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. We are looking for an adult only home. 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*
Cash! – 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!
Ben is still searching for his forever home!
Ben came to us from our friends at This Is Houston. He is estimated to be around 6 years old, and weighs about 50 pounds. Ben is very unique as he only has three legs. This doesn’t slow him down one bit! In fact, Ben is full of spunk and has a real zest for life. You won’t meet a happier dog. Ben is a real people pleaser and greets everyone with his “happy dance”. He would do best in a home as an only dog. Ben comes crate and potty trained. He may be a little big for your lap, but that’s okay, he’ll take all the cuddles he can get from you! If you are in the market for a super sweet and fun tri-pod, Ben is just the guy for you!
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*
Handsome is a lifestyle, and 5 month old Humphrey is living it to the fullest! This energetic guy is more than an adorable face. Humphrey has house training almost completely down. Kennel training is a work in progress, and will require continued diligence. Apartment/condo life may not be the best fit for this guy, as he will protest vocally upon entering his crate. One way to avoid this interrupting your Zzzz’s at night, is to let him snuggle up in bed. He doesn’t take up much space, we swear! Humphrey knows “come, down,” and his name. He is practicing other basic commands, and has the intelligence and potential to learn so many more. He enjoys the company of other dogs, and is excellent at taking their cues when they aren’t into play time. (He has even accepted that the tiny Chihuahua in his foster home is the boss!) Having another canine in his crew would definitely help build his confidence, but being your family’s one and only would not be a deal breaker. Humphrey can be quite shy when making the acquaintance of new humans, unless they are of the small variety. The littles make his tail wag at 80 mph. He has a big bark, sometimes when guests arrive- but don’t let it scare anyone off. He warms up quickly with reassurance. You may even get a sprinkle of excited tinkle once you are good pals. Humphrey is very clingy, and tends to follow his foster mom from room to room. He is sweet, and his need to be with you is very endearing. This fur kid is ready for a nurturing forever home.
This sweet and playful girl is Lana. She is a 5 month old rat terrier mix who weighs about 15lbs. She traveled all the way from Texas to Wisconsin looking for a family to call her own. Lana needs a patient adopter who will allow her some time to warm up to her new surroundings. It can take a few days but then she really comes out of her shell and lets her personality shine. Lana loves all people, especially kids, and will cover anyone and everyone in kisses. She gets along with other dogs and loves playing and wrestling around with them. She does okay with tolerant cats but does try to play with them at times. Lana is almost completely potty trained and is also crate trained. Her best day is spent playing with her toys, spending some time outside exploring and sniffing all the good smells, chewing a tasty bone, and snuggling up with her humans for a nap.
Mo! – PENDING!
Mo came to us from the Angleton Animal Shelter in Texas. He is around 4 months old and weighs just under 50 pounds. Our vet estimates that he will grow to be a big boy! Mo is an absolute teddy bear, and loves to cuddle. He is currently being fostered two two big dogs and does great. He loves the company of other dogs and is especially fond of the Boxer in his foster home due to the fact that they have a similar play style. When Mo isn’t playing with his foster sister, you can find him snoozing in his dog bed, or someone’s lap. He absolutely adores people and is the perfect balance between playful and laid back. Mo is mostly house broken and will even go sit in front of the door when he has to go out. He is also great in his crate! Mo is an all around good boy, and would make a wonderful additional to just about any household!

Chester went through heartworm treatment prior to traveling to WI. Chester is a hunky beef cake who likes every dog he has met. He loves humans of all sorts. He is okay with cats but would do better with a cat who won’t run from him as he may want to chase. Chester is a stealthy fella and will try to slip passed any door and because of this we will be requiring a securely fenced yard for him. He is crate and potty trained, walks well on a leash and is all around a fun little friend! He weighs in at 29lbs and is about 2 years old!

