We found him at the River Rouge Shelter waiting for his second chance. Approximate age / Weight: 3 years old and 85 lbs. Personality: Cobi is just a big lug who wants to be near his humans.

Story
HELLO! My name is Butters though my foster mom loves to call me Butt Butt. Do you want to play fetch? I love to show off by running around outside, chasing toys but then come inside for cuddle time and watch TV. Do you like paw patrol? I do! My foster mom taught me how to sit, shake, come when called, learning the Find-it game, and we are working to redirect my enthusiasm when greeting new people or trying to get their attention I LOVE meeting new people! I’m affectionate from the get-go. I’m so smart, too! Treat motivated, and I take those treats gently, curious, and want to learn new things. I’m good at the vet’s office, being handled, and on car rides. Though I should be safely secured so I don’t try to take the wheel. While I live in a foster home with two other dogs, I would prefer to have humans all to myself. A lot of dogs don't like my enthusiasm. Forever Home: I’m a wee pocket pitty just lookin’ for a person/couple that wants a bestie to have fun and cuddles with. I’d like to be able to sleep in bed with you as I love curling right up against my people to sleep. I’m moving into my teenage phase so I do need guidance and additional training to help me become the amazing companion I’m meant to be. I’ve got so much love to give to humans who adopt me.

Story
Good With Kids: Did well with kids he's met. Suggest older kids. Good With Other Dogs: Yes, not a big fan of high energy dogs Good With Cats: Unknown. Uninterested in squirrels so might like cats. Housetrained: Yes Crate Trained: Yes Walks Nicely On A Leash: Yes when wearing harness. Knows Basic Commands: Mostly Energy Level (Couch Potato, Moderate or High): Moderate Special Needs: Ear cleansing to avoid infections. Current getting every other week nail trims to shorten the quicks to obtain better standard nail length. Physical Fence: Ideal but would likely do well on tie-out or walks. Favorite Activity: Nap on the couch with favorite blanket and neck rubs. Arrival story: Junior was found on the streets of Detroit by a good Samaritan who provided a safe place and vet care prior to arriving at Waggin' Tails. Approximate age / Weight: 8ish yrs old and 55 lbs. Personality: Junior is super sweet, loving and is just happy to be by your side. He loves destroying stuffed toys, chewing on Benebones, and noshin' on stuffed Kongs or lick mats. Our boy is super super food motivated and his tail rarely stops wagging. He enjoys a romp in the yard, a walk around the block, a car ride, and most of all a nap on the couch with his favorite blanket. He’ll curl up next to you and loves tushy and neck rubs best. Junior is house trained and crate trained, is content being on his own for periods of time, is a champ at the vet, and is getting better at his routine ear washes and nail trims – he never hated them, just doesn’t want to sit still for them. Nicknames: Junie, June Bug, Uncle June, the list could go on. You call, he comes. Smart boy is learning the basic queues (like sit) and has excellent recall, doing well keeping eyes on his handler in one-on-one training class, not barking at other dogs on leash. Junior takes treats quickly so little kids may not be best match to live day-to-day but he's met younger kids and been great with them. Forever Home: Junior is filled with tons of love to give his next family and will quickly become your best bud! While pretty low maintenance and not really up for big adventures he sure does enjoy a car ride and walks and would love nothing more than to be your partner in crime!

Hello, my name is Angel and I came into the shelter as a stray. I`m about 4 years old and weigh about 48lbs. I`m a very adorable pit that loves to give hugs and kisses!! I also love to cuddle with people. I love to go for walks and play outside. I get along with other dogs and love to play with toys. I would be good to go into a home with a nice family. A big fence in yard would be awesome! I do love to be around humans a lot and love to follow them around everywhere. A big loving family would be ideal. I would also love to curl up on a nice cozy bed and sleep after hard days work of play. Taking family trips is one of my biggest dreams!!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.

Hello, my friends!! My name is Carmen and I`m a beautiful blue and white pitbull mix girl. I am the most gentle girl and I love all my human friends here at the shelter, as well as all of my fur friends I get to play with.I take treats extremely gently and I am very good at listening and politely sitting. I do pretty well with walking on leash, although I can definitely benefit from some basic obedience and leash training, as it would also be good for me to be in a class for socialization.I love both boy and girl pets so if you want to add me to your family, us pet friends will just have to meet first.I`m looking for a loving family who can give me the attention and care I deserve. While I`m great with people of all ages, I think I`d thrive best in a home with older kids who can understand and respect my boundaries. If you`re looking for a loyal companion to join your family adventures, then look no further—I`m your girl!If you`re ready to welcome a sweet and social companion like me into your home, please visit Macomb County Animal Control to meet me in person. I can`t wait to find my forever family and shower them with all the love and affection I have to offer!I will be out of the shelter from 2-20-24 until 2-26-24.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.

Story
Hi! My name is Smith and I`m a 1 and a 1/2 year old pitbull.I`m a friendly, active dog who likes people and playing with other dogs. I get along best with female dogs and need slow introductions with male dogs. Sometimes it takes me a minute to warm up. I`m not sure how I am with cats so you`ll have to monitor me in the home.I`ve been told I have very pretty eyes and I like to sniff a lot! I really enjoy going on long walks where I can sniff to my hearts content. Although, I do need some help learning my leash manners. I`m still working on that but I`m eager to learn!I am up to date on vaccinations but will need a regular veterinarian to make sure I stay happy and healthy.If you`re looking for a happy, playful dog then I`m your guy! Come down and meet me!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 and Saturday 10am-3pm. To help speed up the application process, it is recommended that you complete the online application form found at the link below.https://www.macombgov.org/departments/animal-control/adoptions,My adoption fee is $50.00
