Adoptable Dogs


This is a list of dogs currently available for adoption at Family Dogs New Life Shelter.
We do keep this listing very current, so all dogs listed here regardless of the post date are still looking for homes. Because FDNLS is a no kill shelter all dogs who come into our care have a safe place to live until they are adopted, so some of our residents have been in our care for months or even years.

Austyn

Catahoula Leopard Dog + Australian Shepherd Mix
2 years old
Male
42 pounds

I’m Austyn…and I must admit, I am feeling pretty down…I had this really wonderful thing, but I just lost it, and I’m really hoping I can find it again soon. It was called a home. See, I’m a super-smart boy who is very loyal affectionate, and playful. I’m housebroken, crate trained,  I love playing with other big dogs (not the little ones though!), I enjoy a good game of fetch, am great at hunting cats, and am as devoted and protective as they come. See, that’s the reason I lost that valuable thing called a home. Once I had a family of my own I decided that I loved them so much that they didn’t need anyone else in their life. So I decided not to let strangers get too close, especially when we are out on walks- see I have this thing called leash reactivity which means that I get really defensive if people or other animals get too close when I am on lead. Sometimes I ‘d decide not to let that other little furry four legged companion get his fare share of love either…so that family decided that I needed a new home. Not because I did’t love them, but because I loved them a little too much…who thought too much love could get ya in trouble huh? Anyway, I suppose it really is best. I need a home without smaller animals or children, where I can receive all the training and guidance I need to overcome my fears and learn to be better about sharing all this love. So here I am, hoping to find what I’ve lost.

BG

Dalmatian + Pointer Mix
9 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 great with other bigger dogs, but I am not a fan of cats or small critters…I’m a chill girl who doesn’t like to be pestered, so I prefer furry friends who just want to hang out and cuddle; no running, romping, yappin or funny business.  And respectful children 12+, 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. I may be a lazy lady, but I do still like to work on my fitness, so walks around the neighborhood or strolls through nature 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; call me Queen Protector. Once you seen all the rest, come meet the best and get some of this Big Girl love.

Chance

German Shepherd + English Mastiff Mix
9 years old
Male
100 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 with other dogs at times, but when you get to be my age you just don’t put up with as much guff as you used to. I prefer that children around me should be 5+ and respectful of their elders. 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. My knees ain’t what they used to be, so 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.

Chester

Anatolian Shepherd + Border Collie Mix
2 years old
Male
77 pounds

I am not a cheetah, but if you wanted to throw some Cheetos my way I would not deny your gracious offering! In fact I would probably do some tail wagging, which is much more exciting than it sounds…I’m a pretty insecure fella, and it take me time to trust new people, but I do love treats! So it’s quickest way to my heart. I like to treat folks to my own brand of reward, just as much as I like snacking! What kind of reward, you ask? Well, for starters I would like to be your #1 canine! I am loyal and protective, eager to please, very smart, and did I say protective? If I have to share the spotlight with another fur-haver, I could do that too since I get along great with other dogs and cats. Remember how much I love treats? Well, if we’re being totally honest here, I don’t like to share them. Once I think something is mine, and I value it greatly, I’m just not willing to give it up; so I do need a family without children, where all members are patient, gentle, and able to understand that I have a few quirks. I do promise to reward this new family with my vast knowledge of crate training and my excellent housebreaking skills! I got all kinds of tidbits of deliciousness to share with you, so let’s see if we can combine our goodies and get that super flavor of love!

Cookie

Pit Bull Terrier Mix
2 years old
Female
50 pounds

Hi! I am sweet as a Cookie…and that’s my name too! I’m really hoping that you are the match I’ve been searching for. I have excellent house manners: I am housebroken, crate trained, I don’t grab food off tables, rummage through trash bags or chew on anything that isn’t mine (furniture, shoes, kids’ toys, etc.). I am great with kids, quiet and I love being with my family, I do great in car rides and I am oh so smart. I may not be ready to live with cats or other female dogs, but I’m always ready to make new people friends. I would love a fenced back yard so I can roam and be off leash, as dog parks aren’t really my thing. I really need someone who can continue my training to be less reactive on leash when I see other dogs. Lucky for you, I am food and praise motivated and I love to learn if you have the time and patience to learn with me. I’m a happy, sweet girl and I will follow and love you until the end of time! Come in and see how sweet I am!

