Indy!

Indy is so excited to meet you, you and you! He loves everyone he meets! He is a young adult weighing in at 35 pounds. When he was surrendered the original owner said he was a German Shepherd/Heeler mix. While many feel sorry for him when they meet him, he does not see it that way! He radiates positivity and happiness. He loves everyone he has ever met. He loves dogs that love to play with him. He likes to chase the kitties in his home but will not hurt them. He does wish his people would never leave the house and prefers to never leave your side. Indy was originally an owner surrender to a rescue group in Kentucky because his needs were more than the breeder could handle. Indy suffers from Swimmers Syndrome. Swimmers Syndrome is a rare condition in which a puppy is unable to physically stand or walk, but instead lies flat on its chest and abdomen with hind legs extended behind and its forelegs extended to the front and/or sides. The only motion the puppy is capable of is paddling its limbs as though it is swimming. Indy is able to stand on his front legs and pull himself around that way. With his dragging and trying to stand, at times he does develop some sores and skin shearing and his hind limbs need to be wrapped or wearing sleeves/pants at all times. Because of his lack of muscle he does not have a lot of bladder control so he wears belly bands and because he drags his butt he wears a diaper. He has an easy therapy routine to maintain his range of motion and some swimming therapy to help maintain his strengthening. Indy is available for someone who is dedicated to learning his routine. We know that Indy may not be a great fit for every household but we know his perfect family is out there and he cannot wait to show them his sparkling personality and stunning smile!

Sampson!

Sampson is 5 years old and weighs around 60 pounds. His ideal home would be with someone who is dog savvy and can help him navigate his anxiety. New people and places can be overwhelming for him, but given adequate time and patience Sampson will warm up. His caretakers have grown to love the happy boy we know today. Once you get through his exterior, Sampson will show you his goofy and playful side. Creating a trusting bond is important in Sampson living a happy, healthy life. He gravitates to people who can provide a leadership role with him. Being an insecure guy, decisions can be overwhelming for him, so he relies on guidance from his human. Sampson knows all of his basic obedience, walks great on leash, and is crate and house trained. He really enjoys being outside, whether it be soaking up the sun, or hitting a hiking trail. He would do best as an only pet, and in a home with no children. Sampson is a good blend of chill and playful. If you’re looking for an outdoor adventure buddy who also appreciates some down time, Sampson just may be the perfect pup for you!

We want both Sampson and his adopter to be successful, so we are including training sessions for any potential adopters. Though he requires some patience, Sampson is a really great dog and would make a wonderful addition to someone’s home.

Sampson is currently staying at our rescue facility and would love to find a foster home while he waits for a forever home. Click the link below to learn more about our fostering program. http://misfitmuttsdogrescue.com/foster/

Brutus!

Our boy Brutus is still on the hunt for his second chance at a forever family! Mr. Brutus was originally adopted from us as a puppy about two years ago and he has once again landed in our care after having behavioral issues in his adoptive home.  Brutus is now about 3 years old, just under 20 pounds, and a DNA test showed him to be a Chihuahua/Belgian Malinois mix. “Small dog with a large personality” really rings true when it comes to Brutus with his high intelligence, an eagerness to work and be challenged, and his desire for human companionship.

Brutus has been in his foster home for a year and has gone through a 5 week board-and-train program with our friend Stephanie at the Beckett School. During his training, he has become very familiar with tools that will be essential for his every day life to help him keep a healthy state of mind and make good choices. Any interested adoptive home will be required to continue the use of these tools, experience isn’t required, but is definitely a bonus! An open mind to training tools and balanced training methods is a must. He has made amazing improvements since his board and train and we are so proud of him! Brutus is what we can best describe as a Sour Patch kid. He can be sweet, but he can also be sour. He struggles with food reactivity, resource guarding, and some other occasional cranky episodes that come mostly at night time, (waking up from a nap, not wanting to go in his crate) which his foster mom refers to as his night time “scaries”. He has not had one of these episodes in a couple months and is doing great!   Brutus is a great little adventure buddy and is always up for a walk, run, hike, or any other kind of activity his humans are up for. He loves being challenged mentally as well as physically and enjoys learning new tricks or working on the ones he already knows. He is also great when going on car rides and just sits back to enjoy the ride. Brutus has mastered the “place” command and while he is out of his kennel, spends most of his time inside relaxing in his “place” and practicing being calm and not letting himself get too over stimulated. Naps are one of his favorite activities and he makes some pretty funny noises while yawning. He is continuing to work through his food reactivity and resource guarding by practicing the “out” command daily. His favorite activity outside is grabbing a tennis ball or any toy and running around the yard with it in his mouth. Unlike a lot of us, Brutus loves the snow and will run around in the snow and chase after snowballs! After some extended decompression time, Brutus has been co-existing with the dogs in his foster home and has done very well with them under close supervision, although he prefers dogs closer to his size. He likes to chase and be chased by his four-legged friends and just likes to feel like one of the gang. Brutus would do well co-existing with other dogs as long as they respect his space.

