Bonnie
"I’m trying my best to not be so shy around people but can you blame me? I was found roaming a neighborhood with nowhere to go and was brought here to look for a home. I’m looking forward to the day I find that special person for me, so that I can have a nice home where I can relax with them. I’m sure within time, I’ll learn to break out of my shell and show my true self. Will you give me a chance to get to know you and be your best friend?"

Francesca
"What can I say about me? I’m gorgeous, with my long legs, slim body and white coat that has just a few light tan highlights. I’m young, still a pup really, who loves my toys and exploring on walks. I’m a bit on the shy side at first and I show it by barking so people won’t come close and scare me, but once I get to know you I like to lean against you and give you gentle kisses. I am waiting for a home so I can relax and be myself and just love everyone."

Nutella & Gronk
"I’m Nutella, the black and white dog on the left. I came to ADL with my brother Gronk who is the silly boy next to me. We came to ADL together and wish to find a home where we can stay together. Gronk and I love to play tag and goof around. We would love to have an active human friend who’ll be happy to take us out for walks. Do you think you have room in your heart for the both of us? If so, then please come by and let’s meet!"

Brady
"I may be somewhat nervous when we first meet. Especially here at ADL where there’s a lot of action always going on. I just need a moment to become familiar with my surroundings and with new people. I like to run outside, jump around and play with toys. I know how to sit, crawl, and love to fetch!  I also smile a lot, I’ve been told I have a great smile. Come on out and give me a chance to smile for you!  Let’s go for a walk in the ADL dog park away from the action and get to know each other better. What do you think? Will you give me a chance to be your best friend?"

Dudley
"Boys just like to have fun too, and I’m a perfect example. I get so happy when you come to my door that I jump around and beg to go out. I love attention and I love going out to play and explore. Because I’m new here I can be a bit skittish and don’t like being startled, but I know that’s just temporary. I can’t wait to settle into my forever home so I won’t have to worry about that any more. I bet your home is just perfect!"

Leticia
"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!"

Jackson
"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."

Ronnie
"I am a cute little guy who has been around just a few years, enough to be past the puppy stage.  If I seem shy at first, let me assure you that I warm up very quickly. I kind of liked being held up in the air so they could take a nice photo for you to see.  If you adopt me, I promise to be your very best friend forever."

Riddler
"I might try to sit right in front of a person. It’s not that I’m shy, though I am just a little, especially around men. It’s that I love being close to people and leaning against them. But look at that smile – I am a happy boy. I like being out in nature, and I love treats. I sit nicely for them. I would also love getting a forever home, and I would love meeting you and convincing you that I am the right dog for you."

Jamie
"I am a slightly shy and gentle little gal. I’m actually from Houston and was brought to ADL due to Hurricane Harvey. I found a home but it didn’t work out so now I am looking again. I had some trouble with my eyes and as you see, I don’t have them any more. I am busy readjusting and doing a lot of practice using my excellent sense of smell as a replacement. I would love to go on short walks with you and explore our world with my nose and ears, but mostly my nose. I would fit in wonderfully in a quiet home where I can take naps and relax. Maybe I can relax with you?"
