Posted Breed: Border Collie / Australian Kelpie / Mixed (medium coat). Please contact DFW Pup Patrol (info@dfwpuppatrol.com) for more information about this pet. Rocky was a dog that was kept outside all the time....he never got to go indoors, take walks, or leave his yard. When he escaped one day and was hit by a car, his family did not have the means to get him to a vet. Another rescue stepped in and paid for his surgery, and then fully vetted him! After all that the family decided to surrender him, and now he is patiently waiting his REAL furever home. He is estimated to be around 4-5 years old, and currently weighs about 50 lbs. He is a shy boy that is finally learning what being part of a family is. He is crate and house trained, is fine with cats, loves other dogs, and is good with children. Rocky will do best in a home where he has at least one other pup to be with. He has been through some basic obedience training, walks well on leash, and is well behaved. He loves to snuggle and be with his humans.

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: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). River is a sweet Lab mix girl that somehow found herself on the euthanasia list of a local kill shelter! How that happened we have no clue because this girl is amazing! She is about 2 years old and weighs about 50 lbs. She has been trained....she can sit and lay down on command and walks great on leash. She LOVES other dogs and will play and play. She is very submissive with assertive dogs and humans. She has been around a cat and did great. She has lots of energy but is content to hang out with her human too. She loves to splash around in water. She never jumps on people and would be a great dog to have around children. River's one caveat is that she hates to be contained. She does not do well in a crate. (We are working on that with her.) She is fine being left out while her person is gone if she has another doggy friend with her and has access to the outside via a doggy door (with a secure, fenced in area of course.) Want to meet her? Keep reading to find out how.

      Breed: Lab-Pointer
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pointer / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Ginger Lou is an adorable Pointer? Lab? Hound? mix who is highly trained. We can’t fathom how this lovable little girl found herself homeless , and I guess we’ll never know. But what we DO know, is that Ginger would do best as a second dog as she LOVES to play in the back yard for hours! She is kind and gentle with little dogs, but really comes to life with medium to larger dogs as she will run and roll around as long as you will let her. Once inside, she is quiet and obedient. As her foster, I would “consider” a home without another dog as long as Ginger Lou has children to play with and a dog park to take her to. She does not need crating. She sleeps quietly at night, and will stay quiet and calm if you are gone for several hours. We would not want to see her left alone all day without another companion dog. She is fantastic with children. She is a ball-catching-frisbee-catching kind of dog. SUPER fun!! Someone taught her NOT to jump up on children or adults, and even if she gets excited and “almost” forgets, she immediately corrects herself without you saying, and sits herself right down. She is also a snuggler. She will sleep and snuggle with an adult or child in their bed all night, or if told, will sleep only in her doggie bed. Our entire family including the grandkids, is in love with her. It will be difficult for us to say goodbye, but part we must, or we cannot help the next rescue in need. Ginger is estimated to be about 2 years old and weighs 52 lbs. You will love every inch of this beautiful girl!

      Breed: Carolina Dog-Unknown Mix

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Carolina Dog / Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat). Please contact Melissa Demoss (melissa.demoss@hotmail.com), 4692331066 for more information about this pet. Our adorable Axel is estimated to have been born around 11/14/17 and currently weighs approximately 23 lbs. Your guess is as good as ours on his breed makeup; possibly a Carolina Dog/Shepherd mix. He has large paws, but we can only estimate that he may get about 50-60 lbs full grown. He was found living alone on the street in a very bad part of the city and his owners could not be located. He is a very sweet and special boy with very sharp puppy teeth. He is crate trained and working on his housetraining that he is doing well on. Since Axel is still a puppy, he will need a home with a family who has the commitment, time, and patience to give him guidance and help him grow into a great dog and family member. He would do well in a house with another dog to show him the ropes. He is learning to walk on a leash and really likes walks. He should be walked daily to help him drain his puppy energy. Axel is not much of a cuddling type pup and prefers a dog bed to a couch and a crate to a human bed. He is still too curious to be uncrated at night or when you are not home.

