Adopt Dickens a Treeing Walker #Coonhound in #StLouis #Missouri


This handsome young fellow is Dickens.  He's a three year old Treeing Walker Coonhound at the Humane Society of Missouri in St. Louis.

Dickens is a favorite of animal shelter staff and volunteers and they report he's a happy go lucky guy who wants someone to play with.  He loves toys!  Dickens has lots of that hound curiosity and would love someone who can take him  for long walks and adventures. 

Dickens appears to already be housebroken.  He walks nicely on a leash and already knows sit, down and shake.

Take a look at Dickens adoption video and then contact the HSMO at 314-951-1562. Dickens animal ID number is A570170.


Since 1870, the Humane Society of Missouri has been dedicated to second chances.  They provide a safe and caring haven to animals - large and small - that have been abused, neglected or abandoned.  Their mission is to end the cycle of abuse and overpopulation, assist in creating lasting relations hips between people and animals, offer world-class veterinary care, plus offer pet obedience and behavior programs.  HSMO operates three animal shelters in the St Louis, Missouri, area, plus Longmeadow Rescue Ranch in Union, Missouri, for abused and neglected horses, cows, goats, chickens and other farm animals.

Good News!  8 yr old senior Akita mix, Biggin has been adopted!

Adopt Hansel a #Hound #Pitbull #Puppy @WaysideWaifs in #KCMO


Though I like to think puppies and young dogs find forever homes quickly, the sad truth is that they don't always.  This fellow at Wayside Waifs animal shelter caught my eye and I couldn't resist featuring him and giving him some social media promotion.

That face! Those ears!  What a cutie patootie!

Meet Hansel.  This adorable fellow is a hound / pit bull mix.  At only 9 months he's got lots of fun, puppy energy and the perfect age for training. 

Here's Hansel's adoption message:
Hi, my name is Hansel and I hope you have a trail of bread crumbs leading to your house. You see, I'm a nine-month-old boy who once was lost but now I'm found, well, at least temporarily. What I'm really searching for is my "Forever Home" and then I really will be found. I'm a sweet and cuddly, 46-pound, brown-and-tan Pit Bull Terrier mix with the sweetest face ever.
I'm still a puppy so I've got lots of energy and I love to PLAY. And like some little kids, I like to gobble my food so I could use some training to slow me down a bit at my food bowl and to curb my enthusiasm a bit when I see you want to be with me! Woo hoo-let's go! Training me should be easy because I am treat motivated but because I'm such an enthusiastic boy, I would be better with children five and older. I love being outside running and walking with you. A happy and carefree big puppy, I simply exude with enthusiasm for life.
 A happy-go-lucky young man, I'm such a handsome boy with a personality plus looking for a home. I just know you're looking for me-the one and only Hansel. I must meet all new family members, including canines, before going home. That will be fun, like most everything in my life! My bags are packed. When did you say you were going to pick me up? You won't be sorry. Love, Hansel
