"I’m very friendly and sweet girl. I love love love to cuddle and very much enjoy getting belly rubs! I am a bit spunky and when I get very excited I can get the zoomies! I’d love to find a forever family that will spoil me soo much and give me all of their love and affection!"
"Hi, I’m Bernadette! Want to play? I’m always ready for playtime! I like to run around and leap for joy outside. I can be a bit of a goofball sometimes. Overall, I’m a loving little girl with a beautiful smile. I’m ready to find my forever friend who’ll enjoy living an active life with me. So if you’re looking at furry friend, please come by and meet me!"
"Hi, I’m Gonzo! Oooo got a treat? I love treats! I know how to sit for treats too and I’m sure I can learn more because I’m a smart boy. I am a nice dog with an elegant fur-coat and a big heart. Don’t I have a beautiful smile too? I’m very much ready to find my forever home and I hope that it can be a home with you!"
"Don’t I have a striking coat? It’s not scarlet like my name, but it’s beautiful anyway. Let me tell you some other things about me, since I have many other wonderful qualities. Modesty obviously isn’t one of them, but hey, when you’re as special as I am, why be shy about it? I love dogs, kids and toys, which is good because playing is my favorite thing to do. Even grownups like to play. I’m friendly to everyone. I’m strong, but I know how to calm down and be loving. I mean well and I’m willing to learn if you’re willing to teach me."
"Not only am I a pretty lady, but I’m also a cuddle bug! I enjoy cuddling, leaning up against legs, and going for walks. I LOVE treats and I know how to sit for them too! I can be a tiny bit shy at first when meeting new people but I’m a sweet lady who will be sweet towards everyone I meet. I know that I’ll make a wonderful furbaby to a loving family, I just wish I could find that family soon!"
"Hi everyone, so first thing is first, I love to hang with people and just enjoy the outdoors. Running and running till I can’t run anymore and then just lay and roll around on the grass! I also love to received warm hugs with the deepest affection! And I would love going home with you, where we could spend the rest of our lives playing and loving each other. I think you should come by and get me right away!"
"I am an energetic and fun guy who loves his toys. If you toss me a ball, I will catch it in the air 100% of the time. I am thinking of trying out as an outfielder for the Astros but I plan to wait and see if they win the World Series first! Or until I find a really great family to love me and play ball with me, whichever comes first."
"Hello, hello, hello hello!!! I am Shiner, the goofball that you will fall in love with 🙂 I love to run around outside and spend time with everyone. I want everyone to love me and I want everyone to feel as happy as I do when I’m spending time with my human pals. I am a silly piglet that has nothing but lots of love for you!"
"I’m just a big, affectionate hunk of dog who is enthusiastic about everything, especially humans and treats. I’ll sit for a treat, but I get so excited about taking it that I’m not exactly gentle about it. Don’t get me wrong – I wouldn’t hurt a flea (OK, I would hurt a flea, but not anything else), — but I just forget that my mouth is a lot bigger than the treat. I know sit and shake too, but my shake sometimes turns into giving you both paws in hopes that it will get me more treats. I’ll make you laugh with my antics and I’ll make you love me too."
"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!"

"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!"
"Hello, I’m Tahini! I’m a silly girl who loves to greet people so much that I get wiggly and start tap dancing on my tippy toes. I get so excited at the thought of finding my forever home! That’s why I jump for joy when I see people pass by my kennel. I’m a loving and playful young lady who loves to have fun. I hope to find an active person who’ll enjoy having fun with me too!"
"I am a big goofy guy that’s packed full of energy. I tend to get a bit rambunctious and nosey when I’m out for a walk. I can’t help it, I’m just always so curious of everything around me. I’m very friendly around all people but not so much towards cats. I prefer to not be around cats. I enjoy being in the company of humans, it makes me so happy! I’m always excited when I see people; I’m always hoping that someone will take me home. I really want a forever home where I can be active and loved. Maybe you can provide that home for me?"
"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 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!"
"I am one of the sweetest guys you will ever meet! My hobbies include going on short walks around the block, sleeping for many many hours because who doesn’t love sleeping, getting belly rubs which I love sooooo much and showing my love and affection. I would love to make one of my hobbies to love my forever family!"
"I am an athlete at heart! If I am not performing cool pipes in my kennel I might be outside doing leaps and whirls on the leash. What can I say? I am a big and boisterous boy! I like other dogs, but I need to be matched with other dogs that play the same way. Needless to say, I am the right dog for an active family. I’m no couch potato. but I am an amusing and fun guy to have around."
"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!"
"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!"
"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!"
