Reyka, pit bull terrier mix

Reyka is a sweet female pit bull terrier mix in the care of Needy Paws Rescue.

Reyka plays well with others — she's happy to keep company with other dogs. She already has had all of her shots, and she is spayed. Good news: She's already house-trained.

Here's more from Reyka:

People, dogs and water is all you need to be happy in life! Seriously! I would spend hours in my pool if you'll let me! I love other dogs and enjoy getting attention from the people around me. In just a few short months I will celebrate my first birthday and I love the idea that I could do that with my new family! Please buy me a plastic pool! Being so young and energetic I am like a sponge. They say I'm so smart, I learn quickly and that I'm a great companion!

Moose, boxer and mastiff mix

Moose is a male boxer and mastiff mix being cared for at All Paws Safe Haven.

He has had all of his shots, and he is neutered.

Here's what Moose's friends at All Paws Safe Haven think of him:

Meet Moose Man! Moose loves people. He loves them so much, in fact, that he prefers only people. At this time, he prefers to be the only pet in the house so you can focus all your attention on him. Being a boxer mix, he is also very agile! He likes to test his jumping abilities so a family with a six-foot fence or the ability to walk him for potty breaks is needed. He loves snuggling on the couch, playing with toys and getting belly rubs!

Lyra, pit bull terrier

Lyra is a darling female pit bull terrier dog in the care of Center for Animal Rescue and Enrichment of St. Louis.

She is vaccinated.

Lyra's current caretakers say:

Lyra is the sweetest doggo! She craves attention and love. Lyra has demodex (non-contagious) mange, which is exacerbated by stress (like the stress from a shelter). She also has an injury to a back leg so will need to be on activity restriction. All she really wants to do is curl up on a couch. Please let us know if you are available to foster Lyra!

Bijou, pit bull terrier

Bijou is a winsome female pit bull terrier dog in the care of Center for Animal Rescue and Enrichment of St. Louis.

Bijou is spayed and vaccinated.

Notes from Bijou's caretakers:

Bijou has officially launched summertime! Our goal is for her to find a forever home before the leaves turn. We'd like to find her a foster home even sooner. If there's anyone out there who can give Bijou a break from the shelter, even if just for a weekend, please reach out. Bijou's ideal home would have no other pets in the house and be adults only. She loves playing, being adored and sitting pretty for treats.
