Interested in our rescue dogs? The process of adopting a dog from us is simple. 

  1. Browse our Adoptable Dogs list.
  2. If you see one you’re interested in, click the button to apply for that dog.
  3. We will process your application.
  4. After you are approved, we will schedule a time for you and the dog to meet each other!
  5. In the event that you don’t choose the dog after all, you will still be an approved adopter and able to schedule other Meet & Greet sessions.

Our rescue is an all (unpaid) volunteer organization. For each application we receive it takes us approximately 3 hours to review, contact all personal and veterinary references, and make a decision on approval of it. Depending upon volunteer availability, this can take us several days to accomplish, especially when we receive many applications or if we have difficulties reaching references. Your patience is appreciated!


Meet Our Adoptable Dogs!

Vader

Vader is a gentle giant. He is very sweet and affectionate and so good with kids and strangers when they walk into the house. This handsome boy doesn’t bark much and is very gentle when taking treats. Vader simply loves to cuddle and will paw at you when he wants your attention. He can get a little jealous if you are paying attention to another dog and will just come up and make sure don't forget that he exists. Vader knows sit and shake and enjoys toys... especially tennis balls. He plays very well with other dogs and shares nicely. This 18 month old wants to be next to his people at all times and is pretty chill for the most part. He respects a 3ft chain link fence and is not destructive. Vader was kept outside as a farm dog but is doing great at life on the inside. He is almost completely potty trained and only marks occasionally which will hopefully stop after he is neutered. He isn't crazy about cats or his crate. He will quiet in one after about 20 minutes after you put him in one but he really prefers to be with his people and whines when you leave him. Vader rides great in the car but is still confused about how to get into one. He is good on a leash until he sees a squirrel or another furry creature... then he forgets his manners. He is getting better on each walk he takes. Vader is ready to cuddle up with his people and stay warm and cozy on a chilly night. You can apply to adopt Vader at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs. His adoption fee is $200 and he is a mix of who knows what. He will be vaccinated, neutered, microchip and heartworm tested before he is adopted.

Adoption fee: $200

Ridley

Ridley is a super loving guy that is an expert fly catcher. He enjoys affection as if it is new to him and he really relishes it. He's a sweetheart that loves belly rubs, and will thank you with kisses. He is a pretty awesome dog that is extremely smart. This handsome, 45 pound fella knows sit, shake and is picking up on down and come. Ridley does well in a car and is both house and crate trained. He likes an I-Q ball, PB Kong and toys. He loves to go for walks and is picking up well on loose leash walking. This sweet American Staffordshire Terrier enjoys people and dogs alike and does well with all kinds big and small. He is gentle with kids and really enjoys their company. Ridley was picked up as a stray and is likely a fence jumper. He will require a 6 foot privacy fence so he can safely enjoy the backyard. He is a little bit afraid of thunderstorms and was likely never a house pet... yet that is now all he longs to be. Ridley is approximately 5 years old and only desires a true connection with a family that loves him with all their hearts and will give him the life he has always deserved. You can apply to adopt Ridley at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs. His adoption fee is $200 and he is vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, and heartworm negative.
