Posted Breed: Boxer / Border Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Arra was an owner surrender to us. Due to her family being downsized at work and their new place to live does not allow pets. She is a super sweet girl, fully vetted, house broken & crate trained. She loves the water - playing in the sprinkler or in the pool. She is excellent in the car and on walks. Plays well with all the dogs at Casa de Perro Animal Rescue - big, small, old, young - Arra doesn't mind just as long as they like to play as much as she does. She would be a great addition to a family with active kids. She would love to practice soccer or baseball with them. (wink-wink!)

We currently do not have detailed information for this breed. If you would like to provide such information, you can do it here:

Request to Add a New Breed
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: American Pit Bull Terrier-American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Alvarado, TX
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Bella was an owner surrender to the Alvarado Shelter due to the family parting ways and Mom not being able to find a new home that would allow a bully breed. Poor Bella was devastated to see her humans walk away from her. Her sadness has given way to a tail wagging, wiggle butt, smiley faced bundle of sweetness!!! She is very well mannered, house broken, crate trained (tho she doesn't need one), loves walks and car rides, plays well with all the other fosters. Bella has gone on a home visit where we discovered that she would do best in a home that is free of cats. :-) Bella would do wonderfully in a home with children of any age as well as a home with other dogs. Or she would be just as content being an ONLY where she could ooze her way into your lap and watch TV. Please consider give Bella her 2nd forever home! She is such a SWEET, QUIET, LOVING girl.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Alvarado, TX
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Carmella is a ball of energy! She is one happy girl that just wants your attention. She has done well at the Casa - she was transferred from another rescue in San Angelo because of her size and they did not have a foster available. Carmella does well with other dogs - caution is needed however if she is around other females her size or larger. She plays well with all our foster Chi's, our seniors and the current litter of 12 week old puppies, very gentle with them all. Carmella needs to go to a home with older children. If excited, she is a jumper and likes to paw for attention. Sometimes she forgets just how strong she is!! There are several times that she has almost knocked me down. Carmella does know commands and if given with a stern voice - she will calm down quickly. She needs a home where she can have the opportunity to burn off all that energy. With some leash training, she would be a great running buddy.

      Breed: Australian Shepherd-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Alvarado, TX
      Posted Breed: Australian Shepherd / Cattle Dog / Mixed (medium coat). Hannah was estimated to be around 9 years old when we rescued her from the shelter. We don't think that she is that old - there is a lot of spunk in this sweet girl. She's quiet, well mannered, housebroken, crate trained but doesn't need to be kept in one. She know how to use potty pads if the weather is too yucky to go outside. She loves walks and car rides and to patiently watch you eat! Just in case you happen to drop anything, she will be the 1st to catch it for you. LOL We recently just learned that she is H/W positive - even tho the shelter she was pulled from said she "tested" negative. Hannah is currently undergoing treatment and is doing wonderfully thru it.

      Breed: Beagle-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Alvarado, TX
      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Pretty Gryl as she likes to be called and will bow on occasion when called that! She was surrendered to us along with Thor when the family could no longer care for her as she needed. Housebroken, crate trained, does great around small children and cats. Plays well with all our other fosters - big, small, old, young. She loves car rides and walks - though she has not had any real leash training. Silly Gryl has two speeds - super lazy and turbo play. Super lazy = sprawling on the floor and lazily playing with whoever runs by. She will just lay there, if others want to play they have to come to her. Turbo play = NASCAR run thru house, over furniture, out the door, around the yard, back into the house all the while having a pack of puppies on her heels just waiting to dog pile and wrestle. It is rather comical. Gryl would make a great addition to any family. She would also be a great apartment dog as she is relatively small, is quiet and already housebroken & crate trained.

      Breed: Golden Labrador
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Alvarado, TX
      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Sandy was found on dirt road trying to fend off 4 other larger dogs. When we stopped to chase off other dogs, she jumped right into the vehicle! She was scanned for a microchip - none to be found. So she is now part of Casa de Perro's available dogs. She has had her first 2 rounds of boosters. And according to her baby canine teeth that haven't all fallen out yet - she is roughly 5-6 months old. Once her adult canines are coming in, she will be scheduled with our vet to be spayed, get her rabies vaccination and her microchipped. Sandy was rather timid when she first arrived, however she now romps and wrestles with all the other fosters. She minds well-but is definetly still a puppy!!!

She has only been on a leash a few times and will require some patience and training. Clover's Mom, Dixie along with 3 other siblings are still with us, waiting for their fur-ever family to find them.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Alvarado, TX
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Hound / Mixed (short coat). Ruthie was born Oct 23rd with 7 other siblings. Their Mama has been a great mentor for them and has taugt them well. She has already been adopted, so any remaining mentoring they receive is from all the other foster dogs staying at the Casa. She LOVES everyone, is happy and is full of energy. Ruthie is going to be a BIG GIRL when she grows up. She almost looks Coon Hound or Dane mix - big feet, long legs, big floppy ears and droop jowls. She's adorable!! She minds very well and has already learned a few commands. She was the 1st to learn the concept of potty pads and to sit by door when she needs to go out to potty. Ruthie likes to be near you and will just walk up and sit at your feet to watch whatever it is you are doing. She likes to be loved on but is not real sure about being held or snuggled with.

      Breed: Bloodhound-Plott Hound Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Alvarado, TX
      Posted Breed: Plott Hound / Bloodhound / Mixed (short coat). Dixie looks to be a mix between an Plotthound and a Treeing Tennessee dog. She came to us as a stray with a lame leg. Dixie's left hind leg looks to have been injured long ago, possibly from being hit by a car and then never treated. She will use it rarely and when she does it is mostly for balance. There are several scars on her hip and down that leg indicating some severe wounds when she was younger. The leg nor the scars seem to phase this happy girl. Our vet says she may exerience some arthritis when she gets older from those previous injuries but other than that she is healthy as a can be. She plays well with all the foster dogs she lives with. Does well in the car and on walks. Housebroken, crate trained and quiet. Dixie would do well in a home with children or in a home with other dogs. She loves to play ball, so much that she will throw it for herself!! She is a happy go lucky girl.

      Location: Alvarado, TX
      Posted Breed: Akita / Mixed (short coat). Snickers has been in foster care for....5 years, 4 months and numerous days!!!! He's had lots of inquiries, a couple of home visits but has yet to find his fur-ever home. Snickers was rescued from a shelter where his previous owners surrendered him because they had to move. He is a very playful and loving dog. This boy is handsome and has tons of personality. He is well mannered and would like another dog as a companion. He is good with cats, dogs of all sizes and kids. "Snick", "Snicker-doodle" or just plain "Snickers" LOVES to go for walks, play in the sprinklers, swim in a pool, lake, river, pond, watering bucket --- he LOVES the water. And he LOVES his jolly ball!!! He will entertain himself for hours and hours. He also likes to 'talk' to you - this is where you get to hear the Beagle part of his genes!! He's a super sweet boy that just wants to play and be someone's buddy.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Lulu is the HAPPIEST dog you will ever meet! Already well mannered, housebroken and crate trained. She is a rough & tumble girl. She plays well with all size dogs but needs supervision if playing with dogs smaller than her. She is a wiggly butt that loves to snuggle. But does have separation anxiety, so she needs to be in a home with another dog or with someone who is there all the time.
