Looking for a fur-ever friend? Check out these adoptable pets from Detroit Animal Care and Control

They say dogs are man's best friend. If you've ever owned a pet, or cried your eyes out watching Marley & Me, then you know the pure joy having a furry friend can bring. Unfortunately, many dogs are abandoned every day, some sent to shelters for a variety of reasons.

At the Detroit Animal Care and Control, there are constantly new pets being left in the shelter's care. All wanting new forever homes. We've partnered with DACC to share some of their current adoptable pets.

All photos and captions provided by Detroit Animal Care and Control.

To inquire about any of the pets featured please email the animal's name and ID number to [email protected] To see all dogs available for adoption at DACC, please visit their Facebook page, Adoptable Animals at DACC.

 Haisley
A145166 
65 lb. spayed female, approx 4 yrs old
(My foster dad calls me “Korra”). I’m a happy, goofy, energetic, and cuddly girl. I always get compliments on how beautiful I am! Am I grey? Or am I brown? Who knows—all I know is I’m fabulous, especially in the sun.
I absolutely LOVE people (maybe too much as I tend to jump, but I’ve gotten better), but dogs have been a bit of a hit-or-miss with me. I haven’t been around cats.
I have learned so much since I got out of the shelter! I’m roughly four years old and had just about no training at all prior, and I am now housebroken, potty-trained, have learned “sit”, “lie down”, “stay”, “touch”, “shake”, “crate,” and I can wait for my food after you give me the “sit-stay” command, and then go to town after you tell me, “okay!” 
I was afraid of the leash harness, and I will now happily sit and let you put it on me. However, I’m quite strong on the leash.
I was also afraid of the car, but my foster dad showed me it can take me to new places. I’ll go in, but the window being down scares me.
Crate training has been a work in progress, but I was also afraid of that initially. Now, I’ll happily go in one and chill out in there on my own accord. It’s just when you close the gate I start getting worried. Being alone took me some time to get used to, but I’ve gotten so much better at it! I’ve never destroyed anything out of anxiety—I just whine and…sometimes throw up from the anxiety. I’ve been left alone up to 10 hours without an accident, and the most damage I’ve done in the house is I throw the pillows and blanket off the couch.
My foster dad took me on this amazing journey to show me the world is an amazing place! I’m very smart and learn quickly, and with a good trainer and exercise I can be an even more amazing dog than I already am. If you want a fun, cuddly friend—I’m your girl.
