Interested in adopting a pet — or just gazing at some cuddly canines up for adoption? There are dozens of endearing dogs up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Miami.

Animal shelters and pet rescue groups work hard to care for unhoused pets and connect them to loving homes. Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of dogs currently available for adoption.

Skye, American bulldog and terrier mix

Skye is a female American bulldog and terrier mix being cared for at All Things Pawsible Animal Rescue.

Skye is happy to keep company with other dogs, cats and children. She's mastered her house-training etiquette. She's been vaccinated, spayed and microchipped.

Skye's current caretakers say:

Skye was rescued from the streets at just eight months. Now one years old, this sweet, playful pup is in foster care and thriving. She loves to run around, cuddle and play with her chew toys. Skye would make a great addition to a family who loves the outdoors and has kids older than 5.

A neglected Bear, who could barely walk, was rescued from our local kill shelter just in time. This love bug enjoys walking around with his stuffed animals in his mouth and cuddling up next to you. Although he is older, he would make a great family dog. We promise he will melt your heart.

Hey Pug Lovers! I am Josie, a cuddly petite ball of cuteness. My favorite activities include snuggling on the couch, short walks, mealtimes and pup massages. I would do best in a home with a fenced yard—but without other dogs. Do you have room in your heart and home to welcome me?
