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
3 years old
Male
50 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.

Bear

German Shepherd + Shar Pei Mix
5 years old
Male
48 pounds

Grizzly Bear? Black Bear? Oh no….Teddy Bear!!! What a sweet honey bear I am. Handsome, too, with a big smile and bright eyes. Not to mention pretty easygoing and laid back. I am already crate trained, and rumor has it I may be housebroken, too. I’ve had a bit of training but would love to continue obedience training, agility training, therapy dog training—anything you wanna teach me! I do well with other dogs, hate cats, and enjoy the company of respectful children 6 and over. So how about you bring the family in to meet this lover Bear….

BG

Dalmatian + Pointer Mix
11 1/2 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 10+ 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.

Chase

Australian Shepherd + German Shepherd Mix
3 years old
Male
60 pounds

I have been chasing love, but somehow it keeps getting away from me! I get so close, and then it just disappears. I feel it is close, almost close enough to grab it! I’m willing to share the track with other dogs and gentle children 10+, but I’ll have pesky kitty cats running laps, so a cat-free home is a must! I do get a bit uneasy in new situations: my heart gets to racing and my nerves build up and sometimes I just don’t know what to do with myself! A patient leader to guide me and help me feel safe and secure is just what I need. I’m already housebroken, crate trained too, and I even know some basic commands. So sit back and buckle up because the Chase is on!

Cubbie

Black Labrador Retriever Mix
2 years old
Female
70 pounds

Been in rescue too long, this is sure to be my finale. My love talk has turned into a love rally. I’m on the mainland now but I used to live on Maui. I want to invade your heart and vacay down in Cali. I’m your girl all the time, got my heart on the line. The irony is your love is always on my mind. You eyeing me like I am so special I couldn’t actually exist. Boy, I know you want this happiness. I am Cubbie Barkar AKA ‘Love is all that matters.’ Rompin’ with other dogs, playin’ with kids, sure, my love can stretch that far. That means your heart needs to be up to par. Past love lost, been found abandoned on life’s highway. Looking for love and adventure? Then listen when I say: Cubbie is the girl for you, so long as you’re here to stay.

Daisy

Carolina Dog Mix
5 years old
Female
50 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!

Dill

Siberian Husky + Border Collie Mix
6 months old
Male
53 pounds

Ok, so I’m in a bit of a pickle here, and I’m hoping you can help. I’m without a home, and I could really use a new one! Oh, don’t worry—Dills can be sweet; we’re not all sour! I’m definitely a sweet pickle…one without all that sour brine. I’m a young pickle who will need plenty of training, guidance, and TLC. A home with sturdy kids 4+ would be great, and I love to play with other dogs but can’t help getting a little sour around cats. My crate training is coming along real well, but there are so many other things I still need to learn. How about you help me outta this pickle and make Dill the newest member of your family?!

Australian Cattle Dog + Boxer Mix
6 years old
Female

They say a dog gives unconditional love…Sure, I can do that. I’ve plenty of practice and at the great age of 6 I have blossomed into a well-mannered, loyal companion. Other dogs are fine by me, and even cats can share in the love. If you’re a family with gentle & respectful children, I’m all for it, so long as they are old enough to understand how treat me with kindness. I’m taking nicely to my crate training, and I even know a few basic commands. I’ll love taking easy strolls around the block or lounging in the back yard while you garden…nothing too wild and crazy, just some quality time with the one I love. So how’s that for unconditional? Well, I suppose I do have just one condition…you must love me back.

49 pounds

Gosh darn it, don’t I just have the cutest little name? My mama done good with that! It matches my cute little face, my cute little rump, and my pretty little eyes. Yup, I’m just a sweet little ‘ol Georgia Peach! I’m young, active, enjoy the company of gentle and respectful children 12+,  like playing with the other dogs from time to time and I surely hate kitty cats! Sure, I could use a little more in the training department, but I’m smart and super loyal, so that should be fun! Obedience classes would be great socialization too, which I could benefit from…since I get a pretty nervous around new people. A good confidence boost should do wonders for me! This whole rescue business has my head spinnin’, and I can’t tell which way is up! But I promise, you help me find the surface, and I’ll promise you to be the sweetest companion I can.