Corkscrew

Basset Hound + Labrador Retriever Mix
2 years old
Female
38 pounds

Is that love I see leaking from your heart? Maybe you should put a cork in it, just until someone can come along and absorb all that excess love. So go ahead, seal it up and then hurry down to meet me. It will take only a split second for me to uncork that heart of yours; the love will be flowing freely, and I will just soak it up! There is nothing I enjoy more than love. Giving it, getting it, sharing it…with other dogs, with dog-savvy cats, with sturdy children. You name it. I also appreciate a good wine cellar (I think you humans call them crates) and won’t mind spending my nights resting comfortably there so that I can become perfectly “aged” besides it will really help take my house-training to the next level! I’m eager to please, and positive reinforcement will go a long way in helping me become the confident, well-trained pooch I know I can be. Not only will I absorb all the love and affection you have to offer, I will also soak up all the training you can give me! So pop the top and let’s get this love party started!

Cracker Jack

Scottish Terrier Mix
2 years old
Male
11 pounds

Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out but please avoid the crowd;
Just show some patience to Cracker Jack,
And I promise I will soon love you back.
Let me root, root, root for a place to call home,
If you pass me over it’s a shame.
For it’s one, two, three strikes you’re out,
So put your heart into the game!
Oh man, what a little treat I am. Fun and friendly and so affectionate, but don’t move too fast! I may be wagging my tail and singing your praises, but it don’t always mean I trust ya. I need a little time to really get to know you before you can expect to be hands on. That means a low-traffic home without children is a must. I do like to live an active lifestyle and love having a good time, so other dogs to play with and boss around would be great fun, just don’t expect me to share my peanuts or popcorn with them! If there are cats around I’ll surely have them running the bases, so best I have a kitty free home. Let me root, root, root for a place to call home. If you pass me over it’s a shame!

Cuddles

Dachshund + Rat Terrier Mix
6 years old
Male
10 pounds

Some things just don’t need an explanation, like my name. There’s really no reason for me to explain what a sweet, gentle, cuddly boy I am, or that I am fragile and sensitive yet loyal and protective. OK, maybe I do need to explain, since I probably won’t show off my stellar cuddling skills on our first date. See, I’m pretty shy and unsure until I learn that everything is safe. I’m happy to snuggle up with other dogs, I’ll even give a cuddle to kitty cats, but children need to be 8+ and on their best behavior if they wanna get any smooches from Cuddles here. At 6 years old I’m well past all the puppy nonsense, but in Terrier years that’s only like half my lifespan! So I still have plenty of love to give and many years of companionship to offer a laid-back family longing for a little lap buddy who is already housetrained, crate trained, and eager to love. What do you say? Wanna cuddle?

Daisy

Carolina Dog Mix
4 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!

On your mark! Get set! Go! And they’re off! Welcome to the 2016 Family Dogs Love Derby! I am your host, Derby, and I will be bringing you play-by-play analysis of this momentous event! For those of you unfamiliar with the Derby, here is a quick recap: I am Derby and I have been looking for a forever home ever since I was picked up off the streets. Entering into a system of unfamiliarity and an ambiguous future, I decided to create my own destiny. After arriving here at Family Dogs, I founded the Love Derby to help me find love in no short order! It’s a race to my heart, and you’re in first place! Bold, I know, but I can’t wait around here forever! A couple of obstacles to look out for while you are out on the course are my overprotective nature, my aversion to cats, my need to find a home with respectful children 12+, and my bossy attitude with other dogs, regardless of their size. But once you cross the finish line and reach the winner’s circle of my heart, you’ll be rewarded with my excellent personality, exceptional crate training and housebreaking skills, prize-worthy loyalty, and blue-ribbon cuddle powers! So pick up the pace cuz if you win the Love Derby you’ll get to love Derby!

