Freya!

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.

Aren’t in a position to adopt this special girl but would love to support her? Check out his Amazon Wishlist! All supplies purchased from the wishlist will be sent directly to her foster’s home!

Finley! – PENDING!

Finley continues to search for his forever home. ????
He joined MMDR after his previous family struggled with some resource guarding from him, that unfortunately resulted in the owner getting bit. They enrolled the help of a trainer, but ultimately made the difficult decision to find Finley a more suitable home. His issues stem from guarding the person he has bonded with most against the other members in the household. 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. To give Finley the best chance at success, he would do best in a single person household. He 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 adopter have a healthy, happy, and balanced relationship. 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. Could that be you?!

 

 

 

 

Kiwi!

Hello everyone! My name is Kiwi. I am a beautiful, 7 year old Husky with so much love to give! My favorite pastimes are laying on a nice doggy bed, being brushed, going for a car ride and having a good play session in the yard. My foster family has fallen in love with me very quickly. I would do best in a home with another older or calm dog but would be just fine even by myself! I prefer a home with no pet bunnies or chickens. I will let you know now those are chasing animals! When I meet a new dog I do not like to share. I only share with my dog friends I know, strange dogs can leave my toys and food to me. I’ve never gotten mad at humans but other animals around when I’m eating makes me very nervous and protective. My foster mom calls me a diva since I’m so picky with my food. Some days I love chicken, some days I don’t. Each day is a new day for me so some days they work harder to get me to eat. I prefer canned food but at times will eat eggs, rice and chicken. Sometimes I just prefer to walk around my food bowl and tip it over. Like I said….. they call me a diva!
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. Because I do not move too fast these days and have old joints, older children would be best in my forever home.
My current treatment plan is to have MagnaWave once a month. If you are unfamiliar with MagnaWave therapy it is a natural way of the body healing/managing pain. It benefits cellular energy resulting in better cellular health and function. The rescue has seen this first hand really help improve the lives of dogs! I am currently seeing Emily at Peak PEMF Performance! She is the best! She even helps another Misfit dog Freya! I am on a mild pain reliever to help with this as well as supplements to keep my joints in tip top shape!
Huge bonus: I’m COMPLETELY POTTY TRAINED!! My foster mom always says I am the only foster she has ever had that hasn’t had an accident in the house! I’m so proud of myself! She works with me on my crate as well but lets face it…. When you’re a diva and a princess, the crate isn’t always the most enjoyable thing. All in all, I’m just a snuggly girl looking for a lap or a nice couch to sleep on with some playtime in between. I promise I’ll give you so many kisses, you will fall in love with me right away!

 

 

Indy!

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!

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 4 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.

 

 

 

Eddie! 

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.**

 

Lady!
Meet Lady! Aka Lady Whistledown. Lady is a 2 year old Chihuahua mix who weighs in at 14 pounds with legs for days. This little Lady was part of a hoarding case and was taken in by our friends at Lola’s Lucky Day back in early April. She was heartworm positive and has completed her treatment in Texas. Lady is crate trained and goes to the door when she needs to go out. She enjoys being outside and laying in the sun. She is doing well with car rides. She does well with other dogs and cats. Lady is a shy girl and would do best in a home with no small children as fast movements can startle her. She loves toys and having another dog around. Like, Lady Whistledown is she also is an observer. She takes note of all the local gossip. She does play with her foster siblings but also enjoys laying around and snuggles. She is described as a smart, submissive dog who sets the tone for the manners and interactions with other dogs. She is doing well with leash training. She is looking for a patient person who will let her warm up and settle in slowly. She will take more time to trust new people however, when she is comfortable she will snuggle right up on the lap of her person. She does require a securely fenced yard because she can be a flight risk until comfortable with her family and surroundings. Like with all great things, the longer the wait, the better the reward!

