Story
My nephew found a brindle Boxer-pit mix dog and named him Bandit. This is what he says about Bandit: I found him when going home from work one day and he was roaming the streets. I put my hand out and he put his head under my hand. I took him home and found out his owners abandoned him to the streets, they adopted him in Texas brought him to Tucson and 5 years later toss him out. They removed their information to all contacts with the dog, I been trying to take care of him until we can find him a home with a family or anyone that would take him into care, but we're going to be charged here in the apartments a lot of money that we don't have to keep this dog longer. He gets along with other cats in the home. He is hesitant with other dogs, he has the tendency to bark at people he doesn't know like when he goes on walks but won't bite when he gets close. He is potty trained; he doesn't know many commands. He has separation anxiety when he is left at home alone.

Story
National Adopt a Senior Pet Month - $0 Adoption Fee Hey there, I'm Odin, a chunky tripod who loves the simple pleasures in life. You know, snuggling, giving kisses, and going for leisurely strolls - long walks on the beach sound dreamy, but I'm perfectly content with walks along the road too! Here's a bit more about me: I may only have three legs, but I'm impressively fast when I'm excited, especially when it comes to seeing my favorite people. I might be a little shy at first, but don't let that fool you. In time, you'll find that I'm a loyal and amazing companion who's just waiting for the right match. Aside from my favorite humans and delicious food, I have a soft spot for belly rubs. Having a warm lap to snuggle up on while we watch movies would make me as happy as can be. If you're someone who appreciates the beauty of simplicity, enjoys a good snuggle, and is looking for a loyal companion, I might just be the one you've been searching for. Reach out to Lucy's Hope to learn more about me and how we can start our own adventures together. Let's make each other's dreams come true! Adoption application: https://bit.ly/44dKWUv Can't adopt?

Story
Hi there, I'm Frankie, and I've been on quite the journey. I've held many titles since then - "stray dog," "backyard dog," and now "shelter dog." But what I'm really hoping for is to hold the title of "family dog" in a loving home. I'm approximately 4 years old and ready to find my forever family. Here are some things you should know about me: I walk well on a leash, so we can explore together. I'm a bit selective when it comes to other dogs, so introductions are a must. No cats or small dogs for me, please. I'm an active and playful pup who loves toys. Let's have some fun! I especially love a good game of tug. I'm a pro at it! I'm best suited for a home with kids aged 12 and up due to my size and energy. I'm ready for a fresh start and a forever family to call my own. If you think we could be the perfect match, please complete an adoption application to learn more about adopting me. I promise to fill your life with love, fun, and endless tail wags. Let's make the next chapter of my life the best one yet. Please share this post to help me find my forever home! Adoption application: https://bit.ly/44dKWUv Foster application.
