Athena! 

Our next precious soul is Athena, and she made quite the impression on our whole team at intake yesterday! She absolutely loves hugs, and gave everyone she met a few of them. With such an incredible personality like hers, there’s no ignoring her! 🥰 This 3 year old little lady was pulled from a high-kill shelter in the Memphis area. Her shelter was so crowded that dogs were only fed Monday-Friday, once a day. With so many dogs and so few staff and volunteers, Athena only got to see the outdoors when her kennel run was being cleaned. Athena is just so sweet and gentle, they couldn’t let her die in there. Now, she has the chance to meet the family she has always deserved. Athena is blind in one eye, but she never lets that hold her back. She is great with children and really just needs a family who can shower her with love. Athena would do best as an only dog. If you’d like to meet Athena, don’t waste any time!

 

Murphy!

This handsome little boy is Murphy! Murphy is about nine months old and is a mixed breed. He doesn’t have the face of a boxer, but he sure has the ups and wiggles of one!

Murphy may look a bit familiar, he was adopted out this summer as a little pup, but has found himself looking for a home that’s a better fit. Murphy has a lot of puppy energy, and is working hard on his manners. He is such a sweetheart and likes just about every human he meets. He absolutely loves to play with other dogs and would love a partner in crime, although he would do just fine as an only dog. With all the wiggles and jumps he has, we would like to see him go to a home without young children. Murphy is potty trained and is currently working on kennel training.

If you’re looking for an adventure buddy during the day and a snuggle bug at night, Murphy is your guy!

 

Sasha!

Here is a face that is sure to warm you right up on this chilly Wisconsin evening🥶. This sweet pup was found in Texas after being dumped out of a truck on the side of the road. Luckily someone saw this happen and snatched her right up. We don’t know exactly what happened to her before she was dumped, but we can imagine it wasn’t very nice 😔. Thanks to our friend Tricia and the work of Sasha’s foster in Texas, this gal has come a long way from the terrified little pup who was dumped.

She is now blossoming into the fun loving dog that she was always meant to be! Sasha has your typical puppy energy and is very intelligent. There is no toy in the world that she wouldn’t play with and seems to really love making doggie friends. Although she is a little much sometimes for her little foster brother and sisters, she is slowly learning her manners. If you would like to learn more about this cutie please e-mail our adoptions team at misfitmuttsdogrescue@gmail.com.

 

Lady Belle!

Lady Belle isn’t too thrilled about all this snow, but she is excited to be in Wisconsin searching for her forever family! ❄️☃️ This little lady is around 6 years old and is full of personality! If you’re looking for the perfect lap dog, she’s your girl. She has been fostered with many different dogs and does great with everyone. Because of her size, she would do best in a home with older children. She is leaving her days in Texas behind her, and is eager to have a fresh start here in Wisconsin. 🥰

 

 

Peggy!

Peggy is 12 years young, but don’t let her age fool you, she still has spunk and gets random zoomies around the house 😂. Although she isn’t known as a cuddler, she does like to go with the flow and hang out quietly. Peggy does well in her crate, she listens well, comes when called, gets along with other dogs, she also enjoys playing dress up so you can put cute sweaters on her for every occasion ❤️ What more could you ask for?? Even though Peggy was found as a stray, she has adapted to life in a home very well! If you are looking for a quiet companion to add to your home, visit our website to fill out an application for the chance to meet this sweet older gal.

 

Jack!

Jack traveled to us a couple weeks ago from our friends at Pet Tribe, Inc.. He is around 8 months old and weighs 57 pounds. We believe Jack is some sort of Dutch Shepherd mix. He is extremely smart and eager to learn. Jack and his fosters have been working with Dan at Titletown K9 Academy LLC and this guy has been thriving with the training plan they have set in place for him.

Jack is searching for an active family, someone that is able to give him proper exercise and structure. We would love to find him a family that is interested in keeping up with his training because he has picked up on all the tasks he has been given so quickly. If you are not familiar with Shepherds please do your research before applying! Jack is currently being fostered with another dog and does great. While he is a very active dog, he also appreciates a good cuddle session with his foster Mom. We are so excited to find Jack a forever home. The sky is the limit for this guy! 💙

 

Serena!

Serena is a confident little lady. Her foster Mom describes her as being fearless! She gets along great with her foster siblings, but would probably be too much for an older dog. Serena is a very smart puppy, and would thrive in obedience classes. She is about 11 weeks old and ready for her happy tails story!

 

Oreo!

Oreo is doing great with crate training, and working hard on potty training. He is currently being fostered with another adult dog and does great! He enjoys walks, playing outside in the yard, and cuddles on the couch with his foster Mom. This little hunk is about 11 weeks old and ready to fill your home and heart with joy! 

 

Chloe!

This little black beauty is full of spunk and she loves to wrestle and play with her much bigger foster sister. After a good wrestle session, she is more than happy to cuddle up on the couch and watch your favorite show with you, or maybe sleep through it instead 🤪. She has been around smaller children and her foster mom said she was very calm and really loved all of the extra belly rubs. Her foster mom describes Chloe as being very brave and her own personal little shadow around the house ❤️. Noises, new surroundings, and new people don’t scare this gal but she isn’t the biggest fan of that cold stuff on the ground 🥶. Chloe is about 13 weeks old and around 15 pounds. She is working very hard on potty training and almost has her crate training mastered too!

If you are looking for a fearless pup to be the life of the party at your house, please fill out an application for a chance to meet this sweetie.

