My name is Gates and my foster mom says I am a 65lb happy-go-lucky pup ready to find a patient, active family that is loves to have fun! 
I am a goof ball who spends hours playing with my foster sister and would prefer another dog in the house to show me the ways of how to be a good doggo, as the world can be scary sometimes. 
I am getting the hang of my crate and sleep all through the night without a peep. I am working on my potty training and like to sit by the back door when I’m ready to go out. I love walks and don’t pull, but like to weave back and forth to smell all the things. 
I mimic my foster sister and bark when she does, otherwise am pretty quiet. I have a prey drive, so cats may not be my best companion. I however, am interested in other dogs and humans! It takes me a minute to check things out to feel safe because everything is so new to me, but my foster fam is showing me that it’s not so scary. 
Loud noises and fast movement are not my favorite, so older children that are gentle with me, is preferred. I am a silly, sensitive giant that forgets how big I am. Once I trust you, I am your buddy that follows you around and wants your affection. 
A single family, fenced in yard would be my dream. I would love to continue my training as I haven’t had the chance to show how smart I am. I am excited to meet my forever family that is ready for endless fun and adventure.

*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.
