DPA’s Dog of the Month – Meet Mickey!

DPA’s Dog of the Month – Meet Mickey!

This could be the most memorable Valentine’s Day you’ve ever had. In fact, it could change your life forever. You won’t need cupids with harps on greeting cards, bouquets of flowers or dinner reservations, but you will need a big heart and some dog biscuits. We have a special someone for you with four legs and a happy tail, looking for a permanent home to call his own! Meet Mickey, a charming dog with a friendly disposition who is known for his good behavior and love of kids! Mickey’s personality really shines through in the lifestyle photos that his foster family has taken of him. He’s a loving and loyal friend, and it’s not just puppy love, it’s the real thing. He’s fond of people, frequently cuddles up to someone, and even enjoys putting one paw on your leg to get you to “hold his paw.” A dog that wants to hold your hand in more ways than one, Mickey is going to be a wonderful addition to someone’s family. His foster mom says she’s never seen such a loving dog! When you hear of his affectionate and loyal nature, it’s easy to see why he is Dallas Pets Alive’s choice for the February dog feature. He is obviously going to bring a lot of canine love to some fortunate home. About Mickey: Mickey is a four year old Boxer/Pit Bull mix with a short coat that features some adorable cafe-au-lait spots on a white background. Add some expressive ears and soulful brown eyes, and you’ve got a charming pup who hopes to be your date this Valentine’s Day!...
DPA’s Cat the Month – February: Meet Millie!

DPA’s Cat the Month – February: Meet Millie!

This is Millie, an attractive black-and-white kitty with a soft heart who has transformed from a scared stray to a great lap cat! The rocky path behind her might surprise you, especially when you see how friendly she has become with people and other cats. She’s changed before our eyes, and we couldn’t be happier for her! And everyone is the winner because Millie is going to make a wonderful companion for someone in her new forever home. Millie’s Beginnings: When she first went into her foster home, Millie was very timid and preferred to hide. Like most rescued animals, Millie had been through a lot just trying to survive on her own. She was traumatized and didn’t know who she could trust. Fortunately for her, Dallas Pets Alive came along and linked her with her foster mom. Millie spent about a month hiding from her patient foster mom, Caroline, and the other cat in the household. She used her black-and-white markings to blend into the lights and shadows of Caroline’s home, fearful of all contact with the world past her paws. Time is a great healer though, and with Caroline’s compassion, Millie eventually made some tentative steps out into a more cheerful world, leaving the security of her haven under the bed and sofa, and even forming a friendship with Caroline’s other cat! That was about a year ago, and since then, Millie has transformed from a shy feline into an affectionate pet who is a full-fledged member of the household with enough confidence to greet house guests and visitors. She’s come a long way! Now we want...

DPA’s Cat the Month – January: Meet Jasper!

DPA’s Cat the Month – January: Meet Jasper!

Is he black on white or white on black? Is he light on shadow or shadow on light? I just can’t decide. Whatever the case, the tuxedo markings on Jasper set him apart, making him look like a pianist in a jazz club or the perfect prom date, which gives him a slightly distinguished look. Maybe that’s why people say he’s elegant! He’s a Domestic Short Hair mix with beautiful, soft gold eyes with a white chin, bib, belly and paws. All he needs now is a red rhinestone collar, a pair of sunglasses and a Miles Davis CD. If you don’t know who Miles Davis is or what CDs are, think of Jasper getting ready for a smooth Michael Bublé concert. About Jasper: Jasper has a big fan club and it’s not just because he’s so handsome in his tux. His foster family describes him as fearless and inquisitive. I suppose that’s because he loves to play with a laser pointer and small toy balls for most of the day, forever exploring his environment and finding ways to blaze a path to adventure in every room of the house. He’s an active prom date who loves to jump and climb. But he has another side, too. He is always ready and eager to give you all kinds of quiet affection. And when the dance is over, he loves to roll over and let you rub his belly. Ah, this is the life! True to his cool, James Bond personality, Jasper is adaptable and will be comfortable in any home. He is good with other cats and dogs and is friendly around...
DPA’s Dog the Month – January: Meet Roo!

DPA’s Dog the Month – January: Meet Roo!

Are you looking for fifty pounds of happy, intelligent energy? Would a loyal companion with polka-dotted ears and an easy smile be on your 2017 wish list? Well, look no further because Dallas Pets Alive has a very personable, white, four-year-old Parson Russell Terrier mix named Roo, who is looking to adopt the right person or family. If you’ve ever seen the t.v. sitcom Frasier, you may remember Eddie, the eager and responsive Jack Russell Terrier who stole the show each week with his hysterical antics. Roo’s breed is a cousin to Eddie’s. She has the same temperament, but is more obedient, adaptable and easier to train than a Jack Russell. And she will make a fantastic family pet! She will be an excellent companion and will make a wonderful watchdog. About Roo: Roo wants to adopt someone who can stay current with her look. She is a very fashionable pet and often rocks out. Check her photos, people. She looks fab sporting a red collar or a pair of blue sequined rabbit ears. She is already stylin’ and ready to meet her fans! Can you keep up? In addition to being stylish and cute, Roo has bypassed the traditional boundaries of canine/feline job responsibilities and is an expert mouser. Yes! Now how much would you pay? A mouse-catching dog isn’t a common commodity these days. In addition to her other skills, Roo is house-trained, crate-trained and knows some simple commands! Roo’s Beginnings: Roo’s early days were a bit rough, and we are hoping to make up for that by finding the right home for her. She was rescued...
