Story
Duck came to our family as a roadside rescue in 2022. He's the best dog we've ever had. Vet approximate him as about 7. Completely house trained. No accidents. No chewing. Doesn't need a crate, but does fine with one. Great with kids- he taught our baby how to walk by having him old onto his fur! Loves cats. Won't chase. Just likes to sniff and cuddle with them. He's a huge lover and wants to be near his person always. No aggression or behavior issues. He just needs more time than we can give him, between two full time jobs, two young kids, and a house that never stops breaking. Adoption fee will be donated to Allegan county shelter.

Story
Looking for a big, goofy, and sweet boy to join your home? Ace is your guy! He is 1 1/2 years old, will be 2 either the end of May or early June. It is with the heaviest of hearts that we must rehome him. He has nipped/pinched (did not break the skin) the cheek of two young family members. We have many young kids in our lives and cannot put ourselves or him through it again. He loves other dogs, cats and people—loves our preteens like crazy, but would do best in a household with someone who doesn’t have little ones around. Both incidents happened while around squealing and loud children in a gathering setting. He was overwhelmed. We pray there’s someone looking for a great snuggler, a goofy pup to keep you laughing, a friend for your dog, workout buddy or loyal best friend. We are trying desperately to avoid euthanasia.

Story
Pudge is a young male who was adopted a year and a half ago as a puppy. He is energetic, needs a big yard to run, is crate trained, and is very responsive to commands. His favorite activities are fetch, tug of war, his chew toys and just being involved with his owners. Due to our new home (small yard) and his tendency to play rough with young kids, there is unfortunately a need for change.

Meet Dumbledore! Dumbledore is a sweet guy who came in to us as a stray. He's the friendliest boy, and wants to cuddle and be friends with everyone he meets. He is definitely open to meeting resident dogs. This handsome boy will instantly make you fall in love! Dumbledore is a tall mixed breed weighing in around 80 lbs. He appears to have some hound or even great dane in him, but we really can't be sure. We estimate him to be 6-8 years old. He is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and heart worm negative. If you are interested in adopting Dumbledore, please fill out an application at al-van.org/adopt.
