We have dogs that are not posted yet. They are not available until their vetting is complete. You may have seen a dog posted on our Facebook page or have heard of one through word of mouth. You are welcome to fill out an application for a dog you have knowledge of but is not posted on this website. All applications must have a specific dog in mind for us to begin the adoption process. I'm sorry we are not staffed to process applications for general future reference. We also depend on you to let us know if you are interested in a dog you see. We are not set up to recall individuals with requests for a dog based on descriptions of what they are looking for. Please visit our Facebook page to see the dogs as they come in. https://www.facebook.com/TheMisfitsDogRescue/
Maggie is a 15 year old, 11 pound Shih Tzu. She was originally rescued from a puppy mill. Her new Mom had her for several years and recently passed away. Maggie is completely deaf and has mild glaucoma. She is on eye drops. She is still pretty active for an old gal. She likes to spend time exploring in the yard. She is looking for a calm household with someone at home a lot to give her plenty of love. She is potty trained but needs to go out frequently. Her adoption fee is $150. She is spayed, UTD and chipped.
Chico is available for adoption. He is a 9 year old, 12 pound Chihuahua mix. We were told Chico was used as a bait dog. He sustained a back injury leaving him partially incontinent and he walks a little funny. He can sometimes do stairs but we don’t let him. He where’s a belly band when inside. He also has a deformed ear. Also from injury. He is a very sweet lap dog who just needs someone to love him. His adoption fee is $150. He is neutered UTD, microchipped, and he has recently had a dental.
Honeybun is 8 years old . She is a Dachshund/ Chihuahua mix and weighs 15 pounds. She is very sweet and loving. She is potty trained. Her favorite places are in a lap and roaming around and playing in the backyard. She has a very loving and sweet demeanor. She will likely take some time to enjoy a canine playmate if she goes to a home with one. She has quite a bit of energy for her age! She loves playing with stuffies but doesn’t always fetch when you throw it. She may have some depth perception or developmental issues because she will randomly bob and weave and jumps a little too high when going for a toy or jumping up on the couch. That being said she is quite fearless. She is not afraid of much now that she’s had the time to feel safe and learn what being a dog means! She does not like being kenneled and does not get into anything or chew when she’s left alone. She would thrive best in a home where someone is around more often than not. She gets very bonded to her person and loves to cuddle. Her adoption fee is $150.
Jordy is 12 years old. He was rescued from a horribly neglectful situation. His owners dumped him at a shelter. (Thank God!) They said he had arthritis in his foot. The truth is, the foot was badly broken and they never did anything about it. It healed on its own and now the joint is permanently fused. When he was turned in Jordy also had hardly any hair. He looked like he had mange, but it was a yeast band bacterial skin infection. He must have suffered years, not months with that. His hair is growing back slowly with diet and medicated baths. The doctor is not sure it will all come back because his condition was left untreated for so long. Because of his age, we aren’t considering surgery for his foot. He uses it sometimes and carries it other times. Jordy is becoming playful as he feels better. He gets very attached to his person. He gets along with other dogs, but sees them more as a competition for for Moms attention. He loves to go for car rides, even if it’s just a quick trip to the store. He just wants to be with you. He weighs 20 pounds. He is UTD, neutered and microchipped. His teeth were recently cleaned and look great! His adoption fee is $150. We are looking for someone home a lot because he deserves a lot of attention. Jordy is totally potty trained.
To prospective adopters;
It is true rescuers are more particular of who they adopt dogs too. We see all the horrible treatment of animals every day. We literally rescue dogs from the poor or abusive treatment of humans. In my personal opinion, society has evolved to where owning a dog is a right and privilege. Most people consider only what they want and not what is right for the dog. That is why once a dog is in our hands and consequently in our hearts, we make sure that anyone who adopts an animal from us has a good life to offer the dog. It is not an easy task. Everyone wants a dog. We try to screen people first before getting too involved with helping them find a dog, or we would be simply selling dogs. We are also a strictly a volunteer organization. Most of us work at least part time jobs. Our time to the rescue is valuable and limited. We believe that anyone who is sincerely a wonderful potential adopter, will endure the process.
