Story
If you're looking for a high energy pup, look no further! Janice is ready to run, run, run! She likes toys and treats. She's a friendly gal ready for lots of adventures! I am on the Priority Paws list. This means that I am struggling with severe kennel stress that is impacting my quality of life. I need to move into a foster home or adoptive home as soon as possible. Here's what volunteers had to say after spending time with Janice: If you're looking for a dog that will make you laugh, Janice is your gal. Just give her a squeaky toy and let the fun begin. She absolutely loves toys! She's happy to play by herself but is more than willing to include you in the fun. She would love to have a yard where she can play and explore. She also really likes treats, which will make teaching her new tricks much easier.

Story
Evanescence is a happy girl who loves belly rubs! She has a lot of playful energy and would do well in a home that can match her energy level. She's very loving and oh so pretty! I am on the Priority Paws list. This means that I am struggling with severe kennel stress that is impacting my quality of life. I need to move into a foster home or adoptive home as soon as possible. Volunteers say "Evanescence and I got a pup up and the walked the trails at Capen park. She is a very high energy and playful dog but can definitely lay down and relax when it's time. She is very excited to meet new people but once the excitement cools down she is very relaxed and was a good walker!" "When I first picked up Evanescence she was very happy to be getting a day out. She sat great in the car, face and tongue out the window enjoying the fresh air. We first went to enjoy some coffee and a pup cup and she was a big fan. She did great in the drive through and was a big fan of her special treat. We then went for a nice long walk around the lake. She has great leash skills and didn't pull at all. She didn't react to small dogs or kids on the trail and was more interested in just smelling the surroundings. After our walk we went to B and B bagels to enjoy an outdoor lunch. Evanescence got a little jumpy as the food was out so we decided to eat in the car and she sat great in the back. I think the best home for Evanescence could include another well match pet friend along with older kids." "We went to Starbucks and got her a pup cup, which she was very excited about! She was okay in the car - she didn't want to stay in the back seat but I think she was just a little overexcited because on the way back she was perfect! She seemed to have an instinct to chase after squirrels, but was redirectable. She LOVES people and was very happy about every person she saw. When people pet her she would fall right down on her back for belly rubs. She was a perfect walker and was excited by other dogs but again was redirectable." "I took her to Devil's icebox which she thoroughly enjoyed! We walked along many of the paths there and she got very happy anytime we would run into humans. She wanted to say hi to everyone she could but wouldn't pull very hard if I did not let her. She was really good at sitting or laying down during breaks on our walk and loved being pet and getting her belly rubbed. I think she would be perfect with any family!" "We hung out at Stephens Lake Park for most of our time together, and sat outside of Culvers briefly while I got food. I ended up eventually calling her Evie for short and she was just the sweetest girl ever! She was very polite when taking treats from me, very athletic and I could tell she wanted to run, so she would probably do well with an active family. Since she is so gentle, I could see her doing well in a household with kids. She also loves belly rubs and loves to just be snuggled when she's relaxing. She didn't bark a single time but was tugging on her leash from excitement a bit at the beginning, but calmed down. She was just so sweet and I hated having to let her go!" "For our DDO, we went to a bakery downtown called Uprise Bakery and sat outside (don't worry she got a pup cup!). Then we went to MKT trail and walked 3 ish miles. Then we went back to our room and chilled and she played with a stuffed toy. She was super loving and energetic! She loved the hike and being able to sniff around. She was a very good girl and didn't react badly to other dogs."

Story
Roland is a happy guy! He loves to explore his surroundings and keep that nose to the ground. He seems to be more into toys than treats, but the concept of bringing the toy back doesn't always click. He's ready for adventure! Volunteers say "Roland is a fun loving, bold, and cuddly guy. He warmed up immediately and hopped in my car without hesitation. We walked around my block, hung out at home, got a pup cup, and watched my daughter's lacrosse game at Cosmo park together. He really enjoyed playing tug and being a lap dog. He was uninterested in his pup cup but liked dog treats. I could see him being a great companion for any active person who wants a friend. He is an affectionate, silly, and opinionated dog who was a pleasure to be around." "I took Roland to go get a pup cup, he was GREAT in the car, very calm, didn't even want to stick his head out the window. Then we went to the campus of Mizzou and walked around. He was pretty strong on the leash, I would maybe recommend a harness instead of a collar. He was very friendly and wanted to greet everyone on the walk. When he would great people he wanted to jump and lick, very kind but he would get very excited very quickly and would need a few minutes to chill out." "Roland and I went to play fetch and hang out at a park, and then went back to my house to hang out with my roommates and play some more in the yard. Roland was very excited and had a lot of energy, he loved to run around and play fetch, he would definitely be well suited for someone with an active lifestyle and a good size yard. He is also very sweet and loved to be meet new people, so a social person would also be a good fit." "Roland and I got a pup cup, explored Stephens trail, and went shopping at Lowe's. He also got to run in a fenced in back yard. I don't think he had any issues besides wanting to play with dogs we passed. He was really such a good boy, he could do a sit command and would come when you called for him. We weren't around any kids but I can't think of any problems he would have with any families! He was also very well behaved when passing other dogs and people while we walked."

Story
Lavinia is a sweet, silly girl! She loves people and will happily climb in your lap for some cuddles. She also really loves toys! Her ideal home is one without young children as she likes to play rough. Her short term foster said "Lavinia is wonderful, she is snuggly, mild mannered and smart and very silly. She loves to sleep at the end of the bed at night and has no accidents. She did well with not eating other dogs treats and loves hot dogs. She knows how to sit, and is house trained. She loves car rides and walks and did well on a leash but still needs just a tad bit of help not to pull the leash. She does not like the kennel but will stay in the kennel as long as it is super strong or she will break the door with her strong bite. She loves to play fetch, run and loves to be a lap dog. She was around a lot of visitors and was wonderful with them all and there were all ages. She would love to have a dog friend her size to play with, maybe not in a home with small dogs as her strength can be too much for them. Our cat and her just barked and hissed at each other but did not advance on each other. Lavinia will be a great dog. She is very sweet.

Story
Kawasaki is ready for adventure! He has a lot of playful energy and would love a family that can match. He's super happy and loves meeting people! He has previous experience of doing well with dogs and kids. His foster says " Gunner has been such a good boy since the day I picked him up! He is the cuddliest and sleepiest dog with a great temperament, however, he can muster up a good amount of energy when he finds out he is going on a walk or a car ride. He does amazing in the house, he has gotten a little sassy when being told to go kennel when he doesn't want to but he has already gotten so much better. He knows 'sit', and 'easy' he is super gentle when taking treats, he just learned 'lay down', and he is getting better at 'stay'. He does still need some work on the leash but I have been doing a lot with him and it's mainly excitement or a squirrel! After he gets used to where he is he does great and he has been learning 'heel'. He has loved going on trails around Columbia. He has not come in direct contact with any dogs in my care, but he does great from a distance and seems like he would like to play. His favorite place in the world is the bed lying next to you. He sleeps through the night curled up next to me, and usually sleeps in longer than me in the mornings too. He loves to go on car rides and has gotten much better about his manners in the car. His favorite special treats are vanilla ice cream and peanut butter. He's not a huge toy guy but loves chewing on bones and the Kong toy with peanut butter inside. He is very smart and food-motivated, he has learned his new commands very fast! Gunner is the sweetest boy looking for his forever companion!
