Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Stewie is an awesome boy. He was born January 2012. He is very friendly, has moderate energy, LOVES to go for car rides, enjoys chewing his bones, playing with his balls and loves the good ole butt and back scratches. Stewie can be a "rough" lover at times. He doesn't mean to get overly excited with some loving, but he just gets very happy with his pettings. He knows all basic commands and is great with obedience, he is so very smart !!!!! Stewie also knows how to kiss on command ! Stewie needs to be the only pet (no cats, no dogs) in the household. This is not to say he is dog aggressive, he simply is too rough for the majority of dogs and can get possessive of food and toys. If there are any kids in the house, they should be old enough to participate in dog care and able to follow directions. Stewie even has his one Face Book fan page : stewie adopt me. Go check out some more great pictures of this guy !!! Adoption fee for Stewie is $75.00

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Adoption Fee: 350.00. Apollo came to us as his owner simply worked too many hours and Apollo was home by himself too much. So she wanted to do what was right for him and let him come to us so he could find another family that could give this boy the love and attention he needed. Apollo is about 3 years old. He actually was brought to America from Germany when he was a puppy. He does great with kids and enjoys being around people. We do recommend no little kids due to his size and excitability at times. . Of course he loves to be scratched and rubbed and be taken for walks. He walks very nicely on a leash too. And going for car rides is a treat in itself for him. We do recommend that Apollo goes to a home with submissive female dogs or no other dogs at all. He likes to be the king in his household and wear his crown brightly. Also, he will need to be fed his dinner by himself. He can sometimes be a little stubborn and doesn't want to share. He is okay wit cats, as long as the cats are used to dogs and will not run from them, so as to temp him with a game of cat and mouse. Apollo loves to play with toys He will take a toy outside of his Foster mom allows it, and when he can't find the toy in the snow, he is very goofy snorting and digging in the snow for it He really does have a nice personality He can be stubborn at times but he is very smart. He is crate trained very nicely, housebroken, neutered and current on his vaccines. He is also microchipped. His adoption fee is $350.

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / American Bulldog / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 200.00. Zoey was tied to a tree with a thick chain. Zoey was never allowed to come indoors and receive the love, attention and medical care she needed. Zoey got pregnant, again, and her last litter were ate by coyotes. All but one puppy, who she was able to save. Thankfully, a good samaritan came upon her and was able to convince the owner to surrender her. At that time, we thought she was pregnant again. And was heartworm positive !!! Upon bringing her into our group, we discovered she was not pregnant (thank god) but her heartworm was so severely advanced, her body, lungs and heart was filled with a ton of extra fluid. Immediately, the vet began draining her abdomen of fluid. She was put on a few different drugs to continue helping her body to drain the fluids. After about a week, we soon discovered how very skinny she was. Zoey has had a pretty crappy life. All this girl wants is to be loved and shown that she is important. She is great with kids, cats and dogs. Is friendly with everybody. And after being with us for 4 months, Zoey is feeling so much better and will be ready to be adopted by mid-February. This girl has such an amazing love for life and is so happy to be feeling so much better, you can truly see the difference in her personality. She is housebroken, crate trained, is finally heartworm negative, is spayed and current on her vaccines. She has been treated for a couple of different internal parasites and is microchipped.

His prior owners were not able to take care of him so we welcomed him into our group with open arms. Opie is about 3.5 years old. He is great with other dogs, cats and little kids. And of course he loves all people. He is well mannered, very playful, loves to be petted and loved on and be the center of your attention. But with a beautiful boy like him, you simply can't say no to him. He is a big friendly guy. And he listens well and is eager to please ! Opie is currently on anti-seizure medications to help keep any seizures away. He is currently taking the 50mg twice a day dosage and does just fine when he is given his meds. No problems. Phenobarbital is not an expensive medication but this will be required by whoever adopts him. Currently (1/9/18) we are still treating Opie for a severe urine infection where he is still peeing blood even after a couple of weeks. We have done x-rays on him, did an ultrasound looking for obvious masses or bladders times. We have ran multiple bloodwork and urine tests as well. At one point he lost 7lbs in one week . We were very worried about him He is slowly getting better, He has actually gained 5lbs back and is not urinating as much But we will continue with the antibiotics he is on . He is neutered, current on his vaccines, tested negative for heartworm and is free of internal parasites. he is also micro chipped. His adoption fee is $350

