Posted Breed: Boston Terrier / Jack Russell Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Little Bit was born 11 February, 2014, the son of a Jack Russell (Mom) and a Boston Terrier (Dad). Both were very loving animals. Lil’ Bit is very playful. He loves with his mom (the Jack Russell), and playing chase with her. He also enjoys playing with his foster’s grandkids, ages 3 and 8. He learned to "sit" and be still for a treat. Before being taught to sit for his treat, he would literally steal a treat out of his mother’s mouth. But he’s now learned to sit very still, let his Mom eat her treat… and wait to be given his. Despite his enthusiasm for food and treats, he’s never attempted or threatened to bite. I feed the dogs and he is not aggressive around his food. Little Bit DOES always wants to be the center of attention. He has medium to big paws and does not realize he is not the same little pup that would fit into your palm two+ years ago. He's a smart boy who quickly learned the rules of where to potty, and loves being with another dog to play. Follows his foster around the house and plops down by her feel whenever she sits. He loves to play with his toys, or his foster’s grandkids toys. As a puppy he chewed things but has learned to confine his chewing to "chew toys"! Little Bit lives with a small, older female Chihuahua, but she likes no one and no other dogs. When he tries to play with her and she bites his nose (she only has a couple of teeth left), he'll look at her as if she's just a confusing playmate. He is so curious when out on walks. If you feel your home might be the right place for this wonderful dog, the place to start is with the adoption application found at www.dfwrescueme.org/adopt. Once submitted, the foster will contact you to tell you more, and to arrange a meeting! "This handsome dog is a participant in the DFW Rescue Me Guest Dog Program, so their ongoing care and custody are provided by their foster, not by DFWRM."

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: Boxer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Bella is an outgoing, active girl who loves people and kids! She needs to be an only dog in the home, but is extremely responsive to commands. She was thrown from a truck as a puppy and has been bounced from home to home through no fault of her own. She grew up with other dogs but the stress that she has been under has made her a bit unpredictable living with other dogs - so she unfortunately has to stay in her kennel much of her day at her foster home because of the other dogs. Luckily, she LOVES her kennel and will run to her kennel when asked even from across the house! She loves kids and has been exposed to all ages of children since she was a puppy. She loves stuffed animals and antler bones, but if not exercised, she will unstuff her toys out of boredom. She knows all basic commands and loves to run! Bella is such a sweet girl who deserves to live a life outside of a kennel with a family of her own! She will come with a full year’s worth of heartworm and flea prevention and is spayed and completely up to date on vaccines! If adopted in the Dallas area, she will also come with unlimited private training lessons to make sure her new family is off to the right start and continue that for the rest of her life. We need to make sure her new home really will be her FINAL forever home! She deserves at least that! If you feel your home might be the right place for such a great dog - the place to start is with the adoption application found at www.dfwrescueme.org/adopt. Once submitted, the foster will contact you promptly to tell you more and to arrange a time to meet!

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Female, Boxer mix, white with brown spots, short-haired, neutered, micro-chipped, potty-trained, 3.5 years old, ~40 pounds Hello, my name is Sylvia. I am an outgoing, affectionate 3.5 year old boxer mix that wants to find my forever home. I am a sweet girl that enjoys playing and running as well as lounging and being a snuggle-bug. I will always happily accept belly rubs (my favorite!), walks, and treat toys. I was originally adopted when I was less than a year old; however, I got separated and have not been able to be reunited as the contact information had a disconnected number. I am currently a guest with a family that found me on August 2nd (that's in Tarrant County, Fort Worth 76107) and temporally took me in. They would keep me, but they already have a full house. It would be great if I could be your one and only four-legged child. One look in my eyes will tell you that I will love you forever. I REALLY want to be the only pet in the home. Thanks for considering adopting me, Sylvia So if you’re interested in adding a sweet, affectionate young girl like Sylvia to your family, (one who can even right her own bio!!) please start at www.dfwrescueme.org/adopt to complete and submit the adoption application found there. Her foster will contact you promptly to tell you more about her, and to arrange a meeting for you!

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Dozer can sit, play fetch, and he gets what we like to call the "zoomies" when he gets super excited. He loves to play tug of war, and he can play for hours if you let him. He DOES NOT like to be left alone for long periods of time. He needs to have a fence 10 ft, or taller. He is a jumper and a runner. He loves going for walks, and is gonna need more leash training. He doesn't like other dogs or cats and would probably do best in a home with kids 12+. He is scared of fireworks and thunder. He likes the water but doesn't enjoy baths. He likes to get snuggles and kisses before bed and his favorite spot to sleep is at your feet. He really is a good dog that will bring you a lot of happiness. He just needs to go to the right home. He LOVES cheese. He loves toys too, but the rope toys he'll eat. He likes to tear apart the plush doggy toys and burry the squeaker. He used to burry all his squeaks in my couch, so when you would sit down my couch would squeak. He has so much love to give. He had parvo as a baby, but is doing great now. He is a good boy and he needs loving patient people around him. Please consider adding Dozer to your family! Dozer is a participant in the DFWRM Guest Dog Program, so his ongoing care and custody are provided by his foster, not by DFWRM.
