Derived from the name Michael, meaning "who is like god". Mikey is known to be an angel and many Saints, Emperors, and Kings have borne this name.
Mikey came to us in January as a puppy from Chain of Hope, with his eight other siblings. He was adopted out and recently returned, not to any fault of his own, but due to his family not having enough time for him. Mikey is now being fostered in a home with kids and other dogs and attends doggy day care with his foster mom. He is a happy puppy and very eager to please. He is patiently awaiting his forever family to come meet him!

Mikey lives with two adults and a teenager. He has a male foster dog brother, who is his actual brother, and two male foster dog sisters. They all get along great and love having mikey as a foster brother. Mikey has a privacy fenced backyard he will play in for hours with the other dogs. He does well on car rides and enjoys going to doggy daycare with his brother and foster mom. He sleeps in his kennel at night and whines for a few minutes and then calms down.
