There are so many sweet animals available for adoption in Cabarrus County. It's always a good idea to peruse your local animal shelter, such as Ruth's Memorial: Cabarrus Humane Society, before looking for puppies from a breeder. 

Last month, we published an article that highlighted certain dogs that just love the heat, "5 Dog Breeds That Love the Heat." Below are a few adoptable dogs looking for their forever homes, that would also love to get outside with you! Keep reading -- you might find your new best friend today. 


Meet Terracina.  She is a 3 year old Chihuahua mix who is looking for her forever home. 

She would do best in a home where there are no small children and a warm lap for her to sit on. 

She's super sweet and very quiet.  


Meet Ellis.  Ellis is a 1 year old lab/boxer mix who was adopted and returned to us when his owner lost his home. 

He is playful and loves to be outside and with his people.  He is house trained and loves other dogs, as well. 

He will be a great addition to any family.

Sandy Loo

Meet Sandy Loo.  She is an 8 year old sweet girl who was surrendered for some unknown reason. 

She would do best in a home where there are no small children.  Sandy Loo is a lapdog who just wants a warm lap to sit on. 

She's a really sweet little girl who is ready for her forever home with someone who wants a quiet little girl who likes attention and a sweet companion.

Neely Rose

Meet Neely Rose.  She is a very shy hound mix who would do best living in a home where there is land for her to roam and a huge back yard as she LOVES being outdoors. 

She is super shy and would do best in a home where there are no small children as they are somewhat intimidating to her. 

She does love people though and would love a home where she can bond with her people and learn to trust them.  


Meet Scooby.  Scooby is a very handsome boxer mix who is playful, loving and ready for his forever home. 

He loves to be outside playing or walking on a leash with his person. 

He gets along well with other dogs and would great in a home that already has a dog.
