Following our mission of preventing animal homelessness in our community, the Humane Society of Pinellas are happy you’re here. When you adopt a dog from HSP, you will take home a new pet that has been microchipped, vaccinated, and spayed or neutered. Our dogs are vaccinated according to shelter standards and up-to-date for the pet’s age and current health. This may mean your adopted dog or puppy may need additional vaccines post-adoption.
Before you check out our available dogs, please know that we have changed our adoption procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Meet Your New Wagging Companion
If you want to welcome a new dog into your family, these lovable four-legged friends are currently available for adoption at The Humane Society of Pinellas.
All senior dogs aged 7 years and older are part of The Humane Society of Pinellas’ Diamond Dogs program. These beloved grey muzzles are offered extra pampering post-adoption, including daycare, grooming and even water park passes with Love My Dog Resort & Playground.

Argo, Blue Heeler (Australian Cattle Dog)
4 years old/Male/Neutered
Owner/Foster’s Contact: Nathaniel 863-512-3016
(Due to high calls of ‘car extended warranty scams’, please leave a voicemail and I’ll get back to you.);
Argo is a Blue Heeler (Australian Cattle Dog). He loves to be with people and has never met a stranger. Argo is very smart and loves to play. He is great with everyday routines and will follow them once set.
Argo loves to play. If you give him a squeaky chew toy he will destroy it in minutes. I recommend a thick tug rope or thick chew bones that will last longer. When playing with a person Argo doesn’t know his own strength and his play can get a bit rough at times. He needs work on this issue.
Argo has High energy even after taking him for a 2 mile walk, he will look at you and say what’s next. He is crate trained and house broken. There was only one accident but that was human error. I was distracted and did not let him out when he asked repeatedly.
He has always been in a single dog home, so he doesn’t know how to get along with other animals. But with social training he could be ready to have siblings down the road.
He was a rescue and therefore does have a couple special needs. He has separation anxiety, so he would prefer someone that worked from home or was retired. He never likes being left behind, but is always thrilled when you return home. He is also scared of loud noises, so thunder and fireworks triggers a nervous response. A crate or small dark space makes him feel safe.

Diesel is a 5 year old, neutered, loving pitbull that was my ex-boyfriend’s. I have been taking care of Diesel until I can find him a new forever home. He loves to go on walks, swim, and snuggle. He is a very affectionate dog. Diesel has had issues with other dogs in the past, so he needs training or to be the only pet in the home.
Between 8-10 years/feMALE/spayed
OWNER/FOSTER’S CONTACT: Rob Paulie
The original owner adopted Millie a little over 6 years ago but decided she no longer wanted responsibility for Millie. The original owner’s mother had too many pets and surrendered her into the care of my boyfriend, Rob. He’s been taking great care of Millie since. It was said that Millie came from a neglectful background and she most likely was abused. I would describe her personality as very shy, reserved but loving as she’ll sit at one’s feet to get pets but tucks her tail. When it breakfast or dinner time, she wags her tail as most dogs do but she’ll wait until you walk away to start eating. As she gets to know you, she gets comfortable with someone’s presence while eating. She loves going for walks and being outside no matter the weather 🙂 Millie has displayed no aggressive tendencies with known and novel people, myself included! As she is older, she would most likely benefit in a home with 1 or no other pets, an environment that is sort of chill and low energy but she can be in a home with teenagers or young adults.

Smokey, Australian Shepherd (Blue Merle)
3 years old/Male/Not Neutered
Owner/Foster’s Contact: Glen (850)902-3009
Smokey is a full-size Australian Shepherd Blue Merle. His birthday is 7/16/2018. He has not been neutered. He just received all his shots in January 2021. He is leash trained, potty trained and he knows basic commands. Knows how to spot. He has a mellow demeanor. He is smart, sweet, and kind. He is also an alpha male. He is good with kids. Once he gets to know you, he falls in love with you. He will protect his owner. He would be awesome for a one-pet family. He is great at the dog park but at home, it is his territory, so he isn’t good with smaller pets. He gets along with pets his size and larger. He loves to go on walks to dog parks and to the beach.
Smokey is a great dog that has been spoiled and is loving and will protect his family. I hate letting him go, but I must because I own other Australian Shepherds. So, if you are looking for a great dog that is trained. Please contact me. Let’s set up a meeting and see if you’re a right fit for Smokey.
