When the temperatures drop down this low, it really makes me appreciate Ella (above), my longtime best friend and a champion cold-weather snuggler. It also makes me think about the dogs that haven’t found their forever homes and forever best friends yet.

Shelter dog adoption is something I’m really passionate about — inspired in a big way by Ella — and this offer always stands: If you’d like to adopt or foster a dog from Metro Nashville Animal Care & Control, I’m willing to sponsor. Just reach out and let me know about your plans.

Winter brings a great excuse to welcome a new snuggle buddy into your family, and there are a bunch of sweet dogs at MACC right now, ready to make your heart and your home feel a whole bunch warmer. Here are just a few:

Harriet’s about a year old, and a Pit mix that — I think you’ll agree — is quite the looker. The shelter staff says she’s a master snuggler, too. Learn more about Harriet.

Seriously, just look at this guy. Dudley’s a 2-year-old black and tan Coonhound, with ears for days. Learn more about Dudley.

See those puppy-dog eyes? Donald’s campaigning hard for your vote. He’s about 2 years old, a pit mix, and has all his own hair. Learn more about Donald.

Sweet Basenji Lily Ann’s puppy years are behind her — she’s about 6 — but she’s still full of energy, and a perfect pal for an active family. Learn more about Lily Ann.

If you’re able to look at gentle, 8-year-old pit mix Grampa’s big ol’ noggin’ and not melt, well, you’re made of stony stuff. Learn more about Grampa.

I’m not saying that young pit mix Buster’s mustache guarantees that he’d be an Internet-famous dog with a little bit of social-media dedication… But I’m not not saying that either. Learn more about Buster.

Heart sufficiently warmed yet?

If you’re planning on heading down to MACC to invite one of these pups — or any other MACC dogs — into your family, let me know. I’d love to sponsor your adoption.

Metro Animal Care and Control is located at 5125 Harding Place in Nashville, and adoption hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, and Friday to Saturday; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday.
