Mati is SMART! He loves to learn and show off his skills! He knows: 

  • “Sit”

  • “Lay Down”

  • “Shake” 

  • Best Trick of All?? “Inside Voice!”

“Fetch the ball” is his favorite activity. Mati believes that it's his job to set it in your hand when he brings it to you…then it’s your job to throw it again!  He really truly is a fun, young dog who thrives with a human who is willing to parent him. That said, he doesn’t always know where his body is in relation to the world surrounding him, so things and little humans might get knocked over around him, with zero malicious intentions though! 

Overall, Mati is just a happy, goofy boy who is learning the world around him.  We all can relate to him to some degree!

*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.
