Story
Meet Ivy! She is 2 yr old spayed female American Staffordshire mix that weighs 55lbs. She came in as a stray on 12/29 to the Mesquite Animal Shelter. She was adopted on 4/29, yet was surrendered to the shelter on 5/13 due to landlord issues. Ivy is absolutely so sweet, gentle and 150% lovebug! Her tail wags non stop, with a big grin on her face and you just have to give her hugs and kisses! She will cuddle next to you or put her paws in your lap and you will just smile. She walks well on a leash, takes treats gently, and I feel she has been crate trained. She enjoys running through the shelter yard getting her exercise, tho she didn't have much interest in toys. She also told me that she prefers being an inside pup where she can cuddle close to her own family. As we walked through the shelter with other dogs barking, she didn't pay much attention, but we do always ask if there will be another dog in the home to please ask the shelter for a dog test. If you would like to have a smile on your face every day, Ivy is the girl for you. She has so much love to give! Come spend some time with Ivy.

Story
Meet Gabe! He is a 2 yr old neutered male American Staffordshire/Tosa mix that weighs 57lbs. He came in as a stray on 2/9 to the Mesquite Animal Shelter.  He is such a handsome boy and definitely knows how to pose for a picture! Gabe has a very gentle soul. He walks well on a leash and enjoys taking his time walking through the shelter yard. He can be shy at first if around many people he does not know. The more time he spends with you, the more confident he becomes. He takes treats gently, enjoys being petted and may be house trained too. He enjoyed climbing on the play equipment and stood at the top with his head up enjoying all the smells. He enjoys chasing balls but does not return them. He is so ready to find his own loving home with a secured backyard he can enjoy, but then live indoors where he enjoys the company of his human companions. Walking past other dogs barking at him he did not have a response, but we do always ask if you have another dog in the home, to please ask the shelter for a dog test. Please help by networking him or send a rescue tag to rescues@cityofmesquite.comwith the subject line TAG 55249467. Any further questions, please email or call972.216.6283.

Story
Meet Jasper, an American Staffordshire terrier mix, picked up by one of our officers along with his sibling, Johnny, and brought to the Mesquite Animal Shelter on 3/25. Jasper weighs 54 pounds and is about 3 years old. The two boys are obviously from the same litter because they look so similar and are the same age and weight. Jasper walks quite nicely on a leash. He knows the sit command, and will do so for treats which he takes gently. He has a chill personality and is friendly, sweet and lovable, as well as affectionate. This was demonstrated when the officer who picked the brothers up came into the room and Jasper made a beeline for her, giving her lots of tail wags, hugs, snuggles and adoring looks! He obviously remembered her. Jasper is timid and nervous and it's obvious he doesn't have a clue as to why he ended up in a city shelter and where is people are. He appears to have lived as an outside dog. He has fur loss and scaly skin on his back. It doesn't appear to be anything more than a good nutritious diet and proper care would resolve.

Story
Meet Sawyer, an American Staffordshire mix that was picked up by one of our officers and brought to the Mesquite Animal Shelter on 5/24. Sawyer weighs 54 pounds and is approx 1 1/2 years old. He has a chill personality, is calm and gentle. He is cautious and uneasy in the shelter environment. He's timid and nervous and is a work in progress. We will continue to work with him to help him feel more confident, comfortable and trusting. He seems to want to be friends as he is a-ok with his soft smooth fur being petted and someone sitting close and interacting with him. He very much enjoyed being in the yard and rolling around in the soft grass. However, he was more than ready to go back inside perhaps indicating he has lived as an indoor dog and that is his preference. We think all of our dogs would live their best life being inside with their people. He did his business as soon as he entered the yard. Sawyer walks well on a leash. He quite enjoys treats and takes them nicely. Will you assist Sawyer in having his stay at the shelter be a brief one?

Story
Meet Auggie! He is a 1 yr old male Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer mix that weighs 44lbs. He came into the Mesquite Animal Shelter on 6/13 as a stray. He is a very handsome boy with stunning eyes and appears to have been well cared for, yet he has not been reclaimed. He is a true investigator and keeps his nose down sniffing every part of the shelter yard. He is a very sweet and gentle boy. As we walked past to other dogs barking at him, for some he appeared intimidated, and other she would bark a bit back. Its always best if there is another dog in the home to please ask the shelter for a dog test. He hopes to find his own loving family that has a secured back yard that he can spend time investigating, then most importantly come back inside to sleep the night way on his own fluffy dog bed. Come meet this great boy named Auggie and hopefully make him a part of your loving family.

