Wallace (Bowser) was found wandering the street near the home of his rescuers on a Saturday night. They made every attempt to find his owners and have come to believe that he was abandoned to the streets given his age and other issues – sad indeed!!!
Wallace is a handsome guy but due to his age (he is around 9 or 10), he is suffering from some geriatric health related problems. He is a 62.5 pound Shar Pei – Chinese mix. He is heartworm positive but because his heart and lungs appeared to be okay during his wellness exam, the vet determined that it might be best to let it go untreated. Wallace has other age related issues but he has a great personality and his rescuers are trying to find him a home where he can live out the remainder of his life in peace and comfort – this aging fellow definitely deserves such an act of kindness from someone with a big heart and willing to go the extra mile for him.
Wallace is not at the shelter but in a foster home. If you would like to meet him, please contact us at
to make an appointment.
The Adoption Donation is being waived for this guy!!
Wallace could really use some Guardian Angel support while his rescuers find him a home - will you help?

Max is a sweet and affectionate dog who loves to be petted and loves to cuddle. He is a good listener, very alert, especially when the conversation is accompanied by a good neck rub.
He does not seem interested in chewing things around the house, according to his current foster mom. He just likes to hang out with his people.
He loves playing ball; his catching skills aren’t great, but he has proved to be a quick learner.
He knows how to shake hands, knows “where’s your ball?” and is about half-trained to sit. He thinks little dogs are a novelty but barks at big dogs. He needs further training to not bark at strange people and big dogs.
Max is 7 years old, neutered, weighs 85 pounds and needs to gain 10 more. He has a very handsome, classic German Shepherd appearance. He is housebroken.
He needs lots of exercise and is always ready for some fun. He loves the outdoors and likes to hang outdoors.
Max was found behind a business near Bachman Lake before Thanksgiving having been abandoned and starving. The business people rescued him, fed him and petted him. He stayed even though he could have run anywhere around Dallas. He was hit by a car during the time he was abandoned; his right rear leg was broken. On Jan. 2, the vet said it was healing properly by itself. He holds that leg in the air when he stands but puts weight on it to run, walk and jump around. He walks with a limp and probably always will.
He is a strong dog, never flinches with rough cuddling and silly play. He brought a wonderful atmosphere of calm to the house with his strong personality.
He needs a new home with a big back yard or a neighborhood for long walks. He will be a wonderful dog for someone.
If you can provide a temporary or permanent home for Max, contact the shelter through
. He was rescued by one of our volunteers and is in a foster home, so we need to set an appointment if you wish to meet him.
Come and join DKC/HSDC at Craft and Growler next Tuesday 1/28. Our shelter will receive $1 for each beer sold between 5-8pm, so come and enjoy a beer and help our homeless companion animals at the same time!
