Bob

Bob

Bob is a full-blooded Anatolian Shepherd. He was rescued from a high-kill shelter outside of Houston, Texas just before he was scheduled for euthanasia. Head trainer Paul chose Bob on a whim without actually meeting him. Bob was flown to St. Louis by our friend, Chris, who works with the award-winning charity animal transport organization,…

Chip

Before Chip came to Dogs for Our Brave in August 2022, he was sadly a stray that had been picked up by Jefferson County Animal Control. Like many stray rescue dogs, not too much information is available on what Chip’s life was like before he was picked up by Animal Control. But that could not…

Dragon

Dragon

Dragon is a street cat turned office cat. We aren’t sure how old he is, but we do know he is an adult. He is FIV+ and picky about friends so no one wanted to adopt him. When Paul learned that Dragon was headed towards the euthanasia list, he decided our training facility would be…
Frido

Frido

Frido was also found at Five Acres Animal Shelter by Brigid. As a volunteer, Brigid walked Frido and noticed her potential. Soon Paul made a visit and her assessment was extremely successful. The team was excited to welcome another Silver Lab into the program! Frido LIVES to play fetch with a tennis ball, but as…

Hager

Hager

We received a message on Facebook from a generous individual needing to surrender two Labrador puppies due to health issues. Paul quickly jumped at the opportunity to pick up this eight-week-old puppy to enter the training program. Because of his young age, Hager is being puppy raised by Brigid until he is six months old.…

Jay

Jay

Jay is another dog rescued from CARE STL. This guy will always provide you with a laugh, as he is one of the goofiest dogs we’ve seen in training. He is a smart boy and is working hard on his retrieval skills, basic obedience, and impulse control. Soon he will start public training! He is…

Keene

Keene

Keene was donated to us as a puppy, and was puppy raised by Kathy. This sweet girl is eager to please and in tune with people’s emotions. Her skill set is growing every day and the team thinks she will make a great service dog. Keene’s training was sponsored by our founders, Andy and Marylynn…
Lizzy

Lizzy

Paul found Lizzy at Five Acres Animal Shelter and picked her out of her litter. The team did an assessment and enjoyed her happy-go-lucky energy and anticipated she would do well in the program. She is very eager to work and learn new skills. Lizzy’s training is sponsored by The Dick Scheffel Family Charitable Foundation,…
Louie

Louie

In June of 2022, DFOB found itself in need of another rescue dog to train. A group of trainers went to the APA to take a look at the adoptable dogs that had service dog potential. As the saying goes, “when it rains, it pours” and they were met with around five dogs that had…

In March of 2022, three puppies were abandoned on the side of the road. Fortunately, they were quickly taken in by Stray Paws Rescue for immediate care. One of the puppies had gotten sick and the other two needed to be separated to keep them from catching anything as well. Thankfully, all the puppies were…
Riley

Riley

Paul found Riley from the wild world of Facebook. An abandoned Golden Retriever was dumped in a trailer park in rural Missouri. The next day, the team hit the road to pick her up! This sweet girl was extremely shy when she came to us. The team has allowed her to move at her own…
Santa

Santa

Ears for days! Santa is our newest recruit from CARE STL, and she shows tremendous potential. This girl has loads of personality and will go from zero to one hundred and back to zero in a heartbeat. The training team is unsure about what breeds she might be, but their biggest clue is her back…
Sasha

Sasha

Sasha is our fur-ball of energy! She was donated by a neighbor and friend of Andy & Marylynn Gladstein. While Paul was in California delivering another service dog to one of our veterans, he was able to meet Sasha, assess her, and bring her to our facility…the timing was perfect! She loves playtime and chewing…

Tagged on Save St. Louis Pets Facebook page, Paul was alerted about an outside dog that needed help. This calm girl wandered onto an older couple’s property, so they just let her stay with their current outside dog. With the help of a fellow rescuer, we were able to rescue her just before a blizzard…
Tito

Tito

Tito was a surrender to DFOB due to his high energy and drive. Trainer Paul received an email from a man in Kansas City who was going blind in one eye. Unfortunately, his wife would be having a hip replacement in 2020, leaving no one to walk or train this purebred German Shepherd Dog puppy.…