      Breed: Beagle-Unknown Mix

      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Melissa Demoss (melissa.demoss@hotmail.com), 4692331066 for more information about this pet. Mila is a very sweet special little girl who was found living on the streets full of parasites, fleas, had demodectic mange, and was very underweight and malnourished. No owner could be located, so she came into our rescue at a meek 7.8 lbs. She was estimated to have been born about 11/28/17. She is now healthy and currently weighs approximately 20 lbs; so amazing what food, love and a caring home can do! We can only estimate, but we believe she will be about 40 to 50 lbs full grown. We think Mila may have some Beagle in her which means she is smart and sometimes a little vocally loud. She loves to play and cuddle next to her person. She is doing great with housetraining and has almost mastered the leash. She loves other dogs. She is working on eating slower and will do best with a slow-eating bowl. Since Mila is still quite young, she will need a home with a family who has the time, commitment, and patience to help guide her through her puppy phase so she can be a wonderful family addition. She is a pup that needs daily walks, since walks really help puppies with their energy levels. Mila is in a foster home with teenagers and other dogs and cats. She does great with everyone, but when the cats run, she thinks it’s a game of chase. A quick “no” typically stops her from chasing them.

      Breed: Doberman Pinscher-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Doberman Pinscher / Mixed (short coat). Nettie i s a calm, quiet, sweet, soul. She was homeless and living scared and alone for quite some time. Once rescued, she was spayed, received all her shots, and is now in search of a loving home. Nettie does not chew, bark, or potty in the house. She will not let a stranger approach your door or family without loud, deep, ferocious-sounding barks. Once you tell her it is ok, she will immediately back off. I don’t know where this comes from, but here in her foster home, we actually like that about her. We can always tell it’s someone we DON’T know at the door. She does not need crating. Even when left alone for hours, she will wait patiently until your return. She LOVES a doggie bed, and will sleep in her bed in whatever room you choose. She prefers to be in the room YOU are in, and when YOU move, SHE moves. She is not a “go fetch a ball” kind of companion. She is a loyal dog who loves to go on car rides, and loves to go on walks. She loves the security of a home, and she enjoys playing with other dogs. She is great with small or large dogs, as well as small children (as she doesn’t jump on them). We haven’t had the same answer from several vets in determining her breed, but we suspect there's some Doberman in there and we do know that if you are looking for a quiet, loving dog, she is your girl. She is about 3 years old and around 60 lbs. She’s a gentle soul who appears grateful for your kindness. You will love her.

      Posted Breed: Black Mouth Cur / Mixed (short coat). Hey everyone.....Bacardi here!!! I am estimated to be approximately 3 years old, about 74 lbs, and I am a Black Mouth Cur mix pup. I am the absolute sweetest and most handsome boy around if I do say so myself! I love to play with other dogs, love my people, including little kids, and am very active! I was rescued from a San Antonio kill shelter, and how I ended up there is beyond me. Thanks to DFW Pup Patrol for rescuing me and putting me in my loving foster home. I am goofy and funny, loaded with personality, but I must admit that I could use some basic training and guidance since I didn't receive it as a puppy. I am potty trained with a dog door. I am not a fan of crates at all, not exactly sure why. I am fine in a crate as long as someone is home, but not so much when I am home alone! Walks and jogs would be a perfect activity for me to help release some of the energy I have!!! I will do best in a home where someone is home most of the time and can help teach me not to get into things I shouldn't and help show me that it's ok to be a calm and happy dog without the mischief part. I really, really want to learn!!! Come meet me and I know you’ll fall in love with me. I am looking for that loving committed active family who will help guide me, love me forever, and will help me be the best family dog!

He is the perfect mix of fun energy and laid back. He came into rescue when a good Samaritan spotted him as a stray. He was very shy and took a bit to catch, but once caught he was and is a total sweetheart! He has decided that he's spent enough time outside so he likes to go outside and do his business then come back in, unless you are outside with him. He's ok with other dogs, doesn't play with them but gets along fine with them. He loves his chew bones! He also loves treats, and will spin in circles when you have one for him, earning him the nickname Spin Doggy. Durango is housetrained and crate trained!

A little bit about me - I love to play with all things... dogs, cats (even though they don’t love to play with me), and kids! I'm a perfect medium size - around 55 pounds and I know how to be gentle; I'm a little on the submissive side. Even though I just love to play, I know when it's time to calm down too. I'm house trained AND crate trained! I don't mind staying in a crate when I'm home alone, but I'm well behaved if left out of it too. I do need another pup in the home to keep me company, otherwise I get depressed. So what else is there to think about? Adopt me!

She can be a little shy meeting new people, but warms up quickly. She gets along well with other pups once she gets to know them, but can be a little shy in the beginning.

He loves attention and to cuddle with his person. He is an obedient pup and loves to please, but does need structure and rules in his home. He will do best as an only pup, but does ok with most small well-balanced dogs. He does need a calm introduction to another pup and he can be a bit of a resource guarder.
