"I am a very good boy that walks very well on a leash and I am very patient during obedience training! I have lots of energy and I'll need someone that can keep up with me. Enough chatting, let's go for a walk!"
"I am a bit shy and like to meet new friends slowly. I really was frightened about having my picture taken, but I tried to do my best because I really want a home and a family to love. Once I get comfortable with you, my sweet personality will come out and I can guarantee that you will love me as well."
"Hello! I am a happy-go-lucky kind of guy that loves to meet new people. I like to be on the go all the time, as I still have some puppy energy to me. I am the perfect walking/running buddy! I'll need someone that has the time to give me all of the physical and mental stimulation to keep me nice and well mannered. Please stop by and take me for a walk today!"
"Don't let the calm nanosecond during my photo fool you. You should see the countless others they took of my wiggly puppy self. I like my sign, which says "I love life and the sun and the fall leaves. Let's go out and play 'til the cows come home." I am not sure what cows are but the rest is certainly true. Come meet me soon!"
"Even though I am still a puppy, I have to admit I behave pretty well. I am fine with dressing up. I was Amelia Earhart for Halloween and I love to wear sweaters. You may also note that I posed perfectly for my photo. They took about six shots and they were all good. What I like best of all is just to be held and snuggle with my human besties."
"I’m a nice girl and like most hounds, I’m an explorer who loves to go for walks. I will curiously check out the whole area while I’m out for a walk. I’m very people-friendly and will make a great companion to my forever person. I’d prefer to be the only dog in my future home so that I can have all the attention on me and shower you with kisses! Let’s hang out so that we can get to know each other better and possibly become best friends!"
"Hi, I'm Alina! I'm a sweet and social girl that's ready for adventure. I love tasty treats and plush toys! I make a great walking partner who still knows how to chill on the couch. I'm good with most dogs and playful with kids. Come by and meet me!"
"I am an energetic young man who is ready for adventure! My breed is known for being spunky and smart. At around 4 months, I still have lots of growing to do. I will be 50+ pounds when I'm fully grown! I love water and playing with my toys. Stop by today to meet me. Can't wait!"
"Hi, I’m Walker! I’m told my name fits me perfectly cause boy do I LOVE to go on walks and not just play in a backyard type of deal. Actually, leash me up and let’s go explore! I’m a charming boy who enjoys a good chest and neck scratch. I would love to get to know you! How about you meet me at the Paul Jolly and ask the staff to take me out for a walk? I would LOVE that!"
"I appear relaxed and calm in my photo but I have to admit I was very nervous about the whole thing and got a bit jumpy when confronted with scarey things like bags of treats and the camera. I did sit and I looked at the person holding my leash but when you are new somewhere there is a lot to get used to. I promise if you take me home I will get used to you and your home and all that will go away. You have to admit I am quite a handsome boy."

"I’m a happy-go-lucky girl who wants to meet you! I love to give love and am a huge fans of treats. I walk pretty well on a leash, so why don’t you take me out and see my skills!"
"Howdy! I’m a very energetic girl who loves walks on the beach and attention. I love to smell everything on sight because I’m a very curious pup. If you think you’re the one for me, then why wait any longer, come meet me ASAP!"
"Would you like to meet a really nice guy who is also a good boy? I walk well on a leash and am old enough to have learned good manners in other ways. I’m curious and love to look around when I am out and about. I am so eager to meet people that sometimes a creep up a bit on the chain link of my run. You can’t blame me for having enthusiasm, can you? I’m a happy guy but I sure will be even happier when I have a home of my own. If it has dogs and cats, that will be probably be okay with me, too."
"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."
"Look at how handsome I am! I’m a young guy, and I think there’s still puppy in me with how energetic I am. I can’t help but feel so much joy when I’m out for a walk. So if you take me for a walk, be ready to hold on tight! I’m sure that I can eventually learn to be more calm on the leash. Right now, I’m just so happy to be out of my kennel and it shows. I will fit in great with an active family and will bring so much joy to a home. If you’re looking for an outgoing furry friend, then please visit me!"
"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!"
"Hi, I’m Charlie! I’m pretty right? I’m pretty on the inside too but you’ll need to give me some time to show you. I have to admit…I do better with the ladies than men, and older kiddos would be best for me. Someone spent a lot of time teaching me tricks during the time I had spent time in a home…adjusting to life in the shelter has made me a bit nervous. Come by and meet me and let’s see how things go!"