Meet Summer! Summer’s story is a sad one. She was rescued by our friends at This Is Houston after being hit by a car. They found her laying lifeless on the side of the road. She was rushed to the emergency vet and miraculously pulled through. Summer suffered some head trauma, fractures and lacerations. Despite her horrific past, she is a happy, loving dog and is ready to find her forever home! Summer is only 6 months old and weighs about 30 pounds. She is very shy when meeting new people and will need someone with patience to help her feel comfortable. She would thrive in a quiet household. She does great with other dogs, and cats are unknown. We would recommend Summer goes to a home with older children, as fast movements and loud noises make her nervous. Summer is very food motivated and has made huge strides in her foster home. She willingly goes in her crate while her foster mom is home, but does protest when left alone. We have moved Summer to a heavy duty crate and she has done great! She is mostly house trained, but is currently on a schedule for bathroom breaks. Due to the head trauma she sustained she suffers from dry eye and will need drops for the remainder of her life. She is a such a good sport about getting her drops though. Once Summer gets to know you she is full of love and is sure to make the perfect forever friend!
Single brunette female seeking forever love. Interests include: Playing with plush toys, having my hair brushed, and workouts in my cart (I can really move!) My ideal date night consists of riding in your car with the windows part way down. We could hit the drive through for some fries, donut holes, or maybe a pup cup! You can spend the rest of the evening telling me I’m pretty.
My foster mom and/or the rescue can tell you all about my past, but I must warn you to have some tissue handy. After all I have been through, I may seem a bit bashful or even barky at first. But, I want nothing but affection from every human I encounter- no matter their age or gender.
While we are on the subject of open discussions, there is something I should share. I wear incontinence products, and need my bladder expressed a few times a day. If you’re new to the game, my temporary mama or the ladies of MMDR can show you all you need to know. It isn’t hard, but requires dedication as its vital to my health! I also take cranberry pills daily. If you don’t have any of my fast food favorites to hide them in, pill pockets are a nice alternative. My tastes are a bit more refined when dining at home, so please keep some canned chicken or tuna on hand for occasions when I’m not feeling my dog food. Excuse me if I request a hand feeding from time to time. Just look at me, I’m worth it!
I live with several other dogs in my foster home, and love playtime. I do forget my manners sometimes, and growl when the other dogs walk by. If you stare deeply into my eyes, and say my name I am easily redirected. When it comes to felines, I will sit through a polite intro; and then chase them like they stole my purse. Therefore, no kitties in the home. PLEASE! We can care for one another in different ways. Lets get this love story started!

Carla is fostered with dogs of all sizes, doesn’t mind men, and would love a quiet home without young children to call her own.
Iris was found roaming the streets in TX and a sweet mail lady rescued her – she was emaciated and covered in scabs with no hair. She’s looking much better now and continues to improve over time. Despite what she went through as a young puppy, she maintained the happiest personality. She is a sweet and gentle soul when she first meets you and warms up quickly – she likes to be where her people are so you will likely find her following you around. She’s very playful and gets along with dogs of all sizes. She doesn’t quite get fetch yet but will tug on a rope all day long. Iris is crate trained and potty trained too and her foster mom is proud to report not a single accident in the house so far – which is impressive for an 8 month old puppy. She would love to have another dog friend in the household but would be ok as an only dog too. She also enjoys chomping on bones and would happily dissect any stuffed toy she has access to . Iris is about 45 pounds and listed as a pitbull mix.

He is currently being fostered in a home that has exposed him to people and dogs of all ages and sizes. From infants to adults, shitzu’s to Swiss Mountain dogs, and everything in between! He loves everybody, but can be slightly hesitant with new men at first, and quickly warms up with a little patience. His crate training is going very well and he keeps it clean overnight! His foster mom says that Basil enjoys car rides, playing with other dogs, playing tug-o-war, going on walks, and snuggle time. Basil knows commands like “sit”, “down”, “leave it”, and even knows his name! He is working on potty training but since he is still so young, a consistent routine with potty breaks about every hour outside of the crate is key. Once he is outside, he knows it is time to go potty! He is still working on not jumping up on people so a home with older children would be ideal. He would do great in a home with other dogs or without as he loves his humans .
This girl lives for a good night’s sleep. Her current routine includes toing to bed at 9/9:30, sleeping all night, and rising between 7 and 7:30. She is housetrained, and will enter the kennel with the promise of a treat. Lilo does need a little guidance regarding polite greetings. She becomes very excited, and a bit jumpy. Her love of people and attention is unmeasurable. Lilo is currently 26 pounds with some growing to do. She would love to snuggle up and help you save on this winter’s heating costs. If you’ve got room for a movie watching partner, Lilo will bring the love- and you can get the snacks!

I love all kinds of dogs and I am currently being fostered with four other medium/large sized dogs. I am a quick learner and take cues from other dogs well. I love to snuggle in your lap, but I can also be found sprawled out on the cool floor or couch. I’m doing great with potty training and let my humans know if I have to go out, by squeaking and whining. My foster momma says I’m so smart! I don’t love my kennel, but I can be a good boy in there and nap or chew on toys. Speaking of toys…I love them!! I like to have lots of toys around me, the more the better!

Nayeli! – PENDING!

Large or small, she will play with them all! The same goes for humans. This sweetie pie is ready to belong! A family who will continue potty and crate training is essential. Her foster family has been doing a great job showing her the ropes, but she is just five months old- so, she has some things to learn.
Nayeli is currently 7 pounds with a little growing to do, so bring on those fall snuggles! She will provide a little extra warmth, as long as you repay her in affection. She is overflowing with love, and will follow you around the house. She is content to hang with you on the couch, or check out new toys and treats at any time. While she does need to learn proper leash etiquette, Nayeli is a top notch passenger. Strap baby girl into the backseat, and take your own tour de fall foliage!

He looks forward to his nightly snuggles with his foster family, and does great other other dogs. Chance is 100% potty trained and does very well in his kennel.
