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 his people once he’s adjusted and feeling safe in his new home. We have found that Vader adjusts better if there is another dog in the home that is friendly and confident. Vader likes to play with other dogs so his new canine roommate will need to be ready to goof off with him. Vader doesn’t seem to be overly fond of the smaller kids so his new home needs to have no one younger than 13. He doesn’t seem to mind visiting kids, provided they respect his personal space and he’s allowed to go to a safe area if he’s uncomfortable. 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. 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 house trained and although he wasn’t a fan of his crate at first he’s learned that it’s a safe place to stay when he’s not sure about things. Vader is versatile though and doesn’t need to be crated all the time once he’s settled in. He isn't crazy about cats. Vader rides great in the car but sometimes he seems confused about getting in or out. 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.

Charlie Brown

Charlie Brown is a fun fella that has been through a lot in his young 6 months of life. He had something happen to his head when he was really young that caused him to have a rough start on learning to trust. He is nearly all healed up now and starting to figure out what life should really be like. Charlie likes to play ALL THE TIME... but he does great at playing with other dogs to get his energy out. Because he is still building his confidence, he would do wonderfully having a well adjusted dog that like to play but isn't hyper-active to help him continue to learn how to be a dog. He appreciates slow intros and to both dogs and people and we believe he is house trained and is crate trained. Charlie knows sit, down, and wait. He is still a bit of a work in progress and will need someone to continue to train him. He is easily overwhelmed by little children and needs a home without the chaos little ones bring. Charlie Brown loves to be petted and snuggle on the couch. He is an expert napper and is love bug extraordinaire. You can apply to adopt Charlie Brown at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs. His adoption fee is $225 and he is vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. We believe he is a hound/lab mix and is approximately 35 pounds.

Adoption fee: $225

Rusti

Rusti is a sweet and gentle boy that makes a great cuddle buddy. His favorite activities include stretching out on a comfortable couch or bed and sniffing around the yard. Rusti loves to be praised and encouraged and is constantly seeking attention. This handsome boy is a lower-energy dog that will follow his people around the house and happily wags his tail. Though he takes a little while to warm up to people, he loves big once he knows he is safe and loved. He is such a great 5 year old pup that loves his crate and finds it a comfortable den where he has his own space. He plays really well with other dogs... even those that can be a bit much at times. He can play fetch and is learning how to play with toys. Rusti is fully house trained and is generally very well-mannered. We believe Rusti to be a 55 pound Viszla-Labrador Retriever mix that loves people food and is starting to learn dog food is good too and much more healthy for him. Loud noises and chaotic situations can be a bit much for him and where we feel he would benefit greatly from having another dog in the house... young kids are too much for him and it is clear he is uncomfortable with all their running and acting all silly. Rusti is a great dog that is looking for someone to give him a little love and encouragement and is looking to be someone's best friend for the rest of his life. You may apply to adopt Rusti at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs. His adoption fee is $200 and he is vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, and heartworm negative. He tested positive for Lyme disease but is on treatment and asymptomatic.

Adoption fee: $200

King

King is a friendly, happy-go-lucky little dude. He is happy to see people and other dogs and is not afraid of the big guys. He has a great energy level and it's hard to believe he is a senior. He even has good hearing and eyesight. King knows his name and responds well when you call him. He loves to go for walks, rides and loves to run in the yard. He has approximately 15 years of experience at being fully house trained and even has the cutest little potty dance to get your attention when he needs to go out if you don't see him sitting by the door. This handsome min-pin mix does well in a crate but doesn't really need one. He sleeps through the night and isn't the least bit destructive. He does best eating alone though if other dogs are near... as he will gently warn them what's his is his and they need not try to take any. It's probably because he eats soft food due to his teeth being 15 years old and that makes his food a very high value. He loves treats though and is very well behaved with them. King likes to get baths and be brushed and enjoys trotting around the yard. King is an independent little fella that is pretty low maintenance and prefers to lay in his own bed. He likes the company of others though and will come to you for attention, enjoying it on his terms. He loves rubs and scratches and likes to give your legs little kisses as you walk by. King can be a talker at times but responds very well to being asked to shush. He never tries to dart out the door or leave the yard. We have learned King isn't crazy about being picked up, held, or hugged and will let you know it's not his thing. Because of this we don't feel little children in the home is a good fit for him. King is a joy to have around and needs a place to call his castle. He might be a little older but doesn't act like it. So much so that we feel his motto is "Long Live the King"! You can apply to adopt King at www.pawpatoldayton.com/adoptable-dogs. His adoption fee is $100 and he is vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, and heartworm negative.

Adoption fee: $100

Kevin

Kevin is a super goofy boy that loves to play, loves to eat (except for processed cheese because he has standards) and loves getting snuggles. His fur is super soft and feels like velvet. Kevin is kid friendly but needs a kid that isn't afraid of a happy boy full of fun. His tail can become a weapon when he wags it happily and we wouldn't want him to take a small child out with it. This stud muffin is very smart and picks up on what his people want from him very quickly. He knows sit, down, shake and is house and crate trained. He minds his manners and doesn't get up on the table or try to mess with things he shouldn't. Kevin is quickly learning how to read other dog's cues and appropriately plays nicely with them without getting to be too much. He does need slow and proper introductions to them as he eagerly wants to meet other dogs playfully and they don't always feel the same way. He prefer his high value treats in his crate when other dogs are around as he will simply remind them gently they aren't to take his stuff away. If you are looking for a dog that makes little grunting noises and is constantly sticking his butt up in the air when he plays, then Kevin might be the fella for you! We believe Kevin is a Staffordshire/Pit Bull Terrier mix that is approximately 18 months old and 60 pounds. You can apply to adopt him at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs. His adoption fee is $175 and he is vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, and heartworm negative.

Adoption fee: $175
