Lara AKA Lady is a shy but gentle and sweet girl who is learning to trust.
She is very fearful of cars so we have been taking it slow on walks on quiet streets. She follows the resident dog's lead and that makes her feel more confident.  
When she first came to us, she was too nervous to even take treats.  She might have Irish ancestry because the first thing she would take were little bits of corned beef!
We discovered that she likes hanging out in kennels/crates and she now has a couple around to choose from.
She must have hound in her because she will howl on occasion, especially if she hears sirens!  She also has a very curious nose and tries to get a closer look at things on the counter.  She sometimes "sings" for her supper and wags her tail eagerly!

*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 or cash.

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.
