Lego is an adorable Chihuahua looking for a calm predictable home. He is very frightened of new people and situations. It takes him along time to warm up but once he does he loves to cuddle. Lego does not enjoy the company of children and would prefer a home with older adults. He does still potty in the house but his previous owner said he will use potty pads. Lego barks when left alone and is not suited for apartment living. (Curt Story/Everett Animal Shelter)

A few good Everett Animal Shelter dogs await good homes

Meet Lego, Ruger and Wolverine, pets who are ready to be adopted into forever homes.

The Everett Animal Shelter hosts thousands of stray and unwanted animals every year. Some are adopted right away, but some sit in the shelter for weeks at a time, waiting for a home. The shelter has dogs and cats, as well as some rabbits and birds, all looking for a loving home.

All pets are vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and given a identifying microchip before they are adopted. Take a look at some of the dogs, cats and other animals that are available for adoption at the shelter now.

If you’re interested in adopting an animal, the shelter is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 425-257-6000.

Ruger is a handsome young dog looking for an ACTIVE forever home! His new home cannot have any small critters, cats, small dogs, chickens or anything else that is small and fun to chase. Rugar needs a home with older children, 12 years and up who can play an active role in his training. He will need a meet and greet with any resident canines. Ruger is not suited for apartment living and will need a secure fenced yard. This guy is just a big puppy and he will need to start training right away. (Curt Story/Everett Animal Shelter)

Wolverine is a young dog looking for a new chance. He came to us as a stray, so we are unsure of his history. He appears to need some basic obedience, potty training and socialization. He will need a home with lots of patience and love. He will need someone with Shepherd experience and ready to be home to help him get on a good training regiment. Wolverine will need a home with secure fences, no apart style living. He has been with other dogs and will need a meet and greet with any resident dogs. Wolverine possibly has lived his entire life as an outside dog. Children will need to be 12 years or older. Unsure if he will chase cats. (Curt Story/Everett Animal Shelter)
