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.

      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). LOOK AT BEEFCAKE !!! This boy is as precious as he looks !!! He ended up in a shelter where his time was running out - quickly. We could not pass up this boy and brought him into our group. Upon getting him a medical evaluation, it is determined that he will need his ACL and luxating patella repaired with surgery. Surgery is scheduled for March 14th at Heritage Vet. While he is having knee surgery, he will be neutered at the same time. He was being treated for a bad case of kennel cough but is all healed up and the infection is gone. His foster mom says he is THE SWEETEST BOY and has personality PLUS !!! He likes to "talk" to her and loves to be petted. He does great with other dogs and would be really good with kids, but he is NOT fond of cats. They look to tasty to him. He LOVES playing with toys, especially the ones that squeak and running around in the back yard. He is housebroken, crate trained and loves going bye-bye. Upon adoption, he will be neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative and cleared of any internal parasites. He is also microchipped. His adoption fee is $250

      Sex: Male Male

      Location: Lake Ann, MI
      Posted Breed: American Bulldog / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Tucker was left at the shelter by his owners. His time was running out and we knew we could help this boy so we welcomed him into our group. Tucker is about 2 years old and is very pleasant with people. He has a sweet temperament. He gets along well with other dogs but we are not sure of cats at this point but feel he would do fine with older kids. He does love to cuddle and curl up on his bed and just hang out. He enjoys having his head rubbed and his chest rubbed also. He really is not a licker but will occasionally get in your face looking for some extra loving. Tucker is a pretty clean dog and does not get into anything in the house nor does he chew any furniture or anything else up. Tucker is a smart boy and responds real well to verbal communication and knows when you are telling him NO or encouraging him, regardless of the command. He loves to go for a jog or a nice walk and is very good on a leash. He likes to watch the squirrels run all over with a very keen look, but will recall easy when you tell him, no. He is crate trained and is not much of a barker. He also enjoys going for car rides and looks forward to his mom putting him in the car so they can go to the park for some exercise and play time. When Tucker went to the vets, after he came into our group, it was discovered. he had A LOT of crystals in his urine, which the vet feels was caused by his poor diet. This was also causing him to have frequent urination issues. His foster mom is feeding him a prescription food that will prevent his body from forming the crystals. The vet says he MIGHT have to stay on this prescription food, at least for now to make sure no more crystals come back. He was also put on some antibiotics as well. Left untreated, he could have develop urinary stones, but we caught the infection in time. He was also treated for whipworms. Tucker is neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm negative and is free of internal parasites. He is also micro chipped. His adoption fee is $150.

      Posted Breed: Boxer / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Ladybug is a 3 year old girl that is sweet, sweet, sweet. You can tell she is a sweetheart by just looking at her pictures. She has personality and just loves to held and cuddled by her foster mom. We suspect she is mixed between boxer and a pit bull, which quite honestly makes a great dog with a great personality. She knows basic obedience and listens very well. She has been spayed and is current on all vaccines, heart worm negative and free of any parasites. She is also micro chipped. She would do best as the only dog in the house but would do fine around older kids. No kitties for this girl. She is house broken, crate trained and loves to ride around in the car if you are willing to take the girl.

      Breed: Boxer
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Lake Ann, MI
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). Rufus is a big lover !!! He was an owner surrender as they were retired and wanted to travel. So we were very happy they contacted us so we could find Rufus his new family. Rufus is about 8 years old. This boy has some real personality and still has quite a bit of energy and loves to go for walks and car rides. If you want to see Rufus smile with happiness, just ask him if he wants to go for a ride. He also loves to cuddle and be your lap dog too. He is like one big teddy bear - all 76lbs of him. He listens very well when you ask him something. He is very eager to please you and loves anybody that will pet him. Very friendly guy. When Rufus came to us, we did perform a dental on him and extracted a few teeth as they were in bad shape. The vet also removed some gum tissue as well due to some overgrowth. He also had some kind of an infection going on one of his rear legs, but with antibiotics, it cleared up nicely. We also did a urinalysis on him, just to be sure he did not have a current UTI - he was good there. And all of his bloodwork came back in great shape. Rufis is housebroken, crate trained, good with cats and kids. He is good with small dogs, but feels a bit intimidated by dogs that are his size or bigger. He is neutered, current on vaccines, heart worm negative and free of internal parasites. He is also micro chipped.

