Story
Priscilla is a beautiful 7 year old half lab half boxer. She has a lab head and boxer body. Her parents were both wonderful smart gentle dogs. Priss is very smart, minds well and is loyal and a wonderful watch dog. She loves the outdoors and loves to play fetch. She is old enough that she is not wild in the house. She is house trained but you have to let her out fifteen mns after she eats. She is good with kids and adults. She would do well in a country setting or large yard. She does not run off but stays close to home.She has lived her whole life with two-sister dogs and each went with separated parents who could only have one dog. Shes a lovely loving dog. She needs a family with room to run an play with.

Story
This guy is asking you please to take a Chance on fur-ever love! Chance is a 10 + yr. old male Golden Retriever mix. He has a medium energy level, so he will need a moderate amount of daily activity. He is loose and wiggly. He comes when called, and stays close for cuddles and kisses. Chance walks well on a leash with no pulling. He is food motivated and knows the command sit. He gets along with other dogs and is indifferent towards cats in the shelter environment. Dogs are generally tested with dogs of their own size; and dog meets with the resident dogs are always encouraged. Our cat test should be used as a general-purpose screening only to rule out overt aggression; we always recommend caution when introducing dogs to cats in the home. Recommendation on suitability of placement with children by their ages is based on behavioral observations including energy level and response to body handling. We never recommend leaving young children unsupervised with dogs, and we cannot guarantee the behavior of dogs with children, other pets, or cats. Behavior evaluations should be considered as a snapshot of the behavior of the dog at this point in time; JHS believes all dog families need to be prepared to invest time and energy into training as well as provide common sense management of their new dog. We always encourage family to do some research on the breeds or mixes of breeds prior to adoption as many can have some unique characteristics that may or may not fit into their families. Always remember that the majority of dogs at our shelter have been exposed to or may have kennel cough. Kennel cough is contagious to other dogs, please talk to your vet if you have any questions about kennel cough prior to adoption. Please ask your adoption counselor at time of adoption if you have any unanswered questions regarding illnesses and treatments of the path that you are adopting. For more information about this dog or any others at our Shelter, please visit www.joplinhumane.org. We are the Joplin Humane Society in Joplin, Missouri. 417-623-3642. I AM SPONSORED! Thank you Rod Neuhalfen for sponsoring me!
