Miss Freya has been hanging out in Wisconsin for over a year now waiting for the right family to find her. Let’s help get her story out there!
From the first moment we met this sweet girl 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 some 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 continuing her visits with Emily at Peak PEMF performance and has been responding well to chiropractic care and water therapy. Most recently, her foster mom has noticed her tail wags more, and she has been trying new things like going up a few stairs all on her own! It will be important for her adoptive home to keep bringing her to therapy to help her continue to strengthen her back legs and 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! She is still working on being able to stand up to go number two, but her strength and balance are not quite there yet.
Freya is the sweetest girl you will ever meet. She has not met any human 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 4 years old and just under 60 pounds. As most rescue dogs, her breed is a best guess and she is listed as a mix, but we think there is some Great Pyrenees in her based on her talkative personality and coloring. Her ideal home will be prepared to give her the extra special care that she needs to be the best dog she can be.

I have bad hips so I would prefer my forever home doesn’t have a lot of stairs since it’s hard for me sometimes to walk up and down them. My foster family and the rescue have been working hard to make sure that I’m comfortable and getting the care I need. I have been seen by the vet here in Green Bay and they noted some arthritic changes noted in my hips. Since I’m an older girl with some hip issues a home with older children would be best.
Mr. Indy AKA Indy Car Racer is so excited to meet you, you and you! He loves everyone he meets! He is 1 year old 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. 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 at all times. He is working on strengthening his lower half. 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. We hope as he is able to stand more his muscles will develop more for control. He has a therapy routine with range of motion, standing exercises, swimming therapy to help maintain his strengthening. Indy is available for someone who is dedicated to his therapy and 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 is a sensitive guy who loves his people with all his heart. His journey has been anything but easy, but he has overcome all the obstacles thrown his way. Sampson was adopted out as a puppy in 2019 where he lived with his family for two years. We learned that he struggled with anxiety, and his family unfortunately couldn’t help him through it. We wanted to get to the root of his anxiety, and give him the best chance at living a happy, fulfilled life, so we sent Sampson to spend some time with our trainer. His nerves can get the best of him, so teaching Sampson to “turn off” and just relax has really helped him be less nervy. Sampson has been back with us since March and we have learned that he is a dog who thrives with structure and routine. It is important that he continues to get this in a new home. Sampson is 5 years old and weighs 60 pounds. He loves to get out for walks, and is very respectful on leash. He will happily follow along at your heels. He enjoys hitting the trails near his foster home, and loves to explore. Sampson has met older children and thinks they are pretty great, but it does take him a minute to become acclimated when he meets new people. Sampson previously lived with another dog and did fine. If there was another dog in his new home it would be important that the dogs are compatible. Because Sampson is insecure, he would do best with confident dog mate. We are happy to do multiple meet and greets to ensure Sampson and any potential dog sibling will be a good fit! We have not seen Sampson interact with cats, so we are unsure how he would react in their presence. We would love to find Sampson a family who is patient and willing to take their time with getting to know Sampson before bringing him home. Deep down Sampson is a big goofball who has a heart of gold. Take a chance on him, and you are guaranteed a friend for life.
Meet Eddie! Eddie is around a year and a half old, and weighs about 50 pounds. He is a super smart boy and has all of his basic obedience down pat! Eddie walks well on leash, and is crate, and potty trained. Eddie was placed with a family as a puppy, and unfortunately ended up not being compatible with the resident dog. He is still on the hunt for his perfect match. Could it be you?
Eddie is looking for an experienced handler. He struggles meeting new people, and requires someone who is patient and willing to take things slow. Once he has had adequate time to form a trusting relationship, you will he rewarded with a friend for life. We will help his new family along the way to ensure the transition is successful for everyone. Eddie would love to find an active family. He enjoys getting out for walks, and would make a wonderful hiking buddy. He has lived with a feline friend and did great, but would do best in a home with no kids. He has been exposed to dogs of all sizes, and it’s important he is compatible with any dogs sharing a living space with him. He would also be fine as an only dog.
We have all grown to love Eddie! Though he requires a little extra work from his people, he is worth it. Eddie has a big personality and heart to match it. If you are up for providing him with the leadership he needs, we are here to give you the guidance to do so. Please don’t pass up this sweet boy!
