This is a story about a dog and her blankie.
Laila’s been with me for 6 months now and hasn’t been too attached to any item yet. Her first dog bed she humped to death so I wasn’t in a big hurry to replace it. And I have lots of old blankets for her kennel and random doggie nesting (swipe to see her occasional attachment to my dorm comforter). Fast forward to shopping with Rex, and I find the softest blanket, on clearance. I have plenty of blankets, I don’t need it. Rex convinced me I need it for Laila... I was skeptical but loved the blanket...
And I’ll be doggoned, he was completely right! She sleeps peacefully with it on my bed, and tonight she pulled it out to lounge in the living room. SHE LOVES IT! Snuggles on it, wraps up on it, chews on it, and I did see her hump it once 😆 Swipe all the way through the pics, you won’t be sorry! #lailalemon
🛑137 days homeless!🛑 Hello all, Brewer here and it's a pleasure to make your acquaintance. I am a good looking dude just on the prowl for his forever family. Could that be you? Keep reading and let's find out!
I am a happy and curious dude that is looking for a family that I could take some walks with and explore together. I am pretty low key, so after our walk I would love to come inside and chill out.
I am described as also being very sweet and I would love to share my sweetness with you. I know the command sit and can show you for the small price of some yummy treats.
What do you say, do you think we're a match?
⚠️185 days homeless!⚠️ Personality Plus! Not only does he have a great personality, but he has the most beautiful eyes! Beppo spent time in the clinic before becoming available for adoption. That's where I met him and I must say he wasn't happy being in his kennel. But this boy has really bloomed with consistent care and love. He is much better about leaving his kennel with a normal pace instead of acting like his tail is on fire. I fell in love with Beppo the night we stayed in a play yard.
This energetic goof ball loves to play ball; fetch, roll on his back and rub up for a hinney rub. But the best part is he is sooooo good with sit and gently taking treats. He is pretty good with stay and bolts like lightening when the command "come" has a treat waiting for him. We played for a very long time and he was awesome and made me laugh a lot.
So if you want a spunky boy that is already trained but can learn lots more and will be your entertainment and love - look for Beppo.
🛑183 days homeless!🛑 Hi there everybody, my name is Arnold and I'm like the Betty White of seniors. What does that mean you ask? Well I'm a senior guy, but I sure don't act my age (just like Betty!). Also just like Betty, everyone loves me here at the shelter, they've even called me a babe.
Some of the things I like include long walks in the woods, exploring and going on adventures and meeting new people. I even greet new people with enthusiasm, what a catch right? I'm a smart cookie and I know how to sit on command.
I've gotten some pretty rave reviews from the people I know around the shelter. They say that I am very social and want to go up and greet all the people. Tiny humans make me a bit nervous so I'd prefer a mostly adult home. I want to take all your attention for myself so if you have other doggos at home I need to visit with them before adoption to make sure they're good with sharing you!
So if you think I'm your guy, come check me out because I'm ready to go to my forever home! Email firstname.lastname@example.org
🚨279 Days homeless!🚨 Hello! My name is Tanner aka Tan the Man! I can be a bit shy at first, but once I warm up to you, I promise I'll love you!
Not to brag or anything, but I'm super smart!! I catch onto things real quick! I have learned sit and lay down and capable of learning so much more! I will do practically anything for treats(the bacon ones are my favorite)! I am dog social. If you have another dog please bring them to meet me just so we see if we're compatible. I would do best with a dog that has a lot energy because I LOVE playing! If you bring me to a dog park, I could stay there for hours! I also walk great on leash. I would love to become your new best friend!
If you're interested in meeting me, contact KC Pet Project at email@example.com or call 816-513-9821 and we can set up a meet and greet!
390 days homeless! 👀💔 Snuggle game on point!
This handsome blonde is Darwin, and he is the biggest snuggle bum you'll ever meet!
Not only will he snuggle you like a pro, he needs to be snuggled back, and he will make you feel so loved, your heart may just explode. He likes to lay his head on your chest and gaze into your eyes. You can actually feel his admiration, and it's so heartwarming.
Everything about him is so very special and endearing. From the way his lips don't touch when his mouth is closed causing his crooked little bottom teeth to stick out, to the way he doesn't seem to realize his head can't fit through the door as soon as it's open only 3 inches. Or the way he longingly watches you from across the room, so patiently, just waiting for you to acknowledge him for an opportunity to snuggle. Or the way he presses his nose against your chin, as he rests his head on your chest.
Or how about the fact that he's been waiting more than 3 years for a family, since the young age of 2, and he still is just perfect! The countless nights spent living in the chaotic and stressful environment of a shelter, he's so appreciative of the comfort and care from the home environment again, that he treats you with perfect manners, unmatched love, and being the best companion you could ever hope for.
