Interested in adopting a pet — or just gazing at some adorable pups near you up for adoption? There are dozens of endearing puppies up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Minneapolis.

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 puppies 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.)


Eve, shepherd and Labrador retriever mix

Eve is a darling female shepherd and Labrador retriever puppy being kept at Pet Haven Inc. of Minnesota.

Eve plays well with others — she'll get along great with children, dogs and cats. She has been vaccinated.

From Eve's current caretaker:

Meet sweet and playful Eve. She is a 10-week-old lovable pup who is looking for a home to shower her with love and affection, especially in the form of belly rubs. While Eve loves receiving affection, she is also great at giving it. She has a blast playing with other dogs, attempting to convince the cats to play and snuggling up with kids. Eve is the epitome of an active puppy – she loves to play and run! She would love to have a fenced-in yard to roam around in and help burn off some of that energy. When she is all tired out, she can be found snuggled up right next to you for a nap.

Blu, pit bull terrier and mastiff mix

Blu is a darling male pit bull terrier and mastiff puppy currently residing at UnbreakaBULL Pit Bull Rescue.

Blu has been vaccinated.

From Blu's current caretaker:

Blu is just a little man at the moment, but he is going to be a decent-sized boy when he grows up. Right now, he is just four months old. He was loved by the people with whom he lived, but then they were told that the city that they lived in wouldn't accept his breed, and they had to surrender him. He is all puppy, so he is learning all the new things that come with being a puppy! He is doing well on going to the bathroom outside, and he is also learning to stay quietly in his crate. He loves to play, loves other dogs and just loves people!

Balto, husky and shepherd mix

Balto is a charming male husky and shepherd puppy currently housed at Pet Haven Inc. of Minnesota.

Balto loves to socialize, and he loves other dogs. He's vaccinated.

Notes from Balto's caretakers:

Balto is a shy sweetheart who cannot wait to find his forever home! He is a two-month-old pup who enjoys playing with soft fabric toys and tug ropes. Balto is shy at first, but once he warms up to you and his surroundings, he is a playful and curious little guy. Still in the puppy stage of life, housetraining is a work in progress, and it’s important that his forever home is ready to provide him with the attention, socialization and training he needs to grow into the amazing dog that we know he will be!

Piper, American Staffordshire terrier and pit bull terrier mix

Piper is a sweet female American Staffordshire terrier and pit bull terrier puppy currently residing at Save-A-Bull.

Piper has already been spayed.

Notes from Piper's caretakers:

Piper is a petite brindle beauty. She has cute bald spot on her back that she wears proudly as her Parvo survivor badge. She is a professional cuddler and will cuddle any chance that she gets. She is very perceptive to human feelings and can always tell when you have had a bad day and need some extra gentle kisses. At night, she likes to cuddle up next to her family in bed. She is learning how to stay and lay down, and she knows how to sit and come when she is called. She likes to have a balance of play time and cuddle time every day, but some days she is just fine with only cuddles and snoozes.