**Eddie’s adoption fee is being sponsored by Buddy’s Vets, located in Green Bay.**

Meet Cannoli! Cannoli is a 7 month, 34 pound beauty! Our best guess on her breed is Terrier/Lab mix and we estimate she will be medium-large when full grown. She came to us from our friends at the Angleton Animal Shelter and is currently searching for a forever home. Cannoli has been exposed to dogs of all sizes. She enjoys playing with other dogs very much. She has a vocal, rough style of puppy play, so may be too much energy for older dogs. She would love a playmate of similar play style and size. Cannoli does great with kids, and hasn’t met any feline friends. She is currently working on crate and potty training. Providing Cannoli with a potty schedule in her new home will be very beneficial. She is such a smart girl, and is sure to catch on in no time. She does well in her crate, but will whine when she initially goes in. We are happy to report she sleeps through the night in her crate! She is an energetic girl who also loves to cuddle and give kisses to her humans. Cannoli enjoys being outside, and thinks the snow is pretty great! She always looks forward to her walks, and when it’s time to wind down, will find an open lap to rest. Cannoli can be described as active, social, and lap loving. She would love the opportunity to continue learning her basic obedience and manners to be the best girl she can possibly be. Could Cannoli be the perfect dog for you?!
We are ready to finally re-introduce you to our boy Brutus (formerly Warren/Bruce)! 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 a little over 2 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 4 months 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. 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”. 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 and running around the yard with it in his mouth. Unlike a lot of us, Brutus has rather enjoyed the recent snowfalls we have experienced and will run around in the snow and chase after snowballs! After some extended decompression time, Brutus has been introduced to the dogs in his foster home and has done very well with them under close supervision. 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, NO CHILDREN! 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 getting 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 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!
Remi! – PENDING!
Gorgeous boy Remi came to us as a local owner surrender. He was becoming increasingly stressed out with the children in the home and his family knew he deserved a home that could provide him with an environment he could thrive in. He is a year and a half old and weighs about 20 pounds and is a mini Australian Shepherd. With his breed comes a lot of energy and the need for mental and physical stimulation. Remi’s ideal owners will need to be up for the challenge to keep up with his antics and keep him active physically and mentally! Since being in his foster home, Remi has made great strides and has really come out of his shell after some decompression time. At first he can be pretty shy with new people and takes some time to warm up, so patience is key with him! He has been doing well in his crate but does protest a bit when first put in there and settles down pretty quickly and has improved every day! This smart boy has not had any accidents in his foster home with the routine he has been on, and he keeps his crate clean too. Remi would do best in a home without small children as he can be easily stressed by loud noises and quick, excited movements. He has met other dogs on leash and does get a bit fearful and reserved, but has been having a great time with the neighbor dog and is excited and playful with him. Remi loves playing with toys, being outside, and being close to his humans. He isn’t much of a cuddler but enjoys a nice nap and sucking on his blankets. Another activity he has enjoyed is going on hikes and lots of walks with his foster dad, up to two hours a day! Remi is still fine tuning some skills like recall, meeting new people, walking on a leash (not pulling), and general obedience. His ideal home will be patient and take the time to bond at his pace, will provide Remi with a structured routine and continued training. He is going to be a great addition to the right family! Could it be yours?
Meet Stella! We took Stella and her puppies into rescue after we were notified that they were living outside, wandering around a trailer park in Texas. Stella’s puppies have all found wonderful homes, but unfortunately Stella tested positive for heartworms and her travel was delayed until she was able to complete treatment. We are happy to report she is now healthy and ready to find a forever home of her own! Stella is estimated to be around 2 years old, and is full grown at 20 pounds. Our best guess on her breed would be some sort of Terrier mix. Stella has been such a great guest in her foster home. She loves her crate, is potty trained, and does well with children and dogs, both big and small. We have not witnessed Stella with any feline friends. The key to Stella’s heart is patience, and slow introductions to people. She initially comes off shy, but warms up quickly. Her foster family reports that it took her about 3 days to get acclimated and comfortable with everyone in the home. Proper decompression is essential for Stella in her new home. Once she has become comfortable, she shows off her sweet personality. Stella is very affectionate and loves to cuddle. She also enjoys going for walks, playing with her canine friends, and rides in the car like a champ. Stella would love to find a home with another dog mate. If you think you have the patience Stella needs, and can dedicate time to helping her continue to come out of her shell, don’t pass this brindle beauty up!
Babykins! – PENDING!
Meet Babykins! Babykins is around 3 years old and weighs 5 pounds. This Chihuahua Mix may be little but she has a big personality and lots of love to give. We like to refer to Babykins as a sour patch kid, sour and then sweet. She was very nervous and unsure of the people in her new foster home, but after a few days started to settle in. In true Chihuahua fashion she attaches to her person, and in her current foster home that’s her foster Dad. She follows him everywhere and sometimes likes to think she needs to protect him. We know Babykins is cute and little, but she would love an adopter who can hold her accountable. Babykins is fostered with dogs of all sizes and gets along great with everyone. She would love a home with another dog who will run around and play with her, though she would also do well as an only dog. Babykins would do best in a home with no children. She is a curious gal and enjoys exploring the house and the backyard. She also enjoys a good chew bone too! When she is all tuckered out she will snuggle in on your lap or burrow under a blanket. She even enjoys being held like a baby. Babykins will protest her crate when she first goes in but settles in quickly. She is working hard at potty training and does well with a schedule and going out potty every few hours while you are home. Babykins would love an adopter who has breed experience though it’s not necessary.
