Story
Did you say Paisley? Well you guessed right! This gal was also another dog that was very timid when entering the shelter. She has come a long way and her true self is finally coming to light. She is super sweet with people but she is kinda selective with what dogs she likes. (We think it could just be the shelter environment for her picky dog selection.) She never gives us problems and is a good little girl. We do think she would do best in a home with older kids just because she was very timid when she came to us. She also needs a big fenced in yard to play in because she didn't have a yard to run and play in before, she was cooped up in an apartment. Paisley is requesting her name to be the same since she has had this name as a pup. She will also require extra time to be adjusted in her new home. She really is a sweet girl that needs a family that will give her the extra love that she needs. Come meet her asap! Paisley's $200 Adoption Fee is quite inclusive. She is spayed, vaccinated-to-date, micro-chipped, wormed & current on monthly heartworm preventative. Paisley's estimated date of birth is 5/9/2021. Visit Pals-Pets.com to fill out a Pre-Adoption Questionnaire or call 636-338-1818 to schedule an appointment to meet this pet or any others here at the shelter.

He LOVES training time and would enthusiastically like to learn new tasks. Enzo is seeking an experienced border collie family who can gently and consistently guide him, and continue his training. This former stray dog needs a family without small kids. Enzo is currently in a foster home with a foster brother. He can be selective about his dog friends, or would do well as a solo dog.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.If interested in adopting, read about our Adoption Process and then complete an Adoption Application on the Mo-Kan website.   Polly is a one year old beautiful, playful border collie mix who loves everyone.  She loves to cuddle and give kisses to her human friends and can’t get enough play time with her foster brother.  She can be demanding when it comes to attention so she’ll need an active family or a canine sibling who can match her energy level and play style.  Polly is house trained, crate trained and knows basic obedience requests like sit and down.  She also has a great recall and comes willingly when she’s a little too excited or barking at a neighbor’s dog.  Polly loves kids but may be a little too enthusiastic for toddlers.  She also has a lot of puppy traits and needs an occasional reminder about what’s appropriate for chewing.  Polly Is smart and very food motivated so she’s a quick learner.  If you’re looking for a soft, cuddly, active dog who has lots of potential, Polly could be a perfect fit for you. Polly is being fostered in the Kansas City area.Click here to watch a video of Polly.Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.February 20, 2024, 10:12 am

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.If interested in adopting, read about our Adoption Process and then complete an Adoption Application on the Mo-Kan website.   Cedar is a very handsome young boy (almost 3 years-old) with a sweet, gentle demeanor. He is house trained, crate trained, and has never exhibited any destructive behaviors. Cedar loves to play with his furry foster siblings and gets along well with everyone he encounters...dogs, cats, and all people. He loves to play with toys, chase balls, and race around the yard with his foster siblings. Cedar MOST favorite thing, is to be with his human foster brother or foster mom. He is 100% a people dog, and definitely has a hint of velcro in him! If he thinks too much time has passed without an affirming look or rub behind his ears, he might jibber jabber a bit to make sure his people know he's there. But he is always so obedient and perfectly content to snooze in a soft bed nearby. He walks on leash, knows “sit, down, come, wait, and leave it”. He loves to learn and is up for any adventure with his humans!  Cedar would do well as either an only dog or a member of a family with other dogs, but he will definitely thrive with lots of human TLC.  Cedar will need a secure fenced yard. Might Cedar be your next best buddy?

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.If interested in adopting, read about our Adoption Process and then complete an Adoption Application on the Mo-Kan website.   Meet Tymber!  Tymber is a handsome four year old black and white smooth coat loving boy who has the fluffiest natural white collar encircling his sleek neck!  All four of those precious paws are white - with a few freckles here and there.  Tymber loves being loved on and petted! Tymber came to the rescue from some very difficult circumstances, where food was in short supply and where neglect was all he knew.  This sweet boy has started putting his past behind him and has really come out of his shell – although he can still be a little timid or shy in uncertain situations.  Due to the neglect, he endured, he is still somewhat submissive, but he is learning to trust and to enjoy the love he is given.  Food is understandably very important to Tymber given his almost starved condition.  He hasn’t shown himself to be greedy and is learning to wait patiently for his food and treats. Tymber is super quick to learn new things and runs as fast as the wind! His energy level is in the moderate range, but he also likes to just kick back and relax.  He is blessed with an innate Border Collie intelligence that will lend itself well to additional training.  Tymber thrives on positive reinforcement and is very food motivated!  Tymber has learned that his kennel is a safe place to be and to sleep – but he also loves a soft bed! Tymber currently stays in his kennel when foster mom and dad are gone. He is housebroken and will go to the door when he needs to go outside. He will also go to the door when he wants to go outside and hang out!   Tymber is actively learning commands and is quite eager to please.  In a very short time, he has learned the commands: sit, down, come, wait, kennel up, that’ll do, leave it, and fetch.  Tymber is a happy boy who loves to play with his foster brother (6 yr old Border Collie) and foster sister (7 yr old Border Collie mix). Tymber would love to have another canine companion to play with in his new home. Have we said Tymber loves to play!!!  Tymber loves all things called TOY!  Stuffed, unstuffed, rubber, squeaky, balls – he loves them all. Tymber is friendly to everyone he has met so far!  The ladies at the groomer couldn’t get enough of this sweet boy!  He loves to be outside and even loves to sunbathe!  He rides well in the car and seems to enjoy going for rides in the truck. Tymber has some subtle herding instincts but will stop with positive correction. Tymber will need a fenced yard.  We are working on upping our leash walking game with gentle reminders and lots of positive reinforcement. Does Tymber sound like the perfect addition to your family? Complete an adoption application for the opportunity to meet this wonderful boy! He is being fostered in Ok.Click here to watch a video of Tymber.Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.February 20, 2024, 10:12 am

