Meet Marais! 

While she's only a puppy, she's experianced a lot in life already that we as humans can't even fathom.  She and her sister, Winona, were the only survivors of their littermates to an oncoming car in the road. They were wandering...and a car came. Marais was left with a battlewound, but it's only a reminder of how much of a strong, survivor she is!

Marais is such a sweet girl, at 5 months old she already has the potty training down! She loves to play with her tennis ball, and run around in the snow. She is very good with the 2 kids in her foster home (age 7 & 4). She sleeps in her kennel at night; cries for 5 min or so and then out like a light. Good girl!

She loves naps on the couch (as many of us enjoy doing!). If you work from home, she'll want to be with you all the time showering you with love! As much as we love this, boundaries will be good for her to learn as she grows into being an adult canine citizen so she doesn't mind when you leave. :o) 

So - If you're looking for a puppy to share many kisses and lots of love with, who has quite the story to tell - Look no further! Marais is here for you. Click the grey button below to apply!

*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.