 

Roofie!
Meet Roofie! This gorgeous 6 year old Husky gentleman is excited to let you know he is in search of a foster home or adoptive home! He weighs about 60 pounds and is ready to make any family that adopts him very lucky ????.
Roofie is the type of guy that needs a little extra time to get to know you before he trusts you, which we totally get! Meeting new people can be scary and overwhelming. Once he has had time to feel comfortable around the people in the home, he is totally ready to be a chill and lovable guy that likes playing with toys, going for walks, taking a nice snooze, and being outside to enjoy all nature has to offer! He is also a sucker for some scratches and pets from his humans. Roofie is the type of pup that does not agree with the phrase “sharing is caring” when it comes to food or toys, so his adopter or foster would need to feed him in his kennel and supervise his time with toys around other dogs. Thankfully, Roofie is great in his kennel and doesn’t mind hanging out in there whenever he needs to!
His ideal home would have a low energy, older dog close to his size, and teenage age children that would respect his need for boundaries and patience. Roofie has not been around cats, but with his high prey drive for woodland creatures and animals outside, we think it is best for him to be in a home without them. This poor fella is also dealing with some pain in his back hips from a possible soft tissue injury that is being managed by pain meds, and he is doing much better now that he is on them! Due to these issues, a home with little to no stairs would be perfect for him to be most comfortable ☺️.
If you would like to learn more about our friend Roofie, please email our adoptions team at misfitmuttsdogrescue@gmail.com.

 

Jace!
Jace, the handsome Husky is still on the look out for his forever home!
He came to us from This Is Houston after they were contacted by Harris County Animal Shelter about a sick 7 week old puppy with parvovirus that wasn’t doing well in the shelter environment, and was set to be euthanized. Thankfully, they had a foster ready and willing to take him in and they got him into ER right away. After two blood transfusions and a few days of hospitalization, he was able to be released from the hospital and onto a better life! Unfortunately, once he continued to be in foster care, it was discovered that Jace had some type of previous injury that made his tail paralyzed. With this injury, he is incontinent and wears diapers in the house and needs his back end to be extra clean with a little help from his humans, but that sure doesn’t bother him or slow him down! He currently does not have mobility issues, but his tail does hang down. This adorable pup truly is a fighter!
Young Jace made the trip up to Wisconsin in August and is now about 9 months old and currently weighs 25 pounds, but will continue to grow. He is the friendliest little guy and loves people, but he can be hesitant and timid at first around men. Jace loves being around and playing with other dogs and is respectful around them. He is currently being fostered with a smaller senior dog and although he tries to get him to play, he is gentle and patient. There is also a cat in his current foster home! He does want to play with his kitty friends, but listens well when being told “no” and gives them space. Playing with toys is one of his favorite activities, especially if it squeaks! On a nice snowy day, you can find Jace rolling around in the cold stuff or just sitting outside and enjoying the view ????. Like almost any Husky, he loves to be outside in nature. He also really loves walks, especially in the snow! Walks help him burn off some of his energy and are also a great way to help reduce the number of diaper changes he needs.
In true Husky fashion, Jace enjoys “talking” and howling to express his feelings. His foster gives him nightly back end baths to keep him clean and happy and he does really well with them! He loves the water and loves when his foster mom fills up a spray bottle and sprays it at him, he will try his best to catch the squirt of water in his mouth ????. He also has an affinity for ice cubes and will play “hockey” with them. This cutie is learning so much and is very smart! He knows many commands including “sit”, “down”, “stay”, “come”, “shake”, “kennel”, and his name! Jace is great in his crate and can stay in there during the day with no issues, but does whine and complain a bit at first. What a champ!
His foster mom describes him as incredibly sweet, mellow, and smart. He will make any family very happy! His ideal home would not have a lot of carpeting as it would be easier to keep clean in case of an accident with his incontinence. Jace is currently in search of a home and needs a family that will cater to his special needs. He sleeps in the kennel with a potty pad over his bed to help keep the bed clean and in the house wears diapers.
If you think your family can give Jace the forever home he deserves, please email us at misfitmuttsdogrescue@gmail.com. You can also email us with any additional questions about his care needs or about our adoption process!

 

 

 

 

Miri!

Meet Miri! ???? Miri’s rescue story isn’t uncommon for a lot of the dogs we encounter in Houston. Fortunately, Miri is one of the few lucky dogs that made it off of the streets. She was picked up by Animal Control as a stray with two other dogs and turned into BARC, a Houston animal shelter. The shelter was very stressful for her, and it appeared she had sustained an injury to her leg which we would later find out was due to being shot with a bebe. Lola’s Lucky Day pulled Miri and the two other dogs she was found with, getting them all into foster homes. We are happy to report that Miri’s friends have all found forever homes. Miri has completed her heartworm treatment, and is hoping to score a family of her own!

