Saffron is a friendly, fun-loving, playful girl that loves everyone she meets. All she's ever wanted is a forever home with a warm bed and a human that loves her. This beautiful girl's favorite things to do is to be with her people, play with toys and other dogs. She's pretty easy going, low maintenance, and the undeniable Queen of Cuddling. Saffron is house and crate trained and has also mastered the fine art of kicking back and relaxing. What joy she brings when she makes a funny little snort sounds that you will find quite hilarious. Years of breeding and neglect are behind her now but did leave her with less than perfect vision caused by a dry eye condition. It’s easily treatable though with daily eye drops. She just knows her special person will understand that some days she will struggle to see things clearly; like treats in a hand or occasionally bumping into things. Could you be her special human and her happily-ever-after? Saffron’s adoption fee is $150 and she is available for adoption at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs. She is a Pit Bull Terrier mix that is approximately 8 years old. She is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and heartworm negative.
Adoption fee: $150

Bambi has no idea he is disabled and gets around super well. He even stands on his hind legs and hops around as if on a pogo stick. This sweet 6 month old puppy came from a local shelter where he was found in a crate on the side of the road with a sign that said "Help Me".... and that is exactly what we did! His back legs are fused straight and so that is how they will stay but that doesn't seem to slow him down one bit. Bambi loves everyone including kids, dogs and cats. He is technically like a baby that loves to be near his people and may even throw a fit if he can't be near them. He rides in a stroller and likes to be carried around. He also needs to wear a male diaper because he is incontinent but he doesn't seem to mind at all. Unlike most babies though... he sleeps through the night. This cutie does well in a playpen with a waterproof pad and is such a joy to have around. Bambi can't get on the furniture unless put there so that can be nice too. Because his back legs are paralyzed he can be a bit high maintenance and anyone considering adopting him needs to be aware of how much care he will need. He has to be wiped down with baby wipes frequently because he drags his legs on the ground and he can not control when he poos. He also scuffs up his little feet and legs so it helps to vet wrap them to keep them safe. He can not go for normal walks and must be cared for as if a baby. We just know someone is out there though that needs him as much as he needs someone to care for him. Bambi is an adorable little fella with a heart as big as his ears that is sure to bring happiness to whomever falls in love with him. Bambi will be getting neutered soon. He will be neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and heartworm tested before being adopted. Bambi is a 6 month old Chihuahua mix and his adoption fee is $200. You may apply to adopt him at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs.

Phyllis is the sweetest little thing ever! Have you seen her hair? Every day is a good hair day for Phyllis! This little old lady loves to wear clothes and be carried like a baby. She gets along great with other dogs and cats and is just so happy all the time. There is no need to crate her because she doesn't bother anything and loves to sleep in a warm bed at night. Although Phyllis is more or less house trained (like many silver senior ladies) when she has to go... she has to go as soon as she feels the need. Therefore you have to be quick to let her out when she says so. She is so cute in her doggy depends at night and when her people are away. Precious Phyllis has congestive heart failure which makes her cough sometimes. She is also practically toothless but has decided dentures aren't something she is interested in. Lastly, she is on a couple of medications that she will need to be on for the rest of her life. Phyllis has so much love to still give. We are happy to give her the life she deserves! Her adoption fee is $100 and she is vaccinated, spayed, microchipped, and heartworm negative.

Iris is a feisty fourteen-year-old boxer who is not lacking in age or spunk. She may have a dominant personality but is as sweet as can be and gets along great with dogs smaller than her and older kids. Iris is a big fan of food (aren’t we all?) and will defend her bowl if she has to. She also gets the zoomies so a fence would probably be good to have so she can roam. Iris is house and crate trained and has no issues with barking. Despite her age, she is still very playful and loves to take car rides! Iris is up to date on her vaccinations and spayed. She is also heartworm negative. You can apply to adopt her at https://pawpatroldayton.com/. Adoption Fee: $50

Introducing Skeeter! This handsome, lovable little Pomeranian may be a small fella weighing only 12 pounds, but he is huge in personality. We aren’t certain but we think 12-year-old Skeeter was likely raised as an only dog, however, he is doing very well in his foster home learning the ropes of being in a new environment and living with multiple fur siblings. Skeeter loves to be held and is learning to trust new people and that it’s ok to be picked up. Skeeter walks well on a leash and actually prefers going outside on a leash even if he has free reign to go in or out on his own. This little guy is also making progress on his social skills and working to curtail his instinct to mark. We hope this will diminish on his own since he was just recently neutered... but he wears a belly band like a champ in the meantime. Skeeter is a precious little dude that is looking for his forever home. His ideal family is someone that likes to cuddle and has a little patience and understanding to help him continue fine-tuning how to be a confident little fella. Could that be you? If you are interested in adopting Skeeter you may apply to adopt him at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs. His adoption fee is $150. Skeeter is up to date on his vaccinations, neutered, heartworm negative and microchipped.

Elvira is a tiny little Chihuahua that is still figuring out this big world. See Elvira came from a hoarding home where she lived inside the home with 59 other dogs, all related to her. Sadly this means that she missed out on normal socialization and this has left her scared of everything. Elvira came to us with severe demodex, this is the type of mange that you are born with and is not contagious to other dogs or people. She is being treated for this and her fur is coming back in. However, Demodex is something she will deal with for the rest of her life. Elvira is not trusting of new people or new dogs. Elvira will need more than love in her life. She will need patience, leadership and very likely help from a trainer until she is more settled. Elvira protects herself from things and people she is scared of, by growling and barking. For this reason and her size she will need a home that does not have children under 12 in it. Once she attaches to you, she follows you everywhere and wants to be with you all the time. Elvira likes to burrow in the blankets and curl up next to you. Elvira will never be a social butterfly but she will love the people she attaches too fiercely. Elvira is NOT house trained at all. She is like a very young puppy when it comes to house training. Before applying for this special girl, please remember this girl is going to take a lifetime of work to help her overcome her fears. Elvira is approximately 8 months old and weighs 4 lbs. Elvira is a flight risk and therefore has a fence requirement. The only approved fences will be a privacy fence or a fence with chicken wire around the bottom to keep her in. Elvira’s adoption fee is $200.

This beautiful little Chihuahua is Lolah. She loves to cuddle and be with her people and absolutely love-love-loves belly rubs! Lolah gets along well with other dogs, both large & small, is crate trained, and good on a leash. She loves a soft place to curl up - a cushy sofa or soft bed are perfect – and even better if she’s cuddling with her human. Need to run some errands? Tiny little Lolah enjoys car rides and is the perfect companion to tag along in your purse or tote and will love keeping you company when you have shopping to do or places to go.

At just 2 years old, Lolah is also still learning the joys of playing and being loved and is looking for a forever home and loving family that excels at belly rubs, to call her own. She especially like kids and will follow them just about anywhere. A home with another dog would also be ideal to help Lolah feel at ease in her new home.

He does great with dogs of all shapes and sizes and even likes cats. Walter likes casual walks, going for car rides, and eating with the few teeth he has left.
