Claire!

Meet Claire, long time foster searching for a small circle to call her own. We’re keeping it real when we say “small circle” as patience and a quiet home are key to earning Claire’s trust.
Claire could be described as a girl’s girl, but slow intros are required even when making new female friends. As with any dog, decompression is key. She hasn’t spent much time around the men folk, but its safe to say befriending humans of the opposite sex will take additional time. Intros need to happen on Claire’s terms, and anyone looking to rush things need not apply.
Boisterous personalities and spontaneous movements can be very scary for Claire. Please do not submit an adoption application for her if there are any children in your home. Other dogs, or cats who can kick it with canines are absolutely fine- just keep in mind Rome wasn’t built in a day. Gradual intros, reassurance, and praise are your best friend when it comes to making Claire your pet’s best friend. Though she needs a zen environment to thrive, Claire is energetic. She likes to play with doggy friends, and enjoys walks and fetch. While she enjoys friend dates, sharing snacks/treats is not on her to do list. Its important that Claire have her own space for meals and snacks. We don’t know what lead to Claire finding herself in a shelter at four months old, but since then what’s hers is hers when it comes to tasty morsels. (Who could blame her?)
This beauty is house-trained, though she may spring a leak if startled. She is a good girl when its kennel time, and will be forever grateful when blessed with a new puzzle toy. Claire isn’t fully comfortable with car rides just yet, but makes a polite passenger anyway. Though she is under 2 years old, she has spent ample time working with a trainer. Continued structure and reassurance are vital in setting her up for success. In return, you’ll get 60 pounds of pure love. Good things take time-if you’re willing to take things slow, and remain dedicated- we’ve got someone you should meet.

 

 

Freya!

“Hey ya’ll! It’s Freya checking in to remind you that I’m still on the search for my forever home. I’ve been here for quite a while now and I must say, I’m really a natural at being a Wisconsinite 😉. I even love the snow and romping around in it with my friends. If you don’t know my story, please read below!”

From the first time we met this sweet pup in Texas through our friends at Corridor Rescue, we all knew she was extra special and instantly melted our hearts. Not only has she survived being hit by a car, but she continues to thrive despite limited mobility in her back legs, and does it with a big smile on her face. Her pure joy for life and her determination to keep on moving even after what has happened to her in the past is so inspiring. We are so grateful that the amazing people with Corridor knew she was destined for great things here in Wisconsin!

She has been visiting Emily at Peak PEMF performance and has been responding well to chiropractic care and water therapy. It will be important for her adoptive home to keep bringing her to therapy to help her strengthen her back legs and continue to keep her at her best! We are so lucky to have people like Emily in our area to use as resources for our extra special pups in need. Since being up here in Wisconsin, her walking has improved so much and she is getting better each day with going potty on her own outside!

Freya is the sweetest girl you will ever meet. She has not met anyone she doesn’t love, and she sure makes it difficult not to love her back 🥰. The more time she spends in her foster home, the more her personality blossoms. She is a bit wobbly when walking, but once she starts to run around, she is off to the races!! Falling down is part of her routine, but with her amazing resilience, she gets right back up to try again. Nothing can keep this girl down! Freya is a big fan of playing with her doggie foster siblings and would love to go to a home with another dog. She also has a lot of fun playing with her toys ❤️

Freya is approximately 3 years old and just under 60 pounds. As most rescue dogs, her breed is a best guess and she is listed as a mix. Her ideal home will be prepared to give her the extra special care that she needs to be the best dog she can be.

 

Ginny!

Ginny was originally spotted right before the big TX freeze. Her TX foster mom, Kristyna, saw her and knew she wanted to save her. She set a trap and Ginny went in. Unfortunately, the door didn’t latch all the way and Ginny snuck out and was free once again. This broke Kristyna’s heart. She kept replaying the incident in her head. The following day, in an exciting turn of events, Kristyna found out that Ginny had been secured in a neighbor’s backyard! She was SAFE! Over the next few weeks Kristyna worked hard to gain Ginny’s trust. She was eventually able to take her for walks, pet her and watch her become more comfortable. Ginny was heartworm positive so she went through treatment. When Ginny was done with treatment, she traveled to WI.

