*** Hi&#44 Iandamp;#39;ve got a video starring ME for you to watch! Click through my pictures&#44 and youandamp;#39;ll find it there! ***andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;Do you ever wish you could move the clock forward and see what your future holds? I want to be done with this waiting game and find my way into the center of my new family because I need to make someone happy again. Hi&#44 Iandamp;#39;m Maya&#44 and Iandamp;#39;m a stunningly beautiful girl on the outside - with a heart of gold on the inside. Iandamp;#39;m friendly&#44 well mannered&#44 kind hearted&#44 respectful and loving. I am also quite the energetic&#44 active senior! I was left behind at my former home by the humans who were once my family. They moved away and totally forgot about me. Thankfully&#44 Great Plains HERO Team rescued me and whisked me off to the shelter in the hopes that my forever family would find me here.andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;I can be shy and a little nervous around all the noise and chaos that sometimes can overtake an animal shelter. Iandamp;#39;m potty trained and crate trained&#44 and I walked right into a crate and settled down for a nap in a staff memberandamp;#39;s office. Even though I have my shy side&#44 if given the chance&#44 after a few minutes I transform into an attention seeking&#44 very affectionate&#44 sweet and happy girl. The dog behaviorists here say that I display all the mannerisms of a well trained dog. I know how to play with toys&#44 and I walk at a nice pace when Iandamp;#39;m out on leash. I do get along with other dogs&#44 and thatandamp;#39;s always a plus when you humans are looking for a dog to adopt. I would appreciate a home without any small and furries. I am much too interested in them! andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;I did spend about a month in a foster home&#44 and you wanna know how my foster family described me? They said Iandamp;#39;m P-E-R-F-E-C-T&#44 thatandamp;#39;s how! I had no struggles in the home whatsoever&#44 and they had a shorter fence in the back yard with neighborsandamp;#39; dogs out a lot&#44 and I paid them no mind. andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;I have had so many meet and greets&#44 and yet no one ever chooses me. Other dogs are chosen&#44 and Iandamp;#39;m left behind....again and again. All my friends say I am doing nothing wrong. They try to make me feel better by saying that Iandamp;#39;m waiting for the most special home of them all. I want to believe it. Canandamp;#39;t someone walk through that shelter door&#44 meet me&#44 and say andamp;quot;Maya&#44 you will be mine!andamp;quot; I donandamp;#39;t wanna be the bridesmaid for the rest of my life. The stress of shelter life can be very hard on all the dogs here&#44 but Iandamp;#39;m trying so hard to get through this. Every day I wait and hope for you to find me. Because I know that andamp;quot;thereandamp;#39;s no place like homeandamp;quot;. andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;Make me a bride&#44 ok?andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;Love from Mayaandlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;

** Iandamp;#39;m offsite at Puppies for Parole! If youandamp;#39;re interested in adopting me&#44 please contact melissa.mauch@doc.mo.gov **andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;*** I have a new video starring ME for you to watch! Click through my pictures&#44 and youandamp;#39;ll find it there! ***andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;Hi. Iandamp;#39;m Jimmy and I LOVE food. If you ever wonder how to get a dog to do what you ask every time&#44 just give him a treat he cannot resist. This is the secret way to my heart. Whether itandamp;#39;s a walk or time to show you my obedience skills&#44 just show me a treat&#44 and Iandamp;#39;m a perfect little man. PLUS&#44 I am a huge lover and LOVE to cuddle with people.andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;I am looking for a home and a family who can show me what stability and routine look like. I am housetrained and kennel trained. I can dig a home with another dog&#44 as long as they like to play with me. I believe meeting all your kiddos at the shelter would be a good idea to make sure our vibes matched each other. I do also prefer a home with kids older than 5 years old. Youngsters might make me nervous as Iandamp;#39;m acclimating to my new life. I am looking for a home and a family that can give me time and space to decompress and find my place in this world. Do you have time to embark on a journey with a boy dog who is just starting his?andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;I sure hope so!!! Donandamp;#39;t delay and come meet me.andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;All my love and cuddles&#44andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;Jimmy

