Bugsy 1Y 6M Hound/Retriever mix Male Available

I am a super playful and excitable young boy. I really enjoy toys, taking long walks, going for runs, and playing with other dogs. I have a lot of energy to burn, and I need a family to help me do just that. I do know some basic commands, but I've heard other dogs talk about going to obedience training classes, and I think I'd like to do that. It's fun to show off and let others know how smart I am. I can be rowdy and play a little rough sometimes, so I think children in my new home should be at least 12 years old. I like most other dogs, and I might be able to live with a cat, too. One more thing... I don't like to be left alone for long periods of time. If I sound like I might be the dog for you, don't waste any more time -- Visit soon!

Calico 1Y 9M Treeing Walker Coonhound mix Female Available

I'm a sweet, gentle girl looking for a family to call my own. I really like to be by people and will let you know when I want attention. I can also be pretty rambunctious, so I'll need a lot of exercise, both physical and mental. Obedience training would be a great way to strengthen our bond, and I think I would be good at it since I love treats! I like most other dogs and would probably enjoy living with one, but I cannot live with cats. It would be good if children in my new home are at least 8 years old and dog-experienced. I can't wait for you to come by and meet me!

Cameron 0Y 5M Rat Terrier Mix Male Available

Curious and energetic puppy here!  And you know what that means, I'll need a lot of training.  I am also very dependent on people, and don't like to be left alone for too long.  My new family needs to be dedicated to getting me the proper socialization that I need.  I like most other dogs, and might like having a playmate in my new home, but no cats please!  Children should have experience with dogs too.  Don't hesitate to come see me!

Carrie 0Y 9M Australian Shepherd Mix Female Available

I traveled a long way from Oklahoma and am still a little nervous to be here.  Everyone has been very nice to me since I've arrived and I am starting to get more comfortable and confident in myself.  I will need a family that will be patient with me and continue to build my confidence.  Because of this, children in my new home should have experience with dogs.  I like most other dogs but cannot live with cats.

Jeter 1Y 1M American Pit Bull Terrier mix Male Available

I was found wondering the streets of Chicago and when nobody claimed me, came to NAHS in search of my forever home.  I love to snuggle and be as close to you as possible.  I'm still working on my manners, so obedience training would really be helpful.  I also really enjoy playing with toys and meeting new people.  I might be able to live with another dog and possibly a cat too.  Am I the guy you've been searching for?  Don't hesitate to find out!

Layla 1Y 4M Hound/Retriever mix Female Available in foster home

What a dog like me needs is patience, time, and a lot of love.  I traveled here in hopes of finding my forever home, but the shelter environment was very stressful for me.  Lucky for me, someone was nice enough to bring me into their home and foster me so I can grow and learn in a calm environment.  My foster mom says that I am a sweet and loving dog, and that I am becoming more comfortable each day.  Although I am trying very hard, I am still an extremely shy dog and my new owners will need to be dedicated to helping me get the proper socialization I need.  Because I am very nervous, children in my home should be at least 16 years or older.  Having another calm, but playful dog in my new home might be good for me and might help me come out of my shell...after all, I'm enjoying playing with my two new doggie friends in my foster home!  Would you like to give me a chance?

*Layla is in a foster home.  If you are interested in meeting her, please call the shelter at 630-420-8989*