Ginny has been in her WI foster home for about 6 weeks and has been a great house guest. She LOVES her kennel; it is 100% her safe space. She is potty trained. Ginny loves the doggies in her foster home and loves to play in the backyard! Ginny is also cat friendly. Ginny is a quirky girl and you can tell she really wants to be a brave, confident girl and will just need some time, love and patience to get there. Ginny will need a patient adopter who will give her the space and time to settle in. She also needs a home with a very secure fenced yard.

Her ideal home would have a confident doggy friend for her to play with and continue to learn how to be a brave girl. She will hasn’t been around children but would probably do best with older children because fast movements can scare her. Ginny will be adopted on a 3 week trial basis to allow her time to settle in.

Ginny weighs about 38lbs, is estimated to be 2 years old and is a mixed breed doggo.

*Please don’t apply if you don’t have a secure fenced yard*

 

Summer! – PENDING!

Summer has been with us since August of last year and has had little to no adoption interest. Our shy girl has made incredible progress since being with us and continues to search for her forever home! ❤️

Summer has had quite the journey. She was rescued in Texas, found laying lifeless on the side of the road after being hit by a car. After a rough recovery, Summer had miraculously pulled through. She suffered some head trauma, fractures and lacerations. Despite her horrific past, Summer is happy, healthy dog who will make a wonderful companion.

Summer is almost a year old and is full grown at about 35 pounds. Though she can be a little reserved when meeting new people, she has a sweet and loving demeanor. Summer absolutely adores dogs and is most confident with the help of a four legged friend. She has been around older children and has proven to be gentle and nurturing, but sudden movements and loud noises make her anxious, so we recommend a home without small children. We are unsure how she would do with cats, but we can arrange a cat test upon request. Summer is learning to be calm when she is left alone, and has made a lot of progress in her crate. She loves going for walks and is always up for an adventure. Summer would benefit from an adopter who has patience and is willing to help her continue to blossom. ❤️

 

Finley! 

Meet Finley! Finley is a beautiful three year old Golden Retriever. He joined our rescue after his previous family struggled with some resource guarding from him, that unfortunately resulted in the owner getting bit. They enrolled Finley in a board and train program at The Becket School of Canine Training and Rehabilitation. After much thought, they came to the difficult decision that they were not the right fit for Finley and wanted to find him a more suitable home. This was not an easy decision for them, and they did what was best for Finley. Finley has taken to his training regime, and is looking for someone that can provide him with the structure and guidance he needs. He is crate trained, walks great on leash, gets along with other dogs, and has not ever been exposed to cats. He would do best in a home with no children. Finley is looking for an adopter that is willing to work directly with our trainer on his transition to a new home. It is extremely important that he stays on his training regime to ensure both him and his adopters have a healthy, happy, and balanced relationship. Stephanie will be able to give his adopter all the tools they need for success! The Golden Retriever is known for it’s laid back demeaner, and being a great family pet. While Finley does possess these attributes, he also can be challenging and is looking for someone that is compatible with his needs.

 

 

 

Travis! – PENDING!

Celebrate the holidays with a ten pound package bursting with love. This cutie is Travis. He can hang with the big dogs, or kick it with the kitties. (He is doing both in his foster home). While his exact age is unknown, we’ll call him a young adult. He loves toys- so much that he needs a reminder to share with doggy siblings from time to time. Its no big deal, as he is easy to redirect- and aims to please! Travis enjoys the company of men and women- but tends to prefer a quiet environment. When out for walks, lawn care tools and loud vehicles spook him. If he is going to be picked up, he prefers it to be from the front so he is aware its happening. He loves affection, and will snuggle up on the couch- especially if you provide a cushy blanket. He doesn’t make much noise, and will head to the crate when told. He would love a forever home that will take him for car rides, and provide some cozy sweaters or doggy pajamas for the looming weather. Travis is housetrained, and happy to spend the day on your lap when he comes in. He is into chew toys and sticks, so weekend trips to Petco are on his Christmas list. He has a good appetite, and could stand to gain a pound. If Travis sounds like your ideal new best friend, please submit an application.

 

 

 

 

 

Cardi B! – PENDING!

Cardi B is still on the search for her best fit home. She has been on a couple trial adoptions but they haven’t worked out for her, so let’s help her find the active family she has been waiting patiently for! She is always on the go and is a seriously curious pup. She likes to check out every inch of her surroundings and make sure everything is sniffed 😂. This active gal will need a family that can give her the exercise and mental stimulation she needs to be a happy dog, an active family is a must! She loves going on walks and will pick up sticks and bring them home with her as a prize. She also enjoys a good game of tug of war. When it is time to snuggle at night, this girl is all about lounging with her humans. As an added bonus, she does great in her crate and sleeps through the night in it.

