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
  • Breed: Plott Hound Mix
  • Arrived: 5/19/19
  • Previous Home: Kansas City Pet Project, KC MO
  • Available for adoption; in foster

Duce is a brother to Lily, and they were both owner surrenders at KC Pet Project. He is shy, and has anxiety with strangers, but is very loyal and affectionate with his people. He 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 and Lily had little interaction with other dogs, 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.

Joe is a friendly, old gentleman. He was picked up as a stray in Kansas City, KS, and it took some TLC at the Humane Society to return him to health.

  • Age: 12
  • Breed: Terrier mix
  • Arrived: 5/23/20
  • Previous Home: Helping Dogs 4 Paws at a Time Rescue, Moberly MO
  • Available for adoption

Little Lady is an adorable 12 year old terrier. She was picked up as a stray, probably abandoned, in central Missouri. She is blind in the left eye, and her back legs are very stiff. She can still get around fine, though, and is a happy, quiet girl. She gets along great with other dogs. She definitely likes people and company.
