Claire was originally picked up as a stray at 4 months old and found herself in the Conroe Animal Shelter in Texas where she became very overwhelmed, which understandably happens to a lot of dogs. The shelter staff saw how stressed out she was and reached out to one of the volunteers with Lola’s Lucky Day to ask if she could take Claire to her home. She of course said yes! She did wonderfully in her foster home in Texas and blossomed into a wonderful pup 🥰.
Since arriving in Wisconsin Claire has had some unfortunate luck with foster homes and potential adoptive homes. The longer she was in foster care, the less sure of herself she became and a lot of fear and anxiety based behaviors started to show. We decided that her best option would be to spend some time with our friend Stephanie at Becket School of Canine Training & Rehabilitation. Since being with Stephanie, Claire has made amazing progress and has started to become more confident by the day and working through her fears.
Her breed is a best guess, she is now about a year old and roughly 50 pounds. Although Claire enjoys the company of other dogs, it takes a while for her to warm up to them so she may need a couple meets with any new potential doggie siblings. She is hesitant toward some people but warms up quickly to women and once she knows she can trust you, she is as loyal of a dog as can be. She would love an active family and a fenced in yard. She does not get along with kitty friends so she would need a home without cats, and we recommend a home with children over the age of 12. She has an amazing zest for life and is always ready and eager to learn new commands and please her people. She is super smart, eager to learn, and very food motivated. This girl will do anything for a treat 🥰
Claire would really thrive in a home that can continue to give her some structure and mental/physical stimulation. We are looking to place Claire on a foster-to-adopt basis and she will go directly from our trainer to an adoptive home to ensure that the training she has received will continue after adoption and throughout her life. It is important to us at MMDR that we set Claire and her adopters up for success.

