Plenty of my friends are looking

I am already spayed and up to date with shots.
Yes, we are a no-kill shelter but our dogs don’t live in a no–die world. We are in an impoverish part of the state where dogs wait for a place in our shelter. They wait for food, care, and a safe place to be. They wait and hope that we will have a place for them before it is too late. Every dog we place enables us to save another life. This dog and a dog that you will never meet hope that this is the one for you.
Opal, Olivia, Otto and Oliver… these babies came to us almost hairless. They were fleas infested, stressed and suffering from a skin condition. You can see their arrival photos on our Facebook page. A good flea bath, proper meds, great food – they began to improve immediately. Sweet, social, loving and on their way to being big dogs, Mom was a Husky Lab mix, Dad – a Great Pyrenees. The pups are doing great . Their ongoing treatment is a specific collar that needs to be replaced every three months. They will have great coats by winter… not Pyrenees long but they will have lovely thick, coats. These pups have been spay/neutered; all vaccines possible to date are current. If one of these pups is the one for you…

Housetrained? These pups are living in an outside pen. They know that outside is the place to go but they will need your help to learn a new routine and how to ask you to open the door. Just remember - A dog can’t be any more housetrained than you are. For your dog 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.
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 Chesterfield every Saturday – 11:00 to 5:00. We are at PetCo in St. Charles/ St. Peters at 6137 MidRiver Mall Drive on Saturday from 12:00 to 5:00.
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 longer than a week, we ask for a $50 non-refundable deposit.
About the breed: The Great Pyrenees is a capable and imposing guardian, devoted to its family, and may be somewhat wary of strangers - human or canine. They are often used to guard livestock. It is calm, well- mannered, and somewhat serious. Courageous, very loyal and obedient. Gentle and affectionate with those he loves. Devoted to family even if self-sacrifice is required. It is very gentle with its family and children. It does best with children when it is raised with them from puppyhood. It has an independent, somewhat stubborn nature. A serious worker, but very independent. Be patient when training the Great Pyrenees, as it may be slightly difficult. The Great Pyrenees is good with non-canine animals, and usually loves cats. These dogs do not reach maturity until they are about 2 years old. Dogbreedinfo.com
Huskies are gentle and playful, but willful and mischievous. This cheerful dog is very fond of his or her family. A puppy at heart, they are clever, sociable and loving, easy-going and docile. They generally have a lot of energy, especially as puppies. Good with children and friendly with strangers, they are not watchdogs, for they bark little and love everyone. Huskies are very intelligent and trainable, but they will only obey a command if they see the point. Training takes patience, consistency and an understanding of the Arctic dog character. As long as it is not too hot, Huskies make excellent jogging companions. They do not like to be left alone, so if this is the breed for you, you may want to consider having two. They are good with other pets if they are raised with them from puppyhood. Huskies are thrifty eaters and need less food than you might expect.
The Labrador Retriever is the most popular dog breed in the United States (and Canada and Australia). He's owned by millions of people! Labs are loving, people-oriented dogs. They are very loyal and loving to their families. Labs are friendly, happy-go-lucky dogs prized for their stable and reliable temperaments. Labs are good-natured and trustworthy. They're dependable and easy-going. Labs are very stable, they aren't easily upset or startled. They're eager to please you; always seeking your approval. Labs are very affectionate with their families and desire plenty of close physical contact: tummy rubs and behind the ears scratches. They thrive on human companionship and attention. They always want to be with you and will follow you around everywhere you go! They'll lie on your feet, sit on your lap, and lean against you! If you don't like being followed around and having a dog who adores you, then a Lab probably isn't for you -- because he just wants to be with you!
