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

Meet Agate (aka. Gracie).  She is a precious 1-1.5 year old, 30lb, girl that was heartworm positive and barely alive when she arrived at the Mississippi shelter.  She received treatment and came up to Minnesota where she has been learning how to dog in her foster home. 

She has slowly been coming out of her shell and is great with all dogs and humans of various sizes.  She is still very nervous about quick movements or being pet over the head but LOVES to cuddle and snuggle (on the couch and in bed at night).  She is crate trained and loves to get in it when she knows you are going to give her a Kong snack to play with.  She loves playing with toys and following her other dog friends around.  She is 90% potty trained but occasionally still has accidents as she hasn’t learned to tell you she needs to go out.  She would be the perfect addition to any home especially if you love to snuggle.


*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.
