Story
Man dumped all the male puppies from a litter and we took one from a friend to help out. Under our care he has been to the vet to receive check-up, shots (list upon request), and deworming/flea and tick treatment. Crate trained. He is around children and other pets (cats and dogs) and is so good with all of them. He is a very sweet and snuggly little guy. We spent several days with my sister who has a Boston Terrier puppy and Hatchet was amazing with him. We wish we could keep him but it is not possible at this time. He needs a loving home with connection and space to explore.

Story
Cupid is a very energetic 1.5 year old pup. She is a very dominant personality and is super sweet. I originally got her from the Central Missouri Humane Society in Columbia, MO; they did not know anything about her past when she was brought it. She loves going on long walks, runs, and playing for hours on end. She does resource guard, but I have been working on fixing that and it’s a lot better than what it was when I got her. She does not get along with any other animal, dog or cat, but with training she has potential.

Story
Loki is a 4 year old loving and playful boy with lots of energy. We got him from a rescue in the Kansas City area that has since closed. He plays well with the other dog in the house but gets a little jealous when it’s time for love. He is house broke and crate trained. Knows a few basic commands. He always wants to go with and did frequently with dad until he got sick and couldn’t go anymore. He would love some running room or an active person to play with. He is good with teenagers but has never been around small children.
