Holly - Detroit, MI

This adorable sweetie pie  is Holly!  She is a young female spayed Pittie.


Holly was found on the highway, after being hit by a car. She has had a lengthy recovery, but an inoperable dislocated vertebrae makes it impossible for her to walk again.  Holly does not let her special needs get her down!! She is grateful to have been saved and is looking for her forever home in which she can thrive!!

Holly knows how to do a lot of things! She can hump around like a seal, stare into your eyes, use her wheelchair. She is very dog, cat, kid - everything friendly! But needs to be allowed to be a bit of a boss. Holly would love a single story home, with not to many steps out to the  backyard. The great big news about her is that she is now able to hold her urine more and more! At 30 pounds, caring for Holly is not strenuous work. She is very sweet about diaper changes and physical therapy exercises. Holly has a big, sweet personality. She is very content. 

For more information please visit: rebeldogsdetroit.com/applytoadopt . Questions can also be answered by text or call: 313-338-4398.  Holly is available within 100 miles of Detroit.

Found as a stray south of Reed City, this handsome neutered male lab mix is quite the sweetheart here and has TONS of unconditional love to offer his new humans! Austin has stolen our hearts!

Pookie - Detroit, MI

Meet Pookie, an 11 yr old, 19 lb neutered male Pekingese!

Don't you dare call Pookie cute!! (even though he's adorable!)  Pookie is a grouchy curmudgeon and don't you forget it!   Here are the facts: Pookie is not a charmer. He is self-important, and will love you, once he knows you. Pookie has outlived a past owner, is now 11, and ready for a spoiled retirement.


Please know the breed or read up before inquiring - he is a grumpy dude! Pookie can live with children who respects his boundaries, other small to medium dogs who lay off, and he is good with cats. Pookie loves walks and car rides, and is a great guard dog. He is easy to groom once you have gained his trust. Pookie likes to sit on the lap, being carried or lifted. He has perfect health, other than a minor case of cherry eyes (vet said to leave it as it was).


Pookie is available to be adopted within ~100 miles of his rescue. Inquire to meet this grumpy-pants today- he is perfect! For more information please email: info@rebeldogsdetroit.com.

Koko - Detroit, MI

Meet Koko!  What a face!  Koko is a 14 yr old, 11 lb, female spayed Shih Tzu.

Have you ever seen such a beautiful lady? Nope, not at 14 you haven't! She is 14 years old and still acts like a puppy. Koko can run, she can snuggle - she can't hear - but she can hide. In the trash if you're not careful!  She loves all other animals and kids! 

Koko was going to be euthanized by the family when her owner died. We got her as a surrender. She just got spayed and had a mammary mass removed - the vast majority of mammary tumors in unspayed dogs are cancereous and will spread, so that is probably on the horizon. Koko also appears to be fully deaf. She pees half a tablespoon, 10 times a day, we are addressing it medically. But she might just have this issue the rest of her life. Stools are solid and she goes outside!

Koko is so much fun, but realistically doesn't have a ton of time left. Fostering is always free! Click on:  rebeldogsdetroit.com/applytoadopt or call 313-338-4398

Paisley - Ortonville, MI

Meet Paisley!  She is a 3 yr old, 50 lb, female spayed Pittie mix.

Precious Paisley has a special story. She is a survivor. She was rescued in July from a suspected dog fighting operation. It was then found out that she has mast cell tumors. She is living a comfortable life with management of her diagnosis as it cannot be curable.


She is learning that this world can be a wonderful place. She has met a cat and a few dogs and has been playful with both but is still very unsure about them. There is a potential she could live with cat(s) and a low energy dog. She is typically low in energy but does have some spunk in her.


She loves to explore outside and enjoys snuggling up in her dog bed inside. She LOVES Kong’s and peanut butter stuffed bones. She enjoys ground beef mixed with her kibble and deserves to live out whatever time she may have being spoiled. She is quiet in her crate and loves treats.


She is a sweet girl that would love a quiet and patient forever home. She needs a home that understand that she takes a while to warm up. She needs her forever family to be patient with her as she explores and learns. Once she is comfortable with you she will follow you around and ask for pets. She loves to be loved on. Whoever is amazing enough to welcome Paisley in their home is going to be soooo lucky to look at her beautiful eyes every day. Paisley is looking for her forever home or a long term foster to spoil her and give her so much love.

Paisley's rescue would like her to stay relatively local to Michigan.  For more information, please email: ccrcdogs@ccrcdogs.com.
