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! 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.

    • Maltese-Unknown Mix Dog For Adoption in Kansas City, MO, USA

      Olaf

      rescue
      Breed: Maltese-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie / Maltese / Mixed (long coat). Please read this bio as Olaf is a special needs dog. Olaf is a sweet handsome Morkie about 2 years old. Olaf is a puppy mill dog. He has lead a life of breeding with not a lot of human interaction. Olaf is very scared of humans cornering him and picking him up. Once he is up in your arms however, he does calm down and snuggle into you. He is going to take a ton of patience from his new owner and a lot of time to feel safe and come around at his own pace. Olaf is NOT a dog for everyone. I am not sure many people understand what it means to take on a puppy mill dog. It will break your heart to see how scared he is....but it will also fill your heart with joy as he slowly starts dropping those fears and settling into his new life with time, patience and love. I'll be honest here. We are not going to adopt him to just anyone. We will continue to work with him here for as long as it takes until the right home comes along. A home that understands that he is not a normal dog and may never be what they would consider a "normal" dog. A home that understands the time and commitment these dogs require. A home that understands this is a process that cannot be rushed and may take months or even years before he is able to come to you and ask to be picked up. A home that understands that Olaf will teach them a new definition of a "normal"dog. Now...so that we know you have read this bio and understand that she is a special dog...please write the code word Frozen when inquiring about him or on your application for her somewhere. Our online application can be found at kcpaws.petfinder.com OLAF WILL BE SHOWN BY APPOINTMENT ONLY AFTER RECEIPT OF AN ONLINE APPLICATION

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Baby
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Red Heeler / Cattle Dog / Mixed (short coat). Freckles will be shown by appointment only upon receipt of our online application which can be found at kcpaws.petfinder.com Meet Freckles! Freckles is a 10 to 12 month old (as of 6/9) heeler mix. She is very sweet and still a wiggly puppy. Freckles gets along fine with other dogs, but like all dogs of this breed mix she does nip at their heels and herds them so she plays a little rough. These dogs do require a fair amount of exercise so she will need to go to an active family who enjoy walks and playing in the yard.

      Rumor

      rescue
      Breed: Boxer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      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. 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

      Breed: Beagle-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Sparky is about 2 years old and around 20 pounds. He's a playful guy who loves to wrestle, cuddle, and be with his people. He does fine with other dogs and is a happy energetic loving boy! Sparky was teased and abused by children in the past and has learned that children can hurt him and be rough with him so he does not like children. This does not mean if you have grandchildren that come over on occasion that you cannot adopt Sparky. He would be perfectly happy to go in a back bedroom or in his kennel while the children are visiting. It would not hurt his feelings at all. Sparky is going to make a wonderful companion for someone, he's a great little boy! Sparky's adoption fee is $150. If you are interested in Sparky, please complete our online application which can be found at kcpaws.petfinder.com or contact Jenifer at adoptashelterpet@hotmail. com This is a courtesy post for an individual or group seeking a new home for Sparky. Sparky is not part of the PAWS program.

      Fido

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Chiranian
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian / Chihuahua / Mixed (medium coat). Fido is an adorable 5 year old Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix weighing about 15lbs. Fido has had a rough life thus far and was removed from his prior home by animal control on cruelty charges. He appears to have had a very abusive past. Like only dogs can do well....Fido has let go of that past horrible life and is embracing his new life as a well loved boy! The scars of his past are still present though in some ways and he is nervous meeting new people and needs a little time to warm up to them. He is uncomfortable to being picked up at first as well and particularly nervous about someone approaching and trying to pick him up or pet him with 2 hands. He has learned that some people are nice and he is willing to trust again. He loves us and is quite affectionate and loving, but it will take time to build that trust with a new person. No kids for Fido. He needs someone willing to go slow and shower him with kindness and gentleness because he hasn't had much of that in his lifetime.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      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. This is a courtesy post for an individual or group seeking a new home for Petunia. Petunia is not part of the PAWS program. Photo courtesy of Fix Your Images Photography, fixyourimages.com

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      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.