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.If interested in adopting, read about our Adoption Process and then complete an Adoption Application on the Mo-Kan website.   See Puffin's updated bio!Puffin is one of 6 puppies that were left in a box along a creek in rural Oklahoma in July 2023.  They were taken to the pound but kept outside.  Once with MoKan , they were placed in foster homes and have thrived beautifully!  As of Nov. 1,  3 of the puppies have been adopted and have adjusted well in their new homes.  There are 3 more still waiting for that perfect home.  I want to tell you about Puffin who I’ve been fostering since July.  Puffin is learning all the things that will make his transition into his future home easier for him and easier for his adopter.  Crating:  Puffin knows crate and voluntarily goes into his crate every night.  He is content with his hard bone that has peanut butter in it.  He sleeps all night and his crate is clean in the morning.  Puffin is always crated when we are not home.   Puffin also respects a barrier.  He is used to having a baby gate up if small children are over and he is certainly capable of jumping over it BUT, he has never tried.  Housetraining:  Puffin is almost completely housetrained although he is not left unsupervised for more than a few minutes.  He will walk to the door when he has to potty and he always potties almost immediately when he goes outside.  He will also potty on leash walks. Leash walks:  Puffin goes on 2 one mile leash walks in our neighborhood every day.  He sees other dogs behind invisible and physical fences.  He is used to seeing squirrel and deer and children on bikes and skateboards and cars going by.   Puffin is a herder and he would love to run after the kids and the wildlife but he is becoming more controlled with each walk we take.  I intentionally let Puffin play hard before we go on walks.  Leash walks alone will not be enough mental and physical exercise for Puffin (and for most border collies).  Recall:  We have been working hard on Puffin with recall because we do not have a fence.  We use a long leash and treats.  Puffin is smart.  He is independent, but  he is also a people dog, likes treats and loves his home base and his companion dogs.  All of this works to our favor in training Puffin with “come”.   He is responding beautifully with his continued training in this area.   Puffin will need a fence in his adoptive home.  Socializing:  Puffin lives with an active 5 yo male aussie and a 10 yo female bc mix.   The aussie is his mentor and the BC is his disciplinarian.   Puffin would love to have another active dog in his new home.  Puffin started to go to the local dog park at their quieter times for the past 3 weeks.  He needs some work on his entry into the dog park as he tends to get too excited as he goes through the initial gate.  Once inside,  Puffin has gained confidence and skill in meeting other dogs and allowing other dogs to sniff him.  Now , he seeks out other dogs that like to be chased.  Puffin prefers to be the chaser rather than the chasee.  (another herding quality!)  Puffin is friendly to just about every person he meets including small kids.  He interacts regularly with a 15 month old, 2 year old and 4 year old child.   He often has kids stop by to play with him.  Puffin is working on “settle” and “gentle”.  He can get a little too enthusiastic with high energy children.  He has made huge improvements in soft bite and jumping  up though this too is a work in progress.  Puffin was has seen a cat each time we went to the vet hospital and did not show prey drive toward the cat.  I believe that Puffin will do fine with a dog savvy cat.  Commands:  Puffin has been introduced to helpful commands like “sit”, “wait”, “kennel”, “no”, “walk nice”, and “come”.    If you are thinking about Puffin (and I don’t know why you wouldn’t be thinking about Puffin), you need to be smarter than him and that is pretty smart.  As I mentioned,  treats are golden with Puffin.  If you think you might be a good home for Puffin,  complete an application to meet him.  Please know that Puffin needs an active home with owners who love to interact with their dog.  Puffin would not be a good dog for someone who is a couch potato or leads a sedentary life or just has too much happening that can’t involve a dog.   Puffin wants to see the world and he’d like to have a partner to do that with.  He will indeed be someone’s best friend.  It could be YOU! Puffin is being fostered in the Kansas City area.Click here to watch a video of Puffin.Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.February 20, 2024, 10:12 am
