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
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.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Meet DJ, one of our newest residents at the Mikey & Me kennels for Happy Days Rescue.  DJ is a very affectionate little boy, likely a Boxer/Terrier mix. He’s believed to be 3-4 years old, he weighs about 35 pounds, and he has a beautiful, reverse-brindled coat of black and chocolate brown. DJ was scared when he first arrived at Mikey & Me but after an evening of love and attention he warmed right up.   DJ walks easily on leash, without pulling, and he’s very much enjoyed meeting and interacting with some of our other dogs. DJ has already had his vaccinations and his first Vet appt. is on Friday where he will receive booster shots and will be given a heart worm test. DJ and two siblings were found in a field, fending for themselves, and he was somewhat emaciated upon intake. DJ is starting to put on weight now and his personality is coming to life. He has his humble moments and he is clearly thankful for the care he is now receiving.  If you would like to meet DJ, please submit an adoption application under his name at happydaysdogandcatrescue,org.   Happy Days Dog and Cat Rescue microchips all dogs and cats before adoption.

Due to family situation, she has now returned to Last Day and is looking for a new home. One of her most important things she needs is a bed to sleep in with you. She has moderate energy and loves to run so she would love a fenced in yard of her own to run around in.  She will then settle down nicely and snuggle on the couch with her people. &#226&#128&#139 We will continue to learn more about her and will update her bio soon.

Visit our FAQ webpage for commonly asked questions about our adoption/foster process. Do you have tennis balls, like a lot of them, if not will you buy some? If your answer is yes than you might be the home for me! See I am simple girl but I do require lots of tennis balls!! I like other toys but nothing gets me as excited as having tennis balls! My foster says I am just a happy gal, that is good with all people even kiddos! I am house broken, but I may have had a couple accidents but I am still recovering from taking care of my 5 babies for the last several weeks. They all have found their forever homes and now it’s my turn. I was a great mom but my foster promised I never ever have to do it again, which sounds perfect to me! I really love my foster home. See, I also get alone time and have my own room, I have adults and kids who play fetch with me a few times a day. They all helped me get better on the leash, to come when I was called, I am actually even starting to learn how to settle down and watch TV. I would probably like to stay here but they have some big dogs here, I just don’t like when they get in my way. My foster thinks I will much prefer to be the only dog in a home.  I think that is true at least to start. The cats here don’t bother me. Did I mention my NEED for tennis balls, oh I did, okay. Well that’s all for now.
