Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Trip was playing possum on the side of the road and it worked, because a local animal rescuer stopped to check on him. He wasn’t injured, but was very eager to have human companionship and jumped right in her car to take a ride to the shelter where a DARS foster retrieved him and took him into foster care. Trip knows simple commands - sit, down, kennel, and shake. He is very intuitive and is the most compassionate dog his foster parents have ever seen. When another dog in the home isn’t feeling well or leaves the house for a trip to the vet, Trip is concerned and usually lays by the crate until his friend starts to feel better or returns home from the vet visit. He loves his humans just as much and tries to console them when they’ve had a rough day or if they are just tired. Trip is one of the sweetest, most loving dogs we’ve ever seen. He is also a great playmate. Trip will play well with a 155 pound English Mastiff and Rat Terrier that only weigh 15 -20 pounds, always careful not to step on anyone…….he’s very agile. Trip has been in our foster care for about 2 years. Trip has been neutered, he's on heartworm preventative, is housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with all size dogs. He isn’t good with cats, birds flying over the backyard, or squirrels. If you'd like more information, please call 662-342-9448, email info@desotoanimalrescue.org or submit a pre-adoption application here: http://desotoanimalrescue.org/dog-adoption-application.html and someone will contact you as soon as possible. Our adoption fee for dogs and puppies is $125.

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: Rat Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat). I'm a Snuggle Bug! This little girl is a snuggle bug in search of a lap to live in! Must be allowed on furniture and to sleep with her human. Tootsie is about 3 yrs old and thought to be a rat terrier mix. Tootsie is well behaved and loves affection. She's what is called a velcro dog since she wants to be with her human as much as possible and will follow you from room to room. Her favorite activity is snuggling under the covers next to her human and periodically going for a walk. She does love children and would need a yard to play keep away with them. Tootsie gets along well with most animals, though she can be territorial with resources (treats, toys, human attention) so she'd be best as an only dog or with a non-dominant one. Or, at the very least she needs a human aware of territorial and dominant behavior if she is to be with other dogs, especially larger ones. She is used to living with cats and unless they have something she might want, she pretty much ignores them. She doesn't bark indiscriminately, but is a great alarm system who would not be popular in an attached home (apartment, condo, etc). Tootsie is housebroken, leash trained and heartworm negative. She is microchipped and up to date on her vaccinations. If you have questions, please call 662-342-9448 or email us at info@desotoanimalrescue.org. You can also submit a no-obligation application here: http://desotoanimalrescue.org/dog-adoption-application.html to see if she might be a good fit for your family and/or set up a meet and greet.

      rescue
      Breed: Golden Shepherd
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Golden Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Farley was a little too much for the small apartment he was often left alone in, especially at his age. Gratefully, DARS had an opening so he didn't have to go to a horrible shelter. Farley is thriving in his foster home with lots of yard to run in and foster siblings to play and romp with. That's exactly the type of home this young, sweet dog needs. He would also do well with some sturdy kids to play with, tho he doesn't know his own strength and size sometimes, like a lot of young dogs. Farley is housebroken and trying to learn to walk on a leash, tho this is an ongoing need. Born June 2016, he loves to play and is eager to go on adventures with his humans. He gets along well with other dogs. He's well behaved in the home, but needs rules and boundaries like all young dogs. He would do great with someone who'll put the time into training him. Farley is up to date on his vaccinations and has now been neutered. He is heartworm negative and on preventative. If you would like more information about this sweet, playful boy, please call 662-342-9448; email: info@desotoanimalrescue.org or submit a no obligation pre-adoption application here: http://desotoanimalrescue.org/dog-adoption-application.html