Meet Graham! This handsome Pyrenees mix is estimated to be about 4 months old, and currently weighs 32 pounds. He made his MMDR debut after he wound up at the Angleton Animal Shelter. Graham has been in his foster home since May 19th, and here is what we know so far! Graham is currently fostered with a Golden Retriever, and was previously exposed to big dogs. He loves the company of other dogs, and despite being a puppy, he is very respectful of his canine friends. He picks up on their cues and is very submissive and social. His foster family has taken him hiking and he had the best time! Graham is fearless and had an absolute blast running through the woods. He also really enjoyed wading in the water. Graham has quite a bit of energy and can’t get enough of the outdoors. It’s important he has an outlet to expel his energy. In true Pyrenees fashion, he will “supervise” his yard, keeping an eye on the neighbors and watching all the birds and squirrels. Nothing gets passed Graham Cracker! Graham is a very smart boy, and picks up on new tasks quickly. He is currently mastering calmness in his crate and potty training. We are happy to report that he has been doing great with crate training. He will whine a bit at first, but settles right in. Keeping Graham on a solid routine and crate schedule will ensure he stays on the right track with potty training. Graham is eager to learn and will thrive with someone who can continue to work on his manners, and obedience. Graham would do best with an owner who has experience with Guardian breeds and understands their needs in a home. This good boy would love to find someone who is also active, and can enjoy all that Wisconsin has to offer! If you think Graham sounds like the perfect pup for you, get your application in. We can promise you don’t want to pass this guy up!
Meet Fletcher! Fletcher is estimated to be around 3 months old and currently weighs 23 pounds. We are unsure of his breed(s), but our best guess would be a Terrier mix. We believe Fletcher will be medium in size when full grown. He came to MMDR after being surrendered to the Angleton Animal Shelter. Lucky for Fletcher, a foster stepped up for him and sprung him out of the shelter where he now is on the hunt for a forever home! Fletcher has the kindest eyes, and is sure to melt your heart. He is such a friendly, affectionate pup, who wants all your love. Fletcher is currently fostered with a small breed senior dog, and is very respectful. He enjoys the company of other dogs very much, and lived with larger dogs in his previous foster home. We are unsure how Fletcher would be with cats, but we can confident he could learn to co-exist with adequate time and work. Fletcher is such a good boy! He does great in his crate and has been doing fantastic with potty training. He is motivated to learn, and picks up on new tasks quickly. Fletcher requires an adopter who is up for his puppy energy, and who will continue to help him continue to work on his manners and obedience. Fletcher would make the perfect adventure buddy, and loves hitting the walking trails near his foster home. Could Fletcher be the perfect guy for you?!
Miss Marshmallow here! I’m ready to make my adoption debut. I’m told that I’m a Great Pyrenees mix, am about 4 months old, and I weigh just under 30 pounds with lots of room to grow as I get older. My foster mom says that I love everyone I meet whether they are furry friends or human variety. I have not been around children or cats in my current foster home, so I’m not sure what I think about them yet. One of my favorite activities beside playing with my toys, is laying in the back yard and soaking up the sun during a nice nap! Another activity that I find awesome is playing in the kiddie pool, I love to splash around in there. I’ve been told I have typical puppy tendencies that need some work, like jumping up on people when I’m excited, walking with that weird thing called a leash, potty training, and overall fine tuning my manners and obedience. I LOVE going for car rides and sticking my head out the window, and giving kisses and hugs to my human friends. My foster siblings are bigger than me and so fun to play with and I get so excited to spend time romping around with them! Doggy daycare is extra fun for me because there are all kinds of dogs for me to play with and make friends! I’m a curious and active girl that is going to continue to grow, so would do best with a fun loving family that enjoys the outdoors and wants to exercise with me to keep me happy!
Riley! – PENDING!
