I wasn’t smiling when I first got here. In fact I was quite upset and wore a scowl for a week until I got to know the volunteers. Then I realized they were there to take care of me, walk me and dote on me, which made me smile and wag my tail. You see ... I had a home in N.Y., but one of the kids devel-oped allergies to me. I went to live with their grandparents, but my size and strength were too much for the seniors. That’s why I became a shelter dog, but I hope that is a brief interlude in my life.

Every person I meet falls for me, but the right home has been elusive. So many people have dogs – which is fine with me – but several that I met recently have not enjoyed my well-meaning, but pushy play style. They have all said “no” to my joining their pack. So I’m still waiting despite being housebroken, taking treats gently, and sitting and lying down on command. That’s a pretty nice package to start with and I’m only going to improve. I’m a big beautiful American Bulldog weighing about 90 lbs., but not too tough to walk on leash. Women who hardly weigh more than I do walk and handle me every day here at the shelter.

Some say I look more like a “Humphrey” than a “Drago”, but I’ll respond to any name I’m given as long as I’m loved. I can wait for the right family. I just hope the wait is not much longer.

Come visit me and be captivated by my charm, eye-catching looks and affectionate demeanor. Pet my two-tone blockhead and sleek muscled physique. Ask me to sit and delight in how gently I take treats from your fingertips. You’ll be diggin’ it, I guarantee!

Bah, humbug to anyone who thinks I’m in any way handicapped. Come let me take YOU for a walk! I’m a new arrival from the Carolinas where I fell out of a pickup truck and broke my leg so badly, they had to take it off. I’m so glad to be pain-free and have not let this little setback — a foolish mistake by some dumb human — set me back at all.

As soon as my deep, dark chocolate coat starts filling in where they shaved me, you will be further dazzled by my beauty. For now, gazing upon my gorgeous brown head and golden eyes is plenty of eye-candy to behold. Glance at the other end of me and notice that my tail never stops wagging with happiness, curiosity and determination.

A picture perfect Labrador Retriever on three legs, not quite a year old, I have the pulling power of a tow truck. I’m also an excellent excited jumper, but only with the intention of landing a chin lick on you. Nothing more than affection radiates from my warm, fun-loving spirit. I befriend everyone I meet and so far, they all think the world of me. I’m hoping that this temporary stop on my way to a new home will be a short one, like the movie title — “A River Runs Through It.” In the meantime, I will simply melt every heart between here and my new family. .

Big paws, furrowed brow and impressive in size, I’m a 2-year-old, toy-seeking, fun-loving, bull-in-a-china-shop kinda guy.

Afer being hauled in from another state by a dog-loving volunteer intent on my finding a happy home, it has been a real adventure for me. All sorts of volunteers have been dragged around by my leash, but they have all enjoyed my company.

My good nature and soul-searching eyes tug at their heartstrings even when I’m tearing up a plush toy right in front of them. I have the looks of a yellow labrador retriever from many angles, with a couple of distinct wrinkles on my forehead. Could there be Shar-pei in my lineage that makes me look quite studious?

Whatever my mix might be, it adds up to one handsome specimen with strength to match my sociable temperament. Nothing much fazes me. I’m comfortable around most every person and have had a few dog buddies along the way. I started out as a stray and when a found a farm with people who took an interest in me, I stuck around as long as I could, but they couldn’t keep me. They had kids and three dogs and although they thought the world of me, they let me go knowing that other people would fall in love with me. It hasn’t quite happened yet, but I have a good feeling that it’s gonna happen soon.

Like an outta control freight train, I blew in from another locale and dusted the place up zooming from room to room in the adoption trailer choosing various toys to suit my mood.

I am an exceptionally affectionate boy. I’m only a year or so old with puppy written all over my expressive face. Lucky me that I wandered onto a farm porch many states ago and the woman who found me took a special interest in me, paid for my transport so I could have a nice shot at a great new home.

From different angles, I look like a boxer, lab, terrier, bully...all rolled into one unique, sleek, black package. I know the basics...sit and stay and am highly motivated by treats ... perfect for training. My rambunctious streak is nothing new in a dog my age confined in a kennel. With a modicum of exercise and a little brush up on training, I would make an amazing companion for an active adult family or one with older kids.

Sweet is the word that is most used to describe me. Photogenic, not so much! Yet up close, my dark freckles show through my snow-white coat and both of my super-soft ears are a lovely taupe color that gives me a truly unique look.

I’m one of many bully mixes, most likely an American bull dog mix but much smaller in stature. I’m a dream walker, rarely pulling and always waiting for my next queue. I sit for treats and take them gently from hands.

As my excitement increases, I tend to want to jump up and give kisses, but have been rebuffed in the name of good manners.

I like everyone I meet...adults and kids alike, and I would prefer to lap up all their love myself rather than share it with another dog.
I’m a great passenger on car rides. It’s really fun! How about you drive on over and take me for a spin?

When it’s time to “Buddy Up” I hope you think of me. Having the most popular name for a dog has gotten me nowhere so far. I was in a foster home for a few months but my foster mom worked long hours and I was alone too much. I’m very good company — social, outgoing and loyal to a fault. Some other great qualities I possess include being potty-trained and walking well on leash.

There are some dogs I like and others I tolerate but I won’t be pulling your arm out to lunge at them. I don’t care that much. I can even live peaceably with a cat if the situation calls for it. I’m very flexible! Specifically, I am your basic, mid-size, middle-age, beagle-boxer mix with a little extra padding that I’m hoping to walk off. Maybe we can do that together.
