She has very limited vision and will only go to a home with a physically fenced yard. This girl ...

Beagle Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Jasmin is 7 years old. Her birthday is January 19th. She is a 63 pound Beagle mix. She's spayed and her vaccinations are up to date. She won't need rabies shots for another two years. She is shy and timid at first, but after she gets adjusted to her surroundings she is a whole lot of fun! Jasmin has the energy of a puppy. She enjoys running fast, retrieving toys, and playing tug-of-war. She loves bacon treats, stuffed animals (and ripping the stuffing out of them), walking, and car rides. Her favorite activity of all'|..chasing rabbits (or cats)! That's when the Beagle part of her comes out. Jasmin has a great temperament and loves ... (Read More)children. She loves to kiss and cuddle. She's also very nurturing. She cleans the faces of children and checks their pockets for snacks. She'll also sniff out pain, cuts and bruises on your body and try to 'fix' them by licking it. Jasmin is a sweet girl with the cutest brown eyes and floppy ears. She is not a guard dog at all. Though she will bark, expect her to run from danger. Picking her up is impossible because she won't allow you to. Usually, she'll roll over onto her back. She will get along with other dogs if properly introduced. Jasmin is kennel trained, and will voluntarily go to her 'room'. She responds to the following commands: Sit Lay down Roll over Give me five Speak (she tries hard to bark on command) Room Go Walk/Leash Outstide Snack (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-04-12-00125Jack (male)

Australian Cattle Dog Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    Jack is a well trained, very lovable pup whose idea of a great day is hiking in the woods, playing in the backyard, then snuggling for the rest of the night. Jack is completely house trained and has energy for days. Jack's biggest challenge is that he is extremely dog aggressive and needs to be secluded from children. If you are an older person or couple (30 and older) looking for a great house dog and able to keep him out of stressful situations, he is the dog for you! We wish more than anything that we could keep him, but where we are in the city surrounded by dogs is not a good situation for Jack. Please help us find a great home for him!

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, my name is Picasso. I came here all the way from Georgia looking for my forever home. I am about 8 months old, weigh about 35 pounds and I have been neutered, microchipped and I am up to date on all of my shots. Right now I am spending time with 2 other dogs. 1 of them is a little older than me and we love to play. We play tug-a-war a lot and sometimes we just wrestle. I love to run and run, my temp mom thinks I would make a great Frisbee dog (whatever that is). I have learned 'sit' and 'down' and I walk pretty good on a leash. Mom says that I learn real quick. I also live with 2 cats, though I try to chase them, but mom is working on ... (Read More)that. I have to warn you, I can jump so I would need a 4 foot high fence. Baths I am not to sure about, so far I have gotten 1 up here in Delaware, but I think, in time, I will get used to it. I am being crate trained and do well with it. I have a double heart on my left side, look for it in the pictures. (Less)

Mastiff Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Needs to be Spayed 

    Piper is a 3 year old female mastiff mix who was surrendered to our veterinary clinic due to having an open pyometra. Her family was unable to afford her surgery, and were going to euthanize.

My hospital manager has given us permission to stabilize her overnight, but she needs to be taken somewhere else for spay and re-homing. Please let me know if your organization will be able to help out, and feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you for your time in advance, and I look forward to ...

Personality: High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I have had her since a she was a puppy. Unfortunately, she is not good with other my other dogs. I had to re-home one dog because of her, and she recently just attacked one of my other dogs. She is great with people, extremely loyal and sweet. She loves attention. So much so, she is jealous of other dogs. I can't have her in my home any more, and plan to surrender her to the SPCA on the 6th of April. I really don't want to do that, but don't know what else to do. She would be perfect for an experienced dog owner, or an owner without other dogs. Also great with kids, (she was raised around my children and is as submissive to them as ...

But then...it was....Sadie had a 'c' section and because she only had one puppy, her owner decided she was no longer productive enough to keep around. He gave her puppy to another of his many breeding Moms to nurse and told Sadie to hit the road. Lucky for her, he at least called rescue to take her. So after 5 years of making babies ...Sadie came to DAAWGs. She's super sweet, but has been a ... (Read More)little out of sorts since she doesn't understand where her newborn baby went. Her foster Mom gives her lots of kisses and snuggles though... and takes her for rides cause Sadie loves to ride!