Story
(Dallas, Texas - Foster/Adopter desperately needed) King truly needs a hero, and we know that people with generous and kind hearts are out there. King is a playful guy, about 4.5 ~5 y & 40-45 lbs, so loving and content with whatever affection you'd give him. (a couple of videos in the Comment) King was abandoned and left alone in a small backyard run/kennel for 4 years exposed to all weather elements and confined in isolation and loneliness. We were so heartbroken seeing him carrying his bowl panting alone in the heat and dirt last summer, so Angie rescued him. Yet, without a foster, King's been living in a crate at a boarding facility for a year, and we desperately want him to have a chance to learn and enjoy living in a home! King's had several training sessions at the boarding facility, learned some basic commands and to trust humans, and is especially smitten by ladies. King's now a happy guy and loves loves the attention (& treats, of course). King enjoys a quiet life with NO other animal, being with humans, and feeling the breeze and sunlight on his face. King's content with carrying and chewing his toys by himself without the bother of the world. We really believe that a soul who suffered years of neglect and desolation deserves an understanding person/family to love him, and King'd give absolute devotion in return. King needs to be the only dog, is fixed, crate and house trained, and shots up to date. Please let us know if your home has a warm spot for King (for foster, Angie's Friends will provide everything that King needs).  June 25, 2024, 10:31 am

Story
I adopted Minnie (Female/2 years) at the Garland Animal Shelter and Adoption Center. At the kennel she was ready to go out and play. Completely happy to be outside and took her home. Still acts like a puppy when around you by seeking attention, jumping on you, and giving love bites, but when it's serious, Minnie will protect you and your surroundings. Has insane hearing, great watchdog, and athletic when needed. Would recommend kennel, raised bed, or dog house. Toy wise I would say any kind of ball, in which I would recommend Chuck it or Kong brand in a large size. Loves anything that squeaks. Lastly on walks, just have a sturdy leash and should be fine, unless she sees a squirrel. At their new home, I would like for an experienced adopter to take care of Minnie as she can be a handful, but easier if they know about American Staffordshire Terrier. Will be right by your side when needed. Loves to take walks, persistent in playing fetch, and sit patiently when feeding.

Story
Hello world! I’m Topaz. I’m a compact lady who is looking for a fun-loving home to call my own. I was born in June of 2021, I'm spayed, and I am current on vaccinations and heartworm preventative. I’m looking for an active home where I can be the only pup. I’ve learned to ignore dogs on a leash, but I’m very picky about my friends and don’t really want to share my home or family with another dog. I’m a busy girl who is very smart and really enjoys learning new skills. I'm bold and confident and have a lot of work ethic, so my ideal home would be with someone interested in a partner for solo dog sports like agility or dock diving. I’m crate trained, house trained, and know basic obedience skills. I do like to play, but I’m also very good at snuggling. I have the softest fur, and my human friends say my fur is like velvet. Who is ready to come meet me?

These pups are in Mesquite, Texas too!

Story
Meet Cassidy, a Boxer with perhaps some Staffordshire Bull terrier in the mix that was picked up by one of our officers and brought to the Mesquite Animal Shelter, along with his brother Conway on 6/4. Cassidy weighs about 24 pounds and is 7 months of age. He and his brother get along just great and are kenneled together. When I brought them into the room in which I did their evaluations, they wrestled, romped, and just had a crazy fun time stretching their little legs. Cassidy is a playful, lively, alert boy that has lots of puppy energy and behavior. He loves treats and was willing to stand around waiting for me to dispense them during the photo session. He is friendly and fine with being petted. He has not been taught to walk on a leash and so I had to carry him. This would be the first order of business for his adopter or foster to teach him to walk on a leash. Cassidy will need daily enrichment, exercise and playtime and it goes without saying he needs to live inside. This is no backyard dog. Will you please assist Cassidy in leaving the shelter

Story
I have named this adorable Boxer puppy Conway. He and his brother Cassidy were picked up by one of our officers on 6/4 and brought to the Mesquite Animal Shelter. He and his brother are both 7 months of age and Conway weighs about 24 pounds. He is brimming with puppy energy and behavior. He has not been taught to walk on a leash. I had to carry him so he could definitely use some leash training. He is a playful youngster with a sweet and friendly nature. He loves treats and perhaps would be easy to train and teach some commands because he is treat motivated. He and his brother are kenneled together and get along just fine. They had so much fun romping and playing in the room in which I did their evaluations. It was fun to watch them play and interact with one another. He is most anxious to find himself a home in which he will live inside with his people and be made to feel an important part of the family circle. Will you please assist Conway on the journey to his new home