Miri is estimated to be around 2 years old, and weighs about 75 pounds. Meeting new people can be overwhelming for her. It is important that Miri’s person advocate for her space when meeting people. With proper intro’s, Miri warms up quickly. She doesn’t have a mean bone in her body, her initial reaction is just to flee. She takes cues from other dogs, and is most comfortable with humans with a little help from her four legged friends. Because of this, she would do best in a home with another dog. She is very curious and after a little time she will approach you. She loves a good scratch, and is even comfortable enough to rest her head on your lap when she naps. Miri has been exposed to dogs of all ages and sizes. Miri is currently fostered with two Boxers and an English Bulldog. She has no preference on male or female, and gets along with all of the dogs she has met. She is so playful, and respectful of her dog friends. We really get to see her personality shine in the company of other dogs. Miri loves her crate and it is very important that she gets adequate decompression in a new home. She will put herself in her crate for meal time, and knows when it’s time for bed. She has not been exposed to cats, and because of her nervous nature, would do best in a home without children. Miri is potty trained and will go to the door to alert you when she has to go out. She enjoys getting out for walks, playing outside, and appreciates a good nap in her dog bed. She is pretty mellow, but loves a good romp with her foster siblings. Miri is looking for someone committed to helping her navigate life and be the best version of herself. Though she requires time and patience, she will reward you with a friend for life.

 

 

 

 

 

Ryder!

Meet Ryder! Ryder is around 10 months old and currently weighs about 50 pounds. He is a shy guy who is working on building his confidence when meeting new people. Since moving him to a foster home with other dogs, we have gotten to witness his fun, playful side. With the help of other dogs, Ryder feels much more comfortable and has really opened up to his Foster Mom in a short time. Because of this, we think Ryder would do best in a home with another dog companion.

Ryder is crate and potty trained. He was fostered with cats as a puppy, but would need proper introductions to be sure both he and any feline friends are able to happily co-exist. He has not been exposed to children, but due to his shy, fearful nature we think he would do best in kid-free home. Ryder is working on his basic obedience and currently knows sit, down, come, and kennel up. He requires work on the leash, but with leadership we know he will get there in no time.

Ryder is looking for someone patient who can help him work through his fear and show him what a dogs life is all about. He is such a kind boy, who just needs someone to show him the way. Ryder is full of personality and enjoys running around the backyard. When it’s time to wind down, he will curl up next to you, or seek his dog bed for a nice snooze. Ryder has so much potential, and is so deserving of a forever home. Could Ryder be your perfect match? ????

 

 

 

Marley!

Meet Marley! ❤️ Marley is as sweet as he is handsome. This big guy weighs about 83 pounds and is estimated to be around 3 years old. His breeds are unknown, but our best guess would be a Rottweiler/Terrier mix. We met Marley in 2021 while visiting a shelter in Texas. He loved all of the shelter staff, and quickly showed us his goofy personality. In Texas, Marley was just another black dog stuck in a shelter, being overlooked. With little adoption interest, we made plans to make Marley a Misfit where he would get a chance at finally finding a forever home. Marley was adopted out by a wonderful family, but sadly ended up not being compatible with their resident dog. Marley made his way back into rescue, and recently completed treatment for heartworms. He has had quite the journey, but in true Marley fashion, he has taken it in stride. We promised Marley a forever home, so that is what we intend to find him!

Marley has a huge heart, and loves his people something fierce. He has never met a stranger and will happily greet you with all the wiggles. Marley has an adorable nub tail that is constantly in motion. He is very animated when playing, and will throw himself into the air as if he suddenly has an urge to break out in dance. Tennis balls are his favorite, and watching him play is quite comical! Despite his size, Marley walks fantastic on leash and does not pull. He enjoys spending time outside, and would love to be able to get out for walks. When the weather is crappy he walks on our treadmill. Marley has successfully met other dogs outside of the home and enjoys their company. He can come off pushy and overbearing during introductions. Marley requires slow introductions and someone who is savvy on reading dog body language. He would not be a good candidate for the dog park! Due to the issues Marley’s previous family experienced, we are looking to place Marley in a pet-free home. Cats are a no-go! He loves people, but due to his size, may knock little humans over. Marley is a great companion and is sure to steal your heart! Give this big guy a shot.

If you think Marley sounds like a good fit, e-mail us at misfitmuttsdogrescue@gmail.com. He is currently available to foster or adopt. Pet-less homes are hard to come by. If you can help Marley out by being his temporary home, visit the “foster” tab on our website to learn all about our foster program. Please note, that your application will not be considered if you have any other pets in the home.

 

 

Pugsley! 

