Families, children, and dogs

Small children (5 years and under) and small dogs don’t always mix and is one of the top reasons dogs are surrendered to kill and no-kill shelters in the United States. As a result, Pet Savers does not typically adopt dogs to families with very young children unless the circumstances are fitting.

Pet Care: Dogs

The following dogs have been placed through Pet Savers!

Diamond (Female)

I am a sweet little 7-year-old Chihuahua/Pomeranian mix! I'm pretty small, maybe only 5 pounds. I came in with my daughter, Mica, who is a bit taller, but I don't let it bother me. I am pretty laid back and enjoy going for walks and getting pets. I'm house-trained and good with kids and cats. I know how to walk on a leash, but also enjoy being carried around, too. I'm looking for a forever home that needs a cute little lap dog! I enjoy the company of my daughter Mica and the other small dogs here.

Kokoa (Female)

As you can see I am a beautiful long-haired Dachshund. I came from a breeder to Pet Savers a while back and was adopted. I had to be returned due to my owners health. I am currently a "plus-sized" girl and need to lose weight to live a long happy life. Maybe you can help me with that! I am house-trained, up-to-date, and get along with kids, dogs, and cats alike. I currently have several good applicants!

Lance (Male)

Nice to meet you. I am a sweet little dachshund/pit mix. You heard that right! I have the beautiful brindle color with short dachshund legs! I am a calm dog that loves kids and gets along with other dogs as well. I could probably easily learn that cats are part of the family, too. I listen really well because I want to be the best boy I can be. I am 9 months old, about 30 pounds, and housetrained.

Sadie – Fee $150 (Female)

I am a cute six year old brindle pit mix that was brought to Pet Savers because I was not getting along with the other dog in the house. However, I have had a kennelmate at Pet Savers and we did fine together, and during the storm I was fostered and got along with the other dog in the home. I do well both inside and outside, travel well, and know how to walk on a leash. I know a few tricks, like sit and fetch, and would love to learn more with you! Won't you come visit me?

I'm a handsome and calm 4-year-old Shepherd/Chow mix recently returned to Pet Savers through no fault of my own. Quick facts I'm house-trained, good with kids and dogs, walk on a leash and travel well. Even though I travel well occasionally I get car sick. I'm a calm and sweet boy that has a hard time with the loud hyper kennels here. Won't you be the one to give me a loving home?

I'm good with other dogs and considerate children. I'm housetrained, leash trained, and travel well. I even know commands like "sit" and "lay down." Come by and we can hang out!

Hey, Hey!! Ben the Jack Russell here. I'm 6 months old and high energy. Not house trained yet, and not neutered, but I need a home where an active little dog will be welcome. Pet Savers will get me up-to-date and I will be ready to go. You must have a vet already, and it would be good if you'd read up on my special breed.

Harry (Male)

Hey, want a really unusual challenge? I am an adorable 3 1/2 year old small dog that came from a breeder. Due to the situation, I turned out not quite "right." I LOVE other dogs and maybe children, but I am afraid of adults. If you are near a door and I want to go in or out, I will not as long as you are standing there. I am not housetrained, but a doggie door would be a big help. Do not expect me to be a lap dog.

No first time dog owners, and you must have a veterinarian already.

Rusty (Male)

I'm a Hound/Terrier mix. I came from DeSoto Animal Control and am thankful that Pet Savers saved me from being euthanized. I am a large and powerful guy who loves to play tug of war. Because of my strength and the fact I like to grab whatever might be dangling from your hand I need a home without any small children. Also I'm going to need some leash training because I don't like to wear a leash. I don't want to brag but I think I'm a really good looking guy. I mean look at that picture you gotta agree I take a great photo. The only way to see what a great guy I am is to stop by and meet me.

You might remember me from when I was found not too long ago and brought to Pet Savers. No one came forward, so I am looking for a new home. I am a big sweetheart, emphasis on BIG! I am at least 100 pounds and have a mastiff build, but I could be 100 different breeds! I am relaxed most of the time, happy to go walking or get pets. There are some dogs here I don't like, but otherwise I get along with everyone. I know a few tricks, like sit and stay, and would love to learn more with you! Do you have room for a unique boy like me?

My name is Avery and let me tell you - my life has been a roller coaster ride. I started out here at Pet Savers, was adopted, but am now back because my family is being evicted. Let's just say they weren't the most responsible people I have known in my life and I am relieved to be here and looking for someone, well, more like YOU. I am a gentle, sweet, loving loyal girl who will promise my devotion until the very end. Feeling lonely, need a companion to sit by your side? I bet I can help you out. Remember, my name is Avery and I am looking for my new best friend too.

Andy (Male)

ADOPTED 6/2012

Andy is 18 months old and absolutely adorable. His previous owners were older and simply did not have the time or energy to give him what he needs. Already we can tell that he is a really good dog - he just needs to be a part of a family and given the opportunity and attention to become an even better dog.

Many of his "challenges" are not his fault. He is house trained in the day but does have accidents at night. Solvable. He likes to chew shoes and whatever is left out. Again, solvable. This tells us that he has been bored at his home and will find his own way of entertaining himself and getting your attention. Can you blame him? Not really! He loves lap time and attention. He is not leash trained but we think that he will be eager to learn. We have a few tips on this. He is loyal, loving and affectionate and is looking for his special someone to bond with.

Pippa Kate (Female)

Hi, my name is Pippa Kate and I’m ready for my furever home! I’m 4 months old and I weigh 3.5 pounds. I am a Chihuahua/rat terrier mix and will surely be a small furbaby. I’ve started learning to use puppy pads, but I love to go outdoors and will go potty when I am out with my foster mom and dog pals. I like to run circles around the yard and burn off some of all that puppy energy that I have. I sleep in my little folding dog house at night and I NEVER wake up at night! Isn’t that great? I’m a whirling dervish when I play, LOVE, LOVE my toys and I try to fake out the bigger dogs by growling at them, but they just ignore me. I run after the cats and have caught a swat a few times, but they try to ignore me, too. I’ll need someone patient to teach me what I need to know as I get to be an adult. After all, I’m just a baby now and all I want is LOTS of love, kindness and good chow several times a day. You can contact my foster mom @ 318-423-9709 and talk about me.
