Alaska

Labrador Retriever + Pit Bull Terrier + German Shepherd Mix
3 years old
Female
77 pounds

The last frontier of love is just over the horizon… Journey on until the sky reflects visions of friendship, and waters of companionship pour over the river’s edge. Then you will know you have arrived at your destination- Alaska; your new best friend. Adventures of the heart must be thoughtful and exact. One step off the path and love could be lost in the current of loneliness. That is why I take things slow—hearts are resilient but fragile. I don’t want the tragedy of a broken heart laid at my paws, and I may be slow to warm up to people because I want to make sure that they can trust me and I can trust them. That is what love is about, isn’t it? Trust. I trust respectful children 8+ to be considerate of my feelings. I know the affections of other dogs readily, but I have no interest in extending myself to cats anytime soon. I think about all the wonderful things I might be able to have one day, and it gives me hope for the future. I want to better myself so I can in turn enrich someone else’s life with only the best canine companionship. I have taken my crate training very seriously, and this frees up my time at night to rest and think about all of the adventures we can take together. Can you hear the calling? Are you up for a challenge of love? Greatness doesn’t come easily, and ease doesn’t beget greatness. Let us find the greatness of love, together.

3 years old-77lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes microchip, spay, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

B.G

Dalmatian + Pointer Mix
8 years old
Female
80 pounds

You like girls with beautiful curves, right? A little padding for the petting? I know when I see a Greyhound I’m like “someone get that dog a milk-bone”, you know what I’m saying?!? I got all the filling in all the right places- both inside and out! Good looks and a great big personality to match! I get along well with other dogs like me, but I am not a fan of cats or little dogs… They always be in my business and I be like “listen cha-huahua, I will step on you!”.  And respectful children 10+, I don’t mind them one bit as long as they understand how a Queen like me should be treated. I want to be treated with respect, I want everyone to know that I am the Queen of the castle. Don’t be fooled, I’ve still got energy to burn and I do like to work on my fitness, so walks around he neighborhood or some easy trail hiking would be good for me. And you best believe that I’m not only takin’ pride in myself but in my house too…so you know I keep my place clean. I also keep my place safe, real safe, my family too. Once you seen all the rest, come meet the best and get some of this Big Girl love.

Boone

Labrador Retriever + Rottweiler Mix
1 year old
Male
77 pounds

You can call me a big baby, it’s all right. I am only a year old and no one has yet given me the proper training to be the good dog I know I can be. I want to make people happy, but I just get so excited I end up messing everything up. If there were a family that could maybe look past my 77-pound stature and see the puppy potential I have inside me, I know I could make them one happy family! I love to play! The bigger and the sturdier the kids 7+ are, the better. I do not like cats, but I do get along with other dogs great. I have taken to crate training pretty well and think it would be beneficial for me and my future. I didn’t start out on the best path in this life, but for whatever reason it has gotten me here today. I know I can be a Boone for the right family, not a burden.

1 year old-77lbs. My adoption fee is $200 and includes microchip, neuter, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

Buddy Boy

Jack Russell Terrier + Lhasa Apso Mix
3 years old
Male
20 pounds

♫My Buddy, my Buddy, my Buddy, my Buddy and me!♫ That will be the song in your heart when you find me in your life! I mean just look at this face! This is the kinda mug that makes Buddy material….And Buddy Boy material makes a suit of love that is prêt-à-porter! Buddy Boy also make a great little protector…my small stature won’t keep me from acting like the toughest guy in town when strangers intrude. Like any good Buddy should I love going for walks, playing fetch, going for car rides or playing tug-of-war. Or we can just canoodle on the couch and watch seasons of Cake Boss on Netflix. I like cake, and other people named Buddy making a difference in the world through cake! I know sit and down, I am house trained, and my crate training is coming along great. I don’t like being over handled or roughed around, so only kids 12+ can be my buddies. I will be the best Buddy Boy that you ever did know! ♫Your Buddy, your Buddy, your Buddy, your Buddy and You!♫

