Our Dogs

We’d like you to meet the dogs that live at Shep’s Place. They are the reason for the entire enterprise, and we are proud to share our home with them.


Mr. Duce

* Age: 11

Age: 11 Breed: Plott Hound Mix Arrived: 5/19/19

Previous Home: Kansas City Pet Project, KC MO

Available for adoption; in foster

Duce was an owner surrenders at KC Pet Project. He is shy, and has anxiety with strangers, but is very loyal and affectionate with his people. He has worked with trainers from The Pet Connection to reduce his anxiety, and has greatly improved. He loves to play with toys and go on walks. We believe he had little interaction with other dogs growing up, so he would do best in a home where he was the only pet. If someone is willing to be patient with him, he would be a great companion.

Available for adoption

Xena was a stray whom a friendly passerby saw being abused by some teenagers, and took her in. She was nursed back to health by the good folks at Windy Hill. She is quiet, and understandably a bit timid with newcomers, but warms up quickly. She loves being outdoors, but is also fond of a soft bed. She like walks, and gets along well with other dogs, as long as they aren’t right in her face. She needs kidney diet food, but is otherwise very healthy.
