Sara is a petite two to three year old female GSD that was part of a neglect case. She was brought to the shelter too thin, full of parasites and fleas, and with a large mass on her belly. Sara arrived to Serendipity and we started working to build her confidence, help her settle, and get some weight on her. She'll be seeing our vets to get the mass removed and we're hoping it turn out to be benign. Despite all of Sara's worries, she is a super sweet girl. She just wants to play and be loved! We can't wait to make that happen for her!! ***** Adoption Fee: $350 ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.

Clyde is a 4 year old male GSD who was living in Texas when his shelter reached out for help. They contacted the Humane Society of MO and they then contacted us. We met this handsome guy and he is SO SWEET!!! Loves attention and will LITERALLY jump in your lap! His ears are "soft" from old hematomas and we think they give him that much more character. Thanks to our wonderful foster families we were able to say Yes! to Clyde and we can't wait for him to join our pack so we can show him the Serendipity way of life -- with lots of love, pets and spoiling in his future!! Stay tuned for more info on Clyde! ***** Adoption Fee: $350 ($400 for 9 months and younger) ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.

Reggie is an approximately 8 yr old male, long coated GSD surrendered to the rescue by his owner due to divorce. Reggie is a SUPER SWEETHEART with people and craves attention. He's always happy to meet new people and loves his foster mom and her son. Reggie came to us a bit of a mess, underweight and badly in need of some TLC. He also has an old hip injury we are checking into and will have x-rays completed when he goes in for his neuter surgery. He's put on a few pounds since he arrived and we have him on supplements to help with his mobility, and we are seeing some improvements. Reggie is reported to be good with dogs, but we've been giving him some time to recoup before we do any introductions. We're hoping that matched with the right dog buddy he'll have a friend to hang out and play with. Reggie is currently fostered in St. Charles, Missouri. ***** Adoption Fee: $250 ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.

This week we were contacted by the family of one of our dogs, Danny. Danny came to us from a high kill shelter in 2014 and was adopted shortly after arriving. Unfortunately Danny's family can no longer care for him due to medical reasons. Although we are saddened by this outcome, as he was TRULY loved, at Serendipity we always stand behind our dogs and he will land safely with us. Danny will be coming back to the rescue this coming week, and we'll spend some time getting to know him again so we can find him the FURever home he deserves. ***** Adoption Fee: $350 ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.

Hans is a GORGEOUS (true) bi-color male GSD that was pulled form a local shelter. He is a high energy, high ball drive boy that is looking for a family to call his very own!! Hans' ideal home is one with GSD experience, no cats, possibly another dog and older children. Hans would thrive in a home experienced or interested in some of the dog sports, including Agility, Rally or Tracking. Found as a stray, we believe Hans is approximately 3 to 4 years old. He can be shy to aloof when meeting new people, but he does attach well when he finds his person. Hans is crate trained and housebroken. If you're a GSD person this boy is your WOW dog. Hans is fostered in Chesterfield, MO. ***** Adoption Fee: $350 ($400 for 9 months and younger) ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.

Sherman is a sweet and wonderful senior boy who we believe is approximately 10 years old. Sherman arrived neglected and in need of significant care, but he's come so far since then. Sherman loves the life of an indoor dog, which includes a warm bed to sleep on, lots of walks and ball time, and hanging out to watch TV. Sherman is crate trained, house broken and just a joy to be with. His favorite thing to do is play ball, which he can do for HOURS!! He also loves to give hugs and snuggle with his foster mom. Sherman is good with older children, very curious of other dogs, but is a no go for cats. He has a lot of love left to give and we would love to find him a forever home that loves him as much as we do. If you'd like to give Sherman a place to call home for the rest of his life please contact us!! ***** Adoption Fee: $250 (Eligible for Seniors Furever Program) ***** NOTE to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Visit our website for more information about our policies.

  • Hound, German Shepherd Dog
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Duke is a 10 month old hound mix who was found dumped in rural Louisiana along with his sister Duchess in July of 2016. Duke and Duchess joined Serendipity's pack in August. Shortly after their arrival Duke's foster family noticed he wasn't thriving quite like his sister. After several vet visits we discovered that Duke had some development issues, including hip dysplasia and shoulder issues. All treatable, but surgery would be required Fast forward to today, Duke has had successful OCD surgery (January 2017) and has recovered WONDERFULLY from that. He no longer has shoulder pain and has full range of motion. He'll be having femoral head ostectomy in March to address his left hip joint, which is currently out of socket, and we're hoping that this will be Duke's final surgery and he will be ready to roll!! He already thinks he is! Throughout all of Duke's surgeries and procedures he has been a dream! Such a sweet boy, all Duke wants to do is run and play with his foster siblings. He loves to walk with them and can't wait for unrestricted activities! Duke is a sweet boy, just over 50 lbs, good with all other animals (dogs, cats, you name it) and super sweet with people. Duke is potty trained and does great in a home environment although he is a talker and LOVES to express himself.
