Urkel
"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!"

Flirty
"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!"

Corpus"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."

Maui
"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!"

Roxanne
"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!"

Monica
"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."

Aquafina
"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!"

Prometheus
"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!"
