INTRODUCTION As told by Adeline

I had been a part of a family since I was a puppy, and we shared a deep love for each other. However, I had difficulty interacting with their two small children as they have more energy than I can keep up with, making me nervous. I’m much more comfortable around older humans, as I love getting attention and affection from them. I’m a big softie at heart!

I do enjoy the company of other dogs and cats, and going for car rides is always exciting for me. I take a two- to three-mile walk every day. I even get to visit a local farm a few times a week where I run around like crazy, which is a good thing as I need to lose weight. I have already lost 2 pounds and I am eager to find a family that is active so that I can continue losing weight and have older humans to do fun things with.


Adeline is highly frightened by thunderstorms and fireworks. She takes Lorazepam when required for these situations. Additionally, she has a habit of counter-surfing, so it’s important to keep food out of reach. As previously mentioned, Adeline experiences anxiety when around young children, and therefore it’s best for her to live in a home with older children only.


Overall she is healthy but needs to lose about 15 more pounds.


Adeline is a lovable dog who would make a wonderful addition to a family with older children and other pets. She enjoys spending time with her human companions and other dogs. Adeline loves to go for walks and runs, so a family that is active would be ideal for her.
