Hi! I'm Chaplin, and I two years old. I am a Rhodesian Ridgeback mix. My mom thinks I have some Mastiff in me because I am super chill. I get along great with my large dog pack just fine, but I would much rather be the only dog. I don’t like cats or small dogs.

My mom describes me as affectionate, good natured, very smart, charming, silly, clumsy, cuddly, sweet, loyal & playful. I like my bones a lot. I don’t play fetch well or with any toys really. I cannot go to the park because of my issue with small dogs. I love playing with large dogs and running in the yard (mostly just running in the yard). I am great on walks, but if there is too much going on then I get nervous. I am crate trained. I have never had an accident inside. I know sit, lay down, and how to go to my crate. I am incredibly intelligent (Mom says “too smart for my own good”, whatever that means!) If there are yummy treats in the drawers, I will figure out how to open them, so you have to keep an eye on that.

What I really need is a furever home. I love my parents, but I don’t get as much attention as I deserve. My favorite time is when it is just me and my mom. If you want a chill gentle giant then I’m the pup for you. I will love on you every day I can. If I want you to love me more, then I will paw at you. I am really good at protecting my mom. I keep a careful watch on the window to make sure no one hurts her.

If you feel your home might be the right place for this wonderful dog, the place to start is with the adoption application found at  Once submitted, the foster will contact you to tell you more, and to arrange a meeting! The adoption fee for all of our dogs is $250.00, which includes their vaccinations and spay/neuter.

Chaplin is participating in the DFW Rescue Me Guest Dog Program, so custody and ongoing care are provided by the foster, not by DFWRM.

About DFW Rescue Me

About Our Rescue Group...

Our goal is to save dogs at the local shelters in the Dallas \ Fort Worth Metroplex from euthanasia and adopt them to the public. We spay / neuter these dogs as well as provide all necessary medical care. We also educate the public about responsible pet ownership. We love dogs and our goal is to reduce / eliminate euthanisias being done in this area by shelters due to overcrowding.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Dogs can be met at our adoptions events, at their foster homes, or the boarding facility where they are staying. They can also be met during the home visit.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fee for dogs is $250. We required an adoption application and check both vet references and pet deposits / breed restrictions if they apply. We also do a home check prior to all adoptions.