Brutus would do best in a home with adults only. An active and structured home is his best fit, and a family that is 100% committed to keeping his training going throughout his life. Any leniency in this can create set backs and an environment that Brutus will take advantage of and will continue to act out in. He would love to do agility classes, obedience classes or other activities that help stimulate his busy mind. A home with a fenced in yard would be ideal to help him get as much exercise as possible. He truly is a great, quirky, little dog for the right home. He may be a challenging dog, but he is 100% worth it, he deserves a second chance at having a home. If you are looking for an adventure friend and feel like your home is the right environment for Brutus to continue to live a happy life, please fill out an application today!

 

 

 

Bonny!

Meet Bonny! Bonny is a 2 year old, 50 pound Terrier mix who was originally pulled from the Harris County Animal Shelter in Houston, TX. She traveled to Wisconsin in May where she continues to search for a forever home. She has completed a board and train program with our trainer and now has the tools to help her be a respectable girl. Bonny has a lot of great qualities. She is fully comfortable being crated, and is completely potty trained. She would do best in a home with no other pets. As far as we know she has not been exposed to children. She is very intelligent and has all of her basic obedience down pat. Bonny knows sit, stay, down, heel, and has great recall. She enjoys going for walks, car rides, playing with toys and being outside. Bonny is such a little love, and will take advantage of any opportunity to snuggle with her humans. She will require patience from her people as she gets acclimated. Bonny thrives with structure and consistency, and it will be important she gets this in her forever home. She is looking for an active family who is willing to continue on with her training while she searches for her forever family.

Oakley!

Oakley is still on the search for his new family! He came all the way up to Wisconsin from Texas on the search for a new family! He is about 2 years old and weighs 45 pounds. Oakley is thought to be a lab mix, but his breed is a best guess! Oakley is one smart cookie and has made amazing progress at his foster home. He already knows commands like “sit”, “stay”, “place”, “break”, “lay down”, and knows his name! His fosters say he is working on “heel” and “leave it” also and making progress! He can be best described as a high energy social butterfly that loves meeting new people. He is very playful and curious and loves to play with toys and go for walks. His foster family reports that he LOVES car rides and if it were up to him, he would spend the entire day outside. After being active and energetic all day, he is down for a snuggle session with his people. He has also spent some quality time around other dogs and has done really well playing with them and enjoys their company! Oakley has come a long way when it comes to crate training and being on a leash. He has improved so much with his crate training and only protests if there is someone in the home that he doesn’t know. Oakley has also improved so much on a leash with some training tools and lots of practice. His ideal family would be one that will continue to work with him on his training. He can get pretty excited when meeting new people and has a tendency to jump up on people so would do best in a home with older children. He would love a home with an active family and would also love a fenced in yard to help him run around and get rid of some excess energy. If you are an active family looking for an equally active adventure buddy and are ready to continue working with him on his training, Oakley is the perfect match for you!

 

 

 

 

Mark!

Meet Mark! Mark is full of personality and always up for a good time! He is 4 years old and currently weighs 60 pounds. Mark is fully crate and potty trained. He is known to seek out his crate out anytime he wants to take a nap, and views it as his safe, calm space. He appreciates a good fetch session, and absolutely loves tennis balls. Mark is a good blend of active and chill. He would thrive with someone who can fulfill him both physically and mentally. When Mark has gotten his energy out, he is always down for a cuddle session. Mark is looking for a foster or adopter who can provide him with the structure and consistency he needs to be the best boy possible. Mark has high prey drive to small animals. Because of this, he would do best in a home as an only dog, and will need a fenced in yard. He is eager to please, and such a smart pup. He loves every human he encounters, and is just an all around happy dude. Because of his overzealous greetings, we think a home with older children or none at all would be best for him. He is hard at work on his obedience and leash skills. Mark is making great strides, and would love to find someone who can continue on with his training. Mark enjoys time outside, soaking up the sun and being with his people. There is so much to love about Mark, and he would be grateful to find someone who is willing to open their heart and home to him. He is sure to win you over with that perfect Pittie smile!  *Mark is available for foster or adoption!*

Kalie! 

