Meet Burton...what a handsome little guy! Burton is a Chihuahua mix who is a little over two years old. Burton believes this is the PERFECT time to adopt him and bring him into your loving, forever home. Burton is quite impressive...he uses a doggie! He loves to play fetch...awesome! He walks well on a leash...fantastic! And, he is used to being around other dogs (his foster siblings)...perfect! With some love, attention, and basic obedience commands, you've got a recipe for success with this little ball of love! He's ready to meet you TODAY!

Burton isn't so fond of sudden movements, and occasionally likes to sneak food from the table - but what dog doesn't like to, am I right? (Note: he's working on his manners!) POSITIVES: During the day, Burton hangs out with his homies (Maltese foster siblings) in the kitchen and uses the doggie door to go outside and do his business. He's GREAT with KIDS of ALL ages...and other animals. He's friendly, easy-going and ready to settle down with his new family!

Burton knows how to SIT, and STAY and USE THE DOGGIE DOOR! Yowza...we're impressed already! Burton can be described as affectionate, silly (who doesn't love a silly dog?), good-natured (of course!), and sweet and submissive. Sounds like this little dude is the whole package! If you're looking to add an awesome little family member to your existing nest, please consider Burton. He's a snuggle bug, plays well with his three-year old human companion, and LOVES playing in the backyard. Fetch is his favorite game to play.

*For Burton's new parents: he has been eating Natural Balance dog food twice a day. If you decide to switch foods, it's always best to feed a high quality dog food. Just mix in a little of the new food with his existing food until he gets used to it - won't take long! And, we don't want to upset his little tummy.

This sweet baby deserves a second and third look. We're confident he will make a loving addition to your home and bring you years of happiness, smiles, and beautiful memories.

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.

Why we do it

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.
