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.

Suzie Q
  • Age: 12
  • Breed: Pointer Mix
  • Arrived: 7/9/20
  • Previous Home: Olathe Animal Control
  • Available for Adoption

Suzie is a happy, friendly girl who craves human company. She lived with an older woman and two cats, but her owner had to move to a nursing home. She spent several months in a shelter before coming to Shep’s. She is still an active dog, and loves to go on walks. She mostly wants to be where you are at, and to look out the window. A genuine sweetheart.

Kisses anyone?

Callie shares a smile
  • Age: 12
  • Breed: Chow Chow / Husky (?) mix
  • Arrived: 6/6/20
  • Previous Home: Gladstone MO Animal Shelter
  • Available for Adoption

Callie is a gentle, friendly girl. She has weak knees, so she walks slowly, but she gets around fine. She is very low-maintenance, mild and quiet. She loves human companionship, and just wants to be where you’re at. And she’s a great kisser! She would make a wonderful family member.

Little Lady

Howdy, Little Lady!
  • 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 integrated with Pepper and Zena within a day, so she gets along great with other dogs. She definitely likes people and company.

Our smiling Little Lady.

Lucy Goosey
  • Age: 14
  • Breed: Beagle
  • Arrived: 7/16/20
  • Previous Home: Old Drum & Friends Rescue, Warrensburg MO
  • Not available for adoption

Lucy is a sweet, gentle old lady. She was found as a stray on a country road near Warrensburg. She has had a stroke, so has some trouble walking, but she’s still alert and active, and enjoys wandering the house and play yards. She is friendly with all the other dogs, and LOVES to be rubbed. Everyone loves her.
