Adult dogs available for adoption

 

Latte

Chihuahua mix

Female

2 yrs.

 

Latte

 

I'm Latte and I am a sweet little girl who loves to hang out with my humans. I have been good with cats. I do kind of like to chase them but they are bigger than me. They told me they weren't dogs but I didn't believe them. I am potty trained, play nice with doggies and ride really well in the car. I can't wait to have a home I can call my own.

 

Africa

Black Mouth Curr / Lab mix

Female

2 yrs.

 

Africa

 

This is sweet Africa! She loves people, completely housebroken, and is kid, cat and dog friendly. She was rescued from our local animal shelter within hours of being put down! Please give Africa a second chance - you will not regret it!

 

Denny

Shepherd / Rottweiler mix

Male

3 yrs.

 

Denny

 

Meet Denny. With his adorable crooked nose, he can be a little unsure of new people at first but warms up quickly with the right introduction. He loves to run in the yard and play with toys. He knows obedience commands and is eager to please. If you want someone who will cuddle with you but still want that play time, Denny is the dog for you! Denny is cat-friendly and kid-friendly. This great boy would do well in a home with a large yard to run and play. He gets along with other dogs but needs to be introduced properly, so come meet this sweet boy and take him home today.

 

Dolly

Female

Mastiff mix

2 yrs.

 

Dolly

 

Here's Dolly! I am the most beautiful girl in the whole world. I am looking for my very own forever home and I don't mind saying, I like to be wherever you are. I like the other doggies but I admit to being a bit of a cat chaser. I like toys, ride super well in the car and fear nothing. Meet me today!

 

Lacy

English Bulldog

Female

18 mos.

 

Lacy

 

This is Lacy. She has a great disposition and is a sweet cuddly girl. She was rescued off the street in November 15 lbs underweight and starving for love and attention. She gets along great with kids and other dogs and cats. She currently lives with three kids under 6 and is calm and loving towards them all. She is potty trained and crate trained. Lacy loves to run and play outside and can jump a 5 ft fence. Lacy is up to date on shots, spayed, microchipped, HW negative, and currently on heart worm and flea/tick prevention.

 

Claus

Schnauzer

Male

8+ yrs.

 

Claus

 

Claus is a beautiful Schnauzer, inside and out. He is almost totally blind, but still is quite independent. He goes outside to potty and loves to explore the back yard. He is very affectionate, loving to be pet and talked to. Claus is Heartworm positive and is currently doing very well on his treatment. After completion of treatment, Claus will be neutered. Claus would do best in a home without little children. Being blind, it is important not to have a lot of change in the house, i.e. toys laying around, furniture being moved, etc. Claus would do best as an only dog.

See Claus in action!

 

Holly

Terrier

Female

10 + yrs.

 

Holly

 

Hi, I'm Holly. I was found in a field. I am on the older side but as sweet as can be. I am potty trained and can't hear much but I still deserve a home of my own. I am somewhat fragile, so I need a home with no little children. I don't have an adoption fee, they just want me to feel what it's like to live in a safe and loving home.

 

Vader

Akita mix

Male

Young adult

 

Vader

 

Hi, my name is Vader. Me and my brother, Koda, had been roaming the streets for a long time before we were rescued. Someone had even put rosary beads on us. We kept coming into PetSmart during adoption events asking to be rescued. So For The Love of Strays took us in. Now I want a forever home. I'm a sweet, submissive boy who loves to be petted. I'm good with other dogs and kids. Won't you take me home today?

 

Koda

Akita mix

Male

Young adult

 

Koda

 

Hi, I'm Koda! Me and my brother, Vader, had been roaming the streets for a long time before we were rescued. Someone had even put rosary beads on us. We kept coming into PetSmart during adoption events asking to be rescued. So For The Love of Strays took us in. Now I want a forever home. I like to boss Vader around and be the top dog! I also love to play with kids.

 

Thelma

Terrier / Lab mix

Female

2 yrs.

 

Thelma

 

I'm Thelma and me and my buddy Louise were rescued by a Home Depot in Calallen.  She was hurt pretty bad but I protected her good.  Now I am looking for my forever home so I can protect and love you.

 

Athena

Pit mix

Female

2 yrs.

 

Athena

 

I'm Athena and I am a sweet little girl. I wanna cuddle and go for walks. Come on out to meet me.

 

Rosie

Chihuahua mix

Female

6 yrs.

