Dutch

Dutch is a friendly and playful guy. He likes to play with soccer balls. He gets along with other dogs, loves attention from his human friends, and is housebroken. Dutch will need continued leash and obedience training to  help him learn good manners.

Dutch is five years old and weighs 50 pounds.

Dutch’s adoption fee is $200; he is microchipped, neutered, and up to date on vaccines.

Dutch has heartworms and will be going through heartworm treatment. Dutch would greatly benefit from having a quiet home to recuperate in rather than trying to rest in a noisy and stressful shelter environment. If you would like to provide a foster home, or foster-to-adopt home, during Dutch’s heartworm treatment, Helping Strays will provide everything you need; the medical care, crate, food, etc. Foster-to-adopt would be a great way to get to know Dutch. Finalizing the adoption would be done once treatment is complete.

Bear

Bear is looking for a hospice home to live out the rest of his days. He will need some special care but Helping Strays will take care of the cost if you can give him love and a great home.

Bear has a neurological deficiency and possibly a tumor or brain lesion. He could have possibly had a stroke before coming to Helping Strays but there is no way to know  without doing an MRI and we do not have the funds. He is heartworm positive  but we are not going to treat him because of his age (12-14) and other problems. He runs into walls and doors, sometimes falls, seems very spacey, his tongue is always hanging out, and just seems a little off. Despite all these symptoms, he eats well and gets along with other mellow dogs. We were hoping to get him in a hospice home with a patient human to help him through his last days – whatever time he has. We are hoping this person will not be afraid to tell us that it is time if he continues to decline.

Bear is a happy guy who loves everyone including other dogs and children.  He is neutered and up to date on vaccines.

Please contact Helping Strays if you can help Bear.  618-939-7389

Nelson

Nelson is one of our extra-ordinary pets. He is seeking a quiet home with a caregiver ready to accept the special challenges he faces. Nelson is lacking social skills and is fearful of new places and people. In his foster home, Nelson is learning to trust and work through some of his social needs. However, there is no learning curve when it comes to other canines… Nelson LOVES other dogs! He frolics and prances when there are other dogs for him to play with. Nelson finds comfort in his crate and often uses it as his ‘safe’ place if he is stressed. He still does not feel comfortable walking on a leash and will need a well-secured home with a fence. Nelson is slowly making progress and with the right family he will continue to come out of his shell. Nelson has lots of love to give to someone with the patience to help him trust.

Journey

Journey is a handsome guy with a lot of personality.  He enjoys car rides, playing fetch, and is easy to walk. Journey is crate trained, house trained, and knows how to use the dog door.  He is very smart, snugly, treat motivated, and once in a household easily adapts to his surroundings. Journey is a talker, he can be laid back or playful.  Journey would do best with a female dog that does not like to play too much.  It doesn’t take him long and he is ready to go to his own space and do what he wants to.  He would like a smaller family with not too much activity, an adult household would be the best.  Journey loves to lay in the sunshine and chill, when he goes in his kennel a kong with some pumpkin and dog food is his favorite.  With Journey too much dairy makes his tummy upset.  He also enjoys his frisbee that hangs in his kennel with peanut butter.  If you want to know more about Journey, fill out the application.  His foster Mom would be glad to talk to you and arrange a meet.

Journey is five years old and weighs 70 pounds. Be sure to watch Journey’s video.

His adoption fee is $200; he is microchipped, neutered, and up to date on vaccines.
