Grits is currently living in a foster home learning the beginning stages of puppy manners and housetraining. Grits does well around other dogs and small children. He is playful, sweet, and looking for a perfect family.

Puppies need proper training and socialization to grow into fabulous adult dogs. It takes dedication and effort and is a lifelong commitment. Helping Strays recommends socialization and obedience training to encourage good behavior and strengthen the human-animal bond.

Some of our pets are in foster care. If you are interested in a specific pet, please contact the shelter at (618) 939-7389 to arrange a meeting.
