 . Kitty .
 . Kitty .  . Kitty .
  • Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Kitty came to us from a home, where she did not receive the attention she needed. She spent most of her life outside, without much human interaction, in the company of the other resident dogs. She does exceptionally well with friendly large dogs and likes to be close to them for security. Kitty is curious but very shy around people. She has learned how nice it is to be inside now, but still has reservations about too much human attention. We are sure, she will come around in the right home, where she will receive the love and patience she needs. Kitty would prefer a quiet home without kids, but with another dog or two, so she can be comfortable and learn to trust people. She would not mind cats in her new home either. Kitty sleeps in her crate at night and goes potty outside for the most part, but still has an accident every now and then. A securely fenced yard would be necessary, to continue working with her and to keep her safe. Kitty will be spayed, up to date on vaccinations, negative heartworm test, dewormed, and microchipped before going to her new home. Her adoption fee of $120 will help with her vet costs. For more information, please contact her foster home at janine_fontaine@yahoo.com.

  • Terrier, Beagle
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Little Primrose was found wandering on a highway, all by herself. We took her in and found her a loving foster home. She is really thriving there and showing her sweet disposition. Primrose is making great progress in potty training. She will need a patient, loving parent as she still has lots to learn. We truly think she would be a good addition to any home - she gets along with everybody! She is energetic and playful. She loves playing with her big foster brothers. Tug-of-war, and chasing a ball are her favorites. Chew toys, and Nyla bones are great for redirecting her from chewing on things she shouldn’t! When she finally gets tired, she loves to cuddle with her humans on the couch. We have no idea what breed she is, unless adorable is a breed!!! If you are interested in Primrose, please call 573-736-2088 or email lovingpawsadoptioncenter@gmail.com Her adoption fee of $120 includes spay, vaccinations, microchip with lifetime registration, flea and tick prevention and dewormer.

  • Boxer, Pointer

  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Candy came to us on August 1, 2018, in very poor condition, weighing a shocking 16lbs. She was emaciated and very weak, would stumble and fall while walking. We put her on a feeding schedule to help her recover, and she is doing really well with it. Slowly, we are putting on the pounds. She is available to a foster to adopt home, we will provide her vetting once she is strong enough for surgery and then her adoption could be finalized. This girl loves everyone, people, dogs, kids. We just want to see this old lady in a loving family where she can snuggle up on the sofa. Won't you please consider Candy? Her adoption fee of $120 helps offset the cost of her vetting, to include spay, negative heartworm test, microchip with lifetime registration, flea and tick prevention and dewormer.

  • Beagle
  • Spayed/Neutered
This little guy is a beagle about 8 months old mostly white with some tan coloring. He's pretty skittish at the moment, but his foster mom is working very hard to get him to come out of his shell. He didn't have much socialization with people up until now, so understandably he is scared. He is ready to find his new home where his new family would give him the same understanding that his foster family is giving him in order for him to reach his full potential. He's been around numerous other dogs since he was born and he gets along fine with them. We're not too sure on how he would do with a cat though. He is in a foster home, so if you'd like to visit with him, please get in contact with his foster family by calling or texting 417-718-5721. You could also email jenzme@ymail.com. He is neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, on flea and tick preventative, and has been dewormed. Adoption donation of $120 will help offset the costs for his vetting.

