Posted Breed: Beagle / Shih Tzu / Mixed (long coat). Jasmine is an absolutely adorable roughly 6 year old Shih Tzu/Beagle mix. She is very sweet and very vocal and loves to talk to you. Jasmine is a special needs dog and we are seeking a very special home for her. Jasmine's past life was not wonderful. She did live in a home with a family that for the most part left her outside. Because she was not inside, they never noticed she had a bladder infection and it went untreated for years. When she came to us she was peeing straight blood and was rushed into emergency surgery to remove a half dollar sized bladder stone. We thought everything was fine and her life could move forward from there but that was not to be. Because of her years of neglect additional stones had formed in her urethra and she has had to undergo two additional surgery's one of which was an experimental surgery on her actual urethra. Jasmine is a fighter and she has come through everything with flying colors. Because of the extensive surgery's and the damage that was irreparable to her urethra Jasmine will need to be able to potty whenever she feels the urge and she will likely always have blood in her urine and pass blood clots frequently. She is piddle pad trained but does also have some times when she just can't make it to the piddle pad in time. She will require a special diet that promotes urinary health and she will likely be on antibiotics for the rest of her life. She will need frequent urine testing as well to make sure no infection has returned. Now having said all the bad things....let me tell you how wonderful she is. She's happy and bouncy and loves to play with other dogs. She's also bossy and a big drama queen but I think she deserves to be a drama queen after all she's gone through. She's adorable and she LOVES to go on walks and lay in the grass. She talks to you all the time as well and lets you know if there are any strangers around so she'd make a great watch dog. Jasmine DOES require grooming as she has the Shih Tzu hair that will continue to grow and become matted. Grooming is needed about every 4 months or so. We are looking for a special home for this special lady so she can finally see what it is like to live the life of a pampered pooch. We require a completed application prior to setting up an appointment to meet our pets. Our online application can be found at kcpaws.petfinder.com

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.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Kansas City, MO
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Bonnie is an adorable 1 to 2 years old Shepherd mix as our best guess. She is tall and thin like a super model and weighs about 45lbs. Bonnie is great with other dogs and is very playful. She is sweet with people and flops over on her back for you to rub her tummy when you go to pet her. Bonnie is energetic and still has a lot of puppy left in her so we believe she'd due best in a home with older children as she's likely to knock over smaller children in her enthusiasm to see them. If you are interested in Bonnie, please contact Jenifer at adoptashelterpet@hotmail.com This is a courtesy post for an individual or group seeking a new home for Bonnie. Bonnie is not part of the PAWS program. Photo courtesy of Fix Your Images Photography, Fix Your Images.com

      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Look at that face! How can you not fall in love with Joker? Joker is an incredibly adorable sweet Beagle/Terrier mix who is about six years in age. Joker is not super small but not large either weighing in at about 40lbs. He is one of those dogs that is just happy and full of life! He LOVES to play and will zoom around the back yard at a hundred miles an hour play. He's just one of those dogs you can't help but fall in love with the minute you see him! Joker will need a loving but firm active family that will make sure he knows boundary's and limitations as he is a terrier and needs to know that we humans are the ones in charge. We do not suggest Joker goes to a family with children under the age of 7. Joker is housebroken and is ready to come home and entertain you and brighten your life!

      Breed: Boxer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Kansas City, MO
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Rumor is an adorable 3 to 4 year old Boxer mix. We know she's a Boxer mix because we also had her mother Demi who is a Boxer. Mom has been adopted now and we aren't sure who dad was although we suspect he was a cattle dog mix of some kind based on those crazy ears and her body build. Rumor is just as sweet as she can be. She has never met a stranger. She and her mom Demi were seized in the field for neglect by animal control and both were quite skinny when they arrived. Rumor gets along well with some large dogs but does seem to not appreciate small dogs. She would do best as an only pet or in a home without small dogs or cats.

      Sex: Male Male

      Location: Kansas City, MO
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Baxter is an adorable Pit/Boxer mix, perhaps Lab/Pit mix. Baxter is about two years old and is a goofy big ole puppy. He is a happy go lucky sort of boy, but can be protective of his people. He still has a lot of his puppy energy and still needs to learn a few manners. We think he'd be great with kids but because of his energy level, and lack of manners... we think he'd do best in a home without smaller children because he likely would bowl them over with his enthusiastic greetings. Baxter does like some other dogs but not all dogs. He would do best with a female companion who has a rough and rowdy playstyle like he does. He may be a bit overwhelming to an older dog with his desire to play but would be great with another young playful dog.

      Location: Kansas City, MO
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Petunia is an adorable small Pit Bull Terrier who is just as sweet as she can be. She was found as a stray and brought into the shelter with painted toenails so we know she was someone's baby at some point but they never came to the shelter to find her. Petunia is a young girl around 18 months in age and still has a lot of puppy left in her, she's happy and excited when she meets you but does calm down and loves to have her belly rubbed. Petunia does fine with some dogs and is playful. She can be a leash reactive on walks however. Petunia is ready to find her forever home....maybe one that will paint those toenails again for her and treat her like the princess she is! If you are interested in Petunia, please contact Jenifer at adoptashelterpet@hotmail.com or complete our online application which can be found at kcpaws.petfinder.com and we will forward it on.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Kansas City, MO
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Monte is a sweet happy go lucky terrier mix around 10 years old Monte is a great boy, he's happy, housebroken and gets along fine with other dogs but is somewhat selective in who he'd like to be his doggy companion. He'd be great as an only dog or as a companion to a laid back dog as Monte, understandably doesn't like a dog that gets up in his face and bugs him....who can blame him? Monte is not a super small boy, he's on the larger side of small weighing in the neighborhood of 20lbs....about the size of a Schnauzer (which he might be partly). While Monte loves his people he is going to need an adjustment period going into a new home as he get anxious in new situations. He'd love to be a dog with stay at home parents that would love to shower him with attention. If you are interested in giving this sweet boy a new home, please contact Jenifer at adoptashelterpet@hotmail.com This is a courtesy post for an individual or group seeking a new home for Monte. Monte is not part of the PAWS program although he is currently housed with us at our facility. PAWS holds no responsibility for this sweet boy.

      Location: Kansas City, MO
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Senior Pit Bull looking for that forever home.Edna is around 9-10 years old. She is a lover with people and good with other dogs. Edna had a sad life before being found by animal control. From what I've been told she was found dragging a chain and tangled in a fence behind an abandoned business. She was emaciated. She hadn't known much kindness and was heartworm positive. She has beaten the odds. She survived her heartworm treatment and is doing good! We had an echocardiogram done on her because our vet was worried about her heart and the results were ok. Her heart is slightly enlarged and she has an enlarged artery but since the worms are gone she won't get any worse. So she's OK! She loves her crate and LOVES food. She is very food motivated. Edna is good with other dogs, but she can be possessive of food and bedding, especially at first, when it comes to other dogs. With people she is just a love bug. She just wants to be fed, cuddled, and given a soft place to sleep If you are interested in Edna, please complete the online application or contact Jenifer at adoptashelterpet@hotmail.com This is a courtesy post for an individual or group seeking a new home for Edna Photo courtesy of Fix Your Images Photography, fixyourimages.com
