Summer makes some new friends

There's no doubt this adoptable dog gets along great with children. Summer soaks up the attention during Preschool Clubhouse this morning, sponsored by Rockwall Parks and Recreation.

Maizy needs a little help and a lot of love

You won't find any dog cuter or sweeter than Maizy. She's very outgoing and very lovable. There's just one catch: She's heartworm-positive. But her treatment will be paid for when you adopt her. Don't let her illness deter you. Maizy is a wonderful dog. She's your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of April 18, 2011.

Speckles is unique! Well, sort of.

Speckles may look unique, but he's really not. Corgi/heeler mixes are common in cattle ranches, where the dogs' low profile assists in nipping at the heels of the herd during round-up. These dogs are highly intelligent and active, so Speckles needs something to do to keep him busy. Once you earn his trust, Speckles will be a loyal friend for life. He's your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of April 11, 2011.

Let's get out there!

Are you ready for some action? Like any hound dog, Bojangles likes to give his nose a workout. That means daily walks around the neighborhood are a necessity to keep him interested and happy. Besides, he's far too intelligent to stay cooped up in a backyard all day. If you're looking for a handsome walking partner, Bojangles is raring to go. He's your Rockwall Adoptable Shelter Pet for the week of April 4, 2011.
