Armin
"I’m a rowdy young dog, still growing and maturing and overflowing with puppy energy. I love running and playing, and splashing in water, especially in summer, is the greatest! I need an owner who’s experienced in taking care of dogs like me – dogs with good hearts who love being busy all the time and want to learn how to be good boys. Just like most youngsters, I can throw quite a temper tantrum when I get frustrated, so I need to learn to channel my energy. I bet I’d be great at sports like agility or frisbee. Will you be the one who helps me?"
Ginger Spice
"I am always ready to go out and enjoy a nice long walk around the park to explore. I love spending time with other humans and becoming their friends! Let’s get to know each other, you’ll see that I am very calm, gentle, and rather smart. I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want. I want us to meet already so I can spice up your life!"
Martha
"Hi, I’m Martha! I ain’t no Martha Stewart, I can’t make you crafty things but I can probably make you smile! I’m a sweet gal and all I want is to be loved. I walk fairly well on a leash which makes me a great walking partner. Can’t you just imagine us going for a stroll in the park? Visit me and let’s make that happen! I’d love to meet you!"
Ozzy
"Hi, I’m Ozzy! So I may seem a little bashful at first but that’ll quickly go away. Spend a moment with me and you’ll soon see that I’m a playful and affectionate goofball! Let’s meet and find out how much fun we can have together!"
Dillon
"Hello there! You know what I adore? Stuffed animals, chatting, and playtime! I am an enthusiastic and sociable k9 who likes to goof around. I have a dynamic personality that may be too much for some pups to handle. That’s why I would like to meet any potential fur-siblings to see how well we get along. I’m a nice guy who would fit in best with an active family with older children. If you’re looking for a fun furry friend, then give me a chance!"
Pandora
"Hi, I’m Pandora! I enjoy playtime and being silly! I’m always joyful around people and love to have fun. If you’re looking for an adventurous dog who’s always ready to explore the city with you, then consider giving me a chance to take that position! I’ll be ready to greet you with a cheerful smile and a hug."
Viola
"Have I got a dog for you! That would be me, of course. I’m big, but I’ve been described as “pretty chill.” I’m good in crowds, and I love children, puppies and small dogs. And adult humans, of course. To my eternal shame, I’m afraid of big dogs. I guess I don’t recognize myself in the mirror. I’m good on the leash, and I love to go exploring. If you adopt me, I will make your life complete."
Traveler
"I’m not Traveler because I run away, but because I like to keep moving. I adore going for walks and I behave well on them – I just don’t like them to end! I do like sitting on your lap when I’m not walking, especially if you give me a treat or a soft toy to play with, and I’ll reward you with nice kisses. I like calm dogs and children too. In other words, I’m an all-around great dog, just perfect for you!"
Theodore
"The look I have in my photo is pretty much always on my face. I am always smiling and happy! I have a short tail so I am more of a wiggle butt than a tail wagger. I like to play and am pretty much guaranteed to keep you happy and laughing if I could join your family. I am also a gorgeous color, too, and it is all over my body. What a good boy I am!"
Henny
"I’m a very active boy and you won’t see me stay still for long. I like playing, and I enjoy dogs and kids over 12. I do have a problem with a disc in my back and that means I shouldn’t play rough or jump from high surfaces. But so far I haven’t had any trouble, and I plan to keep it that way. I would love to go home with you and be spoiled and loved."

Ralph
"I am an adorably cute guy loaded with tons of personality. I love to play and if you give me a toy, I will toss it in the air and have a good time all by myself. I try very hard to be polite but it is difficult to curb my enthusiam. I will gladly sit for a treat but may lose my cool when you give it to me. If you adopt me, I promise to keep you smiling and laughing."
Sadie
"Hello! I am the curious Sadie! I like to check out everything going on around me. I am gentle older lady and have excellent leash walking manners. I like to relax most of the day but just because I’m a senior doesn’t mean that I don’t know how to have fun! I love playtime and being outdoors. I like to play with toys and I really enjoy splashing around in the kiddie pool! All I want is to be around people and I would especially love to be around you. Please visit me so that I can show you how wonderful I am!"
Archie
"Hi, I’m Archie! I sometimes get a bit bashful in my kennel but once I’m out I feel better! I have excellent leash manners and will walk right by your side. I am looking for a loving home where I can lay back and relax with my person. If you have a furry friend for me, then I’d like to have a meet and greet with them first. Please visit me and consider giving me a chance to be your pal!"
Leticia
"Hi everyone! I enjoy showing everyone my smile! I enjoy being out and about on a nice day. I love going on walks to get to know other people around me. I keep getting told that I like to act goofy which of course I do, its fun!"
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."
Sashi Marie
"Don’t you think I’m beautiful? There is so much of me to love, and I have so much love to give! I’m on a weight-loss journey, as they like to say here, but even when I reach the end of it, I won’t have lost any of that love – it will just be concentrated in a smaller package. I am full of sweetness, and hugs are my specialty. Sniffing around while on walks is lots of fun. I’m not supposed to have treats, but I will sit on command anyway. Wouldn’t it be great to help me go from full-figured to petite?"
Hondo
"I am really shy and rather quiet. I prefer the quiet and calm more than anything. I feel much happier when I can be in a quiet area just relaxing and enjoying my surroundings especially in my play yard, feel much better when it’s just me and another human but of course, I would much rather be in a forever home of my own. I promise though if you give me a shot we will be the best of pals. I am, undergoing heartworm treatment, but the nice people at ADL promise that the heartworms will go away."
Aquafina
"I love to smile and really enjoy treats! I feel so happy when I receive a treat, makes me feel so loved. I will even sit for a treat if you ask me to sit. I can take a bit to warm up to you because I am rather shy but once you and I start hanging, you will see all my love!"
Katana
"I am an affectionate and playful goofball! I like to be around people and I prefer a home where I’m the only furbaby in the family. Sometimes my attention span is a little short when I’m outside for a walk because I like to check out all the action going on at ADL. I want to find an active person that I can go on adventures with and someone who will cherish me forever!"
Pippy
"Can you see me or am I hiding well in the bushes? No, I’m not in the least bit shy – I like to play, and I’m playing hide and seek! It’s OK if I’m not very good at it, because I’d rather be kissing you and cuddling with you than being alone behind a plant anyway. I love to play, but I love to love even more. My tail goes nonstop when I’m around people. I also think toys are great, and treats – yum! The best thing ever though would be a forever home, where I could get all those things."
