Snow may finally be on the way today, but it was raining during my last visit with the dogs at Orphans of the Storm®. Rain or shine, though, these pooches are happy to go for a walk and get some love and attention.

Flossy the one-year-old Great Dane mix is a very sweet girl. She’s going to be a big girl, too, once she gains a little more weight and finishes growing. She’s currently sharing her kennel with Bandit and would happily walk next to him while we were out and about, so she could do well in a home with a doggy friend.

Flossy is the type of dog who will stop in her tracks if you start petting her. She’s so happy to get attention that she won’t start walking again until you stop petting her. Everyone who saw her at the shelter kept saying how cute she is. If you’re looking for a big, sweet puppy, come in soon to meet Flossy!

Dagda (who has the name ‘Bage’ outside his kennel, if you go looking for him at the shelter) the four-year-old Chocolate Labrador Retriever mix has all of the best Lab qualities. He loves everybody and wags his rudder-like tail all the time. Although his kennelmate (who has already been adopted–hurray!) was a little reluctant to go out in the rain, Dagda was leading the way and loved to explore.

Dagda’s handsome profile

Dagda loves to cuddle and give doggy kisses. If your face gets within licking range, you can be sure that Dagda will kiss you. He will happily receive a nice scratch behind the ears or under his chin in return. He also knows some basic commands already. As soon as a treat appears, Dagda sits. What is a dog like him doing at a shelter? You can change that by welcoming this wonderful companion into your home.

Honey Lamb the two-year-old Pit Bull Terrier mix doesn’t understand why she’s still at the shelter, either. She has been waiting patiently for a family to call her own for over a year now. Honey Lamb is sure to bond quickly and make a loyal pet for whoever shows her some love. She’s a strong girl, and she pulls a little on the leash when you first take her out, but she settles down nicely.

Honey Lamb would probably prefer a more active home, after being in a kennel for so long. She loves to run, sniff, and investigate, but will always come back to you for a nice back rub or scratch on the top of her head. If you’re interested in an athletic dog, please consider a long-timer like Honey Lamb.

Honey Lamb enjoying our walk

Bear the two-year-old Yellow Labrador Retriever mix could really use some extra love right now. He’s a little nervous and doesn’t quite know who to trust yet. Luckily, he warms up very quickly. He started our walk with his tail between his legs and his head down close to the ground. As soon as I gave him a few gentle pats on the back, though, he sat right on my feet (yes, on my feet), looked up at me with those sweet eyes, and kissed my nose.

Bear’s sweet face

Bear is an extremely gentle dog, so he would appreciate living with a gentle person who will be patient with him as he comes out of his shell. He walks very well on a leash and would enjoy bonding with his new person during nice walks. Each time I started to pet him, he sat down as close to me as he possibly could. By the end of our walk, his tail was starting to wag. Come in soon to meet Bear!

Tessa the two-year-old Shepherd/Collie mix, who is currently Bear’s kennelmate, was also a little nervous when we first started our walk. She’s a sweet, playful girl at heart, though, who eventually gave me lots of doggy hugs and doggy kisses. She loves attention, and it’s impossible to deny her when she has her front paws up on your legs and is smiling at you with her tongue hanging out the side of her mouth.

Tessa’s alert face

Tessa is a very pretty girl, with her cute brown spots. When she’s extra happy or excited, her ears perk up. As a Shepherd/Collie mix, she will be great at learning any new tricks you want to teach her. Mostly, though, she’ll just be grateful to have a warm lap to snuggle in. This sweetheart is waiting for the perfect family to come take her home.