Butters

Pit Bull Terrier
2 years old
Male
80 pounds

Looking for a big ol’ bundle of fun-loving friendship? Well, I can spread it on thick! I’m that rich, satisfying, cuddle-buddy that will smother your heart in a thick layer of…Butters! I am all the mmm mmm goodness you could expect from a velvety lover, with a few added surprises that will throw your taste buds for a spin! Like the fact that I am 100% house and crate trained. I know the sit, down, drop it, and leave it commands. Sturdy kids 8+ would love to have a taste of play time with me! I have lived with cats before, and as long as they know how to live with dogs, I think we can make it work. I enjoy my doggy daycare visits but tend to play a little rough, and male dogs can get me over stimulated quickly, so I’d love to have a furry housemate, but would most appreciate one of the lady variety. I am a heaping tasty spoonful of love just waiting to accent the cherished dish of your life. One thing that is good about Butters, I go with everything!

Champ

English Pointer Mix
9 years old
Male
62 pounds

“Now, Champ,” they said, “you got to get in there and give it your all! 110%, Champ! They can’t beat you, only you can beat yourself! Now get out there and start swinging!” And that is how I have lived my life ever since I was a pup. I have never backed down from a challenge and never let my family feel unloved. It’s quite a heavy load being the family pet: gotta make sure everyone from the rugrats to the in-laws and other canines are happy, healthy, and cared for. Sure, it may look like I am just getting belly rubs, but that is actually me letting you get some cathartic release. You didn’t become the Heart Hitter Heavyweight Champion of the World without a strategy and some finesse. I am always into training, whether it is taking a stroll around the neighborhood, practicing my iron bladder technique for indoor decathlons, or drag racing cats to the nearest tree; I am always looking to perfect my game. Heck, sometimes I stay awake at night and do a couple of reps of burpees in my crate just to be limber in the morning! I got the drive, determination, and win/loss record to be the best dog you have ever known. Is your heart up to the challenge?

Champion

Border Collie Mix
3 years old
Male
45 pounds

I am your Champion, my friend, and I will keep on fighting (metaphorically, of course—as a member of the canine community I do not condone dog-on-dog violence) my friends. I am your Champion! I am the Champion of your world! Can you hear the roar of the crowd? It’s like the world is cheering for our love! Who wouldn’t be stoked that two crazy kids like us found each other and found happiness! So maybe we should meet up and get this thing started! Kids 12+ are more my speed since they know how to not be grabby; my pet peeve is grabby hands. Other than that I am game for most anything! I get along with other dogs great, I am housetrained, and I know I can master this crate training business. What does it take to make a Champion? Hard work, determination, and perseverance. If you can use those with me along with love and understanding, then I think you just made yourself a Champion friend!

Chance

German Shepherd + Akita Mix
8 years old
Male
102 pounds

Gimme one shot and I know I can hit that bull’s-eye on your heart. My name ain’t Cupid, but I reckon I have just as much love to throw around as that chubby baby. I been down a long hard road in this life, but I never let it break my spirit. Sure I can be cantankerous at times, but when you get to be my age you just don’t put up with as much guff as you used to. That is why children around me should be respectful of their elders. Same goes for my fellow dogs—they should be respectful as well. In my book, you get what you give and I don’t give cats any love, so I expect the same from them, which is fine by me. My crate training has been going really well and I am pretty excited about having my own little den of solace. I mosey at my own pace and don’t have too much giddyup, so low and slow is how I like to roll. I don’t really have any marathons in me anymore. But I still like to get out and throw the old ball around. If you can see it in your heart to give this old soldier one more tour of duty, I will pledge to you my heart, my love, and my honor.