Darwin is a sensitive, loving and well trained boy. He has great manners and doesn't jump on people. He's potty/house-trained. He's kennel trained and actually loves his kennel, in fact, if you say kennel, you best clear the way or he might run you over trying to get there. He's super responsive to any direction given. He loves toys and is playful and fun too!
Check out his video here for glimpse of all his amazing qualities: https://youtu.be/5_p4I4ll-RY
I think fall is the perfect time to add a new snuggle buddy to your life and Darwin loves to cuddle up under the blankets with you. He will make the absolute best companion ever and show you more love than you ever knew possible!
Hi there! My name is Una (YOU-NUH). Pretty great name, but as for the meaning it has to do with my adorable and unique una-toe (trust me you have to see it in person to appreciate it!). I am a younger gal that has been able to hang out in a foster home where the people there really got to know me.
My foster family says that I am really a sweet girl that has some energy, but really I just like to lay next to the couch and be close to my people. I really really love kongs and peanut butter, they are my favorite! I'm pretty good on my leash and do a good job of letting you lead. When I first get out of my kennel, I like to go for a walk to get my wiggles out, then I plop down and sleep until you tell me not to. I have a sweet face and an ever sweeter heart. I’ve been around young kids and I’m great with them. I’m curious about cats, but lucky for them I don’t chase them!
If you're interested in meeting me to see if I'm the one for you, email firstname.lastname@example.org! I'll be waiting for you!
Slumber Party! BYOB - Bring your own blanket!
So yeah, I'm having a slumber party at your place, but instead of one night it's forever.....I know....I know....you're thinking it's not nice to invite yourself to someone else's home, but you'll barely notice I'm there. Seriously, I'm so low maintenance I'll never wear my welcome out.
I'm Bear and I'm a super chill dude just looking for another chill buddy. I just require a comfy bed to nap on, and lots of blankets. You don't even have to tuck me in, I'm a pro at covering myself up! I don't require a kennel either, foster mom lets me roam free all day and I do just fine.
I'm not really looking to have a wild and crazy party, just a few of us because new people take a bit for me to get used to, so a low traffic, quiet kind of get together is more my style. First, we'll chill on the couch, watching movies and eating snacks, because I do perk up for snacks, then we might take a short stroll, but not too far, because I've got some arthritis in my back legs. Then you, me and our blankets will head to bed for the night, where I may or may not lay on top of you. But not the first night probably, I'll still be getting used to you then.
Once I'm fully comfy with you, I'll show you some excitement when I'm happy to see you, or when we play tug for a little while, but I'm really happiest just being in your presence. Give me a chance and a little bit of time and I'll make a great companion.
You can RSVP to my party by emailing my foster mom at email@example.com. If you have other pets at the party, let her know so she can discuss if we'll be able to be friends. Be there or be square!
For the dog fanatics out there, you likely have already visited Bar K Dog Bar, and if not, your dog dream has come true! The canine-loving entrepreneurs behind @barkdogbar have developed one cool and clever concept with an industrial, urban dream setting with recycled shipping containers to perfect the architectural design! Where else can you watch your pooch dash across an off-leash, 2-acre park while your outdoor bartender serves up craft cocktails "for the people" and @beerpaws craft beer for the dogs? Mixologist guru Ryan Maybee created exclusive cocktail selections categorized into "Mutts," "Pure Breds," and "Hair of the Dog." Or, select from beer, wine, coffee, or kombucha while your dog rock climbs, navigates the jungle gym, lounges at the splash pool cabanas, or, my favorite, assists in a game of "Guess Who," with dog characters; of COURSE! Yappy Hour, Puppies Night Out, DOGA, The "Groom-Groom" dog salon, and a favorable food menu focused on healthy/casual options (one of my fav burger-and-fries combo yet!), this membership-enabled Berkley Riverfront neighbor has some pretty amazing intentions in mind when it comes to taking care of our city's pups (look for adoption opportunities!) and our human spirits. Shout out to my best 11 year-old nephew and best bud for contributing some of their photos to my feature!🐶🐕🍺🥣🐾🐩🍔🍟🛤🤙🏻💦🎾🚃🚦🌁🐶#barkdogbar#berkeleyriverfrontpark#kcmo#kc#kansascity#kcdogs#kcdogsofinstagram#kcdog#kcpets#kcpetproject#kcpetclub#kcdogclub#kcdoglife#kansascitydogs#kclife#igkansascity#kcig#kcigers#kcinstagram#instagramkc#kansascityig#dogsofkc#dogsofkcmo#kcrestaurants
