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.

April

Australian Cattle Dog + Weimaraner Mix
1 year old
Female
57 pounds

April here, to remind you there can be an endless spring… and you’ll find it in me! I am just like a blossom about to bloom: full of life and overflowing with possibilities. You see, I am a 12-month-old bundle of love, and I am just waiting for the whole world to open up for me. I imagine new friends sprouting up all around me since I do great with other big dogs here (but let’s be honest, I need some work on leash with other pooches), and sturdy children, too. But things aren’t so sunny when kitty cats are around! I am already housebroken and my crate training is going great and would love to continue that since I tend to be a bit of an escape artist from time to time, but there’s no doubt I’m just a youngster in need of nurturing and guidance.  Oh, how I would love to be your little spring flower, all year round!

1 year old-57lbs. My adoption fee is $220 and includes microchip & registration, spay, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.

Bart

Jack Russell Terrier + Italian Greyhound Mix
6 months old
Male
9 pounds

I didn’t do it, no one saw me do it, you can’t prove anything! Unless you are talking about me being cute! Then I did a whole bunch of that! Sure, I can be little mischievous sometimes, but hey, I’m just a puppy! This is supposed to be the best time of my life, right? So of course I am gonna cut loose a little. I mean, I have my whole life to be a grown-up, so right now I just wanna play and explore and learn what the world is about. But it would be real nice to have someone to show me the ropes and help boost my confidence. I am sure I can take a little time outta playing if you have some really awesome things to teach me! Sometimes I’m a little nervous when I meet new people so just give me some time to warm up and then we can be great friends.My crate training is really coming along, and it would be great to continue it my new home…I mean, you wouldn’t want me to eat your shorts, right!? If you like to have fun and are looking for a furry friend to join you, your other dog, cat, or respectful children 8+, then I would love to play!

Bill

Chihuahua Mix
4 months old
Male
5 pounds

Here is your Bill, sir. The total due is 88,000 hours of love. Are you able to pay that in full? Or would you like to spread it out over the next 10 years? I would be more than happy to accept your love for the next 10 years, hopefully even more! So how about you take me home and start paying your dues. I won’t mind if we have to share that love with other dogs, cats, or gentle children just as long as there is plenty of love and time left over for me—I am a puppy after all, so I’ll require all of the time, patience, and training you are able to afford. I know I am asking a lot, but I think it’s a fair bargain for a lifetime of friendship. Now pay up!

Daisy

Carolina Dog Mix
5 1/2 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!

5 1/2  years old-50lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes: spay, microchip, 1 month pet health insurance, reduced-cost training class, free vet exam, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.

Hooch

American Bulldog + Mastiff Mix
2 years old
Male
92 pounds (thin)

I am so very sweet and affectionate with people, boy o boy, I love people, people are soooo great, I am the best dog ever with people…..ok, ok I’m just trying to beat around the bush here, trying to sweeten you up a bit…the truth is, I am trying avoid telling you that I just don’t like other dogs. Nope, I insist on being the boss. People and me we’re tight. Kids 8+ who are big enough to handle my energy level and tendency to give hugs are cool too, but living with other dogs or cats is a no-go… I just wanna be your one and only. I still promise to make an awesome best friend, the biggest personality you could ever ask for. I am fun and goofy and oh-so snuggly. I am also crate trained, love to go for walks, am super lovable and… did I say affectionate?

Jojo

Chihuahua + Toy Fox Terrier Mix
9 1/2 years old
Male
12 pounds

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?

Lucky

Labrador Retriever + German Shepherd Mix
6 years old
Male
90 pounds

I got my rabbit’s foot, my horse shoe…Let’s see, I have my four-leaf clover, and my acorn… The penny I found on the sidewalk, my bamboo, I licked a frog and counted to seven, seven times… All right! I think I am ready! Let’s get me adopted!! What’s that? You think I am an amazing specimen of canine and you don’t think I will need all this stuff? You think my loyal personality, mature demeanor, big brains, and 90 pounds of handsome looks is enough for anyone to scoop me up? (Metaphorically lifting with the legs and a proper back brace) Well, thank you! I was a little worried. I mean, I get along great with all the other dogs here, am crate trained and housebroken, and won’t mind sharing my love with respectful older children 12+. I’m also very food motivated and eager to learn new things, but not always eager to trust new people…especially the doctor! I feel uneasy about being overly handled, so I ask that you take things slow and easy at first. You know something? I just may be all the luck I need to find myself the forever home I’ve been dreaming of!

6 years old-90lbs. My adoption fee is $160 and includes neuter, microchip & registration, 1 month pet health insurance, free vet exam, reduced cost training class, leash/collar, toy & treat packet, food sample.

Oso

Black Labrador Retriever + German Shepherd Mix
6 1/2 years old
Male
65 pounds

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?

Poppy

Australian Cattle Dog + Beagle Mix
2 1/2 years old
Female
20 pounds

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, but I do mind sharing my flower bed with cats- I’m a pretty bossy gal and like to pester them! Calm respectful children 14+, 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!

Sparky Beach

Shiba Inu Mix
5 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!

Walker

Yellow Labrador Retriever + Great Pyrenees Mix
10 years old
Male
60 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!
