Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). ** COURTESY POST ** ** This animal is NOT at the Rowlett Animal Shelter, so please do not inquire with them ** ** For information contact Crysti at 214-384-4969 ** Geshia is a 2.5 year old lab/shepherd mix. She has the coloring of a shepherd. She's small, about 45lbs. She has a carefree spirit. Geshia doesn't care much for smaller dogs. She has always ate fast, then burps...and loud!!! She's fixed and microchip. She's due for her rabies shot but has recently received her 9-1 and kennel cough vaccines. Her birthday is around 4/13. She was adopted from the Rowlett pound around 6-8 weeks old. Geshia is house trained and crate trained.

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: Senior
      Location: Rowlett, TX
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Sparky is 10 years old and sweet but we don't know yet how he gets along with other dogs. He's partially blind and if he doesn't find a home, the shelter would suggest we look for a senior dog rescue. Sparky is heart worm positive however; Friends of Rowlett Animals will sponsor his treatment.

    • Doberman Pinscher-Unknown Mix Dog For Adoption in Rowlett, TX

      Molly

      rescue
      Breed: Doberman Pinscher-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Rowlett, TX
      Posted Breed: Doberman Pinscher / Mixed (short coat). Molly was rescued from a Home Depot parking lot in July 2016. She is a mixed breed that resembles a Doberman more than any other. She is very smart, loves to play, loves toys and plays fetch. She is crate trained and walks well on leash. She is about 15 months old, weighs about 52 lbs, spayed, microchipped, on heart worm preventative and current on all shots. She is also registered with the City of Rowlett. We have another rescue, foxhound dog about 80 lbs, male, about 5 yrs old, who she gets along with. We have a female sharpei, about 6 yrs old, who she does not get along with. We have tried several ways, but Molly is just not wanting the Sharpei around and will herd her away from us. As a result, the Sharpei will not come near us when Molly is in the same room. Molly has bit the Sharpei trying to keep her away, so we have come to the conclusion that Molly would do better in another home. Molly has had other 4 legged friends visit, male dogs that are larger than her and she does fine and plays until she drops. I do not believe she likes cats. I have a 10 yr old granddaughter and she loves her, but not sure about younger children. She goes on daily walks, on leash, with the foxhound and loves her walks. She also loves to just sit on the couch with you and be near you. Please contact Linda at 214-673-7023 if you are interested in Molly.

      Picard

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Rowlett, TX
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Picard is very smart, learns commands within minutes of being taught, and can warm anyone’s heart with his cuddling. Picard loves to be around his people, seeking affection from anyone he meets. He has a very soft and gentle mouth when taking treats, and he is gentle around children as well. While he likes his two-legged campanions, he does not enjoy the four-legged feline variety. Picard does well in social situations with other dogs but he wants his family to only be doting on him, and so he seeks to find a home where he will be the king of his castle. Picard loves to play fetch in the pool, as seen in his short film “I Like to Swim and Play!” on YouTube at https://youtu.be/RpRilFC91FI. Picard also enjoys car rides, going to Sonic for an ice cream, or just about anywhere his humans are going and he can go! Picard recently enjoyed walking around Rockwall’s Rib, Rub, Run festival, and then going to see his friends at the Bayside Regatta. And if you hadn’t noticed yes his name is famous, and he has a name tag to match, “CAPT Picard”. Along with his name, he has his Captain’s Log on his Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/PicardNeedsaHome/ ) that reflect his personality! Picard is so looking forward to his forever home so he can start his heartworm treatment, sponsored by Friends of Rowlett Animals. Picard has allergies to grains, so he is on a grain free diet (currently eating Taste of the Wild – Salmon). If you are interested in meeting Picard, please email info@friendsofrowlettanimals.org and we will set up a meet and greet with Picard and your family!
