25 Puppers Who are Looking for a New Home

The Animal Defense League of Texas, a no-kill shelter located 11300 Nacogdoches Road, has several dogs that are currently looking for a forever home. Check out the dogs that are currently available and just try saying no to adopting one of these cuties. It's basically impossible. All photos are courtesy of the Animal Defense League of Texas.

Want to see a balancing act that will brighten your day? Then visit me! I’ll be sure to entertain you and make you laugh! I’ll stand up on my two back hind legs so that I can get attention from everyone around me. It usually works well! People can’t resist my balancing act and I have this cute curled tail that’s very similar to a pig’s tail. It gives me character. I love to be held and sit in everyone’s lap. I also might rollover on my back and request belly rubs. I love belly rubs! I will bring so much joy to my forever home. Please visit me to see my antics in action.

They call me the wiggle monster! My little 10 pound body is packed full of energy and so much love! I’m playful and enjoy running around. I’m still learning how to walk on a leash, so don’t be surprised if I fling my wiggly body onto the ground during a walk in the park. I get along with dogs, kiddos, and everyone. I’m very young and ready to start the rest of my life in a fun home with an active family. Please visit me to see my enthusiastic personality in action!

I’m an energetic, happy little (and I do mean little) guy whose antics will keep you laughing. Some of those antics involve the part of me right under my curly tail hitting the ground and bouncing back up again, but I can’t help it. The kneecaps on my back legs won’t stay in place and it makes my back half fall a lot, but I don’t even notice. I might need surgery later if it gets worse, but right now I’m just a normal Chihuahua who should probably spend a little more time cuddling and a little less time running – which is fine with me. All I need is a loving human to cuddle with me!

I’m such a happy girl that you would never think I had been through tough times in my life. Besides the fact that I don’t have a true forever home yet, I also had a battle with cancer. It wasn’t easy, but thanks to the help of the ADL hospital staff, I am now a cancer survivor! Now I can playfully romp around and be my energetic happy self. I’m very friendly, and I give out hugs instantly to new people that I meet. I’m a big girl with a big heart filled with lots of love to give. Overall, I’d make a loyal companion to a loving person and I hope that person can be you.

 Benedict
You can’t tell from the part of me that shows in this photo, but I have the spotted-patch markings of an Australian cattle dog. You also can’t tell from the part of me that shows that I have the markings of a dog that loves water – meaning the bottom part of my body has a lot of mud on it! I do clean up well though, and my playful, loving nature makes up for the mud – at least I hope it does. If I had to choose between getting muddy and going home with you, I would give up the mud in a flash!

BlakeOne minute I am bouncing straight up and down because someone is coming to see me, the next I am trembling in that person’s arms and looking all sad for my photo.  In reality I am active and playful and I do like to be on someone’s lap, but only for a minute – then I will find something else that captures my attention and I am ready to go again!  I do like to kiss someone, and I even do that enthusiastically.  What’s not to love about life? I am tiny, I am might, and I am ready to go home with you.

Cooper
Sure, gold and silver are nice, but I bet you can guess what I think is better. And once you meet me, you’ll agree. I’m not exactly soft and malleable like the metal – in fact, I’m pretty strong and active or my age – but I know how to be calm and well-behaved too. I just have a zest for life that shows in everything I do. Sometimes it shows as a kind of goofiness, like when I suddenly drop and roll over on my back, begging for a belly rub. I do need some special care because of a chronic kidney problem that requires medication, special food and keeping an eye out to make sure everything stays good. But I feel great and I sure would love to go home with you.

Yes I do, no I don’t, yes I do … when you come to my kennel, I show you I want to come out and visit, but then I get shy, but I really, really want to be friends, but I’m not quite sure, but I’m tempted …. Once I take the plunge, I’m so glad, because I love people and enjoy being around them. I like children too, and small calm dogs. I think life will be so wonderful when I can live with people who love me.

Don’t let my expression fool you, I’m a friendly girl! I can sometimes be shy but I’m generally energetic and happy. I enjoy rolling around in the grass and being the goofball that I am. I’m playful and love splashing around in my pool. I love treats, and if you ask me to, I’ll even sit for a treat!  Can’t you imagine these loving eyes waking you up with kisses and love? Come by and visit me today!

My hair is so black, I must remind someone of Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, hostess of late-night horror movies.  Do I look like that kind of girl to you? I do love to kiss, and I don’t wait until I’ve known you long to get started, but that’s because I’m so friendly and sweet. My little stub of a tail wags so hard my whole back end wiggles when I see a new person. I’m a very gentle, well-behaved dog, and I think I’d be a great companion for just about anyone.