Beagle Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Here is one year old Bentley. He isn't normally smiling like this but it's such a funny picture that we wanted to share it. Bentley is being fostered in Delaware and was pulled from a high kill shelter by BCAA of NJ. Applications should be submitted on their web site: http://www.bcaaofnj.org/ There are some extra pictures there, too. Bentley is about 28 pounds and looks like a beagle except he's an unusual and beautiful tan color. He's been going to doggie daycare (and loves it!) and the daycare owner suggested he might have some Vizsla in him. He's definitely Velcro and more sensitive (eager to please - needs a gentle correction) than a ... (Read More)normal beagle. In fact, he thinks he's a lap dog! He's housebroken, great in the car and gets along well with both dogs and cats. Med-high energy, but once he gets a bit of exercise, he turns into a total couch potato. He'd probably do best in a home with kids over 10 since he needs to be told to take treats gently and likes to play a little rough - especially tug. We think he'd do well in a basic obedience class because he really wants to please and he's very food motivated. This sweet boy deserves a forever home where his family will give him as much affection as possible. He'll take it all! (Less)

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive, Fearful/Anxious 

    Harry is somewhat bipolar; but we understand that this is typical of Jacks. He is very protective of the person in our family who he has adopted (out of 7 choices) and he defends that person's room adamantly. But when he's not in that space, he's very sweet, endearing, even cuddly. He's housebroken and walks beautifully on a leash. His original owner died, the next family had small children and that didn't work out. He was at the SPCA next and we tried to save him, but he was dog number 4 for us and it's just too much commotion in the house. He's nervous prior and during storms. He has a storm shirt though and does okay with it. We ... (Read More)all really love Harry Potter, but he's just not happy here and we want to find him someone who can exercise him regularly and enjoy his company as a soul/sole companion. (Less)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Holly is a very sweet little girl who got lost and whose family never came to claim her from the shelter. She has a wonderful temperament and a bounce in her step. She loves everyone including other dogs and cats. She would probably do fine with children as long as they know how to treat her respectfully. All she wants is a family to love her and let her spend her time with them. Holly is housetrained and will walk on a leash. She would rather be with her people than in a crate but will tolerate a crate if she must. Holly weighs just 12 pounds. She is just waiting for her new family to come and adopt her. If you think that is you, please ... (Read More)email or call about sweet little Holly. (Less) (Less)

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Delilah was an owner surrender. The family no longer wanted her and we knew because she was deaf she was less adoptable (if at all) in the SPCA. Delilah is a 3 yr old mixed breed. She is medium sized at 38 lbs (which is actually pretty small to us!) She is very sweet! She is okay with the cat here and the other dogs we currently have. She has had some special training (because she is deaf) which we can show to her new forever family. You wouldn't even know she was deaf unless we told you! She is very smart and easy to train. She loves to go for walks and rides in the car. She loves to run around and play with the other dogs but she also ... (Read More)loves to lay in your lap. She is a perfect medium energy level. We do require that you have a secure fence because she is deaf. This girl will be hard for us to let go. She is definitely a favorite here and we might even be a little extra picky about her forever home because she is such a gem! (Less)

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Ollie is a little Brindle mixed breed puppy. He is about 1yr old and about 42lbs. He is a little bundle of energy and loves to play with his toys. He constantly brings different toys to show to us and play with. He likes to play fetch and go on walks. He is very well behaved for his young age. He did great with housebreaking and he whines to let you know he needs to go out. He loves when our volunteers come over to visit him. He also loves to get his back scratched and if you won't scratch it for him he has all kinds of tricks to scratch it himself like walking under your chair or under your legs while you are sitting down. He is good with ... (Read More)the cat here. He is good with most dogs with proper introductions. Some dogs don't like his puppy energy but others really love it and want to play with him. He will continue to learn to socialize better. Ollie would be good in almost any home. Because he had a rough start in life we would like him to have a home without small children. He can still be a little fearful with quick movements or a lot of yelling. He would be great with kids over 9 or 10 who understand that he needs people to be gentle with him and assure him that no one will ever hit or kick him again! He also loves to look out the window and let you know when he sees someone! Ollie is a super sweet dog (Less)

He very quickly came back to health at his foster home and we got to meet the sweet boy hiding behind the skinny stray : ) He is the sweetest dog you will ever meet! He LOVES everyone. He is very smart and easy to train. He knows all of his basic commands very well. He also walks on a leash like a pro! He seems to be too interested in the kitties at his foster home so he should have a home where someone is willing to teach him that kitties are our friends or where he will not be around kitties. He has not been ... (Read More)socialized well with different dogs. We are working on this with him now. If he were adopted tomorrow he would have to be the only dog in the house or with a family who was willing to do very slow introductions to their other dogs over weeks or months. Hank was picked up with his doggy friend who he was with as a stray so we know he can get along with other dogs. We will continue to work with him to help him socialize better with other dogs. We don't expect Hank to be around very long. He is beautiful and sooooo sweet! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Delaware
    Dogs can make good pets in Delaware if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Low-Cost Delaware Spay & Neuter Clinics
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. There are hundreds of dog breeds with extremely varied characteristics and sizes, from the tiniest teacup Chihuahua to the hugest Mastiff, but all of these breeds make up just one species Canis lupus familiaris and can theoretically breed with one another (although there can be practical and health related constraints.) The dog was the earliest domesticated animal. Dogs are red-green colorblind.
