Paws & Pals: Dogs up for adoption at Town of North Hempstead Animal Shelter on July 24
Napoleon is a 10-year-old male American Staffordshire Terrier. Napoleon, a sweet and easy-going senior boy, wants nothing but to spend his golden years in the sun next to his forever companion. Napoleon originally came to the shelter as a stray in 2015, and quickly stole all of the volunteers' hearts. He was featured on a holiday edition of News 12’s Dog Day Fridays and was adopted immediately after into a loving home. Sadly, his owner passed away early this year and he was returned to the shelter's care. Napoleon would make a wonderful companion for someone that enjoys relaxing as much as he does. He also enjoys short walks on nice days, treats, and snuggle sessions. Napoleon is friendly with all people he meets, but would like to be the only pet in the home.
Myrtle is a 2-year-old female German Shepherd. Myrtle came to the shelter as a stray in February 2020. She is a typical, high energy German Shepherd that is seeking an active family that can keep up with her. Myrtle wants to learn, she is doing well with her commands so far. She would thrive in a Shepherd-experienced adult home (children aged 16+) that is dedicated to continuing her training and working on her manners. Myrtle can be hesitant when she meets new people but with patience and a few treats she warms up quickly. After taking her for a few walks, throwing the tennis ball, and giving her a back scratch you will have a loyal friend for life. She enjoys the company of canine companions but would get along best with a dog that is similar in size, energy, and play style - a meeting at the shelter with any other dogs in the home would be required.
Zeus is a 10-year-old male Pit Bull Terrier mix. Zeus is the longest resident at the Town of North Hempstead Animal Shelter and it is hard to believe that he has not found his perfect home yet. This handsome, loving boy has a signature one ear up, one ear down look that you can’t help but admire! Zeus is a goofball that lives for belly rubs, rides in the car, and walks on nature trails. He knows all of his commands and he aims to please, especially if there are treats in your pocket. Zeus is very friendly and outgoing when meeting new people, he doesn’t quite understand “personal space.” Despite his age, he is still a very strong and exuberant dog and would do best in a dog-savvy home without small children. Zeus is seeking a new best friend who understands that he needs to be the only pet in the house.
