Interested in adopting a pet — or just gazing at some cuddly canines up for adoption? There are dozens of endearing dogs up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Nashville.

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.)

Nike, pit bull terrier

Nike is a male pit bull terrier dog in the care of East CAN (Community Action Network).

Nike gets along well with kids, dogs or cats. Nike is neutered, and he has had all his shots. Have no fear: He is already house-trained.

Here's what Nike's friends at East CAN (Community Action Network) think of him:

He is social, affectionate, intelligent and calm. He is a great office companion, satisfied to warm your feet while you wheel and deal. He loves other dogs and has great play behavior. He is not cat tested, but given his overall demeanor, with a proper intro he would be a great feline friend.

Roxy, pit bull terrier

Roxy is a lovable female pit bull terrier dog in the care of East CAN (Community Action Network).

Roxy is a social butterfly, and she'll get along great with other dogs. She has mastered her house-training etiquette. She's already vaccinated and spayed.

Here's what Roxy's friends at East CAN (Community Action Network) think of her:

Roxy was an owner surrender, so we know she is good in her crate and house trained. She enjoys meeting new people and dogs, and is the life of the party anywhere she goes. She is working hard on learning commands and earning a gold star on leash walking -- she is highly food motivated and learns quickly.

Dolce, Siberian husky mix

Dolce is an adorable female Siberian husky mix being kept at Big Fluffy Dog Rescue.

Dolce will get along great with your other dogs. Her ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. She has been vaccinated and spayed. She's already house-trained.

Notes from Dolce's caretakers:

Dolce is a five year old, 44-pound husky mix or toy direwolf for you GOT fans. She is very people-friendly and outgoing. She is probably best with kids past the squealing years given her activity level, but she's a very good girl. She is good with other dogs as well.

Nora, Staffordshire bull terrier mix

Nora is a female Staffordshire bull terrier mix in the care of Noah's Ark Society.

Nora loves other dogs. She is vaccinated and spayed. Good news: She is already house-trained.

From Nora's current caretaker:

If we could describe Nora in one word, it would be "velcro". This sweet, sassy, and silly pittie mix will always be at your side no matter what. Nora is almost four years old, and looking for a foster or forever home. Due to an unstable living situation, her previous home was unable to keep her and sadly had to surrender her.

Stealy is a five year old hound mix looking for his forever home. He is a very handsome boy that likes his space, so other dogs need to respect that. He would be fine with another submissive dog as well as dog savvy cats. He is just waiting for the right family to come along.

Otis is a handsome, black and tan, male German Shepherd Dog. He is six years old and weighs around 100 pounds. He has a moderate energy level and is crate-trained and housebroken. He is good with older kids and is social with other dogs but would be best placed as an only dog.
