Visit to the Rolla Animal Shelter

We visit the Rolla Animal Shelter as often as we can to get pictures of the animals needing adoption, and ...well, to play with the dogs and cats of course! Normally, I have a lady who is a trainer that goes with me, but she wasn't able to go this time. So... I worked with the dogs and took photos, (that can be a little rough), but I had a blast and got a few good photos to show off these lovely critters that are looking for their forever homes. We didn't have time to get the cats out, but managed to get a few pics of them anyway.

I couldn't figure out what to call this little guy.  He is a mixed breed adult male.   Not neutered.  Very friendly, comes when you call him and will sit on command, but gets right back up.  Very well mannered.   He got super excited when I grabbed the leash, loves to walk with you and he wants to go everywhere and explore everything.

I called this one....EARS!  Those ears are huge.  This is a male and if I remember right, he is neutered.   Ears tried stealing my heart quickly. He walks great on a leash, comes when I call him instantly, sits on command.   He will sit by you forever and let you pet him.    Loves his back shoulders scratched.   Loves treats, and takes them very gently.   He has the personality of a classy gentleman, not in your face love me, but will sit by your side and take all the attention he can get.

I called this one Bear. I don't know why, but...he came when I called him that, so it worked.   He is has not been neutered.  Very friendly and playful.  He apparently doesn't get along well with other dogs.  I believe he is fine with cats.  He has a bit of a dominant side when it comes to other dogs.   Very, very friendly and full of energy.  He needs some leash work.   When I first brought him out, he wouldn't sit on command but after playing with him a bit, he sat fine.  He is another one that wants to go for walks and explore.  When I took him back to his pen, he knew right where to go, walked in and sat down.  Check out that face.  He only has the 2 brown markings, the one on his face and one on his rear.  His tail, when relaxed is a perfect fluffy curl.

I call him Dach for short.  Super sweet and very loving.   He just sat by me most of the time.   I had to clean the camera lens a few times, shoved his nose right up for it.   Loves to be petted.   This little guy just needs a family so he can have someone to sit by so he can get some lovin!

Dying to go back and play with this little girl.  She is solid black, beautiful.  Hopefully she isn't there my next time back because she has found a loving home!
