Posted Breed: Boxer / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (short coat). DHS does not have a facility. All of our animals are housed in foster homes. Therefore, we require having a completed adoption application on file before we ask our foster families to rearrange their schedules for a meet and greet or answer individual inquiries. And, please be patient, we are staffed only by volunteers. It may be a few days before you hear from us. Helen is a wonderful special needs dog. She is both deaf and blind, but has a wonderful quality of life. She is afraid of nothing and barrels her way through life with carefree abandon. She plays, explores and enjoys life to the fullest with few limitations. In fact, most people don't recognize her handicaps at first. She walks great on a leash, is perfectly housetrained (and barks to go out) and loves to snooze in her crate. She makes friends in the dog park with most dogs but occasionally plays too hard and the other dogs avoid her. Helen was in pretty bad shape when we found her, abandoned at a local creek, so her foster mom has let her get a bit too heavy. She needs to have her food limited because she loves her food, treats and toys. Helen is a great dog! Her handicaps are congenital. All of our adoptable pets are housed with foster families. When age appropriate, they have been spay/neutered, crate, leash and house trained. They have all been living in a family environment so have been evaluated for temperament and personality. We believe that we should know each pet well enough to make sure that when adopted, everyone lives happily ever after. Since all of our animals are housed with fosters, we ask that you submit a completed application before we answer individual inquiries. Submitting an application never obligates you to adopt but we will have a better understanding of your needs so that we can better answer your questions.

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.

He will chase anything that runs from him but won't hurt it when he catches it. And, he does catch a lot (usually the rooster or our cat) because he is fast and can jump the moon. He would make a great agility dog. He is affectionate and learns quickly but he needs gentle corrections as he has been treated harshly in the past and needs confidence.

I was living on a golf course for a while with my puppies before the nice DHS volunteers trapped us. I was scared at first but now I know they were trying to help us. I am about four years old and weigh in at just under 20 pounds but I need to lose a few of those pounds. I'm sweet and gentle, but I can be possessive of my caretakers because I don't want to share attention with the other dogs. But, I don't mind those cat things. I ignore them. Now that I'm living inside, I love it..especially that doggy door. How convenient, if you know what I mean :) I'm healthy too since I finished my heartworm treatment. I am stubborn about walking on a leash. I will just roll over and wait. I prefer to run loose or be carried. I need a fenced yard to play in. And, I will guard my food too. After living in a brush pile and forageing for food, you can't be too careful about sharing it! All of our adoptable pets are housed with foster families.

He's never met another dog or a person (once he knows you) that he doesn't LOVE! Slim was a seizure in a cruelty case and was living on a chain with little care. He was timid and scared. He was severly malnourished and heart worm positive. Despite that, as his waistline expanded so did his love of people and his enjoyment of life. Slim would be a perfect dog for any family, even with smaller children. He knows how to play rough or be gentle and he just lives to please so would be easy to train for anything. You have to meet Slim to appreciate how great a dog he is. And, now that he is healthy, he is beautiful too! Slim is a slight heart worm positive. He is not symptomatic and seems happy and full of life. He will be treated by DHS either prior to or after adoption at our expense. All of our adoptable pets are housed with foster families.
