4 lovable pups ready to adopt now in Dallas

Interested in adopting a pet β€” or just gazing at some cuddly canines? There are dozens of darling dogs up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Dallas.

Baloo, American Staffordshire terrier and pit bull terrier mix

Baloo is an adorable male American Staffordshire terrier and pit bull terrier mix currently residing at Bull Luvable Paws and Chi Wawas Rescue.

Baloo is friendly as can be β€” he gets along great with other dogs and cats. Rest assured: He's mastered his house-training etiquette. He is already neutered and vaccinated, too.

Here's what Baloo's friends at Bull Luvable Paws and Chi Wawas Rescue think of him:

Baloo is a skinny ball of smooth fur and really craves attention. He is reluctantly curious, and will crawl when he's unsure about entering new places. He would do best with a family who is home more often than not.