 

Kalie and her adorable ears can’t wait for you to learn a little more about her! She is about 7 months old, is a Shepherd mix and weighs 40 pounds. She may be small now, but she will be a medium to large sized pup when fully grown. Kalie is now fully potty trained in her foster home and she will continue to do well with a structured schedule and routine in her new home as well!

This sweet girl loves people and other dogs, but can be nervous at first when meeting them, but warms up pretty quickly once she has had time to assess the situation. She has really been enjoying riding in the car and working on basic commands with her foster mom! Kalie is a very smart pup and has already mastered the art of walking on a leash and is a great listener! She is currently fostered with other dogs and cats, and has been around kids ages 5-teens and does great with everyone. She sometimes chases the cats if they run away, but redirects well if told “no”. She loves to play with dog friends and would love a home that has another dog that likes to play as well. Kalie is a chewer so needs lots of options for toys to chew on to keep her busy, but her foster says she has done great as long as she gets plenty of exercise and at least one daily walk. She has really caught on to playing fetch which has helped get her extra energy out.

This special girl will need a home that has breed experience and is ready to enroll her in training classes. Patience, a good routine/structure, and exercise will also be a requirement for Kalie’s adoptive home. If this sounds like a good fit for you, fill out an application for Kalie today!

 

 

 

Phoebe!

Meet Phoebe ❤️

Phoebe is a beautiful 4 year old mix breed girl who is currently looking for a place to grow some roots. Unfortunately, Phoebe hasn’t had a lot of stability in her short life, and is hoping to find someone who can show her compassion and patience as she gets acclimated to a new home. The key to Phoebe’s heart is a relationship built on trust. Her initial response is shyness, but given adequate time, Phoebe will show you her soul is pure gold and be your best friend. We have witnessed Phoebe blossom in the short time she has been with her foster family. She greets her humans with full body wags, and affectionately will nudge their hands when she wants more scratches. Phoebe enjoys playing with toys, appreciates a good bone to chew on, and a good nap in her dog bed. We are so happy with her progress, and would love for her to take the next step in finding her forever home!

Phoebe is full grown at 54 pounds. She is crate and potty trained. Phoebe does best with male dogs, and wouldn’t be a good candidate for a home with another female dog. She is currently fostered with a male large breed dog, and a cat. Phoebe does not like to share food, toys or bones with other animals, so it will be important that she gets these resources when she is separated from the other dogs or cats in the home. Phoebe is an insecure girl, and does require slow intros to other dogs. She would be most successful with another mellow canine friend who can be respectful of her space when she needs it. Phoebe really enjoys the cat in her foster home and will engage in play. She has no issues with people and is very respectful. Due to her fearfulness, Phoebe is looking for a home with no small children. She is nervous in the car and of passing cars while out on a walk. Her foster family is working her through these things, but it will take time, commitment, and consistency from her humans. We would love to offer her forever family some training sessions to continue to help Phoebe navigate her fear and insecurities. She currently knows her basic commands including sit, down, kennel up, and place. She is a smart girl, and responds to direction well. Phoebe is currently on Apoquel and a fish based diet to combat her allergies. She has responded beautifully to her new regimen and her coat is already looking so much better. Phoebe is feeling great, and has a new lease on life. She would love to find a calm, safe place to call her own. Give Phoebe a shot and you are sure to be rewarded with a companion who will make your days a little bit brighter! 🥰

 

 

 

Blair!

Meet Blair! ❤️

Blair came to us after she wound up in Angleton Animal Shelter. We don’t know much about her story, but she has adjusted to life in her foster home and is ready to make the leap to a forever home! Blair around 6 months old and currently weighs 46 months pounds. Her breeds are unknown, but we estimate she will be medium-large in size when full grown. Blair is such a sweet girl. She can be a bit timid when meeting new friends, but warms up quickly. She loves other dogs, and humans of all ages. Blair is very submissive and respectful of other dogs, and enjoys playing very much! She is doing good with crate training, and potty training with the schedule her foster family has her on. Blair would do best in a home with no cats. She is an active girl and loves to get out for walks. Blair can be overzealous when meeting guests, and is still learning how to appropriately greet new friends. She is very puppy, and still learning the ropes!

Blair has a big personality and can be described as animated and silly. She is a toy enthusiast, and has no problem entertaining herself. She is very affectionate and will happily curl up in your lap if allowed. She would love to find someone who can commit to training and ensuring she gets appropriate exercise. Blair would make a perfect companion for someone who is active. She appreciates getting outside to explore. She would love a canine companion, but would also be fine as an only dog. Blair has so much potential and would love to join your family for all your fun adventures!

 

 

 

Elwood!

