APPLYING FOR A DOG | HELPFUL TIPS!

  • A separate adoption application is required for each dog because what we are seeking in a forever home varies each time. If you’re interested in more than one dog, you must submit separate applications for each.
  • We only accept applications for dogs currently available for adoption (listed on the Available Dogs page). 
  • You must live within 350mi of Dallas/Fort Worth to adopt one of our dogs.
  • You must be at least 21 years old to adopt one of our dogs.
  • You must be able to pickup the dog within 3 days of final application approval.
  • The adopting family must complete their own adoption application. We do not accept applications for “gifts” or “surprise” adoptions.
  • Thoroughly read the dog’s adoption bio and only apply if your home/family is a perfect fit. We work closely with our fosters and vets to best understand a dog’s personality, likes/dislikes, suggested ideal environment, and any ongoing medical care required. These requirements drive our selection process.
  • Be detailed and thorough in your responses on the application. This helps paint the best picture about what life would be like for the pup.
  • Due to the large # of applications we receive, we are unable to send a personalized response to each. If you are selected, you will be notified. If your application is not selected, you will receive an automatic response within 3 weeks. Thank you for your patience and interest in our rescue doodles!
