Story
Bentley is a 13 year old Yorkie, born on 12/19/10. We have had him since he was 11 weeks old. He was our first baby/child. He is such an amazing dog. He is friendly and loves to snuggle and cuddle. He loves a throw blanket as well! As the years have passed and we now have two children, our lives are extremely busy with school, work, and sports. I don’t feel that we have the time we use to with having a dog. It has been a long discussion with our family, but we feel that now that Bentley is a senior dog he can certainly use more companionship than what we may be able to give him at this time. He has been the best pet to our family and to our children. As he has gotten older, his bladder has changed a bit and he benefits from more bathroom trips throughout the day to try to avoid accidents in the home. He is very healthy with the exception of doggie dental disease. We take him to his yearly check ups throughout the year, and he gets his teeth cleaned once a year. Vaccines are current.

Story
Hi there, my name is Pearl!I spent a long time as a stray dog until a nice family captured me! That time on the loose has left me a somewhat reserved and uncertain girl so I take a little bit of time to warm up to new people. I walk well on a leash (unless I see other puppers around! then I get a little excited). I am housebroken and my manners are so good, I can be left alone in the house! Once I settle in, I love snuggling with my person and lounging on the couch. I just need a loving and patient home. I would prefer a quiet home with children 15 and older, as well as no other animals. If you would like to give me a chance, then let's give it a whirl! ---If you are interested in adopting, please come prepared --bring a photo ID, proof of address, and everyone in the home including resident dogs with vaccination history. We are open daily 12-6pm. ---The Pennsylvania SPCA - Lancaster Center848 S. Prince St. Lancaster PA 17603Kennel #16516717-917-6979lancaster@pspca.org

Story
Hi, I'm Harper! I'm a cute little pittie with a heart of gold and the goofiest personality around. I am rather timid and it takes me a loooong time to make new friends but man is it worth it! I'm looking for a patient adult only home where I can be the only pet. That sounds like a lot, but let me tell you, I'm worth it! I love going for walks and I walk well on a leash. My short term foster said that I'm house broken, crate trained and I'm an excellent snuggler. Here at the shelter, I go on car rides and long hikes with my friends and I'm always a perfect partner. Do you have a quiet household, without a lot of visitors and want a dog that'll love you unconditionally? You found your match! Email my friends to learn more about me and to get an application.---This animal is available by appointment only - please reach out to schedule a visit with one of their handlers!---The Pennsylvania SPCA - Lancaster Center848 S.

Story
Howdy, I'm Matteo! I initially came to the shelter as a stray and after some time I found a wonderful home, but sadly they fell on hard times and had to bring me back to the shelter. Now my search begins again for the perfect family. I can be a bit sensitive with handling and shy around new people, but I do enjoy lots of attention and affection once I warm up. My previous adopter did mention that I can be especially weary of strangers coming into the home, so a quieter environment is preferable. I would like to be the only pet in the home because I don't want to share the spotlight. I also ask that any kids in the home be 8 and older who can respect my sensitivity and boundaries. If I sound like the right fit for you then come on over and let's meet!---If you are interested in adopting, please come prepared --bring a photo ID, proof of address, and everyone in the home including resident dogs with vaccination history.