Dexter

Collie + Labrador Retriever Mix
4 1/2 years old
Male
58 pounds

Welcome to my laboratory! I am conducting a little experiment; I want to see how long it will take to cultivate my new forever family.  Very selective efforts are being made to find suitable lab partners. Only the most patient and gentle people are allowed to observe my work, which means I’m not looking for any assistance from rowdy young children. I do have plenty of energy to burn, so I don’t want to spend all my time in a lab coat- I want to get out and have a good time, I just need lots of reassurance that everything is gonna be ok. I don’t mind having other dogs around; I find that they can be very useful in providing certain materials that may otherwise be hard to come by, like nonstop games of chase and wrestling. I treat cats in the same manner, but unfortunately they don’t seem to enjoy it as much as I do so I do need a cat free home. It should come as no surprise that I have the intellect to learn all kinds of stuff, so I’m always looking to continue my studies but rest assured I am already housebroken and know my basic commands. For extra-super-top-secret experiments I prefer to retire to my crate for the quiet time and extra concentration it affords, plus having a safe place really helps ease my stress if I’m feeling anxious. If the science of canine companionship is a passion for you too maybe we can exchange research notes! I am getting really close to breaking the love genome and any input you could provide will be well rewarded…with my heart.

Gertie + Rufus

English Bulldogs
7 / 6 years old
Female / Male
70/ 60 pounds

Commitment is something that me and BFF Rufus know a lot about. We have been mates for as long as we can remember, and nothing is going to tear us apart. I know it is probably a lot to ask for someone to open their home to not just one, but two sourmugs. But when you got a good thing going you can’t just throw it to the wind. We are both pretty docile and very loving, we’re also pretty darn protective. We are both very affectionate and loyal companions once we warm up. I tend to run the show, and won’t hesitate standing up for my man!We’re uninterested in making friends with cats but we could live with another dog, but honestly when you got a dynamic duo like us, why would you need a third wheel? We are both crate trained and housebroken. You know what they say— two wet noses are better than one! So you just might have hit the love jackpot!

Grandma Callie & Grandpa Scrappy

Pit Bull Terrier
10 years old
Female & Male
67 & 65 pounds

They say a dog gives unconditional love…Sure, we can do that. After all, we’ve got plenty of practice…not only loving people, but loving each other for 10 whole years! In our golden age we sure have blossomed into well-balanced, easygoing companions. Other dogs are fine by us; just don’t expect us to share our love with cats. If you’re a family with gentle and respectful children, we’re all for it, so long as they are old enough to understand how to treat their elders with kindness. We’ve taken nicely to crate training, walk nicely on leash, and we’re even housetrained. We’ll love taking easy strolls around the block, or lounging in the backyard while you garden…nothing too wild and crazy, just some quality time with the ones we love. How’s that for unconditional? Well, I suppose we do have just one condition…you must love us back.

Hi! I am Jojo! Wake me up before you go-go! Don’t leave me hanging on like a yo-yo. Cuz that’s a no-no! Just kidding, except for the part about my name. You know how Jojos go so well with chicken strips? Well, that’s what I am looking for…the chicken strip that will go perfectly with this Jojo! It’ll have to be a special recipe, since I am a pretty special lil potato. I’m longing for an understanding, loving, and patient person who will help me become the best dog I can possibly be. I have a long road ahead of me, but I will try my best. With consistency and positive reinforcement I will be on my way to learning to trust again in no time. I get along with other dogs very well, and cats don’t bother me, but I will need an adult-only home—grabby hands and the youthful energy of children is just too much for me. I do love to get gentle scratches behind the ear and snuggle in the blankets, and I will stick by your side like glue…just give me a little time to trust you. I also love to play with my toys, I enjoy going for brisk walks around the neighborhood, and my crate training is top-notch! So what do you say? Wanna be my chicken strip?

Transferred here, transferred there… Rescue is hard! I hear this will be my last stop, thank goodness! So, anyway, all this moving around has made me a bit uneasy at times. I will just need someone who can give me a little time to adjust and settle in. I get along okay with cats, and dig other calm dogs too. My crate training is noteworthy, and I won’t mind sharing my heart with respectful kids 10+. So what do you say? Looking to add a little love to the family… Junior Love, that is?

