“Hi, I’m Glitter! Yes, I know I have unique and super cool eyes. Besides having cool eyes, I’m also an incredibly friendly and playful gal! I’m searching for a person who’ll enjoy having fun me around. Would you like to be my friend? Please, say yes! Come see my personality sparkle and shine in person!”
“Hi, I’m Mijo! Don’t I look like an adorable teddy bear? I enjoy a good walk and don’t mind hanging out with the other canines around here…although I can’t really see them too well. I’m a lover of treats and will become your immediate friend if you have some for me! All I want is a nice comfy bed to lay on most of the day. Come by and meet little me!”
“I wanna rock and roll all night and party every day! I wanna rock and roll all night and party every day! Oh, well hello there! I’m just singing my favorite song. I’m an energy packed dog and my idea of a party involves dancing, jumping, wiggling around and showing off my Gene Simmons tongue! Before I came to ADL, I was partying with a pack of fleas, well those fleas were pretty wild and caused me some hair-loss. Thank goodness ADL helped me out and kicked those pesky fleas off my back! My hair is growing back and I’m doing so much better! I’m ready to find a friend who will love having silly me around. So if you’re looking for a fun pooch that’ll keep you on your toes and be goofy with you, then I’m your man! Visit me soon and let’s start rock and rollin’ together.”
“Hi, I’m Butler! What kind of jokes does a butler tell? Clean Jokes! Ha! Aren’t I a dapper little guy?! I’m also well-mannered, calm, sweet, and the perfect size to curl perfectly into your lap and watch Netflix with! Please, give me a chance to be your Butler!”
"Hi, I’m Bologna! Not to be confused with detective McGruff the Crime Dog! A lot of people say I look like a short version of him. However, I won’t be working on taking a bite out of crime but I may work on taking a bite out of a dog biscuit! The only detective work I really like to do is scoping out my surroundings because I’m a curious boy. I typically stroll casually on the leash while I check out my surroundings. I’m just a chill dog with a big Boxer type head on a Basset Hound body. Please visit me to get to know me better!"
"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!"
"Hi, I’m Brutus! I am a sweet and happy boy! My hobbies include running and playing with everything! I am looking for a forever home with a yard so that I can spend time being energetic with my human. I think I might be too energetic for small children, so if kids are in the home, I would prefer to be around older children. I also request a meeting with all potential dog siblings to see how well we get along. Yes, sometimes I am picky with who my canine friends are. Hmm..let’s see….what else? Oh! I have an issue with my back, so sometimes I will need to avoid climbing stairs. Overall, I’m a fun dog to have around! Maybe I can bring fun to you home?"
"I am full of lots and lots of energy and love to play tug-a-war. I am told that I am very smart because I know sit, lay, stay, and leave it. I am a bit scared of strangers so the commands might not register as quickly but once we get to know one another and get each other’s vibes I’m sure we will be playing and jiving."
“I am a lady who loves to go for good long walks but the Texas weather can be a bit too much at times for me so I love a good cold floor to lay on when it’s just too hot outside. I enjoy riding in cars and being with my human friends but I am respectful and try not to lay on the seats. I love meeting new people and getting to know them because there’s nothing better than getting new friends! I am hoping to meet you sometime soon so we can be a forever family!”
"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."
