There are so many sweet dogs at Orphans of the Storm® right now (and always!). Come by for a visit and find out how happy a new forever friend could make you.
Gracie the seven-year-old Labrador Retriever/Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix is a sweet girl. She led the way to the woodland preserve and then settled into being a good walking companion. Gracie only pulled on the leash a couple of times when there was a particularly interesting scent she wanted to investigate. The rest of the time, she walked at a nice pace just a few steps ahead of me.
Gracie likes to give doggy kisses, especially after she’s had the chance to get to know you. Gracie also had no problem pausing a few times during our walk so she could get pet. When we were in the off-leash run, Gracie did some exploring on her own but always came back to get a pat on the back. Stop in soon to meet Gracie!
Luke the eleven-month-old Catahoula Leopard Dog mix is a happy boy who will be even happier once he has a home to call his own. Luke isn’t shy at all, and will cover your face in doggy kisses. He’s also happy to hop up and join you on the bench for a snuggle session. This puppy will take all the attention he can get!
Luke is pretty well-behaved for a puppy. He probably hasn’t had much (if any) training, but he walks well on the leash and is content to just go with the flow. Luke gets excited around other dogs but it seems to be more of a friendly exuberance. He has a cute, curly tail and sweet face. Come in soon to see if Luke is the pup for you!
Boss the three-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix might look tough, but he doesn’t act tough! When I first saw this big boy, he was rolling around on his back in the grass and kicking all four paws in the air. Boss sometimes makes a snuffly noise of contentment when you pet him, which is cute.
Boss enjoyed his walk around the woodland preserve. He made his way through the tall grasses and did some more snuffling. He can get bark-y around some dogs, but other dogs he doesn’t give a second glance. Boss would do best as the only pet in his new home (he’s not a fan of cats in particular). If you have a one-pet kind of home, come in soon to meet Boss!
Sydney (also known as Melody) the eight-year-old German Shepherd mix ended up at the shelter because her original family became homeless and could no longer care for her. But this means that she has a lifetime of experience being a family dog, and we know that she gets along with children. Sydney is very sweet and will give you some doggy kisses while you pet her.
Sydney is a gorgeous dog. More than one customer stopped me to ask more about Sydney while we were out on our walk. She walks great on the leash but also didn’t mind stopping every once in a while so I could pet her. Sydney can get a little bark-y around other dogs, but it was easy enough to redirect her and keep walking. Be sure to say hello to Sydney on your next visit to the shelter!
Buddy the three-year-old Hound/Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix is a fun boy. The first thing he did when he came out of his kennel was give me a big doggy hug. He gave me a few more during the rest of the time we were out together. Buddy has some energy when he first comes out, but he settled down soon after.
Buddy likes to chase after toys, but could use some extra practice on bringing them back to the person who threw them. Buddy’s tail was wagging pretty much the entire time we were together. He did some exploring in the off-leash run, but mostly stayed close to me so I could keep petting him. Buddy is ready to find his own buddy, so come in soon to meet him!
