Adoptable Dogs

Scroll through our adoptable dogs here, or visit our dogs on petfinder.com!

Keep in mind that ALL of our dogs are in foster homes, NOT at a shelter.

If you would like to meet a dog you have seen here, please complete a dog adoption application. Once we’ve reviewed it and it seems like a good match, we will set up a meeting for you.
If you are looking for a dog but DO NOT see a specific dog you like, fill out the application anyway, with Non-specific dog selected and we will work with you to find you the best doggo!

Chakir means the chosen one and this boy really lucked out because at 1mo of age, someone broke all of his legs:( He's healed nicely and is a big dream in a small package. He'll probably top out at 35lbs but for now he still has that slender puppy look. 8m and oh so sweet with other dogs and most likely fine w/ kitties. Should always play gently, especially while still growing so no big pouncy dogs for him. Please apply if you are his new family.

5y Dev is the epitome of a sweet, affectionate with cats/dogs and adults (kids unknown as of now), good 3 legged doggie ! He was found roaming near the fire station with his amputated foot which was infected so badly that gangrene set in and he had to have the rest of his back leg amputated.

Someone witnessed a car following two dogs that ran over them intentionally! Sultana, a 2y Shep/Canaan mix survived this horrific situation but unfortunately her puppy did not. she was in so much pain; her leg was bleeding badly yet she stayed beside the puppy until rescue arrived.

Jesse, in house fondly called Messy Jesse--This guy is the best--great w/ cats, in fact he LOVES them! (lived with them in the shelter) as well as loves people and dogs! He's about a year old, and 60+lbs sopping wet, we think he is finished growing:) Jesse is here from Egypt missing a home in time for Thanksgiving but would definitely enjoy Christmas and New Year's:) Because he is blind, we would like him to go to a home w/ a seeing female dog (Kebe was his best friend back home and she is available too) OR a cat or 2 to welcome him and show him around. A home w/ a backyard so no leash and no stairs to navigate is his preference. He loves his lightly cooked chicken liver mixed in his chicken and rice! Please apply Backstory: he was hit on the head and made blind by a horrid rescue group in Egypt to get more money and when they jumped ship, shut down, turned all their dogs onto the streets to fend for themselves. Luckily a reputable rescue group there stepped in and sent him to us to help. Please donate for his care, he only eats people food and a lot!

1y 30lb Ciara Kindly, our little mystery breed girl, Canaan Shiba mix from Kuwait. Someone brought her to an area to sell her and when he could not, he just dumped her where she was found being chased by a pack of strays. Despite her sad beginnings, she loves other dogs, especially the boys. We are hoping to find her a home with another young male dog to play with nearby, she loves people and would especially love it if her family were around a lot because she is super affectionate. Please apply, she's here waiting for you. From Ciara's Foster Mom: Ciara is a highly intelligent energetic Canaan mix dog. She is alert to her surroundings at ALL times and will bark loudly to let you know. This is a breed trait so she is just doing her job. It is up to you to let her know you are aware and in charge of the situation. I tell her good girl, I am on it then good girl Quiet until she calms down. Prior to coming to us she had very little training in basic commands. She is doing very well with: Quiet- used above or for unnecessary barking Come- from short and medium distances with reward training Sit/Stay- from short distances with treat training. She is fully housetrained, she needs to go out very first thing in the morning. She is crate trained as well and sleeps there at night. Extremely active and needs room to run so a fenced yard is best. She will let you know she is bored by whining and will go for the occasional slipper if left unoccupied. I tell her no gently and exchange it for one of her toys. She doesn’t fully understand the concept of play yet, but is doing very well fetching her snake toy and squeaky ball. She even brings it back to you! She attaches herself quickly and only wants to be with you. Loves belly rubs and chin scratches are the best! Cats, not so much.

Our friends in Egypt saw this 4-month-old pup get hit by a car, I took her to a vet where it was decided she had a minor shoulder dislocation. She was taken back to the parking garage where she was found and put on meds/ vitamins for 1 week to strengthen her muscles so that she would be able to use her shoulder again. When our friends went to give her the meds, someone had chopped off her arm! We don’t know who did this or why. She is currently staying with our friends and will soon have the rest of her arm amputated. She will be able to live a normal life and despite all this, she is a very fun and loving dog, who doesn’t let her disability stop her from enjoying life and getting affection. She needs a furever home with very few stairs, a loving family with time and energy for her to give her love and attention to make up for what she has been through. Please apply today, but due to recent ban on all Egyptian Air flights carrying animals, we are not sure of arrival date at this time.