Chiki

Chihuahua + Basenji Mix
3 years old
Male
10 pounds

Are you a little cheeky? I’m a little Chiki! You may not know it at first because it takes me a little bit to warm up to people. But once I feel I can trust you I will totally show you my loving, goofy spirit. I love to run and play with all sorts of toys. I can cuddle like nobody’s business and really enjoy lap time. But like I said, I don’t warm up to people easily, so don’t get discouraged if it’s not fireworks at first sight. Kids 10+ are better suited for me since they know how to go slow and be gentle. I just want to be honest and up front with you. I am housetrained and my crate training is coming along nicely. I don’t mind being around the other dogs here at the shelter, but I would really like to be the center of attention in my new home. I like to chase cats, just for fun, though—what dog doesn’t? If you have the patience to watch the magic unfold, I promise you I’ll be the Chiki little monkey you have been looking for to warm your heart.

Chowder

Chihuahua + Am. Eskimo Mix
2 years old
Male
9 pounds

After a long voyage at sea, a sailor wants nothing more than a warm hearth and a piping hot bowl of chowder to settle the debt that the ocean charged to his constitution. Now you may not be the seafaring type, but I bet dollars to donuts that you got a hankering this Chowder can satisfy! You need a hearty helping of loyalty and friendship and I got more than you could ever need! Whether you need intensive cuddle therapy, or a simple walking companion, I am the dog to get it done! I have the devoted and protective demeanor that is sure to be favored by most any family without young children who harbor a low traffic home. I get along smashingly with the other dogs here in my play group and the shelter cats too, but am not always willing to share my beloved people. I like to spend my time charting courses and going over maps in my head, so you can generally find me calmly relaxing on my dog bed. The crate training that I have received has been an excellent skill to acquire, and has provided me with a lot of time for relaxation. Let me help you plot a course to a future of loving happiness. I pledge to be the best first mate you have ever known!

Daisy

Carolina Dog Mix
3 years old
Female
49 pounds

He loves me…he loves me not…he loves me…oh, I hope that you will love me! I want to be loved so much I can taste it! It is sweet and sugary like a doggie gingersnap! But I want forever flavor, not just a sample. I had a really nice home for the past year, but sometimes things happen in life that turn your world upside down. I feel like Alice when she fell down the rabbit hole—I know there is a Wonderland waiting for me. I love to play! I know all sorts of tricks! I love to go for runs! I am very active and want to find a forever home that can keep up the pace! I am house trained, crate trained, love to play with other dogs (but don’t like to share my ball), can cuddle like nobody’s business, and am very loyal to those I love. I am wary of meeting New people and can be very protective of My people, so I will need  an adult-only, low traffic home where I will be allowed plenty of time to warm up to strangers, but when the feeling is right we will be bubbling with love in no time. The one thing I can’t seem to do is get along with cats, but who wants to be friends with those snooty butts anyway? They say if you love a flower to let it be, for if you pick it, it will cease to exist. But if you pick this flower then we will exist together!

Elizabeth Brennan

Akita Inu
4 years old
Female
65 pounds

No one ever wants their personal business splashed over the news and Internet. But there it was in all its glowing horribleness: my life as a neglected dog. “Product of a puppy mill,” I hear them solemnly whisper as I go by. I am not looking for pity. No, I didn’t have the best upbringing, but I will not let that define me as a dog or what I can do with my future. I know that I can make a family happy. It may not be that picture perfect family, but it will be a perfect family for me. A family that has the patience for my shyness and insecurities. A family that will commit to the time needed to help me blossom. A family that can embrace my imperfections. My family. I get along with other dogs well, and they do help me feel more confident, but I would really love to be the center of someone’s world, for once. Children 8+ would be wonderful to live with if they can be calm and respectful. I’m not into too much excitement, and I like things mellow. My nervousness comes from never having had consistency or positive engagement growing up, but it is one of the first things I would like to work on. I have been crate training since coming here and am making really good progress. It’s made me eager for all of the other things I can learn. But first I want to learn more about you!

