If you're on the lookout for a new pet for you or your family, look no further.
Whether you want a dog, a cat, or even a furry little friend to complete your home, think adoption first! There are hundreds of lovable pets just waiting for you to take them home in rescue leagues and shelters everywhere.
Check out these 10 pets available for adoption from the Broken Tail Rescue League, below
My name is Lola. I am a year and a half old old, 40 lb, yellow lab mix who hails from Texas. Like most dogs my age, I am still learning some of my manners. I am looking for someone to show me the ropes using patience and positive training methods. I was the victim of some negative training tactics and it scared me and made it hard for me to trust people. I am looking for a relationship based on love and mutual respect. If you show me love and affection and throw in some treats, I will do my best to please you.
I'm Butterbean, an adorable young, neutered male chihuahua with a contagious smile. I am 2 years old and a pipsqueak. I only weigh 9 lbs.
Butterbean loves the ladies but is not so fond of men or children. Butterbean has been traumatized in his past so he's terrified of men. He would love a home with a patient woman who understands that this little guy needs time to settle in and feel secure. He's an affectionate boy when he accepts you. He likes other dogs so a dog buddy would be great. He loves to go for a walk and gets excited when he sees the leash. Playing fetch is his favorite game but he's not so good at giving up the ball! Butterbean sleeps quietly in his crate at night. Up to date on all his shots, negative for heart worm and Lyme and micro-chipped too.
Rebecca is a gorgeous adult female chihuahua who is 13 years old who is good with dogs and children. For her age, she is very peppy. Her dream home would have a fenced in yard so she could trot and prance around and run very fast!
Calling all Min Pin groupies ... Rocky, aka the RockStar, is a 4 year old bachelor looking for a special someone to enjoy life with.
This darling boy will steal your heart and leave a permanent smile on your face. He puts his whole heart into everything he does whether it be relaxing on the couch with his favorite person or chasing leaves outside. He is always ready for a snuggle or a walk.
Sophia is a very, very sweet 4-6 year old chihuahua mix weighing about 10 pounds. She gets along well with dogs and cats, but all she really wants is to be with her person. Sophia follows her foster mom everywhere and at night will dance on her back legs to get her mom over to the couch where they can snuggle together. Sophia will come running from anywhere in the house when she hears her name called! Sophia is good with the teenagers in her foster home, but like many small delicate dogs, she would prefer a home without small children.
Cornbread is a wonderful and amicable cat who'd love nothing more than to spend the entire day by your side the minute you take him home! A polite and well-behaved eight-year-old adult cat, Cornbread is a mellow companion who does not have high energy requirements and loves to chill next to you--though he still has a kittenish disposition when it comes to playing! He has a wealth of affection to give, and would love to show you his many quirks--like yawning with his big toothless mouth or gently tapping your arm when he wants to be pet.
Gravy was rescued from the streets on Thanksgiving, and he's been showing his gratitude ever since!
Gravy has that grumpy old man look, but that's just his own version of RBF. He's a lovely fellow with a friendly and curious nature. He's gotten along with resident cats in his foster homes, and loves attention from humans, too.
Zane is a very good boy who was living outside but has adapted well to being indoors. He's enjoying regular meals, a warm safe place to sleep, and does not tire of receiving cheek scratches and pets. He's got a luxuriously soft coat that is a pleasure to pet. His favorite is being curry combed and melts into a puddle. He likes getting pets in between bites of his food and sometimes expresses his opinion about his food.
Patrick is a very handsome and friendly 3-year old tuxedo with dense soft fur and light green eyes.
Patrick can be very affectionate, especially during meal times, but is not much of a cuddler or lap cat. He prefers to lounge around on his own but still be nearby you. Like his formal attire, he is very proper and will always use a scratching post rather than any surface or furniture. He also has the polite habit of greeting you with soft meows and gentle head butts.
Mrs. Maisel is a charming, affectionate 14 year old with plushy all-black fur and big bright eyes. Her favorite things are love, love, more love, and cheese. She purrs and kneads her round little paws and bonks you with her little round head and wants all the pats. She responds to attention lovingly but with the occasional light love-nip, so she's looking for an adult-only home with people who are used to cat body-language. She enjoys having her silky-soft fur brushed and will make a fabulous companion. She has lived with other cats in the past, but likes to be the little Princess, so slow introductions are a must.
