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…

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…
