Valentine’s Day is just a few days away! What better way to celebrate than by welcoming a lovable new furry friend into your home? The dogs (and cats) at Orphans of the Storm® have so much love to offer, and would be so happy to receive your love in return!

Chiquito the two-year-old Parson Russell Terrier mix was very eager to come outside with me. He may have little legs, but don’t let that fool you–Chiquito is a fast guy! He was happy to take the lead as we made our way around the walking trail. As long as you’re a fast walker too, though, Chiquito doesn’t really pull on the leash. Chiquito is super cute, with ears that perk straight up when he’s interested in something and a curly tail that he holds high in the air.

Chiquito loves going for walks

Chiquito sort of did his own thing while we were on our walk around the trail, but when we went to the off-leash run afterwards that’s when he showed his snuggly side. It was a little chilly, so I scooped Chiquito into my arms to give him some extra warmth and he was happy to be held. Chiquito’s breed is an active one, so Chiquito would prefer to go to a home that will keep him busy. Stop by soon to see if Chiquito is the pooch for you!

Marley the two-year-old Labrador Retriever/Mastiff mix is a big boy with a big heart. I was a little nervous that he would pull me over once I put his leash on, but in fact he walks nicely on the leash. Marley loves pretty much everybody. We passed several people on our way to the off-leash run and Marley greeted all of them with so much of a wagging tail that his entire body was wriggling with happiness. There is no way you can meet Marley and not have a smile on your face.

Marley’s big, lovable face

Marley is super affectionate. He loves to give people doggy hugs and, since he’s so tall on his hind legs, he can easily give you doggy kisses at the same time because his big face is right there next to yours! Marley is also a playful pooch. He had a fun time racing the dog in the run next to ours, and enjoyed chasing and chewing on a tennis ball. He hasn’t been at the shelter for long, but he’s already a volunteer favorite. If you’re looking for a big lovebug, come in soon to meet Marley!

Shyanne/Cheyenne the six-year-old Hound mix is a pretty girl with lots of love to offer. She was ready to come outside for a walk and pulled on the leash a bit at first because she was so excited, but by the end of our visit together she had settled into a nice walking companion. Shyanne/Cheyenne has those lovey-dovey Hound eyes that will make sure you take a second look at her.

Shyanne/Cheyenne the sweetie

Shyanne/Cheyenne is a real sweetheart with people. Shortly after we got to the off-leash run, she came walking over to where I was kneeling and rested her chin in my lap so I could pet her. Although Shyanne/Cheyenne attends play group and is getting better with being around other dogs, she would still prefer to be the only dog in her new home. But with a dog as sweet as Shyanne/Cheyenne, one is all you need! Come in soon to see if Shyanne/Cheyenne is the dog for you.

Shadow the one-year-old Labrador Retriever mix is definitely still in her puppy phase, which makes her so much fun to be around! She believes everything is a toy, including the leash, jacket sleeves, and boots (even while they’re still on a person’s foot)–but she’s happy to be distracted by an actual toy, like a tennis ball. Shadow will need some training, but that’s true for any young pup. And since Shadow is so playful, she’ll think the training is just another type of game!

Shadow’s ready to snuggle

Shadow is a cuddly girl. She tried to jump up on the bench next to me but isn’t quite coordinated enough yet, so I moved down to the ground and she gave me doggy kisses. Shadow does the cute puppy-type thing where she’ll run and run and run and then suddenly plop down because she tired herself out so fast. Don’t let her initial puppy craziness turn you off right away–she’s just happy and excited and wants to play! Stop by soon and say hello to Shadow.

Boomer the five-year-old Terrier mix convinced me to take him out because he was quietly sitting and wagging his tail at me when all of the other dogs around him were barking and jumping. I thought good manners should be rewarded, so I brought him out for a walk! Boomer continued to show that he has good manners by walking nicely on the leash as we made our way to the run.

Boomer has a cute face

Boomer has a very unique look. I’m not sure if it’s the result of a bad haircut or it’s just his natural look, but he has a “mane” of much longer fur around his shoulders, while the fur on the rest of his body is short. Either way, it’s both cute and funny. Boomer also has a very sweet face. He was a little shy at first, and was more interested in sniffing the dog in the run next to ours, but eventually he came over to me and enjoyed a good scratch on the back. Poor Boomer was not eager to go back to his kennel at the end of our visit, and I wasn’t eager to put him back either! Be sure to say hi to Boomer on your next visit to the shelter.
