"Am I a nerdy dog? Well, I’m not sure about nerdy but I’m sometimes clumsy. I can be a goofball and like to make people laugh. I love playtime! I love squeaky toys! And I will love you forever if you give me the chance to be your best friend! Come to ADL and let’s meet!"
"Hi! I am originally from Houston, TX but because of Hurricane Harvey I was brought down to this great city. I am ready to find my forever home! I’m a cute little girl who loves to go for walks. I love people so so much and I feel much more comfortable with kids than other animals. Please take me home and spoil me you will not regret it!"
"Some of us just need someone to let us know that everything will be okay. I’m one of those dogs. I’m a shy girl and I’m especially camera shy. I’m hoping that I can find someone who will be willing to let me warm up to them and be their buddy. Is their room in your heart for a shy sweet dog like me? I hope so! Please give me a chance to be your friend."
"Hello hello, Maui is my name, and I got to say it is great that you’re reading about me. I am as friendly as can be and as welcoming as can be! I love hugs but then again who doesn’t love snuggly hugs. It will be the best time ever to have you come over so we can meet and get to know each other!"
"I enjoy good long walks, I keep getting told that I’m a very calm good dog which makes me just so so happy! I do rather be just you and I, other dogs make me a little uncomfortable and would much rather enjoy my time alone with you! Come down to ADL so we can get to know each other!"
"Hi, I’m Monica! I’m always so eager to leave my kennel because I love going on adventures. I enjoy romping around in the grass, sniffing everything, and rolling over on my back for belly rubs. I might do silly things like tug on the leash but I promise that I’m not trying to pull you around! I’m just a silly and energy packed girl who sometimes forgets how strong I can be. You know what I love? Treats! I’m learning to sit for treats too! When we meet, you will see the scars on my back. We’re not really sure how they got there. The humans around here believe it’s from a thermal burn. Thankfully the nice people here at ADL treated my burns so that they can heal quickly. I call these scars my beauty markings. They’re proof that I’m a brave girl and won’t let the past bring me down! I’m look forward to a bright future with a special person that I can call my best friend. I hope that best friend can be you."
"I love to smile and really enjoy treats! I feel so happy when I receive a treat, makes me feel so loved. I will even sit for a treat if you ask me to sit. I can take a bit to warm up to you because I am rather shy but once you and I start hanging, you will see all my love!"
"I’m named after a Greek Titan who stole fire from Mount Olympus and gave it to mankind. All I’m trying to give mankind is my love and adoration. I may steal your heart but take a look at this face and tell me it’s not worth the risk? Be a risk taker and come adopt me today, I dare you!"
"I am a good strong young lady who would love to get to know you better! I love making new human friends and going out to explore. An energetic gal like myself would fit best with someone who enjoys being active. Come get to know me better and let’s go for a good long walk!"
"I’m a strong playful young lady that enjoys to explore and play with others. I feel much more comfortable becoming friends with other humans and would love to find a best friend! I enjoy treats so much, I’d do anything for a one! If you stick around and get to know me long enough, you’ll see that I have a rather goofy, funny, and outgoing personality that you will definitely fall in love with. How about we meet soon and become best pals!"

"Hi, I’m Frito! I love trotting around outside so much that I’ll have the biggest grin on my face. My snaggletooth sticks out often and people always comment on how cute it is. I’ll gladly take that compliment! The people at ADL took me on a trip to this place called North Park Subaru and I had so much fun! I was greeting everyone and showing off my teeth. I enjoyed the car ride too! I”m considered an “oldie but goodie” which I think is funny because I sure don’t feel like an oldie! However, I still have plenty of goodie in me! I am ready to spread some cheer to a family that I can call my own. Could your family possibly be the one for me? Let’s find out, come out and meet me soon!"
"Hello all, my name is Helga. I have difficulty walking so most of the time I’d rather just be relaxing indoors enjoying the warmth of the room. However, I do enjoy going out for a walk, but please take it slow with me. I like to take my time and enjoy the breeze. Come to ADL so we can spend time together!"
"I’m a fun and lovable bouncy meatball! I’m always so wiggly around people because I get excited and crave attention! I’d fit in great with a family with kiddos but as for other dogs, I’d prefer to meet future dog siblings before we decide to make it official. Well, what are you waiting for? Visit me and let’s be goofy together!"
Eskimo Joe
"Hi, I’m Eskimo Joe! No, ADL did not start adopting out foxes. I may look like a fox but I’m all dog and not to be confused with the Doge the dog meme either. Although, I must admit, I make excellent Doge impressions! Truthfully, I don’t care much for the fame that comes with being an internet meme, what I do care about is finding someone who’ll take care of me and love me forever! I’m a playful and affectionate little guy with a curly tail. I like to romp around and play. I’ll gladly let people carry me and hold me close. I can be picky with who my doggy friends are and would like to meet any potential doggy siblings before we become family. Let’s meet and go for a walk. I’ll be happy to show my best Doge impression!"
"I don’t want to hear no Lip about it, but I’m the best dog here! I’m one cool dude. Before I came to the Animal Defense League I injured my leg and I have a fracture that is healing well. I’ve got a lot to offer someone so you should come get me today before someone else does."
"Hi, I’m Dexter! You want to play?! I usually wiggle and smile when I see people. That’s why I’m smiling in my photos! I was happy to have my photo taken and be around people. Come by and see how excited I get when you meet me! I’ll be ready to greet you with a smile!"
"Can you see me or am I hiding well in the bushes? No, I’m not in the least bit shy – I like to play, and I’m playing hide and seek! It’s OK if I’m not very good at it, because I’d rather be kissing you and cuddling with you than being alone behind a plant anyway. I love to play, but I love to love even more. My tail goes nonstop when I’m around people. I also think toys are great, and treats – yum! The best thing ever though would be a forever home, where I could get all those things."
"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."
"When you come to my kennel, I’ll happily run to the door and greet you with wags and enthusiasm, overflowing with happiness and friendliness. But when staff takes me out to meet you, you’ll hardly recognize the shy, reluctant dog at the end of the leash. I don’t remember what happened before I came here, but I’m just so scared that it takes a long time for me to trust people. I don’t have an ounce of meanness in me – I just need someone with patience to wait for me to be ready to share my love. When that time comes, I enjoy cuddling and I’m as sweet as can be. If you have the time, the rewards are great – I promise!"
"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!"
