    Hayes

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Hayes is a handsome pup who is full of love and affection. He's the perfect low maintenance companion who thrives on attention without being rude about it, and we think he's going to make some lucky person very happy. Hayes loves meeting people and immediately wants to cuddle them and kiss them all over. He snuggles like a champ and does a lot of napping - he will lay his head on your lap and cuddle his body as close to you as possible. He falls asleep fast and has an adorable snore, but when he's awake, Hayes has a lot of energy. He loves his playtime and will play until he's completely exhausted. He's always up for an adventure, would make a great running or hiking partner, and does great in the car, immediately sitting down to look out the window or laying down for a nap. Hayes is house and crate-trained and walks wonderfully on leash. He stays right by your side, doesn't pull and is very mindful of his person. He knows to sit and give you a kiss before he starts to eat and really just wants to please you and learn as much as he can to make sure he's being a good boy. He seems to say thank you throughout the day for everything you do for him; he is thankful for his toys, his bed, his food, and he shows it by giving you kisses, listening and always approaching you on your terms and not his. Hayes has been affectionate and playful with the Shitzu and boxer/pittie mix in his foster home, though him and the grumpy resident German Shepherd don't get along. He enjoys the company of dogs, but can have a rough and rowdy play-style, so would do best with a well-matched doggie sibling. On top of being a wonderful companion, Hayes is a seriously gorgeous dog. He has a shiny, silver coat with his chest and paws dipped in white, and his eyes are a beautiful olive brown. Be ready for compliments when you're out and about, because he's going to get lots of them. Hayes is truly a wonderful dog who doesn't ask for much - just a home with active people who will give him plenty of attention and include him on their adventures. If that sounds like yours, come meet him!

    Ben Hoku

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Boxer
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Boxer / Australian Kelpie. Ben Hoku is a silly pup that will keep you laughing with his goofball antics - just wait until you see him rolling in the grass! His zest for life is obvious in his spontaneous backflop wiggles, goofiness over squeaky toys and that constantly beaming smile. Ben has lots of fun jumping in and out of the play yard sandbox, and he's been learning about the magic of dipping his paws in the kiddie pool. He's very well-behaved in the car and loves the breeze on those big ears. He also goes on lots of field trips with his volunteer friends to show off his good behavior and get time out of the shelter. Ben is a pup that knows how to have fun, but he also loves working and learning - his obedience skills are top-notch and he's learning all kinds of new things in APA!'s Total Obedience Program. The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, Ben has a personalized training plan and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help him learn the skills to become the best dog he can be! Ben is learning skills like sit and down, walking nicely on leash, sitting calmly when approached by strangers or other dogs, staying in a sit or down until told "free," coming when called and "place", which means he will go to a specific place in your home on command. Once Ben successfully completes all the skills on his training plan, he will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Ben is working hard to become a wonderful companion, and as a part of APA's Total Obedience Program you can work with APA staff to continue to build a training relationship with him after adoption and master all the TOP dog skills together. Check out a video on APA's CGC program, on which the TOP was based: vimeo/89434193 Follow Ben Hoku on Instagram! adopt_benhoku

    Sally

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier. This calm and loyal lady has been described as "cat-like" by her foster mom in that she's very independent and is content to do her own thing. Sally always stays close to her person when out and about, and if another person comes up to them, she will sit and look to her person for reassurance. Sally is calm around other dogs and people, but isn't particularly interested in interacting with them. While she can be shy when meeting new people, after some time to warm up, she'll allows pets and gently accept treats. But once she knows you, Sally becomes a very loving and loyal companion. She shares her toys with her foster mom and likes to curl up on the couch next to her. Sally really adores her soft stuffed animals, which she does not and will not destroy. She likes to carry them around gently in her mouth and will bring them all up from downstairs so she has them in one place. Sally enjoys a little fetch from time to time, but with a ball, thank you, not her babies. Sally is great on walks (unless she sees a squirrel that's up to no good) and she seems to accommodate whatever speed the human holding the leash is walking at. She has a low to medium energy level and is good with a 20 to 40 minute walk. She'd also probably enjoy a secure backyard that had squirrel visitors for her to stalk. Sally does well left alone, is house and crate-trained and doesn't bark much in the house. She also has cute little ears, pretty brown eyes and comes in a nice, manageable size. If you're looking for a quiet, calm companion, you won't find a better match than Sally. Come meet her!

    Osito

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Chihuahua
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Terrier. Imagine watching Cirque du Soleil in your very own home, anytime you want. Bright and talented Osito will keep you entertained and laughing. Who wouldn't want a best friend who is always ready to make you smile? While Osito may not fold all the laundry for you (he has his limits) he may bring you that sock you dropped in the other room - for a treat, of course. There might be no end to his ability to learn new things, but be careful as he may just have you doing his bidding. Osito will bond closely with anyone who appreciates his intelligence and understands that while he may look tough on the outside he's really just a bit nervous of the outside world and needs some guidance. This sharp-looking youngster takes some time to warm up to new people, but once he does, he bonds closely with them, and despite his tiny stature, he will make sure no harm befalls them. Osito is a moderately active guy and mostly likes to keep watch on whatever's going on and is really good at keeping himself entertained. Chew toys are his favorite, and he also enjoys puzzle toys to keep that big brain occupied. He really likes to hear he is a good boy and will sit at attention just to hear the praise! And he also has plenty to say himself - this little curmudgeon has opinions and he wants you to hear them, grumbling about this and that as he makes sure he's getting his point across. What he definitely won't complain about is nice soft beds. Those he likes a lot. Smart, independent, talkative and so very loyal, Osito is going to make a special someone very happy. If you think you're up for an adventure, come say hello to your little knight in shiny black armor!

