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.

      Posted Breed: Bluetick Coonhound / Mixed (short coat). We are looking for help to re home Nellie. My elder parents now live with us and medical needs in the home limit what we can do. Nellie is a blue tick hound we think about two years old super playful. Friendly with other dogs and currently lives with a male boxer. House trained loves to run, she has all current shots, neutered and chipped. The only issue we saw was she does not share food, we always feed the dogs apart. Loves kids, we currently have a 5 year old that loves her and plays with her. Loves sleeping at the foot of your bed each. Does not like the rain at all. If you are interested in Nellie, Jennifer can be reached at 214.728.0288 . Jennjohnson1@att.net

      Posted Breed: Golden Retriever / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Kim has found this dog and has been trying to find her family for two months now. They have not named her but do refer to her as Puppy. See below what Kim has to say about Puppy. We have tried to give her a family environment by giving her a space to bed down in, a crate, access to the back yard, and the ability to burn off energy with our other dog. She loves to play fetch and does it well. She's good with other large dogs and loves to play. She walks well and does not pull when walking on leash. It is apparent that she has had some kind of training as she can sit and does offer her paw. She loves to go for a ride in the car and we did take her to the dog park with our other dogs to play. She's very friendly at the dog park with other dogs as well as other people. At night, she likes to roll around on you if you sit on the floor and love to get her belly rubbed before bedding down. She is good alone but dues cry a short time before settling down. She is very secure in being out in the yard alone or with other dogs. She is potty trained but will go on a pee pad if given one. A few negative things we noticed is she is not good with small animals, dogs or cats. We notice she wants to chase them. Right now she tends to jump up a lot but she has been trained and probably needs to brush up on those commands and not allowed to be so excited. We did catch her once out of all this time digging in the garden. She has not been around small children so we have no idea if she's kid friendly. We know nothing about her health except her teeth are spotless and appear to have been brushed regularly. We do not know if she has been spayed or if she up to date on her shots. She has no chip. She would do best in a home with a yard and fence. A tired dog is a good dog. I have exercised her or allowed her out to play with the other dog before bed time so she will sleep after winding down. This little girl will be a great loving family member as an only dog or as a second dog. We have medical info on her. Please text Kim at 469-600-2086.

      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!
