But if you think YOU’RE excited for March Madness, think again. These dogs’ excitement goes to 15.

Lady dog is up for adoption!

Are you looking for a fun dog? An oh-so-happy, wiggly-butt dog of silliness? Then, look no further. You must meet Lady … Hi there, my name is Lady! Have you by chance seen my ball? Any ball will do – deflated basketball, deflated volleyball, tennis ball, softball, dog ball – I'm happy to see any or all of them. I love toys! I am friendly and I also love people. I get so excited to see them that I can't stop wagging my entire body, not just the tail, my entire body wags for you. I have a contagious smile and a heart of gold. I love to play. I am only 1 year old. Here at the shelter, we have to wait our turn to go outside to play and take a walk. Because my cage is at the end, I wait patiently all day – the last one to go out. While the other dogs are barking, jumping around and begging, I sit and wait quietly, patiently for my turn. That's unheard of in a large shelter with hundreds of dogs who want out as soon as possible. It just shows you what a gem I am. A lucky family is going to be very happy to take me home and add me to their family. Please just give me a chance! Adoption fee: $75. Adopt a pair: $115. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, 60 days of free pet insurance and microchip.I live at the Oakland County Animal Control and Pet Adoption Center at 1700 Brown Rd in Auburn Hills. You can visit me there any time the shelter is open. The shelter will not put me up for adoption because of my appearance, so my only way out of the shelter alive is through a rescue.To adopt, if you have a fenced yard, call Shannon with MPEP at 586-530-7511.To adopt, if you do not have a fenced yard, send an email to Rejoyceful Rescue at or apply online at!adoptapp/c1gm9.VISIT: Oakland County Animal Control and Pet Adoption Center, 1700 Brown Rd in Auburn Hills any time the shelter is open, Monday – Friday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. or Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
