My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Willow is a 4.5 year old Catahoula Mix. Her birthday is approximately May 23, 2018. She is the sweetest, most loving dog to humans. She's empathetic and caring; She'll lick the tears off of your face when you're sad. She adores children and considers it her mission to keep them safe and happy.

Tug-of-war is her favorite game in the world, although fetch is a close second. Her favorite toys are carrot shaped because she chewed on carrots as a puppy and grew an attachment (don't worry, some starter carrot toys will come with her).

Willow has canine mega-esophagus, which means she needs either wet food or soaked kibble that she eats in her doggy high chair that she'll back herself up into at dinner time because she knows that's how she gets her food. She's reactive so when she gets over-stimulated, she gets aggressive with other animals(mainly other dogs) so she needs a home where it can be just her and her humans, with no other animals on the ground with her that she can reach.

She's incredibly smart and learns tricks quickly. She knows all of the standards like sit, lay down, stay, heel, gentle, etc. She'll adorably paw at you when she wants pets. She's the perfect companion for the right furever home.

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.

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

More about this rescue

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.
