Hello to my future family! My name is L’il Abner and I can’t wait to meet you and begin my non-litter life (Sunday Comics Litter). I am a confident little girl and am very friendly. I am a pretty calm young lady and mostly just want to cuddle. Foster mom always tells me I’m her favorite…maybe it’s because I’m a super easy puppy and will give you all the kisses.

I can’t wait to meet you and begin my solo puppy life! Fill out an app to meet me (or others in my litter), you won’t be disappointed! I can go “home” on my 8-week birthday!

So far, life has been really good. Me and my 10 siblings were born on May 24th…mom was supposed to wait til we made it to MN, but we just couldn’t wait to be a part of the world. We arrived in MN a few days later and enjoyed a calm and inviting environment. Our foster mom does so many cool things to make sure we are good little puppies. For example, to get accustomed to different sounds, she plays music that has different sounds intermixed so we can desensitize to them. We do a lot of sensory work, such as walking and playing with lots of different textures. And we do a lot of confidence building, such as walking up and down ramps, going through tunnels, and being cheer-leaded for every everything we do.

We started in the whelping room, away from all the other animals in the house. At 4 weeks, we moved to a room off the living room, so we could see and hear, but were safely behind two gates. And then we turned 6…and now we have a daytime living space in the living/dining room! There are three resident dogs here, and I love watching them and saying hi through the pen. I give the Great Pyrenees lots of kisses through the pen. The big dogs are fun to watch, and I am learning so much from them. I sleep in a smaller area and have been introduced to kennels (with the doors always open). I like to go sleep in there with some of my siblings and we all sleep soundly through the night

I am really healthy, having just had my 6-week checkup. The whole litter had some Demodex prior to our first round of preventatives, but now our skin is clearing up nicely. I have had my nails trimmed about 3 times so far and did really well with my first bath. I am eating like a champ, and currently the food is IAMS puppy (from the rescue), but I get lots of treats. My favorites are frozen cubes of watermelon because it helps with the teething, but I also like Cheerios, baby carrots, and puppy popcorn.

*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.
