Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). You can meet Madison Saturday at Petco from 1-5 located at 4001 W. Green Oaks Blvd in Arlington Texas (contact us prior to Saturdays to confirm) Hi, I'm MADISON (but you can call me Maddie or Sunny, as long as you also call me YOURS). I'm an American Staffordshire Terrier / Pyrenean Shepherd mix (and I have the DNA test to prove it), which means my love of playing 'fetch' was literally bred into me. I love to run and jump up into the air to catch a ball, and most of the time, I'm happy to give it back to you to throw again. My foster-family says I'd be awesome at flyball. Well, I jump so high it's like flying, and it's a word that has 'ball' in it, so they're probably right. When I'm not playing fetch, I love to cuddle on the couch while you're watching TV or reading. Give me a bone to gnaw (I'm fond of those rawhide 'retriever rolls' even though I'm not a retriever), and I'll lie at your feet with it 'til it's gone. AmStaff's are often used as watchdogs, which is great for me because I love to watch things. Specifically, I like to watch squirrels, and consider it my special task to prevent the Squirrel Invasion. Those floofy-tailed monsters won't come near you when I'm on alert. Despite my constant vigilance, I don't really bark a lot, though, so you don't have to worry about me annoying the neighbors. At almost three years old and about 60 pounds, I'm still incredibly active and playful, but I’ve long since grown out of all those annoying puppy habits people often worry about. I'm crate trained, but I also have excellent house manners. I'm very clean, I'm already spayed, I've got a microchip (which my foster-mom insists is a tracking device and NOT a kind of food) and I'm up-to-date on all my shots. I'd prefer to be your only dog – let's face it: this much awesome should NOT have to compete for your attention – but if you have a male dog already, I'll probably get along fine with him. I'm kind of a diva though, so no other female dogs, please, and I'm not a fan of cats (What? You're not supposed to chase them??) either. KIDS on the other hand make me happy…I look forward to teaching them how to play fetch. I'm told that my breeds are known for being owner-oriented, incredibly loyal, and kind of stoic (I think that means calm). If you've seen me at adoptions, you probably know I don't 'show' well when I'm crated. I promise, I'm a completely different dog if you take me OUT of my crate, so please don't be shy. I've been with my foster-family for over a year, and I love them, and they love me, but I'd really love it even more if I had a forever family of my VERY OWN. Her adoption includes all vaccinations,worming, rabies vaccination, spay, heartworm neg,microchip including registration with a 2wk health guarantee. Contact her foster family if you have any questions about Maddie: Phone: 214-543-5889 Email: missmelysse@gmail.com If you are interested please complete our online application at www.shelter2rescue.petfinder.com

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: Beagle / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Come and meet her this weekend SAT 7 OCT 1130-3 PETCO 4001 W GREEN OAKS BLVD ARLINGTON TX Vanna is a 1 year old mixed breed rescued from Cleburne animal shelter. Best guesses: Shiba Inu/beagle/maybe collie/maybe lab. She's a medium size. About 30 lbs. Medium energy. She is social and enjoys being around the other dogs, big and small, in her foster home. She is confident, affectionate with people and other dogs, super smart, and walks well on a leash. Vanna has been "on loan" (aka extended stay) in her foster home to help the foster mom's own dog recover from the sudden loss of the other keeper/permanent dog. She has been a therapy dog for that grieving dog (and foster mom). Also, she has welcomed numerous other dogs into her foster home during that time. Her special gift is helping dogs recover, relax, and play. She will only be adopted into a home with at least 1 other dog. She is crate trained, housebroken in her foster home, loves to be next to her person, and is, in general, a great house guest, so we believe she'll be a great family addition. She's spayed, vaccinated, wormed, heartworm negative, and microchipped. If you would like to meet Vanna and adopt, please fill our online application out found here www.shelter2rescue.org click on the adoptable tab. Thank you You can contact her foster mom at LyndaDFW@gmail.com

He gets along well with all dogs he has encountered so far, large and small alike. He loves to play, bounce all over the house with a joyous attitude that is heartwarming. At his foster dad's home, he loves to explore the outdoor space during the day and enjoy his people time in the evening. He is great with men, women, and kids who are not overly excited. He enjoys the occasional morning runs (3 miles!) but could use regular playtime instead. He is housebroken at his foster dad's place and when he visits guest, you have to show him where the powder room for him is until he gets the hang of it.
