    Zoe is a very lucky gal as she was rescued from our local animal control and came down with the parvo virus. She was hospitalized for 6 days and is now back to being a normal pup! Zoe is energetic, but happily settles at your feet after a walk or playtime. She is very affectionate and loves everyone she meets. Zoe is crate trained and sleeps through the night in her crate, loves toys and fetch, good on leash, treat/food motivated, and is a very fast learner. Zoe knows several commands and working on learning more! She likes other dogs, does good with children, and seems fine with cats. Zoe is heartworm negative, up to date on ... (Read More)vaccines, is spayed, and micro chipped. The perfect home for Zoe should be an active family who is willing to give Zoe DAILY exercise and a fenced yard is a must. Experience with the herding breed would be ideal along with children over 7 years old due to herding instincts and mouthing. Zoe is young at approximately 10 months to a year old and would also benefit from obedience training in a class setting as she still acts very puppy. No out of state adoptions! Michigan only! Zoe's adoption is $200. If you are interested in giving Zoe a forever home, please email us at or fill out our online adoption application at the following link: (Less)

    This gorgeous boy is Arnie, a 4 year old, 50lbs Aussie Shep Mix. His coloring is as unique as his loving personality! Poor Arnie wound up in a high kill shelter in Texas, very scared with a bad skin infection from untreated fleas.

He traveled here from Texas in the hopes of finding his forever home. He is great with kids, loves to play with other dogs, and doesn't mind cats. Arnie would do best with a physical fenced in yard as he loves to run laps and play. He also would do better with a female ... (Read More)canine companion. Arnie has a mellow side and is a big fan of snuggling in for a movie night on the couch. He is crate and house trained, 100% recovered from his skin infection and fully vetted. He is the perfect side kick. Applications are now being accepted for this sweet snuggle bum. Arnie is fostered near Marshall, MI (Less)
