Look who is looking for you! Luke is a puppy packed with personality. I think he has Dachshund (look at that coat and that color) in him but, the family who gave him to us says he is a Basset Terrier. He definitely has a Terrier’s desire to play. He is a confident fellow who loves everyone. He would be a great companion for older children. Short, red and round, he wants to be a part of everything you do. He is a happy pup that so wants a family to love and entertain. He will be about 20 pounds when fully grown.

Luke has been neutered. He has had all vaccines possible to date. A rabies vaccine is due when your pup is 16 weeks old. To adopt, go to our website 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

Housetrained? Luke lives in a pen with a dog door. He knows to go out and he is the perfect age to master housetraining very quickly. Just remember, your dog can’t be any more housetrained than you are. A pup needs you to open the door. For your pup to be successful: use a crate during transition, 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.

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 from 12:00 to 4:00.

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.

About the breed: A lively and sweet natured creature, the Dachshund is a dog that makes a loyal and devoted pet for the right owner. Well suited to both inexperienced and experienced dog owners, they are adaptable, intelligent, and sociable. The Dachshund is not the right choice for those with little time to dedicate to a pet, as they do need love, attention, and companionship. Training should not prove too much of a challenge, as the Dachshund is quick to learn, eager to please, and responsive. However, he can have a very possessive streak when it comes to his belongings and food. The Dachshund has a great sense of humor, and can be a very entertaining and cheerful pet to have around. The sharp bark of these dogs makes them effective watchdogs. He tends to get along well with older, gentler kids. The Dachshund loves to be around other Dachsies, and with early socialization should get along fine with other pets.

The Basset Hound is sweet, gentle, devoted, peaceful and naturally well-behaved. They fit into family life well. Theirtemperament should always be friendly with never an indication of sharpness or viciousness. They are mild but not timid; very affectionate with its master and friendly with children. It is incapable of biting, but it may be a bit stubborn. They like to do tricks for food. It has a deep musical bark. House train with gentle patient training and positive reinforcement. With proper training, they are obedient, but when they pick up an interesting smell, it's sometimes hard to get their attention.

The Rat Terrier is an intelligent, alert and loving dog. Very inquisitive and lively. This affectionate dog makes an excellent companion for anyone, especially the elderly. They are good with children especially if they are raised with them from puppyhood. They are fairly territorial, stubborn, and for the most part friendly with strangers. Rat Terriers make good watchdogs. This hardy dog is used for hunting expeditions as well as terrier work. They are not good swimmers and need to be closely monitored around water. These dogs are quick and very playful and are not yappers. The temperament of these dogs ispure terrier - lively, feisty, and fearless. This breed may be slightly difficult to train. They make good farm dogs.
