Edgar
"Look at me, look at me! I am the doggo with the best wiggle with the best smile and with the best eyes. I’d just like to say that if we meet and I get a belly rub from you then I’ll go crazy in love with you and would want to give you a loving hug. I love treats but let’s be honest, who doesn’t love treats, but seriously give me treats though and my hugs will be endless. I love to be out and about so let’s meet!"
Salvador
"Take a good look at these blue eyes, you’ll fall in love with me right away! I am a very handsome boy who loves to go out on walks, I’m pretty good on the leash. I would love it if you came down to spend time with me so we can get to know each other very well and hopefully you’ll give me my forever home."
Loki
"Hi, I’m Loki! I’m just an all around goofy pooch! I love treats so much that I’ll give you my full attention until I get one. I am just a big and cheerful love bug who’s waiting to become your best bud! Let’s meet soon!"
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!"
Bart
"Hi! I am a wiggly happy boy who loves all the attention! I get very entertained and distracted by shoelaces and any type of lace I see, they look very fun to play with! Although I am a very energetic boy that loves to have fun with my human pals, I need a cozy home where I can take it easy for a while because I’m healing from an injury on my left leg. Let’s meet, I’m sure you’ll fall in love with me!"
Sophie
"Hello! I’m Sophie! I am always ready to get out of my kennel and check out everything that’s going on at ADL. I’m very friendly and like to be around the humans. Let’s meet so that we can get to know each other better!"
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!"
Patches
"I am Patches, and I am the leader and protector of my pack. What I lack in size I make up for in personality. I also think I am better looking than my best friend, but don’t tell her I said that. I have formed quite the bond with my friend Foxy, so we both are earnestly campaigning to go to a home together. I am a kind, lovable guy as she can attest to, and I have enough to go around to a human or humans that take us home."
Rudolph
"Hello, I am Rudolph! Aren’t I a handsome boy? I’m also a nice boy but sometimes I’m a little wary around new people so please take your time with me. Before you know it, you’ll soon gain my trust and be seeing plenty of smiles from me! I enjoy the outdoors and love to go for walks. I like to sit by the side of people I know. I am looking forward to finding someone who’ll give me the chance be their best friend. Come by and meet me today!"
Genghis Khan
"I am strong and young and eager to go. I am not sure my name is right for me because I am a sweetie who just loves attention and am good with children as well as big people. I have to admit, though, that I consider other dogs to be the enemy that arouses my not so nice side. So I need a home where I can be the only dog. I promise you won’t regret it if you adopt me."

Navy
"Hi, I’m Navy! I’m a playful gal who loves to have a jolly good time! My zippy personality will fit in perfectly with someone with an active lifestyle! I will be sure to bring lots of cheer and joy to any home. I would like to meet any possible fur-siblings to see how well we get along. If you’re looking for a fun sidekick, then please give me a chance to fill that position!"
Gizzie
"Hi there! I’m an incredibly sweet and loving girl that wants nothing more than your love. I sometimes have playful bursts of energy because I always want to have fun, especially when people are around! I also enjoy relaxing and sleeping for hours. I’m a smart gal too! I know how to sit, shake, and do so much more. When you visit me, I may be barking at you in my kennel, but please ask to take me out so you can see my true personality shine! And according to staff around here, I make the most adorable funny faces. How about you come by and I’ll show you? I’m sure I’ll make you smile!"
Sadie
"Hello! I am the curious Sadie! I like to check out everything going on around me. I am gentle older lady and have excellent leash walking manners. I like to relax most of the day but just because I’m a senior doesn’t mean that I don’t know how to have fun! I love playtime and being outdoors. I like to play with toys and I really enjoy splashing around in the kiddie pool! All I want is to be around people and I would especially love to be around you. Please visit me so that I can show you how wonderful I am!"
Voldebork
"Where do I begin to explain myself? I’m a strong, active, loving dog with a kind heart who gets along with most dogs and people. I was found on a college campus, obviously a stray but soaking up all the attention I could get. A kind lady took me home and tried to find my owner but had no luck. With a house full of family and dogs, she couldn’t keep me though everyone there had fallen in love with me, so they brought me here. She left a letter all about me for the lucky family that adopts me. I hope it says good things! I have a feeling it does, because I’ve seen people cry when they read it. Take me home and you can read it too."
Charles
"Hi, I’m Charles! I’ll probably try to charm you with my playful personality and my friendly attitude. I enjoy going for walks and playing with toys but I will have to take it easy due to a healing fracture in my leg. I’m a good boy who gets along with everyone including dogs too. I’d love a home where I can lounge around with my best friend. I hope you give me a chance to meet you! Maybe we can become best friends?"
Lauralai
"Hi there! I’m Lauralai! I’m a bit of an older gal but don’t let that fool ya! I still have the energy of a young lady who enjoys playing, exploring, and going on outdoor adventures. Along with my energy, I have a lot of love to give! I’m sure that I’ll keep you smiling with my silly antics. Please give a playful doggy like me a chance to be your furry best friend!"
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!"
Lafayette
"It’s hot outside and my favorite thing about that is playing in water to keep cool! I LOVE water! I also really like toys and tend to wear them out fairly quickly. I’m playful, silly and cheerful! I can’t wait to find my best friend who’ll take me out on adventures, especially ones that involve me splashing around in water. Let’s meet and find out if we can be forever pals!"
Jada
"I am a pretty girl with a big smile. When I get a chance to go out, I am all about sniffing and exploring everywhere. I need to get that out of my system, then I will be ready for calmer things such as my celebrity photo shoot. I can be a little bit nervous sometimes, but other times you will hardly notice it. I would like to be the celebrity in your home!"
Abby
"Hi, I’m Abby! Yes, I know I have unique and super cool eyes. Besides having cool eyes, I’m also an incredibly friendly and playful gal! I’m searching for a person who’ll enjoy having fun me around. Would you like to be my friend? Please, say yes! Come see my personality sparkle and shine in person!"
