"I'm a super-spunky guy who likes to weave in and out of my owner's legs, begging for attention, and play as much as I can! My favorite activity is to lie in the window watching the birds, so if you can get me a window lounger to lie in, that would be fantastic. Consider me, here!"

"Hello! My name is Baylor. I am a spunky, active dude that loves playing with tennis balls and being outside. I love going for walks and hikes and staying busy. I know "sit" very well and am super-adorable when I do it. I look forward to learning some more commands with my forever family, which is why I'm here. I am food-motivated and love treats. If I sound like the right dog for you, come out to meet me! Head on over to Baltimore Humane Society's website to check me out!"

"Can't you tell that I'm a goofy dude? I like to stick my tongue out of my mouth because I think it's cute! If you come to meet me, you will learn how playful and active I am and how much I love toys. I will need someone who can take me for long walks and set aside some time to play with me in between! Overall, I'm a great guy and would love for someone to give me a second chance!"
