Beagle    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations 

    Copper is a happy go lucky 2 year old guy. Sweet and gentle with kids and adults. Loves to play with other dogs. He in not at all over-weight and in great muscle tone. Copper absolutely can not go to homes with cats. His Prey drive is HUGE and he will chase it if it runs. I have no idea how he would do with livestock. Most likely no poultry or small livestock. If you are a good trainer, he would make an excelent sent dog. Possibly search and rescue. Copper is sent oriented. Nose down and tail up! He transitioned great into his foster home. He is crated at night and when left alone in the house. He was taken in from a family who was ... (Read More)military and transfering out of the country. His foster family is older. He has more energy than they can keep up with. He needs a very secure yard. He will go over and under fences to chase prey (cats). That is his biggest fault. GOTTA GET THE KITTY! He will come with crate, bed, harness, leashes, and toys. I should have him wormed and vaccinated soon. (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: 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. If you would like to donate to this puppies care you can do so right on our website mitchellanimalrescue.org or thru our facebook page The Mitchell Animal Rescue or you can mail a donation too PO Box 355 Mitchell SD 57301 If interested, please fill out and submit an adoption application on our website, mitchellanimalrescue.org under the forms section.

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)

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.) Dogs can hear much lower frequencies than humans, over twice as high as humans, and about four times as far as humans.
