Name Age Breed Sex Status
Bug 2Y 0M American Pit Bull Terrier mix Female Available

Hi out there!  My name is Bug, and I'm always in the mood for a good party: the more fun and games the better, I always say. I'm a high-energy girl who's ready to meet my new high-energy family. I'm certainly an affectionate girl, but I will not be happy sitting around all day. I like to play with other dogs, but you won't find me "friending" any cats on Facebook -- get the hint? No cats for me, please. Because of my activity level and my super strength (yes, I dream of being a superhero), I think it's best if children in my new home are at least 12 years old. Ready? Let the party begin!

Charlie 3Y 2M Minature Poodle Male Available

Hi there friends!  My name's Charlie and I'm here to tell you all about myself!  First off, I'm a very energetic guy and would do best in a home with an active lifestyle.  I really like other dogs, especially those that are around my size and would probably enjoy having a friend in the home.  I might be able to live with a cat as well.  It would be best if my new owners had experience with my breed because of my grooming needs.  We don't want this beautiful hair to get matted!  Children in my new home can be of almost any age though it would be best if they had experience with lively dogs like me.  If a spunky, fun-loving dog is who you're searching for, than look no further, here I am!

Coco 2Y 8M American Staffordshire Terrier Mix Female Available

Don't you just love my headband?  I do!  I could wear it all day long.  It seems to make people smile when I wear it, and I really like making people happy.  I've been told I have a silly personality as well and can be a bit of a goofball.  I like pretending I'm smaller than I actually am and will try to sit in people's laps.  That always gets a good laugh too.  Since I'm still unaware of how big I am, children in my new home should be at least 8 years old.  I can probably live with another playful dog, but no cats please!  They don't enjoy my outgoing personality as much.  If you're looking for a good laugh, or maybe someone to get matching costumes with, I'm your girl!

Ellie 10Y 4M Shepherd mix Female Available

I'm a sweet, gentle girl searching for a home where I can spend my golden years.  I really like being near people, and would much rather be in the company of my humans than play with toys.  When I get comfortable with you, I will happily ask for a belly rub.  I can be easily startled, especially with hands around my face so I think it would be best if children in my new home were at least 12 years old and had experience with dogs.  I could probably live with another calm dog and possibly a cat as well.  If you're looking for a calm, loving dog, stop by soon and say hi! 

Lola 5Y 0M Retriever Mix Female Available

I'm a happy, go lucky girl searching for a nice family to settle down with.  I'm very friendly with just about anyone I meet, whether they be human, dog, or cat.  I L-O-V-E love playing with toys.  I'm really good at fetch and could probably play all day long.  I also really like to go exploring (on leash of course).  After a long day of playing and exercise I would be happy to curl up next to you, or maybe even on your lap if you let me.  Stop by soon to say hello!

Lupita 3Y 0M American Pit Bull Terrier mix Female Available

I'm a very outgoing girl on the search for my next great adventure!  I am very active and will need a family dedicated to getting me the mental and physical stimulation that I need.  Playing fetch is one of my all time favorite things to do!  I could spend all day running around outside.  I really enjoy playing with other dogs but can be very picky about my friends.  I prefer male dogs who are more rough and tumble in their play style.  I cannot however live with cats as I am too energetic.  Children in my new home need to have experience with dogs and be in their upper teens.  Because of my energy level and need for training, it would be best if my new owners had experience with my breed.  I can't wait for you to stop by and maybe we can play a game of fetch? 

Marta 7Y 0M Beagle mix Female Available

So what do you want to talk about?  Movies, television, food?  Oh I know, we can talk about me, that's my favorite topic after all.  The first and most important thing you should know is that I LOVE to talk.  I shouldn't live in an apartment or town home (or anywhere with shared walls) because your neighbors might not like my chattiness.  I do enjoy playing with toys on occasion, but I have to be in the mood.  I also really like going for walks and being outside.  I might be OK living with a calm dog but no cats please!  Children in my new home can be younger, but need to have experience with dogs.  Stop by soon, I would love to tell you more about myself! 

Pippin 2Y 0M Chihuahua Male Available

Don't let my size fool you, I am a very active little guy.  I'm always on the move and looking for new friends.  I get along well with most other dogs and would probably enjoy having a dog friend in my new home.  After a day of running around, I can be quite the cuddler and will gladly climb into your lap.  I could probably live with cat and children in my new home should be at least 5 years old.  If I sound like I would fit in with your family, stop by and ask to meet Pippin!

Rufus 10Y 0M Pug Male Adopted!

I'm looking for someone that recognizes the joys and riches of adopting a senior pet.  I'm definitely not as high maintenance as a puppy, but don't think that I'm not active!  I enjoy playing with toys and going for walks as much as the next dog.  You might be able to tell from my picture that I'm a touch overweight, but with the proper diet and exercise routine I'll be fit in no time!  I get along with most other dogs and am fairly casual with cats too.  Do you have room for a loving senior dog?  If so, I just might be the perfect match for you! 


Sonya 8Y 0M Jack Russell Terrier Female Available

Hi there, my name's Sonya and I just can't wait to meet you!  I love meeting new people and greet everyone with a smile and a tail wag.  I am a very busy little girl and my new family will need to be dedicated to keeping me active.  I like all kinds of toys, including balls, frisbees, and squeaky toys.  I've lived with both dogs and cats before, but I prefer my dog friends to be similar in size to me.  Children in my new home can be any age.  If you're looking for a sweet and silly dog to add to your family, stop by and meet me soon!

Sorella 5Y 0M German Shepherd / Retriever Mix Female Available

Did somebody say walk?  I love going for walks!  I could walk all day!  I'm a gentle girl and pretty easy to handle if I say so myself.  I am nervous when first meeting new people, but I warm up pretty quick.  I enjoy a good scratch behind the ears and also like playing with toys. I get along with most other dogs and could probably live with a dog-savvy cat as well.  Children in my new home should be a little older since I do have a shy personality.  If you're looking for a good walking partner than stop in soon and ask to meet me!

Stephie 0Y 7M Cattle Dog Mix Female Available

What a girl like me needs is a very patient family who will understand my shy and sensitive personality.  Everyone at NAHS has been very nice to me and I am slowly getting more confident in myself.  My new family will need to be dedicated to continuing this growth so that I can be my best self.  I do enjoy the company of other dogs, so long as they are not too exuberant, and would do best if there are other dogs in my new home.  I might be able to live with a cat as well.  I would really like if there was someone home the majority of the day to help give me positive social experiences.  Children need to be in their upper teens and have experience with dogs.
