First, I have to apologize for getting the date wrong on the meet and greet at the Brookside Barkery. It is this coming Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at 118 W. 63rd St., Kansas City. My sincerest apologies!

Summer is a great time to add a new pet to your family. Animals Best Friends has several wonderful adult dogs that are looking for their forever homes.

Sport is a handsome Lab boxer mix. He is 6 years young and still a puppy at heart. Sport loves to play in the kiddie pool in the hot summer and really enjoys his toys. He has such a sweet face, which goes with his personality. Sport likes to sleep at his person’s feet. He does well with older children and would make a good family dog. Sport is also kennel trained.

Desi is a beautiful American bulldog boxer mix. She is also six years young. Desi has a sweet personality and enjoys getting lots of attention. She wants to please her people and really enjoys going on walks. Desi would work best as the only pet, but could be paired with another male dog her size. ABF prefers placing Desi in a home with a tall fence and no small children.

If you are looking for a dog to join your family and think that one of these kids might be a good fit, please go to our website at and complete an application. Animals Best Friends does home visits, vet checks, and two week trials to be sure the animal and family are a good fit.
