Posted Breed: Shepherd / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Heart Video! Heart got to go to work with a volunteer in June 2015, here is a video: Heart Goes to Work! Mama Heart has big ears, but a bigger heart! She is house trained, crate trained and knows quite a few commands. A quick and eager study, she is highly motivated to work for food. Curious Mama Heart is an avid squirrel watcher and loves exploring in the woods. This adventuresome girl would make a great hiking companion, but also appreciates when it's time to relax. Her foster mom says she's "the best snuggler ever" and can't resist a good belly scratch. She would love to find an active family where she would be the only pet, but don't worry, she has enough affection to share with everyone. This playful lady would also do best with older kids who can help expend some of her boundless energy. If this sounds like the pup for you, sweet Mama Heart can't wait to meet you. If you're interested in adopting Heart, please visit our website to learn about our adoption process and to fill out an application, here. All of our dogs will be micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, and up-to-date on vaccinations at the time of adoption.

Gateway Pet Guardians is proud to offer a variety of mixed breed dogs available for adoption.

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: Labrador Retriever / Chow Chow / Mixed. This handsome fella has more going for him than just his good looks. Spicoli is very smart and is quickly learning how to be a great dog. He has already learned Sit, Come, Stay, Wait, Drop, and Off! Spicoli would probably do best in a home with a big fenced in backyard where he could get some of his Lab energy out. He is very talented at playing fetch with tennis balls and leaps to catch objects mid air! We're thinking Frisbee champ for sure! Spicoli is friendly with other dogs but is a little weary when meeting new people. He likes to be able to approach people on his terms but once he does that, you have a friend for life! Who's ready to give Spicoli the life he deserves? If you're interested in adopting Spicoli, please visit our website to learn about our adoption process and to fill out an application, here. All of our dogs will be micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, and up-to-date on vaccinations at the time of adoption.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. It's a bird...it's a plane...no...its DeeDee!! This high-flying girl is not only a fan of the water hose (check out this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W5X-WSoNhow), but she's also lovable, smart and a whole lot of fun! DeeDee is a BIG FAN of toys and she doesn't discriminate. She loves bones, balls (deflated or full), stuffed animals and pull toys. DeeDee has gone on some day hikes and loves the great outdoors! When she isn't playing or showing off her athletic skills, DeeDee is very content to snuggle up on the couch and watch a movie. She just can't get enough love. DeeDee would do best in an active home with older kids (due to her energy). She is a little uncertain around new dogs so we are working on her socialization skills to determine how she would do in a home with other dogs. So who's ready to welcome DeeDee into their family? If you're interested in adopting Dee Dee, please visit our website to learn about our adoption process and to fill out an application, here. All of our dogs will be micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, and up-to-date on vaccinations at the time of adoption.

However, please keep in mind that we rarely know the genetic background of the animals we rescue and, as such, we cannot guarantee the exact breed combinations found within this dog. Further, because "pit bull terrier type dog" is not a breed we can list and because this dog has a blocky head and other characteristics that make the public perceive him/her as a pit bull, we are listing him/her as a pit bull mix. However, we do not know his/her actual genetic makeup. Just know that this dog is probably a variety of several different breeds that have combined to create one very amazing and unique animal.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. This sweet princess is named Saydee. She currently weighs about 60 lbs and is crate trained and house trained. She is great with adults, loves kids, and gets along well with other dogs. Saydee can get very excited when people come over but is lazy and relaxed most times (and loves to sleep on her back!). Her personality can be described as friendly, quiet, and laid back. Saydee enjoys toys and femur bones. Sometimes she can play rough as she doesn't know her own strength, but will soon learn. She already knows commands such as bye bye, sit, outside, and treat. Saydee would do great in a home with older children. Do you have room in your heart & your home for Saydee?

      Location: Saint Louis, MO
      Posted Breed: Husky / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed. This incredibly gorgeous guy is Dodger. He's a sweet boy who is very friendly and has a big, beautiful smile that's contagious. He gets along very well with other dogs. Dodger has requested a home without cats and young children. Dodger is a sweet boy and gives very special hugs - he jumps up and hugs with both front legs. He isn't very interested in toys, but that could change in the future once he gets settled into his forever home. This sweet guy is not just gorgeous, he's also a smart boy who knows his name and how to sit! Dodger likes being outdoors, going for walks, and enjoys going to events with his foster mom where he's well behaved in public. Since Dodger loves to be outside so much a family who is willing to take him on walks and be outside would be ideal. If you have room in your heart & home for this incredibly gorgeous boy, please visit our website to learn about our adoption process and to fill out an application, here. All of our dogs will be micro-chipped, spayed or neutered, and up-to-date on vaccinations at the time of adoption.

