Story
After very much thought and consideration, Gladys (Gladdy) foster family has decided instead of keeping her it would be best for her to find a family of her own. One of the resident dogs in her current foster home has decided even though she loves Gladdy most of the time, there are certain situations that upset her which causes her to go after Gladdy and it's just not fair to her. Although her foster family's hearts are broken, they want to do what's best for her. Gladdy was found laying on the side of the road. She was scooped up by her rescuer after no one in the neighborhood recognized her. We are guessing Gladdy is American Pit Bull Terrier mixed with Basset Hound or possibly Corgi since she has such short stubby legs. She would likely be good with dog savvy cats. She is a total love bug and loves attention. She is still young and learning her manners, so kids over 5 would be best for her as she is still a little jumpy. She loves to go for walks and human interaction. Another younger playful dog would be best for her. She is pretty athletic as well. She is very treat motivated so that makes training her that much easier. She will need heavy duty chew toys as she is still in the "puppy" stage. She has a silly goofy personality that makes her foster family laugh. Her foster family will be looking for the perfect home for her that will love her just as much as they do. Email cron_19@yahoo.com if you would like to meet Gladdy...

Story
Hazel would love nothing more than life with an athletic family to take her on runs, hikes or to the lake. She is a young adult with a good natured personality, which is likely what helped her survive her previous owner. Hazel lived in a "pay by the week" motel room in Southgate for almost a year. Her owner eventually abandoned her in that room. She deserves a responsible person who will see having a companion like Hazel as the honor it is. Interested in meeting or adopting Hazel?

Story
Is this dog good with kids? It's crucial that children are taught to respect dogs and understand a dog's body language. Is this dog house trained? Expect to house train a newly adopted dog. Some dogs will pick it up faster than others. Successful house training largely depends on patience and consistent encouragement. Most of the dogs that end up in shelters are mixed breeds that can have 2 to 10 different breeds in their DNA. The breed listed is only the best guess of the shelter volunteers.

Story
Tank was rescued when his previous owner was unable to provide a safe life for him. That was a lucky break for Tank. The shelter had him heartworm tested while he was neutered and discovered he is suffering from heartworm disease due to being denied routine prevention. Tank will now require a several month long treatment once it's determined he is healthy enough to undergo the injections. Thankfully, Pound Pals Downriver has stepped up to help this young dog get his health back. He's an energetic and playful 3 year old pup who seems to do well with other dogs. Be sure to check out our Facebook page at Wyandotte Animal Shelter (https://www.facebook.com/wacshelter/) for day to day updates on our cats and dogs. :) Thank you for your interest in adopting!

All dogs are spayed/neutered, heartworm negative unless otherwise indicated. All are up to date on age appropriate vaccinations and current on heartworm prevention! Additional questions... Does this dog get along with cats? There is almost always an acclimation period when a new pet joins the household. We are happy to suggest a few ways to ease the transition. If one of our dogs is reported to have lived with cats previously, that will be indicated in the dog's description! Does this dog react well to other dogs? No dog loves every other dog, just as humans do not like every other human they meet. A proper introduction (meet and greet) would be required as part of our application process. Is this dog good with children? The better question is how the children have been taught to handle animals. A dog will respond negatively if he/she is not being handled properly. We can offer suggestions on how to teach children to interact with dogs and pay attention to body language. Young children should never be left unsupervised with new dogs. How did this dog end up in a shelter? The top reasons dogs are given up are: Moving without considering the needs of the pets Death of the owner with no plan in place for the pets Previous owner did not provide appropriate training Owner did not consider the lifespan of a dog Owner did not consider the cost of providing for a dog
