Meet the Post-Dispatch Pets of the Week!

Buttercup-A643010

Hi, my name is Buttercup and my ID Number is A643010!

Buttercup is a delicate two-year-old Rat Terrier mix with a soft white coat and a great big heart. This sweet little lady only weighs about nine pounds and can be a little shy at first, so she’s looking for a patient human friend to help her adjust to her new life. Once she’s warmed up, she’s the perfect lapdog who enjoys being cuddled and would be a great companion on these chilly winter nights to snuggle under a blanket for a TV marathon session. Buttercup is a sweet pup ready to bloom into your new best friend!

To adopt: Apply in person at the Humane Society of Missouri’s Best Buddy Center in Maryland Heights. Click here for hours and directions.

Clyde-A642648

Hi, my name is Clyde and my ID Number is A642648!

Clyde is a rugged Domestic Shorthair cat with a handsomely striped brown coat with a huge purrsonality! He’s a fierce but sweet feline who splits his time honing his hunting skills on toys and snuggling up with his human companions – he even uses his ‘arms’ to give hugs! Although he loves his human friends and, if given time to adjust, could possibly get along with dogs and kids, his stripes seem to have misguided him into thinking he’s part tiger so he would heavily prefer to be the only cat in your life. Clyde can’t wait to find his furrever family!

To adopt: Apply in person at the Humane Society of Missouri’s Chesterfield Valley Center. Click here for hours and directions.

Scout-A547160

Hi, my name is Scout and my ID Number is A547160!

Scout is a striking six-year-old Catahoula Leopard Hound mix who was born ready for all of the adventures life has to throw at her! This beautiful girl has a soft, white coat with blue merle splotches and a tail that’s always wagging for her human friends. Scout is a wonderful girl who’s big in absolutely everything – size, playfulness, and especially friendliness – so a loving forever family who can take her for long walks is the top item on her wish-list. If you’re in need of a new canine companion, Scout would be a perfect choice!

Sugar is an adorable one-and-a-half-year-old Australian Shepherd mix ready to add a little extra ‘sweetness’ to your life! This wonderful girl weighs about thirty-five pounds, so she’s the perfect size to share a tent on camping trips or for sharing a sidewalk when out on a walk at the park! Sugar loves all of her human friends and it really shines through her nub of a tail that’s almost always wiggling with excitement. Sugar will make an incredible canine companion to one lucky family!