Meet Riley! Riley is a beautiful three(ish) year old Boxer. Like a lot of our dogs, Riley’s journey began in Texas. She was surrendered to our friends at the Angleton Animal Shelter, and shortly after moved to a foster home where she waited to be able to travel to Wisconsin. Riley was an owned dog who spent her days living outside on someone’s porch. Because of this, Riley ended up being positive for heartworms. She has undergone treatment, and is ready to create a new chapter of life with a family of her very own. Here is what we can tell you about Riley so far…
Riley currently lives with two Boxers and an English Bulldog. She does really well with other dogs, but isn’t really playful. She very much prefers to just lounge with them, and will seek them out when she wants to take a nap. Riley has no concept of personal space, and will curl right up next to her canine and human companions. Riley is a dream in her crate. She knows the “kennel” command and willingly crates up when asked. No protesting from this good girl! She settles right in, and patiently waits to be released when it’s time to come out. Though Riley has never had an accident in her foster home, it’s important to keep her on a potty schedule. She will hold it until you let her know it’s time to go outside. Riley has not been exposed to friends of the feline kind, and has met one small child. She loves people very much, but did get a little skittish with fast movements from the tiny human. We believe Riley would enjoy respectful children with proper interactions and guidance from adults. Despite her breed, Riley is a very mellow dog. In true Boxer fashion, she believes she is a lap dog and your space is also her space. She is very animated, giving you her paw when she wants your attention, and her butt is constantly wiggling! Riley is working on her manners with people, and catching on that being calm, with four paws on the floor gets the affection she is looking for.
Riley LOVES going for walks. She is wonderful on leash, and happily walks at your heel, without pulling. She is such a joy to walk with, and though she doesn’t require a lot of exercise, she would appreciate someone who can commit to walking her. She also loves soaking up the run-rays. She will lay outside until you make her come back inside. Riley can he described as laid-back, loving, and oh so sweet. She has an amazing temperament, and has been the perfect guest. Riley would thrive with someone who can continue to provide her with leadership, and who has a good understanding of the Boxer breed. Looking for an adventure buddy? Someone to accompany you to the beautiful state parks Wisconsin has to offer, or hang out while enjoying a beer at your local brewery? Riley just may be the perfect girl for you. While she is all for backyard hangs, she would love to be a dog who gets out and explores!
*Riley is currently available for foster-to-adopt to residents in the Green Bay only. She is still positive for microfilaria (baby heartworms) and requires additional treatment from the rescue vet. Her re-check date isn’t until August. At this time we will also access if she is able to go under anesthesia to have a lump on her leg removed. Her vetting will be covered under the rescue until she is medically cleared for adoption, however her adopter will be required to get her to the rescue vet (Parkside Animal Care Center) for her follow up appointments*

Mocha! – PENDING!
This beautiful little pup is ready to start the hunt for her new family! Our sweet little Mocha is only about 12 weeks old and weighs around 10 pounds, but with her being a Catahoula mix, she is likely to grow up to be a medium sized dog. She is currently being fostered in a home that is an at-home daycare so she is used to people coming and going and loves everyone she meets no matter what size they are, and also thinks everyone should love her too! She also loves other dogs and has been doing very well taking corrections from them while playing if she is being too energetic. Mocha’s foster says she is a puppy with a zest for life! She has a lot of energy and can be a very sweet pup, but also has a feisty side to her. She would do best with clear boundaries and a consistent schedule along with plenty of exercise and socializing. Although she has a lot of energy, she does like a good snuggle session once she is worn out. Mocha is still working on her potty training and has a ways to go, so a family that is ready to take on the challenge will be key for her progress. She has been doing well in her crate but has been having accidents in there as well, which is pretty normal for her age. Another behavior true to her puppy ways is being mouthy and nippy when excited, so she may be a bit much for smaller children. She would benefit from some structure and obedience training to help her get a handle on this. Mocha is a confident and active social butterfly that is looking for a family that is ready to take on the challenge of helping a puppy become the best dog they can be. Could that family be yours?
Chai the chihuahua is searching for her happily ever after. Let’s help her find it! This sweet girl was originally brought to the shelter in Angleton, TX and was adopted a couple years back, but was recently returned due to no fault of her own. She is thought to be about 5 years old and weighs under 10 pounds. Chai’s foster describes her as the “total package”. She loves her people and would be considered a Velcro dog because she loves to snuggle and follow the humans around in the house. She has met some older children and done great with them as well. She enjoys the company of dogs with a mellow demeanor like hers and has taken a fondness to the male chihuahua in her foster home. Chai enjoys playing with him and will even snuggle with him when a human lap isn’t available. This little girl really is a lover and will give kisses and love to anyone she meets. Not only is she potty trained, but she is kennel trained too! She can be a diva when it comes to eating her food, she is just a picky eater. But hey, no one is perfect! Chai would thrive in a home with a calm atmosphere, respectful older children would be ok, and another dog would be alright with her as well as long as they can give her space when she needs it!
