Bella is a 1.5 y/o female GSD mix. She is sweet, but a little shy/skittish to new people due to lack of socialization as a puppy. We will work on that with her to help her feel more comfortable. She has lived with dogs and cats and does well with both. She's a medium to large size female and loves to play with her stuffed toys! Bella will be available soon!! ***** Adoption Fee: $350 ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.

  • German Shepherd Dog

  • Spayed/Neutered
Dante was rescued from a California shelter last April and adopted in May. Recently his adoptive family contacted the rescue with the heart wrenching decision to return him, as Dante requires a more active home to truly thrive. The great thing about rescue is we are ALWAYS here for our dogs, and we are here to find Dante the right home and fit all for HIM! Dante is a great dog, approximately 5 years young, neutered, up to date on shots, and would make a great running buddy or possibly agility dog. As with most shepherds, if Dante isn't given a job he'll find a job, so it's important his forever family is ready to take an active part in working with Dante. His ideal home would have older or no children. Dante has lived with another dog (in his former foster home) but would need to be matched to a dog with a compatible energy level. ***** Adoption Fee: $350 ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.

Zoey - Say hello to our little 4 month old GSD-mix Zoey!! Typical puppy, she needs to learn some manners and boundaries and was tagged for rescue-only as a result.

Precious is a 7 year old female GSD that was surrendered by her family to the local shelter when they were moving. She wasn't doing well in the shelter environment so they asked us to take her in. She's joining Serendipity today and we'll get to know more about her, and how she does with other dogs and cats. Per her surrender forms she "loves kids" and is potty trained. Can't wait to get to know more about this sweet girl.

Heidi is a one year old spayed female that was surrendered to the Humane Society due to owner moving. She is shy, but sweet, and currently has kennel cough and needs to gain some weight. She seems good with dogs but hasn't been able to meet the resident dogs due to her KC. Needs some TLC and confidence building, but expect she'll be a fantastic addition to the right home.

  • White German Shepherd, German Shepherd Dog
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Zeke is a 10-month-old owner-surrender who is great with kids and good with cats. He requires more exercise than his current owners can provide and has developed some inappropriate chewing and crate-escaping behaviors. In July, he was fully obedience trained through a two-week stay-and-learn with Casey Ray. Zeke knows sit, come, down, heel, leave it, and place. He is also fully treadmill trained! In his foster placement, he will be working on some stranger anxiety which triggers excessive barking and herding behaviors. Zeke needs a solid exercise program and a calm, but firm handler to remind him that he is not in charge of the house or those who enter it. We will give Zeke a chance to re-set and learn appropriate behaviors so that he can be successful in his Forever Home. ***** Adoption Fee: $350 ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.

Koda is a one year old female Malinois-mix who was surrendered to the local Humane Society by her family. Koda has had a rough start in life, traveling through several homes, and was "Rescue Only" due to some fear-driven behavior. The shelter reached out to us because they saw her potential to be a valued and loved family member, but they also knew she needed a little help to get there. We're happy to be the ones to step up for this sweet girl. She is a friendly girl, loves to play and wants to please. She has some obedience, is crate trained and is good with other dogs. No cats, though. She is fostered in a home experienced with the Malinois breed where we are wiping away her past to build her future. She is doing amazingly well! ***** Adoption Fee: $350 ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.

  • German Shepherd Dog, Husky
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Meeko is an adorable husky / german shepherd mix born to Serendipity alum Navy along with his 3 siblings on October 17, 2015. While he is still working on filling out that puppy body of his, he weighed 68 pounds at his last vet appointment in July. Meeko was born sight impaired and believed to be completely blind; however, his remaining senses help him quickly adapt to his surroundings. Considering all of a dogs senses, eyesight is actually number three in importance behind hearing and sense of smell. This is obvious when watching Meeko quickly map out his area. He does so well that visitors don't even realize he is blind. He can learn to do small stairs but he needs someone patient to help him while he learns. While his physical limitation does not require any special care, an uncluttered home with a limited number of stairs and no "hazards" such as ledges or drop-offs would be best. Meeko has met quite a few dogs and even a pig and he quickly became best friends with all of them. He is also very people friendly and craves snuggles. Meeko is good with kids and lives in a home with two small children under age 2. He often thinks he's a lap dog and will be your shadow in the house and follow you everywhere. Meeko is 100 percent potty and crate trained but could use some help on a leash, basic commands and overall manners. ***** Adoption Fee: $350 ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.

Maverick is a young male, approximately 1 year old. He's SUPER friendly and SUPER puppy!! He ignores cats and wants to be friends with dogs, but needs a little coaching in that area. Mav is on the small side, probably 50 pounds, but he still has some growing to do.

Tiffany is an incredibly sweet older female, probably 6-7 years old, who was found as a stray in St. Louis County with significant damage to her back leg. We pulled her on a medical waiver and immediately moved her to our vet's office where she underwent amputation surgery. After battling a pretty serious staph infection, Tiffany was finally spayed and has healed well from all her surgeries. She is successfully learning to negotiate life as a tripod and feels SO much better than she did when she arrived. Tiffany really loves spending time with her people, and she's been able to be social with other dogs and non-reactive to cats, but ideally may be best in a home with no other animals. She deserves to be the center of attention in her forever home. ***** Adoption Fee: $350 ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.

Sam is a sweet-faced 2yr old absolute sweetheart who was surrendered to the Humane Society of Southeast MO by his owners due to their own health problems. Sam does OK with other dogs but cats are unknown. He takes treats gently, knows some commands and is crate trained. LOVES the tennis ball!!! Sam was originally adopted by a wonderful family but unfortunately Sam's exercise requirements were too much for a single mom raising two young children. They dearly loved him but knew Sam needed someone who could spend more time one on one with him. Sam is currently in a foster to adopt home and is doing really well!! We're hoping to finalize his adoption soon! ***** Adoption Fee: $350 ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.

Benjamin Buttons (or BB as we call him) became a Serendipity dog on September 19th. Benny came to us from the great folks at Stray Rescue, who saved him from starvation and neglect. He needed a quiet place to recover from his past and some serious groceries. With plenty of high-quality food and high protein 'satin ball' supplements (homemade by our volunteers), Benny now boasts good, healthy fat and muscle on his formerly skinny frame. His coat is full, lush, and soft. Even better, his face is bright, he's eager to greet each new day. Benny was recently moved to a foster home where he is learning how to be part of a family and a pack. He has two GSD sisters but his primary focus is his foster dad, who he has begun to bond very tightly to. We will continue to take things slow with Benny. This sweet guy went through some of the worst life has to offer and has come out the other side, ready to thrive. Benny will be available for adoption soon! ***** Adoption Fee: $350 ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.

Annie is a super sweet sable GSD that was surrendered to a kill shelter in Little Rock, Arkansas along with her "mother" Margaret. The living conditions they came from were awful -- bugs, ticks, fleas -- so bad that the shelter seemed like the Plaza Hotel! Annie is approximately a year old and is just a fun loving little girl who loves everyone she meets...people, dogs, cats, EVERYONE!! Annie came to St. Louis earlier this year and immediately went to a foster home. They have fallen in love and Annie is now Foster to Adopt!
