Rory is a 1-2 yr old Chihuahua / Doxy mix. She is shy but super sweet with men, women and older children but scared of younger children. She is house trained and is good with other dogs. She was found with Lorelai and is very dependent on her so we would like for them to be adopted together if possible. They both love to be snuggled up together under a blanket and beside their human.

Sheldon is an 8 yr old male Border Collie/Lab Mix. Hope received a call from Animal Control regarding a dog that they had just picked up who had been hit by a car and needed immediate medical care. Hope responded and rushed Sheldon to a Specialty care hospital in St. Louis where he received the very best of care… Sheldon’s previous owner was never found so now he is looking for a Forever Family to call his very own. He is ok with other dogs but has not engaged in play or rough-housing. He prefers to sit back and just enjoy the scenery.

Arrow, a 5 year old German Shepherd male. He is a BIG boy but oh so gentle with people. He has lots of energy & needs to be reminded once in awhile to mind his manners but he tries very hard to be a good boy
(Arrow may not live in the city of Alton because his owners let him run at large and he killed a 4 lb Yorkie. We still do not know if he meant to as the dog had no bite marks but it is what it is)
He will need to be an only dog and he will only be allowed to go home with an experienced dog handler. He cannot ever be allowed to roam at large again.

She would love to have all the attention she can get, belly rubs, walks, car rides, you name it as long as she is with her person she is happy.
