Police Pup Wednesday


Officer Johnston hung out with Kia this weekend! Kia is a 1 and a half year old Labrador Retriever mix. You may have heard or seen Kia before since she was one of the pups in our first group who joined the Home for Hounds program with the Dallas Country Jail. She learned sit, shake and lay down while being trained by her inmate. She loves to be active and would love to be a hiking buddy or a lake dog (she loves to swim!).

Firefighter Friday

9.9.17 jack &itschner

Jack hung out with Firefighter Itschner before he went off to our Home for Hounds jail program to learn basic commands! Jack is a staff favorite. He loves all dogs, both big and small (just check out our Home for Hounds facebook page for videos!). Jack's a 1 and a half year old pit bull mix. He came in as a stray on July 10th, 2017.

Featured Foster Dog


Spotty (A143032) is a 7-year old, black Labrador Retriever mix. She has been in a foster home since August 11th 2016. She is a very easy going, mellow girl that walks great on a leash. She is dog selective so she will need to meet any other dogs in the home before she is adopted. She needs an adopter who will be patient with her and give her lots of love and attention!! We think she would do best in a home without small children. If you are interested in meeting Spotty, contact the shelter to set up a meeting at 972-237-8575.

His staff pick is Bonnie. Bonnie has just completed her 5 week training course with the Homes for Hounds program is looking for her furever home! This sweet pit mix is 2 years old and came in as a stray on March 10th 2017.
