Adopt a Dog

Interested in our rescue dogs? The process of adopting a dog from us is simple.

  1. Browse our Adoptable Dogs list.
  2. If you see one you’re interested in, click the button to apply for that dog.
  3. We will process your application.
  4. After you are approved, we will schedule a time for you and the dog to meet each other!
  5. 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! If you don't see a dog that you are interested in right now, feel free to fill out an application and get pre-approved to reduce your wait time when you do see a dog you like.


Ridley

Hello, my name is Ridley. I wanted to hop on here and tell you a little about myself. I am a good pupper searching for a fam. My foster mom says I am really special, fren! I don’t mean to brag but I am pretty heckin smart and have already learned a bunch of human words like sit, shake, down and come. I also do great in a crate (ope that rhymed!) and if you put my favorite soft bed in there and give me one of those kong things with the peanut butter, that is pure joy for me! I like the belly rubs and I give kisses to say thank you! I love to play with balls! Haha bamboozled! I mean the ones you kick around outside. Don’t be obscene, fren! Oh and one thing about me is I need a 6 ft fence cause I do not like to be contained by lame boundaries! I am 5 years old and weigh 45 pounds, do not judge me, punk! My official breed is a doggo but some humans call me an American Staffordshire Terrier. Alrighty, that about wraps it up! Feel free to slide into my DMs to find out more or you can apply to adopt me at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs. My adoption fee is $200 and I am vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, and heartworm negative.

Adoption fee: $200

Charlie is a 10ish month lab/hound mix, who had a bit of an attitude when he was younger and takes a bit to warm up to be people.

Charlie had a skin condition where he had a spot removed on his head and is now all healed up and looks great! Charlie is a jokester, who is housebroken but you do have to keep an eye on him or he gets a little lazy. He is crate trained and loves a good schedule. Charlie will snuggle you like you have never been snuggled before. He would love a playful sibling to live with, as he loves loves LOVES to play. He likes some kids, and prefers them to be a little older. Charlie loves to lay on the couch, but also loves to chase bugs, moths, and squirrels. He adores the vet and they dote all over him. Charlie will steal your seat on the couch, follow you around the house and will request you stay outside with him as he does not like to be alone.

Dori

Dori is a 6 month old kitten that has ZERO clue she is disabled. She can do flights of stairs, climbs on couches and beds, and chase toys all over the house. She has a phenomenal personality that is sure to capture your heart in a nanosecond. She gets along well with cats and dogs and plays with them like she doesn't have a care in the world. She loves to cuddle on your lap and sleep on soft blankets. Dori even climbs to the top of cat trees like the best of them. She has a strong spirit and doesn't let anything get her down. Sadly, Dori came to us with back legs that simply do not work well. She has to use her claws to pull herself up on things....which when she wants attention can include your leg. She needs baths once or twice a week because she can't really clean herself in her back end very well. Dori can get little sores on her legs from dragging them around, so a home with no carpet is ideal for both her mobility and the accidents she has. Diapers are a possibility... but we haven't used them. She does try to use the litter box but we think she often doesn't know it is going to happen until it is too late so she just goes where she goes. She currently follows her people around inside and out. Because of this, she can dart out the door pretty quickly but doesn't go far. Surprisingly she is pretty fast and will impress you with her can-do attitude. We understand that it is going to take a special person to adopt an incontinent cat. However... we know we did the right thing by saving this sweet girl. She is SO FULL OF LIFE and is as happy as can be! She gives as much as she receives and the bond she creates makes it all worth while. She is a phenomenal cat and deserves a forever home as much as any other. You can apply to adopt Dori at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. Her adoption fee is $50 and she is vaccinated & spayed. If you have questions about her, feel free to reach out to us and we will answer any additional questions you may have.

Adoption fee: $50

King

King is a little dude with a big tude that still has a lot of energy. He is so spunky, it's hard to believe he is a senior. He even has good hearing and eyesight. He is happy to see people and other dogs and is not afraid of the big guys though he sometimes tries to be bossy to the little ones. He doesn't pay cats any attention. 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 has a tendency to 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 does well with baths and being brushed. He also 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. When he says it is okay, 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. Sometimes he becomes a little too big for his britches and needs to be reminded he isn't in charge and being snappy isn't acceptable. 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

Boo Radley

Boo Radley is a total lap dog. His sight may be gone... but he has no trouble finding his people to be close to them. He's a quiet guy that doesn't really bother anyone or anything and gets along great with other animals. Boo doesn't need much... just a couple of insulin shots a day for his diabetes (which he takes very well) and a warm place to rest his head. He is mostly potty trained but his diabetes does make him pee a lot. However, he wears a belly band like a champ and is doing much better at keeping his crate dry - he even goes all night long now! He's not big on walks or toys but does enjoy a good chewy. Boo is a low maintenance, 9 pound pomeranian that thrives on routine and would do best in a home where someone is home a lot to let him out to potty. Kids might be too much for him on a regular basis as he's approximate 9 years old and blind. He's a gentleman that can be a bit shy at first but warm up nicely. He's sure to keep you company and not only warm your lap, but also your heart. You can apply for Boo Radley at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. His adoption fee is $175 and he is vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and heartworm negative.

