Story
Hi there, I'm Atlis. I'm a sweet, 11 year old Maltipoo. I'm a gentle boy with a lot of love to still give and my years have taught me the art of companionship. I'm in a foster home with other dogs and cats and I do great! I'm a good boy and patiently awaiting someone to take me in for the rest of my golden years. If you're interested in adopting me, fill out an adoption application online at www.polkcountyhumanesociety.org/adopt where you will also find a link to request an appointment to meet me. Some pets are in foster homes or may already have an appointment scheduled, so the appointment is important to make sure I will be available to meet you when you come. No need to call to find out about me, you can ask questions on the application or email questions to info@polkcountyhumanesociety.org. Polk County Humane Society is located in Bolivar, Missouri, but also makes transports to the Denver, CO, Des Moines, IA and Minneapolis, MN areas twice a month. For potential adopters in those areas, we can do a virtual visit using FaceTime or another app. Just request an appointment using the same link, but note that you want the visit to be virtual and we will call you at the time of the visit once it is confirmed. For long distance transports, there is an additional $100 fee to cover the cost of the transport ($65) and a health certificate from a veteinarian ($35). Going that last mile home for our sweet pets! ##2063395##

Story
They say the best things come in small packages, and it couldn’t be more true for Harper! The ultimate lap dog, this pint-sized peanut will happily follow you around the house all day but is quick to make a beeline for you whenever you sit down. And while she LOVES to snuggle, you may be surprised to learn that she’s also always up for a stroll around the neighborhood too! This loving lil lady is 2 years old and weighs in at a small but mighty 8 lbs. She’s non-destructive around the house, cat AND kiddo friendly! The full package! She can get up and down stairs easily and is able to get up on the couch and bed too (anything for more snuggles!). She is 95+% potty trained - she had two small accidents the day she joined her foster family but has since been doing great once she understood her new routine. She is food motivated and enjoys playing with small, squeaky dog toys. Harper is doing well with her 65-lb foster fur brother, and would do well in a home with mid- to low-energy dogs. Harper also shows a preference for women. Harper is the best little lovebug. Her foster mom is over the moon for her and can’t wait for her to find her forever home. Whoever gets her will be one lucky family! Please submit an application to meet this precious girl! You won’t be disappointed. Adoption fee includes the following: Spay/Neuter Rabies Vaccination Distemper / Parvo Vaccines (includes series of 3 for puppies) Bordetella Microchip with prepaid lifetime registration Deworming ##2050146##

Sweet, snuggly, silly Sophie here! Looking for the most adorable cuddle bug? It’s me. Hi. I’m the snuggle bug.. it’s me. I prance around following my foster mom wherever she goes, and she’s constantly saying, “Oh my God, you are so cute I could cry!” I’m 5 years old, so my naughty puppy days are behind, but I’m still puppy-size at just 8 lbs. I’m pretty sure my best days are ahead of me. I hope they’re with you! Here’s a list of my good girl traits: Potty-trained Great on a leash Happily go into my crate and don’t make a peep! Great with other dogs Sleep through the night (snuggled right up against ya, if you want!) What more is there to ask for?! Oh! I’m also a bit of a shy Sophie sometimes.. it took me about 36-48 hours to warm up to my foster mom, but now she calls me a “Velcro dog,” whatever that means! All I know is that I never want to leave my person’s side. If that person is you, I can’t wait to do best friend things with you all the time. I’ll love you for my whole life! I'm up to date on vaccinations, spayed, microchipped, and will receive heartworm treatment at the full expense of the rescue. Apply to meet me today!

Story
Heather is a sweet Maltese that is currently being fostered with one of our dog trainers that specializes in timid, shy dogs.  She is a breeder release and is guessed to be around 6-7 years old.   She is absolutely adorable and her foster mom says she is making great progress but is still very nervous around new people. She is quiet  and wants so badly to come close but is still quite nervous. She is fully kennel trained and with a pee pad in her kennel. It is her safe place.  She loves to be out in the dog run.She will need someone to introduce her to the world slowly to give her time to adjust to her new life. There are lots of other dogs at her foster moms house so we know she is dog friendly, her foster doesn't have any cats but thinks she would be fine with them if introduced properly.  She thinks she would do better in a home with a confident dog or in a quiet home with adults or older quiet kids only. She will need an adopter who will give her love and patience. Please consider this adorable girl as a part of your family. She deserves all the love in the kindness and will give you a lifetime of affection. The shy dogs become the most loyal dogs, who adore their humans. Her foster mom is located in Fort Collins Colorado and wants to find a patient adopter who is willing to help her continue with her training and help her gain confidence either with in person, or virtual training session(s). She will provide a discount on training.  The amount of training needed will depend on the knowledge and experience of the adopter and how far along Heather is at the time of adoption.
