Adoption Ever After
Meet Glover! He is currently in St. Louis, Missouri and is 2-3 years old. This mellow guy would do well in a home without small dogs and with older kids. He loves lots of cuddles and would love an owner that is on the laid-back side. For more information please visit: ICareSTL.org.
Also today, Larissa introduces 4 week old Hocus Pocus who is a “Pomsky” which is a mix of a Pomeranian and Husky! He is only about 4 pounds but will grow to weigh 20 pounds. He was originally bred to go to a puppy store, but because he has a bit of an underbite he was rejected. Hocus Pocus can be a little shy at first but warms up quickly and would do best with a family who will keep him moving at the park, the lake or even the dog park.
