  • Chow Chow-Mastiff Mix Dog For Adoption in MACOMB, MI, USA

    Zoey

    verified verified

    Zoey is a Chow Chow English Mastiff Mix Dog for private adoption by owner in Macomb Michigan. Zoey has a lovely personality. 5 years old and weighing 85 pounds, Zoey is very healthy, fixed, up to date on shots, house trained and well behaved. 1.) She is easy to own, low maintenance 2.) She has those eyes that just melt your heart 3.) She is very sensitive to human emotion and just has a 6th sense when something isn’t right 4.) She is highly expressive and wears her mood on her sleeve, if you will 5.) She is super human submissive and listens without question to human commands Zoey is looking for a very loving home with owners who have lots of time for her. She would do best as an only dog in a home with a securely fenced yard. She has so much love to offer, and her size makes you feel very safe and protected. She loves walks, playing with chew toys and sleeping near the fireplace. Why is Zoey Being Rehomed? It is heartbreaking on a couple fronts, but since my lab has been diagnosed with Cancer, the stress on Zoey has caused her to become very distant, depressed, and more defensive than normal when it comes to things like food. She is used to being fed away from other dogs and any new owner should continue that practice. A home without other dogs may just offer Zoey the best life.She has so much love to give and we would love to have a family looking for a rescue ( I got her from the Michigan Humane Society as a puppy) who have a huge heart to receive all she has to offer. She is so easy to manage in the event the family gets busy and really is more like a cat than a dog. We would love nothing more than for her to be in a family where she can be the center of attention. There is a $150 adoption/rehoming fee. Supplies and veterinary records included. Questions about Zoey? Contact our Detroit dog rehoming team today. Text “Zoey” to (888) 833-2128 or email ZoeyDog-lover.us. We look forward to hearing from you.

    Beagle Dog For Adoption in Wyandotte, MI, USA

    Betsy

    rescue
    Breed: Beagle
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Distance: Aprox. 11.1 mi from Detroit
    Posted Breed: Beagle. Betsy resides at her foster mom's home. Please e-mail beagmom1yahoo for an application, more information or to set up an appointment to meet her. Ten things you need to know about Betsy. Please read them all because I saved the good stuff for last. 1. In July, Betsy was hit by a car. Her pelvis was broken on both sides. Because of this, she walks a little funny. She is not in any pain but may have arthritis as she ages. 2. She tested positive for Lyme disease and was treated. She will need re-tested in January to make sure she tests negative. 3. She was trained as a hunting dog and hunts critters in my yard every day. She has killed small animals. 4. She was kept outdoors in a pen and is not housebroken. While we have made great strides towards that goal, her new family should be prepared to have baby gates to block access to the entire house until she can be fully trusted. She lasts about 4 hours. We have someone let the dogs out at noon and she usually whines to go outside once during the night. Because she was not a house dog, she needs to be treated as if she were a puppy. She chews things and has no concept of what is or isn't a dog toy. She prefers to shred stuffed animals but she has also, on occasion, chewed holes in bottles of hand lotion or torn up paper. 5. She is loud and not suitable for a condo or apartment where her family shares walls with another unit. 6. She suffers from separation anxiety and is currently on Prozac and supplements to keep her calm. She is crated full time when we are not home and she must be in a plastic crate, not a wire one. She can't have a fluffy mat or bed in her crate or it will be shredded so we give her small fleece blankets. 7. Sometimes her anxiety causes her to go to the bathroom in her crate. When we first got her, it happened almost daily. Now it happens every couple of weeks. She is getting better! 8. She is frightened of new people and places but it's because she has never experienced them. I introduced her to a toddler and she was terrified of him because she had never met a child before. 9. She is a beagle...which means she knows how to get on chairs to get on the kitchen table and counters. You absolutely must keep all food put away and trash cans secure or kept in a closet. 10. She is a digger. We have privacy fencing with a narrow patch of dirt underneath and in order to chase the neighbor's cat that sits in our driveway, she dug under the fence. We've had beagles for 18 years and Betsy is the first one to ever outsmart us when it comes to escaping our yard. Now for the good stuff!! 1. Betsy is very snuggly and loves lap time. She would also love to sleep curled up in bed with you. 2. She's wonderful with our cats and has never shown any signs of aggression with them. 3. She is very gentle when taking treats from my hand and has no issues with food aggression. 4. She's relatively quiet outside. 90% of her barking is when she's crated. 5. She rides great in the car. 6. She doesn't beg for food when we eat and has not been given people food. 7. She weighs 21 pounds and is about 4 years old. I'm hoping for even more good things to be added to the list when she finds the perfect forever home. She will need someone who is experienced with beagles/hounds and the issues that go along with having them. While they are great, affectionate dogs, they are also stubborn, food-stealing escape artists. In my 18 years of owning/fostering beagles, Betsy is by far the most challenging for these reasons. She absolutely has the potential to be an amazing family pet with the right home that will have the patience to train her and keep her active and mentally challenged to make up for the fact that she's no longer hunting. If you are interested in Betsy and think you might have what it takes to work with her, please contact me at Beagmom1yahoo. Feel free to ask questions or even offer training suggestions! Betsy's adoption fee is $200. Thank you. **All Shelter to Home animals are fully vetted per their age. We believe in pediatric spay and neuter.

    Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Hi there, my name is Charlie and I am a Pit Bull terrier mix. I reside at my foster mom's home. Please e-mail infosheltertohome for an application, more information or to set up an appointment to meet me. I've spent the last few months getting healthy after spending time in a local animal shelter. My foster Mom says i'm a good boy and am fully potty trained. I dont chew things, except my toys, and when I'm not playing outside, I like to snuggle and take naps. I currently live with a kitty named Chloe who I mostly ignore cause she scares me a little. I haven't ever met a cat before so I watch her if she gets close. I'm getting ready to go to training classes soon and my foster Mom says I'm pretty good walking on a leash although it's new for me. As I am a big boy, I would do best with older kids and adults. **All Shelter to Home animals are fully vetted per their age. We believe in pediatric spay and neuter.

    Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Chinese Shar-Pei Mix
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: USA
    Distance: Aprox. 11.1 mi from Detroit
    Posted Breed: Shar Pei / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Zeus resides at his foster family's home. Please e-mail infosheltertohome for an application, more information or to set up an appointment to meet him. 2 year old Zeus is a happy 80 pound boy who came to us in January. He had Entropian, severe ear infections, and skin issues. We have come a long way since January! His eyes were successfully corrected with surgery and our Dermatologist has determined that the ear and skin issues are due to allergies. To prevent these issues from coming back, Zeus will need to have an allergy shot given at home every 2 weeks. The approximate cost for the shots is $350 per year. Weekly to bi-weekly baths using a hypoallergenic shampoo are also required to help keep the allergies from becoming a problem. Zeus was tested and we know that he is allergic to cat dander, grass pollen, fall weeds, dust mites and tree pollen. He will not be adopted to anyone who has cats since we know this will cause him problems. Zeus loves taking baths! Currently we use the Pet Supplies Plus self serve bath station. He also loves long walks, playing fetch, and earning treats. We have been working on basic commands, he is food motivated so rewarding with treats work great! He is crate trained, stays in it during the day while we work and at bed time also. Zeus has gone to daycare with other dogs and lives with two other dogs in his foster home. Daily exercise and older children are recommended for Zeus due to his size and playfulness. A fenced yard is required and he is not a good fit for someone in an apartment or condo. Adoption fee is $175.00 **All Shelter to Home animals are fully vetted per their age. We believe in pediatric spay and neuter.

Fable will need an owner that can be patient and understanding. She is fully house trained, has spectacular manners and is just a joy to have around.

    Posted Breed: Shih Tzu. Adoption Fee: 300. If interested in any of our animals for adoption, or to foster an animal, please fill out the respective application here to get the process started. Visit our FAQ webpage for commonly asked questions about our adoption/foster process. Quark is a friendly, happy pup. He was not socialized with dogs and has had to learn how to communicate with them, but wants to be friends with them. He is food aggressive, not with treats or toys, only with his bowl of food. He just needs to be fed & left alone while he eats. Quark turns one year old sometime in January & is a tri-color shih tzu. He has sensitive skin & needs vitamin E in his diet. Last Day Dog Rescue now microchips all animals before adoption. Microchips are implanted between the animals shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. The microchips are registered to Last Day Dog Rescue with the adopter's info added once adopted. If the animal is ever lost and slips his/her collar/tags the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact if scanned for a microchip. Animals MUST still have a collar with tags on at all times. Per our contract, we take all our animals back if for any reason you can't keep your adopted animal. Please understand the statements about this animal are based upon the foster home's evaluation of the animal. The animal might behave differently (negatively or positively) in your home. While the animal might be good with the current foster’s dogs, cats, children, etc., it may not be with your animal(s) or children. The animal may be housebroken or litter trained in the home of the foster but may relapse in your home. The animal is represented to the public as it performs in the foster home and any statements made regarding the animal are conditional to that foster home setting. Please understand that statements made regarding this animal are simply overviews and are not guaranteed. The Petfinder system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our animals. Visual breed identification in animals is unreliable so for most of the animals we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each animal as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our animals based on personality, not by breed label. Thank you for looking through our list of animals needing forever homes and choosing rescue first. We appreciate you stopping by.

    rescue
    Breed: Jack Russell Terrier
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Young
    Location: USA
    Distance: Aprox. 22.8 mi from Detroit
    Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier (short coat). Adoption Fee: $285. This is Oscar, a 2 year old Jack Russel Terrier Mix and he weighs about 12 pounds. Oscar has been at the Mikey & Me kennels undergoing a focused training regimen after he was returned for biting his new owner several weeks post-adoption. But please keep reading because Oscar is not an aggressive dog in any sense of the word. (We don’t know what triggered that event but I have been evaluating and working with him for weeks now and Oscar can be very easily managed without giving him the opportunity to lash out or bite again). I am looking for an experienced Jack Russell Terrier owner to adopt Oscar. He is a very sweet little boy but he has struggled being contained in a kennel without the level of attention he craves and needs, as is notorious for the breed. Jack Russell Terriers like being the center of attention and I believe he would only bite as a way of communicating after his other attempted body language failed. This is the way we have decided to approach his training and it has been very successful. In just three weeks Oscar has gone from reacting very loudly to being put back in his kennel (and climbing the gate in a crazed manner) to now going into the kennel on his own and sitting quietly as I exit the kennel area. We will be moving to phase 2 of his training on Thursday. I’m hoping to find a person who would be willing to work with me and to continue Oscar’s training at his new home. (Mikey & Me is paying for Oscar’s training using some of the donations we have received in recent weeks). Oscar loves taking long walks, he is absolutely crazy about his toys, and he likes having treats in puzzle toys that keep him busy. He is confident and walks outside like he’s the head of the pack. Oscar has been neutered and he is up to date on his shots and heart worm test. Please help me find the right home for Oscar where he will have the opportunity for success. I would adopt him myself if I didn’t already have a Blue Tick Coon Hound that would eat him for lunch. ‍♂️ I will appreciate it very much if you can share Oscar’s story with your friends and family. If you would like to meet and interact with Oscar, please message me here. Applications for his adoption can be submitted at happydaysdogandcatrescue.
