"Hi, I’m Phillip! I’m a friendly, calm, and gentle dog. I have great leash walking skills and enjoy taking strolls alongside people. Will you be one of those people I can go on a stroll with? Maybe we can become best buds!"

Buddy
"The first thing you’ll notice about me when we meet would be that I very much love to play and run. You’ll be able to see me wiggling my butt with excitement because I’m out and about with some new human pals. We need to hang out and go out for long walks around the city and all the parks. We will become the best of buddies!"

Gizzie
"Hi there! I’m an incredibly sweet and loving girl that wants nothing more than your love. I sometimes have playful bursts of energy because I always want to have fun, especially when people are around! I also enjoy relaxing and sleeping for hours.  I’m a smart gal too! I know how to sit, shake, and do so much more. When you visit me, I may be barking at you in my kennel, but please ask to take me out so you can see my true personality shine! And according to staff around here, I make the most adorable funny faces. How about you come by and I’ll show you? I’m sure I’ll make you smile!"

Fitz
"Would you like to meet a young man who would really like to meet you? No matter who or what you are, I will like you since being friendly is my trademark. I say who or what because I like children and also most dogs I meet, so a big and varied family would be fine with me. I am cool with being cuddly, but I love to chase balls and would be a great walking partner. What are you waiting for?"

Pedro
"I may not be a youngster, but you wouldn’t know by the way I act. Get me some root touch-up for the gray around my muzzle and I could pass for a 2-year-old frisking around with my playmates. But I’m better-mannered than most youngsters, and I know sit-stay-paw. I get along well with most dogs, though I prefer calm canines. I may play like a youngster, but I don’t have the endurance of one! Take me home and we can have a wonderful life together."

Olive
"Hi, I’m Olive! Can you believe I’ve been at ADL for over a year? Crazy, right! I know my person is out there somewhere! Please tell me it could possibly be you! A little about me…I can be a bit shy around new people and places so I may need some time to adjust to my new home. Please don’t let that worry you because before you know it, I am as playful as can be! I love running, exploring, and enjoying my time outdoors. You might catch me rolling around in the grass with a squeaky toy in my mouth because I LOVE to play with toys! I also enjoy a good game of fetch and have impressive skills at catching tennis balls in midair. I’m very treat motivated! I’ll sit for treats and happily stare at you with puppy dog eyes as I wait for the treat. I would fit in best in a home with older considerate children and although I’d prefer to be the only furbaby, I might consider a dog-sibling too. So if you have any potential dog-siblings for me, then let’s set up a meet-and-greet! Overall, I’m a friendly and playful gal who just needs a special person who’ll love me no matter what. I may have a very serious expression when you see me at ADL but there is a silly side to me that you must see! Please give me a chance to show you how fun I can be!"
