I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
This incredibly handsome boy is Frisbee. He's very playful, affectionate and has a gorgeous face with an adorable pink heart-shaped nose. He's housetrained & crate trained and he likes sleeping in his crate. He gets along very well with other dogs and has great doggie social skills. Even dogs who usually don't like other dogs end up having fun and playing with this handsome boy! He loves children and gets along with with his foster family's cats, but sometimes his energy can be a bit much for the cats. Frisbee is an affectionate boy who is very sweet and enjoys cuddling. He enjoys attention and wants nothing more than to be loved. He has the sweetest morning routine - as soon as he sees that someone is up, he gets out of his crate and goes over to them & gives them morning kisses. It's a wonderful way to start the day! He's very happy to lay near you when he's worn out from a day of play and if he's feeling frisky, he'll roll over on his back for a belly rub. And this beautiful boy loves belly rubs! Frisbee is a playful guy with a lot of energy and true to his name, he loves to fetch. He would be happiest in a home where he would get a lot of play time. He's very smart and a quick learner. He knows how to sit and does it eagerly when it's time to put on his harness and go for a walk, which he really enjoys. He also knows 'lay down' and is working on 'off' & 'stay.' He attended obedience school to learn some good doggie manners and he's very good at crate commands and he comes when you call him. His foster family calls him Friz sometimes and he answers to that, also. He's so smart! It also helps that he's very food motivated and he loves little ProTrain treats. He's a curious boy and when he sees something unusual going on during his walk, he'll stop for a second and watch. He has very expressive ears and they perk up and swivel when he's interested in something. Frisbee loves going for car rides and he looks so adorable with his ears flapping in the wind! This handsome boy has a silly side that's fun to watch. He's very good at entertaining himself and when nobody will play with him, he likes to roll on to his back and flip his toys in the air. It's so funny to see this big boy trying to get attention. Frisbee is going to bring a lot of joy, laughter and love to his forever home and he's going to be a wonderful pet!

Rescue Group Info...
Gateway Pet Guardians is dedicated to rescuing homeless pets in the St. Louis area, getting them great veterinary care, and finding them forever homes. We are currently a virtual shelter with all of our pets waiting for adoption in the care of volunteer foster families, however we are working toward a facility.
Gateway Pet Guardians is a 501c(3) tax-exempt organization. Donations are always greatly appreciated and are used to provide veterinary care for our foster pets, some of whom have been badly injured by automobile accidents, cruelty, neglect, or life on the street.
Follow us on Facebook and join our mailing list to be updated about adoption events.
Once you find an animal that you are interested in, email us and we will send your information to the foster family. You will fill out an adoption application and provide us with references. Once we have reviewed the application and contacted your references, we set up a home visit. Adoption fees are $150 for adult dogs and $195 for puppies. This fee includes shots, a spay/neuter and microchipping, as well as any other treatment the animal may have needed upon being rescued from the streets.
PJ Hightower started feeding dogs in East St. Louis, a very impoverished neighborhood in Illinois, in 1995 on her way to her sister's house. She began going on a regular basis from there and has not missed one single day since 2001. The dogs rely on PJ, waiting for her car every morning. They come running at its sound and most come straight up to her car door as she stops. She not only feeds, but medicates, domesticates and rescues when we have a home that will take one in.
A small group of people decided to form Gateway Pet Guardians around PJ's efforts in 2004. Gateway is fast growing and excited about what the future holds for the stray dogs of the East side. Or hopefully lack there of.
When we pull a dog, we give it veterinary care and put it in a foster home where it can learn to live as a dog should live and be loved. We find that with our "virtual" shelter system, the dogs tend to have better outcomes in their forever homes. Although we are saving to build a shelter, we still plan to keep our dogs in foster homes as often as possible.
We are a small group of people devoted to solving the homeless dog population in East St. Louis through education/outreach and spay/neuter programs. We would love your involvement!
