Opie, Labrador retriever

Opie is a darling male Labrador retriever dog in the care of PawsCo.

Opie plays well with others, and he gets along great with other dogs. He is already house-trained, neutered and vaccinated.

About Opie:

Hey there, I’m Opie. In addition to searching for my forever family, I’m using my time in foster care to really perfect my yoga practice, which is my true passion in life. (Right after being with my people, of course!) I like to start every day with some downward-facing dog poses, and throughout the day can be found lounging on a yoga mat. It just makes me feel so zen, you know? Of course, cardio is important too, so I take a break from yoga sometimes to play with my toys, or take a walk around the neighborhood and sniff things out. When I’m not exercising, I’m making sure that my people know how much I love them by being the most devoted boy you’ll ever meet. I’m so sweet and easy-going, although I’m a little bit hard of hearing, so sometimes you might have to show rather than tell me what you want me to do. I love cuddles and pets, and will get up every so often to circle the house and make sure everyone has a chance to love on me. Need a yoga partner? A best friend who will love you always?

Shorty, dachshund and chihuahua mix

Shorty is a charming male dachshund and chihuahua mix being cared for at PawsCo.

Shorty gets along swimmingly with other dogs, but his ideal forever home would be a cat-free and child-free environment. Rest assured: He is already neutered, and he has had all his shots.

Here's what Shorty has to say for himself:

My name is Shorty, and I’m a small, spunky guy with a ton of spirit. I am guaranteed to fall hard for my new people, but you should know that I’ll need your support to warm up to new people, places and things. Are you my future family? I feel the happiest snuggling with my family in the comfort of our home. I’m intensely motivated by treats and plush toys, like any self-respecting pupper. My foster mama said I’m constantly making her laugh with my antics. Do you think you could be my security blanket?

Bubbles, mixed breed

Bubbles is an affectionate female mixed breed dog in the care of MaxFund No-Kill Animal Shelter.

Bubbles is friendly as can be — she loves spending time around other dogs. She is already spayed and vaccinated.

Get to know Bubbles:

 What's up! I'm Bubbles, and I'm a sweet, one-year-old female pup with a very friendly personality. I hope I am lucky enough to find my forever home soon. I'm a very lovable girl that loves meeting new people and giving tons of kisses! I do great on walks, although I do have a deformity on my front left leg. I do not seem to be in pain at all, and I do not let it hold me back while playing. It just makes me look unique. I still play and run around with no issues. I would make an amazing addition to just about any family out there! Could yours be the one?
