Every week, we showcase a shelter dog from the Temple Animal Shelter in the hopes that some of these beautiful and misplaced dogs find a fur-ever home with a loving family. And when it works, man, it's worth it.

The Temple Animal Shelter was kind enough to let myself and our on-staff dog whisperer Hadley visit the shelter and meet some of the pups who are waiting for their holiday miracle. I will warn you: if you have a soft spot for dogs, this is going to be a tough video to go through.

We wanted to take all of them home.

But maybe you and your family are in the market to rescue a dog. Adopting a dog at Temple Animal Shelter costs $65 or less. Most of them are spayed/neutered and some are chipped - but not all.

The Temple Animal Shelter is located on 620 S. 31st Street, Temple, 76504.
