Story
Meet TJ. 1 year old red healer/American bull dog. Fixed. TJ has been through a three week long board and train training program with Camp Lucky. Will be happy to teach all of his commands to you. The one reason we are getting rid of TJ is that he is too protective over us. We believe that once he gets a new home that aggression with reside. His bond has just grown too strong with us. TJ loves to play and is a super loving dog to people. He loves to play catch with the ball and loves to chewy on every toy. But since he is trained he knows what not to chewy on. TJ is good with other dogs and loves to play with them. We don’t know if he’s good with children. TJ is the greatest dog when me or my girlfriend aren’t around. Submissive and kind.

Story
If you're looking for that bully breed smile and cuddling personality then Sadie is your girl! She's all love and wiggles with humans and doesn't know a stranger. She is good with most other dogs, but can be over reactive to high arousal situations. Meaning no dog parks for this girl. She loves to play with toys and will throw the toy and chase it down herself. She loves her people and wants to be with you. She doesn't like cats and she's nervous in new situations. Sadie came from a terrible hoarding situation. (https://www.kshb.com/news/local-news/ray-county-sheriffs-office-breaks-up-puppy-mill-50-to-70-dogs-found-on-property) she is looking for a forever home willing to give her stability, rules, and help her be her best self. Sadie is spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $200.

Story
We show our dogs by appointment only. If you are interested in adopting Bear, please fill out our online application at kcpaws.petfinder.com.  Bear is the sweetest lab/pit mix. He’s a shy, lazy big puppy that loves his walks, playing with other dogs, snuggling and sun bathing outside. Bear was abused by his last owner so he’s scared of everyone he firsts meets. Once he warms up to someone he loves to cuddle up next to them while he takes one of his many naps throughout the day. Since Bear suffered so much trauma with his last owner he’s still learning how to be a dog. He mimics his 2 sisters every move. They also are his best friends and safety blankets. Bear would need to be in a home with another dog. He would also do best in a home without a lot of commotion. Due to his previous trauma he’s very skittish of loud noises and a lot of movement.  Bears owners are rehoming him because they are having a baby and have decided that they can't keep him now that they are going to be busy with the baby and having people over often, which is stressful for Bear as it takes him a while to warm up to new people.  Bear is an extremely sweet dog that just needs a little emotional support and patience. He is smart and would benefit from continued training. Bear does great at doggy daycare and would make a great playmate for another dog.February 26, 2024, 7:59 am

Big and gentle Miss Marple. This is a 80 lb tripod that came in as a stray. She is soooo calm and laid back and absolutely on the leash. Slightly shy but she's not afraid, just quiet and not excitable. This girl is so easy to love!

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Lady Bug was rescued from a bad situation and has been treated for puncture wounds and skin condition.  Her owner passed away and no one else was able to give her a home. She is currently in a home but lives on a separate level as she does not get along with the resident dogs. Lady Bug needs a home as the only animal. She is  housebroken, walks beautifully on a leash and has the sweetest temperament of any dog the family has met.  Lady Bug is truly a LOVE BUG with humans. The animal listed on this page was listed as a courtesy to help find the animal a home.

Updated 2/5/24. Still needing to find a loving home for this fella. His name is Hoosier. I got him when he was approximately 4 years of age, and I’ve had him for 5 years. Completely house trained. Great with people and other pets. He is used to being around cats as I have one of those too. I’m moving and just can’t take him with me. He will come with several supplies. Food bowls, Dog bed, doggie door that fits in glass sliding doors, etc… Would like to see him go to a loving home where he gets more attention than I can give. He is very self sufficient and easy to care for. Goes outside on his own with the use of a doggie door. Likes to play ball in the backyard as well as doing the lazy dog days thing too. Feel free to reach out with any questions. Thanks for looking!

These pups are in Independence, Missouri too!

We are needing to rehome Izzy due to severe allergies with my newborn grandson. She is a wonderful dog very loving. We have had her for 1 year. Loves toys,loves to fetch and she's all about the food lol. We took her from a neighbor that said he had to move into an apartment and could not take her. She's missing one toe on her front foot and it kind of makes her special 🙂 My phone number is (xxx) xxx-xxxx . She is a chunky and wrinkly girl. Overall she is a wonderful girl. She's great with dogs but i've never had her around a cat so I'm unsure about that. My guess is that she would probably do fine. She is good with children. No real issues. We are willing to get her shots up to date for whoever would like to give her a loving home. She has no health issues or concerns. She has also been taking heart guard so there's no chance that she would have any heartworms or anything like that. Also, she's mixed with English bulldog so she has no tail.