If I had a mirror and I looked into it, do you know what I would see?  I would see a glorious, happy girl smiling back at me.  I am a true treasure with a heart of gold and a personality like sunshine.  I have a great big smile that will warm your heart on even the loneliest days.  I am enjoying all of my doggy friends here, but I’m not look to befriend any kitty cats. I am working real hard on minding my manners and have mastered many of them- like crate training, house training and basic commands. I am people focused and eager to please, so continued training with me will be a cinch as long as you are patient and gentle with me.  I lack a little in the self-confidence department, so a home with calm children 10+ who understand how to respect my boundaries will be best. Look in the mirror, now what do you see? The future human who’ll love me!

Aloha kakahiaka. (Hello, good morning.) Pehea ‘oe (How are you?) Me? You know, I thought I’d find the mainland pretty boring, but to be honest, I’m glad to be off of that island! I mean, I like paradise and all…surfing every day…hot beach babes…but truth be told, I was getting a little bored. I was searching for a nice family to take me in and love me, but it’s hard to find a real long-term commitment on an island full of tourists. So here’s the scoop: I’m a very sweet boy, quite affectionate, very people focused, and eager to please. I do great with other dogs, hate cats, walk well on a leash, know how to sit and stay when asked, and I’m doing great with my crate training. I do have a funny front foot, some people call it deformed…I call it character! Besides, I think it is pretty awesome since it looks like I’m giving you the Hawaiian Shaka sign! All in all, I’m a pretty rad dude, and I hope you’ll consider adding me to your family. A hui hou. (Until we meet again)…. Hang loose!

Maurice

German Shepherd
1 year old
Male

Hey y’all! Maurice is in the house! Let’s get this party started right! Let’s get this party started quickly! I am a young, fun, and huggable type of guy. I like to run and play all day! I can get the yard hyped up and keep the energy going. I am looking for a family that is not just on my level, but looking to get to the next level! I wanna do all the adventure time stuff the Northwest has to offer that I have heard so much about. I am a Cali transplant and the Golden State is cool and all, but it was a mess on my fur, ya dig? I think my shining locks are more accustomed to the hiking, camping, tide-pool searching, mountain-climbing type of life. So active peeps only must apply to be in my posse. I can run with the sturdy little ones so long as they aren’t going to get knocked down by my puppy exuberance, and I love to play with the dogs in my play group well, but as much as I hate to say it, I can’t party with cats. I have had a few bad experiences in the past, they never clean up after themselves and in the morning all the plants are chewed up. So I just don’t send them invites any more. I may need to focus on my studies a little more, so if you got some things to show me I could totally be down. Show me the treats and we’ll get this learning thing on lock! I have already learned how to keep my crate clean and proper like it was nothing, so I know I can tackle whatever else there is to know. Maurice is here to rock it till the breaka breaka dawn!

My Stats:

Chocolate Labrador Retriever
5 years old
Male
76 pounds

Nickname: Pin-Ball Boy

Favorite Activities: Fetch. Fetch. Treats. Fetch. Playing in the water. Fetch. Playing tug, getting pet and following the sound of your voice. I am a super goofy guy who has some troubling seeing- which is where I get my nickname- I tend to bump into things for a while until I get familiar with surroundings.

Pet Peeves: Stairs are big one, those things are tough for me to master. I’m a little too curious of new things and I like to use my mouth to explore, so small kids 8+ are more my style.

Come in and meet me so we can get to know each other better!

So I hear you’re looking for a new best friend? Someone who is a real sweet heart…well, I may be just who you’re looking for! I am O-so affectionate and O-so loving. If you’re looking for someone to accompany you on your daily walk or jog, a buddy to tag along on your weekend hikes, or a pal to take to the beach, I’d be more than happy to join since I am O-so playful and enjoy a good time. How about a friend for your other dog? I am O-so lovable and affectionate, I’ll make a wonderful companion for your other dog or respectful older children, but I am not O-so willing to share my home with cats. Some people say I’m O-so quirky; I had a really rough puppy-hood that left me with a neurological condition called epilepsy , but don’t worry, aside from an occasional love obsession with going after my tail (I’m pretty sure its playing hard to get) you’d never even notice! I’m keeping my crate O-so clean and tidy, such a great start to all the other awesome stuff you can teach me…since I am O-so smart. So how about it… don’t I sound O-so right?

