Hi there! I am Lionel, a handsome young Golden Lab mix with a curly tail that never stops wagging! I am being fostered through the Austin Humane Society in Austin, TX. I always have an adorable smile on my face and can’t wait to give everyone I meet love and kisses! I am ready to become a member of a wonderful family and I’m very eager to learn new tricks. I hope you have room for me — I am a pretty big boy, I’d be a great activity partner, too. Come by and meet me, I promise to put a smile on your face!
What could be better than a sweet, silly boy with a curly tail and a “Keep Austin Weird” personality? If that is a hard question to answer, then keep reading! “Lionel is such a lover-man!” He’s got a sweet soul, and he really knows how to put on the charm. Lionel is great at melting into someone’s arms or against the door to his kennel for some affection. It’s hard not to be taken away by him! “The name ‘Lionel’ just fits him because he is so crazy and fun!” He knows how to have a good time! He’s so goofy, and he knows lots of tricks; he can shake and almost roll over! Oh! And it’s impossible to forget how he is really playful and so fun –loving; he’s got great energy! “I love Lionel ‘cause he’s always got a smile on his face!” His coloring is so unique and handsome; he’s somewhere between an ivory and yellow lab coloring. He’s a great package of fun to be with and look at – especially with his forehead that’s a cute amount of wrinkly! Everyone loves his tail! “I’m so glad Lionel is staff pick!” Lionel needs the right active and patient home, so if you are ready for a dog that’s a perfect combination of fun, big, silly, loveable and charming, then Lionel is your guy!
Gibbs, the Scottish Terrier mix, is being fostered through Medical Animals In Need (MAIN) in Phoenix, AZ. Gibbs was struck by a car and left for dead. He is now recovering and is looking for his forever home. Here is his profile (Caution: contains graphic images).
Mercedes is a 5 year old terrier/whippet mix at the Woodford Humane Society in Versailles, KY. She has to be the most patient dog we have ever had, because get this: Mercedes has been waiting for a home since January 21, 2009. Not a typo; her 4 year anniversary with us is coming up in January. We think part of the reason Mercedes gets overlooked is that she is a very athletic (and bouncy) dog, and when new people come into the kennel, her first reaction is often to show off how high she can jump. She’s not crazy, we swear! Once she’s out of the kennel, she’s more interested in belly rubs than anything else.
Mercedes has already spent 3 holiday seasons at our adoption center, and the best gift EVER, for her and for us, would be for her to finally be in her forever home by Christmas. She’s looking for a single-pet, indoor home and would make a great running partner or agility dog. Her petfinder profile is here and her adoption fee has been sponsored!
Just wanted to add an update to yesterday’s Adoptable Friday. My pup JB has been with me for almost a week and we are inseparable. He is practically perfect, and hasn’t eaten my socks!!! Oh yes, and PLEASE ADOPT!
Sheila is a sweet 3 y/o spayed lab/pit mix living at the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter for the past 2+ years waiting for her forever home. She is a shelter favorite to bring home for sleepovers, the beach, and offsite adoption events. Her favorite thing to do is shower her human in kisses, whether they want them or not! With her limited exposure to the outside world, she can be a bit nervous, so her forever family would need to be patient when introducing her to new things. She is great with kids and other dogs.
