I'm Jethro Gibbs, and my motto is, 'Follow your nose. It always knows!' I'm a true hound and love to nose around the house, the cupboards, your pockets, your feet--anything! My family says it's adorable, but they might be a little biased. Aside from thinking I'm adorable, they also think I'm a smart boy. It's true: you wouldn't believe how much I've learned about being a family dog since I first arrived. I was never sure how to express my love for people, and jumping up seemed like as good an option as any. Well, my family disagreed, and they started being reallllll bossy with me. You might think that sounds terrible, but I actually like it. I need strong leaders in my life who are comfortable setting and enforcing limits for me. I can't handle the pressure of being in charge--I need my people to be! So with all these easy, clear rules, I've become a pretty great family dog, if I do say so myself. I easily go in my kennel when my people have to leave during the day, and at night I've graduated from my kennel to a super comfy dog bed next to my foster parents' bed.

One of my foster family's favorite things about me is how vocal I am. Wait! I'm not a barker! I'm a TALKER. I talk to them all the time. I have an entire vocabulary of groans, depending on the situation. If you pet me just right, I'll let out a long, pleasant groan so you know how much I love it. If I'm really excited for my bowl of food and don't think I can survive sitting down so you'll put it on the floor, I'll give you my best complaining groan to let you know I'll do it but don't like it one bit! If we're playing tug of war with my stuffed bunny or raccoon, sometimes I'll groan to let you know I plan to WIN! I rarely bark, but I do have a large groan vocabulary. I have a feeling you'll find it just as cute as my foster family does.

Are you ready for a big, loving hound who loves to snuggle but also has energy for playing and walking? I'm your guy. Together we can stay fit with daily walks (you'll be surprised at how strong and fast I am! I'm a pretty big deal at my dog park...) and then snuggle up together in front of the t.v. I'm ready for a family to call my OWN!


Adoption Fee: $390.00

We are a Wisconsin state licensed dog rescue -WI# 402433


***We do not have a central adoption center at this time. All our dogs are in private foster homes within WI. At this time we only place our dogs in areas of WI. The breed of our dogs is our best guess with the help of our veterinarians.

Our Weight Classes are as follows:
0- 25lbs - Small
26- 45lbs - Medium
46-89 - Large
90+ X-large

If you are adopting an adult dog, which we consider 6 months of age or older, your adoption fee includes the following:

Spay/Neuter, Rabies and Distemper shots, dewormed, flea & tick preventative, heartworm tested and microchipped.

If you are adopting a dog younger than 6 months of age, the dog will be up to date on the shots as per the dogs age. The dog will be dewormed, flea/tick preventative and microchipped. We only spay/neuter our dogs by 6 months of age. If you decide to adopt a younger dog than 6 months of age, they will need to be spayed/neutered at one of our preferred clinics. This will be determined by your contract along with the month they should have their surgery. This is included in your adoption fee.

Once you are approved with our rescue, you can meet any one of our dogs within the fosters home. If you are interested in the dog you met, you can take the dog home under our mandatory foster to adopt program. You receive 5 days to see if the dog is the right fit for your home.

If it is, we will conduct the home visit and finalize adoption. If it is not, it is returned to the foster. We are happy to find you another dog that meets your needs in your home.

If a dog is listed as PENDING, a family has met the dog and planning on adopting the dog after the home visit has been conducted. We always suggest sending in an application for a dog because there are times where the dogs are given back to us under the foster to adopt program. There are many reasons dogs are returned but normally it just was not the right fit for all.

Our Adoption Process...

To begin our adoption process, please visit - there you can read more about our policies, our adoption area and fill out an online application. The applications are good for 60 days.

After being approved, you will receive an email and if the dog you are interested in is available, the foster for the dog will be in contact to set up a meet and greet to determine if this is the correct dog for your family/lifestyle. If so, you could begin our mandatory 5 day foster to adopt trial period, and if you decided to adopt, we would set up your home visit.

Any questions, please email
