Paws & Pals: Dogs up for adoption at Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter on Oct. 23

In this week's Paws & Pals, the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter presented three dogs looking for their 'furever' homes.
Azul is a 9-year-old terrier mix who came to the shelter after his owner died in 2017. The family's owner took him in, but could only care for him for a short while. Azul never lived inside the house and was very nervous when he first came to the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter. Since then, he has grown comfortable and loves other dogs. Azul even is regularly in play groups and helps the behavior team test new dogs. He is a laid-back dog who needs time warm up. He walks great on a leash and knows commands.
Bud came to the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter when he was just 10 months old. His owner was undergoing medical issues and wasn't able to take care of him, but two months later they were able to reclaim him. After another two months, Bud was returned again for behavior issues in the home. He is a black dog that must be the only pet in the house and adopter(s) must have experience with nervous dogs with stranger reactivity and guarding.
Juniper is a 5-year-old female that came to the shelter as a stray. She was found in February 2018 running loose on the streets. Juniper was terrified when she first came in, but is slowly coming out of her shell. She is currently in a foster home, where she is doing great. She loves to lay out in the sun and get love and attention from her foster mother. Juniper makes for a loyal friend, is smart, highly house and crate trained and is a great girl to hang out with. Her ideal home is a single-person household with no other pets.
Anyone with interest in meeting any of these dogs should email or call (516) 785-5220.
