Thinking about adopting a pet? These Long Island shelter dogs are looking for forever homes.

Here are pups of all ages available for adoption from North Shore Animal League, Sweetest Dog Rescue and other local shelters.

If you find a pooch you think might be right for you, call the shelter before heading out to make sure he or she is still available.

Teva

Teva, a 4-year-old Chihuahua mix, is a shy girl who was rescued from Dallas over two years ago. She likes other dogs and cats and is crate-trained. Teva would do best in a quiet home with no children. She may be shy with certain strangers, but once you are her human, she will love you forever. If you want to make Teva yours, visit www.arfhamptons.org.

Apollo

Apollo is a big boy at 3 years old, with an even bigger personality. He loves to play and prefers his toys to be as big as he is. Since coming to Animal Rescue Fund, Apollo has learned basic commands and is very treat-motivated to learn even more. He is strong on the leash, so an experienced owner used to handling big dogs would be best. He is crate-trained and seems to prefer female canine companions. Since he is a large dog, a home with older children and a fully fenced yard is required. If you want to make Apollo yours, visit www.arfhamptons.org.

Georgette

Georgette is a 2-year-old Pekingese mix. She was recently rescued from the meat trade in China. She gets along with other dogs and cats and is housebroken. She is a bit reserved at first, but can be very sweet and affectionate once she gets to know you. Considering her ordeal, we think she will do best in a quiet, adult-only home where she can finally be safe to live out her life as the canine companion she was meant to be. If you want to make Georgette yours, visit www.arfhamptons.org.