 . Jaz .
 . Jaz .  . Jaz .  . Jaz .  . Jaz .  . Jaz .  . Jaz .
  • Pointer, Setter
  • Spayed/Neutered
Jaz Gender: Male Age: Est 2 years Weight: 45 pounds Color: White with Black spots Breed: Spaniel Mix Good with Children: Yes (recommend over 9 and calm) Good with Dogs: Yes Good with Cats: Yes Medical History: He is neutered, microchipped, heartworm negative tested, and up-to-date on vaccinations. He seems to be very healthy. Behavior: He is from a large-scale rescue situation where they lived outside in protected runs and about only human contact was when being fed or talked to. He was petrified of being touched by a human and would tremor initially. He has come a long way in a couple of months with minimal interaction and no longer fears being touched, but has a long way to go and will need lots of patience. He would be considered a flight risk if he got loose; he would not be able to be caught unless cornered. Hopefully he will learn to trust enough to stay with his people. This could take weeks or months. The key has been to allow the dogs to come around as they feel more comfortable. He seems to really enjoy being inside and loves to play with other dogs. Activity Level: Though he is young he is not overly active. He is used to being penned up so plays a little in a pen with another dog but mostly lays in a dog house or quietly inside the house. Leash trained: He walks well on a leash with just a collar. I have had a harness on him and he tolerates it just fine. He may pull if he is startled but generally does not on a normal walk. His defense when frightened is to lay flat. We are working on getting him to stand and go once the leash is on him. This is a training process in progress. House trained: Though he has lived outside in a pen his entire life and has just went temporarily to a foster home for some experience, he has only had one accident in the house. He responds to corrective voice command. He does this business when taken out on a leash or let out into the penned yard. Crate trained: Yes, he will go into a crate and has been in a crate for sleeping overnight or when he needs to be left in the house unattended. Fence: A fence is usually best for a dog and their family and especially needed for Jaz since he would be considered a flight risk. Some of the dogs will not come in the house if they see their person near the door so have to prop the door open and get out of sight so they come in. He needs work on using the leash to bring him in to show him it’s okay for someone to be near the door when he enters. He is led out on a leash so he knows it is all right to go outside. He is learning to be patient when he enters or leaves the house so that his leash may be removed. Foster Comments: Jaz is ready to be adopted to someone that understands his history. I feel confident he will be a blessing to the right family. He is smart and learns quickly. After a short time with me he has learned to appreciate being pet and comes to me for attention. He does not seem apprehensive of men and my husband has been able to pet him while he is on or off leash. At this point, I feel the best thing for him is to be in his forever home where he can continue to learn about being loved as a family pet . He may become comfortable in my home but when he goes to another home, he may revert back to his timid self. He was initially unsure of me but has learned to sit and wait for me to approach him; he normally will lay flat when afraid or frightened but stays there so you can clip on a leash. He is not aggressive. When down he will even allow you to pet and cuddle him. He does not know about dog beds but seems comfortable to lay on the floor in the house or on the porch. He has learned to go up and down the house stairs. It will be very beneficial to have a confident dog in the home. He will learn from them much quicker and gain more confidence and trust by just observing the other dog. Jaz will approach and allow me to pet him as well. He has been around cats inside and outside of the house and does not chase or try to attack them. He is taking treats out of my hand and will take them if placed on the floor for him. He is not treat oriented so verbal praise is necessary when he does something correctly. He is still learning about toys and appropriate items to chew on. Jaz has been very good to potty when taken out on a leash or let out into the dog pen. He has been around children. I feel he would do well with children above the age of 9 who understand how to approach and be still around him. He is not used to playing with children so that may or may not come with time. He has traveled in the car a few times and laid nicely in the back area. He did not get car sick. He is looking for a family with lots of patience and understanding. If he has accidents in the house, you have to clean up and move on. If you scold him too loudly, it will set him back. He is the way he is due to his living situation. It’s not his fault and I am asking someone to look beyond his issues to the dog he can become with love and attention.

  • Spaniel, Setter
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Hi I am Winnipeg I have been with my foster family since December 2017. I had 9 puppies in a safe warm home. All of my pups have found homes. I was rescued from a 60 plus dog rescue situation and I have only known being in an outside kennel and getting some food and water but have not really ever had the change to get to know people, so that makes me very shy and unsure of what I should do. I am very sweet and friendly love to play with other dogs, they help me to come out of my shell. I like my daily routine which includes going outside plenty of times and run around and play with other dogs. but I need a fenced yard other wise I might get scared and run away. I am house broken as long as I get to go outside often. I am still very scared of the leash but my foster mom will put it on me so she can guide me outside. I will run back into the house after play time. I really like to to hang out in my crate it makes me feel safe. I would love to find my own family who will understand that I need time and that I might need being loved from the distance for a while. I am not mean to kids but kids do scare me as well as to many people all at ones, I think in time I be able to learn to love a few people. The people who rescued me think I am 2 to 3 year old, they say I look like a spaniel breed mix and I think I do have that personality to prove it. I am 38 lbs and I might have gained a few pounds I sure love all the good food and treats I now get to enjoy. The vet I did get to meet said I am a healthy girl. I did get spayed, micro chipped, and I am current on vaccines. My Foster mom makes sure I get heart worm preventative and flea and tick treatment every month. I am heartworm negative and that is great since many of the others I lived with sadly not. Adoption Donation is $120 to offset vet cost. Please contact my Foster mom for more information she will be more than happy to tell you much much more about me, her phone Nr. is 573-528-1978 and her e-mail is marion.clausen.cottrell@gmail.com

Hope, our adorable tripod, is ready to find her forever family! She is fully vetted and recovered from her surgery ❤️❤️❤️ She had a rough life before she came to us.

By the time she was brought to us as a stray, the wounds had healed but her leg still needed to be amputated to allow for a pain free life. She is only about a year old and weighs 50lbs. Likely due to her past, she is a bit standoffish with strangers but warms up quickly when she is approached with kindness. If you think Hope would be a good fit for your family, please call 573-736-2088 or email lovingpawsadoptioncenter@gmail.com.