Gertie + Rufus have a pending adoption

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 so we do need a home without children. 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!

Life is a challenge, and we are all granted obstacles to overcome that make us stronger and more resilient than when we started. Why should life be so hard? Well, without difficulty there would be no triumph. I have yet to find my happy ending, but I have not given up. I know I can be the greatest dog anyone has ever loved! Sure, I may be shy at first, and it may take me a little time to trust new people. But I do know that there are people out there who are truly wonderful, and that is why I won’t give up hope. I am house trained and crate trained, do great with kids 6+ who are gentle and respectful, and get along with other dogs and cats, and once you earn my trust, I am one heck of a cuddle monster. You’ve heard that saying: work hard and you reap the rewards of your labor. Well, in this case, your bounty will be my heart and all that it contains.

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?

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?

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 and a bossy lady! 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!

No need to try and impress me with fancy stuff, I don’t need designer dog beds or diamond collars; that’s just not the kind of girl I am. I care more about personal connections than showboating. I mean, I lost an eye and don’t even miss it one bit! It’s funny how something as abstract as love can be so much more valuable than tangible possessions. That is the kind of family I am looking for: one that tries to impress each other with actions of the heart. Good deeds are what get you a ticket to paradise, and I want to make sure I have a first-class ticket! I will need extra TLC since I can be a little timid with new people. A good confidence boost is what I need! I am crate trained, and with gentle guidance I can learn whatever you want to teach me. First on the list should be learning to share, since I have shown that I’m not always willing to give up my goodies.  I do get along with respectful kids 8+, but if we’re being honest I’d prefer to be the only furry four-legged kid in your life. Now don’t you think I’m pretty impressive!?

Snookie, sweet as strawberry streusel… Sensitive and smart…truly special. Spectacular, in fact. Sure, I could use a little more training and lots of love—couldn’t we all? Surely it’ll be worth it for a sensational pooch like me. I am crate trained and housebroken already…that’s a pretty solid start, don’t you think? I am great with other dogs and children, enjoy a game of chase the cat now and then, too. So why don’t you head straight here to Family Dogs and scoop sweet Snookie up!

5 years old-22lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes microchip & registration, spay, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

Sparky Beach

Shiba Inu Mix
3 1/2 years old
Male
11 pounds

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!

Stewart has a pending adoption

Boxer
3 years old
Male
55 pounds

Just look at this mug! Is this not the best lookin’ face around? And check out these pecs! Did you see my six-pack? Sure, I spend a lot of time at the gym, and I can play a mean game of fetch… a guy’s gotta keep up his physique, right? But don’t act like I’m just a meathead…this big ol’ heart of mine is just as impressive as my handsome face and toned body! Truth is, I am a real sweet guy. Unless you are a kitty cat! I do get along great with other dogs, and I enjoy the company of sturdy children who can handle my size—I would feel real bad if I accidentally knocked your toddler over, ya know? I am crate trained already and do know some basic commands, but I would like to know more… Maybe you can teach me!? Just take me home so we can get started!

Sydney

Yellow Labrador Retriever + Golden Retriever Mix
8 years old
Male
86 pounds

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
71 pounds

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 12+ 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. 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!

Zeke

Norwich Terrier + Cairn Terrier Mix
18 months old
Male
11 pounds

Fine, I’ll admit it. My name is Zeke and I have little-man syndrome. It just takes me a minute, or a day, to get to trusting new people. Once I get to know you I’m real sweet, but before I know someone I act like a real tough guy. (Shhhh, don’t tell anyone, but I’m not a tough guy, I’m actually pretty insecure and scared.) I really do want to get to know new people and new things and learn to trust. I just need your help making me feel safe and secure, and helping me learn a little impulse control. I love other dogs, and I love to roughhouse with kitty cats too. How about you give me a chance? I just need a family with plenty of patience, lots of love, and no children. A home where someone understands my quirks and is happy to work with them; a place where someone will teach me that it is OK to be loved… could that be you?
