Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed. Please contact ADOPTION (adopt@doggieharmony.org) for more information about this pet. Hi, I'm Sonja! I'm a petite young lady who somehow wound up at a county shelter with my teeny 5-day old baby (Ranger). A kind lady felt sorry for us and pulled us out. Boy, were we lucky. I've was a great mommy and my baby found his forever home, but I'm still desperate to find mine! I am uber-smart, active little gal who loves to play. I'm dying to have a big space or fenced yard to run in -- or maybe just an active companion who likes to run, walk, hike and stay busy. I'm super-affectionate and have been known to do somersaults in excitement to see my people. I am pretty generous with my kisses too. I am currently living with inmates as part of the Jail Dog Program and they teach me all kinds of tricks. The guys think I'm quite the super-star! I don't need fame, but won't you consider taking me home and making me your baby? P.S., My adopter/foster can also take me to Frogs to Dogs training and socialization classes on an unlimited basis. It's a great way for us to bond and get started on the right foot! (See frogstodogs.com -- they're the best!)

She is currently in the "Jail Dogs Program" learning obedience, tricks and improving her socialize skills with other dogs. Vetting: Spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and heartworm negative Contact adopt@doggieharmony.org with questions or complete/send an Adoption Application. We look forward to hearing from you. Doggie Harmony's adoption fee is $175. To ensure we're meeting both pet and adopters' needs, we ask potential adopters to complete an application and later, bring the adoptable to their home for a preliminary visit.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Chihuahua / Mixed. Please contact ADOPTION (adopt@doggieharmony.org) for more information about this pet. Hey, everybody! Tiny Tim here! I arrived at rescue in early April and have been settling in. They don’t really know my back story; just that I’m a young, healthy boy who ended up at the kill shelter. And now? Here I am, ready for a second chance. I absolutely love everyone I meet. As you can probably tell from my photos, I’m very much a lap dog, young and trusting of men, women and children. I love to be in your arms or on your lap … between play time, of course! That said, I was apparently not socialized as a pup and I’m very reactive with other dogs. They’re working on introducing me to other dogs, but, for now, I would do best as an only dog, especially with someone who has the energy and experience to teach me to be the awesome dog I was born to be. Age: 1 y/o Weight: 10 lbs Temperament: Great with all people, but prefers to be only pet Vetting: Neutered, up-to-date on vaccines and heartworm negative Contact adopt@doggieharmony.org with questions or complete/send an Adoption Application.

      Posted Breed: Bulldog / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Please contact ADOPTION (adopt@doggieharmony.org) for more information about this pet. Klutch would do best in a calm home with no kids. He loves MEN more so than women -- loves to play and jump around with them, but turns on his quiet side with the ladies. This handsome lad seeks a family who will keep him exercised and give him the boundaries and training that he needs to be a perfect companion. He is happy to learn new tricks for treats and affection. Klutch landed in the shelter as part of a neglect case and was stuck there for three months before his foster 'liberated' him. He is an awesome dog who deserves a loving and forever family.

Margie Sue loves to sunbathe and stroll around the yard in the warm morning sun. She likes to sleep covered up and knows how to cover herself up if you're too tired to tuck her in. She gets along very well with dogs and people of all kinds. Margie is a super-easy gal who is lovable to all who meet her. She's been patiently awaiting her second lease on life since her family surrendered her to a county shelter. Though confused as to why they sent her away after giving them all of her love, she promises it won't stop her from giving you her whole heart! Sweet Margie often forgets she's a little larger than a true rat terrier, we say she's just big-boned (or mixed with a bit of hound). When it comes to selecting a bed, her favorite is usually the smallest one.

I’m an older gal (around 8-10 years) and my hearing and sight aren’t quite what they used to be. But does that hold me down? Heck no! I get around just fine.Just look at my video! I’m house/crate trained, great on a leash and can see shadows and follow your voice just fine. I’m soft ’n fluffy like a teddy bear and very easygoing. My favorite thing to do is just to lounge around the house, but I also enjoy going for walks and checking out my surroundings. (Lizards don’t get past me!) Other dogs are OK, but I would do best as an only dog or with another low-key/older dog like me. My health is pretty good. My rescuers are just working on getting a couple benign cysts removed during a dental. Might as well do all of that stuff at once, but nothing to hold me back from finding my forever home!

Leon is currently attending training at Frogs to Dogs in Kirkwood to help him adjust to life as a tripaw and to continue his socialization with people and pups alike. His adoption fee will include a basic training package with Frogs to Dogs for his new family. This happy boy is anxious to make a permanent connection with family and friends to call his very own!
