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 their home with them.


  • Age: 11
  • Breed: Plott Hound Mix
  • Previous Home: KC Pet Project
  • Arrived: 5/19/19
  • In Foster, Available for Adoption

Duce was an owner surrender.  He is shy, and has anxiety with strangers, but is very loyal and affectionate with his people.  He has worked with trainers 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.


  • Age: 9

  • Weight: 30 lb
  • Previous Home: Humane Society of Ray County, Richmond MO

Barney is a warm, outgoing boy who loves people and walks.  He is still healthy and active.  Unfortunately, he has spent the majority of his life in a shelter, so we are happy to show him what a home is like.

Teddy & Ginger

  • Breed: Dachshund Weight: 10 / 15 lb

Teddy and Ginger are a bonded pair of dachshunds. They have lived together their whole lives, with an older lady who passed away recently. They want to be with people at all times, and are very affectionate and friendly.

Angie & Sammy

  • Ages: 13 / 13
  • Breed: Yorkie / Chihuahua mix
  • Weight: 15 / 12 lb
  • Previous Home: Midwest Animal ResQ, Raytown MO
  • Arrived: 5/21/21
  • Available for adoption

Angie (the blonde) and Sammy (black & white) are a bonded pair, who have spent their whole lives together.  They are still active and energetic, and love snuggling on the couch, or poking around the yard.  They have lost all their teeth, so they have to eat soft food, and Sammy is blind.  Most of all, they are so stinkin’ cute!


  • Ages: 13
  • Breed: Labrador
  • Weight: 45 lb
  • Previous Home: Helping Hands Human Society, Topeka KS
  • Arrived: 6/4/21
  • Available for adoption

Chubbles is a calm, gentle soul, one of the sweetest, mellowest dogs you’ll ever meet.  She has arthritis in her back hips, so she moves around slowly, and shouldn’t go on long walks.  But she still loves walking around the play yard, following her person and joining in with the group.  She is quiet and a bit shy, but affectionate.  She gets along well with other dogs, but may get pushed aside by more active ones.  She would be a great companion for a less active person who wants a low-energy, loving friend.


  • Age: 10
  • Breed: Husky/Shepherd mix
  • Weight: 94 lb
  • Previous Home: Independence MO Animal Shelter
  • Arrived: 9/24/21

Charlie is a big bear of a friendly guy. He is super mellow, and mostly likes to lay down and watch the world go by. He is affectionate, and loves belly rubs. He also enjoys lumbering around the yard, and going on short walks. He is overweight, and we have had him on a diet, which would need to continue. But he would be an excellent, low-maintenance companion

  • Previous Home: Helping Hands Human Society, Topeka KS
  • Arrived: 10/12/21

Molly is an adorable girl.  She is quiet, but loves to be picked up, held, and carried around.  She gets along with well with other dogs, mostly keeping to herself.  As with most pups her age, she is on some medications, but still gets around well.  She loves to be outside, soaking in the sun.

Buster is a friendly, quiet guy.  He is a bit shy, but likes people and other dogs.  He pretty much stays to himself.  He enjoys being outside, and going on short walks.  He is a good snuggler!

Hobbs is the perfect mix for a senior dog:  he still has energy, and loves walks, but he is also happy cuddling up on the couch.  He  lived with dogs and cats in the past, and gets along fine with them.  He had his front teeth removed, but is otherwise a healthy boy.

Churro is a happy, friendly guy.  He’s a bit of a chub, and loves snacks, but he’s also very affectionate and full of energy.  He likes being on a lap!  He gets along well with the other dogs.
