Hi, I'm Muffin! 30lbs of Schnauzer and Ponder Jack Russell Terrier fun! I am looking for a somewhat particular home. Are you looking for a dog that wants to chill out with you at home or play some fetch in the backyard? Let me tell you more about myself: My favorite thing is to love on you and I'm a bit of a flirt and a lovebug. I am a "superstar" in the house, just perfect! I am crate and house trained and have yet to meet a toy I don't like. I especially love calf hooves. They will entertain me for a whole week! And fetch is my game! I know " go potty" and "night night", and will hop right up onto the bed. I know commands, like "sit", "down" and "wait". I love to rough house with my human and dog friends. I can jump like an Olympian, but I don't get on counters or try to get out of enclosures, I'm just trying to see what's going on. I have lots of energy and love to play if you are up for it, and I'd enjoy learning some tricks. But I can also hang out while you watch TV or do work on the computer. I have lived with other dogs at different foster homes and we always become best friends. I do best with dogs my size or bigger. I would be just as happy as an only dog too. However, I don't like cats (I have a terrier prey drive). I love to play with kids though. Kids are lots of fun! So back to why I need a particular home, I used to be stressed on walks and overreacted when seeing dogs I've never met, but I've been to a great trainer and he has worked with me for a few months and now I can walk great. I will still need strong leadership in the home and someone who can keep me mentally and physically active. I would love to go to the lake or go hiking, I love to ride in the car but I will never be able to go to a doggie park, it's just too much for me. But, I am very, very loving and very, very loyal. If you have kids that love to play with me in the backyard for exercise (especially fetch!) I will be their best friend. As far as meeting new dogs, I need a slow introduction and then I will be just fine once I get to know the other dog. A home with a yard is best rather than an apartment where I would need to go on walks to burn some of my energy. If you decide to adopt me, our wonderful trainer will teach you the best way to introduce me to a new dog or your current dog. My trainer also said he is available for any fresh up training and advise FOEVER! I am a happy bundle of joy since Paws in the City rescued me. (The shelter was getting too full and the people there said "front door or back door"---I got out the front door thanks to rescue!) I am spayed, have had all of my shots and am ready for a home to love me as much as I promise I will love you! For more info call or text 214-263-2100.

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.