At roughly 8 years old, Disco’s family had to make the very hard decision to rehome her. Her anxiety with the small children of the home wasn’t getting any better and they knew she deserved a better life. Upon joining MMDR Disco instantly began training with Mydeik. She has been using this training to help cope with her anxiety and stress and find better outlets. With the help of her foster parents in completing her designated “homework”, Disco has been able to progress.
With this progress, we are ready to rehome her! She would do best in a home with no children and would prefer to be your only pet. Due to her special circumstances we would like to do a 3 week foster to adopt process. During this foster duration Mydiek would like to continue with Disco’s training and ensure her future family learns her new methods as well. This will give her and the future family enough time to get to know one another and ensure it’s a great fit!
Disco is a sweet squishy faced pup that just got off with a rough start. With the right family being patient and determined to progress with her she would fit right in. Could you be her fur ever home?
**Please note that we adopt all dogs out on a best fit basis and not first come, first serve. There will be no exceptions to Disco’s adoption guidelines. Please do not apply if you have children or other pets in the home*
Ramona! – PENDING!
Cash This past January we received a plea for help from a family that had fallen on hard times and was now homeless. They were moving into a shelter, but their dog, Cash, could not stay with them. He had been living in the family’s car. They needed help finding temporary placement for Cash for 2 months until they could get back on their feet. With the cold temperatures of a Wisconsin winter we knew we needed to come up with a plan for him.
We made arrangements to get Cash into our care. He stayed at the rescue for a little while until we found a foster home for him. Cash lived with with Laughrin family for three months. We stayed in contact with his owners during his entire stay with us, and offered to find him a forever home if they were not able to take him back. After going back and forth about Cash, his family found a place to live and at the end of March they came back to get him. Fast forward one week when we received a call from Wisconsin Humane Society Green Bay Campus. Luckily, we had Cash microchipped while he was with us. His family had surrendered him to the shelter and when they scanned him for a microchip, our information showed up. We got Cash back into our care that day. Cash was visibly stressed by all this change, but his foster family accepted him back with open arms!
Cash is now looking for a forever family. He is around a year old and weighs 52 pounds. He currently is being fostered with two older children. He is a big puppy, and is working on his basic obedience and manners. He would do best in a home with no other pets, or small children. He had his first training session last week, and is starting to catch on! Cash is active and would love someone that enjoy outdoor activities. His adopter will be provided with a session from our trainer to ensure they have all the tools for success when bringing Cash home. He is a very sweet boy, who needs someone to show him what life is all about!
JayCee! – PENDING!
Meet JayCee! This hunky boy is so excited to find his forever home. Like a lot of our dogs, Jaycee was pulled from an overcrowded shelter in Texas. We know very little about his past, but what we do know is Jaycee will make a great addition to someones home! He is estimated to be around 2 years old and weighs about 62 pounds. Jaycee’s soulful eyes will melt your heart and he is sure to work his way right into your lap, which just happens to be his favorite place.
Jaycee is an active dog that would thrive with someone that can provide him with adequate exercise and stimulation. He is very smart, and eager to please which will make training very fun! He is working on his basic obedience and has proven to have so much potential. Fast movements and loud noises make him nervous, so he would do best in a home without small children. He would also do best in a home with a bigger female dog, or as an only pet. No kitties or small dogs! He has been doing great in his crate, and is potty trained!
If you are in the market for a dog to accompany you on outdoor adventures, or a companion to unwind with, look no further! Jaycee is just the dog for you
This is Kodiak. He is about 9 months old, weighs 30 pounds and is listed as a cattle dog/heeler mix. His foster mom says that he loves to play and has a lot of energy at times, but he also knows when it is time to relax on the couch for a bit 😊. Like most heeler mixes, Kodiak is extremely smart and thrives when he is learning new things and benefits greatly from being challenged mentally and physically. He enjoys taking rides in the car, playing tug, and romp around with his doggie foster siblings. Kodiak has mastered all the basic commands but is still working on “stay”. He is mostly potty trained, but in a new environment, he would need some patience in learning the ropes.
He would do best in a home with a nice big yard so he has room to run and play. Kodiak would need to be in a home with no cats and older children that understand how to be respectful of dogs and their space.
Herding breeds are not the best fit for every family and lifestyle, so if you are unfamiliar with the breed, please do your research before applying 🙂.
This handsome fella has the blues. He thought he hit the jackpot as a young pup. Tex was born in rescue, and found a home- and with his sister! Sadly, their family decided not to keep Tex. While he was welcomed back into rescue with open arms, this guy is ready for a home of his own! Doggy siblings would be great, as long as they are fairly close to his 88 pound size. (Applicants with small dogs/cats/other small pets will not be considered). Tex is close to four years old, and very intelligent. A home willing to teach him new commands, and provide puzzle toys is highly desired. He enjoys the outdoors, and wouldn’t mind chillin in a kiddie pool on the hottest of days. Tex makes the best of his time in rescue, and has been super sweet with our volunteers. Looking to adopt an adventure partner for all seasons? Tex is your guy!
Miss Independent here is looking for a pack to call her own. While Maddie enjoys the company of other dogs large and small, she takes things much slower with humans. Her forever home will need to have another canine(or canines), to help build her confidence. Composure is an absolute must when it comes to her human kin folk. Madison did not have the easiest start to life, and learning to dog with a new family will take some time. Don’t expect endless cuddles from this 25 pound lowrider- but once she learns to trust you- she is down for some head scratches. A quiet environment with no small children is instrumental is helping her thrive. Maddie is close to a year and a half old, and has house training down. Her kennel is her safe space, and instrumental in helping her decompress. Her amazing foster family has made strides with her, and have shared how rewarding it is to watch her progress. Madison has found joy in laying in people beds, and has even started hanging on the couch for movie nights. Respecting her comfort level is key. Madison was found wandering in a forest with severe mange, and looked like a completely different dog. The things she felt the need to defend herself against prior to being rescued are unknown. What we know for sure, is a dedicated home who will go at her pace can change her life forever!
“I wanna love you, and treat you right”
Oh, sorry- when I hear my own name, I can’t help but think of the late singer. I also happen to be looking for a family, so how fitting are these lyrics?
Music is totally my thing. I even do my own dance. Most call it the wiggle. It’s a miracle my bum hasn’t fallen off yet, as I shake it so much!
“I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it” Due to my spirited movements, and my 77 pound frame- I need animal friends of my own size. If your pets are smaller than me, yours I cannot be.
I am a super happy guy, and have lots of energy at 2.5 years old. I am happy to join you for your workout, or we can play outside- it really doesn’t matter what we do “As long as you love meeeee”
Submit your application, and let’s get started on our life’s playlist!
Happy is a lifestyle, and Mika is in search of a family to live it with. There is so much in her short past that she could dwell on, but she has chosen instead to love and trust. Mika is a friend to dogs large and small. She has lived with older kids and adults in her foster home, and has been a grade A partner in crime whether playing in the yard or chillin on the couch. A home with other dogs would be ideal- and if her people could hang with her in the yard, she would be on cloud nine. Fetch, toys, walks- its always a good time with Mika. Don’t expect to hear her hoot and holler during play sessions, as Mika isn’t very vocal. She is described as the sweetest girl, and will also soak up any attention you have to give. She is still mastering house training, so her forever family will need to continue working with her. Mika was found on the streets, so home life is understandably new to her. Mika is just approaching 5 months of age, and would love to give you a snuggle for every day she has been on this earth. If you’ve got room for a 30 pound ball of love, apply to adopt Mika!

In return, you will recieve endless amounts of love and tail wags. Spanky bonds very closely with his person. He loves sitting in your lap for cuddles or just being wherever you are.

Timbo! – PENDING!
This young man has quite the personality. 4 year old Timbo will wow you with his manners. He enjoys the company of other dogs- and will adjust to your bedtime routine, rapidly. He has been sleeping in his kennel without protest, and doing so many other things to make his foster family smile. While he is quite mellow, he does enjoy a good birthday party- and will even sing along when the guest of honor is blowing out their candles! If the party scene is quiet, he’ll settle for a walk and a few choice toys. Timbo is just happy to be with his people, young and old! This handsome fella requests a forever home with ample snuggles, pets, and scratches. If you have other dogs, he may forget that your lap isn’t just his and let out a little grumble- but then he remembers to share the love, and all is well. Like any dog, he will need decompression time. Upon arriving in foster, Timbo marked his new territory some. Once he settles in, this happens less and less- and outside is the number one pit stop. Patience is a must, and will come easily when you look into those sweet eyes. Timbo does have a hip that acts up from time to time, but is easily maintained by keeping a steady weight and getting some exercise. He is truly a dog who wants to hang with you whether you are in tennis shoes, or house slippers!
