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.

      PENNY

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: San Antonio, TX
      Posted Breed: Cattle Dog / Mixed (short coat). Meet Penny. Her foster mom says she is one of the sweetest puppies she has ever had! Penny is very loving towards people and other dogs alike. She is kind of shy in nature, but she warms up very easily. Once you have her heart, she loves to give kisses, cuddles, and will often nudge her head under your chin. Her eyes show her appreciation to be in a loving home. She is crate trained and potty trained. She sleeps quietly in her crate at night, although I'm sure she'd love to cuddle in bed with you if you let her. She is very smart and easy going. She likes to lay on the couch with the other lazy dogs in her foster home, but she also loves to play outside when they have their spouts of energy. She is not hyper, doesn't chew on things (other than the occasional blanket in her crate). She is so well mannered and easily one of the best puppies her foster mom has ever fostered. She knows our routine very well, and has integrated in her foster home so quickly! Her foster mom can't say enough great things about her! She has a funny quirk about her when napping . . . anytime she moves, she lets out a long sigh/grunt that sounds adorable! She deserves the best home! Penny 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.

      Location: San Antonio, TX
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Shih Tzu / Mixed (medium coat). 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. All dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations appropriate for their age, microchipped, and wormed for internal and external parasites.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: San Antonio, TX
      Posted Breed: Hound / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). My name is Dixie and I am looking for a forever home. I thought I found my forever home when I was a cute puppy. My forever home lasted for two years and then my family decided I needed a new forever home. They said I didn’t do anything wrong but things changed and they could no longer keep me. My foster mom loves me and she says I deserve the best home ever because I am such a good girl! I am an outgoing, playful and gentle gal who will provide you with not only companionship but also unconditional love. I am looking for an active person or family who will take me for walks and let me be a member of the family. At the end of the day, I’ll delight in snuggling up in your lap and soaking up all the affection you give me and I’ll give you all of my love in return. My foster mom laughs because she says I don’t realize that I am not a small lap dog. I am medium size but I am still a lap dog, right? In my first home, I was an only pet. I probably would not do well with a cat and I get along with most dogs but I don’t like dogs that play rough and invade my space. We are not sure what breed I am but I am friendly like a lab and have long legs and am “vocal” like a hound (especially when I am playing). Dixie 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.

      JOJO

      rescue
      Breed: American Bulldog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: San Antonio, TX
      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). COURTESY POSTING: JoJo does not belong to Saving Grace Dog Rescue of San Antonio and is being posted as a courtesy only. Meet JoJo. He is an American Bulldog who is about 7 years old, weighs 100 lbs., and was saved from a San Antonio high kill shelter with an hour to spare. His story is a long one. JoJo was found after being hit by a car, which led to the amputation of his tail. He had been severely beaten by a homeless man, was heartworm positive, covered in tumors and a weighed measly 78 lbs. He was nursed back to health by his loving foster mom who eventually adopted him out to a new home. Sadly, the adopting family did not hold up their end of the adoption agreement and his foster mom had to go save him one more time. He once again is looking for his very own forever home. JoJo would do best as an only dog, he does not like cats at all, but he does love all people including kids! He favorite things are laying on the couch or laying in your lap and sleeping while you rub his tummy!! More than anything else in the world, he loves to be cuddling with his human. JoJo is up to date on all vaccinations and is neutered. He is currently on heartworm prevention and his new person will be provided with heartworm prevention through January. JoJo is also crate and house trained, but he does not need to be crated when left alone as he is usually napping. If you think he is a match made in heaven, please contact us to find out more information. He is currently in San Antonio, Texas, and a local adoption would be great but transport anywhere in the U.S. is absolutely possible!

      Breed: Chihuahua-Whippet Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: San Antonio, TX
      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.

This poor girl was found in Olmos Park where she was most likely dumped by her owner. Hailey is UNBELIEVABLY intelligent. She would be the perfect partner for someone looking to do some obedience work. She is a great student and a really fast learner. She is very motivated by food. She came to stay at Red Barn Kennels because she needed a little direction- she is a heeler:):) and she will take over if not given appropriate boundaries. She is very dog friendly and is used to behavioral test all of the dogs that come to stay at the kennel. She is very well socialized but would do just as well in an only dog home as she bonds to her person much more than another dog. Hailey does mildly resource guard. She's shown great improvement in her time here. She never guards her food- only select toys and bones. We're working on it but seeing huge improvement.

I really bond hard (like glue) with the people I love and get super excited when they come home. Know what I do when I get excited?? I sing and talk!! I have all the traits of a faithful forever friend: outgoing, affectionate, and am always excited to see you! I am a pretty smart dude and know how to sit and shake hands and I am working on “high five”. I am also willing to learn new tricks in exchange for some cuddles or treats! I am house trained and am such a good boy that I can be left out while you are gone because I don’t chew or get into anything (except maybe the garbage can – you might have to put that out of my reach). I would love nothing more in this world than to find someone who will take me for walks, play with me and relax with me at the end of the day. I do good with other dogs and like to play with them as long as they don’t get bossy with me. I am a little submissive and sometimes bossy dogs like to pick on me. I really don’t ask for much, just love and affection … which I’ll give right back to you! Come meet me and I will sing you a song.
