Trey
"I am one big bundle of love. And I do mean big. I’m like a giant baby that wants nothing more than to get lots of attention. Rumor has it that when I don’t get that attention, I make velociraptor sounds, but they really aren’t very scary. How could they be, coming from this baby face? If you want to be loved like you’ve never been loved before, come see me."

Walker
"Hi, I’m Walker! I’m told my name fits me perfectly cause boy do I LOVE to go on walks and not just play in a backyard type of deal. Actually, leash me up and let’s go explore! I’m a charming boy who enjoys a good chest and neck scratch. I would love to get to know you! How about you meet me at the Paul Jolly and ask the staff to take me out for a walk?  I would LOVE that!"

Wayne
"I am a strong boy with a lot of energy, so I am looking for an active family who loves to exercise and play. I was advertising these desires to the people taking my photo by playing tug of war with them with my leash. I happen to think that life is for being happy and enjoying every day. Do you agree? Then adopting me will add to your joy as I share every day with you."

Isabel
"Hi, I’m the lovely Isabel! I’m a happy-go-lucky older gal! I may be an oldie but goodie but I still have some spunk for my age. I am always ready to have a good time with people and would fit in great with someone who likes to go on walks. I’m ready to spread some cheer around. If you have any potential doggy friends, I’d like to have the chance to meet them first before we become official fur-siblings. Please give a pretty girl like me a chance to have a forever home with you!"

Kiara
"Just look at my focus! I’m young, but I’m not some flitty young thing who can’t sit still for two seconds. I know how to sit and shake, and I know what I want. What do I want? To be with you, of course. I’m friendly and playful, ready for an active life with humans who can love me like I love them. Does that sound like you?"

Jughead
"I’m not just named after the comic book, I’m a lot like the “real” Jughead. Despite my perky look, I love being lazy, just like Jughead. I do like walks, and if you entice me enough, I enjoy being active and playing with my family.  One thing I do not like is cats, so don’t even think about that. I’m pretty picky about my dog friends, so if you like me and already have a dog, I’d advise bringing him by for a visit to see if I approve. I adore people and being around them, and if you take me home, we will be BFFs, I just know it."

Chance
"Despite my size, I’m full of enthusiasm. The only problem is that my enthusiasm also involves food, which has led to a slight (OK, more than slight) problem of overweight. That means as much as I love to play, my weight interferes with my ability to do it as much as I would like to. The solution? I’m on a diet. That’s not a lot of fun, but they tell me that if I’m a good boy and stick to it, I will be able to frolic like I did when I was a slim, trim jock of a dog. Wouldn’t you love to help a sweet, chubby guy get back down to his best weight? I will love you forever!"

Cordelia
"You’ve heard the term “gentle giant.” That’s me. I’m a large gal, but I’m calm, loving, and look at me smile! I’m mostly American bulldog, which is nothing like what you picture when you think of a bulldog. I do great on the leash, and I sit for treats. I love being around people, and I’ll be glad to show you when you come for a visit."

Olive
"Hi, I’m Olive! Can you believe I’ve been at ADL for over a year? Crazy, right! I know my person is out there somewhere! Please tell me it could possibly be you! A little about me…I can be a bit shy around new people and places so I may need some time to adjust to my new home. Please don’t let that worry you because before you know it, I am as playful as can be! I love running, exploring, and enjoying my time outdoors. You might catch me rolling around in the grass with a squeaky toy in my mouth because I LOVE to play with toys! I also enjoy a good game of fetch and have impressive skills at catching tennis balls in midair. I’m very treat motivated! I’ll sit for treats and happily stare at you with puppy dog eyes as I wait for the treat. I would fit in best in a home with older considerate children and although I’d prefer to be the only furbaby, I might consider a dog-sibling too. So if you have any potential dog-siblings for me, then let’s set up a meet-and-greet! Overall, I’m a friendly and playful gal who just needs a special person who’ll love me no matter what. I may have a very serious expression when you see me at ADL but there is a silly side to me that you must see! Please give me a chance to show you how fun I can be!"

David
"Hi, my name is David and I’m one smart cookie. I know how to sit, shake, lay down, high five, and I’m even learning how to speak on command. I’m very treat motivated, so teaching me new tricks will be a snap! I’m a young boy, so I still have a good amount of energy and would be a great addition to athletic households. Also, if you haven’t noticed by now, I have beautiful eyes which are perfect for admiring. Don’t wait too long, come meet me as soon as you can!"
