Posted Breed: Boxer / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Meet Mickey! This four-year-old Boxer/Pibble mix is a big ball of love, and he's patiently waiting for the perfect family to scoop him up and love on him forever. But while he waits, he's learning how to be the perfect pup in a loving foster home! Mickey's foster mom says she's never seen such a loving dog, nor one that is so eager to please his family and show them what a good boy he is. He is already crate-trained, and has not had one accident in his foster home. He also loves his vast array of toys - ropes, squeaker toys, you name it. He loves them all! Mickey is also incredibly affectionate. He likes to "hold hands" with his foster mom by leaving his paw on her leg until she holds his paw in return. Mickey's ideal home is one where he's the only dog. He loves kids! Most importantly, his forever family needs to appreciate how much he loves them and cherishes them. Think you could be the family Mickey's been searching for? Mickey is famous! He was featured on CW33's "Ruff Life" - check him out in action here: http://cw33.com/2015/07/21/ruff-life-let-mickey-join-your-club/ All Dallas Pets Alive adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines upon adoption.

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-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Dallas, TX
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. This spotted beauty is Zephyr! She’s a 3 year old female Pitbull, who has never met a stranger! She is the happiest girl, who just loves people and the human connection. She’s a strong girl with a gentle spirit, who has all the wonderful qualities one looks for in a pup! Zephyr is housetrained but fears crates, which could stem from her negative past. The good news is that she won’t go potty in the house, and she also won’t damage things in the house. She is very trainable and learns fast. She enjoys playing with other dogs, and trips to the dog park…she even loves the car ride there! She has done well around kids, as well as cats. Zephyr will need a home that can provide daily walks or runs and/or a backyard. She is calm but energetic, depending on her stimuli. A home with another dog or 2 would be great, as she tends to interact better one-on-one with other dogs. Wouldn’t you love to welcome this sweet girl into your home?

      Breed: Parson Russell Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Dallas, TX
      Posted Breed: Parson Russell Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Roo is four years old, and is a 50 pound parson russell terrier mix. With snow white wire fur, and the cutest semi-erect ears one will probably ever see, this sweetheart is looking for her happily furever after. Roo was actually brought into the city shelter as a puppy, and was diagnosed with parvo, a very deadly virus soon after. She struggled and finally beat it... ROO IS A PARVO SURVIVOR! A bit of a princess, Roo would do best in a quiet, stable home. She can be dog selective, so she would do best in a single-dog home where she can soak up all of your affection, or in a home with male dogs around her size or larger - she loves to play and run with the big boys! She prefers a home with no small children or cats. She really enjoys the outdoors, and has proven to be an excellent mouser (who needs a cat when you've got Roo on the task?). Roo knows some basic commands, is crate- and house-trained; she is a great girl! While some might say she's picky, we say she's just got high standards! We know the perfect family is out there for her... could it be you? All Dallas Pets Alive adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines upon adoption.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Dallas, TX
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Looking for a best buddy? Someone to follow you around the house or just to be near you? Maybe someone you can have long conversations with and really feel like he gets you on a deeper level? Then check out Skip! Skip is a super laid back dude, with a dash of silly at times, who just wants to be part of the family and please you. He will even let you dress him up in hats and costumes! He is very polite, asking nicely with his soulful doggy eyes if he can please sit with you on the couch. He’s mastered the art of rearranging loose pillows which has earned him the nickname of “Couch Monster”. Skip is potty trained, crate trained (although it's not really needed), doggy door trained, and does well on a leash. He may not know a lot of commands, but he is very good at reading your intent and what you want him to do - and he falls into new routines with ease. He is active and loves getting out and about on walks, but doesn’t need a crazy amount of exercise to be happy. Skip loves other dogs. When he first meets them, especially if he is on a leash, he can come across as a bit cautious - but within a couple of minutes he is more relaxed with a full tail wag. He does exceptionally well with small dogs! Skip has even had a dog bark right in his face, and he just let him! Soon after they were playing together. As good as he is with other dogs, Skip does not do well with cats and needs to go to a kitty-free home. Does Skip sound like the perfect pup for you? He sure would like to meet you!

      Location: Dallas, TX
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hi, I’m Alexi, the sweetest Pit Bull you will ever meet! I am loving, friendly and enjoy the company of other dogs who are easygoing like me. Do you know what I love even more than my furry friends? Humans! I adore them and love all the affection I can get… and I have no problem giving it back! I like treats like cheese and chicken and I love going on car rides with my people. I enjoy a good nap but I like being outside too. In fact, when the weather is nice, you might find me outdoors sunbathing! One of my favorite things to do is go to doggy daycare. I’m really popular there, if I do say so myself. I’ve already made lots of friends there! While I’m a superstar at daycare, I really shine at home too. I am crate trained (I love it in there!), housebroken and I'm learning to walk well on a leash. My foster parents were told I am seven years old but they think I may be between 5 and 7. I may be older but I still have a lot of life and, more importantly, a lot of love to give. I am a sweet, special dog who would love nothing more than to find a forever home for my golden years! I'm famous! I was featured on CW33's Ruff Life.

      Breed: Poodle (Miniature)-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Dallas, TX
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed. Meet Roussel! Or "Roo" for short, since his bark sounds more like "rooo roooo roooo" instead of a normal bark. This poodle is an older guy - he's around 11 years old. He's living in a foster home where he can get some much needed quiet times, since he can get a little anxious. (At 11 years old, who can blame him!?) Roo is house trained and good with other dogs and cats, as long as they give him his space. He can't see anymore, so he gets nervous if there's potential to get stepped on. He's also a strong-willed guy, so he enjoys pets on the head, but only on his terms. Once he gets to know his people, he lets his quirky personality show. Roo's safe space is his big, soft bed, which is where he goes to decompress and relax. He also loves his foster's bedroom, so once he gets in there he's happy to roll around and play. Roo's ideal home is one without kids, due to his anxiety. He would do great in a home with older owners who have lots of quiet time and patience to help him through his nervous spells. Roo's best qualities are his loving personality and his penchant for relaxing! He enjoys being a couch potato...could you find room on your couch for him?

      Location: Dallas, TX
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Hi, I'm Baku! A 5 year old pitbull mix who has overcome a lot in my life, and am enjoying the second chance I've been given! I like to lie around and relax, preferably with a human or a stick or tough toy to chew on. I enjoy walks but mostly to sniff, pee on things, and to get a breath of fresh air. Sun bathing is a favorite past time in-between naps and eating. Oh, eating! I'm a great snacker and enjoy cantaloupe, raw almonds, steamed asparagus, frozen bananas, apple slices, and baby carrots. I can moonlight as an oven timer, nearly hitting the ready mark every time. I'm learning to dog and enjoy playing fetch although I am not quite sure about waiting for it to be thrown. I know how to sit, come, and go to bed. I understand the word “no” but do sometimes question it if you're a softy. I am house trained and have never had an indoor accident and I sleep through the night, even putting myself to bed most nights. I'm gentle and sweet and act out anything I don't want to do by either running away or deploying dead weight. I love all adult humans, even the mail man and the guys that mow my yard. I may look the part, but I'm no guard dog. The more the merrier, I say! I'd really like to be an only pup as I'm kind of an attention hog and a little fearful of other dog's intentions. I've been through a lot but have moved past the wounds, surgery, heart worms, mange, and torn ears. Through it all, I have blossomed into a confident, happy, calm and sometimes silly boy that just enjoys the simple things in life. And I'm quite handsome with a touch of character if I don't say so myself! I can't wait to meet you! Apply for me today!
