DPA’s Dog the Month – September: Meet Duncan!

DPA’s Dog the Month – September: Meet Duncan!

This is Duncan, an Australian Kelpie/Weimaraner/Mixed with a sable coat that matches the color of a caramel macchiato!  And he’s just as sweet!  He’s an older boy with a great temperament who is looking for a hospice foster or his fur-ever home.  Duncan is a sweet boy with a few special needs. He has kidney disease, which is manageable, but he needs to go out a little more often so easy access to a yard or grassy area would be ideal for him.  Duncan is a smart dog who has spent time with a trainer to learn some basic commands.  He walks extremely well on a leash, loves to take you out for a walk and prefers a stable routine.  And he loves to play!   If you have a tennis ball and know how to play fetch, you might think about becoming Duncan’s best friend and taking him home 🙂   He loves his stuffed toys, too, taking care not to be too rough with them.  We think he’s a well-rounded pup with a lot to offer. Duncan bonds strongly with people and will be a loyal friend to his owner.  He would do best in a home without small children or cats.  He gets along well with other dogs if he’s given the time to be introduced properly, but would most likely prefer to be your one-and-only companion.   Do you think that you could provide the right home to Duncan? Apply to foster him or adopt him today! Now through the end of September his adoption fee is half...

DPA’s Cat of the Month – July: Meet Mystique!

DPA’s Cat of the Month – July: Meet Mystique!

Mystique.  Not to be confused with the superhuman X-men character, she is a very special cat!  Maybe she got her name because she has a fascinating aura of mystery about her or maybe she’s chock-full of charisma.  We don’t know, but we know this much, she’s a wonderful little kitty.  Mystique is a female Domestic Short Hair/Tortoiseshell mix who came to Dallas Pets Alive! with a litter of six kittens. She’s been living with her foster mom since that time and is looking for a forever home.   Mystique is a pretty cat with a distinctive look. She has light green eyes and a tortoiseshell coat that is multi-colored brown, black and white.  One side of her face is a mottled brown and the other side is black so she always looks like she’s standing with her right side to the sun. It’s a look that suits her well and could easily be adding to that aura of mystery she’s so famous for.  She’s a young cat, about two years old. This special cat is also a people-lover.  Mystique is gentle, has good manners and a sweet maternal side.  She’s been a great mom to her six kittens and according to her foster, is the perfect house guest who likes to use a scratching post.  She’s very affectionate and loves to sit with you.    When she isn’t cuddling with you, Mystique can be found sitting near a window in the sunshine or sweetly giving face snuggles.  We think she may have been hanging out with some canines because get this, she comes when you call her name.  Not...
DPA’s Dog the Month – July: Meet Gus!

DPA’s Dog the Month – July: Meet Gus!

Meet Gus, a Black Mouth Cur/Mixed with a steady disposition and a love for just about anyone he meets!  He’s an amiable pup who gets along easily with the other foster dogs living with him and quickly bonds to the people around him.  It’s been said that he has never met a person he hasn’t liked! Gus is a handsome, muscular dog with a tan coat and black muzzle. His eyes are a caramel brown and his black-tipped ears flop at half-mast.  He’s a larger dog who is protective and affectionate with his family.   Both friendly and fearless, he would do well in a home with other dogs his size.   Gus is a people-loving pooch with a particular penchant for playtime.  His ropes and chew toys are his favorite distractions and he would just love to teach you how to play with them.  He will also enthusiastically take you on his daily walks.  When playtime is over, his affectionate side will come out as he follows you around the house to get his fill of pets and cuddles.  And you are sure to have a polite housemate because Gus always asks for permission before jumping onto the sofa to lie either next to or on top of you!   Gus will do best with an active family who will provide him with all the love and structure he needs.  He enjoys pleasing his owners and is good with kids.  If Gus finds a family who appreciates his particular charm, he is sure to reward them with years of loyalty and love.   Are you looking for a special...
DPA’s Dog the Month – June: Meet Elliot!

DPA’s Dog the Month – June: Meet Elliot!

Meet Elliott, a Staffordshire Terrier mix with a playful nature known for affectionately following her favorite people around the house and befriending others with her winsome charm.  She’s (yes, Elliot is a girl!) an attractive brown and white pup with a stocky build and deep brown eyes who looks good in a green feather boa but prefers to be seen near–or on top of–her favorite people.  Whether she is curled up in the crook of your knees or playing with the other dogs she lives with, she is an affectionate companion who craves your company.  Elliott was at a local shelter expecting a large family–nine puppies–when Dallas Pets Alive! volunteers first met her.  She shows some scars and hasn’t had an easy life but, against the odds, has learned to trust people and show a whole lotta lovin’ through kisses, hugs and loyal companionship. We are so happy that all of her adorable puppies have found good homes, but now it’s Elliott’s turn to find the right one! Elliott is a strong, smart, athletic lady who would love to live with another dog her size to share her enthusiasm for playing fetch and tug-of-war and just chillin’ out at home.  She’s good with kids, is house and crate-trained, obedient, fun-loving and walks well on a leash.  There’s a lot that’s right with this special pup! You could say she’s the total package.  Could you give Elliot the second chance and forever home she deserves? Apply to adopt her...
