Pawsitively adorable: Meet 42 adoptable dogs and cats looking for love | Pets

This brindle beauty is more than ready to come out of the shelter and into a loving foster home or forever home. She dreams of a life of comfort, snacks, and love from her human family. At the shelter she has become a staff favorite and can often be found in our field out for a walk, trying to brace herself on her knees while staff work on the computer or showing off her training skills in the yard. !

Elaine has the small back, the deep chest and the typical energy of a boxer! She says the scales lie and often squeeze into a dog-sized basket, bed, or human lap much smaller than her. His hilarious antics are sure to bring laughs to any family. She loves running, jumping and lounging in the pool! She’s so excited to be with her people that she jumps high in the air to caress your face! While many think it’s adorable, it would probably be too much for young children.

Elaine can be quite vocal when initially left alone in her kennel. She loves her people and doesn’t want to see them go. For this reason, the apartments might not be a perfect fit. Her new family will need to take some time to help her settle in and feel comfortable in her new home before they leave her alone. Our TSPCA trainer can walk them through how to prepare sweet Elaine for success!

Elaine has been to dog parks and done well, but can be a bit overwhelming one-on-one, so she would need a tolerable or fluffy canine sibling in a home. We also think she would be more than happy to be a spoiled dog!

Elaine is a mixed boxer. She is about 2 years old and weighs 45 lbs. She has been spayed, vaccinated, tested for heartworm (negative), microchipped and is up to date on parasite prevention.
