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

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.)


Misha, chihuahua

Misha is an adorable female chihuahua in the care of A Path 4 Paws Dog Rescue.

Misha loves other dogs and cats. Fear not: She is already house-trained, her vaccinations are up to date, and she's spayed.

From Misha's current caretaker:

Misha is about 7 yrs old and weighs 10 pounds. She is a cuddler and loves blankets of all kinds. If you can't find her, look under the nearest blanket. I would recommend her to a home with teenagers or adults only as her patience with the younger ones is less and she becomes snippy with them. 

Apply to adopt Misha today at Petfinder.

Rosie, terrier mix

Rosie is a female terrier mix being kept at A Home 4 Spot.

Rosie will get along great with other dogs. She has been vaccinated and spayed, and she's already house-trained.

Here's what Rosie's friends at A Home 4 Spot think of her:

We aren’t sure of her exact age, but we think 10 years old. But for her age, she moves very well. She has no issues going up and down stairs and enjoys going outside with us. She’s very loving and sweet and just wants to sit next you and get lots of love. She is fine on her own for long periods of time but will want all the attention when you get home.

Dough Boy, American bulldog and mastiff mix

Dough Boy is a charming male American bulldog and mastiff mix staying at Animal Network.

Dough Boy is a social animal, and he gets along well with other dogs. He's already house-trained, and he has been vaccinated and neutered.

From Dough Boy's current caretaker:

Dough Boy had some medical issues when he came into our rescue, but we are taking care of his needs. He is 6 years old and 114 pounds. This guy is a big marshmallow — very sweet and loving.

Brutus, Great Dane

Brutus is a male Great Dane currently housed at Doggie Rescue LV/Animal Help Alliance.

Brutus gets along well with other dogs. He is looking for cat-free home. He's already house-trained and neutered, and he has had all his shots.

Here's what Brutus' friends at Doggie Rescue LV/Animal Help Alliance think of him:

This big guy is approximately 1.5 years old and over 100 pounds. Brutus does great with the family’s three children, but he has some stranger-danger.

Liam, pit bull terrier mix

Liam is a male pit bull terrier mix in the care of Doggie Rescue LV/Animal Help Alliance.

Liam will do best with an owner who has time to bond with him. He will need a home free of other dogs and cats, but he does well with older children. He's mastered his house-training etiquette, he has had all of his shots, and he is neutered.

From Liam's current caretaker:

Liam is a gentle boy who loves his humans with all his heart. He’s experienced some significant trauma in his past and needs a home that will help him build some confidence so that he can be the best boy he can be. He craves love and attention and tries so hard to gain his humans' approval.

Cherry, rat terrier

Cherry is a lovable female rat terrier being cared for at The Churchill Foundation.

Cherry is looking for cat-free family, and she would prefer a home without small children. She is spayed and vaccinated, and she has mastered her house-training etiquette. Cherry is a special needs pet, so please inquire about her specific care requirements.

Cherry's current caretakers say:

Cherry is a sweet but fearful senior girl looking for a calm home and people to go on daily walks and sunbathe with. She doesn't have any teeth, but that doesn't seem to bother her one bit.

Riley, corgi mix

Riley is a charming male corgi mix being cared for at A Path 4 Paws Dog Rescue.

Riley is the life of the party, and he loves cats, dogs and kids. He's been vaccinated and neutered, and he's already house-trained.

Riley is a laid-back guy who enjoys a good dog bed, but he is on his feet when you are and is up for many more adventures.
