to play fetch and will bring you back the toy you throw. I am housetrained and I know how to sit and shake already.

      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 his fur sibling just couldn't accept him and didn't like him, 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 of any size. Jack is about 2 years old and currently weighs about 80 lbs. He loves taking walks and is a very sweet, loyal, cuddly 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.

      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.
