Story
Harley was 4 mo when I adopted him. He is now 10 mo. His original owner was no longer able to have him due to landlord restrictions. Harley is 4% Pitbull. He can be a big baby sometimes (likes to snuggle) at other times he is very aware of what is going on outside and will let you know. I discovered he does not like cats, he will drag them around by their collars. His command to leave things alone is....LEAVE IT....he obeys. He sleeps in a kennel at night, and during human mealtimes. He has never pottied in the house. Will shake paws. He needs someone who will finish his training and is okay with his size. I think he will be xlarge and I am not able to physically handle him. I see him being a very good dog after the puppy stage. If you are interested in Harley, you will see for yourself what a great dog he will be.

Story
We show our dogs by appointment only upon an approved adoption application. If you are reading this, we are still accepting applications for Tiana.  OUR ONLINE APPLICATION CAN BE FOUND AT KCPAWS.ORG or click this link: https://form.jotform.com/230296113596155 Meet Tiana! She is around 3-4 years old and weighs about 50 lbs. A good medium sized dog. We are so grateful we were able to get her out in time. She was so excited to come here and has been nothing but sweet to all of our staff and volunteers. Tiana is very affectionate and loves to have her wiggly butt scratched! She also loves to play in water.   Tiana, unfortunately does have some medical special needs. We took her to the vet for a third time as we had been trying to determine why she has over the last few months been prone to UTIs. After multiple test, and medication trails, it has been discovered that she has stage 2 kidney disease. Tiana came to us all the way from Texas, she had been dumped on a rural highway and left behind by her owner, she ended up at a high kill shelter and simply because she was a black pit bull, and as we know black pit bulls are the hardest dogs to find homes for, she was scheduled to be euthanized for space. I saw her sweet face on a Facebook post from the city shelter and pulled her immediately. A few days later, she was on the road to KC and to us. Cut to a year of her being at our shelter, she finds a home that I thought was going to be the best thing ever. I did her home visit, the family and home were so nice, the adopter asked great questions and kept in contact with me for a while, sending pictures and telling me how great she was. One year later, she gets brought into boarding while her adopter is out of town... and they don't come back for her. And we find that she has been having issues urinating, but her adopter hadn't taken her to the vet. So here she is again, in the shelter, I can only assume because she was having accidents, and her kidneys are failing her. Even with everything she's been through, and everything she's currently going through, she is the happiest girl. She gives everyone she meets big hugs and kisses and will do anything to get a little extra snuggle time. She is happy and loves to go for walks. Still, she is here, without a home of her own. Tiana loves people and would be great in a home with kids, however we have not had any cats around since having her so we would have to introduce her to any cats that may be in the home before we could say for sure if she would be okay with them. Tiana can be protective of her people at times, so it is important that she is in a home with owners that are committed to keeping he well socialized.  Tiana gets a long with many dogs but there have been a few that she has not meshed well with, she prefers chill, not so in your face playmates. But she would be perfectly happy to be an only dog and get all of the attention.  Much like their feline counterparts, black dogs find it difficult when it comes to adoption. Particularly larger black dogs – they are often left forgotten in what many shelter works call black dog syndrome. Basically, black pets typically are passed over for dogs and cats with different colors or unique markings.  If you have room in your heart and home for a sweet girl who eager to please, willing to learn, and very sweet, please consider applying for Tiana!May 25, 2024, 1:36 pm

Story
Legend is 5 years old, Spayed, Microchipped, and Up to date on vetting Adoption fee SPONSORED Legend is an incredibly sweet cuddle bug who loves to give kisses and hugs to her people and loves to go for walks! She is a sensitive soul who can be nervous around new people and new surroundings, she needs a confident owner who will help her overcome her fears and set expectations for her so that she can rely on structure to help with her nerves. Legend is potty trained and walks great on a leash and knows all of her basic commands. She gets along well with calm, respectful dogs, who will give her time to warm up. She does need slower intros with new dogs as she will be nervous at first. Legend would do best in a home with no small children, but is not aggressive towards kids, the loud noises and fast movements just make her nervous and she would be most comfortable in an adult only home or possibly teenage age kids rather than young children.  Legend is really the sweetest dog with a little patience and TLC, She just needs a little time to come out of her shell. Once she does, you'll never get her out of your lap!  May 25, 2024, 1:36 pm

Story
Hi there! I’m Eleven! I got my name from the Stranger Things show, I got this name because I’m pretty super, and I have beaten all the odds to be here today, and no matter what challenges I’ve faced, I just keep getting STRONGER!   I came into MABBR with all my siblings from a rural animal control shelter, we were saved from a pretty neglectful situation. I was the smallest of all my siblings, and I was born with a pretty serious heart defect, that meant that if I didn’t get surgery, I might not make it.   Luckily I landed in a foster home, that would help me get strong enough for surgery! In my foster home, I live with 6 other dogs, 3 cats, and 2 young kids! My very best friend is my human foster sister, she’s 2 years old and she and I just get each other! We have so much fun playing, cuddling, and exploring the world together! I also love my foster brother Nuke, he’s a Shepherd mix and he taught me how to wrestle like a pro! So I’d really love a home with a big dog to play with, because I may be small, but I AM MIGHTY!   I’m very smart and super athletic! I’d love an active home! I currently play at doggy daycare while my foster mom works, so I’m not very used to being home alone a lot, I’m kennel trained and doing super well on potty training. But I’d prefer a home where my person is home most of the time, or would be willing to take me to doggy daycare a few times a week.   I’m recovered from my surgery now, everything went great, you would never even know I was sick! My doctor said I will have a normal, happy and healthy life! So now I’m ready to find a forever home and a family of my very own. Do you think that could be you?May 17, 2024, 4:10 pm
