Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Hi! The name's Dax - and I know... you think I'm adorable. And I am - but I'm so much more! I'm a nine year old Chihuahua snuggle machine - seriously, you will never be cold with me around. I'm also super smart - I know how to sit and stay on command! I'm still working on my house training, but I promise I'm trying to get better! I play well with others - even dogs that are larger than me (not hard to be, am I right?). I'm also super loving and affectionate, and I'm an excellent companion for walks. Seriously, what more could you ask for in a lifetime friend?! Come see me today - let's get this adoption started! For adoption information or information on fostering this sweet boy, or to complete an application, please go to: http://www.pawsinthecity.org/adopt.htm References and a home visit are required for all adoptions.

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.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Meet Eli, a two-year-old lab mix who is waiting for his forever family. He is a friendly dog who is super energetic and ready for a lifetime of fun with his family. Eli plays well with other big dogs who have an equally high energy level and would do best with kids over the age 10. Eli loves walks, but is still learning not to bark when out and about. The more practice he gets with this, the better he will be! Squeaky toys and balls are a big favorite for this guy; flinging them around is such fun! If you are looking for a goofy, fun-loving, active dog, then Eli might be the one for you! Contact us today about meeting Eli - we know you are going to love him as much as we do!

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Hi, my name is Roo and I'm about as cute as they come. I have the most beautiful reddish brown coat, stunning eyes and the cutest ears around! Now, let me tell you a little bit about myself. My foster family is still learning about me but so far they think I'm awesome. They tell me they love watching me learn to 'dog.' See, I came to them really scared and would barely let them touch me but now I am learning that pets and kisses are awesome and my FAVORITE thing to do is run in the backyard with my foster sister. I would probably need a fur sibling to show me the ropes but I came to my foster family already knowing how to go potty outside, I am crate trained and love treats and bones! I still have a lot to learn but I'm excited about this new life. If you have lots of love and patience for a cute pup like me, ask to meet me!

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Mixed. At only eleven pounds I may be small, but I promise I will make your life complete. I'm a cute five year old brown and white spotted Dachshund. I am shy when I first meet people, but once I warm up to you I'm a really friendly boy. I am well behaved, and unlike the real Scooby Doo, I am very calm. I walk nicely on a leash, but when you let me off the leash, I am totally interested in checking everything out my surroundings. I was a stray until Paws in the City rescued me from DAS, but I believe I was someone's pet at one time because I'm just so sweet and well mannered. When are you going to come meet me?

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Hi! I'm zzWinslow (Winny), and I am a young pup. I was found off of Hwy 30 and zzWinslow (by the fair). I was found in pretty rough shape, but I am doing better already. I need to put on a few pounds and my skin condition needs to clear up, but I am eating regularly and on antibiotics. I have a small limp where a car may have hit me. Besides that, the vet says I am a very healthy girl. My foster mom describes me as very affectionate, good natured, lazy, smart, charming, silly, clumsy, cuddly, sweet, and very loyal. I just want to sit next to you and get all the loves. I love to be outside and go on long walks. I am house trained. Since my mom rescued me, I have never had an accident inside. What I really need is a furever home. I love all the attention and would really love a family where I can cuddle and take long walks. My favorite time is when it is just me and my mom. If you want a calm and loving dog then I’m the pup for you. I will love on you every day I can. More about Winny: • Medium-length coat, brown- dark and light • About 40 pounds, but I should be around 50 • Will get fully vaccinated 10/22/16 • House-trained • Gets along with dogs- not cat tested yet but we can if needed.

      Breed: Miniature Pinscher-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher / Mixed (short coat). Meet zzStaley, a Min Pin/Terrier mix, about 4 years old, neutered, short/docked tail, 30 lbs. In good health, current on heart worm prevention and vaccinations. zzStaley's original owner left Staley and his sister crated, alone, in an apt for 12-18 hours a day. Neighbors complained about them crying so the owner surrendered them both. The current foster responded to a Facebook plea and has had zzStaley since January. zzStaley is vey smart. He knows sit and lay. A routine suits him best. He prefers to have his own plastic bowl (metal bowls frighten him) and his own eating area. He is very loving to the person he bonds. And is protective of everyone. When someone cries or yells he tries to figure out the aggressor and will bark/nip until the situation calms down. He is a protector. He is not aggressive with other animals or with people in general. zzStaley needs a calm loving home preferable without small children and maybe as an only dog. He is doggie door trained to potty outside. He would make a fantastic companion for a single woman or a couple without children or an older retired couple.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Anatolian Shepherd / Great Dane / Mixed (short coat). zzScooter is a good boy who is all bark and no bite. He may bark when in his kennel, but once out he is a sweet boy looking for attention. zzScooter is a 3 year old 80lb. lap dog, walks very well on a leash, and is eager to follow commands for a treat. While having a difficult life before arriving at the rescue, zzScooter actively seeks to give affection to people. zzScooter would thrive with having a large backyard to run and play and will be a excellent and loyal dog for any family. He would be a great companion and perhaps running buddy for a single woman who wants a loud bark on the other side of her front door!

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Doberman Pinscher / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Buddy has been through a lot since he was rescued at White Rock Lake by a nice couple . They tried to find someone to take him without much luck and ended up at their Mom's house in Dallas. He was doing fine although not getting enough attention . Unfortunately the next door neighbors are backyard breeding- and one of them attacked Buddy through the fence and he almost lost his foot. He was recovering in the couple's bedroom but they knew they needed a better place for him... that's when we stepped in. No other rescues in Dallas responded to their pleas. We are all so full...but sometimes you just have to make room. He is at the rescue now. He is over his shyness, might be a little slow to trust , but once he knows you he is a doll...he loves to play tug a war with a rope toy, plays with a football, loves to walk on a leash and go in our woods to play. He is a great dog, and will be a terrific protector of his home and family. He likes to protect his food but was said to be living with a Yorkie. Just separate feed bowls and supervision will control the situation. He would do well with some obedience training, but he is a big puppy at about one year old with lots of energy and gives sweet kisses,too. If you think Buddy might fit well into your household, please go to: http://www.pawsinthecity.org/adopt.htm "Buddy is a participant in the Paws in the City Guest Dog Program, so his ongoing care and custody are provided by his foster, not by Paws in the City."
