Kiki, Labrador retriever mix
Kiki is a female Labrador retriever mix being kept at Animal Lighthouse Rescue.
Kiki loves other dogs; Animal Lighthouse Rescue, however, thinks she will do best in a home without small children. She is already house-trained and vaccinated.
Here's what her friends at Animal Lighthouse Rescue think of her:
This girl is a ball of fun. Kiki loves meeting new people and getting as much playtime as possible. It’s safe to say Kiki is the life of the party. At only 7 months old, she will need an owner who can take the lead on her puppy training and create a good routine with structure.

Otis, Plott hound mix
Otis is a male Plott hound mix staying at Zanis Furry Friends ZFF, Inc.
Otis loves other dogs, cats and kids. Have no fear: He's already house-trained. He already has had all of his shots, and he's neutered, too. Otis is a special-needs pet, so please inquire about his specific care requirements.
From his current caretaker:
Otis is such a good little boy. And while he may not be able to use his back legs very well (likely due to being hit by a car), he makes up for it in heart. He's great with other dogs, kids, and loves everyone he meets.

Harpo Barx, Maltese and poodle mix
Harpo Barx is a male Maltese and poodle mix being kept at Waggytail Rescue.
No other pets please: Harpo Barx is looking for home without other dogs or cats. He would also prefer a home without small children. He has mastered his house-training etiquette, already has had all of his shots and is neutered.
His current caretakers say:
He is a snuggly lapdog, but needs help with introductions to new people. Harpo is an absolute angel in the right, quiet, relaxing environment. However, he has snapped in the past when people aren't slow and misread his signals. He hasn't bitten his current foster and is very loving and comfortable in her quiet home.

Max, Doberman pinscher and chocolate Labrador retriever mix

Max is the life of the party — he gets along well with other dogs. He's already house-trained and vaccinated.
Here's what Max's friends at Rescue Dogs Rock NYC think of him:
Words can't describe how we felt when we laid eyes on Max. The extent of his neglect was so evident, yet this sweet boy was still capable of loving his rescuers. Max was emaciated, had serious skin infections, pressure sores and anemia, but happily, he is already on the road to recovery.
