NEW DOGS FOR ADOPTION
This is Oliver. Oliver has been with us for a very long time because he is a shy dog. He came to us completely feral but has come a very long way. He is between 2&3 years old and has been neutered. He enjoys getting kisses and curling up next to us to watch television. He generally gets along well with other dogs (but prefers females to males) and doesn't mind cats. Oliver needs a home that understands the needs of a shy dog and who is going to keep giving him encouragement and love while he learns to trust. He is not going to be a dog you put a lead on and walk. Rather, he would do best in a home with a fenced in yard so that he can run free. If you can't resist this solid low rider with a funny face, please consider submitting an application for Oliver.
This 5-month old hound mix is full of energy. Minnie is very smart and knows sit, stay and down, but she is working on impulse control. This wiggle worm just finds it very hard to sit still when she's happy and she is happy most of the time.
This JRT/heeler mix is 5 months old. He is very smart, loves to learn and is working on housebreaking. He already knows how to sit, stay and is working on "down".
Frankie is a 5-month old lab/retriever mix. He's a serious little guy but loves hugs and kisses. He enjoys learning and sits to attention when the clicker comes out. He already has sit and stay learned and is working on down. He is working on housebreaking.
Shy dog alert: Archie has been with us a couple of years. He arrived completely feral and has come a very long way in terms of accepting direct attention. Archie does love to be pet, scratched and even gives kisses. It just takes him a very long time to warm up. He is a lab mix, 2-3 years old and neutered. He is going to need a home that understands shy dogs and will accept that Archie needs love on his own terms.
This is a sad tale about a misunderstood breed. My contact in MO received a call from a woman out in the country that she found two pittie puppies sleeping on a discarded sofa. They had been surviving on scraps. The brothers had obviously been abandoned. Because people in the area are biased against pitties, my rescue partner quickly took them in, fearing they would likely be shot if discovered. Local rescues won't take in pitties where she lives, and the larger shelters can't adopt them out. So she asked me to please help. This loverboy is a sweetheart. He gets along with dogs and cats and even lets the kittens beat him up. He is initially shy, but he loves to play and, once comfortable, comes out of his shell. He needs someone who understands all of the talk about pitbulls being an inherently dangerous breed is nonsense and loves the breed for all of the good qualities they have.

We do reserve the right to refuse adoption. If your application for the adoption of a pet is not approved, we will do our best to explain the reason(s). Denial is not a rejection of you as a person; it is a refusal to place a pet in a situation that we do not feel is a good match or does not meet our policies.
