Depot is a one and a half year old Shepherd/Husky Mix.  Just a week at the shelter after he was brought in as a stray, Warriors' Best Friend's trainer Bella, adopted Depot. With his piercing blue Husky eyes and his loyal shepherd nature and hyper-intelligence, it’s hard not to fall in love with Depot after spending just 5 minutes with him.  In addition to all of these wonderful traits, Bella has enjoyed each step of the journey in training Depot due to his extreme curiosity in every new environment they encounter together.

Depot was named in honor of the Home Depot Foundation who initiated the construction of Warriors’ Best Friend’s service dog training facility in August of 2015. Home Depot committed funds and several hours of volunteer help to build the welcome center and kenneling and training unit which will officially open later this month.

Our Other Dogs

Ivan is a one year old, Plott Hound/Pointer mix.  He was found as a stray outside Belton, MO and was taken to the shelter but his family never came for him.

Janie is a yellow lab mix about two years old. She was found wandering on the beach by Jacksonville Animal Control.

Josh is a 2 year old male yellow Labrador Retriever.  He came as an owner surrender.  His owner died unexpectedly, and his owner's brother couldn't keep the dog so he donated him.

Kiya is a 1 year old female mix.  We don't really know what she is, probably some mix of lab, doberman, and collie.  She was rescued from animal control as a young puppy by the London Sanctuary.

Lexi is a 2 year old female chocolate lab. She was donated as a puppy. Lexi loves to play ball and take long naps on the couch, a perfect combination for any warrior.

Meet Miss Mave!  She is a spunky one-year-old Weimaraner who is full of personality and sass! 

We received Mave at a very young age of only 2 months.  Everyone here at Warriors' Best Friend has enjoyed watching her journey growing up in the program! Mave is very intelligent and attentive.  As soon as she hears the trainer grab the leash, she comes barreling down the stairs and sits patiently as the trainer puts it on! Mave is what we like to call an "all arounder".  She is sweet to all living things and just wants to be near her person at all times.

Mave loves playing with other dogs! One of her best friends is Boscoe, an American Bulldog/mix.  They can play for hours wrestling and sharing toys.  Every now and then we catch them chewing on the same bone! They are truly two peas in a pod! As for the cats around the facility, she is still working up the courage to say hi!

Meet Max!  He is a handsome one and a half year old Boxer/Terrier mix.  He was born and raised in the shelter while patiently waiting to find his forever home.

Moe is a 2 1/2 year old male chocolate lab.  Moe came from Florida Lab Rescue.  He was surrendered by his owner because he had too much energy for them.
