Well hello there! I’m Ricky and I am an adorably sweet and playful 3 year old Chihuahua/Daschund mix that was recently found roaming the streets with my mom, Lucy, and sister, Ethel. I love playing and running around with all my foster siblings and I’m really picking up this training stuff quickly, but truth be told, my favorite thing to do is snuggle. Even though I’m a little guy, I give the best big bear hugs and am a true cuddle buddy at 12 lbs. 

I’m doing really well with manners training and leash walking, and I’m excited to continue learning in my forever home with you! I know I will make a great addition to your family – so hurry up and come meet me, or you’ll have some ‘splainin’ to do!

For more information on adopting or to complete an adoption application, please go to http://www.pawsinthecity.org/adopt.htm or email adoption@pawsinthecity.org.

Felix Update:

I picked Felix out and rescued him from Dallas Animal Services and Adoption Center last January. He immediately made himself at home. He is the most laid back and social animal I've ever met! He slept with me, followed me everywhere and became great buddies with my cats Gigi and Charley. I knew whoever met him would fall in love - and that is what happened when his adopter met him. While it was hard saying goodbye, he went to the perfect home. He has a kind and caring mom and a brother he can play with...ironically whose name is also Charlie! He is doing great and is already settled in his new home.

HAPPY TAIL UPDATE:

This is Abby, a probable border collie/pointer mix who came to us from Paws in the City in July 2009 at about one year of age. Of the three rescue dogs we have adopted, Abby is the only one who was in good physical condition when we got her and did not need a lot of help from the vet to start her new life.

Abby is a very special lady. Certainly she is easy to recognize with her stylish black and white coat, her blue and brown unmatched eyes, and the white point down her back. She settled in immediately and makes sure we get plenty of playtime and good, healthy walking daily. She is the most social dog ever, friendly to all dogs and people and especially patient with puppies and little children. She absolutely loves to go to a dog park or doggie day care occasionally and party with all the dogs there. She's our turbo-charged energy dog.

About a year ago she helped us round up another black and white border collie mix that had been abandoned near our home. Neighbors had been trying to catch the poor, starving little fellow for over a week and no one could get close to him. So we brought in Abby. Apparently she persuaded him that he had nothing to fear and after a couple of hours, he finally came to her. He was in terrible shape, but now after a year and a half and some serious vet attention, he is her devoted sidekick and playmate, and they even look a lot alike. Which all goes to show that a dog in need who finds a happy home can "play it forward" and make a happy ending for everyone.

Thank you so much for saving our sweet girl just for us and giving so many animals a chance for a happy, healthy new lease on life. They know.

Mission
Our mission is to save as many dogs and cats from being euthanized at the City of Dallas shelter as possible. Whether due to overcrowding and space being limited or because they have a treatable illness, we will take as many of the animals as we can into our foster program and find them loving forever homes.

Company Overview
Paws In The City is an all-volunteer nonprofit 501(c) 3 organization committed to ending the abuse, neglect and overpopulation of Dallas area dogs and cats. Our goal is that every adoptable dog and cat get a loving home. By providing money for spay/neuter and increasing the adoption rate, we take the first step in making Dallas a no kill city.
Paws In The City has spent many years rescuing and healing the abused, neglected and abandoned dogs and cats of our community. We have placed dogs and cats into our foster homes and then into adoptive homes. We also conduct offsite adoptions for the City of Dallas municipal animal shelter because they kill almost 30,000 animals..add the metroplex and it climbs to 200,000. Every dollar raised goes to foster, adoption, medical and spay/neuter programs.
