Dexter
"Hi, I’m Dexter! You want to play?!  I usually wiggle and smile when I see people. That’s why I’m smiling in my photos! I was happy to have my photo taken and be around people. Come by and see how excited I get when you meet me! I’ll be ready to greet you with a smile!"

Helga
"Hello all, my name is Helga. I have difficulty walking so most of the time I’d rather just be relaxing indoors enjoying the warmth of the room. However, I do enjoy going out for a walk, but please take it slow with me. I like to take my time and enjoy the breeze. Come to ADL so we can spend time together!"

Lady
"Not only am I a pretty lady, but I’m also a cuddle bug! I enjoy cuddling, leaning up against legs, and going for walks. I LOVE treats and I know how to sit for them too! I can be a tiny bit shy at first when meeting new people but I’m a sweet lady who will be sweet towards everyone I meet. I know that I’ll make a wonderful furbaby to a loving family, I just wish I could find that family soon!"

Gregory
"Hi, I’m Gregory! I am a ball of fun! I love to play with every dog I meet and I smile for everyone. I will smother you in kisses and cuddles. It is recommended that I go to a home with no children. I love the attention! Please meet me and let’s go for a walk."

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!"

Corpus"Some of us just need someone to let us know that everything will be okay. I’m one of those dogs. I’m a shy girl and I’m especially camera shy. I’m hoping that I can find someone who will be willing to let me warm up to them and be their buddy. Is their room in your heart for a shy sweet dog like me? I hope so! Please give me a chance to be your friend."

Mellie
"I could just as easily be named Mellow as Mellie. Yes, I am Mellow Mellie, an adorable chiweenie who would love nothing better than to snuggle into some warm blankets at your house and love you forever. I’m 8 years old, which isn’t as old as my face looks – that’s just my coloring, which in the dachshund world is known as dapple. That means kind of a white or light tan background with brown speckles. I’m a laid-back girl who is good on the leash, but I can be a bit of a scamp, too. My shirt says “I ate Santa’s cookies” – and I bet I would!"

Smiley
"I’m kind of a gentle giant. I’m not a giant like a mastiff – I just weigh in the 60s. And I’m not totally gentle – I have lots of energy and can be pretty frisky, but I love giving kisses and smiles. But that’s the vibe I give when you see this big body and sweet demeanor. I pull on the leash a bit when I’m excited but usually I’m good on walks. I sit for a treat, and man, do I love treats! Toys are high on the list too. You can’t help falling in love with me when you meet me. At least I hope you can’t, because I really, really want a forever home. Please?"

Bruiser
"Hi, I’m Bruiser! I enjoy going for walks and exploring the outdoors. I’ve recently learned that I also enjoy riding in cars too. I’ve been told that I’m sweet, and I’m sure you’ll agree after you meet me. I’m the type of dog that’ll lean on you and give you kisses on your cheek!"

Flirty
"Hi! I am originally from Houston, TX but because of Hurricane Harvey I was brought down to this great city. I am ready to find my forever home! I’m a cute little girl who loves to go for walks. I love people so so much and I feel much more comfortable with kids than other animals. Please take me home and spoil me you will not regret it!"