Loyal. Courteous. Dependable. These are core values that I feel are getting lost with the dogs in America today. Hi, I am Otis Russell. I want to win your vote to become your Local District Domicile Dog Representative. As your LDDDR, I will take the fight for the hearts and minds of our community to the streets. I won’t hide in some government crate out of touch with what’s really going on. I will put paws to pavement, shaking hands and warming laps of respectful children 10+. I try to contain myself and be respectful of other dogs and I will make darn sure no cats are allowed to terrorize our community. I have a fire of companionship burning inside me, and I want to ignite the torch that will light the way for your family out of the darkness that is petlessness. I have dreams and goals for our neighborhood, and I need your help to bring them to fruition. I hope I can count on your vote. I am Otis Russell, and I approve this message.

Just a timid flower, waiting to take root in a place I can call home. What do you think? Are you willing to take me in and let my heart blossom? In turn I promise to be your devoted companion. I will be pleased to sit by your side, receiving the occasional pat on the head. I will be eager to go for a morning walk or have a fun day playing in the back yard. I will make friends with your other dog, but I might insist on being boss, and I might not even mind sharing my flower bed with cats- as long as they don’t mind a good chase! Calm respectful children 12+, are welcome too. I also keep my little flower pot, aka crate, free of debris or refuse. It may take me a moment to trust, but if you are patient and seeking a new best friend I will root myself right in your heart!

2 years old-20lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes spay, microchip, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

Well, I am past my teenage years, but I can still be a little witchy. I have had a rough life so far, and really I don’t like to talk about it. Let’s just say It has left me with isomer insecurities when meeting new people. So I will need a very calm, patient, and understanding person to work a little ‘magic’ on me. I know I would do best in an adult-only home without a lot of strangers coming and going. If you think you see potential inside of me, please don’t be discouraged if it’s not the fireworks you imagined when we meet. I am still trying to perfect my firework spell. I do hit it off with other dogs well though, and I don’t mind living with cats. Crate training here has been fantastic and it gives me a quiet place to study my grimoire. True love is something that can’t be replicated even with magic, because it is something that exists only in the heart. But together maybe we can conjure up something special?

Shiba Inu Mix

Male

Life’s a beach, so why not let the sparks fly! I’m all revved up and ready to go, I am a lil Sparky plug, and I am firing on all cylinders to give you some love! Feisty and full of fun, just looking for some fine tuning. A Shiba mix no doubt, I’ll need a person familiar with our intelligent, lively, and brave nature! I’m loving and loyal, very people focused, super affectionate and I adore attention. I do not, however, adore cats or sharing my goodies—so keep your paws outta my food bowl, ok?! That also means a home with no children for me. I do love to romp and rough house with other dogs and won’t mind sharing my home with a well-matched canine companion. I may have attitude to spare and energy to burn, but I also have some excellent house manners, am already crate trained, ride well in the car ,and know my basic commands. So come on, let me show you what it feels like to be loved!

Well, I am not as quick as I used to be, but I still got plenty of get-up-and-go! I don’t say I’m slowing down, I just brake a little more before the turns! My hips just aren’t what they used to be, but I still got a race to win! First prize is your heart, and no one is going to take you away from me! It’s a mad dash for love, and I have all the winning features of a first-place dog! I get along great with other dogs, I get along great with cats, and I am doing great with my crate training! I am oh so friendly and people focused, pretty happy-go-lucky until you start messing with my food bowl; that’s when things get serious. So I do need a family without children, where all members are able to understand that I will not share. Now don’t get caught with your shifter in the wrong gear, get down here and meet me in the winner’s circle!

Walker

Yellow Labrador Retriever + Great Pyrenees Mix
8 years old
Male

These paws were made for walking, and that’s just what I’ll do, one of these days this boy is gonna walk right next to you! I would love to take easy strolls by your side, or just lounge around on the couch by your side, or hang out in the backyard by your side…I think you get my drift: you’ll never get too far without your Walker! 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 new people and grabby hands are no match for me. As far as my crate training, I have that down. Housemanners, 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!
