Story
Stanley is a sweet, loyal and loving 3 year old, German Shepherd mix. Neutered, up to date on all vaccines, house trained, great on a leash, crate trained and trained to use an electric fence. Loves to swim. Unfortunately, we need to re-home him due to his dislike for our other dog causing too much conflict in our home. We are heartbroken but know he would be great in a home with no dogs or cats. Loves people of all ages. Has extra large dog crate that will go with him.

Story
Dug came to us about a month ago. He was on the list to be euthanized (no fault of his own, just an overcrowded shelter). We worked with a rescue that transports dogs at kill shelters to bring him from Cali all the way to our home, just outside of STL. Dug made the trip and arrived in the middle of the night. He was a bit anxious at first, but became attached to my hip in less than a day. My husband and I slowly began the process of introductions to our other pets (2 dogs and 2 cats). The intros with the dogs went well over time, but we found that Dug was a little too interested in the cats. We came to find even after many controlled introductions that Dug should probably be in a home without cats. So, we made the very heartbreaking decision to find him a new home to where he could be comfortable. Dug is extremely loving, always happy to see us, and would make the best dog in a home without cats.

Story
Stormy is a 4 1/2 year old sweetheart. She is great with kids and cats and loves walks and playtime. She has lived with us for 4 years but we recently moved to a smaller home with no yard and she has energy we can't expend. Her and our senior dog had occassions where they would get into it around food but generally get along fine, and Stormy is always the more passive one of the two.
