Interested in adopting a pet — or just gazing at some adorable pups near you up for adoption? There are dozens of darling puppies up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Detroit.

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 puppies currently available for adoption.

(Details like pet availability, training, vaccinations and other features are based on data provided by Petfinder and may be subject to change; contact the shelter for the latest information.)


Chompers, pit bull terrier

Chompers is a darling male pit bull terrier puppy currently residing at Rebel Dogs Detroit.

Chompers plays well with others, and he gets along well with cats, dogs and children. He has been vaccinated. Have no fear: He is already house-trained.

From Chompers' current caretaker:

Chompers is part of a litter we had surrendered to us due to severe neglect. The puppies were extremely emaciated, and it took many weeks for them to catch up. Now they are healthy, feisty, snuggly and also paper-trained. The puppies are daily socialized with people and other dogs.

Six, pit bull terrier and boxer mix

Six is a male pit bull terrier and boxer puppy staying at Rebel Dogs Detroit.

Six is happy to keep company with cats, dogs and children. His vaccinations are already up to date.

Here's what Six's friends at Rebel Dogs Detroit think of him:

We caught Six as a stray and no owner came forth. He was suffering from a terrible skin infection, but the cause was luckily Demodex, which means he isn't contagious and can now find a home. He is receiving treatment but is not itchy. Six is a particularly lazy puppy, who is likely to grow into a lazy dog. His favorite way to spend his time is to wag his tail and kiss you. Six is four months old and can walk on the leash. He can still use somewhat frequent potty breaks but does well overall. Six is not very interested in chewing or dog play. He is just a big snuggler. He is crate trained and ready for home life immediately.
