The St. Louis Senior Dog Project is a not-for-profit dog rescue organization specializing in older dogs but taking in and finding homes for dogs of all ages...even puppies. See our adoptable dogs Here. We will have dogs at the Kirkwood Petco near I-44 and Lindbergh 11 to 3 Saturday/Sunday, July 2 and 3rd.
That's Freedom up there, and he does have reason to celebrate. He's a 7-year-old lab mix who made it out of the local animal shelter alive and is now groomed and ready for a new home. He's been to the vet, had his teeth cleaned,shots given and been praised as a wonderful, healthy boy.
We have Freedom today because of adoptions from last weekend. Because Curtis had adopted out one of his foster dogs, Roscoe, he now had room for another and selected from dogs at risk. We also took out another dog, Kiwi, from the same shelter because Tracy said she had room.
And we're looking at a long list of other requests and at a number of shelter dogs. I'll be bringing home one or two more in the next week -- maybe more if all goes well.
Meanwhile I look around my place and I see "scruffy." Everywhere I look I see a boy dog that should be named Scruffy. One of them's even my own dog Benny (aka Benny my Love). But I also have Frankie here for the week, plus Scrappy and Tigger. Pictures follow in order of mention, and I might say that scruffy is not a bad look. I try for it myself sometimes. It doesn't require must effort.
For the record, Benny and Tigger are Affenpinschers. Frankie and Scrappy are probably Cairn Terriers or mixes. And if those aren't scruffy enough for you, here's the other scruffy dog in our group (and fortunately in a nother foster home). This is Tubbs.
And I don't really know what he is other than scruffy and probably trouble too. But these five scruffy boys together and you'll be laughing and crying both. You can see trouble in their eyes. And love too.
Except for Benny, all are available for adoption.