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Adoption Fee: 200.00. Poor Haley was used her whole life for breeding. It was litter after litter. Her owner decided that she could no longer be used for breeding and dumped her at the shelter. Well, it was discovered upon her coming into our group, she was once again pregnant. And she just had a prior litter 8 months before this last one. Well, her breeding days are over with. She is now spayed, and we are looking for a family that will now treat her like the baby. She is SO deserving of this, and even though she has been through a lot. she is such a sweet, gentle girl. Such a kind soul. She is super chill. She would love to sit on your feet and keep you warm and comfortable. She's a really good girl. No issues her foster mom says. Haley is good with other dogs and good with kids. We are unsure about cats. She is about 7.5 years old and is a healthy girl. The vet says she does have a little bit of arthritis in her spine and would benefit from receiving a joint supplement daily. She also had a small mass removed from her side when we spayed her, but the mass was not cancerous. She was also treated for whipworms. Haley's adoption fee is $200. She has been spayed, had a minor teeth cleaning, received all her vaccinations, is heartworm negative, been treated for worms and is microchipped. She is crate trained and housebroken. All she needs now is a family who will love her the rest of her life and treat her like a princess

UPDATE - 1/10/18 We took Faith into the vets a few days ago and discovered she needs to have her ACL replaced Her surgery is scheduled for 1/29/18 She will need to recovery for at least two months before she can be adopted Faith found herself at a shelter. She was not doing well there, becoming very stressed and frightened from all the smells and noise. She was actually shutting down emotionally. So we found a foster who was available to help this girl Since coming into our group, she has blossomed and is enjoying life. No more being scared or stressed. Faith is about 3 years old. She loves playing with other dogs and playing with toys, especially rope toys. She really loves running in her foster dads back yard and doing zoomies !. She is very food motivated and loves her doggie treats. She listens quite well and likes to please her people. We would suggest she goes to a home where their are no real young kids, like toddlers or babies, just becuz of her energy level. We are unsure of how she is around cats as well. If you are interested in Faith and have cats, please let us know and we can test her with the kitties. She is a very happy girl that truly would love to have somebody to hang out with. She is housebroke, crate trained, is spayed, current on vaccines, heartworm negative and free of internal parasites. She is also micro chipped. Her adoption fee is $150.

This boy did not deserved to be put down and we wanted to give him a second chance. We knew that he was said to have knee issues but did not realize that he needed BOTH ACL's replaced. So surgery is what he was given. He is still needing about two more months to heal up before he will be available for adoption. We will update more as we get to know him.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 150.00. Sunny came to us from a very high kill shelter. She was heart worm positive and had only hours left before she was to be killed. We were lucky that a very nice woman stepped up to help her and Foster her. Sunny is a boxer mix of sorts. She is about 4 years old and Her foster mom says she is an adorable girl and will even play in her crate. Her favorite toys are a ball and cloth-type toys. She is a real pleasure to have around and this girl just wants to be loved and treated like the adorable girl, she is. Just a real sweetheart of a girl Sunny is a friendly girl but can be a little skittish at times. We recommend that Sunny goes to a home with other kids, only for the fact that she often thinks she is going to be hit and cowers to the floor at times. We are worried that the energy level of young kids, could increase the amount of time she fears being hit. Sunny would do best with male dogs that are submissive. We are unsure of cats at this time. Sunny just finished her treatment for heartworms. We did several blood tests on her and all her bloodwork came back great. She was treated for tapeworms and whipworms. She is spayed, current on all vaccines, microchipped as well. Her adoption fee is $150

