Posted Breed: Parson Russell Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Roo is four years old, and is a 50 pound parson russell terrier mix. With snow white wire fur, and the cutest semi-erect ears one will probably ever see, this sweetheart is looking for her happily furever after. Roo was actually brought into the city shelter as a puppy, and was diagnosed with parvo, a very deadly virus soon after. She struggled and finally beat it... ROO IS A PARVO SURVIVOR! A bit of a princess, Roo would do best in a quiet, stable home. She can be dog selective, so she would do best in a single-dog home where she can soak up all of your affection, or in a home with male dogs around her size or larger - she loves to play and run with the big boys! She prefers a home with no small children or cats. She really enjoys the outdoors, and has proven to be an excellent mouser (who needs a cat when you've got Roo on the task?). Roo knows some basic commands, is crate- and house-trained; she is a great girl! While some might say she's picky, we say she's just got high standards! We know the perfect family is out there for her... could it be you? All Dallas Pets Alive adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines upon adoption.

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.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Dachshund / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 200.00. Hi, my name is Russell, but my friends call me Rusty! I'm probably the cutest and longest Dachshund mix you've ever seen! Some people have asked if I was part Lab, because I look a bit like a miniature chocolate Lab – but who knows!? I’m definitely 100% cuteness, that’s for sure! I haven’t been told how old I am, but they think I’m about 5 years old. My favorite things include going for walks, running around in the back yard (aka Zoomies!), and snuggling on the couch. I’m up for playing with tennis balls, too! I currently live with 6 other dogs, of all sizes, and meet new dogs on a daily basis. I don’t really like being alone, so if you leave please let me have a canine companion to hang out with while you’re gone. Who likes being alone anyway?? I LOVE little dogs, but I’m not a fan of those puppies. But if you have another little breed dog, he or she would be my new best friend! If you have children, it would be great if they were a little older. Like my dogs, I prefer my human friends to not be puppies either! Let’s meet, and I’ll look at you with my adorable puppy eyes. I guarantee you’ll want to take me home right away! So go ahead, hit the apply to adopt button – and apply to adopt me, Russell!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 200.00. Meet Molly! This pretty gal is a 4 year old Pittie mix, who was found as a stray and appeared to have had a litter at some point. Once with Dallas Pets Alive, it was discovered that she had heartworm and Breast Cancer. Fortunately she has been treated and has recovered fully in her awesome foster home! This girl is known around her foster home as a "people pleaser". She just loves her humans being around! Molly will basically become your shadow, whether it's sitting on the couch relaxing or having coffee on the porch in the morning. She also LOVES kids! Molly may do best in a home where she’s the only pet. She doesn’t so well with cats, and is selective with dogs and slow to warm up to them. She would probably also do best in a home with a yard, as opposed to an apartment. She enjoys long walks, but mostly enjoys having a patio to relax on. She is still learning what to do with dogs toys, but she enjoys chewing on deer antler treats. Molly is house trained, and crate trained, although she prefers to not be crated. She walks well on leash, but does tend to pull – nothing a harness can’t help with! She’s an intelligent pup who is eager to please, so some TLC and training will work wonders for her! Molly’s new leash on life has already jump-started in her foster home, but she’s very deserving of a wonderful fur-ever home! Do you want to give this survivor her new beginning? Apply to adopt Molly today! All Dallas Pets Alive adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines upon adoption.

He is a snuggler extraordinaire, and his ultimate goal in life is to be your lap dog. Bogart is a 4 year old pittie mix who enjoys slow walks filled with sniffs, long naps, belly rubs, toys and treats. (He REALLY likes treats!) He deserves them for being a smart boy! He knows how to sit, and does really good in his crate when the humans are at work. This love bug gives lots of kisses and happy twisty tail thumps every time he sees his people or meets someone new. What can we say, he’s a people person (or dog)! Bogart had a rough past, but is very intelligent and is learning lots of new things now that he is in a safe, loving environment. He isn't sure about other pets in the home just yet, but he’s working on his socializing skills. Want to give this guy the loving home he deserves? Apply to adopt Bogart today!

She's a mutt, possibly part chihuhua, weighing in at 18lbs. And, for being an older dog, she has a young energy and spirit! Peach walks well on a leash and is house trained and crate trained, and has even learned how to use the doggy door! She even likes to spend time and relax in her crate even if she doesn't have to. She enjoys her alone time in there to play with her favorite toys - the louder the toy, the better! She might not be the best at fetch, but she sure loves her squeaks! More than anything, Peach wants to just be near her humans, and lights up when they are close. She will even climb up into your lap for pets, before going back to her squeaker toys! Peach gets along with other dogs, including big dogs (so long as they are on the calmer side like she is). Since she is blind, rambunctious dogs tend to startle her. She is great with kids though, even babies and toddlers! This precious girl lost her eyesight at a young age, but she's got so much love to give! Her new family will love her affectionate but silly nature, and she will love being a part of a family. So it's a win-win for everyone! Want to give this loving gal the furever family she deserves?

Elsie gets along great with her two foster dog brothers, and two foster cat sisters! She is also housebroken and crate trained.

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 200.00. Introducing Paloma! This gorgeous velveteen beauty is a young Staffordshire/Lab mix, with a sweet temperament, complimentary of both breeds! Paloma is a lovable big fur ball with the cutest heart shaped head! Her foster family reports she gets along well with the other dogs in the house, is learning her leash walking, basic commands, and how to hang in her kennel patiently. She enjoys occasional play time with her fur siblings, but mostly likes to lounge. She's often pretty lazy and LOVES snuggles and attention. Paloma is sometimes fondly referred to as, "couch potato" due to her laid back demeanor. What makes this low level activity even better for her, is if she is able to touch or snuggle with her owner! She very much enjoys human interaction, kisses, hugs, and affection. Playtime can consist of her romping with other dogs, or just chewing on her Nylabones. Now that she is heartworm-free, she's becoming more active and LOVES to go for walks and gets really excited for them. Be prepared to have her greet you when you come home from work with jiggles, tail wagging and a flurry of excitement! This girl loves to love! Expect to get back what you put into her, 200%! She could easily be an only dog of a household, or fit in with other dogs. Her foster notes, however, that she is not a fan of cats. Paloma is ready to find her new home and reap the rewards of TLC, warmth and care. She will no doubt cherish whoever is ready to open their home and heart to her. Apply to adopt Paloma today!

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Adoption Fee: 200.00. Hi there! My Name is Rusty because of my beautiful rust red coat and gorgeous hazel eyes. I LOVE humans of all shapes and sizes, and my favorite thing is to put my head in your lap or lay next to you on the couch. I help my foster mom clean, work in the backyard, and make dinner. I love interacting with my human friends… and I even like ear scratches from the mailman! I also love tug-o-war and squeaky toys. I’m crate trained, potty trained, and my foster mom has taught me to sleep on my dog bed. She’s also teaching me to heel, sit, stay, and wait for her commands before doing my favorite things. I learned shake in one week and my foster mom is convinced I can learn anything! I love playing with other dogs, but I’m also good at leaving my older foster brother alone. My ideal family would be someone who likes some type of daily activity- either dog park, daily walks, or another dog that also likes to play! On days I don’t get as much activity, I’m still not hyper in the house as long as I have my toys to keep me busy. I greet my foster mom with the cutest happy howl when she gets home. If you’d like to make my happy howl your own and want a lovable, snuggable, playful dog - that’s me!
