My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Alexander is a handsome 7-year-old Catahoula Leopard Dog mix. We originally rescued him as a baby in 2017, and he found a wonderful home shortly after! Sadly, 5 years later, his owner's health declined and he was brought back to us. Alex was so well-loved and treated like a little prince. He is a pro at eating treats and making his people laugh. He is shy with new people and will take some time to warm up. Once he does, he is very loyal! He is house-trained and has a huge heart he's ready to share. The only thing Alexander asks for in his future home is that he be your one and only baby. He was so happy in his previous home as the only child that he craves all the attention for himself. We promise he will give you so much love back! He is missing the feeling of having a home and would love to find one again. Can you help make Alexander's dream of a home come true?

More about this shelter

The mission of the Humane Society of Southwest Missouri is to aid in the alleviation of distress and suffering of animals by operating a shelter in need of care, placing animals in suitable homes, and offering educational programs that promote animal welfare.

We receive our animals from people giving up their pets for a variety of reasons, including changes in family situations and moving. Some of our animals have been strays rescued from the streets by a kind citizen, but all of our animals are looking for permanent, loving forever homes.
