Midas is approximately eight pounds with a birth year of spring, 2013.  His story goes as so many before him, sadly.  Discarded on a country highway with two other small dogs.  Landowners there tried not to get involved but finally one of the neighbors initiated contact.  With no one willing to claim this little fella, he found his way to an Ozark Haven foster mom!  He arrived scared, alone and discarded....... A little guy from nowhere not sure of where his path is leading him.  

Midas has flourished in foster care and has even become somewhat adventurous.   He enjoys his outside free time but must have a safety enclosure to explore to keep him home!  He has used the doggy door going OUT but needs a helping hand to come back in :):)  He would benefit from some very clear  and precise housetraining during his acclimation period so he knows where to go and how to ask to get there!  He must know zero tolerance for alternate behavior in this regard.  Being a people person, he is eager to please and acclimation training is something all of them need.  Midas has exhibited great citizenship with the other kids.   He is happy all the time and bounces and smiles everyday!  

Midas enjoys his doggy buddies but craves human bonding in a most powerful way.  He would be ideal for empty nesters with a doggy housemate.   A quiet home would be ideal, he does react with fear to loud noises or surprise chaos.  Not a kid dog at all. 

We do believe that somewhere in his history he faced an aggressive human and he has not forgotten, firm but quiet and ALWAYS GENTLE is the key to this kids success.  Ideally with breed type experience.

Midas is neutered, current on shots and worming, ready to love forever!  His adoption donation is $150 of which $125 is tax deductible.  

About Ozark Haven Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are small group of individuals in Southern Missouri dedicated to the rehabilitation of homeless animals. We help all creatures, promote kindness to animals, respect for the earth and hope to launch a campaign in the next rescue year to combat the pet overpopulation problem in Southern Missouri.
The attitude towards animals here is not a good one; they are viewed and treated, mostly, as chattel. When they are no longer cute, or useful, they are dumped, shot, or just let go. We serve poor, rural communities, whose people do not have the money to pay for their own medical care, let alone veterinary expenses for their pets. Spaying and neutering is not the norm here at all, so we have a huge population of unwanted dogs and cats.

Our Adoption Process...

We do have an adoption process requiring an application. We do require our adoptive homes have strong and verifiable spay/neuter histories that we are able to confirm via our Application Processing team. We will not tolerate or entertain unaltered pets. We are available to answer any questions at all by way of email at Kristinawak@yahoo.com or Ozarksummer@yahoo.com

More criteria for adoption can be viewed at www.petfinder.com/shelters/MO401.html and an online submission application for adoption can be found at this url; http://members.petfinder.org/~MO207/app.htm