 

Aubrey!

This little lady is around 9 years old and came to us from Texas. She is super laid back and loves nothing more than a good cuddle session with her foster Mom. When Aubrey isn’t cuddling she loves to visit Bark and Brew. While she enjoys the company of other dogs she would rather test out all the dog parents laps. She really is the ultimate lap dog! Aubrey is house trained, does well in a crate, and gets along with all dogs. If you are in the market for a loyal companion Aubrey is the girl for you!

 

Kody!

We are so excited to introduce you to this handsome little man named Kody. He came to us as an owner surrender from Texas after a woman reached out to a friend of ours and said her dog wasn’t happy about a new friend in the house. She knew that Kody would find an amazing home up here in Wisconsin, so they sent him to us!

Transport was tough for this guy, like it is for most, and he was a bit scared once he came off of the bus. After spending a few weeks in his foster home, he has truly blossomed into the dog he was meant to be. He is getting along and playing well with his furry foster sister, and is no longer scared of strangers coming into the house. He may take a little while to warm up in a new environment, but once he does, he is sure to be the best companion anyone could hope for!

We think that Kody would do well in a home without small children and another doggie companion would be a great plus.

 

Uncle Bud!

We are sure you are all bundled up on this cold winter evening like the rest of us 🥶. Maybe you are wishing you had a furry little buddy to snuggle up with on nights like these? Well look no further, we have the perfect cuddle companion for you! Uncle Bud is just that, a lover and a cuddle bug to his core🥰.

This dashing older gentleman was pulled from a shelter in Texas by one of our friends at Lola’s Lucky Day and he has never looked back. As with most senior dogs, Uncle Bud comes with some minor health issues. He has what is called a collapsed trachea. This sounds scary but it makes him sound like he has an old man cough and is managed with some medication. Although he has come from unknown beginnings, he is looking to live out his golden years with the right family who wants to give him all of the love he has always deserved, but possibly never gotten 😢.

Kevin!

When Kevin’s human in Tennessee got arrested and sent to jail, this sweet boy’s world was turned upside down and he found himself dumped at Shelbyville Animal Control. Unfortunately, this poor sweet pup was heartworm positive. As if a parasite literally eating away at your heart wasn’t bad enough, this boy was also suffering from a pretty bad skin infection. With the shelter filling up and Kevin’s time running out, he needed a plan and fast! A generous Shelbyville law Officer offered to sponsor Kevin’s heartworm treatment as long as somebody could save him and get him out. That’s when we got the desperate call from one of our partners, and of course we said yes without hesitation!

His foster in Tennessee took special care of him and got him feeling well enough to travel up to Wisconsin for his second chance at a happy life 🥰 Since he has been in our care, his foster has taken great care of him and has lots of amazing things to say about him! Kevin enjoys the company of other dogs, but would be ok with being an only child. He loves to be by his humans and snuggle. A home with a fenced yard and not a lot of stairs would be perfect for him. He is also said to be a bit ‘hard of hearing’ and will need someone with some patience to help him learn the rules at his new home and give him lots of TLC and positive reinforcement. We would also prefer him to be in a home without smaller children. Kevin is easy to love and eager to please his humans. If you are looking for a handsome fella to be the new friend in your life, please fill out an adoption application.

 

Maggie!

Some of you may remember our girls, Ivy & Katie, that were adopted out a few months ago. Well, this is their Momma, Maggie! ❤️

Maggie traveled to us from Tennessee a couple weeks ago and is currently accepting applications for a family. Maggie is about as sweet as they get! If you’re in the market for a 50 pound lap dog, Maggie is your girl. She loves to cuddle and really enjoys outdoor adventures with her foster mom. Maggie would love a dog sibling, but can do without feline friends. No need to worry about potty and crate training this girl! She is 5 years old and already has the house training down pat.

 

Bubba!

Our super handsome man, Bubba, is still searching for a forever home! 😍
Bubba has been patiently waiting for a family. He is around a year old, does great with other dogs, has made friends with the cat in his foster home, and is potty trained. What more could you ask for?! Bubba is still a young dog and is working on basic commands. He would love an active family that can show him what Wisconsin is all about!

 

Dixie!

Dixie was found wandering the streets of Houston. Luckily for Dixie a kind Samaritan came to her rescue. She was a shy girl, but quickly came out of her shell, and showed her rescuer just how much she appreciated being taken off the streets.

Dixie is putting those days behind her, and is officially accepting applications for a family of her very own. She is estimated to be 1.5 years old, and weighs around 30 pounds. Her breed is a best guess, but we believe she is some sort of Beagle mix. She enjoys the company of other dogs, and because of her shy demeanor she would do best with older children that understand boundaries. She is potty trained, and working hard at crate training.

 

Bailey!

We are excited to reintroduce you to our girl Bailey! This girl came to us in October with her siblings as strays from Texas. It can only be imagined what these sweet babies endured while living the streets before they were saved by our friends at Pet Tribe🐾.

Sadly, she was returned to us recently and her original foster stepped up to take her back. Her foster has been an amazing advocate to get her ready for her chance at the perfect family for her. Bailey has been working very hard on her confidence and independence and has made great strides! She has mastered sit, stay, down, and potty training. Bailey’s ideal home would be one with another active dog that can show her the ropes and help bring her out of her shell. She loves going for walks, chew toys, and playing fetch. Lots of patience and understanding as she adjusts to a new environment is a must for this sweet gal.
