Hello, my name is Miko! Are you looking for an easy walking companion? If so, you have to meet me! I walk so well on a leash that all the shelter volunteers are amazed. They're so used to excited dogs pulling their arms off that I'm a welcome surprise and an enjoyable walk together. I am such a lovebug. I LOVE to cuddle on the couch and kibble ears (kibble = kisses + nibbles). I am extremely food motivated and really smart, which makes training a fun activity for everyone. I am a quick learner and I pick up new things pretty fast. I also listen very well, especially when there is a treat reward involved. I am a sweet, friendly and mellow boy with an affectionate and loving personality. I have a handsome brindle coat and kind, soulful eyes. I'm a 3-year-old, neutered male mutt in need of a home. I weigh 61 lbs. I really like people and spending time with them. I'm pretty laid back and like to just go-with-the-flow. I get along well with cats and with other dogs and enjoy playing with toys. But I'm much more interested in being with people who love me. Now I'll tell you about a couple of my quirks. I can and will climb or go under a chain link fence to greet people walking by. I do best in a 6-foot privacy fenced yard or no fence at all and I'm walked on leash for exercise and potty time. I get along fine with other dogs when properly introduced so long as there are no bones, no rawhides, no chew chips, etc. around. I am possessive of those types of toys when around other dogs. I'm absolutely great with people though! Give me some pets and let's go for a walk. We'll be besties for life. Apply today! Adoption fee: $75. Adopt a pair: $115. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, 60 days of free pet insurance and microchip.

Adoption and Foster Care Application

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.

Adoption Process:
Complete the application at www.pawsforliferescue.org. 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.

About Paws for Life Rescue and Adoption

About Our Rescue Group...

Paws for Life Rescue and Adoption is a 501c3 non-profit animal welfare organization, run by hard-working dedicated volunteers who rescue homeless, neglected, abused and abandoned dogs, cats, puppies and kittens. We use a network of loving foster care homes where animals stay until their forever homes find them.

Our mission is to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. We believe in matching animals and families to find the right fit for everyone. We promise to exhaust all efforts to place adoptable pets in lifelong, loving homes. Our goal is to find the best home possible for the homeless pets in our care.

We host adoption events the last Sunday of every month from noon to 4 p.m. at PetPeople, 6520 Telegraph Rd., Bloomfield Hills.
