Mikey came from another rescue with 3 other family members. When we went to pick him up he was hiding under the persons bed and it took 30 minutes for him to be caught. The panic that this dog suffered broke our hearts. He was afraid of everything and everyone. He was also extremely overweight.
It's taken time, but Mikey is now a trimmed down happier pup. He doesn't hide from anyone and even hangs out with big dogs without being afraid. Mikey has learned that humans can be trusted and even let visitors hold him and give him a massage and pets at our last adoption event. This is one sweet guy! As with all of our dogs, Mikey loves a schedule. He knows when it is cookie time and if we forget he's happy to let us know.
Mikey should go to a quiet home with older children only. He's fine with cats and other animals.
Mikey needs patella (knee surgery) surgery and a dental. We are working on raising funds to pay for his needs. We need to raise $900.
Once he's all fixed up, his adoption fee is $300. He's neutered, up to date on shots, microchipped and crate trained.
