All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated and microchipped.  * If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, www.dpsrescue.com for an application. Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $650 Dolce is a 5 year old Corgi-Schipperke mix who weighs 10 lbs. She was a rescue from Korea. We partner with a group that rescues dogs from the meat markets, meat farms, and city shelters where very few dogs are ever saved. She was rescued from the shelter. Just like her namesake, this girl is super sweet. She’s gentle and incredibly mellow. She’s a low maintenance, chill girl who adores naps above all else. If you need a couch buddy or a home office companion, look no further. Dolce is your girl! I mean, look at that face! When Dolce first arrived in her foster home, she was understandably quite sleepy given her long journey. That said, she’s shown that she’s just a mellow dog! She spends much of the day sleeping on the bed, in the den on the floor, or in her foster parent’s lap when they’re working. When she’s sleeping on the bed or on the couch, she likes to have her space. But she’s also a velcro pup who will follow you from room to room. She’s especially happy to follow if there are treats involved! In her foster home, Dolce’s family are early risers and wake Dolce up for their first walk around 5 or 5:30 am. Thereafter, Dolce gets a walk every three hours until 8pm, when she goes to bed in a gated area downstairs. When she first arrived in her home, she was chowing down on her food twice a day, but now the food is just left out and she eats whenever she feels like, sometimes in the middle of the night. She is a very low energy, chill dog. Dolce is a lounger but will go out for walks. In fact, Dolce might benefit from shedding a few lbs, so exercise will be important for her! Once she gets going, she will happily walk. When she encounters dogs on walks, she often ignores them. She’s working on house training. Dolce is not a fan of the crate currently, so is housed at night and alone in a contained area. She is not a nuisance barker or digger. She doesn’t chew on inappropriate items, though she will occasionally scavenge from wastebaskets.  Dolce could join a dog or two in her new home or she could live by herself. She lived with a myriad of dogs in Korea, so she is well-versed in sharing her space and love with other dogs.  Dolce’s ideal home is one where people are around, but not one where there’s a lot of noise and excitement. She’s a chill, sweet companion.  Dolce could be an option for a variety of homes, from experienced to novice. If there are children, they need to be over the age of 10 unless the children are unusually quiet in the home... show less

All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated and microchipped.  * If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, www.dpsrescue.com for an application. Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $650 Fern is a 1 year old Dachshund-Beagle mix who weighs 8.7 lbs. She was a rescue from the shelter. She was listed as a stray. This sweet girl is a gem. With her loving, happy, sweet, and playful personality, she has all the best qualities in just the right amounts. She is the perfect pup to brighten up anyone’s day.   When Fern initially meets new people she tends to be a bit restless, but is always very loving towards everyone she meets. As she spends more time in her new environment she visibly relaxes, becoming much more confident and comfortable with her new people. Her fosters noticed that she became much more snuggly, enjoying napping on laps and spending time on the couch. She is also independent, often choosing to do her own thing if people aren’t around to entertain her. Once she gets comfortable, she generally slows down and becomes very chill and low maintenance.That being said, Fern is not a couch potato! Her personality is a wonderful balance of playfulness and cuddliness and she lets both aspects of who she is shine through. She now loves to play with little balls and bounces around the house chasing them, all the while with her cute little ears flopping around.   Fern has been working on some basic training with her foster. She is currently completely house trained, crate trained, and walks well on the leash. She is also not a chewer or digger so far. Her only area for improvement is her barking. While she doesn’t bark all the time, she does have some tendencies that are in the process of being addressed. She tends to bark at her reflection in the mirror and growls at cat videos on the TV :) She also sometimes barks for attention, which her fosters always correct with a firm “no”.   Fern has also established a daily routine with her foster: “Fern likes lazy mornings. She is in no rush to come out of her crate in the morning, sometimes deciding not to go downstairs with me at 8:00 but rather waiting for my husband to go down later around 9. She enjoys her breakfast and is happy to go on a walk right away or wait until later. She sleeps if we are busy and plays if we are willing to play. And she prefers to go to sleep by around 7 or 8, which is very early for our family, so she will often just go into another room to sleep on the couch, or come sleep on one of our laps until we take her up to bed. She goes into her crate with no fuss and sleeps through the night.”   Fern was in the shelter with other dogs and initially on intake was with other dogs in our rescue. While out and about walking she generally ignores other dogs. She doesn't have a need to address them and clearly doesn't show any signs of distress. Fern is a great option to live by herself as she currently is or join a home that has an independent dog.   Fern has a subluxing patella. Right now it doesn't there isn't anything to be addressed. Some dogs live their entire life with it (most) and never require surgery. Some dogs later on do. It's common in small dogs. (It's where the knee pops out when running and causes the dog to skip) However, more than anything else, Fern needs a family that will give her all the love and attention she deserves and desires.   Fern is an option for a home that has had less experience. If there are children they need to be over the age of 8.   show less

Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Margo is as sweet as they come. Exceptionally affectionate. Easygoing. Engaging. Purring machine. The list goes on and on. She follows her foster mom all over the house just so she can keep tabs on her. She also likes to be held in your arms like a baby. The vet says she is about 1 years old and in great health. She does have one cloudy eye that we think was damaged by someone not being kind to her. We have decided to leave the eye in place as its not bothering her and she seems to have some vision left in it.  She has been fostered with other kitties since coming into our rescue but seems to be selective as to which kitties she likes, so we think she would do best as the only kitty in the home. We have not had her around dogs yet but feel because of her temperament she would do fine with a cat savvy dog. All Margo needs is a chance at a great life with a home that will adore her. If you would love to welcome a lovely kitty into your life, apply to adopt Margo today! She has been spayed, tested negative for FIV/FeLV, vaccinated, dewormed, flea treatment applied and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $100. show less

Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Pepper is such a sweet 1 year old girl. She has been patiently waiting for her forever home to find her. We aren't sure why she's not getting as much attention as our other kitties because she is such a fabulous cat. All she wants is a home where she will be the center of attention and get spoiled rotten like she deserves. She has a quieter type demeanor, but has been really blossoming in her current foster home. She likes to bat her toy mice around and she is great at playing fetch. We think she could join a home with another cat or gentle cat savvy dog. She is vocal and will tell you exactly what she thinks about any given subject. She has a great appetite and perfect litterbox skills. She likes to sleep in bed at night with her foster parents and follows them around the house so she can be right with them at all times. She will make a great companion for someone looking to give her a second chance at life! If that's you, apply to adopt her today. Pepper has been spayed, tested negative for FIV/FeLV, vaccinated, dewormed, flea treatment applied and microchipped. Her adoption donation is $150. show less

Rufus

German Shepherd Dog

All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated and microchipped.  * If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, www.dpsrescue.com for an application. Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $650 Rufus is a 4 month old Shepherd mix who weighs 20-25lbs. We expect he will be in the 40-50lbs range when full grown. He was a rescue from Mexico. We work with an amazing group of people who are on the front lines rescuing dogs from some of the most tragic situations. He has been in the US for 3 weeks. Looking for a cuddly snuggle bug who will warm your lap and make you laugh with his mischievous antics? Rufus is an absolute sweetheart of a pup. After he has had time to warm up and develop trust, Rufus becomes a velcro dog who follows you from room to room and loves to settle down for pets whenever possible. When he first arrived in his original foster he was very nervous and scared. He wasn’t sure about coming out of his crate, but once he did, he snuggled with his foster mom all day. He tends to gravitate towards women at first. Within a day, Rufus came out of his shell and started to socialize and play with the two resident Golden Retrievers. He’s a huge fan of playing with other dogs. Humans are mostly for snuggles; other dogs are for play. He definitely finds his confidence with another dog in the home. Ideally for him, he'll go to a home that has another dog. We will consider those homes first for him. Rufus is still hesitant with new people and dogs; he will tend to stay near his foster people when guests are over. That said, if guests call him over, he will go and sit in their lap. He just can’t resist the affection! Though he’s shy at first, he warms up quickly, becoming happy and playful. Rufus’s whole day can be summarized as follows: eat, sleep, play, repeat. As soon as his foster parents wake up, he heads out to the bathroom, then has breakfast. After that, while his people are working, he loves to sleep near the desk or play in the office. In the evening, the foster parents play with Rufus and get some exercise. He’s an awesome mix of chill and active.  Rufus has been on a few very short walks. He’s become familiar with the leash and walks well. He’s making great progress on house training, which his new family will need to continue to reinforce, as he still has a few accidents. He needs to be taken out consistently. He’s crate trained, though he will voice some discontent if he’s in the crate and the foster family is in the house.  Since he is a puppy, Rufus needs to be supplied with appropriate chew toys or will chew on whatever is in front of him. He’s not a nuisance barker or digger. He’s a super sweet, loving dog who adores humans and just wants to please. This should make training easier!  We will only consider a home that has had a dog of their own in the last 3 years. This does not include roommate's dogs, fostering/petsitting or family pets that remained in the family home. If there are children they need to be over the age of 8. show less

