Arlene 8Y 0M 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!

Brutus 9Y 6M Beagle / Terrier mix Male Available

I have really opened up since coming to NAHS. I used to be shy and timid and now I'm getting more comfortable so my outgoing personality is coming out. I still might be a little nervous when going to a new place, so my new family will need to be understanding that it might take some time for me to get comfortable with them and my new living situation. One quick way to becoming my friend is to take me for a walk. I love being outside and get very excited whenever I see a leash. I think I would be happiest in a quiet home with no young children and no other dogs. I could possibly live with a dog-savvy cat though. One last thing about me, I don't have any teeth. This doesn't stop me from eating, though it does have to be soft food. If a sweet senior is what you're looking for to complete your family, stop by soon!

*Brutus is currently in foster home.  If you are interested in meeting him, please call the shelter at 630-420-8989

Buddy 1Y 0M Rhodesian Ridgeback / American Pit Bull Terrier mix Male Available

I'm an outgoing, fun-loving, goofball looking to have a good time.  I am still very puppy-ish in my mannerisms so my new family will need to make sure to take me to obedience classes.  I already know some basic commands but would love to learn more!  It will also help keep my mind busy and out of trouble.  I enjoy playing with other dogs, but I do play rough, so if there is another dog in my new home it would be best if they had a similar play style.  I cannot live with cats and children need to be at least 16 years old.  So if an active dog is what you're searching for, stop by soon and ask to meet me!

Cora 9Y 2M Shepherd mix Female Available

I'm a sensitive and gentle girl who is a little nervous to be here. Having my sister Kaia with me has helped and I am definitely more comfortable when she is around. We have been together our entire lives and need to go to our new home together as well. Like my sister I enjoy playing with all different types of toys, including balls, frisbees, and squeaky toys. I also like playing games like fetch and tug. I have lived with other dogs and cats before so having them in my new home should be fine. Because I can be a little shy at first it would be best if children were at least 5 years old. So if you're looking for 2 great girls to add to your family, stop by soon and say hi!

Daphne 2Y 0M American Pit Bull Terrier mix Female Available

I'm a pretty active girl searching for a family that's willing and able to keep up with me!  There's always somewhere to be, things to sniff, and new dogs to meet!  I love meeting new dogs and making friends, but I've been told I can come on a little strong, so not all dogs love to meet me.  I'm a smart girl and already know some basic commands, but I could definitely use to learn some more and I would love if we could go to obedience class together!  I might even excel in specialized training like agility or fly ball.  Did I mention I love toys?  I could play fetch all day long!  Because of my exuberant personality, it would be best if children in my new home were at least 12 years old or had experience with excitable dogs.  Stop by soon and see how much fun I am!

Ebony 0Y 9M Retriever / Terrier mix Female Available

Wanna race? I'm always ready to run! How about play with a toy? I'm really good at fetch! What about obedience training? I'm really smart and ready to learn! As you can probably tell, I'm a very energetic girl looking for a family who will be willing to be as active as I am! I am still working on my manners, so obedience training is a must for me. And they say mental stimulation is just as good, if not better than physical. I really enjoy playing with other dogs, but they don't always like me. I can play a little rough so if there is another dog in my new home, they need to be as playful as me. Once I'm tired out from playing, I do love to cuddle. Either on a soft bed, next to you, or on top of you, I enjoy being with people. I actually like being around people so much that it would be best if there was someone home with me for the majority of the day. Children in my new home should be at least 12 years old and I cannot live with cats. If you're looking for a dog that's full of life, stop by soon and ask if we can play. Ready, Set, Let's Go!

Kaia 9Y 2M Shepherd mix Female Available

You know what's great about adopting a senior dog? I don't get all hyped up about every little thing. I'm more of a relaxed, go with the flow kind of girl. Don't get me wrong, I can still play with the best of them. I enjoy playing with all sorts of toys including balls, squeaky toys and tug toys. But I also know how great it is to spend the day relaxing on a nice warm bed. I've lived with all different types of animals including other dogs and cats. Speaking of other dogs, my sister Cora is here as well and we need to go into our new home together. We do everything together, we eat together, sleep together, go on walks together, you get the idea. It would probably be best if children in my new home were at least 5 years old. Hurry on in and see for yourself how great I am!

Moose 1Y 10M American Pit Bull Terrier mix Male Available

Before you ask, no I don't weigh 1000 pounds. In fact, I'd consider myself to be medium to large size, but I guess it depends on who you're asking. One thing I am though is very loving. Some of my favorite activities include meeting new people and snuggling up with them once we've become friends. And let me tell you, it doesn't take long for that to happen! I'm a pretty active guy who likes going for walks and playing with toys. I can get a bit rowdy when I play so children in my new home need to be at least 12 years old. I would also be happiest as an only pet, but I promise I have enough love to give that you won't need anyone else! Oh, and one last thing, I don't see things very well. In fact, I'm completely blind in one eye, and have very limited vision in the other. As you can probably tell, I don't let that slow me down too much. So if you're looking dog that's fun, goofy, and full of life, then stop by the shelter and ask to see me!

Pringle 0Y 11M 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 think I would be happiest as the only pet in your life. If you think you have space in your heart for a sweet and energetic boy like me, stop by soon and say hi!
