"Hi, I’m Daisy! I’m a sweet old lady who gets tail-wagging happy when I’m outside! When I came to ADL the veterinarian discovered that I had a mass on my eyelid. No need to worry about me because I had surgery to remove it and I’m doing much better now! I am a friendly gal who is just ready to move into my forever home. Will you give an oldie but goodie like me a chance to be your furry best friend? Please say yes!"
"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!"
"Hello, I’m the handsome Adonis! I’m a gentle lad with a calm demeanor. Please go slow with me because I can be a bit timid around lots of action. Overall, I am a happy boy who enjoys playtime and talking. Once I warm up to you, I’ll be demanding attention from you! Come hang out with me and let’s talk about making me your new furry best friend. I’ll be so happy to meet you!"
"Hi, I’m Hamilton! I am a gentle lad with a puppy-like face and a white muzzle. I enjoy taking it slow when I’m out for a stroll. I think I would fit in best in a calm home where there’s not too much action. A home where I can be a couch potato with my human best friend would be wonderful. Please give an oldie but goodie like me a chance to be your new pal!"
"Hello, I’m Jinx! I’m an independent, laid back, adventurous gal. I LOVE being outdoors breathing in all the fresh air. I also walk very well on a leash so will make a great walking buddy. I enjoy a good back rub and cookies. Please come by and meet me at the Paul Jolly Center for Pet Adoptions! I’ll be smiling and ready to meet you!"
"Hello world! My name is Franklin! I’m a goofy, lovable, and energetic boy just looking for the perfect family to adopt and love me forever! I’m pretty active so I wouldn’t mind long walks and maybe playing with tons of toys. I’m also a bit clumsy so bare with me, but I feel like it just adds to my wonderful personality! Please come meet me at the Paul Jolly Center so we can fall in love!"
"If you know what a herding breed dog is like, you will already know a lot about me. Most of all, I have a high energy level and love to be kept busy. I would need more training on manners but already know how to sit for a treat. The secret to our success is for you to provide me with plenty of exercise and activities. Be patient with me and you will be greatly rewarded!"
"I am a beautiful girl who is bursting with energy. I was looking for something to do so much during my photo shoot that they got a lot of pictures of the back of my head, my read end, my side, and finally a perfect one! I am looking for a family with whom I can do the things I love, run and explore, have adventures, go hunting or camping. I just know the perfect home for me is somewhere out there!"
"I’m Lyric, that’s right the one and only Lyric. I am such a spontaneous gal that enjoys an open area where I can run and jump. You see that smile, that is the smile I will have once I get to meet you because I love to be with humans and become best pals!”
"Hello hello, Maui is my name, and I got to say it is great that you’re reading about me. I am as friendly as can be and as welcoming as can be! I love hugs but then again who doesn’t love snuggly hugs. It will be the best time ever to have you come over so we can meet and get to know each other!"

"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!"
"Dave is the name and sit for the treat is the game. The rules are simple, you show me a treat and if I sit down then you hand me over a treat! I love the game, there’s nothing better! Hopefully, you and I can play this game and we become best pals! Better yet we become a forever family and I can have a forever home. That will be the best!"
"I’m a happy young dog that loves to run and explore. I like to play in water so so much. Playing in a mini pool is always fun and exciting! I hope to one day have a forever family that will take me to places with lots of water, like a like or even better a beautiful beach! Will you like to take me there one day! Let’s go!"
"I have been described as a smart older guy who loves to just relax and enjoy my space. But that is only one side of me! Just show me a treat and I will try to sit as I am supposed to, but I just can hardly contain myself and wait for the person to actually give it to me. It looked delicious! Not fair to make me wait! I also love to be petted and get attention, what dog doesn’t? Don’t I sound irresistible?"
"Hi, I’m Kim! I’m a very happy go lucky girl! I know fetch, sit, and drop it. I’m ready to master more commands too! For training, treats can go a long way with me. I seem to like other dogs, and I love the company of humans. I walk very well on a leash, and I love to give sloppy wet kisses! As long as you greet me with open arms of excitement, I’ll be all yours!"
"Well how do you do, I am Josie, and let me start off by saying that if you got a treat I’ll take a sit just for the said treat. Now, I got to say, I do love attention and running around outside to explore! When we meet, if you take me out to the doggie park and start handing me treats well let’s say you and I will be a match!”
"Hi, I’m Spyro! Apparently I’m named after the purple dragon character from a video game but these spots on my fur make me look more like a cow! Don’t worry, I won’t stand around grazing on grass all day because I’m a playful boy! I get so happy when I go out for walks and enjoy playing with calm dogs. I’m always excited to go on adventures outdoors! Please visit me so that we can go on an adventure together!"
"I am a fine old dame whose face tells the story of my long and fruitful life. I still have a lot of living left to do, going for walks with someone I love or lounging around in a quiet home atmosphere. I would be happy to live with another dog if they are calm, friendly, and willing to share your love with me. A new home is definitely on my bucket list and it could be yours for this oldie but goodie."
"I’m a rowdy young dog, still growing and maturing and overflowing with puppy energy. I love running and playing, and splashing in water, especially in summer, is the greatest! I need an owner who’s experienced in taking care of dogs like me – dogs with good hearts who love being busy all the time and want to learn how to be good boys. Just like most youngsters, I can throw quite a temper tantrum when I get frustrated, so I need to learn to channel my energy. I bet I’d be great at sports like agility or frisbee. Will you be the one who helps me?"
"I’m trying my best to not be so shy around people but can you blame me? I was found roaming a neighborhood with nowhere to go and was brought here to look for a home. I’m looking forward to the day I find that special person for me, so that I can have a nice home where I can relax with them. I’m sure within time, I’ll learn to break out of my shell and show my true self. Will you give me a chance to get to know you and be your best friend?"
