Meet the Post-Dispatch Pets of the Week!

Preston-A631838

Hi, my name is Preston and my ID Number is A631838!

Preston is a darling little eight-year-old Puggle. Preston walks well on a leash and he loves to go outside to explore. He’ll use his Beagle nose to sniff and smell everything! Preston wants all of your love and attention all to himself, so he’d prefer a forever home without other pets or young children. Preston enjoys being with people, and he prefers to go potty outside. He can’t wait to meet his forever family!

Meet Jaxom, the Purina Pet of the Week!

Jaxom-A629550
Purina proudly feeds the animals of the Humane Society of Missouri

Hi, my name is Jaxom and my ID Number is A629550!

Jaxom is a delightful little Australian Cattle Dog mix with wonderfully floppy ears! At just over a year old, he’s still full of that goofy puppy energy! Jaxom was rescued by HSMO’s Animal Cruelty Task Force from a property where he wasn’t receiving enough attention to his basic needs. Therefore, Jaxom can be a bit fearful in new situations, but he acclimates quickly! Jaxom prefers to go potty outside, and he could make a great running buddy or fetch partner. He’ll be a wonderful forever friend!
