Lela, pit bull terrier and shar-pei mix
Lela is a female pit bull terrier and shar-pei mix currently residing at Pitties and Purrs.
Lela loves other dogs, cats and children. She's already been spayed, and she is house-trained.
Notes from Lela's caretakers:
Lela is a low-energy, laid-back girl. Her foster mom says that she is the biggest cuddle bug who always wants to be near her human. Lela can’t get close enough, especially at bedtime, and, yes, she does snore! One of her favorite activities is walking. However, she can only do short walks because long walks are too much for her feet. She also loves lying in the sun.

Notes from Rex's caretakers:
Meet Rex, who is as loyal and affectionate as he is handsome. He is playful, snuggly and loving. Rex loves to take long walks and to play in the yard. He especially enjoys car rides that end in eating Sonic pup cups.

Max, German shepherd
Max is a handsome male German shepherd being cared for at All Shepherd Rescue.
Max has been neutered, and he is house-trained.
Notes from Max's caretakers:
Max's "stranger danger" issues mean that he will do best if placed in a home that doesn't have a lot of visitors inside the house and with a family who is prepared to work with his social anxieties and fear aggression. If given the appropriate amount of time and experiences, Max does warm up to others, but it is a process that requires time, patience and a good trainer.
Apply to adopt Max today at Petfinder.

This sweet gentleman, Ike, is 9 years old. He's in good health and enjoys being active. He needs a long walk and interaction every day. Ike is a very easy walker and ignores other dogs, even if they're barking at him. He does like to frequently stop and smell the roses. Ike really likes to be part of the pack and will follow his humans around the house all day. When he gets really excited, he does an adorable little grin.

Khloe, American Staffordshire terrier and pit bull terrier mix
Khloe is an adorable female American Staffordshire terrier and pit bull terrier mix currently housed at Adopt a Homeless Animal Rescue.

Notes from Khloe's caretakers:
Khloe is is a true extrovert. She loves going, doing, seeing, playing and cuddling — in no particular order. She is busting at the seams with love and energy. Given her energy level, small children will not be a good fit. However, with the proper introduction, another dog could help to show Khloe the ropes. She loves everyone with whom she has been in contact.
Apply to adopt Khloe today at Petfinder.
