Interested in adopting a pet — or just taking a peek at some precious puppies 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.)

Milo, Australian shepherd and border collie mix

Milo is a darling male Australian shepherd and border collie puppy in the care of Home Fur-Ever.

Milo gets along well with other dogs. He is looking for cat-free household. Milo has mastered his house-training etiquette. He has had all his shots.

From Milo’s current caretaker:

Milo was surrendered because his breed was not the right fit for his previous owners. He is a herding dog, and people must be familiar with the breed, their habits and exercise requirements. He can be a bit timid at first, but once he gets to know you, he wants to be with you all the time. Milo is an active pup who needs another playful young dog. He’s a lot of fun, and if you have the time and are looking for a devoted companion, Milo should be a good fit for you. A home with a fenced yard is needed.

Jupiter, Staffordshire bull terrier mix

Jupiter is a female Staffordshire bull terrier puppy being cared for at Paws and Think Detroit.

Jupiter is the life of the party; she loves kids, dogs and cats. She already has had all of her shots.

From Jupiter’s current caretaker:

Jupiter is possibly an American staffordshire terrier mix and is the largest female from her litter, which fits great with her name, Jupiter (the largest planet). She’s a shy girl who just wants to be cuddled. Jupiter gets nervous when she’s out of her comfort zone, but when she’s given toys, she perks right up. She’s gentle and just a sweetheart.

Meatball, Staffordshire bull terrier mix

Meatball is a darling male Staffordshire bull terrier puppy in the care of Paws and Think Detroit.

Meatball is friendly as can be. He’ll get along great with cats, dogs and kids. Meatball is vaccinated.

Meatball’s current caretakers say:

Meatball is the largest puppy of the pack. He’s patient and not overbearing, but don’t let that fool you, he’ll definitely want to nap on the couch and cuddle. He likes playing outside and has pretty good manners for being a puppy. Meatball sticks to himself mostly and is pretty laid back.

Sassy, pit bull terrier

Sassy is an adorable female pit bull terrier puppy in the care of Rebel Dogs Detroit.

Sassy is vaccinated. She is a special needs pet, so please inquire about her specific care requirements.

Sassy’s current caretakers say:

Sassy came to Rebel Dogs as a stray with a lacking paw. The wound has now healed, and she can find her forever home. Are you ready to learn who is the boss? Sassy takes on big and small dogs in play and has the personality of a queen. She currently lives in foster care and puts weight on her stump. This may or may not change; there is a chance that she will need further amputation. (The factors are weight, abrasion and the way she uses it once she is bigger.) Because that decision can’t be made now, we ask that Sassy’s adopters understand and commit to future care (hopefully, little to none).

Notes from Boss’ caretakers:
