These lists are created in hopes of encouraging potential adopters to consider a range of breeds and breed mixes when adopting. Our goal is to generate awareness of the many types of smart dogs, friendly dogs, and others, and to encourage people to look beyond the types they’ve always known. Each dog is an individual and should be evaluated as such.
