Rescue Me ID: 14-07-18-00379Sid (male)

Lab Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    7/16/14 Sid is doing great in his foster home! He loves to play with his foster sister (black Lab) and continues to appropriately investigate his dog savvy foster brother, a 5 yr old cat. If Sid gets a little too curious for the cat's liking, all he has to do is vocalize his concern and bat at him to make Sid stop. His foster sister taught him how to play tug-of-war, a game he now tries to get her to participate in often. Sid also knows how to fetch and drop it! His foster sister and foster mom have noticed Sid is very competitive when playing fetch, but his foster sister just chases after it with him and will let him retrieve the toy each ... (Read More)time as she understands it's just a game and not something to fight over. Sid's foster mom realized he may have the potential of being a dock diver, and now that he's completely healed from his neuter surgery, she is anxiously awaiting a time to take him to a lake to test her theory! Stay tuned for more on that! Sid is an INSIDE dog only as he needs to be around his humans to stay happy and healthy. He would not be a good hunter as he is scared of firecrackers; therefore, he would most likely be gun shy as well. Sid thoroughly enjoys attention from all humans and greets all dogs happily. His foster mom says he is a joy to have in her home. 7/3/14 Sid is such a smart dog! He already knows his new name and, just as quickly, has learned to Sit and Wait until he is told Go to eat his food. He also knows Shake and Lay Down. Sid is completely in tuned with his foster mom. He follows her wherever she goes in her home and repeatedly touches her with his nose. Outside on the leash, he constantly looks at her and again repeatedly touches her with his nose. He almost seems to ask permission to leave her side to go to the bathroom. He walks behind or to the side of his foster mom; very rarely does he walk in front. He does dance around a bit, but since he's obviously so trainable, he would easily learn to stay to one side all the time. Sid has started to take notice of all the bunnies and squirrels when we're sitting on our 2nd story deck and, based on some of his mannerisms, he may have been trained to hunt. However, he was most likely scared to death of gun shots. He shakes when he hears firecrackers and snuggles up to his foster mom when he hears them. He will most likely have the same reaction to thunder storms. For some reason he is also scared of trash bags and will leave the room, cowering, when he sees one come out. Positive reinforcement will help curb his reaction. Every once in a while he tries to play with his feline foster brother, but, luckily for Sid, the cat takes it all in stride and only bats at him when he gets to be too much and hasn't felt the need to use his claws. Sid corrects easily, but if his forever home has a cat, it would need to be one that is very comfortable with dogs. Sid is seriously just a wiggle worm of happiness! His personality is friendly, silly, and almost puppy like. He instantly bonded with his foster sister, a 6 yr old black Lab. They love to play with each other and all the dog toys. He loves all adults and will make an excellent companion. If there are children in the home they need to be older as younger kids make him a bit nervous. Sid needs a forever home with a fenced in back yard and is an inside dog only. If you are interested in meeting Sid, please complete the adoption application on our website: http://mitchellanimalrescue.rescuegroups.org/forms 6/28/14 Here are a few more things we have learned about Sid just in the last few days: Corrects very easily, great recall, knows Sit, Shake, Lay down, and is learnng Wait and Go for feeding time. Stays behind me most of the time by choice when walking on leash, does not pull. Loves every single person he meets - kids and adults. Likes to stay by his foster mom inside and touches her with his nose a lot; when outside walking he does the same and also looks at her frequently. He is a very good natured, happy, even tempered young man! 6/26/14 Welcome to Mitchell Animal Rescue family, Sid! Sid was taken to a county pound after wandering around a small town in SD for a month. He is now in foster care and will be neutered today. He is up to date on rabies, distemper, and bordetella, has started a flea/tick preventative, and is appx 3 yrs old. Sid is a wiggle worm of happiness and has a great demeanor. He will start training to curtail a few minor misunderstanding about living inside, but already knows Sit and Shake. He's a bit of a velcro dog but also loves to play with his new temporary canine sibling, his foster mom's black Lab! He has had a very acceptable reaction to his foster mom's cat as well. To adopt, fill out and submit an adoption application at mitchellanimalrescue.org. Sid's adoption fee is $125.00 (Less)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Update on Maggi - 7-15-14 Maggie had puppies but is now spayed and ready for her new home. she is probably around 3 yrs old. she is very energetic. she likes to be boss dog. she will need someone who is willing to exercise. She can jump pretty good so a taller fence would be best. She would do good with older kids but might be a little too energetic for real small kids. She's mostly house trained, has had a couple accidents in the house but keeps her kennel clean. she also likes to chase the cats so a house with no cats would be best. She does get along with most dogs she meets but she will try to bully some dogs so doggie introductions is ... (Read More)a must is you have a dog. If interested in giving Maggie a home please fill out an adoption application at www.mitchellanimalrescue.org Her adoption fee is $200.00 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-18-00351Rebel (male)

