Posted Breed: Papillon / Mixed. Dixie is full of energy and needs to have a family who loves to spend time with her. She does not really do well with competition! So it would be best if there are no other pets unless they are laid back and will let her be dominant. Dixie is very loving and very protective so her human needs to be sure Dixie understands the rules set for her when a visitor comes over. Dixie is a mix - but I have no idea with what! Her intelligence is definitely Papillon as she is one of the smartest dogs we have had. She learns quickly and want to please. She returns love with great affection and seems so grateful for the love and attention she gets in return. Dixi is crate trained, walks well on a leash although she wants to walk faster than I can keep up! Daily exercise would be wonderful for her. Dixie is pretty good at house training and prefers to go outside - we have not taught her a signal to "go out" but I am sure she will learn one quickly. We love Dixie very much - and admire her strength. We know she needs to have her very own family and be the light in someones life.

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: Papillon. Asia is a cheerful happy little girl. She always has a smile on her face! She really likes people and would be fine with well behaved older children. Asia is happiest when she is curled up next to you - in fact - right on your pillow. She is well behaved and wants to follow all the rules - she just need to know what they are. Like all Paps, Asia wants to be the light of your life - getting a lot of love and attention. Asia has one leg that was injured years ago, so she limps sometimes. We have had her completely checked out and we are trying an exercise plan to restore the leg muscle. She doesn't seem to care! But we would like to help her get a bit stronger. Walks and swimming would be so good for her! Come to meet Asia and see what a great companion she would be.

      Posted Breed: Papillon. Beau is the sweetest boy! He loves to cuddle and stay near his human. He is eager to please and learns commands quickly. He will need some review on house training and leash walking - but his biggest need ids to have a person to really pay attention to him. Beau is white with a very pale tan beautiful coat. He is healthy and just had a dental.

      Posted Breed: Papillon. Bailey is so beautiful we keep calling him a girl! But he definitely thinks he is king of the household! He would be happiest if he was the center of attention and was pampered totally. He carefully guards his toys and gathers up everybody elses' too. Bailey would be a wonderful older person's lap dog that would be their baby to be brushed and pampered forever. Bailey has a certified allergy to vaccines and must never have another vacination. Of course, by this time in his life he will never need another one.

      Posted Breed: Papillon. Wyzer was a grumpy little old man with creaky joints, bladder stones, and a sore mouth....and then he came to Pap 911 Rescue. No more stones, a complete dental and now he exercises, takes a little pain med for arthritis and has warm baths and massages. He is a NEW MAN! Wyzer is loved right where he is, but it would be great if he could be the star in someone's eye! He deserves all the love and happiness he can get for the rest of his life. Are you right for Wyzer?

      Posted Breed: Papillon. Maddy is such a quiet little girl. She loves to be next to her person, basking in the sun or napping while you're reading a good book. We think she would be a great companion for a retired lady or couple - someone who would tell her she is loved all the time. Maddy wants to go outside when necessary - she just needs a little help with someone to open the door! Maddy has had some minor seizures so we are treating her with an inexpensive medicine that seems to be controlling them well. It is necessary to be sure she gets her pill 3 times a day. Maddy is hoping to spend her life with someone who sees how beautiful she is. Please come to Marietta GA to meet her.

      rescue
      Breed: Papillon
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Papillon (long coat). Renny is a brave little boy who lost a leg when he was hit by a car. Nobody came to help him and he was taken in to a shelter. A nice lady took him home and had a lot of vetting done, hoping he could become a part of her family. But her other dogs were bigger and just would not accept him into their pack. After a particularly nasty fight, Renny was taken to the vet's to board until help could be found. We got an urgent plea for help at midnight on Sunday night and in another one of Pap 911's rescue efforts, Renny was safe in the Pap 911 family. Renny is a real character! He will bark and growl at other dogs hind feet and when they get tired and turn around and snap or growl at him, he turns around and runs screaming like a banshee; like someone is killing him! As small as he is, the bigger dogs easily get the best of him. For this reason, he needs to be in a one dog family or a home that has a placid laidback female. Renny loves people and does not mind children, but because he is so fragile, he really is not a good companion for most children. He would love to be the constant friend of an older person who likes walks and cuddling. He loves to first walk all over you or play with you in bed, then curl up beside you and sleep. He looks so innocent then; how could you resist that sweet face! Renny always has a bad hair day - his hair is so thick and curly along with the scars under his coat from the car accident and then the dog fights. But it is really beautiful and very full. His tail although short on bone has beautiful 11-12" hair and when he wags it, it goes "tick-tock, tick-tock". Although he naturally has developed some arthritis, he has so much joy and energy! If you are looking for a sweetie to be a one and only and play with and love, then Renny is for you. He is full of energy and loves to get into things, but he will give you many hours of enjoyment and love - he just needs someone of his own, a fenced yard where he is safe and a home where he is loved. Won't you consider Renny to make your home and his life complete?

      rescue
      Breed: Papillon-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Papillon / Terrier / Mixed. Ba'cho means "little Wolf" named for his light brown eyes. They make him look wild and fierce and that is exactly what he appears to be. He has a furious bark - enough to scare away any intruder. Ba'cho was picked up running up and down the highway in north GA. A very caring woman finally was able to catch him by throwing a towel over him. Although she tried everything to find his owner, no one came forward. A friend recommended rescue and a representative of Pap 911 went and brought him home to the Dog House. Ba'cho probably needs to be the 'only child' of a pretty dog savy family. He is definitely dominant and will not tolerate another dog challenging him. He obviously never learned how to play in a litter. He plays too rough and then the other dog moves away or becomes defensive. I think there is some terrier in his background, because a shrill scream or shreik will cause him to attack. On the other hand, there are many dogs at the Dog House that he plays well with. These would be pretty balanced dogs that don't 'take the bait' of his roughness. People are another matter. He will go into full alert if he feels someone might be a threat. But if the guest is still or ignores him, he jumps on their lap and turns on his back to have his tummy rubbed. Ba'cho is the sweetest cuddler laying his head into your chest like a baby. He loves to sleep beside you. He learns very quickly and is very smart. Because of his unacceptable behavior with some other dogs and our discomfort that it may carry over to humans someday, Ba'cho has spent training time at US Canine for special training for control. This is a specialty training facility that work deeply with dogs to help them become balanced members of a family. His adopter will be welcome to have 'booster ' training there as needed. You can see how unique we feel Ba'cho is. We all love him so much that I have been ready to keep him here at the Dog House forever. I know we can handle him . But after a lot of deep thought and consideration, we know that Ba'cho deserves a home of his own where he is the light of someone's life. He will make you laugh, and probably make you cry. But he will give you such adoration that it makes the extra work worth while. The more exersice he has, the better he behaves. Ba'cho must have a well fenced yard. Because of his quick "fuse" he should not be in a home with children. He is leash trained, crate trained and gives some effort to be house trained. You just have to remember to take him out! We plan to be VERY careful about who gets to add Ba'cho to their family. Visits will need to be made, so the applicant must be within traveling distance of Marietta GA.