Meet Elwood! This handsome dude is around 2 years old and weighs in at 60 pounds. Elwood is fostered with other big dogs, and cats. He really enjoys the company of the dogs in his home, but likes to make a game of chasing the cats. Although he is catching on that the cats are off limits we think Elwood’s best fit home would include no small dogs, or cats. He is potty trained, and working really hard at crate training. Elwood doesn’t like to be left alone, so he does great in his crate overnight, but will protest when his humans leave the house. His foster family is working with him on being more confident, and comfortable in his crate. He is making great progress, but will need continued work in a new home. Elwood is so sweet and incredibly smart. He has all of his basic obedience under his belt, and thrives with structure in the home. He is an active dog who will require adequate daily exercise. Luckily, Elwood is very respectful on leash and loves to get out for walks. He also loves a good romp around the yard with his canine friends, and time spent outside. Elwood is also trained to walk on the treadmill. He picks up new tasks quickly, and is always ready to learn. Once he is given an outlet to get his energy out, he loves to curl up and rest beside you. Elwood has so much potential and would love to find a dedicated owner who can show him the way. We have really enjoyed getting to know his lovable demeanor. If you are a patient person, can provide Elwood with the leadership he craves, and are in the market for an awesome dog, look no further! Elwood is just the guy for you! ❤️

 

 

 

Raven! – PENDING!

Raven is a 1.5 year-old female black lab corgi mix looking to bring joy, love, adventure, and a bit of magic into your life! Raven is a stunning blend of intelligence, loyalty, and charm, who is as unique as she is adorable. Fully house-trained, potty-trained, and crate-trained, Raven is a model of good behavior. She has been exposed to dogs and older children and has done great after appropriate introductions.

One of Raven’s favorite pastimes is exploring the great outdoors with her muggles. While Raven may initially be a bit shy and skittish, her curiosity knows no bounds. With a patient and understanding approach, she’ll gradually warm up to her new surroundings and shower her lucky adopter with unconditional love. Much like the ghostly Moaning Myrtle from Harry Potter, Raven occasionally emits soft grumbling noises, adding a touch of whimsy to her already enchanting personality. She is the perfect size at just under 40 pounds!

If Raven sounds like the perfect companion for your home, fill out an application today!

 

 

 

 

Beau!

This gorgeous boy is Beau and he is so over the moon excited to meet his new forever family! He is just about 70 pounds and is a 9 month old Catahoula mix. Beau is a big lover of people and dogs and his favorite activity is playing with other dogs! He is a confident and highly active pup with a zest for life that is quite contagious.

Beau would love an active family that is ready to help embolden his adventurous spirit. He enjoys walks, hiking, car rides, chewing on tough toys, and anything that his humans are doing! Not only is he a rockstar in the crate, but he has been doing really well on a regular schedule for potty training. Beau is a highly motivated dude and loves to learn, but with his puppy energy, may need a few reminders!

He has been around teenagers and some younger children but with his size and tendency to jump up, we wouldn’t recommend small children. Beau is currently fostered with a cat and can sometimes chase him if he runs, but has been getting better about respecting his personal space. Beau would really benefit from a family that is willing to continue working with him on learning manners and obedience to become a well rounded dog! Could you be the family he has been searching for?

 

 

 

Goose! – PENDING!

This handsome young pup is Goose! He traveled up here with his siblings and is finally ready to make his adoption debut. He is just under 3 months old and currently weighs under 20 pounds, but we have a feeling he will keep growing! His breeds are a best guess but we know one thing is for sure, he sure is cute.

After some time adjusting in his foster home, Goose has made lots of progress. At first he wasn’t so sure about his kennel but he has grown to realize it is a nice place to hang out while his humans aren’t home or for bedtime. He is currently fostered with a large dog and also some cats! He has done really well with the cats and does not chase them but will engage in play if they are wanting to have some fun. He enjoys playing with other dogs and has been very submissive so far with the ones he has met.

Although Goose loves people, he prefers to have slow introductions so he can meet you at his own pace. Goose or “Goosie” as his foster family lovingly calls him would love an active home that can keep up with his goofy puppy energy and spend lots of time adventuring outside. His foster brother is a husky and Goose has been known to try to “howl” along with him, let’s just say he is still working on it.

He enjoys playing and chewing on sticks, chasing around ball toys, going for walks, and taking naps when he is pooped from running around outside. Goose loves being close to his humans but also seems to enjoy having his own space and can entertain himself. He would do well as an only dog or with a doggie friend. His ideal family would be cognizant of the fact that he is a young pup that will need structure and training to continue to make good choices and be the best dog he can be! Maybe it could be you! Apply today!