Toy Story: Buzz

Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)

All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated and microchipped.  * If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, www.dpsrescue.com for an application. Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.The Toy Story litter is 11 weeks old. They currently weigh in the 5-6lbs range. We expect that they will be under 15lbs when full grown. They came into our rescue when they were approximately 2-3 weeks old and had to be bottle fed and taken care of individually. They survived and are thriving and now are ready to go to their new homes...They have been well socialized with dogs and kids and are options to join a home with cats as well. Buzz is a high energy, playful puppy who can’t wait for lots of fun and games with his new forever family!  He is a curious and adventurous explorer and always craves more playtime outside. His favorite game is tug-of-war, which he loves to play with his siblings and foster parents. He loves running around with his puppy siblings, yet is also very content creating his own fun. While he is very playful, he also loves to spend time cuddling and sleeping in your lap when playtime has tired him out.  Buzz and his siblings usually wake up around 7 am, when they receive their first meal; they also eat at 1 pm, 6 pm, and 11 pm. Buzz and his siblings are usually taken out to run around the back yard for 30 - 60 minutes before their lunch. They are huge nappers and like to take lots of naps throughout the day. Throughout the rest of the day, they run around playing with each other and their many toys. They are making good progress pee pad training, but this will need a lot more attention from their forever families. The puppies sleep through the night each night; however, they are not currently sleeping in a crate, just together in their larger pen. Every one of the dogs is incredibly well socialized with humans big and small. They currently live in a home with teenagers and older children.  We will only consider a home that has had a dog in the last 3 years. This does not include petsitting, a roommate's dog or a family pet that remains in the family home. If there are children they need to be over the age of 6. show less

Usain Bolt

Miniature Schnauzer

All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated and microchipped.  * If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, www.dpsrescue.com for an application. Our adoption fee is $400-$800. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $650 Usain Bolt is a 1 1/2 year old Miniature Schnauzer mix who weighs 18 lbs. He was an owner surrender to our rescue. Looking for a dog with the biggest heart? That’s Usain Bolt! He absolutely adores people, and he’s not afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve. He’s a cuddler, a kisser, and a snuggler! He’s also super energetic and looking for an active family to go on long walks, runs, hiking adventures, and to play fetch - or any other game. When you get home from exercise, expect a long cuddle session on the couch. He’s also looking for a person or family who is interested in teaching him manners and all he needs to be a good canine citizen.  Usain Bolt is a complete velcro dog! From the moment he arrived in his foster home, he started following his foster mom around and never quit! When you sit down, expect him to jump into your lap for cuddles. While his people are working, Usain Bolt sleeps by their feet or sits behind their chair. He even sits under his human foster sister’s chair during dinner!  If you’re looking for an activity buddy, Usain Bolt is your guy! He could play all day. He has energy to spare. He loves to fetch and go on long walks. He’d be a great candidate for hiking, and we suspect he’d be into frisbees. He’s looking for someone to continue to set boundaries for him to let him know when it’s time to play and when it’s time to chill.  In his foster home, Usain Bolt wakes up at about 7:30 am. He heads out for potty, then comes back inside for breakfast. Then it’s playtime! He spends most of the day going out for walks, playing, and snoozing until he has dinner at 5 pm. Finally, he heads off to bed in the crate at 9:30 pm and sleeps happily through the night.  Usain Bolt loves to play with other dogs, and he’s happy to amuse himself by running around the backyard. He gets along with other dogs, large and small, though he is learning to adapt to other dogs’ play styles and takes cues when he needs to give them a rest. On walks, when he greets other dogs, he is calm and gentle. He’s lived with children, ages 10 and 12, and done wonderfully. However, he’s learning not to jump, so he is better suited with older children and will need training. He’s excellent on leash.  Usain Bolt is perfectly crate-trained and is working on house training. He is definitely teething and will chew on everything and anything; this guy is a power chewer! Be prepared to supply him with plenty of teething toys and extra durable toys made for the strongest of chewers. He is not a nuisance barker, but he will bark at people passing by the window. He’s young enough that he can be trained out of this behavior if it’s undesirable. He will dig so if you don't want him to redecorate your yard, be aware. Usain Bolt is smart and a fast learner. He is working on “sit” and “come.”  Usain Bolt’s ideal person or family is a very active one who enjoys a velcro dog and is excited to embark on training right away. He’s a super snuggler and fun companion.  Usain Bolt is only an option for homes that have had a dog of their own as an adult. If there are any children in the home they need to be over the age of eight.  show less