    Brother Bear...

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Mutt
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. From his favorite spot on the sofa, Brother Bear's chocolate brown eyes follow his foster mom around the room while she gets ready for work. If one of the resident dogs passes close by, he'll lean forward for a touching of noses, but mostly he likes to sit and observe. When his foster mom is ignoring him at the computer, that's when he really comes out of his shell and tries to get her attention with a nose poke, play bow or a soft "woo woo. Brother Bear loves his foster doggie brothers who are teaching him that people are ok and other important dog lessons - like how to play with toys, how to be brave on walks and that squirrels aren't to be trusted. He's a quiet pup to have around, and while he can take some time to warm up to new people, he becomes quite snuggly once he's made their acquaintance. Brother Bear is looking for nice chill household with at least one other doggie sibling who can help show him the ropes. Once he feels at home, he's sure to provide his new family with silly dances, big smiles, soft kisses and goofball antics. Come meet this sweet pup!

    Sissy

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Mutt
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. Is your dog bored and lonely and in need of a doggie playmate? Do you have a bunch of dog toys lying around that are going unused and unloved? Do you need more corgi-shaped laughter in your life? Then Sissy might be the dog for you! Sissy loves dogs of all sizes and shapes, but she hasn't had a lot of exposure to these weird creatures called "humans," and she finds them a bit scary. But like the smart girl scientist she is, she is determined to figure out what these humans are all about. She finds people fascinating and she's always watching and taking mental notes. And she likes to conduct experiments: can she walk close to you without you trying to grab or pet her? If so, plus 10 points for you! Do you have dog toys? Plus 5 points! Are you generous with the treats? plus 50 points! Even though she's not sure about petting and grabby hands, Sissy wants to get in on whatever the other dogs are doing. If a dog seems to like something, then she wants to try it, too. On a recent sleepover, Sissy got up the courage to sneak in a kiss on the human's hand while they were petting another dog. She watches other dogs to learn how to interact with humans, so she needs a home that already has at least one dog-friendly dog living there who can be a role model for her and show her the ropes. She would love it if that dog liked to play as much as she does, and if the dog likes to cuddle, too, well, that would be perfection! With a doggie friend or two, along with her intelligence, curiosity and strong desire to be social, Sissy will be on her way to making new friends and learning to navigate the world. And to help do her part, Sissy is already crate-trained (she loves her crate) and also appears to be house-trained. When Sissy finds the right human who will take her out of the shelter and give her a safe and loving home, we're sure she'll become the most loyal and grateful dog ever. Come meet this brave little pup!

    Breed: Mutt
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Spaniel / Mixed. Snuggler alert! Brenda is a super snuggler and is literally the sweetest, most gentle pup ever. She loves to lay near you and be petted and will even insert herself between your ankles and turn over to look at you. If you stop petting her too quickly, she'll complain about it! She also loves squeaky toys. Her face is misshapen so her skull is different on both sides and her cute mouth and nose are long and skinny. However, she gets around really well and goes in and out of the house with no problem, and she loves running around the yard with her friends. This sweet girl will make someone very happy. There is no other dog like her!

  • Anyla - Chihuahua Dog For Adoption

    Chihuahua Dog For Adoption in Austin, TX, USA

    Anyla

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: Chihuahua
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Chihuahua. This resilient little survivor has had a rough go of it lately as she was found pregnant with a litter of pups in addition to having two broken legs that didn't heal correctly. Despite everything she's been through, Anyla still wags her tail when she sees her foster mom, reminding her that there are always things in life to look forward to and enjoy. Now that her pups are off to their forever homes, Anyla is looking for one of her own where she can continue to mend. And not a moment will go by where she won't express her gratitude for having you. Anyla is extremely cuddly and has been described as a "lap torpedo" because her mission in life is to go straight to your lap and stay there. She also does this adorable thing where she nuzzles her face into you as if she's trying to find a way to be even closer than she is already. On top of being a total sweetheart, Anyla's an incredibly well-behaved young lady and is making excellent progress on her house-training. She's crate-trained and is a very quiet pup to have around, never making a fuss about anything. Her foster mom says she's the easiest pup she's ever cared for. Since Anyla's legs have healed incorrectly, her orthopedist has recommended her for surgery. In the meantime, she still loves to run around the house on her two good legs (her front right and back left ones), and while she can't put any weight on her back right leg, she can walk short distances with the assistance of her front left leg. It's truly amazing how mobile she is despite her injuries. Though she's unable to play too much and tires pretty quickly, she still enjoys her plushy toys and chewing on rawhides. An ideal home for Anyla would have people who love cuddling for long periods of time while Anyla heals from her upcoming surgeries. If you think you can handle all that, come meet this amazing pup!

    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed. Sarah is a super-sweet and ultra-smart pup who loves to get out for long walks and hikes and would make a great running partner. She has the most adorable eyes and is just the right size - not too big, not too small. She loves to play tug of war, chase, or running around with squeaky toys, but she'll also chill and chew on her bones or rawhides. She's a pretty tolerant pup and is good about being bathed and having her nails done. Sarah is friendly when meeting new women, and while she can be shy with new men, she warms up once she realizes they're okay. Eager to please, Sarah's a quick learner and already knows sit, stay, down, shake and "turn around" and is learning even more skills in APA!'s Total Obedience Program. The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, Sarah has a personalized training plan and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help her learn the skills to become the best dog she can be!

In return, you won't find a more loyal, affectionate companion. Come meet her!
