Story
Rags is a very friendly and chill Rottie mix who was luckily rescued by his foster. He was found walking down a median on a busy road in Detroit. Rags currently lives with several other dogs and is very loving and sweet. It appeared he was not very well taken care of when found a couple months ago. He has an overbite which was probably congenital that causes his tongue to stick out. He has recently completed heartworm treatment. Rags is about 72 pounds and estimated to be about 8 years old. Rags has a good personality and would love to finally find a wonderful new family to love and care for him. This fellow definitely deserves it. Please consider making him a new addition to your home or companion for another friendly dog.

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.

Story
Trying to find our Dobe lovers ? This is Colt a 1 year old neutered Doberman. Tragically he’s lost his owner ? and Colt was alone with his owner in their apartment when he passed away. My heart hurts for Colt and for his owner & family. Colt is a pretty amazing guy. He loves other dogs, up to date with all health care (he’s an attendee at doggy daycare so he must be) And he enjoys the company of people. Sorry nothing available about him with cats or young kids. Older kids would probably be good. A fenced yard is a must! The family has Colt boarding for the next week in order to take care of his owners affairs. The beautiful boy has got to be lost. His life & world has been turned upside down. The family is searching for a reputable rescue to transfer Colt over to. BUT WE NEED AN APPROVED FOSTER. I’m asking friends and supporters to share Colt with us. And pray for his owner & Colt. Life’s circumstance can hit us all at any time. Our loved ones struggle to accept & grieve losing us as do our pets. Love to you Colt. We’re trying beautiful boy

Story
Citrus was living alone in an abandoned house with no doors or windows. We trapped her, and she got very upset. Citrus was growling for many many days, and did not allow any handling. She finally came around to trust us, and is now a loving sweetheart. Citrus wants an understanding foster-to-adopt home, who wants to baby her. She is estimated to be 2-4 years old, and a mix between English Bulldog and Boxer. Citrus has a classic cautious and disapproving yet personable English Bulldog personality, and the silly play style of a Boxer. We are looking for a household without children for Citrus. Leashed walks are fine, she does not require a fenced in yard. We cover all needed vet care. The adoption fee is $275. Please apply through our website: rebeldogsdetroit.com/applytoadopt

Story
On social media, a red Doberman was advertised as being given away or would be euthanized by her owner if someone didn't take her ASAP. The rescue tried to contact the owner, but someone picked her up before we could reach her. That same red Doberman was being given away on social media the very next day! Our volunteers sprang into action and brought her securely to us. Additionally, we were successful in removing a second dog that the same owner was also giving away or euthanizing (Hello Flower). Being fostered together, the two housemates are overjoyed to be reunited. Rolo, as she was being called, really fit her name because she is 40lbs overweight, she also has severe fur loss on her back as well as some scar evidence from old traumatic experiences. While the owner claimed she was only 2 years old, doing research with her microchip come to find out she is a senior! It goes without saying that we have changed Rolo’s name to Sage as she is starting a new life. Sage is a lovely girl who is full of love for everyone she encounters. Sage is following a stringent diet and workout regimen, be aware that losing excess weight will take some time. Hoping that with a good diet her fur will grow back soon.
