Story
Mia is a very sweet girl, she is potty trained, highly intelligent, good with kids (even young crazy ones), dogs, and cats. She is high energy and likes going on runs, she needs a yard she can run in. She eats only grain free food. She talks Husky talk and when she's given a bath, she likes to scream the Husky scream. Other than being given a bath, she is good about being in a crate (despite her high energy). She has AKC papers and she is up to date on shots. We never sent in the AKC papers because we didnt intend on breeding her. She is not fixed just because we were waiting for her to get older. Anyone would be lucky to have her ♡

Story
Cash is the biggest, sweetest lap dog. Due to my health, I can no longer handle a large dog. He does not like cats. But he loves a recliner where he can sit and become the King. We are the only home he has had so there will need to be a adjust period. He can be Scared of new things. So be patient please. We live on a farm, so farm animals are ok, not sure about chickens because we do not keep them. He hates his nails cut. He has since we got him at 6 months old. We usually sedate him to cut them. Older children would be best because he has never been around babies and toddlers. Any other questions please call

Story
HI!!! My name is Pollo and I'm such an extraordinarily intelligent boy! When I first arrived at FMAR as a stray, over 2 years ago, I was so skinny that you could see my ribs. I've been waiting all this time for someone to come and meet me so I can show them how wonderful I am!Almost everyone thought that I was a Pit Bull Terrier mix but when a volunteer did a DNA test on me, guess what they found?!! In the sunlight, you can really see my Rottie coloring. 52% Rottweiler 27% American Pit Bull Terrier 16% American Staffordshire Terrier 3% American BulldogI have dreams of becoming an agility dog! I have so much fun when the volunteers set up an obstacle course for me! You should see how high I can jump over a hurdle! I also love just hanging out in the yard and relaxing. Sometimes I'm a little nervous meeting new people, but I LOVE treats so give me a couple and I'm your best friend!I need an experienced owner who will challenge my brain and body every day. I like the challenge of eating meals from a Kong Wobbler. If you have children, I hope they are older. I have a whole lot of energy, and may be a bit too much for some families. However, a lot of energy also means a lot of LOVE!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, heartworm negative, 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. One we receive your application, the Dog Staff will contact you to discuss meeting our dogs.