 . Dutch .  . Dutch .  . Dutch .
  • Pointer, Setter
  • Spayed/Neutered
Dutch Gender: Male Age/DOB: 14 mo; Born: Apr 2017 Weight: 45 pounds Color: White and Black Breed: Pointer / Setter Mix Good with Children: Never been around children Good with Dogs: Yes Good with Cats: Unknown; cats in the area Medical: He is neutered, microchipped, heartworm negative tested, and up-to-date on vaccinations. He seems to be very healthy. History / Behavior: Dutch is a beautiful Pointer / Setter mix (pictures don’t do him justice) from a large-scale rescue situation where he lived outside in a covered pen since about 12 weeks old about only human contact was when being fed or talked to. He is waiting to be moved into a foster home, so is not physically with his foster POC. If interested arrangements will be made for a meet and greet. He was initially petrified of being touched and would tremor and hide. He has come a long way in a couple of months with minimal interaction and no longer fears being touched by the couple people the work with him regularly and not too concerned with strangers. But he will need patience to learn about life with a family and things such as appliance noises, baths, TV or radio sounds, etc. He would be considered a flight risk if he got loose since he probably cannot be caught unless cornered. Though he has made much progress, it could take weeks or months for him to fully trust. The key has been to allow these dogs to come around as they feel more comfortable. He still lives at the location but will get to a foster home eventually if not adopted first. A meet and greet can be scheduled at the contact info below. Activity Level: Seems to be relatively high energy, but he only gets to get out and play every 2 or 3 days for a couple of hours. Where he came from there were numerous other dogs in pens and when given the opportunity he likes to play though he is protective of himself when approached quickly by new dogs. Leash trained: Initially he had to be carried step by step, but now is good on leash / harness. He is very inquisitive and loves his walks so will pull quite a bit so recommend a good no-pull type harness to discourage the pulling. He may try to pull away if he is startled but generally does not on a normal walk. Definitely recommend a martingale collar at a minimum. House trained: No experience in the house yet; adopter will have to be willing to train via gentle correction. If he has accidents in the house, you have to clean up and move on. He is very gentle-natured and scolding will set him back, weeks if not months. Recommend using male wraps until he has an understanding of acceptable behavior in a house since he has had no in-home experience yet. He has not had any experience in a crate. Fence: A fence is usually best for a dog and their family and especially since the whole process will be new and strange to him. Some of the dogs will not come in the house if they see their person near the door so have to prop the door open and get out of sight to get them to come inside. POC Comments: He is ready to be adopted to someone who understands his history and that he may always have some trust issues, but I feel confident he will acclimate in a relatively short amount of time and be a blessing to the right family. At this point, I feel the best thing for him is to be in his forever home where he can learn about life as a pet and family member. He’s been in the car a few times and does okay. It will be very beneficial to have a confident dog in the home. He will learn from them much quicker and gain more confidence and trust by just observing the other dog. He will readily take treats out of my hand and from others. He has not been around children but I feel he would do well with children who understand how to approach and be still around him. He is looking for a family with lots of patience and understanding. He is the way he is due to his living situation. It’s not his fault and is asking someone to look beyond any issues to the dog he can become with love and attention. Dutch is a beautiful, young pointer mix. He has lived his life in an outdoor run and was very resistant to human touch. He will bark out of fear but is not aggressive. He is actually seeming to enjoy his foster mom's touch. He has learned to walk on a harness and leash, but only in the area that he lives where he is comfortable. He has quite a way to go and will require a rescue-minded, experienced, patient owner. His adoption donation of $120.00 covers her vetting, including vaccinations, microchip with lifetime registration, deworming, negative heartworm test and heartworm prevention.

  • Australian Cattle Dog / Blue Heeler
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Prefers home without small kids
Ruger has had a very rough past. When he came to us, he had to be hospitalized immediately: He had two gun shot wounds to his head, and one through the chest. He barely pulled through, and due to this we cannot blame him for being cautious with people he does not know. He is about 1-1.5 years old, seems to be a purebred Blue Heeler. He needs a very special family who will work with him through his trust issues with strangers. He will bond with his family, but will get defensive quickly if strangers approach too quickly. For this reason, we are looking for a home without children for him. If you are interested in Ruger, please email us at lovingpawsadoptioncenter@gmail.com. His adoption fee of $120 includes neuter, negative heartworm test, microchip, flea and tick prevention and dewormer. He is currently in a foster home and meet and greets can be scheduled at your convenience!

  • Chocolate Labrador Retriever, Labrador Retriever
Mason was found as a stray in very rough shape. She has an injured back leg, and she is emaciated. A kind family took her in and is now fostering her through our organization. She is currently in no condition to undergo surgery, but her great blood test results give us hope that she will get better! She has not lost her will to live, she is very food motivated and craves attention and affection from people. We are hoping to find her a place to live the good life, and are willing to negotiate the adoption fee for the right home. We truly just want to see her happy! She did not deserve to be abandoned at her age, and with an injury that could have probably been repaired, had it been addressed right away. Will you be Mason's hero?

