Interested in adopting a pet — or just looking at some lovable pups up for adoption? There are dozens of deserving dogs up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Seattle.

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.)

Gulliver, shepherd mix

Gulliver is a darling male shepherd mix being cared for at Dog Gone Seattle.

Gulliver loves other dogs. His ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. He is already house-trained. He is vaccinated.

Gulliver's current caretakers say:

He is pretty independent and not much of a snuggler or someone that asks for a lot of attention. He loves his crate and loves spending time in there. Gulliver is really smart, and while he doesn't know any commands, he responds great to body language.

Gemma, pit bull terrier

Gemma is an adorable female pit bull terrier dog currently residing at Dog Gone Seattle.

Gemma wants to be your one and only: She will need a home free of other dogs and cats. She does do well with kids.She's vaccinated and spayed. She's already house-trained.

Gemma's current caretakers say:

Gemma is a wonderful six-year-old Pitbull who, due to no fault of her own, needs a new home urgently. She has been lovingly cared for since she was a puppy and is house/crate trained and obedient, and loyal and loving with all people including the young children in the house. While Gemma can/does play well with other dogs, she is dominant and cannot be trusted with all dogs. With the right leader she is compliant with commands to leave it and will disengage from inappropriate behavior.

Jewel, chihuahua and Italian greyhound mix

Jewel is a lovable female chihuahua and Italian greyhound mix being cared for at Dog Gone Seattle.

Jewel will get along great with other dogs. Her vaccinations are already up to date.

Notes from Jewel's caretakers:

Jewel is a very sweet, loving girl who absolutely loves her people! Jewel has done well meeting new dogs, walks great on leash and is working on her potty training. She's either in a high-energy playful mode or is a complete lap dog. Jewel is pretty timid and shy in new places and with new people, and is startled by loud noises or fast movements, but she warms up pretty quickly if given a little time.

Cookie, pit bull terrier mix

Cookie is a sweet female pit bull terrier mix being kept at Dog Gone Seattle.

Cookie loves other dogs. Her ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. Dog Gone Seattle, however, wants to place her in a home without small children. Her vaccinations are up to date, and she's spayed.

Cookie's current caretakers say:

She is a Pitbull mix that was surrendered by her owner. Cookie will need someone to continue to train and work on her resource guarding tendencies. She would do best in a home without children and possibly be an only dog. Cookie is looking for lots of attention and snuggles on the couch.

Jax, Airedale terrier mix

Jax is a male Airedale terrier mix being kept at Dog Gone Seattle.

Jax's ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. He is already neutered, and he has had all his shots.

Here's what Jax's friends at Dog Gone Seattle think of him:

He gets along with almost any dog he meets and does well on leash. He is good in the house but isn't well suited for apartment living due to some separation anxiety and barking. He is up for anything — happy to join you on a hike or just binge-watching your favorite Netflix series.

Kallie, German shepherd

Kallie is a lovable female German shepherd dog being cared for at Dog Gone Seattle.

Kallie loves other dogs. She is looking for cat-free family. She's already been spayed. Have no fear: She's already house-trained.

Here's what Kallie's friends at Dog Gone Seattle think of her:

Kallie is a friendly dog who will bond quickly with her family. She will need a breed-experienced owner to provide structure and leadership. Kallie is friendly with other dogs but would not be a dog park dog or a doggy day care dog as she can become overwhelmed if her environment becomes overly chaotic. Kallie is not a candidate for a home with small children as she has had tendencies in the past to become protective without structure and leadership in the home.
