    Free to a good home, our bestfriend Duke. Duke is a 10 year old well trained german shepard. Sadly we must find him a new home as he has shown signs of aggression to our new born son.

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adult Women Only 
Personality: Very High Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    My mother owned this dog and she passed away in May. We have taken him in but is a problem for us as we have 3 other dogs and he is too aggressive for them. He is a very smart and loyal dog and would make someone a good watch dog. He will become attached to one person and will try to protect them from people or other dogs. Would make a good dog for a single woman, who has no other pets. Needs lots of exercise and should go to someone who is familiar with the breed.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Gimli is a very happy, bouncy puppy, who loves to play. He is interested in his surroundings and loves to investigate. He loves toys.

If you have questions or would like to meet the dog featured on this page, please call (216) 664-3476 to speak to an adoption representative at CITY DOGS Cleveland. Or email citydogs@city.cleveland.oh.us About Our Shelter... CITY DOGS Cleveland is a program of Cleveland Animal Care & Control (CACC), located at 2690 W. 7th St. Cleveland, OH 44113. Public hours are Monday through Saturday from 10am-3pm, and Sunday ... (Read More)12-2pm. The CITY DOGS mission is to increase adoptions from the City Kennel by changing the image of the pit bulls who make up the majority of the kennel population, by preparing all adoptable dogs in the kennel for lives in loving homes and by creating as many opportunities as possible for the public to meet and get to know our dogs for the terrific pets they are meant to be. Our Adoption Process... Here's a little about how things work: All of the CITY DOGS posted for adoption are available for direct adoption from the kennel, unless noted otherwise. A handful of dogs are only available for rescue pull, which can be for a variety of reasons. You can either stop in during our open hours to meet a dog, or set up a meet and greet with your dog, which allows us to get the dog out of his/her cage for some exercise before you arrive. To set up a meet and greet, please email us at citydogs@city.cleveland.oh.us. About Our Dogs: All available dogs have been assessed. This assessment is a snapshot of who the dog is at that given time. Our dogs are strays and we cannot make any guarantees with regard to behavior, temperament or health of any City Dog. We do not know what kind of home environment they were living in (i.e. with kids, other dogs or other cats), nor do we know if they are house trained. Everything we know about them is based on volunteer and staff observations. It is very hard to tell with certainty whether or not a dog will be good with kids, cats or another dog. If you have kids in the home or another dog, we do require that they be present for a meet and greet with the dog you are considering for adoption. Health/Vaccinations: Dogs that are adopted directly from the kennel need to go to your personal vet within a week or so of leaving the kennel. They do have their DHPP, Rabies and Bordetella vaccinations, are dewormed once and have a microchip. In addition, unfortunately many of the dogs do get kennel cough. This is not something that is contagious to people at all, but dogs that do have it will need to be on an antibiotic. (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Not Good with Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Are you looking for a unique dog that will not only keep you on your toes but also keep you laughing? Well then Sasha is for you! Not only is she unique looking but her moves and abilities are almost cat-like. She is a young girl, probably no more than two years old, and so full of love and life. She is good with other dogs after proper introductions; cats are still up for debate. Sasha is kennel trained and 90% house trained. Her previous owner let her roam the neighborhood then abandoned her when he thought she was pregnant. Luckily a neighbor took pity on her and got her off the streets. Unfortunately the neighbor couldn't keep and ... (Read More)surrendered her to a shelter. When the shelter believed her to be pregnant, she was scheduled to be euthanized. Fate stepped in and Paw Patrol saved her beautiful soul. Needless to say, she was not pregnant. Sasha is heartworm negative, spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and dewormed. Sasha is very active and agile so needs a fenced yard with lots of toys and room to run and play. She hasn't been tested with kids but her foster family thinks she will be ok with older kids that will play with her. She has learned so many manners since coming to us. Sasha sits and stays on command, waits to eat until told to do so, and goes to her kennel when told it is time for bed or her foster family needs to go out. As you can see, she loves to cuddle with her foster brother or chill out in the recliner. Also, after a long day of puppy playing, Sasha