Ladybird is a 9 year old basset hound/beagle mix who spent the last 3+ years of her life at a shelter in Corpus Christi,Tx. We partnered up with that shelter to help move some of their seniors and long time residents who weren't getting any adopter interest; Ladybird was one of those pups. She had recently had a tumor removed from her eye and it wasn't healing well; we took her in and got her the medical attention she needed. She's a pretty mellow gal, but still has quite a bit of spunk in her! She likes car rides, going for walks, sleeping on the couch, being near her foster parents, and laying near other dogs. She isn't very playful or interactive with other dogs, but she's not mean. She generally keeps to herself and will do just about anything for a treat.
She's only had one accident in the house and will bark to let you know when she needs to potty. She would do best in a home where she is either the only dog or where the other dogs are also mellow.

Our process includes an approved application, reference checks, a homevisit, and once
approved a meet and greet with the dog. Please note that preference is given to adopters in Wisconsin, but Illinois adopters will be considered. Adoption fee is $250.

About Paddy's Paws

About Our Rescue Group...

Our primary goal is to find adoptive homes for these amazing animals that are located in shelters, rescues and foster homes. How does it work? You fill out a Paddy's Paws Application which will be submitted for approval for adoption to the Houston rescues. This application is used for Lola's Lucky Day and Houston K911, two 501c3 organizations. Why the same application for two different organizations? It helps streamline the process! There may not be a dog in Lola's for you, but there might be at K911...and you don't have to go through additional steps!

Our adoption process works a bit different than other shelters and rescues! Paddy's Paws serves as a coordinator for Houston rescues. We send out the applications, arrange homevisits and secure back up fosters for each of the dogs that will be transported here. Like most foster-based organizations, we do not have a facility and set up all appointments on an individual basis. Prior to any meet and greets, we require an approved application so we will need to go through all the steps before having you meet any of the available dogs here in Wisconsin.

The application, reference checks and homevisit are considered part of the general approval process and we cannot guarantee that a specific dog will still be available when you complete the process, but doing so will get you access to our "match making" service where you will have bios and pictures of multiple dogs that may be exactly what you're looking for! And, of course, there's always the possibility that the dog that sparked your initial interest will still be available!

Begin your application process here:

We start with the completed application and then check references/vet records. The next step is a homevisit with family and one of our representatives. Once we have gathered all this information, we provide it to the Houston team. Then, we can set up a meet and greet with available dogs.
