Voldebork
"Where do I begin to explain myself? I’m a strong, active, loving dog with a kind heart who gets along with most dogs and people. I was found on a college campus, obviously a stray but soaking up all the attention I could get. A kind lady took me home and tried to find my owner but had no luck. With a house full of family and dogs, she couldn’t keep me though everyone there had fallen in love with me, so they brought me here. She left a letter all about me for the lucky family that adopts me. I hope it says good things! I have a feeling it does, because I’ve seen people cry when they read it. Take me home and you can read it too."
Rosie
"Hi everyone, take a look at my lovable face! Don’t you just want to hug me and squeeze me, sounds like something we should make happen? I am an incredibly playful gal that loves to go out for good long walks to explore the world around me but also spend time with my human pals. I have lots of curiosity and want to learn more and more about my surroundings. We should meet up so we can go out for a walk!"
Charles
"Hi, I’m Charles! I’ll probably try to charm you with my playful personality and my friendly attitude. I enjoy going for walks and playing with toys but I will have to take it easy due to a healing fracture in my leg. I’m a good boy who gets along with everyone including dogs too. I’d love a home where I can lounge around with my best friend. I hope you give me a chance to meet you! Maybe we can become best friends?"
Chowder
"Oh hi there! I’m the handsome Chowder! You know what I really enjoy? Going outside for walks! I love to sniff, sniff, sniff everything while I’m out exploring. Oh and I absolutely love getting all the attention! Let’s meet soon so that you can see what a friendly cool dude I am."
Thor
"Sometimes people are afraid of Rotties, but look at this smile! Do I look fearsome? Treats are the only thing that need to be afraid of me, because I will gobble them up! But I do sit on command first. I am somewhat nervous around people I haven’t gotten to know because I haven’t been an inside dog, but an experienced owner can help me overcome that. I have all the makings of a Good Boy, and that’s what I want to be. Can you help?"
Sweet Tart
"Hey, nice to meet you! My name is Sweet Tart and I certainly live up to my name. I’m a very sweet and affectionate young girl. I love to have fun! I’m looking for an active person who’ll happily take me on adventures with them. I am happy to sit for treats and I’m sure I can learn more if you’d like to teach me. Why wait any longer to meet me? Come on over as soon as you can and let’s go for a walk together!"
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!"
Zara
"I’m a nice girl and like most hounds, I’m an explorer who loves to go for walks. I will curiously check out the whole area while I’m out for a walk. I’m very people-friendly and will make a great companion to my forever person. I’d prefer to be the only dog in my future home so that I can have all the attention on me and shower you with kisses! Let’s hang out so that we can get to know each other better and possibly become best friends!"
Imogen
"Hi, I’m Imogen! I am an oldie but goodie. But don’t let my age fool you! I still got some spunk left in me especially when I see yummy treats. So you may be wondering why I have an ear missing. Well, that’s how I came to ADL and we’re not really sure how it happened but the nice hospital staff here helped clean up my ears. I am more than ready to find my forever person! I would love to go on a nice walk with you and then relax at home on a big bed next to you. Doesn’t that sound like a delightful idea? Come meet me and see how loving and great I am!"

Rudolph
"Hello, I am Rudolph! Aren’t I a handsome boy? I’m also a nice boy but sometimes I’m a little wary around new people so please take your time with me. Before you know it, you’ll soon gain my trust and be seeing plenty of smiles from me! I enjoy the outdoors and love to go for walks. I like to sit by the side of people I know. I am looking forward to finding someone who’ll give me the chance be their best friend. Come by and meet me today!"
Titan
"My ears and, uh, more personal body parts barely clear the ground, but that doesn’t make me any less of a Titan. We bassets are big dogs packed into a long, low shape and we are well-loved for it. I love walks, howling as only a basset can do, getting belly rubs and just looking around. I’m a sweet old man who has a few old-man conditions like glaucoma and arthritis, but they are under control with medicines. I would love a home where I can lounge around when I want to and get lots of love. I promise, you can pet my ears whenever you want!"
Kadee Bear
"Hi everyone, I’m very happy that you are interested in my profile. I am a very calm, smart girl that loves to receive lots of affection and hugs. I really enjoy spending time with my human friends. All I need now is a forever home where I will get all the love from my forever family. Come and ask for me so we can meet!"
Jada
"I am a pretty girl with a big smile. When I get a chance to go out, I am all about sniffing and exploring everywhere. I need to get that out of my system, then I will be ready for calmer things such as my celebrity photo shoot. I can be a little bit nervous sometimes, but other times you will hardly notice it. I would like to be the celebrity in your home!"
Joel
"Hi, I’m Joel! Some of us dogs just can’t get into hanging out in our kennels because we find kennels boring! I’d much rather be outside where all the action is! Give me a chance to meet you outside and you’ll see what a happy boy I am! I walk well on a leash and will smile for you. Sometimes I’m on alert for squirrels and will scope out my surroundings. I can be charming and I love attention, especially when attention involves me receiving treats! I love treats and I learn very quickly. Once I get to know you, I might turn into a lap dog. I have to admit that I may get excitable during playtime, so it would be best that I go to a home with older children. I also get along great with dogs but I’d rather hang out with the calm ones. I’m ready to find my home soon! Please give me a chance to go on a stroll in the dog park with you!"
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!"
Genghis Khan
"I am strong and young and eager to go. I am not sure my name is right for me because I am a sweetie who just loves attention and am good with children as well as big people. I have to admit, though, that I consider other dogs to be the enemy that arouses my not so nice side. So I need a home where I can be the only dog. I promise you won’t regret it if you adopt me."
Lafayette
"It’s hot outside and my favorite thing about that is playing in water to keep cool! I LOVE water! I also really like toys and tend to wear them out fairly quickly. I’m playful, silly and cheerful! I can’t wait to find my best friend who’ll take me out on adventures, especially ones that involve me splashing around in water. Let’s meet and find out if we can be forever pals!"
Big Boy
"They don’t call me Big Boy for no reason! I have a big body with a big heart! I am a charming boy who just wants attention and TREATS! Yum! I’ll be ready to sit for a tasty treat and even shake your hand. I love food so much that I would prefer to be left alone with my food as I chow down on it. I do not share with anyone! I enjoy being around people but I prefer to go to a home with no children. I need someone strong enough to handle my strength on the leash because sometimes I forget how strong I can be. Come by and meet me! I’ll be ready to lean on you and love you! And I hope that you’ll love me right back. I can’t wait to meet you!"
Amy
"I follow where my nose leads me because I love smelling things. But offer me a treat and I’ll sit for it and then gobble it up, because I also love treats! Even though I was left out on the streets because I have arthritis and my owner didn’t want to deal with it, I love and trust people. Just look at my face – you can see it’s full of love. I take medicine and feel absolutely fine and frisky. We could be great friends and have a wonderful life together, so let’s get together and talk about it, OK?"
