Interested in adopting a pet — or just gazing at some delightful doggies up for adoption? There are dozens of great dogs up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Omaha.

Animal shelters and pet rescue groups work hard to care for unhoused pets and connect them to loving homes. Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of dogs currently available for adoption.

(Details like pet availability, training, vaccinations and other features are based on data provided by Petfinder and may be subject to change; contact the shelter for the latest information.)

Roxy, German shorthaired pointer

Roxy is a winsome female German shorthaired pointer being kept at Great Plains Pointer Rescue.

Roxy loves other dogs. Great Plains Pointer Rescue, however, recommends she be placed in a home without small children. Have no fear: She's already house-trained, spayed and neutered.

Roxy's current caretakers say:

Roxy is a sweet little girl with a lot of energy, and will need another dog to play with. She loves to watch anything that moves in the yard, but is working on her basic obedience and recall. At night, she is ready to snuggle in for cuddles!

This little guy has perfect house manners and will make a wonderful, low-key companion for a lucky person. Cooper curls up on the bed and night and sleeps until you tell him it's time to get up. He's a happy guy who loves to cuddle and follows you from room to room.
