Legend is a four year old, 75 pound, super handsome fellow that was rescued from the high kill Moreno Valley shelter in CA. He is a very nice dog but because he had kennel cough, they recommended he be euthanized. Serendipity happily pulled him to get him to safety. He will arrive in MO soon and we will post updates as we get them! ********** Adoption Fee: $350 ********** Note to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Please visit our website for more information about our adoptable dogs, policies, and a link to our Facebook page.

 . Merlin .
  • German Shepherd Dog
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Merlin is about 8 years old and was owner surrendered to St Louis County Animal Control. He is a friendly dog and friendly to other dogs as well. We will continue to evaluate him and post updates as we have them! From the foster mom: Merlin is an 8 year old German Shepherd mix picked up by the police as a stray. he is around 65 pounds. Merlin is an excellent housedog. He is reliably housebroken day and night, non-destructive, and has a low activity level. He is friendly, gets along well with other dogs, including small dogs. He comes when called and is not prone to barking, although he will bark at strangers, and can’t resist joining in if there is another dog barking in the neighborhood. (He will stop when asked.) He is not interested in getting on furniture, including the bed. He easily goes up and down the basement steps, and storms don’t seem to bother him. Merlin’s joy in life is walks. They don’t have to be long walks, but he loves to sniff and mark. I’ve been using a pinch collar just to keep him from getting too far ahead. He tends to lag while he sniffs and then gets too eager for the next scent. Lately, I’ve been walking him with one of my other dogs and he is non-competitive and well-mannered. Merlin would like to bark at other dogs if permitted but is easily redirected. He is not interested in squirrels. The walks, or dog park visits, are really key for him as he has no ball drive, is uninterested in toys or bones, or in playing with the other dogs. Merlin could be a good fit for someone in a smaller space, including an apartment or townhouse, who can walk him 2-3 times a day for 15-20 minutes at a time. Merlin is largely untrained so would benefit from obedience training. He tends to door dash. All in all, Merlin is a nice, mellow, low maintenance, companion dog. At this point in time, his permanent home would need to continue to work on basic training and be able to follow the heartworm treatment protocol. As he becomes more relaxed, I’m sure more of his sweet personality will come out. ********** Adoption Fee: $350 ********** Note to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Please visit our website for more information about our adoptable dogs, policies, and a link to our Facebook page.

Bud is a sweetheart. He is great with other dogs. He is looking for a wonderful family to give him some TLC. Bud is 125 lbs - very overweight. He needs to lose about 30 lbs at least.

 . Bella .

  • German Shepherd Dog
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
My name is Bella. I'm looking for my furever home. My foster mom says I’m a great companion. I like to go for rides, hang out with her and work, go for walks and hikes, and did I mention I really like to go for rides! I’m happy and easy to get along with but I do need direction, cause I'm a Shepherd. My foster brother says 'easiest dog ever' but I think he is partial. I got along fine with a female Belgian Malinois and would do well with a male who is stable. Little kids are fine too, as long as they are respectful and leave a little jelly on their face for licking. My foster mom has not had the opportunity to test me around small dogs but I love to chase anything that runs from me so it is probably not the best fit. It is not my fault, I'm just a Shepherd. I am potty trained, kennel trained and know my basic commands. Look forward to meeting you soon! Bella is a great dog and would make a wonderful companion for a family or a single person. I call her ‘a princess’ because when she is happy she prances around and does a little dance. I have had no issues with Bella at all. She responds well to verbal commands and has gotten along with other dogs I have been around. However, if a dog gets aggressive with her she will stand her ground. Bella, like all shepherds needs to have boundaries and consistency. ********** Adoption Fee: $350 ********** Note to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Please visit our website for more information about our adoptable dogs, policies, and a link to our Facebook page.

  • German Shepherd Dog

  • Spayed/Neutered
Boo Boo is currently seeking a forever home - she's a happy-go-lucky GSD mix, who has a tail wag for everyone she meets. She loves all people, and gets along well with other dogs (has not been cat tested with us). She is house broken, crate trained, and does well on a leash. Even though she is small in stature, Boo has a ton of energy and her adoptive family will need to be able to walk her or spend a fair amount of time (daily) with playing fetch and/or tug of war. We have been working on basic manners, and she's doing well with 'sit', 'down' and 'here', but daily practice is needed at this point. Boo is eager to learn, picks up quickly, and is treat motivated. I think she would really benefit from a training course (maybe Petsmart basic/intermediate classes?) just to improve upon what she's learning and help make her the best possible... I also suggest this, because sometimes it's hard to get her to focus when our dogs are milling around in the background ..especially if mine think I'm handing out treats (lol!) She would do well with another dog, or as a single. Overall, she's really just a delightful little girl, easy to get along with and a huge lover. ********** Adoption Fee: $200 ********** Note to those viewing this profile on Petfinder.com: Please visit our website for more information about our adoptable dogs, policies, and a link to our Facebook page.
