Cosmo, cattle dog mix

Notes from Cosmo's caretakers:

Cosmo is a beautiful puppy and a ball of energy. He is friendly to everyone. He would be very happy living in a home with a large yard where he can run around and play with his toys. No apartments, please. 

Apply to adopt Cosmo today at Petfinder.

Rolf, pit bull terrier mix

Rolf is a male pit bull terrier mix being cared for at Lucky Dog Animal Rescue.

Rolf is already neutered and vaccinated. His caretakers say he needs a cat-free environment.

Here's what Rolf's friends at Lucky Dog Animal Rescue think of him:

Rolf loves toys, and can't tell the difference between "his" and "not his" toys, so it might not be a great idea to have younger children's toys left around. He is looking for a quiet home where he can hang out with his people. Rolf is a calm, sweet older boy who likes his routines and loves, loves, loves his toys and being next to his people.

Joker, Labrador retriever mix

Joker is a handsome male Labrador retriever mix currently housed at Lucky Dog Animal Rescue.

Joker is eager to make friends, and he'll get along great with your other dogs. Joker is neutered and vaccinated.

Notes from Joker's caretakers:

Joker can't go to an apartment or condo; he needs more room than that. He is looking for a big-hearted family ready to give him a place to run and play. He needs to go to a home where there's a big yard he can call his own. A family with another dog is a plus. Joker's adopter will need to be ready to give him a positive, structured environment and will need to be prepared to work with him on his manners when he meets new potential buddies.
