7 Months old Spayed Female "Smart and spunky" mix!

This gorgeous girl is Aella. Aella came into ARFís care after being hit by a car and suffering from a broken leg and shoulder. After taking some time to heal, she is now ready to find her forever family. This girl loves the company of other dogs and doesnít let the slight hitch in her giddy-up slow her down. Currently Aella is living with two adults, two teenagers and one resident dog, who she loves to chase and wrestle with.

Aella loves everyone she meets and happily greets you with wiggles, wags and lots of puppy kisses. She is house trained and has quickly learned to ring the bell when she needs to go outside. She also sleeps well through the night, snuggled up on her bed on the floor. Due to her past injuries, Aella hasnít spent a lot of time walking on leash, so her forever family will need to help her work on her loose leash walking skills.

This smart girl is a quick study and very food motivated, making training a pleasure. Aella has shown good recall skills, as she loves spending time with her humans and never wants to be too far away. This gal is hoping to find a forever family with a fenced in yard, that has lots of time to spend giving her the exercise she needs and the belly rubs and snuggles she adores.

If you think you could be the family this loving carefree girl is looking for, please click the ďadopt meĒ icon beside her photo. Aella has been vaccinated, de-wormed, spayed and micro-chipped.

14 Months old Spayed Female "Social butterfly" mix!

Well hello there! I'm Isabella and I'm one happy rescue dog! I am looking for a home OUTSIDE OF THE CITY OF LONDON. My foster mom says I "exude happiness". I'm not sure what that means but I know my tail is always wagging, I'm always smiling and I absolutely love life. I was very thin and sick when ARF rescued me but now I'm feeling great. I'm a medium sized dog with a gorgeous girly figure now. Foster mom says I'm absolutely beautiful, inside and out!

My top ten list of things that keep me happy include: humans, playing with my canine buddies, long walks, swimming, car rides, off leash hikes in safe areas, squeaky toys, rawhides, peanut butter filled kings, and most of all, snuggling with my humans! I'd say I'm a pretty well rounded gal.

I've been told I'm a very social butterfly. Foster mom gives me tasty liver treats when I remember to sit nicely and remember those things she calls "manners". Humans are just so amazing and sometimes I get a little too excited. Foster mom says I'm working hard and I'm a very good student. I've already earned an A+ when it comes to crate training, leash walking, recall, and expert couch cuddler.

I'm a bubbly girl who loves to go places and get lots of exercise and stimulation. I'm looking for an active family who will include me in their daily activities without too much alone time. I'm spayed, fully vaccinated, and micro-chipped as well. If you're looking for an energetic canine friend with loads of loving personality, all it takes is a click on the "Adopt Me" icon next to my picture to get things started. Looking forward to meeting you!

When she isnít outside running around, Lana enjoys a good snuggle up on the couch accompanied by a couple of puppy kisses.

Lana is searching for a loving, active family that will help her continue to work on calm introductions with both people and other dogs. As a result, Lana would be best suited to a home with older children, as her excitement can at times get the better of her.

6 Months old Neutered Male 'Splish splashing' mix!

Hey everyone, I'm Russel! Right now, I am living in a foster home with two adults and one resident dog, who I adore. I can be a bit shy at first around new people and doggie friends until I get to know them, but then I open up and let them see my fun loving side. I love to play! Whether its a good game of tug-of-war, fetch or even a good splash around in the tub. Who knew getting clean could be so much fun!

Since coming into my foster home, I have learned to be quite comfortable in my crate and now sleep soundly through the night. I am told that my house training is coming along nicely and with a little more work and positive praise I should be good to go. When out on walks I do my best to not pull, but sometimes my excitement takes over. There's just so many fun new things to experience!

If you are looking for a cheerful companion who also enjoys a good snuggle, then I'm your guy! I have been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and de-wormed. Simply click the 'adopt-me' icon beside my photo to start the adoption process.

4 Months old Neutered Male "Curious and cuddly" mix!

Hi Iím Tootsie and I came into foster care with my brother Smartie. We are staying in a home with three adults, one child and multiple resident dogs and cats. I have a nice warm crate, where I can go to unwind and sleep through the entire night with no problem at all. Iím also working hard on my house training and with some positive praise and treats Iím sure Iíll be an expert in no time.

I love spending time playing games of chase, tug and hide and go seek. I am learning to enjoy car rides and leash walks, but these are still very new for me. Iím also still learning about these things called cats, so slow introductions with them or other small animals would be best.

I am told that I am a very handsome boy and would make a great, loyal companion. I am searching for a forever home that will help me continue to flourish and come out of my shell by loving me with all their heart.

I have been neutered, micro-chipped, dewormed and vaccinated. If you think you could be my forever match, just click on the ďadopt meĒ icon beside my photo.