Elliott

Papillon + American Eskimo Mix
2 years old
Male
22 pounds

Do you like to Samba? Rumba? Charleston? Two-step? Fox-trot? Twerk? Yes? Well, then I will be your dancing partner to the stars! I love to dance! I love to play! I like to burn energy all day! Then at night maybe we can do the electric slide to the couch and cuddle up! Obedience-wise, I’ll admit that I am a little rough around the edges, but I try to make up for it with my loving personality and positive attitude. No one really gave me the proper training; it was always easier to get rid of me. So maybe you could show me some of your sweet moves! Kids 6+ can hula with me. I can pop, lock and drop it with my dogs in the yard all day! But I will not dance battle cats; they always cheat. At night, once everyone is asleep I use my crate training as additional dance studio time—I can’t help it, I got the happy feet! So if you have been looking for a partner to follow your moves, I might suggest myself as your most adequate accomplice!

Kirby

Chihuahua Mix
3 years old
Male
8 pounds

Enter the Kirby Derby! The race starts here at Family Dogs, 11 a.m. sharp. The first loving person to meet me, fall in love, make a careful decision and a lifetime commitment to take me home makes it to the finish line. Start your engines! Seriously, I’m an awesome little prize. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I’m crate trained, good with gentle older children who understand how to keep their mitts outta my food bowl, great with other dogs who know how to keep their paws off of my bones, and heck, I even get along with cats! So why not toot my own horn? I deserve to! TOOT TOOT!!

Madison

Wheaten Terrier + Chow Chow Mix
5 years old
Female
48 pounds

They call me Madison ‘cause I am grand, dare I say, iconic…..you know, just like Madison Square Garden. The garden may be the heart of NYC but this Madison is sure to be the heart of your life. I was living at a rescue in CA where I was well loved but not so lucky…months of waiting and still overlooked, so I headed up here for a chance at a new life… I hope you can help! I’m a loving and mellow girl. Kids are cool, other dogs are cool, cats are cool…heck, I’m cool with most things. Well, except cameras. Those little black boxes scare the bajeezus outta me! As you can see, I am carrying a few extra pounds…but that’s no biggie, I just need a daily walk and fewer treats. I’m hoping this will be my shot at true love. I’d love to spend the rest of my years in a real home…can you help?

Mama

Chihuahua Mix
2 years old
Female
7 pounds

Now, babies, don’t you worry your pretty little heads ‘bout nothin’. Just come tell Mama all your troubles so I can make it all better! Is your heart feeling lonely? I can fix that. Is your lap a little empty? Mama’s got the cure for that. Need a little encouragement to get that body movin’? Mama likes to run and play, take brisk walks around the neighborhood…help you with that New Year’s resolution. There is no love quite like a Mama’s love…I give the best cuddles to adults and respectful children alike. I can share my heart and my home with cats or other dogs. I may be a little timid when visitors come by, but soon enough they will know Mama’s love. Now even a Mama’s got to take some lessons herself, so I have been crate training to help me learn patience and time management. There are so many things that I want to share with you, my loves, so come on in and let Mama show you just how special you are.

Mya

Chihuahua + Miniature Pinscher Mix
3 years old
Female
14 pounds

I know, I know, once you see my adorable face and soft loving eyes you will be transfixed like a sailor to a siren. But hark my lovelorn admirer; I am cautious to just hand over my heart. I need a family that will understand me fully; my ambitions, my dreams, my desires. Can you dream a little dream with me? Will you walk with me hand and paw, build me up, give me the life I have so longed for? A life of stability and security. A life of love and understanding. I can be reluctant at times, I know. But that doesn’t mean my love diminishes. My love for other dogs is indiscriminate, the heart wants what the heart wants, and the brain has nothing but conjecture. My love for children is solely placed on those of the 10+ category. My love for my crate has its good days and bad, but even with my reluctance to enter, once I am curled up and and comfy inside it brings me much comfort and security. My love for other creatures such as dogs is joyful and robust! But cats, no thank you!  With time I feel we can foster a love and understanding that not many have the joy to experience. Will you dream with me?

