Frappe
“Hi, I’m Frappe! I’m pretty shy and timid. I want to be adopted but I’m very observant. Someday maybe someday a family could take me some and care for me.”

James
"James is a royal name and being a mastiff means I come from royal blood. I’m very stoic and kingly unless you show me a treat. I love treats so much I unleash my goofy side to get you to give them to me. I’m possessive of my food and will guard it so it’s best I go home with a family with children 12 year and up. So if you’re looking for a king who can get down and be goofy then look no further than me!"

Dmitri
"I may not be a famous chemist who devised the periodic table but I’m pretty special. I’m a Hurricane Harvey dog. That means that the Animal Defense League traveled to the shelter I was in looking for a home before the storm and brought me back to find a home in San Antonio. I’ve got to say I feel like an SA dog and now I just need my forever home to come find me!"

Henny
"I’m a very active boy and you won’t see me stay still for long. I like playing, and I enjoy dogs and kids over 12. I do have a problem with a disc in my back and that means I shouldn’t play rough or jump from high surfaces. But so far I haven’t had any trouble, and I plan to keep it that way. I would love to go home with you and be spoiled and loved."

Lily
"I’m going to wiggle it out when I meet you. I’m so happy that my body can’t stop wiggling and my tail can’t stop wagging. I really enjoy meeting new people. I just burst with enthusiasm. I’ll make my new family so happy because I’m just so joyful. I’m warning you that my enthusiasm is contagious. Oops, too late, I already infected you. Now the only cure is to come take me home today!"

Ikey
“I know I look a little silly with this cone on my head. Let’s just call it my lion’s mane (kinda looks like that, right) because it’s not coming off anytime soon. I have this little quirk where I over- groom my fur leaving bald patches. There are multiple reasons why I could be doing this so it’s just a matter of time before staff figures me out. Just like it’s only a matter of time before my forever home finds me. Hopefully they will be a quirky as I am!”

Rawhide
"Giddy-up, Rawhide and strap in for a wild ride! I have so much energy built up in me that I go a little crazy when I get out of my kennel. I jump as high as high as my leash will let me, run as fast as you let me and just cause some mayhem. All in good fun, of course! One thing for sure you’ll never get bored when you’re with me. So if you feel like your life has been a little dull and you’re looking for some adventure then come let me brighten your world today!"

Mandy
"I need you today. Please come and give, without taking. I’m looking for my Manilow to write songs about me and love me! I am a little shy, but a kind, patient person could really bring me out of my shell. If you want someone to sing love songs to, I’m the perfect dog for you!"
