 Meet zzStaley, a Min Pin/Terrier mix, about 4 years old, neutered, short/docked tail, 30 lbs. In good health, current on heart worm prevention and vaccinations.

zzStaley's original owner left Staley and his sister crated, alone, in an apt for 12-18 hours a day. Neighbors complained about them crying so the owner surrendered them both.  The current foster responded to a Facebook plea and has had zzStaley since January.

zzStaley is vey smart. He knows sit and lay. A routine suits him best. He prefers to have his own plastic bowl (metal bowls frighten him) and his own eating area. He is very loving to the person he bonds. And is protective of everyone. When someone cries or yells he tries to figure out the aggressor and will bark/nip until the situation calms down. He is a protector. He is not aggressive with other animals or with people in general. zzStaley needs a calm loving home preferable without small children and maybe as an only dog. He is doggie door trained to potty outside. He would make a fantastic companion for a single woman or a couple without children or an older retired couple.

 Disclaimer: This dog is a participant in the Paws in the City Guest Dog Program, so ongoing care and custody are provided by the foster, not by Paws in the City.  A $200 adoption fee is due at the time of adoption and will go to the foster.   To meet this dog, please fill out an adoption application at the Paws in the City website

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.
