Story
Meet Kage, the ultimate good boy who's just so darn cute! This gentleman is a pro at house living, fully potty trained, and a master at walking on a leash and harness. He's a social butterfly, getting along famously with other dogs and loving those backyard playdates with his pals. Kage is a stunning mix of Lab and Border Collie, the perfect blend of intelligence and family-friendliness. He's just the right size, like a mini Lab or a slightly larger Border Collie. When you find two fantastic things that go together like peanut butter and jelly, you celebrate! Kage is that winning combo, and now you can celebrate by making him a cherished member of your family. His temperament is pure gold - sweet as honey with everyone he meets. Now, here's the scoop: Kage is a special needs pup, and he's looking for someone who can be with him about 90 percent of the time. Storms, rain, and loud noises send him into severe panic attacks, and he's been known to chew through walls when anxiety strikes. Crates aren't his jam because of past storm-related trauma. He's also dealing with seizures, so he's on medication for that. Kage would thrive in a local adoption, and he's best as a single dog with no cats or small animals around. He's a wonderful companion for older kids, and he loves nothing more than cuddles and long walks. He's got the whole house training thing down too. His foster mom adores him and has prepared him for his forever family as best she can. Now, the ball is in your court. Remember, when you adopt Kage, you're not just bringing home a good boy; you're giving him the loving, understanding home he deserves. Don't shop, adopt, because Kage's life depends on it! Local adoption fee is $200 (in TX) Out of state adoption fee is $400 (includes transport to your area - $50 Temporary Fuel Charge will be added)

Story
Tessie is a 5 year old petite 45lb brindle mix looking for a forever home. She was adopted out as a puppy and lived with cats, kids and other dogs in the past. She can be selective about her dog friends so would need a meet and two week trial run to ensure compatibility - she tends to do better with male doggos / ones that don't get into her business, but she's a wonderful listener so that helps as well. She will take a little bit of time to adjust, but with the right patient owner she will be a great addition. She is a perfect leash walker and loves car rides! Tessie's adoption fee is $250 and she's fully vetted / ready to meet people any time. If interested in meeting this gorgeous girl, please apply at www.foreverhomedogs.org and we will reach out!All adoptions are $300 per dog for puppies under 1 year, $250 for adults 1 - 9 years old and $150 for senior dogs which include spay/neuter, micro-chipped and up-to-date on required shots. Senior dogs, at our discretion, are adopted out at $150 per dog because we know they will have less time with your family and may eventually have more needs as they get older. But we feel these dogs deserve to live out the rest of their lives as part of a loving family.

Story
Meet Angus! He is a super sweet boy that came to our shelter as a stray and was never reclaimed by his family. Don't let his breed dissuade you! He is pretty calm despite being a Border Collie mix. He recently came back from the vet after his neuter and they had nothing but positive things to say about this boy! He can entertain himself by tossing and chasing toys around. He is very clean in his kennel, does not bark much and does well with kids, dogs and cats. If you're interested in meeting him he can be found at the Clarke County Animal Shelter in Osceola, IA. You won't regret coming to meet him!

Story
Whiskey is new to us and we believe she was dumped at an acreage in Greene County. No one claimed her, so this sweetheart is ours to adopt out. She can be shy, but love tummy rubs!! She VERY active, as per her breed and will do best in a home where she gets daily exercise and lots of it. She's very smart and with proper training, she may be a wonderful companion in dog games - she has springs in her legs (the girl can jump!!) Gorgeous girl - come check her out!

These pups are in West Des Moines, Iowa too!

Story
Comes with equipment to help ensure comfortable rehoming. Opal wants to be by your side at all times and loves to snuggle. I adopted her and her brother around 5 years ago as a package deal. They have been great pets, but redirect anxiety on each other which gets amplified if another dog is barking at them. I’m giving Opal up because they had an incident where a sitter let them out into the neighborhood for a couple hours unsupervised and they got into a scuffle with another dog that ended with the other owner getting bit when he reached into the dog fight. Because of this I want to split Opal and her brother up so that they won’t hype each other up and can each live more relaxed lives. Opal reacts to other dogs with whining and barking. Other than that she is excellent with people. I’ve had her behavior evaluated and she is good with men and women and has been around kids. She is a great inside dog that will shower you with love. She also loves treat training.
