My story

Duke, 6yrs, Male, Cane Corso, Brindle, 150#

Duke is an amazing boy, but he is all Corso. Only homes with guardian breed experience will be considered for adoption. True to his breed, He is protective of his home and people. Loyal to a fault, he loves his humans. Though he loves kids, due to some resource guarding behavior, he needs a home without young children.

Duke is very good on his basic obedience and he is crate trained. He does well with other even temperament dogs and is generally pretty easy going guy. He would be best in a home with no small dogs or cats.

His adoptive home must have a 6 foot privacy fence, to keep him safe. And must be (within 50 miles) local to the Saint Louis metropolitan area.

Duke's adoption donation is $450.00 and he is up to date and fully vetted.

Interested adopters must submit an adoption 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.
