6 cuddly canines to adopt now in SeattlePhotos: Petfinder

Interested in adopting a pet — or just gazing at some cuddly canines up for adoption? There are dozens of deserving dogs up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Seattle.

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.)

Sultry, greyhound

Sultry is a darling female greyhound dog in the care of Royal Hounds Greyhound Adoption.

Sultry will get along great with your other dogs. Her ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. No need to worry: She's already house-trained. She has had all of her shots, and she's spayed.

Here's what Sultry's friends at Royal Hounds Greyhound Adoption think of her:

Sultry is a sweet little girl who may be shy at first but who warms up quickly. She enjoys kisses and hugs and is a bright and fun dog. She does not do well with cats or small dogs, but she does very well with other dogs her size. Sultry does best with adults or very calm, older children. Sultry’s hobbies include long walks, napping and stealing laundry to play with. A fenced yard is required to adopt Sultry.

Remi, shepherd and husky mix

Remi is a darling male shepherd and husky mix currently housed at Dog Gone Seattle.

Remi loves other dogs. He has had all his shots. He's already house-trained.

Here's what Remi's friends at Dog Gone Seattle think of him:

Remi is estimated to be 2 years old and weighs about 70 lbs. He's friendly with people and other dogs and loves initiating play with the resident dog. He' s very energetic but loves to get some belly rubs and enjoys laying on the cool floor. Remi is still getting used to the crate and doesn't enjoy being left, so we are looking for a home that is around most of the time or can take him to work with. He's very smart and has learned "sit" but will benefit from continued training. He loves squeaky toys and chasing balls so having a fenced in yard would be a huge plus for this guy.

Chief, Beauceron and shepherd mix

Chief is a male Beauceron and shepherd mix being cared for at Dog Gone Seattle.

Chief plays well with others, and he gets along well with other dogs. Have no fear: He's already house-trained. He's already vaccinated and neutered.

Chief's current caretakers say:

He will need some help to learn basic commands and leash manners. He does great with the resident dog, kids and adults. Chief will need some more work on leash training as he can be reactive toward unknown dogs. Chief loves following you around and cuddling. He's a very confident, active dog that is looking for an active family that will continue his training and take him on lots of PNW adventures.

Grim, German shepherd

Grim is a male German shepherd dog in the care of Dog Gone Seattle.

Grim loves other dogs. He is looking for cat-free forever home. His vaccinations are already up to date, and he is neutered. He is already house-trained.

From Grim's current caretaker:

Grim is a typical Shepherd — loyal, obedient and alert. He is looking for a home with breed experience as he does best with strong leadership from his handler. He will do best in a home that could continue his training. He does have prey drive towards small animals, so no cats. Grim would do well as an only dog, or with another confident, easy-going companion similar to his size. Grim loves car rides and adventures to the beach or hiking. He will be an excellent companion in his forever home.

Gemma, pit bull terrier

Gemma is a lovable female pit bull terrier dog in the care of Dog Gone Seattle.

Gemma would do great in a home children — she loves being around people. No other pets please: She is looking for family without other dogs or cats. Gemma is spayed, and she has had all her shots. Have no fear: She's already house-trained.

Here's what Gemma's friends at Dog Gone Seattle think of her:

She has been lovingly cared for since she was a puppy and is house/crate trained, and is obedient, loyal and loving with all people including the young children in the house. While Gemma can/does play well with other dogs, she is dominant and cannot be trusted with all dogs. Gemma has no human aggression and is a loving companion who respects the house rules, walks well on and off leash and doesn't chew on anything that doesn't belong to her. Gemma would do great in a home with children.

Cleo, Australian cattle dog and pit bull terrier mix

Cleo is a female Australian cattle dog and pit bull terrier mix in the care of Dog Gone Seattle.

Cleo gets along well with other dogs. She's mastered her house-training etiquette. Cleo is spayed and vaccinated.

Notes from Cleo's caretakers:

Cleo was surrendered by her local owner because they could no longer care for her. We know she is 5 years old and currently weighs 50 lbs. She will do best in a home with a fenced yard and older, dog-savvy kids. She could live with another calm and confident dog in the home. She is very smart and easy to train, plus she already knows a lot of commands. She enjoys going on walks in the neighborhood and is very easy on a leash. Cleo will do best in a home with older children. She loves to run around the backyard with a ball and play fetch. She does get very excited and noisy, but that's just her way of showing her excitement.
