 . Ruger .  . Ruger .
  • 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!

 . Hercules .
 . Hercules .
  • Pit Bull Terrier
  • Prefers home without cats
Hercules was found as a stray, and a kind family took him in as a foster. He is a big love bug and wants to be around other dogs and people. He is not a fan of cats, so we think a feline free home would be a safer choice for him. His adoption fee of $120 includes neuter, vaccinations, negative heartworm test, microchip with lifetime registration, flea and tick prevention and dewormer. If you are interested in Hercules, please call 573-736-2088 or email lovingpawsadoptioncenter@gmail.com He is currently in a foster home and meet and greets can be scheduled at your convenience!

 . Ivy .
 . Ivy .
  • Chihuahua, Spaniel
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Ivy is a wonderful little girl who loves her people. She will bond quickly with her family, but is unsure about strangers. Rambunctious children scare her, so we are looking for a home with no young kids for Ivy. She was kept outside in a pen before we got her, so she hasn't been in a home environment much. She will need a loving and patient new family who appreciates her sweet personality and is willing to teach her how to walk on a leash etc. Adoption fee of $120 includes spay, negative heartworm test, vaccinations, microchip with lifetime registration, flea and tick prevention and dewormer. If you are interested in Ivy, please call 573-736-2088 or email lovingpawsadoptioncenter@gmail.com

 . Mama .
 . Mama .  . Mama .  . Mama .  . Mama .
  • Pit Bull Terrier
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Mama has had a very rough life. Her worn teeth show that she knows what it feels like to be hungry and chewing on rocks. She was probably someone's backyard breeding machine for years. She got dumped without her babies, like a piece of garbage. Through it all, Mama never lost her sweet personality! She is actually extremely friendly with dogs, cats and kids and really just wants to be loved. She is on the smaller side for a pittie mix at about 35lbs. We want Mama to find the family she deserves, with a comfy bed for her to lay on, and snuggles on a daily basis. If you are interested in Mama, please call 573-736-2088 or email lovingpawsadoptioncenter@gmail.com Her adoption fee of $120 includes her spay, vaccinations, negative heartworm test, microchip with lifetime registration, flea and tick prevention and dewormer. Mama is currently in a foster home and meet and greets can be scheduled at your convenience!

 . Mason .
 . Mason .
  • 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? If you are interested in Mason, please call 573-736-2088 or email lovingpawsadoptioncenter@gmail.com

 . Primrose .
 . Primrose .  . Primrose .  . Primrose .
  • 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. We estimate her age to be about 9 weeks, she is still an innocent, teething baby. 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 $150 includes spay, vaccinations, microchip with lifetime registration, flea and tick prevention and dewormer. She is currently in a foster home and meet and greets can be scheduled at your convenience.

  • Great Pyrenees, Labrador Retriever
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Tonka is a beautiful Great Pyrenees Lab mix. He is really tall, but very gentle with children. He would like a home where he can spend lots of time outside in a fenced yard, or walking/hiking with his people. He is also a great couch potato though, and bonds quickly once he gets to know you. His adoption fee of $120.00 includes his neuter, vaccinations, negative heartworm test, microchip with lifetime registration, flea and tick prevention and dewormer. If you are interested in meeting this handsome guy, please call 573-736-2088 or email lovingpawsadoptioncenter@gmail.com He is currently in a foster home and meet and greets can be scheduled at your convenience.

Savannah is a sweet gentle girl who loves her people. She is very well trained and will make an awesome addition to any family. She is lovable and eager to please.

  • Chow Chow, Husky
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Fritz showed up on somebody's property as a stray. He was never reclaimed, so now we want to find him his forever home that will keep him loved and safe. He seems to be a Chow mix (blue tongue, curly tail, thick coat, etc), we think maybe mixed with a Husky. He is about a year old and has lots of energy. He is very friendly with people and gets along great with most dogs. He appears to be housetrained. If you would like to give this awesome guy a forever home, please call 573-736-2088 or email lovingpawsadoptioncenter@gmail.com His adoption fee of $120 includes neuter, vaccinations, microchip with lifetime registration, flea and tick prevention and dewormer.

 . Clyde .
 . Clyde .  . Clyde .  . Clyde .
  • Chihuahua
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
This little charmer is Clyde. He is a 5 year old chihuahua mix. He is very sweet but timid towards strangers. He is great with kids and other pets. He tends to have a harder time warming up to men than women. Once he feels comfortable around you (might take a day, at the most), he is the most affectionate little lap dog who loves to be held and give kisses! Clyde is making great progress gaining general trust, since he has been here at LPAC. We love seeing him come out of his shell more and more. If you think Clyde would be a good fit for your family, please text or call 573-736-2088 or email lovingpawsadoptioncenter@gmail.com His adoption fee of $120 includes neuter, negative heartworm test, vaccinations, microchip with lifetime registration, flea and tick prevention and dewormer

Louie was found as a stray. We do not understand why, since he seems to be the perfect gentleman! Likes dogs, kids and cats, and is just a total sweetheart. He is crate trained and house trained. This handsome boy is now looking for his forever family! His adoption fee of $120 includes his neuter, negative heartworm test, vaccinations, microchip with lifetime registration, flea and tick prevention and dewormer.

 . Dianna .
 . Dianna .  . Dianna .  . Dianna .
  • Black Labrador Retriever, Labrador Retriever
  • Spayed/Neutered
Sweet Dianna is waiting for a chance to become a family pet. She is not physically with her foster POC, but if interested arrangements will be made for a meet and greet. We estimate that she and her sister Beth and brother Alberici are about 6 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 three sweet and friendly and though not used to the "outside" world, Beth and Albi are becoming very social. Dianna hasn't had much chance to get out yet and will require more time to learn to trust. Albi has some vision problems so he runs into things once in a while. 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. Her adoption donation of $90.00 covers vetting, including vaccinations, microchip with lifetime registration, deworming, negative heartworm test and heartworm prevention.

