Silvester, Anatolian shepherd mix

Silvester is a handsome male Anatolian shepherd mix in the care of Big Fluffy Dog Rescue.

Silvester is the life of the party — he gets along well with kids, cats or dogs. Have no fear: He is already house-trained. His vaccinations are already up to date, and he is neutered.

Here's what Silvester's friends at Big Fluffy Dog Rescue think of him:

Silvester is a beautiful boy ready for his forever home. He is a shy boy and would do best on a home with another dog who is calm or as an only dog. He is good with all humans and would love to find a family to love him.

Lulu, pit bull terrier

Lulu is a female pit bull terrier dog being kept at East CAN (Community Action Network).

Have no fear: She is already house-trained. She's been vaccinated and spayed.

Lulu's current caretakers say:

Lulu is approximately five years old and 35 pounds. She is healthy and ready for the life she deserves. After being surrendered from a less than stellar situation she definitely has some things to cross off her bucket list. She is house trained but could use help learning to walk well on leash. Lulu's best home would be someone with dog experience who is willing to take her on walks every day and build her confidence with consistent structure in the house and crate training.

From Stella's current caretaker:

Stella is a 2-year-old chow mix and is looking for her forever home. She may take some time to warm up to you, but once she does she is a delight. She would be best as an only dog, as she would love to be the center of attention in your home.

Esme, rat terrier mix

Esme is an adorable female rat terrier mix being kept at Big Fluffy Dog Rescue.

Esme loves other dogs, cats and children. Good news: She is already house-trained. She is spayed, and she has had all her shots.

From Esme's current caretaker:

Meet Esme. She's the adorable terrier mix who had the softball sized tumor on her belly. Well, we removed it and she had a somewhat tumultuous postoperative course, required a second surgery, and ultimately recovered, and is now ready to be adopted.