 

Rosie

 

Meet Rosie. She is 6 - 7 years old, fully housebroken and has nice indoor manners. She does fine with other dogs but would really like to be the only dog. She tolerates children but would love being with a mature person or couple who just want a companion.

Rosie hasn't had a great life in the last couple of years. She belonged to an elderly woman who became ill and eventually died. They lived a very quiet life and when the woman died, Rosie was left behind in an empty home with just a neighbor coming by to give her food, water and potty breaks for several months. When she was finally rescued she was isolated from everything by being kept in a backyard while a decision was made to send her to Animal Control to be put down. Luckily for Rosie she was rescued by a very nice dog angel/woman and was then brought to me to foster.

Rosie has problems in trusting people. She is afraid of being alone and will run and hide whenever someone comes in. Rosie is a loving dog when she finally accepts and trusts you. Are you the angel that will give her the time she needs to learn to love again?

 

Bacon

Husky mix

Male

1 yr.

 

Bacon

 

I'm Bacon and I was one of the doggies rescued off Archer Street. Ten other dogs were rescued with me. I can be nervous while meeting new people but once I know I can trust you, you will have a new best friend. I am amazing with other dogs, people, and kids when properly introduced. I love to run around playing fetch.

 

Selah

Min Pin / Dachshund mix

Female

2 yrs.

 

Selah

 

I'm Selah, meaning "beautiful song" in Egyptian. I am a loving girl who is really good with kids. I play like a puppy and even do well with cats. I am blind in one eye and have a little trouble with the other but you would never know it. Can you keep up with me? Come meet me and find out.

 

Angie

Pointer/Pit mix

Female

Angie

 

I'm Angie and I am the sweetest girl you could ever meet. I am currently being a momma but keep your eyes peeled, I will be ready for adoption at the end of April.

 

Emily

Terrier/Heeler mix

Female

2 yrs.

 

Emily

 

I'm Emily and I am a quiet little girl. I would be great in an apartment or home. I like cats, dogs and little humans, too. I get to play with a toddler and a baby every day now. I'm potty trained and love to cuddle.

 

Simba

Pit Bull

Male

1 yr.

 

Simba

 

Simba is a great dog with a absolutely wonderful personality. He is great with other dogs except Chihuahuas or other small, nippy dogs. He loves to play and have attention. His adoption fee covers up to date shots, current on HW and flea/tick prevention, microchip and neuter. He is waiting for a furever home to call his own.

 

Eli

Gray Pit Bull

Male

Approx. 2 yrs.

 

Eli

 

Eli is a male, gray pit bull. He can be a little domineering but really is a big sweetheart. He will do anything to get your attention and is higly motivated to learn all kinds of neat tricks. Eli was mistreated so we have been working very hard to teach him to trust. He has made a ton of progress in this area but could use a little polishing up. Eli would do well in any situation as long as someone is willing to take the time to build that trust with him. He is a very devoted dog and will do anything to make you happy. He is very clear on communicating his needs. He loves to talk (grrr's and woofs all of the time, especially when playing). He sounds ferocious but he really is a big baby. Eli will definitely let you know if he neds to go potty, wants to play or is ready to eat. Eli is potty trained.

 

Abbie

Pit mix

Female

2 yrs.

 

Abby

 

Hi, I'm Abbie. I have been with For the Love of Strays for a long time now. I am not sure why I havn't found my furever home. I am a sweet, devoted, loyal girl. I need to find a home where someone is around most of the time. A retired person or a work-at-home person because I get anxious when I am left alone until I can trust you. I love to cuddle and give kisses. I would love to have a teenager or active adult to play with. I am good with children and adults . I like little dogs if they are submissive. I do not get along with larger dogs. I like to chase cats but I am not allowed to. I am house trained and really, really want my furever home with a yard to play in and a guardian to call my own. My adoption fee has been sponsored. My guardians do require a home check.

 

Hippie

Pit mix

Female

 

Hippie

 

Hippie was reported on Craigslist as an injured dog living as a stray in a park and in need of help. It was July 4th and one of our volunteers just couldn’t stop thinking about her. A group was organized and preparing to chase her down. Little did we know that she was more than willing to come right up to her rescuers with lots of kisses.

X-rays revealed that her pelvis was crushed on both sides. She was very skinny and had heartworm disease. She underwent surgery to fix only a portion of her injuries, the rest of which must be left to heal on their own. The healing process was long and challenging work for her foster family but she remained such a joy to everyone around her. Hippies's body will always be crippled but her heart is full of love.

Ecco
