Story
Beau is a very playful, sweet boy! We received Beau as a puppy from a friend of ours who is a breeder. He is a purebred German Shepherd. He has become lazy just because our schedules are too busy to walk him enough. We have another smaller dog and he gets along with her very well. He is friendly to other people and kids, but will bark if he doesn’t know someone. He knows a few commands, but could definitely use some more training. We love him very much, but we are having to downsize and are just too busy to give him the time and attention that he needs. We want him to go to a loving home!

Story
Meet Charlotte Lucy, also known as Lucy Lou. This spirited pup has an undying love for her favorite KONG ball, and you'll often find her proudly carrying it around, attempting to sneak it into her sleep crate at night. However, her foster mom, wise to her nighttime antics, prevents her from turning the house into a playground in the wee hours. Living in her foster home, Charlotte Lucy has not only forged bonds with her fellow doggo pals but has also embraced the company of feline friends. Charlotte Lucy has a medical condition called megaesophagus, but she tackles it with resilience and grace. Her condition is well-managed, and she eagerly anticipates her meals in her Bailey Chair. Like clockwork, she adheres to a strict feeding schedule, and her specialized chair will go with her to her forever home. You can read more about megaesophagus here: https://vcahospitals.com/know-your-pet/megaesophagus Despite her health condition, Charlotte Lucy's enthusiasm for life knows no bounds. She can't have regular dog treats, but she absolutely loves baby puffs. She is very food-motivated and eager to please. In terms of manners, Charlotte Lucy is a model canine citizen - fully kennel and house trained. She loves to unwind and find joy in the simple pleasures, such as spending time in the yard, indulging in her favorite activity of sniffing, and soaking up the sun for a well-deserved tan. With her lovable personality, resilience, and intelligence, Charlotte Lucy is not just a dog; she's a cherished member of any family lucky enough to call her their own.

Story
Hi there! I'm Traveler, an incredibly sweet-as-pie German shepherd mix. Oh boy, have I had some exciting adventures in my well-traveled life! I just can't help but love every single person I meet, big or small. Plus, I'm super smart! I've already learned so many cool tricks like "sit, stay, shake, down, roll over, come, and kennel up." Being energetic and still very young at heart, I absolutely thrive on running and playing. It's my ultimate joy! My favorite places at my foster mom's house are snuggling at her feet, in front of the fireplace, or in my kennel bed. When it comes to other dogs, I prefer the company of submissive female dogs only. My neighbor's shepherd, Ferda, is my girlfriend! No other furry creatures please (including cats and livestock), those are too fun to chase! I'm up to date on all my shots, neutered, microchipped, and heartworm negative. My adoption fee is being sponsored by my foster mom! Just fill out the app here and I'll be excited to meet you! Love, Traveler

Story
Meet Wiley! Wiley is a social butterfly when it comes to his canine companions, effortlessly blending into the company of other dogs. His friendly and easygoing nature would make him an ideal match for families looking to expand their furry pack. While he may take some time to warm up to new people, Wiley's affectionate side emerges once he knows he's in a welcoming, safe place. Wiley absolutely loves to play and once his energy is burned off, he'd make a great Netflix buddy! He is very scared of his leash, so he would do best in a home with a fenced-in yard. With a patient and understanding owner, Wiley is sure to overcome his fears and blossom into the confident and happy pup he's destined to be!

Story
Duke was brought home by my 19 year old son. My son is not taking care of him. He is staying at his girlfriend’s most of the time. It is left to me to take care of Duke. I am Asthmatic and dog is not hypoallergenic. He is too big for me also. Duke is a happy sweet dog that needs someone that can spend time with him and play with him. He is full of energy since he stays indoors at my house. I do not have a fenced yard. And will be moving to another location that doesn’t have a fenced yard. Hie is 7 months old and thinks he’s a small puppy. He wants to play with everyone and Jumps up putting his paws on them. Like I said he thinks he’s a little dog. He Just needs someone to play and love him. He likes to be wherever you are. Very sweet loving dog. We do not want to send him to the pound. He’s too nice of a dog. He’s a pretty dog. Please give Duke a new home. ❤️

She needs a new home since we do not have time for her anymore. She knows a few things like sit,paw, and we did start leash training and she's very smart with heterochromia. We put unknown for kids because she spends time with teenagers but I think she is too big for kids younger.

Hello, Remy is 2 years old, he's a good, loving and loyal friend. He can get a bit hyper when you play but he likes to chase around other dogs or his owners. He's great as a protection dog as he is very aware of his surroundings, I love him very much but I can't give him the time and attention he deserves or needs. I would love for him to go to someone who will give him time, patience and just lots of love.

Story
At this point we've given up on sending Wylie to a boarding and training program. They have been swamped with requests, adoptions are slow for dogs without issues let alone dogs with quirks, which means spots opening in The Pet Connection's program are hard to come by. Wylie is good in our indoor/outdoor kennel environment. We have zero issues with him. In a home environment Wylie can become aggressive. I think the constant human interaction is too much? He likes limited visits with breaks and his own space. He's friends with Sasha (the black Shepherd) but doesn't have to be placed with her. Wylie is about 4 years old now (as of June 2023). He's a tall lean boy. Husky/Shepherd/Malamute? They were breeding for dogs who resembled wolves. He fits that mold for sure. Wylie is good with most dogs at this point. Sasha rules him pretty firmly. He used be more of a bully, but that doesn't seem to be the case anymore. Wylie is part of our socially imperfect program. We made a commitment to him and we will honor that commitment. He needs a monthly sponsor to help cover his monthly preventatives and any other medical issues that come up as well as special treats. Just $50 a month and you can be this boy's sponsor. Send us a message if you are interested. If you want to adopt Wylie we will gladly talk with you and go over his past issues and see if your set up can work for him.

Story
Sasha came from a terrible hoarding situation. The lady liked to import German Shepherds from Germany and had a collection of black german shepherds. She wasn't able to care for them and they were neglected in training/socialization. Sasha needs some major training. If you haven't handled a working line German Shepherd she's probably not the one for you. She is intense. She's people friendly, wants to stay with you and stick by your side...but things that move can trigger her chase instinct and she is extremely bossy with dogs she likes and aggressive with dogs she doesn't like. She's never had rules/training. She's sweet with people, which is a blessing for sure. She's gorgeous and if someone spent time working with her she's going to be amazing. Are you the one for her? She's in Richmond, MO. Adoption fee is $200. She's probably 60-70 pounds and 2-3 years old.

Story
Updated Bio as of June 2023: Jupiter was originally found as a lost pup with her 2 brothers in a corn field during winter. She nearly froze to death, she was so cold she couldn't run/move quickly and people were able to catch her. They were all very thin and had to fight to survive with the coyotes out there. Jupiter is learning to trust humans and will be a happy dog around me but still skittish over touch. With new people she will take time to warm up for sure. Jupiter's adoption fee is sponsored. She is ok with other dogs but initially acts like she's aggressive. It's the survival mode in her. Once she knows they aren't going to hurt her she warms up. She will need to be fed separately from other animals.