Rubi

Rubi is the sweetest little lady you’ll ever meet. We guess Rubi to be about 11 years old and she is looking for someone to settle down with, but don’t let her age fool you – she’s an avid squeaky toy lover! Rubi is potty trained except for the occasional accident, but hey that just comes with age for all of us. So far, she is non-destructive, so doesn’t need crated, but she definitely loves to go with her people on whatever trip they’re going on. Rubi is a good travel buddy because she loves all people she meets! Rubi is sometimes slow to warm up to other dogs and doesn’t like them in her face, but with correction quickly gets over this and gets along great with her five foster siblings. Rubi is just looking for a sweet home to return the love she has to give. If you think Rubi may be a good fit for your home, you can submit an application for her at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt . Rubi’s adopt fee is $150.

Champ

Welcome, ladies and gentlemen to the main event in the division of the "Middle-Aged but Still Acts Like a Puppy Even Though He is 8". We are coming to you from PPD in beautiful Dayton, Ohio. In this rescue, weighing in at 17 pounds, in the black and tan fur from Montgomery County, Ohio, please welcome Champ "Houdini" Canine!! *crowd goes wild* Champ has spent some years in the ring but you'd never know it by looking at him. He loves to run and jump. Champ's motto is "Work very little, Play Very Hard". This boy would really like to have a secure, fenced in yard to explore. Champ is always in training and has asked to have a lot of walks - cardio, bro. There is more to Champ than working towards being a titlist in his category, Champ would love to break out into the obedience arts. If you have some coaching experience, or are willing to learn the skills to be a great coach, Champ can only become a better guy and he'll be by your side learning his heart out. We've seen his skills - they aren't bad. Champ said he struggles most with being tied down. We explained to Champ that he is not tied down - it's a leash to guide him on walks and keep him safe. He's skeptical but open to the idea. After a great day of exploring and playing ("it's training for greatness" - okay, Champ) Champ likes to unwind in a warm lap. He'd like to binge watch some dog movies or vintage Lassie episodes. At bed time you don't have to ask twice - Champ will hop in and under the covers to warm up the blankets while you're doing you evening routine. As you both drift off into sweet slumber, Champ will whisper, "Thank you, I love you." No, he won't because he can't talk BUT you'll feel how much he cherishes being right by your side. Champ wouldn't mind a training partner however he doesn't care to share his toys or food. The Champ should also stay separate from his training partner until everyone is done with meal-time. Champ has not been know to be destructive when out but he doesn't like to be alone. He can escape most attempts to contain him (that's the "Houdini" part) - crates, loose or disrepaired fences, doors. He does need to go out regularly to maintain his physique and your dry floors. Be the Champion for Champ "Houdini" Canine! Apply today at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. Champ is priceless but his adoption fee is $175. #champ #adopt #rescue #minpin #minpinmix #houdini #cardiobro #greatness #workverylittleplayveryhard #futurechampion

Tony

Tony came to us a really sad pup when his owner ended up in a senior home due to dementia. He was lost without his person and moped and cried a lot. Sweet Tony is learning life is still good and there are other people out there that love him. He doesn't want them to leave his sight because he's afraid they won't come back. Tony is good with cats, dogs and kids. He is not quite house trained, but he is getting better each day, and wears his belly bands like a champ! He just wants someone who is home a lot that will make him feel safe and loved. We believe Tony to be 9 years old and still full of life. He recently had a dental so his teeth are looking fine! He still cries sometimes because he misses his past life but finds comfort in cuddles. Do you have a lap he can find comfort on? We believe Tony to be a Pomeranian Chihuahua mix and is vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and heartworm negative. His adoption fee is $175 and you can apply to adopt him at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt.

Lucinda

Lucinda is extremely friendly and wants to meet "all the people". She gets along well with other dogs. This sweet girl knows her manners and not only does she lay quietly when someone is eating... she takes treats ever so gently. Lucinda is a snuggler that likes to be close to her people and is pretty chill most of the time while inside. She loves to play, and running around the yard is a great was to get her energy out while outside. She is also very well house trained. Lucinda is a smart cookie that can also be a bit stubborn at times and is still learning to come when she is called. She can use continued training on learning to walk nicely on a loose leash. She is great at staying behind a gate and respecting an open door while her people are there but accidentally leave them open and she may take full advantage of the chance to go visit "all the people". She isn't the biggest fan of her crate but is generally okay once she is in one. She does best in a crate though when her people aren't home as she may decide to chew something up just to tell you she is unhappy you didn't take her with you. Lucinda is Miss Congeniality and thrives on interactions with people and dogs alike. Though she hasn't been around kids in her foster home... we believe she would do well with them. A home where someone is home often or has another dog to keep her company would be ideal. We believe Lucinda is a 2 year old lab mix. She came to us in a family way and gave birth to two wonderful puppies. Now it is her turn to be adopted and she is excited to meet a family that will love her for eternity. Lucinda's adoption fee is $225 and you may apply to adopt her at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. She is vaccinated, spayed, microchipped, and heartworm negative.

Adoption fee: $225
