Today is National Puppy Day, and in case you're wanting a new pup, we've rounded up info on several local shelters filled with canines, whether you stick to a tiny puppy or want to give a chance to an older dog.

Look at that smile! Flirty is a great starter dog. She love kids, and going on walks and exploring, which is one of the great many joys of owning a dog. Since she's only 41 pounds, she falls within the 45-pound weight limit of many apartment buildings.

Whether you want to call Flirty your own or adopt another dog, the cost is $60 is adult dogs and $150 for puppies 6 months and younger. This fee includes spay/neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, microchip, internal and external parasite treatment, a free trial period of pet insurance and even some pet food.

Coffee might just be the most handsome boy you see all day. Not only is he great with kids (think: kisses galore), but he loves people and will look up to you every day to make sure he's being a good boy.

All dogs from San Antonio Pets Alive come neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated. You also get a free month of pet insurance (similar to health insurance) to make sure your pup is as healthy as can be. All this and more for $202.

If you truly want a puppy, you might want to check out this girl. Like most puppies, Paris is adorable, loving, and likes to explore. She's a cream-colored terrier mix that's around two and a half months old. She should grow up to be a medium-size dog. Her adoption price is $135, and she's been dewormed, spayed, and vaccinated.

The Humane Society adoption fee ($135 for 7 months and younger, $50 for all others) includes a spay/neuter surgery, first set of vaccinations, microchip, de-wormer, flea & heartworm prevention, collar, tag and a complimentary wellness exam.

  • You will be Lucky to adopt this boy!
Think of Lucky as the perfect marriage of a puppy and an adult. He's old enough not to have accidents on the floor, he won't teethe on things, and he won't spit up on your best friend the first time they try to hold him. He's also old enough for you to teach him tricks, understand discipline, and be trained to be your perfect companion. He's the best of both worlds.

The adoption fee is $86 for all dogs and puppies. This gets your future pup a spay/neuter surgery, a lifetime registered microchip and tag, rabies vaccination, flea and tick prevention, and the first round of vaccinations.
