Orphans of the Storm® will be closed on Monday for Labor Day, but open the regular 11am-5pm hours on Saturday and Sunday. Enjoy the long weekend by welcoming a new dog into your home!

Chevy the seven-year-old Terrier mix is all about the cuddles. As soon as you kneel down to his level, he comes right over and plops down next to you. He also has no problem being picked up and actually seems to enjoy being carried more than he enjoys walking on the leash (though for exercise purposes, he should still walk more than he’s carried). Chevy is a little shy and nervous, so being close to a person is comforting for him.

Orphans of the Storm Dogs: Chevy Terrier 1

Chevy is a little cutiepie

Chevy did a little bit of sniffing while we were out but could use some more encouragement when it comes to walking on the leash. Chevy was sharing his kennel with another dog who has since been adopted, so he could go to a home with or without another dog. If you’re looking for a sweet little cuddle-bug, come in soon to meet Chevy!

Chevy says, “I have walked far enough.”

Maggie Mae the two-year-old Labrador Retriever mix is one of the most affectionate dogs at the shelter right now. She greets every person as if they were her long-lost best friend. Maggie Mae gives the most human-like doggy hugs I have ever experienced. She literally wraps her front paws around your waist and will stand like that as long as you let her. She will also cover your face in doggy kisses whenever she’s given the opportunity, and will try to climb into your lap when you sit down.

Maggie Mae is always ready for a cuddle and a kiss

Maggie Mae is active and playful. She can pull a bit on the leash when she first comes out of her kennel, and prefers to walk at a quick pace. She would love a yard to call her own and have plenty of squeaky toys to play with. While Maggie Mae loves people more than anything, she is not a fan of other dogs and would like to be the only dog in her new home. Be sure to say hello to Maggie Mae on your next visit to the shelter!

Maggie Mae is a smiley pooch

Cooper the eight-year-old Border Collie mix excitedly jumped up and down when he realized it was his turn to come out, but then stayed perfectly still when it was actually time to put his leash on. Cooper is a sweet boy who gave me a doggy hug as soon as he came out of his kennel, and gave me several other doggy hugs during the rest of our outing.

Cooper is a good-looking guy

Cooper may be bordering on “senior,” but he doesn’t act like it. He zipped around the Enrichment Park, went a few steps up the A-frame before hopping off, and splashed around the puppy pool. Cooper walks pretty well on the leash, though he does like to weave back and forth to pick up more scents. He isn’t too fond of other dogs, so Cooper would do best as the only dog in his new home. If you’re looking for a smart dog to do all sorts of activities with, come in soon to meet Cooper!

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Cooper flying through the Enrichment Park!

I also saw Big Boy and Mojo, Dunkin (who gave me a doggy hug as a hello), Harley, Jasmine, Monte, Nash, Thunder, and Whizzer.

  7. […] Chevy the seven-year-old Terrier mix. Chevy is the smallest dog on this list, and he makes for a great lapdog! Chevy likes to cuddle and be held. He’s a little shy and nervous, so he’s looking for someone who can give him extra TLC and make sure he’s loved. Chevy was sharing his kennel with another dog when he first arrived at the shelter, and he has also participated in small-dog play groups. He doesn’t play much, but he doesn’t mind being around other dogs. […]

  9. […] I usually end the year with a post about long-timers (dogs who have been at the shelter for one year or longer), but 2019 was such an amazing year for Orphans that there are only FIVE long-timers left! (For reference, there were 20+ long-timers in August when I highlighted some for Clear the Shelters.) Let’s make 2020 the year of no long-timers by finding the perfect homes for Barney, Batman (Wombat), Big Boy, Brutus, and Chevy. […]
