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: Vizsla / Mixed. PLEASE ASK US ABOUT FOSTERING THIS PUP OR OUR FOSTER-TO-ADOPT OPTION Violet is a very playful, high energy Vizsla mix who loves kids and all dogs! She was born in February 2016. We are currently working on all puppy basics with her like potty training, crate training, walking on a leash, and basic commands. She is very attached to her person and needs a home that will provide consistent training to ensure that she grows to become a well-behaved adult dog. Violet has 4 foster brothers and sisters and definitely enjoys playing and cuddling with them, she's naturally very submissive and enjoys having playmates around. She loves water...playing in sprinklers or swimming in the doggie pool. Violet endured some trauma when she was just a young puppy so she has some intestinal issues and needs to be on a very strict diet. Currently she is eating Victor Super Premium dog food.

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Baby
      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?

      Location: Wylie, TX
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). My name is ​​Bella. I was surrendered to Pup Patrol with a few of my puppies who have since found homes. Now it's my turn! I am a blonde/white Chihuahua, estimated to have been born about 09/2014, and weigh approximately 8 lbs. I have very pretty eyes...one blue and one brown! I am a bit shy until I get to know you, but then I am the perfect furry companion and friend. I know how to use a doggie door but am not completely potty trained without one. I like to play with other dogs sometimes, but I mostly prefer to be with my people. I am a wonderful dog who would make a nice companion. My personality really comes out once I settle in. I love toys and treats....I also like to hide them all in one place. I tolerate small children but would be happier in a home with older children. My foster mom tells me how perfect I am all the time. I sure hope I find my forever family soon so I can show them what a good girl I am!

      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.

      Breed: Great Dane-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Wylie, TX
      Posted Breed: Great Dane / Mixed (medium coat). Hi everyone, my name is Zeppelin! My previous owners said I was "trash" but that's not true! The lady who found me told me that I was precious and sweet. She really wanted to keep me, but knew her work schedule would not allow the time needed for a pup like me so she asked Pup Patrol to help me find a forever home. Now I am in a foster home, I have gotten all my vetting done, and am loving learning how to be part of a family. I am already potty trained and crate trained. I love to have a chewie rawhide or treat because those are my favorite! I will entertain myself with toys, and I like to chase bugs in the back yard. I like to chase a ball too, but I'm not quite sure what to do with it after that. At first I was a little shy when I first met new people and other pups, but I learned pretty quickly that not all people are bad and I love to play with other pups now. I can't tell you what breed I am, but they say maybe some Great Dane due to my long legs and size. What I can tell you is that I was born around the beginning of January 2016, and I currently weigh about 46 lbs but I'm a bit on the lean side and have some growing to do. I have some Huge ears and pretty long legs, and my fur is really soft. I would love to meet you and if you would like to meet me just keep on reading to find out how!

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Wylie, TX
      Posted Breed: Lhasa Apso / Shih Tzu / Mixed (medium coat). Go Wylie Pirates!!! AHMO's family decided after 8-1/2 years that they could no longer care for her and turned her over to Pup Patrol. She is a sweetheart of a pup, but due to her older age we recommend a home with no small children. AHMO (or "MoMo" as her foster Mom calls her) was born approximately February 23, 2007 and currently weighs about 25 lbs (although she could stand to loose a few pounds.) She gets along just fine with other dogs and is good with kitties too. ​She is house and crate trained, but really doesn't need a crate. She loves ear and belly rubs and is especially fond of treats! The longer hair around her ears gets tangled quite a bit, but she's really good about getting them brushed out. She is a sweet, spunky older girl who is looking for a quiet family to spend the rest of her life with.

      Location: Wylie, TX
      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.

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.
