Tiki
"Hi there! I’m a strong, lively gal that is searching for an active friend who’ll embrace my energy. I love being outdoors so I would make a great camping buddy. Ooooo and I also love treats! I already know ‘sit’ and ‘down’ and I’m very treat motivated, which means I could easily learn much more! Can you picture it? Just imagine, my beautiful blue and brown eyes lovingly gazing up at you after a walk in the dog park. Come meet me today and let’s become best friends forever!"
Josie
"Well how do you do, I am Josie, and let me start off by saying that if you got a treat I’ll take a sit just for the said treat. Now, I got to say, I do love attention and running around outside to explore! When we meet, if you take me out to the doggie park and start handing me treats well let’s say you and I will be a match!”
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!"
Navy
"Hi, I’m Navy! I’m a playful gal who loves to have a jolly good time! My zippy personality will fit in perfectly with someone with an active lifestyle! I will be sure to bring lots of cheer and joy to any home. I would like to meet any possible fur-siblings to see how well we get along. If you’re looking for a fun sidekick, then please give me a chance to fill that position!"
Lafayette
"It’s hot outside and my favorite thing about that is playing in water to keep cool! I LOVE water! I also really like toys and tend to wear them out fairly quickly. I’m playful, silly and cheerful! I can’t wait to find my best friend who’ll take me out on adventures, especially ones that involve me splashing around in water. Let’s meet and find out if we can be forever pals!"
Joel
"Hi, I’m Joel! Some of us dogs just can’t get into hanging out in our kennels because we find kennels boring! I’d much rather be outside where all the action is! Give me a chance to meet you outside and you’ll see what a happy boy I am! I walk well on a leash and will smile for you. Sometimes I’m on alert for squirrels and will scope out my surroundings. I can be charming and I love attention, especially when attention involves me receiving treats! I love treats and I learn very quickly. Once I get to know you, I might turn into a lap dog. I have to admit that I may get excitable during playtime, so it would be best that I go to a home with older children. I also get along great with dogs but I’d rather hang out with the calm ones. I’m ready to find my home soon! Please give me a chance to go on a stroll in the dog park with you!"
Zara
"I’m a nice girl and like most hounds, I’m an explorer who loves to go for walks. I will curiously check out the whole area while I’m out for a walk. I’m very people-friendly and will make a great companion to my forever person. I’d prefer to be the only dog in my future home so that I can have all the attention on me and shower you with kisses! Let’s hang out so that we can get to know each other better and possibly become best friends!"
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!"
Reggie
"How is everyone doing? Let me start off by saying that I am very happy that you are looking at my profile and have an interest in me. You see, I really enjoy being around people because everyone around at ADL seems so friendly so I like to be friendly back to them especially when they take me out for walks! I have an idea, how about you come down to ADL and we go for a nice long walk and get to know each other? Let’s do it!"
Moo Cow
"Hello! I’m a big boy who’s looking for my other half. I need a home where I get lots of exercises. I’m still working on my leash manners, I just so excited to go places with all of my human pals! I also really like to play but because I am a big boy my play style might be too much for smaller peeps. I really would love to find a forever home! I’d like to find a forever family that will love me always!"

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."
Rudolph
"Hello, I am Rudolph! Aren’t I a handsome boy? I’m also a nice boy but sometimes I’m a little wary around new people so please take your time with me. Before you know it, you’ll soon gain my trust and be seeing plenty of smiles from me! I enjoy the outdoors and love to go for walks. I like to sit by the side of people I know. I am looking forward to finding someone who’ll give me the chance be their best friend. Come by and meet me today!"
Big Boy
"They don’t call me Big Boy for no reason! I have a big body with a big heart! I am a charming boy who just wants attention and TREATS! Yum! I’ll be ready to sit for a tasty treat and even shake your hand. I love food so much that I would prefer to be left alone with my food as I chow down on it. I do not share with anyone! I enjoy being around people but I prefer to go to a home with no children. I need someone strong enough to handle my strength on the leash because sometimes I forget how strong I can be. Come by and meet me! I’ll be ready to lean on you and love you! And I hope that you’ll love me right back. I can’t wait to meet you!"
Colt
"Hi, I’m Colt! I’m a bashful boy with cute scraggly Benji-like hair. I’m currently looking for a special person who’ll understand that I’m a bit of a nervous guy. However, I can be playful and enjoy having fun! You’ll just need to go slow with me when we meet. I’m trying my best to build up courage and I’m sure with the right person in a loving home, my personality will blossom! If you’re willing to give me a chance at a forever home, then please come spend some quality time with me!"
Amy
"I follow where my nose leads me because I love smelling things. But offer me a treat and I’ll sit for it and then gobble it up, because I also love treats! Even though I was left out on the streets because I have arthritis and my owner didn’t want to deal with it, I love and trust people. Just look at my face – you can see it’s full of love. I take medicine and feel absolutely fine and frisky. We could be great friends and have a wonderful life together, so let’s get together and talk about it, OK?"
Dave
"Dave is the name and sit for the treat is the game. The rules are simple, you show me a treat and if I sit down then you hand me over a treat! I love the game, there’s nothing better! Hopefully, you and I can play this game and we become best pals! Better yet we become a forever family and I can have a forever home. That will be the best!"
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!"
Carly
"I am a very shy girl but I am very sweet and loving. I also love treats and would feel much more comfortable receiving a delicious treat from you 🙂 I am a very curious girl as well and love to explore my surroundings but would love it more with you by my side!"
Chase
"I am a little guy who is proud of myself and proud of my terrific photo. I haven’t had a great life in the past, and that has left me with some skin issues and a tendency to have a bit of the shakes. My skin will get better but maybe not the other thing. I don’t think it will interfere a bit with our life together, and I know I am deserving of a much better one than I have had in the past."
Imogen
"Hi, I’m Imogen! I am an oldie but goodie. But don’t let my age fool you! I still got some spunk left in me especially when I see yummy treats. So you may be wondering why I have an ear missing. Well, that’s how I came to ADL and we’re not really sure how it happened but the nice hospital staff here helped clean up my ears. I am more than ready to find my forever person! I would love to go on a nice walk with you and then relax at home on a big bed next to you. Doesn’t that sound like a delightful idea? Come meet me and see how loving and great I am!"