Meet Pugsley! 💙 This dapper little dude is Pugsley. He is around 4 months old, and currently weighs 9 pounds. Pugsley came into rescue as a result of an accidental litter. The property he came from wasn’t suitable for a puppy, but luckily a Good Samaritan reached out for help. He traveled to MMDR in the middle of January with his siblings, Xavier, Gomez, and Wednesday. Pugsley’s Mom and Dad are said to be medium sized mixed breed dogs. Pugsley’s breeds are unknown, but based on his looks, our best guess would be some sort of Terrier mix. We estimate he will also grow to be a medium sized adult. Pugsley is currently fostered with 5 other dogs who range in size from medium to large, and enjoys their company very much. In typical puppy fashion, Pugsley likes to play, but is also very respectful of the other dogs. He has been introduced to the resident Bunnies, and while he was very curious, did great! Pugsley has not been exposed to children or cats. Crate training is a work in progress, but he is already making great strides. He sleeps through the night without a peep, and after some initial whining, will calm down and rest. Continuing to utilize his crate as his safe space will be very beneficial for him as he grows up. Being that he is still a puppy, accidents are to be expected. Potty training is a must! Being consistent, and creating a schedule for bathroom breaks will keep him on the right track. He is such a smart pup, and catches on quickly. Pugsley can be shy when meeting new people, but once he is comfortable, get ready for lots of wiggles and puppy kisses! He enjoys time spent outside, appreciates a good nap, and is also great riding in the car. The vacuum has proven to be quite scary for him, but all he needs is someone to help him work through his insecurities. He would love to find an adopter who is committed to helping him with his obedience, like walking on a leash, and learning his basic commands. Pugsley is a young, energetic pup who will require exercise and enrichment. This sweet boy can’t wait to find someone to enjoy life with. 🥰

 

 

Wednesday! – PENDING!

Meet Wednesday! Wednesday is a fearless and outgoing, 6 pound, 4 month old chihuahua mix. Wednesday has lived with kids and dogs of all sizes. She has not lived with cats. She does take a little time to warm up to larger dogs with her being so small. She is a very happy and loving puppy who can not get enough of toys and bones. Wednesday is actively learning how to be the best puppy. She is working hard at potty training but like any puppy needs consistency and routine to continue good potty habits. She is getting acclimated to kennel training in her foster home. She does need more training to be fully comfortable in the kennel. She is a very energetic little girl who loves walks and is mastering the leash. She already knows how to sit and is eager to learn more. She is now attending doggie daycare and loving every minute of it. She is looking for an active family who would love nothing more than to play all day and cuddle up on the couch all night together.

 

 

Frenchie!

Meet Frenchie! Frenchie is a 30 pound, 10 month old terrier/pointer mix. She was the last of her siblings not adopted since taken in as puppies. Frenchie is a very outgoing, lovable girl. She has lived with cats and dogs of all sizes. She is very curious around cats but has yet to engage much with them. She has been exposed to children and done well with them as well. Her play style is happy and energetic. She is learning to play with toys but has already decided nylabones are her favorite along with other puppies. Frenchie is working on potty training and does very well with a routine. She has learned sit and is working on other commands. She is also catching on quick to leash walking. She is very eager to please everyone she meets and can not wait to learn more. She is always very excited and does like to jump when ever she is happy. Sometimes she just jumps for joy and other times she jumps up on people for more attention. She is working hard on learning not to jump up on people but still needs someone to help her learn appropriate times for excited play. Frenchie is in search of an active family who can continue to help her learn the ropes of being the best dog around. She has so much love and cuddles to give. She can not wait to find her own couch call her own here in Wisconsin ♥️

 

Penelope!

Meet Penelope! 😍 Penelope is estimated to be around 2 years old and weighs in at a whopping 28 pounds. She wound up with our friends at the Angleton Animal Shelter in not so great condition. She was riddled with mange, leaving her with barely any fur. We are happy to report that her skin is improving and her coat is coming in beautifully. Her breed(s) are unknown, but our best guess would be some sort of Bully mix. Penelope is full of personality, and can’t wait to find a family of her own! ❤️ This girl makes her presence known. She has a happy-go-lucky personality and loves everyone she meets. Her adorable underbite is hard to resist, and she is sure to captivate you with her fun, outgoing nature. Penelope is working on crate training in her foster home and making great progress. She sleeps through the night, and after initial protest, lays down to get settled in. She is mostly potty trained, but may experience a few set backs in a new environment. Being consistent and keeping a schedule will help Penelope with the transition to a new home. She enjoys being outside, and especially loves her adventures walking through the woods. The snow is very new to her, and she isn’t quite sure what to think of it. She would benefit from someone who can work with her on basic obedience like walking on leash, and learning commands. She is a real people pleaser, but can be a bit stubborn. Penelope is quite the snuggle bug, and will always accept an invitation for a little lap time. She has not been exposed to children, and does not do well with cats. Penelope was previously fostered with another dog, and has met other dog friends outside of the home. Her play style can be a little rough, but she would do great with another active pup. If you think Penelope is a good fit for you, don’t hesitate to get your application submitted! ❤️

 

 

Noah!

