First is ID No. 46699198 and volunteers have named him Sterling. He is a handsome all white domestic short hair. His eyes are ice blue and he has long white whiskers. He is very friendly and enjoys attention. He would be a loving companion.

Second is ID No. 46594246. Volunteers have named him Adden. He is a young adult American bulldog, 1-2 years old, and weighs approximately 55 pounds. His short coat is mostly white and he has one brown ear. Adden tested well with male and female dogs. He acts like a tough guy when he’s in his kennel but is a sweetheart when he is taken out. He is kid- and adult-friendly and always has a smile on his face. He is a fun dog!!