Piggy

Beagle + Dachshund Mix
2 1/2 years old
Male
20 pounds

“Little pig, little pig, let me come in!” “Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin!” It’s true, I can be shy and shut out strangers, but all I really want is love. Oh, cruel world, why must you torment me so! I know, I know, I must learn to trust others if it is love that I seek. But it is just so hard sometimes! How am I supposed to know who will be the person of my dreams? Maybe you can help me? Show me that there are good people out there. Show me that children over the age of 8 can be trusted to play nicely and treat me with respect. Can you give me the time to let my heart warm up to you? I get along well with the dogs and I have lived with cats before and get along just fine. I am house trained and my crate training is coming along great. Can you show me that not everyone is a big bad wolf? Then maybe we can build a happy little home together!

Princess B.

German Shepherd
8 years old
Female
51 pounds

The name’s Princess B. and soon you will see all of the reasons that’s what they call me!
B is for Brilliant, and boy, am I sharp! I can learn anything you wanna teach me. If I had thumbs I surely beat you at a game of chess.
B is for Beautiful, now that is plain to see. Any German Shepherd lover is sure to fall head over heels for me.
B is for Bold, which I am not. I’m a sensitive gal in desperate need of some TLC. Patience is key. I am learning to trust humans and canines, so I ask that I be treated with respect by both. Kids 10+ who know to treat me like a Princess will be welcomed with open paws, but no kitty cats for me.
B is for Bumpy, since that’s how my life has been, but I’m not bitter. I know that things are gonna get better; I just need a GSD-savvy person to show me the way.
B is for Bright, and that’s what I’m hoping my future will be….

Male

Think you’ll be glad to meet lil Ralphie? Oh, you definitely will be! I am one adorable little dude with a big personality, and pretty darn sweet once I get to know you—I just need you to take things slow at first. I was found as a stray, so not much is known about my past. I figure that with my good looks and endearing personality it shouldn’t be too hard to find a family that is willing to learn things as we go. I am already crate trained and housebroken, too. I do well with other dogs but can’t stand kitty cats, do well with respectful kids 10+ and am a real quick learner who’s truly eager to please. I’d say I am well on my way to becoming a wonderful little canine companion, now I just need your help!

Swizzle

Chihuahua
3 years old
Female
8 pounds

Hey y’all! This is the S to the Wizzle, your grandmaster Swizzle! I am kicking the funky cold medina and heating up the heartbeats with my signature snuggle style. When I was just a wee-izzle, my momma told me that I was destined for greatness. Little did she know that meant being the greatest dog you ever met in your life! I am a cuddle master by trade, with a double major in awesome and excellence. Like Rod Roddy used to say: “All this can be yours if the price is right.” Now I know you’re saying, “Here, Swizzle! Take my wallet, watch, keys to my car, deed to my house!” And I’ll be like, “No, child. You can’t purchase this piece of heaven materialistically. This is something that can only be bought with cold, hard, love, ya dig, brother?” So fork up them feels and you got yourself a deal! Respectful kiddos 5+ can roll with me. I get along with other dogs like a boss. Kitty cats don’t stress me none. I am a wizard of learning, and got my crate training secured like the national reserve. Don’t settle for less when you deserve the best—say Swizzle and watch all your dreams come Trizzle!

Dreams do come true, if only we wish hard enough. You can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it.

I am new to most things, and I will need someone to help me set a course straight to Never Never Land. The journey may be long and trying at times, but with dedication you will surely achieve wonderment! I can live well with kids so long as they are very gentle, and I adore other pixie pups! I can get along with kittens and cats and most other furry creatures. I just want to be treated kindly, so I look to treat others that way. Forever love, how do we get there? Second star to the right and straight on till morning. All it takes is faith and trust. Oh! And something I forgot: a bit of little pixie dust!