Meet Noah! Noah is a big cuddly lab/terrier mix. He is 5 months old and 38 pounds. Noah may be a big boy but he still thinks he’s a little puppy who will curl right up in your lap. He is learning with his fosters some good puppy manners. When he is excited he is a bouncy boy who just wants to play with everyone. He has lived with dogs of all sizes and cats. He does chase the kitties in his foster home if he’s excited and ready to play. Noah has not lived with or been exposed to younger children. With his size, we would suggest no small children as he is still learning his size. He keeps his crate clean and is also catching on quickly to potty training. Like any puppy, he does need frequent bathroom trips and consistency to keep minimal accidents. Noah is also learning to share his items in a household with other dogs. He does at this time tell other dogs to back away from his food and favorite toys. He will need someone consistent with training so he does not guard high-value items. Noah may act like Mr. Confident however when meeting new dogs he does need slow introductions or he will shy away with nerves. Once he knows the other dog, game on! He loves to play with dogs who give him time to get to know him. He is a quiet puppy except when first in his crate will let you know he’s still there. He is doing so well with crate training and settles quickly into his kennel. He is not a fan of any naughty barking puppies outside or loud noises. He is learning all the sounds and motions city life brings. Even with all the noises, he is happy to spend his days playing outside and his nights cuddled up with you. If you are in the market for a big lovable puppy, Noah may be your guy!

 

Gomez!

Meet Gomez! ☺️ This sweet and adorable low-rider is Gomez! He is around 4 months old, and currently weighs 9 pounds. He came into rescue as a result of an accidental litter. The property he came from wasn’t suitable for a puppy, but luckily a Good Samaritan reached out for help. He traveled to MMDR in the middle of January with his siblings, Xavier, Pugsley, and Wednesday. Gomez’s Mom and Dad are said to be medium sized mixed breed dogs. Gomez’s breeds are unknown, but based on his looks, our best guess would be some sort of Terrier mix. We estimate he will also grow to be a medium sized adult. Gomez is currently fostered with three adult dogs who range in size from medium to large. He is a playful guy who would enjoy having another dog around. He is good at reading the other dogs, and respects their space. Gomez has been exposed to children ages 10 and under and while he is still working on getting overly excited, likes kiddos very much! He is learning to keep all four paws on the ground, and not to jump up on people. He will require some guidance from his humans. Gomez has never been around any feline friends, but we believe he can learn to happily co-exist in a home with cats if his family is willing to take things slow, and do proper introductions. He is still a pup, and working hard on potty training. It is important for his new family to create good potty habits and keep him on a schedule as he gets the hang of it. Crate training is a work in progress. Gomez sleeps through the night in his crate. He can get whiny if he can’t see you, but eventually calms down. Continuing with a strict crate routine will help him feel comfortable when he is left alone. He is doing great walking on leash, loves to play fetch, and is a little lap lover. He does have quite a bit of puppy energy, and would love someone who enjoys getting out for adventures. If you are in the market for a fun-loving pup, Gomez is just the guy for you!

 

 

Chicklet! – PENDING!

This little 3.5 pound sweetheart is looking for a place to call home. Chicklet is about a year old and her breed is a best guess but believed to be a long haired chihuahua. Our friends in Texas got a call from a concerned citizen about a breeder that became ill and had no one to care for her 12 dogs. The living conditions were pretty awful, and they aren’t sure how long the dogs were living that way, but we are just glad that the dogs were able to get the help they needed. Chicklet and her companions were all able to be rescued and on their way to a second chance at a happy life. She is such a sweet little cuddle bug and loves snuggling up with her humans and dog friends. Being such a tiny pup, she can be a little timid when meeting new people and other dogs, but with slow intros and patience, she comes around quickly! Chicklet is a smart little pup but is still working on her potty training and so will need a patient family that will continue to help her master that skill. She does pretty well in her kennel but can whine and protest when she doesn’t want to be in there. She is a little escape artist and can unlatch kennel doors so her foster has put her in one with a double latch and a clip on the bottom and that has worked great! She loves chewing on bones and running around with pups her own size in the back yard. She has a goofy personality and loves to play with toys and other dogs. She has not been around cats or children so that is an unknown for her, but with her mellow personality, we feel like she will adjust well to almost any home. Chicklet would love a home with other dogs as they help her come out of her shell and really shine!