      Breed: Bullboxer Pit
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 150.00. Sasha is a very active and attention driven dog. She does best with dogs that are her size or larger. Sasha would benefit greatly from an individual that is physically active and can spend time with her by either taking her for walks or playing fetch in the back yard with her. Although Sasha may look on the smaller side, she is extremely muscular and strong. She can also be vocal if she chooses but NOT in an aggressive way. Sasha will require a fenced in yard, preferably a taller fence as she knows how to climb chain link fences. Although if you are in the back yard with her, its unlikely she will attempt to escape. We do recommend that somebody goes out with her for a few weeks, until she feels more secure in her new home and realizes she is "home". Sasha has been through a intense, four week training course for obedience. This has really helped her become more well-rounded. She listens well but will need consistency from her new owner. She truly is a very smart girl. She would do best with kids that are over 12, due to her happiness and excitability and NO cats or small dogs for her. Sasha would do best with another dog in the house, one that is her size or larger and one to keep her occupied and to play with her. This girl has a very comical personality and is quite goofy. She will sometimes try to get her way by rolling over on her back and looking innocent and all cute, and so she can get her belly rubbed. This girl LOVES TO PLAY WITH TOYS and would do best with hard toys as it is very easy for her to destruct her toys. Sasha is simply looking for somebody to give her the love and attention she desires and needs. She has been spayed and is current on all vaccines, heart worm negative and free of any parasites. She is also micro chipped. Sasha is house broken, crate trained and loves to ride around in the car if you are willing to take the girl. Her adoption fee is $150

      Breed: Lab-Pointer
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Pointer / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 150.00. Maeve (pronounced May-vee) aka Sassy Pants is a super sweet girl that was found as a stray by Monroe Animal Control. She was at the shelter for several months, terrified, before being taken into rescue. We estimate her to be about 5-6 yrs old and 65#. Our best guess at her breed is lab/pointer. We suspect Maeve was an outdoor dog previously - she didn't seem to know about stairs, phones, toasters, car rides, etc. She was also much more comfortable outdoors than indoors for a while. We are working on getting her more used to household living and she's doing great! She is crate trained, which is used whenever she can't be directly supervised. Maeve is reserved with strangers, but loves treats and will become your BFF once you feed her a few times. She likes to play with toys (especially squeaky toys!) and chew bones. Her favorite time of the day is meal time - she actually tap dances for her meals she gets so excited! Maeve was heartworm positive when we got her but she has been treated and is doing great! She's expected to live a normal, full life (on monthly heartworm prevention, of course!) Maeve can be a bit dog selective - a laid back male would probably be the best fit for her. (Don't worry, we will do introductions before finalizing anything!) We do not recommend a home with cats. Maeve has not been around young children to our knowledge, and due to her quiet personality we are recommending a home with older (12 yrs +) children. Her adoption fee is $150 which helps to covers her spay, vaccines, heartworm testing, deworming, etc. Please note, for anybody who may be interested in Avery, we need to mention that she is being fostered in the Dundee MI area and due to her foster mom's work schedule, we are requesting that the applicant needs to be within 2 hours driving distance from Dundee MI.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Adoption Fee: 250.00. Trudy, Trudy, Trudy. this girl is still quite all puppy. Silly, goofy and loves to play. She loves her basket of toys and can easily entertain herself. Toys are a must for her, not only becuz she loves them, but if she starts to get bored, she may start to look for things to nibble on. But remember, she is still a puppy and will need direction to let her know what things are acceptable, and what are not. She loves playing in her backyard too. If she sees a squirrel or any birdies, she likes to go and chase after them, thinking its a game. Trudy is about 8-9 months old. A very pretty, petite girl who is very friendly and happy with people. She likes playing with other dogs and would do best with male dogs in particular. She would also probably do best with kids that are a bit older so she does not accidentally knock them down. Trudy is crate trained, housebroken, spayed and current on all vaccines. She has been treated for worms and is micro chipped. We will highly recommend that whoever adopts her, should take Trudy to a basic obedience class to help continue her training and let her know what is expected of her. This will also help the bond between her and her new owner.
