Our rescue is an all (unpaid) volunteer organization.

Your patience is appreciated!

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.

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.

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

Shirley is a senior poodle looking for a lap to snuggle on and a family to care for her in her senior years. We believe she is around 12 years old but it’s tough to tell by looking at her as her eyes still sparkle like a younger dog. There is still enough spring in her step for short walks and she still stands to paw at your legs begging for attention. Shirley is the kind of poodle mix that wants to be your constant companion. She loves all the attention you will give her and snuggling is her favorite past time. Shirley is a quiet girl, unless she’s whining for your attention. She enjoys children who are respectful and gentle and hasn’t met a person she doesn’t like. Shirley does well with dogs but seems to feel more comfortable with dogs around her size. She’s a small girl only weighing 12 lbs and does like to be spoiled a bit by having canned food mixed in with her dry food. Shirley is in good health for her age. She does have an issue in her back that caused her tail to not work properly and was getting in the way when she was going potty. We had her tail docked to help solve this issue. Sometimes Shirley does leak a little urine when heading outside to potty but she tries hard to hold it and could easily wear diapers at times if needed. Shirley rides well in a car and enjoys going bye bye for walks or rides. Shirley just had a dental so all of her remaining teeth are nice and clean. We know there is a home out there looking for a sweet tempered, friendly and champion snuggler dog like Shirley. Shirley’s adoption fee is $100 and you can apply to adopt her at www.pawpatroldayton.com. Shirley is heartworm negative, microchipped, spayed, vaccinated, and dewormed.
