20 Adoptable Dogs at the Animal Defense League That Will Make Your Family Complete

The Animal Defense League of Texas, a no-kill shelter located 11300 Nacogdoches Road, has several dogs that are currently looking for a forever home. Check out the dogs that are currently available and just try saying no to adopting one of these cuties. It's basically impossible.

And as an extra treat, adoption fees will be waived on select pups. Be sure to check and see if your soon-to-be family member qualifies for the promotion.

Monica
"Oh hello there! I am Miss Monica! I’m a happy gal with a BIG heart! I know how to sit for treats and have excellent leash manners. If you decide to not give me attention for a moment, I’ll probably paw at you to redirect your attention back on me! I’m a silly girl like that! I love to make friends! Come by and meet me so that we can be friends too!”

"Hello, hello, hello, hello! I’m Missy, the best gal you will ever meet. I am so excited to get to meet you and I will be even more excited if I get to see you in person near me!

Can’t wait till we hang around the doggie park and become a forever family."

Kismet
"I am a delightful young man. I am obedient and walk well on a leash, plus I know several commands. I can sit, shake, and lay down but maybe not all at once. I love treats so it would be easy peasy to train me some more. The best thing of all about me, though, is I have the biggest smile in the whole place. I like to play rough so please ask the staff for more information about how I would be with kids and other animals. Don’t you think it is fate that we should meet?”

Josie
"Well how do you do, I am Josie, and let me start off by saying that if you got a treat I’ll take a sit just for the said treat. Now, I got to say, I do love attention and running around outside to explore! When we meet, if you take me out to the doggie park and start handing me treats well let’s say you and I will be a match!”

Lyric
"I’m Lyric, that’s right the one and only Lyric. I am such a spontaneous gal that enjoys an open area where I can run and jump. You see that smile, that is the smile I will have once I get to meet you because I love to be with humans and become best pals!”

Pixie
“I am living proof that you can indeed teach an old – or let’s say middle-aged – dog new tricks. I’m 7, and I’m learning to be quiet. I used to be noisy, but now every time I’m told to be quiet and I am, I get a treat! What could be better than that? Well, getting a forever home would be, for sure. I’m a nice, friendly girl and would make a wonderful companion, as long as I’m an only dog.”

"Hi there! My name is Herby the Love Bug! Go ahead and tell me how much you love me, I’m all ears! They’re pretty big but I think it makes me look adorable! Don’t you think so too? I’m a charming, playful, goofy, and super curious little guy! I would love to go on adventures with you!"

Samiyah
“Everyone at ADL keeps saying I’m friendly which makes me smile so so much my tail just wags like crazy when I get called adorable and cute! It’s such a great fuzzy feeling. I have an idea, how about we meet and enjoy a nice long walk. I would love to have a forever family to give me these compliments!”

Dave
"Dave is the name and sit for the treat is the game. The rules are simple,  you show me a treat and if I sit down then you hand me over a treat! I love the game, there’s nothing better! Hopefully, you and I can play this game and we become best pals! Better yet we become a forever family and I can have a forever home. That will be the best!"
