My story

Our Ringo lost his mom recently, and his dad a few years back. Our adoption contracts have a binding return. He was one of our most popular rescues (you can search his name on our Facebook page to read about him at entry). He's obviously confused and after 7 years he doesn't remember us at all. He's looking for a new family. He sure is a great boy. He's a little older (around 8 years young), he's great with people and other dogs too and has been perfect about his house training. He still doesn't seem to miss a step without his front right leg either. He loves snuggling in bed according to his foster, and can jump on the couch without any help. He's a corgi mix and he should weigh around 30 lbs but needs to lose a few pounds to ease the stress on his front leg. He'll be back on adoptapet soon, listed as the perfect dog. If you want to inquire about this distinguished three legged sweetheart, please send us an email at

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Please click on the pet you're interested in and read his/her profile and requirements prior to calling us for a phone consult. If the pet's profile states no children, a fenced yard, etc. these are requirements, not suggestions. All requirements will be verified during application screening and at the time of the required home visit. Please be patient when waiting for a call back as we're all volunteers. The number to call can be found in each pet's profile. Regrettably, we cannot do rescue business via text, facebook or email, so a volunteer who knows the dog in question will return your call at their earliest convenience. All of our dogs are fully and thoroughly evaluated in foster homes prior to being available for adoption. WOOF!

More about this rescue

Mutts of Motown is a very small Detroit based rescue. Our goal is to save dogs and some cats who are in danger, abused, abandoned or neglected. Because we are so small and due to lack of funding and foster homes, we work with many 501 c-3 non profit groups who often take in many of our Detroit rescues. Sometimes we provide care, spays, neuters, straw, dog houses and even dog food to those who need it and cannot afford it, or refuse to provide it for their pets. Because of the great numbers of animals being killed in our shelters nationwide we urge you to fix your pets and urge your government officials to change laws about backyard and basement breeding as well as passing spay and neuter laws nationwide. We believe with these laws in place shelters wouldn't be needed in a few years. California has some of these laws in place now. We should follow this example and stop allowing our tax dollars to go towards the killing of unwanted animals.
