My story

***STL Foster Needed***

Blaze, 4yrs, Male, Staffie mix, Black with white, 50lbs

Blaze is a sweet boy he knows you and is often aloof around strangers. Blaze was adopted from us back in 2014 when he was just 4 months old. He lived happily with his family and even welcomed their new baby into the home the following year. Unfortunately, the child was diagnosed with autism and the energy level and sound made Blaze very uncomfortable in his home. He started hiding on a regular basis, so for safety concerns for all involved he came back to rescue.

Blaze was an only dog in the home and after his adoption did not socialize with other dogs, it is still unclear if he is willing to accept other dogs. Though dogs he has become familiar with he will wag his tail and play bow at the kennel and through the fence. Once there is direct contact, he loses his confidence and shuts down and sometimes acts defensive. So we are still working on his confidence building around other dogs. He has not been cat tested.

Due to his experience is his past home we feel it is best for Blaze to not be placed in a home with young children.

Blaze can be shy of new people, but once he warms up he is an absolute love. He loves hanging out with his humans and doing whatever they are doing.

Blaze is crate trained and has good house manners.

We are also looking for a foster home that would be able to further work with Blaze while he awaits his forever home. The foster home would have to have the ability to keep him separate from the other animals in the home and follow instructions given b y the rescue for training and socialization.

Foster or adopter must be local to the Saint Charles County, MO metro area.

Blaze's adoption fee is $200.00 and he is fully vetted. Interested adopters or foster must submit an application through our website to be considered.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

• All of our dogs are in separate foster homes; therefore it is not possible to come visit them all at once. • You must be 21 years of age to adopt • An adoption application must first be completed on our website before we will contact you about the possible adoption of any dog. If the adoption application is not completed in its entirety it will not be approved and no contact will be made. • All general questions will be responded to via email • Please understand that all our representatives are volunteers and may not be able to get in touch with you immediately. Please allow up to five days for us to get in contact with you. Emails and phone calls will only slow down the adoption process. To speed up the adoption process please contact your Veterinarian and give them permission to release information to us. o All dogs and cats in the home must be spayed or neutered and up to date on vaccinations and have annual visits at their Veterinarian. • After initial approval of your application a representative will contact you for a phone interview. • After the phone interview we will schedule a home visit. Please note it is not always possible to bring the dog with on a home visit. o A home visit is required of all adoptions. o During the home visit all people residing at the residence must be present. o You must allow the representative into all areas of the property. This includes all bedrooms, the basement and any outdoor buildings. If there are any areas our representative are not allowed access to the application will be denied. • After the home visit and application have been approved, we will make an appointment for you to meet the dog you would like to adopt. If all goes well we will then complete the adoption process. • We DO NOT transport our dogs. Our animals are local to the Saint Louis metro area only adoptions, unless otherwise noted. o In circumstances that we have to travel more than 50 miles to perform a home visit a fee may be assessed Everything we do is in the best interest of our dogs; they are our number one priority. There will be no exceptions to our adoption guidelines. We will only adopt a dog to a home that is a good fit for that dog. So please understand we may not approve your application for one dog, but may approve it for another. We reserve the right to deny any application at any point in the adoption process. The adoption fees for each dog can vary and is based on the accumulated expenses (Vet bills, shelter fees, pull fees) and a nominal adoption fee to cover our administrative expenses.