*** I have a video starring ME for you to watch! Click through my pictures&#44 and youandamp;#39;ll find it there! ***andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;Iandamp;#39;m such a good listener that I think I could get paid to be a therapist for you humans. My name is Sokka&#44 and Iandamp;#39;m a super handsome&#44 young&#44 shy guy who is searching for his forever. I was so nervous when I first arrived here&#44 I just wanted to disappear. Iandamp;#39;m working on my confidence&#44 though&#44 and with each passing hour&#44 I feel better and more self-assured. andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;I can be wiggly and silly&#44 too; even though Iandamp;#39;m timid. Iandamp;#39;m friendly&#44 too. I cautiously explore the shelter and the environment&#44 and honestly&#44 once I get acclimated&#44 I think youandamp;#39;ll see even more andamp;quot;wonderfulnessandamp;quot; from me. I know how to do a andamp;quot;sitandamp;quot; and andamp;quot;shakeandamp;quot;. Iandamp;#39;m working on my leash skills&#44 if you get a walk accomplished each and every day&#44 you pretty much know what youandamp;#39;re doing out there&#44 right? Practice makes perfect. andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;Iandamp;#39;m searching for a love of a lifetime family. I know I will make a great dog&#44 one that you can depend on. I need for you to find me here. I just wanna go home. andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;Love from Sokka

Iandamp;#39;m Laci&#44 the dynamo dog with enough spunk to light up the whole neighborhood! Lifeandamp;#39;s too short to be anything but bold&#44 and let me tell you&#44 Iandamp;#39;m living proof of that. I do need to meet all kids before going home to make sure there is enough room for both of our personalities!andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;From the moment I burst into this world&#44 I knew I was destined for greatness. Iandamp;#39;ve got energy for days and a personality thatandamp;#39;s larger than life.

*** Hi&#44 Iandamp;#39;ve got a sweet little video for you to watch! Please click through my pictures&#44 and youandamp;#39;ll find it there! ***andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;Have you ever been afraid? Wanting so much to be brave and courageous&#44 but finding yourself wanting to hide sometimes when things seem scary? My name is Kestrel&#44 and Iandamp;#39;m that guy. While life doesnandamp;#39;t always come easy for me&#44 I am growing up and learning more through everyday experiences. I am learning that I donandamp;#39;t have to be afraid&#44 and life can be sweet and full of love.andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;I was adopted out awhile back&#44 but I was returned because of my shyness and insecurity. In my defense&#44 I tried my hardest to relax and enjoy my home and family. But in the end&#44 it was probably better that I was returned to the shelter. I can be especially nervous and unsure around men. I do find that the men who work at Great Plains are super&#44 and I can relax around them. Iandamp;#39;m an old soul&#44 a sensitive young boy who needs a family that will understand me. andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;Iandamp;#39;ve been blessed by having time in a foster home&#44 and Iandamp;#39;ll tell you what&#44 I have learned a lot about living life feeling safe and secure. And Great Plains has learned a lot about me. I lived with two dogs&#44 and we all got along just great. There were also a bunch of cats in this house&#44 and I was happy around all of them. Iandamp;#39;m kennel trained&#44 and Iandamp;#39;m house trained. And&#44 Iandamp;#39;m even good on leash. Iandamp;#39;m the perfect size&#44 and Iandamp;#39;m a handsome little devil too&#44 if I do say so myself.andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;My friends have learned that I donandamp;#39;t really like raised voices with undertones of harshness. If things get loud&#44 I get scared&#44 I will start to tremble&#44 and I will try to find a good place to hide. My preferred method of communication&#44 you ask? Well&#44 I LOVE baby talk. Speak to me in soft&#44 sweet and gentle tones&#44 and I simply swoon Iandamp;#39;m so happy. I guess this goes back to my saying I think of myself as a sensitive soul. andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;Apparently&#44 I was originally brought to the shelter after animal control found my sibling and me wandering close to a local park. At first we were scared&#44 but I started to open up to the staff and volunteers who were patient and willing to give me time to warm up. They found out I have an extremely sweet and cuddly side once I let my guard down&#44 and now I get cuddles from EVERYONE. I also LOVE to spend time with other dogs at the shelter. They help me to feel more confident and willing to try new things. Do you have a dog at home that would like a friend like me? As for kids&#44 I do like kids&#44 and I even lived with one! I would love to meet yours and see if we would get along.andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;Do you think you could be my happily ever after?andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;Love from Kestrelandlt;br/andgt;

Hello everyone! I am Stan. andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;I am known for having by far the wiggliest body language of any dog at Great Plains. All you have to do is look at me&#44 and my body will shimmy and shake in the most obviously friendly way. andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;Iandamp;#39;m a big&#44 bouncy boy with a naturally friendly disposition. I will spread happiness and joy wherever I go. andlt;br/andgt;andlt;br/andgt;Iandamp;#39;ve lived with kids. I have all the makings of a family dog. Or a companion for someone needing a pal. Really&#44 I could do a lot of different things. I am versatile. Show me a home&#44 and I will fit into it. as long as that home is OK with me bouncing and wiggling. These things are in my nature......
