We do our best to provide information that will help determine if the animal might be a good fit for you. Please note that behaviors may change in a home environment. We also ask our applicants to assume that any animal they adopt from us will need to be potty-trained and learn house manners, although this is not always the case. In most cases, the listed breeds are also a best guess. Our online animal bios are designed to provide as much information as possible and answer some anticipated questions. We do not have the resources to respond to emails with more specific questions.We are receiving an unusually high number of applications at this time! Applications are reviewed as they are received, but we do not select adopters on a first-come basis. Our job is to ensure each pet is placed into the best fit home for them and that adopters are paired with an animal that is a good fit for their lifestyle. All animals will stay on Petfinder until they are “pending adoption”. Therefore, if an animal is still listed, we are still accepting applications for him/her! Please do not send inquiries about a specific animal's availability as this can change quickly over the course of the day. The fastest way to get a response is to simply submit an application! We will do our best to notify you by email if the pet(s) you are interested in are no longer available. New animals are posted daily, so please let us know if another furry friend peak your interest (there is no need to fill out a second application)!

Story
MAD boy Cain is one of the most handsome Dutch Shepherds we’ve seen.  His heart and will to survive have seen him through extremely tough experiences, but he is now ready to shine for the right adopter. Cain was used as a fight dog, and arrived at his foster’s home with a leg injury, and a broken spirit and heart.  He trusted no one, wouldn’t let anyone near him for weeks.  Slowly but steadily, Cain has been learning how to trust his foster, be cared for, and now has a new excitement for life. This gorgeous guy has learned to be playful and is good with other dogs.  He is still fearful of new experiences, and especially of men.  He stays close to his foster mom and avoids other people at this time, but the strides he has made are heartwarming and he continues to slowly gain confidence. Cain is crate trained, house trained, knows sit and is learning down.  He is treat-motivated, which has facilitated his training. He is fine on a leash and has great recall.  He can also not only jump a 6’ fence but he can scale fences as well, so he will need extra attention for a while until he is not a flight risk.  His foster is now teaching him perimeter boundaries to curtail the fence jumping. Cain will need a female adopter who is very experienced with high drive breeds.  He needs ongoing structure, training and a patient, loving place wherein he can continue to learn trust and feel safe.  He has had a rough life, but deserves a great life now.  He needs his special person, who can give him the love and support he needs to thrive.    If you are interested in adopting this pet please complete an application at this link https://petstablished.com/adoption_form/24689/generic.  All dogs come with a Fi tracking collar and a one-year subscription to the GPS service. We are an official 501c3 organization that does not have a physical location. Our home address is in Michigan, however, the majority of our dogs are not located in Michigan. The physical location of each animal is posted with the name of the dog in the title area. If you are within 4 hours of the dog, please be prepared to pick the pet up. We do provide transport assistance up to 350 miles. The applicant must drive the remainder of the distance of the transport.  The basic information that we have available is in our posting, but sometimes fosters will post updates on the MAD Rescue Facebook page as well, https://www.facebook.com/groups/malinoisanddutchshepherdrescueinc. If you would like to further inquire on this animal, please fill out this application. Applications that are completed in our process and being considered as a match will speak to the foster home to gain more information about our adoptable dog.

Story
Mayhem is a high drive (and high energy) Long Hair (some call him a stock coat) Dutch Shepard. He is around a year old, but his previous life was extremely sheltered. When he first came into MAD he truely knew nothing. Everything was brand new and he was on sensory overload. Something as simple as a dove flying across the sky, a cat walking across the field, another dog barking, or even a stranger walking up to say hello was a threat that HE had to deal with. He would bark, growl, and lunge at the threat to make it all go away. A short 3.5 months later, with a some basic training, Mayhem is a different dog. When on leash he can walk past chickens running across the yard, inbetween the horses, and even greet the cat with a quick nose push. He loves to fetch a ball (or other toy) and drop it at your feet to have you throw it again (and again, and again). He loves to find "lost" items like his ball and bring it to you. He will also follow a scent trail that catches his interest to the very end to find the reward. He would excel at several working dog jobs. All he needs is someone that is willing to put the time in to polish his basic training and keep adding on to it. He can still be reactive to other dogs when they get too close and act aggressive. However, once he gets to know the other dog he will play with them for hours and follow them all over the place. He plays like a very young puppy. In fact, in almost all instances Mayhem behaves like a puppy because he had no training or socialization before he came to MAD. New people can be introduced fairly easily, especially if a wonderful food treat is given by the new friend. He loves his humans, but not recommended for young children as he really just doesn't realize how fast he can knock someone over.   What Mayhem is looking for is a human that can continue explain the world to him. He needs a strong and kind leader to tell him how to accomplish goals and show him just how amazing he can be. Someone to give him a job that will engage his very smart mind and agile body. It will take some dedication and time, but this dog is worth every minute! #madloveMayhem ##1995990##
