Story
Hazel would love nothing more than life with an athletic family to take her on runs, hikes or to the lake. She is a young adult with a good natured personality, which is likely what helped her survive her previous owner. Hazel lived in a "pay by the week" motel room in Southgate for almost a year. Her owner eventually abandoned her in that room. She deserves a responsible person who will see having a companion like Hazel as the honor it is. Interested in meeting or adopting Hazel?

Story
Libby is a two-year-old Caucasian Shepherd that was found as a stray. She does have a permanent health condition that makes her Special Needs. We noticed right away that she has a strange gait and we were concerned, so she saw a specialist. The tests showed some undetermined neurological issues and arthritis, as well as dysplasia in all four limbs. This causes her to walk in a wobbly way. These things do not stop this determined, lovable girl ,though. She will &#194&#147run&#194&#148 around the yard and play with the kids, and chew on bones all day long. She is a very unique dog that will need a particular home to spend the rest of her life in. There are some specific requirements for her to safely walk aruond. Minimal stairs, and carpet or a lot of area rugs. The home will also need a gated yard with open access to the door, such as a sliding door, French doors, or a door that is not on a landing or down steps. Most importantly, she needs a home with all the love and kisses to give to her! Regular trips to the groomer Libby is great with kids and has been in her foster home for a few months with 9, 7, and 3 year old kids. She also is currently living with two other large breed dogs. She would likely do best in a home with non guardian breeds, and has not been around smaller dogs. She has only been around cats once that we know of, and she didn't seem like a huge fan of them. Libby is currently on an anti-inflammatory medication twice a day, potentially for the rest of her life, cost is around $60-$70 a month. She is a big girl and with that also comes lots of food. She eats about 7-8 cups of food a day, and the water bowl will always need refilling. Libby is just a big cuddly bear that needs all the love she can get. Please contact us if you have questions or would like an application to adopt. **All Shelter to Home animals are fully vetted per their age. We believe in pediatric spay and neuter. All animals will be spayed or neutered, tested for FIV/FeLV or heartworm, given age-appropriate boosters and rabies, dewormed, flea treated, and anything extra that is needed to give this animal a wonderful forever life in a permanent home. Adoption fees are usually $50 for cats and between $150-$250 for dogs, unless the pet is sponsored or we are running a promotion.

Story
Brooke is a sweetheart! Very outgoing and loves to give kisses! She was picked up by police when she was witnessed wandering along a very busy street. No one ever came for her. If you're looking for an engaging dog to take hiking or on the boat, Brooke would be your girl. Be sure to check out our Facebook page at Wyandotte Animal Shelter (https://www.facebook.com/wacshelter/) for day to day updates on our cats and dogs. :) Thank you for your interest in adopting! If you think the animal in this profile might be a good fit for your home and would like to meet them, here's how! !. Go to our website at wacshelter.com. 2. Click on the Apply To Adopt button to submit an online adoption application. NOTE: You will get an email confirmation that we have received your application. If you do not see this email appear upon submission, please check your "spam" folder. 3. Your application will be processed and a volunteer will call or email with any questions. NOTE: If any questions are left unanswered or incomplete, the application cannot be processed. A completely filled out application will take 1-3 days to process! 4. We will set up a time with you to meet the animal you've applied to adopt! ** We DO give preference to applicants with verifiable dog experience as a primary caretaker. All dogs are spayed/neutered, heartworm negative unless otherwise indicated. All are up to date on age appropriate vaccinations and current on heartworm prevention! Additional questions... Does this dog get along with cats? There is almost always an acclimation period when a new pet joins the household. We are happy to suggest a few ways to ease the transition. If one of our dogs is reported to have lived with cats previously, that will be indicated in the dog's description! Does this dog react well to other dogs? No dog loves every other dog, just as humans do not like every other human they meet. A proper introduction (meet and greet) would be required as part of our application process. Is this dog good with children? The better question is how the children have been taught to handle animals. A dog will respond negatively if he/she is not being handled properly. We can offer suggestions on how to teach children to interact with dogs and pay attention to body language. Young children should never be left unsupervised with new dogs. How did this dog end up in a shelter? The top reasons dogs are given up are: Moving without considering the needs of the pets Death of the owner with no plan in place for the pets Previous owner did not provide appropriate training Owner did not consider the lifespan of a dog Owner did not consider the cost of providing for a dog

Story
Hi!  Thank you for clicking on my photo to read about me. My birthday is October 31, 2023.  Isn't it cool that I was born on Halloween?  I'm sure glad I wasn't given a spooky name...I like being Pete.  The vet says I'm a lab/pit mix and that when I'm all grown up, I should weigh 40-50 pounds.  I have fur like a lab and even have cute, webbed toes.  When I was just a tiny puppy, I was attacked by a big dog and hurt very badly.  I had a tear in my trachea and my cheek bone was broken.  I spent time at the ER vet before being transferred to a specialist to have surgery.  My foster mommy took really good care of me and kept me calm while I healed.  Do you know how hard it is for a puppy to stay calm???  I had to stay in a crate and wasn't allowed to play with the other dogs.  It was torture!  Those days are over now, and I can play with my big brothers all day long.  Well, we play really hard and then nap for a few hours.  There are more photos of me sleeping than of me getting into puppy trouble. My big brothers are 100lb labs. They've helped me forget all about that big dog that wasn't nice to me. When I was little, I liked to use them for pillows, but I can't get away with that anymore.  There is a 4 year old who comes over every day and I love her!  We play and then we cuddle. I don't have much experience with stuffed toys because one of the big dogs just destroys them.  We have lots of chew bones, and I like to pick up sticks in the yard.  I'm a good boy outside and don't get into nearly as much trouble as I did when I was little. When I have to go potty, I ring some bells hanging from the door.  I sleep in bed with my foster mommy and I sleep through the night most nights.  If I do have to go out, I go out, take care of business, then come right back in to bed.  Mommy is retired and home most of the time, but sometimes I have to go in a crate when she isn't home.  I don't like it very much at all and like to voice my opinion about it.  I'm getting better about it, but it's something we're still working on. I probably shouldn't live in an apartment, though. I would love a fenced yard so I can run around and burn off energy.  Another dog to play with would be a definite bonus.  I'm not sure a home with tiny kids is best because of all my energy and strength as I grow, but my foster mommy wants what is best for me and she will make sure any new home is the perfect fit for everyone.  Please contact her right away if you'd like to talk about me.  **All Shelter to Home animals are fully vetted per their age.