      Location: Lake Ann, MI
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). A note from Kane's foster mom........Are you looking for a very special dog to add to your home? Kane just might be right for you. Kane has been with us since January 2016 and his foster mom says this boy really has a zest for life that just touches your heart. This boy has been through so much but continues to love every minute of his life. Grab a toy and he is ready to play. Get his leash and he will walk anywhere with you. (Needs a little work in this area as he pulls a bit from excitement) Want to cuddle on the couch ? yep you got it ! He is all for it. He does wear diapers when he is not in his crate or outside but he doesn't mind at all. He stands and lets me put them on! You see Kane is eager to please. So if you have a special spot in your heart for a dog that has had a rough start you might want to consider meeting Kane. Kane LOVES playing with other dogs and is great with kids, even small kids. He is a very easy going boy. He is charming, sweet, funny and always happy-go-lucky. He is neutered, current on all vaccines, heart worm negative, free of internal parasites and is micro chipped. His adoption fee has been sponsored as we are just looking for that really special home that will give this boy so much love and understand his medical needs. Now, a brief description of what is going on with Kane's medical..... He had bladder stones removed in 2015 and was leaking urine, even after having the bladder stones removed. Due to the leakage, Kane's prior owners made him an outside dog. Soon after, he was surrendered to a shelter who contacted GLBR. After numerous tests, seeing the specialists at MSU and surgery, among several other doctors, the doctors have come to the conclusion that Kane's urinary leakage cannot be fixed. Fortunately he is very happy and comfortable wearing doggie diapers! Kane is also prone to urinary tract infections which will need to be carefully managed. Yes, he has some medical issues, but the bottom line is this boy is WORTH the extra effort and any family who adds Kane into their home will be SO lucky!! He has handled all of his doctor visits with a smile and everyone raves about how wonderful he is. Kane is with a foster home who loves him very much, but he can't stay there forever. Kane deserves to find himself a permanent loving home, so let's share his story to help him get there

      Breed: Boxador
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Lake Ann, MI
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Cherish was sitting in a shelter for a couple of months and was not handling it too well. So we brought her into our rescue. She is about 8 years old, and a boxer mix. Cherish is a HAPPY, HAPPY girl and is very appreciative and happy with anything she gets. She listens very well and is very responsive to correction. She would do best as either the only dog or possible with an older dog, like herself, that are more laid back. She doesn't care for the bouncy, active dogs and will ignore them for the most part, unless they get into her space or antagonize her. She would probably do best with older kids too. Her foster mom says she can be a sassy girl and thinks she is a princess at times. She does listen well but there are times she may become stubborn and you have to remind her that she is not in charge. Cherish does have some arthritis in her spine and hips and will need to be on a joint supplement for the rest of her life. She may also need some pain meds now and then, depending on how she is feeling. But other than that, she is a very healthy girl and all of her bloodwork looks great. Cherish is about 8 years old, spayed, current on vaccines, heart worm negative and free of internal parasites. She is also micro chipped. Her adoption fee is $100

      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). HELEN WON'T BE READY TO BE ADOPTED UNTIL MAY 2017 Helen was found as a stray. What makes this even more sad, is she is blind and is also heart worm positive. The people at the shelter loved on her very much, and was so happy when we came forward to bring her into our group. Helen is about 6 years old. She is a very, very sweet girl. Helen is in a very loving foster home, receiving the love and kind hands that this girl so deserves. She will begin her heartworm injections around March 1st. She will also be spayed, have a growth removed from her rear hip and have a good teeth cleaning done. She will not be ready to be adopted at least until May 2017 sometime. We want to be sure she is completely healthy before adoption papers can be signed.

      Location: Lake Ann, MI
      Posted Breed: Boxer (short coat). LUCKY WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION AT LEAST UNTIL MAY 2017. Please check back for further updates. Lucky came to us as an owner surrender. They were not financially able to continue to take care of his medical needs so they reached out to us. They made a great decision because this boy is going to be treated like a king and get all healthy before he is adopted. He came to us with a really bad skin infection and was heartworm positive. His skin was a complete hot mess and had a yeast infection all over his body, along with secondary rashes. His foster parents says the boy is such a gem and he is so funny with his facial expressions and his personality. He is a very easy going, laid back boy that loves to just hang out with whoever will bless him with their time. He loves everybody and everything. He is great with kids and dogs, but not so much with cats. He thinks they are too fun to chase. He is a very calm and friendly boy. His foster mom says he is PERSONALITY PLUS with how he is. Just a wonderful, fabulous boy all the way around. Lucky is housebroken, great on a leash and with his basic obedience. He will be neutered before he is available to be adopted. He is current on all vaccines, and was treated for internal parasites. He is also micro chipped.

Her original owner says that she is good with kids and cats too. She is a sweet and funny girl, with a mature energy level, playful but not crazy. She can be crated or left loose when her people aren't home, without accidents or chewing up household items. She does cry and bark some when first left alone. She would do best with a home where she is not left alone for long periods of time. Casey likes affection, likes to chase a ball, and likes to snuggle and wrestle with people and other dogs. She likes to nap with her people when allowed. She is a mature dog, and does not require constant attention. She is full of personality and is a very sweet girl. She is fully vetted and microchipped. She is temporarily living in a home in Shelby Twp, MI with her foster dad and two other dogs.
