Meet our JHS Dolly’s Dream Dogs:

Velvet

Word on the street is that Velvet’s fur is even SOFTER than actual velvet. There’s only one way to find out – stop by JHS and meet her! Velvet is a super sweet, playful lady who loves stuffed squeaky toys, belly rubs, and napping with blankets and pillows. She can be a little shy at first but once she gets to know you will crawl into your lap for snuggles.

Velvet’s adoption is sponsored by the Dolly’s Dream Foundation, and she will go home with a leash, collar, and 6 months of heartworm prevention. If you’d like to meet her, just stop by our adoption center at 8464 Beach Blvd.!

Daisy

Daisy is a friendly, active gal whose favorite hobbies include napping on soft couches, playing outside, and getting lots of butt scratches from her favorite people. She’s also a big fan of treats, chew toys, and being petted.

Daisy’s adoption is sponsored by the Dolly’s Dream Foundation, and she will go home with a leash, collar, and 6 months of heartworm prevention. If you’d like to meet her, just stop by our adoption center at 8464 Beach Blvd.!

Boss



Looking for a couch cuddle buddy for your next movie night? Look no further! Boss is a chill, friendly dog whose hobbies include napping and snuggling with people of all ages. He’s an official JHS kids’ camp dog and also enjoys Pawsitive Reading.

Boss’s adoption is sponsored by the Dolly’s Dream Foundation and includes a leash and collar! Come meet him at 8464 Beach Blvd. JHS is open 7 days a week.

About the Program

Since 2017, JHS has not used breed labels. If you walk through the kennels or look at our website, you will see “mixed breed” for all of our dogs. Why? We believe that it’s important to know the dog for who they are and not how they look.  However, that doesn’t stop some from believing stereotypes and myths about certain breeds that make it difficult to find these dogs homes.  Our “blocky head” friends who look like a “bully breed” are wonderful, loving companions and thanks to Dolly, their dream of finding homes will come true!

Dolly’s Dream is a project to encourage the adoption of our “blocky-head” pups and to help counter the unfortunate stereotypes and myths that some people still believe about these dogs.  JHS finds homes and new families for thousands of these dogs each year.  They are adopted by a wide variety of people – single people, couples, grandparents and families with children of all ages.

Each month, the Dolly’s Dream project sponsors at least two JHS dogs.  When you choose to adopt one of these dogs, you may* receive:

  • Waived Adoption Fee (FREE)
  • Collar
  • Leash
  • Food
  • Crate, bowls, toys
  • Free enrollment in the JHS Training Class of your choice

How it started:

Dolly was a bully-type dog who changed the heart and mind of the man who adopted her with her sweet and loving personality. She showed him that dogs like her can be just as sweet and loving as any other dog. In her honor, Dolly’s Dream provides second chances for dogs across the nation.
