Story
We are looking to re-home our 70lb, 2.75 year old Rottie. He unfortunately no longer fits in our household. I am devastated but unfortunately it's what is best at this time. He is house trained, knows place, knows sit, off, and stay, walks mostly in a heal on leash, loves going on long hikes or walks but also enjoys short ones. He enjoys sleeping in his crate at night and is crate trained. He knows gentle when taking treats but can get excited about it. He gets 2.5 cups of food in the morning and evening, he gets an omega3 pill in the mornings with his breakfast for a healthy coat. He has a flea/tick collar which should be good until October. He is up to date on his shots. He is a sweet boy who enjoys a shower when the shower head is close to his body but is scared of puddles of water and will walk around them. He needs someone who will love him and pamper him, he deserves the world! He is happy to curl up on the floor with you (or couch if you let him). He loves his beds!

Story
Eden is a year old. She is energetic, playful and a huge cuddler. She is rambunctious and will try to jump on you for kisses. We have to rehome because the other dog that lives in the house is territorial and becoming aggressive toward Eden. She was fostered in Texas, and came to her (what was supposed to be forever home) 2 weeks ago. We want her to find an amazing forever home where someone will adore and love her how she deserves to be.

Story
Meet Marco - He is a survivor. This is a story that will break your heart. Marco came to us with another dog (who has since been adopted). On a frigid January afternoon, Marco was found chained to a tree (with the other dog). The ground was frozen, with no grass in sight. Two metal buckets were left for the dogs. One with frozen filthy water and the other empty. Both dogs were emaciated and hovering to try and collect any heat they could from the frozen tree stump. If that wasn't enough, it is only due to a house-fire these (2) dogs were discovered. The fire department went to search around the home for anyone else left in the house, instead they found (2) dogs tied to a tree in the yard. Thankfully, Marco is with us now, and ready for a true loving home. Marco is very sweet with people he trusts but due to his past, he will need a savvy owner that can work with his guarding and show him the ropes on how to live in a home. Once he was removed from the property, he started to show some guarding behavior around his food (we can't really blame him!) Marco will need a home that will continue training so he can decompress from shelter life and begin the next chapter of his life "Adopted". He is appropriate for an adult-only home with no other animals. With everything this poor boy has been through, he still looks for love from humans, which is a great example of why dogs are the best creatures ever!

Sid has been waiting TOO long for his forever family to find him... This handsome boy has been waiting since 2017 for his forever family to come along. He has lots of volunteer buddies at the shelter who have amazing things to say about him. He is an active boy who loves long walks, but also will make the best tv watching companion. Sid is looking to be the only dog in the home, but he did live with a cat in his previous life. Sid is also house trained and enjoys going for rides and getting a puppacino!

Story
Meet Bandit - Our handsome 6.5 year old Hound mix. Bandit was surrendered to us by his owners due to behavior issues, in August 2018. They adopted Bandit from a local "no kill" rescue when he was a puppy, but sadly he ended up with us because they wouldn't take him back. Bandit is on the search for a new home with patient, loving, savvy, experienced owners. Bandit likes other dogs, and as per his previous owners, he is house trained and knows the commands "paw" and "down", and since being with us, and working weekly with his shelter buddies and he is excellent in training classes! Bandits ideal home is an adult only household that has experience with guarding or possessive behavior. Bandit is also looking for a quiet, low traffic household due to him being nervous of strangers. Training, or hiring a trainer is highly recommended to work on his stranger reactivity and guarding behavior. If you are interested in learning more on Bandit, contact our placement team at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter:E: adoption@hempsteadny.govE: foster@hempsteadny.govE: rescue@hempsteadny.govT: 516.785.5220#AdoptBandit #adoptme #houndmix #survivor #adoptdontshop #dogsofinstagram #dogsofig #adoptmeny #bruisednotbroken #dogsofny #dogsofnyc #dogsofli #adoptadogny #lookingforahome #longislanddogs #longislanddogmom #longislanddogdad #adoptionistheonlyoption #houndmix #houndforadoption

Story
Finding himself alone on the streets, Shawn saw an older lady with a dog, and started following them. She called the police, who came to her location, and called us to pick Shawn up. Back at the shelter, Shawn is an energetic, playful dog. He takes a minute to warm up to new people, enjoys treats, and is very engaging. At this time, we feel Shawn would thrive best in a solo dog home with kids 17 years and older. If you are interested in learning more, and getting the most up to date information on Shawn, please contact our placement team: T: 516.785.5220E: adoption@hempsteadny.gov E: foster@hempsteadny.govE: rescue@hempsteadny.gov#adoptdontshop #dogsofinstagram #dogsofig #adoptmeny #bruisednotbroken #tohasdogs #dogsofny #dogsofnyc #dogsofli #adoptadogny #lookingforahome #longislanddogs #longislanddogmom #longislanddogdad #adoptionistheonlyoption #pittielove #pittiesrock #pitsrule #ifitaintpit
