Posted Breed: Terrier / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Just look at this sweet face!! Rascal’s life was a little rough until his foster mom spotted him at the Corpus Christi Animal Control shelter and could not resist him!! Having been a street dog, he sat terrified in a corner of the shelter until his time was up. Poor guy - he had demodectic mange and was completely unsocialized. He refused any human contact in the beginning but with the help of all the other dogs in the pack and the fact that his foster mom could see his potential, he has blossomed into one of his foster mom's very favorite rescue dogs!! Rascal has a very funny personality. He's great with all dogs and plays and plays- and prefers to play with the big dogs! He loves to be held and will fall asleep with a little scratching but he's an independent guy. He is not needy and he is just as happy to entertain himself and hang out with the other dogs. Rascal will need someone that is willing to be patient and earn his trust. They will never regret their decision to give this boy a chance. He's one of the coolest dogs we know!! Rascal is heart worm negative, microchipped, up to date on his vaccinations and he is neutered. His adoption fee is $150. If you would like more information or an adoption application, please call Rascal's foster mom at (210) 464-0160 or email her at Redbarnkennel1863@gmail.com

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: German Shepherd Dog
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. Adoption Fee: 150.00. Darla is a 2-3 year old German Shepherd rescued from the streets of San Antonio. She was very thin and heartworm positive when found but has since been through treatment. She is looking for a home where she can be the only dog. She is potty trained and crate trained and is very food and toy motivated so additional training should be easy for her. She loves her ball and she loves to go for walks or runs. She is great with kids but I would recommend kids over the age of 8 just because of her size and energy level. Darla is available for adoption with Saving Grace Dog Rescue of San Antonio. The adoption fee is $150.00. An adoption application, home visit and adoption contract are all required. All dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations appropriate for their age, microchipped, and wormed for internal and external parasites. If you would like more information or an adoption application, please email us at sgdrsa@outlook.com. Please note that visual breed identification in rescue dogs is unreliable so for most of our dogs we are only GUESSING at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Shih Tzu / Mixed (medium coat). Adoption Fee: 150.00. Hi, my name is Diamond and I have been told that I am adorable and very sweet. I bet you will think so too if you come to meet me. I am a pretty typical puppy and my favorite thing is to play and wrestle all day. I am a little timid when I first meet new people but it doesn’t take me very long to warm up and give kisses. Just please remember that I am a puppy and I am still learning how to be a “grown up” dog and I will need patience and love so I can learn how to be a good dog. I am doing pretty good with my potty training but I am not perfect at it because I still have accidents if I am busy playing and forget. I think that is where the love and patience thing comes in. Diamond is available for adoption with Saving Grace Dog Rescue of San Antonio. The adoption fee is $150.00. An adoption application, home visit and adoption contract are all required.

She went through heartworm treatment and will need to remain on heartguard. She is crate trained and potty trained. She loves people and other dogs. I'll let her tell her story: "I once was owned by people who marked my belly and bred me for puppies. I spent all day and night outside, wondering when I would eat and have shelter. I spent much of my life alone, not knowing anything about the world outside my yard. I eventually escaped and wandered into a yard with lots of food, water, and love. I learned about couches, toys, and met some great dogs. I spend my days inside now, often cuddling on the couch and dog beds. I spent most of my life outside, so now I am soaking up the cushioned life! I love the people who saved me, I show my appreciation all the time with cuddles and protection. I follow their every move. I love my 2 pup brothers, and often play and cuddle with them. I'm very happy and grateful for my new life!" Paige is available for adoption with Saving Grace Dog Rescue of San Antonio.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Whippet / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). My name is Manny and believe it or not, my foster mom says I am a Chippet. She thinks I am a Chippet because she says I have a lean body, long legs and the personality of a Whippet but my face looks like a Chihuahua. I think I am more like a short Whippet because I am quiet and docile and I am quite content to curl up on the couch all day. But when I get out in the yard, I come alive and have lots of energy and I can run really fast. I am a little shy and it takes me some time to familiarize with a stranger but, once acquainted, I will be my usual friendly and social self. I have a very sensitive nature so I would be unhappy in a large family with lots of children as chaos makes me anxious. My foster mom says I would be a perfect dog for a single person or empty nesters because I am not rowdy and rambunctious like some other dogs. Because I have a very thin coat and not much body fat, I like to find a warm spot in the house and will settle in as long as it is close enough to you. I don’t mind being out in the cold as long as I am moving or running, but it would certainly be cruel to leave me outside for extended periods of time in cold weather. Manny is available for adoption with Saving Grace Dog Rescue of San Antonio. The adoption fee is $150.00. An adoption application, home visit and adoption contract are all required.
