Cafe Ole, Labrador retriever mix
Cafe Ole is a female Labrador retriever puppy currently residing at Zanis Furry Friends ZFF Inc.
Cafe Ole loves other dogs. She has been vaccinated, and she's already house-trained.
Notes from Cafe Ole's caretakers:
At 6 months, this little girl is a stunning girl who is going to break quite a few male doggy hearts. Check out her white toes. She is heart-meltingly adorable and sweet, and we are only just getting to know her. Found on the streets of Puerto Rico, Cafe Ole is making herself totally at home here and is looking for that purrfect fur-ever home with kids, dogs and people who will delight in her puppy antics.

Chapito, shepherd mix
Chapito is a handsome male shepherd puppy in the care of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC.
Chapito is happy to keep company with other dogs, and he has been vaccinated.
Here's what Chapito's friends at Rescue Dogs Rock NYC think of him:
Chapito is a male shepherd mix rescued in Texas. Our veterinary partner estimates that Chapito was 15 weeks old at the time of intake in March 2020. This poor guy was surrendered to a shelter after he had been hit by a car and his owners could not give him the medical care he required. Unfortunately, those owners left poor Chapito in incredible pain for days, with the bone sticking out of his rear leg, before they decided to surrender him.

Groot, Yorkshire terrier
Groot is a male Yorkshire terrier puppy currently residing at Eve's Sanctuary - Animal Rescue.
Groot is a social butterfly — he's happy to keep company with other dogs. He already has had all of his shots.
Notes from Groot's caretakers:
Breeder-surrender puppy, just coming up to 1 year old shortly. He was rejected from sale due to his unexpected enormous size, despite both his parents being under-10-pound pure Yorkies! Lol, what would make you an athletic superstar as a human has left poor Groot looking for a new home that can see his beauty, despite his somewhat oversized, oafish puppy size.
Apply to adopt Groot today at Petfinder.
Heart, Labrador retriever and pit bull terrier mix
Heart is a darling female Labrador retriever and pit bull terrier puppy currently housed at Rescue Dogs Rock NYC.
Heart gets along well with other dogs, and she has had all her shots.
Heart's current caretakers say:
Heart was suffering from a terrible skin condition when we rescued her, but she has received the medical care she requires, and now the only thing that bothers her is the fact that her happy, loving forever home hasn't come along yet! Heart is good with people of all ages and other dogs.
