Story
Ginger is a ~5 year old 23lb spayed female mix. She is a rescue from Texas, so her exact age is unknown. i am looking for her to go into a stable home as she enters her older years. I want her to get attention and love that I am now struggling to give her due to certain circumstances. She is a very friendly, sweet, spunky, and loving girl. She can jump very high, but responds to commands like off, sit, and lay down. I do have to be cautious with her jumping when she gets excited to interact with people. She is kennel trained, house trained and a very fast learner. she is good with kids and dogs of all sizes and ages. She lives with my 18mo old baby, another dog and some reptiles. She has lived with cats before. She will need to establish routine vet care ASAP for maintenance of environmental/food allergies. Please only inquire if you are able to give her a prescription diet: hills derm complete and daily apoquel tablets. Thank you!

Penny has been waiting for a home in Wisconsin since January! Yes, Penny is a pitty mix, and this breed is not adopted quickly like a doodle, lab, or golden retriever.

We need to find Penny her forever home.She is 45 lbs, completed her heartworm treatment down south while not having her forever home.Penny needs to be an only dog. She never was properly socialized with other dogs. She is great with humans. No cats, she thinks they are a fun chase toy.This girl deserves a family that will love her and enjoy some cuddles along with a forever commitment.apply at wbdr.org

Story
Serenity, also known as CiciHuskyFemale5 years oldGood with dogs and very shy of peopleCici was a surrender from an Amish farmer that the state closed down due to neglect and bad conditions. She was used for breed purposes only. We believe she had at least 8 litters. Cici needs a home with another playful pup, and a fenced-in yard is a must.Cici has a heart condition, and because of that, she can not be spayed. There is a surgery to correct it, but their is a high chance she may not make it through the procedure. We have decided to let her live out her days, and we want her to have the very best. Cici is very sweet but is shy of people petting her. This girl has not 1 mean bone in her body. She is a dog that loves to lay in front of a door and soak up the warm sun. She is currently being fostered with lots of other dogs and small kids.apply at wbdr.org

Duke (DOB 12/5/23) is an energetic and playful dude! As a puppy, potty training is of course a work in progress. He weighed in at 7.2lbs when he arrived and only time will tell how big he will get because he is a perfect mixed breed rescue pup! Duke has not yet been introduced to cats, but does well with both dogs and children!Apply at wbdr.orgapply at wbdr.org
