If you already have a dog, they’re probably on your list of things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. There are plenty of dogs at Orphans of the Storm® who are just waiting for their opportunity to be given a second chance at a new loving home, though–and they would be sure to thank you for that second chance every single day, if you adopt one!
Oscar the four-year-old black Labrador Retriever mix is one cute pooch. He has a short, docked tail that just wiggles all over the place when he’s happy (which is most of the time). He was more than ready to go out and brave the cold weather, and walked pretty well on the leash.
Oscar has a very unique look, so it’s hard to know exactly what he’s mixed with, but whatever it is made for one great dog. Oscar has such a sweet expression on his face all the time, and he seems like he would be very eager to please his new owners. Maybe on Black Friday you can fight against Black Dog Syndrome and welcome a black dog into your family! Oscar would really appreciate it.
Sky the three-year-old Husky mix is a beautiful girl. She has those bright blue Husky eyes that will grab your attention immediately. Although her fur is on the short side, there’s no doubt that she’s happy to run and play even in cold temperatures like we had this weekend. She had a good time exploring the off-leash run and is probably wondering where the snow is!
Sky is currently sharing her kennel with Frankie (poor Frankie–all of his kennelmates keep getting adopted, and he keeps getting overlooked), so she could go to a home with or without another dog. Huskies are, in general, active dogs who were bred to work, so Sky is looking for a new family that will be able to keep her busy. She’s a friendly girl who would make a great companion. Come in soon to meet Sky!
Cybor the four-year-old Pit Bull Terrier mix hasn’t been at the shelter for very long, but she’s quickly become a staff and volunteer favorite. She knows her basic commands and is very affectionate, and on top of that she also has an adorable face that everybody loves, and perky ears that I absolutely love.
Cybor (who is listed as Sadie on the website) got lots of attention while we were on our walk. Everyone we passed said, “Look at that face!” Since Cybor always looks like she’s smiling, you can’t help but smile back at her. Although Cybor is pretty much all muscle, she was pretty good at walking on the leash and has a constantly wagging tail. This sweetie will bring lots of joy to whichever lucky family brings her home this holiday season!
Roxy the one-year-old Shepherd mix is super cute, super energetic, and still very much a puppy. I don’t think Miniature German Shepherds are actually a thing, but that’s basically what Roxy is–a German Shepherd that you can pick up and hold in your lap. You’ll have to get Roxy to stay still long enough to do that, though! She was running laps around the off-leash run and played a racing game with the dog on the other side of the fence.
Roxy is currently sharing her kennel with Benny (who is a super-sweet senior), so she could go to a home with or without another dog. Roxy likes to give doggy hugs, and even gave me a couple of doggy kisses while she was at it. Roxy enjoyed chasing after the tennis ball and was good about bringing it back to me. If you’re looking for a playful puppy who will stay puppy-sized, come in soon to meet Roxy!
I also spent some time with my buddies Dennis, Lucky, Akiva, Rock, Molly, Jade, and Hugo. If you bring a new dog into your home this holiday season, you’ll both be “furever” thankful!
