Interested in our rescue dogs? The process of adopting a dog from us is simple.
- Browse our Adoptable Dogs list.
- If you see one you’re interested in, click the button to apply for that dog.
- We will process your application.
- After you are approved, we will schedule a time for you and the dog to meet each other!
- 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!

Single, Lovable, Female looking for Companion and Best Friend. Harlowe isn't picky when it comes to love. She is interested in singles, married couples, and even families with older kids. Harlowe enjoys taking walks, going on car rides, kayaking, swimming, and just hanging out. She is amazing at sharing the covers, at helping you watch your calorie intake by taking care of your left over pizza crust, and letting you binge watch what you want to watch on Netflix... even when it isn't what she would have chosen. Harlowe walks well on the leash, knows several commands, is house broken, crate trained and one of the biggest lovers ever. Harlowe is looking for that special home where she can receive all the attention she wants and not have to share it with other dogs... unless it is a puppy... and then she will make an exception. Harlowe is a 5 & 1/2 year old Pit Bull mix and has been vaccinated, micro-chipped, spayed, and is heartworm negative. Harlowe's adoption fee is $150. To meet Harlowe and learn more about our adoption process, go to www.pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs.

If you are looking for a big fluffy guy to call your best buddy, then look no further because Buddy is here! This large Collie mix is exactly all that. At 87 lbs he’s definitely big and more fluff than he knows what to do with! This 7 year old gentleman landed in a rural shelter after his owner passed away. Like any loyal companion Buddy stayed right by his owner’s side until people arrived to help. The vet says Buddy is a little too big and could stand to shed a few pounds, however he does have hypothoyroidism and will need to be on a daily medication for life. . He will need some exercise in short amounts as he will overheat pretty easily and his diet will need to be watched. Buddy is good with dogs with proper introduction and once they are friends will share his toys with them. Buddy is house trained and crate trained. Poor Buddy is absolutely terrified of storms though and will need an understanding adopter to help him through those scary times. Buddy will need regular grooming and brushing to keep his beautiful coat looking great. Buddy’s adoption fee is $150 and you can apply for him at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs. Buddy is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, dewormed and heartworm tested.

Petunia is a 10 month old boxer/terrier mix who came to us when her owners were unable to care for her anymore. Petunia is the most petite little boxer we have ever seen. This girl probably weighs about 20 pounds and is probably no more than 18 inches high. She literally is like a little miniature boxer with the cutest terrier howl. Petunia is a bit shy and nervous about new things and people but when she comes around she’s just a wonderful girl. She missed out on a lot of the socialization that she needed to help her feel better about new things. Now that Petunia has relaxed in her foster home she’s shown us what a true doll she really is. Petunia likes to gather her toys in one place, many times on her foster parents’ bed. Petunia is house trained and crate trained. Petunia is great with dogs and loves to play with them. It would probably help Petunia a lot to have a dog friend who is confident and friendly. Petunia is timid of children and we feel she would best be placed in a home with kids 11 and older at this time. Petunia is looking for a home to help her blossom into the beautiful flower she can be and give her all the love she needs. Petunia's adoption fee is $200 and you can apply for her at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs. Petunia will be spayed microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and dewormed for adoption.
Adoption fee: $200

Cersi is looking for someone to be her best buddy. She is quiet, has great recall, rides well in a car, and is well behaved. This amazing 3 year Anatolian/German Shepherd mix is well crate and house trained and can be left out when you leave and return to the house in perfect order. Cersi likes hanging with other dogs but will chase little ones that seem more like prey so a house without little ones or cats would be best. She does better with slow introductions as she has some fear of the unknown. Whether it is a stranger or just an unknown dog... she lets them know she is unsure but warms up quickly to them. She will need a patient yet confident leader to show her she is safe and loved. She does great keeping all four on the floor and is doing well learning leash skills. She likes older kids and is trying to figure out how to play fetch. You may apply to adopt Cersi at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs. Her adoption fee is $200 and she is vaccinated, spayed, microchipped, and heartworm negative.
Adoption fee: $200

Abigail is a very sweet fox hound puppy that is easy going, loves to play with toys and other dogs as well as chew on nylon or antler bones. Abigail knows how to sit and is crate trained... but of course she prefers to be where her people are when they are home. Abi is house trained and doesn't chew on anything but her bones and toys. Abigail is very smart and has mastered the doggy door in record time or will bark when she has to go out to potty. She will also go right to her bed when told to. Abigail does not bark when the neighbor's dog barks but will bark and howl at animals in her yard like a true hound dog. She also will chase any squirrel, bunny, or critter which can be quite entertaining and a fence would be good for her. Abigail enjoys tormenting cats as well so a home without them is what's best. Being only a year old she is still learning to sit for the door and that food on the counter does not belong to her but is a work in progress. Abigail is excited to learn leash skills and is hoping you will be the one to teach her. Abigail is quite special and lovable. You may apply to adopt Abigail at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs. Her adoption fee is $100 and she is vaccinated, spayed, microchipped, and heartworm negative.
Adoption fee: $100
