Story
Squish is a 9 month-1 year month old male Pitbull. He has a high energy level, so he would benefit from an active family with a fenced yard and plenty of space for daily exercise and play. He is loose and wiggly when greeting, and comes when called for snuggles. He also loves to hop up into your lap for hugs and kisses. Squish walks well on a leash with no pulling. He is food motivated, but does not yet know any commands. He mixes well with other dogs in a kennel, but is afraid of cats in the shelter environment. Dogs are generally tested with dogs of their own size; and dog meets with the resident dogs are always encouraged. Our cat test should be used as a general-purpose screening only to rule out overt aggression; we always recommend caution when introducing dogs to cats in the home. Recommendation on suitability of placement with children by their ages is based on behavioral observations including energy level and response to body handling. We never recommend leaving young children unsupervised with dogs, and we cannot guarantee the behavior of dogs with children, other pets, or cats. Behavior evaluations should be considered as a snapshot of the behavior of the dog at this point in time; JHS believes all dog families need to be prepared to invest time and energy into training as well as provide common sense management of their new dog. We always encourage family to do some research on the breeds or mixes of breeds prior to adoption as many can have some unique characteristics that may or may not fit into their families. Always remember that the majority of dogs at our shelter have been exposed to or may have kennel cough. Kennel cough is contagious to other dogs, please talk to your vet if you have any questions about kennel cough prior to adoption. Please ask your adoption counselor at time of adoption if you have any unanswered questions regarding illnesses and treatments of the pet that you are adopting. For more information about this dog or any others at our Shelter, please visit www.joplinhumane.org. We are the Joplin Humane Society in Joplin, Missouri. 417-623-3642. I AM SPONSORED!

Story
Rosie was rescued off the streets on the fall of 2023 very pregnant and in poor health. A week later she gave birth to 11 puppies. Rosie had some medical complications that have been treated. Since then all her puppies found a home but she hasn't. She is suspected to be about 3 to 4 years old. She has been spayed and has her vaccines. Rosie is now house broke, kennel trained, and is great with kids, other dogs, cats, and probably anything else you introduce her to. She is learning basic obedience. She is not at all food aggressive. She hardly barks. She loves snuggles on the couch, treats and toys. She is a happy girl. She is timid when walking on a leash or being outside. She will make anyone a fantastic companion. She is low energy as well and has the best disposition.
