Rescue Me ID: 14-04-13-00431Auggie (female)

Bichon Frise Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    ADOPTION PENDING 4/16/14 3-29-14 Meet Auggie. He is about 12 weeks old. We aren't sure what his breed is but we are guessing westie/bichon mix or possibly westie/shihtzu mix. He came in with his two sisters, the girls got the wire hair and Auggie got the soft fluffy hair. But whatever his mix is he is an adorable sweet little boy. He loves to be held for as long as you will hold him. He likes to be in your arms and just watch his sisters and the other dogs in his foster home play. He will get down and join in the playing too. He has fun chasing his sisters around. He is doing good on potty training. He will give signs like sniffing and ... (Read More)running in circles so you know its time for him to go out. He will also bark a lot if he's in his crate and has to go potty so you know its time. He's not huge on barking any other time but does let out a few barks while playing. Auggie's hair is so soft and getting long so he will need regular grooming as he gets older. He did great with his bath. He didn't like his nails trimmed very much but I think he'll learn to tolerate it. He is already neutered and up to date on shots. He would love a home with someone to play with like another dog or a child, as long as the child understands and learns that they need to be gentle with such a small dog so no one gets hurt. If you are interested in Auggie you can go to www.mitchellanimalrescue.org to fill out an adoption application. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-04-13-00429Skyler (female)

Bichon Frise Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    ADOPTION PENDING 4/17/14 3-29-14 Meet Skyler she is a mixed breed puppy, just around 12 weeks old. We aren't sure what she's mixed with, possibly westie/bichon or maybe westie/shihtzu. But whatever her mix she is an adorable little puppy. She will stay small. Her and her sister Sophie look just alike with the wire hair but her brother Auggie got the soft curly longer hair. She is very sweet and loves to cuddle in your arms for a little while and then will get down and run around and play. She is vocal while in her kennel (she's just getting use to it) but when she's out playing she barks playfully with the other dogs just a little bit. She ... (Read More)has started on potty training and is doing pretty good. She has had a couple pee accidents in her crate but no poop. If you can take her out every couple hours and about 15 min after she eats she should potty train quickly and easily. If she is in her kennel and really starts barking you know she needs to go out. In the house when she's running around if she starts running in circles and sniffing the ground you know its time to take her out. So she will give you the signs that she needs to go out if you pay attention to them. She has done great with all the other dogs in her foster home. She just wants to play with everyone. If one of the other dogs barks at her to tell her to stop playing with them she will walk away from that dog and find another one to play with. Skyler has soft but wiry hair, we aren't sure how long it will get so some grooming as she gets older may be required. She didn't mind her bath at all and did just fine with clipping her nails. Skyler is already spayed and up to date on shots. She is ready for her new home. She would love a home with someone to play with, kids or other dogs. If your children are very small you will need to watch that the child is gentle with the puppy so no one gets hurt. If you are interested in adopting Skyler please go to www.mitchellanimalrescue.org to fill out an adoption application. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-04-13-00422Sophie (female)

Bichon Frise Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    ADOPTION PENDING 4/17/14 3-29-14 Meet Sophie she is a mixed breed puppy, just around 12 weeks old. We aren't sure what she's mixed with, possibly westie/bichon or maybe westie/shihtzu. But whatever her mix she is an adorable little puppy. She will stay small. Sophie looks just like her sister Skyler, they both have wire hair and their brother Auggie got the soft curly longer hair. She is very sweet and loves to cuddle in your arms for a little while and then will get down and run around and play. She is vocal while in her kennel (she's just getting use to it) but when she's out playing she barks playfully with the other dogs just a little ... (Read More)bit. Sophie likes to be close to her people all the time. She will follow you anywhere. She has started on potty training and is doing pretty good. She has had a couple pee accidents in her crate but no poop. If you can take her out every couple hours and about 15 min after she eats she should potty train quickly and easily. If she is in her kennel and really starts barking you know she needs to go out. In the house when she's running around if she starts running in circles and sniffing the ground you know its time to take her out. So she will give you the signs that she needs to go out if you pay attention to them. She learned very quickly where to outside door is and will follow you right to the door to go out and go potty. She has done great with all the other dogs in her foster home. She just wants to play with everyone. If one of the other dogs barks at her to tell her to stop playing with them she will walk away from that dog and find another one to play with. Sophie is a jumper, she will get on the end table that is near the baby gate and jump over the baby gate. She also likes to jump from the back of the couch to the floor. So as she gets bigger the more she'll be able to jump. I think she'd be an easy one to train to do agility tricks. Sophie has soft but wiry hair, we aren't sure how long it will get so some grooming as she gets older may be required. She didn't mind her bath at all and did just fine with clipping her nails. Sophie is already spayed and up to date on shots. She is ready for her new home. She would love a home with someone to play with, kids or other dogs. If your children are very small you will need to watch that the child is gentle with the puppy so no one gets hurt.

