It was a rainy day at Orphans of the Storm®, but the dogs were still happy to come outside (well, some were happier than others). Their pictures are a bit ethereal this week due to all the raindrops on the camera lens, but that just means I’ll have to walk them again and get better pictures when the weather is nicer!

River the one-year-old Shepherd mix was one of the dogs who didn’t mind the rain at all. He was eager to come outside and wasn’t in a hurry to get back to his kennel at the end. River seems like a pretty athletic dog who would like to go for walks or runs, and since he’s still young he would of course like to have plenty of playtime!

River has super cute ears

River was originally sharing his kennel with another dog who has since been adopted, so we know he gets along with his fellow pooches. River is a sweet boy who will happily give you doggy kisses once he gets to know you. He mostly explored the off-leash run on his own, but he would come to me every once in a while for a pat on the back or a scratch under the chin. He’s a bit on the skinny side, so his new family can spoil him with plenty of treats! Stop by soon to meet River.

Wishbone the two-year-old Shepherd mix caught my eye as I was walking through her wing because she is so pretty and fluffy! She was a little hesitant about the rain but once her leash was on, she was ready to go! Wishbone can pull a bit when she first gets out of her kennel, but she settles down into a good walking companion.

Wishbone’s pretty (blurry) face

Wishbone was a little skittish at first and mostly kept to herself for the first few minutes we were in the off-leash run, but eventually she realized that we could get along just fine and so she stood by my side while I pet her. You may or may not agree with the pro-Obama message on her collar, but don’t let that influence your decision 🙂 On your next visit to the shelter, take some time to get to know Wishbone!

Tyson the ten-month-old American Staffordshire Terrier mix is a big boy, and since he’s still a puppy he might even get a little bit bigger. But along with that big size comes a big heart–Tyson is super sweet and funny. He has a lot of energy and can be a bit of a handful when he first gets out of his kennel, but after he gets the chance to run around a bit he calms down considerably. Don’t get turned off right away with him!

Tyson has a big, lovable face

Tyson has some cute puppy tendencies still. He’s still learning about the world and has plenty of curiosity. He was sniffing a plastic cover that was hanging from the fence and when it moved he jumped away, but then immediately went back and poked it with his nose again. Tyson gives big doggy hugs and is so cute. If you’re looking for a big, lovable companion and you have the time to put into training, come in soon to meet Tyson!

Tyson is up for anything!

Festus the four-year-old Hound mix has been at the shelter for a little while now. He’s always been sharing his kennel with other dogs who get adopted, and now Festus is ready for his turn! We know Festus is a friendly guy, so he could go to a home with or without another pooch.

Festus is an outdoorsman

Festus is well-behaved. He waited patiently while I put his leash on and didn’t try to dash out. He also walked pretty nicely on the way to the off-leash run. Being a Hound, Festus was more interested in following his nose than anything else. He’s a cute boy with nice coloring and markings. Stop by soon to see if Festus is the pooch for you!
