Meet Blue–An Adoptable Dog in St. Louis!

It Ain’t Easy Being Blue
Kermit the Frog famously sang “It Ain’t Easy Being Green” and though I’ve never been a frog or a Muppet, I don’t think Kermit had a CLUE how it feels to be a dog named “Blue”.  Allow me to me explain.

You’re My Boy Blue!

I’m going to start with an easy one. I can’t count the amount of times I’ve heard “You’re My Boy Blue” after…

Meet Wes – An Adoptable Dog in St. Louis!

Meet Wes!

Look deep into my eyes. You’re eyelids are getting heavy. You’re getting verrrry sleepy. Just listen to the sound of my voice. Now, imagine you’re in your home, sitting on the couch watching television. The cutest, most loving dog is lying by your side, holding your hand. As you sit there, you think about how lucky you are to have found the perfect dog. He’s house and crate trained,…

This is Denbo. He Needs You.


With his dark, soulful eyes, a notch in his ear and a gray muzzle, you can tell life hasn’t always been easy for this gentle boy. How a dog that has obviously lived such a hard life can have such a gentle spirit is a miracle on its own.He came to us with a fractured leg that he barely used. It had been injured for so long that he had simply forgotten it. An amputation seemed…

Once upon a time an 8-year old Terrier mix met a special toy he named Mr. Kong (he isn’t very creative). At first Timmy wasn’t sure what to think of his rubber companion, but after a few sniffs and nudges, they became inseparable.

The dynamic duo started going on many adventures together and learning life lessons. Here are just a few:

Meet Beckett—An Adoptable Dog in St. Louis!

Beckett’s foster mom was cleaning up his room one day and found his diary. She knew she shouldn’t read it, but she just had to. She couldn’t help but smile and laugh at some of his entries. Here are some of her favorite excerpts:

Dear Doggie Diary,
Humans are weird. I keep getting lots of treats and praise for doing my “business” outside. Um, where else would I do it? I mean, it…

An Adoptable Dog in St. Louis – Meet Chassis!

Meet Chassis!

Chassis is a boxer mix who is potty trained and crate trained.  She does well with other dogs with a proper introduction but does not care for cats. She is a low-medium energy lady who is working on her leash walking skills and still figuring out that all those toys on the floor are for her entertainment.

Chassis is a very sweet girl who is learning to trust humans. After…
