TJ is a wild little man. He has an attitude and will tell you if he doesn’t like something you’re doing. I truly believe he knows lot of profanity and will use it. He loves to be in your lap and snuggles up to you in bed to sleep. He does have a problem with hiking his leg. He will go outside but wants to make sure his scent is on everything. He wears a belly band and is fine with it. If interested in adopting please go to and fill out an application to adopt.

Tequila is a loner. He will lie on a dog bed all day long until he wants to be fed. Then, he keeps jumping on you till you feed him. He is not a lap dog. He sleeps in bed and will let you pet him. He will lick your hand but will not give any kisses. He would only work in a house with no children. If you’re looking for a lover he is not the one. If interested in adopting please go to and fill out an application to adopt.

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.

.Lucy is an 8 year old medium haired Beverly Hills Chihuahua (actually from Beverly Hills!). She has been well taken care of her whole life eating high quality grain free food and has had regular vet visits. She is beautiful and the best snuggler! She would do well with older children or no kids at all. She is up to date on all her vaccinations and spayed. We will need to get her microchipped before adoption.

Princess is such a love. She loves snuggles and is content to just be with you. She gets along with other dogs of all sizes. She really is a sweetheart and deserves a loving, kind home.

Perfect puppy just waiting for you?!?!
 Ollie is a 7 month old puppy who is full of energy but loves to cuddle his humans and watch TV with you, too. He loves to play fetch and tug of war. Walks are another of his favorite things to do and he does really well on a leash. Ollie is potty trained as long as you have a fenced in yard. He isnt good about potty8ng when on a leash. He will sit for a treat but will soon be doing all sorts of tricks for you! 
 I believe Ollie would do best with a single person or someone with older children. He likes to bond to one person and needs to be reminded sometimes he is the puppy and you are the boss…..After all, he is a teenager in dog years. At night, or when he wants to chill out, he goes into his crate and is very well behaved in there. In fact, he likes it. It’s his safe place. But, if you are home, he wants to be with you and playing or hanging out with you. Ollie does well with other dogs and cats and will try to engage them in play. Can you give Ollie a furrever home?


Puppy 7 months 

Pepper is a 5 year old male who will be ready to adopt at the end of October (after a dental and his neuter). Pepper’s mom passed away and he was rescued by a family friend. He is so snuggly and loves other dogs and cats. He is fine with new people coming in the house and doesn’t bark much at all. He just wants a lap to sleep on and someone who loves him. .
