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.

Howdy, I’m Deputy Donut! I’m short, cute, and fun! I’m still a puppy and love everyone I meet. I’m always on the go in search of my next adventure. If you have a zest for life then you’ve found your perfect match! I can’t wait to see all the commands I’m going to learn in the HFH program. Are you interested in seeing what I learned in person? Set up a meet and greet and greet to see me in action!

Deputy Donut is estimated to be a nine-month-old Basset Hound mix.

Hola, I’m Rosa! I’m short, cute, and fun! I’m a social butterfly and make friends with every human I meet. I will follow you wherever you go and just sit next to you! I’m happiest when I’m surrounded by the people I love. I also seem to do well with other dogs. I already know I’m going to have so much fun and learn many new commands in the HFH program. Set up a meet and greet with me soon! 

Rosa is estimated to be 1 year and 7 months old Beagle mix.

Bonjour, I’m Holly! I’m new to the shelter and the H4H program. I’m sweet as can be, know how to sit, and adore treats! I seem to be on the more reserved side but that’s only because everything is new to me. I’m hoping the program helps me come out of my shell more and people can see my true personality shine. Want to be best friends? Set up a meet and greet with me! I promise you'll love me.

Holly is estimated to be about a year old Pointer mix.
