We do adopt dogs to homes outside of the local area under some circumstances, but we prefer to have our dogs adopted locally. 
 One of our responsibilities as a rescue group is to be there for adoptive family, to help them with any problems or questions that might come up. We also require the adoptive family to sign a contract agreeing to return the dog back to the rescue, at any time, for any reason, if they are unable to keep the dog. That can be difficult to accomplish when the dog is living outside of the local area. 
 We also require a home visit to be completed before we can place a dog. Distance is a factor in whether or not the required home visit can be completed because we are a 100% volunteer run organization. 
 We do have volunteer contacts in many areas but some areas may be more difficult for us to locate a volunteer to conduct the home visit. Furthermore, we do NOT ship our rescues, all adoptive families would need to travel to the St. Louis, MO area to meet their adoptive dog.

Spidey needs a furrever home, too. Again, he is good with kids, cats and other dogs. Spidey can be a little shy at first but once he knows you are safe and won’t hurt him, he does nothing but just LOVE you.

These girls are only about 1 year old and already had their first set of puppies. They just want to be dogs and not mommies! Both love to play and are great with older kids, dogs and cats. Layla and Momma are up to date on shots and spayed so they can go home right away. If you sit at night and watch Netflix, you will find either of them curled up next to you and just be as happy as they can be. This is not a bonded pair so they don’t need to be adopted together. Adoption fee is  $350

Sizzle is a young girl at only about 2 years old or so. She was rescued and transported up to Columbia, MO from a Texas kill shelter. Sizzle had 4 babies and is now ready to be out on her own. She likes other dogs but is not a fan of cats. We have not had her exposed to any kids so we do not know how she would do with them. Since she has a sweet personality, we suspect she would be fine with older respectful children.  
Sizzle is currently in Columbia, MO. She is up to date on shots, microchipped and will be spayed very soon. Her adoption fee of $300 includes her spay.

the Valentine puppies were born on 12/13/18. The rescue just received these babies very suddenly so they have not been vetted yet. They will be ready to go home around the first week of March or so.  

Due to high demand, we can only guarantee a specific puppy if you put down a nonrefundable deposit of $200 which will be applied to your $400 adoption fee when the puppy goes home. Thank you for your understanding.