loves to cuddle with her favorite humans. Of all the things she can do, her cuddles are the best thing of all. Sasha's adoption fee is $175.All of our animals are vaccinated, micro-chipped and spayed/neutered before being adopted. Our adoption process begins by filling out an application at our website http://pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs/. Your application will be reviewed. Then your vet and personal references will be contacted. Approved applicants will be contacted for a meet-n-greet in the order applications are received. Then there is a home visit and then the adoption. The amount of time the adoption process takes varies. We are an all volunteer rescue. Please understand we are all doing our rescue work outside of our jobs, families, and other commitments. It takes time to contact references, to schedule meet-n-greets, home checks & adoptions that work with your schedule, as well as, ours. Please be patient with us during this process. We always want to place our dogs in a good home as quickly as we can. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-28-00241Jimmy Frank (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hello. My name is Jimmy Frank. I'm about 2 years old and I weigh about 40 lbs. I was seized by the pound, along with 15 other dogs, including my mom, Sally and my dad, Scooby, due to extreme neglect. Although my parents lived in the house, my 12 siblings ( my littermates and from other litters) and I were not so lucky. We lived outside. We were contained in electric wire pens with inadequate shelter. Only a few of us had water (from the rain) to drink and none of us had food available. We had garbage strewn through our pens. Many of the neighbors said that we were badly abused by our owner. We were beat and had rocks thrown at us when we ... (Read More)would bark. We were all very unsocialized, shy and we proved to be very hard to catch during the seizure. Once we were all captured and knew we were safe, we have transformed in to happy, loving and very sweet dogs. I can still be shy at times, but I just need socialization and a little reassurance. Because I lived outside, I will still need to be trained, housebroken and crate trained. I am already a great boy, gaining tons of confidence and learning exactly how to be a dog. With the right family, I am going to be a truly wonderful dog. If you're looking for a sweet dog to add to your family, please consider adopting me. **UPDATE** Jimmy Frank was adopted for a short time but had to be returned due to not being good with the small children in the home. He will need a new family without small children. Our adoption fee is $120.00. The adoption fee must be paid in CASH. We are unable to accept personal checks or credit/debit cards for adoption fees. ALL dogs/puppies adopted from our shelter will receive their parvo distemper vaccine, bordetella vaccine, rabies vaccine (if aged at 12 weeks or older), be dewormed with a 3 day course of panacur dewormer, be microchipped, receive their current Ohio dog license and will be spayed or neutered. ALL DOGS/PUPPIES WILL BE SPAYED OR NEUTERED unless a health issue prohibits the surgery from being performed. Not all dogs posted for adoption are spayed/ neutered yet. If you're driving a long distance to adopt, please verify that the vetting process has been completed and dog you're interested in adopting is still available for adoption. The above mentioned vetting is all included in your adoption fee. The adoption fee and what is included in the adoption fee is NON-NEGOTIABLE. Adoptions MUST be done at the pound and in person as there is paperwork to fill out and an adoption contract that must be signed by the adopter. This means you must be willing to travel to our shelter to adopt. IF the dog you're interested in adopting has medical conditions or injuries which require medical treatment, we ask that you help with the medical bills so we can continue to help the dogs coming in who need additional vet care. We are a county run shelter, therefore we cannot control our intake or the health or behavior of the dogs that come in to our shelter. Although we try our hardest to place all of our adoptable dogs, there are certain circumstances in which any dog in our care could be euthanized at any time and without further notice (IE: sudden untreatable medical condition or injury, temperament or behavioral problems which may not be apparent when the dog first arrives, lack or space, etc.), therefore all dogs at our shelter should be considered urgent. The adoption of a more highly adoptable dog will mean more time for the less adoptable dog in the kennel next to him! Shelter hours are: Monday-Friday: 8 am- 4 pm Saturday: 9 am- 12 pm. The pound is CLOSED to the public on Sunday. There is nobody in the office on Saturday and Sunday, so therefore we are unable to answer or return phone calls over the weekend. Can't adopt a dog? We would love to have more volunteers who are able to spend time with our dogs! The dogs LOVE going for walks and the socialization and exercise helps make the dogs more adoptable.

