Boooger, boxer mix

Boooger is a darling male boxer mix in the care of Helping Paws, Inc.

He's already house-trained. His vaccinations are up to date, and he's neutered.

Here's what Boooger's friends at Helping Paws, Inc. think of him:

Boooger, about seven years old, is a very sweet old man who is timid when first meeting new people. The family he's known for his entire life surrendered him because of a move. We've observed how attached he gets to one person easily: He will follow you from one room to another. He would do best in a calm, quiet home. If you're a family with children over the age of 10, consider adopting this sweetheart.

Tilly, Labrador retriever

Tilly is a darling female Labrador retriever dog in the care of Love of Labs.

This gal is the life of the party — she loves other dogs. She's mastered her house-training etiquette. She is vaccinated and spayed.

Tilly's current caretakers say:

Hi ya’ll, I’m Tilly! I'm just one years old and have a lot of puppy in me. But I'm super affectionate and just love to shower my foster family with lots of kisses. I have a wonderful furry best friend at my foster home and would love to have a doggie friend at my new home. If you want a wonderful addition to your family, contact us today.

Brizzo, Great Pyrenees

Brizzo is a male Great Pyrenees dog currently residing at Indy Great Pyrenees Rescue.

He will do best in a home without small children. He's already house-trained. His vaccinations are already up to date, and he's neutered. Brizzo is a special needs pet, so please inquire about his specific care requirements.

Brizzo's current caretakers say:

Brizzo is a real lady's man and needs to be placed with a female owner. His elderly owners surrendered him, because they could no longer care for him. This cutie often gives you a big, toothy grin. We think it's adorable! He loves playing and romping with other dogs and going for walks . Got experience with large breeds and a home with a secure yard? You might be the pyrect companion for Brizzo!

Toma, poodle mix

Toma is a lovable male poodle mix currently housed at Heaven After Hell Rescue.

Toma is happy to keep company with children and dogs. He has had all of his shots, and he's neutered. Fear not: He's already house-trained.

Toma's current caretakers say:

Toma has liked everybody who will pay attention to him. He likes other dogs, though he can be a tad pushy when getting to know them. He's not fond of his crate and does much better when blocked off in an area. An ideal home would have another doggie playmate and adults who are often around.

Cossett, hound and beagle mix

Cossett is a darling female hound and beagle mix being cared for at Alliance for Responsible Pet Ownership, Inc - ARPO.

She is looking for cat-free forever and a family without small children. No need to worry: She is already house-trained, vaccinated and spayed.

Notes from Cossett's caretakers:

This athletic dog seeks an active owner who has some experience with dog training. She takes a while to warm up and can be fearful and timid when meeting new people. However, it doesn't take her long to bond with someone. Could that someone be you? Apply today to adopt this darling dog.

Duke, Great Pyrenees

Duke is a male Great Pyrenees dog staying at Indy Great Pyrenees Rescue.

Duke's ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. He is looking for a home without small children. He's already vaccinated and neutered. Have no fear: He's already house-trained. Duke is a special needs pet, so please inquire about his specific care requirements.

From Duke's current caretaker:

He has a beautiful big head with gray and brown markings and a smile on his face. He would make the "pyrfect" companion for someone who has a fenced yard. This energetic soul loves playing with other dogs, car rides and squirrel patrol. He walks with a limp due to a broken leg he suffered as a pup, but he's able to enjoy a less painful life with anti-inflammatories. Please consider giving him a forever home or inquire about our foster-to-adopt program.
