Name: Simmy Shelter: Bideawee Westhampton Age: 3 Details: mixed; spayed ID: 36425454

Striking Simmy has got a look, no doubt about it—those blue eyes, deep coat, great face—but there’s so much more to her than her mug. Best-suited to a home without children or other canines, once she bonds to you she’ll be an affectionate best friend around the clock who will want to hang with you on hikes or just cuddle on the couch.

Beautiful Bella is still just a puppy—a big loving adolescent pooch to be sure—and one thing she’s really big on is meeting new people and making fresh friends. She loves to play with toys, especially when someone she loves is playing fetch with her—but she also loves lap-time and snuggling. Due to her active nature, she’s best suited to a home without children and other pets. Visit Bideawee Westhampton online at bideawee.org or call 631-684-0079 for more information.

Name: Bella Baby Shelter: Posh Pets Rescue Age: 5 Details: American Staffordshire Terrier; spayed

Bella Baby is a beauty with some special needs; she lost her hearing following surgeries she needed after being rescued.

Petunia

Name: Petunia Shelter: Posh Pets Rescue Age: 8
Credit: Linda Vetrano

Name: Shep Shelter: Town of Babylon Animal Shelter Age: 8 Details: German Shepherd; neutered ID: 19-382

Shep is a seriously loyal and protective guy who takes sticking to his person to the extreme—so he’s not a social guy. However, if you are looking for a doggie who will be dedicated to you through and through—and you don’t have any spouses, children, dogs or cats in the place—this guy will be all about you. Visit the Town of Babylon Animal Shelter online at townofbabylon.com or call 631-643-9270 for more information.

Credit: Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter and Adoption Center

Name: Rufio Shelter: Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter and Adoption Center Age: 8 ID: 43826075 Details: Terrier mix; neutered

Surrendered by his former owner, Rufio spent every day of his life outside, and never received the care, love and respect any living thing deserves. He’s understandably nervous around new people, and is best suited to be the only dog in a home, but there’s no doubt a loving home is exactly what he deserves. Contact the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter and Adoption Center at 516-785-5220 or email them at adoption@tohmail.org for more information.

Wonderful Wally didn’t have it easy before arriving at the shelter; he was found as a stray with scars on his face and front legs. Super-sweet and loving, he may be a terrier but is a real attention hound! He’s not used to other dogs however, so a best situation for him with to be with a forever family that’s experienced with nervous pooches.

Surrendered by his former owner, Buster didn't do well in the shelter kennels, but when brought into the office turned out to be calm, quiet and affectionate. He also loves playing with other dogs, but is shy with new people, so a best forever situation for him would start with several introductions; he also needs some dedicated help on his leash training. Contact the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter and Adoption Center at 516-785-5220 or email them at adoption@tohmail.org for more information.

Stanley

Name: Stanley Shelter: Town of Babylon Animal Shelter
Credit: Town of Babylon Animal Shelter

Name: Stanley Shelter: Town of Babylon Animal Shelter Age: 2 1/2 years Details: Pitbull mix; neutered ID: 19-200

Stanley is a major-league mush—and while it’s obvious he’s missing a leg, anyone who meets him will see he’s still loaded with energy and is a ton of fun. He loves to run, loves to play, loves people and loves life, and while he’s still mastering his manners and tends to get super-excited around people—but once he’s spent some times burning off that energy, he gets calm and likes to hang out. Visit the Town of Babylon Animal Shelter online at townofbabylon.com or call 631-643-9270 for more information.

Gary

Name: Gary Shelter: Town of Babylon Animal Shelter

Cora

Name: Cora Shelter: Town of Babylon Animal Shelter
Credit: Town of Babylon Animal Shelter

Name: Cora Shelter: Town of Babylon Animal Shelter Age: 2-3 years Details: Pitbull mix; neutered ID: 19-200

Sweet and a ball of fun, funny Cora is also big on belly rubs. She arrived at the shelter in poor condition but has rebounded and is now a star of the shelter scene. She really loves people—and is known to get very attached—so the situation best-suited to her would be with a family who won’t leave her alone for too long and will work with her on her anxiety. Additionally, while she adores people, she does not dig her fellow dogs at all, so a fit right for her is one where she'd be the only pooch in the place. Visit the Town of Babylon Animal Shelter online at townofbabylon.com or call 631-643-9270 for more information.

Caramel

Name: Caramel Shelter: Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter
Credit: Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter and Adoption Center

Name: Caramel Shelter: Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter and Adoption Center Age: 3 Details: Shiba Inu mix; spayed ID: 39748817

Caramel arrived at the shelter after being surrendered due to behavioral issues—but it seems that was due to her not receiving the training she needed to become a properly social pooch. These days, she’s good on some basic commands and is good on her leash, but she does need some time to warm up to new people. However, once she loves you, you’ll have a playful lady on your hands who aims to please. She is very noise sensitive—even the sound of strong wind unnerves her—so a best forever home for her would be one where she receives structure and would be the only dog in the home. Contact the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter and Adoption Center at 516-785-5220 or email them at adoption@tohmail.org for more information.

This great guy is Gus—super-social and friendly, he loves hanging out with humans of any age. A sunbather and nature explorer, he’s also good on his leash and knows how to “sit.” He’s ready for a dream home (and that would preferably also be cat-free).