I'm a little "gun-shy" when it comes to meeting new people, but once I've identified you as part of my posse, I'm as loving and playful as they come! Since I'm a rough and tough buckaroo I reckon it'd be best if my new homestead didn't have children. I also don't take too kindly to strangers, so my new family would need to understand that when company comes 'round, I may need to retire to my bunk for a while. But hey, this cowboy is a smart boy... I'm crate trained and walk great on a leash. So, why don't you mosey on over to that adoption application and fill it out for me? Giddy up!

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Terrier / Mixed. Meet Boone! The pizza man leaves him a tip... Thunder barks at him... He is...the most interesting dog in the world. Hello darlings. I'm Boone and some call me the most interesting dog in the world. I really don't mind what you call me, as long as you call me baby. You see... I'm looking for my forever home. I guess you can say I'm a ladies man. That's why my foster mom thinks my ideal adoptive family would have one or more low-energy female dogs. I love to hang with the canine ladies and give them the love and attention they deserve. I've also become accustomed to being crated (yes I'm crate trained) next to my female friends, so my new family will have to work with me to get the set up just right. When I'm not giving the ladies some 'Boone Love', I enjoy playing with select toys and eating tennis balls (I guess that's why I haven't seen one of those in awhile)! I also enjoy lounging with my favorite humans. I pretend they taught me "sit" and "come"; it gives them a sense of accomplishment. Obviously, since I'm one of the most interesting dogs in the world, I carry around some battle scars. I have a slight limp (just give me a cane and fedora) and a cataract in one eye. But I don't let either stop me. All I need is one eye to keep on the ladies! I actually asked my foster mom for an eye patch once, but she says I'll just eat it. I think she knows how cool I'll look and she's jealous. So I guess the question is, are you ready to share your home with the most interesting dog in the world? I'm ready if you are!

That's me - Jelly, and as my name implies I'm a sweet, fun girl. It's true; I can be a little shy at first. But with proper introductions and a little love, I wiggle right out of my jar. My perfect "peanut butter" home would be gentle, friendly, patient, and moderately active. I would do best in a home without children as I sometimes give mixed signals and play a lot. And please, no cats. Just like some people have a preference for creamy or chunky peanut butter, I just prefer other dogs and humans who are experienced pet owners to cats and small critters :). I'm a smart girl, and I already know sit, off, and leave it; I'm learning to play ball; and I'm almost fully house trained. I also know that once I find my furever home, I will definitely sweeten up any gloomy day!! You can find a video of Jelly practicing leave it here!. Can you be the peanut butter to my jelly??

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Labrador Retriever Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Saint Louis, MO
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed. "Stranger-danger" is what Ellie thinks when she first meets someone, and let's face it, if you watch the news, you can appreciate her reserve. But that's her only minor offense, and with the help of a little string cheese, she quickly learns to trust; then she's ready to walk nicely on her leash or play Frisbee. An active singleton or couple who like to relax at home would be ideal for this girl since she enjoys exercise but prefers a low-key household. If there's another dog already in residence, that's a bonus because Ellie loves to play with her canine buddies. Because she was on the streets for a long time, she has a high prey drive and would do best in a home without cats. Confidence and patience are what this gorgeous girl needs in her adopter, and she promises to repay those qualities with loyalty, companionship, and love. Ellie is house trained, crate trained (but she's also non-destructive outside of her crate), and would like to live with just adults because they're not as strange and unpredictable as kids. Could your home be the perfect fit? If you're interested in adopting Ellie, please visit our website to learn about our adoption process and to fill out an application, GatewayPets.com!. All of our dogs will be micro-chipped, spayed or neutured, and up-to-date on vaccinations at the time of adoption.

Since you're here, let me tell you a little bit more about myself. My name is Baby Bella, or just Bella for short, and in addition to being super cute, I'm really smart. I know "sit" and "down" and am quick to pick up routines and schedules. I'm also house and crate trained. But enough with that boring junk, let's get to the good stuff! My foster mom calls me "spunky" because of how much fun I like to have. I love to play with other dogs...even though I'm still learning when they want to play with me. But if there isn't another pup around, I am easily entertained with my toys. I love toys. I probably love tennis balls the most, but that just because I am a BIG FAN of fetch. Once I tire from playing I like to snuggle and give kisses with my humans. How perfect am I? So I guess I should get to the point and let you know that I am looking for my perfect forever home. Since I have a lot of energy I think I would do best in a home with another dog who likes to play or an active family who will play fetch with me. Since I am so smart, I know I could learn to be the best dog ever! Why not give me a whirl?
