Story
Titus, a senior 12 year old lab mix, is as gentle and sweet as can be! He is looking for the perfect home to live out his senior years. He currently lives with three kids (the youngest of which is 11). While he lives, and does well with, his foster family’s resident female dog, he does not do well with most other dogs. He also can not go to a home with cats. Titus absolutely loves every single person he’s ever met and he shows his excitement in the funniest ways! His ideal home would have someone who is home most of the day, although he can be left for several hours and do just fine. He loves being with people, but is also just as happy to nap in another room…just don’t be surprised when he shows up to check on you after he wakes up. Titus gets spurts of silly playfulness and enjoys playing with toys, especially bones and toys that make noise. He has a couple of habits his foster family would like you to know about. He likes to sleep on couches and dog beds. He loves going outside but, due to arthritis, he prefers not to go for walks. Also, he likes to carry his food bowl around room to room when he's eating…you can always find him by following the trail of spilled food. He'd do best if his bowl is stabilized so he can't move it. And when he meets a friendly person, he’ll walk in between their legs and stand there until he is petted. He’s a big dog and it is funny to see, but it can be rather unexpected to others! He came to his foster family with this habit and he is not interested in breaking it, it’s how he shows his affection!And speaking of food, Titus came to the rescue extremely overweight. His previous owner, who had him for about five months, worked very hard with him and helped him lose ten pounds. He has lost an additional 13 pounds while with his foster family. He is also a little picky with the food he will eat. Through trial and error, we've discovered some that make his 'favorite' list.Recent medical records state that Titus has arthritis, and he recently started taking medication. The medication is definitely helping him. He can do some stairs like when going outside, but he currently lives in a two story house and will not go up an entire flight of stairs. He also has some lipomas, likely due to his old age. He has had these checked out by the vet and no action/treatment was recommended for them.If you think you'd like to meet Titus to see if he'd be a good fit, you can check him out on the KAR's website. His foster parents are BValade.    The adoption fee for Titus is $200.Please complete our online application form if you are interested in adopting Titus. A volunteer will contact you as soon as possible. Click here to go to the online adoption form All Kalamazoo Animal Rescue dogs & puppies are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. Dogs have been heartworm tested and if appropriate (age and time of year) all dogs and puppies are given heartworm preventative. All are given medication to rid them of roundworms and checked and treated for fleas & ear mites, if needed. Dogs and puppies are given distemper vaccines and depending on how long the pet has been in foster care, additional distemper vaccine(s) may be necessary and the expense will be incurred by the adopter. Any canine over 4 months of age is brought current on the Rabies vaccine. Additional vet care may have been provided depending on the particular animal's needs. Dogs are individually priced as above. Please note that we do not ship dogs and we cannot guarantee that a long trip to see a foster dog will result in an adoption or taking the dog home on that day. It is in the best interest of pooch and owner to enroll in an obedience class soon after adoption. After all, you have a lot to learn about your new friend. The Kalamazoo Dog Training Club offers a discount to owners with newly adopted dogs. Enroll before any behavior problems start - you won't regret it!

Story
Meet Fiona, a 5 year old Lab/Pit mix. Fiona was adopted as a puppy and immediately got along with our family, which consists of two adults and two children, and at that time two other dogs. Fiona has always got along well and very lovingly with our family and extended family members. Fiona started displaying protective instincts as our children started having more friends over. Fiona will challenge others entering the home for the dominant position. We feel we are no longer able to keep Fiona due to the high energy and changing conditions in our home. We also have adopted several barn cats and have learned Fiona does not get along with cats. Fiona would do best in a low stimulation home with adults. Fiona is a very loving a caring dog. She loves snuggles, belly rubs, and kisses. She does not play with toys, but she loves to chew bones, do her puzzles, and use a lick mat.

Story
Bo is a 8-year-old blonde, 85 pound, Scorpio. He likes long walks but absolutely not on the beach as he hates swimming. He needs a little work on a leash, but he’s willing to learn. He’s neutered and comes with official papers. He is very affectionate and always expects you share the butt end of the bread with him. He loves other animals including cats, and prefers to be around other labs and kids.

Story
Are you a lonely introvert looking for a devoted, super smart, and completely goofy best friend? I just might be your guy! Here at MAS I am staying in the quieter building; when I go home I would like to keep my living situation more low-key as well. Because I am a nervous-nelly, my adopter needs be a confident and experienced leader willing to take it slow and really get to know me before I go home. It is much more comfortable for me to build up to a relationship with new people (I am kinda like an introvert myself); I like to take it easy and go for a couple walks before we label our relationship as friends. Once we are friends, I am known for my "Trevor hugs" with my favorite people and I am quite a cuddley boy (I love belly rubs)! Car rides are one of my favorite things, usually car rides mean fun adventures together! If there is potential for water activities, you may want to bring a towel - because you better believe I am going to be jumping in! Going for rural, more scenic walks is another big highlight in my days. Not to brag, but my leash manners are pretty good (except when there's something I have to mark as mine - then I will lead the way there). As far as the nitty-gritty details go, I would be happy to befriend your cat, but I am not very interested in hanging around other dogs or kids. I have some allergies and anxiety that I have long-term medications for, but the MAS staff will go over the details before I go home. DOB: 1/21/2015 For safety's sake, we are looking for homes with physical fenced in areas. Please fill out our online adoption survey at www.mackenzies.info/adopt/adoption-survey-application/