Chihuahua    Age: Puppy

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

    7-6-14 Rebel is a typical young male chihuahua he thinks he's a big dog for sure. He is very friendly with other dogs and hasn't had any issues with the other dogs in his foster home. However when it comes to people (like lots of small dogs) he is nervous and needs you to sit back and let him come to you. You don't want to try to force him out of his kennel because this makes him very insecure but if you open the door to the kennel and sit on the floor he'll come right to you. Once he knows he can trust you he loves to sit in your lap. He does pick his favorite person in the house and will be by them the whole time if they are home. If they ... (Read More)are gone he'll pick someone else as a temporary new favorite. Rebel doesn't like fast movements so a house with children is a no no. He seems to be house trained, we had a little bit of a marking issue when he first came into foster care but is doing much better now. He also recently got neutered so I think his marking will be a thing of the past soon. Rebel would like a quiet home where he can curl up on his owners lap and just relax all day. Once you are his best friend he will follow you everywhere and I mean everywhere. If you leave the room he goes with you (he'll even jump baby gates to go with you, he acts like he has springs in his feet. He's a great jumper) He doesn't love to be kenneled and will bark when first put in the kennel but settles down after a bit. I think once we are 100% sure his marking is done he would do great sleeping in bed because he loves to cuddle up to his best friend. Rebel is great about coming back to you when called also. We haven't tried him on a leash yet. He was very scared when he first came into foster care so we want to make sure we take things slow with him. So if you understand the attitude and character of a chihuahua you will understand Rebel. If you are interested in giving Rebel a home please fill out an adoption application at www.mitchellanimalrescue.org Rebels adoption fee is $150.00 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-16-00761Beast (male)

Australian Shepherd    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I am in need of some help & it is actually for my brother. I live in MI & I told him I would search online to see if there are some options for his dog, Beast. Beast is an English Shepherd & I believe he is about 3 1/2 -4 yrs old. My brother works on the road (construction) & is gone 2-3 months at a time. He has a home in Watertown, but there was a tragedy in their family last October. My sister-in-law (who had just turned 50 yrs old) last July was diagnosed with colon cancer. Her prognosis was not good at all & my brother & her went to various hospitals including the Mayo clinic & Tulsa Cancer Treatment Center & that is where she ... (Read More)passed away in October. Susan was Beast's primary caregiver & friend. Luckily, the company my brother works for was able to offer my brother a position where he could work at home on the computer & fly to the main office periodically as their son just graduated from High School this year & he was able to be there with him during this difficult year they had endured. My brother had to go back to work the end of June & his son, will be going off to college. My brother cares for the dog a lot & I really wish I could help him, but we have a dog of our own & it's a commitment as you know. Does your rescue group place dogs in good homes? Beast is used to being in the house & also needs room to roam a little. He is a good dog & I would just love to have placed in a home that would take good care of him. My brother would like to visit him if it would be at all possible or would even consider taking him back if his job allowed it. He lives in a 5th wheel trailer & can be gone 10-12 hr days, so it makes things difficult for him to take care of Beast & he may not know where he will have to move when his job is complete; it's not a fun life, but it pays the bills. If you have any suggestions or would be able to help, it would be very much appreciated. Plans need to be made soon as my nephew will be leaving for college mid-August. (Less)

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected,
 Incontinent 

    [Read About Natural Incontinence Care] Callie is a very sweet dog, but she is jealous of other dogs in the house (she is fine at the dog park) and I can't keep her due to fights with my other dog. She does require medicine for bladder control, but it works well and only costs about $15 a month. She is afraid of men, but isn't aggressive toward them.

Beagle Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Penny is a wonderful dog who enjoys going for walks, being outside, playing fetch, and snuggling. She eats twice a day and requires minimal 'upkeep.' She has had very little interaction with other dogs and kids, and is thus very timid and territorial. I have twins who are beginning to walk, and as much as it pains me, I feel she would be better in a new LOVING home.

Boxer Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Georgia is fun loving and energetic. Loves to go for walks. She is a possible flight risk so it is best to keep her on a leash. We will provide long tie outs, leash, harness, food, food dishes, and toys. The only reason we are parting with her is our new apartment will not allow us to keep her.

