Hello Internet...my name is Loki. Aren't I just a handsome boy? I would love to find my furever home and I have a few requests to ensure I do. First, I am super shy and can take some time to warm up and trust humans again. Please don't blame me, my prior life was not too pleasant. I am not mean or aggressive, just unsure. Second, I love other dogs and I think I do need a house with another dog to help me understand that humans are not all bad as well as a dog to help me build confidence in a new environment. I do like small animals too. My foster mom is impressed with how well I ignore the small smelly animals here at home. I am still working on potty training so you'll have to help me with that. Once I have gained some trust, I do like to cuddle in bed and my favorite thing to receive is under the chin scratches and rubs...ooooh, yeah! Third, I am okay with children if they don't make a lot of noise or move too quickly as that spooks the daylights out of me. Older, quieter children are my preference. I tend to be more shy around men than women but my foster dad takes me outside and I walk really well on a leash for him. I love to go out to watch the Yaks with him and the goofy cow that moos at me and wants to be my friend. Ooh, I love car rides too, isn't that always a plus? I have been through a lot in my little life. I am a heartworm survivor and I made it through that surgery where they did something to my  boy parts. A few vets have examined me and while they cannot agree on my age, best guess is between 1 and 4 years old...age is just a number really. Everything is new to me, I had a very sheltered life before White Paws rescued me. Simple things like a pop or snap scare me and please avoid dropping something next to me. Finally, I would love to find a home that is low-key but I also need an active home that won't let my shyness stop you from showing me the potential this world has to offer. Do you have the patience and love that I so deserve? show less

Hi my name is Noel and I am a two year old beauty. I haven't had a very good life so far. I was seen being thrown from a car, fortunately I was picked up right away and didn't have to fend for myself on the streets. That was probably the best day of my life because now I can find a family to love and care for me. I was very shut down when I first got to my foster home. I would duck and cower anytime someone tried to pet or reach for me. Mom taught me to sit prior to getting my leash on, or eating, or being loved on. I now know when I sit something good is going to happen and I am not afraid. I am not crated when I am left home alone or at night and I am a good girl. I do want to have a crate in my new home because it is my safe place. I go in there for naps. I currently live with 2 other female dogs. I am very submissive. I need a confident dog in my new home to help me gain some confidence. I live with a 5 year old child but mom says I need a home with kids over 10. when I first got here I nipped at mom when she would touch me. I never hurt her I was just scared she would hurt me so I tried to protect myself. I have since learned my fosters are my friends, even the 5 year old. I need a family that is willing to give me the time I need to decompress. I have made great progress in my foster home but still have a ways to go. Mom says her favorite thing about me is that I am house trained. I don't have accidents in the house. Do you have the patience needed to help me become the best doggie I can be? show less

Rocky is a smaller beautiful 2 to 3 year old Male. He is ready to find his forever home. He is the smaller of the 2 dogs. Rocky has really come a long way in the last few months. His coat is back, nice & soft, and his kennel legs are gone. He loves to play with Oliver and they will go at it for hours. There is not one mean bone is this young boys body. He has also learned a lot of manners during this time. How to sit before each meal instead of jumping all over you, sitting at the door to go out instead of bull rushing (although if Oliver is right there he does have to be first out). He's got a lot of energy packed into him so keeping it in check takes constant practice. He does need constant leashing as he will take off on his own. The first night he spent here I let him in the back door and he immediately trotted to the front door, hopped up, hit the latch, and promptly let himself out. Game on! He walks really well keeping a snug leash but not pulling beyond the bounds of it. He still likes to nab stuff off the counter every now and then so they need to stay clear. And it really took him a while to warm up to me, maybe he had some turdy males in his prior life. For this reason I think he'd do best with female(s) in his family. He still piddles if I try to approach too quickly, although when he approaches me he's just fine. We're working on a spot rash on his under neck area. He is still scratching and gnawing at his paws but that is getting much better. Even Oliver had some scratching issues when he came that went away after about 3 or 4 months. I have some Oatmeal shampoo to bathe him with along with Diamond brand Fish recipe for extra Omega's, and an ointment that Amber recommended. The scratching has decreased notably but his hot spots are still hairless. I keep his collar off inside for this reason, and so it doesn't get twisted around his neck when he wrestles with Ollie. show less

Hi everyone, My name is Sedalia and I am 8 years young!! Don't let my age fool you, I am very active and playful. My foster mom says I could give the young pups a run for their money. I love going for walks and playing chase with my foster brother and sister. My foster mom says I probably shouldn't get adopted into a house with cats. It's not that I don't like them, but I am extremely curious and like to chase.. Although I was left at a shelter by my previous family, it hasn't broken my spirit. I was very unsure and anxious around new people when I came to Wisconsin but with a little patience and a lot of love, I have become very comfortable with humans and want to be where they are. I didn't know any commands when I got to my foster home, but again, with some patience, love and of course, TREATS, I have learned sit and come. We are still working on stay and down. Did I mention I do really well on a leash when we go for walks. I love walks. I'm not much of a cuddler, but I've never had that kind of attention so I don't know what it is. I am a quiet girl who doesn't bark a lot except when someone new comes into the house. I have also been crate trained and am 100% potty trained. I probably don't need a crate but we are being safe now because of the cats. I sleep all night in my "house" without a peep. The best thing about a mature girl like me is that I don't chew on shoes, furniture or anything else (except maybe a cat if I could catch one). I am not food aggressive at all but sure love to eat. It is hard to get pics of me as I am a mover and a shaker! I have a lot of love to give to the right family who is willing to continue teaching me. Do you have room in your heart to welcome me into your home for the rest of my days? show less