She has been around dogs of all sizes and has done well with them but can be a bit much for older dogs since she still has so much puppy energy. She lived with a cat in her foster home, but thinks kitties are fun to play with, so a home with a cat that is used to dogs would be important. Cardi B would do best in a home with older children. She is potty trained but needs a consistent schedule and routine to keep it up! If you love puppy kisses, she is the right match for you 🥰.

Cardi B is a Pug mix, about 6 months old and weighs around 30 pounds.

 

 

Jax! – PENDING!

Jax is an adorable 1.5 year old terrier mix who was surrendered locally with his brother Delta. He is about 27 pounds of pure love and affection! Jax does well with men and women, older children, other dogs, but has not been around cats. Jax would do best with an experienced owner as he can sometimes get sassy over toys and other things that are considered “high reward” items. He is also still working on his potty training but belly bands have been a big help. Jax enjoys going on walks, playing with other dogs, playing with toys and bones, loves to snuggle and also LOVES being outside.

 

 

Delta! 

This handsome scruffy little guy is Delta! Him and his brother Jax arrived into our care as local owner surrenders and they are looking for a place to call their own! Delta is 1.5 years old, under 25 pounds, and is a terrier mix. He is crate trained but does whine at first, and is working hard to master his potty training so would do great with a family that is willing to help him get there. Delta is full of spunk and always ready to play! He does great on walks, loves to be outside, and responds really well to corrections from his humans. This happy little pup is looking for an active household who can show him the ropes. He does great with other dogs and older kids, but has not been around the cats in his new foster home yet (although he seems very interested). He would do best with another dog in the home. Delta’s all time favorite activity is snuggling with blankets and is looking for a family of his very own to snuggle with!

 

 

 

Konner!

Konner came to us as a local owner surrender. Konner’s family had to make the difficult decision to rehome him after an altercation between him and the other dog in the home. Konner has spent a couple weeks at the training center so we could get a better feel for what he needs in a forever home. We are happy to report that he is now officially accepting applications for a forever family!

Konner is a handsome, 6 year old Golden Retriever. He is learning to channel his anxiety in a positive way and master a calm mindset. He is crate trained and walks well on leash. Konner needs to be the only pet, and would do best in a home with no children. He loves going for walks and being outside. He enjoys time with his people, but needs an adopter who can provide him with structure and guidance. His adopters will need to be dedicated to working with our trainer during the transition to a new home. Following proper decompression and building a trustworthy relationship is crucial to Konner’s health and happiness in his new home. 🥰

 

 

 

Gordie! – PENDING! 

Hi! My name’s Gordie and I am a 12 week old, 13 pounds of cuteness! I look a little lab, but my breed is anybody’s best guess! In my time with my foster parents, I have enjoyed playing tug of war with my humans and running around with my two dog mates! My mom says I am doing really well with potty training as long as you know the signs to take me out and that is frequently! Otherwise, I may have a small accident here and there. Outside of finding anything and everything to chew on, I enjoy being around my humans and love nothing better than a nice nap in your lap after a day of play. When it’s time for bed, I sleep in my kennel all night unless I am woken up. Then I may need a potty break. But afterwards, I will go right back into my kennel with no complaints. I would love a chance to meet you and give your family lots of puppy love!

 

 

Teddy!

Teddy is the sweetest 11 pound, 12 week old terrier mix!! He is not scared to give all the puppy kisses possible. This boy is an all around great puppy. He plays well with his little foster sibling and also cuddles up with Foster mom. He is a quick learner and already grasping his name and the potty training game. He has socialized with older children and does so well! He is still learning that people do not like puppy nibbles. He is doing so well and cannot wait for his forever family to get his puppy kisses and continue training to make him the best boy around!

 

 

 

Celia Mae!

Meet Celia Mae! Miss Celia is a 2 year old 15 lb Chihuahua. She only has one eye and we are unsure what happened in her past for this to have happened. She is the type of dog that always wants to he next to you, a velcro dog. She enjoys going for walks with her people, however she is not a fan of this cold weather. She compromises and will use a puppy pad. She also was not a fan of the water in Texas. She has met and lived with adults, children , cats, and small dogs. Even though she has lived with cats, she finds it too much fun to chase them. She is very food motivated, and is happy to learn new things for food. Because she loves food so much it is best to feed her separate from other dogs as she settles in. She loves her dog playmates she lives with. She thrives and appears to catch on faster around other dogs with more confidence. She does take a few days to warm up to new people but it is worth the wait! She is a little dog with big personality. She is looking for her new best friend. Are you her new best friend?!