The docs  will try to tell you that I have  some minor  skin condition that’s simply gotten out of hand. But that is just a cover-up. I want to be open and honest with you if we are going to have a healthy dialogue in the future. I am actually part Werewolf. I know, I know, you thought we were all defeated years ago in the great Vampire/Werewolf wars of the 1300s. But we have just stayed out of sight. I speak with the royal we, but in fact I am only half Lycan. But I hope you are Lycan me a lot! Just kidding, sorry I’ll try to stay away from the jokes. But seriously, I need your help. I can’t stay in this public setting for too long. My kind is not safe against those fang fools, and I feel I might too easily be discovered here. Because of my inherent lunacy, I am only comfortable living in a household of adult humans. I can live with other dogs, and even cats, but no children; I don’t trust myself around them. I have been crate training since arriving here and I really feel it will come in handy in the future. You know, when that creepy white guy in the sky comes around once a month… It will be better for us all if I am secured in a safe place on those nights, or anytime I am to be left home unattended. I know this is a lot of added responsibility for someone just looking for a dog. OK, OK, I couldn’t help myself, the jokes just kept on rollin’. But seriously, I promise you that my loyalty and love will be challenged by none!

Walker

Yellow Labrador Retriever Mix
8 years old
Male

All right, keep stride with me, I got places to go and people to love. Let’s go, we’re walking, we’re talking…OK, I’ll start. My name is Walker and I am 8 years old. People have described me as uneasy, but a good boy. I need some stability in my life; I think that would help quell a lot of my stress, you know. I would also be a lot more receptive to positive-reinforcement training. I have had some negative experiences in the past, but I don’t like to talk about it. Forward and ever up! I get along with other dogs, but if you got cats they better run when they see me coming! I make no apologies; I just can’t stand those critters. Dog-savvy kids 10+ will be best for me because I take a little time to trust and grabby hands are no match for me. As with my crate training, I have that down. House manners, too; got those covered. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty more I want to learn, so I got the time to dedicate to learning all you want to teach me if you are game! Sound like a pretty good deal? Then come on and walk with me!

Check me out, sitting here looking all handsome; what a brave boy I am! I know, it might not seem like much to you, but if you only knew what my life used to be like. Sure, I was loved but living on the streets, me and and my dad both homeless…that’s a rough life. Now I have my chance at a real life, a real family, and real love. As you can imagine, I am pretty shy but I am trying real hard to trust. If you take things slow I’ll even let ya pet me and snuggle a little. Pretty brave, right? I will need a patient and gentle family, with people who understand how to treat me with love and respect. I won’t mind sharing my home with other dogs, but cats are a no-no for me. I’m a mellow fella, already crate trained, and I walk well on leash, but I just know there are so many more wonderful things I can learn. Starting with how to be a real family pet!

Yeppen

Labrador Retriever + Husky + German Shepherd Mix
1 year old

I have a thirst for love. Ironic, since my name is an Aboriginal word meaning water. Like water, you can’t hold it or mold it without the proper tools. I was given a pretty bum start to my life. Neglected by my first family and never showered with the love and attention a new puppy seeks. I am still young and have a lot of life ahead of me, but I am basically back to square one. It will take a strong commitment from you to help me become the dog I know I can be.. Only the most respectful children 10+ will be helpful in acclimating me to the new loving home I have pictured in my head. I see myself on a lush green lawn, laughing and playing with my loving family, soaking up the sun. But when I meet new people, dark clouds roll in and my anxiety takes over. I get along great with other dogs and would really like to have another to show me around and kinda lead the way for me. And I really like that I have been crate trained ‘cause it’s nice to have a place to chill out when things become too much. It won’t be easy, and it won’t be quick, but the love I have buried within me will be the greatest reward for my true, loving, forever family.

If you’re you interested in meeting me please send an email to bark@familydogsnewlife.org to set up an appointment.
