Smurf is a 5-year-old 50 lb. German Shepard mix. He is a very sweet and loving dog but had a hard start to life, which has left him weary of moving too fast when meeting new humans. It takes Smurf a few days to warm up to new people, but once he trusts you, all he wants to do is cuddle, play and be with you. He is great in the house, fully potty trained, crate trained, and loves to play fetch and learn. He is smart, loyal and loves other dogs. His favorite time of day is when he gets to go on walks, and he would make an excellent running partner or agility dog. Smurf is currently in training to help him feel more confident around new people and needs an adopter who will continue to work with him. Smurf is good with dogs but would do best in a house without any cats or small children.

KIDS: Yes, prefers older

About Unleashed Pet Rescue & Adoption

About Our Shelter...

Unleashed Pet Rescue and Adoption (UPRA) was founded in 2011. Two independent rescuers in St. Joseph, Missouri had been rescuing dogs from local shelters and owner surrenders for several years, and had grown a tremendous passion for saving lives, especially the bully breeds in need.

Danielle Reno had been working hand in hand with several shelters in her local area, such as Atchison, Kansas City, St. Joseph, and Mission KS to save lives and work towards finding homes for pets in need of fur-ever homes, while Rachel Kovac was just a few miles away in the same city doing the same exact thing, as well as running several training programs for pets and humans (Prison Pup Program) and branching her rescue work out nation-wide. Eventually, these two young ladies crossed paths, and decided that they would make a great team together.

So, they officially became a licensed non-profit rescue together and continue their fight in saving the lives of homeless pets and striving to improve the image of bully breeds in society. We pull from high-kill shelters and often are at capacity at both our shelter and through our foster program, so our need for fosters and adopters, as well as donations, is always at very high demand to continue doing what we do. Thank you in advance for your support!