 . Bruno Brunelli Happy Face .
 . Bruno Brunelli Happy Face .  . Bruno Brunelli Happy Face .  . Bruno Brunelli Happy Face .  . Bruno Brunelli Happy Face .  . Bruno Brunelli Happy Face .
3y 65lb Bruno Brunelli is everything we love about the bully breeds: Very friendly, loose wiggly body and a waggy tail. He allowed counselor to pet him and rub his belly. He knows his commands of sit and stay. He allows all handling As per the client Bruno is house broken and friendly towards strangers. He has never bitten or scratched anyone to his knowledge. Bruno will chew up shoes if they are left out--so don't leave your shoes out as chew toys! Best in a home w/ no small children due to his energy, and because he is a big boy, w/ experienced bully adopters who know enough to be the alpha in the pack:) He can be a bit territorial about his toys and food w/ other dogs so we think his ideal situation is a home w/ a yard and access to other doggies for playtime. He definitely is not a city critter. He loves puppies so we consider him the perfect puppy nanny! A volunteer writes: Bruno is a wiggly, playful, sweet bundle of joy! He pulls a little on leash, seems housebroken, sits for treats, and manages to immediately initiate a romance with any tennis ball he finds! I’m not sure I’ve ever met a dog who entertains himself as well!. He play bows with the ball, waltzes with it, rolls on his back with it, eventually chews it up, and then starts the whole cycle with the next one. Just watching him is enough to put a smile on anyone’s face, but he also loves interacting with people (and, so far, other dogs too!). He seems to be one of those dogs who sees a friend in every stranger (the kind of friend he can give kisses to and get belly rubs from!), but I can only imagine the extra-special-lovin’ he has reserved for his family. 11/08/2016 BEHAVIOR AVERAGE Client came to drop off a dog that he stated was left in his apartment by his roommate. Intact, Owner Surrender Previously lived with: Adults SAFER ASSESSMENT: 11/8/16 Look: 1. Dog’s eyes are averted. His ears are back, his tail is down, and he has a relaxed body posture. Dog allows head to be held loosely in Assessor’s cupped hands. Sensitivity: 1. Dog leans into the Assessor, eyes soft, soft and loose body, open mouth. Tag: 2. Dog is not fearful, but is unresponsive to the Assessor, and approaches the Assessor at the end of the game (need coaxing to approach.) He is focused on stimuli other than the Assessor. Squeeze 1 & 2: 1. Dog does not respond at all for three seconds. His eyes are averted and his ears are relaxed. Toy: 1. No interest. Summary: No concerns were seen on this assessment. DOG-DOG INTERACTION ASSESSMENT: Summary PLAYGROUP: Bruno was surrendered as a stray so his past behavior around dogs is unknown. When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Bruno engages in gentle play with male and female dogs. He is sexually motivated but able to continue to play when solicited. The Behavior Department recommends that Bruno be placed in a home with dogs that match his gentle play style and that a dog-dog interaction be conducted to ensure compatibility. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: 11/04/16 During his initial medical examination, Bruno readily allowed all handling without issue. ENERGY LEVEL: Bruno displays a high activity level in the care center. RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (suitable for an adopter with an average amount of experience) Note: see potential challenges section below Potential challenges: _X_Destructive behavior: Bruno is a young, active, enthusiastic dog with lots of energy. He will need daily mental and physical exercise and stimulation to channel that energy appropriately. He is also reported to chew up shoes if they are left out, so this will need to be managed in his future home. 11/05/2016 GROUP BEHAVIOR EVALUATION When off leash with dogs at the Care Center, Bruno engages in gentle play with male and female dogs. He is sexually motivated but able to continue to play when solicited. The Behavior Department recommends that Bruno be placed in a home with dogs that match his gentle play style and that a dog-dog interaction be conducted to ensure compatibility. 11/5: Bruno displays loose and wiggly body language when greeting a novel female dog. He displays bouncy body language when the female solicits play. He explores the pen for a bit before attempting to mount again. 11/8-11/13: In a group of playful male and female dogs, Bruno displays soft body language when greeting the novel dogs. He is playful, engaging in and soliciting gentle play. He tolerates novice play styles.

This guy loves to be outside so a person w/ a lot of outdoor time and then snuggly time is his Zazu's ideal home. But he is for EXPERIENCED adopters only, preferably 1-2 people in the home and no children. 5y 38lb Zazu fka Zebracake is a good looking gent, reasonably well groomed and dressed in a lush dark chocolate and black coat. His amber eyes light up his face. His muzzle is very slightly grey, and his mouth opens often into a lovely smile. Zazu is a little shy in his kennel, but gets leashed fairly rapidly. He is a very good walker, marks a little his territory, and eyes the pigeons as well as the squirrels in the park. Well, he is just doing his job, as he is part of the herding group of dogs. Zazu does not mind being stared at by me and the camera. He will sit on command, and is not at all interested in my treats that I thought were quite tasty. He seems to like my caresses all over his body. He is a really very gentle and well-mannered pooch. As we were early visitors at a nearby park, we did not meet many dogs, and those we encountered did not elicit much attention from Zazu. He is an easy going character, friendly, a little shy–at least inside our walls–and a lovely Collie/Retriever mix who is sure to attract connoisseurs of the breeds. Facebook: Zani's Furry Friends ZFF (weekly adoption event info posted here) Instagram: zanisfurryfriends Twitter: zanisff Please fill out an application in copy/paste format into the body of the email at http://zanisfurryfriends.org and return to dogs@zanisfurryfriends.org Many of us (cats/dogs) will be on display on Sundays and sometimes on Saturdays--please ask by writing us at dogs@zanisfurryfriends.org and following us on FB. If you are seriously interested in adopting one of us in particular, please fill out an application by Friday so that we can be sure to be there. Otherwise we decide based on other variables. Usually we are in our foster homes or in boarding so this is a bit more stressful and a slightly artificial environment but we do want to be seen and find our furever homes too. Please consider providing a home for more than one dog, especially if you are considering adopting a puppy. Dogs are pack animals and very much enjoy as well as need other dog company to learn to play, socialize and be good companion animals to people. The upside to this is that you won't feel as guilty leaving them alone and you get twice the love. Please come! And if you can't adopt, maybe you can foster or volunteer, and you can always donate!

Spencer is so sad losing his family and home-Victim of Divorce! He is 4y 100lb (from his original 50) and needs to seriously go on a diet, he's built more like a Lab) a regular Heinz 57! We don't know what he is other than sweet! He has been evicted because of his size:( He is a super good boy, soon to be lean again, short haired and super good w/ cats and other dogs, and kids. We need to rehome him quickly so he doesn't have time to be so sad--his dad is heartbroken after being his dad for 3years. Please apply!
