Adoptable Dogs!

Happy National Dog Day! I hear about adoptable dogs all the time.  I think it's becoming a bit of an occupational hazard.  I wish I could take all of them home with me, but, I'm pretty sure the cat would hire a hit-man if I brought another dog home.  So here are a few adoptable cuties from across the country, in case you or someone you know is looking for a four-legged friend.  

California - Alameda County/Contra Costa County  

Bodie is an adorable 9 week old girl.  She's a min pin mix, and is described by her caretakers as being "confident, smart, almost potty trained, and great with other dogs."

Paw Fund is a wonderful organization, whose primary purpose is to help people keep pets healthy and in their homes during financial hardships.  For more information, please check out Bodie's listing here or contact Paw Fund.  You can follow Paw Fund on Facebook here.

Illinois - Chicago

"Meyna is an extremely affectionate Shepherd mix in search of her forever home!  Visitors often notice her gorgeous coat and warm personality.  This gregarious girl loves people, and has been through lots of training with K9 University.  She knows her basic commands, would excel in agility classes, and is working on staying calm when out on walks.  Meyna is looking for an adopter who will continue her training, as this smart cookie really thrives on mental stimulation!  She will flourish in an adults-only home with a family who has some experience with dogs, ideally shepherds.  Meyna loves to run and play outside, but she is very mild-mannered in the home and likes to relax near her favorite people."

Colorado - Denver

From Front Range German Shepherd Rescue:  
"Dahlia is a smart girl. She loves people!!!! She has been in training and her trainer will continue several lessons with her new family for no cost. Dahlia has been in our care for quite a while and urgently needs a home of her own. Afterall, a boarding kennel is safe and secure, but it doesnt have the warmth and companionship of people to adore her! Dahlia prefers not to share her space with other dogs. Nor does she like to go to dog parks. Dahlia says" I just want someone to love me. I am a very friendly girl who loves to give kisses to people. I am affectionate and playful. They think I'm about 2 yrs old and right now I would prefer a home without other pets so I can have all the attention for myself" Although our dogs are "safe" , we have an urgent need to find homes for dogs that have been in our care for quite a while. Not having a home of their own increases their frustration...."

Texas - Austin

"We really can't put into words how much of a sweetheart Kain is. He loves all people big and small! He will just lay at your feet and enjoy all the petting you can dish out. He's a snuggler too, if he's invited to lay where you are. He has a bit of a prey drive, though, so houses with cats would not be a good fit for him."

New York - Rochester

Wooftown Rescue says:
"SKY is a beautiful 1 1/2 years old Australian Cattledog with one blue eye! She's shy at first, but once she sees you won't hurt her she is a sweetie pie. She loves back scratches and playing with other dogs, especially little ones!"
Sky is spayed, house trained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, but needs a no-cat home.  You can see her full listing here.

Those are some adorable dogs! I wish we had the resources to adopt more, but the two we have are sometimes more than we can handle :)
