Buddy has been through a lot since he was rescued at White Rock Lake by a nice couple .  They tried to find someone to take him without much luck and ended up at their Mom's house in Dallas.   He was doing fine although not getting enough attention .  Unfortunately the next door neighbors are backyard breeding- and one of them attacked Buddy through the fence and he almost lost his foot.      He was recovering in the couple's bedroom but they knew they needed a better place for him... that's when we stepped in.  No other rescues in Dallas responded to their pleas.    We are all so full...but sometimes you just have to make room.    He is at the rescue now.  He is over his shyness, might be a little slow to trust , but once he knows you he is a doll...he loves to play tug a war with a rope toy, plays with a football,  loves to walk on a leash and  go in our woods to play.   

He is a great dog, and will be a terrific protector  of his home and family.  He likes to protect his food but was said to be living with a Yorkie.   Just separate feed bowls  and supervision will control the situation.   He would do well with some obedience training, but he is a big puppy at about one year old with lots of energy and gives sweet kisses,too.  

If you think Buddy might fit well into your household, please go to:

'Buddy is a participant in the Paws in the City Guest Dog Program, so his ongoing care and custody are provided by his foster, not by Paws in the City.'

About Paws In The City

About Our Rescue Group...

Paws In The City® is committed to supporting the City of Dallas Animal Shelter by hosting off-site adoptions for the dogs and spay/neuter education and fundraising through specific outreach programs.

Paws In The City is a nonprofit, 501 (c) 3 organization committed to ending overpopulation, abuse and neglect of Dallas dogs and cats . We are an all volunteer organization with no paid staff.

Paws In The City is committed to the following goals:

 Rescuing homeless dogs and cats from the City of Dallas animal shelters by sponsoring off-site adoptions to find these abandoned animals terrific, loving homes…often many of these wonderful pets are days away from being euthanized simply because there are not enough homes... a tragedy we are determined to end;

 Providing a comforting and positive environment for adoptions;

 Providing medical care to neglected, abused, and injured animals through our outreach efforts;

 Educating the public on responsible pet ownership; and

 Supporting spay and neuter programs…the simple, common sense solution to ending the number of unwanted dogs and cats on our streets and in our city shelters.

Our Adoption Process...

Requirements to Adopt a Dog in Foster Care: Before adopting, we require an approved pre-adoption application, an interview, a home check, a signed adoption contract and an adoption fee (dogs=$200 / puppies=$250 / cats=$125) to cover the animal’s health-related expenses and boarding while in our care. All of our animals are spayed or neutered, are current on shots, tested and de-wormed.
