"Some of us just need someone to let us know that everything will be okay. I’m one of those dogs. I’m a shy girl and I’m especially camera shy. I’m hoping that I can find someone who will be willing to let me warm up to them and be their buddy. Is their room in your heart for a shy sweet dog like me? I hope so! Please give me a chance to be your friend."
"I’m a happy-go-lucky dachshund mix, outgoing and affectionate, with a wag of the tail and a nice kiss for everyone I meet. I’m very active and love to play with dogs and kids. I insist on checking out everything in reach (and some that aren’t). I know the sit command and I walk pretty well on the leash when I’m not too excited. I’d make an ideal pet for just about anyone, but especially for you. Yes, you!"
"Look into my eyes…you are getting sleepy…you will come visit me….you will adopt me…FOREVER! I am more than ready to find a forever home! Come by and meet me to see how well we get along!"
"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!"
"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 Disney. I was brought to ADL from Best Friends Animal Society who was working with ADL to transfer Hurricane Harvey pets into the shelter. Now I’m here and ready to find my forever home. I am a nervous kitty! Please go slow with me when we meet. I’m waiting for a special person who’ll give a shy kitty like me a chance to be loved forever. If you think you can be that special person for me, then please consider giving me a chance!
"Hello everyone, I’m Ranger. I keep hearing from humans around me that I am not a common dog. I suppose it’s my eyes? Maybe it’s my fur or large stature? Either way, it makes me feel rather happy to feel unique and special! I currently have a breathing issue so the great people at ADL take me out for walks on this contraption they call a harness. I am an older guy but I still crave lots of love and attention. Will you be the one to give me lots of love and my forever home!"
"Hi, I’m Gregory! I am a ball of fun! I love to play with every dog I meet and I smile for everyone. I will smother you in kisses and cuddles. It is recommended that I go to a home with no children. I love the attention! Please meet me and let’s go for a walk."
"Hi! Look let’s get one thing straight, I am not judging you, alright? This is just my face! I am told that I can be a bit sassy but I promise you’ll love me. Just remember, I’m not judging you! I would love to have a forever home to lounge around and be the sassiest cool cat in the house!"
"I’m a very active boy and you won’t see me stay still for long. I like playing, and I enjoy dogs and kids over 12. I do have a problem with a disc in my back and that means I shouldn’t play rough or jump from high surfaces. But so far I haven’t had any trouble, and I plan to keep it that way. I would love to go home with you and be spoiled and loved."

"No, I am not a bear, I’m just Lloyd the handsome chow chow mix. I was brought to ADL due to Hurricane Harvey and now I’m ready to find a forever home! My handsome bear-ish looks get me a lot of attention. Most people have the urge to give me a big ol’ hug because I look like a big cuddly bear, but please, take it easy with me! I am deaf and don’t have the best eye sight, so it’s very easy to startle me. I also prefer to not have my neck touched. It’s just not my thing! Since children like to hug, I prefer a home with no children. Overall, I am a friendly old man. I also enjoy slow strolls in the park and I like treats. I’m looking for a calm home where I can relax and be loved. I would probably be okay with a little dog sibling too, one who is as calm as me. Do you think you can be that special person for me? Then come by and visit me!"
"Hi, I’m Salsa! Don’t worry, I’m not spicy like salsa. In fact, I’m a calm and cordial type of lady. Isn’t my hair elegant? I keep up with grooming it often to make sure it stays looking luxurious. However, I wouldn’t mind someone brushing it every now and then for me. You know what I like? I like to sit on laps and relax. You know what I would love? To find a forever home of my own where I will be loved by my person. If I sound like your type of floofy companion, then please visit me soon!"
"I don’t want to hear no Lip about it, but I’m the best dog here! I’m one cool dude. Before I came to the Animal Defense League I injured my leg and I have a fracture that is healing well. I’ve got a lot to offer someone so you should come get me today before someone else does."
"I may not be a famous chemist who devised the periodic table but I’m pretty special. I’m a Hurricane Harvey dog. That means that the Animal Defense League traveled to the shelter I was in looking for a home before the storm and brought me back to find a home in San Antonio. I’ve got to say I feel like an SA dog and now I just need my forever home to come find me!"
“Hi, I’m Frappe! I’m pretty shy and timid. I want to be adopted but I’m very observant. Someday maybe someday a family could take me some and care for me.”
"Hi, I’m Bruiser! I enjoy going for walks and exploring the outdoors. I’ve recently learned that I also enjoy riding in cars too. I’ve been told that I’m sweet, and I’m sure you’ll agree after you meet me. I’m the type of dog that’ll lean on you and give you kisses on your cheek!"

"Such a sweet name – I must be a delicate little dog who enjoys sitting daintily on your lap while you sip tea, right? Wrong! I am little, but delicate? Not a chance! They call me “spunky,” which means I can’t sit still for a second. I want to be playing or kissing or rolling in the grass or chasing bugs or finding mischief. That’s what life’s all about! If I came to live with you, I’d bring my sense of joy with me and we would have a grand time together."
"I love being in the company of humans! I also love being around cats! I feel a little sad without a feline companion by my side. That’s why I’m looking for the perfect home where I can have a cat friend that will keep me company. I especially prefer a feline friend that is more calm and will enjoy cuddling with me. I’m always ready for some pets, love and attention from people! I LOVE head rubs, back rubs, and snuggling. Now I just need to find a forever home where I can get plenty of that from both humans and another cat! Please visit me to see how sweet I can be!"
"When you come to my kennel, I’ll happily run to the door and greet you with wags and enthusiasm, overflowing with happiness and friendliness. But when staff takes me out to meet you, you’ll hardly recognize the shy, reluctant dog at the end of the leash. I don’t remember what happened before I came here, but I’m just so scared that it takes a long time for me to trust people. I don’t have an ounce of meanness in me – I just need someone with patience to wait for me to be ready to share my love. When that time comes, I enjoy cuddling and I’m as sweet as can be. If you have the time, the rewards are great – I promise!"
"A born leader I set the standard for American Stafford Terriers. I’m fun, friendly and well-behaved. I even sit for treats and I love attention. The only invading being done around here is me into your heart and I won’t surrender until you come get me!"
