If you have interest in Dallas or another of our sweeties please fill out the adoption application.
Please note: we do not have a physical facility where the dogs are housed; they are cared for in our wonderful foster network. It is our assumption that, once approved, a potential family will meet the dog(s) in the foster setting where they are feeling safe and loved.
Dallas - in Maine
Newest update: October 2016
Dallas is a 6 year old, 45 lb aussie/lab/beagle mix who needs a kid-free home. His family has 5 of them and he is too nervous, but this is worsening with a new baby in the home. Dallas’ owner feels that his ideal home would be with adults only, on the quieter side without a lot of small people visiting.
Dallas loves to play. He will play ball or fetch for as long as you will play with him! He loves walks and might be a good running partner. He is very fast! He likes to explore but is not reliable on recall so he needs to be on a leash or long lead. He would LOVE a large fenced-in yard in a more rural setting where other dogs and people are not going by his fence all the time.
Dallas responds very well to good leadership and learned quickly as a young dog with his basic commands. He is proficient with sit, lay down, paw, stay, and speak. He is very food and praise-motivated. He doesn’t use a crate at home and he does not like it at all so he hasn’t used one in years.
Dallas LOVES car rides but does not like being alone. He has some mild separation anxiety but does not destroy things. Dallas wants to be with his adult humans and if he is outside without them he will bark.
Dallas lives with three cats but has not lived with dogs. He can be unpredictable in his reaction to other dogs so he will most likely need to be an “only child”. He is sweet and loving, and will sit with his grown-ups, being patted, snuggled and wanting to be wherever they are.
One of our volunteers recently met Dallas and had a great visit. He showed her that he knows some commands, rolled over for belly rubs, and was affectionate and cuddly. His tail didn’t stop wagging; he did chase the cats when she was there.
