Story
** KIRA REQUIRES A 6 FT FENCE ** Introducing Kira! This happy wiggle-butt is a 3-year-old girl who is so ready to have a family of her own.  But did you know there is something called Black Dog Syndrome? That's right.  For some reason, black dogs are less likely to be adopted.  So she's watched all her other rescue friends frolic off to their new homes, yet she still remains.  We don't understand.  She's the total package.  Thanks to the wonderful folks at Puppies for Paroles, she has completed a 12-week training program and has basic manners down.   She loves to do typical pittie wrestles and tug and is a pro at zoomies.  She is excellent at playing with dogs who match her energy and size, though she is also learning how to be gentle with one of the older dogs she is near lately.  Due to her natural prey drive, small dogs and cats are probably not a great fit.  She can be very vocal, so no apartments or condos. Kira is not just your average pup – she's incredibly smart and loves to challenge her mind. You'll often find her engrossed in food puzzles, showcasing her problem-solving skills and intelligence.  Have you ever seen those dogs who can speak by pressing the talking buttons? Well she is starting to learn how to "touch" and "boop" so we think she would make a perfect candidate for the next talking dog superstar on social media.  This sweet girl is looking for a family who understands the importance of continued training and guidance. With her loving heart, irresistible charm, and sharp mind,  Kira is sure to bring endless love and happiness to her new home. If you're ready to open your heart and home to this precious soul, Kira can't wait to meet you! If interested, please  complete the  Adoption Application  on our website at  www.NeedyPaws.org  and we will contact you.  Adopters must live within an hour’s drive of St. Louis, MO. Our $275.00 adoption fee includes up-to-date vaccinations, heartworm testing and preventative, spay/neuter and microchip.   We are a 100% foster-based rescue and all of our dogs live in approved foster homes. We are dedicated to finding the best Forever Homes, and will perform home visits and conduct veterinarian and reference checks for each potential adopter.

Story
Chance is a 7 year old, 75lb American Bulldog mix who is ready to be your best friend! Do n't let his  weight fool you, he is low rider and not that large, just thick! Chance would do best in a calm home, no young kids, with someone who could be with him as much as possible, but his fosters mom works and he does just fine being left alone while she is gone. Chance loves to play with other dogs, but can feel scared around other larger dogs, so  will need slow introductions. He does well with smaller dogs. Chance loves to cuddle, playing tug of war, puzzle games & is very smart. Chance loves to hog the bed at night or snuggle close to keep you warm. Chance is good on a leash & will stay by your side as he went through the Pups4Paroles training program and has come out a more confident dog and knowing all the basic commands. Chance deserves a home that can give him the love he deserves & help him thrive with a consistent environment & routine. ** Chance has recently graduated from the Puppies 4 Parole program through the Missouri Dept of Corrections.  He was a model student during his 12 week training program and can't wait to show off everything he has learned. ** If you are interested, complete the  Adoption Application  on our website at  www.NeedyPaws.org  and we will contact you.  Adopters must live within an hour’s drive of St. Louis, MO. Chance’s adoption fee is $275.00, which includes up-to-date vaccinations, heartworm testing and preventative, spay/neuter and microchip.

Story
Taguchi spent some time out of the shelter on a straycation and we were able to learn so much about him! Taguchi is people friendly, and did well with the other dogs in his temp foster home (a Pomeranian and GSD). This sploot king is crate-trained and potty-trained (he'll scratch at the door when he needs to go out). Taguchi is a medium energy guy who seems to get bored easily so he'd likely be up for adventures and doing new things! He's playful and could do well with another dog that also likes to play. He's very treat motivated and is working on loose leash walking. Taguchi also has the potential to live with cats with the right intros and management. Come meet this fun boy! He would love a foster home or better yet, a forever home!
