Abigail 7Y 1M Rat Terrier Female Available

I'm a friendly and social girl, found stray by local animal control and transferred to NAHS. As you might be able to tell from my picture, one of my eyes was removed, and I can't see out of the other one, so this has been a bit of a rollercoaster adventure for me. Everyone has been so nice to me and I can't wait to have a family and home to call my own! And don't worry, even though I'm blind, I am still really good at finding treats. I also enjoy playing with people and might be ok living with another calm dog or cat. Children in my new home need to be at least 16 since I do startle easily and am not a fan of being restrained. I'm ready for my next adventure in my new home, could it be with you?

Arlene 8Y 4M Chihuahua mix Female Available

I may be small, but don't let that fool you, I'm a very energetic and agile girl! I absolutely love to play with toys. The squeakier the better I always say! I also really enjoy attention and prefer to play with people than by myself. I do need to be the one and only pet in the home. What can I say, I'm a bit of an attention hog. Children in my new home should be at least 12 years old because I can be a bit rough when playing. Stop by soon and say hi!

Bam Bam 5Y 0M Miniature Schnauzer / Poodle mix Male Available

I'm an adventurous dog who leaves no stone unturned.  I enjoy making new friends and can be very playful with other dogs so I might enjoy having another one in my new home.  I could possibly even live with a cat as well.  I do have a lot to say, especially when I start playing with toys.  Did I mention I love playing with toys?  Because I do.  It's probably one of my favorite things.  I do need to have regular grooming to keep me looking this handsome so make sure you're prepared for those extra expenses.  I can't wait for you to come play with me!

Bo 3Y 7M American Staffordshire Terrier mix Male Available

You know what makes me happy? A good squeaky toy that I can play with. Sometimes I just like to carry it in my mouth and squeak it for a while. Other things I enjoy are long walks (I walk great on a leash!), running, and playing tug. I'm very smart and know a few basic commands, but I'm willing to learn more! Because I like to be the center of attention, I do need to be the only pet in the home and children should be at least 8 years old. Hurry on in and ask to see me, I'll be waiting right here!

Hugo 2Y 0M American Pit Bull Terrier/American Bulldog mix Male Available

Are you looking for a fun-loving goofball to add to your family? Well your search is over because here I am! I'm sure to be the life of any party I go to and love being the center of attention. I am very high energy and will need someone home the majority of the day to make sure I get the proper amount of exercise I need. I have some basic obedience training but am ready and willing to learn more! I do get along with most other dogs but I cannot live with cats. Children in my new home should be at least 12 years old. If I sound like your new best friend, hurry on in!

Lia 8Y 0M Shetland Sheepdog/Beagle mix Female Available

Do you have a treat? I love treats. I already know where all the treats in the shelter are, I'm just that good! That's probably the beagle in me. I'm also very talkative, like most beagles. I talk when the doorbell rings, when the mailman comes, pretty much whenever someone comes to the house. What can I say, I just want to make sure you know we have visitors. That being said, an apartment or condo with shared walls might not be the best. Other things I like include being outside, going for walks, and cuddling up with my people. I'm might be ok living with a calmer dog and possibly a cat as well. Children in my new home should be at least 8 years old. Oh, and I do need to be on special diet but don't worry, I eat that right up! If I sound like your new companion, hurry on in and ask to see me!

Louie 0Y 7M Doberman Pinscher mix Male Available

I'm a sensitive soul who loves to be around people.  I've got the 'doberman lean' down pat, just watch my video!  But just because I'm super affectionate doesn't mean I'm not super active.  I love playing with toys and will need lots of exercise and training, I am still a puppy after all!  As hard as it is to believe, I do still have a bit of growing to do, so make sure you're prepared to take cat of a large dog.  I might be able to live with another dog and could possibly live with a cat as well.  Children in my new home should be at least 12 years old.  I can't wait for you to come say hi to me!

Luke Bryan 0Y 8M Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix Male Available

Hey, I'm a country man living life up here in the big city. All my friends say I'm a very active, very friendly pup. I will need to be kept active, lots of long walks and playtime are a must for me. I love playing with other dogs that are active like I am and would enjoy having someone to play with in my new home. I might be able to live with cat too. Children in my new home should be at least 12 years old since I'm still a puppy and working on my manners. I am very goofy and am sure to always make you smile! If you're looking for a guy like me you better move quick 'cuz I'm in high demand!

Oscar 11Y 4M Beagle mix Male Available

It's awards season and isn't it everyones dream to have an Oscar? While I may not be gold and shiny, I've been told I'm pretty great. I have a very mellow personality, but I can also be very curious, I am a beagle after all! Speaking of being a beagle, I am true to my breed and can be very vocal. So I probably shouldn't live anywhere with shared walls (ie apartments, condos, etc.). I enjoy going for walks but would much prefer to spend my time relaxing. I need to be the only dog but could possibly live with a cat. Children in my new home can be of almost any age, but it would be best if they understood that I need my alone time sometimes. If I sound like the dog for you, start practicing your acceptance speech and stop by soon!

Pringle 1Y 4M Terrier mix Male Available

Isn't it true that no two chips are alike? Well I can guarantee you won't find another dog quite like me! I can be very shy and nervous when first meeting new people and going to new places. My new family will need to be patient and understand and able to give me the time I need to adjust. But don't worry, once I'm comfortable I am just as playful and curious as they come! I can be quiet the busy body. My new owners will need to have experience with dogs, preferably ones that can be fearful like myself and children should be at least 16 years old. I get along with some other dogs but no cats for me! If you think you have space in your heart for a sweet and energetic boy like me, stop by soon and say hi!

Sammi 7Y 0M Shepherd mix Female Available

I'm a dog that loves to be loved!  I hope you don't mind when big dogs sit on your lap, because that's what I'm going to do if I get the chance.  I'm very friendly when meeting new people, so if you have an active home with lots of visitors I wouldn't mind one bit!  I'll greet each one with a tail wag and hope to get a belly rub in return.  While I would probably be happiest as an only pet,  I might be OK living with another dog about my size.  However I cannot live with cats.  If you're ready to welcome a sweet senior into your home, come on in a meet me!

Zoey 3Y 0M Terrier mix Female Available

I'm a sweet and friendly dog looking for a quiet home to call my own. I can be a little nervous when first meeting new people but give me a treat or two and we'll be friends in no time. I also really like to play with squeaky toys so maybe when you come meet me we can play fetch? I really don't like to be left alone so it would be best if someone was home the majority of the day. I might be able to live with cats, but I would be happiest as the only dog in your life.
