Mr. Cruz is amazing! He goes potty and poops outside most of the time. We've had a few accidents but he is just a puppy who is learning how to ask how to go out. He is super sweet and affectionate. Loves the kids and the dogs. Not food aggressive, doesn’t bark much but I’ve heard it a few times. He does great in his kennel when I leave him for a few hours. He loves toys and treats. He's been on a few walks, he does pretty well so far… he’ll do great with more practice. 

He’s just a gem and would be great with kids and other dogs. Super sweet and affectionate and relatively mellow for a puppy.

 * Puppies under 5 months should not be left alone for more than 4 hours at a time to help them with potty training and socialization.

If you have previously applied with us please email to reactivate your application with new interest.

*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.
