Start your day off right by browsing through cuddly canines! There are dozens of dogs up for adoption right here in Las Vegas.

Hoodline partnered with Petfinder, an online adoption site that lists “more than 315,000 adoptable pets from nearly 14,000 animal shelters and rescue groups" to bring you this roundup of dogs near you.

Betty, pit bull terrier

Betty is a female pit bull terrier dog currently residing at Doggie Rescue LV/Animal Help Alliance.

Betty will do best with an owner who has time to bond with her. She will need a home free of other dogs, cats and children. She already has had all of her shots, and she is spayed. She is already house-trained. Betty is a special needs pet, so please inquire about her specific care requirements.

Betty's current caretakers say:

Betty is a very special girl. It was clear when she arrived at rescue that she had endured abuse: She was depressed and suffered trauma to her eyes. While we couldn't save her eyes, we worked on repairing her heart. In rehab, she has improved by leaps and bounds. Favorite activities include cuddling, going for walks and rolling in the grass. Whoever wins this girl over will have the most loyal friend anyone could hope for.

My brother Charlie and I have spent our whole lives—all 11 years—together. Our owner, who has shown us so much love over the years, has to go into full-time care. So we are looking for a soft place to land. We love to cuddle and spend all our time together. Apply today to adopt us. We can't wait to meet you!

East is an adorable female pit bull terrier and American Staffordshire terrier mix being kept at Hearts Alive Village Las Vegas.

East gets along well with cats and dogs. Good news: She's already house-trained, crate-trained, spayed and vaccinated.

From East's current caretaker:

This five-year-old gal is super smart and a people pleaser. She is at near pro level with her basic command skills and loves to show off her paw shake, heart stealer move. Since she left the shelter, she has discovered that doing fast speed zoomies and playing with toys is so much fun. She needs a single person home with someone who understands her past trauma and will help manage her interactions.
