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 Baltimore.

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.)


Casey, pit bull terrier

Casey is a charming male pit bull terrier dog being kept at Pitties and Purrs.

His vaccinations are up to date, and he's neutered. He has mastered his house-training etiquette.

Casey's current caretakers say:

 Casey is lovable and came to Pitties & Purrs with his brother Riley. When his foster mom rescued him, he was a bit overweight so she's working on getting him to a healthier place.

 Nikki is a 10-year-old, white and tan and short-haired Chihuahua. He’s a tiny little guy and weighs only about six pounds. Nikki has a great personality,  somewhat submissive and he loves attention. He will growl, however, around his food bowl and if he has a treat and another dog comes nearby. Nikki is currently using puppy pads, and will go outdoors too. He is a happy little guy, likes car rides and short walks too.

Gizmo's current caretakers say:

Gizmo is an approximately eight-year-old, white and red and a long-haired Chihuahua. He is very sweet, has tolerated all people including calm and gentle children but he doesn’t want to be carried around by them. Gizmo does growl at other dogs around his food bowl and treats and should be fed alone. He is not bothered by humans around his food. Gizmo doesn’t mind baths or car rides. He had two infected teeth removed, uses puppy pads, and will also go outside.

Big Mama, mixed breed

Big Mama is a female mixed breed dog being kept at Wings of Love, Kuwait.

Big Mama gets along well with other dogs. She is looking for cat-free home,  already house-trained and is spayed.

Big Mama's current caretakers say:

Big Mama is a wonderful dog that was returned by her previous owner because she did not get along with the cat. Big Mama is a fun girl that loves car rides and a good belly rub. She is currently being fostered by a trainer. She walks well on a leash and knows her basic commands, including “place.” Big Mama would do best in a home with a stern owner who is committed to keeping up with her training. Big Mama is a happy dog with a great personality! She would do best in a home with older children and without cats.