Animal ID: 17-04-27-00054BARNEY (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    'BARNEY' is the sweetest, gentlest, best disposition dog one could every meet. Darn close to 'perfect'. This handsome, 3-4 yr old, 50 lb. German Shepherd mix was rescued from a very high kill pound where he was on the 'euth list' with no hope. He smiles, wags his tail, gently sidles up to you for attention, and as you can see in the pictures, loves to ride as co-pilot in the car. Barney doesn't have a mean bone in his body & loves other dogs; especially those of an equally gentle & sweetly silly nature. Barney is a treasure and would be a delightful companion for a single adult of any age. Barney could also be a terrific family dog in a ... (Read More)home that is not too loud & boisterous. If you are interested in seeing video of Barney, please email the rescue at luvablefurryfriendsrescue@gmail.com and we will be happy to send a few to you. Barney is 'heart worm positive' and undergoing treatment for this highly & successfully treatable condition. Due to this treatment Barney is not presently neutered but will be once done with HW fast kill treatment and cleared to be neutered by Veterinarian. Barney has been de-wormed, is current on vaccinations, on monthly heart worm preventative, crate-trained, house-trained and micro-chipped. All of our rescued dogs have been on a nutritional regime which includes high quality food and supplements (ex., probiotics; vitamins, etc). This is done to bolster their immune systems and overall health; the result benefits their adoptive family with a pooch who has a lustrous coat, bright shiny eyes, and happy and healthy disposition.

Animal ID: 403309Chuckles (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Chuckles - AVAIL! :) M, 8 y/o, 78 lbs Mastiff / Shepherd mix Neutered Chuckles respects strong but fair leadership so he'd be best with either a man or a woman who can give him that leadership. In return he is very loyal, protective, and soft-hearted to those he trusts, all about belly rubs, back scratches, hugs, and kisses! Chuckles knows the commands: sit, lay down, stay, come, and heel. He's a thick, goofy boy, short & stout and has a lot of pep and vitality. He loves to wander the backyard, go on daily mile-long walks, and even keeps up on jogs! But he seeks indoor companionship the most. He is crate trained and can be ... (Read More)crated when you're not home or overnight. He would be best in a one-on-one relationship but can be co-located with other dogs as well with proper supervision. Not recommended for homes with cats/small animals. SPECIAL OFFER: Thank you to AlphA and Omega Dog Training who has graciously provided in-home obedience training for Chuckles! They will provide 1 hour of training to whomever adopts Chuckles to show you how to lead with the verbal and visual commands that Chuckles has learned to follow. HISTORY: Chuckles ended up at the kill-shelter after a life of neglect. He was abused with collars so embedded in his neck that they had to be removed and treated by a vet. We showed him humans can be kind and gentle. When we rescued Chuckles he was drastically underweight, heartworm positive, had dental issues, and was certain to be destroyed. We had him examined and treated by our hospital veterinarians and our excellent fosters have been providing great care, nutrition, and interaction daily.

Rescue Me ID: 16-10-03-00435Leon (male)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Blind 

    Leon-5-6 year old, blind rottie/shepherd mix Very special boy-don't let his blindness discourage you because he has no clue he is special and different. Above smart and intelligient, he learns and navigates new surroundings quickly. Completely house trained, walks delicately and carefully till he learns his way, good with dogs that ignore him and leave him alone-ie, senior dogs. 100 + pounds of love and affection. Loves attenton but does have sensitive spots so no young children. His tail, areas on his back end seem to cause him stress, and he loves hugs but you have give him time to get to this point. Completely vetted, house broken, has ... (Read More)never, and never will be crated, quiet, and loves meal time and treat time. Leon is a live and let live type furkid. Probably more deserving of a loving home than any of our rescues. He does not like being picked up-as in going bye bye-so you need a van or suv to guide him in via a leash. And he is strong as can be on a leash so if you plan to walk him, he needs some work. Please don't overlook this big, beautiful boy. He is so special and so incredibly sweet. Will love and protect you forever. Looking for the perfect and extraordinary home for Leon. (Less)

German Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered 

    Duke is a very sweet purebred German Shepherd who will turn 4 this August. He follows commands and loves to be around people. He is great with kids and other dogs. Unfortunately, Duke is in love with our neighbor's horse and will not stay within the property despite the invisible fence. Prior to him finding the horses he stayed within it for 2 years. We hate to see him go but can't afford to replace the boarded horses. He's not viscous but runs them.
