Meet the current dogs being trained at the Dallas County Jail!

All of the dogs:

  • Go through a 5-week training session and live with their trainers, handlers and caretakers in a dormitory style work camp
  • Have had temperament tests and typically get along well with other dogs and people
  • Are immediately available for adoption, but we ask that you wait to take them home until after their graduation
  • Crate trained, house trained, and learn basic obedience
  • Work on their leash skills in the program, but may need additional help after graduation
  • Are up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed/neutered and heartworm negative

If you find a dog that you would like to adopt, please fill out our online adoption application. It only takes a few minutes, and you don't pay anything until you have met the dog and are ready to take him or her home. 

Additional paperwork will need to be completed at the shelter.
