Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Meet Abby. She is one of the 7 we took in from a hoarding case where the dogs were only fed bread and water.  The bread was still in the bag.  Her personality has really come out since she came to the rescue. She takes a little time to get used to new people, but once she does she is yours.  She  is a love bug, enjoys her dog friends, and likes to run around in our play yard. Abby was born around 08/2018, she weighs 18 pounds, and is  $300 to adopt.   You can apply for Abby at www.adoggie4you.org. This dog is currently in Texas; however, it can be transported to Washington, Portland (Oregon), Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Chicago, Des Moines, Omaha, Cincinnati, Lexington KY or all along the East Coast. If transported, there is an additional transport fee of $225   . We do not transport to Rhode Island or Massachusetts due to their regulations.Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.February 22, 2024, 2:25 pm

Story
Hello world, my name is Plumber! I am a very cute, 3 year old, 20 pound, Boston Terrier lady. That's right, I'm a dainty lady who can also replace your kitchen faucet! I'm a pretty laid back girl. I coexist peacefully with other dogs as long as they don't invade my space, but I don't need to play with them. I think I'd probably be fine with cats and respectful kiddos, too. I'm working on potty training and my foster mom is helping me get the routine down! I'm already crate trained and I'd love to learn some basic commands with my future family! Speaking of my future family, I would love to find a family who will be patient with me as I get the hang of being part of the crew. I love to be with my people and I will give you lots of my love! I also promise to entertain you with my piggy snorts :) If you're looking for the cutest lil meatball, here I am! Submit an application! My adoption fee is $625.

Johnny's friendly nature extends to his interactions with other dogs, making him a great companion for canine playdates. His good leash manners make walks a delightful experience, showcasing his adaptability and ease of handling.

Consider making Johnny a part of your family, and experience the joy of having a snuggly, well-mannered companion by your side. With his loving nature and positive attributes, Johnny has the potential to bring warmth and happiness into your home.

Story
Hi, I'm Willow! "Wherever you stray I follow I'm begging for you to take my hand" Any Taylor Swift fans out there? I'm begging for you to take "my leash" and I'll follow you home! You should know that like Taylor, I am a strong, independent woman. I enjoy taking sniffy walks outside, training to get my favorite treat, and posing for pictures. I also love to snuggle, run around in a yard, potty trained, and crate trained. I can take a second to warm up to new people (What if you are secretly paparazzi??) but love my people once I can trust them. Due to my cautiousness, I would thrive with older teens in the home. I would also love a family who can help me work on cooperative care. Im not a fan of the vet and other husbandry care, so a slow, fear-free approach is best for me! I am an All-Star dog! My adoption appointment includes a discussion with our Training Team, and I will go home with my very own no-pull-harness and a few enrichment goodies to help get us off to a good start. To learn more about me or to schedule an appointment to meet me, email info@ahconnects.org (please include your name and phone number), and the staff will be happy to help you! I hope to meet you soon! Our dogs and puppies go home spayed/neutered, microchipped, heartworm tested (6 months and over), and up to date on core vaccines, heartworm, flea, and tick preventatives. Their adoption also includes a free-vet exam at one of our participating veterinarians.

Story
Rudy is a 1.5 year old, 40lb terrier/pug mix looking for his new home! He loves to run around investigating the grounds and rolling around in the grass. He has great form with summersaults too. Rudy is a nervous dog who will need a less busy home with plenty of patience. Ideally, he would do best with someone with experience with nervous dogs. He needs consistency and routines so he can comfortably expect what is coming.
