Story
He is a very sweet and loving dog! Showed up at our house as a stray. Unfortunately, we can’t have another dog right now. He is great with our other dog as well as our kids. He would make a great addition to any family. We just want him to find a good home.

Story
Hi, I'm Bella. I am a three year old American Pitbull Terrier (possibly mixed). I am a very hesitant, cautious, fearful dog. I don't like strangers and try to avoid them. I can be a flight risk when I'm trying to get away from a stressful situation. I am neutral to dogs, but it takes me a while to warm up to people and show my true personality. I would thrive best in a home that will allow me to get used to my environment slowly and not force unnecessary interactions. I enjoy frozen Kong treats and am decent on a leash. Once you take the time to let me get used to you , I am the sweetest girl who loves belly rubs and cuddles.

Story
Hi, I'm Harlem! I am an adolescent bully type terrier mix, but I am on the shorter side. I am a quirky guy and I'm looking for a dorky best friend to go on adventures with. Wanna nap on the couch? I'm there. Wanna hit the local parks? Let's go. I love participating in the staff dog training class. I give my handler my full attention and try hard to learn new skills, especially when treats are involved! If you're looking for a compact muscle buddy to exercise and hang out with, I'm your guy!

Story
Hi, I am Damsel! I am an adult Great Pyrenees Labrador Retriever mix. When I first came to ODAS, I struggled a lot with anxiety and being overstimulated, but with the help of staff, fosters, and visitors I have really come out of my shell! Tug toys are my favorite thing and I love to romp around when I get the zoomies! Treats, pets, and praise are also great ways to befriend me. I have big feelings about trucks, but I'm working on it with some help from a dedicated staff member.

Story
Hi, I'm Tobias! I am a medium sized mix between a German Shepherd and an American Pit Bull Terrier according to my previous owners. If you are looking for a friendly face to brighten your life, look no further! I am your ideal travel size walking and snuggle buddy. My energy levels are moderate, I listen very well, and I enjoy spending time with people I love. When you come to me I might be a little shy, but I am a walk and a pocketful of treats away from being your best buddy! If you have other doggie friends in the home, I will want to meet them first. I can also live with cats and older children. Your new handsome sweetheart is waiting for you!

Story
Hi, I'm Bobblehead! I am a young adult stout bully mix. I tried to audition for the next John Wick movie, but they said I was too friendly. Even though I don't have ears, my puppy dog eyes can melt anyone's heart, which is my strategy to get all the treats! I can sit nicely when asked and I like to play! We could play fetch with a ball or tug with a rope! I'm a bit too rough and tumble for a household with children. I love fast food, so cats and other small animals are a definite no for my new home. If you're looking to add a lovable smoosh into your adult only home, come meet me at the shelter!
