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!"