Rescue Me ID: 14-04-05-00231Willy (male)

Lhasa Apso Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    3-21-14 Willy came into the care of MAR. His adoption fee is $125.00 He is about 9 yrs old. He is neutered already and up to date on shots. He does have a little cherry eye that is getting fixed very soon. He does seem to have some vision issues with that eye. He has the start of a little arthritis in his back. He feels so much better now that he got his hair cut. He was running around happy after he was done with his haircut. He likes to be outside and inside. He likes it quiet so a quieter home would probably be better. He's doing ok with all the dogs in his foster home but you can tell he'd like it a little quieter. He will need regular ... (Read More)grooming. He loves to sleep in bed with his people. He will bark at you to let you know he has to go outside (even in the middle of the night, its a rude awakening but at least he tells you, lol) He loves to lay around and he loves treats. He does seem to like older kids but he is getting older so young kids might now be a great idea. He should be introduced to your current dogs as he doesn't tolerate a couple of the dogs in his foster home, he doesn't do anything serious but has a good snarl. If you can give Willy a good home to retire in please fill out an application at www.mitchellanimalrescue.org (Less)

Shiba Inu    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Sasha is a very good dog and deserves a family that can devote more time to her than I am currently able to. She is a typical Shiba Inu and needs to be kept on a leash or in a fence. She loves her people and to be pet and played with. I've gotten some refusal from groomers but she loves when I groom her myself. She is great with kids, cats, male dogs and female adults - although she is afraid of men sometimes she can usually warm up and love them too (she got used to my husband and now he's her favorite). She has never shown any aggression towards children and lets them play with her, poke at her, etc - if she gets annoyed with it she just ... (Read More)walks away. I am not interested in putting her in a shelter, but please contact me if you are willing to discuss adopting her into a loving home. (Less)

    Moose is a half rottweiler half golden retriever. He is about 5 or 6 years old and I adopted him from the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society when he was 9 months old and I have loved him ever since. He is a good boy and is kennel trained. when he is out of the kennel when I am home from work he barks when he has to go outside (comes in handy). He loves to go for walks and running with me in the summer. And he loves it when he gets to Run at the stable I go to. I hate to give him up but I don't have the time that he needs and deserves, as I work too much now. He needs a good loving home that he can have time to run and play and be a dog outside ...

Rescue Me ID: 13-11-16-00281Greyson (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    UPDATE ON GREYSON-11-16-13- Greyson is now Available for adoption. She has hip surgery and is doing well with recovery. She will need some follow up visits to make sure everything is healing good. She is still learning to use the leg she had surgery on. She is still very active. she is a jumper and will need a patient owner to teach all she needs to know. Greyson is now spayed and looking for a loving home where she can cuddle with you on the couch and maybe sleep in bed with you. She is still learning potty training but doing pretty well. The cold weather seems to have set her back a little. She doesn't like the cold at all. So all the ... (Read More)time house dog is a MUST. She will have accidents in her crate at night but as she gets older she should be able to keep it clean all night. She loves to play with some dogs and then sometimes hates to be around other dogs. So a home with NO other dogs would be best. She will try to protect the food you are eating from other animals too so we feel her being the ONLY dog in the home would be best. If you do have another dog and think it might work out a few meetings would be required to make sure they are compatible. As far as her reaction to people, she is very friendly to people she's met and she loves to sit by them on the couch and sleep with them in bed. She wants to be with you all the time. She will follow you everywhere. She love the 12 yr old in her foster home too. With Greyson's hip surgery please know that she will most likely heal and not have any other issues with her hip in the future. But please be aware that she COULD have continued problems with her hip and may need some extra vet visits in the future. Please make sure you are willing to take on this responsibility before considering this dog for adoption. She needs someone that can make sure all her needs are met and that she can be a happy well rounded pup with lots of love. Sept 2013-- Greyson is a young female pit puppy that was found wandering around in a small town. No one claimed her and she was starving when we took her in. She is in foster care, gets along with some dogs thats she's met. She would probably do best as the only dog because she does have some food aggression issues. She protects her food and kennel from other dogs. She has NEVER been aggressive towards a human who tries to take her food. She will be going for a vet check and will be spayed if she's old enough. She also has a hurt hip right now that we need to X-ray to see what the problem is. She is not housetrained yet, but she's smart, she'll catch on soon. She loves to play with toys. She wants to run but her hip limits her right now. She likes to cuddle with you on the couch or in bed. She sleeps great in bed at night. She's like a heated blanket. She also does well in her kennel at night. Greyson does protect her food from other dogs so we are working on correcting that. Greyson does know sit and she will sit and wait for a treat. She can sit and wait for along time. Greyson will need to be an indoor dog. She doesn't tolerate the heat well so I would assume she won't do well in really cold weather either. She needs a cozy dog bed to curl up in!! She is up to date on all her shots and is frontlined. She is on MEDICAL HOLD until we figure out what we need to do with her hips.

