Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of dogs available for adoption near you. Read on to meet some friendly, furry locals.

(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, terrier mix

Roxy is a female terrier mix being kept at A Home 4 Spot.

Roxy will get along great with your other dogs. She is vaccinated and spayed, and she has mastered her house-training etiquette.

From Roxy's current caretaker:

Roxy is a sweet one-eyed, 7-year-old. Having only one eye does not hinder this girl in any way, and she gets around just like a dog with two eyes. She needs to gain more confidence as a dog, so sometimes she gets a little territorial over toys, but she is learning quickly to share and trust. She will need an adopter who will be patient with her until she can overcome her fear that she will never be left behind again.

Lucy is 7 months old. She is a perfect shepherd. Yes, she does need some guidance, but she is sweet as pie.

Rebel, shepherd and husky mix

Rebel is a male shepherd and husky mix in the care of Animal Network.

He's been vaccinated and neutered, and he is house-trained. Rebel is a special needs pet, so please inquire about his specific care requirements.

Here's what Rebel's friends at Animal Network think of him:

Rebel was rescued as a young puppy and doctor said he may have had a trauma or birth issue for some neurological problems. This does not affect his day-to-day living, just when he gets excited, he tends to tilt his head. He is 3 years old and loves to be with his humans.

Leo, chihuahua mix

Leo is a male chihuahua mix staying at A Home 4 Spot.

Leo gets along well with other dogs. He is already house-trained, and he has been neutered and vaccinated.

From Leo's current caretaker:

Leo is 2 years old and 10 pounds. He came to us from our local shelter. He was not doing well in the shelter environment. He was extremely scared, shut down, didn't want anyone to handle him and snappy at shelter staff when they tried to give him vaccines. However, within 30 minutes of getting to his foster home, he was seeking attention and was playing with toys.

Maverick, shepherd and husky mix

Maverick is a lovable male shepherd and husky mix being cared for at Animal Network.

Maverick loves other dogs. He is already neutered, he has had all his shots, and he is house-trained.

Notes from Maverick's caretakers:

Maverick is only 9 - 10 months old. He is not very big, so we think he will be more of a medium-sized shepherd when full grown. He is a typical puppy and has lots of playful energy. He is shy at first, but does warm up. He especially loves women.

Bruce, pit bull terrier mix

Bruce is a charming male pit bull terrier mix currently housed at Animal Network.

Animal Network recommends Bruce be placed in a home without small children. He is already neutered, he has had all of his shots, and he is house-trained.

Here's what Bruce's friends at Animal Network think of him:

Bruce Lee, as we call him, was returned to the shelter because he doesn't do well with small children and doesn't like to be crated. This young boy is only 1 year old and 62 pounds.
