If you’re looking for an affectionate new companion, now is the perfect time to come into Orphans of the Storm® and meet some of the dogs who will be more than happy to cover you in doggy kisses.

Batman the five-year-old Border Collie/Labrador Retriever mix has been at the shelter for several months, but now has his clean bill of health and is ready to be adopted! Batman loves going for walks and spending time outside, even when it’s chilly. We quickly made our way to the off-leash run, where Batman enjoyed exploring in the bushes and being able to romp freely.

How can you say no to a face like Batman’s?

Batman was more cuddly once he was back on the leash and less distracted. When I knelt down next to him, he came over to lean against my legs and get a good scratch on the back. His fluffiness makes him an ideal snuggle buddy! Batman isn’t a fan of other dogs, so he would like to be the only dog in his new home. If you’re a one-dog kind of person, come in soon to say hello to Batman!

Batman had a big smile on his face

Nuk the nine-year-old Basset Hound mix is super adorable and lovable. (I admit I have a personal bias towards Basset mixes, but for good reason!) Nuk walks nicely on the leash, which is good because he could use some extra exercise with his new family to shed a couple extra pounds around his middle. Nuk, like most Hounds, spent a lot of his time with his nose to the ground, seeing what might be hiding underneath the snow.

Nuk is just too precious

Nuk is an affectionate boy. When I sat down on the bench, he soon came to join me (he may have stubby legs, but he can still jump!) and gave me plenty of doggy kisses. We sat together on the bench for a while, just enjoying each other’s company. Those sweet brown eyes of his will capture your heart immediately. Be sure to say hi to Nuk on your next visit to the shelter.

Nuk liked being up high on the bench

Ginger the ten-year-old Labrador Retriever mix (not to be confused with the other Ginger, who is also affectionate!) may be considered a senior, but she still has plenty of pep in her step. When I came to take her out, she was jumping up and down excitedly at the opportunity to go outside. Once she was out of her kennel, though, she calmed down quickly and was a nice walking companion.

Ginger was shining in the sunlight

Ginger did some exploring on her own when we first got to the off-leash run, but after that she was stuck to my side like glue. She hopped up next to me on the bench and gave me doggy kisses every so often while I pet her. Sometimes she would sit next to me, sometimes she would squeeze behind me and lean against my back, and sometimes she put her front paws in my lap to get extra close. What a lovebug! Stop in soon to meet Ginger.
