We would love to find a good home for him where he could be the alpha dog and guard a male. Maybe a ... (Read More)retired male. He is up to date on all shots, is about 62 pounds and very high energy. He needs someone who can spend some time with him. (Less)

Health: Spayed 

    Onyx is a wonderful dog and great companion! At 8 years old, this poor girl was dumped off at the pound by her owners, perhaps because they couldn't afford the medical care she needed. She was all fixed up at our vet and is doing great! Onyx would do best as the only pet, and no young children. She is a little shy upon first meetings but once she warms up she is as sweet as can be! Onyx is also gentle on the leash, doesn't pull at all, and is potty trained, and is 40 lbs. She doesn't like being in a crate - but she doesn't need to be in one at all. She would be great for a retired couple who wants a nice calm companion! Adoption Fee $100 - ... (Read More)Please submit an application at www.maggiesmissionrescue.org (Less)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Senior

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

    Diamond has been with our family since 3 months old. She grew up with our kids. She is very attached to the females in our family. In her older age she is anxious around little ones. She does get used to them but usually wants to go outside when little ones are in the house. I'm unsure about other animals. We had a bunny for a little while and it ran freely around the house and she never bothered it, but she gets protective, especially over her female owners towards other dogs. I have been single with kids for awhile and she helps us feel safe, not because she is vicious, but because people are intimidated by her bark and size. She weighs ... (Read More)about 70 pounds. She's very loving and for the most part a good girl. She just has a stubborn streak and wants to be sneaky to break rules when we are not home. Lol. Big personality and we love her a lot and praying to God for a good home for her. We are downsizing from a house to an apt and cannot take her with us to an apt. (Less)

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 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 gone through the ASPCA SAFER Assessment. 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. Heath/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)

    Teddy is a 5-6 month old, German shepherd mix. He has been neutered and his current on shots. Teddy will need an owner who has experience with this breed, someone who will be firm with him, and he would do best in a home with children over the age of 12. Teddy became very protective over the female head of the house and started to growl and snip at the husband and son in his possessive state. He is currently in our prison training program where they have trained him on house, crate, and leash training, as well as his basic commands. He is a sweet boy, very loving, and with a family who understands and is willing to work with him, he will be ... (Read More)a great family member.

However, we also do not hold dogs. They are ready to be adopted now. After a dog is adopted, we can then rescue another dog in need. Thank you for choosing a rescue dog. (Less)

    Jax is a sweet, lovable, obedient, potty trained dog that is great with our family, however he is beginning to show signs of aggression. I think it's his anxiety, but not sure. He has shown aggression toward humans and small pets. He would be great with someone who can afford to get him training. We have small children and dogs in the neighborhood and we cannot trust him. If nobody rescues him, we will surrender him to the pound.

    SKYLAR is a beautiful, well-behaved, shy Shepherd mix female who is looking for a new home where she can feel safe and loved. She is timid, so she does need a family who will be able to help her to become more socialized. We suspect she has had a litter of pups in the past, but she is now spayed. The vet estimates that she is around 2 years of age. She weighs 40 to 45 pounds. She tested negative for heartworm and she is current on vaccinations. She is black and tan, but her coat also has silver running through it. She is a lovely, sweet dog. If you live in another state, don't let that stand in your way. We will work to transport ...

He is super smart but the shelter does not have the staff to do this daily. He is overly playful and wants to put his mouth on your arm and hands but not to bite you. They are recommending a home with no children. Also not sure about other dogs. He can be picky about people also. ... (Read More)There has to be the perfect person for him somewhere!!! Nelson is very special to us here at the shelter. He's been here a very long time waiting for that special person to find him and accept him for who he is. If you have a fenced in yard and kiddie pool he will be extremely happy!!!! (Less)