  • American Staffordshire Terrier, Pit Bull Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Choo Choo is a beautiful miniature bully looking type dog, can't really figure it out. She is waiting for her chance to become a family pet. She is not physically with her foster POC. If interested arrangements will be made for a meet and greet. She tested heartworm positive, but needs to be able to get moved to a home setting before starting her treatment (120 days) so she can get the initial daily meds, etc. She has lived most of her life in an outdoor run with minimal human contact. She is not aggressive, but is not yet to the point of enjoying human touch too much. She continues to get better with a leash and harness and taking short walks, though she will chew a nylon or non-chain leash with just a few bites but is doing much, much better. 🙂 She has quite a way to go and will require a rescue-minded, experienced, patient owner. She may also be a candidate for an approved rescue who could help her become more socialized. Her adoption donation of $90.00 covers her vetting, including vaccinations, microchip with lifetime registration, deworming, negative heartworm test and heartworm prevention.

Spooky is a sweet little Aussie mix, only 22lbs. He was dumped with another dog on a rural property. He is a bit shy at first, but will warm up quickly when he sees you are going to be nice to him.

 . Dakota .  . Dakota .  . Dakota .
  • Australian Cattle Dog / Blue Heeler, Pointer
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Dakota came to Loving Paws as part of a big local rescue case, where he was one of roughly 80 dogs. He didn't get socialized much, he was kept in an outside run at all times, with little human interaction. When we started helping on the scene, we quickly learned that Dakota was a very sweet and goofy dog, super playful. That is, once he works through his initial insecurity towards strangers. He will need a very patient and loving home, where he can continue to open up and thrive. A volunteer trainer has started working with him on trust, and he is making great progress with leash training, etc. He seems to be good with other dogs, but will chase cats. Dakota tested positive for heartworms and is currently undergoing treatment (started 3/2/2018), so he is only available to "foster to adopt" at this time. If you are interested in Dakota, please call 573-736-2088 or email lovingpawsadoptioncenter@gmail.com His adoption fee of $120 includes neuter, vaccinations, microchip with lifetime registration, flea and tick prevention and dewormer.

 . Trixie .
 . Trixie .  . Trixie .  . Trixie .
  • Spaniel
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Look at this sweet girl! Trixie came to us from a rescue situation, where she was born and lived for the first 8 months of her life. In December 2017, she finally moved to a loving foster home with her sister Mya. Unfortunately, the sisters relied too much on each other, so they did not make enough progress around people. Trixie moved to a different foster home, where she is learning to be part of a family. She made a lot of progress in the last few weeks and it turns out, she likes to be petted and to learn new tricks. Trixie is very attentive and follows basic commands for some yummy treats 🙂 She is currently working on leash training, but is already house trained and crate trained. She goes out into the fenced yard with her foster sisters without any issues and sleeps in her crate at night. Trixie is still shy around people and needs a family, who has the time and patience to continue working with her. She tends to bond easier with women, but she is slowly learning, that men are not so bad either. She is very gentle with children, but would do best with children 8 years and older, who understand to give her space when needed. Trixie loves other dogs! Another friendly and playful dog around her size (35lbs), would really help her to come out of her shell more. Cats are also acceptable house companions for her. Trixie is very smart and eager to learn, she just needs some time to get comfortable with new people and surroundings. If your home has older children or no children, another friendly pup or two and a fenced yard, please contact us to set up a meeting with Trixie! She is worth the wait and so sweet, once you win her over. Contact her foster mom at janine_fontaine@yahoo.com for more information.

  • Spaniel
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Mya was one of the dogs we took in as part of the large scale Pulaski County Rescue, which included about 80 dogs. She wasn't socialized or trained hardly at all until we got her and her litter mates at 8 months of age in December 2017. She has since been in a very loving and dedicated foster family, and are making slow, but steady progress. She has learned to go outside to potty, she gets along perfectly with the resident dogs in the family, and she loves the young boy who gets to play with them. Ideally, we would like to find her a family who has lots of time to spend with her, and maybe a privacy fenced yard where she can romp around and play. She tends to bond more easily with women, but will warm up to men who are willing to spend the time to gain their trust. She is fully vetted and looking for a forever home. Her adoption fee of $120 includes spay, negative heartworm test, vaccinations, microchip with lifetime registration, flea and tick prevention and dewormer. If you are interested, please call 573-736-2088 or email lovingpawsadoptioncenter@gmail.com She is currently in a foster home and meet and greets can be scheduled at your convenience!

  • American Staffordshire Terrier, Boxer
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Prefers home without cats
Moose will make a great companion dog and loves attention, learns quickly when worked with, is super soft and likes hugs and getting his back scratched. He would like a fenced yard where he can play fetch and run around with his toys; he LOVES his toys. He is okay to walk with other dogs and seems to enjoy their company through the fence or when under the control of his person, but his foster mom believes he needs to be with an experienced dog owner if another dog. He is a strong boy so needs someone that can handle his strength even with a properly used restraint. He rides well in a vehicle, benefits from good walks, sleeps well in a crate at night, and can occupy himself for hours with a good chew toy. His breed is guessed to be Black Lab mixed with maybe Boxer or Pittie?? His adoption donation of $90.00 covers his vetting, including vaccinations, microchip with lifetime registration, deworming, negative heartworm test and heartworm prevention.
