Bailey
"I am a bit shy at first because I am still trying to get used to my surroundings but once we get to know each other you will see that I can be a great cuddle buddy. I would love for us to spend all of our time together and become a forever family. I really would love a best friend that would be patient with me and give me all of their love!"

"Hi! I am a wiggly happy boy who loves all the attention! I get very entertained and distracted by shoelaces and any type of lace I see, they look very fun to play with! Although I am a very energetic boy that loves to have fun with my human pals, I need a cozy home where I can take it easy for a while because I’m healing from an injury on my left leg. Let’s meet, I’m sure you’ll fall in love with me!"

Tahini
"Hello, I’m Tahini! I’m a silly girl who loves to greet people so much that I get wiggly and start tap dancing on my tippy toes. I get so excited at the thought of finding my forever home! That’s why I jump for joy when I see people pass by my kennel. I’m a loving and playful young lady who loves to have fun. I hope to find an active person who’ll enjoy having fun with me too!"

Cindy Lou
"I am a kind-hearted girl who loves to meet people and go out exploring. I love treats and will actively seek them out once I smell them or see someone holding them. But I do know how to sit nicely to receive a treat, and I am willing to learn other things to help make out life together one big happy adventure."

Gonzo
"Hi, I’m Gonzo! Oooo got a treat? I love treats! I know how to sit for treats too and I’m sure I can learn more because I’m a smart boy. I am a nice dog with an elegant fur-coat and a big heart. Don’t I have a beautiful smile too? I’m very much ready to find my forever home and I hope that it can be a home with you!"

Nicolette
“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!”

Hercules
"I am a gentle giant that truly loves to spend time with every human friend that’s around me. I have gone through a lot this year. I was horribly injured before I came into ADL. I had a hole below my left eye. It was terribly difficult for me to eat food with the injury but the people at ADL helped me and now I am ready to find my forever family! I love going out for good long walks and enjoy treats so much that if I am told to sit I would do it for those yummy treats! I would love to meet you in person, just come to ADL and ask for me!"
