"Hi guys! They call me Tatum! I am a fun friendly little guy who loves nothing more than to hang out with everyone. I love making new friends and having as many human pals as I can get! We should get to know each other better so we can become the best of friends!"
"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?"
"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!"
"Hi, I’m Dorothy! I’m friendly with people but can be a little shy. Especially when a camera is pointed at me because I’m definitely camera shy! I eventually get used to my people and here’s one tip— I love food! Just bring out some treats and I’ll become joyful! I do enjoy walks, playing with calm dogs, and rolling around on my back in the grass. I hope to find my person soon because just like Dorothy from Wizard of Oz would say, there’s no place like home. I really hope that my home can be with you!"
Little Lady
"I’m a sweet little old lady who would love to go home with you! We can watch the golden girls and relax if you would like. It is something that I know I will definitely enjoy. Let’s become best friends and spend all of our time with each other!"
"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!"
"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."
"Hi there! My name is Herby the Love Bug! Go ahead and tell me how much you love me, I’m all ears! They’re pretty big but I think it makes me look adorable! Don’t you think so too? I’m a charming, playful, goofy, and super curious little guy! I would love to go on adventures with you!"
“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.”

"Everyone at ADL keeps saying I’m friendly which makes me smile so so much my tail just wags like crazy when I get called adorable and cute! It’s such a great fuzzy feeling. I have an idea, how about we meet and enjoy a nice long walk. I would love to have a forever family to give me these compliments!"
"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!”
"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!"
“Hi, I’m Apple! I’m an adventure seeker! I love to play with rope toys and am playful around humans. I would love to find a home with a yard where I can run around and have someone around who’ll enjoy my silly antics. Can I be the apple of your eye? Please say yes!”
"Hello, hello, hello, hello! I’m Missy, the best gal you will ever meet. I am so excited to get to meet you and I will be even more excited if I get to see you in person near me! I am a very jolly and playful gal who loves to be goofy and always wants to have everyone smiling. We should definitely meet right now! Can’t wait till we hang around the doggie park and become a forever family."
"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!”
"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 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!”
"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?"
"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!"
