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!"

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!"

Lynette
"Can I be your dog? Please? I really, really want to! I’m so excited! Can you tell? I’m hyper, but I’m a good girl. I love kids, and grownups, and food, and toys, and I know the sit command. What I don’t seem to love is other dogs, so it would be best for me to be the only dog, so you could spoil me rotten and I wouldn’t have any canine competition. We could have such fun together! Come soon, please!"

Meatball"I’m a fun and lovable bouncy meatball! I’m always so wiggly around people because I get excited and crave attention! I’d fit in great with a family with kiddos but as for other dogs, I’d prefer to meet future dog siblings before we decide to make it official. Well, what are you waiting for? Visit me and let’s be goofy together!"

Shelly"Hello everyone, I’m Shelly, I am a proper lady that loves to be hugged and cuddled. Through my years I’ve had some rough patches that I’ve had to live with but the nice people at ADL have helped me through them and I’m feeling so so much better now. I am able to move around and enjoy the air and the warm sun now all I need is a warm loving of a forever family and a forever home. If you give me a chance I promise that I will be forever loving and caring!"

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."

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!"

Tina Marie"Such a sweet name – I must be a delicate little dog who enjoys sitting daintily on your lap while you sip tea, right? Wrong! I am little, but delicate? Not a chance! They call me “spunky,” which means I can’t sit still for a second. I want to be playing or kissing or rolling in the grass or chasing bugs or finding mischief. That’s what life’s all about! If I came to live with you, I’d bring my sense of joy with me and we would have a grand time together."

Mandy
"I need you today. Please come and give, without taking. I’m looking for my Manilow to write songs about me and love me! I am a little shy, but a kind, patient person could really bring me out of my shell. If you want someone to sing love songs to, I’m the perfect dog for you!"

Sid
"No one is going to confuse me with Sid Vicious, that’s for sure. I’m a tiny, calm, cuddly dog who is content to snuggle in your arms and give you sweet little kisses all day. I came here with a bad eye that had apparently been damaged at some point, so it was removed. I couldn’t see out of it anyway, so I’m adjusting fine. I have another one that’s perfectly good. If you’re looking for a cute little lap pet, I’m your man."
