Veronica

Veronica

Veronica is one of those puppies who seems wise beyond her young age. She loves people, she loves other dogs, she’s quiet in her crate and she has the best inquisitive head turn! We don’t have any history on Roni, just that she needed rescue help and we were more than happy to take her! She’s most likely a Boxer mix, but we really don’t know what else is floating around in her DNA. Best guess is that she’ll be around 50 lbs full grown, but that is truly an estimate. Roni is an absolute joy to be around but we always like to remind people that even though puppies are adorable, they require time, patience, and a lifelong commitment. It is essential to continue training, socialization, physical exercise and mental stimulation as well. Roni is available for adoption in the Columbus area only due to needing vaccine boosters and spay surgery (when she’s old enough) which will be done by one of our local veterinarians. If you would like to make this beautiful brindle girl a member of your family, please fill out an online application.

Maus

Maus

Maus is the tiny one of her litter. Her mom is a Schnauzer and her dad is a mystery! Even though she is small, she is mighty! We estimate that the litter was born the first week of September and that they will be small dogs when fully grown. Maus is in a foster home where she’s learning new things, playing, eating sleeping, and repeating! Even though she is outrageously adorable, she is a puppy and puppies are work. It’s important to remember when bringing in a new family member that this is a long term commitment. It requires patience, time, training, money, and the occasional loss of a shoe. Please consider all the responsibilities that goes into adopting any pet before bringing them home. If you’re ready though and think Maus is the one, please fill out an online application. Because of her age, we will ONLY be accepting Columbus area applications so that she can continue with her shot series and her spay with our local veterinarian.

Britta

Britta

Britta is possibly one of the cutest puppies, ever. Her mom is a Schnauzer and her dad is a mystery! Whatever the combo is, it’s really cute and pretty darn sweet. We estimate that the litter was born the first week of September and that they will be small dogs when fully grown. Britta is in foster care where she is holding her own with her canine foster brother and doing all the things that puppies do. Even though she is outrageously adorable, she is a puppy and puppies are work. It’s important to remember when bringing in a new family member that this is a long term commitment, it requires patience, time, training, money, and the occasional loss of a shoe. Please consider all the responsibilities that goes into adopting any pet before bringing them home. If you’re ready though and think Britta is the one, please fill out an online application.

Vito

Vito

Vito arrived from a rural Kentucky kill shelter and we’re happy he’s here. He’s enjoying being clean, well fed, and having a blanket to curl up in. He’s a lively little guy and very sweet. Chihuahuas in general tend to bond very closely with their person and become very attached. He has not been tested with children but typically Chi’s are not recommended for a family with small kids. Vito would do well in a home where he gets lots of love and affection and gets to explore the outdoors with daily outings. If you would like to meet this handsome boy, please fill out an online application.

Elvis

ADOPT recently received an update on Elvis from his new family! We love seeing how happy he is in his furever home, and hope you enjoy it, too! 🙂

It’s been a little over a month since I adopted Elvis, so I wanted to send an update/major THANK YOU for caring for this sweet boy and all the other pups in ADOPT’s care.

Elvis is quite literally the perfect dog. He’s affectionate, will do ANYTHING for a belly rub,
walks well on a leash, and is friendly with everyone (human/canine/etc.) that he meets. He loves to go on walks around my neighborhood, join me at work, travel home to Cleveland to visit my family (and his dog-Uncle Tucker – pictured below), and play with his friends at doggie daycare. His favorite toys have squeakers in them, his favorite treats are mini-Milkbones, and he LOVES cheese. He is really just a great dog who has made my life/the move to an entirely new city infinitely better, and I wanted to say thank you for being there for him until I could bring him home.

Attached are some photos (including his reaction to getting adopted and heading to his furever home) of Elvis, in case you were wondering what he’s been getting up to these days.

Thank you again for all you do!

Ava

Ava

This little spark plug has both beauty and brains! Ava is (most likely) a blend of Corgi, Australian Shepherd, and maybe a splash of Lab! She’s the perfect size and has a thick, soft, beautiful coat. Ava has one bright blue eye and one eye that is half blue and half brown. Her personality seems to be dominantly Corgi…she loves her person or people and is very motivated to please. She will follow you around but is also social and likes to meet new people as well. She is energetic, learns very quickly, and will be a great companion for an active home. She is happy to curl up and lounge around, but will also need regular exercise to keep from becoming bored. Ava is part of our canine-inmate program where she is learning her basic commands. She’s an absolute doll! If you would like to meet Ava, please fill out an online application.

Jade

Jade

Jade’s name comes from the gemstone which has historically been used to attract love and promote wisdom, balance and peace. While she is currently “unpolished” she has tremendous beauty that lies beneath. Jade arrived with a terrible case of Demodex mange and was virually hairless. She is being treated, doing wonderfully and is starting to grow her coat. When she first came to us she was desperate to love someone but fearful, army crawling through rooms and being afraid of things that were unfamiliar. She now has shown her resilience and is a happy, affectionate girl gaining confidence every day. Her tail is constantly wagging and she’s happy to be alive. Jade has eyes that truly seem to look directly into your soul and has the kindest disposition. She is being fostered with 2 canine foster brothers and plays well with both. She sleeps quietly in her crate and takes her medicine like a champ! We hope that someone is able to look past her current “nakedness” and see the amazing girl that we know she is…if you do and would like to meet her, please fill out an online application.

Chad

Chad

Sometimes we don’t need to use a lot of words to describe a dog…take Chad for example…just look at him. He’s ridiculously cute. Ridiculously. He arrived with 2 littermates and our best calculation is that they are about 10 weeks old and Hound mixes. Based on age and current weight, we are estimating that they’ll be 60+ pounds as adults (this is an estimate!) Chad is currently in foster care and is described as being a pretty chill little guy. He’s a typical pup and likes to play but isn’t a complete wildman. He is a snuggler, gets along with his canine foster siblings, and is working on crate training and housebreaking. So far so good, he’s had only a couple of accidents! Even though Chad is cute enough to make you drool, remember that puppies are work. They need continued training, socialization, and vet visits to keep them healthy and balanced. Because Chad still needs his boosters and his neuter surgery with our local vet, we will be accepting applications from Columbus, OH or the immediate vicinity only!!
