What do Giggy Vanderpump, Gordo Maloney-Schwartz, Archie Beador and today’s installment of The Real Shelter Dogs of Missouri all have in common? They are all excellent doggos!

These absolutely excellent Real Shelter Dogs come to us from Rescue One in Springfield, MO. Rescue One is a no-kill foster-based rescue, rescuing dogs regardless of age, special needs, or ease of placement. They currently have about 175 dogs in their care (lucky them!) and also have a strong commitment to educating the public about responsible pet ownership.

And now meet your Real Shelter Dogs, complete with opening credits-worthy taglines! (If you are interested in adopting any of these precious pups, please visit
