Rizzo, aka Frankie, is a Velcro dog. She loves to hang out with me. If I sit down she runs to sit on my lap. She gets along very well with the other dogs in the house. She is almost house trained and she is not a fan of being in a crate. She will sing the song of her people when left in a crate by herself. Frankie will settle down after a few minutes. She really wants to be close to her person at all times.
Rizzo aka Frankie loves to snuggle with me and the other small dogs in the house. She likes the wet food I feed her. She loves all treats. We are working on commands like come, sit, off, down. Older children (8 - 12) would be a better fit for her since she is a very small dog. She is a wonderful little girl who wants to be loved.
*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 www.midwestanimalrescue.org 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.
