Story
Hi my name is Royalty! I am a shy kind of dog who is looking for a patient owner who is willing to give me time to adjust and open up in my new home. Once I get more comfortable, I will come out of my shell and start to show more of my true personality. If you are interested in meeting me, please fill out an adoption survey online or in the shelter. Royalty has heartworm which means that this dog has parasitic worms in the right ventricle of the heart and nearby blood vessels. Heartworm is transmitted from one dog to another by mosquitoes and can be easily prevented using monthly heartworm preventative, but once the disease is contracted the treatment process can be quite intensive. Royalty will need to remain sedentary with minimal activity during the treatment process to ensure a healthy recovery. There is additional information on heartworm disease and treatment available at our Adoption Desk.

Story
Hi, I'm Spencer! Since you're reading this, you're obviously looking for a new best friend- and, hey, so am I!!! I came to FMAR as a stray and my heartworm test was positive. I am so lucky that one of the FMAR volunteers fell in love with me and took me home with her while I was going through my heartworm treatment. I am done with that and am ready to find my forever home.I would love a quiet home with a patient owner who will allow me to come out of my shell at my own pace. I can get overexcited and loud when I see other dogs and cats and sometimes even people that I don't know. I would be happy to be the only pet in your home but if you have a quiet and passive dog, I might feel comfortable with them. I have a lot of love to give! If your have room in your heart and home for me, I'm waiting to meet you!If you would like to meet me, please submit an application for me on our website https://www.friendsofmichigan.org/adoptable-dogs. I am neutered, up to date on all age appropriate vaccines, microchipped, and on monthly flea, tick, and heartworm prevention. My adoption fee is $250, which covers all of the medical care I have received.*Each dog is different, so each adoption is different. The adoption process may require multiple visits to the shelter before a dog can go home with you. Or they may be ready on the first visit. It depends on the individual dog and the potential adopters. Once we receive your application, the Dog Staff will contact you to discuss meeting our dogs.

Story
Let me tell you my story....My name is Buddy and when I came to FMAR as a stray, you could see my ribs because I was so skinny and my feet were so swollen that I couldn't walk. FMAR has taken wonderful care of me and I've gained some weight and my feet have gotten better. . My bouncy spirit is through the roof!!! I get very excited and sometimes bark a lot. I used to bark at all other dogs but now I'm used to a few. I still haven't played with another dog yet but I might do fine if we have a slow and proper introduction. Right now, I don't know many commands but I'm eager to learn! I'm very food motivated so that will make my training easier. I'm a bundle of endless energy and love to PLAY, PLAY, PLAY!

Story
Hi! I'm Bones!! I am a big boy who doesn’t understand his size or strength, but a lover!!! He’s living his best life playing, exploring and loving the humans taking care of him! The world is very new to him so he is learning. There are a lot of things that he is scared and unsure of. It takes time patience and reassurance.  His leash manners are not the best and most certainly a work in progress. He is a puller, but I know he will and can learn he just needs someone to show him patience and consistency. It is also going to be trial and error when it comes to what leash he will respond to best. We used a shorter slip lead leash we had at home the leash for the harness was way to long for him at this time. We found with the longer leash he was in control and could pull more during walks. This again will come in time with patience and consistence. We have been working on sitting and waiting as we go outdoors. He is very treat motivated and was able to hold a sit and stay until I released him. I have him sit and then put the leash on.  He also responded well to correction and redirection. We used no sir and come here and he responds to those very well. Bones is an amazing dog and I know with love, kindness, patience and consistency he will continue to grow and flourish and make a beautiful addition to his forever home. He only ever had 1 accident in the house and it was during the food change, but nothing since so I believe he just had an upset stomach. He’s a big dog who thinks he is a lap dog and just wants all the love and snuggles.  ##1970520##

Story
Ellie is a beautiful young girl that found her way to us after being found as a stray.  She is a girl with young dog energy, and loves playing with her dog brothers and sisters at the Ranch.  Squirrels get her attention and she loves to chase them, so best to have her in a fenced in yard.  Ellie finds enjoyment in all humans! Give her a lap and she will crawl right in for snuggles.  She has learned stay and is good about listening around open doors, and we know she could learn so much more as she loves to try new things and please her owners. While she can be a food thief on counters at times, she is working super hard about avoiding them temptation.  She is also used to being around little humans and does beautifully with them. Ellie is wonderful with other dogs, but we notice that high value treats are best given separately so no one gets jealous - which is something we advocate for all around.  She may prefer a brother, but meet and greets will best set her up for success. She is fully vaccinated, spayed and microchipped and on heartworm prevention. ##1807017##

