Fozzie is a very sweet schnauzer mix who has shown us he is able to adapt to home life well. Prefers to hang out inside the house, stands by the door when he needs to go out to do his business. Doesn’t enjoy being on the dog line, would absolutely love a home with a fenced in yard. Sticks close to his people within and outside of the house, doesn’t seem interested in fleeing or running off to explore. He does well on a leash and doesn’t pull. He is a bit timid and skittish of new sounds or sudden movements, but I think with time this will improve. Because of this, a home with small children may not be the most comfortable fit for him, however he does fine with my 4 and 2 year old. Would benefit from obedience training. Does well in the kennel when we are out, sleeps in our bedroom at night with no accidents or whining. The only time he has barked is at my pet rabbits, so may not be a good fit for people who have cats or other small animals. He would LOVE to have another dog in the house to show him the ropes. Probably not a good fit for dog parks at this point, needs slow introductions. Low grooming needs, no shedding that I have noticed. A patient, sweet family with a fenced yard, another dog, time and love are all he needs. He can’t wait to meet you!



* Fozzie  did test positive for heartworm and will be receiving treatment provided by MARS to live a long healthy life.  

*A dog with Heartworms is not directly contagious to other animals. Heartworms are transmitted by an infected mosquito.

*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.
