 Lady is doing so much better walking on leash when cars drive by!  We keep to quieter streets and that has helped. She used to crouch down or lay down for every car that passes but only does that now if a car is loud or for trucks.
She got to go on 2 long car rides to the cabin this summer and did really well!  She also likes to go along on errands now that the weather is cooler.
We fostered a puppy while we had her and she did well with it, not surprisingly since she seems to have had puppies before.  She's not a fan of small dog attitudes in general and prefers dogs her own size or larger, especially males!
Her foster owners have had to work away from home more now but she does ok in her crate for a full work day.  She knows she gets a Kong filled with peanut butter and sometimes one chewy bone so she goes into her crate without protest.
She is slowly learning to do more typical dog things like wag her tail at us and venture out into the backyard more.  
She no longer howls at sirens and is trying her best to learn how to "sit" on command.

She will do best in a home with other dogs to help build her confidence, and a fenced-in yard will be required!

*The pet you are viewing is a rescued pet which is most often from an animal control facility and does not come with a pedigree. The breed(s) listed are our best guess and are in no way guaranteed. Sometimes the pets appear to be a particular breed(s) in the pictures we receive from our rescue partners and when they arrive we are surprised to see an entirely different breed(s) in person!  If you choose to DNA test your adopted pet, test results may vary from company to company and our breed guess may not be reflected in those results as it is just that, our best guess. It is with deep longing that we wish there was a breed called "cute" as we believe all of our dogs would fall under this new breed classification!

Completion of an Adoption Application via our website is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is the first step in our adoption process. 

*Animals who are not fully vaccinated and altered are not eligible for long distance adoption.

When you adopt a pet from Midwest Animal Rescue and Services, your adoption fee covers: Microchip and registration, Core Vaccines including Rabies, Distemper and bordetella, age appropriate heartworm testing or FeLV-FIV testing, sterilization, heartworm/flea-tick prevention and deworming while in foster care. 

Adoption fees are non-negotiable and can be paid by cashier's check, money order or credit card. We do not accept personal checks.

Any issues that arise after adoption are the full responsibility of the adopter after the finalization of adoption. Adoption fees are only part of the expense of owning a pet, so we ask you to consider the costs for the life of the pet before adoption. We recommend pet insurance.
