Story
Wyat is a sweet and loving dog. He loves a good spot for napping, blankets in the winter and t-shirts or sweaters. He is non-destructive. He is good with other dogs. Reactive on a leash. We really love him , but with another baby in the way, our budget is stretched so thin. He has a loud bark but is not aggressive to people. He has basic commands like sit, shake, down, off, leave-it and “got out of here” lol. Sleeps most of the day but very athletic and fast outside. Will need a fenced yard.

Story
We did Brownie's DNA! He's about half cattle dog and the next biggest result was Boxer but he is mixed with many other breeds. Brownie is a sweet, energetic and spunky guy who had a rough start in life. He loves affection and is a good boy. He was found as a stray in Bonne Terre and got picked up by animal control, which is just a shed. We believe Brownie would do best in a more quiet home with older or no kids and an active owner that would spoil him and give him the life he deserves. Brownie will need a fence as he has a high prey drive and loves to chase the yard critters. If there are other dogs in the home they should be about his size or bigger. He loves to play with the other dogs. He has been introduced to the dog savvy catin the house and they get along okay.We only adopt to people in the St. Louis METRO area.

Story
My name is Gracie Mae. I was born on December 27, 2023. I am beautiful and a full blooded Miniature Pinscher. I am a bundle of energy. Foster mom says I am a bit crazy, but I prefer "spirited."I know you will be awe struck by my beauty, but please do your research on my breed. I am a bit hard headed, independent, and tend to be a bit dominant. I'm a great girl and love to snuggle, when I decide it is time.I am very athletic and need a lot of exercise. I am lightning fast and a bit of an escape artist, so a secure fence is a must.If you are interested in meeting me, please put in an application. My foster mom loves me a lot, so she will be very picky about who my new family will be.We only adopt to people in the St. Louis METRO area.