Rescue Me ID: 13-10-24-00492Hailey and Lola (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hailey and Lola are bonded and must stay together. Hailey is Lola's mom. 10-19-13 Hailey is gray and black- she is 4 years old. She is now spayed and all up to date on shots. Lola is all tan. she is 3 years old. She is now spayed and all up to date on shots. They are both house trained and crate trained. They will sleep in their crate quietly but love to sleep in bed with the person they trust most. Hailey and Lola are going to need a VERY calm, patient person who will give them as much time as they need to adjust to their new surroundings. They do NOT trust easily. They are very frightened of new people. In fact in their foster ... (Read More)home it took them over a week to trust the foster mom enough for her to catch them. They have been in foster now for a month and they will only let the foster mom pick them up and they will cuddle with her in bed or on the couch but as soon as the foster dad shows up they either hide or cuddle in really close to the foster mom. They don't do well with children just for the fact that they are very nervous and scared and fast sudden movements could cause them to bite. this is why an EXPERIENCED OWNER, A PATIENT OWNER IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST FOR THESE TWO. They are very loving once they find that person they can trust. They love to kiss their foster mom all over her face. They love to sit with her all the time. They love to cuddle up tight against her at night in bed. Lola likes to cuddle under the blankets and Hailey likes to sleep on the pillow up by her foster moms head. When they get really comfortable (when its just them and foster mom in the house) they get playful and jump around and act silly. They bounce from cushion to cushion chasing after their foster mom. They are quiet funny and cute when they are at their most comfortable. I wish they would learn to trust all the people in their foster home because they are loved there by all the humans. They do just bond to one person and just don't seem to care for anyone else after that. They would make the ideal pets for a single women that has all the time in the world for them and the patience to let them go at their own pace to develop trust in the people. When they first go to a new home they will need to stay in a crate and have a contained area so they will not run away from the new people and get lost. They are hard to handle the first week for sure. It will take time to gain their trust. They will put on quite a show for awhile trying to scare you away. So again a patient owner is a must. Are you the right person to help this mother and daughter find their forever home? If you think you are please go to www.mitchellanimalrescue.org to fill out an adoption application (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 13-08-20-00255Opel (female)

Chihuahua Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    UPDATE: ADOPTION PENDING 2/14/14 Opel is a female chihuahua mix. She is very nervous meeting new people and can not be approached too quickly or she will try to protect herself. She tends to like females more than males. Although she is slowly (very slowly) warming up to my husband. Some days he can pick her up, some days Opel says no way, leave me alone! She will need a quiet ADULT ONLY home as she will nip at anyone who will not respect her space. She doesn't like loud noises or fast movements. A child free home would be best for this little girl. She is fully house trained and is spayed. She does ok in her kennel but if you are home ... (Read More)she wants to be out with you so she will whine and bark a little to let you know she wants out. She likes to sleep above your head on your pillow at night. Sometimes she will cuddle up next to your side but she prefers to be as close to your head as possible. While sitting on the couch she will cuddle up right next to you. If you don't hold her she will snuggle up to your arm like she's trying to climb you. Opel has longer legs and almost looks like a tiny deer. She is adorable and will love you if you give her the chance to warm up to you. It will take some time for her to decide if she likes you or not. It only took her about a day to trust me but its taken my husband much longer. When we have company she will bark at them and want them to stay away so she does not trust easily. You will have to be very patient with little Miss Opel. But if you can give her this chance she will reward you with her love and cuddles. she's not much of a face kisser but she loves to lick hands. She seems to just ignore other dogs so if you have another calm dog that will give her, her space then it should be fine, but dog introductions are always a good idea. She is also growly when it comes to her food. She doesn't like other dogs that want to check out her food. I've also found that she doesn't like to eat hard food without some soft food mixed in. If you think you are the right home for Opel please go to mitchellanimalrescue.org to fill out an adoption application. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 13-07-19-00278Max (male)

Brussels Griffon Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Adult Women Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    UPDATE: Max is fine with other dogs and men with proper introduction. He bonds quickly but needs slow introduction to new people, dogs, and new situations. Max is a 4 yr old Male Brussels Griffon/Chihuahua Mix. He was surrendered because he didn't get along with the older dogs in the house. He prefers women, isn't wild about men. He is neutered and utd on shots. Would do best as an only dog.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in South Dakota
    Dogs can make good pets in South Dakota if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Low-Cost South Dakota Spay & Neuter Clinics
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. There are hundreds of dog breeds with extremely varied characteristics and sizes, from the tiniest teacup Chihuahua to the hugest Mastiff, but all of these breeds make up just one species Canis lupus familiaris and can theoretically breed with one another (although there can be practical and health related constraints.) The dog was the earliest domesticated animal.