 

 

 

Butler!

If you are looking for a loyal companion that will be by your side, Butler is your guy! He is a super sweet and loves the attention of his people. He even begs for attention by standing on his hind legs and waving at you with both paws 😂. He has a big tail and is always wagging it to show how happy he is! Butler is believed to be about 5 years old and is a 32 pound Terrier mix. His past is unknown, but it is pretty clear that he had been living on the streets for a while when our friends in Texas found him. He was very hungry and even had a little kitten hanging around with him. He is still growing back some hair on his back and has had some skin issues but we are working on getting those cleared up. Butler has coexisted with kids in his previous foster home but they can make him nervous so would likely be happiest in a home with children over 10. He does well with other dogs after slow introductions but does prefer them to be his size or smaller and would also be ok as an only dog in the home. Butler will need a home with patience and a family that will give him the proper time to decompress and get used to a new routine. One of the many great things about him is that he is excellent on leash, and sleeps in his crate through the night! He has had a few potty accidents in his new foster home but does well with a belly band for learning and is getting better! He really enjoys snuggling on the couch, going for a nice walk, playing with toys, chewing his bones, and he loves to eat! Butler has a spunky and silly personality once he gets comfortable and is so sweet. This Texas pup has taken on to life in Wisconsin well so far and even romps around the back yard in the snow ❄️.

 

 

 

Vern!

Vern is an energetic, little love bug! He will gladly give anyone (men, women, children of all ages and sizes) licks and kisses. He absolutely loves playing with his furry foster siblings and he seems interested in playing with other new dogs. Vern is doing great in his crate during the day and at night, with minimal whining. He is working on potty training but he is still a baby. Vern is a very smart boy and will catch on to commands very easily! He has figured out how to use the doggy door at his foster house without being shown in days! After a round of playing, he is very content snuggling with his foster humans and showcasing his lap dog abilities. He is about 12 weeks old, currently 13 pounds and believed to be a terrier mix.

 

 

Chris!

Chris was born October 26, 2021 in Texas and came to foster Wisconsin with his siblings on January 9, 2022. He is about 12 weeks old, currently 12 pounds, and listed as a terrier mix. When he arrived in Wisconsin the wind chill was -11 degrees. Not being house/potty trained, he was reluctant to go outside (who could blame him?!) so his foster parents used potty pads which he adapted to almost immediately, what a smart boy! When the weather got a little more bearable his foster reports that Chris began enjoying the fenced-in backyard and is slowly learning to piddle and poop outside. He’s not quite there yet but he is a very intelligent puppy and will learn quickly. He’s learning to fetch and bring back and he loves running in the backyard. Chris likes to play with one of his foster dog siblings that is tolerant of his puppy energy, their other dog is not as big of a fan of the playfulness. He is comfortable around just about everything; people, other dogs and kids (he has only been observed with 14, 12, 8 year olds). We do not know if he has ever experienced toddlers or cats. He is a curious little guy that likes to explore and has adjusted well to his crate at night. After playing and eating, he loves to curl up and take a nap in his doggy bed.

 

 

Blazer!

Blazer is good-looking, mature, and independent. Swipe right if you can provide a mellow household that runs on respect and routine! As with any budding romance, trust takes time. Giving any pooch patience when settling in is of uber importance, and 12 year old Blazer is no exception. Adding space to the equation is a must- in due time, he will show his people affection. Once he does, he can’t get enough. Given his sophisticated nature, he is set in his ways. Whats his is his. While he can coexist with other dogs, an older set who won’t touch his toys is best. He would enjoy life as your one and only canine, and would prefer not to live with young children. He is crate trained, but will give some serious stink eye if you move his crate. He relishes the familiar, what can we say? Blazer has done well when left out of his kennel- and does his business outside. This 50 pound stud muffin still enjoys a good walk and won’t turn down a car ride. Blazer does not appreciate loud noise, or high energy levels- so we ask that families with small children not apply. There is nothing more rewarding than the love of a dog who has learned to have faith, when people have given him reasons not to. Treat yo’self to that wonderful feeling, and apply today!
