Yail, chihuahua mix

Yail is a female chihuahua mix in the care of Lancaster Four Dog Rescue, Inc.

Yail loves cats, dogs and kids. She is already vaccinated. Good news: She is already house-trained.

Yail's current caretakers say:

Yail is a sweetheart that loves to sit beside you and cuddle and be loved on. She is learning to play fetch. She was rescued from a high-kill shelter after living her entire life outside as part of a hoarding situation. She is learning that living life inside is pretty awesome and she loves the company of people. She enjoys learning new things, but can be a little shy at first. She is a great little dog.

Max, chihuahua

Max is a charming male chihuahua dog in the care of A Woof Over My Head.

Max will get along great with your other dogs. Max would prefer a home without small children. He is already neutered, and he has had all his shots. No need to worry: He's already house-trained.

Max's current caretakers say:

Max loves to be with his person, to cuddle, go for walks and car rides. He enjoys the company of another small dog. A great home for Max is a home in which he spends most of his time with his person: so someone who works from home, is retired or otherwise at home, or can take him to work. He's happy when he is with his person.

Mario, pit bull terrier mix

Mario is a charming male pit bull terrier mix in the care of Woofin Palooza, LLC.

Mario is friendly as can be — he'll get along great with other dogs. He already has had all of his shots, and he's neutered. He's mastered his house-training etiquette.

Here's what Mario's friends at Woofin Palooza, LLC think of him:

Mario is in need of exercise. He was surrendered to our shelter partner by an elderly couple who could not control him, train him or exercise him. He is severely obese. He is slimming up day by day. He loves playing with the other dogs in our play yard and is fantastic with people. He has quickly learned how to walk nicely on a leash and to calm down when around people. He has great potty habits and is very social and great with other dogs. He is a happy guy.

Sammie, dachshund

Sammie is an adorable female dachshund dog in the care of Oregon Dachshund Rescue Inc.

Sammie will get along great with your other dogs. Her ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. She is already vaccinated and spayed. Good news: She's already house-trained.

Sammie's current caretakers say:

Sammie is agile and athletic. She loves everyone; her people, visitors, kids and other dogs. She loves car rides and walks. She loves meal times. She hates the vet! Sammie has a wonderful temperament. She is affectionate without being clingy. She is happy to be in your lap, and she's a lug, but she's happy to curl up on the couch as well, as long as you are nearby. She's a high class girl, and is used to free access to couches, pillows, beds, and laps. Sammie can hear a marshmallow drop from 50 feet and is very food focused. If she can reach it, she believes it should be hers, and she is quite the jumper.

Maxwell, terrier mix

Maxwell is an adorable male terrier mix being kept at The Heart of Rescue.

Maxwell is friendly as can be — he loves other dogs. Have no fear: He is already house-trained. Maxwell is already neutered and vaccinated.

Here's what Maxwell's friends at The Heart of Rescue think of him:

Maxwell is very friendly and eager to please. Maxwell is a little shy but very long once he relaxes. He likes his chew toys and blankets. He made a long trek to us from North Carolina. He did test negative for heart worm but should continue to be tested and preventatively treated for six months to a year. Maxwell is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.
