Look who is looking for you! We bring 65 dogs to the St. Louis area every Saturday. If you would like to meet this dog, just let us know. We are at PetSmart in O’Fallon on the 1st and 2nd Saturdays of each month and at PetSmart in Chesterfield on the 3rd and 4th Saturday. We are often at PetCo in St. Charles /St. Peters on Mid River Mall Drive on Saturday afternoon (1:00 -3:30).

Mom is a German Shepherd; dad - a handsome Boxer with strong genes. He is apparent in every pup, even the shepherd-y ones.Mr Kodiak is darling and sweet. Friendly, social, this happy pup would love to go home. He will be about 45 to 50 pounds when fully grown with a boxer type shape and size. He has been spay/neutered. He has had the first two vaccines in the puppy series and will require two more. He will need rabies vaccine when he is 4 to 6 months old.

To adopt one of these pups, go to our website Takeafriendhome.org and click on the link to the application. Complete and send. For more information, call Deanna at 573-889-9691 or Cynthea 573-714-4232. You can email us at dogs@takeafriendhome.org.

We are a small rescue with a big mission. We took in 174 dogs in February. A 1/3 of those dogs came from high kill shelters. The others come from the many sad situations that require rescue – folks who lost their homes, road side warriors, the countless pups from un-spayed moms that fill rural areas like ours. We took in 8 such litters in February and this was one of them.

Housetrained? Too young – but with your help, your pup will quickly figure out what you want him to do. Remember – at this age, he is still a baby! Just like a 6 month old child isn’t toilet trained, your pup needs time too. For your pup to be successful: use a crate, go out with your dog, praise “right action”, and expect more of yourself than you do of your dog. Housetraining tips are in your adoption packet.

Adoption Fees and Payment Plans: We take credit cards and checks. Payments can be arranged with a credit card. As with all of our adoptions, we know it is hard to get married on a blind date... even to a wonderful pup. We will take our dog back during the first month and refund your adoption fee less $75. To hold a pup, we ask for a $50 non-refundable deposit if delivery is not made during the same week.
