Dude
"I’ve been around the block more than a few times, so I know what I like. Treats, for one! I love treats. And I know if I sit, I deserve one. So I will sit and look at you expectantly until you fork one over. It won’t take you long, because I’m so cute you can’t resist. I’m a happy little guy, especially when I’m cuddling in blankets. That’s so much fun! I like things to be calm for the most part, especially when it comes to other dogs and kids. I’m fine with dogs that are calm and just leave me alone, and kids are cool as long as they are calm too. The thing I like best is having a forever home – like yours."

Titan
"My ears and, uh, more personal body parts barely clear the ground, but that doesn’t make me any less of a Titan. We bassets are big dogs packed into a long, low shape and we are well-loved for it. I love walks, howling as only a basset can do, getting belly rubs and just looking around. I’m a sweet old man who has a few old-man conditions like glaucoma and arthritis, but they are under control with medicines. I would love a home where I can lounge around when I want to and get lots of love. I promise, you can pet my ears whenever you want!"

Coyote
"I look like I have had a bit of a rough life, but the staff here has found that I am very friendly and loving. I am energetic but strong, so a strong walking or running partner would be a good match for me. I love food and treats, so that will sure help you to train me to behave how you want and make me happy in the process!"

Nicolette
“I am a lady who loves to go for good long walks but the Texas weather can be a bit too much at times for me so I love a good cold floor to lay on when it’s just too hot outside. I enjoy riding in cars and being with my human friends but I am respectful and try not to lay on the seats. I love meeting new people and getting to know them because there’s nothing better than getting new friends! I am hoping to meet you sometime soon so we can be a forever family!”

Triscuit
"You’ll probably need to ask the staff where to find me when you visit the cattery because I’m good at hiding. Why do I hide? Well, I’m a shy kitty and this environment is new to me. It’s hard to say why exactly I’m a shy kitty around here but that doesn’t mean that I’ll be the same in a home of my own. All I want is to move into a calm and peaceful home where I can take it easy with my human. If I can be given that chance, I’m sure my true personality will blossom!"

Kismet
"I am a delightful young man. I am obedient and walk well on a leash, plus I know several commands. I can sit, shake, and lay down but maybe not all at once. I love treats so it would be easy peasy to train me some more. The best thing of all about me, though, is I have the biggest smile in the whole place. I like to play rough so please ask the staff for more information about how I would be with kids and other animals. Don’t you think it is fate that we should meet?”

Pixie
“I am living proof that you can indeed teach an old – or let’s say middle-aged – dog new tricks. I’m 7, and I’m learning to be quiet. I used to be noisy, but now every time I’m told to be quiet and I am, I get a treat! What could be better than that? Well, getting a forever home would be, for sure. I’m a nice, friendly girl and would make a wonderful companion, as long as I’m an only dog.”

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!"

"I may not look like a goddess, and I don’t know if I am particularly wise or brave, but I am a lot of fun and awfully cute with that ear that flops over the top of my head. I adore toys and would probably be great at fetch. I’m a pretty mellow gal who enjoys walks but would rather lie at your feet than go for a run or a long hike. Come see me, let me give you a slobbery kiss, and let’s chat about a life together."

Calie
"Hi, I’m Calie! I came here to ADL with my sister Chloe. We’re both a bit shy at the moment but that’s only because we’ve spent the past 14 years in a home together and suddenly we’re here! Unfortunately, our owner passed away and now we’re on a journey to find our new home. We are often attached at the hip because we really love each! We’d really like to find a home where we can continue to be loved and stay together. Will you give us a chance to be yours?"

Sashi Marie
"Don’t you think I’m beautiful? There is so much of me to love, and I have so much love to give! I’m on a weight-loss journey, as they like to say here, but even when I reach the end of it, I won’t have lost any of that love – it will just be concentrated in a smaller package. I am full of sweetness, and hugs are my specialty. Sniffing around while on walks is lots of fun. I’m not supposed to have treats, but I will sit on command anyway. Wouldn’t it be great to help me go from full-figured to petite?"

Elsa
"Hi, I’m Elsa! Or you can call me Queen Elsa! I am a big jolly gal who is always wearing eyeliner. I have to admit, I don’t have the best leash skills, I forget that I can be powerful and tug on the leash a lot. I love to be around people but I can be picky with my K9 friends. As for cats, I’m just not fond of those critters. Since I’ve come to ADL, I’ve been treated for heartworms and the people in the hospital believe it caused me to have a heart murmur. This heart of mine is still strong and has a lot of love to give! I’ll just need to take it easy and be sure to not over exert myself. I wouldn’t mind lounging on a couch with my best friend. If you’re interested in making me your best friend and can handle a big doggy like me, then let’s meet!"
