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. Meet your new best friend 11 to 3 Sunday, March 19, in the Kirkwood Petco at I-44 and Lindbergh. To see which dogs are available, go Here.
I'd like you to meet my five foster dogs. Rocket, Lincoln, Spock, The Dude and Ginger.
Rocket, above, is "special needs" because of his skin allergies. He came to us with a raw, red chest and other inflamed areas on his skin. Now on a special diet and medication, he is becoming quite handsome. He's a slightly shy guy who loves being on or near you but needs time before he'll come when called. He'll need a new owner with patience and a willingness to keep him on a special dog food. He's worth it. We think he's a rat terrier mix.
Spock the little rat terrier is back with me after his second failed adoption. Seems he occasionally puts on blustery teeth-baring shows when he's afraid. Weird maybe, but not dangerous. All for show. Little dog syndrome? And most of the time he's a sweet, little lap dog. In the right environment -- quiet? only dog maybe? -- he'll stick with his smiling side. Spock originally came to us as a stray. Here he is.
My newest foster is Lincoln, a five year old hound mix. He's big and goofy and all around wonderful. He gets along with other dogs and seems friendly to cats. He rides well in a car and does fine on walks. We love him here and think you will too. We originally had Lincoln as a puppy. He came back because his former owner could no longer keep him. Here he is.
Finally, here are my two other fosters. The Dude and Ginger are easy, middle-sized dogs -- both perfect in every way. The Dude is about 9 years old. Ginger is estimated at five years. First The Dude, followed by Ginger.
Let's hear if for these dog. They all need homes.
