DCAWS Featured Dogs: GRACIE & POPCORN PEELER

Video Featuring Dogs: GRACIE & POPCORN PEELER (Sister & Brother)

From Petfinder: Gracie (born about 12/1/12) & her brother Popcorn (born about 6/13/13) were two of 23 who were noted to be emaciated on a farm. Their owner had died inside the house and it was quite a while before anyone knew. Apparently their care had been good until then as they are all very sociable, gentle and trusting. Gracie is a beautiful and loving girl, very fond of the other dogs from the farm, and is very high energy. She needs a home where she gets lots of play time and would do best with at least one other compatible dog to play with. When not watched and occupied, she will jump a fence. With all she has been through, she is sometimes frightened of new dogs and doesn’t react well but this does improve if one gives her a chance. She needs the help only a stable and loving home can supply. Her brother, Popcorn has no faults of which we are aware and would make a good pet for someone wanting a mellow large one. Housetraining will need to be done as it is doubtful he has had house dog experience.
From Volunteer Joe R: It would nice to keep these two together in their forever home. Gracie has ‘improved dramatically’ while being at the shelter. She now comes to adoption events with much more self-confidence and less skittishness. She is ready for forever home.

DCAWS Featured Dog: ZEPPLIN

Video Featuring Dog: ZEPPLIN

Zepplin was brought to the shelter by some caring people who had found him in a nearby small town. He was wearing a collar with Zeppllin on it, but there was no phone number of address. He was hungry, dirty and had some recent wounds and his left back leg had been amputated at some time in the past. Despite all that, he was very loving and friendly, grateful for help and very cooperative. When loading in the van to go to the veterinary clinic for his wounds, he licked the volunteer (whom he had never seen before) in the face with seeming love and gratitude. At the clinic, they recognized the dog and the amputation had been done there. Efforts to reach the owner with the information we had led to nothing. Two weeks done the line the owner did surface and said she wanted him back, seeming especially happy that she had a female in heat to mate with him. However, she did not ever come or make contact again. Zepplin has now been neutered and is ready to be someone’s loving companion. Of all the dogs we have had over the years, we can honestly say this is one of the sweetest.

DCAWS Featured Dog: JERRY

Video Featuring Dog: JERRY

Jerry was brought in by animal control and not claimed by anyone. He is obviously a mixed breed. His coloring and markings are Rottweiler, his build like a boxer, his personality hound dog, but he is shorter than any of those breeds. Whatever his genetics, Jerry is a fine fellow. He recently marked in a parade and did very well. He enjoyed himself immensely and was happy to greet all who wanted to pet him. Jerry has a positive attitude and embraces life with joy. He is good with other dogs. For someone wanting a lively, loving, loyal family member, Jerry would be a good choice. Jerry would greatly benefit from an active family or young couple. It is my opinion, Jerry has been overlooked due to his physical weight. Jerry needs to lose some weight. Jerry is a very ‘fun loving dog’ looking to experience home life. Please consider Jerry! Born about 4/15/11

DCAWS Featured Dog: TRIXIE

Video Featuring Dog: Trixie

This past adoption event was “special” for one particular shelter dog named Trixie. Trixie has been at our shelter for 3 years. We suspect a past history of human abuse on this girl. At our shelter it takes time for abused dogs to regain trust, in both shelter staff people and the general public. While at the shelter this period of “re-adjustment” can be a tire some job. These types of dogs can be labeled “high risk dogs” and may never see a STL adoption event. But this past adoption event was Trixie’s first STL Petsmart adoption event. Perhaps now the label of “high risk dog” can be removed from Trixie and she will be a regular visitor to STL Petsmart adoption events so she too can find her forever home as many others from our group have succeeded. She obviously enjoyed the day, had a blast, behaved on the ride there and back and had a big grin and wagging tail all day long. And, as you can see, she is very beautiful.

DCAWS Featured Dog: Doonby

Link

Doonby was adopted when he was young, his family did not spend a lot of time with him and was returned. Doonby, is now 4 years old and is currently being fostered by one of DCAWS’ best foster dad in Phil Adams. Phil says “Doonby is completely different away from an adoption event’. At adoption events Doonby is very scared and frightened with all the loud noises during an adoption event. He also prefers dogs do not get up into his face. Doonby is a very affection and quiet boy during adoption events and is very well behaved. Phil is an amazing foster dad, as he has brought many of his foster dogs to doggie day care. We are hoping someone out there will take a chance on Doonby and give him as much love as his foster dad Phil has given him. Shy and timid dogs often get overlooked at adoption events. It takes a “special person” to give these type of dogs a chance to succeed and to grow their self-confidence. Can you be that “special person” for Doonby?

Any inquires will be directed to Doonby’s foster dad.
