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

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.)


Bruce, mastiff and Labrador retriever mix

Bruce is a male mastiff and Labrador retriever mix currently residing at the Humane Society of El Paso.

He's mastered his house-training etiquette, his vaccinations are up to date, and he is neutered.

Notes from Bruce's caretakers:

Bruce is very eager to meet everyone. Some people and other dogs might appreciate that kind of enthusiasm, and others might find it overbearing (especially dogs at a park). In fact, walks around the neighborhood might be better for him as opposed to the dog park. To ensure he's the right amount of energy and the perfect match for your home, a Meet-and-Greet with any dogs you own is required prior to adoption. Teenagers might be better suited to handle his zeal for life. Bruce would be happiest in a home that has a yard for exercise.
