Sweet Shadow is a favorite at AAC! She came to us as a stray in mid-May, and quickly wiggled her way into the hearts of every staffer and volunteer she met. Shadow has playful energy and she loves to swim! At the shelter she can often be found dunking herself underwater in the play yard pools, so she would probably LOVE a trip to the lake or your backyard oasis! She also loves to run around to get her zoomies out, then get some belly rubs once she’s done. Shadow has strong opinions about other dogs, so we’ll insist she meet any resident dogs before being adopted to make sure she’ll be happiest in her new home. At just 55 pounds, Shadow is the perfect size for any home. She appears to be housetrained, but like every other dog, may need some reminders and patience in a new space. I weigh approximately 55 lbs. Click here to view my behavior notes from staff and volunteers.

Meet Annie! She is a young, energetic pup who loves being around people... her favorite thing is getting some snuggles and pets! Annie loves going on outings to the park... she has SO much fun sniffing` all the things and meeting all the people! Her shelter BFF has also taken her to eat pizza (YUM!!) as well as to an agility class (gotta burn off those pizza-eating calories!). Annie adapts easily to each new situation and always has a smile on her face. She is 100% an adventure buddy! Annie has potential to live with another confident dog once she’s had plenty of time to decompress from the stress of the shelter. She really needs someone who is patient and willing to go slowly with her. Luckily Annie comes with lots of support from the Orange Dot Crew (a volunteer advocacy group) and free training thanks to Friends of AAC. An ideal home for Annie will be with someone who wants to take her on walks to work her little body and then provide her with enrichment items and puzzle toys to work her little mind! She would likely be too much doggo for young kids but teenagers who want to help with her training would be great! Annie would also do best in a house with a yard. Annie is growing up in the shelter and we won’t sugarcoat it… it’s tough on her. She deserves a real home… she deserves a family.