Rescue Me ID: 14-06-11-00488Nelson (male)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    ADOPTION PENDING Nelson is new to the rescue. He was found as a stray and his owner never came for him. We aren't 100% sure of his breed but he is a terrier of some sort. He is taller and longer bodied than a jack russell but he has the appearance of a jack russell terrier. he was mistreated terribly by someone because there is a bb in his front leg. We haven't found others yet but their could be more. He is going to the vet soon for his check up and to get neutered. And to see if there is anything we need to do about the bb in his leg. For as mean as some people have been to this little boy you wouldn't know it because he is very friendly ... (Read More)and loving. He seems to be ok with the other dogs in his foster home although he's only met a couple so far. We aren't sure if he's house trained yet. He wasn't neutered when we got him so he does like to mark things but getting him neutered should help with that problem. He likes treats and knows sit. He loves the people that found him and he loves his foster family including the 13 yr old in the house. We are still learning about him so we will update as we learn more about him. If you are interested in this cute little man please fill out an application at www.mitchellanimalrescue.org Nelson's adoption fee is $150.00 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-06-11-00483Douglas (male)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Senior

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Douglas is an 11 yr old Yorkie that was an owner surrender. He is a lovable little dog. He is 11 years old but you wouldn't know it. He is active for an 11 year old dog. His teeth look great. He just has so much live in him for his age. He's neutered and up to date on shots. He's fully house trained. He is on the bigger size of a yorkie so he may be a mix breed. He does have some anxiety issues. He don'ts like to be kenneled and will bark while in the kennel. Outside of the kennel he is very well behaved and quiet. So he's very vocal in his kennel but quiet outside of it. At night he sleeps in his foster moms room and he will lay on the bed ... (Read More)for a little while and then he moves to sleep under the bed. He gets nervous with fast movement or loud noises. He is a pacer when he's nervous too. Once he decides the room is safe he settles down and will lay on the back of the couch. He loves to sit next to you on the couch. He will play with some of the other small dogs in the foster home. He doesn't care much for the 13 yr old kiddo in the home though so he's going to have to go to a home with much older kids or no kids at all. He doesn't like to be grabbed quickly and snuck up on. He will nip to defend himself if he feels threatened. He needs quiet home where her can unwind and be himself. He is having some sneezing issues right now so we are working on figuring that out. He has improved a lot since he's been in foster care. He was sneezing so hard when we first took him in he would bash his head on the ground and he got a sore above his one eye. But the sore is healing and he hasn't had a horrible sneezing attack lately, just small sneezes every now and then so I think he was allergic to the food they were feeding him at the rescue we got him from so a grain free feed is probably going to be a must for Douglas. If you would like to give this sweet dog a great home please fill out an application at www.mitchellanimalresuce.org His adoption fee is $125.00 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-06-11-00473Blue (male)

Dachshund    Age: Puppy

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

    Blue was a home surrender because he would nip at the kids in the home. Since he's been in foster care he hasn't nipped at the people but he will nip at other dogs if they get in his space. If he is under the blankets he will get scared when a dog jumps on him or walks by him and he will nip at them. He doesn't like big dogs much and will bark and nip at them trying to be the bigger tougher dog. He does get along with some of the dogs in foster care and if he sleeps with the same dog night after night in bed he won't nip at them from under the blanket. He needs to get comfortable with the dogs he's around and he's the same way with people. ... (Read More)With new people he's a little cautious at first. If you move to fast on him he will get scared and try to nip. I think this is why he nipped at the kids in his former home. Since he's been in foster care he hasn't bit anyone. so if you learn to respect Blue and his space he will be a great dog for you. He just wants a quiet home where he can relax. He doesn't want kids chasing him around or a lot of dogs around. So older kids that know how to treat a dog would be ok. A home with other small dogs I think would be ok too. Blue loves to be pet and cuddled. He loves to sleep next to you in bed under the covers. He wants to be with his people all day long and loves car rides. He is kennel trained although he doesn't love to be in it. He wants to be with his people all the time. He loves food and treats. Loves belly rubs. He's house trained but he does mark his territory if he smells another dog close by. Blue has blue and brown eyes and gives him a unique look. He really is a lover waiting for that perfect family that understands him and gives him time to adjust to his new place. So if you have a quiet home and you think Blue would be a good fit please fill out an application on our website www.mitchellanimalrescue.org His adoption fee is $200.00 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-06-11-00091Ace (male)

Weimaraner    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Cats, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Ace is an indoor outdoor beloved part of the family. He suffered a sprained tendon two weeks ago. One week ago he bit a cyclist when he escaped the backyard. He has never aggressively bitten a human before. He does get excited around children if they are running and shouting and will nip or jump. We do not want to part with him but feel compelled to do so. Others have suggested we have him euthanized which we feel is not necessary. Please assist in finding a loving, attentive home for our boy.

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!
