Story
Meet Zeke! Zeke is a sweet and funny 18 month old 10-pound terrier mix. He has a curly black and white coat that will be gorgeous when it grows out. He gets along with dogs, cats, and children. For a terrier, he is very quiet (except when he sees a squirrel!), sleeps all night in his kennel, and goes outside to potty. He likes to cuddle but also likes alone time. He sits for treats and responds to correction. Zeke will be a wonderful pet for a family or single owner. We are working on leash-training, but fortunately, he always comes when called. Interested in meeting Zeke? Please fill out an application! Application available at https://www.pawsofloverescue.com/adoption-application. Adoption donation of $295 includes spay, microchip, deworming, dhpp vaccinations, rabies shot, bordetella nose spray and any other necessary procedures prior to adoption. Dallas/Ft. Worth Area Applications can be found online at www.pawsofloverescue.com, under the adopt tab.  We require an approved application before a meet and greet is set up.  May 13, 2024, 6:15 pm

Story
All Dallas Dog adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, micochipped, and up to date on vaccines upon finalizing adoption. Puppies adopted under the age of five months require a spay/neuter contract, and all dogs are required to be spayed by six months unless otherwise medically noted. Our dogs are currently on heartworm preventative. Puppies receive 3 to 4 rounds of vaccinations depending on their age, and adults receive two rounds unless they've been with us longer than a year, in which case they receive the booster update. You can complete an application or view all the adoptable pets on our website at www.dallasdog.org/adopt. Upon receiving your application, please allow us 2-3 business days to review and process.

Story
Hi… I’m Toby Keith, I am a 6 or 7 year old Shih Tzu. Sadly my family didn’t care enough about me to keep me safe and I found myself at an animal shelter. No-one came to take me home. Apparently that’s not unusual but I’m a special boy – You wouldn’t know it but I’m completely blind and the Vet told my foster mom that I had been blind for a long time. My foster mom said I didn’t act blind and my eyes look perfectly normal but I can't see. I love it when she lets me cuddle beside her and sometimes she lets me sleep with her. I am looking for a home with a family who will love me forever even though I am blind. Its OK if my new home has another dog as long as its a similar size as me.. I like cats and older kids as long as they know how to treat animals. I can completely navigate around my foster home, including going to the back door but I do need some work with house-training so I will need someone to be home often with me. Apart from not being able to see I am in good health and will make you a loving companion for many years. If you think you would like to be this sweet boy’s new home, go to our website and complete an adoption application. His foster mom will contact you as soon as possible. We are asking that applicants live within 15 miles of zip code 75035 (Frisco). Toby is a ShihTzu so he doesn't shed but will need brushing and periodic professional grooming

Story
Tilly is a sweet and social dog who is making great strides with proper management and understanding. She requires a patient and compassionate foster who is willing to continue working alongside her to help her reach her full potential. If you're looking for a furry companion with a unique charm, Tilly might be the perfect match for you!Reason For Foster: Behavior - Foster to AdoptFoster Care Plan: Tilly struggles with what is called Abnormal Repetitive Behavior. This is similar to compulsive behavior but limited to more specific instances and triggers. Her main repetitive behavior involves spinning, chasing her tail, and attempting to bite her tail. During these episodes, Tilly can sometimes be redirected with verbal cues. However, it's crucial not to physically intervene as this may escalate the behavior.Tilly is in a foster home where between medications and routine she is very well managed. She would do best in a calm and quiet environment with no children. She is social with both dogs and cats; however, playing with them can cause her to become over aroused and more prone to episodes. Other than overstimulation, Tilly is also sensitive to her back end being handled including that her tail has historically been able to trigger episodes. Being mindful of these sensitivities as well as keeping her tail trimmed short has been effective management of these two triggers.Tilly will go home with medication and will have a behavior consultation at pickup, so you are fully prepared to care for this sweet girl. I am available through our Foster to Adopt program. This program helps pets awaiting foster or that are under medical treatment be placed in with prospective adopters before they are made available for adoption. If interested in fostering through our Foster to Adopt program, sign up to be a foster online and express your interest in Tilly We can schedule a pick up and meet and greet appointment. https://www.operationkindness.org/foster/
