These Washington-based doggies are up for adoption and in need of a good homePhotos: Petfinder

Interested in adopting a pet — or just looking at some cuddly canines up for adoption? There are dozens of endearing dogs up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Washington.

Animal shelters and pet rescue groups work hard to care for unhoused pets and connect them to loving homes. Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of dogs currently available for adoption.

(Details like pet availability, training, vaccinations and other features are based on data provided by Petfinder and may be subject to change; contact the shelter for the latest information.)

Murphy, boxer and black mouth cur mix

Murphy is a male boxer and black mouth cur mix being kept at K-9 Lifesavers.

Murphy gets along well with other dogs. His ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. He has been neutered and vaccinated, and he's already house-trained.

Notes from Murphy's caretakers:

Murphy is a shy, submissive, gentle giant. He is a bit timid right now with all the change going on around him, but that doesn't keep him from being as sweet as can be. Once he finds a forever or foster home, we know he will quickly come out of his shell and enjoy life.

Maxwell, Labrador retriever mix

Maxwell is a charming male Labrador retriever mix currently residing at K-9 Lifesavers.

Maxwell will get along great with other dogs. His vaccinations are up to date, he's been neutered, and he has mastered his house-training etiquette.

Notes from Maxwell's caretakers:

Max is a real sweetheart, very friendly, and loves people. He is a little intimidated by a leash, so he needs a home with a fenced yard.

Wyatt, beagle and terrier mix

Wyatt is a friendly male beagle and terrier mix staying at Lucky Dog Animal Rescue.

Wyatt loves to socialize — he gets along well with other dogs. He's been vaccinated and neutered.

Notes from Wyatt's caretakers:

Wyatt loves people and is looking for a forever family to love him back. He has some energy that would benefit from mental and physical stimulation through frequent trips to the dog park, or even doggie daycare so he can socialize with his canine friends. If his adopter works full time, Wyatt will need a midday dog walker.
