I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Hi there! My name is Grapple. I am an amazing dog. I have a heart of gold and sweet, loving soul. I'm pretty laid back and calm. I walk perfectly on a loose leash. I get along well with other dogs and I'm housetrained. I love to play fetch with the ball and to lounge around the house with my people. I am a super handsome, big-headed blue and white dog in need of a home. I am a fluffy teddy bear on the inside. The volunteers tell me I am an excellent leash walker. I am mild-mannered with a very calm and laid back personality. I'm that typical heartbeat at your feet. I just want to hang with my people, take walks and be loved. I don't ask for much really. Please give me a chance. I'm a good boy and will make a lucky family very happy. I live at the Oakland County Animal Control and Pet Adoption Center at 1700 Brown Rd in Auburn Hills. You can visit me there any time the shelter is open. The shelter will not put me up for adoption because of my appearance, so my only way out of the shelter alive is through a rescue. Apply for me today! I'm ready to go. Adoption fee: $75. Adopt a pair: $115. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, neuter, 60 days of free pet insurance and microchip.

Adoption and Foster Care ApplicationAdoption Process:
NOTE ABOUT BREED LABELING: Visual breed identification of dogs is unreliable and usually inaccurate. So, for most of our adoptable dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
Why is labeling a dog such a big deal? A label will stick with a dog for the rest of its life. A label can mean discrimination, losing its home or even death. Labels are a problem for the dogs when we, as the local experts on animals, allow adopters, politicians and community members to think that the label we assign can predict who that dog is or will be.

. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.
