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: Male Male
      Age: Baby
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 250.00. Say hello to Tantor! This little guy was found on the streets, but is learning the ropes of puppyhood in a foster home and hoping his forever home is just around the corner. For now, he's enjoying cuddling with his foster mom, playing with anything in his path, and wiggling his bottom. Tantor is crate training, does well with older kids, and can be particular about his doggie friends. He would do best with other dogs who have a similar energy level. He loves to sit on laps and snuggle with people when he's not playing. His foster mom says his activity level is about a medium, and likens his silly, stocky physique to that of an elephant! Tantor's ideal home is one where he can be the sole attention-getter. He'd like an active family to keep him busy, but also to let him cuddle during down time. Do you think you could handle this little guy? All Dallas Pets Alive adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines upon adoption.

      Breed: Chiweenie
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Chihuahua / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 200.00. Meet Truvy! This sweet dame is a chi-weenie mix who is the prime example of a “rescue dog”. She was rescued from a local shelter, where she came in as a stray with heartworm and clear signs of neglect. While shy at first, she is a perfectly behaved girl who is looking for a new leash on life. Truvy’s foster home is probably the first home she’s ever lived in. From her behaviors and some physical signs, she’s clearly lived outdoors most of her life. She spends most of her time indoors in one of her many doggy beds, and has had to learn how to become a “pet”. She loves being outside, and is friendly with other dogs and people she meets. She would thrive best in a home where she can have access to a quiet backyard, hopefully with another canine companion (or more) to help with her confidence and to buddy up with. She does well on leash and on walks, but her walks are usually slow and short. She is housebroken, and has never had any bad behaviors like chewing or barking. Her biggest obstacle is trusting, so her new family will have to be understanding of this and be patient while she gets comfortable in a new home. People who have watched her while her foster mom was out of town say she's the perfect houseguest! She's come a long way from her scared days at the shelter though! Truvy does well with cats as well, and even guinea pigs! Her foster mom has an over-friendly guinea pig who thinks she’s a dog. She will go into Truvy’s kennel to say hi and hang out (and to snag some of her food), and Truvy is sweet and welcoming to her. She also puts up with goofy kittens that are currently in her foster home! Truvy has had to overcome some physical obstacles, including knee surgery, but she is on her way to a healthy and hopeful future. The hurdles she’s faced are ones she can overcome, and she just needs a loving home to grow old in. Want to give this kind gal the happy ever after she deserves? Apply to adopt Truvy today! Truvy is available for pre-adoption only at this time, as she is heartworm positive. Heartworm disease is a non-contagious and treatable condition in dogs, but is fatal if left untreated.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 200.00. Hi there! My Name is Rusty because of my beautiful rust red coat and gorgeous hazel eyes. I LOVE humans of all shapes and sizes, and my favorite thing is to put my head in your lap or lay next to you on the couch. I help my foster mom clean, work in the backyard, and make dinner. I love interacting with my human friends… and I even like ear scratches from the mailman! I also love tug-o-war and squeaky toys. I’m crate trained, potty trained, and my foster mom has taught me to sleep on my dog bed. She’s also teaching me to heel, sit, stay, and wait for her commands before doing my favorite things. I learned shake in one week and my foster mom is convinced I can learn anything! I love playing with other dogs, but I’m also good at leaving my older foster brother alone. My ideal family would be someone who likes some type of daily activity- either dog park, daily walks, or another dog that also likes to play! On days I don’t get as much activity, I’m still not hyper in the house as long as I have my toys to keep me busy. I greet my foster mom with the cutest happy howl when she gets home. If you’d like to make my happy howl your own and want a lovable, snuggable, playful dog - that’s me!