 

 

Elwood!

Handsome boy Elwood is ready to make his debut! Him and his brother were surrendered to us in Texas and now that they are here in Wisconsin, they are ready to find families of their own. Elwood is a 5 month old lab mix and weighs 45 pounds and will continue to grow! This big puppy has a zest for life and would thrive with a family that is up for teaching him some manners. Like a typical puppy, he gets very excited and jumps up on people, and has a tendency to counter surf, so his foster has been working with him on the “off” command. He is currently being fostered with large dogs and cats. Elwood enjoys playing with other dogs of all sizes and can be pretty submissive and takes corrections well. He coexists well with the cats in the home but does have a tendency to want to try to play with them or lick their faces. Although he loves playing with his dog foster siblings, Elwood is very good at entertaining himself by playing with toys or running around the yard and exploring. This confident pup does have a good amount of energy, as most puppies do, but he also enjoys a good nap on the couch and a belly rub during some down time. His foster describes him as being her shadow and that he doesn’t have much of a concept of personal space. Elwood is still working on kennel training and does tend to cry at first when in the kennel, but has been working hard on settling down and relaxing while in there. Even though he isn’t a huge fan of the kennel, he does keep it dry and clean. So far he has been really good about potty training (no accidents!) in his foster home and has been letting his foster family know when to go potty by going to the door. Elwood has shown some signs of guarding certain treats and bones around other dogs, but is able to share toys with them. He hasn’t been around children and because of his size and tendency to jump up on people, would likely do best in a home with older children. Elwood would love an active family that will continue to help him work on his manners and how to be the best version of himself!

 

 

Frasier!

Little Frasier wants to let you know that he is ready for adoption! We aren’t sure what happened to him before he ended up being found abandoned in a box next to the Angleton Animal Services covered in mange, but what we do know is that he is a fighter and nothing can keep him down. Frasier is believed to be about 5 months old and is currently 10 pounds. We aren’t sure what breeds Frasier is, but one thing we do know is that he sure is cute! His Texas foster did an amazing job helping him heal from his mange and help his hair come back to its former glory! He is currently working on his potty training, but he does keep his kennel clean and dry. When he first gets in his kennel, he does protest but eventually settles down! Frasier is playful with other dogs and is respectful and submissive. With people and children he is very affectionate and just loves to be loved. Frasier is a smart little guy and knows his name, sit, and come, but could use some help with obedience training and work on his basic house manners. This little guy is a lap loving, confident, playful social butterfly that loves playing with toys, and other dogs. He also enjoys going for car rides, napping, and having a good snuggle session with anyone that is willing. He needs a home that will give him lots of love and structure, if you feel like you are the family for Frasier, apply now!

 

 

Butterscotch!

Meet Butterscotch! This little fella is 7 months old and is a chihuahua mix that weighs under 10 pounds and is all legs! Somehow this adorable little guy ended up at the Angleton Shelter in Texas and our friends saw him there and knew it was no place for a pup like him. Now that he is here in Wisconsin, he’s ready to find his forever home. He is doing well in his foster home and is still working on potty training, but with a regular schedule and routine, will get the hang of it in no time. Butterscotch doesn’t love his crate when he first goes in there but does settle down pretty quickly and is sure to keep it nice and clean while in there over night. His foster describes him as very sweet and affectionate. He loves to give kisses, loves attention, and is a good listener and takes instruction very well! Butterscotch is a playful pup and enjoys time with humans, other dogs, and cats! He has even met humans around 4-8 years old at an event and done well with them. For his tiny stature, his bark is a lot bigger than his little body. This guy is a typical chihuahua that enjoys using his voice, his foster is working on correcting his behavior but that will be something his adoptive family will need to continue helping him with. He also has a lot of energy so would do great with an active family that will give him the exercise he needs and craves! He is a goofy, fun and playful pup that would fit into almost any family as long as they can provide structure, some training, and plenty of mental and physical stimulation to keep him happy. If you feel like that could be you, apply today!