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. **PLEASE READ ENTIRE BIO BEFORE APPLYING*** Lance is loving, treat motivated, goofy, eager to please his hoo-mans and has the biggest vocabulary of any dog I’ve ever encountered—his vocal arias are amazing, from tiny soft squeaks to big base notes. Most of his talk is about treats and food, and how he would like more of it. He loves to snuggle and get ear skritchies.  He adores his blankies, warm jammies, coats and hats. He also has his own stash of favorite stuffies. He loves helping pre-wash the dishes and working out in the barn every morning. He is very well trained. He has commands for going to his mat, as well as putting on his “fancy pants” —more on that below. He is an amazing dog looking for the bestest home ever. Lance came to rescue as a pup, with an injury that prevented him from using all four legs.  But nobody told Lance that. He began to stand, walk, sit, jump and eventually to run and do play-bows like any other normal dog.  Lance’s recovery is nothing short of a miracle. We think that his injury was caused by a human, as this was common to see in the area where he came from --San Antonio, Texas.  Around the time we got Lance, another adult dog was locked in between two gates at the neck and his head was beaten severely with a stick. He hung that way for several hours before Animal Control arrived. As a puppy, we think Lance's head was likely put/stuck under a gate, and he struggled to free himself, damaging his spine and lower leg bones in the process. We did not think Lance deserved to die because of what had happened to him. His spinal injury is at T-3, right in front of the shoulder blades. It is covered with a protective layer of thick scar tissue, and according to the Rehab Vet, it should not be able to be dislodged. But, active play with other large dogs and where humping and T-boning from the side could re-injure him.  Lance lives with other dogs, but we manage his play and interactions carefully. Lance must be walked using a gentle leader head collar, as a regular collar/harness would put too much pressure on his injury site, which is just behind where a regular collar would sit. Nerves begin to heal at 18 months out from the injury, so this pup has been working on gaining strength in his hindquarters.  He has superb neck and shoulder development and muscular rear legs, but he has a little bit different stance when viewed from the side. When he walks and runs he has his own style of movement, due to his crooked limbs. His nickname here is “Launch" because he can jump to amazing heights, and bounces around when he gets excited. He can jump up on the couch with ease. So, how is it that this Superpup has not found his forever home?  Well, you see, it’s his pooper. Lance sometimes has issues with poop control, sometimes when he is asleep.  His nerves are still regenerating, and he is 80% successful, but poop happens. He goes out for short walks several times a day.  It is becoming rare for him to have an accident inside the house, of any variety. He has gone from zero control over his bowels and urinary tract to almost complete recovery.  Lance has worked hard on his potty training. He is about the equivalent of a 5-6 month old pup.  We use belly bands when we know there will be lots of excitement, and Lance is trained to go to his mat and wait to put on his “fancy pants” whenever we ask. We are looking for an extra special home for Lance: A positive but firm training style is a must.  Lance is a gentle soul at heart, but he can become overwhelmed and frightened sometimes. He can also be protective of his home, e.g. he barks at jumps up when the UPS man makes deliveries. At home, he can be reactive to vehicles, but when at events located on busy roads and in parking lots with traffic, he has exhibited no reactivity. Previous Bully Breed experience is strongly preferred, and you need to have owned a dog before. Patience and knowledge of how to care for an older or debilitated dog are very important.  There are things that Lance cannot physically control, so management and routine are very important. The best home for Lance would be willing to commit to swim/underwater treadmill therapy, and be prepared to do maintenance of Lance’s joints in the future should arthritis set in. If you have a swimming pool, this could be done at home. Another option would be an inflatable pool in summer, and swim at an Animal Rehab Center in the winter.  Right now we use turmeric, fish oil, and other supplements, but in the future Adequan injections and other supportive measures may be needed to keep him comfortable. Lance is a country mouse, and is looking for a Zen Garden type of home.  An older or calm female large breed dog of the same age might be a match. Lance currently lives with L/XL male dogs with no issues. He would love at least one doting human of his own, but no young children please.  Teens are okay, as long as they are dog savvy. Lance enjoys car rides and wears a harness.  He loves going out to pet stores and has visited home depot.  He loves getting attention from everyone. He has behaved very well at crowded adoption events. He has learned to ignore cats. A doggy door into a secure yard, an expen or gated area inside on non-carpeted surfaces for ease of clean up, soft washable bedding and/or litter box system would be great tools to help Lance continue to work on his potty control. Lance eats premium dog food and raw dog food. His digestive system does best on that diet and we are willing to provide education and support to help you continue this diet. Lance must be kept lean in order to reduce pressure on his joints. He cannot be allowed to become overweight. So, if you are the unicorn home described above, please send in your application.  If you are not the right match for Lance, please consider becoming a sponsor. Or perhaps send him a toy.  He loves his stuffies and woobies very much. Happy Days Dog and Cat Rescue microchips all dogs and cats before adoption. Microchips are implanted between the shoulder blades and are another form of identification should the animal get lost. The microchips are registered to    Happy Days Dog and Cat Rescue. The adopter's information is added once the adoption is complete. The adopter is responsible for a $19.99/Year registration fee or a $45.00/Lifetime registration fee to change information.    Dogs and Cats still need to have collar with tags should they get lost.    Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.May 27, 2024, 4:41 pm
