There are lots of sweet and snuggly dogs ready to meet you at Orphans of the Storm®! Here are just a couple.
Sonny the one-and-a-half-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier/Labrador Retriever mix can be a little bark-y and jump-y in his kennel, but he melts into a puddle of sweetness as soon as he gets his leash put on. He gave me a doggy hug and doggy kisses right away, and wasn’t even that interested in walking! He just wanted to climb into my lap and get pet. One kiss is definitely never enough for Sonny!
Sonny is a nice walking companion. In fact, he wants to be so close to his person that sometimes he was walking between my legs rather than to my side. Sonny enjoys rolling around on his back in the grass but will also lay still for you to give him belly rubs. Sonny needs a little more practice learning how to be a dog, because he seemed a little nervous when I started tossing toys for him to chase and didn’t know what to do with them. But this young pup is eager to learn. Be sure to say hello to Sonny on your next visit to the shelter!
Harper the two-year-old Australian Cattle Dog/Labrador Retriever mix likes people of all ages, including children. She’s already gone to Orphans of the Storm®’s Northbrook Court location and loved getting attention and pets from everyone who stopped in. Harper loves water and enjoys stretching out in the puppy pool. She also liked splashing in puddles from the recent rain when we were on our walk. Maybe her future home will include a pool or a lake!
Harper is well-mannered. She sat nicely for me without even being asked, and is a good walking companion. She likes to give doggy hugs and the occasional doggy kiss. Harper gets along with other dogs and has become a play group regular. Sometimes she just enjoys sniffing on her own, and sometimes she likes to tumble around with the others. Come in soon to meet Harper!
There were also a few dogs who haven’t made it on the website yet (it’s still under construction but will be updated soon!) like Henry, Magic, PB&J, Rose, and Tiny.
