Story
Barks and Meows Rescue introduces Kyiv. He is an 8-month-old German Shepherd weighing 65lbs. He was found as a stray and will be at least 80lbs when fully grown. Kyiv is a wonderful boy. His age is still up for debate as we believe he is about a month younger as his ears stood up last month and Shepherd's ears are usually up by 4 months. Regardless, he is already 65lb so he will be a big boy when fully grown. He is an absolute dream German Shepherd puppy. He came to us being quite handshy. He was also very mouthy. Though this is a typical Shepherd trait, we have ensured to work with him on this, the younger the better, It was obvious no one had spent time for him, nor did anyone claim him. He learns new things and commands very quickly. He sits on command now and takes treats nicely when in the sit position. Kyiv loves to play with other dogs. He does talk a lot when playing with them. He has a wonderful appetite and is fed twice daily 2 1/2 cups of food. He is housebroken as well as paper trained just in case. He is not crated in his foster home as he has been fine with the other dogs in the home and his toys to keep him occupied. He listens very well. The photographer told us that of all the dogs she has ever photographed in her entire life, he is the best by far for being calm, focused, and not distracted by the other people and dogs in the park. He will require more leash training with his body harness and lead. He rides well in the vehicle. The 2 Veterinarians that have worked with him said he was a really nice, good pup. The ideal home for Kyiv is one where the family has previous herding breed experience. German Shepherd's training never stops. Another female dog to teach him the ropes would really be helpful. The family must be one that includes their dogs in their outdoor activities. Socialization with this breed is very important, both with people and other dogs. Instinct is to protect so the more socialization they get the better. He is not good with cats. We loves children and as he is still in the mouthing stage, his new family, if there are children, would need to be 10 years plus. Kyiv is neutered, fully vaccinated, dewormed, and microchipped. A fully fenced backyard, made of wood, 6-foot high minimum, a Veterinarian History of Compliance and previous German Shepherd or Herding breed ownership are Mandatory to apply for Kyiv. Many thanks to Melissa Caron Photography for their talents.

Story
Ellie is a 5 year GSD. She is a sweet girl who wasn't socialized as a pup. She is unsure of dogs she's not familiar with. So given her age, and what she's been through suddenly losing the only home and family she's ever know, due to unforseen family issues, we would like her to be the only dog as to not cause anymore undue stress in her life. Ellie loves to play fetch, has grown up with kids, but at this point in her life we would suggest older children. She is up to date on vaccines and is spayed. If you are looking for a great companion and have a low key home, please submit an adoption application.

Story
My name is Rubble. Rubble is my name because I was broken and collapsed but my pieces are strong and able to rebuild.At only 3 years old and 58lbs, I am an incredible companion!Sometimes I am a bit nervous about new people but only because I came from a place where I couldn’t count on the humans around me to have the best of intentions. I have learned that my friends working at the shelter are my true warriors and have been fiercely intentional working on the same goal of giving us the best possible love we can have until we get invited into your homes and life.I was able to take part in a fantastic day at Jimmy John’s Baseball Field which let me show my true athletic nature running bases and posing in the dugout. I can hit the ball, but I might just enjoy bringing you the bat instead. I wasn’t ever truly trained on a leash but I do very well when my handler has the patience and discipline to help me understand all good things come to those who wait and work hard. I sit, shake, and love giving humans kisses. I love to get my morning and afternoon zoomies out, but it’s truly human touch and affection that I crave. I can be the warmest cuddled and also love to rough-house and play with my canine friends here at the shelter. I take treats politely and know how to wait patiently for meal times!I have been here too long. Help me rebuild my love in humans. I am available for adoption now at Macomb County Animal Control. I hope you will come see me and my friends soon.If you are interested in adopting me or another homeless pet at Macomb County Animal Control, walk-in adoption hours are Monday-Friday from 10am-4pm. **BISSELL EMPTY THE SHELTERS ADOPTION EVENT TAKES PLACE FROM 7/8 - 7/31. SPECIAL SATURDAY ADOPTION EVENT JULY 20 10am-3pm!**My adoption fee is SPONSORED!

Story
Hi there! My name is Flint, I`m approximately 4 years old and currently weigh about 80#. I came to Macomb County Animal Control on March 27, 2024 after I was hit by a car and dislocated my left shoulder. Upon further examination, it was also discovered that I was Heartworm positive, so for the last 2 months the amazing staff and volunteers have been taking care of me which included several trips to the vet ( I had to wear a cast for almost 2 months), medications and Heartworm injections.The wonderful Veterinarians now say that I am ready to go into my furever home, but I will need a very special home that will consist of knowledge of my breed and characteristics, take me on my follow up visit to the Veterinarian in July (in Flint), making sure that my activity is limited to short walks as I continue to gain strength in my leg/shoulder, limited stairs would be ideal and a home that can give me lots of my favorite snacks (Hot dogs and cheese, oh how I love them!!!).I have had limited interactions with the other dogs since being here due to my injury, but I have been allowed to be a dog that has very low energy and I did fine, I would probably do best as an only dog at the moment until I have gained all my strength back, it wouldn`t be ideal for another dog to jump on me or want to rough house.I have never lived with cats or had the opportunity to interact with any since being here, so if you have one, slow and proper introductions will be necessary for us to live in harmony. I should be fine with children over the age of 10, but I would like to meet them first to make sure that we are the perfect fit.If you are interested in meeting me or another homeless pet at Macomb `County Animal Control, they are open M-F from 10am-4pm.Hope to see you soon,Love, FlintMy adoption fee is $50.If you are unable to Foster or Adopt a homeless pet, please consider making a monetary donation to the Macomb County Animal Welfare Fund so we can continue to help pets like Flint.

Story
Meet Dreamer, a 4 year old German Shepherd who came in as a stray and was never reclaimed by her previous owner.Dreamer is one of those dogs that you just can`t figure out why no one came to reclaim her as she is an absolute DREAM!Dreamer has shown us what a sweet, docile, submissive and gentle girl she is. She appears to have some knowledge of the German language as she responds to `Platz` (down) and `Seitz` (sit), we are still trying to see if there are other words she may respond to.Dreamer is quiet in her kennel and has not had any accidents since her arrival. She likes the company of other dogs that have her same energy level and it does appear that she may have had a few litters in the past. Dreamer walks nicely on a leash, will fetch the ball and will settle nicely with a good rawhide. She seeks your attention and will stay by your side for as many pets as you can give.Dreamer is now dreaming of a new home that is able to give her the love and attention that she deserves which includes daily excersise/stimulation, a fenced yard for exploring, lots and lots of toys and treats and most importantly a home that she will never have to worry about being left again.We are hoping for a home with prior dog handling experience and knowledge of the Shepherd breed. Children are recommended to be over the age of 8. Dreamer has not had the opportunity to meet with any cats since being here, so if you have one, please be sure to do slow and proper introductions.If you`ve been dreaming of the perfect dog, come meet Dreamer at Macomb County Animal Control. They are open M-F from 10am-4pm and will be open this Saturday July 20th from 10am-3pm.Adoption fee is $150.
