"I am a very good boy that walks very well on a leash and I am very patient during obedience training! I have lots of energy and I'll need someone that can keep up with me. Enough chatting, let's go for a walk!"
"Hey there! My name is Kya. I am a sweet girl that would make the best adventure buddy! I am a very quick learner and respond well to clicker training. So far I have learned to sit, lay, roll over, and shake! I do really great on walks and enjoy a good snuggled nap after. I really like having friends and love playing with other fellow pups! I look forward to meeting you someday!"
"Hi there! I am a young gal and so I find it very hard to be still for long. Toys and treats are my thing, and having a home and family to share them with. There is a song about Nancy with the laughing face so I gave a big smile for you. If you meet me it will be like in the song. You won't be able to resist me and if you don't see me you will miss me. It will be vice versa, I am sure."
"I appear relaxed and calm in my photo but I have to admit I was very nervous about the whole thing and got a bit jumpy when confronted with scarey things like bags of treats and the camera. I did sit and I looked at the person holding my leash but when you are new somewhere there is a lot to get used to. I promise if you take me home I will get used to you and your home and all that will go away. You have to admit I am quite a handsome boy."
"I am an energetic young man who is ready for adventure! My breed is known for being spunky and smart. At around 4 months, I still have lots of growing to do. I will be 50+ pounds when I'm fully grown! I love water and playing with my toys. Stop by today to meet me. Can't wait!"
"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!"

"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!”
"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!"
"Look at how handsome I am! I’m a young guy, and I think there’s still puppy in me with how energetic I am. I can’t help but feel so much joy when I’m out for a walk. So if you take me for a walk, be ready to hold on tight! I’m sure that I can eventually learn to be more calm on the leash. Right now, I’m just so happy to be out of my kennel and it shows. I will fit in great with an active family and will bring so much joy to a home. If you’re looking for an outgoing furry friend, then please visit me!"
"Hi, I’m Navy! I’m a playful gal who loves to have a jolly good time! My zippy personality will fit in perfectly with someone with an active lifestyle! I will be sure to bring lots of cheer and joy to any home. I would like to meet any possible fur-siblings to see how well we get along. If you’re looking for a fun sidekick, then please give me a chance to fill that position!"
"Guten tag! My name is Germany! I am a very sweet and playful young man. I’m an active guy too! I believe I would make a fantastic running buddy! I enjoy going out on adventures and daily walks. I hope my next adventure can be with you!"
"Howdy! I’m a very energetic girl who loves walks on the beach and attention. I love to smell everything on sight because I’m a very curious pup. If you think you’re the one for me, then why wait any longer, come meet me ASAP!"
"Hello! I am a happy-go-lucky kind of guy that loves to meet new people. I like to be on the go all the time, as I still have some puppy energy to me. I am the perfect walking/running buddy! I'll need someone that has the time to give me all of the physical and mental stimulation to keep me nice and well mannered. Please stop by and take me for a walk today!"
"Would you like to meet a really nice guy who is also a good boy? I walk well on a leash and am old enough to have learned good manners in other ways. I’m curious and love to look around when I am out and about. I am so eager to meet people that sometimes a creep up a bit on the chain link of my run. You can’t blame me for having enthusiasm, can you? I’m a happy guy but I sure will be even happier when I have a home of my own. If it has dogs and cats, that will be probably be okay with me, too."
"I'm not just any dog. I have a special talent. I know how to make silly faces! The face you see here isn't silly, it's just happy. I wanted to show you my nicest smile so you would pick me to take home and love. I'm a spunky guy with lots of energy. I love to play and get very excited when I see someone coming to play with me. I hope I will see you coming to play soon."
"Hi, I’m Walker! I’m told my name fits me perfectly cause boy do I LOVE to go on walks and not just play in a backyard type of deal. Actually, leash me up and let’s go explore! I’m a charming boy who enjoys a good chest and neck scratch. I would love to get to know you! How about you meet me at the Paul Jolly and ask the staff to take me out for a walk? I would LOVE that!"