 . Dianna .  . Dianna .  . Dianna .
  • Black Labrador Retriever, Labrador Retriever
  • Spayed/Neutered
Sweet Dianna is waiting for a chance to become a family pet. She and her sister Dianna and brother Alberici are estimated to be about 6-8 years old. The more they get out of the runs they have spent years in, the more energetic they become. They have had minimal human contact but are all 3 are sweet and friendly and though not used to the "outside" world, Albi is pretty social and Dianna is doing better with other people and Beth takes a longer to trust. All 3 just follow me around as I work with the other dogs, clean their areas, and feed. They seem to be very good natured and would love to all go to a home together. As you can see from the one original picture, they have put on a little too much weight but that can be regulated once they can get into a real home. Dianna has started her heartworm treatment but can go as a foster-to-adopt to the right home and will continue her treatment until completed. Albi has some vision problems and will most likely go completely blind, so he runs into things once in a while. Her adoption donation of $90.00 covers vetting, including vaccinations, microchip with lifetime registration, deworming, negative heartworm test and heartworm prevention.

Choo Choo Gender: Female Age/DOB: 2-3 years Weight: 40 pounds Color: Black Breed: Miniature Pit Bull / American Staffordshire Terrier ?? Good with Children: Never been around children; recommend older children only Good with Dogs: Not with other females; Needs a well-adjusted male Good with Cats: No Medical: Spayed, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccinations, tested heartworm positive (waiting to be in a home to be treated), otherwise very healthy. She is a beautiful miniature bully looking dog, I call her my little pot-bellied piggy. She is waiting to be removed from a situation involving lots of dogs and has not been able to get into a foster home yet. She has lived most of her life in an outdoor run and though would greet the individual that fed her, she was very scared and resistant to human touch but never human-aggressive. She has quite a way to go and will require a rescue-minded, experienced, patient owner. She is also be a candidate for an approved rescue that could help her become more socialized. She tested heartworm positive, but needs to be able to get moved to a home setting before starting her treatment so she can get the initial daily meds, etc (total treatment lasts about 120 days) and is available as a foster-to-adopt until the treatment is complete. A meet-and-greet can be scheduled. She has come a long way though not yet to the point of desiring touch, she was initially petrified of being touched and would tremor and hide. Though she does not voluntarily come forward and may hide in the back of her run when approached, she has come a long way in a couple of months with minimal interaction and no longer fears being touched by the couple of people she knows and trusts and not too concerned with strangers. But she will need patience to learn about life with a family and things such as appliance noises, baths, TV or radio sounds, etc. She would be considered a flight risk if she got loose since he probably cannot be caught unless cornered. The only experience she has had in the car has been to and from the vet. She gets along great with male dogs and really needs to have a well-adjusted, confident companion dog for her to feel more relaxed and observe so she can learn much quicker about humans and life as a house pet. Due to minimal exposure to different people and having never been around children it is preferred she go to an adult-only or older children only home. Her new family will need to be patient and willing to give her time to continue learning to trust and then basically everything else about family life. This could be weeks, months, or even years. We have found some of the dogs have come around quickly with quiet reassurance and others just need lots and lots of time. She has quite a way to go and is looking for a family with lots of patience and understanding. Leash trained: Initially she had to be carried step by step, but now is good on leash / harness with the 2 people she trusts that work with her. In the beginning she would try to chew out of anything and would chew a nylon or non-chain leash with just a few bites, but is doing much, much better. She may try to pull away if startled but generally does not on a normal walk. Definitely recommend a martingale collar at a minimum. She is apprehensive but will accept petting while on a leash. She will need to be kept on a leash most of the time when she gets to her new home until a routine is established. House trained: No experience in the house yet; adopter will have to be willing to train via gentle correction. If she has accidents, you have to clean up and move on. She is gentle-natured and scolding will set her back, weeks if not months. Recommend using doggie pants until she has an understanding of acceptable behavior in a house. She has not had any experience in a crate. Fence: A fence is usually best for a dog and their family. In her case it is especially important since the whole process will be new and strange to her and it is known that she will go after other female dogs. She may be fine in a secure, quality chainlink or privacy fenced yard for short periods but will and has dug out of small pens and will break out of a standard chainlink kennel. But once she gets in a home and is not confined as she was she may do fine and not try to dig or climb out. Some of the dogs will not come in the house if they see their person near the door so have to prop open the door and get out of sight to get them to come back inside. She is the way she is due to her living situation. It’s not her fault and is needing someone to look beyond any issues to the companion she can become. She is ready to be adopted to someone who understands her history and that she may always have some trust issues, but I feel confident she will acclimate and be a wonderful companion to the right family. Her adoption donation of $90.00 covers her vetting, including vaccinations, microchip with lifetime registration, deworming, negative heartworm test and heartworm prevention.
