Well, as usual, there are plenty of poor, homeless dogs at the Humane Society of Greater Kansas City, and they are all waiting for somebody to adopt them. Also, there are lots of cats, if you happen to prefer a cat (even though dogs are better, if you ask me)!
Anyway, I'm going to tell you about some dogs today, and if you want to look at more animals who are available for adoption, just go to the Humane Society website.
These other two dogs are not puppies anymore, but they would still make very nice pets for somebody. Shine is a shepherd/lab mix who is about 5 years old. He had kind of a bad life before he came to the shelter because he was living in a drug house. It takes him awhile to learn to trust people, but after he gets to know you, he is okay. Shine really likes treats, so if you give him some, he will start liking you pretty quickly. He weighs 65 pounds and probably needs to be in a home where there are no other pets.
Shelly is a 7-year-old husky who weighs 40 pounds. She is very sweet, and she gets along fine with other dogs. She's a very pretty girl, especially since she is black-and-white, and I'm sure she would be really, really happy if you could just let her go home with you and live there happily ever after!
