It’s the holidays! The time of year for families to gather together to celebrate traditions, share old memories, and make new ones. This year, as you surround yourself with family and friends, both two-legged and four-legged alike, remember there are millions of dogs in shelters, patiently waiting for a family of their own. For some, this won’t be their first, second, or even their EIGHTH Christmas without a family of their own.

It’s our Christmas wish that every dog in rescue would find a home for the holidays, so we’ve selected 12 special dogs from around the country that have been overlooked time and time again. Some are senior dogs, some have special needs, and some are passed over for reasons we simply can’t understand – but, they all deserve to spend the holidays with a family of their own.

We’re calling this the 12 Dogs of Christmas! The Dogington Post along with our friends at Halo® Purely for Pets® have joined forces to introduce you to 12 needy dogs in hopes that they’ll finally get noticed…and maybe get a home for the holidays!

Meet Kermit!

Kermit’s Story:

12 dogs of christmasKermit the Dog here! I’d love to tell you a little about myself and see if we’d be a good match. First of all, I love affection! Belly rubs and head scratches, I’m all for it. I’m a sweet guy and I’ll give you lovin’ right back! Secondly, I’m insanely handsome, but I know you noticed that.

I’m just a big goofball that loves to play. I need a yard, so make sure it’s got a good fence! Sometimes those squirrels can just be too enticing and tempt me to get out. I can run super fast around the yard! Give me twenty minutes and I’ll wear myself out. After that I’m good to lie on my bed and nap!

I’m a big dude at 70 pounds and am in the prime of my life at only five years old! I’ll need a family that’s willing to keep up my training in the ways of obedience and a family that’s willing to be active with me. I’d do best with a dog my size or larger. Or even better, I’d love to be your one and only. I can’t WAIT to meet you and become part of your family forever! Get over here already!


Dislikes: Small animals – they’re just too enticing!

Kermit’s Perfect Family:
Kermit’s perfect family will be fun-loving and active and will keep an eye on him while he’s outside.

Kermit will soon face another Christmas without a family all his own.

Does Kermit seem like the perfect fit for your family? Here’s how to begin the adoption process:

Anyone that is interested in adopting Kermit should first visit to check out their adoption requirements. Then, fill out an adoption application for Kermit! Or, for additional questions about Kermit or the adoption process, email [email protected]!

Thanks to a special guardian angel, Kermit’s adoption fee has been reduced to $75. A home check will be required and potential adopters should be within 1-hour of Dallas.

Will Kermit finally find his forever with you?
